“Our business continued to gain growth momentum with parcel volume growth again exceeding the industry average,” commented Mr. Meisong Lai, founder and Chief Executive Officer. “Our parcel volume grew by 37.6% year-over-year during the quarter, well above the increase of 30.7% for the industry overall during the same period. Our market share continued to expand as well, underlining just how effective our strategy of balancing growth with service quality and profitability is in strengthening our industry-leading position and aligning the interest of our network partners with ZTO. We continued to optimize parcel mix during the quarter by focusing more on more profitable parcels to improve efficiency and lower unit cost. This resulted in lower average revenue per parcel as parcel weight fell, but our margins continued to expand thanks to our economies of scale and the various cost cutting measures we have been implementing, all without affecting the high quality service we are known for. According to data published by the PRC State Post Bureau, ZTO once again received one of the highest scores for customer satisfaction among the major express delivery companies in China during the quarter. We are increasingly benefiting from our economies of scale and lower unit operating costs. We continue to strengthen our cost leadership position by improving operational efficiency with more automated sorting equipment, putting more of our self-owned fleet on the road instead of outsourced transportation, and increasing the use of digital waybills. These measures contributed to a decrease in cost of revenue per parcel to RMB1.24 during the quarter from RMB1.34 in the same period last year.”

“Our financial performance during the quarter demonstrates how we are benefiting from larger economies of scale and our cost cutting measures,” commented Mr. James Guo, Chief Financial Officer of ZTO. “This is especially evident with the expansion of our margins. Our gross margin, operating margin, net margin and non-GAAP net margin expanded to 37.8%, 31.0%, 24.1% and 24.6%, respectively, compared to 36.2%, 26.3%, 18.6% and 22.3%, respectively, during the same period last year.”

Total cost of revenues were RMB1,847.5 million (US$272.5 million), an increase of 26.6% from RMB1,458.8 million in the same period last year. The increase was primarily a result of increases in line-haul transportation costs, sorting hub operating costs, cost of accessories sold, and other costs, which were partially offset by a decrease in waybill material cost due to the increased use of digital waybills by the Company’s end customers which bear lower costs than paper waybills.

  • Line haul transportation cost was RMB1,062.5 million (US$156.7 million), an increase of 29.2% from RMB822.6 million in the same period last year. The increase was mainly due to an increase of RMB206.8 million (US$30.5 million) in costs associated with the Company’s self-owned fleet which includes fuel, tolls, drivers’ compensation, depreciation and maintenance expenses, and an increase of RMB62.6 million (US$9.2 million) in outsourced transportation costs. Line haul transportation cost increased at a lower rate than parcel volume as the Company continues to optimize parcel mix by focusing more on profitable parcels. As a percentage of revenues, line haul transportation cost accounted for 35.8%, a decrease from 36.0% in the same period last year, mainly due to (i) economies of scale, (ii) increased use of self-owned, more cost-efficient, higher capacity trailer trucks in place of third-party trucks and outsourced transportation, and (iii) increased truck utilization through optimized route planning and increased back-haul transportation.
  • Sorting hub operating cost was RMB527.9 million (US$77.9 million), an increase of 16.6% from RMB452.7 million in the same period last year. The increase was mainly due to (i) increased labor costs of RMB22.7 million (US$3.3 million) as a result of an increase in headcount; (ii) an RMB30.7 million (US$4.5 million) increase in depreciation and amortization costs, and (iii) an increase of RMB11.4 million (US$1.7 million) in rental and related utilities costs. As a percentage of revenues, sorting hub operating cost accounted for 17.8%, a decrease from 19.8% in the same period last year, mainly due to economies of scale and improved operating efficiency as a result of the increased use of automation in the Company’s sorting facilities.
  • Cost of accessories was RMB83.7 million (US$12.3 million), an increase of 16.0% from RMB72.1 million in the same period last year. The increase was in line with growth in the Company’s revenue from the sale of accessories to its network partners, which includes thermal paper for digital waybill printing, portable bar code readers, and ZTO-branded packaging materials and uniforms. As a percentage of revenues, cost of accessories accounted for 2.8%, a decrease from 3.1% in the same period last year.
  • Other costs were RMB173.5 million (US$25.6 million), an increase of 55.7% from RMB111.4 million in the same period last year, primarily due to an increase in dispatching costs associated with serving enterprise customers, which were partially offset by a decrease in costs associated with the increased use of digital waybills.

Gross Profit was RMB1,123.9 million (US$165.8 million), an increase of 35.8% from RMB827.8 million in the same period last year. Gross margin increased to 37.8% from 36.2% in the same period last year, mainly attributable to the decrease in line-haul transportation cost and sorting hub cost.

Total Operating Expenses were RMB202.6 million (US$29.9 million), a decrease of 10.2% from RMB225.7 million in the same period last year.

