Net Revenues

Net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2021 were RMB1.0 billion (US$164.6 million), representing a 22.6% increase from RMB855.3 million for the same period of 2020.

Net revenues from learning services were RMB579.3 million (US$90.9 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021, representing a 20.6% increase from RMB480.2 million for the same period of 2020. The year-over-year growth from learning services was driven by the growth in paid student enrollments during the period in 2021.

Net revenues from smart devices were RMB317.7 million (US$49.9 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021, representing a 33.9% increase from RMB237.3 million for the same period of 2020, primarily driven by the substantial increase in sales volume of Youdao Dictionary Pen in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Net revenues from online marketing services were RMB151.8 million (US$23.8 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021, representing a 10.2% increase from RMB137.8 million for the same period of 2020.

Gross margin for learning services decreased to 51.4% for the fourth quarter of 2021 from 55.9% for the same period of 2020. The decrease was primarily due to the increase in employee headcount and related expenses in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Gross margin for smart devices decreased to 30.8% for the fourth quarter of 2021 from 39.5% for the same period of 2020. The decrease was due to the promotion on an earlier generation, which had lower gross margin.

Gross margin for online marketing services was 32.6% for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared with 26.9% for the same period of 2020. The increase was mainly attributable to higher sales of brand adverting services.

Sales and marketing expenses for the fourth quarter of 2021 were RMB420.4 million (US$66.0 million), representing a decrease of 17.7% from RMB511.1 million for the same period of 2020. This decrease was due to the reduction in marketing expenditures in tutoring services in the fourth quarter of 2021 due to the changing regulatory environment as previously disclosed.

Research and development expenses for the fourth quarter of 2021 were RMB170.2 million (US$26.7 million), representing an increase of 56.3% from RMB109.0 million for the same period of 2020. The increase was primarily due to higher payroll-related expenses associated with a larger number of course development and technology professionals.

General and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2021 were RMB46.1 million (US$7.2 million), representing an increase of 29.4% from RMB35.6 million for the same period of 2020. The increase was mainly attributable to an increase in employee headcount and related expenses in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Impairment of intangible assets from business combination primarily reflects the impairment of the intangible assets related to a subsidiary acquired due to adverse development of its business and change of the regulation environment.

Loss from Operations

Loss from operations for the fourth quarter of 2021 was RMB248.3 million (US$39.0 million), compared with RMB256.2 million for the same period in 2020. The margin of loss from operations was 23.7%, compared with 30.0% for the same period of last year.

Net Loss from Continuing Operations Attributable to Youdao’s Ordinary Shareholders

As of December 31, 2021, Youdao’s cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, time deposits and short-term investments totaled RMB1.6 billion (US$247.4 million), compared with RMB1.2 billion as of December 31, 2020. For the fourth quarter of 2021, net cash provided by continuing operating activities was RMB142.2 million (US$22.3 million), capital expenditures totaled RMB14.1 million (US$2.2 million), and depreciation and amortization expenses amounted to RMB11.2 million (US$1.8 million). Youdao’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on management’s ability to implement an effective business plan in future periods in light of the changing regulatory environment, generate operating cash flows and continue to be able to obtain outside sources of financing as necessary for Youdao’s future development. Since its formation, Youdao has received various financial support from the NetEase Group, among others, currently including RMB878.0 million short-term loans, US$40.0 million long-term loans with maturity dated March 31, 2024, drawn down under the US$300.0 million revolving loan facility. In support of Youdao’s future business, NetEase Group has agreed that the short-term loan will be automatically extended for a period of eleven months each time upon Youdao’s prior written request.

As of December 31, 2021, the Company’s contract liabilities, which mainly consisted of deferred revenues generated from Youdao’s learning services, were RMB1.1 billion (US$167.2 million), compared with RMB894.2 million as of December 31, 2020.

The audit of the financial statements and related notes to be included in the Company’s annual report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2021 is still in progress. In addition, because an audit of the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting in connection with section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 has not yet been completed, the Company makes no representation as to the effectiveness of those internal controls as of the end of fiscal year 2021.

Adjustments to the financial statements may be identified when the audit work is completed, which could result in differences between the Company’s audited financial statements and this preliminary unaudited financial information.

Non-GAAP Measures

Youdao considers and uses non-GAAP financial measures, such as gross billings and non-GAAP net income/(loss) from continuing operations attributable to the Company’s ordinary shareholders and non-GAAP basic and diluted income/(loss) from continuing operations 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 tutoring courses sold mainly 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 courses. Youdao defines non-GAAP net income/(loss) from continuing operations attributable to the Company’s ordinary shareholders as net income/(loss) from continuing operations attributable to the Company’s ordinary shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets from business combination, impairment of long-term investments, impairment of intangible assets from business combination, adjustment for GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items for the income/(loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests, and income tax effects of above GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items. Non-GAAP net income/(loss) from continuing operations attributable to the Company’s shareholders enables Youdao’s management to assess its operating results without considering the impact of these items, 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. 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.
