Fourth Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Total Revenues

Total revenues were US$48.3 million, representing an increase of 10.2% from the previous quarter. The increase in total revenues was mainly attributable to increased revenues from cloud computing and other IVAS businesses.

Revenues from cloud computing and other IVAS were US$24.6 million, representing an increase of 18.0% from the previous quarter. The increase was mainly due to increased sales of our cloud computing products and services, expanded offerings of our other IVAS services, and enhanced promotional marketing activities for our live streaming platform during this quarter.

Revenues from subscriptions were US$19.8 million, representing an increase of 2.9% from the previous quarter. The number of subscribers was 4.0 million as of December 31, 2019, up from 3.8 million as of September 30, 2019. The average revenue per subscriber for the fourth quarter was RMB35.1, same as RMB 35.1 as of September 30, 2019.

Revenues from online advertising were US$3.9 million, representing an increase of 3.9% from the previous quarter.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues was US$30.3million, representing 62.7% of our total revenues, compared with US$24.4 million or 55.8% of total revenue in the previous quarter. The increase was mainly attributable to increased capacity and sales of our cloud computing products and services.

Bandwidth costs as included in cost of revenues were US$17.8 million, representing 36.8% of our total revenues, compared with US$15.8 million or 36.1% of total revenues in the previous quarter. The increase was mainly due to an increased capacity of our cloud computing nodes.

The remaining cost of revenues mainly consisted of cost related to the sales of our cloud computing products and revenue-sharing costs for our live streaming products.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit for the fourth quarter was US$17.9 million, representing a decrease of 7.2% from the previous quarter. Gross margin was 37.1% in the fourth quarter, compared with 44.1% in the previous quarter. The decreases in gross profit and gross margin were mainly due to a write-down of our inventory for Onething Cloud hardware products of US$3.2 million based on our inventory impairment assessment.

Research and Development Expenses

Research and development expenses for the fourth quarter were US$14.3 million, representing 29.6% of our total revenues, compared with US$17.6 million or 40.1% of our total revenues in the previous quarter. The reduction was primarily due to the optimization of organizational structure, benefits and compensation. 

Sales and Marketing Expenses

Sales and marketing expenses for the fourth quarter were US$11.1 million, representing 23.1% of our total revenues, compared with US$6.2 million or 14.2% of our total revenues in the previous quarter. The increase was mainly due to more marketing and advertising expense incurred this quarter for year-end promotion activities.

General and Administrative Expenses

General and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter were US$10.2 million, representing 21.2% of our total revenues, compared with US$9.1 million or 20.8% of our total revenues in the previous quarter. The increase was primarily due to higher professional consulting and integrated audit fees incurred during the quarter as a result of our increased compliance requirements and the growth of our business.

Impairment of Assets, Net

Impairment of assets, net for the fourth quarter was a credit balance of US$0.1 million, representing net recovery amount of previously impaired assets, compared with a credit balance of US$ 0.4 million in the previous quarter.

Operating Loss

Operating loss was US$17.7 million, compared with an operating loss of US$13.2 million in the previous quarter. The increase in operating loss was primarily due to increase in sales and marketing expense.

Net Loss and Loss Per ADS

Net loss was US$18.1 million, compared with a net loss of US$24.6 million in the previous quarter. Non-GAAP net loss from continuing operations was US$17.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared with a net loss of US$23.1 million in the previous quarter. The decreased net loss and non-GAAP net loss were primarily because we recognized a net investment income of US$2.4 million in this quarter, which was related to several long-term investments. The net investment income consists of an investment income in the amount of US$7.7 million and a write-off in the amount of US$ 5.3 million. In the previous quarter, there was a one-time write-off of an investment income of US$14.3 million.

Diluted loss per ADS from continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2019 was approximately US$0.27 as compared with a loss of US$0.36 in the third quarter of 2019.

Cash Balance

As of December 31, 2019, the Company had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of US$265.3 million, compared with US$264.8 million as of September 30, 2019.

Unaudited Financial Results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019

Total Revenues

Total revenues were US$181.3 million, representing a decrease of 21.9% on a year-over-year basis. The decrease in total revenues was mainly attributable to a decrease in revenues from our cloud computing and other internet value-added services (IVAS) and online advertising services.

Revenues from cloud computing and IVAS were US$84.1 million, representing a decrease of 31.3% on a year-over-year basis. The decrease in cloud computing and IVAS revenues was mainly attributable to the decreased OneThing Cloud hardware product sales and live streaming revenues, which was partially offset by increased StellarCloud’s IaaS sales.

Revenues from subscriptions were US$81.5 million, representing a decrease of 0.4% on a year-over-year basis.

Revenues from online advertising were US$15.6 million, representing a decrease of 43.7% on a year-over-year basis. The decrease was mainly due to a decreased demand for our online advertising primarily by the mobile gaming industry during this year.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues was US$99.9 million, representing 55.1% of our total revenues in 2019, as compared with US$115.7 million and 49.8% of the total revenues in 2018.

Bandwidth costs as included in cost of revenues were US$57.1 million, representing 31.5% of our total revenues, compared with US$48.1 million or 20.7% of total revenues in the previous year. The increases were mainly due to an increased capacity of our shared cloud computing nodes.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit for the year was US$80.8 million, representing a decrease of 29.7% on the year-over-year basis. Gross margin was 44.5%, compared with 49.5% in the previous year. The decreases in gross profit and gross margin were mainly due to reduced Onething Cloud hardware product sales as well as lower online advertising revenues generated this year.

Research and Development Expenses

Research and development expenses for the year were US$68.6 million, representing 37.8% of our total revenues, compared with US$76.8 million or 33.1% of our total revenues in the previous year. The reduction was primarily due to the optimization of organizational structure, benefits and compensation.

Sales and Marketing Expenses

Sales and marketing expenses for the year were US$31.8 million, representing 17.6% of our total revenues, compared with US$35.3 million or 15.2% of our total revenues in the previous year. The decrease was primarily due to a decreased number of marketing and promotional activities during this year as a result of gradually phased-out OneThing Cloud hardware product promotion activities.

General and Administrative Expenses

General and administrative expenses for the year were US$38.9 million, representing 21.5% of our total revenues, compared with US$40.8 million or 17.6% of our total revenues in the previous year.

Impairment of Assets, Net

Impairment of assets, net for the year was a credit of US$2.1 million, representing a net recovery of previously impaired assets, compared with US$6.3 million in the previous year which represented the receivables written-off after impairment and recoverability assessment.

Operating Loss

Operating loss was US$56.4 million, compared with operating loss of US$44.3 million in the previous year. The increase was mainly due to the decrease in gross profit resulting from a decrease in revenues from cloud computing and other internet value-added services (IVAS) and online advertising services.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Xunlei's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), Xunlei uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission: (1) non-GAAP operating income/(loss), (2) non-GAAP net income/(loss) from continuing operations, (3) non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per share for common shares attributable to continuing operations, and (4) non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per ADS attributable to continuing operations. The presentation of the non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Xunlei believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information to investors regarding the Company’s operating performance by excluding share-based compensation expenses, which is not expected to result in future cash payments. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to Xunlei's historical performance and assist the Company’s financial and operational decision making. A limitation of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that these non-GAAP measures exclude share-based compensation charge that has been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in Xunlei’s results of operations. Management compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying reconciliation tables at the end of this release include details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to the non-GAAP financial measures the Company has presented.
