111, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2024 Unaudited Financial Results


  • Turned to Quarterly Operational Profitability for the First Time
  • Operating Expenses as a Percentage of Revenues Decreased 120 Basis Points YoY to 5.8%
  • Achieved Positive Operating Cash Flow

SHANGHAI, May 23, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- 111, Inc. ("111" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: YI), a leading tech-enabled healthcare platform company committed to reshaping the value chain of healthcare industry by digitally empowering the upstream and downstream in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024.

First Quarter 2024 Highlights

  • Net revenues were RMB3.5 billion (US$488.7 million) and Gross segment profit (1) was RMB 208.5 million (US$ 28.9 million). Due to the sudden surge in medicine demand during the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic in Q1 2023, net revenue and gross segment profit had a 4.6% and 11.7% decrease respectively.
  • Total operating expenses were RMB204.8 million (US$28.4 million), an improvement of 20.6% compared to RMB257.9 million in the same quarter of last year. As a percentage of net revenues, total operating expenses decreased by 120 basis points to 5.8% from 7.0% in the same quarter of last year, which reflected continuous improvement in our operation efficiency.
  • Income from operations was RMB3.7 million (US$0.5 million), compared to loss from operations was RMB21.7 million in the same quarter of last year. This marks 111's inaugural operational income on a quarterly basis.
  • Non-GAAP income from operations (2) was RMB8.9 million (US$1.2 million), representing an increase of 259.2% compared to RMB2.5 million in the same quarter of last year. As a percentage of net revenues, non-GAAP income from operations accounted for 0.3% in the quarter, an increase of 20 basis points from 0.1% in the same quarter of last year.

 



(1)  Gross segment profit represents net revenues less cost of goods sold.

(2)  Non-GAAP income from operations represents income from operations excluding share-based compensation expenses.

Mr. Junling Liu, Co-Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer of 111, commented, "We are delighted to start the year with a major milestone in the first quarter of 2024 as our continuous operational enhancements empowered us to turn to operational profitability for the first time. Notably, income from operations reached RMB3.7 million during the period, a wonderfully positive shift from an operational loss of RMB21.7 million a year ago. This was achieved despite a decrease in first-quarter revenue because of a higher baseline set in the corresponding period of 2023 during the peak of the pandemic. Non-GAAP income from operations even more than tripled year over year to a record high of RMB8.9 million. Our performance in the quarter validates the effectiveness of our business model as a leading tech-enabled healthcare platform company committed to digitally empower the entire healthcare value chain as well as our growth strategies.

Mr. Liu added, "We successfully elevated our operational efficiency after disciplined expense optimization across the whole organization. Our operating expenses as a percentage of net revenues decreased 120 basis points to 5.8%, while the ratio for non-GAAP operating expenses fell 60 basis points to 5.7%, reflecting our efforts for prudent resource management in the pursuit of sustainable growth. We anticipate the possibility of further operating cost reductions and higher efficiency as we scale up our business and refine operations. Our ambition is to stand out as the pinnacle of efficiency in the pharmaceutical e-commerce realm, and we strive to amplify our operational effectiveness to sharpen our competitive edge."

"Furthermore, our investments in technology empowerment effectively drove up operational efficiency and customer engagement. We also made novel supply chain advancement that will unlock new growth opportunities, highlighted by our launch of a new delivery and transit model for streamlining logistics and saving fulfilment costs. Our pioneering role in digital commerce transformation and commitment to innovative excellence has also been recognized as we obtained significant accolades and a new patent from government agencies and professional institutions."

"Looking ahead, we will remain dedicated to delivering one-stop shopping experiences supported by the most comprehensive and cost-effective product portfolio. With our internal 100% digital operating system at our core, we've attained unmatched operational efficiency within the industry. We are well positioned to empower both upstream and downstream customers to improve efficiency for the entire industry and reshape the traditional value chain. Our focus on strengthened partnership with pharmaceutical companies, strategic investments in operational efficiency, as well as relentless commitment to digitalization and AI innovation will enable us to capture greater market share and growth for higher revenue and profit levels. We are confident that these initiatives will solidify our leadership in the market, and we look forward to continuously generating value to our shareholders, customers, and stakeholders in the quarters ahead."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders, and non-GAAP loss per ADS, as supplemental measures to review and assess its operating performance. The Company defines non-GAAP income from operations as income (loss) from operations excluding share-based compensation expenses. The Company defines non-GAAP net income as net loss excluding share-based compensation expenses, net of tax. The Company defines non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders as net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses, net of tax. The Company defines non-GAAP loss per ADS as net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders per ADS excluding share-based compensation expenses, net of tax per ADS. 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 U.S. GAAP.

The Company believes that non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders, and non-GAAP loss per ADS help identify underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain expenses that it includes in income (loss) from operations and net loss. Share-based compensation expenses is a non-cash expense that varies from period to period. As a result, management excludes the items from its internal operating forecasts and models. Management believes that the adjustments for share-based compensation expenses provide investors with a reasonable basis to measure the company's core operating performance, in a more meaningful comparison with the performance of other companies. The Company believes that non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders, and non-GAAP loss per ADS provide useful information about its operating results, enhances the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the management in their financial and operational decision-making.

The 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 income from operations, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders, or non-GAAP loss per ADS is that it does not reflect all items of income and expense that affect the Company's operations. Further, the non-GAAP financial 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 most comparable U.S. GAAP measures, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company's performance. The Company encourages you to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measures is included at the end of this press release.
