Fourth Quarter 2021 Other Operating Highlights

  • The average daily number of total subscribing members for the quarter was 97.0 million, compared to 102.7 million for the same period in 2020 and 104.7 million for the third quarter in 2021. The average daily number of subscribing members excluding individuals with trial memberships for the quarter was 96.4 million, compared to 101.9 million for the same period in 2020 and 103.8 million for the third quarter in 2021. The average daily number of total subscribing members for a quarter is calculated by averaging the number of total subscribing members in each day of such quarter. The average daily number of subscribing members excluding individuals with trial memberships for the quarter is calculated by averaging the number of subscribing members excluding individuals with trial memberships in each day of such quarter.
  • The monthly average revenue per membership (ARM) for the fourth quarter was RMB14.16, compared to RMB12.45 for the same period in 2020 and RMB13.65 for the third quarter in 2021. The monthly ARM for the quarter is calculated by dividing our total revenues from membership services during a given quarter by the average daily number of total subscribing members for that quarter and the number of months in the quarter.

Fourth Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Total revenues reached RMB7.4 billion (US$1.2 billion), approximately flat compared with the same period in 2020.

Membership services revenue was RMB4.1 billion (US$646.6 million), representing a 7% increase from the same period in 2020. This was primarily attributable to the increase of our membership ARM associated with our membership pricing adjustment and various initiatives to improve our monetization capabilities.

Online advertising services revenue was RMB1.7 billion (US$261.2 million), representing a 10% decrease from the same period in 2020, primarily due to the delays of premium content released during the quarter and the challenging macroeconomic environment in China.

Content distribution revenue was RMB761.5 million (US$119.5 million), representing a 5% decrease from the same period in 2020.

Other revenues were RMB841.8 million (US$132.1 million), representing a 12% decrease from the same period in 2020. The decrease was primarily due to the soft performance of various business lines.

Cost of revenues was RMB6.5 billion (US$1.0 billion), representing a 4% decrease from the same period in 2020. The decrease in cost of revenues was primarily due to lower content costs during the quarter. Content costs as a component of cost of revenues were RMB4.9 billion (US$763.5 million), representing a 5% decrease from the same period in 2020. The decrease of content cost was benefitted from our efforts in cost control and improvement in operating efficiency.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were RMB1.1 billion (US$171.5 million), representing a 17% decrease from the same period in 2020. The decrease was primarily due to lower marketing spending and share-based compensation expenses, partially offset by the non-recurring employee severance costs associated with the optimization of our organizational structure.

Research and development expenses were RMB763.1 million (US$119.8 million), representing a 15% increase from the same period in 2020. The increase was primarily due to non-recurring employee severance costs associated with the optimization of our organizational structure.

Operating loss was RMB975.2 million (US$153.0 million), compared to operating loss of RMB1.3 billion in the same period in 2020. Operating loss margin was 13%, compared to operating loss margin of 18% in the same period in 2020. Non-GAAP operating loss was RMB515.5 million (US$80.9 million) and non-GAAP operating loss margin was 7%, compared to non-GAAP operating loss of RMB940.7 million and non-GAAP operating loss margin of 13% in the same period in 2020.  

Total other expense was RMB753.4 million (US$118.2 million), compared to total other expense of RMB241.0 million during the same period of 2020. The year-over-year variance was mainly due to increased loss derived from equity investees and the increased interest expenses associated with our financing activities.

Loss before income taxes was RMB1.7 billion (US$271.3 million), compared to loss before income taxes of RMB1.5 billion in the same period in 2020.

Income tax expense was RMB36.5 million (US$5.7 million), compared to income tax benefit of RMB16.3 million in the same period in 2020.

Net loss attributable to iQIYI was RMB1.8 billion (US$278.7 million), compared to net loss attributable to iQIYI of RMB1.5 billion in the same period in 2020. Diluted net loss attributable to iQIYI per ADS was RMB2.24 (US$0.35) for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to diluted net loss attributable to iQIYI per ADS of RMB2.10 in the same period of 2020. Non-GAAP net loss attributable to iQIYI was RMB1.0 billion (US$157.2 million), compared to non-GAAP net loss attributable to iQIYI of RMB1.2 billion in the same period in 2020. Non-GAAP diluted net loss attributable to iQIYI per ADS was RMB1.26 (US$0.20), compared to non-GAAP diluted net loss attributable to iQIYI per ADS of RMB1.60 in the same period of 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement iQIYI's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, iQIYI uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP operating loss margin, non-GAAP net loss attributable to iQIYI, non-GAAP diluted net loss attributable to iQIYI per ADS and free cash flow. The presentation of the non-GAAP financial measure is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

iQIYI believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its operating performance by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of its business operating results, such as operating performance excluding non-cash charges or non-operating in nature. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to the 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 iQIYI's historical operating performance. The Company believes the 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 these non-GAAP financial measures is that the non-GAAP measures exclude certain items that have been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant component in the Company's results of operations. These non-GAAP financial measures presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures to the Company's data.

Non-GAAP operating loss represents operating loss excluding share-based compensation expenses, amortization and impairment of intangible assets resulting from business combinations and non-recurring employee severance costs.

Non-GAAP net loss attributable to iQIYI, Inc. represents net loss attributable to iQIYI, Inc. excluding share-based compensation expenses, amortization and impairment of intangible assets resulting from business combinations, non-recurring employee severance costs, disposal gain or loss, impairment of long-term investments, fair value change of long-term investments, adjusted for related income tax effects. iQIYI's share of equity method investments for these non-GAAP reconciling items, amortization and impairment of intangible assets not on the investees' books, accretion of their redeemable non-controlling interests, and the gain or loss associated with the issuance of shares by the investees at a price higher or lower than the carrying value per shares, adjusted for related income tax effects, are also excluded.

Non-GAAP diluted net loss per ADS represents diluted net loss per ADS calculated by dividing non-GAAP net loss attributable to iQIYI, Inc, which is adjusted for accretion for the redeemable non-controlling interests, by the weighted average number of ordinary shares expressed in ADS.

Free cash flow represents net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures.
