Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

REVENUES

Total net revenues increased by 136.1% to US$829.4 million from US$351.3 million in the prior year period, primarily driven by growth in the number of active customers and total orders.

The number of active customers for the second quarter of 2014 increased by 167.9% to 9.3 million from 3.5 million in the prior year period. The number of total orders for the second quarter of 2014 increased by 138.4% to 26.3 million from 11.0 million in the prior year period. This increase was primarily due to increased brand recognition, the Company's continued efforts to optimize and increase brand and product selections available on both PC and mobile platforms as well as the Lefeng acquisition.

GROSS PROFIT

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2014 increased by 149.0% to US$205.8 million from US$82.6 million in the prior year period. Gross margin increased to 24.8% in the second quarter of 2014 from 23.5% in the prior year period.

OPERATING INCOME AND EXPENSES

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2014 increased by 141.7% to US$186.9 million from US$77.3 million in the prior year period. As a percentage of total net revenues, total operating expenses remained stable at 22.5% compared with the prior year period.

  • Fulfillment expenses increased by 95.8% to US$83.8 million from US$42.8 million in the prior year period, primarily reflecting the increase in sales volume and number of orders fulfilled. As a percentage of total net revenues, fulfillment expenses decreased to 10.1% from 12.2% in the prior year period, which reflects the Company's continued efforts to reduce warehousing and personnel costs, and negotiate better courier rates leveraging the growing order volume.
  • Marketing expenses increased by 196.7% to US$44.8 million from US$15.1 million in the prior year period. As a percentage of total net revenues, marketing expenses increased to 5.4% from 4.3% in the prior year period, reflecting the Company's strategy to reinvest its profit in the business to drive long term growth, by building greater brand awareness, acquiring more mobile users, and expanding our market share in our core product categories other than apparel, such as cosmetics, home goods and baby products.
  • Technology and content expenses increased by 147.2% to US$21.4 million from US$8.7 million in the prior year period, primarily reflecting the Company's continued effort to invest in its overall IT systems to better support future growth. As a percentage of total net revenues, technology and content expenses remained stable at 2.6% compared with 2.5% in the prior year period.
  • General and administrative expenses increased by 243.0% to US$36.9 million from US$10.8 million in the prior year period, primarily due to increased headcount and office rentals associated with the growth in the Company's overall business. As a percentage of total net revenues, general and administrative expenses increased to 4.4% from 3.1% in the prior year period due to headcount expansion and the amortization of intangible assets resulting from the acquisition of Lefeng.

These forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as "will," "expects," "anticipates," "future," "intends," "plans," "believes," "estimates" and similar statements. Among other things, the business outlook and quotations from management in this announcement, as well as Vipshop's strategic and operational plans, contain forward-looking statements. Vipshop may also make written or oral forward-looking statements in its periodic reports to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), in its annual report to shareholders, in press releases and other written materials and in oral statements made by its officers, directors or employees to third parties. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about Vipshop's beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties. A number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement, including but not limited to the following: Vipshop's goals and strategies; Vipshop's future business development, results of operations and financial condition; the expected growth of the online discount retail market in China; Vipshop's ability to attract customers and brand partners and further enhance its brand recognition; Vipshop's expectations regarding demand for and market acceptance of flash sales products and services; competition in the discount retail industry; fluctuations in general economic and business conditions in China and assumptions underlying or related to any of the foregoing. Further information regarding these and other risks is included in Vipshop's filings with the SEC.

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"), except that the consolidated statement of shareholders' equity, consolidated statements of cash flows, and the detailed notes required by Accounting Standards Codification 270 Interim Reporting ("ASC270"), have not been presented. Vipshop uses non-GAAP net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders, non-GAAP net income per diluted ADS, non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income margin, and non-GAAP operating income margin, each of which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Non-GAAP net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders is net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets. Non-GAAP net income per diluted ADS is non-GAAP net income divided by weighted average number of diluted ADS. Non-GAAP income from operations is income from operations excluding share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets. Non-GAAP operating income margin is non-GAAP income from operations as a percentage of total net revenues. Non-GAAP net income margin is non-GAAP net income as a percentage of total net revenues. The Company believes that separate analysis and exclusion of the non-cash impact of share-based compensation and amortization of intangible assets adds clarity to the constituent parts of its performance. The Company reviews these non-GAAP financial measures together with GAAP financial measures to obtain a better understanding of its operating performance. It uses these non-GAAP financial measures for planning, forecasting and measuring results against the forecast. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures are useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance without the effect of non-cash share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets, which have been and will continue to be significant recurring expenses in its business. 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 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 measure 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 "Vipshop Holdings Limited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" at the end of this release.
