Recent Developments

Deliveries in July and August 2019

  • Deliveries in July were 837 vehicles, consisting of 164 ES8s and 673 ES6s. Deliveries during the month were impacted by the Company’s voluntary battery recall for 4,803 ES8s, as the Company prioritized battery manufacturing capacity which significantly affected production and deliveries.
  • Deliveries in August were 1,943 vehicles, consisting of 146 ES8s and 1,797 ES6s, and representing 132.1% sequential improvement.

Convertible Note Subscription Agreements with Tencent and Bin Li

  • The Company has entered into convertible note subscription agreements with an affiliate of Tencent Holdings Limited (“Tencent”) and Mr. Bin Li, chairman and chief executive officer of the Company (together with Tencent, the “Investors”), pursuant to which NIO will issue and sell convertible notes (“Notes”) in an aggregate principal amount of US$200 million to the Investors through a private placement. Consummation of the placement of the Notes is subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions and is expected to close before the end of September.
  • Tencent and Mr. Li will each subscribe for US$100 million principal amount of the convertible notes, each in two equally split tranches. The Notes issued in the first tranche will mature in 360 days, bear no interest, and require the Company to pay a premium at 2% of the principal amount at maturity. The Notes issued in the second tranche will mature in three years, bear no interest, and require the Company to pay a premium at 6% of the principal amount at maturity. The 360-day Notes will be convertible into Class A Ordinary Shares (or ADSs) of the Company at a conversion price of US$2.98 per ADS at the holder’s option from the 15th day immediately prior to maturity, and the 3-year Notes will be convertible into Class A Ordinary Shares (or ADSs) of the Company at a conversion price of US$3.12 per ADS at the holder’s option from the first anniversary of the issuance date. The holders of the 3-year Notes will have the right to require the Company to repurchase for cash all of the Notes or any portion thereof on February 1, 2022.
 

CEO Comments

“During the second quarter of 2019, we delivered a total of 3,553 ES8 and ES6 vehicles. This was followed by 837 units in July and 1,943 units in August, bringing our total aggregate deliveries to 21,670 as of August 31, 2019,” said William Bin Li, founder, chairman and chief executive officer of NIO. “Our ES6, the Company’s 5-seater high-performance premium electric SUV, began rolling off the production line in June, and we are ramping up the production and deliveries for the coming months. In an environment of softer macro-economic and auto market conditions, we continue to work hard to expand our market penetration. Starting in October, we will begin delivering the ES6 and ES8 with an 84-kWh battery pack, extending their NEDC driving range to 510 km and 430 km, respectively. Going forward, we will continue to enhance sales by strengthening our value proposition through technology advancement.” 

“In response to the overall tempered market conditions, we are also working hard to maximize returns on our resources and have implemented comprehensive efficiency and cost control measures across the organization. These measures aim to further improve efficiency and streamline operations within our sales and service network and R&D activities. We target to reduce our global headcount to be around 7,800 by the end of the third quarter from over 9,900 in January 2019, and aim to further pursue a leaner operation through additional restructuring and spinning off some non-core businesses by year end,” Mr. Li concluded.

Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2019

Revenues

  • Vehicle sales in the second quarter of 2019 were RMB1,414.5 million (US$206.1 million), representing a decrease of 7.9% from the first quarter of 2019. The decrease in vehicle sales over the first quarter of 2019 was mainly due to the decrease in sales volume in the second quarter of 2019 caused by the electric vehicle (EV) subsidy reduction announced in late March and the slowdown of macro-economic conditions in China which has been exacerbated by the US-China trade war.
  • Other sales in the second quarter of 2019 were RMB94.0 million (US$13.7 million), representing a decrease of 2.0% from the first quarter of 2019. The decrease in other sales over the first quarter of 2019 was mainly attributed to the sales decline in charging piles, in line with the decline in vehicle sales.
  • Total revenues in the second quarter of 2019 were RMB1,508.6 million (US$219.7 million), representing a decrease of 7.5% from the first quarter of 2019.
 

