MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

BUSINESS REVIEW

The Group is a leading vertical online platform for the Children-Babies-Maternity (“CBM”) market in China, aiming at providing users with value-added services like new media, contents, community, smart hardware, e-commerce and cross- border services with such platforms as the CI Web(育兒網), mobile CI Web, mobile APPs and the IPTV APP, creating a one- stop mother-child experience platform. In terms of the total volume of data of mobile APPs of the Company (representing the sum volume of data of “Pregnancy Reminder”(孕育提醒)APP and the “Mother Zone(媽媽社區)” APP, two major mobile APPs of CI Web), the MAU and DAU aggregated 15.24 million and 3.30 million respectively as of 30 June 2020, representing an increase of 38%and 37%, respectively, as compared to those of last year.

In the post-pandemic era, the prevention and control on the epidemic became a normalized trend. As a double-edged sword, the pandemic not only accelerated the change of the rules in the mother-child industry, and also facilitated the transformation, upgrading and integration of the industry at a faster pace. CI Web has shifted to a comprehensive ecological platform boasting six major capabilities such as brand targeted marketing, brand digitization, MCN support, information platform, full-scenario-based SaaS, full-scenario customer acquisition from a single mother-child portal. We will further drive our brand to go through transformation to achieve targeted marketing, full-scenario customer acquisition following the pandemic.

During the period, the Group prioritized and promoted the progress of transformation for digitization of the mother-child industry, connecting the various ecosystems in the platform capitalizing on its contents, technological strengths and database. It provided diversified and multiple-scenario services under the household-consumption orientation, aiming to the facilitation of digital transformation among mother-child brands, entities and enterprises. It also gave access to solutions for digital efficiency enhancement. Empowered by the content matrix, data and technology platforms, CI Web strategically joined force with various brands by proceeding with CRM management, users marketing and big data analysis and other improvement by means of digitization. Furthermore, the comprehensive ecosystem platform of CI Web also empowered bricks and mortar clinics through medical SaaS system, supported small- and medium-early education institutions nationwide with comprehensive education system and further pushed forward transformation into digitization of early education institutions.

Relying on BABYFACE data analysis platform, the Group precisely identified mother-child population through smart big-data management. It brought its digitization experiences into full play to design smart marketing strategy, widely promoting its own platform. The “Mother Zone”(媽媽社區)APP of the CI Web, by pooling the advantages of the whole platform, built the IP “Pursuit of Babies among Pregnant Girls”(膨脹女孩奪寶孕動)as its annual campaign. Meanwhile, in cooperation with TikTok(抖音)APP under ByteDance, Toutiao(今日頭條)and other platforms, the Group launched out a wide variety of video programs, thematic interesting activities for sourcing new users from various channels. In addition, with its online and offline efforts, the Group helped mitigate stress in parenting families with quality materials during the pandemic and gave support to our brand in providing mental education in the course of knowledge promotion. By means of the foregoing efforts, both our user size and awareness of the platform have witnessed remarkable enhancement.

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

CI Web continued to strengthen cooperation with third parties to achieve complementary advantages and mutual benefit. During the Period, CI Web cooperated with W+ Club(育悅薈), a mother-child health management platform. CI Web provides mother-child health management services for the membership covering more than 50 mother-child ecological alliance brands. By leveraging our advantages as to mother-child themed “contents, operation and technology”, we provided personalized services and health solutions for mother-child family, and empowered related mother-child industries for promoting marketing and conversion among members. As a long-term partner of Pinduoduo(拼多多)in respect of mother-child products and services, CI Web provides multi-form and all-dimensional content support for its “Parent- Child Festival”. Alternatively, we chose by way of livestreaming platforms to answer question in relation to mother-child population and interpret the parenting knowledge. Moreover, CI Web reached a friendly strategic cooperation with Haier. By utilizing the Haier APP as a platform for launching our quality parenting Q&A, we assisted families in dealing with parenting challenges in the interactive and interesting scenarios. In this manner, we collectively designed smart solutions for families and explored more opportunities for cooperation under offline situation.

In terms of public welfare and social responsibilities, CI Web united numerous enterprises in the mother-child industry to donate supplies for baby and children to designated hospitals for treating children infected by novel coronavirus, such as Wuhan Children’s Hospital. Peer-to-peer communication between the Company and these hospitals made the whole donation process transparent and standardised to help children patients to be comforted and accompanied during quarantine. During the Period, Mr. Zhang Lake Mozi, the representative of the Group, was invited to attend the charity activities with the attendance of children afflicted with certain particular diseases. The Group were always providing charity- caring donation, company and guidance for the child patients recovering from various diseases in their personal visit at times.

