CEO and CFO Comments

Mr. Xiang Li, founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of Li Auto, commented, “Against the backdrop of a once-in-a-century shift in the automotive industry to smart electric vehicles, the fourth quarter capped off a year of significant growth for our company. We delivered 14,464 Li ONEs during the quarter, up 67.0% on a quarter-over-quarter basis. With 32,624 vehicles delivered to our users in 2020, Li ONE became the best-selling new energy SUV of the year in China. This outstanding performance was fueled by strong demand driven by our distinctive product offering and superior user experience, and made possible by our focused product strategy and our ability to rapidly scale up a consistent and high-quality manufacturing process, a critical pillar of our business. We are especially thankful to our teams for their dedication and focus as they faced the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. With our donations to the affected regions in China, including the cities of Wuhan and Shijiazhuang, we want to shoulder some of the burden and lend a hand to those in need. We are also proud that Li ONE users’ clubs in various cities have been mobilized to help in the fight against the pandemic.

“As always, we are grateful for the consistent support and trust from our users. Looking ahead, we will accelerate the development of the second-generation extended-range platform and high-voltage BEV technologies, aiming to enrich our model mix to cater to the needs of a wider range of family users, while adhering to the brand positioning of premium smart electric vehicles, all in an effort to maximize the value proposition for our users. We are planning on the reconfiguration of our state-of-the-art Changzhou factory for our new model pipeline, especially the full-size premium SUV based on brand new architecture to be launched in 2022. With the establishment of our Shanghai R&D center, we are also expediting R&D across the board to provide safer, more convenient, and more refined products and services.

“Having successfully completed the first phase of our strategic cycle and entered the second stage this year, we will continue racing ahead toward our mission - creating homes on the move that bring happiness to the entire family (“创造移动的家,创造幸福的家”),” concluded Mr. Li.

Mr. Tie Li, chief financial officer of Li Auto, added, “Our robust results in the fourth quarter once again demonstrate the effectiveness of our product strategy and outstanding operational efficiencies. Our total revenues reached RMB4.15 billion, 65.2% higher than the third quarter and significantly exceeding the top end of our revenue guidance by 22.4%. Our gross margin remained robust at 17.5% in the fourth quarter, reflecting our manufacturing efficiency and disciplined cost management approach. Most notably, we nearly doubled our operating cash flow quarter-over-quarter to a record high of RMB1.82 billion, and raised US$1.53 billion in net proceeds through our successful follow-on offering, setting a solid financial foundation as we increase investments for autonomous driving technologies and BEV platforms for our future growth. We are excited to enter 2021 on an upbeat note and look forward to effectively executing our roadmap to deliver value for our users and shareholders alike.”

  • Other sales and services were RMB89.2 million (US$13.7 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, representing a 93.5% increase from RMB46.1 million in the third quarter of 2020.

  • Vehicle margin was 17.1% in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared with 19.8% in the third quarter of 2020. The decrease in vehicle margin was primarily due to a decrease in one-time rebate from suppliers compared with the third quarter of 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

The Company uses Non-GAAP measures, such as Non-GAAP research and development expenses, Non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses, Non-GAAP loss from operations, Non-GAAP net income/(loss), Non-GAAP basic and diluted net income/(loss) per ADS attributable to ordinary shareholders and free cash flow, in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. By excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses, changes in fair value of warrants and derivative liabilities, accretion on convertible redeemable preferred shares to redemption value, deemed dividend to preferred shareholders upon extinguishment, net and the effect of exchange rate changes on convertible redeemable preferred shares, the Company believes that the Non-GAAP financial measures help identify underlying trends in its business and enhance the overall understanding of the Company’s past performance and future prospects. The Company also believes that the Non-GAAP financial measures allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the Company’s management in its financial and operational decision-making.

The Non-GAAP financial measures are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP and may be different from Non-GAAP methods of accounting and reporting used by other companies. The Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and when assessing the Company’s operating performance, investors should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for net loss or other consolidated statements of comprehensive loss data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

The Company mitigates these limitations by reconciling the Non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP performance measures, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company’s performance.

For more information on the Non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned “Unaudited Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” set forth at the end of this press release.

1All translations from Renminbi(“RMB”) to U.S. dollar(“US$”) are made at a rate of RMB6.5250 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate in effect on December 31, 2020 as set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board.

2Vehicle margin is the margin of vehicle sales, which is calculated based on revenues and cost of sales derived from vehicle sales only.

3The Company’s Non-GAAP financial measures exclude share-based compensation expenses, changes in fair value of warrants and derivative liabilities, accretion on convertible redeemable preferred shares to redemption value, deemed dividend to preferred shareholders upon extinguishment, net and the effect of exchange rate changes on convertible redeemable preferred shares. See “Unaudited Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” set forth at the end of this press release.

4Free cash flow represents operating cash flow less capital expenditures.

5Except for vehicle margin and gross margin, where absolute changes instead of percentage changes are presented.

6Each ADS represents two Class A ordinary shares.

7Non-GAAP basic net income/(loss) per ADS attributable to ordinary shareholders is calculated by dividing Non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the periods. Non-GAAP diluted net income/(loss) per ADS attributable to ordinary shareholders is calculated by dividing Non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders by the weighted average number of shares and dilutive potential shares outstanding during the periods, including the dilutive effect of convertible redeemable preferred shares as determined under the if-converted method and share-based awards as determined under the treasury stock method.
