Executive Commentary

Mr. Chaohui Chen, Director and Chief Executive Officer of UCLOUDLINK, said, “We closed out 2023 on a high note, delivering full-year revenue growth of 19.8%. We also generated operating cash inflow of US$6.5 million and net income of US$2.8 million, a milestone in the turnaround of our business following the COVID-19 pandemic. Our 1.0 international data connectivity services business continued to recover in 2023. In our major markets, China and Japan, we are seeing the early signs of a recovery in outbound tourism and business travel following the COVID-19 pandemic. With more Chinese tourists beginning to use our Roamingman brand services again and the recovery in Japan gaining momentum, our market share in these major markets is growing, which will create significant growth opportunities for us going forward. With one of the most extensive 5G roaming networks in the world that covers 55 countries and regions, our competitive high-speed 5G roaming solutions not only offer extensive coverage, but also significantly enhance user experience, which further expands our user base and cements our leading position in the roaming market.”

“While working to turn around our business in the past year, we leveraged our existing research and development resources and cutting-edge technologies to explore business opportunities beyond portable Wi-Fi terminals and build an expanded array of comprehensive data connectivity solutions to satisfy a wide range of users’ needs. In addition to significantly enhancing the travel experience by catering to the diverse data connectivity needs of various users, we will also offer more intelligent and convenient life applications like item tracking, pet management, and emergency communication, among others, through our GlocalMe Life solutions business. We believe that these solutions will expand our market reach and help us establish a broader market presence. Our ‘Better Connection Empowers Better Life’ mission is leading us to extend our business beyond the travel sector to various aspects of daily life, thereby generating long-term sustainable growth.”

“Looking ahead to 2024, we will continue to strengthen the foundation of our business, GlocalMe mobile/fixed broadband, with an expanded offering of innovative cloud SIM technology, hyper-connectivity solutions and additional value-added services that improve the user experience. We believe that we are uniquely positioned to expand our share in the roaming market. These cloud SIM technology and hyper-connectivity solutions will facilitate future large-scale and commercial upgrades for our 5G Customer Premises Equipment (CPE), which will unlock additional opportunities in the mobile/fixed broadband space. GlocalMe SIM solutions, including our over-the-air (OTA) SIM and eSIM solutions, will evolve into our innovative “All SIM” solution, which will allow us to engage with a broader end user base beyond those in the portable Wi-Fi terminal market. Our GlocalMe Life solutions business has an exciting slate of product announcements planned in the future, which will bring seamless connectivity into various high-frequency daily life application scenarios. We will also integrate these cloud SIM technology and hyper-connectivity solutions into our Internet of Things (IoT) business. Leveraging both proprietary and third-party smart modules compatible with mainstream chipset platforms, our IoT business will empower terminals and third-party devices, allowing them to intelligently select and dynamically switch between multiple local carriers worldwide. These products, including our proprietary terminals and third-party devices integrated with GlocalMe Inside (GMI), enable our customers to enjoy our services anytime and anywhere.”

“These solutions will drive our transformation, significantly scale up our global user base, and drive growth going forward. As a result, our customers will enjoy a more intelligent and convenient life through our reliable and high-quality data connection solutions for a range of everyday scenarios.”

For 2024, UCLOUDLINK expects total revenues to be between US$95.0 million and US$112.0 million, representing an increase of 11.0% to 30.8% from that of 2023.

The above outlook is based on current market conditions and reflects the Company’s preliminary estimates of market and operating conditions and customer demand. The global outbreak of COVID-19, which had a severe and negative impact on the global economy since the first quarter of 2020, presents continuous and various global risks. We will continue to carefully monitor COVID-19 related factors.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, this press release presents, adjusted net income/(loss) and adjusted EBITDA, as supplemental measures to review and assess the Company’s 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. Adjusted net income/(loss) is defined as net income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation, fair value gain/loss in other investment and share of profit/loss in equity method investment, net of tax. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation, fair value gain/loss in other investment, share of profit/loss in equity method investment, net of tax, interest expense, income tax expenses and depreciation and amortization.

The Company believes that adjusted net income/(loss) and adjusted EBITDA help identify underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain expenses that are included in income/(loss) from operations and net income/(loss). The Company believes that adjusted net income/(loss) and adjusted EBITDA provide useful information about its operating results, enhance the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by its management in its financial and operational decision-making.

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 adjusted net income/(loss) and adjusted EBITDA is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect the Company’s operations. Share-based compensation, fair value gain/loss in other investment and share of profit/loss in equity method investment, net of tax, have been and may continue to be incurred in the Company’s business and is not reflected in the presentation of adjusted net income/(loss). Further, the non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.

The Company compensate for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measure to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating its performance. The Company encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is set forth at the end of this release.
