Commenting on the results, Rick Yan, President and Chief Executive Officer of 51job, said, "We continued to direct our efforts on generating high quality revenues in the third quarter.  Our other HR services area maintained a solid growth trajectory driven by the recurring nature and usage of our outsourcing services by enterprises.  In the online business, our emphasis on upselling and deepening wallet share within our core customer base is also seeing progress.  Although recruitment market conditions remain soft, employers realize the superior value of our services, with average revenue per unique employer increasing both year-over-year and sequentially in the third quarter.  As we execute our strategic plan and expand our product coverage to new segments and platforms, we are clear on what employers, job seekers and shareholders expect from us and what we are committed to consistently deliver to them: the best service, results and returns in the HR industry in China."

Third Quarter 2015 Unaudited Financial Results

Total revenues for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015 were RMB525.0 million (US$82.6 million), an increase of 10.8% from RMB474.0 million for the same quarter in 2014.

Online recruitment services revenues for the third quarter of 2015 were RMB342.0 million (US$53.8 million), representing an 8.4% increase from RMB315.5 million for the same quarter of the prior year.  The growth was due to a combination of a greater number of unique employers utilizing the Company's online services and the realization of higher revenue per unique employer.  Unique employers increased 4.2% to 295,683 in the third quarter of 2015 compared with 283,651 in the same quarter of the prior year driven by new customer additions.  Although prices for online services were generally unchanged over the past year, average revenue per unique employer increased 4.0% in the third quarter of 2015 as compared with the same quarter in 2014 primarily due to strengthened upselling efforts by the salesforce which resulted in the purchase of higher value services by customers.

Print advertising revenues for the third quarter of 2015 decreased 33.4% to RMB1.3 million (US$0.2 million) compared with RMB2.0 million for the same quarter in 2014.  The estimated number of print advertising pages generated in the third quarter of 2015 was 10 pages compared with 19 pages in the same quarter in 2014.  The Company currently operates a print publication in the city of Xian.

Other human resource related revenues for the third quarter of 2015 increased 16.1% to RMB181.6 million (US$28.6 million) from RMB156.5 million in the same quarter of 2014.  The increase was primarily due to the continued growing trend in customer adoption and usage of business process outsourcing services.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2015 increased 9.4% to RMB365.4 million (US$57.5 million) from RMB334.0 million for the same quarter of the prior year.  Gross margin, which is gross profit as a percentage of net revenues, was 71.2% in the third quarter of 2015 compared with 72.9% in the same quarter in 2014 due to staff additions and higher labor costs.

Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2015 increased 11.8% to RMB230.6 million (US$36.3 million) from RMB206.2 million for the same quarter of 2014.  Sales and marketing expenses for the third quarter of 2015 increased 14.9% to RMB165.2 million (US$26.0 million) from RMB143.8 million for the same quarter of the prior year primarily due to headcount additions and higher employee compensation expenses.  General and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2015 increased 4.7% to RMB65.4 million (US$10.3 million) from RMB62.4 million in the third quarter of 2014 primarily due to higher employee compensation expenses and office expenses, which was partially offset by lower professional services fees in the third quarter of 2015.

Income from operations for the third quarter of 2015 increased 5.5% to RMB134.9 million (US$21.2 million) from RMB127.8 million for the third quarter of 2014.  Operating margin, which is income from operations as a percentage of net revenues, was 26.3% in the third quarter of 2015 compared with 27.9% in the same quarter of 2014.  Excluding share-based compensation expense, operating margin would be 30.2% in the third quarter of 2015 compared with 32.6% in the same quarter of 2014.

The Company recognized a loss from foreign currency translation of RMB35.2 million (US$5.5 million) in the third quarter of 2015 compared with RMB0.4 million in the third quarter of 2014 due primarily to the impact of the depreciation of the Renminbi against the US dollar on the US$172.5 million convertible senior notes issued and sold by the Company in April 2014.

In the third quarter of 2015, the Company recognized a mark-to-market, non-cash gain of RMB54.5 million (US$8.6 million) associated with a change in the fair value of convertible notes compared with RMB58.5 million in the third quarter of 2014.

Other income in the third quarter of 2015 included local government financial subsidies of RMB16.0 million (US$2.5 million) compared with RMB5.2 million in the third quarter of 2014.

Net income attributable to 51job for the third quarter of 2015 was RMB165.9 million (US$26.1 million) compared with RMB187.2 million for the same quarter in 2014.  Fully diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of 2015 were RMB2.62 (US$0.41) compared with RMB2.17 for the same quarter in 2014.

In the third quarter of 2015, total share-based compensation expense was RMB20.1 million (US$3.2 million) compared with RMB21.3 million in the third quarter of 2014.

