HANGZHOU, China, Nov. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Hailiang Education Group Inc. (Nasdaq: HLG) (“Hailiang Education”, the “Company” or “we”), an education and management service provider of primary, middle, and high schools in China, announced its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 ended September 30, 2020.

“Hailiang Education has achieved remarkable results through the continual improvement of brand awareness and the development of innovation strategies, albeit the COVID-19 pandemic still has temporary impact on part of our business. We will continue to build a one-stop comprehensive service platform for primary, middle and high school education, in order to provide students with high-quality education and management services and to vigorously develop additional education services, such as online and onsite educational training services, study trip services and overseas study services. In the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, we recorded revenue of RMB298.5 million (US$44.0 million), increased by 29.8% from RMB229.9 million for the same period of last year. We generated revenue of RMB263.1 million (US$38.8 Million) from primary, middle and high school educational services, an increase of 36.1% compared to the same period of last year. The net profit attributable to the Company’s shareholders was RMB26.9 million (US$4.0 million), compared with the net loss attributable to the Company’s shareholders of RMB15.3 million for the same period of last year. The net profit attributable to the Company’s shareholders margin was 9.0%, and the net loss attributable to the Company’s shareholders margin was 6.7% for the same period of last year, demonstrating Hailiang Education’s significant profitability,” said Dr. Junwei Chen, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hailiang Education.

Dr. Chen said, “The first quarter of fiscal year 2021 was a critical period for the new school year enrollment. As of September 30, 2020, the number of students enrolled at our affiliated schools reached 26,869, an increase of about 10.8% year-on-year. The total student enrollment of 72,846 in our affiliated and managed schools increased by approximately 9.5% year-on-year. We added three affiliated schools to our school network, namely Lanzhou Hailiang Experimental School, Hailiang Overseas Chinese School, and Wuhu Hailiang Experimental School, all of which started their first year of enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year in the first quarter of fiscal year 2021. As of September 30, 2020, there were 568, 828 and 409 students enrolled in these three schools, respectively. The Company also acquired Jinhua Hailiang Foreign Language School (“JHFL”) and completed the transfer of sponsorship in September 2020. As of September 30, 2020, the number of students enrolled in JHFL reached 739, an increase of 164 from the same period of last year. The increase in the number of students enrolled in our schools has proved that the Company’s precautionary measures during the COVID-19 have been effective and recognized by the public. The Company has successfully seized the opportunity to develop amid the negative impact of the COVID-19 on the education industry and the public’s philosophy of education. In addition, as of September 30, 2020, the number of students enrolled in the international education program at our affiliated schools reached 5,262, an increase of approximately 7.6% year-on-year. We managed to maintain such growth momentum despite the uncertainty of the global economy and the pandemic, thanks to the Company’s diversified curriculum business, especially our focus on creating educational products that integrate high-quality international education resources and China’s education entrance system. Our growth should also be attributed to the Company’s powerful insights into market opportunities and our ability to resist systemic risks when making important decisions.”

Dr. Chen stated, “In the post-pandemic era, online communications and interactions will change people’s daily life, learning behaviors and business patterns. Following the rapid development of the Company’s online education technology and curriculums, driven by the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, the Company has officially launched online educational training services of all subjects for students at all stages in the summer this year. The education quality has been widely recognized by our students and their parents. In the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, our online educational training business has served 10,415 student attendances. As of November 15, 2020, a total of 28,424 student attendances took our online courses during fiscal year 2021, providing sufficient driving force for the Company’s business development and innovation. On-site educational training services are also in a steady state of development. We expect that on-site training centers will be opened in all places where Hailiang Education schools are located in the future. In addition, the application of educational technology in schools also shows a trend of simultaneous innovation. The Company hopes to promote the high-quality development of education by tapping into the power of technology, and is committed to improving management efficiency and teaching and learning quality by creating “Smart Campus” and “Smart Classrooms”. Currently, we have formed an education research and development team with rich experience in education and IT application development. We are cooperating with top-tier universities and industry leaders in China to create technology and products, and will continue to upgrade “Smart Campus” and “Smart Classrooms” with various application scenarios. At present, more than 50 educational technology systems are used for various application scenarios to further standardize and intelligentize our management and teaching activities. As the brain of the entire Company, the big data center has strong storage and computing capabilities. It can provide sufficient data support for our management and decision-making, and realize a series of big data application scenarios, such as data integration and development management, by providing uniform data standards and services to our schools. For example, the big data center can record students’ grades, moral development, mental health and other dimensions of information, forming a complete “student growth profile” during a student’s entire school period. At the same time, we are actively accelerating the upgrade and launch of various new teaching system products. For example, Hailiang Star Classroom is now officially piloting in Hailiang Foreign Language School, Tianma Experimental School and Hailiang Experimental High School. Teachers have access to relevant lesson resources online and prepare online courseware to teach in class. This new system has saved teachers’ time for lesson preparation and has improved teaching efficiency in class. The overall usage coverage of the above three schools in the first month of the 2020-2021 school year has exceeded 40%. Teachers and students can also use the iClass system in classroom scenes. Currently, teachers can enhance interactions with students through iPads. The teaching resources will be gradually improved in the future, bringing in features such as AR electronic experiment display and online playback of course materials, and applications in students’ after-class scenes will be actively explored.”

