Financial Results for the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2012

Net Revenue

Total net revenue for the second quarter of 2012 was $18.1 million, a 4.5 percent increase from $17.3 million in the corresponding period in 2011.

Net revenue from online degree programs for the second quarter of 2012 was $14.5 million, a 4.5 percent increase over $13.9 million in the corresponding period in 2011. As seen in the previous quarter, the increase in net revenue from online degree programs in the second quarter was primarily due to organic growth in revenue students enrolled in core online degree programs. Growth was also attributed to greater revenue contribution from our learning centers network and increased revenue contribution from our online non-degree training programs. Enrollment for online degree programs in the Spring 2012 semester was approximately 193,000 revenue students, an increase of 21.4 percent from approximately 159,000 revenue students enrolled in the Spring 2011 semester.

As of June 30 2012, ChinaEdu's learning centers network was providing recruiting services for 22 universities with 113 operational learning centers, of which 55 were proprietary centers(6) and 58 were contracted centers(7). This compares to 100 operational learning centers as of June 30, 2011, of which 57 were proprietary and 43 were contracted centers.

Net revenue from non-degree programs, including online tutoring programs, private primary and secondary schools and international and elite curriculum programs, in the second quarter of 2012 was $3.6 million, a 4.5 percent increase from $3.5 million in the second quarter of 2011. The growth was mainly driven by an increase in student enrollments at our private schools in Anqing and Pingdingshan.

Cost of Revenue

Total cost of revenue for the second quarter of 2012 was $7.4 million, representing an increase of 6.4 percent, compared to $6.9 million in the corresponding period of 2011.

Cost of revenue for online degree programs in the second quarter of 2012 was $4.9 million, an increase of 5.2 percent from $4.6 million in the corresponding period of 2011. The increase in cost of revenue was primarily due to an increase in staff costs that resulted from a headcount increase across the Company.

Cost of revenue for non-degree programs in the second quarter of 2012 was $2.5 million, an increase of 8.8 percent from $2.3 million in the second quarter of 2011. The cost of revenue increase in this area of the business was primarily related to employee costs, leasing costs and service fees associated with our 101 online tutoring programs and teaching costs, dormitory, canteen and transportation costs related to our private primary schools in Anqing and Pingdingshan.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit in the second quarter of 2012 was $10.7 million, compared to $10.4 million in the corresponding period of 2011. Gross margin decreased slightly to 59.2 percent, compared to 59.9 percent in the corresponding period in 2011.

Gross margin for online degree programs decreased very slightly to 66.3 percent for the second quarter of 2012, compared to 66.5 percent in the corresponding period of 2011.

Gross margin for private schools decreased to 26.1 percent, compared to 29.3 percent in the corresponding period in 2011. The decrease was primarily due to increased teaching costs as well as dormitory, canteen and transportation costs at the Anqing School and Pingdingshan School.

Gross margin for online tutoring programs decreased to 57.7 percent, from 71.4 percent in second quarter of 2011, largely due to decreased barter transaction revenue as well as increased staff and leasing costs associated with these programs.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses were $7.2 million in the second quarter of 2012, representing a 7.6 percent decrease from $7.7 million in the corresponding period in 2011. As a percentage of net revenue, total operating expenses decreased to 39.5 percent, compared to 44.7 percent in the corresponding period in 2011. The decrease in the total operating expense was the result of the following:

  • General and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2012 were $3.8 million, a decrease of 1.5 percent compared to $3.9 million in the corresponding period in 2011. As a percentage of net revenue, general and administrative expenses decreased to 21.1 percent, compared with 22.4 percent in the same period in 2011, the result of increased net revenue.
  • Selling and marketing expenses were $1.8 million in the second quarter of 2012,a decrease of 19.6 percent compared to $2.2 million in the corresponding period in 2011.

  • Research and development expenses for the second quarter of 2012 were $1.6 million, a decrease of 5.8 percent compared to $1.7 million in the corresponding period in 2011, primarily because we deployed some research and development employees into maintaining services in 2012.  As a percentage of net revenue, the research and development expense was 8.6 percent in the second quarter of 2012, decreasing from 9.5 percent in the same period in 2011.
