“We are pleased to see the robust top and bottom line growth during the quarter,” commented Mr. Yiding Sun, Chief Executive Officer of RISE. “We maintained the pace of our planned capacity expansion which is key to driving long-term sustainable growth, by opening 2 self-owned learning centers and 13 franchised centers during the quarter. We will continue to support organic revenue growth throughout the remainder of the year while taking advantage of market opportunities to diversify and accelerate growth momentum. Our goal for 2019 is to leverage our investments in content development, teacher training, and technology to improve our product offerings and enhance business operations. We believe these investments will allow us to further improve the educational experience for both students and parents. I strongly believe that this laser-like focus on growing the business sustainably over the long-term will help us consolidate our leading position in the market.” 

Ms. Jiandong Lu, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer of RISE, stated, “Our student retention rate during the quarter increased to 72%, demonstrating just how effective we have been at enhancing the quality of our education products and building upon the trust and loyalty parents have in us. We continue to invest in selling and marketing in a controlled and targeted manner to attract new students and strengthen word-of-mouth referrals. Learning centers opened during prior quarters are performing well and are on track to generate higher utilization rates as they ramp up capacity, mature, and contribute to revenue more meaningfully. We are in negotiations with a number of franchise partners to acquire their learning centers which are progressing well. I am confident that we have the right strategy in place to drive organic revenue growth by mid-twenty percentage for the year while generating healthy profit.”

Financial Results for the First Quarter of 2019

Revenues
Total revenues for the first quarter of 2019 increased by RMB64.9 million, or 24.0%, to RMB335.0 million (US$49.9 million) from RMB270.1 million for the same period of the prior year. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in revenues from educational programs.

  • Revenues from educational programs for the first quarter of 2019 increased by 23.7% to RMB286.6 million (US$42.7 million) from RMB231.7 million for the same period of the prior year. Starting during the first quarter of 2019, revenues from educational programs include revenues generated by The Edge. Revenues from educational programs in previous quarters have been adjusted for consistency and comparable comparisons. The increase in revenues from educational programs was primarily due to (i) a significant increase in the number of student enrollments for the Company’s regular courses operated by self-owned learning centers and (ii) a high and stable student retention rate of 72% during the quarter. The number of our self-owned learning centers also increased to 78 as of March 31, 2019 from 64 as of March 31, 2018. The Company added 183 classrooms as of March 31, 2019 when compared with March 31, 2018.
  • Franchise revenues for the first quarter of 2019 increased by 35.3% to RMB38.2 million (US$5.7 million) from RMB28.2 million for the same period of the prior year, primarily due to an increase in one-time franchise fees and recurring franchise fees associated with an increase in the number of franchised learning centers from 220 as of March 31, 2018 to 317 as of March 31, 2019.
  • Other revenues for the first quarter of 2019 increased by 0.9% to RMB10.3 million (US$1.5 million) compared to RMB10.2 million for the same period of the prior year.

Cost of Revenues
Cost of revenues for the first quarter of 2019 increased by RMB28.9 million, or 23.1%, to RMB154.4 million (US$23.0 million) from RMB125.5 million during the same period last year. The increase was primarily due to an increase in rental costs associated with the Company’s expanding operations and personnel costs associated with an increase in teacher headcount and total teaching hours at the Company’s self-owned learning centers. Non-GAAP cost of revenues3 for the first quarter of 2019 increased by 23.6% to RMB150.5 million (US$22.4 million).

Gross Profit
Gross profit for the first quarter of 2019 increased by RMB36.0 million, or 24.9%, to RMB180.6 million (US$26.9 million) from RMB144.7 million for the same period of the prior year. Gross margin increased to 53.9% during the first quarter of 2019 from 53.6% during the same period of last year.

Operating Expenses
Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2019 increased by RMB24.7 million, or 24.0%, to RMB127.6 million (US$19.0 million) from RMB102.9 million for the same period of the prior year. Non-GAAP operating expenses for the first quarter of 2019 were RMB123.9 million (US$18.5 million).

  • Selling and marketing expenses increased by 35.3% year-over-year to RMB65.7 million (US$9.8 million) during the first quarter of 2019 from RMB48.5 million during the same period last year. The increase was primarily due to an increase in marketing channel expenses and personnel costs associated with the Company’s expanding network of self-owned learning centers and growth in student enrollments. Non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses during the first quarter of 2019 increased by 37.3% year-over-year to RMB64.8 million (US$9.7 million).
  • General and administrative expenses increased by 13.9% year-over-year to RMB61.9 million (US$9.2 million) during the first quarter of 2019 from RMB54.4 million for the same period of the prior year. The increase was mainly attributable to an increase in personnel costs and office expenses associated with the Company’s expanding business. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2019 increased by 12.8% year-over-year to RMB59.1 million (US$8.8 million).

Operating Income and Operating Margin
Operating income for the first quarter of 2019 was RMB53.0 million (US$7.9 million). Non-GAAP operating income for the first quarter of 2019 increased by 24.3% year-over-year to RMB60.7 million (US$9.0 million).

Operating margin for the first quarter of 2019 was 15.8%, compared with 15.5% during the same period of the prior year. Non-GAAP operating margin stayed the same at 18.1% compared with the same period last year.

