First Quarter of 2022 Financial Results

Net revenues

Total net revenues were RMB3,148.1 million (US$496.6 million) in the first quarter of 2022, a decrease of 9.3% from RMB3,470.6 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Live video service revenues were RMB1,608.7 million (US$253.8 million) in the first quarter of 2022, a decrease of 18.0% from RMB1,962.1 million during the same period of 2021. The decrease was primarily attributable to consumption softness as a result of the macro headwind, and the strategic decision to scale back from Tantan's live streaming business.

Value-added service revenues mainly include virtual gift revenues and membership subscription revenues. Total value-added service revenues were RMB1,483.4 million (US$234.0 million) in the first quarter of 2022, an increase of 1.9% from RMB1,455.5 million during the same period of 2021. The year-over-year increase was primarily attributable to the rapid revenue growth from the new standalone apps, and to a lesser extent, the continued growth of the virtual gift business on the Momo application driven by product innovation. The increase was partially offset by the decrease in Tantan's value-added service as a result of its strategic decision to lower the monetization level in order to improve user experience and retention, as well as COVID's negative impact on users' dating sentiment and intention to pay for VAS.

Mobile marketing revenues were RMB27.9 million (US$4.4 million) in the first quarter of 2022, a decrease of 28.0% from RMB38.7 million during the same period of 2021. The decrease in mobile marketing revenues was due to the negative impact of macro headwind on client's advertising budget, and our product adjustment to address new regulation requirement.

Mobile games revenues were RMB25.5 million (US$4.0 million) in the first quarter of 2022, an increase of 128.0% from RMB11.2 million in the first quarter of 2021, primarily due to one new mobile game launched in the second half of 2021.

Net revenues from the Momo segment decreased from RMB2,901.8 million in the first quarter of 2021 to RMB2,798.9 million (US$441.5 million) in the first quarter of 2022, primarily due to the decrease in net revenues from live video service. Net revenues from the Tantan segment decreased from RMB567.7 million in the first quarter of 2021 to RMB349.0 million (US$55.1 million) in the first quarter of 2022, due to our strategy to lower the monetization level in order to improve user experience and retention, as well as the impact from the elevated COVID situations.

Cost and expenses

Cost and expenses were RMB2,820.0 million (US$444.8 million) in the first quarter of 2022, a decrease of 6.5% from RMB3,016.3 million in the first quarter of 2021. The decrease was primarily attributable to: (a) a decrease in personnel related costs including share-based compensation expenses resulting from the decreased number of employees and the decreased fair value of the share options granted during the period; (b) a decrease in revenue sharing with broadcasters related to Momo's core live video service and Tantan's live video service; and (c) a decrease in depreciation and amortization cost due to the impairment of intangible assets in 2021. These decreases were partially offset by an increase in revenue sharing with virtual gift recipients for our virtual gift service.

Non-GAAP cost and expenses (note 1) were RMB2,711.4 million (US$427.7 million) in the first quarter of 2022, a decrease of 4.4% from RMB2,835.3 million during the same period of 2021.

Income from operations

Income from operations was RMB352.0 million (US$55.5 million) in the first quarter of 2022, compared to RMB480.2 million during the same period of 2021. Income from operations of the Momo segment was RMB519.2 million (US$81.9 million) in the first quarter of 2022, which decreased from RMB573.2 million in the first quarter of 2021. Loss from operations of the Tantan segment was RMB161.8 million (US$25.5 million) in the first quarter of 2022, compared to loss from operations of RMB89.3 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Non-GAAP income from operations (note 1) was RMB460.6 million (US$72.7 million) in the first quarter of 2022, compared to RMB661.2 million during the same period of 2021. Non-GAAP income from operations of the Momo segment was RMB624.0 million (US$98.4 million) in the first quarter of 2022, which decreased from RMB700.5 million in the first quarter of 2021. Non-GAAP loss from operations of the Tantan segment was RMB157.9 million (US$24.9 million) in the first quarter of 2022, compared to non-GAAP loss from operations of RMB35.6 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Income tax expenses

Income tax expenses were RMB150.8 million (US$23.8 million) in the first quarter of 2022, compared to RMB91.4 million in the first quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily due to the following reasons: (a) in the first quarter of 2022, we accrued withholding income tax of RMB44.0 million (US$6.9 million) on undistributed earnings generated in the first quarter of 2022 by our wholly-foreign owned enterprise ('WFOE'), because we plan to remit WFOE's earnings to its offshore parent company in the foreseeable future to fund its demand on US dollar in business operations, payments of dividends, potential investments, etc.; (b) in the first quarter of 2021, we received tax refund resulted from additional expense deduction related to previous years.

