Ms. Wei Liu, Giant's Chief Executive Officer commented, "We are proud to have successfully launched official closed beta testing for our newest flagship MMO, World of Xianxia, during the second quarter 2013. The game has attracted a sizable user base since its launch and has been contributing to our top line. Gamer feedback has been tremendously positive and we are confident that the game can reach new heights when we launch the open beta testing this fall."

"The successful commencement of official closed beta testing for World of Xianxia is a critical milestone in our overall MMO strategy, which remains as our core business and a key revenue contributor. As an innovator in online gameplay and monetization of the MMO segment in China, we are now in a better position to further grow this business and increase our market share as our peers have been increasingly focusing on other new growth areas with lower entry barriers such as webgames and mobile games. World of Xianxia exemplifies our plan to further diversify our product lines outside of the ZT Online franchise."

"We are also on track to strategically expand into new high growth areas such as webgames and mobile games. We plan to launch two webgames in the second half this year. In addition, we made good progress in our new mobile game development and plan to release our first in-house developed mobile game soon. We hope that these new games will start to contribute revenue in the fourth quarter this year and become a new milestone which leads to sustainable and diversified growth in the years to come."

"Alongside our self-developed titles, we are also pleased to announce that we recently entered into an agreement to be the exclusive publisher of Cang Tian 2 for mainland China. Cang Tian 2 is a free-to-play 3D Three Kingdoms MMORPG developed by WeMade in South Korea. We are currently working with the Korean developers to localize this game for the China market and hope to release it next year. Besides this great title, we continue to actively pursue other publishing opportunities to complement our self-developed portfolio."

"Lastly, to reiterate our commitment to return value to shareholders, we are announcing the first payment of our new semi-annual dividend program, which will be US$0.23 per ADS or ordinary share."

Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Unaudited Financial Results 

Net Revenue.  Net revenue for the second quarter 2013 was RMB588.1 million (US$95.8 million), representing a 2.7% increase from RMB572.8 million in the first quarter 2013, and an 11.3% increase from RMB528.2 million in the second quarter 2012.

Revenue from online games in the second quarter 2013 totaled RMB578.4 million (US$94.2million), representing a 3.8% increase from RMB557.3 million in the first quarter 2013 and a 14.3% increase from RMB505.9 million in the second quarter 2012.The sequential and year-over-year increases in online game net revenue were primarily due to the official closed beta launch of World of Xianxia.

APA for online games in the second quarter 2013 was 2,328,000 representing a 3.1% sequential increase and a 5.0% increase compared to the second quarter 2012. The sequential increase was mainly due to the launch of World of Xianxia and the year-over-year increase in APA was mainly due to the contribution from the ZT Online franchise and World of Xianxia. ARPU for online games in the second quarter 2013 was RMB244, representing a 2.5% sequential increase and a 4.8% increase compared to the second quarter 2012. The sequential and year-over-year increases in ARPU were mainly due to ZT Online 2 users spending more as they progress through the game. ACU for online games in the second quarter 2013 was 702,000, representing a 1.8% sequential increase and a 2.5% increase over the second quarter 2012. The sequential and year-over-year increases in ACU were mainly due to the contribution of World of Xianxia. PCU for online games in the second quarter 2013 was 2,319,000, representing a 1.6% sequential increase and a 0.5% increase over the second quarter 2012. The sequential and the year-over-year increases in PCU were also primarily due to the contribution of World of Xianxia.

Cost of Services.  Cost of services for the second quarter 2013 was RMB71.1 million (US$11.6 million), representing a 13.7% decrease from the first quarter 2013 and a 6.0% increase from the second quarter 2012. The sequential decrease in cost of services was mainly due to the higher costs accrued for the Company's licensed games in the first quarter 2013, while the year-over-year increase was mainly due to the overall growth of the Company's business operations.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin.  Gross profit for the second quarter 2013 was RMB517.0 million (US$84.2 million), representing a 5.4% increase from the first quarter 2013 and a 12.1% increase from the second quarter 2012. Gross margin for the second quarter 2013 was 87.9%, up from 85.6% in the first quarter 2013 and up from 87.3% in the second quarter 2012.

Operating Expenses. Total operating expenses for the second quarter 2013 were RMB159.4 million (US$26.0 million), representing a 23.0% increase from RMB129.6 million in the first quarter 2013 and a 19.7%  increase from RMB133.2 million in the second quarter 2012. As a percentage of revenue, total operating expenses were 27.1% for the second quarter 2013, compared to 22.6% in the first quarter 2013 and 25.2% in the second quarter 2012. The sequential increase in operating expenses was mainly due to the increase in sales and marketing ("S&M") expenses, while the year-over-year increase in operating expenses was mainly attributable to lower government financial incentives and higher S&M expenses in the second quarter 2013 as compared to the second quarter 2012.

