[2] Gross billings for a specific period, which is one of the Company's key operating data, is defined as the total amount of cash received for the sale of course packages and services in such period, net of the total amount of refunds in such period.

[3] An "active student" for a specified period refers to a student who booked at least one paid lesson, excluding those students who only attended paid live broadcasting lessons or trial lessons.

"We are delighted to report another solid quarter as first quarter net revenue reached RMB600.4 million, a 23.3% year-over-year increase that once again beat the top end of our guidance," said Mr. Jack Jiajia Huang, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of 51Talk. "Remarkably, our net revenues from K12 one-on-one mass market offering grew 36.0% compared to first quarter last year. This performance was mainly driven by an increase in the number of active students, which rose 37.0% year-over-year. These results illustrate the massive opportunity that exists in K12 one-on-one mass market with the growing acceptance of online education.

"In addition to organic growth through our existing strategies, we have also been pursuing external opportunities with our recent acquisition of Koala Reading. We are leveraging its expertise in Chinese reading assessments, and plan to further develop a trailblazing English reading skill evaluation system that allows us to improve our product offerings. Furthermore, this acquisition widens our course offerings with additional Chinese courses, which is in line with the long term strategy of diversifying our curriculum portfolio. Along with our efforts in enhancing teacher operations, optimizing curriculums and developing AI-powered robotic tutors, the acquisition of Koala Reading is a testament to our commitment in providing the best learning experience to our students.

"In order to solidify our leadership in K12 one-on-one mass market English education, we are focused on ramping up our branding and marketing efforts and improving student satisfaction while also investing in product development  and upgrading course offerings and services. We are excited to announce the appointment of Ms. Maine Mendoza as our latest Brand Ambassador and 51Talk Guest Teacher. Ms. Maine Mendoza is a well-known Filipino actress and social media influencer. Her appointment instantly became the most tweeted event in the Philippines and further strengthens our brand recognition in the country. I look forward to continuing to execute our mission to deliver long term benefits to all stakeholders," concluded Mr. Huang.

"Starting off 2021 with such a solid financial and operating performance is well within our expectations," said Mr. Min Xu, Chief Financial Officer of 51Talk. "I am pleased to report that in addition to robust growth in net revenues, we delivered another profitable quarter with GAAP net income of RMB8.0 million and non-GAAP net income of RMB16.8 million, primarily resulting from significantly higher lesson consumption and improved operating efficiency. In order to keep the Company on track for healthy growth and profitability, we are proactively refining our operations to maintain high efficiency at all levels, ultimately stimulating student growth and brand awareness, as a leading and dependable online education platform in China."

Change in Segment Reporting

Effective as of March 31, 2021, the Company changed its segment disclosure and no longer separately reports the financial results of its small class business, as the operating decision maker ("CODM") no longer  reviews the stand-alone operating information of the small class business.  This is due to the immaterial contribution the small class business is expected to provide in the future, consistent with the Company's strategic decision to focus business development on the one-on-one mass market offering. The CODM has been identified as the Chief Executive Officer, who now reviews consolidated results when making decisions about allocating resources and assessing performance of the Company as a whole, and hence, the Company has only one reportable segment. This change in segment presentation does not affect consolidated balance sheets or consolidated statements of comprehensive income. The Company retrospectively revised prior period segment information to conform to current period presentation.

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the first quarter of 2021 were RMB600.4 million (US$91.6 million), a 23.3% increase from RMB487.1 million for the same quarter last year.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating its business, 51Talk considers and uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC as supplemental metrics to review and assess its operating performance: non-GAAP sales and marketing expenses, non-GAAP product development expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shareholders, and non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shareholders per share and per ADS. To present each of these non-GAAP measures, the Company excludes share-based compensation expenses. 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 GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this press release.

51Talk believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance by excluding share-based compensation expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. 51Talk believes that both management and investors benefit from these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing its performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to 51Talk's historical performance. 51Talk computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter and from period to period. 51Talk believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. A limitation of using non-GAAP measures is that these non-GAAP measures exclude share-based compensation expenses that have been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in the 51Talk's business. Management compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying table at the end of this press release provides more details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.
