“Following the solid growth momentum in the first quarter, and despite increasing macro uncertainties, we again delivered strong and healthy revenue and profitability growth in the second quarter of 2019,” said Mr. Xiaoping Chen, Founder, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer of Viomi.

“As part of our core strategy for this year, we have continued to introduce additional product lines and SKUs over the past several months to enhance and complement our diversified IoT @ Home product portfolio. For example, in April 2019, we brought to market new series of Xiaomi-branded water purifier products, including both 500-gallon and 600-gallon versions. We also recently launched a new ultra-thin series of Xiaomi-branded water purifiers. In June 2019, we launched Cross 2, the second generation of our Viomi-branded range hood with innovative motion-gesture Artificial Intelligence of Things (“AIoT”) features, and also brought to market a new Xiaomi-branded range hood and stove series, which have been well received by the market,” added Mr. Chen.

“We will continue our emphasis on product innovation and development, and have numerous new and exciting products in the pipeline for the second half of 2019. Our 21Face series of smart large-screen refrigerators remains a key strategic focus and growth driver, with user experience and functionalities being constantly upgraded and enhanced, in addition to complementary SKUs being introduced to the market. Further, we have stepped up our investment and preparation in anticipation of the upcoming 5G era, which we expect to trigger another growth cycle for the home appliances industry in China,” concluded Mr. Chen.

“Product sales, in particular sales of our Viomi-branded products, continued to be strong in the second quarter of 2019, with net revenues increasing by 63.6% on a year-over-year basis to RMB1.16 billion, in line with our previous guidance. We are also pleased to report that the revenues from our smart water purification systems resumed healthy growth in the second quarter, achieving a 21.2% increase on a year-over-year basis. The Company’s overall gross margin for the second quarter remained solid at 26.6%, and non-GAAP net income grew by 113.7% year-over-year to RMB99.3 million, with sequential growth accelerating significantly again. Non-GAAP net income margin increased to 8.6% in the second quarter of 2019, compared to 6.5% in the second quarter of 2018, primarily attributable to greater economies of scale, together with prudent cost control measures,” Mr. Shun Jiang, Chief Financial Officer of Viomi, commented.

“With regard to our channel expansion, we continue to see strong interest from franchisees in the Viomi brand. The number of Viomi offline experience stores reached approximately 1,900 as of the end of the second quarter of 2019, compared to approximately 1,600 as of the end of the first quarter. We also continued to deepen our household user penetration, with more than 2.3 million household users as of the end of the second quarter of 2019, compared to approximately 2.0 million as of the end of the first quarter. Further, the percentage of our household users owning at least two or more of our IoT products, increased to 16.1%, from 15.2% as of the end of the first quarter,” Mr. Jiang concluded.

  • Other smart products. Revenues from other smart products increased by 163.2% to RMB209.9 million (US$30.6 million) from RMB79.8 million for the second quarter of 2018.

Selling and marketing expenses increased by 21.3% to RMB129.5 million (US$18.9 million) from RMB106.7 million for the second quarter of 2018, primarily due to an increase in logistics expenses amounting to RMB16.2 million (US$2.4 million) as a result of the growth of the Company’s business.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company, non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shareholders, non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ordinary shares and non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ADS, which are non-GAAP financial measures, in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. Non-GAAP operating income is income from operations excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP net income is net income excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company is net income attributable to the Company excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shareholders is net income attributable to ordinary shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses. The non-GAAP adjustments do not have any tax impact as share-based compensation expenses are non-deductible for income tax purpose.

The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures help identify underlying trends in its business by excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses, which are non-cash charges, and these measures provide useful information about the Company’s operating results, enhance the overall understanding of the Company’s past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the Company’s management in its financial and operational decision-making.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or construed as alternative to income from operations, net income, or any other measure of performance or as an indicator of the Company’s operating performance. Investors are encouraged to review the historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Non-GAAP financial measures presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures to the Company’s data. We encourage investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

This announcement contains currency conversions of RMB amounts into U.S. dollars (“US$”) solely for the convenience of the reader.
