  • As a leader in the global UAM industry, EHang carried out trial or demo flights (including passenger-carrying flights) in 15 cities across China and Europe in 2019 to showcase the UAM applications. These cities include Guangzhou, Taizhou, Suzhou, Hangzhou, Chongqing, Yantai, Shenyang, Changchun, Dalian, Harbin, Shijiazhuang, Yangjiang, Turpan and Kashgar in China and Vienna in Europe.
     
  • EHang established partnerships on UAM with city governments in China and Europe in 2019, including Guangzhou in China and Linz in Austria.  The Company expects to establish more city partnerships in 2020 to expand its UAM footprint globally.
     
  • As the first company approved for the passenger-grade AAV airworthiness certification pilot program by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and a member of the CAAC Special Expert Taskforce, EHang has been playing an important role in developing standards and regulations in China, such as the Provisional Administrative Measures for Trial Operations of Special Types of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.
     
  • In October 2019, the Company signed an agreement to establish a command-and-control center for unmanned aerial system traffic management (UTM) at Heydar Aliyev International Airport in Baku, Azerbaijan, first of its kind globally.
     
  • Under a strategic partnership with Vodafone GmbH established in October 2019, Vodafone will provide 5G connectivity to EHang AAVs for UAM applications in Europe and the parties will cooperate in the development of a UAM ecosystem in Europe.
     
  • EHang hired Mr. Edward Xu, the Ex-Head of Asia Transportation Research at Morgan Stanley, as its Chief Strategy Officer to lead the strategic planning initiatives in UAM.

Mr. Huazhi Hu, EHang’s Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer commented: “In December 2019, EHang successfully completed its IPO on Nasdaq and became the world’s first publicly traded UAM company, which was a milestone achievement not only for EHang but also for the whole industry. As a new public company, EHang delivered record high quarterly results with impressive financial and operating performance. Our revenues grew significantly, gross margin continued to increase and we achieved first ever quarterly positive operating cash flow and operating profit. Such achievements reflect our strong competitive advantages arising from our global leadership in the UAM industry. Our business is experiencing some short-term turbulence from the COVID-19 outbreak. These include absence and late return of frontline workers, delayed fulfillment across our supply chain, and the short-term disruption on some of our customers’ industries such as tourism. However, this has also created new opportunities for us to explore, such as emergency delivery and rescue. We are confident in the long-term growth and robustness of our business. We are very optimistic about the future of the global UAM industry, which is expected to reach US$1.5 trillion by 2040 according to Morgan Stanley. We are confident that we will keep our leadership in this promising industry.”

Mr. Hu continued, “We are the first to enter into commercialization in the global industry. Our first-mover advantage has helped us be a pioneer in commercializing AAVs and establishing market standards.  Our breakthroughs in the regulatory front, both in China and internationally (e.g. having obtained the first flight permit for the EHang 216 AAV by the Federal Administration of Aviation (FAA) in the US and the first flight permit for the EHang 216 AAV by the Civil Aviation Authority in Norway), have also underpinned our industry leadership and enhanced our customers’ confidence globally. Leveraging all these, we aim to not just be a technology product provider but a leading UAM platform company offering a comprehensive suite of solutions and services to develop an integrated UAM ecosystem. We look forward to building more partnerships with other businesses, city governments, regulators and investors globally to achieve this strategic goal and benefiting together from fast growing demands for UAM globally.”

Fourth Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Revenues

Total revenues were RMB54.7 million (US$7.9 million), up 421.4% year over year, and up 57.4% sequentially. Growth was driven by the Company’s core business of air mobility solutions, which represented 67.9% of total revenues.  Sales of the EHang 216, the Company’s flagship passenger-grade AAV, reached 26 units compared with none in the same period of 2018.

Costs of revenues

Costs of revenues were RMB21.5 million (US$3.1 million), up 367.1% year over year, and up 37.1% sequentially, primarily due to the increased volume of AAVs sold.

Gross profit

Gross profit was RMB33.2 million (US$4.8 million), up 463.9% from RMB5.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 and up 74.1% from RMB19.1 million in the prior quarter.