First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2021 Financial Results

Revenue

Revenue increased by 29.8% to RMB298.5 million (US$44.0 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, from RMB229.9 million for the same period of last year. It was mainly due to the steady growth of our revenue from primary, middle and high school educational services, educational training services, as well as our education and management services for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 comparing to the same period of last year,  and partially offset by the decrease of revenue from our study trip services, which was temporarily impacted by COVID-19,

Revenue from primary, middle and high school educational services increased by RMB69.8 million (US$10.3 million), or 36.1% to RMB263.1 million (US$38.8 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021. Revenue from the basic educational programs increased by RMB45.4 million (US$6.7 million), or 33.9% to RMB179.4 million (US$26.4 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, from RMB134.0 million for the same period of last year. Revenue from the international programs increased by RMB24.4 million (US$3.6 million), or 41.1%, to RMB83.7 million (US$12.3 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, from RMB59.3 million for the same period of last year. The increase was mainly due to the increase in the number of students enrolled and the increase in the average tuition charged in both programs. Besides, as the 2019/2020 school year extended from June 2020 to July 2020 due to the impact of COVID-19, the deferred amount of revenue as of June 30, 2020 was recognized as revenue in the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, amounting to RMB36.4 million (US$5.4 million).

Revenue from educational training services increased by RMB10.8 million (US$1.6 million), or 120.0%, to RMB19.8 million (US$2.9 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, from RMB9.0 million for the same period of last year. This was mainly due to the great expansion of online educational training business in the summer of fiscal year 2021.

Revenue from study trip services decreased by RMB19.4 million (US$2.9million), or 91.5%, to RMB1.8 million (US$0.3 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, from RMB21.2 million for the same period of last year. This was mainly due to the restriction on travels because of COVID-19 which affected study trip services in fiscal year 2021.

Revenue from education and management services increased by RMB7.4 million (US$1.1 million), or 164.4%, to RMB11.9 million (US$1.8 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, from RMB4.5 million for the same period of last year. This was mainly due to the increase in the number of managed schools.

Other revenue mainly represented revenue derived from overseas study consulting services and hotel management services. Other revenue was RMB1.9 million (US$0.3 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, and was flat for the same period of last year.

Cost of Revenue

Cost of revenue increased by RMB20.7 million (US$3.0 million) or 8.9%, to RMB254.0 million (US$37.4 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, from RMB233.3 million for the same period of last year. The increase was primarily due to increased compensation levels of employees and an increase in the number of employees, and partially offset by a decrease in costs related to study trip services resulting from the outbreak of COVID-19.

Gross Profit/(loss) and Gross Profit/(loss) Margin

Gross profit was RMB44.5 million (US$6.6 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, compared with gross loss of RMB3.5 million for the same period of last year.

Gross profit margin was 14.9% for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, compared with gross loss margin of 1.5% for the same period of last year. The growth was mainly due to that 1) profitability of primary, middle and high school educational services improved resulting from the increase in the number of enrolled students and average tuition, 2) the proportion of study trip services, with low gross margin, declined due to the impact of COVID-19, and 3) as the 2019/2020 school year extended from June 2020 to July 2020 due to the impact of COVID-19, revenue from primary, middle and high school educational services increased comparing to the same period of last year, contributing for the increase of gross profit margin.

Other Income, net

Other income consists of government grants and other miscellaneous income. Other income increased by RMB3.0 million (US$0.4 million), or 19.7%, to RMB18.2 million (US$2.7 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, from RMB15.2 million for the same period of last year, primarily due to an increase in government grants of subsidies we received from the local government.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses increased by RMB1.6 million (US$0.2 million) or 7.1%, to RMB24.2 million (US$3.6 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, from RMB22.6 million for the same period of last year.

