Phoenix New Media Reports Third Quarter 2023 Unaudited Financial Results

Live Conference Call to be Held at 8:30 PM U.S. Eastern Time on November 14, 2023

BEIJING, China, November 15, 2023 — Phoenix New Media Limited (NYSE: FENG) (“Phoenix New Media”, “ifeng” or the “Company”), a leading new media company in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023.

Mr. Yusheng Sun, CEO of Phoenix New Media, stated, “Entering the second half of the year, we find ourselves navigating a macro environment filled with uncertainties. We remain committed to improving our content and product quality, enhancing our media influence and brand value. We are also optimizing our business lines to accelerate innovation and upgrade our content marketing products. Going forward, we will proactively adapt our decision-making processes and innovation strategies to quickly respond to the ever-evolving market.”

 

Third quarter 2023 Financial Results

 

REVENUES

Total revenues in the third quarter of 2023 decreased by 21.1% to RMB153.6 million (US$21.1 million) from RMB194.8 million in the same period of 2022, primarily due to the year-over-year decline in both the Company’s net advertising revenues and paid services revenues.

 

Net advertising revenues in the third quarter of 2023 decreased 22.1% to RMB134.3 million (US$18.4 million) from RMB172.4 million in the same period of 2022, mainly due to the reduction in advertising spending of advertisers from certain industries and the intensified industry-wide competition.

Paid services revenues in the third quarter of 2023 decreased by 13.8% to RMB19.3 million (US$2.7 million) from RMB22.4 million in the same period of 2022. Paid services revenues comprise (i) revenues from paid contents, mainly including digital reading, audio books, and paid videos, and (ii) revenues from E-commerce and others. Revenues from paid contents in the third quarter of 2023 increased by 42.5% to RMB11.4 million (US$1.6 million) from RMB8.0 million in the same period of 2022, mainly due to the increase in the content spending of certain customers in the third quarter of 2023. Revenues from E-commerce and others in the third quarter of 2023 decreased by 45.1% to RMB7.9 million (US$1.1 million) from RMB14.4 million in the same period of 2022, mainly due to the decline in E-commerce revenues.

 

COST OF REVENUES AND GROSS PROFIT

Cost of revenues in the third quarter of 2023 decreased by 21.2% to RMB101.2 million (US$13.9 million) from RMB128.4 million in the same period of 2022, as a result of the Company’s strict cost control measures.

Gross profit in the third quarter of 2023 decreased by 21.1% to RMB52.4 million (US$7.2 million) from RMB66.4 million in the same period of 2022. Gross margin in the third quarter of 2023 was 34.1%, same as 34.1% in the same period of 2022.

To supplement the financial measures presented in accordance with the United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), the Company has presented certain non-GAAP financial measures in this press release, which excluded the impact of certain reconciling items as stated in the “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section below. The related reconciliations to GAAP financial measures are presented in the accompanying “Unaudited Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Results of Operation Measures to the Nearest Comparable GAAP Measures.”

Total operating expenses in the third quarter of 2023 decreased by 11.7% to RMB90.9 million (US$12.6 million) from RMB102.9 million in the same period of 2022, primarily attributable to the decrease in staff costs and other operating expenses as a result of the Company’s strict cost control measures.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with the United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), Phoenix New Media Limited uses non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP income or loss from operations, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income or loss attributable to Phoenix New Media Limited, non-GAAP net margin and non-GAAP net income or loss per diluted ADS, each of which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Non-GAAP gross profit is gross profit excluding share-based compensation. Non-GAAP gross margin is non-GAAP gross profit divided by total revenues. Non-GAAP income or loss from operations is income or loss from operations excluding share-based compensation. Non-GAAP operating margin is non-GAAP income or loss from operations divided by total revenues. Non-GAAP net income or loss attributable to Phoenix New Media Limited is net income or loss attributable to Phoenix New Media Limited excluding share-based compensation, income or loss from equity investments, net of impairment, fair value changes in investments, net, income tax benefit related to the gain on disposal of available-for-sale debt investments and impairment of available-for-sale debt investment. Non-GAAP net margin is non-GAAP net income or loss attributable to Phoenix New Media Limited divided by total revenues. Non-GAAP net income or loss per diluted ADS is non-GAAP net income or loss attributable to Phoenix New Media Limited divided by weighted average number of diluted ADSs. The Company believes that separate analysis and exclusion of the aforementioned non-GAAP to GAAP reconciling items add clarity to the constituent parts of its performance. The Company reviews these non-GAAP financial measures together with the related GAAP financial measures to obtain a better understanding of its operating performance. It uses these non-GAAP financial measures for planning, forecasting and measuring results against the forecast. The Company believes that using these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate its business allows both management and investors to assess the Company’s performance against its competitors and ultimately monitor its capacity to generate returns for investors. The Company also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance without the effect of items like share-based compensation, income or loss from equity method investments, net of impairment, and fair value changes in investments, net, which have been and will continue to be significant recurring items, and without the effect of income tax benefit related to the gain on disposal of available-for-sale debt investments and impairment of available-for-sale debt investments, which have been significant and one-time items. However, the use of these non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not include all items that impact the Company’s gross profit, income or loss from operations and net income or loss attributable to Phoenix New Media Limited for the period. In addition, because these non-GAAP financial measures are not calculated in the same manner by all companies, they may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider these non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as an alternative to, the financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
