    Balance Sheet & Cashflows

    As of December 31, 2020, the Company's cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investments totaled RMB229.6 million (US$35.2 million), compared with RMB327.2 million as of September 30, 2020 and RMB552.6 million as of December 31, 2019. 

    Net cash used in operating activities were RMB83.3 million (US$12.8 million) and RMB63.9 million for the three months period ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, primarily due to a decrease in gross billings.

    The Company's liquidity to meet its future working capital is based on its ability to enhance user engagement and retention by offering higher quality and diversified courses while optimizing traffic acquisition strategy to efficiently control and reduce user related costs. The Company will further preserve liquidity and manage cash flows by reducing various discretionary expenditure including labor costs and other operating expenses. The Company's liquidity is also based on its ability to obtain capital financing from equity or debt investors. Currently, the Company believes that it has sufficient cash to fund operations for at least the next 12 months with the implementation of the abovementioned measures.

    As of December 31, 2020, the Company's deferred revenue and long-term deferred revenue totaled RMB746.2 million (US$114.4 million), compared with RMB823.4 million as of September 30, 2020 and RMB696.0 million as of December 31, 2019.

    Director Re-election

    Mr. Tiak Koon Loh was re-elected to serve another two-year term as an independent director of the Company, effective immediately.

    Outlook

    For the first quarter of 2021, the Company currently expects:

    • Net revenues to be between RMB180.0 million to RMB200.0 million, which would represent a decrease of approximately 21.2% to 12.4% from RMB228.3 million for the same quarter last year;

    This forecast reflects the Company's current and preliminary view on the current business situation and market conditions, which is subject to change.

    Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

    The Company uses adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss, each a non-GAAP financial measure, in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes.

    The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss help identify underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain expenses that the Company includes in loss from operations and net loss. The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss provide useful information about its results of operations, enhance the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the management of the Company in its financial and operational decision-making.

    Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss should not be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to loss from operations, net loss or any other measure of performance or as an indicator of the Company's operating performance. Investors are encouraged to review the historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures to our data. The Company encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
