Failed to go public, pledge equity! The predicament of the old online education platform Hujiang is difficult to solve! Profitability becomes the biggest problem!

发布日期: 2019年07月09日 Source: Early childhood education release date: July 09, 2019 Education and training

Shanghai River, once a unicorn in online education, is ushered in its darkest moment. Its situation also reflects the plight of the entire online education. Regardless of whether a gambling agreement was signed in the previous round of financing, or the current overall economic environment, the performance of the Hong Kong stock market, the characteristics of the education industry, high sales costs, and bloated internal organizations, it cannot be avoided.

According to the IPO, the national corporate credit information publicity system showed that Shanghai Jiangjiang Education Technology (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (“Shanghai”) had a stake plunge on July 4, and the pledgor was Shanghai Chengta Enterprise Management Consulting. In a partnership (limited partnership), the pledgee is Anhui Xinhua Media Co., Ltd., and the amount of pledged equity is 8.905 million yuan.

According to the data of Tian's eye inspection, Anhui Xinhua Media Co., Ltd.'s investment entity, Anhui Xinhua Media, is also one of the investors in the D round of financing in Shanghai in 2015. Shanghai Chengta's number of pledged shares is not high, accounting for only 0.178% of Hujiang Company. Shanghai Chengta holds a total of 3.5% of Hujiang.

However, it is worth noting that Shanghai Chengta is a rewarding stock holding platform for employees. The pledge of equity means that certain terms of the betting agreement between Hujiang and Wanxin Media have been activated. For example, whether management reaches a certain target and decides the outcome of betting. Obviously, pledge of equity to shareholders means that management needs to pay for the completion of a certain target.

But before that, on April 8, 2019, Shanghai Jiangjiang also had a pledge of equity. The pledgor was Shanghai Hujie Investment Management Center (Limited Partnership), and the amount of pledged equity was 12,373.7236 million. Hujie Investment holds 31.99% equity interest in Hujiang. At the same time, Fu Cairui, the legal representative, chairman and general manager of Hujiang, is also a major shareholder of Hujie Investment.

In the winter of capital, the wind of Internet layoffs has blown into the field of online education. On March 6, a "Hujiang layoffs of 1,000 people, a ratio close to 50%" broke the ??百乐宫网上游戏??. Subsequently, there were successive ??百乐宫网上游戏?? about the failure of listed bets, wage reductions and layoffs, and the overdue fulfillment of Wanxin Media's repurchase obligations. At the same time, Hujiang responded to the rumors of "layoffs" on the Internet and had previously signed a listing bet agreement with investors.

Sign a listing and gambling agreement with an investor?

Hujiang Online School submitted the prospectus to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange last July, and updated it again at the end of last year. Due to the bleak performance of the secondary market, the rush to an IPO can only result in a "blood" listing, and the process of listing in Shanghai and Shanghai has been repeatedly delayed.

According to the prospectus, the company has experienced 9 rounds of financing since its establishment, and the total amount of financing has reached 1.6 billion yuan. In the E round of financing completed in 2018, the valuation of Hujiang has more than doubled from the previous round of valuation, reaching 15.95 billion yuan. In the ??百乐宫网上游戏?? from the Internet, "listing to gamble failed" is one of the reasons for this online education unicorn company to lay off employees.

Since then, the listing process in Shanghai has stalled. At the time, a person familiar with the matter said that the reason for the delay in listing was that the roadshow to institutional investors was not smooth at the current stage, and the market response was not as expected.

However, according to the announcement of the agreement released by Wanxin Media in October 2015, Wanxin plans to subscribe for about 267,000 new shares in Hujiang with an investment amount of about 100 million. However, "If Hujiang cannot complete the listing and issuance by the end of 2018, Repurchase the shares held by investors at the repurchase price. The repurchase price is the sum of the investment price plus 10% compound interest per annum. "

No doubt, no matter what the terms of other rounds and shareholders are, at least the transaction terms signed by Anhui New Media and Hujiang have gambling implications.

Uncertain profit model

In 2009, Hujiang launched its flagship product, Hujiang Online School. Relying on Hujiang.com to sell its own brand courses, which became one of the main sources of profit for Hujiang.com. Hujiang's prospectus shows that charging sales fees to trainees through selling and managing private-label courses is a major source of company revenue. In the first 8 months of 2018, revenue from private label course business accounted for 98% of total revenue.

Shanghai Prospectus

However, according to the prospectus submitted by Hujiang, Hujiang's revenue has increased year by year, from 185 million, 340 million, and 555 million from 2015 to 2017, and the revenue of the first eight months of 2018 was 436 million, but the company's profitability Worrying. From 2015 to 2017, Hujiang's three-year loss totaled more than 1.2 billion, and the loss continued to expand. The annual loss for the year ended August 31, 2018 was 863 million yuan, which exceeded the 537 million loss for the whole year of 2017. Will continue to lose money.

Another noteworthy figure in Hujiang's financial information is its gross profit margin. In the past four years, the gross profit margin of sales brand courses has exceeded 50%. In 2017, this figure was close to 60%, and in the first 8 months of 2018, the gross profit margin became 61.2%.

