Mr. Zhengdong Zhu, Chairman and CEO of CDEL, said, "In the second quarter of fiscal 2020, we delivered year-over-year revenue growth of 8.1%, within our guidance range. The second quarter revenue growth was driven primarily by the healthy revenue growth of our industry-leading accounting vertical. In concert with our responsive measures to support our students across China during the Coronavirus Disease 2019 or COVID-19 epidemic, we offered free online courses to students in Hubei province, and significant discounts for certain online exam preparation courses to students outside Hubei, providing students with convenient access to high-quality online professional education at a time when offline classes were restricted. This initiative quickly attracted students across China to our online learning platform. As a result, our paid enrollments nearly doubled year-over-year in the second quarter, dramatically expanding our student base. While our efforts to support students during the COVID-19 outbreak negatively impacted our second quarter revenue and cash receipts growth, they underscore our commitment to social responsibility, our vision to cultivate online learning as a lifestyle, and our aim to be our students' life-long education partner of choice."

Mr. Zhu concluded, "In the second quarter of fiscal 2020, we officially commenced the third decade as China's preeminent provider of online professional education. During the past 20 years, CDEL has honed its comprehensive life-long learning ecosystem, as we consistently deliver best-of-breed educational content and integrate new technologies into our learning solutions. Looking ahead, we will remain focused on developing our life-long learning ecosystem, which now spans four key industry verticals – accounting, healthcare, engineering and construction, and legal; and provides students with a diverse portfolio of curricula that accommodates their different learning needs, styles and preferences. As online education continues to evolve and become a more widely accepted learning method, we are ready to leverage our extensive experience and compelling value proposition to serve a broader student audience, helping them achieve positive learning outcomes and realize continued advancement in their chosen careers."

Mr. Mark Marostica, Co-Chief Financial Officer of CDEL, added, "The second quarter of fiscal 2020 marks the fourth consecutive quarter of year-over-year improvement in operating margins. We are particularly pleased to report improved profitability in our second fiscal quarter, given the challenges we faced during the COVID-19 epidemic. Our profitability improvement demonstrates the resilience of our business model, coupled with our effective execution of cost control measures. With the second half of our fiscal year well underway, we will continue to proactively manage expenses while maintaining operating efficiency, with a goal of balancing our growth and profitability."

Second Quarter Fiscal 2020 Financial Results

Net Revenue. Total net revenue increased by 8.1% to $41.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 from $38.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. Net revenue from online education services, books and reference materials, and other sources contributed 79.8%, 11.7% and 8.5%, respectively, of total net revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2020.

Online education services. Net revenue from online education services increased by 19.9% to $33.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 from $27.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2019, mainly due to healthy revenue growth from the accounting vertical.

Books and reference materials. Net revenue from books and reference materials decreased by 9.6% to $4.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 from $5.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2019, primarily attributable to the delay in publication of certain Legal Professional Qualification Examination books, due to the impact of COVID-19.

Others. Net revenue from other sources decreased by 34.6% to $3.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 from $5.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2019, primarily due to a significant decrease in revenue from sale of college-related learning simulation software, resulting from the impact of COVID-19.

Cost of Sales. Cost of sales decreased by 11.9% to $20.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, from $23.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. Non-GAAP[1] cost of sales decreased by 12.1% to $20.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, from $23.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The decrease in cost of sales was primarily attributable to a decrease in salaries and related expenses, cost of purchase related to sale of learning simulation software, rental and related expenses, and lecture fees.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin. Gross profit was $21.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, up 38.1% from $15.5 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP[1] gross profit was $21.4 million, increasing by 38.4% from $15.5 million in the prior year period. Gross margin was 51.0% in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, compared with 39.9% in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. Non-GAAP[1] gross margin was 51.1% in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, compared with 39.9% in the second quarter of fiscal 2019.

Operating Expenses. Total operating expenses increased by 4.7% to $21.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, from $20.4 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP[1] total operating expenses increased by 4.0% to $20.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, from $19.9 million in the prior year period.

Selling expenses. Selling expenses increased by 10.7% to $15.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 from $13.8 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP[1] selling expenses increased by 10.5% to $15.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, from $13.8 million in the prior year period. The increase was primarily driven by higher advertising and promotional expenses, the increase in commission to agents, and higher rental and related expenses, partially offset by a decrease in salaries and related expenses.

General and administrative expenses. General and administrative expenses decreased by 7.7% to $6.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 from $6.6 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP[1] general and administrative expenses decreased by 10.7% to $5.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, from $6.1 million in the prior year period. The decrease was mainly due to lower salaries and related expenses.

Income Tax (Expenses) Benefit. Income tax expense was $0.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, compared with income tax benefit of $1.3 million in the prior year period, primarily due to the taxable income in the second quarter of fiscal 2020.

Net Income (Loss) Attributable to CDEL. As a result of the foregoing, net income attributable to CDEL was $4.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, compared with net loss attributable to CDEL of $3.9 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP[1] net income attributable to CDEL was $5.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, compared with non-GAAP[1] net loss attributable to CDEL of $3.4 million in the prior year period.

Operating Cash Flow. Net operating cash inflow decreased by 28.7% to $11.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 from $16.5 million in the prior year period. The operating cash inflow was mainly attributable to net income before non-cash items generated in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. The decrease in prepayments and other current assets, the increase in accrued expenses and other liabilities, and the decrease/increase in amount due from/to related parties also contributed to the operating cash inflow. The operating cash inflow was partially offset by the increase in inventories and the decrease in deferred tax liabilities.

Cash and Cash Equivalents, Term Deposits, Restricted Cash and Short-term Investments. Cash and cash equivalents, term deposits, restricted cash and short-term investments as of March 31, 2020 decreased by 10.8% to $130.2 million from $145.9 million as of December 31, 2019, mainly due to (i) the repayment of offshore loans of $20.4 million, (ii) the repayment of onshore loan of $1.1 million, (iii) the payment of an investment of $0.7 million and (iv) the capital expenditure of $1.2 million. The decrease was partially offset by the operating cash inflow generated in the second quarter of fiscal 2020.

Statement Regarding Unaudited Financial Information

The unaudited financial information set forth in this press release is preliminary and subject to adjustments. Adjustments to the financial statements may be identified when audit work is performed for the year-end audit, which could result in significant differences from this preliminary unaudited financial information.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the Company uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP net income attributable to CDEL, operating income, gross profit, cost of sales, selling expenses, general and administrative expenses, net income margin attributable to CDEL, operating margin, gross profit margin, and basic and diluted earnings per ADS and per share attributable to CDEL. 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 GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this release.

The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance by excluding share-based compensation expenses. However, non-GAAP financial measures may not be indicative of the Company's operating performance from a cash perspective. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing its performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to the Company's historical performance and liquidity. The Company computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision making. A limitation of excluding share-based compensation expenses from the above-mentioned line items and presenting these non-GAAP measures is that such items may continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in our business. Management compensates for this limitation by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying table at the end of this release provides more detail on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.
