Third Quarter 2020 Operational Highlights

  • Number of monthly active unique mobile devices increased to 1.39 billion in September 2020 from 1.34 billion in September 2019.
  • Number of paying customers increased to 2,405 in the third quarter of 2020 from 2,312 in the third quarter of 2019.

Mr. Weidong Luo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Aurora Mobile, commented, “From this quarter forward, we will focus on discussing the performance of the company on “SAAS Businesses” (which include only both the Developer Services and Vertical Applications) basis where we exclude the revenues of Targeted Marketing. We believe this discussion is more relevant and helpful for investors to understand how the underlying SAAS Businesses are performing and driving our future. Beginning with the quarter ending March 31, 2021, we will only have these SAAS Businesses remaining.”

“On SAAS Businesses basis, total revenue (which includes both the Developer Services and Vertical Applications) grew 18% year-over-year to RMB65.6 million mainly due to the very strong 99% growth in Developer Services, partially offset by the year-over-year decline in vertical applications, which have been impacted by COVID-19. It is worth noting that customer demand for Vertical Applications has gradually recovered since the second quarter of this year, and revenues from Vertical Applications have seen sequential growth for two consecutive quarters. On SAAS Businesses basis, gross profit has also shown solid growth of 16% year-over-year to RMB49.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, due to the strong performance of Developer Services. Also on SAAS Businesses basis, gross margin for this quarter was 75%; stable year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter.”

“In the third quarter of 2020, we continued to wind down our Targeted Marketing business according to plan. It contributed only 40% of revenue, down from 49% and 73% of revenue in the second quarter of 2020 and the same quarter last year respectively. In terms of total gross profit, its contribution was a mere 4% this quarter, down from 5% and 26% in the second quarter of 2020 and the same quarter last year respectively.”

“In benefiting from the continued strong growth in the high margin SAAS Businesses, and transitioning away from the low margin Targeted Marketing business, on a GAAP basis (which includes Targeted Marketing revenue), our overall Group gross margin was 47% in the third quarter, our highest gross margin ever throughout our operating history, as compared with 28% in the same period of last year and 41% in the prior quarter. We are very pleased with this growing trend in high gross margins over time as we continue shifting our focus to the SAAS Businesses. Following the exit of Targeted Marketing business by the fourth quarter of this year, our business will be 100% contributed by SAAS Businesses beginning 2021. The overall gross margin of the Group is expected to be above 70% by then.”

“In the third quarter, we continued to extensively explore various industry verticals, focusing on helping mobile APP developers with operations, growth and monetization by leveraging our professional, efficient, secure and stable services and great operational analysis capabilities. During the quarter, we launched a one-stop operational platform for APP developers, helping them to improve user engagement, retention, and conversion, as well as achieve greater efficiency, leverage on intelligent user acquisition tools to further refine their operations.”

“Recently, we also signed strategic cooperation agreements with leading platforms across multiple industry verticals such as finance, insurance, weather, internet tools, gaming, fresh food e-commerce, and online education to drive user growth and traffic, and improve user experience. For example, we have already signed agreements with Ping An Bank, Data Center of China Life, Moji Weather, WiFi Masterkey, Lilith Games, Missfresh, and 17zuoye, and other well-known companies.”

Mr. Fei Chen, President of Aurora Mobile, added, “In building on the great momentum from the first and second quarters of this year, our Developer Services were once again the star performer during the quarter. Developer Services generated RMB43.7 million in revenue. This revenue, which includes both the Subscriptions and Value-Added-Services, resulted in an impressive 99% revenue growth year-over-year on the back of a continued increase in the number of paying customers in the Subscription business and strong adoption of our Value-Added-Services. Equally strong was the RMB32.6 million gross profit contribution from Developer Services, which grew by 95% year-over-year.”

“Value-added-Services, which include revenues from JG Alliance services and Advertisement SaaS, had another strong quarterly performance with RMB13.5 million in revenue for the quarter compared to NIL same quarter a year ago. As the app market becomes incrementally competitive and user growth becomes stagnant and costly, there’s urgent need for APP developers to find additional sources to monetize existing user bases. While our Developer Service Subscription business satisfies APP developer’s operational needs, our JG Alliance services help APP developers with their user traffic monetization needs. Recently a number of hero APPs, each with over 10 million DAUs in China, have joined our JG Alliance traffic network. The total number of DAUs within our network exceeded 100 million in the third quarter, reaching a major milestone since we launched the service less than a year ago. Endorsement by these hero apps has proved the great value and market acceptance of our JG Alliance products that help mobile APPs to further monetize their APP traffic.”

“On the demand side, mini program developers have become the largest traffic consumer of JG Alliance. With the increasingly expansion of the mini program ecosystem, mini program developers are no longer satisfied with limited traffic supply such as those within WeChat, and they urgently need additional external traffic to meet their huge user acquisition needs. Our JG Alliance’s massive traffic resource and innovative advertising formats can effectively meet their user acquisition needs. Therefore, whether it is from the supply side or the demand side, JG Alliance gives us full confidence that this business will become a growth engine to drive our overall growth in the foreseeable future.”

