Third Quarter 2011 Operational Highlights(4)

  • Added 23 net leased-and-operated hotels and 93 net managed hotels in the third quarter 2011.
  • As of September 30, 2011, 7 Days Group had 838 hotels in operation, consisting of 364 leased-and-operated hotels and 474 managed hotels, representing a total of 83,487 rooms covering 127 cities. Additionally, there were 20 Huatian Star hotels started operations after rebranding to 7 Days Inn and 1 Huatian Star hotel in the pipeline.
  • As of September 30, 2011, there were a total of 251 hotels in pipeline, including 43 leased-and-operated hotels under conversion and 208 managed hotels contracted but not yet opened.
  • Third quarter 2011 occupancy rate for leased-and-operated hotels, managed hotels and overall occupancy rate for the period were 88.3%, 83.0% and 85.5%, respectively, compared to 93.7%, 89.3% and 92.2%, respectively, in the third quarter of 2010. The year-over-year decrease in occupancy rates in the third quarter of 2011 was primarily a result of the impact of the 2010 Shanghai Expo held from May 1 to Oct 31, 2010, as occupancy rates in the third quarter of 2010 in Shanghai and surrounding areas benefitted from traffic driven by the Expo. Occupancy rates for managed hotels also declined due to the proportionally higher number of new hotels in the portfolio mix.
  • RevPAR(5) for leased-and-operated hotels for the period was RMB153.1, compared to RMB157.3 in the same period in the fiscal year 2010. RevPAR for managed hotels for the period was RMB135.9, compared to RMB146.2 for the same period in fiscal 2010.  The year-over-year decrease in RevPAR in the third quarter of 2011 was a result of the impact of the 2010 Shanghai Expo and a higher proportion of hotels located in lower tier cities as compared to the prior year period.
  • As of September 30, 2011, the number of 7 Days Club members increased by 97.3% to over 27.7 million from over 14 million as of September 30, 2010.

(1) As announced on July 1, 2011, 7 Days Group reached an agreement to acquire 100% ownership of 21 leased-and-operated hotels from Hunan Huatian Star Hotel Management Limited ("Huatian Star"). As Huatian Star is a state-owned company, the completion of the transaction is required to follow specific legal procedures, which are still in progress. The Company expects the transaction to close in the near future. However, 7 Days Group has already taken operational responsibilities over the 21 leased-and-operated hotels and completed the conversion process for the majority of properties. 7 Days Group has therefore included the pertinent net costs from the Huatian Star hotels in its third quarter 2011 income statement as "other hotel operating costs."

(2) The Company's reporting currency is Renminbi ("RMB"). The translation of amounts from RMB to United States Dollars is solely for the convenience of the reader. RMB amounts included in this press release have been translated into U.S. dollars at the exchange rate of September 30, 2011 as set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board, which was US$1.00 = RMB6.3780.  No representation is made that RMB amounts could have been, or could be, converted into U.S. Dollars at that rate or at any other rate on September 30, 2011.

(3) Each ADS represents 3 of the Company's ordinary shares.

(4) Operational data did not include any impact from Huatian Star

(5) RevPAR represents revenue per available room

Recent Business Developments:

Mr. Alex Nanyan Zheng, 7 Days Group's Chief Executive Officer and Director, commented, "We delivered healthy results in the third quarter, and net revenue excluding Huatian Star exceeded our guidance. The continued expansion of our hotel base throughout 2011, both in terms of the number of hotels and our geographic reach, has fueled our top-line performance and provides us with a strong platform to deliver long-term growth. Looking ahead, we still see significant market opportunity in the economy hotel segment. With our unique competitive edge, we expect to open 120 net new leased-and-operated hotels and 240 managed hotels in 2012. We remain committed to executing our expansion strategy and believe that we are well positioned to deliver further growth and development in the year ahead."  

