"We are pleased to deliver another solid quarter, as we continue to perform well in our operating metrics, which is supported by the sustained strong performance of our second flagship game ZT Online 2. We are also pleased to see our profitability remain at a high level while we strengthen our commitment to R&D and sales and marketing, both of which are on pace with our new game launches," said Mr. Yuzhu Shi, Giant's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

"We are delighted that we have made encouraging progress during the quarter in all aspects, and we expect to see sustained progress in the performance of ZT Online 2, a title which we believe will go from strength to strength following the launch of its first expansion pack and upcoming micro-client version, Qianjun Online, on the Qihoo 360 game platform."

"In addition to launching the micro-version of ZT Online 2, a number of much-anticipated launches will occur in the second half of the year, as follows:"

"Allods Online, licensed from Russia's Mail.Ru, will be our first western-themed massively multiplayer online role playing game ("MMORPG"). With beautiful 3D graphics and deep gameplay, we expect the game to help us grow and diversify our user base beginning in the third quarter. In addition, we also expect the game to help us continue to gain valuable experience in publishing foreign games, an area in which we believe will present growth opportunities for us in the future."

"World of Xianxia, our next internally-developed MMORPG and major strategic product, also features beautiful 3D graphics with a Chinese fantasy theme. To stay ahead of the competition, we have pioneered GvG ("group versus group") gameplay and revolutionized the social structure within this game, to create another groundbreaking MMORPG following ZT Online 2's blockbuster success. We very much look forward to the second round of engineering testing in the third quarter and launch of this game in the fourth quarter, and we believe that it will further solidify our dominance in the MMORPG segment."

"The development of webgames is one of our strategic priorities. We see ample opportunities present in the fast growing webgame market in China, which we believe will not only bring a new source of revenue, but will also broaden our reach to overseas markets. Our webgame design teams are now fully underway and functional. While our development teams are focusing on designing new webgames, our operations and business development teams are actively seeking domestic and foreign partners to publish our webgames. We believe that such a two-pronged structure will enable us to maximize our ability to capture new growth opportunities in today's rapidly evolving online game market domestically and internationally. We expect to launch 3 webgames in the second half of this year. We also expect to cooperate with major online platforms in the future and leverage their large user bases to market our games and extend our reach to new players."

"We remain focused on diversifying and deepening our game development pipeline, which we believe will help us diversify beyond our existing users and provide continuous growth for the last quarter of this year and into 2013, as we rely less and less on our legacy games. We are confident that our innovative, high-quality games, our talented design teams, and our low cost structure will keep Giant at the forefront of the dynamic online game industry."

Second Quarter Fiscal 2012 Unaudited Financial Results 

Net Revenue.  Net revenue for the second quarter 2012 was RMB528.2 million (US$83.1 million), representing a 3.8% increase from RMB508.8 million in the first quarter 2012 and a 21.1% increase from RMB436.2 million in the second quarter 2011.

Revenue from online games in the second quarter 2012 totaled RMB505.9 million (US$79.6 million), representing an increase of 3.4% from RMB489.5 million in the first quarter 2012 and a 22.4% increase from RMB413.4 million in the second quarter 2011.  Online game net revenue increased sequentially and year-over-year quarterly primarily due to the growth of ZT Online 2.  

ACU for online games in the second quarter 2012 was 685,000, representing a 0.5% sequential increase and a 4.7% increase over the second quarter 2011.  ACU increased on a sequential and year-over-year basis primarily due to an increase in ZT Online 2 users. PCU for online games in the second quarter 2012 was 2,307,000, representing a 0.9% sequential increase and an 8.7% increase over the second quarter 2011. PCU increased on a sequential and year-over-year basis primarily due to the sustained popularity of ZT Online 2.  ARPU for online games in the second quarter 2012 increased 1.9% sequentially and 9.7% year-over-year quarterly to RMB233.  ARPU increased slightly on a sequential and year-over-year basis as users have gradually spent more as they progress through ZT Online 2.  APA for online games in the second quarter 2012 increased 1.4% sequentially and was up 11.1% from the second quarter 2011 to 2,216,000.  The sequential and year-over-year quarterly increases in APA were primarily due to the Company converting new users in ZT Online 2 into paying accounts.

Cost of Services.  Cost of services was RMB67.1 million (US$10.6 million), representing a decrease of 0.8% from the first quarter 2012 and a 5.8% increase from the second quarter 2011.  The slight sequential decrease in cost of services was mainly due to efficient cost control. The year-over-year quarterly increase was primarily due to the overall growth of our business operations.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin.  Gross profit for the second quarter 2012 was RMB461.1 million (US$72.6 million), representing a 4.5% sequential increase and a 23.7% year-over-year quarterly increase.  Gross margin for the second quarter 2012 was 87.3%, up from 86.7% in the first quarter 2012 and up from 85.5% in the second quarter 2011. 

Operating Expenses. Total operating expenses for the second quarter 2012 were RMB133.2 million (US$21.0 million), representing an increase of 7.3% from RMB124.2 million in the first quarter 2012 and a rise of 13.9% from RMB117.0 million in the second quarter 2011. As a percentage of revenue, total operating expenses were 25.2% for the second quarter 2012, compared to 24.4% in the first quarter 2012 and 26.8% in the second quarter 2011.  The sequential increase in operating expenses is mainly attributable to the increase in marketing campaigns for the first expansion pack for ZT Online 2 in the second quarter 2012.

