SINGAPORE, Aug. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — JOYY Inc. (NASDAQ: YY) (“JOYY” or the “Company”, formerly known as YY Inc.), a global video-based social media company, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter 2021.

Second quarter 2021 Financial Highlights1

  • Net revenues increased by 39.7% to US$661.7 million from US$473.5 million in the corresponding period of 2020.
  • Net loss from continuing operations attributable to controlling interest of JOYY2 was US$109.3 million, compared to US$28.5 million in the corresponding period of 2020.
  • Non-GAAP net loss from continuing operations attributable to controlling interest and common shareholders of JOYY3 decreased by 99.1% to US$0.5 million from US$50.5 million in the corresponding period of 2020, primarily as a result of BIGO turning a profit in this quarter.

Second Quarter 2021 Operational Highlights

  • Global average mobile MAUs4 decreased by 26.0% to 307.5 million from 415.8 million in the corresponding period of 2020, primarily due to the impact of the Indian government’s measures to block Chinese-owned apps in its local market, which included Bigo Live, Likee and Hago, partially offset by an increase in MAUs outside India.
  • Average mobile MAUs of Likee decreased by 38.6% to 92.3 million from 150.3 million in the corresponding period of 2020, primarily due to the impact of the Indian government’s measures to block Chinese-owned apps in its local market, and reduced spending on user acquisition via advertisement.
  • Average mobile MAUs of Bigo Live increased by 0.3% to 29.5 million from 29.4 million in the corresponding period of 2020, primarily due to the increase in MAUs outside India, partially offset by the negative impact of the Indian government’s measures to block Chinese apps in its local market.
  • Average mobile MAUs of Hago decreased by 62.9% to 11.8 million from 31.7 million in the corresponding period of 2020, primarily due to the impact of the Indian government’s measures to block Chinese-owned apps in its local market, and reduced spending on user acquisition via advertisement.
  • Total number of paying users of BIGO (including Bigo Live, Likee and imo)5 increased by 12.0% to 1.58 million from 1.41 million in the corresponding period of 2020.
  • Average revenue per paying user of BIGO (including Bigo Live, Likee and imo)6 increased by 23.9% to US$316.0 from US$255.1 in the corresponding period of 2020.

Mr. David Xueling Li, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of JOYY, commented, “Despite the negative impact from local holidays in certain regions, we maintained the growth trajectory of our global business, and managed to achieve significant progress in further enriching our localized content offering in the second quarter. With the enhancement in our product monetization, improvement in our operating leverage, and execution of a more prudent marketing strategy, we almost reached breakeven on a non-GAAP basis at the group level for the first time after we deconsolidated YY Live.

Despite the recent volatility in the macro environment and the increasing uncertainty due to COVID-19, we remain committed to our long-term vision and corporate mission. We will continue to deploy our resources to areas that can sharpen our competitive edge, including further optimization of our localized content and social ecosystems as well as enhancement of our research and development capabilities, so that we can create greater value for our shareholders.” Mr. David Xueling Li concluded.

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

NET REVENUES
Net revenues increased by 39.7% to US$661.7 million in the second quarter of 2021 from US$473.5 million in the corresponding period of 2020, primarily driven by the growth of live streaming revenues from BIGO.

Live streaming revenues increased by 39.7% to US$629.6 million in the second quarter of 2021 from US$450.7 million in the corresponding period of 2020, primarily attributable to BIGO’s continued paying users growth and enhanced monetization capabilities.

Other revenues increased by 40.3% to US$32.1 million in the second quarter of 2021 from US$22.9 million in the corresponding period of 2020.

COST OF REVENUES AND GROSS PROFIT
Cost of revenues increased by 32.2% to US$458.3 million in the second quarter of 2021 from US$346.7 million in the corresponding period of 2020. Revenue-sharing fees and content costs increased to US$289.1 million in the second quarter of 2021 from US$198.2 million in the corresponding period of 2020 as a result of the increase in live streaming revenues of the Company. Bandwidth costs decreased to US$27.5 million in the second quarter of 2021 from US$32.7 million in the corresponding period of 2020, primarily due to the Company’s improved efficiency in bandwidth usage and the termination of bandwidth usage for users in India after its measures to block certain Chinese mobile apps in late June 2020, partially offset by the continued user base expansion outside India.

Gross profit increased by 60.4% to US$203.4 million in the second quarter of 2021 from US$126.9 million in the corresponding period of 2020. Gross margin improved to 30.7% in the second quarter of 2021 from 26.8% in the corresponding period of 2020.

OPERATING LOSS
Operating expenses were US$314.0 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to US$247.6 million in the corresponding period of 2020. Among the operating expenses, general and administrative expenses increased to US$101.1 million for the second quarter of 2021 from US$51.5 million in the corresponding period of 2020, primarily due to the impairment loss arising mainly from an investment made in the prior years whose financial and operating performance deteriorated significantly in the second quarter of 2021 as a result of fierce market competition, which was partially offset by the reversal of share-based compensation expenses.