Mr. Eric Haibing Wu, 7 Days Group's Chief Financial Officer, added, "Our underlying financial performance for the third quarter remained strong. Going forward, we will keep expanding our hotel network and further leverage economies of scales and streamline costs to deliver sustainable growth and improve profitability."

About 7 Days Group Holdings Limited

7 Days Group is a leading and fast growing national economy hotel chain based in China. It converts and operates limited service economy hotels across major metropolitan areas in China under its award-winning "7 Days Inn" brand. The Company strives to offer consistent and high-quality accommodations and services primarily to the growing population of value conscious business and leisure travelers who demand affordable, clean, comfortable, convenient and safe lodging, and to respond to its guests' needs.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures  

To supplement 7 Days Group's unaudited financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company has used the following non-GAAP measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") to report its financial results:

-- Non-GAAP income from operations represents income from operations reported in accordance with GAAP, excluding share-based compensation expense.

-- Non-GAAP net income represents net income reported in accordance with GAAP, excluding share-based compensation expense.

-- Non-GAAP earnings per ADS represents non-GAAP net income divided by the number of ADS used in computing basic and diluted earnings per ADS.    

-- EBITDA represents net income reported in accordance with GAAP, adjusted for the effects of interest income and expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization.

-- Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA, excluding share-based compensation expense.

The Company believes EBITDA is a useful financial metric to assess its operating and financial performance before the impact of investing and financing transactions, if any, and income taxes. In addition, 7 Days Group believes that EBITDA is widely used by other companies in the lodging industry and may be used by investors as a measure of its financial performance. Given the significant investments that 7 Days Group has made in the past in property and equipment, depreciation and amortization expense comprises a meaningful portion of its cost structure. 7 Days Group believes that EBITDA will provide investors with a useful tool for comparability between periods because it eliminates depreciation and amortization expense attributable to capital expenditures. The presentation of EBITDA should not be construed as an indication that the Company's future results will be unaffected by other charges and gains the Company considers to be outside the ordinary course of its business.  7 Days Group also calculates Adjusted EBITDA excluding share-based compensation expense. The Company prepares its financial statements in accordance with GAAP and, accordingly, expenses its employee share options. Since share-based compensation expenses are non-cash expenses, the Company believes excluding them from its calculation of EBITDA allows it to provide investors with a more useful tool for assessing its operating and financial performance.

The use of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations. Depreciation and amortization expense for various long-term assets, such as property and equipment, income tax expense, interest expense and interest income have been and will be incurred and are not reflected in the presentation of EBITDA. Each of these items should also be considered in the overall evaluation of its results. Additionally, EBITDA does not consider capital expenditures and other investing activities and should not be considered as a measure of the Company's liquidity. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing the relevant disclosure of its depreciation and amortization, interest expense and interest income, income tax expense, capital expenditures, share-based compensation expense and other relevant items both in its reconciliations to the GAAP financial measures and in its consolidated financial statements, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company's performance. The terms EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not defined under GAAP, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of net income, operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. When assessing the Company's operating and financial performance, investors should not consider this data in isolation or as a substitute for the Company's net income, operating income or any other operating performance measure that is calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the Company's EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA or similarly titled measures utilized by other companies since such other companies may not calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA in the same manner as the Company does.  

For reasons same to the use of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA described above, the Company has also reported net income, basic and diluted earnings per ADS and income (loss) from operations on a non-GAAP basis, excluding share-based compensation expenses in the relevant period.  These non-GAAP operating measures are useful for understanding and assessing the Company's underlying business performance and operating trends and the Company expects to report net income, basic and diluted earnings per ADS and income from operations on a non-GAAP basis using a consistent method on a quarterly basis going forward.  

7 Days Group believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing 7 Days Group's financial performance and liquidity and when planning and forecasting future periods. Readers are cautioned not to view non-GAAP results on a stand-alone basis or as a substitute for results under GAAP, or as being comparable to results reported or forecasted by other companies, and should refer to the reconciliation of GAAP results with non-GAAP results for the periods set forth in the tables at the end of this release.