R&D expenses for the second quarter 2013 were RMB80.8 million (US$13.2 million), representing a 4.1% increase from RMB77.6 million in the first quarter 2013 and remained flat compared  to  the second quarter 2012. As a percentage of revenue, R&D expenses were 13.7% for the second quarter 2013, compared to 13.5% in the first quarter 2013 and 15.3% in the second quarter 2012. The sequential increase in R&D expenses was mainly attributable to the bonuses accrued for World of Xianxia developers, while on a year-over-year basis, R&D expenses remained nearly flat. Although total cash compensation for our R&D developers increased year-over-year due to the increase in staff headcount and salary raises, such increase was nearly offset by the decrease in share-based compensation expenses, which are associated with the restricted shares granted in November 2011. Due to the Company's accelerated accounting policy in amortizing share-based compensation expenses, these expenses generally decline from period to period.

S&M expenses for the second quarter 2013 were RMB54.0 million (US$8.8 million), representing a 77.9% increase from RMB30.3 million in the first quarter 2013, and a 13.2% increase from RMB47.7 million in the second quarter 2012. As a percentage of revenue, S&M expenses were 9.2% in the second quarter 2013, compared to 5.3% in the first quarter 2013 and 9.0% in the second quarter 2012. The sequential and year-over-year increases in S&M expenses were mainly due to increased marketing efforts related to the official closed beta testing of World of Xianxia.     

G&A expenses for the second quarter 2013 were RMB34.6 million (US$5.6 million), representing a 9.4% increase from RMB31.6 million in the first quarter 2013, and a 9.4% decrease from RMB38.2 million in the second quarter 2012. As a percentage of revenue, G&A expenses were 5.9% in the second quarter 2013, compared to 5.5% in the first quarter 2013 and 7.2% in the second quarter 2012. The sequential increase in G&A was mainly attributable to higher professional service fees related to the Company's year-end filing of its annual report with SEC, and the year-over-year decrease in G&A expenses was mainly due to the decrease in share-based compensation expenses for the same reason stated above under R&D expenses.

Government Financial Incentives.  Government financial incentives, which are calculated with reference to business tax, value-added tax, and enterprise income tax paid, was RMB10.0 million (US$1.6 million) in the second quarter 2013. The Company records such government financial incentive as a reduction in operating expenses. 

Interest Income.  Interest income for the second quarter 2013 was RMB45.6 million (US$7.4 million), representing a 82.6% increase from RMB25.0 million in the first quarter 2013, and a 77.8% increase from RMB25.6 million in the second quarter 2012. The sequential increase was mainly due to the accrued interest income associated with a held-to-maturity investment which was terminated at the end of the second quarter 2013 prior to its maturity, while the year-over-year increase was primarily due to the accrued interest income related to the same held-to-maturity investment as well as higher interest income resulted from the Company's growing cash balance.

Income Tax.  Income tax expense for the second quarter 2013 was RMB10.4 million (US$1.7 million), compared to income tax expense of RMB48.0 million in the first quarter 2013 and RMB36.3 million in the second quarter 2012. The sequential and year-over-year decreases were primarily due to the tax adjustment pertaining to 2012 as a result of the reduction in corporate income tax rate from 15% to 10% for one of our PRC subsidiaries, which was approved by the tax authority and such tax refund was received in the second quarter 2013.        

Net Income Attributable to the Company's Shareholders.  Net income attributable to the Company's shareholders for the second quarter 2013 was RMB367.6 million (US$59.9 million), representing a 12.7% increase from RMB326.0 million in the first quarter 2013, and a 19.6% increase from RMB307.2 million in the second quarter 2012.  The sequential and year-over-year increases in net income attributable to the Company's shareholders were primarily due to the Company's general business growth, higher interest income, and lower income tax expense recorded in the second quarter 2013. The margin of net income attributable to the Company's shareholders for the second quarter 2013 was 62.5%, compared to 56.9% in the previous quarter and 58.2% in the second quarter 2012.

Non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company's shareholders for the second quarter 2013 was RMB383.5 million (US$62.5 million) representing an 11.9% increase from RMB342.7 million in the first quarter 2013, and a 13.0% increase from RMB339.4 million in the second quarter 2012. The margin of non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company's shareholders was 65.2%, compared to 59.8% in the previous quarter and 64.3% in the second quarter of 2012. Please refer to the "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" section commencing on page 7 for a reconciliation between net income attributable to the Company's shareholders on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis.

Cash and Cash Equivalents and Short-Term Investments.  As of June 30, 2013, the Company's cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled RMB3,337.7 million (US$543.8 million), compared to approximately RMB3,005.5 million as of March 31, 2013.  The sequential increase was primarily due to the growth of the Company's game operations.

Cash Dividend.  The Company announced its semi-annual cash dividend for the first half of 2013 in the amount of US$0.23 per ADS or ordinary share on its outstanding shares, which will be payable to shareholders of record at the close of trading in New York on December 12, 2013. The total cash payment associated with this dividend will be approximately US$55.1 million. The payment amounts and dates are subject to, among other things, approval by the Company's board of directors and compliance with applicable laws.
