21Vianet Group, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2017 Unaudited Financial Results

BEIJING, August 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 21Vianet Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: VNET) (“21Vianet” or the “Company”), a leading carrier-neutral internet data center services provider in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June  30, 2017. The Company will hold a conference call at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, August 22, 2017. Dial-in details are provided at the end of the release.

Mr. Steve Zhang, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, “Our business realignment continued to generate fruitful results in the second quarter of 2017. In particular, our core hosting and related services maintained its growth trajectory. To meet strong market demand, we will increase our data center capacity through a variety of channels, including building cabinets ourselves and entering into strategic joint ventures. This past quarter, we increased the total number of cabinets under management to 27,361. Our cooperation with Warburg Pincus remained on track, as we’ve almost completed transferring another one of the 4 high-quality data center assets into our initial joint venture. In our managed network service (MNS) business, we saw fierce competition and pricing pressure in the market, especially with the effect of public clouds on our CDN business and telecom operators on our Aipu business. To further optimize the network business, we have been actively implementing various cost control measures. Going forward, we will continue our business realignment. We will allocate more resources to our core hosting and related services business, seek to further improve our operating leverage, and gradually transform ourselves into an asset-light business. At the same time, we will continue to explore various strategic alternatives for our MNS business.”

Mr.  Terry Wang, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, further commented, “In the second quarter of 2017, our total net revenue declined slightly by 3.5% year-over-year to RMB878.7  million, but was still within the range of our guidance. Our core hosting and related services, which accounted for roughly 85% of total revenues, grew by 10.9% year-over-year. Moreover, because we prudently controlled our costs and reduced expenses, our gross profit increased by 8.7% year-over-year to RMB188.0  million, and our gross margin expanded to 21.4% in the second quarter from 19.0% in the prior year period. Our adjusted EBITDA increased to RMB108.6  million. In addition, we intensified our cash collection efforts and as a result, our accounts receivable declined year-over-year to RMB673.9  million as of June 30, 2017. We are pleased that net cash from operating activities improved to RMB68.9 million in the second quarter. These achievements all exemplified the effectiveness of our business realignment. Going forward, we will continue managing our cost structure efficiently while striving to revive our total revenue growth.”

Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

REVENUES: Net revenues were RMB878.7 million (US$129.6 million) in the second quarter of 2017 compared to RMB910.8  million in the comparative period in 2016. The increase in revenues from hosting and related services was offset by the decrease in revenues from MNS.

Net revenues for hosting and related services increased by 10.9% to RMB743.4 million (US$109.7 million) in the second quarter of 2017 compared to RMB670.5  million in the comparative period in 2016. The increase was primarily due to an increase in the Company’s IDC and VPN business.

Net revenues for MNS were RMB135.3 million (US$20.0 million) in the second quarter of 2017, compared to RMB240.4 million in the comparative period in 2016. The decrease was primarily due to intensifying competition and pricing pressure.

GROSS PROFIT: Gross profit increased by 8.7% to RMB188.0 million (US$27.7 million) in the second quarter of 2017 as compared to RMB172.9  million in the comparative period in 2016. Gross margin increased to 21.4% in the second quarter of 2017 from 19.0% in the comparative period in 2016. The increase was primarily due to the Company’s execution of its cost control strategies.


Adjusted gross profit, which excludes share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets derived from acquisitions, increased by 9.2% to RMB219.3 million (US$32.3 million) in the second quarter of 2017 compared to RMB200.8 million in the comparative period in 2016. Adjusted gross margin increased to 25.0% in the second quarter of 2017 compared to 22.0% in the comparative period in 2016.

OPERATING EXPENSES: Total operating expenses decreased by 10.6% to RMB268.5 million (US$39.6 million) in the second quarter of 2017 from RMB300.5 million in the comparative period in 2016.

Adjusted operating expenses, which exclude share-based compensation expenses and changes in the fair value of contingent purchase consideration payable, decreased by 17.7% to RMB258.0 million (US$38.1 million) in the second quarter of 2017 from RMB313.4 million in the comparative period in 2016. As a percentage of net revenues, adjusted operating expenses decreased to 29.4% in the second quarter of 2017 from 34.4% in the comparative period in 2016.

Sales and marketing expenses decreased by 15.1% to RMB70.9 million (US$10.5 million) in the second quarter of 2017 compared to RMB83.5 million in the comparative period in 2016. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in third party sales commissions

General and administrative expenses decreased by 10.1% to RMB139.1 million (US$20.5 million) in the second quarter of 2017 compared to RMB154.8 million in the comparative period in 2016. The decrease was primarily driven by a reduction in headcount.

Research and development expenses were RMB43.1 million (US$6.4 million) in the second quarter of 2017 compared to RMB33.0 million in the comparative period in 2016. The increase was primarily driven by increasing research staff for our core data center business.

Bad debt provisions decreased by 63.1% to RMB16.4 million (US$2.4 million) in the second quarter of 2017 compared to RMB44.6 million in the comparative period in 2016.

Changes in the fair value of contingent purchase consideration payable decreased by 93.3% to RMB1.0 million (US$0.2 million) in the second quarter of 2017 compared to RMB15.3 million in the comparative period in 2016.

ADJUSTED EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes share-based compensation expenses and changes in the fair value of contingent purchase consideration payable, increased to RMB108.6 million (US$16.0 million) in the second quarter of 2017 compared to RMB15.5 million in the comparative period in 2016.

NET PROFIT/LOSS: Net loss narrowed by 3.7% to RMB119.3 million (US$17.6 million) in the second quarter of 2017 compared to RMB123.8 million in the comparative period in 2016.

Adjusted net loss, which excludes share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets derived from acquisitions, and changes in the fair value of contingent purchase consideration payable and related deferred tax impact, narrowed by 28.1% to RMB83.5 million (US$12.3 million) in the second quarter of 2017 compared to RMB116.2 million in the comparative period in 2016. Adjusted net margin improved to negative 9.5% in the second quarter of 2017 compared to negative 12.8% in the comparative period in 2016.


LOSS PER SHARE: Diluted loss per share narrowed by 18.2% to RMB0.18 in the second quarter of 2017, which represents the equivalent of RMB1.08 (US$0.18) per American Depositary Share (“ADS”). Each ADS represents six ordinary shares.

Adjusted diluted loss per share narrowed by 35.0% to RMB0.13 in the second quarter of 2017, which represents the equivalent of RMB0.78 (US$0.12) per ADS. Adjusted diluted loss per share is calculated using adjusted net loss divided by the weighted average number of shares.
