Senmiao Technology Reports Fiscal 2021 Second Quarter Financial Results

CHENGDU, China, Nov. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Senmiao Technology Limited ("Senmiao") (Nasdaq: AIHS), a provider of automobile transaction and related services targeting the online ride-hailing industry in China as well as its own online ride-hailing platform, today announced financial results for the fiscal 2021 second quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Xi Wen, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of Senmiao, "We were pleased that the proactive measures taken by our team in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic began to gain traction as we progressed through the third quarter. While the negative year-over-year impact on our operations is apparent, we saw considerable improvement in demand for our services during the second quarter and into the current fiscal third quarter. We transitioned many of the vehicles tendered to us by ride-hailing drivers who exited the business in the first quarter into rental vehicles during the past few months, which became a source of revenue as sales options diminished in the first half of the year.  We are now starting to see the market recover, and believe we can offer excellent optionality to drivers through sales, leasing, and rental selections."

Mr. Wen continued, "Our goal has been to become a total solution provider for ride-sharing drivers, beginning in our two core markets, Chengdu and Changsha. In recent weeks, we have strengthened this value proposition through cooperation with BYD to offer electric vehicles with financing and leasing options to drivers in our core markets; and a collaboration with Luxingtong for the provision of a wide array of telematics and safety solutions for our drivers. In addition, we recently launched our own ride-hailing platform in Chengdu and have seen the number of riders utilizing the service accelerating daily as we build greater brand recognition."

Mr. Wen concluded, "The impact of COVID-19 on our business model was stark and rapid. We were forced into situations where we needed to ensure the strength of our balance sheet and be adaptable to a new and changing paradigm in the Chinese ride-sharing market. While undertaking these changes was difficult in the short-term, we are now starting to see the benefits of the hard decisions we made. Our focus in the near term will be to improve our online ride-hailing platform with further enhancements for both drivers and riders, while seeking partnerships that can strengthen our value proposition for new drivers. Ultimately, we believe that our efforts will continue to position Senmiao well in Chengdu and Changsha, and position us for potential growth in new markets next year."

Revenues

Total revenues were $1,390,396 for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to $5,885,287 in the same period last year and $1,146,916 for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The decline from the prior year was largely due to the impact of COVID-19 which resulted in a significant decrease in the number of facilitated new automobile purchases and a significant number of ride-hailing drivers exiting the ride-hailing business and tendering their vehicles to Senmiao for sublease and sale.

As the ride-hailing markets in Chengdu and Changsha gradually recovered from the impact of COVID-19 beginning in April 2020, Senmiao also experienced a decrease in the number of automobiles tendered to it by the ride-hailing drivers exiting the business during the quarter ended September 30, 2020 as compared with prior quarters.

Senmiao also reported an increase in the monthly installments collected from automobile sale and leasing customers in the three months ended September 30, 2020, as compared with the three months ended June 30, 2020. Earlier in 2020, a higher number of ride-hailing drivers delayed their monthly installment payments as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Company has seen a gradual improvement in collections throughout the year.

Senmiao strategically shifted its business focus to include automobile rental options for ride-hailing drivers as a measure of creating additional revenue. The automobile rental business generated an income of $787,955 for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

As a result of the gradual recovery of the ride-hailing industry, coupled with Senmiao's recent partnerships and proactive measures to address the changing market conditions, Senmiao expects revenue to increase in the third and fourth quarters of its fiscal year 2021.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues were $994,515 for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, as compared with $4,709,184 during the same period last year. The decline was primarily due to the decrease in the number of automobiles sold.

Gross Profit

Gross profit was $395,881, or approximately 28.5% gross margin, for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to $1,176,103, or approximately 20.0% gross margin, in the prior year period. 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $2,749,209 for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 as compared with $1,137,801 during the same period last year. The increase mainly consists of an increase of $560,274 in amortization of automobiles which were tendered to Senmiao but have not been sub-leased or sold, an increase of $336,158 in salary and employee benefits as Senmiao's employees increased from 158 to 203, an increase of $599,170 in professional service fees such as financial, legal and market consulting, and an increase of $115,806 in advertising and promotion,  rental and other office expenses.

Net Loss

Net loss from Senmiao's continuing operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was $2,607,165, compared to net income of $1,862,365 for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, , which mainly resulted from the decrease in revenue, decrease in gross profit and increase in selling, general and administrative expenses as stated in prior section as well as gain in the change of the fair values of derivative liabilities recorded for the three months ended September 30, 2020.

Loss per Share

Loss per share for continuing operations was $0.06 based on a weighted average number of basic and diluted common stock of 37,802,840, as compared to earnings per share of $0.06 based on a weighted average number of basic and diluted common stock of 28,237,430.

Financial Position

As of September 30, 2020, Senmiao had cash and cash equivalents of $4,394,019 as compared with $833,888 as of March 31, 2020 for its continuing operations. Total stockholders' equity was $2,782,424 as of September 30, 2020, compared to $1,472,357 as of March 31, 2020.

Impact of COVID-19

The COVID-19 outbreak continued to materially adversely affect Senmiao's business operations, financial condition and operating results in the quarter ended September 30, 2020, including but not limited to, decrease in revenues, slower collection of accounts receivable and additional allowance for doubtful accounts. However, as the ride-hailing markets in Chengdu and Changsha are gradually recovering from the impact of COVID-19, Senmiao expects its business to improve during the remainder of its current fiscal year ending March 31, 2021.

Further information regarding Senmiao's results of operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 can be found in Senmiao's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
