Kingsoft Cloud Announces Unaudited Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2021 Financial Results

Mar 24, 2022

BEIJING, March 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kingsoft Cloud Holdings Limited (“Kingsoft Cloud” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: KC), a leading independent cloud service provider in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2021.

Mr. Yulin Wang, Chief Executive Officer of Kingsoft Cloud, commented, “Our total revenues reached RMB2.66 billion in the fourth quarter, representing a strong growth of 38% year-over-year. Revenues from public cloud services were RMB1.53 billion, which were negatively impacted by a sector-wide demand slowdown from the China internet space. To adapt to this market headwind, we conducted a timely strategic review of our businesses, proactively initiated down-sizing of our CDN services and focusing on non-CDN services (i.e. computing, storage and enterprise cloud services, or 'core cloud services'). We expect these strategic initiatives to facilitate quality and sustained growth.”

Mr. Henry He, Chief Financial Officer of Kingsoft Cloud, added, “As a result of the above mentioned strategic initiatives, gross billings from our core cloud services grew strongly and achieved a 64% increase year-over-year. Our gross margin for this quarter was adversely impacted by our CDN services, as a result of the internet sector slowdown in 2021 in general, and in the second half of the year in particular. Such weaker-than-expected demand for CDN services throughout the year resulted in redundancy of underlying resources including IDC and bandwidth, which we planned and committed to on an annual basis at the beginning of 2021. Looking forward, with the effect of our strategic initiatives unfold we expect to see improvement in adjusted gross margin and EBITDA margin in the first quarter of 2022. We also expect to achieve a positive adjusted EBITDA margin in the fourth quarter of 2022.

"We care about our investors and strive to explore all tools at our disposal to maximize shareholder value. We entered into strategic cooperation and anti- dilution agreements with our strategic shareholders, namely Kingsoft Group and Xiaomi Group, delivering a strong message of shareholders’ confidence in our business, and enabling them to participate in our potential future financing transactions without being passively diluted. We are also exploring a dual primary listing on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange to provide our investors with greater protection and liquidity amid evolving market and regulatory environment. In addition, we are exploring various approaches including but not limited to share repurchase to deliver long-term value to our shareholders. We hope that these efforts will deliver a strong message of commitment and confidence we have in our business prospect, and facilitate the alignment of our long-term intrinsic value and our share price.”

Fourth Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Total Revenues reached RMB2,659.7 million (US$417.41 million), representing an accelerated increase of 38.3% from RMB1,922.7 million in the same period of 2020. The increases were due to the robust growth in core cloud services, but partially dragged by our proactively decrease of CDN services. Gross billings from core cloud services were increased by 63.8% year-over-year.

  • Revenues from public cloud services were RMB1,530.5 million (US$240.2 million), representing an increase of 12.4% from RMB1,361.5 million in the same period of 2020. The increase was mainly due to our stable relationships with our premium customers.
  • Revenues from enterprise cloud services were RMB1,128.8 million (US$177.1 million), representing an increase of 110.6% from RMB535.9 million in the same period of 2020. The increase was mainly due to the synergies from Camelot, the stable demand in the market and our capabilities to provide end-to-end industry-specific solutions.
  • Other revenues were RMB0.4 million (US$0.1 million).

Cost of revenues was RMB2,631.8 million (US$413.0 million), representing an increase of 43.8% from RMB1,830.2 million in the same period of 2020. IDC costs increased by 20.2% to RMB1,321.9 million (US$207.4 million) from RMB1,100.1 million in the same period of 2020. The increase was mainly due to redundancy of underlying resources, resulting from lower demand growth of Internet customers. Staff costs were RMB361.8 million (US$56.8 million), which has been increased by the consolidation of Camelot. Other costs increased by 30.4% to RMB720.8 million (US$113.1 million), which was mainly due to the revenue growth and offset by the cost saving synergies from Camelot and improving deployment efficacy. Depreciation and amortization costs were RMB227.3 million (US$35.7 million).

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial information is prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). In evaluating our business, we consider and use certain non-GAAP measures, Non-GAAP gross profit, Non-GAAP gross margin, Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP EBITDA margin, Non-GAAP net loss and Non-GAAP net loss margin, as supplemental measures to review and assess our 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. We define Non-GAAP gross profit as gross profit excluding share-based compensation allocated in the cost of revenues, and we define Non-GAAP gross margin as Non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenues. We define Non-GAAP net loss as net loss excluding share-based compensation, foreign exchange (gain) loss, net other gain and net other expense (income) and we define Non-GAAP net loss margin as Non-GAAP net loss as a percentage of revenues. We define Non-GAAP EBITDA as Non-GAAP net loss excluding interest income, interest expense, income tax expense and depreciation and amortization, and we define Non-GAAP EBITDA margin as Non-GAAP EBITDA as a percentage of revenues. We present these non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by our management to evaluate our operating performance and formulate business plans. We also believe that the use of these non-GAAP measures facilitates investors’ assessment of our operating performance.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. One of the key limitations of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect our operations. Further, these non-GAAP measures may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.

We compensate for these limitations by reconciling these non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating our performance. We encourage you to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
