Advertising and other revenues in the fourth quarter of 2021 were RMB118.5 million (US$18.6 million), compared with RMB198.5 million in the same period of 2020.

General and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 2021 decreased 16.1% to RMB98.8 million (US$15.5 million) from RMB117.7 million in the same period of 2020, mainly due to decreased professional service fees.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted operating income (loss) is calculated as operating income (loss) adjusted for share-based compensation expenses. Adjusted net income (loss) is calculated as net income (loss) adjusted for share-based compensation expenses, share of income (loss) in equity method investments, gain on disposal of investment or subsidiaries and impairment loss on investments and expenses in connection with settlement of class action lawsuits. Adjusted net income (loss) attributable to DouYu is calculated as net income (loss) attributable to DouYu adjusted for share-based compensation expenses, share of income (loss) in equity method investments, gain on disposal of investment or subsidiaries, impairment loss of investments and expenses in connection with settlement of class action lawsuits. Adjusted basic and diluted net income per ordinary share is non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shareholders divided by weighted average number of ordinary shares used in the calculation of non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ordinary share. The Company adjusted the impact of (i) share-based compensation expenses, (ii) share of income (loss) in equity method investments, (iii) gain on disposal of investment or subsidiaries, (iv) impairment loss of investments to understand and evaluate the Company’s core operating performance and (v) expenses in connection with settlement of class action lawsuits. The non-GAAP financial measures are presented to enhance investors’ overall understanding of the Company’s financial performance and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measures to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider non-GAAP financial measures as a substitute for, or superior to, such metrics in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
