(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20090402/CNTH020 )

Second quarter 2012 Highlights

  • Total revenues reached a record US$147.3 million, an increase of 8% quarter-over-quarter and an increase of 30% year-over-year, exceeding the high end of the Company's guidance by US$3.8 million.
  • Online game revenues reached a record US$137.2 million, an increase of 8% quarter-over-quarter and 35% year-over-year, exceeding the high end of the Company's guidance by US$4.2 million.
  • Net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited was US$69.1 million, or US$1.29 per fully diluted ADS[1]. Net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited increased 6% quarter-over-quarter and 14% year-over-year.
  • Non-GAAP[2] net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited reached a record US$72.3 million, or US$1.35 per fully diluted ADS. Non-GAAP net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited increased 9% quarter-over-quarter and 16% year-over-year, exceeding the high end of the Company's guidance by US$12.3 million.

Mr. Tao Wang, Changyou's chief executive officer, commented, "The second quarter has underscored once again the staying power of Tian Long Ba Bu and the early strong reception of our new web game, Wartune (also known as Shen Qu). Our strong financial performance demonstrates the resilience of the online games business to business cycles and the current economic slowdown. Looking ahead, the outlook for online games is strong, particularly as gamers globally increasingly demand quick access to games online and as new game formats, like web games, gain popularity. With the launch of several MMO and web games in the second half of the year, we look to acquire more users and capture market share to further strengthen our position as a leading game developer and operator in China."

Mr. Dewen Chen, president and chief operating officer, continued, "We have been working behind the scenes to turn our online games portal, 17173.com, into an even more important resource for the online games industry. In addition to MMO games, we will be covering the fast-evolving web game and mobile game markets. It takes time to build up the resources, including star quality journalists, to do this, but we are making solid progress. Meanwhile, we continue to see strong demand for advertising on 17173.com. As we work on enhancing the website and expanding news coverage, we look to further enhance the leading position of 17173.com within the game portals and online game communities in China."

Mr. Alex Ho, Changyou's chief financial officer, added, "We set new records for both top-line and bottom-line performance during the quarter. Our ongoing MMO games business and acquired web game and online advertising business generated higher returns and rich cash flows, while we implemented cost control measures that led to cost savings. With a strong cash position and a proven cash generative business, we have capacity to continue investing in the development and marketing of games and in emerging growth opportunities that can further increase shareholder value."

Second Quarter 2012 Operational Results 

The Company's operational results for the second quarter of 2012, which exclude those of 7Road's games, were as follows:

  • Aggregate registered accounts for the Company's games[3] increased 6% quarter-over-quarter and 51% year-over-year to 199.5 million.
  • Aggregate PCU for the Company's games were flat quarter-over-quarter and increased 11% year-over-year to 1.08 million.
  • Aggregate APA for the Company's games decreased 16% quarter-over-quarter and decreased 10% year-over-year to 2.61 million. The decreases reflected a decline in the number of low-spending active paying accounts that did not make a purchase in the second quarter of 2012 as a result of less in-game promotions and the give-away of virtual items in TLBB to celebrate the game's fifth year anniversary.
  • ARPU for the Company's games increased 23% quarter-over-quarter and 31% year-over-year to RMB277. The increase was mainly due to the decline in low-spending active paying accounts in the second quarter of 2012.

7Road's operational results for the second quarter of 2012 were as follows:

  • Aggregate active accounts[4] for 7Road's games[5] were 54.3 million, an increase of 15% quarter-over-quarter. The increase in active accounts was mainly due to new gamers on third-party web platforms playing Wartune (also known as Shen Qu) in the second quarter of 2012.
  • Aggregate active charging accounts[6] for 7Road's games was 1.74 million, an increase of 12% quarter-over-quarter. The increase in active charging accounts was mainly due to an increase in the number of active charging accounts for Wartune in the second quarter of 2012.
  • Average revenue recognized per active charging account[7] ("ARCA") for 7Road's games were RMB62, an increase of 24% quarter-over-quarter. The increase was mainly because of more paying players in Wartune, which tends to have a higher ARCA than DDTank .

