BEIJING, Sept. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — TuanChe Limited ("TuanChe," "Company," "we" or "our") (NASDAQ: TC), a leading omni-channel automotive marketplace in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Key Second Quarter 2020 Financial and Operating Metrics Compared with the Prior Year Period

The Company’s financial and operational results for the second quarter of 2020 have been materially and adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Net revenues decreased by 73.1% to RMB54.7 million (US$7.7 million) from RMB203.5 million.
  • Gross profit decreased by 70.1% to RMB43.0 million (US$6.1 million) from RMB144.0 million. Gross margin increased to 78.6% from 70.8%.
  • Quarterly number of organized auto shows across China decreased by 82.3% from 344 in 186 cities to 61 in 56 cities. Quarterly number of special promotion events decreased by 48.7% from 154 to 79.
  • Quarterly number of automobile sale transactions facilitated decreased by 82.2% to 19,656 from 110,444. Quarterly Gross Merchandise Volume of new automobiles sold decreased by 81.6% to RMB2.8 billion (US$0.4 billion) from RMB15.2 billion.
  • Sales operations covered 134 cities as of June 30, 2020, compared with 146 cities as of March 31, 2020 and 155 cities as of June 30, 2019.

First Half 2020 Financial and Operating Metrics Compared with the Prior Year Period

  • Net revenues decreased by 80.3% to RMB64.4 million (US$9.1 million) from RMB326.4 million.
  • Gross profit decreased by 79.1% to RMB48.7 million (US$6.9 million) from RMB232.9 million. Gross margin increased to 75.6% from 71.4%.
  • The number of auto shows organized during the first half of 2020 decreased by 87.2% to 67 in 60 cities from 522 auto shows in 203 cities across China. The number of special promotion events organized during the first half of 2020 decreased by 44.6% to 92 from 166.
  • The number of automobile sales transactions facilitated during the first half of 2020 decreased by 87.5% to 21,961 from 175,085, and the Gross Merchandise Volume of new automobiles sold during the first half of 2020 decreased by 86.9% to RMB3.1 billion (US$0.4 billion) from RMB23.6 billion.

Mr. Wei Wen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TuanChe, commented, "In the second quarter, we are pleased to report a 63.3% year-over-year reduction of net losses attributable to the Company’s shareholders primarily driven by the acceleration of our rigorous cost measures and online strategy, albeit a year-over-year decrease of 73.1% in net revenues and a year-over-year decrease of 70.1% in gross profit due to material COVID-19 related impact. Our offline auto shows and special promotion events have gradually resumed since May and are now mostly back to normal in some cities we operate. We will continue to assess and adjust the pace of resumption of our offline business and focus on generating higher ROIs. Our revenues from virtual dealership, online marketing services and others increased by 180.0% year-over-year, primarily driven by successful online sales events that were held during the second quarter and, most notably, the live streaming promotion events we conducted in collaboration with TMall Auto during the week of June 18th, 2020. Such encouraging results were propelled by our unique integration of touch points and channels for online customer acquisition and marketing with offline promotional activities, which not only creates a seamless and holistic shopping experience for consumers, but also helps auto OEMs and dealers effectively reach customers and achieve increased sales conversion rates. As live streaming promotion events become the central component for the acceleration of full digitalization of automotive marketing, we see ourselves increasingly well-positioned to capture the enormous opportunity associated with changes in the automotive retail industry."

Mr. Chenxi Yu, Deputy Chief Financial Officer of TuanChe, added, "While the COVID-19 pandemic was effectively contained in China, the Company continued to hold fewer auto shows and special promotion events during the second quarter of 2020 than usual, in accordance with all national and local regulatory guidelines on COVID-19 prevention and control and for the best interest of public health. This resulted in a 73.1% year-over-year decline in net revenues to RMB54.7 million in the second quarter. Amidst the COVID-19 and macroeconomic challenges, we remained focused on optimizing our cost structure, which resulted in a 66.8% year-over-year reduction in operating expenses, and significantly reduced our net losses both year-over-year and sequentially. We are closely monitoring the circumstances and will adjust our operation strategy accordingly, while keeping a disciplined cost structure in order to deliver positive returns for our shareholders in the long run."

