First quarter 2021 Financial Results

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the first quarter of 2021 increased by 111.8% to $36.7 million, from $17.3 million for the same quarter of 2020.

Service revenues for the first quarter of 2021 increased by 108.7% to $35.1 million, from $16.8 million for the same quarter of 2020. The increase was mainly due to a significant increase in tuition fees revenue, as all of the Company's directly operated facilities in China were in normal operation in the first quarter of 2021 whereas those facilities were temporarily closed for most time of the same quarter of 2020 as a result of COVID-19 outbreak. The increase in the number of students enrolled at facilities in both China and Singapore also contributed to a higher tuition fees revenue.

Product revenues for the first quarter of 2021 increased by 208.9% to $1.6 million, from $0.5 million for the same quarter of 2020. The increase was due to a significant

students enrolled in our facilities in Singapore as at March 31, 2020. Our facilities in Singapore remained open as at March 31, 2020.

increase in the amount of merchandise sold through the Company's franchise network, as the franchisees' facilities have resumed operation.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues for the first quarter of 2021 was $33.3 million, a 15.1% increase from $28.9 million for the same quarter of 2020. Cost of revenues for services for the first quarter of 2021 was $32.6 million, compared with $28.7 million for the same quarter of 2020. The increase was mainly driven by an increase in the direct cost of directly operated facilities after normal operations resumed from previous temporary suspensions due to Covid-19. Cost of products revenues for the first quarter of 2021 was $0.7 million, compared with $0.3 million for the same quarter of 2020. The increase was generally in line with the increase in products revenues.

Gross Profit/Loss

As a result of the foregoing, gross profit for the first quarter of 2021 was $3.4 million, versus gross loss of $11.6 million for the same quarter of 2020.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2021 were $5.7 million, compared with $14.5 million for the first quarter of 2020. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, operating expenses were $5.0 million, a decrease of 63.4% from $13.7 million for the first quarter of 2020.

Excluding share-based compensation expenses, G&A expenses were $4.6 million, compared with $5.0 million for the same quarter of 2020. The share-based compensation expenses included in G&A expenses were $0.6 million for the first quarter of 2021. The decrease in G&A expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses was primarily due to the decrease in staff cost and operational expenses as a result of stringent cost control measures taken in response to COVID-19 outbreak.

Impairment loss on goodwill was nil for the first quarter of 2021, compared to $8.5 million for the same quarter of 2020.

Operating Cash Flow

Cash generated from operating activities was $22.8 million during the first quarter of 2021, versus $14.0 million used in operating activities during the first quarter of 2020. Thanks to the effective control of the Covid-19 pandemic in China, all of the Company's directly operated facilities resumed operation since September 2020. This has significantly contributed to the operating cash flow for the first quarter of 2021 since the majority of cash inflow is derived from collection of tuition fees. Moreover,

the Company has reduced cash outflow by carrying out stringent cost control measures on discretionary expenditures.

Balance Sheet

As of March 31, 2021, the Company had total cash and cash equivalents of $74.2 million, an increase from $53.5 million as of December 31, 2020. The increase in cash balance was mainly due to the operating cash inflow of $22.8 million in this quarter as the Company's operations recovered from Covid-19 pandemic.

Outlook

For the second quarter of 2021, the Company's management currently expects net revenues to be between $51.0 million and $52.0 million, representing a year-over-year increase of approximately 299% to 307%. The above outlook is based on the current market conditions and reflects the Company management's current and preliminary estimates of market and operating conditions, customer demand and foreign exchange environment, which are all subject to change.
