Looking at the fourth quarter 2015 results, we are very pleased to see our strategies to expand market share pay off, as evidenced by the reacceleration of revenue, active users and total orders on our platform. We also continued to enhance the user experience by optimizing our platform for mobile interaction and purchasing, as well as expanding our product categories through various initiatives including the build out of our emerging cross-border offering. In the fourth quarter of 2015, mobile accounted for approximately 82% of our GMV, up from 66% a year ago, further validating the appeal of our flash sale offering to on-the-go shoppers. Our cross-border business continues to gain momentum and has reached approximately 5% of GMV, demonstrating solid potential to be a strong growth driver in the future. As we diversify our product offering and further enhance the customer experience, we are confident in our ability to drive further growth and value for investors."

Mr. Donghao Yang, chief financial officer of Vipshop, commented, "We are very pleased with our fourth quarter and full year 2015 results. What was particularly encouraging was our ability to simultaneously reaccelerate growth in revenue, active users and total orders in the fourth quarter, while maintaining stable customer acquisition costs and marketing expenses as a percentage of total revenue. Furthermore, we were able to continue to strengthen our quarterly operating margins to 5.8% from 4.5% in the prior year period, even as our gross margins slightly contracted due to increased promotional activities to expand market share. We continued to make progress building out our warehousing and logistics capabilities. By the end of January 2016, our in-house and invested last mile capabilities supported over 83% of the orders on our platform. Looking ahead, our goal is to further grow our market share and top-line through investments in new user acquisition and marketing, while maintaining discipline with our expenses and investments."

Fourth Quarter 2015 Financial Results

REVENUE

Total net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2015 increased by 65% to RMB13.90 billion (US$2.15 billion) from RMB8.41 billion in the prior year period, primarily driven by the growth in the numbers of total active customers, repeat customers, total orders, as well as the increasing revenue contribution from the mobile platform.

The number of active customers for the fourth quarter of 2015 increased by 58% to 19.8 million from 12.5 million in the prior year period. The number of total orders for the fourth quarter of 2015 increased by 67% to 64.9 million from 38.9 million in the prior year period[6].

In an effort to increase focus on its core flash sales business, the Company began to substantially scale down its lower-margin group-buy business in the third quarter of 2014. Excluding the impact of the group-buy business and Lefeng, the number of total customers and total orders for Vipshop's core flash sales business increased by 76% and 80% year over year, respectively. On the mobile platform, the number of total active customers and total orders for Vipshop's core flash sales business increased by 124% and 126% year over year, respectively.

GROSS PROFIT

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2015 increased by 60% to RMB3.35 billion (US$517 million) from RMB2.09 billion in the prior year period. Gross margin was 24.1%, as compared with 24.9% in the prior year period. The decline in gross margin is primarily attributable to increased promotional activities and sales to drive user and order growth on the platform.

OPERATING INCOME AND EXPENSES

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2015 were RMB2.72 billion (US$420 million), as compared with the RMB1.78 billion in the prior year period. As a percentage of total net revenue, total operating expenses decreased to 19.6% from 21.2% in the prior year period.

  • Fulfillment expenses for the fourth quarter of 2015 were RMB1.26 billion (US$195 million), as compared with RMB789 million in the prior year period, primarily reflecting the increase in sales volume, and number of orders fulfilled. As a percentage of total net revenue, fulfillment expenses decreased to 9.1% from 9.4% in the prior year period, primarily reflecting the scale effect associated with the growth in total net revenue.
  • Marketing expenses for the fourth quarter of 2015 were RMB715 million (US$110 million), as compared with RMB421 million in the prior year period, reflecting the Company's strategy to drive long-term growth through increasing investments in strengthening its brand awareness, attracting new users and expanding market share. As a percentage of total net revenue, marketing expenses were 5.1%, as compared to 5.0% in the prior year period.
  • Technology and content expenses for the fourth quarter of 2015 were RMB322 million (US$50 million), as compared with RMB236 million in the prior year period, reflecting the Company's continued efforts to invest in human capital and advanced technologies such as data analytics, which can help improve the ability to predict consumer behavior and further enhance user experience. As a percentage of total net revenue, technology and content expenses decreased to 2.3% from 2.8% in the prior year period, primarily reflecting the scale effect associated with the growth in total net revenue.
  • General and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2015 were RMB421 million (US$65 million), as compared with RMB334 million in the prior year period. As a percentage of total net revenue, general and administrative expenses decreased to 3.0% from 4.0% in the prior year period, primarily reflecting the scale effect associated with the growth in total net revenue.