OUTLOOK

The Group will keep helping mother-child brands and enterprises in the pursuit of targeted marketing, full-scenario customer acquisition and digitalized transformation in the areas of online operation, family travel, new retail, health, education and entertainment of mother-child topics. With its platform-wide and multiple-dimension empowering, the Group will facilitate the mother-child businesses and brand owners to embrace new opportunities in the post-pandemic era.

18 China Parenting Network Holdings Limited • Interim Report 2020

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

The Company continued to track and monitor its investments and conduct evaluation. As most of the Company’s investments are emerging market growth companies, some of the entities which the Company invested are in the stage of research and development. The Company considers its investment management in the following aspects:

  • effective output from the application of the industrial chain, including technological output;
  • operating condition, including the achievement of business objectives, standardization of the corporate governance structure, and the stability of core talents; and
  • judgment on the future growth prospects of the industry it located and technology market.

With technological advancement and the changes in needs and behaviors of the new generation consumers in recent years, our investment helps to achieve the upstream and downstream digitalization of the industrial chain. It is also beneficial for us to consolidate new technology and service application scenarios to help brands upgrade their traditional business models. Since most of our investments are made in digital industries, they are currently affected by the epidemic to a lesser extent. Furthermore, influenced by the epidemic, more enterprises will require digital transformation solutions. Upon evaluation by our Company, the overall value of the investment during first half year in 2020 is in a state of steadiness comparing with 31 December 2019, which is in line with our strategic planning direction.

China Parenting Network Holdings Limited • Interim Report 2020 19

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES AND POLICIES

The Group is a vertical online platform for the CBM market. In relation to its business development, family-related business of the Group refers to business that uses Internet technology to address the needs of new generation home consumers as target customers, such as early education, entertainment, health and services. On the basis of its existing core business, the family-related business of the Group still adheres to the original family-based user groups of its CBM platform, and forms a new maternal and child ecological layout with diversified maternal and child family services. It also extends the traditional and single maternal and child services to several cross-sector segments including health, education, finance and entertainment by way of investment and strategic cooperation, further expanding the types of family services and customer reach, prolonging user life-cycle, and meeting the increasing long-tail demands from the mother-child groups.

There have been rapid changes in the Internet industry and the competition in online advertising and e-commerce market and related O2O business is intense. The Group intends to expand into new core sectors such as new socialized retail, family medical, family education and internet technology with external empowerment. Leveraging the investments in the companies engaged in relevant new sectors, the Company will be able to reduce its costs to a certain extent and enter such new sectors in a quicker manner, as well as gain technology reserves and Internet traffic from new resources.

As for its investment strategy, in line with its principal business and for its future business development, the Company targets on investments in entities which are principally engaged in CBM and family related business chain and related technology research and development. The Company has adopted investment policies which it will take into account when making its investment decisions. In general, the Company prefers long-term investments as opposed to short-term ones and usually invests in targeted entities for more than one year. For the Company’s mode of investment, the Company may adopt equity investments through acquisition of shareholdings in the targeted entities or loan financings by providing facilities to the targeted entities depending on, among others, potential rate of return which generally shall be not less than 6% per annum or the prevailing one-year fixed deposit interest rate published by the People’s Bank of China (whichever is higher), strategic cooperation with the invested entities of the company, negotiation with the counterparties as well as compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. In order to reduce its participation in the operation and management of its investments so as to focus on its existing business, the Company generally does not invest in more than 20% shareholding in the targeted entities.

In addition to financial returns, the Directors expect that the investments will create synergies to the Group’s business in terms of upgrade in technologies, enrichment of contents as well as expansion of coverage of value-added services which in turn result in enhancement of operational efficiency, user experience and user base. Depending on the business natures of the invested companies, the Group usually requires the invested companies to share their relevant technologies to offer selected contents such as games, animations and audio and video contents of them for the Platform, to share user data and network for promotion of the Group’s APPs, and to support the Group’s provision of value-added services to its users. The Group has a certain scale of investment activities. Failure to promptly and effectively manage investment risks may affect realization of investment strategies. The risk resulting from adverse movements in industry market could also impact the Group’s investment.