Gross margin was 60.7%, up 4.6 percentage points from 56.1% in the fourth quarter of 2018 and up 5.8 percentage points from 54.9% in the prior quarter.  Margin increased due to favorable revenue mix, as the Company derived a greater proportion of revenues from sales of higher-margin AAVs and other high margin solutions. 
             
Operating expenses   

Total operating expenses were RMB33.0 million (US$4.7 million), up 7.2% from RMB30.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, and up 10.0% from RMB30.0 million in the prior quarter. Operating expenses as a percentage of total revenues was 60.3%, compared with 293.3% in the fourth quarter of 2018 and 86.3% in the prior quarter. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to higher sales and marketing expenses as the Company has entered the commercialization phase of EHang 216, its flagship passenger-grade AAV product, and higher research and development expenses as a result of continuous efforts in product development.

  • Sales and marketing expenses were RMB8.2 million (US$1.2 million), up 54.1% from RMB5.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, and up 32.4% from RMB6.2 million in the prior quarter. The increase in sales and marketing expense was mainly due to higher advertising and promotion expenses, as well as higher employee compensation and travel expenses related to the Company’s increased marketing efforts to promote air mobility solutions globally.
     
  • General and administration expenses were RMB9.4 million (US$1.3 million), down 23.3% from RMB12.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 and down 3.4% from RMB9.7 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year decrease was mainly due to higher professional expenses incurred in the fourth quarter of last year when the Company started to prepare for a potential initial public offering.
     
  • Research and development expenses were RMB15.5 million (US$2.2 million), up 16.6% from RMB13.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 and up 9.5% from RMB14.1 million in the prior quarter. The increase was mainly due to higher research and development human and material expenses as the Company continued to strengthen its product development efforts.

Adjusted operating expenses were RMB31.4 million (US$4.5 million), representing an increase of 21.3% from RMB25.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 and an increase of 16.8% from RMB26.8 million in the prior quarter.  Adjusted operating expenses as a percentage of total revenues was 57.3%, compared with 246.4% in the fourth quarter of 2018 and 77.3% in the prior quarter.

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release contains statements that may constitute “forward-looking” statements pursuant to the “safe harbor” provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as “will,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “aims,” “future,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimates,” “likely to” and similar statements. Management has based these forward-looking statements on its current expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections. While they believe these expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections are reasonable, such forward-looking statements are only predictions and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond management's control. These statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause EHang's actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.

Accounting Pronouncement

The Company adopted ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)”, using the modified retrospective transition approach beginning January 1, 2019. The adoption did not have a significant impact on the Company’s operating results for the three months and the year ended December 31, 2019 and the comparable periods.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses adjusted operating profit/loss, adjusted net income/loss, adjusted operating expenses, adjusted basic and diluted net income/loss per ordinary share and adjusted basic and diluted net income/loss per ADSs (the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”) in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. There was no income tax impact on the Company’s non-GAAP adjustments because the non-GAAP adjustments are usually recorded in entities located in tax-free jurisdictions, such as the Cayman Islands.

The Company believes that the Non-GAAP Financial Measures help identify underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be distorted by the effects of items such as share-based compensation expenses that are included in their comparable GAAP measures. The Company believes that the Non-GAAP Financial Measures provide useful information about its operating results, enhance the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by its management members in their financial and operational decision-making.

Each of the Non-GAAP Financial Measures should not be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to its comparable GAAP measure, operating profit margin and net margin or any other measure of performance or as an indicator of the Company’s operating performance. Investors are encouraged to review the Company’s most directly comparable GAAP measures in conjunction with the Non-GAAP Financial Measures. The Non-GAAP Financial Measures 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 its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Exchange Rate

This press release contains translations of certain RMB amounts into U.S. dollars (“USD”) at specified rates solely for the convenience of the reader. Unless otherwise stated, all translations from RMB to USD were made at the rate of RMB6.9618 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate in effect on December 31, 2019 in the H.10 statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board.

The unaudited financial information set out in this earnings release is preliminary and subject to potential adjustments. Adjustments to the consolidated financial statements may be identified when audit work has been performed for the Company’s year-end audit, which could result in significant differences from this preliminary unaudited financial information.
