Youdao Reports Summer Business Updates
BEIJING, Sept. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Youdao, Inc. ("Youdao" or the "Company") (NYSE: DAO), a leading intelligent learning company in China, today announced its summer business updates.
Summer Business Updates
Summer is a popular season for Chinese students to enroll in after-school tutoring courses for the coming academic year. Today, the Company is pleased to report that its paid student enrollments* for K-12 courses of Youdao Premium Courses amounted to over 460,000 in the two-month period of July and August 2020, representing an increase of over 500% compared to the corresponding period of 2019.
To take advantage of the tremendous growth potential of China's online education industry, the Company has steadily strengthened its core teaching and content development capabilities. Furthermore, to tap into the summer season opportunity, the Company significantly increased its sales and marketing efforts. While such investments may widen net losses for this ongoing quarter, the Company expects to benefit from these measures in the long run.
Paid student enrollments are subject to future adjustments (such as refunds) and represent only one measure of the Company's performance and should not be relied on as an indicator of our financial results, which depend on a variety of factors. Our financial results will be released when we announce Q3 earnings.
* "paid student enrollments" for a specified period refers to the cumulative number of paid courses enrolled in by the Company's students, including multiple paid courses enrolled in by the same student, after deducting the number of courses the tuition of which were fully refunded.
