  • Cost of revenues was RMB214.9 million (US$31.3 million), an increase of 82% year-over-year

  • Net loss was RMB14.2 million (US$2.1 million), compared with a net loss of RMB11.8 million for the same period last year
  • Adjusted net income (non-GAAP) was RMB1.6 million (US$0.2 million), compared with a RMB 17.1 million adjusted net loss for the same period last year
  • Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) was RMB12.5 million (US$1.8 million), compared with negative RMB 11.1 million for the same period last year

Second Quarter 2019 Operational Highlights

  • Number of mobile apps utilizing at least one of the Company’s developer services, or the cumulative app installations, increased to approximately 1,289,000 as of June 30, 2019 from approximately 887,000 as of June 30, 2018
  • Number of monthly active unique mobile devices increased to 1.13 billion in June 2019 from 972 million in June 2018
  • Cumulative SDK installations increased to 26.6 billion as of June 30, 2019 from 14.9 billion as of June 30, 2018
  • Number of paying customers increased to 2,211 from 1,602 in the second quarter of 2018

Mr. Weidong Luo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Aurora Mobile, commented, “I am pleased to announce that we achieved an important milestone as we recorded our first ever quarterly profit on both an adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income basis. This demonstrates both the scalability of our business model and the continued progress we have made in executing our strategy. We also announced a new partnership with Tencent Cloud yesterday to build an open and diverse mobile developer ecosystem. The partnership will provide mobile developer communities with accounts that seamlessly link to each other’s systems, an enhanced user experience, and more joint developer service products.”

“The number of mobile applications that used our services during the second quarter of 2019 grew from 887,000 during the same period last year to approximately 1,165,000 as of March 31, 2019 and 1,289,000 as of June 30, 2019. We continue to see a steady stream of new apps that use our developer services SDK, with approximately 41,000 new apps signing up monthly during the quarter. JVerification, our new product which launched at the end of last year, has also gained wider acceptance in the developer community as we added more than 70 paying customers this quarter.”

“The higher number of paying customers and average spending per paying customer for all business lines helped to drive the 26% sequential and 76% year-over-year revenue growth during the quarter.”

Mr. Fei Chen, President of Aurora Mobile, added, “Our developer services continued to generate solid results with revenues increasing by 39% year-over-year to RMB20.2 million, primarily driven by growth in the number of paying customers, which expanded to 1,488.”

“Within data solutions, our targeted marketing revenue expanded 84% year-over-year to RMB241.8 million. Growth continues to be fueled by an increase in both the number of customers and the average spend per paying customer. The number of targeted marketing customers and ARPU increased by approximately 21% and 52%, respectively, which demonstrated continued growing acceptance of our services in the market as customers increasingly shift a larger proportion of their advertising budgets to us. Other vertical data solution revenues increased 55% year-over-year to RMB29.2 million, mainly due to the growth in our Market Intelligence and Financial Risk Management product lines.”

Mr. Shan-Nen Bong, Chief Financial Officer of Aurora Mobile, added, “Our strong revenue growth, coupled with greater operating leverage as we continue to scale our business, drove our turn to bottom line profitability at the adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income level this quarter. We maintain a healthy level of working capital at RMB566 million as of June 30, 2019, and we believe we are well positioned to drive further growth.”

Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results
Revenues were RMB291.2 million (US$42.4 million), an increase of 76% from RMB165.1 million in the same quarter of last year, mainly due to an increase in the number of customers by 38% from 1,602 in the second quarter of 2018 to 2,211 in the second quarter of 2019, and an increase in average spending per customer by 28% from RMB103,100 in the second quarter of 2018 to RMB131,700 in the second quarter of 2019. 

Cost of revenues was RMB214.9 million (US$31.3 million), an increase of 82% from RMB118.1 million in the second quarter of 2018. The increase was mainly due to a RMB94.4 million increase in the cost of media inventory, and a RMB1.5 million increase in cloud costs.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses two non-GAAP measures, adjusted net loss and adjusted EBITDA, as a supplemental measure to review and assess its operating performance. The presentation of these 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 defines adjusted net loss as net loss excluding share-based compensation and change in fair value of derivative liability. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as net loss excluding interest expense, depreciation of property and equipment, amortization of intangible assets, income tax (expense) benefit, share-based compensation and change in fair value of derivate liability.

The Company believes that adjusted net loss and adjusted EBITDA help identify underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain expenses that it includes in loss from operations and net loss.

The Company believes that adjusted net loss and adjusted EBITDA provide useful information about its operating results, enhance the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the management in their financial and operational decision-making.

The non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. One of the key limitations of using adjusted net loss and adjusted EBITDA is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect the Company’s operations. Further, the non-GAAP financial 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 the non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company’s performance. The Company encourages you to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure are included at the end of this press release.