The Group has formed an investment team (the “team”). The team’s member consisted of the Group’s chief executive officer, chief financial officer, marketing director, technical director and operation director who are experienced in the Internet industry. The team has been continuously paying attention to the market influence and technological development of the investment areas related to the CBM business chain. The Group continuously monitors the status of business development and financial exposure of investees and conducts regular assessments. The Group also strictly requires the invested entities to use the proceeds of the Group’s investments for the sole purpose of the planned business development projects as agreed by the Group.

As disclosed in the announcements of the Company dated 15 December 2017 and 28 September 2018, the Group has been in discussions with Management Committee of the Software Valley of Nanjing, the PRC regarding the acquisition of land for its headquarters. As disclosed in the announcements of the Company dated 27 December 2019, Nanjing Wanhui, an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, has entered into the Development Entrustment Agreement with Nanjing Ningnan Real Estate Development pursuant to which Nanjing Ningnan Real Estate Development shall mainly (i) assist Nanjing Wanhui in acquisition of land use right of the Target Land from Nanjing Planning and Natural Resources Bureau; and (ii) construct and develop the Target Land as the Group’s new headquarters in the PRC. The Consideration of approximately RMB54.3 million (equivalent to approximately HK$60.3 million) includes the costs of the acquisition, construction and development of the Target Land.

China Parenting Network Holdings Limited • Interim Report 2020 21

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

The amount of the Consideration to be paid by Nanjing Wanhui will be satisfied mainly by the net proceeds from the Placing allocated for acquiring property or land for the construction of the headquarters of the Company, with any remaining amount by the Group’s internal resources. In 2019, Nanjing Wanhui has paid a land premium of RMB5.34 million (equivalent to approximately HKD6.0 million) to Nanjing Bureau of Finance. In the first half of 2020, a total of construction fees were paid and the various government administrative fees and taxes were RMB10.3 million (approximately HK$12.1 million). The Company expects to obtain the land certificate in the third quarter of 2020. The remaining portion of the allocated fund has not been utilised.

According to the Development Entrustment Agreement, the planned construction area in the Nanyuan Area, the Software Valley of Nangjing, the PRC has been approved by the government authority, spanning to existing Mading Road ( 馬定路) to the north, existing Meiyuan South Road ( 梅苑南路) to the west, existing Second Passage of Lukou Airport ( 祿口機場二 通道) to the east and Dazhou Road ( 大周路) to the south. The Target Land is located at Nanyuan Area, the Software Valley of Nangjing, the PRC, with a site area of approximately 3,210 sq.m. and a total floor area of approximately 8,358 sq.m. It is expected that the construction work will be completed in 2022, subject to the actual progress of such construction work. The Group is currently leasing properties for its own use as offices. The Directors consider that the development of the Target Land as the Group’s new headquarters will benefit the Group in saving rental expenses. The Company may consider renting out the remaining premises for rental returns.

SHARE OPTION SCHEME

The Company adopted a share option scheme on 19 June 2015 (the “Share Option Scheme”) for the purpose of providing incentive or rewarding eligible persons (including the Directors or employees (whether full time or part time), consultants or advisors of our Group) for their contribution to, and continuing efforts to promote the interests of our Group and for such other purposes as the Board may approve from time to time. No share option has been granted under the Share Option Scheme since its adoption by the Company.

The Share Option Scheme became effective on the date of the Company’s listing (8 July 2015) and, unless otherwise cancelled or amended, will remain in force for 10 years from that date.

The maximum number of shares which may be issued upon exercise of all options granted and to be granted under the Share Option Scheme is 100,000,000 shares, representing 10% of the shares of the Company in issue as at the date of listing of the Company’s shares on GEM (i.e. 8 July 2015) and 9.75% of the shares of the Company in issue as at the date of this report. The maximum number of shares issuable under share options granted to each eligible participant in the Share Option Scheme (including both exercised and outstanding options) within any 12-month period is limited to 1% of the shares of the Company in issue. Any grant or further grant of share options in excess of this limit is subject to Shareholders’ approval in a general meeting. A grant of share options under the Share Option Scheme to a Director, chief executive or substantial Shareholder of the Company, or to any of their associates, is subject to approval in advance by the independent non-executive Directors (excluding any independent non-executive Director who is the grantee of the Option). In addition, any share options granted to a substantial Shareholder or an independent non-executive Director of the Company, or to any of their associates, which would result in the shares issued and to be issued, upon exercise of all options already granted and to be granted (including options exercised, cancelled and outstanding), to such person in the 12-month period up to and including the date of the grant in excess of 0.1% of the shares of the Company in issue and with an aggregate value (based on the closing price of the Company’s shares at the date of grant) in excess of HK$5 million, are subject to Shareholders’ approval in advance at a general meeting.

