Mr. Dagang Feng, co-chairman and chief executive officer of 36Kr, commented, “With a focus on operations during the third quarter, we achieved encouraging sequential recovery across key traffic metrics, despite the impact of lingering pandemic-related macro challenges. In the third quarter, we reached a record high average monthly PV of 566.3 million for the twelve months ended September 30, 2020, marking our 10th consecutive quarter of PV growth. Our livestreaming and short-video content initiatives continue to attract increasing traffic and drive greater engagement, especially with the younger generation. Notably, we also achieved year-over-year revenue growth in our enterprise value-added services in the third quarter, demonstrating the vitality and robustness of this business segment.

“Our fundamentals remain solid and as COVID-19 containment measures are gradually relaxed in China, most offline activities are returning to normalcy. As we broaden industry-leading professionally generated content (“PGC”) and user generated content (“UGC”) production capabilities along with our innovative and attractive value-added services, we are well positioned in the booming New Economy community. Supported by our stellar brand, we will continue our strategic efforts to boost the diversity of our product and service offerings, optimize our network communities, increase our customer base and further explore new growth opportunities to improve our monetization capabilities,” Mr. Feng concluded.

Ms. Jihong Liang, director, and chief financial officer of 36Kr, stated, “Despite the challenging operating environment, our third quarter financial performance showed meaningful improvement, particularly on a quarter-over-quarter basis. Nevertheless, our total revenues in this quarter slightly decreased on a year-over-year basis, which was primarily attributable to the lingering impact of COVID-19. We have achieved positive operating cash flow for the second consecutive quarter, which further reflects our capabilities to navigate market dynamics. In addition, our account receivables continued to improve, supported by our adjusted prepayment policies and our optimization of client base for a better quality. Moreover, we maintained prudent investment in technologies that are critical to further innovation and future growth. We remain committed to the promising development of the New Economy and believe our competitive strengths will allow us to withstand challenges and thrive in the community with our partners.”

Total revenues were RMB123.5 million (US$18.2 million) in the third quarter of 2020, compared to RMB130.9 million in the same period of 2019.

  • Online advertising services revenues decreased by 5.5% to RMB51.1 million (US$7.5 million) in the third quarter of 2020, from RMB54.1 million in the same period of 2019. The decrease was primarily attributable to the relatively weak demand from certain advertisers in the wake of COVID-19.
     
  • Enterprise value-added services revenues increased by 3.8% to RMB66.4 million (US$9.8 million) in the third quarter of 2020, from RMB64.0 million in the same period of 2019.

  • Subscription services revenues were RMB6.0 million (US$0.9 million) in the third quarter of 2020, compared to RMB12.9 million in the same period of 2019. The decrease was primarily attributable to the decrease of individual subscription revenues associated with relatively weak demand.

Operating expenses were RMB63.2 million (US$9.3 million) in the third quarter of 2020, compared to RMB77.9 million in the same period of 2019. The decrease was mainly due to decrease in general and administrative expenses in the third quarter of 2020.

  • Sales and marketing expenses were RMB31.6 million (US$4.7 million) in the third quarter of 2020, compared to RMB31.8 million in the same period of 2019.

  • Research and development expenses increased by 28.6% to RMB11.2 million (US$1.6 million) in the third quarter of 2020, compared to RMB8.7 million in the same period of 2019.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating its business, the Company considers and uses two non-GAAP measures, adjusted net income/(loss) and adjusted EBITDA, as supplemental measures to review and assess its operating performance. The presentation of these two non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company presents these non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by the Company’s management to evaluate its operating performance and formulate business plans. The Company also believes that the use of these non-GAAP measures facilitates investors' assessment of its operating performance.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. One of the key limitations of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect our operations. Further, these non-GAAP measures may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.

The Company compensates for these limitations by reconciling these non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company performance. The Company encourages investors to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Adjusted net income/(loss) represents net income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA represents adjusted net income/(loss) before interest income, interest expenses, income tax expense/(credit), depreciation of property and equipment and amortization of intangible assets.  

For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned “Reconciliations of GAAP and non-GAAP results” set forth at the end of this press release.
