Jian "T.J." Tang, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of iClick, noted: "2020 was another record year for iClick, as we continue to evolve into an integrated Enterprise and Marketing Cloud Platform in China. Our business achieved record results in gross billings, revenues, gross profit and adjusted EBITDA. More importantly, for the first time ever, we reported positive full-year adjusted net income. This is a tremendous corporate achievement, and it occurred in a year when the COVID-19 pandemic greatly affected businesses across the world, including in China."

"We are excited to report another year of rapid growth from our Enterprise Solutions business. Revenue in 2020 from this segment grew by 177% to US$28.9 million from $10.4 million in 2019. Resilient growth in Enterprise Solutions remains a major focus and strategic goal, and we have launched a number of initiatives to ensure this business segment continues its growth trajectory. Marketing Solutions business remains a solid foundation for the Company, with revenue growing by 20% in 2020, a very strong performance given the pandemic's impact."

"While we expect continued growth in both Marketing Solutions and Enterprise Solutions in the coming quarters and beyond, we also expect additional partnerships with other global technology leaders to further complement our product offerings and capabilities, especially in Enterprise Solutions."

"For example, we recently announced a strategic partnership with Baozun, a leading brand e-commerce partner in China, to jointly establish an industry-leading private domain traffic e-commerce solution based on the Tencent ecosystem. Beyond the obvious benefits of partnering with a recognized technology leader to expand our offerings, we also benefit from being able to cross-sell to Baozun's strong brand partners.  This collaboration will accelerate conversion of our existing Marketing Solutions clients to Enterprise SaaS Solutions thanks to the jointly developed turnkey solutions we will be able to provide.  Finally, this partnership allows us to focus our resources on developing the standard SaaS products we will use to penetrate the mid-tier client segment, which is yet another growth initiative for the Enterprise Solutions segment."

"In summary, 2020 was a fantastic year for iClick, especially given the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are excited about our prospects for 2021 and beyond and are resolute in our commitment to growing both the Marketing Solutions and Enterprise Solutions segment organically and via partnerships and investments," T.J. concluded.

Fourth Quarter 2020 Results:

Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 grew to US$78.7 million, up 39% from US$56.7 million for the same period of the prior year, attributable to the increase in contributions from existing Marketing Solutions and Enterprise Solutions business segments.

Revenue from Marketing Solutions grew to US$68.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, up 28% from US$53.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, primarily as the result of growing market demand from specified action marketing campaigns.

Revenue from Enterprise Solutions was US$10.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, up approximately 193% from US$3.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, primarily due to the increasing need for online and offline consumer behavior data integration.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2020 was US$23.3 million, representing a 36% increase compared with US$17.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, mainly due to continued expansion of the Company's Marketing Solutions and contribution from higher-margin Enterprise Solutions.

Total operating expenses were US$24.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, up slightly when compared to US$22.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2019 and mainly attributed to the increase in share-based compensation expense of US$1.9 million.

Operating loss was US$1.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared with an operating loss of US$5.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. This improvement was a result of the strong growth in gross profit that was partially offset by the increase in share-based compensation expense.

Net income totalled US$0.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared with net loss of US$6.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. This improvement was mainly attributed to increased revenue and gross profit.

Net income attributable to the Company's shareholders per basic and diluted ADS for the fourth quarter of 2020 was US$0.0140 and US$0.0132, respectively, compared with a net loss per basic and diluted ADS of US$0.1003 for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2020 was US$5.1 million, compared with US$2.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. For a reconciliation of the Company's adjusted EBITDA from net income/(loss), its most comparable GAAP measure, please refer to "Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" in the accompanying financial tables.

Adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of 2020 was US$2.1 million, compared with US$0.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. For a reconciliation of the Company's adjusted net income from net income/(loss), its most comparable GAAP measure, please refer to "Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" in the accompanying financial tables.

Gross billing[2] for the fourth quarter of 2020 US$219.9 million, compared with US$223.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. This decline was primarily due to the Company's efforts to optimize its client base to achieve better credit control and to retain and attract customers with a strong financial position amid macroeconomic uncertainties.

As of December 31, 2020, the Company had cash and cash equivalents, time deposits and restricted cash of US$94.5 million, compared with US$61.1 million as of December 31, 2019.

Full Year 2020 Results:

Revenue for 2020 was US$254.7 million, an increase of 28% from US$199.4 million in 2019, primarily as a result of the increase in contributions from existing Marketing Solutions and Enterprise Solutions business segments.

Revenue from Marketing Solutions grew to US$225.8 million for 2020, up 20% from US$189.0 million for 2019, primarily as the result of growing market demand from specified action marketing campaigns.

Revenue from Enterprise Solutions was US$28.9 million for 2020, up approximately 177% from US$10.4 million for 2019, primarily due to the increasing need for online and offline consumer behavioral data integration.

Gross profit increased by 29% to US$73.3 million in 2020 from US$56.7 million in 2019, mainly as a result of continued growth of the Company's Marketing Solutions and contribution from higher-margin Enterprise Solutions.

Total operating expenses were US$75.0 million for 2020, compared with US$68.8 million for 2019. The increased expense was resulted primarily from additional operating expenses for new business developments and share-based compensation expenses of US$4.1 million.

