2023 First Half Financial Results

Network Business

Net revenues from the network business were RMB125.8 million (US$17.3 million), representing a 104.9% increase from net revenues of RMB61.4 million in the first half of 2022, mainly because the business recovery of medical solutions since the relief of restrictive policies during the COVID-19 outbreaks.

The gross loss margin of the hospital business for the first half of 2023 was 28.8%, compared to the gross loss margin of 116.8% for the same period last year. The improvement in gross loss margin of the hospital business was primarily because the increase in revenue generated from our hospital business outpaced the increase in corresponding costs along with the ramping up of our medical institutions and their business recovery from the impact of COVID-19 outbreaks.

Network Business

Gross profit from the network business was RMB8.3 million (US$1.1 million), compared to the gross profit of RMB8.1 million in the first half of 2022. The gross profit margin of the network business for the first half of 2023 was 6.6%, compared to the gross profit margin of 13.2% for the same period last year. The decrease in gross profit margin of the network business was primarily due to (1) the expiration of agreements with certain management and technical support customers and less ongoing software development projects for our software development services, which resulted in the decrease in our revenue generated from management and technical support, while we still incurred relatively stable fixed costs, and (2) the cooperation with new customers at the initial stage with higher cost.

In the same period of last year, general and administrative expenses were RMB130.5 million. The increase was mainly attributable to the increase in provisions for allowance for doubtful accounts of accounts receivable and other receivables included in prepayments and other current assets. General and administrative expenses as a percentage of net revenues was 52.8% in the first half of 2023, compared to 90.4% in the first half of 2022.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), Concord Medical uses certain non-GAAP measures. The Company presents certain of its financial information that is adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude the impact of share-based compensation expenses, such as non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP basic and diluted loss per share for Class A and Class B ordinary shares. The Company believes excluding share-based compensation expenses from its GAAP financial measures is useful for its management and investors to assess and analyze the Company's core operating results, as such expense is not directly attributable to the underlying performance of the Company's business operations and do not impact its current cash earnings. Concord Medical also believes these non-GAAP measures excluding share-based compensation expenses are important in helping investors to understand the Company's current financial performance and future prospects and to compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis. In addition, Concord Medical also presents the non-GAAP measure of adjusted EBITDA, which is defined in this announcement as net income/(loss) plus interest expenses, net, income tax expenses, depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation expenses and other adjustments. Other adjustments include foreign exchange gain/(loss), net, other (expense)/income, net, gain on disposal of equity method investment and gain on disposal of long-lived equipment. Furthermore, adjusted EBITDA eliminates the impact of items that the Company does not consider to be indicative of the performance of the network business and hospital business. The Company believes investors will similarly use adjusted EBITDA as one of the key metrics to evaluate its financial performance and to compare its current operating results with corresponding historical periods and with other companies in the healthcare services industry. The presentation of these additional measures should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results or as being comparable to results reported or forecasted by other companies. The non-GAAP measures have been reconciled to GAAP measures in the attached financial information.
