Second Quarter 2022 Financial and Operational Highlights Total net revenues in the second quarter of 2022 were RMB1,833.2 million (US$273.7 million), compared with RMB2,336.8 million in the same period of 2021. Gross profit in the second quarter of 2022 was RMB309.0 million (US$46.1 million), compared with RMB306.5 million in the same period of 2021. Net loss in the second quarter of 2022 was RMB38.8 million (US$5.8 million), compared with RMB181.7 million in the same period of 2021. Adjusted net income[1] in the second quarter of 2022 was RMB23.5 million (US$3.5 million), compared with adjusted net loss of RMB145.1 million in the same period of 2021. Average mobile MAUs[2] in the second quarter of 2022 were 55.7 million, compared with 60.7 million in the same period of 2021. Quarterly average paying user[3] count in the second quarter of 2022 was 6.6 million, compared with 7.2 million in the same period of 2021. Mr. Shaojie Chen, Chief Executive Officer of DouYu, commented, "During the second quarter, we maintained our focus on enriching our platform's content ecosystem and increased our investment and innovation in self-produced content. At the same time, we optimized our cost control mechanisms and carried out structural adjustments to enhance the quality of our revenue streams. We achieved substantial progress in this quarter, as demonstrated by our stable average mobile MAUs of 55.7 million and our improved financial performance, as our adjusted net income[1] reached RMB23.5 million. Going forward, we will remain committed to executing our business strategy in developing our game-centric comprehensive content platform by leveraging our deeper understanding of the preferences and characteristics of different user categories. Furthermore, we will continue to enrich our innovative tailor-made content in livestreaming, videos, graphics, and interactive communities. We will maintain our leading position in the traditional livestreaming industry by augmenting and developing our game-centric ecosystem and exploring new growth drivers to achieve sustainable and healthy growth." Mr. Hao Cao, Vice President of DouYu, commented, "Our total revenue in the second quarter reached RMB1.83 billion and gross profit was RMB309.0 million, representing a gross margin of 16.9%. We also achieved adjusted net income[1] of RMB23.5 million. During this quarter, while we further invested into new business initiatives and self-produced content, we continued to optimize our operational efficiency and successfully implemented additional cost control measures. Our attention to operating efficiency has delivered tangible results with improved returns for each game, generating a sequential improvement of gross margin and a turnaround in our adjusted net profit in this quarter. As of the end of the second quarter, we have cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, short-term and long-term bank deposits of RMB6,685 million. These abundant cash reserves will provide us with ample support to stabilize our core business operations as we navigate through the challenging macro environment. Looking ahead, we remain focused on enhancing our monetization capabilities and developing our operating model to improve operating efficiency as we strive to deliver long-term value to our shareholders." Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results Total net revenues in the second quarter of 2022 decreased by 21.6% to RMB1,833.2 million (US$273.7million), compared with RMB2,336.8 million in the same period of 2021. Livestreaming revenues in the second quarter of 2022 decreased by 18.8% to RMB1,768.3 million (US$264.0 million) from RMB2,178.1 million in the same period of 2021. The decrease was due to the ongoing implementation of prudent operating strategies which primarily included the Company's adjustments to certain interactive features and related operations to promote the long-term development of its platform. Advertising and other revenues in the second quarter of 2022 were RMB64.9 million (US$9.7 million), compared with RMB158.7 million in the same period of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to the continued exploration of new commercialization models by using a portion of advertising traffic that could have been directly monetized, as well as the soft demand for advertisements coupled with the resurgence of COVID-19 in China. Cost of revenues in the second quarter of 2022 was RMB1,524.2 million (US$227.6million), a decrease of 24.9% compared with RMB2,030.2 million in the same period of 2021. Revenue sharing fees and content costs in the second quarter of 2022 decreased by 27.2% to RMB1,314.7 million (US$196.3 million) from RMB1,806.8 million in the same period of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to decreased revenue sharing fees which outpaced the decrease in livestreaming revenues as a result of our effective implementation of prudent and ROI-focused operating strategies, as well as a significant decrease in copyright costs. Bandwidth costs in the second quarter of 2022 decreased by 11.2% to RMB143.7million (US$21.5 million) from RMB161.8 million in the same period of 2021. The decrease was mainly due to less peak bandwidth usage for fewer purchased eSports tournaments, as well as lower per unit bandwidth costs as a result of improved procurement efficiency. Gross profit in the second quarter of 2022 was RMB309.0 million (US$46.1 million), compared with RMB306.5 million in the same period of 2021. Gross margin in the second quarter of 2022 improved to 16.9% from 13.1% in the same period of 2021. The increase in gross margin was primarily due to the decreases in both revenue sharing fees and copyright costs as a percentage of total net revenues. Sales and marketing expenses in the second quarter of 2022 decreased 43.2% to RMB167.5 million (US$25.0 million) from RMB295.0 million in the same period of 2021. The decrease was mainly attributable to the significant decrease in marketing expenses for user acquisition and decreased personnel-related expenses. Research and development expenses in the second quarter of 2022 decreased 17.2% to RMB101.9 million (US$15.2million) from RMB123.0 million in the same period of 2021. The decrease was primarily attributable to the decrease in personnel-related expenses. General and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2022 decreased 11.7% to RMB90.7 million (US$13.5million) from RMB102.6 million in the same period of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to the decreased professional service fees. Other operating income, net in the second quarter of 2022 was RMB20.4 million (US$3.0 million), compared with other operating income of RMB16.7 million in the same period of 2021. Loss from operations in the second quarter of 2022 was RMB30.6 million (US$4.6 million), compared with RMB197.4 million in the same period of 2021. Adjusted operating income in the second quarter of 2022, which adds back share-based compensation expenses, was RMB0.3 million (US$0.0 million), compared with adjusted operating loss of RMB165.1 million in the same period of 2021. Net loss in the second quarter of 2022 was RMB38.8 million (US$5.8 million), compared with RMB181.7 million in the same period of 2021. Adjusted net income in the second quarter of 2022, which excludes share-based compensation expenses, share of loss in equity method investments, and impairment loss of investments, was RMB23.5 million (US$3.5million), compared with adjusted net loss of RMB145.1 million in the same period of 2021.