Cost of Sales and Gross Margin

  • Cost of sales in the second quarter of 2019 was RMB2,012.8 million (US$293.2 million), representing an increase of 8.8% from the first quarter of 2019. The increase in cost of sales over the first quarter of 2019 was mainly caused by accrued recall costs in relation to the Company’s voluntary recall of 4,803 vehicles announced on June 27, 2019. Total recall costs accrued in the second quarter of 2019 were RMB339.1 (US$49.4 million), including RMB283.3 million (US$41.3 million) recorded in cost of vehicle sales and RMB55.8 million (US$8.1 million) recorded in cost of other sales, respectively. Excluding accrued recall costs, cost of sales in the second quarter was RMB1,673.7 million (US$243.8 million), representing a decrease of 9.6% from the first quarter of 2019.
  • Vehicle margin in the second quarter of 2019 was negative 24.1%, compared with negative 7.2% in the first quarter of 2019. The decrease of vehicle margin was mainly driven by the accrued recall costs in relation to the Company’s voluntary recall of 4,803 vehicles announced on June 27, 2019. Excluding accrued recall costs, vehicle margin in the second quarter was negative 4.0%.
  • Gross margin in the second quarter of 2019 was negative 33.4%, compared with negative 13.4% in the first quarter of 2019, which was mainly influenced by the decrease of vehicle margin. Excluding accrued recall costs, gross margin in the second quarter was negative 10.9%.
 

Operating Expenses 

  • Research and development expenses in the second quarter of 2019 were RMB1,300.5 million (US$189.4 million), representing an increase of 20.6% from the first quarter of 2019 and an increase of 70.0% from the second quarter of 2018. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, adjusted research and development expenses (non-GAAP) were RMB1,281.7 million (US$186.7 million), representing an increase of 22.5% from the first quarter of 2019 and an increase of 68.3% from the second quarter of 2018. The increase in research and development expenses over the first quarter of 2019 was primarily attributed to increased rigorous testing activities of ES6 before its mass production in the second quarter of 2019.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2019 were RMB1,421.4 million (US$207.0 million), representing an increase of 7.7% from the first quarter of 2019 and an increase of 48.6% from the second quarter of 2018. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses (non-GAAP) were RMB1,351.3 million (US$196.8 million), representing an increase of 9.5% from the first quarter of 2019 and an increase of 50.7% from the second quarter of 2018. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses over the first quarter of 2019 was primarily driven by the Company’s marketing expenditure on the Shanghai auto show and ES6 test drive campaign in the second quarter.
 

Loss from Operations

  • Loss from operations in the second quarter of 2019 was RMB3,226.1 million (US$469.9 million), representing an increase of 23.2% from the first quarter of 2019 and an increase of 72.1% from the second quarter of 2018. Excluding accrued recall costs and expenses, loss from operations in the second quarter was RMB2,869.7 million (US$418.0 million). Excluding share-based compensation expenses, adjusted loss from operations (non-GAAP) was RMB3,133.9 million (US$456.5 million), representing an increase of 25.5% from the first quarter of 2019 and an increase of 73.0% from the second quarter of 2018.
 

Share-based Compensation Expenses

  • Share-based compensation expenses in the second quarter of 2019 were RMB92.2 million (US$13.4 million), representing a decrease of 22.9% from the first quarter of 2019 and an increase of 45.3% from the second quarter of 2018. The decrease in share-based compensation expenses over the first quarter of 2019 was primarily due to the part of the share-based compensation expenses that are recognized using the accelerated method, under which the expenses decrease gradually over the vesting period.
 

Net Loss and Earnings Per Share

  • Net loss was RMB3,285.8 million (US$478.6 million) in the second quarter of 2019, representing an increase of 25.2% from the first quarter of 2019 and an increase of 83.1% from the second quarter of 2018. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, adjusted net loss (non-GAAP) was RMB3,193.6 million (US$465.2 million) in the second quarter of 2019, representing an increase of 27.5% from the first quarter of 2019 and an increase of 84.5% from the second quarter of 2018.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

The Company uses non-GAAP measures, such as adjusted cost of sales (non-GAAP), adjusted research and development expenses (non-GAAP), adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses (non-GAAP), adjusted loss from operations (non-GAAP), adjusted net loss (non-GAAP), adjusted net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders (non-GAAP), adjusted basic and diluted net loss per share (non-GAAP) and adjusted basic and diluted net loss per ADS (non-GAAP), in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. By excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses, accretion on convertible redeemable preferred shares to redemption value and accretion on redeemable non-controlling interests to redemption value, the Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures help identify underlying trends in its business and enhance the overall understanding of the Company’s past performance and future prospects. The Company also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the Company’s management in its financial and operational decision-making.

The non-GAAP financial measures are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP methods of accounting and reporting used by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and when assessing the Company’s operating performance, investors should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for net loss or other consolidated statements of comprehensive loss data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

The Company mitigates these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP performance measures, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company’s performance.

For more information on the non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned “Unaudited Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” set forth at the end of this press release.