The offer of a grant of share options may be accepted within 30 days from the date of offer upon payment of a nominal consideration of RMB1 in total by the grantee. The exercise period of the share options granted is determined by the Directors, save that such a period shall not be more than 10 years from the date of offer of the share options and subject to the provisions for early termination as set out in the Share Option Scheme. There is no requirement of a minimum period for which an option must be held before it can be exercised.

The exercise price of the share options shall be not less than the highest of (i) the Hong Kong Stock Exchange closing price of the Company’s shares on the date of offer of the share options, which must be a date on which the Hong Kong Stock Exchange is open for business of dealing in securities; (ii) the average Hong Kong Stock Exchange closing price of the Company’s shares for the five trading days immediately before the date of offer; and (iii) the nominal value of the Company’s shares as at the date of offer.

No share options were granted from the date of adoption up to 30 June 2020. Therefore, no share options were outstanding under the Scheme.

4 OPERATING SEGMENT INFORMATION

The Group is principally engaged in the provision of marketing and promotional services through the Group’s platform and e-commerce business.

The information reported to the directors of the Company, who are the chief operating decision-makers, for the purpose of resource allocation and assessment of performance does not contain discrete operating segment financial information and the directors reviewed the financial results of the Group as a whole. Therefore, no further information about the operating segment is presented.

During the period, the Group operated within one geographical segment because nearly all of its revenue was generated in the Mainland China and all of its long-term assets/capital expenditure were located/incurred in the Mainland China. Accordingly, no geographical segment information is presented.

9 (LOSS)/EARNINGS PER SHARE ATTRIBUTABLE TO ORDINARY EQUITY HOLDERS OF THE PARENT

The calculation of the basic earnings per share amount is based on the (loss)/profit attributable to ordinary equity holders of the parent, and the weighted average numbers of ordinary shares of 1,025,662,000 (2019: 1,025,662,000) in issue during the six months ended 30 June 2020 and 2019. The Board does not recommend the payment of an interim dividend for the six months ended 30 June 2020 (six months ended 30 June 2019: RMBNil).

There were no potentially dilutive ordinary shares in issue during the six months ended 30 June 2020 and 2019, and therefore the diluted earnings per share amount is equivalent to the basic earnings per share.

Notes:

  1. Since September 2016, the Group had begun to offer certain employees interest-free loans which amounted to no more than RMB15,000,000 in aggregate. The employees, including key management personnel, who have served the Group for more than three years can apply for such interest-free loans to purchase home properties. The balance, including interest-free loans to key management personnel of RMB1,798,000 (31 December 2019: RMB1,775,000), represents the interest-free loans to employees which will be repaid within two to five years.
  2. As at 30 June 2020, included in the balances was a loan measured at fair value of RMB13,887,000 (31 December 2019: RMB14,935,000), made to a private company, Nanjing Qianyu Information Technology Company Limited (「南京千魚信息技術有限公司」) (“Nanjing Qianyu”), at interest rate of 6.0% per annum for a period of 36 months. The directors of the Company are of the opinion that this loan facility agreement is for the long-term interest of the Group. In future, by evaluating the performance of Nanjing Qianyu over a period, the Group has the option to invest in shares of Nanjing Qianyu in priority. The loan was guaranteed by a subsidiary, Jiangsu Wansheng Weiye Network Technology Company Limited (「江蘇萬聖偉業網絡科技有限公司」) of an A-share company.
    The balance as at 30 June 2020 also included a loan measured at fair value of RMB4,913,000 (31 December 2019: RMB4,753,000) extended to a third party, Beijing Hongwei Technology Company Limited(北京宏偉科技有限公司)(“Beijing Hongwei”), bearing interest rate of 8.0% per annum for a period of 24 months. By evaluating the performance of Beijing Hongwei over a period, the Group has the option to invest in shares of Beijing Hongwei in priority. The directors of the Company are of the opinion that this loan facility agreement is for the long-term interest of the Group and therefore designated at FVOCI.
  3. As at 6 June 2020, the balance included a loan with interest of RMB1,148,000 (2019 RMB1,117,000) extended to a third party, Shenzhen Feishikang Technology Company Limited(深圳飛視康科技有限公司), bearing interest rates of 6.0% per annum for periods of 36 months.

