Ms. Wei Liu, Giant's Chief Executive Officer commented, "2013 has been a year of major strategic expansion for Giant. For MMOs, we launched World of Xianxia and the game has become a new success in addition to our ZT Online franchise. Our webgames were recently released to the market. Earlier this year, we formed new mobile game development teams and expect to launch two mobile games in the near future. While this strategic expansion has been underway during the last three quarters, our core business and financial results remained solid, marking 2013 a major turning point in expanding and diversifying our product road map. We are pleased to report another solid quarter and a strong market position, at a time when our strategic imperatives are underway and new initiatives are beginning to bear fruit. We have made great strides to grow our core business, diversify our game portfolio, and expand into new areas of higher growth, while preserving our industry-leading profitability."

"During the past quarter, we continued to update our best-in-class MMOs. The open beta testing of World of Xianxia has received positive user feedback, establishing the game as a successful new franchise and demonstrating our ability to develop hit games outside of our ZT Online series."

"We have begun rolling out a new wave of webgames, Supreme Tai-Chi and Genesis of the Empire. We began testing with some of our webgame platform partners and the initial results have exceeded our expectations. We expect these webgames to grow as we launch them on multiple platforms going forward, proving that Giant's innovative game design is not only applicable to client-based MMOs, but also to webgames. The webgame market in China remains on a steady growth track. We are confident that our upcoming elite webgames will enable Giant to gain meaningful market share."

"In mobile games, our game expansion and development are progressing impressively. We believe elite games will eventually dominate the Chinese mobile game market, giving an advantage to companies with strong R&D capabilities such as ourselves. Our confidence is based on years of game development experience, understanding of Chinese gamers, and expertise in publishing and marketing games. Our current mobile game pipeline consists of Kung Fu BBQ and ZT Online Mobile, among other projects. Kung Fu BBQ is slated to begin testing in the fourth quarter, while ZT Online Mobile will begin testing in the first quarter 2014. Our long-term game roadmap is robust, formulated to cement Giant as the leading developer and publisher of high quality games regardless of whether they are client-based games, webgames or mobile games."

"Giant is today the premier content provider in the online game market in China. Looking ahead into 2014, we have a robust MMO pipeline, webgames will begin contributing to our top line, and we will launch several mobile games. We will continue our collaboration with third-party platforms while exploring newer and more cost effective distribution channels. We will achieve these goals while maintaining our industry-leading profitability driven by prudent spending and continuously improving efficiency. In the mid-to-long-term, with the support of strong teams of developers led by our industry-known chief producers, and a diversified portfolio in the pipeline, we view our market position and financial outlook as brighter than ever. We will strive to keep up the growth momentum and seize the opportunities that will come to fruition."

Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Unaudited Financial Results 

Net Revenue.  Net revenue for the third quarter 2013 was RMB590.0 million (US$96.4 million), representing a 0.3% increase from RMB588.1 million in the second quarter 2013, and a 8.6% increase from RMB543.2 million in the third quarter 2012.

Revenue from online games in the third quarter 2013 totaled RMB581.8 million (US$95.1 million), representing a 0.6% increase from RMB578.4 million in the second quarter 2013, and an 11.1% increase from RMB523.8 million in the third quarter 2012. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to the launch of World of Xianxia in 2013.

APA for online games in the third quarter 2013 was to 2,335,000, representing a 0.3% sequential increase and a 4.2% increase over the third quarter 2012. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to the launch of World of Xianxia and the expansion packs for ZT Online in 2013. ARPU for online games in the third quarter 2013 was RMB245, representing a 0.5% sequential increase and a 2.9% increase over the third quarter 2012. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to the addition of World of Xianxia and the increase in spending by ZT Online 2 gamers. ACU for online games in the third quarter 2013 was 697,000, representing a 0.8% sequential decrease and a 0.4% increase over the third quarter 2012. PCU for online games in the third quarter 2013 was 2,271,000, representing a 2.0% sequential decrease and a 2.5% decrease over the third quarter 2012. The sequential decrease in ACU, and the sequential and year-over-year decreases in PCU were mainly due to further fragmentation of playing time in MMO games. The year-over-year increase in ACU was mainly due to the launch of World of Xianxia.    

