Fourth Quarter 2019 Operational Highlights

-- Number of mobile appsutilizing at least one of the Company’s developer services, or the cumulative app installations, increased to approximately 1,452,000 as of December 31, 2019 from approximately 1,076,000 as of December 31, 2018. -- Number of monthly active unique mobile devicesincreased to 1.36 billion in December 2019 from 1.04 billion in December 2018. -- Cumulative SDK installations increased to 33.6 billion as of December 31, 2019 from 19.8 billion as of December 31, 2018. -- Number of paying customers increased to 2,131 in the fourth quarter of 2019 from 2,096 in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Mr. Weidong Luo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Aurora Mobile, commented, “In early February 2020, we launched a suite of proprietary outbreak analytic and monitoring systems to assist with government decision-making when planning for targeted prevention and control. The systems have been instrumental in helping the government with highly efficient implementation in an effort to contain the outbreak of COVID-19. Our team made many sacrifices during the Chinese New Year holiday and worked tirelessly since then to make this product readily available to authorities. In February 2020, we collaborated with Unified Push Alliance and other Unified Push Alliance members to jointly develop “Outbreak Alert”, a service that will be used to distribute timely outbreak information to mobile users. Both initiatives provided an opportunity for us to leverage our cutting-edge big data analytic capabilities and collaborative approach to innovation. We are proud of our contribution towards the fight against COVID-19 as we seek to uphold the highest standards of corporate responsibility.”

“We are making significant progress in terms of mobile solutions penetration and adoption of our services. The number of mobile apps utilizing at least one of our developer services, or the cumulative app installations, reached 1.45 million as of December 31, 2019 from approximately 1.08 million last December. The cumulative SDK installations increased to 33.6 billion as of December 2019, up from 19.8 billion at the end of December 2018. The number of monthly active unique mobile devices we cover increased to 1.36 billion in December 2019, up from 1.04 billion in December 2018. This was largely fueled by the increasing number of apps that used our SDK, and in particular, the rapid adoption of JVerification SDK. The number of paying customers increased from 2,096 during the fourth quarter of 2018 to 2,131 in the fourth quarter of 2019.”

“Our overall financial performance during the quarter improved materially on a sequential basis. Not only did we significantly improve our gross margin, we also improved our cost structure which expanded our bottom line sequentially. As a result, adjusted EBITDA was negative RMB8.9 million during the quarter, a significant improvement from negative RMB26 million last quarter.”

“In terms of the specific performance of each business segment, targeted marketing revenue decreased 34% year-over-year and 18% sequentially to RMB120.4 million. The primary factor driving this was the flow-on effect of a softening Chinese macroeconomic environment during the fourth quarter of 2019 and tightened regulatory policies that adversely impacted certain industries. Additionally, we continue to be highly selective and disciplined in our approach to new customer acquisition in view of the macroeconomic headwinds which resulted in us passing on many customers that did not meet our strict internal know-your-customer process. Lastly, the transition from a traditional targeted marketing model to a new SaaS-based model means changes in the way in which it impacts our P/L with lower revenues but an increase in margins. Therefore, the decrease in revenue during the quarter does not accurately reflect the progress we have made. Despite a quarterly revenue decline in targeted marketing revenue, gross profit from this business both dollar terms and percentage of revenue actually improved sequentially.”

Mr. Fei Chen, President of Aurora Mobile, added, “A notable highlight for this quarter is the significant increase in revenues from developer services by 91% from RMB17.4 million during the same period last year to RMB33.2 million. The main driver of this growth was an increase in both the number of customers from 1,265 to 1,644, and ARPU, which increased by 47%.”

“Revenues from our SaaS products, which include financial risk management, market intelligence and iZone, continue to generate solid growth and resulted in a 15% increase year-over-year from RMB25.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 to RMB29.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. This was mainly due to a solid 5% year-over-year increase in the number of paying customers as well as the continued expansion of ARPU which increased 10% year-over-year.”