There is a steady increase in business revenue, and gross profit margins have continued to rise. Why is Hujiang still losing money for years? The prospectus shows that in recent years, the largest investment of Shanghai University has been in three areas: research and development, advertising and marketing. But R & D investment has narrowed in the past two years, while sales and advertising have been huge. Among them, Hujiang ’s spending on advertising promotion has increased by 200% in just two years. Continued investment in selling expenses and distribution expenses directly resulted in negative operating cash flow of Hujiang in the past two years.

Another business that Hujiang Education may become the main source of future revenue is the CCtalk platform, which was established in 2016. The CCtalk platform provides Internet education technology and platform services to various education practitioners. Users include teachers, corporate customers, educational institutions and government agencies. However, there are some hidden dangers in the CCtalk model. Compared with the comprehensive packaging of B2C model online education for courses and teachers, the platform itself has limited service guarantees for users. The courses are mainly completed independently by the admission institutions and teachers. It is difficult to guarantee user retention. Moreover, although online education platforms can also introduce star teachers with their own traffic, the ultimate independent development of star teachers has become the norm. For CCtalk, the most typical example is Zhou Sicheng's withdrawal from the platform and its independent development shortly after he settled in CCtalk.

On the CCtalk platform, teachers' income is also lower .

According to the prospectus data, as of the end of 2016 and 2017, the total net transaction volume of CCtalk was 3.8 million yuan and 235.7 million yuan. According to 2017, CCtalk platform paid users were 255,298, and the per capita payment was 923 yuan. The average annual average of each teacher The course income is less than 6,000 yuan, which does not include the platform costs that may be separated by Shanghai. This shows from the side that the benefits of CCtalk to teachers are limited, and there may not be many teachers willing to output high-quality courses on this platform.

From it, we can see that Hujiang's biggest problem is weak profitability, although Hujiang stated in the "risk factors" that if it fails to continue to attract students to register for Hujiang's private brand courses, or fail to improve its own brand The expenses of course participants or paying users of online courses on the CCtalk platform will adversely affect business performance.

Beginning in early 2019, the Hujiang adult English business Hitalk, which was full of posters on the Shanghai Metro two years ago, was almost cut off. Its real-time interactive education platform CCtalk was also the hardest hit area for layoffs. Hujiang invested in CCtalk. It has reached 330 million yuan, but its total revenue is less than 2 million. It is the most important expenditure business of Shanghai in the past three years.

So far, Hujiang has laid off more than 1,000 employees. The prospectus in August last year showed that its total number of employees was nearly 2,200. It is reported that in the future, this number will be controlled at about 1,000 people. At the same time as the large-scale layoffs, Hujiang after the listing failure also faces the loss of backbone forces across the board.

In recent years, as a popular entrepreneurial direction of online education +, capital has given a variety of business expectations, but high investment, low return, "burning money" to maintain the operating model has been unavoidable.

Once the online education unicorn Hujiang encountered "failure to go public" and "continuous losses", it could only relieve its financial pressure by pledged equity. It can be seen that the lack of its own profit model in the early stage depends on the advance payment of tuition and some financing to survive. Scheme. Right now, if you want to survive, finding your own profit model is the key.

While asking our parents to return to work, it is homework for various groups in the school. It is a sophomore, Chinese, mathematics, English, music, sports, art, and so many groups. Parents must accompany their children to read and complete the tasks. Then take pictures, videos! Then, parents are back to work. How can these homework be completed? Is it time to return from work? It's really unreasonable. Parents are tired.

I think the health of students is very important now, especially under the background of this student, there are already a large number of students with myopia. Why does the school education even force students to watch it so that glasses ca n’t work in a day, I I am a senior in high school. I have to stare at the screen for at least four hours a day. The glasses are really tired, and it takes about seven or eight hours a day to do questions on the screen. The glasses are really too high.

Teachers, parents, and children all torture each other. Actually, the kindergarten also recorded online lessons. I did n’t think it was necessary for my second grade. The teacher could arrange special homework, copy papers, diary and manual. The damage to the eyes is great, and the loss is worth it.

I'm curious. Except for the supplementary classes for the junior high school and high school winter vacation, aren't all the elementary and middle schools yet to start? Generally, it is around February 25 every year. Why are there live lectures everywhere? How are the students' schedules arranged? Looking at parents' phones all day long?

Suspension and non-stop online teaching is to make head decisions, without considering the actual situation of each teacher or student, can it be equipped? Non-graduate classes may be delayed for the summer vacation and shortened.

I think this form is very good. In the fifth grade, a class is only about 15 minutes. It is very efficient. Think about how much time you usually waste at school. After listening, the child can rest and do his own work. He finishes his homework at six o'clock, and the evening time is all his own.

It looks like a good thing, but it's impractical to think about it a little more, one without teaching materials, two without teaching participants, three without multimedia courseware, and four without classroom feedback and interaction. How to keep the network unblocked? How to ensure everyone's participation? Does the leader feel that the teacher can talk like a speaker for three hours without stopping? Usually carrying the new curriculum standard with students as the main body of the classroom, at this moment, the teacher sang a monologue.

This is indeed a new transformation. The teacher did not expect that one day it would become a webcast anchor. Maybe one day, the teaching methods changed due to the virus epidemic in the new hall increased the popularity of online education. In fact, from one aspect, this is also necessary for the progress of the times. School education can also be diversified and adapted to different courses on different platforms.
