Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Total net revenues in the second quarter of 2020 increased by 33.9% to RMB2,508.2 million (US$354.4 million) from RMB1,872.7 million in the same period of 2019, primarily driven by the increase in live streaming and advertising revenues.

Live streaming revenues in the second quarter of 2020 increased by 35.8% to RMB2,319.9 million (US$327.8 million) from RMB1,708.3 million in the same period of 2019. This increase was primarily due to the Company's optimization of its platform's interactive features and continuous refinement of its event models, both of which helped to further cultivate users' paying habits.

Advertising and other revenues in the second quarter of 2020 increased by 14.5% to RMB188.3 million (US$26.6 million) from RMB164.4 million in the same period of 2019, primarily attributable to the Company's improving brand awareness and the corresponding increase in demand for advertising products related to streamer promotion.

Cost of revenues in the second quarter of 2020 increased by 26.3% to RMB1,985.3 million (US$280.5 million) from RMB1,571.7 million in the same period of 2019, primarily due to the increase in revenue sharing fees and content costs. 

Revenue sharing fees and content costs in the second quarter of 2020 increased by 32.3% to RMB1,754.9 million (US$248.0 million) from RMB1,326.6 million in the same period of 2019. This increase was primarily explained by: 1) increases in revenue sharing fees, which were largely in line with the increases in total net revenues, 2) increases in content costs attributable to the Company's investments in eSports-related content and market expansion initiatives in Japan, and 3) increased investment in tournament-related videos and in-house content production.

Bandwidth costs in the second quarter of 2020 increased by 9.8% to RMB168.4 million (US$23.8 million) from RMB153.3 million in the same period of 2019. This increase was primarily due to increases in the growth of mobile users and total user engagement as well as the Company's ongoing efforts to improve the viewing experience of users.

Gross profit in the second quarter of 2020 increased by 73.7% to RMB522.9 million (US$73.9 million) from RMB301.1 million in the same period of 2019. Gross margin in the second quarter of 2020 expanded to 20.8% from 16.1% in the same period of 2019.

Sales and marketing expenses in the second quarter of 2020 decreased by 15.3% to RMB142.1 million (US$20.1 million) from RMB167.8 million in the same period of 2019, primarily attributable to the postponement of large-scale offline events as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and related safety concerns.

Research and development expenses in the second quarter of 2020 increased by 12.5% to RMB94.9 million (US$13.4 million) from RMB84.4 million in the same period of 2019, mainly due to the increased investment in technological innovations as well as higher share-based compensation to related employees.

General and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2020 increased by 8.4% to RMB79.5 million (US$11.2 million) from RMB73.3 million in the same period of 2019, mainly due to higher professional service fees related to the compliance requirements of being a publicly-listed company on the NASDAQ.

Other operating income, net in the second quarter of 2020 was RMB32.5 million (US$4.6 million), compared with RMB14.5 million in the same period of 2019.

Income from operations in the second quarter of 2020 was RMB238.9 million (US$33.8 million), compared with an operating loss of RMB10.0 million in the same period of 2019.

Adjusted operating income[1] in the second quarter of 2020, which adds back share-based compensation expenses, was RMB272.7 million (US$38.5 million), compared with RMB17.4 million in the same period of 2019.

Income tax expenses in the second quarter of 2020 and 2019 were nil due to the Company's cumulative net losses and the resulting tax loss carryforward.

Net income in the second quarter of 2020 was RMB319.3 million (US$45.1 million), compared with RMB23.2 million in the same period of 2019.

Adjusted net income in the second quarter of 2020, which excludes share-based compensation expenses, share of income in equity method investments, gain on disposal of investment or subsidiaries, and impairment loss of investments, was RMB322.9 million (US$45.6 million), compared with RMB52.6 million in the same period of 2019, implying an adjusted net margin of 12.9% for the second quarter of 2020. 

Basic and diluted net income per ADS[2] in the second quarter of 2020 were RMB1.06 (US$0.15) and RMB1.02 (US$0.14) respectively. Adjusted basic and diluted net income per ADS in the second quarter of 2020 were RMB1.07 (US$0.15) and RMB1.07 (US$0.15) respectively.

Business Outlook

The Company expects its total net revenues to be in the range of RMB2,640 million to RMB2,680 million in the third quarter of 2020, representing year-over-year growth between 42.1% and 44.2%.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted operating income (loss) is calculated as operating income (loss) adjusted for share-based compensation expenses. Adjusted net income is calculated as net loss adjusted for share-based compensation expenses, share of income (loss) in equity method investments and impairment loss on investments. Adjusted net income attributable to DouYu is calculated as net income attributable to DouYu adjusted for share-based compensation expenses, share of income (loss) in equity method investments and impairment loss of investments. Adjusted basic and diluted net income per ordinary share is non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shareholders divided by weighted average number of ordinary shares used in the calculation of non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ordinary share. The Company adjusted the non-cash impact of (i) share-based compensation expenses, (ii) share of income (loss) in equity method investments and (iii) impairment loss of investments to understand and evaluate the Company's core operating performance. The non-GAAP financial measures are presented to enhance investors' overall understanding of the Company's financial performance and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measures to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. As non-GAAP financial measures have material limitations as analytical metrics and may not be calculated 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 as a substitute for, or superior to, such metrics in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Results" near the end of this release.
