New student enrollment increased remarkably by 51.8% year-over-year to 140,726 in the fourth quarter.

"As the post-graduate entrance exams for 2021 concluded in December with registered applicants reaching a record high of almost 3.8 million, we are well-prepared to handle the growing volume and demand. Our master’s degree-oriented programs demonstrated robust growth momentum in 2020 and recorded RMB632.9 million in gross billings, with an increase of 49.5% compared with 2019. The solid performance was the result of our high-quality and tailored courses that helped capture the increasing number of applicants for post-graduate studies. We also continued our expansion of professional certification and skills programs, which yielded very encouraging results in the fourth quarter. As we head further into 2021, we are committed to the further development and roll-out of top-notch and diversified products and services for adult continuing education and skills training while keeping a close eye on improving operating efficiency as well as expanding and enhancing sales channels," concluded Mr. Liu.

Ms. Selena Lu Lv, Chief Financial Officer of Sunlands, said, "In the fourth quarter we deepened our strategy to balance business growth and profitability in a challenging environment. Our net revenues continued to grow at a healthy rate, exceeding the high end of our guidance by 4.4%. As we further improved operating efficiency and optimized costs, our general and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter declined 44.6% year-over-year, which contributed to the significant narrowing of our net loss to RMB73.5 million from RMB139.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Our net loss margin decreased considerably to 12.6% from 25.4% in the fourth quarter of 2019. Going forward, we will continue to refine our operation and sales execution as we strive for robust and sustainable long-term growth, in order to consistently create value for our students and shareholders, as well as the broader society."

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use gross billings, EBITDA, non-GAAP Operating cost and expense, non-GAAP loss from operations and Non-GAAP net loss per share, each a non-GAAP financial measure, in evaluating our operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes.

We define gross billings for a specific period as the total amount of cash received for the sale of course packages, net of the total amount of refunds paid in such period. Our management uses gross billings as a performance measurement because we generally bill our students for the entire course tuition at the time of sale of our course packages and recognize revenue proportionally over a period. EBITDA is defined as net loss excluding depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest income, and income tax expenses. We believe that gross billings and EBITDA provide valuable insight into the sales of our course packages and the performance of our business.

These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, their most directly comparable financial measure prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measures to their respective most directly comparable GAAP measure has been provided in the tables included below. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measures to their respective most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. As gross billings, EBITDA, operating cost and expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, general and administrative expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, sales and marketing expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, product development expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, non-GAAP net loss exclude share-based compensation expenses, and basic and diluted net loss per share excluding share-based compensation expenses have material limitations as an analytical metric and may not be calculated in the same manner by all companies, it may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider gross billings and EBITDA as a substitute for, or superior to, their respective most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. We encourage investors and others to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