Research and product development ("R&D") expenses for the second quarter 2012 increased 9.4% sequentially to RMB80.6 million (US$12.7 million) from RMB73.6 million in the first quarter 2012 and increased 35.5% year-over-year quarterly from RMB59.4 million in the second quarter 2011. As a percentage of revenue, R&D expenses were 15.3%, compared to 14.5% in the first quarter 2012 and 13.6% in the second quarter 2011. The sequential increase in R&D expenses is mainly attributable to expenses of certain game projects no longer being capitalized. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to increased investment in game development and share-based compensation expenses related to restricted shares granted at the end of November 2011.

Sales and marketing ("S&M") expenses were RMB47.7 million (US$7.5 million) in the second quarter 2012, up 111.6% sequentially from RMB22.5 million in the first quarter 2012 as the Company shifted marketing campaigns for the first expansion pack for ZT Online 2 from the first quarter to the second quarter 2012.  S&M expenses were up 19.0% year-over-year from RMB40.1 million in the second quarter 2011, which was also due to increased marketing related to ZT Online 2. As a percentage of revenue, S&M expenses were 9.0% in the second quarter 2012, compared to 4.4% in the first quarter 2012 and 9.2% in the second quarter 2011.

General and administrative expenses ("G&A") for the second quarter 2012 were RMB38.2 million (US$6.0 million), up 0.4% from RMB38.0 million in the first quarter 2012, and up 39.1% from RMB27.5 million in the second quarter 2011. As a percentage of revenue, G&A expenses were 7.2% in the second quarter 2012, compared 7.5% in the first quarter 2012 and 6.3% in the second quarter 2011. The sequential and year-over-year quarterly increases in G&A expenses were mainly attributable to share-based compensation expenses related to restricted shares granted at the end of November 2011.

Financial Incentive.  The financial incentive, which mainly relates to the refund of business tax, value-added tax, and enterprise income tax from the Shanghai municipal government, was RMB33.2 million (US$5.2 million) in the second quarter 2012.  It is treated as a reduction in operating expenses. 

Interest Income.  Interest income for the second quarter 2012 was RMB25.6 million (US$4.0 million), compared to RMB22.4 million in the first quarter 2012 and RMB41.1 million in the second quarter 2011.  Interest income increased sequentially due to the increase in our cash balance within the quarter, but decreased year-over-year due to the Company's lower cash balance after the payment of our one-time special cash dividend of US$3.00 per ADS in September 2011.

Income Tax.  Income tax expense for the second quarter 2012 was RMB36.3 million (US$5.7 million), compared to income tax expense of RMB28.4 million in the first quarter 2012 and income tax expense of RMB286.5 million in the second quarter 2011. Income tax expense increased sequentially due to the increase of pretax profit, and decreased year-over-year due to a one-time withholding tax accrued in the second quarter 2011 in connection with the repatriation of cash for a special cash dividend paid during the third quarter 2011. 

Net Income Attributable to the Company's Shareholders.  Net income attributable to the Company's shareholders for the second quarter 2012 was RMB307.2 million (US$48.4 million), an increase of 5.2% from RMB292.2 million in the first quarter 2012 and a year-over-year increase of 2,920.6% from RMB10.2 million in the second quarter 2011. Net income attributable to the Company's shareholders increased sequentially primarily due to the growth of our game operations, increase in financial incentive, and increase in other income. The year-over-year increase was a result of the growth of our game operations as well as a one-time withholding tax accrued in the second quarter 2011 in connection with the repatriation of cash for a special cash dividend paid during the third quarter 2011.  The margin of net income attributable to the Company's shareholders was 58.2% for the second quarter 2012, compared to 57.4% in the first quarter 2012 and 2.3% in the second quarter 2011.  

Cash, Cash Equivalents and Short-Term Investments.  As of June 30, 2012, our cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled RMB1,998.7 million (US$314.6 million), compared to RMB1,828.9 million as of March 31, 2012.  The sequential increase was primarily due to the growth of our cash balances as a result of our game operations.    

Business Highlights and Outlook

Existing Games

ZT Online 1 Series - During the second quarter 2012, ZT Online rolled out a series of PK tournaments to stimulate interaction among existing players and attract former players to return to the game. ZT Online Classic Edition also introduced a selection of new gameplays centering on in-game customization and interface improvements during the second quarter. ZT Online Green Edition, in its latest expansion pack, added more innovative features to the existing gameplays, updated several maps and gained a great amount of attention and positive feedback from gamers.

ZT Online 2 - During the second quarter 2012, we launched the first expansion pack for ZT Online 2 and reached 541,000 PCU on April 22, 2012. The expansion pack provides a better experience for gamers by including improvements in the following six areas: gameplay, new player tutorials, free gifting system, account security, social interactions and online activities. On July 27, 2012 we announced a collaboration with Qihoo 360 to operate Qianjun Online, the micro-client version of ZT Online 2, on Qihoo 360's platform. Qianjun Online is expected to be launched in August 2012 and we believe this collaboration will help us reach a larger user base. The Vietnamese version of ZT Online 2 was launched in the second quarter 2012 and we expect marketing campaigns related to the Vietnamese version will start in September 2012.

Elsword - In June 2012, an updated version of the game with a new character and new pets was released and well-received by gamers. The team is currently developing additional localized elements and instance dungeons.

The game will be based on the Unreal 3 engine and will be the first game developed in China using Microsoft's DirectX 11 multimedia protocol.
