Recent Business Highlights

  • Fitch rated Vipshop as BBB+, Moody's rated the Company as Baa1, and Standard & Poor's rated the Company as BBB. These solid investment grade ratings from all the "Big Three" global rating agencies are endorsements of the Company's business fundamentals, financial strengths, investment prospects, and future market potential.
  • In January 2017, a Vipshop's subsidiary operating its Internet finance business completed its first tranche of Renminbi-denominated asset-backed securities ("ABS") of RMB300 million, which is listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange in China. The Company is currently preparing for future follow-on ABS offerings in China.

  • Vipshop recently introduced local distribution centers in Fuzhou, Hangzhou, Zhengzhou, Shenyang and Xi'an to cater to more standardized and high frequency purchased products for its cosmetics and baby maternity categories.

In the fourth quarter of 2016, over 60% of Vipshop's returns were collected by the Company's full time delivery staff, which represents a significant increase from 30% at the beginning of 2016.
  • Vipshop and Tencent Qzone co-released a report based upon both companies' big data analytics, which focuses on emerging fashion color trends and identifies fashion preferences for China's younger generation. The insights were reflected in designer Chi Zhang's new collection, which was presented in New York Fashion Week in February 2017. The collection will also be available exclusively on the Vipshop platform in the second half of 2017. This is the first season of a series of cross-industry collaborations initiated by Vipshop.
  • As of December 2016, the Company had ten overseas offices for its cross-border business to expand its global merchandising. Currently, Vipshop has leased seven overseas warehouses and is in the process of expanding its international warehouse space. 
  • Vipshop added various popular international and domestic brands throughout 2016 including well-known brands like UGG, Tory Burch, Brooks Brothers, Belle and many others.
  • In September 2016, Vipshop completed the acquisition of third-party payment license holder, Beifu, and during December, Beifu officially changed its corporate name to Zhejiang Vipshop Payment Services Co., Ltd., marking another important step in expanding the Company's ecosystem.

These forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as "will," "expects," "anticipates," "future," "intends," "plans," "believes," "estimates" and similar statements. Among other things, the business outlook and quotations from management in this announcement, as well as Vipshop's strategic and operational plans, contain forward-looking statements. Vipshop may also make written or oral forward-looking statements in its periodic reports to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), in its annual report to shareholders, in press releases and other written materials and in oral statements made by its officers, directors or employees to third parties. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about Vipshop's beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties. A number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement, including but not limited to the following: Vipshop's goals and strategies; Vipshop's future business development, results of operations and financial condition; the expected growth of the online discount retail market in China; Vipshop's ability to attract customers and brand partners and further enhance its brand recognition; Vipshop's expectations regarding demand for and market acceptance of flash sales products and services; competition in the discount retail industry; fluctuations in general economic and business conditions in China and assumptions underlying or related to any of the foregoing. Further information regarding these and other risks is included in Vipshop's filings with the SEC. All information provided in this press release and in the attachments is as of the date of this press release, and Vipshop does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement, except as required under applicable law.

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"), except that the consolidated statement of shareholders' equity, consolidated statements of cash flows, and the detailed notes required by Accounting Standards Codification 270 Interim Reporting ("ASC270"), have not been presented. Vipshop uses non-GAAP net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders, non-GAAP net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders per diluted ADS, non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP operating income margin, non-GAAP net margin attributable to Vipshop's shareholders, and free cash flow, each of which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Non-GAAP net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders is net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses, impairment loss of investments, and amortization of intangible assets resulting from a business acquisition and equity method investments. Non-GAAP net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders per diluted ADS is non-GAAP net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders divided by weighted average number of diluted ADS outstanding for computing diluted earnings per ADS. Non-GAAP income from operations is income from operations excluding share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets resulting from a business acquisition. Non-GAAP operating income margin is non-GAAP income from operations as a percentage of total net revenue. Non-GAAP net margin attributable to Vipshop's shareholders is non-GAAP net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders as a percentage of total net revenue. Free cash flow is the operating cash flow adding back the impact from Internet financing activities and less capital expenditures, which include purchase of property and equipment, purchase and deposits of land use rights, and purchase of other assets. The Company believes that separate analysis and exclusion of the non-cash impact of share-based compensation, impairment loss of investments and amortization of intangible assets adds clarity to the constituent parts of its performance. The Company reviews these non-GAAP financial measures together with GAAP financial measures to obtain a better understanding of its operating performance. It uses these non-GAAP financial measures for planning, forecasting and measuring results against the forecast. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures are useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance without the effect of non-cash share-based compensation expenses, impairment loss of investments, and amortization of intangible assets. Free cash flow enables the Company to assess liquidity and cash flow, taking into account the impact from Internet financing activities and the financial resources needed for the expansion of fulfillment infrastructure and technology platform. Share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets have been and will continue to be significant recurring expenses in its business. However, the use of non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not include all items that impact the Company's net income for the period. In addition, because non-GAAP financial measures are not measured in the same manner by all companies, they may not be comparable to other similar titled measures used by other companies. One of the key limitations of free cash flow is that it does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider non-GAAP financial measure in isolation from or as an alternative to the financial measure prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Vipshop Holdings Limited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" at the end of this release.
