Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Revenues

Total revenues were RMB309.1 million (US$46.1 million), a decrease of 31.6% from RMB451.8 million in the same period of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in average revenue per paying medical service provider which was impacted by the resurgence of COVID-19 and the weakening macro-economic environment.

  • Information services and other revenues were RMB219.3 million (US$32.7 million), a decrease of 39.2% from RMB360.7 million in the same period of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in average revenue per paying medical service provider subscribing to information services.
  • Reservation services revenues were RMB30.6 million (US$4.6 million), a decrease of 66.4% from RMB91.1 million in the same period of 2021.The decrease was primarily due to the impact by the resurgence of COVID-19 in certain cities in China and adoption of new operating strategy which gave higher subsidies to end users.
  • Sales of equipment and maintenance services revenues were RMB59.1 million (US$8.8 million), from Wuhan Miracle Laser Systems, Inc. (“Wuhan Miracle”).

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues were RMB104.5 million (US$15.6 million), an increase of 77.7% from RMB58.8 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily due to the consolidation of Wuhan Miracle. Cost of revenues included share-based compensation expenses of RMB2.7 million (US$0.4 million) during the second quarter of 2022, compared with RMB3.8 million in the corresponding period of 2021.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses were RMB246.6 million (US$36.8 million), a decrease of 26.5% from RMB335.4 million in the second quarter of 2021.

  • Sales and marketing expenses were RMB121.7 million (US$18.2 million), a decrease of 41.1% from RMB206.7 million in the second quarter of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in expenses associated with branding and user acquisition activities. Sales and marketing expenses for the second quarter of 2022 included share-based compensation expenses of RMB2.2 million (US$0.3 million), compared with RMB1.6 million in the corresponding period of 2021.
  • General and administrative expenses were RMB61.8 million (US$9.2 million), an increase of 9.4% from RMB56.5 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily due to the consolidation of Wuhan Miracle and the increase of professional services fee. General and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2022 included share-based compensation expenses of RMB2.2 million (US$0.3 million), compared with RMB7.2 million in the corresponding period of 2021.
  • Research and development expenses were RMB63.1 million (US$9.4 million), a decrease of 12.5% from RMB72.1 million in the second quarter of 2021. The decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in payroll costs associated with the employee headcount. Research and development expenses for the second quarter of 2022 included share-based compensation expenses of RMB2.5 million (US$0.4 million), compared with RMB3.6 million in the corresponding period of 2021.

As of June 30, 2022, cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and term deposits, term deposits and short-term investments were RMB1,598.9 million (US$238.7 million), compared with RMB1,756.0 million as of December 31, 2021.

Business Outlook

For the third quarter of 2022, So-Young expects total revenues to be between RMB310 million (US$46.3 million) and RMB330 million (US$49.3 million), representing a 28.1% to 23.5% decrease from the same period in 2021. The above outlook is based on the current market conditions and reflects the Company’s preliminary estimates of market and operating conditions, as well as customer demand, which are all subjected to change, particularly in view of the potential impact of the COVID-19, the effects of which are difficult to analyze and predict.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, this press release presents non-GAAP (loss)/income from operations and non-GAAP net (loss)/income attributable to So-Young International Inc. by excluding share-based compensation expenses from (loss)/income from operations and net (loss)/income attributable to So-Young International Inc., respectively. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are important to help investors understand the Company’s operating and financial performance, compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis and assess the Company’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. This is not reflected in the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures, but should be considered in the overall evaluation of the Company’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 the Company’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.