  • Selling, general and administrative expenses were RMB202.7 million (US$29.9 million), a decrease of 7.1% from RMB218.1 million in the same period last year. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in share-based compensation expenses from RMB83.4 million in the second quarter of 2016 to RMB13.5 million in the second quarter of 2017. The decrease in share-based compensation expenses was partially offset by an increase in other employee compensation expenses including accrual of cost saving incentives and bonuses of RMB49.4 million, and a provision for bad debt expense of RMB7.0 million in the second quarter of 2017. As a percentage of revenue, selling, general and administrative expenses accounted for 6.8%, compared to 9.5% during the same period last year, primarily due to reduced share-based compensation expenses and higher operating leverage.

Income from operations was RMB921.3 million (US$135.9 million), an increase of 53.0% from RMB602.1 million in the same period last year. Operating margin increased to 31.0% from 26.3% in the same period last year, primarily due to increases in economies of scale and continuous improvement in operating efficiency.

Interest income was RMB39.6 million (US$5.8 million), compared with RMB11.8 million in the same period in 2016, primarily due to the increased amount of cash and bank deposits available for investment since the Company’s initial public offering in October 2016.

Interest expense was RMB5.0 million (US$0.7 million), compared with RMB4.7 million in the same period in 2016.

Foreign currency exchange loss, before tax was RMB2.9 million (US$0.4 million), which was mainly due to the depreciation of the U.S. dollar against the Chinese Renminbi.

Net income was RMB716.9 million (US$105.8 million), compared with RMB425.8 million in the same period last year.

Basic and diluted earnings per ADS were RMB1.00 (US$0.15), compared with basic and diluted earnings per ADS of RMB0.60 in the same period last year.

Adjusted net income was RMB730.4 million (US$107.7 million), compared with adjusted net income of RMB509.2 million during the same quarter last year.

EBITDA was RMB1,091.1million (US$160.9 million), compared with RMB670.3 million in the same period last year.

Adjusted EBITDA was RMB1,104.6million (US$162.9 million), compared to RMB753.7 million in the same period last year.

Net cash provided by operating activities was RMB903.2million (US$133.2million), compared with 278.5 million in the same period last year, mainly attributable to growth in net income and increased deposits for last-mile delivery fees.

Business Outlook

Based on current market conditions and current operations, revenues for the third quarter of 2017 is expected to be in the range of RMB2.9 billion (US$427.8 million) to RMB3.0 billion (US$442.5 million), representing a 23.2 % to 27.5% increase from the same period of 2016. This represents management’s current and preliminary view, which is subject to change.

Company Share Purchase

On May 21, 2017, the Company announced a new share repurchase program whereby ZTO is authorized to repurchase its own Class A ordinary shares in the form of ADSs with an aggregate value of up to US$300 million during the 12-month period thereafter. As of June 30, 2017, the Company has purchased an aggregate of 2,623,414 ADSs at an average purchase price of US$14.33.

The Company believes that the share repurchase program represents ZTO’s confidence in its cash flow and the long-term outlook for the express delivery industry in China. ZTO’s fast-growing strategy, asset-light business model and solid operations allow the Company to generate strong cash flow. The Company believes that the share repurchase program is consistent with the goal of increasing shareholders’ value.

Exchange Rate

This announcement contains translation of certain Renminbi amounts into U.S. dollars at specified rates solely for the convenience of readers. Unless otherwise noted, all translations from Renminbi to U.S. dollars were made at the exchange rate of RMB6.7793 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate on June 30, 2017 as set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Systems.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income, each a non-GAAP financial measure, in evaluating ZTO’s operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes.

Reconciliations of the Company’s non-GAAP financial measures to its U.S. GAAP financial measures are shown in tables at the end of this earnings release, which provide more details about the non-GAAP financial measures.

The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income help identify underlying trends in ZTO’s business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of the expenses and gains that the Company includes in income from operations and net income. The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income provide useful information about its operating results, enhance the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by ZTO’s management in its financial and operational decision-making.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income should not be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to net income or any other measure of performance or as an indicator of the Company’s operating performance. Investors are encouraged to review the historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income presented here 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 ZTO’s data. ZTO encourages investors and others to review the Company’s financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

5 The amount of cash used in investing activities mainly includes purchases of the fixed term bank deposits with an original maturity of six to nine months. For the first and second quarter of 2017, the Company purchased approximately RMB4.8 billion (US$700.0 million) and RMB440.7 million (US$65.0 million) of such deposits.

6 In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-18 (“ASU 2016-18”), Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230) – Restricted Cash. This ASU requires amounts generally described as restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents to be included with cash and cash equivalents when reconciling beginning-of-period and end-of-period total amounts shown on the statement of cash flows. The provisions of ASU 2016-18 are effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017 and are to be applied retrospectively; early adoption is permitted. We elected, as permitted by the standards, to early adopt ASU 2016-18 in the first quarter of 2017. In connection with the adoption of this update, we have reclassified RMB85.4 million and RMB54.9 million of restricted cash from operating activities to the cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash balance in the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2016, respectively, to be consistent with the 2017 presentation.
