  • Average total mobile MAUs1 in the second quarter of 2022 was 49.7 million, compared to 60.9 million in the second quarter of 2021, primarily due to reduced advertisement spending on users with lower commercialization capability.

“In the second quarter of 2022, we remained focused on dual pillar approach of interactive entertainment and audio-based social networking business, and executing our diversified product matrix strategy.

Second Quarter 2022 Unaudited Financial Results

Net revenues were RMB515.7 million (US$77.0 million) in the second quarter of 2022, compared to RMB559.3 million in the second quarter of 2021, primarily due to the decreases in the number of paying users and the average amount of user spending on our audio entertainment products.

Cost of revenues was RMB340.1 million (US$50.8 million) in the second quarter of 2022, compared to RMB400.5 million in the second quarter of 2021, primarily due to a decrease in the revenue sharing fees because of a decrease in net revenues, and a decrease in the percentage of the revenue sharing fees resulted from the adjustment in revenue sharing policies in the second quarter of 2022.

Gross profit was RMB175.6 million (US$26.2 million) in the second quarter of 2022, representing an increase of 11% from RMB158.8 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Non-GAAP gross profit3 was RMB176.8 million (US$26.4 million) in the second quarter of 2022, representing an increase of 9% from RMB161.9 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Gross margin in the second quarter of 2022 was 34%, compared to 28% in the second quarter of 2021. Non-GAAP gross margin in the second quarter of 2022 was 34%, compared to 29% in the second quarter of 2021.

Operating expenses were RMB161.6 million (US$24.1 million) in the second quarter of 2022, compared to RMB190.3 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Research and development expenses were RMB70.3 million (US$10.5 million) in the second quarter of 2022, representing an increase of 15% from RMB60.9 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily due to the higher salary and welfare benefits expenses and rental expenses.

Selling and marketing expenses were RMB60.8 million (US$9.1 million) in the second quarter of 2022, compared to RMB106.3 million in the second quarter of 2021, primarily attributable to the decrease in branding and marketing expenses, partially offset by the increased salary and welfare benefits expenses. The Company will evaluate and adjust its marketing strategy and budget based on the Company's performance, operational needs and market conditions.

General and administrative expenses were RMB30.6 million (US$4.6 million) in the second quarter of 2022, representing an increase of 32% from RMB23.1 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase was mainly due to increased salary and welfare benefits expenses, estimated litigation compensation related to copyrights action and other professional service fees.

Operating income was RMB14.1 million (US$2.1 million) in the second quarter of 2022, compared to an operating loss of RMB31.6 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Non-GAAP operating income4 was RMB21.2 million (US$3.2 million) in the second quarter of 2022, compared to non-GAAP operating loss of RMB21.7 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Net income was RMB18.9 million (US$2.8 million) in the second quarter of 2022, compared to net loss of RMB29.0 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Non-GAAP net income was RMB26.0 million (US$3.9 million) in the second quarter of 2022, compared to non-GAAP net loss of RMB19.2 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Basic and diluted net income per ADS6 were RMB0.37 (US$0.05) and RMB0.36 (US$0.05) in the second quarter of 2022, respectively, compared to basic and diluted net loss per ADS of RMB0.58 in the second quarter of 2021.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial information is prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).

LIZHI uses non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating loss/income, non-GAAP net loss/income, non-GAAP net loss/income attributable to LIZHI INC.’s ordinary shareholders and non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss/income per ADS, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP gross profit is gross profit excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP gross margin is non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of net revenues. Non-GAAP operating loss/income is operating loss/income excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP net loss/income is net loss/income, excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP net loss/income attributable to LIZHI INC.’s ordinary shareholders is net loss/income attributable to LIZHI INC.’s ordinary shareholders, excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss/income per ADS is non-GAAP net loss/income attributable to LIZHI INC.’s ordinary shareholders divided by the weighted average number of ADS used in the calculation of basic and diluted net loss/income per ADS. The Company believes that separate analysis and exclusion of the non-cash impact of the above reconciling item adds clarity to the constituent parts of its performance. The Company reviews these non-GAAP financial measures together with GAAP financial measures to obtain a better understanding of its operating performance. It uses the non-GAAP financial measure for planning, forecasting and measuring results against the forecast. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measure is useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance without the non-cash effect of share-based compensation expenses.

However, the use of non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not include all items that impact the Company’s net income for the period. In addition, because non-GAAP financial measures are not measured in the same manner by all companies, they may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, superior to, or as an alternative to the financial measure prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned “Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” near the end of this release.
