First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Revenues

Total revenues were RMB300.3 million (US$47.4 million), a decrease of 16.5% from RMB359.6 million in the same period of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in average revenue per paying medical service provider which was impacted from the resurgence of COVID-19.

  • Information services and other revenues were RMB199.5 million (US$31.5 million), a decrease of 28.2% from RMB277.8 million in the same period of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in average revenue per paying medical service provider subscribing to information services.
  • Reservation services revenues were RMB42.4 million (US$6.7 million), a decrease of 48.2% from RMB81.8 million in the same period of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to the impact from the resurgence of COVID-19 across the country and adoption of new operating strategy which gave higher subsidies to end users.
  • Sales of equipment and maintenance services revenues were RMB58.5 million (US$9.2 million), from Wuhan Miracle.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues were RMB106.6 million (US$16.8 million), an increase of 103.6% from RMB52.4 million in the first quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily due to the consolidation of the costs of Wuhan Miracle. Cost of revenues included share-based compensation expenses of RMB2.6 million (US$0.4 million) during the first quarter of 2022, compared with RMB4.3 million in the corresponding period of 2021.

Operating Expenses

  • Sales and marketing expenses were RMB127.2 million (US$20.1 million), a decrease of 47.5% from RMB242.4 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Sales and marketing expenses for the first quarter of 2022 included share-based compensation expenses of RMB3.4 million (US$0.5 million), compared with RMB2.3 million in the corresponding period of 2021.
  • General and administrative expenses were RMB65.4 million (US$10.3 million), an increase of 18.5% from RMB55.2 million in the first quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily due to the consolidation of Wuhan Miracle and the increase of payroll costs. General and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2022 included share-based compensation expenses of RMB7.9 million (US$1.2 million), compared with RMB7.2 million in the corresponding period of 2021.
  • Research and development expenses were RMB78.9 million (US$12.5 million), an increase of 13.1% from RMB69.8 million in the first quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in payroll costs. Research and development expenses for the first quarter of 2022 included share-based compensation expenses of RMB4.6 million (US$0.7 million), compared with RMB5.1 million in the corresponding period of 2021.

Business Outlook

As a result of the uncertainties created by the on-going COVID resurgence in China, we are unable to give revenue guidance for the second quarter of 2022.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, this press release presents non-GAAP (loss)/income from operations and non-GAAP net (loss)/income attributable to So-Young International Inc. by excluding share-based compensation expenses and impairment of goodwill and intangible assets from (loss)/income from operations and net (loss)/income attributable to So-Young International Inc., respectively. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are important to help investors understand the Company’s operating and financial performance, compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis and assess the Company’s core operating results, as they exclude certain expenses that are not expected to result in cash payments. The use of the above non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations. Share-based compensation expenses have been and will continue to be incurred in the future. The impairment of goodwill and intangible assets are non-cash in nature. All these are not reflected in the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures, but should be considered in the overall evaluation of the Company’s results. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing the relevant disclosure of its share-based compensation expenses and impairment of goodwill and intangible assets in the reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which should be considered when evaluating the Company’s performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is set forth at the end of this release.
