Operating Highlights for the Third Fiscal Quarter Ended February 28, 2021

  • Total student enrollments in academic subjects tutoring and test preparation courses increased by 43% year-over-year to approximately 2,296,800 for the third fiscal quarter of 2021.
  • The total number of schools and learning centers was 1,625 as of February 28, 2021, an increase of 209 compared to 1,416 as of February 29, 2020, and an increase of 107 compared to 1,518 as of November 30, 2020. The total number of schools was 118 as of February 28, 2021.

Michael Yu, New Oriental’s Executive Chairman, commented, “We are pleased to see continued strong recovery of businesses for the third quarter despite the challenges from a small wave of Covid-19 outbreak in around 20 cities in north China where we responded swiftly and migrated offline classes to online using our OMO system during the winter. Net revenue for the third quarter exceeded our expectation, up 29.0% year over year. Our key growth driver, K-12 all-subjects after-school tutoring business, achieved year-over-year revenue growth of approximately 37%. U-Can middle and high school all-subjects after-school tutoring business grew by approximately 35%, while our POP Kids program recorded a growth of approximately 40%. Overseas related businesses are still under pressure due to the uncertainty of the pandemic situation and travel restrictions around the globe. The overseas test preparation business declined by approximately 12%, while the overseas consulting and study tour business increased by 11%, respectively. Looking ahead, we believe our business will trend toward a normalized level in the coming quarters after seeing the underlying demand for after-school tutoring picking up rapidly as the pandemic situation was well controlled nationwide. As one of the market leaders in China, we are confident that our exceptional products and services, as well as our constantly enhanced learning experience would enable us to gain market share and deliver long-term value for our shareholders.”

Chenggang Zhou, New Oriental’s Chief Executive Officer, added, “We believe we are well positioned to capture the market consolidation opportunity as the pandemic fades. We remain committed to ramp up our expansion effort to prepare for further taking market share from other players post-COVID. During this quarter, we opened 1 new offline training school in the city of Hengshui. The total square meters of classroom area by the end of this quarter increased approximately 17% year-over-year, and 7% quarter-over-quarter. Student enrollments for K-12 after-school tutoring business during the quarter increase by 57% year-over-year. At the same time, we continued leveraging our OMO (online merging offline) strategy, which enables our service to virtually reach a broader pool of students in existing cities and the surrounding satellite cities. In the winter semester, we piloted the OMO online courses in vast majority of existing cities and around 25 new surrounding satellite cities, attracting a promising number of new customers, accompanied by improved student retention with low customer acquisition cost. These OMO initiatives, filled with localized and differentiating content, effectively boosted enrollments and revenue with low customer acquisition cost, enabled us to seize more market share and improved our overall profitability. We are pleased to see that the OMO initiatives have solicited an increased contribution to the Company’s overall revenue this quarter. Last but not least, our pure online education platform, Koolearn.com have successfully reduced their customer acquisition cost and enhanced overall in-class learning experience for customers.”

Stephen Zhihui Yang, New Oriental’s Executive President and Chief Financial Officer, commented, “With the gradual recovery of our topline, our margins have improved. Our Non-GAAP operating margin for the quarter was 9.7%, down 490 basis points year-over-year, which is a smaller year-over-year decline comparing with the previous quarter. Non-GAAP net margin for the quarter was 13.7%, down 240 basis points year-over-year.  We will continue to buckle down on cost control and be cautious in making investment in our OMO initiatives and pure online education platform in order to keep a balance in growth and profitability. “

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement New Oriental’s consolidated financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, New Oriental uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC: net income excluding share-based compensation expenses and gain / (loss) from fair value change of long-term investments, operating income / (loss) excluding share-based compensation expenses, operating cost and expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, general and administrative expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, operating margin excluding share-based compensation expenses, and basic and diluted net income per ADS and per share excluding share-based compensation expenses and gain / (loss) from fair value change of long-term investments. 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 tables captioned “Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures” set forth at the end of this release.

New Oriental believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding share-based compensation expenses and gain / (loss) from fair value change of long-term investments that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. New Oriental believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to 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 New Oriental’s historical performance and liquidity. New Oriental 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 using these non-GAAP measures is that they exclude share-based compensation expenses and gain / (loss) from fair value change of long-term investments that has been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in our business. Management compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying tables have more details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.