Interest Expense
Interest expense for the first quarter of 2019 was RMB9.0 million (US$1.3 million) compared to RMB8.2 million during the same period of the prior year. The increase in interest expense was primarily attributable to higher interest rate.

Other Income
Other income for the first quarter of 2019 was RMB7.9 million (US$1.2 million), compared with RMB10.9 million during the same period of the prior year.

Net Income Attributable to RISE
Net income attributable to RISE for the first quarter of 2019 increased by 1.5% to RMB36.4 million (US$5.4 million) from RMB35.8 million during the same period of the prior year. Net margin attributable to RISE for the first quarter of 2019 was 10.9%. Non-GAAP net income attributable to RISE for the first quarter of 2019 increased by 2.7% year-over-year to RMB44.0 million (US$6.6 million) from RMB42.8 million for the same period of the prior year.

EBITDA represents net income before interests, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. EBITDA for the first quarter of 2019 was RMB77.1 million (US$11.5 million). Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2019 increased by RMB11.6 million, or 16.8%, to RMB80.5 million (US$12.0 million) from RMB68.9 million for the same period of the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 24.0% for the first quarter of 2019, compared to 25.5% for the same period of the prior year.

Basic and Diluted Earnings per ADS
Basic and diluted net income attributable to RISE per ADS was RMB0.64 (US$0.10) and RMB0.63 (US$0.09), respectively, for the first quarter of 2019. Basic and diluted non-GAAP net income attributable to RISE per ADS was RMB0.77 (US$0.12) and RMB0.76 (US$0.11), respectively, for the first quarter of 2019.

For details on the calculation of and reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measures for each of non-GAAP cost of revenues, operating expenses, net income, net income attributable to RISE per ADS, EBITDA, and adjusted EBITDA, see “About Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and “Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results.”

Cash Flow
Net cash provided by operating activities for the first quarter of 2019 was RMB5.0 million (US$0.7 million) compared to RMB198.4 million during the same period of the prior year. The decrease was mainly attributable to (i) the annual increase in course prices for Beijing which took place in January this year rather than in April as in previous years, which resulted in students’ early payment of tuition fees during the fourth quarter of 2018 before the price increase took effect; and (ii) the collection of tuition fee payments in three-month installments rather than in full to comply with new government policies.

Balance Sheet
As of March 31, 2019, the Company had cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash of RMB1,293.1 million (US$192.7 million) compared to RMB1,316.8 million as of December 31, 2018.

Current and non-current deferred revenue and customer advances were RMB995.6 million (US$148.4 million) as of March 31, 2019, representing a decrease of 4.2% from RMB1,038.8 million as of December 31, 2018. The decrease was primarily due to the change of tuition fees collection schedule for K-12 tutoring courses.

Business Outlook
For the second quarter of 2019, the Company expects its total revenues to be in the range of RMB369 million to RMB375 million, representing a year-over-year growth of approximately 23% to 25%. This forecast reflects the Company’s current and preliminary view on the market and operational conditions, which is subject to change.

Unless otherwise stated, all translations from RMB to USD were made at the rate of RMB6.7112 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate in effect on March 31, 2019 in the H.10 statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement RISE’s financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company uses non-GAAP financial measures, which are adjusted from results based on U.S. GAAP. Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to U.S. GAAP financial measures are set forth in table at the end of this earnings release titled “Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results,” which provides more details on the non-GAAP financial measures.

Non-GAAP cost of revenues, non-GAAP operating expenses, including non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses and non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, provides the Company with an understanding of the results from the primary operations of the Company’s business by excluding the effects of certain transaction-related expenses that do not reflect the ordinary operating expenses of the Company’s operations and share-based compensation.

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and non-GAAP net income provide the Company with an understanding of the results from the primary operations of the Company’s business by excluding the effects of certain transaction-related expenses that do not reflect the ordinary EBITDA and net income of the Company’s operations.

The Company uses non-GAAP operating expenses, including non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses and non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating income, Non-GAAP operating margin, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, non-GAAP net income attributable to RISE, and non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ADS attributable to RISE to evaluate the Company’s period-over-period operating performance because the Company’s management believes these provide a more comparable measure of the Company’s continuing business as it adjusts for transaction-related expenses that are not reflective of the normal earnings of the Company’s business. These measures may be useful to an investor in evaluating the underlying operating performance of the Company’s business, and to enhance investors’ overall understanding of the historical and current financial performance of the Company’s continuing operations and prospects for the future.

Non-GAAP financial information should not be considered a substitute for or superior to U.S. GAAP results. In addition, calculations of this non-GAAP financial information may be different from calculations used by other companies, and therefore comparability may be limited.

Non-GAAP cost of revenues exclude relevant share-based compensation expenses and amortization of certain intangible assets (“IA”) acquired as part of the 2013 acquisition from cost of revenues. Non-GAAP operating income adds back share-based compensation expenses and amortization of certain intangible assets acquired as part of the 2013 acquisition. Each of non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses or non-GAAP general and administrative expenses excludes relevant share-based compensation expenses and amortization of certain intangible assets acquired as part of the 2013 acquisition. EBITDA represents net income before interests, taxes, depreciation and amortization.
