KEY DEFINITIONS

  • Store-level operating profit represents revenue less operational costs incurred at the store level, comprising salary-based expense, raw materials and consumables cost, depreciation of right-of-use assets, depreciation of plant and equipment, amortization of intangible assets, variable lease rental payment and short-term rental expenses, utilities expenses, advertising and promotion expenses, store operating and maintenance expenses and other expenses.
  • Store-level operating profit margin is calculated by dividing store-level operating profit by revenue for the same period.
  • Store-level EBITDA is defined as store-level operating profit for the period and adding back depreciation of plant and equipment and amortization of intangible assets in store-level.
  • Store-level EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing Store EBITDA by revenue for the same period.
  • Net new store openings. The number of gross new stores opened during the period minus the number of stores closed during the period.
  • Same-store sales growth (SSSG). The percentage difference in sales generated by same stores across two consecutive periods, where same stores are those stores that have been open for at least 18 months as of the end of latter period, provided that for a given same store in a given period, only the sales it generates after it qualifies as a same store are included in the calculation of SSSG and such sales are compared against the sales generated by the store in the comparable days of the prior period.
  • Average Daily Sales per Store is calculated by dividing revenues generated from relevant store in a particular period by the aggregate number of days of operation for such store in the same period.
  • Average orders per store per day is calculated by dividing the aggregate number of orders placed by total customers in the store for a particular period by the aggregate number of days of operation for such store in the same period.
  • Adjusted Net Loss is defined as profit/(loss) for the period and adding back fair value change of financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss, share-based compensation and listing expenses.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is defined as Adjusted Net Loss for the period and adding back depreciation and amortization (excluding depreciation of right-of-use assets), income tax expense and finance cost, net (excluding net foreign exchange losses on financing activities).

Non-IFRS Measures

To supplement the Group’s consolidated financial statements that are presented in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”), we also use Adjusted Net Loss (non-IFRS measure), Adjusted EBITDA (non-IFRS measure) and Store-level EBITDA (non-IFRS measure) as additional financial measures, which are not required by, or presented in accordance with, IFRS. We believe that these non-IFRS measures facilitate comparisons of operating performance from period to period and company to company. We believe that these measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our results of operations in the same manner as they help our management. However, our presentation of Adjusted Net Loss (non-IFRS measure), Adjusted EBITDA (non-IFRS measure) and Store-level EBITDA (non-IFRS measure) may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. The use of such non-IFRS measures has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation from, or as substitute for analysis of, our results of operations or financial condition as reported under IFRS.
