  • Total net revenue increased by 63% to RMB8.67 billion (US$1.36 billion) from RMB5.33 billion in the prior year period.
  • Gross profit increased by 63% to RMB2.16 billion (US$339 million) from RMB1.33 billion in the prior year period. Gross margin remained stable at 24.9%, as compared to the prior year period.
  • Income from operations increased by 241% to RMB436 million (US$69 million) from RMB128 million in the prior year period. Operating margin increased to 5.0% from 2.4% in the prior year period.
  • Non-GAAP income from operations[1] increased by 131% to RMB587 million (US$92 million) from RMB254 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP operating margin[2] increased to 6.8% from 4.8% in the prior year period.
  • Net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders increased by 90% to RMB317 million (US$50 million) from RMB167 million in the prior year period. Net income margin attributable to Vipshop's shareholders increased to 3.7% from 3.1% in the prior year period.
  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders[3] increased by 62% to RMB453 million (US$71 million) from RMB279 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP net income margin attributable to Vipshop's shareholders[4] remained stable at 5.2%, as compared to the prior year period.  

Mr. Eric Shen, chairman and chief executive officer of Vipshop, stated, "Even though we are disappointed that we didn't achieve our revenue guidance for the third quarter 2015, we firmly believe that the business fundamentals and growth dynamics of our platform, in terms of orders, customers and revenues, remain solid. We added 5.4 million new active customers[5] in the third quarter, bringing our number of total active customers to 14.6 million. Customer loyalty and buying activity also continued to strengthen during the quarter: Customers made 3.1 purchases and spent RMB595 on average, up from 2.9 purchases and RMB541, respectively, in the prior year period; and 92.5% of our total orders were made by repeat customers. Our GMV from mobile rose to 79% in the third quarter, up from 57% one year ago, further demonstrating the strong appeal of our flash sale offering to on-the-go shoppers. Our cross-border e-commerce business continued to ramp up, with 164% sequential growth. Overall, our cross-border initiatives, supplier and consumer financing programs and logistical enhancements further characterize our platform as an ecosystem designed to drive value for global brands and customers alike."

Mr. Donghao Yang, chief financial officer of Vipshop, commented, "Unfortunately, our forecast for the third quarter did not hold up due to unexpected seasonal patterns this year especially late into the quarter, as well as new customer acquisition growth being slightly softer than expected. This was partly due to our conservative approach in optimizing our marketing budget allocation and not investing more aggressively into new user acquisition, leading us to miss our top-line guidance. However, we still managed to increase revenues by over 63% year over year, as well as expand our operating margin to 5.0% from 2.4% in the prior year period. By the close of the third quarter, our warehouse capacity reached 1.6 million square meters, and our total orders covered by our network of in-house and invested couriers reached 80%; in both cases we met our year-end targets one quarter ahead of time. We are also announcing that our board of directors has given us an additional authorization to repurchase up to $300 million of our ADSs. We believe that this initiative demonstrates our confidence in the long-term outlook for our business. Looking ahead, we remain confident in our ability to continue to scale our platform in terms of revenue, order and customer growth as well as logistical expansion and optimization, as we build upon our proven model and create enduring value for our shareholders."

REVENUE  

Total net revenue for the third quarter of 2015 increased by 63% to RMB8.67 billion (US$1.36 billion) from RMB5.33 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.

NET INCOME

Exchange loss was RMB57 million (US$9 million), as compared to an exchange gain of RMB21 million in the prior year period, primarily driven by the weakening value of the Renminbi relative to the U.S. dollar.

Net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders increased by 90% to RMB317 million (US$50 million) from RMB167 million in the prior year period. Net income margin attributable to Vipshop's shareholders increased to 3.7% from 3.1% in the prior year period.

Non-GAAP net income margin attributable to Vipshop's shareholders remained stable at 5.2%, as compared to the prior year period. The stagnant growth in non-GAAP net income margin was primarily attributable to the relatively large exchange loss in the period. Non-GAAP net income attributable to Vipshop's shareholders per diluted ADS increased to RMB0.76 (US$0.12) from RMB0.47 in the prior year period.  

For the quarter ended September 30, 2015, the Company's weighted average number of ADSs used in computing diluted income per ADS was 599,346,325.

Share Repurchase Program

On November 17, 2015, the Company's board of directors has approved a share repurchase program whereby the Company may purchase its own ADSs with an aggregate value of up to US$300 million over the next 24-month period, ending on November 16, 2017. The Company expects to fund the repurchase out of its existing cash balance, including cash generated from its operations.

The Company expects to effect the proposed share repurchase on the open market at prevailing market prices, in negotiated transactions off the market, and/or in other legally permissible means from time to time as market conditions warrant in compliance with applicable requirements of Rule 10b5-1 and/or Rule 10b-18 under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, at times and in such amounts as the Company deems appropriate. The share repurchase program does not obligate the Company to acquire any particular number of ADSs and may be suspended, terminated or extended at any time at the Company's discretion without prior notice.

Business Outlook

For the fourth quarter of 2015, the Company expects its total net revenue to be between RMB12.0 billion and RMB12.5 billion, representing a year-over-year growth rate of approximately 43% to 49%.

Further information regarding these and other risks is included in Vipshop's filings with the SEC.

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 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 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 and amortization of intangible assets, which 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.
