Our massive scale, operating efficiency and high-quality services, combined with strong network effects, have created a virtuous cycle, spurring a 64.5% year-over-year jump in our full year GTV to RMB3.5 trillion. The ground we’ve covered in the past year has cemented our confidence that the value brought by our commitment to doing the right thing even if it’s difficult, is the foundation for all our achievements.

With a focus on creating value for our customers and empowering stores and agents, our GTV for existing home transaction services grew by a substantial 49.5% to RMB1.94 trillion in 2020. Our platform vigorously promoted 8 core commitments to our customers, including authentic listing guarantees and transaction fund escrow services, which penetrated 84% of stores in the top 30 cities in the fourth quarter of 2020. GTV for new home transaction services climbed by 85% to RMB1.38 trillion in 2020, owing to our three-pronged approach of ensuring satisfaction of customers’ needs, supporting service providers, and establishing relationships with an increasing number of real estate developers and providing more tailored and more efficient services that cater to their needs. We extended commission advances covering more than 40% of new home sales commission-split to connected stores and other platform participants in 2020, and successfully brought the whole process online. During the year, we also made solid headway in home decoration and renovation services, as well as financial services in preparation for our next phase of growth.

For 2021, we have five focus areas – taking care of our customers, supporting service providers, cultivating our emerging services, creating social value, and enhancing technology’s critical role in this broad market opportunity. We are confident of our growth trajectory, as we move closer to realizing our vision of providing comprehensive and trusted housing services to 300 million families in China,” concluded Mr. Peng.

Mr. Tao Xu, Chief Financial Officer of Beike, further commented, “We delivered another quarter of solid financial results, marked by high revenue growth and strong profitability. Our total net revenues in the fourth quarter increased by 57.6% year-over-year to RMB22.7 billion, exceeding the high end of our previous guidance range. We are also very pleased to witness that over 30% of stores on Beike platform had an annual GTV of RMB50 million or more in 2020, which we believe is an adequate level to support sustainable growth of the stores, compared to 19% in prior year, demonstrating the strong network effects of our agent cooperation network (ACN). Going forward, we will remain focused on taking better care of consumers and support platform participants such as brokerage brands, store owners, agents and real estate developers to take better care of consumers, while continuously strengthening our competitive moat and growing our business at a fast pace. As we continue to invest in our ACN infrastructure, user base expansion and innovative A.I. technologies, we are confident that we will further enhance our monetization capabilities and deliver sustainable growth.”

Net Revenues

Net revenues increased by 57.6% to RMB22.7 billion (US$3.5 billion) in the fourth quarter of 2020 from RMB14.4 billion in the same period of 2019. The increase was driven by the total GTV growth of 65.4% to RMB1,120.0 billion (US$171.6 billion) in the fourth quarter of 2020 from RMB677.1 billion in the same period of 2019.

  • Net revenues from existing home transaction services increased by 56.1% to RMB9.2 billion (US$1.4 billion) in the fourth quarter of 2020 from RMB5.9 billion in the same period of 2019, primarily attributable to a 69.8% increase in GTV of existing home transactions to RMB584.7 billion (US$89.6 billion) in the fourth quarter of 2020 from RMB344.3 billion in the same period of 2019.

The growth rate of GTV of existing home transactions served by connected agents exceeded that of the revenue derived from platform service, franchise service and other value-added services, primarily due to fee remission on recruiting, training and other VAS services, as well as a decrease in the total amount of upfront onboard fee charged to newly connected stores; and

    (ii) commission revenue increased by 55.1% to RMB8.2 billion (US$1.3 billion) in the fourth quarter of 2020 from RMB5.3 billion in the same period of 2019, driven by the GTV of existing home transactions served by the Company’s Lianjia brand increased by 51.l% to RMB300.9 billion (US$46.1 billion) in the fourth quarter of 2020 from RMB199.1 billion in the same period of 2019.

  • Net revenues from new home transaction services increased by 58.8% to RMB12.9 billion (US$2.0 billion) in the fourth quarter of 2020 from RMB8.1 billion in the same period of 2019, primarily attributable to an increase of 55.5% in the GTV of new home transactions to RMB469.2 billion (US$71.9 billion) in the fourth quarter of 2020 from RMB301.7 billion in the same period of 2019. The GTV of new home transactions served by Lianjia brand increased by 26.0% to RMB80.5 billion (US$12.3 billion) from RMB63.8 billion in the same period of 2019, while the GTV of new home transaction services completed on Beike platform through connected agents and other sales channels increased by 63.4% to RMB388.7 billion (US$59.6 billion) from RMB237.9 billion in the same period of 2019.
  • Net revenues from emerging and other services increased by 58.1% to RMB0.6 billion (US$0.1 billion) in the fourth quarter of 2020 from RMB0.4 billion in the same period of 2019. The increase was primarily attributable to the increase of penetration level in the Company’s financial services around the housing transaction services, as well as increased number of home decorations units completed through the Company’s platform.

Cost of Revenues

Total cost of revenues increased by 48.2% to RMB17.2 billion (US$2.6 billion) in the fourth quarter of 2020 from RMB11.6 billion in the same period of 2019, primarily attributable to the increase in both split commission to connected agents and other sales channels, and internal commission and compensation.

  • Commission – split. The Company’s cost of revenues for commissions to connected agents and other sales channels increased by 59.2% to RMB8.7 billion (US$1.3 billion) in the fourth quarter of 2020 from RMB5.5 billion in the same period of 2019.

  • Commission and compensation – internal. The Company’s cost of revenues for internal commission and compensation increased by 38.6% to RMB6.8 billion (US$1.0 billion) in the fourth quarter of 2020 from RMB4.9 billion in the same period of 2019.

The Company’s cost related to stores increased by 19.0% to RMB0.9 billion (US$0.1 billion) in the fourth quarter of 2020 as compared to RMB0.8 billion in the same period of 2019, mainly due to the increase in the number of stores under Lianjia brand in top tier cities with higher rental cost, as well as a moderate increase in store level rental cost year-over-year.
  • Other cost. The Company’s other cost increased by 71.0% to RMB0.8 billion (US$0.1 billion) in the fourth quarter of 2020 as compared to RMB0.5 billion in the same period of 2019, mainly due to the increase in share-based compensation.

Gross margin increased to 23.9% in the fourth quarter of 2020 from 19.1% in the same period of 2019.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses adjusted income (loss) from operations, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted net income (loss) attributable to KE Holdings Inc., adjusted operating margin, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income (loss) per ADS attributable to KE Holdings Inc.’s ordinary shareholders, each a non-GAAP financial measure, in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. Beike believes that these non-GAAP financial measures help identify underlying trends in the Company’s business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain expenses that the Company includes in its net income (loss). Beike also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information about its results of operations, 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. A limitation of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that these non-GAAP financial measures exclude share-based compensation expenses that have been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense in the Company’s business.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to gross profit, net income (loss) or any other measure of performance or as an indicator of its operating performance. Investors are encouraged to review these non-GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. The non-GAAP financial measures presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures to the Company’s data. Beike encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure. Adjusted income (loss) from operations is defined as income (loss) from operations, excluding (i) share-based compensation expenses, (ii) amortization of intangible assets resulting from acquisitions and business cooperation agreement, (iii) changes in fair value of financial assets recognized as deemed marketing expenses and (iv) impairment of goodwill and intangible assets.
