  • As of June 30, 2021, the total number of brands of the Group reached 4,195, while the total number of private label brands of the Group reached 27.

Recent Developments

“During the first half of 2021, we made great progress on several fronts. In May, we successfully completed our initial public offering and listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Our debut in the global capital markets provides us with more opportunities, resources, and capital to drive our Company’s businesses. We remain fully committed to the mission of “Becoming the Dream Factory of Lifestyle Brands” and devote our entire effort to developing our own private label brands and strategic brands. We also continued to expand our premium product offerings to consumers. As of June 30, 2021, the number of our private label brands and strategic brands reached 27 and 111, respectively. We are also pleased to see the growing contribution from our private label brands and strategic brands to our total GMV. During the second quarter of 2021, the GMV of our private label brands and strategic brands, collectively, accounted for 43.8% of the Group’s total GMV compared with 30.5% in the same period of 2020.” commented Mr. Cong (Kenny) Li, Founder and CEO of Onion Global Limited.

“As we continued to progress, we are witnessing some market challenges such as increasing difficulties in online consumer acquisition, and rising user acquisition costs. We witnessed this challenge early on and were prepared with strategic plans. For example, to further improve our user acquisition capabilities, we lowered the threshold of subscription service fees for KOCs and optimized their incentive mechanisms. The industry and economic environment have also become more challenging this year. We have observed intense price competition in the e-commerce industry, while the global economy remains in a recovery period. The capacity of our distribution channels was affected by the industry and economic environment to some extent. To optimize our distribution channels, we will continue to enhance the types of distribution channels and further activate and improve the marketing capabilities of our existing KOCs. With respect to our products, we have developed a comprehensive plan to focus on the depth and breadth of the brands, develop and introduce more private label brands and continue to explore new strategic brands with clear potential to stimulate market vitality. Although these optimization measures affected our financial performance in the short term, we believe these efforts will play a positive role to the Group’s strategic development in the long term.” Mr. Li further commented.

“Despite the headwinds, we firmly believe that our strong market sense, agile nature, and excellent execution capabilities will bring us to the next milestone. We remain fully committed to meeting the needs of our users by creating more channels and penetrating everyone’s life with our products, services, and culture. Being only a five-year-old company, we are still in the nascent stages of our development but continue to drive forward with optimism and passion.”

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Total Revenues were RMB696.4 million (US$107.9 million) compared with total revenues of RMB1,096.8 million in the same period of 2020. The decreases were primarily due to a decline in the performance of the existing business modules as the Group deployed more resources into expanding the development of private label brands and new distribution channels.

  • Product revenues were RMB663.9 million (US$102.9 million), compared with RMB1,037.4 million in the same period of 2020.
  • Service revenues were RMB32.5 million (US$5.0 million), compared with RMB59.4 million in the same period of 2020.

Cost of revenues was RMB540.2 million (US$83.7 million), representing a decrease of 36.0% from RMB844.2 million in the same period of 2020, which is in line with the decrease in product revenues.

Gross profit was RMB156.2 million (US$24.2 million), compared to gross profit of RMB252.6 million in the same period of 2020. 

Gross margin was 22.4%, compared with 23.0% in the same period of 2020.

Fulfillment expenses were RMB43.7 million (US$6.8 million), a decrease of 12.8% from RMB50.2 million in the same period of 2020. The decrease was in line with the decrease in product revenues and was partially offset by higher unit prices for domestic packaging and express logistics. We have engaged with superior logistics service providers compared to last year to provide better service quality to our customers.

Technology and content expenses were RMB12.1 million (US$1.9 million), an increase of 140.5% from RMB5.0 million in the same period of 2020. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in research and development talents.

Selling and marketing expenses were RMB55.3 million (US$8.6 million), a decreased of 54.6% from RMB121.9 million in the same period of 2020. During the quarter, we analyzed the effectiveness of the existing distribution channels, and reduced inefficient channels resulting in the optimization of the existing distribution channel system.

General and administrative expenses were RMB379.7 million (US$58.8 million), compared to RMB12.4 million in the same period of 2020. The increase was primarily due to share-based compensation expenses and professional service fees related to the Initial Public Offering.

Total loss from operations was RMB333.1 million (US$51.6 million), compared with total income of RMB63.5 million in the same quarter of 2020.

Net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders was RMB332.4 million (US$51.5 million) or 47.7% net loss margin, compared to net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of RMB41.1 million or net margin of 3.7% in the same period of 2020.

Non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shareholders was RMB48.4 million (US$7.5 million), compared to RMB41.1 million in the same period of 2020. For more information on this non-GAAP financial measure, please see the table captioned “Onion Global Limited. Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” at the end of this announcement.

Basic and diluted Losses per share[6] was RMB36.0 (US$5.6), compared with earnings per share of RMB5 in the same quarter of 2020.

As of June 30, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of RMB433.5 million (US$67.1 million), compared to RMB273.2 million as of March 31, 2021. Short-term investments, as of June 30, 2021, decreased to RMB31.3 million (US$4.8 million) from RMB85.0 million as of March 31, 2021, as the Company redeemed certain short-term financial products in the second quarter of 2021.

Business Outlook
For the third quarter of 2021, the Company expects total revenues to be between RMB720 million and RMB760 million, representing a year-over-year decrease of 31% to 27%. This forecast reflects the strategic initiatives of the Group this year which is investing in growth, and is subject to change. We will invest more resources in the development of our private label brands and establishing new distribution channels. With the shifting of resources, the performance of our existing core business modules is expected to decline. The development of private label brands requires a certain incubation time, and the establishment of new distribution channel system is an exploratory process, so we expect this strategic investment period to last for the near term.

Safe Harbor Statement

Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about the Company’s beliefs and expectations, the Company’s forecasts, general observation of the industry and business outlook, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties and a number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as “may,” “will,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “target,” “aim,” “future,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “potential,” “estimates” “continue,” “is/are likely to,” or other similar statements.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The unaudited condensed consolidated financial information is prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).

The Company uses non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shareholders. Non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shareholders is net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses and listing related expenses.

The Company believes that separate analysis and exclusion of the one-off or non-cash impact of the above reconciling items adds clarity to the constituent parts of its performance. The Company reviews this non-GAAP financial measure together with GAAP financial measures to obtain a better understanding of its operating performance. It uses the non-GAAP financial measure for planning, forecasting and measuring results against the forecast. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measure is useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance.

However, the use of non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not include all items that impact the Company’s net income (loss) for the period. In addition, because non-GAAP financial measures are not measured in the same manner by all companies, they may not be comparable to other similar titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from or as an alternative to the financial measure prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned “Onion Global Limited Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” near the end of this release.
