Notes:

(2) “MINISO stores” represent any of the offline stores operated under the “MINISO” brand name, including those directly operated by the Company, and those operated by third parties under the MINISO Retail Partner model and the distributor model.

(3) “TOP TOY stores” represent any of the offline stores operated under the “TOP TOY” brand name, including those directly operated by the Company, and those operated by third parties under the MINISO Retail Partner model.

Mr. Guofu Ye, Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer of MINISO, commented, “We kicked off fiscal year 2023 with an encouraging set of results headlined by strong margin performance. In spite of the short-term headwinds brought on by the pandemic in China, we remained focused on our long-term strategic goals: delivering on our globalization strategy, bolstering the strength of our product offerings and optimizing our store network. These efforts are yielding positive results, and we continued to see our overseas operations move further along the path of recovery. I am especially pleased to report that our margin profile continued to beat expectations, with adjusted net profit increasing by 127% year-on-year to RMB417 million in the September quarter, and adjusted net margin reaching its highest ever level at 15.1%.”

“On November 11, China’s National Health Commission released a new set of refined pandemic prevention and control policies which are more scientific and more precise. I believe that under the guidance of these new policies, the offline retail industry will see new opportunities for recovery and growth. We remain optimistic about our revenue and profit growth potential. Our positive outlook is based on our long-term confidence in China’s economic development, our steadfast commitment to our vision for the offline retail business, and our determination to achieve a truly global reach.” Mr. Ye continued.

Mr. Saiyin Zhang, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President of MINISO, commented, “Gross margin for the September quarter reached 35.7%, a record high for MINISO Group and an increase of more than 800 basis points from 27.4% in the same quarter of last year, thanks to our solid execution of MINISO’s brand upgrade, our strong bargaining power and the steady recovery of overseas markets.”

“Looking forward into the December quarter, we expect our overseas markets will continue to grow strongly. Meanwhile, our margin profile will improve on a year-on-year basis as we successfully execute our brand upgrade, see steady recovery in the overseas market, and break even on our directly-operated overseas business. Our financial strategy will remain disciplined in terms of budgeting, cost controls, and allocation of capital, as we focus on the consistent delivery of solid financial performances.” Mr. Zhang concluded.

Recent Developments 

Impact of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic continued to impact the Company’s operations and results in the quarter ended September 30, 2022, mainly in China. 

Pandemic prevention and control measures remained in effect across China throughout the quarter. During the peak summer sales season of July and August, when the pandemic situation was relatively stable, our GMV recovered to about 95% of the levels from the same period of last year. In September, pandemic outbreaks in major cities such as Shenzhen and Chengdu negatively impacted our GMV, which reached about 80% of the level from September of last year. During the quarter, an average of 2%, 5% and 7% of stores were unable to operate due to the pandemic in July, August and September, respectively. Excluding the affected stores, we estimate that average GMV per store from July to September were about 85%, 90% and 80% of the levels from the same periods last year, respectively. Going into the quarter ending December 31, 2022, the COVID situation remains uncertain, with regional outbreaks continuing to impact our operations. To cope with this uncertainty, the Company will rely on contingency planning to remain nimble and ready to pivot with changing market conditions. 

GMV of MINISO stores in overseas markets in the September quarter increased by 41% year over year, and have recovered to more than 95% of the level in the same quarter of 2019. With more and more overseas markets having lifted their pandemic control measures, the Company currently expects the sales recovery in overseas markets to continue.

Unaudited Financial Results for the First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2023 ended September 30, 2022

Revenue was RMB2,772.4 million (US$389.7 million), representing an increase of 4.5% year over year, primarily driven by a 47.6% year-over-year growth of revenue from overseas markets, partially offset by a 8.8% year-over-year decrease of revenue from China. 

Revenue from China was RMB1,852.3 million (US$260.4 million), compared to RMB2,030.8 million in the same period of 2021. The year-over-year decrease was (i) primarily driven by a decrease in revenue from the MINISO brand from RMB1,866.5 million to RMB1,700.4 million (US$239.0 million), as a result of the resurgence of COVID-19 in China in the September quarter, and (ii) partially offset by a year-over-year increase of 13.3% in revenue from the TOP TOY brand. For more information on the composition and year-over-year change of revenue, please refer to the “Unaudited additional information” in this press release.

Revenue from overseas markets was RMB920.2 million (US$129.4 million), accounting for 33.2% of our total revenue and representing an increase of 47.6% year-over-year. The increase was primarily due to a year-over-year increase of 9.7% in average store count and a year-over-year growth of 34.6% in average revenue per MINISO store in overseas markets. 

Cost of sales was RMB1,783.9 million (US$250.8 million), representing a decrease of 7.4% year over year, mainly attributable to the savings measures we adopted to reduce the cost of certain products. 

Gross profit was RMB988.6 million (US$139.0 million), representing an increase of 35.7% year over year. 

Gross margin was 35.7%, compared to 27.4% in the same period of 2021. The year-over-year increase was primarily attributable to (i) the increase in revenue contribution from international operations, which typically have higher gross margin than domestic operations, from 23.5% in the same period of 2021 to 33.2% in this quarter, (ii) higher gross margin contributed by newly launched products in relation to our execution of strategic brand upgrade of MINISO in China, and (iii) the savings measures we adopted to reduce the cost of certain products.

