Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Total net revenues in the fourth quarter of 2023 decreased by 22.9% to RMB1,296.0 million (US$182.5 million), compared with RMB1,681.1 million in the same period of 2022.

Livestreaming revenues in the fourth quarter of 2023 decreased by 36.1% to RMB1,020.8 million (US$143.8 million) from RMB1,596.7 million in the same period of 2022. The decrease was primarily attributable to the soft macroeconomic environment and reduced revenue-generating promotions during the quarter, leading to a decrease in the number of quarterly average paying users.

Advertising and other revenues in the fourth quarter of 2023 increased by 226.5% to RMB275.2 million (US$38.8 million) from RMB84.3 million in the same period of 2022. The increase was primarily driven by other revenues generated through new innovative business.

Cost of revenues in the fourth quarter of 2023 was RMB1,169.7 million (US$164.8 million), a decrease of 21.8% compared with RMB1,495.0 million in the same period of 2022.

Revenue sharing fees and content costs in the fourth quarter of 2023 decreased by 30.3% to RMB885.3 million (US$124.7 million) from RMB1,271.1 million in the same period of 2022. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in sharing fees aligned with decreased livestreaming revenues, as well as a decline in content costs resulting from improved cost management in self-produced content and streamer payments. The decrease was partially offset by an increase in copyright costs due to the acquisition of the LOL World Championship tournament.

Bandwidth costs in the fourth quarter of 2023 decreased by 27.4% to RMB100.5 million (US$14.2 million) from RMB138.4 million in the same period of 2022. The decline was primarily due to a year-over-year decrease in peak bandwidth usage. 

Gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2023 was RMB126.2 million (US$17.8 million), compared with RMB186.1 million in the same period of 2022. The decrease in gross profit was mainly due to a decrease in livestreaming revenues. Gross margin in the fourth quarter of 2023 was 9.7%, compared with 11.1% in the same period of 2022.

Sales and marketing expenses in the fourth quarter of 2023 decreased by 32.2% to RMB84.0 million (US$11.8 million) from RMB123.9 million in the same period of 2022. This was mainly attributable to decreases in user acquisition marketing expenses and staff-related expenses. 

Research and development expenses in the fourth quarter of 2023 decreased by 26.7% to RMB59.1 million (US$8.3 million) from RMB80.6 million in the same period of 2022. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in staff-related expenses.

General and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 2023 increased by 45.0% to RMB80.0 million (US$11.3 million) from RMB55.2 million in the same period of 2022. The increase was due to higher salary expenses associated with management position adjustments, increased expense related to our organizational streamlining initiatives, as well as an increase in the provisions for assets.

Other operating loss, net in the fourth quarter of 2023 was RMB9.6 million (US$1.4 million), compared with other operating income of RMB17.6 million in the same period of 2022.

Loss from operations in the fourth quarter of 2023 was RMB120.4 million (US$17.0 million), compared with RMB56.0 million in the same period of 2022.

Adjusted operating loss, which added back impairment loss of goodwill and intangible assets, was RMB86.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared with RMB56.0 million in the same period of 2022.

Net loss in the fourth quarter of 2023 was RMB62.2 million (US$8.8 million), compared with net income of RMB41.8 million in the same period of 2022.

Adjusted net loss, which excludes share-based compensation expenses, the share of income (loss) in equity method investments, gain on disposal of investment, impairment loss of investments and impairment loss of goodwill and intangible assets, was RMB5.0 million (US$0.7 million) in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared with RMB4.3 million in the same period of 2022.

Basic and diluted net loss per ADS[4] in the fourth quarter of 2023 were both RMB0.19 (US$0.03). Adjusted basic and diluted net loss per ADS in the fourth quarter of 2023 were both RMB0.02(US$0.00).

Full Year 2023 Financial Results

Total net revenues for the full year of 2023 were RMB5,530.4 million (US$778.9 million), compared with RMB7,108.2 million in the same period of 2022. The decrease was primarily driven by the year-over-year decrease in livestreaming revenues, which was partially offset by the increase in advertising and other revenues.

Gross profit for the full year of 2023 was RMB684.0 million (US$96.3 million), compared with RMB990.1 million in the same period of 2022.

Loss from operations for the full year of 2023 was RMB164.0 million (US$23.1 million), compared with RMB198.9 million in the same period of 2022.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted operating income (loss) is calculated as operating income (loss) adjusted for share-based compensation expenses. Adjusted net income (loss) is calculated as net income (loss) adjusted for share-based compensation expenses, share of income (loss) in equity method investments, gain on disposal of investment, impairment loss of investments, and impairment loss of goodwill and intangible assets. Adjusted net income (loss) attributable to DouYu is calculated as net income (loss) attributable to DouYu adjusted for share-based compensation expenses, share of income (loss) in equity method investments, gain on disposal of investment, impairment loss of investments, and impairment loss of goodwill and intangible assets. Adjusted basic and diluted net income per ordinary share is non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shareholders divided by weighted average number of ordinary shares used in the calculation of non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ordinary share. The Company adjusted the impact of (i) share-based compensation expenses, (ii) share of income (loss) in equity method investments, (iii) gain on disposal of investment, (iv) impairment loss of investments, (v) impairment loss of goodwill and intangible assets to understand and evaluate the Company’s core operating performance. The non-GAAP financial measures are presented to enhance investors’ overall understanding of the Company’s financial performance and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measures to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. As non-GAAP financial measures have material limitations as analytical metrics and may not be 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 non-GAAP financial measures as a substitute for, or superior to, such metrics in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned “Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Results” near the end of this release.
