SHANGHAI, June 15, 2022

SHANGHAI, June 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Dingdong (Cayman) Limited ("Dingdong" or the "Company") /zigman2/quotes/227698451/composite DDL -2.47% , the leading and fast-growing fresh grocery e-commerce company in China, with advanced supply chain capabilities, today announced its unaudited financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.

First Quarter 2022 Highlights:

  • GMV for the first quarter of 2022 increased by 36.0% year over year to RMB5,851.3 million (US$923.0 million) from RMB4,303.5 million in the same quarter of 2021.

  • Total revenue for the first quarter of 2022 increased by 43.2% year over year to RMB5,443.7 million (US$858.7 million) from RMB3,802.1 million in the same quarter of 2021.

  • Total number of orders for the first quarter of 2022 increased by 15.6% year over year to 80.6 million from 69.8 million in the same quarter of 2021.

Mr. Changlin Liang, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Dingdong, stated, "During the first quarter of 2022, we maintained solid growth momentum in revenue, order numbers and average order value, while our net loss margin further narrowed substantially. Our strategy of prioritizing product capabilities as our primary growth driver has proven successful, and we believe that Dingdong is on a solid path to profitability."

Ms. Le Yu, Chief Strategy Officer of Dingdong, stated, "Since we changed our strategy last August to 'efficiency first, with due consideration to scale', our non-GAAP net loss margin in the previous four quarters decreased sequentially from 37.2% to 31.9%, 18.9% and finally 7.8%. We expect our net loss margin to further narrow and bring us to profitability in the future."

First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Total revenues were RMB5,443.7 million (US$858.7 million), representing an increase of 43.2% from the same period of 2021, primarily driven by the robust growth in the Company's GMV with a higher conversion ratio from GMV to revenue.

  • Product Revenues were RMB5,375.1 million (US$847.9 million), an increase of 43.1% from RMB3,757.2 million in the same quarter of 2021, primarily driven by the increase in the number of orders and average order value.

  • Service Revenues were RMB68.6 million (US$10.8 million), an increase of 52.7% from RMB44.9 million in the same quarter of 2021, primarily driven by the increase in the number of customers subscribing to Dingdong's membership program.

Total operating costs and expenses were RMB5,892.3 million (US$929.5 million), an increase of 14.7% from RMB5,136.0 million in the same quarter of 2021, with a detailed breakdown as below.

  • Cost of Goods Sold was RMB3,879.3 million (US$611.9 million), an increase of 25.8% from RMB3,082.8 million in the same quarter of 2021, primarily driven by the increase in total revenue. Gross margin was 28.7%, which significantly improved from 18.9% in the same quarter of 2021.

  • Fulfillment expenses were RMB1,484.1 million (US$234.1 million) in consistent with the same quarter of 2021. Fulfillment expenses as a percentage of total revenue decreased from 39.0% to 27.3%, as we further improved our supply chain efficiency.

  • Sales and marketing expenses were RMB176.1 million (US$27.8 million), a decrease of 44.7% from RMB318.3 million in the same quarter of 2021, as product capabilities became our primary growth driver and we attracted customers more efficiently.

  • General and administrative expenses were RMB118.7 million (US$18.7 million), an increase of 25.9% from RMB94.3 million in the same quarter of 2021, mainly due to the increased business scale of the Company.

  • Product development expenses were RMB233.9 million (US$36.9 million), an increase of 49.5% from RMB156.5 million in the same quarter of 2021, mainly due to the increased investments in product development capability and technology.

Loss from operations was RMB448.6 million (US$70.8 million), compared with operating loss of RMB1,333.9 million in the same quarter of 2021.

Net loss was RMB477.4 million (US$75.3 million), compared with net loss of RMB1,384.7 million in the same quarter of 2021.

Non-GAAP net loss , which is a non-GAAP measure that excludes share-based compensation expenses, was RMB422.2 million (US$66.6 million), a significant improvement from non-GAAP net loss of RMB1,375.6 million in the same quarter of 2021. In addition, our non-GAAP net loss margin, which is our non-GAAP net loss as a percentage of revenues, narrowed to 7.8% from 36.2% in the same quarter of 2021.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP measures, such as non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss margin, non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders and non-GAAP net loss per share, basic and diluted, in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. The Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures help identify underlying trends in its business by excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses, which are non-cash charges and do not correlate to any operating activity trends. The Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information about the Company's results of operations, enhance the overall understanding of the Company's past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the Company's management in its financial and operational decision-making.

The non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and when assessing the Company's operating performance, cash flows or liquidity, investors should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for net loss, cash flows provided by operating activities or other consolidated statements of operations and cash flows data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company's definition of non-GAAP financial measures may differ from those of industry peers and may not be comparable with their non-GAAP financial measures.

The Company mitigates these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP performance measures, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company's performance.

For more information on the non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Unaudited Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" set forth at the end of this announcement.