Excluding share-based compensation expense, loss from foreign currency translation and change in fair value of convertible notes, as well as the related tax effect of these items, non-GAAP adjusted net income attributable to 51job for the third quarter of 2015 increased 10.9% to RMB166.8 million (US$26.2 million) compared with RMB150.4 million for the third quarter of 2014.  Non-GAAP adjusted fully diluted earnings per share were RMB2.82 (US$0.44) in the third quarter of 2015 compared with RMB2.52 in the third quarter of 2014.

Nine Months 2015 Unaudited Financial Results

Total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 were RMB1,491.1 million (US$234.6 million), an increase of 8.9% from RMB1,368.7 million for the same period in 2014.  Income from operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 increased 2.9% to RMB380.7 million (US$59.9 million) from RMB370.0 million for the same period in 2014.

Net income attributable to 51job for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was RMB476.2 million (US$74.9 million) compared with RMB357.7 million for the same period in 2014.  Fully diluted earnings per common share for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was RMB7.33 (US$1.15) compared with RMB5.95 for the same period in 2014.

Excluding share-based compensation expense, gain/loss from foreign currency translation, convertible senior notes issuance costs, change in fair value of convertible notes and change in fair value of zero-strike call options, as well as the related tax effect of these items, non-GAAP adjusted net income attributable to 51job for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 increased 8.2% to RMB490.8 million (US$77.2 million) from RMB453.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014.  Non-GAAP adjusted fully diluted earnings per common share were RMB8.25 (US$1.30) for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared with RMB7.49 in the same period in 2014.

As of September 30, 2015, cash and short-term investments totaled RMB4,713.9 million (US$741.7 million) compared with RMB4,494.7 million as of December 31, 2014.  Short-term investments consist of certificates of deposit with original maturities from three months to one year.

Business Outlook

Based on current market conditions, the Company's total revenues target for the fourth quarter of 2015 is in the estimated range of RMB580 million to RMB600 million (US$91.3 million to US$94.4 million).  Excluding share-based compensation expense, any gain or loss from foreign currency translation, and any mark-to-market gain or loss associated with a change in fair value of convertible notes, as well as the related tax effect of these items, the Company's non-GAAP fully diluted earnings target for the fourth quarter of 2015 is in the estimated range of RMB2.50 to RMB2.70 (US$0.39 to US$0.42) per share.  The Company expects total share-based compensation expense in the fourth quarter of 2015 to be in the estimated range of RMB20 million to RMB21 million (US$3.1 million to US$3.3 million).

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), 51job uses non-GAAP financial measures of income before income tax expense, income tax expense, adjusted net income, adjusted net income attributable to 51job and adjusted earnings per share, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude share-based compensation expense, gain/loss from foreign currency translation, convertible senior notes issuance costs, change in fair value of convertible notes and change in fair value of zero-strike call options, as well as the related tax effect of these items.  The Company believes excluding share-based compensation expense and its related tax effect from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for its management and investors to assess and analyze the Company's core operating results as such expense is not directly attributable to the underlying performance of the Company's business operations and do not impact its cash earnings.  The Company believes excluding gain/loss from foreign currency translation and its related tax effect from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for its management and investors as such translation gain/loss is not indicative of the Company's core business operations and will not result in cash settlement nor impact the Company's cash earnings.  The Company believes excluding convertible senior notes issuance costs and its related tax effect from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for its management and investors as such costs are one-time, non-recurring and not attributable to the underlying performance of the Company's business.  The Company believes excluding changes in fair value of convertible notes and zero-strike call options, as well as their related tax effect, from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for its management and investors as such changes are not indicative of the Company's core business operations and will not result in cash settlement nor impact the Company's cash earnings.  51job also believes these non-GAAP financial measures excluding share-based compensation expense, gain/loss from foreign currency translation, convertible senior notes issuance costs, change in fair value of convertible notes and change in fair value of zero-strike call options, as well as the related tax effect of these items, are important in helping investors to understand the Company's current financial performance and future prospects and to compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis.  The presentation of these additional measures should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results or as being comparable to results reported or forecasted by other companies.  The non-GAAP measures have been reconciled to GAAP measures in the attached financial statements.

(3) Diluted earnings per share is calculated in accordance with the "if converted" method.  This includes the add-back of interest expense of RMB16,502 and RMB25,995 (US$4,090) related to the convertible senior notes to the numerator of non-GAAP adjusted net income attributable to 51job for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2015, respectively. The weighted average maximum number of 2,690,448 potentially converted shares related to the convertible senior notes was added to the denominator of diluted common shares for the nine months ended September 30, 2014.