Recent Business Developments

  • COVID-19 Impact

In order to fully support the government’s guidance on COVID-19 pandemic prevention and control and in the interest of public health, the Company held very few offline events in April 2020. Since the end of May 2020, the Company has gradually resumed offline operations in some cities, with the pace of recovery subject to the ongoing development of the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated government guidance. Recent development of the COVID-19 pandemic in China, such as the cases reported in Beijing in June and in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and Dalian city in the third quarter, continues to generate uncertainties over the Company’s business, results of operations, financial condition and cash flows. Furthermore, as the business operations of industry customers have also been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company continues to experience delays in collecting accounts receivables from these customers and recorded an increased bad debt expense due to liquidity issues of certain customers. See "Business Outlook" for the Company’s current and preliminary views on the impact of COVID-19 on the auto market and operational conditions for the third quarter. The Company also continues to closely monitor both the development of the pandemic and regulatory responses and restrictions as well as the impact on the Company’s business, results of operations, financial condition and cash flows. The Company will also continue to implement measures to adjust the pace of business operations and conserve resources and may resort to other costs cutting measures in response to cash flow management.

Net Revenues

Net revenues in the second quarter of 2020 decreased by 73.1% to RMB54.7 million (US$7.7 million) from RMB203.5 million in the prior year period, primarily due to a 82.3% year-over-year decrease of revenues generated from offline marketing services to RMB34.9 million (US$4.9 million) from RMB196.4 million in the prior year period, and partially offset by the strong growth of revenues generated from virtual dealerships, online marketing services and others.

Net revenues generated from virtual dealership, online marketing services and others increased by 180.0% to RMB19.9 million (US$2.8 million) in the second quarter of 2020 from RMB7.1 million in the prior year period, primarily due to our continuous expansion of online marketing services, including commencement of live streaming promotion events and revenues generated from our acquisition of Longye International Limited in January 2020.

  • General and administrative expenses in the first half of 2020 increased by 2.6% to RMB52.3 million (US$7.4 million) from RMB51.0 million in the prior year period, primarily due to the increases in allowance for doubtful accounts and amortization.
  • Research and development expenses in the first half of 2020 decreased by 2.8% to RMB16.9 million (US$2.4 million) from RMB17.4 million in the prior year period, primarily due to the Company’s cost control measures.

Business Outlook

For the third quarter of 2020, the Company expects net revenues to range from approximately RMB90.0 million to RMB95.0 million, representing a year-over-year approximate decrease of 33.6% to 29.9%. This is primarily attributable to the estimated declining number of offline events that is expected to be held in the third quarter of 2020 (including auto shows and special promotion events) due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This forecast reflects the Company’s current and preliminary views on the market and operational conditions as well as the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic, which are subject to change.

Unless otherwise noted, all translations from Renminbi to U.S. dollars, in this press release, were made at a rate of RMB7.0651 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate in effect on June 30, 2020 in the City of New York for cable transfers in Renminbi per U.S. dollar as certified for customs purposes by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. No representation is made that the Renminbi amounts could have been, or could be, converted, realized or settled into U.S. dollars at that rate on June 30, 2020, or at any other rate.

Safe Harbor Statement

This announcement contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and as defined in the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, the Company’s business plans and development, business outlook, as well as the length and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the Company’s business and industry, which can be identified by terminology such as "may," "will," "expect," "anticipate," "aim," "estimate," "intend," "plan," "believe," "potential," "continue," "is/are likely to" or other similar expressions. Such statements are based upon management’s current expectations and current market and operating conditions, and relate to events that involve known or unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, all of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond the Company’s control. Further information regarding these and other risks, uncertainties or factors is included in the Company’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required under law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company’s condensed consolidated quarterly financial information which are presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company also uses adjusted net income/(loss) attributable to the Company’s shareholders, adjusted net income/(loss) per ordinary share and adjusted EBITDA as additional non-GAAP financial measures. The Company presents these non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by the Company’s management to evaluate its operating performance. The Company also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating the Company’s consolidated results of operations in the same manner as its management and in comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of the Company’s peer companies.

The Company defines adjusted net income/(loss) as net income/(loss) excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses and impairment of investment. The Company defines adjusted net income/(loss) per ordinary share as adjusted net income/(loss) divided by the weighted average number of ordinary shares. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as net income/(loss) excluding the impact of depreciation and amortization, interest income/(expenses), net, share-based compensation expenses and impairment of investment. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating the Company’s operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures are adjusted for the impact of items that the Company does not consider indicative of the operational performance of the Company’s business, and should not be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to net income/(loss) or any other measure of performance or as an indicator of the Company’s operating performance.

