BEIJING, March 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Luckin Coffee Inc. (“Luckin Coffee” or the “Company”) (OTC: LKNCY) today announced its unaudited financial results for the three months ended December 31, 2021 and fiscal year 2021.

COMPANY STATEMENT

“We are very pleased to report strong overall performance in the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2021,” said Dr. Jinyi Guo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Luckin Coffee. “We opened more than 350 net new stores during the quarter and are one of the largest coffee networks in China by the number of outlets, with more than 6,000 stores as of December 31, 2021. Building on our positive momentum, the team has delivered strong same store sales growth for our self-operated stores resulting from increased number of transacting customers, increased items sold and higher average selling prices. For our partnership stores, we witnessed a substantial increase in revenue contribution as we expanded into lower-tier cities across China. This partnership model has proved highly complementary to our self-operated store strategy.”

Dr. Guo said, “Overall, we are pleased with the efficiency of our store operations and increased benefits of scale and operating leverage. These developments resulted in a material improvement in our self-operated store level margins and overall profitability profile during the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2021. These impressive results have further strengthened our market leadership position and are a strong testament to our unique value proposition, innovative product portfolio and premier brand recognition.”

Dr. Guo added, “The Company’s recent completion of the provisional liquidation plays a major role in advancing our growth strategy as it allows us to operate from a position of greater financial strength and unlock our full potential. As we enter 2022, we are energized and cognizant of predicted macroeconomic headwinds, including the recent outbreak of COVID in China. We remain dedicated to providing the innovative products and services that our customers have come to rely upon and driving improved returns on capital and long-term value for our shareholders.”

The increase in total operating expenses was predominantly the result of the Company’s business expansion. Meanwhile, operating expenses as a percentage of net revenues decreased to 105.0% in the fourth quarter of 2021 from 136.3% in the same quarter of 2020, mainly driven by increased economies of scale and the Company’s technology-driven operations but was offset by a material increase in losses and expenses related to Fabricated Transactions and Restructuring in the fourth quarter, primarily related to legal and financial advisory services in relation to the successful completion of the provisional liquidation.

  • Cost of materials were RMB979.0 million (US$153.6 million) in the fourth quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 56.9% from RMB623.9 million in the same quarter of 2020, generally in line with the increase in the number of products sold and increase in sales of materials to partnership stores.
  • Store rental and other operating costs were RMB633.4 million (US$99.4 million) in the fourth quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 48.0% from RMB427.9 million in the same quarter of 2020, mainly due to the increase in accrued expenses in relation to labor costs in the fourth quarter of 2021, the increase in store rental due to increased number of stores and the increase in utilities and other store operating costs as a result of the increased number of items sold in the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to the same period last year.
  • Depreciation and amortization expenses were RMB100.4 million (US$15.8 million) in the fourth quarter of 2021, representing a decrease of 18.0% from RMB122.5 million in the same quarter of 2020, mainly due to the decrease in amortization of leasehold improvements for the stores whose leasehold improvements had been fully amortized before the fourth quarter of 2021.
  • Delivery expenses were RMB233.5 million (US$36.6 million) in the fourth quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 83.8% from RMB127.0 million in the same quarter of 2020, mainly due to the increase in the number of delivery orders. We separated delivery expenses out of sales and marketing expenses from the fourth quarter of 2021 to optimize our disclosure and better reflect the nature of our expenses. This reclassification is retrospectively applied.
  • Sales and marketing expenses were RMB98.7 million (US$15.5 million) in the fourth quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 54.2% from RMB64.0 million in the same quarter of 2020, mainly due to the increase in advertising expenses and commission fees to third-party delivery platforms in line with the increase in the number of delivery orders. We separated delivery expenses out of sales and marketing expenses from the fourth quarter of 2021 to optimize our disclosure and better reflect the nature of our expenses. This reclassification is retrospectively applied.
  • General and administrative expenses were RMB389.0 million (US$61.1 million) in the fourth quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 25.5% from RMB309.9 million in the same quarter of 2020. The increase in general and administrative expenses was mainly driven by (i) the increased share-based compensation following the adoption of the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan as announced on January 25, 2021, (ii) the increased payroll costs for headquarter staff, (iii) the increased expenditures for office supplies, and (iv) the increased professional service fees.
  • Store preopening and other expenses were RMB7.7 million (US$1.2 million) in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to RMB0.5 million in the same quarter of 2020, mainly due to more stores opened in the fourth quarter of 2021.
  • Impairment loss of long-lived assets were RMB2.4 million (US$0.4 million) in the fourth quarter of 2021, which was provided for a batch of old equipment that was not adapted to the production of new products as a result of product iteration, compared to RMB69.3 million in the same quarter of 2020.
  • Losses and expenses related to Fabricated Transactions and Restructuring were RMB109.4 million (US$17.2 million) in the fourth quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 21.8% from RMB89.8 million in the same quarter of 2020, which consisted primarily of (i) professional and legal fees for U.S. securities litigations negotiations and claims, (ii) professional and legal fees for the restructuring of convertible senior notes, (iii) professional fees and expenses reimbursed for the Joint Provisional Liquidators (“JPLs”), and (iv) other advisory service fees. The Company expects losses and expenses related to Fabricated Transactions and Restructuring to go down in the second quarter of 2022 following the successful completion of the provisional liquidation during the first quarter of 2022.
  • Store level operating profit margin - self-operated stores was 20.9% in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to 8.7% in the same quarter of 2020, primarily due to the increase of the average selling price of the products and number of products sold, as well as benefits of economies of scale. Store level operating margin – self-operated stores, however, decreased sequentially from 25.2% in the third quarter of 2021, largely due to a sequential decrease of higher margin iced coffee and non-coffee products which are predominantly sold in hotter months and the impact of higher accrued payroll expenses for our store employees in the fourth quarter.  

Operating loss was RMB120.8 million (US$19.0 million) in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to an operating loss of RMB488.9 million in the same quarter of 2020.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses adjusted operating income/loss and adjusted net income/loss, each a non-GAAP financial measure, in reviewing and assessing the Company’s operating performance. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures 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 these non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by the Company’s management to evaluate operating performance and formulate business plans. The Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures help identify underlying trends in the Company’s business, provide further information about the Company’s results of operations and enhance the overall understanding of the Company’s past performance and future prospects.

The non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. The Company’s non-GAAP 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. Furthermore, these non-GAAP measures may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited. The Company compensates for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company’s performance. The Company encourages investors and others to review the Company’s financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

The Company defines non-GAAP operating loss as operating loss excluding recurring item of share-based compensation expenses and non-recurring item of impairment loss of long-lived assets upon its occurrence, non-GAAP net income/(loss) as net (loss)/income excluding recurring item of share-based compensation expenses, non-recurring items inclusive of impairment loss of long-lived assets, provision/reversal for SEC settlement, provision for equity litigants settlement and impairment of trust investments upon their occurrence and non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to the Company’s ordinary shareholders as net (loss)/income attributable to the Company’s ordinary shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses, non-recurring items inclusive of impairment loss of long-lived assets, provision/reversal for SEC settlement, provision for equity litigants settlement and impairment of trust investments upon their occurrence.

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

* Differences in the definition of Non-GAAP indicators between this earnings announcement and 2020 Form 20-F are contributable to the items that occurred beyond the reporting periods of this earnings announcement, including accretion to redemption value of convertible redeemable preferred shares, change in the fair value of warrant liability. In the fourth quarter of 2021, impairment loss of long-lived assets was due to normal operation, rather than unexpected events such as store closure caused by the COVID-19, therefore, removed from Non-GAAP adjustment items.
