Larry Xiangdong Chen, GSX's founder, Chairman and CEO, commented, "GSX had another great quarter with exponential growth, demonstrating our superior teaching quality and excellent customer experience. We are proud to see our net operating cash flow for the third quarter to reach approximately RMB287.8 million. We leverage speed, efficiency and effectiveness to gain insurmountable competitive advantage. We focus on achieving a steep but shorter learning curve. We make unremitting efforts to invest in all areas of content development and technology. We are fully committed to productivity improvements and take sustained massive action immediately. We will continue to invest strategically in our customer acquisition and R&D in 2019 and drive even greater engagement with our students and parents. We will continue to have our unwavering focus on the online live large-class tutoring to reap financial rewards."

Shannon Shen, CFO of GSX, added, "We saw third quarter net revenues surpassed the high end of our guidance and strongly beat the street consensus, rising 461.5% YoY to RMB557 million. Revenue from our core business, the K12 after school tutoring, grew even faster, by 525.5%. Gross billings, an important leading indicator that provides significant visibility on our next quarter's revenue, increased 419.5% YoY to RMB880 million. Thanks to the continuous upgrading of our corporate and organizational capabilities, as well as effective execution of our marketing strategy, we observed the remarkable growth in paid course enrollments. We also managed to post our sixth consecutive quarter of non-GAAP profitability, in a fiercely competitive landscape."

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses gross billings, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP (loss) income from operations and non-GAAP net (loss) income, each a non-GAAP financial measure, in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes.

The Company defines gross billings for a specific period as the total amount of cash received for the sale of course offerings in such period, net of the total amount of refunds in such period. The Company's management uses gross billings as a performance measurement because the Company generally bills its students for the entire course fee at the time of sale of its course offerings and recognizes revenue proportionally as the classes are delivered over a period typically ranging from 1 to 6 months. For some courses, the Company continues to provide students with 12 months to 36 months access to the pre-recorded audio-video courses after the online live courses are delivered. The Company believes that gross billings provides valuable insight into the sales of its course packages and the performance of its business. As gross billings has material limitations as an analytical metrics and may not be calculated in the same manner by all companies, it may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP (loss) income from operations and non-GAAP net (loss) income exclude share-based compensation expenses, and such adjustment has no impacts on income tax. GSX believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding share-based expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. GSX believes that both management and investors benefit from these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing its performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to GSX's historical performance.  A limitation of using non-GAAP measures is that these non-GAAP measures exclude share-based compensation charges that have been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in the Company's business.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this release.

The accompanying tables have more details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.

Exchange Rate

The Company's business is primarily conducted in China and the significant majority of revenues generated are denominated in Renminbi ("RMB"). This announcement contains currency conversions of RMB amounts into U.S. dollars ("USD") solely for the convenience of the reader. Unless otherwise noted, all translations from RMB to USD are made at a rate of RMB 7.1477 to USD1.00, the effective noon buying rate for September 30, 2019 as set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board.
