Mr. Leo Chen, founder and CEO of Jumei, stated, "We are pleased to report a solid recovery of our business as we record our eleventh consecutive quarter of profitability on a non-GAAP basis. While fourth quarter 2014 was a full transitional quarter during which we no longer had beauty product marketplace business, we are very encouraged by the strong first quarter 2015 outlook that we are able to share with you today. The particularly strong sequential and year-on-year net revenue guidance indicates a strong recovery driven by Jumei Global which witnessed rapid growth from late December 2014. Not only were we able to fully replace former beauty product marketplace SKUs with Jumei Global, we were also able to achieve what we believe is best-in-class quality control and customer satisfaction. Jumei passed every test with a 100% authenticity rating during multiple e-commerce product sampling tests performed by State Administration for Industry and Commerce in 2014. In a report published on March 13, 2015 by the China e-Business Research Center, a well-known independent e-commerce research firm, Jumei was among the two e-commerce companies out of 20 that achieved five star status and the highest levels of customer satisfaction in 2014. The report was based on a large sample size of approximately 100,000 customer feedback.

By offering direct purchase from brand, competitive pricing and fast delivery speed, Jumei Global is currently the largest cross border ecommerce platform in China and a crucial part of Jumei’s growth strategy in 2015. "

Unaudited Fourth Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Total net revenues were US$166.0 million, an increase of 18.5% from US$140.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily attributable to the increase in the number of active customers and the shift from beauty product marketplace sales to merchandise sales.

Gross profit was US$50.4 million, a decrease of 15.4% from US$59.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Gross profit as a percentage of net revenues decreased to 30.4% from 42.6% in the same period of 2013. Gross profit from merchandise sales as a percentage of net GMV of merchandise sales decreased to 25.3% from 31.9% in the same period of 2013, and gross profit as a percentage of net GMV decreased to 21.4% from 24.6% in the same period of 2013. The decrease was primarily due to the shift from beauty product marketplace sales to merchandise sales.

Total operating expenses were US$46.4 million, a decrease of 34.6% from US$70.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Operating expenses as a percentage of total net GMV decreased to 19.7% from 29.3% in the same period of 2013. The decrease was mainly due to a one-time share-based compensation expense of US$30.2 million incurred in the fourth quarter of 2013, but none in the fourth quarter of 2014.

  • Fulfillment expenses were US$14.8 million, a decrease of 15.9% from US$17.6 million in the same period of 2013. Fulfillment expenses as a percentage of total net GMV decreased to 6.3% from 7.3% in the same period of 2013. The decline was primarily due to a percentage decrease of fulfilled orders over total orders.
  • Marketing expenses were US$19.9 million, an increase of 20.8% from US$16.5 million in the same period of 2013. Marketing expenses as a percentage of total net GMV increased to 8.5% from 6.8% in the same period of 2013. The increase was primarily a result of the higher number of marketing campaigns and brand promotion activities that Jumei launched during the quarter, and reflects the Company’s efforts to grow its customer base and further promotion.
  • Technology and content expenses were US$7.1 million, an increase of 115.3% from US$3.3 million in the same period of 2013. Technology and content expenses as a percentage of total net GMV increased to 3.0% from 1.4% in the same period of 2013. The significant increase reflects Jumei’s continuous investments in its information technology platform and the Company’s commitment to attract top research and development talent in order to provide better technology-enabled services to both consumers and merchants.
  • General and administrative expenses were US$4.6 million, a decrease of 86.3% from US$33.5 million in the same period of 2013. General and administrative expenses as a percentage of total net GMV decreased to 1.9% from 13.8% in the same period of 2013. The significant decrease was mainly due to a decrease in related share-based compensation expenses, which declined to US$0.6 million in the fourth quarter 2014 from US$30.5 million in the same period in 2013. The fourth quarter of 2013 included a one-time share-based compensation expense of US$30.2 million.

Income from operations was US$4.0 million, a significant increase from a loss from operations of US$11.3 million in the same period of 2013.

Non-GAAP income from operations, which excludes US$1.0 million in share-based compensation expenses, was US$5.0 million, a decrease of 74.8% from US$19.8 million in the same period of 2013.

Net income attributable to Jumei’s ordinary shareholders was US$10.7 million, which compares with a net loss attributable to Jumei’s ordinary shareholders of US$15.5 million in the same period of 2013, primarily due to the one-time share-based compensation expense of US$30.2 million in 2013, and the conversion of the Company’s preferred shares into ordinary shares at the completion of our initial public offering in May 2014. Net margin attributable to Jumei’s ordinary shareholders increased to 6.4% from negative 11.0% in the same period of 2013. Net income per basic and diluted ADS attributable to Jumei’s ordinary shareholders were both US$0.07, compared with net loss per basic and diluted ADS attributable to Jumei’s ordinary shareholders of both US$0.24 for the same period of 2013.

Non-GAAP net income attributable to Jumei’s ordinary shareholders, which excludes share-based compensation expenses, was US$11.7 million, a decrease of 25.5% from US$15.7 million in the same period of 2013.

Full Year 2014 Financial Results

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with the United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), Jumei uses non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income attributable to Jumei’s ordinary shareholders, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net margin attributable to Jumei’s ordinary shareholders, and non-GAAP net income per ADS attributable to Jumei’s ordinary shareholders, by excluding share-based compensation expenses from operating profit, net income and net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders, respectively. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are important to help investors understand Jumei’s operating and financial performance, compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis and assess Jumei’s core operating results, as they exclude certain expenses that are not expected to result in cash payments. The use of the above non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations. Share-based compensation expenses have been and will continue to be incurred in the future and are not reflected in the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures, but should be considered in the overall evaluation of Jumei’s results. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing the relevant disclosure of its share-based compensation expenses in the reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which should be considered when evaluating Jumei’s performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is set forth at the end of this release.