Income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2015 increased by 114% to RMB802 million (US$124 million) from RMB375 million in the prior year period due to the growing scale of the Company's operations and decrease in fulfillment, technology and content and general and administrative expenses as a percentage of total net revenue. Operating margin increased to 5.8% from 4.5% in the prior year period.

Non-GAAP income from operations, which excludes share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets resulting from a business acquisition, increased by 96% to RMB966 million (US$149 million) from RMB493 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP operating income margin increased to 6.9% from 5.9% in the prior year period.

NET INCOME

Exchange loss was RMB73 million (US$11 million), as compared to RMB20 million in the prior year period, primarily driven by the weakening value of the Renminbi relative to the U.S. dollar. Income tax expense was RMB163 million (US$25 million), as compared to RMB61 million in the prior year period, primarily due to the increase in net income before taxes as well as an increase in the effective tax rate over the prior year period. The lower effective tax rate in the prior year period was primarily due to the utilization of tax loss carryforward, and the recognition of catch-up tax savings of a subsidiary, which saw its income tax rate lowered to 15% from 25% after the local tax bureau approved its preferential tax treatment in the prior year period.

Net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders increased by 45% to RMB506 million (US$78 million) from RMB349 million in the prior year period. Net margin attributable to Vipshop's shareholders was 3.6%, as compared to 4.2% in the prior year period. Net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders per diluted ADS[7] increased to RMB0.84 (US$0.13) from RMB0.58 in the prior year period.

Non-GAAP net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders, which excludes share-based compensation expenses, impairment loss of investments, and amortization of intangible assets resulting from a business acquisition and equity method investments, increased by 61% to RMB741 million (US$114 million) from RMB460 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP net margin attributable to Vipshop's shareholders was 5.3%, as compared to 5.5% in the prior year period. The contractions in both net margin and non-GAAP net margin attributable to Vipshop's shareholders were primarily due to the relatively large exchange loss in the period as well as the large increase in income tax expense. Non-GAAP net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders per diluted ADS increased to RMB1.22 (US$0.19) from RMB0.77 in the prior year period.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, the Company's weighted average number of ADSs used in computing diluted income per ADS was 628,282,951.

As of December 31, 2015, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of RMB3.32 billion (US$513 million) and held-to-maturity securities of RMB1.81 billion (US$279 million).

For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, net cash from operating activities was RMB1.61 billion (US$248 million).

Full Year 2015 Financial Results

Total net revenues increased by 74% year over year for the full year of 2015 to RMB40.20 billion (US$6.21 billion) from RMB23.13 billion in the prior year, primarily driven by growth in the number of new active customers, total active customers, total orders, as well as the increasing revenue contribution from the mobile platform.

Income from operations for the full year of 2015 increased by 148% to RMB2.07 billion (US$320 million) from RMB834 million in the prior year due to the growing scale of the Company's operations and decrease in fulfillment and general and administrative expenses as a percentage of total net revenue. Operating margin increased to 5.2% from 3.6% in the prior year.

Non-GAAP income from operations for the full year of 2015 increased by 108% to RMB2.64 billion (US$407 million) from RMB1.27 billion in the prior year. Non-GAAP operating income margin increased to 6.6% from 5.5% in the prior year.

Business Outlook

For the first quarter of 2016, the Company expects its total net revenue to be between RMB11.8 billion and RMB12.3 billion, representing a year-over-year growth rate of approximately 37% to 43%. These forecasts reflect the Company's current and preliminary view on the market and operational conditions, which is subject to change.

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.

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 per diluted ADS, non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income margin, and non-GAAP operating income margin, 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 per diluted ADS is non-GAAP net income divided by weighted average number of diluted 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 income margin is non-GAAP net income as a percentage of total net revenue. 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. 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. 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.

[6]

The prior year period figures of active customers and total orders in this release have also been revised to reflect the broadened definitions as explained in footnotes 1 and 2 above to ensure comparability.
