JMU Limited Reports Audited Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Results

SHANGHAI, July 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- JMU Limited (the "Company" or "JMU") (Nasdaq: JMU), a B2B online e-commerce platform that provides integrated services to suppliers and customers in the foodservice industry in China, today announced its audited financial results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018.

Fiscal Year 2018 Highlights

  • Revenues in 2018 were $36.5 million, representing a decrease of 58.9% from $88.7 million in 2017. The decrease was mainly due to the Company re-examining its B2B platform business and re-developing and transforming its future positioning and strategy in 2018. During the year, the Company suspended businesses that were strategically misaligned, products with lower gross profit, and a portion of business and services that involved third-party sellers and buyers.  
  • Gross profit was $876 thousand in 2018, an increase of $327 thousand from 2017.
  • B2B online platform recorded gross billing of RMB7.7 billion (US$1.1 billion) in 2018, measured in terms of gross merchandise value ("GMV"), decreasing 51.9% from gross billing of RMB16.0 billion (US$ 2.5 billion) in 2017. The decrease was mainly due to the Company re-examining its B2B platform business and re-developing and transforming its future positioning and strategy in 2018.
  • Active customer accounts were 10,304 as of December 31, 2018, decreasing 68.8% from 33,025 as of December 31, 2017.
  • Third-party sellers on the Company's online marketplace decreased to 3,779 as of December 31, 2018, compared to over 15,800 as of December 31, 2017.

Ms. Xiaoxia Zhu, Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer commented, "Through re-examining and adjusting our strategy and business, we hope to bring better growth opportunities for JMU and create better market service value for our customers."

Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Performance

Revenues were $36.5 million for 2018, representing a decrease of 58.9% from $88.7 million in 2017. The decrease of revenue in 2018 was mainly due the Company re-examining its B2B platform business and re-developing and transforming its future positioning and strategy in 2018. During the year, the Company suspended businesses that were strategically misaligned, products with lower gross profit, and a portion of business and services that involved third-party sellers and buyers.

As a percentage of total revenue, selling and marketing expense was 15.9% and 17.1% in fiscal years 2018 and 2017, respectively. The decrease was primarily attributable to the impairment of acquired intangible assets decreasing to zero, which resulted in the amortization of intangible assets decreasing by $7.2 million.

Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP"), we use various non-GAAP financial measures that are adjusted from results based on U.S. GAAP to exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, share-based compensation and related provision for income tax benefits.

Our non-GAAP financial information is provided as additional information to help investors compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis and to enhance investors' overall understanding of the historical and current financial performance of our operations and our prospects for the future. Our non-GAAP financial information should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to U.S. GAAP financial results. In addition, our calculation of this non-GAAP financial information may be different from the calculation used by other companies, and therefore comparability may be limited.

A limitation of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that amortization of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, share-based compensation and related provision for income tax benefits have been and may continue to be for the foreseeable future significant recurring expenses in our results of operations. We compensate for these limitations by providing reconciliations of our non-GAAP financial measures to our U.S. GAAP financial measures. Please see the reconciliation tables at the end of this earnings release.
