  • Adjusted net income1 increased by 33.3% year over year to RMB 35.9 million in the third quarter of 2017.
  • Adjusted EBITDA2 increased by 31.0% year over year to RMB 64.8 million in the third quarter of 2017.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded to 24.9% in the third quarter of 2017 from 24.4% in the same period of the prior year.
  • Total number of learning centers reached 259 as of September 30, 2017, including 58 self-owned and 201 franchised learning centers.
  • Student enrollment at the self-owned learning centers increased by 38.5% year over year to 38,193 by September 30, 2017.
  • Student retention rate at the self-owned learning centers improved further to 70%.

“We continue to benefit from the robust growth in the junior ELT market,” stated Mr. Yiding Sun, Chief Executive Officer of RISE. “To satisfy rapidly rising consumer demand, we have further expanded our network to include 259 learning centers across 85 cities throughout China as of September 30, 2017. Due to the success of our 58 self-owned learning centers, we continue to improve our brand awareness and competitiveness in tier-one cities. At our 201 franchised learning centers, we have been improving our quality control and operational visibility by consistently deploying our COS management information system across our franchisees. Also, to further strengthen our competitive advantages in subject-based learning, we have ramped up deployment of our Can-Talk product and reached a definitive agreement to acquire The Edge Learning Centers Limited (“The Edge”) during the third quarter. In addition, in September we celebrated our 10-year anniversary, a considerable milestone that allowed us to remember our successes and contemplate our future. Going forward, we strive to maintain our growth momentum by opening more self-owned learning centers in tier-one cities, adding more franchisees in non-tier-one cities, improving the uniformity in quality of service across our entire network, and rolling out new and innovative products.”

Ms. Chelsea Wang, Chief Financial Officer of RISE, stated, “Our growth momentum is manifested in our financial results. Our total revenues increased by 28.3% year over year in the third quarter of 2017, driven both by the 38.5% year-over-year increase in our student enrollment and by our high student retention rate of 70%, which is much better than the industry average of 41%, according to Frost and Sullivan. Our adjusted EBITDA margin has expanded to 24.9% in the third quarter of 2017 from 24.4% in the same period of the prior year, mostly due to our improved economies of scale and rigorous cost control measures. More notably, our deferred revenue and customer advances grew by 33.1% from the end of 2016 through September 30, 2017. We believe our revenue growth momentum combined with our solid profitability and strong cash generation capability has all laid a solid foundation for our future development.”

THIRD QUARTER 2017 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Revenues

Total revenues for the third quarter of 2017 increased by RMB 57.3 million, or 28.3%, to RMB 260.0 million (US$ 39.1 million) from RMB 202.7 million in the same period of the prior year. This increase was primarily attributable to an increase of RMB 42.6 million in revenues from educational programs.

  • Revenues from educational programs for the third quarter of 2017 increased by 26.4% to RMB 203.6 million (US$ 30.6 million) from RMB 161.0 million in the same period of the prior year. This increase was primarily due to an increase in student enrollment at self-owned learning centers in the first nine months of 2017, and was partially offset by the impact of a two-week pause in our courses during the summer holiday as we determined to defer the delivery of the missed classes until a later date for the benefit of our students. The increase in the Company’s student enrollment was attributable to (i) higher student enrollment at existing learning centers as they matured and achieved a higher retention rate, which was partially driven by the Company’s established brand and growing offerings of reputable products; and (ii) the increase in the number of self-owned learning centers to 58 as of September 30, 2017 from 48 as of September 30, 2016.

  • Franchise revenues for the third quarter of 2017 increased by 44.9% to RMB 31.0 million (US$ 4.7 million) from RMB 21.4 million in the same period of the prior year. This increase was primarily due to an increase in the recurring franchise fees from the Company’s existing franchised learning centers, as well as an increase in the initial and renewal franchise fees in the third quarter of 2017. The number of franchised learning centers increased to 201 as of September 30, 2017 from 156 as of September 30, 2016.

  • Other revenues for the third quarter of 2017 increased by 25.3% to RMB 25.5 million (US$ 3.8 million) from RMB 20.3 million in the same period of the prior year. The increase was primarily due to an increase in revenues from the Company’s overseas study tour business.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues for the third quarter of 2017 increased by RMB 25.4 million, or 25.1%, to RMB 126.8 million (US$ 19.1 million) from RMB 101.4 million in the same period of the prior year, which was primarily due to the increase in rental costs and personnel costs. Rental costs increased as the Company expanded its operations. The increase in personnel costs was primarily attributable to an increase in teaching hours at self-owned learning centers. This increase was partially offset by a decrease in amortization expenses related to certain intangible assets acquired as part of the 2013 Bain acquisition, of which the Company recorded RMB 3.4 million (US$ 0.5 million) in the third quarter of 2017, compared to RMB 7.1 million in the third quarter of 2016.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2017 increased by RMB 31.9 million, or 31.5%, to RMB 133.2 million (US$ 20.0 million) from RMB 101.3 million in the same period of the prior year. Gross margin increased to 51.2% for the third quarter of 2017 from 50.0% in the same period of the prior year.

Operating Expenses and Income

Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2017 increased by RMB 22.4 million, or 33.3%, to RMB 89.8 million (US$ 13.5 million) from RMB 67.4 million in the same period of the prior year. As a percentage of total net revenues, total operating expenses was 34.5% in the third quarter of 2017, as compared with 33.2% in the same period of the prior year.

