Our years' investments and technology development in the online space enables us to respond promptly to the unprecedented COVID-19 situation. Our online platform has been serving over 160,000 student enrollments as of February 2020, a massive increase from just a few thousands in late 2019. The speed and volume proves the Company's strong ability to strategically manage and operate a premium online business and demonstrates its determination to build OneSmart Online into the largest premium online education business in China. While we expect our financial performance to be temporarily impacted for a couple of quarters by the pandemic, we believe it will bounce back fairly quickly as the schools reopen and the demand for premium education services prevails. Going forward, we will benefit from OneSmart Online to penetrate the mid-high end K-12 education market in China, in both scalability and profitability, as it is helping us expand in a much larger addressable market. We see enormous growth potential ahead and will take advantage of opportunities that arise as the industry consolidates after the pandemic. "
The following are key highlights of business development during the second fiscal quarter of 2020:
OneSmart VIP Business (the leading premium K-12 1-on-1 education business in China)
- All of the offline learning centers were temporally closed since January 2020 following government's measures against COVID-19
- Successfully migrated majority of our VIP students to the online platform during the first half of February 2020. Revenues generated in the online platform during Q2 reached the level of the same period last year. The massive online classes were handled successfully while maintaining a high customer satisfaction rate of over 90% and historically low refund rate of 3% in February 2020
- Upgraded our premium products including smart assessment and academic planning, smart homework system, live broadcasting classroom, etc.
- Net revenues of International Education program (premium 1-on-1 training services for students attending international schools) grew by 71% year-over-year
OneSmart Young Children Education Business: HappyMath (the leading premium young children math education business in China) and FasTrack English (the 2nd largest premium young children English education business in East China)
- All of the offline learning centers were temporally closed since January 2020 following government's measures against COVID-19

OneSmart Online (The leading premium online education business in China)