Operating loss was US$101.1 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to US$119.9 million in the corresponding period of 2020. Operating loss margin was 15.3% in the second quarter of 2021, compared to 25.3% in the corresponding period of 2020, primarily as a result of BIGO turning a profit in this quarter.

Non-GAAP operating loss7 decreased by 80.3% to US$13.0 million in the second quarter of 2021 from US$65.7 million in the corresponding period of 2020. Non-GAAP operating loss margin8 was 2.0% in the second quarter of 2021, compared to 13.9% in the corresponding period of 2020.

NET LOSS
Net loss from continuing operations attributable to controlling interest of JOYY was US$109.3 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to US$28.5 million in the corresponding period of 2020. Net loss margin was 16.5% in the second quarter of 2021, compared to 6.0% in the corresponding period of 2020.

Non-GAAP net loss from continuing operations attributable to controlling interest and common shareholders of JOYY was US$0.5 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to US$50.5 million in the corresponding period of 2020. Non-GAAP net loss margin9 was 0.1% in the second quarter of 2021, compared to 10.7% in the corresponding period of 2020.

NET LOSS PER ADS
Diluted net loss from continuing operations per ADS10 was US$1.43 in the second quarter of 2021, compared to US$0.39 in the corresponding period of 2020.

Non-GAAP diluted net loss from continuing operations per ADS11 was US$0.01 in the second quarter of 2021, compared to US$0.63 in the corresponding period of 2020.

BALANCE SHEET AND CASH
As of June 30, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and cash equivalents, short-term deposits, restricted short-term deposits and short-term investments of US$4,917.4 million.

SHARES OUTSTANDING
As of June 30, 2021, the Company had a total of 1,568.1 million common shares, or the equivalent of 78.4 million ADSs, outstanding.

Business Outlook
For the third quarter of 2021, the Company expects net revenues to be between US$608 million and US$635 million, representing a year-over-year growth of 13.7% to 18.7%. This guidance excludes the revenue contribution from Huya and YY Live in the same period of last year. This forecast considers the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and reflects the Company’s current and preliminary views on the market and operational conditions, which are subject to changes, particularly as to the potential impact of the COVID-19 on the global economy and users’ paying capabilities.

Quarterly Dividend
On August 11, 2020, the Company’s board of directors approved a quarterly dividend policy for the next three years commencing in the third quarter of 2020. Aggregating such quarterly cash dividend under another adopted quarterly dividend policy with the quarterly cash dividend announced on November 16, 2020, the board of directors has accordingly declared a dividend of US$0.51 per ADS, or US$0.0255 per common share, for the second quarter of 2021, which is expected to be paid on September 29, 2021 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on September 10, 2021. The ex-dividend date will be September 9, 2021. Under the policy, the board of directors of the Company reserves the discretion relating to the determination to make dividend distributions and the amount of such distributions in any particular quarter, depending on the Company’s operations and earnings, cash flow, financial condition and other relevant factors.

Recent Developments

Share Repurchase Program
In May 2020, the Company announced that its board of directors has authorized to extend its existing share repurchase program, as previously approved by the board of directors in August 2019, for another 12-month period upon its original expiry date under which the Company may repurchase up to US$300 million of its shares between August 2019 and August 2021. As of June 30, 2021, the Company had repurchased approximately US$296.8 million of its shares.