In addition, 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. One of the key limitations of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect the Company’s operations. Interest income or expenses, depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation expenses and impairment of investment have been and may continue to be incurred in the Company’s business and are not reflected in the presentation of these non-GAAP measures. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures to the Company’s data. The Company encourages investors and others to review the Company’s financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure. Investors are encouraged to compare the historical non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

“BRI Clean the River” Program Encourages Environmental Sustainability and Community Economic Empowerment in the Kalisari River Region

gbafNews28

SEMARANG, Indonesia, Oct. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The condition on the edge of Kalisari River on Wonosari road, Randusari village, South Semarang Subdistrict, Semarang City, which was once shallow, full of garbage, is now neatly organized and clean. Thanks to the "BRI Clean the River" program by BRI Bank (BRI) (IDX: BBRI), the function and role of Kalisari River in Kampung Pelangi has been restored to support the environment and driving the community’s economy.

Central Java Governor, Ganjar Pranowo with President Director of Bank BRI, Sunarso visiting Kalisari River area on Sunday (25/10)
Central Java Governor, Ganjar Pranowo with President Director of Bank BRI, Sunarso visiting Kalisari River area on Sunday (25/10)

Currently, the presence of Kalisari River in Kampung Pelangi is slowly becoming a new local tourist attraction capable of driving the economy of the surrounding community. Not only the residents, but the people from other regions also come visiting the area.

Cleaning activities on Kalisari River are carried out through several activities including cleaning and structuring the river, educating the importance of healthy environment, empowering and managing waste, building facilities and infrastructure on the riverbank and empowering the community’s economy through the role of BRILink Agent.

In collaboration with the local government, BRI educates the resident around the river on how to create a healthy environment, namely by continuing to encourage changes in people’s perspective on the function and role of rivers in their lives and their future. A clean and orderly river flow does not only reduce the potential for flooding when it rains, but rivers can also have an economic impact and driving the community’s economy.

So far, the role of rivers has often been misunderstood only as water channels from upstream to downstream. Many people throw garbage into the river. Whereas the essence of a river is a hydrological cycle that needs to be preserved. Thus, in this program BRI collaborates with Bank Sampah Waras to further educate the public in managing household waste. It is necessary to select and sort out which waste is organic and which is inorganic, to use organic waste for fertilizers, agriculture and animal feed, to convert inorganic waste in order to provide added value and economic value to society through the recycling process.

In its management, the organic waste that has been sorted from each house will be collected by Bank Sampah Waras to be processed into organic fertilizer / compost using a garbage chopper from BRI. It takes 3 weeks to convert the waste into compost which then can be used by the residents around the area. These fertilizers are also traded commercially to third party with profits that will be managed by Bank Sampah Waras.

On top of that, inorganic waste collection (plastic bottles / cups, plastic bags, towel cloth, used clothes, etc.) that cannot be recycled will be sold to collectors with the help of the Bank Sampah Waras. Meanwhile, those that can still be reused will be processed into items that have a selling value, such as plastic flowerpots and plastic home decorations.

The facilities and infrastructure built along the river, such as playgrounds and open spaces, are now also being used by the community. By becoming a gathering place for residents, the area around the river has become a potential economic development for residents. To support banking services that are easily accessible to residents around the river, BRI through BRILink Agent provides banking transaction services such as cash deposits and withdrawals, payment of electricity, water bills, BPJS (Social Security Administrator), telephone, credit purchases, instalment payments, loan deposits and other transactions.

Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo revealed that the Provincial Government appreciates the program that has been carried out by BRI Bank to encourage public awareness on the importance of preserving and cleaning the rivers in the city. "We warmly welcome and thank BRI for organizing Kalisari River to be clean and beautiful like this. But most importantly, BRI has provided examples and education to the community to keep the environment clean, from waste education to structuring and building facilities for the community. Our next task is to preserve it," said Ganjar when he visited Kalisari River area with President Director of Bank BRI, Sunarso on Sunday (25/10).

"Through this cleaning program, we want to educate the importance of a healthy river environment. In fact, if the river is cleaned, organized and maintained, its existence can bring many benefits to the residents who live around it. This is in accordance with our commitment that the presence of BRI can provide and deliver value to the community. We will manage the discarded waste, but the sustainability of this program really depends on the behaviour of the community. Let’s preserve it together, "concluded Sunarso.