- Continued to enhance OneSmart Online products and technologies including our latest online teaching platform Cloud Teaching System 6.0
- Successfully integrated the advanced technologies that we acquired from Yimi Online Tutoring. Yimi's technology and development on big data analytics and artificial intelligence helped create synergies with OneSmart Online to drive interactive smart learning and further improve learning experience
Key Financial Results
Mr. Greg Zuo, OneSmart's Director, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Strategic Officer added, "Despite the impact by the outbreak of COVID-19, our strong execution enabled us to retain almost the same level of revenue compared with the same period last year. In addition, we booked RMB785 million cash sales in Q2, a 20.5% increase from the same period last year, a large portion of which was generated in our online platform. We also successfully reduced our cost structure and controlled expenses during the period through series of policy on labor cost, rent and operating expenses. We temporally put center expansion and upgrades on hold and will only resume the expansion after the crisis. The streamlined cost structure will benefit us in the longer term and we expect substantial margin expansion when topline growth return to normal level.
We recognized that the pandemic impact to our business is temporary and the duration of impact may vary between core VIP business and young children education businesses. VIP business may seem a swift drop in an environment when the public schools are closed and there is massive supply of free or low priced online classes. It is therefore temporally challenging for us to deliver the distinguished value of our premium education services when the score improvement demand is not as urgent when all of the students stay at home. We believe the demand will return in a fast fashion as schools reopen and exam schedule is now fixed. In the meantime, our young children education businesses may have a slightly longer period of impact as kindergartens and some primary schools will reopen a few months after other public schools, according to government policy.
The pandemic situation accelerates Company's online expansion, a key strategy launched in FY2018. We are focused on the personalized 1-on-1 and small group online education services. Unlike online big-class format, those are the best formats to deliver high quality education services online by leveraging customized approach based on student aptitude. This is a key differentiator from online big-class format. The online education industry is massive and is rapidly growing in popularity since the COVID-19 outbreak began. The pursuit of learning effectiveness required by students and parents is driving the continuous penetration of premium personalized online education. Financially, we are committed to a healthy growth path for OneSmart Online by sticking to positive cash flow and avoiding burning cash for scale. We have tested and confirmed the attractive unit economics of OneSmart Online.
We are past the most difficult time as most of the provinces have announced back-to-school dates while our business operations are gradually getting back to normal. As of May 15, 2020, 54 of our VIP centers have reopened under government permission. We expect that number to increase over the next few months. We are confident that both of our online platform and offline operations will drive robust growth and profit going forward."
Unveiling of Strengthened Corporate Value New "OneSmart Way" to Align with Its Online Ambition
The Company has unveiled its new "OneSmart New Way" which is the framework of its corporate mission, vision and value. The new "OneSmart Way" incorporates the Company's strengthened commitment to upgrade into a prominent online education services provider. New "OneSmart Way" highlights the corporate value such as innovation, technology and customer satisfaction, to reinforce its leading position in the education sector by enhancing its premium services and executing its online strategy through OneSmart Online.
Completion of the Acquisition and Integration of Yimi's Online Technologies
The Company has successfully completed the acquisition and integration of the online teaching technologies of Yimi Education Technology Inc. Yimi is a leading Chinese premium online 1-on-1 tutoring company. In its past five years of operation, Yimi's technology has centered on big data analytics and artificial intelligence with a goal to drive interactive smart learning. Yimi also co-worked with OneSmart in 2019 to test and confirm the viability and profitability of the OMO business model. The acquisition of Yimi's technologies added a key component to OneSmart's premium online services and will help further improve the customer experience. Going forward, we will continue to focus our highly selective acquisition strategy centered on improving our core businesses.
Financial Results for the Second Fiscal Quarter Ended February 29, 2020
Net revenues were RMB885.8 million (USD126.7 million), a decrease of 6.0% from RMB942.5 million during the same period last year. The decrease was mainly attributable to the temporary shutdown of our offline learning centers for COVID-19 related government requirements, offset by the incremental volume from online platform.
Operating Costs and Expenses
Operating costs and expenses for the quarter were RMB 940.6 million (USD134.5 million), an increase of 10.4% from RMB852.3 million during the same period last year. Non-GAAP operating costs and expenses, which excludes share-based compensation expenses, were RMB903.9 million (USD129.3 million), an increase of 7.6% from RMB840.2 million during the same period last year.
- Cost of revenues increased by 11.2% year-over-year to RMB529.4 million (USD75.7 million). We increased teacher compensation to attract higher quality teachers to support the development of OneSmart Online, added rental costs to comply with regulatory requirements;
- Selling and marketing expenses increased by 2.8% year-over-year to RMB196.7 million (USD28.1 million). Non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses, which excludes share-based compensation expenses, were RMB196.6 million (USD28.1 million), an increase of 2.7% from RMB191.4 million during the same period last year. The increase was a mixed result of increased spending in online channels and decreased expense ratio driven by disciplined marketing expense control during COVID-19 period and more effective sales and marketing activities to support the growth of OneSmart Online;
- General and administrative expenses increased by 16.0% year-over-year to RMB214.5 million (USD30.7 million). Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, which excludes share-based compensation, were RMB177.9 million (USD25.4 million), an increase of 2.9% from RMB172.8 million during the same period last year. The increase was primarily due to increased R&D expenses for OneSmart Online mixed with our expense control policy to keep a healthy financial condition during COVD-19.
Total share-based compensation expenses, which were allocated to related operating expenses, were RMB36.7 million (USD5.3 million) in the second fiscal quarter of 2020, compared with RMB12.1 million in the same period of the prior fiscal year.
Operating Income/Loss and Operating Margin
Operating loss for the quarter was RMB54.8 million (USD7.8 million), compared with operating income of RMB90.2 million in the same period of the prior fiscal year. Non-GAAP operating loss, which excludes shared-based compensation, was RMB18.1 million (USD2.6 million), compared with Non-GAAP operating income of RMB102.4 million during the same period of the prior fiscal year.
Operating margin for the quarter was -6.2%, compared with 9.6% in the same period of the prior fiscal year. Non-GAAP operating margin was -2.0%, compared with 10.9% during the same period last year. The decrease of margin was mainly due to one-off revenue drop due to the impact of COVID-19, coupled with cost increase on teacher and rent and increased R&D expenses to support the online development. We expect margin will return to normal level post the crisis and start to expand in FY21.
Other income was RMB48.9 million (USD7.0 million), which mainly consists government subsidies and gains from investment revaluation, compared with RMB2.2 million during the same period last year.
Income tax benefit was RMB21.2 million (USD3.0 million), compared with income tax expense of RMB27.8 million during the same period last year.
Net Income/Loss Attributable to OneSmart
Net loss attributable to OneSmart was RMB16.4 million (USD2.3 million), compared with net income of RMB64.9 million during the same period last year. Non-GAAP net income attributable to OneSmart was RMB20.3 million (USD2.9 million), compared with net income of RMB77.1 million during the same period last year. The change was mainly due to the rise of teacher compensation, rent, R&D expenses, and interest expenses.
Capital expenditures for the second fiscal quarter of 2020 were RMB67.9 million (USD9.7 million), a decrease of RMB23.0 million from RMB90.9 million in the second fiscal quarter of 2019. The decrease was mainly because we prudently managed our cash flow and temporarily suspended leasehold improvements due to COVID-19.
As of February 29, 2020, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of RMB1,107.2 million (USD158.4 million) and short-term investments of RMB384.4 million (USD55.0 million).
OneSmart's prepayments from customers balance, which represents cash collected from enrolled students for courses and recognized proportionately as the training sessions are delivered, was RMB2,385.6 million (USD341.3 million) at the end of the second fiscal quarter of 2020, an increase of 21.1% from RMB1,969.5 million at the end of the second fiscal quarter of 2019.

Based on the latest information, we expect to generate net revenues of RMB3,200.0 to RMB3,600.0 million (USD457.8 to USD515.0 million) for the full Fiscal Year 2020. However, this outlook represents OneSmart's current view, which is subject to change because the COVID-19 impact is still ongoing and the reopen schedule of majorities of our learnings centers is not yet fixed, and the degree of full year contribution by our rapidly growing online products requires more data to assess.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In evaluating its business, OneSmart considers and uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC as supplemental metrics to review and assess its operating performance: non-GAAP operating costs and expenses, non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income attributable to OneSmart. To present each of these non-GAAP measures, the Company excludes share-based compensation expenses. 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 GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this release.
OneSmart believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding share-based compensation expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. OneSmart believes that both management and investors benefit from these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing its performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to OneSmart's historical performance and liquidity. OneSmart computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter and from period to period. OneSmart believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision making. A limitation of using non-GAAP measures is that these non-GAAP measures exclude share-based compensation charges that have been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in the Company's business. Management compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying tables have more details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.
