Disclaimer: When preparing the unaudited condensed consolidated financial information for the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company revisited the presentation of revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2016, and concluded that certain revenue recognized on a gross basis disclosed in the earning release dated August 22, 2016 for the second quarter of 2016 should have been presented on a net basis in accordance with relevant US GAAP. Accordingly, the Company revised revenue and cost of revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2016 to reflect such change of gross presentation to net presentation.

Second Quarter 2017 Highlights

  • Revenues in the second quarter of 2017 were $20.6 million, an increase of 35.5% from $15.2 million in the second quarter of 2016.
  • Gross profit was $0.1 million in the second quarter of 2017, improving from a gross loss of $45 thousand in the second quarter of 2016.
  • B2B online platform recorded gross billing of RMB 2,355 million (US$347 million) in the second quarter of 2017, measured in terms of gross merchandise value ("GMV"), increasing 47.4% from gross billing of RMB 1,598 million (US$240 million) in the second quarter of 2016.
  • Active customer accounts increased to 33,170 as of June 30, 2017, increasing 1.2% from 32,775 as of June 30, 2016.
  • Third-party sellers on the Company's JMU online marketplace increased to 16,170 as of June 30, 2017, compared to 14,085 as of June 30, 2016.

Ms. Xiaoxia Zhu, Co-chairperson and Chief Executive Officer commented, "We are pleased with our progress in the second quarter, our third consecutive quarter of double-digit revenue growth and a return to positive gross profit margin. We have been diligent in our efforts to actively expand our supplier portfolio to provide more customer choice as well as explore new profit drivers. We added over 300 hundred product suppliers onto our platform in the second quarter. In addition to adding traditional food raw material and seasoning suppliers, we also broadened our product offering by adding select interior design, kitchen equipment and pest control suppliers to provide our customers a one-stop service to penetrate the local restaurant market.

"We have also been actively seeking opportunities to broaden our exposure to the B2C market. We recently entered into partnership with Nippon ACCESS in Japan to strengthen our international food materials and product offering. Earlier this month, we signed a contract to oversee the store leasing process and became the exclusive supply chain service provider for a ten thousand square meter commercial space in Shanghai. We are dedicated to build meaningful partnerships and to further solidify our advantages in the food service sector. Looking ahead to the second half of 2017, we will continue our focus on organic growth as well as turning profitable."

Recent Corporate Highlights

  • On August 7, JMU entered into Strategic Partnership with Century Link and TANSH to develop Project "Lane1192" in Century Link. Under the cooperation, JMU will participate in store leasing process and provide the integrated services of a back-end restaurant ERP system and supply chain logistics.
  • In July, JMU announced three-way strategic cooperation with Nippon ACCESS and TANSH to develop international trade, research and development of food materials and food products, as well as overall supply chain cooperation.

Second Quarter 2017 Financial Performance

Revenues were $20.6 million for the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 35.5% from $15.2 million in the second quarter of 2016. The growth of revenue in the second quarter 2017 was mainly due to the ongoing increase in sales from online direct sales.

Cost of revenues was $20.4 million in second quarter 2017, an increase of 34.2% from $15.2 million in the second quarter of 2016, which was generally in line with revenue growth.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2017 was $134 thousand, as compared to gross loss of $45 thousand in second quarter 2016. The improvement was mainly attributable to JMU's new pricing strategy and higher discounts in purchasing price from suppliers due to sizable trading volume.

Operating expenses were $5.7 million in the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 1.0% from $5.6 million in the prior year period. The increase in operating expenses was mainly due to share-based compensation accrued in the second quarter of 2017 which did not occur in the same period last year.

Loss from operations in second quarter 2017 was $5.5 million, a decrease of 2.2% from $5.6 million in second quarter 2016.

Net loss attributable to the Company in the second quarter of 2017 was $5.1 million, consistent with the second quarter of 2016. Non-GAAP net loss attributable to the Company, which excludes amortization of acquired intangible assets, share-based compensation and related provision for income tax benefits, was $3.1 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $3.5 million in the second quarter of 2016. For the quarter ended June 30, 2017 and June 30, 2016, the Company's weighted average number of ordinary shares used in computing loss per ordinary share was 1,476,057,773 and 1,476,208,670, respectively.

As of June 30, 2017, the Company's cash and cash equivalents was $1.1 million, a decrease of 57.5% as compared to $2.6 million as of December 31, 2016. Total shareholders' equity remained stable at $245.0 million, compared to $248.4 million at the end of 2016.

Note 1: Non-GAAP measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("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.

Reconciliations of our non-GAAP financial measures to our U.S. GAAP financial measures are shown in tables at the end of this earnings release, which provide more details about the non-GAAP financial measures.

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.

Our non-GAAP information (including non-GAAP loss from operations and net loss attributable to the Company) which is adjusted from results based on U.S. GAAP to exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, share-based compensation and income tax benefits. 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.
