Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 Compared to Three Months Ended March 31, 2020

Revenue

Our total GAAP revenue increased by 146.7% to US$1.8 billion in the first quarter of 2021 from US$714.9 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase was mainly driven by the growth in each of the segments detailed as follows:

Digital Entertainment: GAAP revenue increased by 111.4% to US$781.3 million in the first quarter of 2021 from US$369.7 million in the first quarter of 2020. This increase was primarily due to the increase in our active user base as well as the deepened paying user penetration, and in particular, the continued success of our self-developed game Free Fire.
E-commerce and other services: GAAP revenue increased by 189.8% to US$772.4 million in the first quarter of 2021 from US$266.5 million in the first quarter of 2020. This increase was primarily driven by the growth in the scale of our e-commerce marketplace, and increase in each of its revenue streams, including transaction-based fees, value-added services, and advertising. It benefited from our commitment to continuously enhance our service offerings as we strive to create greater value for our platform users.
Sales of goods: GAAP revenue increased by 166.8% to US$209.9 million in the first quarter of 2021 from US$78.7 million in the first quarter of 2020, primarily due to the increase in our product offerings.

Cost of Revenue

Our total cost of revenue increased by 120.1% to US$1.1 billion in the first quarter of 2021 from US$508.1 million in the first quarter of 2020.

Digital Entertainment: Cost of revenue increased by 74.0% to US$248.2 million in the first quarter of 2021 from US$142.7 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase was largely in line with the increase in our digital entertainment revenue. Improvement in gross profit margins was largely due to higher revenue contribution from our self-developed game.
E-commerce and other services: Cost of revenue for our e-commerce and other services segment combined increased by 136.2% to US$674.5 million in the first quarter of 2021 from US$285.5 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily due to higher costs of the logistics and other value-added services that we provide to our users, and other costs incurred in line with the growth of our e-commerce marketplace. Improvement in gross profit margins was mainly due to improvement in our marketplace take-rate as we continue to enhance our service offerings.
Cost of goods sold: Cost of goods sold increased by 144.6% to US$195.5 million in the first quarter of 2021 from US$79.9 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase was largely in line with the increase in our revenue from sales of goods.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we use the following non-GAAP financial measures to help evaluate our operating performance:

· 'Net loss excluding share-based compensation' represents net loss before share-based compensation. This financial measure helps to identify underlying trends in our business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain expenses that are included in net loss. The use of this measure has its limitations in that it does not include all items that impact the net loss or income for the period, and share-based compensation are significant expenses.
· 'Net loss excluding share-based compensation attributable to Sea Limited's ordinary shareholders' represents net loss attributable to Sea Limited's ordinary shareholders before share-based compensation. This financial measure helps to identify underlying trends in our business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain expenses that are included in net loss. The use of this measure has its limitations in that it does not include all items that impact the net loss or income for the period, and share-based compensation are significant expenses.
· 'Basic and diluted loss per share based on net loss excluding share-based compensation attributable to Sea Limited's ordinary shareholders' represents net loss excluding share-based compensation attributable to Sea Limited's ordinary shareholders divided by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period.
· 'Adjusted EBITDA' for our digital entertainment segment represents operating income (loss) before share-based compensation plus (a) depreciation and amortization expenses, and (b) the net effect of changes in deferred revenue and its related cost for our digital entertainment segment. We believe that the segment adjusted EBITDA helps to identify underlying trends in our operating results, enhancing their understanding of the past performance and future prospects.
· 'Adjusted EBITDA' for our e-commerce segment, digital financial services segment and other services segment represents operating income (loss) before share-based compensation plus depreciation and amortization expenses. We believe that the segment adjusted EBITDA helps to identify underlying trends in our operating results, enhancing their understanding of the past performance and future prospects.
· 'Total adjusted EBITDA' represents the sum of adjusted EBITDA of all our segments combined, plus unallocated expenses. We believe that the total adjusted EBITDA helps to identify underlying trends in our operating results, enhancing their understanding of the past performance and future prospects.

These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. None of the above financial measures should be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to revenue, net loss/income, or any other measure of performance or as an indicator of our operating performance. These 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 Sea's data. We compensate for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to their nearest U.S. GAAP financial measures, all of which should be considered when evaluating our performance. We encourage you to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on any single financial measure.