  • Selling and marketing expenses for the third quarter of 2017 increased to RMB 45.0 million (US$ 6.8 million) from RMB 30.4 million in the same period of the prior year. As a percentage of total net revenues, selling and marketing expenses was 17.3% in the third quarter of 2017, as compared with 15.0% in the same period of the prior year. This increase was primarily due to the increase in expenses related to branding activities for the Company in the third quarter of 2017, as well as the increase in general marketing channel expenses as the Company expanded its network of self-owned learning centers and increased student enrollment.

  • General and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2017 increased to RMB 44.8 million (US$ 6.7 million) from RMB 36.9 million in the same period of the prior year. This increase was primarily due to IPO and one-off professional expenses of RMB 9.3 million. As a percentage of total net revenues, general and administrative expenses was 17.2% in the third quarter of 2017, as compared with 18.2% in the same period of the prior year. The decrease was largely due to improvements in the Company’s operating efficiency, primarily driven by the Company’s standardization in management and operating procedures and increasing economies of scale.

Operating income for the third quarter of 2017 increased by 27.9% to RMB 43.4 million (US$ 6.5 million) from RMB 33.9 million in the same period of the prior year.

Interest Expense

Interest expense for the third quarter of 2017 was RMB 5.7 million (US$ 0.9 million), as compared with RMB 1.0 million in the same period of the prior year. The Company drew down a US$ 55 million long term loan facility from CTBC Bank Co. Ltd. on September 12, 2016, and this loan facility was further expanded to US$ 110.0 million in September 2017. The increase in interest expense is caused by a combination of longer interest period and a higher loan principal. The company plans to repay the loan by installments in the next 5 years.

Income before Income Tax Expense

Income before income tax expense for the third quarter of 2017 was RMB 43.9 million (US$ 6.6 million), as compared with RMB 38.9 million in the same period of the prior year.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense for the third quarter of 2017 was RMB 17.4 million, as compared with RMB 12.0 million in the same period of the prior year.

Net Income and Non-GAAP Measures

Net income for the third quarter of 2017 decreased by 1.3% to RMB 26.6 million (US$ 4.0 million) from RMB 26.9 million in the same period of the prior year, primarily due to the increase in interest expenses related to the Company’s loan from CTBC Bank and RMB 9.3 million of IPO and one-off professional expenses.

Adjusted net income excludes from net income IPO and one-off professional expenses. Adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2017 increased by 33.3% year over year to RMB 35.9 million (US$ 5.4 million) from RMB 26.9 million in the same period of the prior year.

EBITDA is net income or loss before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA for the third quarter of 2017 increased by 12.2% to RMB 55.5 million (US$ 8.3 million) from RMB 49.5 million in the same period of the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA excludes from EBITDA IPO and one-off professional expenses. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2017 increased by 31.0% year over year to RMB 64.8 million (US$ 9.7 million) from RMB 49.5 million in the same period of the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 24.9% for the third quarter of 2017 from 24.4% in the same period of the prior year.

Net Income per Share and Adjusted Net Income per Share

Basic and diluted net income per ordinary share attributable to RISE was RMB 0.30 (US$ 0.05) for the third quarter of 2017.

For details on the calculation of and reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measures for adjusted net income per share, see “About Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and “Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results.”

As of September 30, 2017, the Company had combined cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, and short-term investment of RMB 764.3 million (US$ 114.9 million), as compared with RMB 656.7 million as of December 31, 2016.

Deferred revenue and customer advances was RMB 800.7 million (US$ 120.3 million) at the end of the third quarter of 2017, representing an increase of 33.1% from RMB 601.3 million as of December 31, 2016, primarily due to the increase in pre-paid tuition and fees from growing student enrollment, which was partially offset by recognized revenue as courses were delivered. Deferred revenue and customer advances mainly consisted of upfront tuition fee payments from students and initial franchise fees from the Company’s franchise partners.

Total revenues for the first nine months of 2017 increased by RMB 179.4 million, or 34.6%, to RMB 697.1 million from RMB 517.7 million in the same period of the prior year. This increase was primarily attributable to an increase of RMB 146.1 million in revenues from educational programs.

Exchange Rate

This announcement contains translations of certain RMB amounts into U.S. dollars (“USD”) at specified rates solely for the convenience of the reader. Unless otherwise stated, all translations from RMB to USD were made at the rate of RMB 6.6533 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate in effect on September 30, 2017 in the H.10 statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board. The Company makes no representation that the RMB or USD amounts referred could be converted into USD or RMB, as the case may be, at any particular rate or at all. For analytical presentation, all percentages are calculated using the numbers presented in the financial statements contained in this earnings release.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement RISE’s financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company uses non-GAAP financial measures, which are adjusted from results based on U.S. GAAP. Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to U.S. GAAP financial measures are set forth in table at the end of this earnings release titled “Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results,” which provides more details on the non-GAAP financial measures.

Adjusted EBITDA and net income provides us with an understanding of the results from the primary operations of our business by excluding the effects of certain transaction related expenses that do not reflect the ordinary EBITDA and net income of our operations. We use adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income to evaluate our period-over-period operating performance because our management believes this provides a more comparable measure of our continuing business as it adjusts for transaction related expenses that are not reflective of the normal earnings of our business. These measures may be useful to an investor in evaluating the underlying operating performance of our business, and to enhance investors’ overall understanding of the historical and current financial performance of the Company’s continuing operations and prospects for the future.

Non-GAAP financial information should not be considered a substitute for or superior to U.S. GAAP results. In addition, calculations of this non-GAAP financial information may be different from calculations used by other companies, and therefore comparability may be limited.