“The combined revenues from Vertical Applications, which include market intelligence, financial risk management and location-based intelligence, increased by 6% from RMB20.7 million sequentially to RMB21.9 million, as business continued to recover for customers who had been previously impacted by COVID-19. In particular, our location-based intelligence business has seen solid growth of 29% quarter-over-quarter driven by a 60% improvement in ARPU.”

Mr. Shan-Nen Bong, Chief Financial Officer of Aurora Mobile, added, “We are very pleased that the increased contribution percentage-wise, year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter by Developer Services and Vertical Applications, has pushed our gross margin for the quarter to an all-time high. This historic high gross margin of 47% in Q3 2020 is the result of our commitment and success in investing, growing and executing well on both the Developer Services and Vertical Applications businesses.”

“These solid operating and financial results are also reflected in our balance sheet. With our stringent credit policy and collection effort, accounts receivable turnover days have decreased significantly from 84 days in Q3 2019 to 45 days in Q3 2020. The deferred revenue balance, which represents cash collected in advance from customers, has increased by 29% year-over-year to RMB110 million as of September 30, 2020. Our operating cash flow has now been positive for two consecutive quarters, with cash inflows this quarter of more than RMB30 million. In addition, our cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investment balance was at a healthy level of RMB437 million as of September 30, 2020. Thus, we believe we are in a very solid financial position to further invest in and expand our high-margin SAAS Businesses (include Developer Services and Vertical Applications) going forward.”

Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results (for the Group as a whole)

Revenues were RMB108.6 million (US$16.0 million), a decrease of 46% from RMB202.0 million in the same quarter of last year, mainly due to the decrease in revenues from Targeted Marketing which decreased 71% year-over-year as we continued to wind down the Targeted Marketing business. This was partially offset by revenue growth from Developer Services which increased by 99% year-over-year.

Cost of revenues was RMB57.5 million (US$8.5 million), a decrease of 60% from RMB145.1 million in the third quarter of 2019. The decrease was mainly due to a RMB87.0 million decrease in media costs which is in line with reduced revenues from Targeted Marketing business and a RMB0.6 million decrease in personnel cost.

Gross profit was RMB51.1 million (US$7.5 million), a decrease of 10% from RMB56.9 million in the third quarter of 2019, primarily due to the decrease in gross profit from Targeted Marketing business as the Company strategically shifts its focus to Developer Services and Vertical Applications.

Gross margin was at 47%, a historic record high, compared to 28% in the third quarter of 2019, mainly due to our revenue mix shift from low margin Targeted Marketing business to high margin SAAS businesses which includes Developer Services and Vertical Applications.

Total operating expenses were RMB97.7 million (US$14.4 million), a decrease of 12% from RMB111.5 million in the same quarter of last year.

  • Research and development expenses were RMB45.6 million (US$6.7 million), an increase of 5% from RMB43.3 million in the same quarter of last year, mainly due to a RMB2.8 million increase in technical service fees.
  • Sales and marketing expenses were RMB28.0 million (US$4.1 million), a decrease of 8% from RMB30.5 million in the same quarter of last year, mainly due to a RMB1.4 million decrease in marketing expenses and a RMB1.3 million decrease in personnel costs.
  • General and administrative expenses were RMB24.1 million (US$3.5 million), a decrease of 36% from RMB37.7 million in the same quarter of last year, mainly due to a RMB12.9 million decrease in bad debt allowance and a RMB2.0 million decrease in personnel costs.

Loss from operations was RMB46.6 million (US$6.9 million), compared with RMB54.6 million in the same quarter of last year.

Net Loss was RMB43.7 million (US$6.4 million), compared with RMB31.7 million in the same quarter of last year.

Adjusted net loss (non-GAAP) was RMB36.9 million (US$5.4 million), compared with RMB37.6 million adjusted net loss in the same period of last year.

Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) was negative RMB22.0 million (US$3.2 million), compared with negative RMB26.0 million for the same period of last year.

The cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investment increased from RMB431.6 million as of December 31, 2019 to RMB436.6 million (US$64.3 million) as of September 30, 2020.

Business Outlook

Beginning from this quarter, we will start providing the quarterly SAAS Businesses revenue guidance. For the fourth quarter of 2020, the Company expects the SAAS Businesses revenue to be between RMB74 million and RMB78 million, representing quarter-over-quarter growth of approximately 13% to 19%. The above outlook is based on the current market conditions and reflects the Company’s current and preliminary estimates of market and operating conditions and customer demand, which are all subject to change.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses three non-GAAP measures, adjusted net loss, adjusted EBITDA and SAAS Businesses revenue, 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 fair value loss/(gain) of long-term investment. 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 fair value loss/(gain) of long-term investment. The Company defines SAAS Businesses revenue as the total Group revenue excluding Targeted Marketing revenue.

The Company believes that adjusted net loss and adjusted EBITDA help identify underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be impacted 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, adjusted EBITDA and SAAS Businesses revenue 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.