Second Quarter 2012 Unaudited Financial Results

Revenues

Total revenues for the second quarter of 2012 increased 8% quarter-over-quarter and 30% year-over-year to US$147.3 million.

Online game revenues, which include revenues from Changyou's game operations and overseas licensing revenues and revenues from 7Road, increased 8% quarter-over-quarter and 35% year-over-year to US$137.2 million. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly due to the ongoing popularity of TLBB and the growth of Wartune in China. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to a full quarter's revenue contribution from 7Road, the ongoing popularity of TLBB and the growth of Wartune in China.

Online advertising revenues, which consist of revenues generated from the 17173 business, increased 11% quarter-over-quarter and 10% year-over-year to US$9.1 million. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly due to the seasonal pickup typical for advertising in China. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to higher advertising prices in the second quarter of 2012 than in the second quarter last year.

Other revenues, which consist of cinema advertising revenues, were US$1.1 million, down 7% quarter-over-quarter and 69% year-over-year. The decreases were mainly due to continued streamlining of the cinema advertising business in the second quarter.

Gross profit

Gross profit and non-GAAP gross profit increased 7% quarter-over-quarter and 26% year-over-year to US$123.8 million. Both gross margin and non-GAAP gross margin were 84%, compared with 84% in the first quarter of 2012 and 87% in the second quarter of 2011.

Gross profit and non-GAAP gross profit of the online games business increased 7% quarter-over-quarter and 30% year-over-year to US$118.9 million. Both gross margin and non-GAAP gross margin of the online games business were 87%, compared with 87% in the first quarter of 2012, and 90% in the second quarter of 2011. The year-over-year decline in gross margin and non-GAAP gross margin for the online games business was mainly due to an increase in headcount and related salaries and benefits expenses and higher bandwidth and server costs as Changyou operated a larger portfolio of online games in the second quarter of 2012.

Gross profit and non-GAAP gross profit of the online advertising business increased 14% quarter-over-quarter and 5% year-over-year to US$7.7 million. Both gross margin and non-GAAP gross margin of the online advertising business was 85%, compared with 83% in the first quarter of 2012 and 89% in the second quarter of 2011. The quarter-over-quarter increases in gross margin and non-GAAP gross margin for the online advertising business were mainly due to an increase in online advertising revenues in the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year decreases in gross margin and non-GAAP gross margin for the online advertising business were mainly due to higher bandwidth and server costs in the second quarter of 2012.

Gross loss and non-GAAP gross loss of other business were US$2.8 million compared with US$2.4 million in the first quarter of 2012 and US$650,000 in the second quarter of 2011.

Operating expenses

Total operating expenses increased 18% quarter-over-quarter and 41% year-over-year to US$42.0 million.

Product development expenses were US$16.8 million, a decrease of 3% quarter-over-quarter and an increase 35% year-over-year. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly due to decreased expenses related to royalties for licensed games, which was partially offset by an increase in salaries and benefits in the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to an increase in salaries and benefits after Changyou hired more game engineers in the second quarter of 2012.

Sales and marketing expenses were US$14.5 million, an increase of 48% quarter-over-quarter and 30% year-over-year. The quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year increases were mainly due to higher advertising spending for the promotion of new game launches and expansion packs in the second quarter of 2012.

General and administrative expenses were US$7.8 million, a decrease of 8% quarter-over-quarter and an increase of 26% year-over-year. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly due to a reduction in bad debt expenses related to the cinema advertising business in the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to an increase in headcount and related salaries and benefits expenses in the second quarter of 2012.

Operating profit

Operating profit increased 2% quarter-over-quarter and 19% year-over-year to US$81.8 million. Operating margin was 56%, compared with 58% in the first quarter of 2012 and 60% in the second quarter of 2011.

