Unless otherwise noted, the translation of RMB into US$ has been made at RMB6.8972 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate in effect on December 30, 2022 as set forth in the H.10 Statistical Release of The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

Adjusted EBITDA

The Company uses adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) is defined as net loss excluding interest income, interest expense, income tax expenses, depreciation of property and equipment, amortization of intangible assets, and share-based compensation expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) should not be considered in isolation or construed as alternatives to net loss or any other measures of performance or as indicators of the Company’s operating performance. Investors are encouraged to compare the Company’s historical adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) to the most directly comparable GAAP measure, net loss. Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

Growth at Constant Currency

The Company provides revenue growth rates at constant currency, which exclude the impact of foreign currency translation, in order to facilitate a comparison of its current revenue performance to its past revenue performance. To calculate revenue growth rates in constant currency, the Company converts actual net sales from local currency to U.S. dollars using constant foreign currency exchange rates in the current and prior period.

Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow (non-GAAP) is used by the Company to evaluate its cash generation ability. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities after adjusting for working capital movements and capital expenditures. Management believe that free cash flow is a useful metric for investors to assess the Company’s financial performance because it measures the amount of cash generated after taking into account the investments made in the business. This measure enables management to assess the Company’s ability to fund future growth initiatives, make strategic acquisitions, and return value to shareholders.

The Company presents these non-GAAP financial measure because they are used by management to evaluate the Company’s operating performance and formulate business plans. The Company believes that these non-GAAP measure helps identify underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be distorted. The Company also believes that the use of the non-GAAP measure facilitates investors’ assessment of its operating performance. Such non-GAAP measures should be considered only as supplemental to, and not as superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. The management of the Company does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Further, other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures to the Company’s data. The Company encourages investors and others to review the financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure. Non-GAAP financial measures are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by management about which expense and income are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. Additionally, to the extent that forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures are provided, they are presented on a non-GAAP basis without reconciliations of such forward-looking non-GAAP measures due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation.
