EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted profit are non-IFRS financial measures. You should not consider EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted profit as a substitute for or superior to net income prepared in accordance with IFRS.

Other Developments

The Company continued to expand our footprint. On December 30, 2019, the Company announced the openings of two new satellite clinics – Fenghua Pengai Aesthetic Clinic and Deqing Pengai Aesthetic Clinic, in each of which the Company holds a majority equity interest. In March 2020, the Company entered into definitive agreements (the “Agreements”) to acquire controlling interest in two treatment centers.

The Company is firmly committed to its customers and community. In January 2020, the Company launched the “Four Beauties,” a new set of hyaluronic acid-based skincare products. In February 2020, the Company carried out a charity campaign and made donation of approximately RMB1.3 million of medical supplies to help combat COVID-19. Through its treatment centers across the country, the Company intensified the efforts to help people in need. The Company organized charity fund raising activities, collected and donated approximately RMB0.2 million from its employees and their family members, donated protective masks, thermometers and other medical supplies to the community, and allocated medical supplies for patients and healthcare personnel battling at the frontline.

Business Outlook

While the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic and its negative impact to market demand and the Company’s business operations still cannot be conclusively and accurately estimated at this time since there is still uncertainty of possible COVID-19 outbreak in the future, the Company currently expects that its revenue will gradually recover in the second quarter of 2020. Such expectation reflects the current and preliminary view of the Company’s management team based on the information available at the time, and may be subject to changes. The Company will continue to monitor and evaluate the development of the pandemic, and the resulting financial impact on the Company.
