"Bright Scholar continues to perform well as we continue to successfully execute against our strategies" said Jerry He, Bright Scholar's Chief Executive Officer, "We are pleased with our robust revenue growth of 39.7%, and also adjusted gross profit, adjusted operating income, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income increased by 37.6%, 39.0%, 34.7% and 39.9%, respectively, compared to the same quarter of last fiscal year. Our high growth is driven by increased traction in our core businesses and increased revenue contribution from our new business segment. The performance is a reflection of our commitment to quality education and to delivering the best academic results for our students. As of the release date, which is still early in the admission season, approximately 60% of the students in the 2019 graduating class of our international schools have received 356 offers from global top 50 institutions including one from University of Chicago and four from Oxbridge. We expect that many more students will receive offers from these top institutions as the admission cycle continues."

"The track record of academic success has further strengthened our brand which in turn, drives enrollment and network expansion. The average student enrollment for the first fiscal quarter was 41,423, representing an increase of 22.1% as compared to the first fiscal quarter of 2018, with blended utilization at 70.9%. With the opening of three new kindergartens, our network of schools has increased to 68 as of December 31, 2018.

We continue to make great progress in strategic investments and collaborations, which underpin our plan to accelerate our business growth. As of the release date, we have completed three strategic acquisitions that represent major milestones in expanding our global footprint and enhancing our complementary services. These include our first overseas school, Bournemouth Collegiate School in the UK; the renowned Zhejiang-based art training institution, Hangzhou Impression; and the overseas career counseling company, Chengdu Yinzhe, which owns the famous brand "DreambigCareer". We have also entered into strategic co-operation with Changchun Normal University. Bright Scholar plans to provide approximately 200 internship positions for and recruit approximately 300 teachers in Changchun Normal University in the next few years. Our deep collaboration with Country Garden is crucial to fast expanding our network deploying an asset-light model. As of December 31, 2018, we have entered into agreements with Country Garden to operate a total of 13 kindergartens and two bilingual schools with a total capacity of approximately 6,900 students." 

"Looking ahead, we expect to expedite our growth by executing our two strategies. First, to pursue our organic growth initiatives in optimizing operation efficiency; improving utilization; broadening service offerings and capitalizing synergistic opportunities from our acquired businesses. Second, to pursue strategic domestic and overseas investments and acquisitions for the acceleration of our business scale. Bright Scholar has the right strategies, service portfolio and people in place to spur the next phase of our growth and we are fully committed to delivering sustainable long-term value for our students, employees, shareholders and other stakeholders."

This accounts for 33.6% of total revenues as compared to 37.5% in the same period of last fiscal year.

Complementary: Revenue for the quarter was RMB99.6 million, representing a 244.7% increase from RMB28.9 million, accounting for 15.3% of total revenues as compared to 6.3% in the same period of last fiscal year. The revenue from Can-Achieve, an international education consulting company, contributed RMB62.4 million to our revenue for the first fiscal quarter ended November 30, 2018.

*Cost of Revenues*

Cost of revenues for the quarter was RMB353.3 million, representing a 42.2% increase from RMB248.4 million in the same period of the last fiscal year. This was primarily due to an increase in staff costs to RMB223.3 million, as we increased the headcount and the compensation level of teaching staff and instructors to support the expanding network of schools. The average number of teachers and instructors rose across all business lines by 17.0% from 4,012 to 4,693 during the comparison periods.

International Schools: Cost of revenues for the quarter was RMB111.3 million, representing a 25.0% increase from RMB89.0 million in the same period of last fiscal year.

Kindergartens: Cost of revenues for the quarter was RMB68.0 million, representing a 27.1% increase from RMB53.5 million in the same period of last fiscal year.

Complementary: Cost of revenues for the quarter was RMB67.4 million, representing a 278.4% increase from RMB17.8 million in the same period of last fiscal year. The increase was primarily attributed to the inclusion of the cost of RMB38.5 million from Can-Achieve.

*Gross Profit, Gross Margin and Adjusted Gross Profit*

Gross profit for the quarter was RMB296.6 million, representing a 36.8% increase from RMB216.8 million in the same period of last fiscal year. Gross margin for the quarter was 45.6%, as compared to 46.6% in the same period of last fiscal year. 

Adjusted gross profit for the quarter was RMB299.3 million, representing a 37.6% increase from RMB217.4 million in the same quarter of last fiscal year. Adjusted gross margin was 46.1% for the quarter as compared to 46.7% in the same period of last fiscal year.

