Business Highlights

Baozun e-Commerce, or “BEC”

BEC includes our China e-commerce businesses, such as brands’ store operations, customer services and value-added services in logistics and supply chain management, IT and digital marketing.  During the quarter, revenue from sportswear, and beauty and cosmetics delivered double digit growth.

Omni-channel expansion remains a key theme for our brand partners. Gross Merchandise Volume (GMV)[7] generated from non-TMALL marketplaces and channels accounted for approximately 34.1% of total GMV during the quarter, compared with 24.4% for the same period of 2022. By the end of the second quarter, approximately 46.1% of our brand partners engaged with us for store operations of at least two channels, compared with 40.2% a year ago.

[7] GMV includes value added tax and excludes (i) shipping charges, (ii) surcharges and other taxes, (iii) value of the goods that are returned and (iv) deposits for purchases that have not been settled.

Baozun Brand Management or “BBM”

BBM engages in holistic brand management, including strategy and tactic positioning, branding and marketing, retail and e-commerce operations, supply chain and logistics and technology empowerment. We aim to leverage our portfolio of technologies to forge longer and deeper relationships with brands.

In the second quarter of 2023, BBM continued to focus on transforming Gap Shanghai – from a discount-driven approach to one that focuses on building consumer love for our brand and products. During the quarter, we implemented our transition plans and successfully improved average unit retail and gross margin for Gap Shanghai. Currently, BBM mainly comprises product sales revenue of Gap Shanghai, and product sales for BBM in the second quarter of 2023 totaled RMB324.2 million. Gross profit margin of product sales for BBM in the second quarter of 2023 was 51.9%.  

Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Total net revenues were RMB2,320.2 million (US$320.0 million), an increase of 9.3% from RMB2,122.0 million in the same quarter of last year. The increase in total net revenues was mainly due to the incremental revenue contribution from BBM, a new line of business the Company launched in the first quarter of 2023.

Total product sales revenue was RMB930.3 million (US$128.3 million), compared with RMB693.9 million in the same quarter of last year, of which,

  • Product sales revenue of E-Commerce was RMB606.1 million (US$83.6 million), a decrease of 12.7% from RMB693.9 million in the same quarter of last year. The decrease was primarily attributable to the weak performance in the appliance and electronics categories, as well as the Company’s optimization of its product distribution model, especially in the category of electronics.

  • Product sales revenue of Brand Management was RMB324.2 million (US$44.7 million), which mainly comprised retail revenue from Gap Shanghai business, including both offline store sales and online sales.

Services revenue was RMB1,389.9 million (US$191.7 million), a decrease of 2.7% from RMB1,428.1 million in the same quarter of last year. The decrease was primarily due to a revenue reduction of RMB45.3 million from warehousing and fulfillment due to the disposal of a loss-making subsidiary during the third quarter of 2022. Excluding the impact of disposal, services revenue increased 0.5% year over year.

[10] Key categories refer to the categories that accounted for no less than 10% of services revenue during the periods indicated. 

[11] The inter-segment eliminations mainly consist of revenues from store operation services provided by E-Commerce to Gap, a brand under Brand Management.

Total operating expenses were RMB2,356.6 million (US$325.0 million), compared with RMB2,145.4 million in the same quarter of last year. The increase in operating expense is mainly attributing to the acquisition of Gap Shanghai. Besides operating expense from GAP Shanghai, the remaining operating expenses decreased by RMB151.7 million, representing a 7.1% decrease compared with the same quarter of last year.

  • Cost of products was RMB675.1 million (US$93.1 million), compared with RMB602.2 million in the same quarter of last year. The increase was primarily due to the incremental cost of product of RMB155.9 million related to Gap Shanghai, a subsidiary the Company acquired in the first quarter of 2023.
  • Fulfillment expenses were RMB658.7 million (US$90.8million), compared with RMB725.0 million in the same quarter of last year. The decrease was primarily due to a reduction of RMB62.8 million in freight expenses resulting from the Company’s divesture of a subsidiary of its warehouse and supply chain businesses in the third quarter of 2022 and additional savings in customer services expenses resulting from the Company’s expanding use of regional service centers.
  • Sales and marketing expenses were RMB706.4 million (US$97.4 million), compared with RMB668.3 million in the same quarter of last year. The increase was mainly due to the incremental sales and marketing expenses of RMB73.1 million related to Gap Shanghai, a subsidiary the Company acquired in the first quarter of 2023.
  • Technology and content expenses were RMB129.1 million (US$17.8 million), compared with RMB112.2 million in the same quarter of last year. The increase was mainly due to the Company’s ongoing investment in technological innovation and productization, partially offset by the Company’s cost control initiatives and efficiency improvements.
  • General and administrative expenses were RMB249.5 million (US$34.4 million), compared with RMB91.7 million in the same quarter of last year. The increase was primarily due to an incremental expense of RMB117.7 million related to Brand Management, including the expenses related to Gap Shanghai, a subsidiary the Company acquired in the first quarter of 2023, as well as strategic investments expenses in Creative Content to Commerce business unit, brand management and overseas expansion, disposal of a warehouse and supply chain businesses subsidiary.

