MOGU Announces Unaudited Financial Results For the Six Months Ended March 31, 2023 and Fiscal Year 2023


HANGZHOU, China–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MOGU Inc. (NYSE: MOGU) (“MOGU” or the “Company”), a KOL-driven online fashion and lifestyle destination in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the six months ended March 31, 2023 and fiscal year 2023.

Mr. Fan Yiming, Chief Executive Officer of MOGU, commented, “Fiscal Year 2023 has been an extremely challenging year. The competitive environment of online shopping continued to intensify and several surges in COVID-19 cases in China resulted in supply chain and logistics disruptions.

The Gross Merchandise Value (“GMV1”) and revenue of MOGU for the second half of fiscal year 2023 decreased by 38.0% and 30.2%, to RMB3,241 million and RMB117.2 million period-over-period, respectively.The declining GMV was driven by weakening demand in the fashion & accessories category, which was partially offset by accelerating growth for healthcare and food.

Consumer behavior has shifted during the Covid-19 pandemic. As many customers temporarily adopted a more conservative consumption attitude, they tend to exercise more prudence on discretionary spending like fashion and accessories. Meanwhile, people pay more attention to their health and general well-being, which in turn leads to more interest and willingness to consume healthcare related products. In response to this trend, we have proactively adjusted our product offerings and expanded our product portfolio with a variety of healthcare products, groceries, household supplies and foods. Our goal is to offer our customers a wider variety of products while providing a more enjoyable shopping experience.”

“During the second half of fiscal year of 2023, our total revenues decreased by 30.2%, as compared with the same period of fiscal year 2022, to RMB117.2 million. We continued to take a holistic approach to improve our financial performance. The adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) and loss from operations were negative RMB6.8 million and RMB139.4 million, compared with negative RMB16.3 million and RMB240.3 million, respectively, for the same period of fiscal year 2022. We will also continue to explore new business opportunities to diversify our revenue structure,” added Ms. Qi Feng, Financial Controller of MOGU.

  • Technology service revenues for the six months ended March 31,2023 decreased by 13.8% to RMB30.8 million (US$4.5 million) from RMB35.7 million in the same period of fiscal year 2022, primarily attributable to the decrease of software services revenue.
  • Other revenues for the six months ended March 31, 2023 decreased by 55.3% to RMB3.2 million (US$0.5 million) from RMB7.1 million in the same period of fiscal year 2022, primarily due to the decrease of promotion services revenue provided to financial institutions under the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cost of revenues for the six months ended March 31, 2023 decreased by 27.2% to RMB54.2 million (US$7.9 million) from RMB74.5 million in the same period of fiscal year 2022, which was primarily due to a decrease in payroll, IT-related expenses and payment handling and outsourcing costs, in line with the overall reduction in revenue.

Sales and marketing expenses for the six months ended March 31, 2023 decreased by 37.0% to RMB35.1 million (US$5.1 million) from RMB55.6 million in the same period of fiscal year 2022, primarily due to optimized spending on branding and user acquisition activities, in line with the overall reduction in revenue.

Research and development expenses for the six months ended March 31, 2023 decreased by 56.8% to RMB16.1 million (US$2.4 million) from RMB37.4 million in the same period of fiscal year 2022, primarily due to a decrease in payroll costs.

General and administrative expenses for the six months ended March 31, 2023 decreased by 17.2% to RMB30.7 million (US$4.5 million) from RMB37.1 million in the same period of fiscal year 2022, primarily due to a decrease in professional service fees and payroll costs.

Impairment of goodwill and intangible assets for the six months ended March 31, 2023 increased by 73.2% to RMB84.7 million (US$12.3 million) from RMB48.9 million in the same period of fiscal year 2022, primarily due to the Company’s recognition of a full impairment charge of RMB 63.5 million against its remaining goodwill balance and impairments totaling RMB21.2 million for intangible assets which had been recorded in connection with the acquisition of Ruisha Technology. The recorded impairments resulted from weaker-than-expected operating results which reflect an increasingly competitive business environment and the related limited future economic benefit expected to be generated from these intangible assets.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses non­GAAP measures, such as Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income/loss as supplemental measures to review and assess operating performance. The presentation of these non­GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net loss before interest income, interest expense, (gain)/loss from investments, net, income tax benefits, share of results of equity investees, goodwill impairment, share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets, and depreciation of property and equipment. The Company defines Adjusted net loss as net loss excluding (gain)/loss from investments, net, goodwill impairment, share-based compensation expenses, and adjustments for tax effects. The Company excluded “amortization of intangible assets” as a non-recurring item in the presentation of adjusted net loss in its Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results for the six months ended March 31, 2023 and fiscal year 2023. As a result, the Company made the corresponding change to the prior period comparative metrics to conform with the new definition. See “Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non­GAAP Results” at the end of this press release.

The Company presents these non­GAAP financial measures because they are used by management to evaluate operating performance and formulate business plans. The Company believes that the non­GAAP financial measures help identify underlying trends in its business by excluding certain expenses, gain/loss and other items that are not expected to result in future cash payments or that are non­recurring in nature or may not be indicative of the Company’s core operating results and business outlook. The Company also believes that the non­GAAP financial measures could provide further information about the Company’s results of operations, enhance the overall understanding of the Company’s past performance and future prospects.

The non­GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non­GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. The Company’s non­GAAP financial measures do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect the Company’s operations and do not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. Further, these non­GAAP measures may differ from the non­GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited. The Company compensates for these limitations by reconciling the non­GAAP financial measures to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating performance. The Company encourages you to review the Company’s financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

For more information on the non­GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned “Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non­GAAP Results” set forth at the end of this press release.