Complementary: Gross profit for the quarter was RMB32.2 million, representing a 190.5% increase from RMB11.1 million in the same period of last fiscal year. Gross margin for the quarter was 32.3%, as compared to 38.4% in the same period of the last fiscal year. This was primarily due to the decreased gross margin of Elan as a result of incremental staff cost for two new centers and the increased rental cost for compliance with regulation.

*Selling, General and Administrative Expenses** and Adjusted SG&A Expenses ^(6)*

Total selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter were RMB121.6 million, representing a 51.0% increase from RMB80.6 million in the same period of the last fiscal year. This accounted for 18.7% of total revenues as compared to 17.3% in the same period of last fiscal year. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily due to,  the increase in the compensation and benefits incurred from additional general and administrative staff members;  employee stock ownership plan ("ESOP") related expenses to retain talent;  the increase in marketing expenses for brand promotion; the costs associated with acquisitions and other professional services to support the business growth as a listed company as well as the incremental SG&A expenses incurred from acquired businesses.

Adjusted SG&A expenses^ (6) for the quarter were RMB115.1 million, representing a 42.9% increase from RMB80.6 million in the same period of last fiscal year. This accounted for 17.7% of total revenues as compared to 17.3% in the same period of last fiscal year.

(6) Adjusted SG&A Expenses are defined as selling, general and administrative expenses excluding share-based compensation expense.

*CONVENIENCE TRANSLATION*

The Company's business is primarily conducted in China and the significant majority of revenues generated are denominated in Renminbi ("RMB"). However, periodic reports made to shareholders will include current period amounts translated into U.S. dollars using the prevailing exchange rates at the balance sheet date, for the convenience of readers. Translations of balances in the condensed combined and consolidated balance sheets, and the related condensed combined and consolidated statements of operations, and cash flows from RMB into U.S. dollars as of and for the first fiscal quarter ended November 30, 2018 are solely for the convenience of the readers and were calculated at the rate of US$1.00=RMB6.9558, representing the noon buying rate set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the U.S. Federal Reserve Board on November 30, 2018. No representation is made that the RMB amounts could have been, or could be, converted, realized or settled into US$ at that rate on November 30, 2018 or at any other rate.

*NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES*

In evaluating our business, we consider and use certain non-GAAP measures, including primarily adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income/(loss), as supplemental measures to review and assess our operating performance. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We define adjusted gross profit/(loss) as gross profit/(loss) excluding amortization of intangible assets and adjusted gross margin as adjusted gross profit/(loss) divided by revenue. We define adjusted EBITDA as net income/(loss) excluding interest income, net; income tax expense/benefit; depreciation and amortization; and share-based compensation expense and adjusted net income/(loss) as net income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation expense and amortization of intangible assets. We define adjusted SG&A as selling, general and administration expense excluding share-based compensation expense and adjusted operating income/(loss) as net operating income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation expense and amortization of intangible assets. Additionally, we define adjusted net earnings per share attributable to ordinary shareholders, basic and diluted, as adjusted net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders (net income/(loss) to ordinary shareholders excluding share-based compensation expense and amortization of intangible assets) divided by the weighted average number of basic and diluted ordinary shares or American depositary shares (each an "ADS"), each representing one Class A ordinary share of the Company, on an as-converted basis.

We incur amortization expense of intangible assets related to various acquisitions that have been made in recent years. These intangible assets are valued at the time of acquisition, are then amortized over a period of several years after the acquisition. We believe that exclusion of these expenses allows greater comparability of operating results that are consistent over time for the Company's newly-acquired and long-held businesses as the related intangibles does not have significant connection to the growth of the business. Therefore we provide additional exclusion of amortization of intangible assets to redefine adjusted operating income/(loss), adjusted net income/(loss), and adjusted net earnings per share attributable to ordinary shareholders, basic and diluted.

We present the non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by our management to evaluate our operating performance and formulate business plans. Such non-GAAP measures, including adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income/(loss), enable our management to assess our operating results without considering the impact of non-cash charges, including depreciation and amortization and share-based compensation expense, and without considering the impact of non-operating items such as interest income, net; and income tax expense/benefit. We also believe that the use of the non-GAAP measure facilitates investors' assessment of our operating performance.

The non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. One of the key limitations of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect our operations. Interest income, net; income tax expense/benefit; depreciation and amortization; and share-based compensation expense have been and may continue to be incurred in our business and are not reflected in the presentation of these non-GAAP measures, including adjusted EBITDA or adjusted net income/(loss). Further, these non-GAAP measures may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.