Non-GAAP operating profit increased 6% quarter-over-quarter and 22% year-over-year to US$85.7 million. Non-GAAP operating margin was 58%, compared with 59% in the first quarter of 2012 and 62% in the second quarter of 2011.

Non-GAAP net income increased 9% quarter-over-quarter and increased 17% year-over-year to US$73.4 million. Non-GAAP net margin was 50%, compared with 49% in the first quarter of 2012 and 55% in the second quarter of 2011.

Business Outlook

For the third quarter of 2012, Changyou expects:

  • Total revenues to be between US$153 million and US$157 million, including online game revenues of US$141 million to US$144 million and online advertising revenues of US$11 million to US$12 million
  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited to be between US$70 million and US$72 million
  • Non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per ADS attributable to Changyou.com Limited to be between US$1.31 and US$1.35.
  • Assuming no new grants of share-based awards, share-based compensation expense to be between US$1.0 million and US$1.5 million, reducing fully diluted earnings per ADS attributable to Changyou.com Limited by US$0.02 to US$0.03.

Basis of Presentation for Unaudited Financial Results

On December 15, 2011, Changyou completed the acquisition from Sohu of the 17173 business. As Changyou and the 17173 business were under common control by Sohu both before and after the acquisition, in accordance with ASC 805-50, Changyou's unaudited consolidated financial information reported in this press release, unless otherwise stated, has been prepared as if the 17173 business had been owned and operated by Changyou throughout the periods presented.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

To supplement the unaudited consolidated financial information prepared in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), Changyou's management uses non-GAAP measures of gross profit, operating profit, net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited and diluted net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited per ADS, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude the compensation cost of share-based awards granted, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income from the reversal of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions. These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results.

Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company revised its non-GAAP reporting methodology to exclude goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income from the reversal of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions, in addition to its historical practice of excluding share-based compensation expense from non-GAAP results.

Changyou's management believes that excluding share-based compensation expense, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income from the reversal of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for itself and investors. Further, the amount of share-based compensation expense, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income from the reversal of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions cannot be anticipated by management, and these expenses are not built into the Company's annual budgets and quarterly forecasts, which generally will be the basis for information Changyou provides to analysts and investors as guidance for future operating performance. As share-based compensation expense, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income from the reversal of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions does not involve subsequent cash outflow, Changyou does not factor this in when evaluating and approving expenditures or when determining the allocation of its resources to its business operations. As a result, in general, the monthly financial results for internal reporting and any performance measure for commissions and bonuses are based on non-GAAP financial measures that exclude share-based compensation expense, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income from the reversal of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions.

The non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of Changyou's current financial performance and prospects for the future. A limitation of using non-GAAP gross profit, operating profit, net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited and diluted net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited per ADS, excluding share-based compensation expense, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income from the reversal of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions, is that the share-based compensation charge has been and will continue to be a significant recurring expense in the Company's business for the foreseeable future, and goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income from the reversal of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions may recur in the future. In order to mitigate these limitations the Company has provided specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying tables include details on the reconciliation between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to the non-GAAP financial measures the Company has presented.

Notes to Financial Information

Financial information in this press release other than the information indicated as being non-GAAP is derived from Changyou's unaudited financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Mezzanine equity consists of non-controlling interests in 7Road and a put option that gives the non-controlling shareholders the right to put their shares to Changyou at a pre-determined price if 7Road achieves specified performance milestones before the expiry of the put option and 7Road does not complete an initial public offering on NASDAQ, the New York Stock Exchange or The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong by 2014. The put option will expire in 2014. Non-controlling interests of 7Road and the put option are classified as mezzanine equity in Changyou's consolidated balance sheets, as redemption of the non-controlling interests is not solely within the control of Changyou.

In accordance with ASC subtopic 480-10, Changyou accretes the balance of non-controlling interests to its redemption value over the period from the date of 7Road acquisition to the earliest exercise date of the put right. Any subsequent changes in the redemption value are considered to be changes in accounting estimates and are also recognized over the same period as net income attributable to mezzanine classified non-controlling interests.