Further information regarding these and other risks is included in JOYY’s filings with the SEC. All information provided in this press release and in the attachments is as of the date of this press release, and JOYY does not undertake any obligation to update any forward- looking statement, except as required under applicable law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The unaudited condensed consolidated financial information is prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). JOYY uses non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating (loss) margin, non-GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to controlling interest of JOYY, non-GAAP net (loss) margin attributable to controlling interest of JOYY, non-GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders of JOYY, and basic and diluted non-GAAP net income (loss) per ADS, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP operating income (loss) is operating income (loss) excluding share-based compensation expenses, impairment of goodwill and investments, amortization of intangible assets from business acquisitions, and gain on disposal of subsidiaries and business. Non-GAAP operating (loss) margin is non-GAAP operating income as a percentage of net revenues. Non-GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations is net income (loss) from continuing operations excluding share-based compensation expenses, impairment of goodwill and investments, amortization of intangible assets from business acquisitions, gain on disposal of subsidiaries and business, (loss) gain on disposal and deemed disposal of investments, gain (loss) on fair value change of investments, reconciling items on the share of equity method investments, fair value change on derivatives, interest expenses related to the convertible bonds’ amortization to face value, and income tax effects of above non-GAAP reconciling items. Non-GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to controlling interest of JOYY is net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to controlling interest of JOYY excluding share-based compensation expenses, impairment of goodwill and investments, amortization of intangible assets from business acquisitions, (loss) gain on disposal and deemed disposal of subsidiaries and business, gain on disposal of investments, gain (loss) on fair value change of investments, reconciling items on the share of equity method investments, fair value change on derivatives, interest expenses related to the convertible bonds’ amortization to face value, income tax effects of above non-GAAP reconciling items and adjustments for non-GAAP reconciling items for the net (loss) income from continuing operations attributable to non-controlling interest shareholders. Non-GAAP net (loss) margin is non-GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to controlling interest of JOYY as a percentage of net revenues. Non-GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders of JOYY is net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders of JOYY excluding share-based compensation expenses, impairment of goodwill and investments, amortization of intangible assets from business acquisitions, (loss) gain on disposal and deemed disposal of subsidiaries and business, gain on disposal of investments, gain (loss) on fair value change of investments, reconciling items on the share of equity method investments, fair value change on derivatives, interest expenses related to the convertible bonds’ amortization to face value, accretion, cumulative dividend and deemed dividend to subsidiaries’ preferred shareholders and income tax effects of above non-GAAP reconciling items and adjustments for non-GAAP reconciling items for the net (loss) income from continuing operations attributable to non-controlling interest shareholders. After the non-GAAP reconciliation, non-GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to controlling interests of JOYY is equal to the non-GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders of JOYY. Basic and diluted non-GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations per ADS is non-GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders of JOYY divided by weighted average number of ADS used in the calculation of basic and diluted net income per ADS. The Company believes that separate analysis and exclusion of the non-cash impact of above reconciling items adds clarity to the constituent parts of its performance. The Company reviews these non-GAAP financial measures together with GAAP financial measures to obtain a better understanding of its operating performance. It uses the non-GAAP financial measure for planning, forecasting and measuring results against the forecast. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measure is useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance without the non-cash effect of (i) share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets from business acquisitions, fair value change on derivatives, interest expenses related to the convertible bonds’ amortization to face value, which have been and will continue to be significant recurring expenses in its business, (ii) impairment of goodwill and investments, gain on disposal of subsidiaries and business, (loss) gain on disposal and deemed disposal of investments, gain (loss) on fair value change of investments, reconciling items on the share of equity method investments, and accretion, cumulative dividend and deemed dividend to subsidiaries’ preferred shareholders, which may not be recurring in its business, and (iii) income tax expenses and non-GAAP adjustments for net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to non-controlling interest shareholders, which are affected by above non-GAAP reconciling items. However, the use of non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not include all items that impact the Company’s net income (loss) for the period. In addition, because non-GAAP financial measures are not measured in the same manner by all companies, they may not be comparable to other similar titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider non-GAAP financial measure in isolation from or as an alternative to the financial measure prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

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 U.S. GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned “JOYY Inc. Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” near the end of this release.

1 Starting from the second quarter of 2020, the Company deconsolidated HUYA Inc. (NYSE: HUYA) (“Huya”) and Huya’s historical financial results were reflected in the Company’s consolidated financial statements as discontinued operations accordingly. The financial information and non-GAAP financial information of the Company disclosed in this press release is presented on a continuing operations basis, unless otherwise specifically stated. After the deconsolidation of Huya, the Company accounted for its investment in Huya as an equity method investment and applied the equity method of accounting one quarter in arrears. Share of income or loss from the investment in Huya was included in net income or loss from continuing operations.

On November 16, 2020, the Company entered into definitive agreements with Baidu, Inc. (Nasdaq: BIDU) (“Baidu”). Pursuant to the agreements, Baidu would acquire JOYY’s domestic video-based entertainment live streaming business (“YY Live”), which includes YY mobile app, YY.com website and PC YY, among others, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately US$3.6 billion in cash, subject to certain adjustments. Subsequently, the sale was substantially completed on February 8, 2021, with certain customary matters remaining to be completed in the near future. As a result, the historical financial results of YY Live are reflected in the Company’s consolidated financial statements as discontinued operations and the Company ceased consolidation of YY Live business since February 8, 2021. The financial information and non-GAAP financial information disclosed in this press release is presented on a continuing operations basis, unless otherwise specifically stated.

Due to the reasons mentioned above, the results of operations for the three months ended June 30, 2020 presented in this press release are not identical to the ones previously announced by the Company.

2 Net loss from continuing operations attributable to controlling interest of JOYY, is net loss from continuing operations less net (loss) income from continuing operations attributable to the non-controlling interest shareholders and the mezzanine equity classified as non-controlling interest shareholders.

These adjustments amounted to US$108.9 million and a reversal of US$22.0 million in the second quarter of 2021 and 2020, respectively. Please refer to the section titled “Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” for more details.

6 Average revenue per user is calculated by dividing our total revenues from live streaming on platforms including Bigo Live, Likee and imo during a given period by the number of paying users for our live streaming services on these platforms for that period.

The transaction was substantially completed on February 8, 2021, with certain customary matters remaining to be completed in the near future. As a result, JOYY has ceased consolidation of YY Live business since February 8, 2021 and classified all the related assets and liabilities subject to disposal and presented them on a net basis within prepayments and other current assets. The considerations received by the Company so far were recorded as advance payments received within accrued liabilities and other current liabilities.

(2) On January 1, 2021, the Company adopted ASU 2020-06, “Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity” using modified-retrospective transition approach. Following the adoption of this guidance, a cumulative effect adjustment of US$86.7 million was credited to retained earnings as of January 1, 2021.
