Second Quarter 2021 Results

COE reported second-quarter 2021 results on 28th September 2021. The company reported that the second quarter of 2021 had net revenues of RMB579.8 million (US$89.8 million), 17.5 percent more from RMB493.5 million the previous year. A rise in the number of active students was largely responsible for the increase, which was somewhat offset by a fall in average revenue per active student.

Moreover, the second quarter of 2021 had a gross margin of 72.7 percent, compared to 70.9 percent in the same period the previous year. The gain was mostly due to a drop in cost per lesson, which was somewhat offset by a fall in income per lesson. The cost of revenues in the second quarter of 2021 was RMB158.1 million (US$24.5 million), 10.2%  more from RMB143.6 million the previous quarter.

The majority of the rise was attributable to an increase in total service fees given to instructors, owing to an increase in the number of paid classes. Furthermore, sales and marketing costs totaled RMB315.8 million (US$48.9 million). Lastly, non-GAAP sales and marketing costs for the second quarter of 2021 were RMB313.4 million (US$48.5 million) excluding share-based compensation charges, up 32.0 percent from RMB237.4 million in the same quarter previous year.

Increased salespeople costs, as a result of a rise in the number of sales and marketing professionals, as well as higher marketing and branding expenses, accounted for the majority of the increase.
