GMV from general merchandise and others increased to 48% of total GMV in the first quarter of 2016 from 47% in the first quarter of 2015.

For the first quarter of 2016, JD.com reported net revenues of RMB54.0 billion (US$8.4 billion), representing a 47% increase from the same period in 2015. The increases in GMV and net revenues were primarily due to the growth in active customer accounts and the number of fulfilled orders in the first quarter of 2016. Net revenues from online direct sales increased by 45%, while net revenues from services and others increased by 91% in the first quarter of 2016, as compared to the first quarter of 2015, primarily due to the increased revenues from the Company’s rapidly expanding online marketplace, advertising services and third-party logistics services.

Cost of Revenues. Cost of revenues increased by 44% to RMB46.2 billion (US$7.2 billion) in the first quarter of 2016 from RMB32.2 billion in the first quarter of 2015. This increase was primarily due to the growth of the Company’s online direct sales business, the increased traffic acquisition costs directly related to the online marketing services provided to merchants and suppliers as well as interest expenses related to JD Finance.

Fulfillment Expenses. Fulfillment expenses, which primarily include procurement, warehousing, delivery and customer service expenses, increased by 68% to RMB4.5 billion (US$0.7 billion) in the first quarter of 2016 from RMB2.7 billion in the first quarter of 2015. This increase was primarily due to the increase in the number of fulfillment employees associated with the expansion of the Company’s fulfillment network into lower-tier cities and rural areas, as well as the growth in consumable product offerings with lower average order size.

Marketing Expenses. Marketing expenses increased by 48% to RMB2.1 billion (US$0.3 billion) in the first quarter of 2016 from RMB1.4 billion in the first quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP marketing expenses4 increased by 61% to RMB1.8 billion (US$0.3 billion) in the first quarter of 2016 from RMB1.1 billion in the first quarter of 2015. This increase was primarily due to the increased brand advertising activities and new business promotions in the first quarter of 2016.

Technology and Content Expenses. Technology and content expenses increased by 58% to RMB1.1 billion (US$0.2 billion) in the first quarter of 2016 from RMB0.7 billion in the first quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP technology and content expenses4 increased by 52% to RMB1.0 billion (US$0.2 billion) in the first quarter of 2016 from RMB0.7 billion in the first quarter of 2015. This increase was primarily due to an increase in the number of R&D staff and other spending in mobile, big data and new businesses.

General and Administrative Expenses. General and administrative expenses increased by 85% to RMB890.0 million (US$138.0 million) in the first quarter of 2016 from RMB479.9 million in the first quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses4 increased by 64% to RMB579.7 million (US$89.9 million) in the first quarter of 2016 from RMB353.5 million in the first quarter of 2015. This increase was primarily due to the increase in spending in various new business initiatives.

Loss from operations and Non-GAAP Loss from operations. Loss from operations for the first quarter of 2016 was RMB864.9 million (US$134.1 million), compared to RMB822.6 million for the same period last year. Non-GAAP loss from operations for the first quarter of 2016 was RMB295.7 million (US$45.9 million), compared to RMB318.0 million in the first quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP operating margin of JD Mall for the first quarter of 2016 was 0.5%, compared to negative 0.1% for the first quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP loss from operations of New Businesses, including JD Finance, O2O, technology initiatives and overseas business for the first quarter of 2016 was RMB0.6 billion. Non-GAAP EBITDA margin5 for the first quarter of 2016 was 0.4%, compared to negative 0.2% for the first quarter of 2015.

Share of results of equity investees. Share of results of equity investees for the first quarter of 2016 was RMB164.0 million loss (US$25.4 million), compared to nil for the same period last year. This increase was primarily due to losses picked up from the Company’s equity method investments in Bitauto and Tuniu.

Net Loss Attributable to Ordinary Shareholders and Non-GAAP Net Loss Attributable to Ordinary Shareholders. Net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders for the first quarter of 2016 was RMB909.8 million (US$141.1 million), compared to RMB710.2 million for the same period last year. Non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders6 for the first quarter of 2016 was RMB205.4 million (US$31.9 million) as compared to RMB205.6 million in the first quarter of 2015.

