BEIJING, Nov. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunlands Technology Group (NYSE: STG) ("Sunlands" or the "Company"), a leader in China's online post-secondary and professional education, today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022.

Third Quarter 2022 Financial and Operational Snapshots

  • Net revenues were RMB576.2 million (US$81.0 million), representing a 3.2% decrease year-over-year.
  • Gross billings (non-GAAP) were RMB365.5 million (US$51.4 million), representing a 21.0% decrease year-over-year.
  • Gross profit was RMB491.3 million (US$69.1 million), representing a 4.0% decrease year-over-year.
  • Net income was RMB168.1 million (US$23.6 million), representing an 81.1% increase year-over-year.
  • Net income margin, defined as net income as a percentage of net revenues, increased to 29.2% from 15.6% in the third quarter of 2021.
  • New student enrollments were 134,987, representing a 44.7% increase year-over-year.
  • As of September 30, 2022, the Company's deferred revenue balance was RMB1,798.6 million (US$252.8 million).

[1] New student enrollments for a given period refers to the total number of orders placed by students that newly enroll in at least one course during that period, including those students that enroll and then terminate their enrollment with us, excluding orders of our low-price courses. (In June 2019, we introduced low-price courses, including "mini courses" and "RMB1 courses," to strengthen our competitiveness and improve customer experience. We offer such low-price courses mainly in the formats of recorded videos or short live streaming.)

 

"Despite the macroeconomic uncertainty and shifting industry landscape, we delivered encouraging results in the third quarter with sequential topline growth, further bottom-line improvement and increased new student enrollments. These achievements testified to the effectiveness of our strategic initiatives to prioritize profitability and healthy growth," said Mr. Tongbo Liu, Chief Executive Officer of Sunlands.

"With a leaner and more efficient organization, we further refined our product strategy in the third quarter. We focused more on margin accretive programs and allocated our capital and human resources accordingly to expand our course offerings in these programs, leading to an optimized product lineup and more diversified course content. Additionally, as we continued to hone our services to increase our user stickiness and cross-selling opportunities, we transformed our student acquisition methods, focusing more on users' lifetime value instead of investing heavily in marketing activities. Thanks to these measures, our new student enrollments for the quarter rose by 44.7% year-over-year and 11.8% quarter-over-quarter, despite a 23.9% year-over-year and 8.2% quarter-over-quarter decline in sales and marketing expenses. Looking ahead, we are confident that our proven business strategies and continued commitment to delivering premium and tailored courses to more students will help us navigate current challenges and achieve meaningful growth," concluded Mr. Liu.

Ms. Selena Lu Lv, Chief Financial Officer of Sunlands, commented, "We are pleased with our third quarter results amid an uncertain macro environment. Our net revenues reached RMB576.2 million during the quarter, exceeding the high end of our guidance range by 6.7% despite the slight 3.2% year-over-year decrease. Benefitting from our dedicated efforts and measured steps in cost control and operational efficiency enhancement, our third quarter operating expenses declined by 24.5% year-over-year and 7.4% quarter-over-quarter. As a result, we maintained our profitability with a net income of RMB168.1 million, up 81.1% year-over-year and 46.7% quarter-over-quarter. Our net income margin for the quarter remained solid at 29.2%, expanding 13.6 percentage points year-over-year and 8.6 percentage points quarter-over-quarter. Moving forward, we will continue to prudently manage costs and expenses, enrich our course offerings and further optimize our operations, aiming for continued success and additional shareholder value."

Financial Results for the third quarter of 2022

Net Revenues

In the third quarter of 2022, net revenues decreased by 3.2% to RMB576.2 million (US$81.0 million) from RMB595.1 million in the third quarter of 2021. The decrease was mainly driven by the decline in gross billings.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues increased by 2.2% to RMB84.9 million (US$11.9 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB83.1 million in the third quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily due to increased service fees paid to educational institutions and increased cooperation costs.

General and administrative expenses decreased by 29.6% to RMB44.4 million (US$6.2 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB63.2 million in the third quarter of 2021. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in rental expenses.

Product development expenses decreased by 17.5% to RMB11.5 million (US$1.6 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB14.0 million in the third quarter of 2021. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in compensation expenses to our product development personnel.

Other Income

Other income for the first nine months of 2022 was RMB19.7 million (US$2.8 million), compared with RMB42.3 million in the first nine months of 2021.

Outlook

For the fourth quarter of 2022, Sunlands currently expects net revenues to be between RMB520 million to RMB540 million, which would represent a decrease of 8.3% to 11.7% year-over-year.

The above outlook is based on the current market conditions and reflects the Company's current and preliminary estimates of market and operating conditions and customer demand, which are all subject to substantial uncertainty.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use gross billings, EBITDA, non-GAAP Operating cost and expense, non-GAAP loss/income from operations and Non-GAAP net loss/income per share, each a non-GAAP financial measure, in evaluating our operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes.

We define gross billings for a specific period as the total amount of cash received for the sale of course packages, net of the total amount of refunds paid in such period. Our management uses gross billings as a performance measurement because we generally bill our students for the entire course tuition at the time of sale of our course packages and recognize revenue proportionally over a period. EBITDA is defined as net loss/income excluding depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest income, and income tax expenses/benefit. We believe that gross billings and EBITDA provide valuable insight into the sales of our course packages and the performance of our business.

These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, their most directly comparable financial measure prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measures to their respective most directly comparable GAAP measure has been provided in the tables included below. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measures to their respective most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. As gross billings, EBITDA, operating cost and expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, general and administrative expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, sales and marketing expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, product development expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, non-GAAP net loss/income exclude share-based compensation expenses, and basic and diluted net loss/income per share excluding share-based compensation expenses have material limitations as an analytical metric and may not be calculated in the same manner by all companies, it may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider gross billings and EBITDA as a substitute for, or superior to, their respective most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. We encourage investors and others to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
