“Our second model, Li L9, a flagship smart SUV for families, has received positive feedback from our users since its launch on June 21, as evidenced by the especially strong number of non-refundable orders received for the vehicle. The great perception and vehicle control capabilities of our self-developed autonomous driving system, Li AD Max, the excellent drivability empowered by our flagship range extension system, and the all new entertainment experience featured in Li L9’s innovative, interactive space, have all garnered highly positive reviews from users in test drives.”

Driven by our strong vehicle deliveries, our revenues reached RMB8.73 billion for the second quarter, up 73.3% year over year. The power of our product, our execution consistency, and operational resilience enabled us to mitigate the cost inflation affecting the entire industry. As a result, our second quarter gross margin remained relatively solid at 21.5%, up 2.6 percentage points year over year, and our cash flow from operations reached RMB1.13 billion. In addition, with the ongoing at-the-market offering of up to US$2.0 billion of American depositary shares, we are further strengthening our capital base to support our robust growth trajectory going forward.”

Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2022

Revenues

  • Total revenues were RMB8.73 billion (US$1.30 billion) in the second quarter of 2022, representing an increase of 73.3% from RMB5.04 billion in the second quarter of 2021 and a decrease of 8.7% from RMB9.56 billion in the first quarter of 2022.

  • Vehicle sales were RMB8.48 billion (US$1.27 billion) in the second quarter of 2022, representing an increase of 73.0% from RMB4.90 billion in the second quarter of 2021 and a decrease of 8.9% from RMB9.31 billion in the first quarter of 2022. The increase in revenue from vehicle sales over the second quarter of 2021 was mainly attributable to the increase in vehicle deliveries in the second quarter of 2022. The decrease in revenue from vehicle sales over the first quarter of 2022 was mainly attributable to the decrease in vehicle deliveries, which was affected by supply shortage due to the COVID-19 resurgence in the second quarter of 2022.

  • Other sales and services were RMB249.0 million (US$37.2 million) in the second quarter of 2022, representing an increase of 83.6% from RMB135.7 million in the second quarter of 2021 and a decrease of 1.7% from RMB253.4 million in the first quarter of 2022. The increase in revenue from other sales and services over the second quarter of 2021 was mainly attributable to increased sales of charging stalls, accessories, and services in line with higher accumulated vehicle sales.

Cost of Sales and Gross Margin

  • Cost of sales was RMB6.85 billion (US$1.02 billion) in the second quarter of 2022, representing an increase of 67.7% from RMB4.09 billion in the second quarter of 2021 and a decrease of 7.4% from RMB7.40 billion in the first quarter of 2022. The increase in cost of sales over the second quarter of 2021 was mainly driven by the increase in vehicle deliveries in the second quarter of 2022. The decrease in cost of sales over the first quarter of 2022 was mainly due to the decrease in vehicle deliveries in the second quarter of 2022.

  • Gross profit was RMB1.88 billion (US$280.4 million) in the second quarter of 2022, representing an increase of 97.1% from RMB952.8 million in the second quarter of 2021 and a decrease of 13.2% from RMB2.16 billion in the first quarter of 2022.

  • Vehicle margin was 21.2% in the second quarter of 2022, compared with 18.7% in the second quarter of 2021 and 22.4% in the first quarter of 2022. The increase in vehicle margin over the second quarter of 2021 was primarily driven by a higher average selling price attributable to the increase of vehicle deliveries of 2021 Li ONE since its release in May 2021.

  • Gross margin was 21.5% in the second quarter of 2022, compared with 18.9% in the second quarter of 2021 and 22.6% in the first quarter of 2022.

The increase in research and development expenses over the second quarter of 2021 and the first quarter of 2022 was primarily driven by increased employee compensation as a result of our growing number of research and development staff as well as increased expenses associated with new models to be introduced in the future.

  • Selling, general and administrative expenses were RMB1.33 billion (US$197.8 million) in the second quarter of 2022, representing an increase of 58.6% from RMB835.3 million in the second quarter of 2021 and an increase of 10.2% from RMB1.20 billion in the first quarter of 2022. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses over the second quarter of 2021 and the first quarter of 2022 was primarily driven by increased employee compensation as a result of our growing number of staff, as well as increased rental expenses associated with the expansion of the Company’s sales network.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures, such as non-GAAP cost of sales, non-GAAP research and development expenses, non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP income/loss from operations, non-GAAP net income/loss, non-GAAP net income/loss attributable to ordinary shareholders, non-GAAP basic and diluted net earnings/loss per ADS attributable to ordinary shareholders and free cash flow, in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. By excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses, the Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures help identify underlying trends in its business and enhance the overall understanding of the Company’s past performance and future prospects. The Company also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures 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 presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP methods of accounting and reporting used by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and when assessing the Company’s operating performance, investors should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for net loss or other consolidated statements of comprehensive loss data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

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 press release.

1 All translations from Renminbi (“RMB”) to U.S. dollar (“US$”) are made at a rate of RMB6.6981 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate in effect on June 30, 2022 as set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board.

2 Vehicle margin is the margin of vehicle sales, which is calculated based on revenues and cost of sales derived from vehicle sales only.

3 The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures exclude share-based compensation expenses. See “Unaudited Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” set forth at the end of this press release.

4 Free cash flow represents operating cash flow less capital expenditures, which is considered a non-GAAP financial measure.

5 Except for vehicle margin and gross margin, where absolute changes instead of percentage changes are presented.

6 Each ADS represents two Class A ordinary shares.

7 Non-GAAP basic net earnings/loss per share attributable to ordinary shareholders is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income/loss attributable to ordinary shareholders by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the periods. Non-GAAP diluted net earnings/loss per share attributable to ordinary shareholders is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income/loss attributable to ordinary shareholders by the weighted average number of ordinary shares, dilutive potential ordinary shares outstanding during the periods, including the dilutive effects of convertible senior notes as determined under the if-converted method and the dilutive effect of share-based awards as determined under the treasury stock method.