Gyroscope Therapeutics Announces First Patient Received Investigational Gene Therapy GT005 Via Orbit Subretinal Delivery System in Ongoing Phase I/II FOCUS Trial

gbafNews28

Gyroscope Therapeutics Limited, a clinical-stage retinal gene therapy company, today announced that the first surgery using its proprietary Orbit„¢ Subretinal Delivery System (Orbit SDS) to deliver the companys investigational gene therapy, GT005, to a patient with geographic atrophy (GA) secondary to dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD) has been conducted in the ongoing Phase I/II FOCUS trial. The surgery was conducted in the United States by Jeffrey Heier, M.D., at Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston.

Dry AMD is one of the leading causes of vision loss globally and gene therapies hold tremendous promise for this disease. Delivering gene therapy directly to the site of disease through a subretinal injection is a proven approach; however, the current method requires a vitrectomy. The Orbit SDS is an innovative delivery system that could address some of the challenges surgeons and patients may experience with a vitrectomy. I have been involved with the development of the Orbit SDS for several years, and I am excited to see its introduction into subretinal delivery of what we hope to be an important therapeutic intervention, said Dr. Heier, Co-President, Medical Director, Director of the Vitreoretinal Service, and Director of Retina Research at Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston.

In 2019, Gyroscope merged with Orbit Biomedical to create the only retinal gene therapy company that combines all elements of drug development, a manufacturing platform, and surgical delivery capabilities. Our vision is to develop gene therapy beyond rare disease and we believe our proprietary Orbit SDS has the potential to help us achieve that. We look forward to further evaluating the Orbit SDS in our GT005 clinical programme, said Khurem Farooq, Chief Executive Officer, Gyroscope.

About FOCUS

FOCUS [NCT03846193] is a Phase I/II open-label clinical trial that was initiated in January 2019. The trial is evaluating the safety and dose response of GT005 in people with GA secondary to dry AMD. Three doses of GT005 are being evaluated in FOCUS. In the initial dose-escalation phase of FOCUS, which is now complete, patients were treated using a subretinal injection involving vitrectomy and retinotomy. The trial has been expanded to include additional cohorts, including a dose-expansion cohort and two cohorts in which the Orbit SDS will be used to deliver GT005.

Gyroscope plans to enrol approximately 45 people who have a clinical diagnosis of GA secondary to dry AMD in FOCUS at sites in the United Kingdom and United States.

About Orbit SDS

The Orbit SDS delivers a controlled volume beneath the retina, with the aim of providing precise and consistent dosing. The subretinal space is accessed by advancing a flexible cannula through the suprachoroidal space (the space between the sclera and the choroid). A microneedle inside the cannula is then advanced to deliver a targeted dose beneath the retina. The microinjection procedure is designed to avoid damaging the structure of the eye by eliminating the need for both a vitrectomy (a procedure that involves removing the vitreous “ the gel-like substance that fills the eye) and a retinotomy (a hole in the retina).

The Orbit SDS is 510(k) cleared for microinjection into the subretinal space at the back of the eye using saline solution (BSS or BSS PLUS*).

About Dry AMD

Dry AMD is a leading cause of permanent vision loss in people over the age of 50, and is a devastating diagnosis. This gradual and permanent loss of central vision can severely impact a persons daily life as they lose the ability to drive, read and even see the faces of loved ones. There are currently no approved treatments for dry AMD.

Gyroscope estimates that nearly 3.5 million people in the United States and EU5 European countries have GA, and that more than 100,000 people with GA have certain Complement Factor I (CFI) mutations that correlate with low CFI levels in the blood and a higher risk of developing AMD.

About Gyroscope: Vision for Life

Gyroscope Therapeutics is a clinical-stage retinal gene therapy company developing gene therapy beyond rare disease to treat a leading cause of blindness, dry AMD. Our lead investigational gene therapy, GT005, is a one-time therapy delivered under the retina. GT005 is designed to restore balance to an overactive complement system by increasing production of the Complement Factor I protein. GT005 is currently being evaluated in a Phase I/II clinical trial called FOCUS and a Phase II clinical trial called EXPLORE.

Syncona Ltd, our lead investor, helped us create the only retinal gene therapy company to combine discovery, research, drug development, a manufacturing platform and surgical delivery capabilities. Headquartered in London with locations in Philadelphia and San Francisco, our mission is to preserve sight and fight the devastating impact of blindness.
