Spaces and managed areas under contract include those in operation, under construction, and in preparation for construction.

Dr. Daqing Mao, Founder of Ucommune Group, commented, "Despite the various challenges faced by our industry in 2020, we limited the impact of these challenges on our operations. At the end of 2019, we decided to transition our business towards an asset-light model, and the rapid spread of the pandemic since that time has only accelerated our business transformation. During the first three quarters of 2020, we proactively closed office spaces that negatively impacted our cash flows and re-allocated our resources to business segments capable of accelerating our progress to profitability. Consequently, our workspace membership services revenues declined by only 18% year over year, while our EBITDA loss narrowed by more than 35% during the nine months period. Meanwhile, many of our corporate clients faced economic uncertainties and thus chose to reduce their advertising budgets, which negatively affected our marketing and branding services revenues. Nevertheless, as China continues to embark on its economic recovery, we are now seeing businesses gradually return to the old norm of working in offices, and our workspace occupancy rate and unit space revenue should improve accordingly. As a publicly traded company, we plan to improve our business through innovation, diversify our revenue streams, manage our expenditures, and generate quality returns for our shareholders over the long run. We have witnessed early success from our internally developed SAAS management platform for office buildings and industrial parks. Under this platform, services such as lease contract management, CRM promotion management, IOT intelligent device management, member operation management and asset management have enhanced the value of properties managed by Ucommune Group."

Mr. Cheong Kwok Mun, Chief Financial Officer of Ucommune Group, added, "Our strategic transformation towards an asset-light business model has helped us mitigate the negative impact from COVID-19, as evidenced by our less-than-expected revenue decline and faster-than-expected margin improvement. As we redirect more of our resources towards managing our workspace profitability and prudently controlling our expenses, we are confident that we are well on our way towards profitability and positive cash flow in the coming years.  Looking ahead, we are confident that our asset-light business model, market leadership in agile office space management, and capital markets access should pave the way towards a sustainable, measured, and profitable growth trajectory."

First Nine Months of 2020 Unaudited Financial Results

Total net revenues were RMB598.5 million (US$88.1 million) in the first nine months of 2020, representing a decrease of 32% from RMB874.6 million in the first nine months of 2019. Revenues from the asset light-model were RMB26.3 million (US$3.9 million) in the first nine months of 2020, representing an increase of 79% from RMB14.7 million in the first nine months of 2019.

  • Workspace membership services revenues were RMB346.2 million (US$51.0 million) in the first nine months of 2020, representing a decrease of 18% from RMB419.6 million in the first nine months of 2019. This decrease was mainly due to the decreased number of spaces in operation and the contraction of the Company's co-working space services, primarily caused by the outbreak of COVID-19 in the first nine months of 2020. Nevertheless, as a result of China's early success in containing the COVID-19 epidemic and the Company's improved operating efficiency, the Company has achieved significant transformational improvements since the third quarter of 2020, particularly in terms of occupancy rates and unit space revenue.
  • Marketing and branding services revenues were RMB207.4 million (US$30.5 million) in the first nine months of 2020, representing a decrease of 49% from RMB403.5 million in the first nine months of 2019, mainly due to decreased demand for advertising and marketing services in the first nine months of 2020.
  • Other services revenues were RMB45.0 million (US$6.6 million) in the first nine months of 2020, representing a decrease of 13% from RMB51.5 million in the first nine months of 2019, primarily due to the decrease in net revenue generated from the Company's interior design and construction services, resulting from the suspension of design and construction services caused by COVID-19.

Total costs of revenues were RMB682.8 million (US$100.6 million) in the first nine months of 2020, representing a decrease of 33% from RMB1,017.4 million in the first nine months of 2019. Costs of revenues from the asset light-model were RMB17.6 million (US$2.6 million) in the first nine months of 2020, representing an increase of 83% from RMB9.6 million in the first nine months of 2019.

  • Costs of workspace membership were RMB446.5 million (US$65.8 million ) in the first nine months of 2020, representing a decrease of 26% from RMB605.2 million in the first nine months of 2019, mainly due to decreased operational costs related to leases as well as decreased costs for property services and staff.
  • Costs of marketing and branding services were RMB189.1 million (US$27.8 million) in the first nine months of 2020, representing a decrease of 48% from RMB364.4 million in the first nine months of 2019, mainly due to decreased advertising costs, which was in line with the decrease in advertising revenue.
  • Costs of other services were RMB47.2 million (US$7.0 million) in the first nine months of 2020, representing a decrease of 1% from RMB47.7 million in the first nine months of 2019, mainly due to decreased staff costs.

General and administrative expenses were RMB87.2 million (US$12.8 million) in the first nine months of 2020, representing a decrease of 32% from RMB128.8 million in the first nine months of 2019, mainly as a result of decreased staff costs as Ucommune Group optimized its staff structure and reduced its general and administrative personnel to increase operational efficiency, and lower professional service fees.

Sales and marketing expenses were RMB22.9 million (US$3.4 million) in the first nine months of 2020, representing a decrease of 53% from RMB48.3 million in the first nine months of 2019, mainly as the result of the reduction in staff costs as well as promotion-related cost control measures, which were in line with the Company's reduced spaces due to the negative impact of COVID-19.

Impairment loss on long-lived assets was RMB33.5 million (US$4.9 million ) in the first nine months of 2020, representing a decrease of 27% from RMB46.1 million in the first nine months of 2019, primarily due to lower impairment of those spaces where the carrying value is not expected to be fully recoverable. 

Pre-opening expenses were nil in the first nine months of 2020, representing a decrease of 100% from RMB14.1 million in the first nine months of 2019, mainly as the result of the Company's temporary slowdown in co-working space expansion.

Loss from operations was RMB227.9 million (US$33.6 million) in the first nine months of 2020, representing a decrease of 59% from RMB559.3 million in the first nine months of 2019.

Other expenses, net were RMB84.2 million (US$12.4 million) in the first nine months of 2020, representing an increase of 311% from RMB20.5 million in the first nine months of 2019, mainly due to loss resulting from the Company's disposal of spaces.

Net loss was RMB358.8 million (US$52.8 million) in the first nine months of 2020, representing a decrease of 37% from RMB570.7 million in the first nine months of 2019.

Basic and diluted net loss per share were both RMB2.61 (US$0.39) in the first nine months of 2020, representing a decrease of 55% from RMB5.84 in the first nine months of 2019, mainly as the result of lower net loss and an increase in weighted average shares outstanding.

Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash were RMB112.4 million (US$16.6 million) as of September 30, 2020, representing a decrease of 43% from RMB196.3 million as of December 31, 2019, primarily due to the repayment of loans.

Net cash used in operating activities was RMB2.3 million (US$0.4 million), representing a decrease of 99% from RMB231.6 million in the first nine months of 2019, mainly due to decreased cash used for leased facilities as a result of the Company's temporary slowdown in co-working space expansion. 

Business Outlook

For the full year of 2020, the Company expects net revenues to be in the range of RMB850 million to RMB870 million. The forecast reflects the Company's current and preliminary views on the market and its operational conditions, which are subject to change.
