    • New student enrollments were 133,887, representing a 63.2% increase year-over-year.[1]
    • As of June 30, 2018, deferred revenue balance was RMB2,893.5 million (US$437.3 million).

     

    [1] New student enrollments for a given period refers to the total number of orders placed by students that newly enroll in at least one course during that period (including those students that enroll and then terminate their enrollment with us).

    Mr. Tongbo Liu, Chief Executive Officer of Sunlands, said, "We achieved healthy revenue growth as students continued to realize the benefits of our highly effective mobile and online tutoring offerings. During the quarter, we improved our sales and marketing approach to enhance the experience of prospective users and optimize brand positioning. We also introduced free trial classes so that potential students can experience Sunlands' unique offering first-hand. We are pleased with the initial results of this initiative, which indicate that participants in free trial classes are significantly more likely to both become Sunlands' students and enroll in courses with higher price points. While it will take some time to realize the benefits of these initiatives, we are confident that they will translate into better user experience and more sustainable growth over the long term."

    "In the second quarter, we continued to invest in introducing better technology and content that improve learning efficiency and ultimately lead to higher test pass rates. We enhanced our content by doubling knowledge points, which are essential to improving learning effectiveness, to approximately 275,000 by the end of the second quarter. We also continued to roll out our AI-powered personalized study programs that accelerate the learning process and significantly improve learning outcomes. These initiatives have contributed to ongoing improvements in the pass rates of Sunlands' students. For example, Sunlands' students based in Jiangsu achieved a Self-Taught Higher Education Examination, or STE, pass rate of 79.2% in April 2018, compared to a pass rate of 71.9% in 2017. Looking ahead, we will continue to invest in our content, teaching quality and technology platform to cement our leading position in China's online post-secondary and professional education market."

    Mr. Steven Yipeng Li, Chief Financial Officer of Sunlands, said, "We are pleased to have exceeded our revenue projections reflecting the strong demand for online STE tutoring. In the second half of 2018, we will introduce new course packages and incrementally adjust pricing to better reflect the value we deliver to our students. At the same time, we will continue to focus on optimizing our sales and marketing operations to both increase effectiveness and improve the profitability of our business."

    Sales and marketing expenses increased by 105.8% to RMB581.7 million (US$87.9 million) from RMB282.6 million in the second quarter of 2017.

    General and administrative expenses increased by 258.8% to RMB92.2 million (US$13.9 million) from RMB25.7 million in the second quarter of 2017.

    About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

    We use gross billings and EBITDA, 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, amortization, 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.

    This non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, its most directly comparable financial measure prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measure to its 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 measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. As gross billings and EBITDA 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, net revenues 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.