Selling expenses increased by RMB3.4 million (US$0.5 million) or 56.7%, to RMB9.4 million (US$1.4 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, from RMB6.0 million for the same period of last year. This increase was primarily due to the rapid expansion of the online training business for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, as a result, we recognized RMB1.4 million (US$0.2 million) of student enrollment rewards on online training business in current period. Excluding the above impact, our selling expenses as a percentage of total revenue kept stable compared with the same period of last year.

Administrative expenses decreased by RMB1.8 million (US$0.3 million) or 10.8%, to RMB14.8 million (US$2.2 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, from RMB16.6 million for the same period of last year. This decrease was primarily due to the reduction in administrative expenses resulting from the liquidation of Jiangxi Haibo Education Management Co., Ltd and the decrease in professional fees.

Finance Income and Finance Costs

Finance income decreased by RMB0.5 million (US$0.07 million), or 6.2%, to RMB7.6 million (US$1.1 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, from RMB8.1 million for the same period of last year.

Finance costs decreased by RMB3.4 million (US$0.5 million), or 91.9%, to RMB0.3 million (US$0.04 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, from RMB3.7 million for the same period of last year. This decrease was primarily due to the reduction in the interest on lease liabilities.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense increased by RMB7.6 million (US$1.1 million) or 58.5%, to RMB20.6 million (US$3.0 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, from RMB13.0 million for the same period of last year. The increase was mainly driven by the growth of taxable profits. Besides, as the school year started in September, our schools provided and recognized revenue from primary, middle, and high school educational service only for September during the first quarter of both fiscal years, while fixed cost and expenses was recognized on accrual basis, which resulted in a net loss for our affiliated schools. Moreover, except for Zhenjiang Jianghe High School of Art Co., Ltd. and Zhuji Hailiang Foreign Language High School Co., Ltd. that were subject to 25% income tax rate, other affiliated schools were exempt from income tax, thus, no deferred tax expense was recognized for net losses of our affiliated schools that were exempted from income tax. As a result, the combined effective tax rate was higher than the notional tax rate.

Net Profit/(loss) and Net Profit/(loss) Attributable to the Company’s Shareholders

Net profit was RMB25.3 million (US$3.7 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, compared with net loss of RMB19.4 million for the same period of last year.

Net profit attributable to the Company’s shareholders was RMB26.9 million (US$4.0 million) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, compared with net loss attributable to the Company’s shareholders of RMB15.3 million for the same period of last year.

Basic and Diluted Earnings/(loss) per Share

Basic and diluted earnings per share were RMB0.07 (US$0.01) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, compared with basic and diluted loss per share of RMB0.04 for the same period of last year.

Cash Flow

Net cash provided by operating activities was RMB1,027.9 million (US$151.4 million) for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, an increase of 48.9% from RMB690.2 million for the same period of last year. The increase was mainly due to an increase in the amount of tuition received. Net cash used in investing activities was RMB854.9 million (US$125.9 million) for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared with RMB735.5 million for the same period of last year. The increase was mainly due to the payment of the acquisition of JHFL and the increase of term deposits placed with a related party finance entity compared with the same period of last year. Net cash used in financing activities was RMB11.0 million (US$1.6 million) for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared with RMB51.2 million for the same period of last year. The decrease was mainly due to that no dividend was paid to non-controlling interests during current period, and less loan repayment to a related party compared with the same period of last year.

Balance Sheet

As of September 30, 2020, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of RMB676.7 million (US$99.7 million), compared with RMB515.3 million as of June 30, 2020. As of September 30, 2020, the Company had term deposits held at a related party finance entity of RMB1,698.8 million (US$250.2 million), compared with RMB921.6 million as of June 30, 2020.

Business Combination Between Entities Under Common Control

On July 15, 2020, the Company entered into a sponsorship transfer agreement with its affiliate Hailiang Education Investment Group Co., Ltd. (“Hailiang Investment”) to acquire 100% sponsorship of JHFL for a total consideration of RMB34 million. In September 2020, the Company completed all the required process to obtain the sponsorship of JHFL. Since the Company and JHFL were under common control by the ultimate controller Mr. Hailiang Feng, both before and after the acquisition and the control was not temporary, the transaction was accounted for as a business combination between entities under common control. The Company recognized the assets and liabilities of JHFL using the book value at the combination date. The difference between the carrying amount of the net asset acquired and the consideration paid was adjusted to “contributed capital”. The financial statements of JHFL were included in the Company’s consolidated financial statements based on the carrying amounts of the assets and liabilities as if the combination had occurred at the date that Mr Hailiang Feng first obtained control of JHFL. The opening balances and the comparative figures of the consolidated financial statements were also restated.