Non-GAAP Measures

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses non-GAAP measures, such as non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income/(loss), non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders, non-GAAP net margin, free cash flow, non-GAAP EBITDA, non-GAAP EBITDA margin, non-GAAP net income/(loss) per weighted average shares and non-GAAP net income/(loss) per ADS, as supplemental measures to review and assess 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 accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). The Company defines non-GAAP operating expenses as operating expenses excluding share-based compensation and amortization of intangible assets resulting from assets and business acquisitions. The Company defines non-GAAP operating income/(loss) as operating income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets resulting from assets and business acquisitions and recognition of deferred revenue resulting from the business cooperation arrangements with the equity investees. The Company defines non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders as net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders excluding share-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets resulting from assets and business acquisitions, recognition of deferred revenue resulting from the business cooperation arrangements with the equity investees, reconciling items on the share of equity method investments, net income attributable to mezzanine classified non-controlling interest shareholders, impairment of goodwill, intangible assets and investments. The Company defines free cash flow as operating cash flow adding back the impact from internet financing activities and less capital expenditures, which include purchase of property, equipment and software, cash paid for construction in progress, purchase of office building, intangible assets and land use rights. The Company defines non-GAAP EBITDA as income/(loss) from operations excluding share-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, recognition of deferred revenue resulting from the business cooperation arrangements with the equity investees, interest expense related to JD Finance and impairment of goodwill and intangible assets.

The Company presents these non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by management to evaluate operating performance and formulate business plans. Non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income/(loss) and non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders enable management to assess operating results without considering the impact of share-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets resulting from assets and business acquisitions, recognition of deferred revenue resulting from the business cooperation arrangements with the equity investees, reconciling items on earning from equity method investments, net income attributable to mezzanine classified non-controlling interest shareholders, impairment of goodwill, intangible assets and investments. Free cash flow enables management to assess liquidity and cash flow while taking into account the impact from internet financing activities and the demands that the expansion of fulfillment infrastructure and technology platform has placed on financial resources. Non-GAAP EBITDA enables management to assess operating results without considering the impact of share-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, recognition of deferred revenue resulting from the business cooperation arrangements with the equity investees, interest expense related to JD Finance and impairment of goodwill and intangible assets. The Company also believes that the use of the non-GAAP measure facilitates investors' assessment of operating performance.

These 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 non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income/(loss) and non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders is that it does not reflect all items of income and expense that affect the Company’s operations. Share-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets resulting from assets and business acquisitions, recognition of deferred revenue resulting from the business cooperation arrangements with the equity investees, reconciling items on earning from equity method investments, net income attributable to mezzanine classified non-controlling interest shareholders, impairment of goodwill, intangible assets and investments have been and may continue to be incurred in the Company’s business and are not reflected in the presentation of non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders. One of the key limitations of free cash flow is that it does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. One of the key limitations of using non-GAAP EBITDA is that it does not reflect all items of income and expense that affect operations. Share-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, recognition of deferred revenue resulting from the business cooperation arrangements with the equity investees, interest expense related to JD Finance and impairment of goodwill and intangible assets have been and may continue to be incurred in the Company’s business and are not reflected in the presentation of non-GAAP EBITDA. Further, these non-GAAP 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 performance. The Company encourages you to review the Company’s financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Annual active customer accounts(6) (in millions) 97.8 169.1

(3) Selected operating data for all presented periods excludes the impact of Paipai.com.

(4) GMV is defined as the total value of all orders for products and services placed in the Company’s online direct sales business and on the Company’s online marketplaces, regardless of whether the goods are sold or delivered or whether the goods are returned. GMV includes the value from orders placed on the Company’s website and mobile applications as well as orders placed on third-party mobile applications that are fulfilled by the Company or third-party merchants who are enabled by the Company’s marketplaces. The Company’s calculation of GMV includes shipping charges paid by buyers to sellers and excludes any transactions in the Company’s B2C business with order value exceeding RMB2,000 that are not ultimately sold or delivered. If the Company’s calculation of GMV includes total value of all orders for products and services placed in the Company’s online direct sales business and on the Company’s online marketplaces, regardless of whether the goods are sold or delivered or whether the goods are returned and shipping charges paid by buyers to sellers, and excludes products or services with list prices above RMB100,000 as well as transactions conducted by buyers who make purchases exceeding RMB1,000,000 in the aggregate in a single day (similar to the practice of the Company’s major industry peer), the Company’s GMV for the first quarter of 2016 would have been RMB178.6 billion.

(5) Orders fulfilled are defined as the total number of orders delivered, including the orders for products and services sold in the Company’s online direct sales business and on the Company’s online marketplaces, net of orders returned.

(6) Annual active customer accounts are customer accounts that made at least one purchase during the twelve months ended on the respective dates, whether through online direct sales or online marketplaces.