Net income

Net income was RMB288.8 million (US$45.6 million) in the first quarter of 2022, compared to RMB460.9 million during the same period of 2021. Net income from the Momo segment was RMB456.5 million (US$72.0 million) in the first quarter of 2022, which decreased from RMB551.4 million in the first quarter of 2021. Net loss from the Tantan segment was RMB162.4 million (US$25.6 million) in the first quarter of 2022, compared to net loss of RMB86.8 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Non-GAAP net income (note 1) was RMB397.4 million (US$62.7 million) in the first quarter of 2022, compared to RMB633.0 million during the same period of 2021. Non-GAAP net income from the Momo segment was RMB561.3 million (US$88.6 million) in the first quarter of 2022, which decreased from RMB678.6 million in the first quarter of 2021. Non-GAAP net loss of the Tantan segment was RMB158.6 million (US$25.0 million) in the first quarter of 2022, compared to non-GAAP net loss of RMB42.0 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Net income attributable to Hello Group Inc.

Net income attributable to Hello Group Inc. was RMB289.9 million (US$45.7 million) in the first quarter of 2022, compared to a net income of RMB461.7 million during the same period of 2021.

Non-GAAP net income (note 1) attributable to Hello Group Inc. was RMB398.5 million (US$62.9 million) in the first quarter of 2022, compared to RMB633.7 million during the same period of 2021.

Net income per ADS

Diluted net income per ADS was RMB1.42 (US$0.22) in the first quarter of 2022, compared to RMB2.14 in the first quarter of 2021.

Non-GAAP diluted net income per ADS (note 1) was RMB1.94 (US$0.31) in the first quarter of 2022, compared to RMB2.91 in the first quarter of 2021.

Cash and cash flow

As of March 31, 2022, the Company's cash, cash equivalents, short-term deposits, long-term deposits, short-term restricted cash and long-term restricted cash totaled RMB15,596.6 million (US$2,460.3 million), compared to RMB15,707.0 million as of December 31, 2021. Net cash provided by operating activities in the first quarter of 2022 was RMB43.3 million (US$6.8 million), compared to RMB501.6 million in the first quarter of 2021. Included in our cash provided by operating activities is RMB140.0 million (US$22.1 million) of cash payment to Chinese tax authorities to repatriate RMB1,400.0 million (US$220.8 million) from our WFOE in China to our offshore entity. In addition, during the first quarter of 2022, the payment of revenue sharing to content providers were higher than payment during the same period last year as the beginning balance of revenue sharing payable was higher in the first quarter of 2022 than 2021. It has also caused the operating cash flow to decrease to a greater extent on a year over year basis than the non-GAAP Net income of the company.

Recent Development

Authorization of a new share repurchase program

On June 7, 2022, Hello Group's board of directors authorized a share repurchase program under which the Company may repurchase up to US$200 million of its shares over the next 24 months.

The Company's proposed repurchases may be made from time to time on 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 timing and conditions of the share repurchases will be subject to various factors, including the requirements under Rule 10b-18 and Rule 10b5-1 promulgated pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The Company plans to fund repurchases from its existing cash balance.

Payment of a special cash dividend

In March 2022, Hello Group's board of directors declared a special cash dividend in the amount of US$0.64 per ADS, or US$0.32 per ordinary share. The cash dividend was paid in April 2022 to shareholders of record at the close of business on April 13, 2022. The aggregate amount of cash dividends paid was US$127.3 million.

Business Outlook

For the second quarter of 2022, the Company expects total net revenues to be between RMB3.05 billion to RMB3.15 billion, representing a decrease of 14.2% to 16.9% year-over-year. This forecast reflects the Company's current and preliminary views on the market and operational conditions, which are subject to change, particularly as to the potential impact of the COVID-19 resurgence on the Chinese and global economies, as well as on users' paying capabilities.

Note 1: Non-GAAP measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ('GAAP'), we, Hello Group, use various non-GAAP financial measures that are adjusted from the most comparable GAAP results to exclude share-based compensation, impairment loss on goodwill and intangible assets, amortization of intangible assets from business acquisitions, and tax impacts related to the amortization of intangible assets from business acquisitions.

Reconciliations of our non-GAAP financial measures to our U.S. GAAP financial measures are shown in tables at the end of this earnings release, which provide more details about the non-GAAP financial measures.

Our non-GAAP financial information is provided as additional information to help investors compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis and to enhance investors' overall understanding of the historical and current financial performance of our continuing operations and our prospects for the future. Our non-GAAP financial information should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to the GAAP results. In addition, our calculation of the non-GAAP financial measures may be different from the calculation used by other companies, and therefore comparability may be limited.

Our non-GAAP information (including non-GAAP cost and operating expenses, income (loss) from operations, net income (loss), net income (loss) attributable to Hello Group Inc., and diluted net income per ADS) is adjusted from the most comparable GAAP results to exclude share-based compensation, impairment loss on goodwill and intangible assets, amortization of intangible assets from business acquisitions, and tax impacts related to the amortization of intangible assets from business acquisitions. A limitation of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that share-based compensation, impairment loss on goodwill and intangible assets, amortization of intangible assets from business acquisitions, and tax impacts related to the amortization of intangible assets from business acquisitions have been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future significant recurring expenses in our results of operations. We compensate for such limitation by providing reconciliations of our non-GAAP measures to our U.S. GAAP measures. Please see the reconciliation tables at the end of this earnings release.