Operating loss for 2020 was US$1.8 million, compared with an operating loss of US$12.1 million for 2019. The improved operating loss was a result of strong growth in gross profit, partially offset by the expenses incurred on new business developments and an increase in share-based compensation expenses.

[2] Gross billing is defined as the aggregate dollar amount that clients pay the Company after deducting rebates paid and discounts given to clients.

Net loss totalled US$14.9 million for 2020, compared with US$10.8 million for 2019.  The greater net loss is mainly attributed to fair value losses on convertible notes and derivative liabilities of US$11.5 million and US$4.4 million respectively for 2020, compared with fair value gains on convertible notes of US$0.1 million for 2019, and the increase in share-based compensation expense, which was partially offset by the strong growth in gross profit.

Net loss attributable to the Company's shareholders per basic and diluted ADS for 2020 was US$0.1603 compared with a net loss per basic and diluted ADS of US$0.1686 for 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA for 2020 was US$17.3 million, compared with US$6.0 million for 2019. The increased adjusted EBITDA resulted primarily from an improvement in operating loss as described above. For a reconciliation of the Company's adjusted EBITDA from net loss, its most comparable GAAP measure, please refer to "Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" in the accompanying financial tables.

Adjusted net income for 2020 was US$7.6 million, compared with an adjusted net loss of US$2.1 million for 2019. For a reconciliation of the Company's adjusted net income/(loss) to net loss, its most comparable GAAP measure, please refer to "Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" in the accompanying financial tables.

Gross billing[2] grew to US$677.8 million for 2020, up 6% from 2019. The slight increase was a result of increasing marketers' demand especially from the e-commerce, online entertainment and media, and online education and training verticals.

Share Repurchase Program

On January 15, 2020, the Company announced a share repurchase program in which it may purchase its own ADSs with an aggregate value of up to US$10.0 million over the 12-month period ending on December 29, 2020. On December 10, 2020, the Company announced another share repurchase program in which it may purchase its own ADSs with an aggregate value of up to US$15.0 million from December 30, 2020 to December 31, 2021. As of December 31, 2020, the aggregate value of purchased shares was approximately US$5.7 million.

Outlook

Based on the information available as of the date of this press release, iClick provides the following outlook for the first quarter of 2021 and for the full year 2021:

First Quarter 2021:

  • Revenue is expected to be between US$60 million and US$65 million.
  • Revenue from Enterprise Solutions is estimated to be between US$10.5 million and US$11.5 million.

Full Year 2021:

  • Revenue is expected to be between US$315 million and US$335 million.
  • Revenue from Enterprise Solutions is estimated to be between US$60 million and US$65 million.

The above outlook is based on current market conditions and reflects the Company's preliminary estimates of market and operating conditions, expected foreign exchange fluctuation, and customer demand, which are all subject to change. Please also refer to the factors set out under the section titled "Safe Harbor Statement."

We noted that the advertising budgets for our clients recovered across-the-board during the fourth quarter, as a result of the relaxation of restrictions on economic and social life due to a slowdown of COVID-19 cases in China. Based on the current commercial environment, we anticipate that brands may allocate more of their advertising budgets to mobile and online targeted marketing, with the potential to benefit our mobile and performance-focused Marketing Solutions business. Brands may also see the importance of online and offline consumer behavioural data integration and analysis, which may favour our Enterprise Solutions business in the long run.

With iClick's diversified customer base of stable, top-tier brands, governments' efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus and the rollout of vaccine, we remain cautiously optimistic for 2021. However, outbreaks of COVID-19 around the world may continue to impact market conditions and potentially trigger a longer period of global economic slowdown. This could affect the overall sentiment and advertising budgets of our branding customers, which in turn may impact our Marketing Solution business in the short term. The rapid development and fluidity of the current situation precludes any prediction as to the ultimate adverse impact of COVID-19. Management will continue to closely monitor the outbreak's impact on our operations and financial results this year and will particularly focus on business retention and accounts receivable recoverability.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income/(loss), and diluted adjusted net income/(loss) per ADS, each a non-GAAP financial measure, in evaluating the Company's operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes.

The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income/(loss), and diluted adjusted net income/(loss) per ADS help identify underlying trends in the Company's business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of the expenses and gains that the Company includes in net loss. The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income/(loss) provide useful information about the Company's operating results, enhance the overall understanding of the Company's past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the Company's management in its financial and operational decision-making.

Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income/(loss), and diluted adjusted net income/(loss) per ADS should not be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to net loss or any other measure of performance or as an indicator of the Company's operating performance. Investors are encouraged to review the historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income/(loss), and diluted adjusted net income/(loss) per ADS 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. The Company encourages investors and others to review the Company's financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP results" set forth at the end of this press release.

These non-GAAP financial measures were presented with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures together for facilitating a more comprehensive understanding of operating performance between periods.

[3] The Company adopted ASC 326 using the modified retrospective method started from January 1, 2020, which changes the impairment model for financial assets measured at amortized costs by using a new forward-looking "expected loss" model that replaced the "incurred loss" model and resulted in the earlier recognition of allowances for losses. The adoption of ASC 326 resulted in recognition of allowance for doubtful accounts receivable of US$4.0 million and a corresponding increase in accumulated losses of US$4.0 million on January 1, 2020, for the cumulative effect of adopting ASC 326. The consolidated financial information related to periods prior to January 1, 2020 were not restated, and continue to be reported in accordance with previously applicable GAAP.
