Smart Share Global Limited Announces First Quarter 2022


Number of POIs1 reached 861 thousand as of the end of the first quarter of 2022
Newly registered users2 were 12.0 million during the first quarter of 2022

SHANGHAI, China, June 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Smart Share Global Limited (“Energy Monster” or the “Company”), a consumer tech company providing mobile device charging service, today announced its unaudited financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.

HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2022

  • As of March 31, 2022, the Company’s services were available in 861 thousand POIs, compared with 845 thousand as of December 31, 2021.
  • As of March 31, 2022, approximately 38.9% of POIs were operated through our network partner model, compared with 38.0% as of December 31, 2021.
  • As of March 31, 2022, the Company’s available-for-use power banks3 were 5.7 million.
  • As of March 31, 2022, cumulative registered users reached 298.9 million, with 12.0 million newly registered users acquired during the quarter.

“The first quarter of 2022 has been a challenging quarter for Energy Monster in light of the continuous outbreak of COVID in cities such as Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Tianjin, Hangzhou and Changchun. These outbreaks continue to adversely affect the foot traffic to offline POIs in regions of the outbreak and surrounding areas. The large-scale outbreaks starting in Shanghai and Beijing starting in March have more significantly impacted our operation in the second quarter of 2022, but we are already seeing a healthy recovery trend starting in June,” said Mars Guangyuan Cai, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “While the impact of COVID outbreaks have presented a challenging environment, we continue to stay long-term oriented and focused on laying the ground work for expanding our market leading position in China’s mobile device charging service industry.”

“We continue to expand the coverage of our service network through a combination of our direct operation and network partner models. Our POI coverage and our user base continues to increase despite the headwinds brought on by COVID outbreaks,” said Peifeng Xu, Chief Operating Officer. “We also launched a series of innovative initiatives that leverage the advantages of direct operation and network partner models. Initiatives such as the opening of all regions to both models and leveraging our direct operation team to attract new network partners allow us to extract higher levels of synergy between our two core models.”

“Efficiency has always been a crucial part of Energy Monster’s operating philosophy and a key differentiator that set us apart from our peers within the industry. Although the efficiency of our direct operation and network partner team remains market-leading, we continue to identify ways to increase their efficiency through measures such as back-end tool improvement and model innovation. We also continue to make strides in improving our asset efficiency through our power bank optimization program and the launch of our newer generation of cabinets this year,” said Maria Yi Xin, Chief Financial Officer. “As a result of such initiatives, our operating efficiency continues to improve as business development personnels on average are able to cover more POIs and our asset efficiency continues to increase as we reduce the average asset for each POI.”

Sales and marketing expenses decreased by 0.3% to RMB659.7 million (US$104.1 million) for the first quarter of 2022 from RMB661.7 million in the same period last year. The decrease was primarily due to the decrease in entry fees and incentive fees paid to location partners.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURE
In evaluating its business, the Company considers and uses non-GAAP adjusted net income/(loss) in reviewing and assessing its operating performance. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company presents this non-GAAP financial measure because it is used by management to evaluate operating performance and formulate business plans. The Company believes that this non-GAAP financial measure helps identify underlying trends in its business, provide further information about its results of operations, and enhance the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects.

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

The Company defines non-GAAP adjusted net income/(loss) as net income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation expenses. For more information on the non-GAAP financial measure, please see the table captioned “Unaudited Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” set forth at the end of this press release.
