Additionally, the launch of the Mr. P AI Tutor, powered by our proprietary large language model Ziyue, has been well received by our users. In 2023, Youdao's fundamentals strengthened, with key financial indicators improving on a year-over-year basis," said Dr. Feng Zhou, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Youdao.

Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2023 were RMB1.5 billion (US$208.5 million), slightly increased compared with the same period of 2022.

Net revenues from learning services were RMB784.0 million (US$110.4 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023, representing a 2.8% decrease from RMB806.3 million for the same period of 2022.

Net revenues from smart devices were RMB222.4 million (US$31.3 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023, representing a 45.3% decrease from RMB407.0 million for the same period of 2022, primarily due to our continuous efforts to streamline marketing channels with low return on investment for intelligent learning products in the fourth quarter of 2023.

Net revenues from online marketing services were RMB474.1 million (US$66.8 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023, representing a 96.9% increase from RMB240.8 million for the same period of 2022. The year-over-year increase in revenues from online marketing services was mainly attributable to the increased demand for performance-based advertisements through third parties' internet properties.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2023 was RMB738.8 million (US$104.1 million), representing a 4.6% decrease from RMB774.7 million for the same period of 2022. Gross margin decreased to 49.9% for the fourth quarter of 2023 from 53.3% for the same period of 2022.

Gross margin for learning services was 63.6% for the fourth quarter of 2023, largely flat as compared with 64.1% for the same period of 2022.

Gross margin for smart devices decreased to 38.3% for the fourth quarter of 2023 from 46.2% for the same period of 2022, which was mainly attributable to a lower revenue base of smart devices.

Gross margin for online marketing services increased to 32.7% for the fourth quarter of 2023, from 29.2% for the same period of 2022. The increase was mainly attributable to improved gross margin profile of performance-based advertisements through third parties' internet properties compared with the same period of last year.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2023 were RMB662.5 million (US$93.3 million), compared with RMB750.0 million for the same period of last year.

Sales and marketing expenses for the fourth quarter of 2023 were RMB441.4 million (US$62.2 million), representing a decrease of 14.4% from RMB515.9 million for the same period of 2022. This decrease was attributable to the reduced marketing expenditures in learning services and smart devices in the fourth quarter of 2023.

Research and development expenses for the fourth quarter of 2023 were RMB168.1 million (US$23.7 million), representing a decrease of 6.3% from RMB179.5 million for the same period of 2022. The decrease was primarily due to the decreased headcount for research and development employees, which led to payroll-related cost savings in the fourth quarter of 2023.

General and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2023 were RMB53.0 million (US$7.5 million), representing a decrease of 2.9% from RMB54.6 million for the same period of 2022.

Income from Operations

As a result of the foregoing, income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2023 was RMB76.3 million (US$10.7 million), compared with RMB24.7 million for the same period of 2022. The margin of income from operations was 5.2%, compared with 1.7% for the same period of last year.

Others, Net

Others, net for the fourth quarter of 2023 were RMB2.6 million (US$0.4 million) net loss, compared with RMB3.8 million net gain for the same period of 2022. Others, net for the fourth quarter of 2023 mainly included an impairment loss of long-term investments of RMB10.0 million (US$1.4 million), partially offset by the gains from government grants. The gain for the same period of last year was mainly from government grants.

Net Income from Continuing Operations Attributable to Youdao's Ordinary Shareholders

Net income from continuing operations attributable to Youdao's ordinary shareholders for the fourth quarter of 2023 was RMB56.5 million (US$8.0 million), compared with RMB12.3 million for the same period of last year. Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations attributable to Youdao's ordinary shareholders for the fourth quarter of 2023 was RMB69.3 million (US$9.8 million), compared with RMB31.1 million for the same period of last year.

Basic and diluted net income from continuing operations per American depositary share ("ADS") attributable to ordinary shareholders for the fourth quarter of 2023 was RMB0.47 (US$0.07), compared with RMB0.10 for the same period of 2022. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net income from continuing operations per ADS attributable to ordinary shareholders was RMB0.58 (US$0.08), compared with RMB0.25 for the same period of 2022.

Other Information

For the fourth quarter of 2023, net cash provided by continuing operating activities was RMB160.6 million (US$22.6 million), capital expenditures totaled RMB5.9 million (US$0.8 million). Youdao's ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on management's ability to implement an effective business plan in future periods in light of the changing regulatory environment, generate operating cash flows and continue to be able to obtain outside sources of financing as necessary for Youdao's future development. In support of Youdao's future business, NetEase Group has agreed to provide financial support for Youdao's continuing operations. As of the date of this release, Youdao has received various financial support from the NetEase Group, including, among others, RMB878.0 million short-term loans, and US$94.0 million long-term loans with maturity dated March 31, 2027 drawn down under the US$300.0 million revolving loan facility.

Non-GAAP Measures

Youdao considers and uses non-GAAP financial measures, such as non-GAAP net income/(loss) from continuing operations attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders and non-GAAP basic and diluted net income/(loss) from continuing operations per ADS, as supplemental metrics in reviewing and assessing its operating performance and formulating its business plan. The presentation of 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 accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP").

Youdao defines non-GAAP net income/(loss) from continuing operations attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders as net income/(loss) from continuing operations attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses and impairment of long-term investments. Non-GAAP net income/(loss) from continuing operations attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders enables Youdao's management to assess its operating results without considering the impact of these items, which are non-cash charges in nature. Youdao believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors in understanding and evaluating the Company's current operating performance and prospects in the same manner as management does, if they so choose.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, which possibly do not reflect all items of expense that affect our operations. In addition, the non-GAAP financial measures Youdao uses may differ from the non-GAAP measures uses by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.

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

The accompanying table has more details on the reconciliation between our GAAP financial measures that are mostly directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures. Youdao encourages you to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
