    “We are pleased to report another quarter of solid growth across the board, driven primarily by growth from our existing online stores and improving operational efficiency as we invest further in developing new and innovative products and tools,” commented Mr. Vincent Qiu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Baozun. “I am proud of the experience and capabilities we have accumulated from participating in the Singles Day shopping festival over the past decade. This year total order value settled through payment gateways on all of our e-commerce channels reached a new record high of RMB6.55 billion on Singles Day 2018, an increase of approximately 31% compared to last year. Investing in R&D plays a critical role in our strategy which we strongly believe will lay a solid foundation for our long-term sustainable growth. We will continue to refine, update, commercialize, and expand the omni-channel matrix of solutions we are able to offer brand partners to drive future growth and strengthen our leading position in China’s brand e-commerce market.”    

    Mr. Beck Chen, Chief Financial Officer of Baozun commented, “We had another strong quarter, with total GMV increasing 55.0% year-over-year and non-distribution GMV growing even faster at 62.4% year-over-year. We invested RMB20.1 million in technological innovation and productization during the quarter, which will strengthen our position as the leading brand e-commerce business partner and technology solutions services provider. Our daily sales momentum during the fourth quarter of 2018 continues to remain strong and outpace the growth on Singles Day this year. As such, we expect our GMV for the fourth quarter of 2018 to grow 40-45% on a year-over-year basis while our services revenue during the fourth quarter of 2018 will grow faster than the GMV growth.”

    Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results

    Total net revenues were RMB1,110.8 million (US$161.7 million), an increase of 24.8% from RMB890.2 million in the same quarter of last year.

    Product sales revenue was RMB504.5 million (US$73.5 million), an increase of 6.8% from RMB472.5 million in the same quarter of last year. The increase was primarily attributable to the increase in product sales revenue resulting from the increased popularity of brand partners’ products and Baozun’s increasingly effective marketing and promotional campaigns, which was partially offset by the transition of a leading electronics brand partner’s business from the distribution model to the consignment model in September 2017.

    Services revenue was RMB606.2 million (US$88.3 million), an increase of 45.1% from RMB417.7 million in the same quarter of last year. The increase was primarily attributable to the rapid growth in sales from existing brand partners and the addition of new brand partners under the Company’s consignment model and service fee model.

    Total operating expenses were RMB1,071.5 million (US$156.0 million), compared with RMB862.4 million in the same quarter of last year.

    • Cost of products was RMB401.2 million (US$58.4 million), compared with RMB407.5 million in the same quarter of last year. The decrease was primarily due to the transition of a leading electronics brand partner’s business from the distribution model to the consignment model in September 2017 and improved margins from product sales.

    • Fulfillment expenses were RMB262.0 million (US$38.2 million), compared with RMB173.3 million in the same quarter of last year. The increase was primarily due to an increase in GMV from the Company’s consignment model business and increased warehouse rental expenses.

    • Sales and marketing expenses were RMB301.1 million (US$43.8 million), compared with RMB222.0 million in the same quarter of last year. The increase was primarily due to the addition of online store operational staff and an increase in promotional and marketing expenses associated with Company-operated online stores.

    • Technology and content expenses were RMB69.5 million (US$10.1 million), compared with RMB35.6 million in the same quarter of last year. The increase was primarily due to increased investments in innovation and productization, and recruitment of additional technology-focused staff.

    • General and administrative expenses were RMB41.0 million (US$6.0 million), compared with RMB29.6 million in the same quarter of last year. The increase was primarily due to an increase in administrative, corporate strategy, and business planning staff.

    Income from operations was RMB39.3 million (US$5.7 million), compared with RMB27.8 million in the same quarter of last year. Operating margin was 3.5%, compared with 3.1% in the same quarter of last year.

    Non-GAAP income from operations was RMB61.2 million (US$8.9 million), compared with RMB41.2 million in the same quarter of last year. Non-GAAP operating margin was 5.5%, compared with 4.6% in the same quarter of last year.

    Net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun Inc. was RMB29.8 million (US$4.3 million), an increase of 35.8% from the same quarter of last year. Basic and diluted net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun Inc. per ADS were RMB0.52 (US$0.08) and RMB0.50 (US$0.07), respectively, compared with RMB0.40 and RMB0.37, respectively, in the same period of 2017.

    Non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun Inc. was RMB51.4 million (US$7.5 million), an increase of 46.7% from the same quarter of last year. Basic and diluted non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun Inc. per ADS were RMB0.90 (US$0.13) and RMB0.86 (US$0.13), respectively, compared with RMB0.64 and RMB0.59, respectively, in the same period of 2017.

    As of September 30, 2018, the Company had RMB445.2 million (US$64.8 million) in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investment, a decrease from RMB557.4 million as of December 31, 2017 primarily due to inventory procurement in preparation for Singles Day 2018.

    Business Outlook

    The Company expects total net revenues to be between RMB2,200 million and RMB2,250 million for the fourth quarter of 2018.

    Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

    In evaluating the Company’s business, the Company considers and uses non-GAAP income/(loss) from operations, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income/(loss), non-GAAP net margin, non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun Inc. and non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun Inc. per ADS, as supplemental measures to review and assess the Company’s operating performance. 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 U.S. GAAP. Non-GAAP income/(loss) from operations is income/(loss) from operations excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisition. Non-GAAP operating margin is non-GAAP income from operations as a percentage of total net revenues. Non-GAAP net income/(loss) is net income/(loss) excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisition. Non-GAAP net margin is non-GAAP net income as a percentage of total net revenues.  Non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun Inc. is net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun Inc. excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisition. Non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun Inc. per ADS is non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun Inc. divided by weighted average number of shares used in calculating net income per ordinary share multiplied by three.

    The Company presents the non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by the Company’s management to evaluate the Company’s operating performance and formulate business plans. Non-GAAP income/(loss) from operations and non-GAAP net income/(loss) enable the Company’s management to assess the Company’s operating results without considering the impact of share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisition. The Company also believes that the use of the non-GAAP measures facilitate investors’ assessment of the Company’s operating performance.

    The non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. One of the key limitations of using non-GAAP income/(loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income/(loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun Inc., and non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun Inc. per ADS is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect the Company’s operations. Share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisition have been and may continue to be incurred in the Company’s business and is not reflected in the presentation of non-GAAP income/(loss) from operations and non-GAAP net income/(loss). Further, the non-GAAP measures may differ from the non-GAAP measures used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited. In light of the foregoing limitations, the non-GAAP financial measures that we use should not be considered in isolation from or as an alternative to the GAAP financial measures from which they are derived.

    The Company compensates for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measures, which should be considered when evaluating the Company’s performance.  For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the section of the accompanying tables titled, “Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results.”