Loss from operations was RMB36.4 million (US$5.0 million), compared with RMB23.4 million in the same quarter of last year. Operating margin was negative 1.6%, compared with negative 1.1% in the same quarter of last year.

Non-GAAP income from operations was RMB0.7 million (US$0.1 million), compared with non-GAAP income from operations RMB47.3 million in the same quarter of last year. The decrease was mainly due to the loss generated from Gap Shanghai, a subsidiary the Company acquired in the first quarter of 2023, which has been significantly narrowed on a comparable basis, offset by an improvement in profitability in BEC businesses. Non-GAAP operating margin was 0.03%, compared with 2.2% in the same quarter of last year.

Adjusted operating profits of E-Commerce was RMB60.8 million (US$8.4 million), an increase of RMB13.5 million compared with RMB47.3 million in the same quarter of last year. Adjusted operating losses of Brand Management was RMB60.1 million (US$8.3 million).

Unrealized investment loss was RMB9.3 million (US$1.3 million), compared with RMB12.7 million unrealized investment loss in the same quarter of last year. The unrealized investment loss of this quarter was mainly related to the decrease in the trading price of iClick Interactive Asia Group Limited, or iClick Interactive, a public company listed on the Nasdaq Global Market that the Company invested in January 2021, and the decrease in the trading price of Lanvin Group, a company successfully listed on the New York Stock Exchange in December 2022 that the Company invested in June 2021.

Net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun was RMB20.0 million (US$2.8 million), compared with RMB77.8 million in the same quarter of last year.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company also uses certain non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating its business. For example, the Company uses non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net margin, non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun and non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun per ADS, as supplemental measures to review and assess its financial and operating performance. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The Company defines non-GAAP income (loss) from operations as income (loss) from operations excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisition and acquisition-related expenses. The Company defines non-GAAP operating margin as non-GAAP income (loss) from operations as a percentage of total net revenues. The Company defines non-GAAP net income (loss) as net income (loss) excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisition, acquisition-related expenses, fair value gain on derivative liabilities, gain on acquisition of subsidiaries, and unrealized investment loss. The Company defines non-GAAP net margin as non-GAAP net income (loss) as a percentage of total net revenues. The Company defines non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun as net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisition, acquisition-related expenses, fair value gain on derivative liabilities, gain on acquisition of subsidiaries, and unrealized investment loss. The Company defines non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun per ADS as non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun divided by weighted average number of shares used in calculating net income (loss) per ordinary share multiplied by three.

The Company presents the non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by the Company’s management to evaluate the Company’s financial and operating performance and formulate business plans. Non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun and Non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun per ADS reflect the Company’s ongoing business operations in a manner that allows more meaningful period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes that the use of the non-GAAP financial measures facilitates investors to understand and evaluate the Company’s current operating performance and future prospects in the same manner as management does, if they so choose. The Company also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gain/loss and other items that are not expected to result in future cash payments or that are non-recurring in nature or may not be indicative of the Company’s core operating results and business outlook.

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 non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun, and non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun per ADS is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect the Company’s operations. Further, the non-GAAP measures may differ from the non-GAAP measures used by other companies, including peer companies, potentially limiting the comparability of their financial results to the Company’s. In light of the foregoing limitations, the non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net margin, non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun and non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun per ADS for the period should not be considered in isolation from or as an alternative to income (loss) from operations, operating margin, net income (loss), net margin, net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun and net income (loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders of Baozun per ADS, or other financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The Company compensates for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measures, which should be considered when evaluating the Company’s performance. The company encourages you to review the company’s financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure. For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the section of the accompanying tables titled, “Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results.”