Other income was RMB6.4 million (US$0.9 million), compared to RMB16.1 million in the same period of 2021. 

Selling and distribution expenses were RMB381.3 million (US$53.6 million), representing an increase of 11.9% year over year. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, selling and distribution expenses were RMB372.6 million (US$52.4 million), representing an increase of 15.5% year over year. The year-over-year increase was primarily attributable to (i) increased rental and related expenses, (ii) increased personnel-related expenses, and (iii) increased licensing expenses in relation to our enlarged IP product offerings, partially offset by reduced promotion and advertising expenses due to our deferred marketing activities in China to tackle the resurgence of COVID-19.

General and administrative expenses were RMB167.6 million (US$23.6 million), representing a decrease of 20.7% year over year. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, general and administrative expenses were RMB163.2 million (US$22.9 million), representing a decrease of 18.4% year over year. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to decreased personnel-related expenses. 

Other net income was RMB64.0 million (US$9.0 million), compared to RMB33.6 million in the same period of 2021. Other net income mainly consists of net foreign exchange gain, investment income from wealth management products and others. The year-over-year increase was mainly attributable to a net foreign exchange gain of RMB52.3 million in this quarter, compared to RMB4.3 million in the same period of 2021, which was partially offset by a decrease in investment income from wealth management products as a result of reduced principal of such products. 

Operating profit was RMB509.5 million (US$71.6 million), representing an increase of 138.6% year over year. 

Profit for the period was RMB404.1 million (US$56.8 million), representing an increase of 161.5% year over year. 

Adjusted net profit(1), which represents profit for the period excluding equity-settled share-based payment expenses, was RMB417.4 million (US$58.7  million), representing an increase of 126.6% year over year. 

Adjusted net margin(1) was 15.1%, compared to 6.9% in the same period of 2021.

Basic and diluted earnings per American Depositary Share (“ADS”) were RMB1.32 (US$0.19) in this quarter, compared to basic and diluted earnings per ADS of RMB0.50 in the same period of 2021. Each ADS represents four of the Company’s ordinary shares.

Adjusted basic and diluted net earnings per ADS(1) were both RMB1.36 (US$0.19) in this quarter, compared to RMB0.60 in the same period of 2021.

Notes:

(1)     See the sections titled “Non-IFRS Financial Measures” and “Reconciliation of Non-IFRS Financial Measures” in this press release for more information.

As of September 30, 2022, the combined balance of the Company’s cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, term deposits, and other investments amounted to RMB6,007.2 million (US$844.5 million).

Exchange Rate

The U.S. dollar (US$) amounts disclosed in this press release, except for those transaction amounts that were actually settled in U.S. dollars, are presented solely for the convenience of the readers. The conversion of Renminbi (RMB) into US$ in this press release is based on the exchange rate set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System as of September 30, 2022, which was RMB7.1135 to US$1.0000. The percentages stated in this press release are calculated based on the RMB amounts.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

In evaluating the business, MINISO considers and uses adjusted net profit, adjusted net margin, adjusted basic and diluted net earnings per share and adjusted basic and diluted net earnings per ADS as supplemental measures to review and assess its operating performance. The presentation of these non-IFRS financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with IFRS. MINISO defines adjusted net profit as profit for the period excluding equity-settled share-based payment expenses. MINISO calculates adjusted net margin by dividing adjusted net profit by revenue for the same period. MINISO computes adjusted basic and diluted net earnings per ADS by dividing the adjusted net profit attributable to the equity shareholders of the Company by the number of ADSs represented by the number of ordinary shares used in the basic and diluted earnings per share calculation on an IFRS basis. MINISO computes adjusted basic and diluted net earnings per share in the same way it calculates adjusted basic and diluted net earnings per ADS, except that it uses the number of ordinary shares used in the basic and diluted earnings per share calculation on an IFRS basis as the denominator instead of the number of ADSs represented by these ordinary shares.

MINISO presents these non-IFRS financial measures because they are used by the management to evaluate its operating performance and formulate business plans. These non-IFRS financial measures enable the management to assess its operating results without considering the impacts of the aforementioned non-cash and other adjustment items that MINISO does not consider to be indicative of its operating performance in the future. Accordingly, MINISO believes that the use of these non-IFRS financial measures provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating its operating results in the same manner as the management and board of directors. 

These non-IFRS financial measures are not defined under IFRS and are not presented in accordance with IFRS. These non-IFRS financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. One of the key limitations of using these non-IFRS financial measures is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect MINISO’s operations. Further, these non-IFRS financial measures may differ from the non-IFRS information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited. 

These non-IFRS financial measures should not be considered in isolation or construed as alternatives to profit, net profit margin, basic and diluted earnings per share and basic and diluted earnings per ADS, as applicable, or any other measures of performance or as indicators of MINISO’s operating performance. Investors are encouraged to review MINISO’s historical non-IFRS financial measures in light of the most directly comparable IFRS measures, as shown below. The non-IFRS financial measures presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting the usefulness of such measures when analyzing MINISO’s data comparatively. MINISO encourages you to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure. 

For more information on the non-IFRS financial measures, please see the table captioned “Reconciliation of Non-IFRS Financial Measures” set forth at the end of this press release.
