Share Repurchase Program and Special Cash Dividend

In March 2024, the board of directors of the Company authorized a share repurchase program under which the Company is authorized to repurchase up to an aggregate value of US$25 million of its shares (including in the form of ADS) during the 12-month period beginning from March 22, 2024.

The Company’s proposed repurchases may be effected from time to time in the open market at prevailing market prices, in privately negotiated transactions, in block trades and/or through other legally permissible means, depending on market conditions and in accordance with applicable rules and regulations. The Company’s board of directors will review the share repurchase program periodically, and may authorize adjustment of its terms and size. The Company expects to fund the repurchases out of its cash balance.

The board of directors of the Company declared a special cash dividend of US$0.078 per ordinary share, or US$0.06 per ADS, to holders of ordinary shares and holders of ADSs of record as of the close of business on April 12, 2024, U.S. Eastern Time, payable in U.S. dollars. The ex-dividend date will be April 11, 2024. The payment date is expected to be on or around April 29, 2024. Dividend to be paid to the Company’s ADS holders through the depositary bank will be subject to the terms of the deposit agreement. The total amount of cash to be distributed for the dividend is expected to be approximately US$6 million, which will be funded by surplus cash on the Company’s balance sheet.

Mr. Xing Jin, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of So-Young, commented, “We are extremely pleased with what we accomplished in 2023. We closed out a difficult year on solid footing with a 20% increase in revenue for the fourth quarter to nearly RMB391 million, in line with our guidance, and regained profitability for the year with net income attributable to So-Young International Inc. of RMB17.5 million. In many ways, 2023 presented an even more challenging situation than the COVID-19 pandemic did. In this context, our financial results for the year are even more impressive and a testament to our resilience and adaptability in the face of evolving consumer behaviors and market practices. Looking back on the past year, we believe our differentiated strategy with a focus on premium services and products for high-tier users was – and will continue to be – key to maintaining stable growth going forward. The model clinic that we set up at our headquarters-focused on light aesthetic procedures-is a good example of this quality focus. Our supply chain business directly compliments this by allowing us to better keep on top of trends and guarantee the quality of our products as we secure additional product certifications. We are confident that these new businesses will become significant contributors to revenue in the coming quarters.”

Mr. Hui Zhao, Chief Financial Officer of So-Young, added, “The US$25 million share repurchase program and US$0.06 per ADS special cash dividend reflect our confidence in our future business prospects and commitment to returning capital to shareholders while ensuring that we have the resources necessary to fuel the future growth of our business.”

Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Revenues

Total revenues were RMB390.6 million (US$55.0 million), an increase of 20.1% from RMB325.1 million in the same period of 2022. The increase was primarily due to the increase in revenues generated by So-Young Prime and sales of cosmetic injectables.

  • Information services and other revenues were RMB268.1 million (US$37.8 million), an increase of 15.8% from RMB231.5 million in the same period of 2022. The increase was primarily due to an increase in revenues generated by So-Young Prime.
  • Reservation services revenues were RMB20.6 million (US$2.9 million), a decrease of 20.7% from RMB26.0 million in the same period of 2022. The decrease was primarily due to the operating strategy which gave higher subsidies to end users.
  • Sales of medical products and maintenance services[3] revenues were RMB101.9 million (US$14.4 million), an increase of 50.6% from RMB67.7 million in the same period of 2022, primarily due to an increase in sales of cosmetic injectables.  

Cost of Revenues[4]

Cost of revenues was RMB137.6 million (US$19.4 million), an increase of 56.0% from RMB88.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. The increase was primarily due to an increase in costs associated with So-Young Prime and the sales of cosmetic injectables. Cost of revenues included share-based compensation expenses of RMB0.2 million (US$0.0 million), compared with RMB1.0 million in the corresponding period of 2022.

  • Cost of services and others were RMB94.1 million (US$13.3 million), an increase of 73.6% from RMB54.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. The increase was primarily due to an increase in costs associated with So-Young Prime.
  • Cost of medical products sold and maintenance services were RMB43.6 million (US$6.1 million), an increase of 28.1% from RMB34.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. The increase was primarily due to an increase in costs associated with the sales of cosmetic injectables.  

[3] In the year of 2023, in light of the better monitoring business development of upstream supply chain, the Company grouped the revenue generated from sales of cosmetic injectables and sales of equipment and maintenance services into one line item, which is renamed as sales of medical products and maintenance services.

The sale of cosmetic injectables was previously reported in line item of information services and others. The information services and others for prior periods and the year of 2022 have also been retrospectively updated. The amount reclassified from information services and others to sales of medical products and maintenance services are RMB2.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2022 and RMB18.3 million for the year of 2022.

[4] In the year of 2023, the previous line item cost of revenues was separated into two line items, which are cost of medical products sold and maintenance services and cost of services and others. Cost of medical products sold and maintenance services primarily consists of expenditures relating to medical products and maintenance services, and the remaining cost of revenues is reclassified into cost of services and others. The cost of medical products sold and maintenance services and cost of services and others for prior periods and the year of 2022 have also been retrospectively reclassified.

  • General and administrative expenses were RMB86.7 million (US$12.2 million), an increase of 18.4% from RMB73.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, this press release presents non-GAAP income/(loss) from operations and non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to So-Young International Inc. by excluding share-based compensation expenses from income/(loss) from operations and net income/(loss) attributable to So-Young International Inc., respectively. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are important to help investors understand the Company’s operating and financial performance, compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis and assess the Company’s core operating results, as they exclude certain expenses that are not expected to result in cash payments. The use of the above non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations. Share-based compensation expenses have been and will continue to be incurred in the future. All these are not reflected in the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures, but should be considered in the overall evaluation of the Company’s results. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing the relevant disclosure of its share-based compensation expenses in the reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which should be considered when evaluating the Company’s performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is set forth at the end of this release.
