ECMOHO Limited Announces Third Quarter 2021 Unaudited Financial Results

SHANGHAI, China, Nov. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ECMOHO Limited (Nasdaq: MOHO) ("ECMOHO", "we" or the "Company"), an integrated solutions provider in the health and wellness market in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Third Quarter 2021 Operational Highlights

1 "Cumulative paying consumers" refers to the customers who have placed one or more orders purchasing products through our self-operated flagship stores on third-party e-commerce platforms, and the Company's channels on Douyin.

2 "Repeat purchase rate" refers to the percentage of paying consumers in the period indicated who had made more than one purchase with us in such period or in prior periods.

3 "GMV" refers to the gross merchandise volume that includes value added tax and value of the goods that are returned.                

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights

Ms. Zoe Wang, Chairwoman and Chief Executive Officer of ECMOHO Limited, commented, "China's retail sales growth is far slower than expected in the third quarter of 2021 and the recovery in consumer spending is lagging behind the recovery in income, indicating a decline in consumer confidence. However, consumer's spending on health products has continued to rise unabated, leading to opportunities for integrated solutions providers in China's health and wellness market. Leveraging the growing market opportunities, we recently expanded eye healthcare offerings with the launch of eye healthcare products and solutions on Pinduoduo's platform. We also engaged a premium supplement and nutrition brand with top-notch ingredients, which we believe will not only meet the high expectations of consumers, but will also become an important growth driver going forward. These efforts reaffirm our mission to improve the health and well-being of consumers in China."

Mr. Xin Li, Chief Financial Officer, commented, "During the third quarter, against the backdrop of our brands portfolio optimization and passed e-commerce peak season, we took deliberate measures to manage our budget, which, although led to a revenue decrease, resulted in better gross margins of product sales. These optimization dynamics will gradually normalize as we plan well for transition of this year's optimizing strategy to next year's sustainable growth."

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Total net revenues were US$28.3 million in the third quarter ended September 30, 2021, as compared to US$71.5 million in the same quarter of last year.

Cost of revenue was US$21.8 million, representing a decrease of 62.8% from US$58.8 million in the same quarter of last year. The decrease was mainly attributed to the decline in product sales.

Operating expenses were US$10.0 million, representing a decrease of 40.6% from US$16.9 million in the same quarter of last year, as we continued to control costs and optimize our operations. The decrease was mainly attributable to the decrease of fulfillment expenses and sales and marketing expenses. Detailed factors of the changes are as follows:

Operating loss was US$3.6 million, as compared to an operating loss of US$4.2 million in the same quarter of last year.

Non-GAAP operating loss was US$2.5 million, as compared to Non-GAAP operating loss of US$4.0 million in the same quarter of last year.

Net loss was US$3.8 million, as compared to a net loss of US$4.1 million in the same quarter of last year, as results of the factors described above.

Non-GAAP net loss was US$2.7 million, as compared to Non-GAAP net loss of US$3.9 million in the same quarter of last year.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating its business. For example, the Company uses non-GAAP operating income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss), as supplemental measures to review and assess its financial and 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. Non-GAAP operating income (loss) is operating income (loss) excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses and severance expenses. Non-GAAP net income (loss) is net income (loss) excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses and severance expenses.

The Company presents the non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by the Company's management to evaluate the Company's financial and operating performance and formulate business plans. Non-GAAP operating income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) enable the Company's management to assess the Company's financial and operating results without considering the impact of share-based compensation expenses and severance expenses. The Company also believes that the use of the non-GAAP measures facilitates investors' assessment of the Company's financial and operating performance.

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 non-GAAP operating income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect the Company's operations. Share-based compensation expenses and severance expenses have been and may continue to be incurred in the Company's business and are not reflected in the presentation of non-GAAP operating income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss). Further, the non-GAAP measures may differ from the non-GAAP measures used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited. In light of the foregoing limitations, the non-GAAP operating income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) should not be considered in isolation from or as an alternative to operating income (loss) and net income (loss), or other financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The Company compensates for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measures, which should be considered when evaluating the Company's performance. For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the section of the accompanying tables titled "Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results." All quarterly results referred to in the text, tables and attachments to this press release are unaudited.

Safe Harbor Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and as defined in the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as "will," "expects," "anticipates," "future," "intends," "plans," "believes," "estimates," "target," "going forward," "outlook" and similar statements. For example, the Company's statements about its expectations for Company performance in 2021, its strategy and industry outlook are forward-looking statements and are inherently uncertain. Such statements are based upon management's current expectations and current market and operating conditions, and relate to events that involve known or unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, such as the significant volatility and disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company's expected growth of the online retail industry in China, the Company's expectations regarding demand for and market acceptance of its products and services, the Company's expectations regarding its relationships with its brand partners and e-commerce channels, and the level of consumer economic activity in China, all of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond the Company's control, which may cause the Company's actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Further information regarding these and other risks, uncertainties or factors is included in the Company's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required under applicable law.
