CLPS Incorporation Reports Financial Results for the Second Half and Full Year of Fiscal 2023

HONG KONG, Oct. 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- CLPS Incorporation (the "Company" or "CLPS") (Nasdaq: CLPS), today announced its financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2023 and full year of fiscal 2023.

During this period, the global economic landscape and international affairs have undergone remarkable transformations, driven by various factors such as the Federal Reserve interest rate adjustments and shifts in China's COVID-19 policies. This unprecedented chain of events had impacted both the macro and micro economies.

The Company experienced direct and indirect effects on its business development, particularly concerning the impact of exchange rate fluctuation between the RMB and the U.S. dollar, given its reporting currency. These challenges have provided CLPS with valuable insights and have strengthened its ability to navigate global economic dynamics effectively.

In addition, CLPS observed short term effects that involved gradual refinement in discretionary spending by some of its established clients, leading to a temporary reduction in demand for IT services, particularly in banking and e-commerce areas. However, CLPS view this as a chance to innovate and tailor its services to meet evolving client needs, positioning it for long-term growth and resilience.

The increased demand for IT professionals in response to rapid industry development and economic structural changes has naturally driven up compensation costs. Nevertheless, CLPS proactively addressed this issue through its Talent Creation Program and Talent Development Program, which seamlessly integrate education, training, and service delivery. These programs have not only alleviated the pressure of rising labor costs but also reinforced its commitment to nurturing top-tier talents.

Through continuous investment in advanced technology, extensive research, and a deep understanding of its clients' needs, CLPS has built a strong reputation in the industry, enhanced its competitiveness, and bolstered its bargaining power over the years.

Our operating expenses decreased by 20.9% in the second half of fiscal year 2023 and by 4.6% for the full year of fiscal 2023, excluding the impact of the deduction of goodwill caused by low stock price.

Financial Outlook

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The consolidated financial information is prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"), except that the consolidated statement of changes in shareholders' equity, consolidated statements of cash flows, and the detailed notes have not been presented. The Company uses non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income attributable to CLPS Incorporation's shareholders, and basic and diluted non-GAAP net income per share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP operating income is operating income excluding share-based compensation expenses and impairment of goodwill. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as general and administrative expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP operating margin is non-GAAP operating income as a percentage of revenues. Non-GAAP net income attributable to CLPS Incorporation's shareholders is net income attributable to CLPS Incorporation's shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses and impairment of goodwill. Basic and diluted non-GAAP net income per share is non-GAAP net income attributable to common shareholders divided by weighted average number of shares used in the calculation of basic and diluted net income per share. The Company believes that separate analysis and exclusion of the non-cash impact of share-based compensation expenses and impairment of goodwill clarity to the constituent parts of its performance. The Company reviews these non-GAAP financial measures together with GAAP financial measures to obtain a better understanding of its operating performance. It uses the non-GAAP financial measure for planning, forecasting and measuring results against the forecast. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measure is useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance without the effect of non-cash share-based compensation expenses and impairment of goodwill, which have been and will continue to be significant recurring expenses in its business. However, the use of non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not include all items that impact the Company's net income for the period. In addition, because non-GAAP financial measures are not measured in the same manner by all companies, they may not be comparable to other similar titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider non-GAAP financial measure in isolation from or as an alternative to the financial measure prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company encourages investors to carefully consider its results under GAAP, as well as its supplemental non-GAAP information and the reconciliation between these presentations, to more fully understand its business. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP and GAAP Results" near the end of this release.
