"In 2019, we significantly strengthened our suite of online education offerings. We fortified our course products and content, trained a core tutor and growth team, and improved our standard operating procedures and process management tools. The result was higher sales conversion and retention rates with our annual gross billings of online courses growing by 125% year-over-year," said Dr. Feng Zhou, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Youdao. "The fourth quarter exemplified this progress. Revenues from our learning services and products more than doubled, accounting for 76% of our fourth quarter total revenue and we improved our gross margin. Driven by our enhanced course products and content, in the fourth quarter our total gross billings of online courses improved by 211% reaching RMB347 million. Growth in our junior high school Chinese and physics, high school physics, practical English and kids coding courses were particularly robust. In addition, we released Youdao Dictionary Pen 2 in August 2019, which drove the nearly 400% year-over-year revenue growth of our learning products during the fourth quarter of 2019. Along with e-commerce channels, we also started distributing the product through offline channels, and are currently in 3 provinces. We expect to expand to more areas in 2020.

"Our concentrated operations across the online education spectrum have provided us with important experience that we can replicate across our highly scalable model, and we are beginning to benefit from economies of scale. This serves as the foundation for our efforts to secure sustainable, long-term growth. In 2020, as we promote further student engagement and interaction, and build more high-quality products and learning content. The recent outbreak of Coronavirus concerns us all, and our top priority is the safety and health of our employees and users. We are actively working to assist the affected communities, by, for example, offering free online courses. While we are still in the process of evaluating the impact of the outbreak, we believe we are well positioned to maintain robust growth and to continue to deliver value to all of our users and stakeholders," Dr. Zhou concluded.

Fourth Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2019 were RMB410.4 million (US$59.0 million), a 78.4% increase from RMB230.1 million for the same period of 2018.

Net revenues from learning services and products were RMB311.9 million (US$44.8 million) for the fourth quarter of 2019, a 128.6% increase from RMB136.4 million for the same period of 2018.

The number of K-12 paid student enrollments increased 366.3% year-over-year to 161,100 students in the fourth quarter of 2019. The gross billings per paid student enrollments of Youdao Premium Courses increased 79.2% year-over-year to RMB1,088 in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Gross margin for learning services and products increased to 29.3% for the fourth quarter of 2019 from 21.6% for the same period of 2018, primarily attributable to Youdao achieving economies of scale, business expansion and faculty compensation structure optimization.

Gross margin for online marketing services was 31.6% for the fourth quarter of 2019, compared with 41.4% for the same period of 2018. The decrease was mainly attributable to more revenue generated from the increased distribution of advertisements through third parties' internet properties and international markets, which carry lower gross margins.

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2019 were RMB326.5 million (US$46.9 million), compared with RMB118.6 million for the same period of last year. 

Sales and marketing expenses for the fourth quarter of 2019 were RMB205.8 million (US$29.6 million), compared with RMB54.1 million for the same period of 2018. This increase was mainly driven by intensified sales and marketing efforts, as well as increased marketing staff compensation.

Research and development expenses for the fourth quarter of 2019 were RMB89.3 million (US$12.8 million), an increase of 76.4% compared with RMB50.6 million for the same period of 2018.

General and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2019 increased to RMB31.4 million (US$4.5 million) from RMB13.9 million for the same period of 2018.

Loss from operations for the fourth quarter of 2019 was RMB204.0 million (US$29.3 million), compared with RMB50.3 million for the same period in 2018. The margin of loss from operations was 49.7%, down from 21.9% for the same period of last year.

The increase was primarily attributable to the strong growth in K-12 paid student enrollments. The number of K-12 paid student enrollments increased 185.2% year-over-year to 358,800 in 2019. The gross billings per paid student enrollments of Youdao Premium Courses increased 60.8% year-over-year to RMB899 in 2019.

Sales and marketing expenses for 2019 were RMB622.9 million (US$89.5 million), compared with RMB213.4 million for 2018. The increase was primarily due to increased expenses associated with student acquisition, branding enhancement and sales and marketing staff compensation.

Research and development expenses for 2019 were RMB275.4 million (US$39.6 million), an increase of 49.6% compared with RMB184.0 million for 2018. The increase was primarily due to increased payroll-related expenses associated with an increased number of course-development and technology professionals and the increased share-based compensation expenses in 2019.  

General and administrative expenses for 2019 increased to RMB73.3 million (US$10.5 million) from RMB38.2 million for 2018. The increase was mainly attributable to increased payroll-related expenses including share-based compensation expenses charged in 2019.

For 2019, net cash used in operating activities was RMB372.3 million (US$53.5 million), capital expenditures totaled RMB18.2 million, and depreciation and amortization expenses amounted to RMB10.6 million.

Non-GAAP Measures

Youdao considers and uses non-GAAP financial measures, such as gross billings and non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders and non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings/(loss) per ADS, as supplemental metrics in reviewing and assessing its operating performance and formulating its business plan. The presentation of 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 accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP").

Youdao defines gross billings for a specific period as the total amount of consideration for online courses sold on Youdao Premium Courses, NetEase Cloud Classroom and China University MOOC, net of the total amount of refunds, in such period. The management uses gross billings as a performance measurement because the Company generally bills students for the entire course tuition at the time of sale of the courses and recognizes revenue proportionally over an average of the learning periods of different online courses. Youdao defines non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders as net income/(loss) attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to the Company's shareholders enables Youdao's management to assess its operating results without considering the impact of share-based compensation expenses, which are non-cash charges. Youdao believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors in understanding and evaluating the Company's current operating performance and prospects in the same manner as management does, if they so choose.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, which possibly does not reflect all items of expense that affect our operations. Share-based compensation expenses have been and may continue to be incurred in our business and are not reflected in the presentation of non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders. In addition, the non-GAAP financial measures Youdao uses may differ from the non-GAAP measures uses by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.  For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Unaudited Reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP Results" set forth at the end of this release.

The accompanying tables have more details on the reconciliations between our GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures. Youdao encourages you to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