“Together, our SaaS-nature developer services and SaaS products generated RMB62.4 million in revenue during the quarter, up 46.2% year-over-year. Our focus and commitment to these businesses has proven successful as seen in their strong revenue growth, the high visibility it offers for future revenue generation, and the higher margins that they contribute.”

Mr. Shan-Nen Bong, Chief Financial Officer of Aurora Mobile, added, “We’ve made very good progress in transitioning our traditional targeted marketing business to the new advertising-driven SaaS-model. Throughout the transition, we believe that revenue booked each quarter is no longer a true reflection of business performance. The gross margin, both in terms of percentage and absolute number, is the best yardstick for measuring performance of our business now and going forward.”

“Gross margins for the fourth quarter of 2019 increased meaningfully to 33.0% from 28.2% last quarter, and from 27.6% during the same period last year. This was a direct result of our optimized product mix where developer services and SaaS-based products are able to generate much higher gross margins and contribute a larger percentage of revenues. As a percentage of revenue, developer services and SaaS-based products accounted for 34% during the quarter, a significant increase from 19% during the same period last year. At the same time, we are also seeing margins improve across our targeted marketing business as it benefits from the ongoing transition to the new advertising-driven SaaS-model. This improvement in the margin from our targeted marketing business also helped increase our overall gross margin during the quarter. The net effect of our unfolding strategy is that, despite a 10% decline in revenue sequentially, gross margin in absolute dollar amount increased 6% sequentially which reflects the direction we are headed in as we scale the business further.”

“While we continue to operate in a challenging business environment that has been further impacted by the outbreak of COVID-19, we remain confident in our ability to drive growth in our high-margin businesses, and execute and implement effective cost control measures. As of December 31, 2019, we maintained a healthy level of working capital at RMB459.5 million that will continue to afford us the flexibility to drive future sustainable growth in an efficient way.”

Fourth Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Revenues were RMB182.8 million (US$26.3 million), a decrease of 19% from RMB225.9 million in the same quarter of last year, mainly due to a strong growth from SaaS-nature developer services and SaaS products which together increased 46.2% year-over-year and more than offset the impact from a 34% decrease in revenues from the targeted marketing business.

Cost of revenues was RMB122.5 million (US$17.6 million), a decrease of 25% from RMB163.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. The decrease was mainly due to a RMB45.4 million decrease in media costs and a RMB5.0 million increase in short message costs.

Gross profit was RMB60.3 million (US$8.7 million), a decrease of 3% from RMB62.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, primarily due to our strategic shift in focus from a traditional targeted marketing model to a new SaaS-based model.

Total operating expenses were RMB103.3 million (US$14.8 million), an increase of 19% from RMB86.8 million in the same quarter of last year.

-- Research and development expenseswere RMB43.9 million (US$6.3 million), an increase of 7% from RMB41.1 million in the same quarter of last year, mainly due to a RMB2.5 million increase in depreciation of servers, and a RMB0.8 million increase in personnel costs. -- Sales and marketing expenses were RMB30.5 million (US$4.4 million), an increase of 48% from RMB20.6 million in the same quarter of last year, mainly due to a RMB5.8 million increase in personnel costs, a RMB2.4 million increase in marketing expenses, and a RMB0.7 million increase in lease and office expenses. -- General and administrative expenses were RMB28.8 million (US$4.1 million), an increase of 15% from RMB25.1 million in the same quarter of last year, mainly due to a RMB6.7 million increase in personnel costs, a RMB1.3 million increase in bad debt allowance, and a RMB4.1 million decrease in professional fees. -- Loss from operations was RMB43.0 million (US$6.2 million), compared with RMB 24.5 million in the same quarter of last year.

Net Loss was RMB40.3million (US$5.8 million), compared with RMB23.6 million in the same quarter of last year, and RMB31.7 million in the third quarter of 2019.

Adjusted net loss (non-GAAP) was RMB21.0 million (US$3.0 million), compared with RMB12.5 million in the same period of last year, and RMB37.6 million in the third quarter of 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) was negative RMB8.9 million (US$1.3 million) compared with negative RMB3.5 million for the same period of last year, and negative RMB26.0 million in the third quarter of 2019.

The cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and short -term investment increased from RMB419.9 million as of September 30, 2019 to RMB431.6 million (US$62.0 million) as of December 31,2019.

Fiscal Year 2019 Financial Results

Revenues were RMB906.5 million (US$130.2 million), an increase of 27% from RMB714.1 million in 2018, mainly due to both the increases in the number of customers and an increase in average spending per customer.

Cost of revenues was RMB649.7 million (US$93.3 million), an increase of 26% from RMB517.1 million in 2018. The increase was mainly due to the increases in the cost of media inventory by RMB121.6 million, short message costs by RMB5.9 million, bandwidth and cloud costs by RMB5.0 million.

Gross profit was RMB256.7 million (US$36.9 million), an increase of 30% from RMB197.1 million year-over-year, mainly due to the revenue growth during the same period.

Total operating expenses were RMB404.1 million (US$58.0 million), an increase of 39% from RMB289.9 million last year.

-- Research and development expenseswere RMB176.2 million (US$25.3 million), an increase of 31% from RMB134.4 million in last year, mainly due to increases in personnel costs by RMB22.4 million, depreciation of servers by RMB11.5 million, and lease and office expense by RMB4.4 million. -- Sales and marketing expenses were RMB 118.5 million (US$17.0 million), an increase of 41% from RMB83.9 million last year, mainly due to increases in the personnel costs by RMB16.5 million, marketing expenses by RMB9.0 million, and lease and office expense by RMB3.9 million. -- General and administrative expenses were RMB109.3 million (US$15.7 million), an increase of 53% from RMB71.6 million in last year, mainly due to increases in personnel costs by RMB20.8 million and bad debt provision of RMB13.9 million.

Loss from operations was RMB147.3 million (US$21.2 million), compared with RMB92.8 million in 2018.

Net Loss was RMB110.0 million (US$15.8 million), compared with RMB66.2 million in 2018.

Adjusted net loss (non-GAAP) was RMB73.7 million (US$10.6 million), compared with RMB62.9 million in 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) was negative RMB29.8 million (US$4.3 million) compared with negative RMB37.5 million in 2018.

Business Outlook

The first quarter is typically a seasonally weaker quarter of the year due to the Chinese New Year holiday. This year, the COVID-19 outbreak impacted this seasonally slow period even further as businesses across China slowly restart operations later than expected. Many deals that would otherwise be closed and contracts that would otherwise have been signed during the quarter have been delayed as a result. This uncertainty and slow start following the holiday will adversely impact the Company’s business during the first quarter of 2020.

At the same time, the Company is in the midst of the transition from its traditional targeted marketing business to the new advertising-driven SaaS-model which will also impact topline revenue but expand margins. During the transition, revenue growth will not be comparable to previous quarters and will not accurately reflect the progress the Company has made or its business outlook. With these in mind, the Company has decided to suspend issuing revenue guidance on a quarterly basis in the near-term until the situation in China normalizes and targeted marketing transition is largely over.

Update on Share Repurchase

As of December 31, 2019, the Company had repurchased a total of 920,606 ADS, of which 114,958 ADSs, or around US$265.5 thousand were repurchased during fourth quarter in 2019 at the average purchase price of US$ 2.31

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses two non-GAAP measures, adjusted net loss and adjusted EBITDA, as a supplemental measure to review and assess its 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. The Company defines adjusted net loss as net loss excluding share-based compensation and change in fair value of derivative liability. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as net loss excluding interest expense, depreciation of property and equipment, amortization of intangible assets, income tax (expense) benefit, share-based compensation and change in fair value of derivative liability.

The Company believes that adjusted net loss and adjusted EBITDA help identify underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain expenses that it includes in loss from operations and net loss.

The Company believes that adjusted net loss and adjusted EBITDA provide useful information about its operating results, enhance the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the management in their financial and operational decision-making.

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 adjusted net loss and adjusted EBITDA is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect the Company’s operations. Further, the non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.

The Company compensates for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company’s performance. The Company encourages you to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure are included at the end of this press release.