The Group’s trading terms with its customers are mainly on credit. The credit period is generally 90 to 180 days after date of invoices, depending on contracts with individual customers. Each customer has a maximum credit limit. The Group seeks to maintain strict control over its outstanding receivables and has a credit control department to minimise credit risk. Overdue balances are reviewed regularly by senior management. In view of the aforementioned and the fact that the Group’s trade receivables relate to customers with a good track record, there is no significant concentration of credit risk. The Group does not hold any collateral or other credit enhancements over its trade receivable balances. Trade receivables are non-interest-bearing.

Bills receivables are those bills not yet due at the end of the reporting period and the management considers the default rate is low as the Group did not encounter any default on bills receivables based on past experience. All bills received by the Group are with a maturity period of less than one year.

An ageing analysis of the trade receivables as at the end of the reporting period, based on the date of invoices and net of loss allowance, is as follows:

Contract assets are initially recognised for revenue earned from the marketing and promotional services as the receipt of consideration is conditional on successful completion of services. Included in contract assets for marketing and promotional services are retention receivables. Upon completion of services and acceptance by the customer, the amounts recognised as contract assets are reclassified to trade receivables.

As at 30 June 2020, RMB155,000 (31 December 2019: provision for impairment of RMB221,000) was recognised for reversal of impairment on contract assets.

An impairment analysis is performed at each reporting date using a provision matrix to measure ECLs. The provision rates for the measurement of the ECLs of the contract assets are based on those of the trade receivables as the contract assets and the trade receivables are from the same customer bases. The provision rates of contract assets are based on days past due of trade receivables for groupings of various customer segments with similar loss patterns (i.e., by geographical region, product type, customer type and rating, and coverage by letters of credit or other forms of credit insurance). The calculation reflects the probability-weighted outcome, the time value of money and reasonable and supportable information that is available at the reporting date about past events, current conditions and forecasts of future economic conditions.

Management has assessed that the fair values of cash and cash equivalents, time deposit with original maturity over three months, financial assets included in prepayments, deposits and other receivables, contract assets, trade payables and financial liabilities included in other payables and accruals, based on their notional amounts, reasonably approximate to their carrying amounts largely due to the short-term maturities of these instruments.

The Group’s finance department headed by the finance manager is responsible for determining the policies and procedures for the fair value measurement of financial instruments. The finance manager reports directly to the chief financial officer and the audit committee. At each reporting date, the finance department analyses the movements in the values of financial instruments and determines the major inputs applied in the valuation. The valuation is reviewed and approved by the chief financial officer. The valuation process and results are discussed with the audit committee twice a year for interim and annual financial reporting.

The fair values of the financial assets are included at the amount at which the instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing parties, other than in a forced or liquidation sale. The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair values:

The fair value of financial assets and liabilities at amortised costs included in long term receivables and interest-bearing bank borrowings have been calculated by discounting the expected future cash flows using rates currently available for instruments with similar terms, credits risk and remaining maturities.

The fair value of financial assets at FVPL under Level 2 included bank product investments which represent wealth management products issued by banks in Mainland China. The Group has estimated the fair value of these unlisted investments by discounting the expected future cash flow based on the market interest rates of instruments with similar terms and risk.

Notes:

  1. An increase in the expected volatility used in isolation would result in an increase in the fair value measurement of the financial assets at FVOCI included in long-term receivables and unlisted equity securities respectively, and vice versa. 5% increase/decrease in the volatility holding all other variables constant would increase/decrease the carrying amount of the financial assets at FVOCI included in long-term receivables and unlisted equity securities by RMB161,000 and RMB1,016,000 respectively (31 December 2019: RMB106,000 and RMB1,336,000 respectively).
  2. An increase in the price/sale ratios used in isolation would result in an increase in the fair value measurement of the unlisted equity investments, and vice versa. 5% increase/decrease in the price/sale ratio holding all other variables constant would increase/decrease the carrying amount of the unlisted equity investments by RMB1,729,000 (31 December 2019: RMB1,771,000).
  3. An increase in the long-term revenue growth rates used in isolation would result in an increase in the fair value measurement of the unlisted equity securities, and vice versa. 2% increase/decrease in the long-term revenue growth rates holding all other variables constant would increase/decrease the carrying amount of the unlisted equity securities by RMB2,650,000 (31 December 2019: RMB2,611,000).