Cost of Services.  Cost of services for the third quarter 2013 was RMB77.5 million (US$12.7 million), representing an 8.9% increase from the second quarter 2013 and a 3.1% increase from the third quarter 2012. The sequential increase in cost of services was mainly due to the higher costs accrued for the Company's licensed games, while the year-over-year increase was mainly due to the overall growth of the Company's business operations and higher costs associated with the Company's licensed games.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin. Gross profit for the third quarter 2013 was RMB512.5 million (US$83.7 million), representing a 0.9% decrease from the second quarter 2013 and a 9.5% increase from the third quarter 2012. Gross margin for the third quarter 2013 was 86.9%, down from 87.9% in the second quarter 2013, and remained flat compared with the third quarter 2012. 

Operating Expenses. Total operating expenses for the third quarter 2013 were RMB164.0 million (US$26.8 million), representing a 2.9% increase from RMB159.4 million in the second quarter 2013 and a 15.7% increase from RMB141.7 million in the third quarter 2012. As a percentage of revenue, total operating expenses were 27.8% for the third quarter 2013, compared to 27.1% in the second quarter 2013 and 26.1% in the third quarter 2012. The sequential and year-over-year increases in operating expenses were mainly attributable to the increases in sales and marketing ("S&M") expenses.

Research and product development ("R&D") expenses for the third quarter 2013 were RMB75.0 million (US$12.3 million), representing a 7.1% decrease from RMB80.8 million in the second quarter 2013 and a 1.3% decrease from RMB76.1 million in the third quarter 2012. As a percentage of revenue, R&D expenses were 12.7% for the third quarter 2013, compared to 13.7% in the second quarter 2013 and 14.0% in the third quarter 2012. The sequential decrease in R&D expenses was mainly attributable to the higher bonuses accrued in the second quarter as compared to the third quarter. 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 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 third quarter 2013 were RMB62.9 million (US$10.3 million), representing a 16.5% increase from RMB54.0 million in the second quarter 2013, and a 68.2% increase from RMB37.4 million in the third quarter 2012. As a percentage of revenue, S&M expenses were 10.7% in the third quarter 2013, compared to 9.2% in the second quarter 2013 and 6.9% in the third quarter 2012. The sequential increase in S&M expenses was mainly due to marketing expenses incurred to promote the expansion packs for ZT Online 1 and ZT Online 2 during the third quarter 2013. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to the marketing campaigns for the open beta testing for World of Xianxia, as well as for the expansion packs for ZT Online 1 and ZT Online 2 during the third quarter 2013, while in the same quarter a year ago, marketing expenses for World of Xianxia was insignificant, and marketing expenses for ZT Online 1 and ZT Online 2 were lower.

G&A for the third quarter 2013 were RMB35.6 million (US$5.8 million), representing a 2.9% increase from RMB34.6 million in the second quarter 2013, and a 7.0% decrease from RMB38.3 million in the third quarter 2012. As a percentage of revenue, G&A expenses were 6.0% in the third quarter 2013, compared to 5.9% in the second quarter 2013 and 7.0% in the third quarter 2012. The sequential increase was mainly attributable to certain employee benefits, and the year-over-year decrease was primarily due to 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.

Government Financial Incentives.  The government financial incentives, which mainly relate to the refund of business tax, value-added tax, and enterprise income tax from the Shanghai municipal government, were RMB9.6 million (US$1.6 million) in the third quarter 2013. The Company records these government financial incentives as a reduction in operating expenses. 

Interest Income. Interest income for the third quarter 2013 was RMB19.4 million (US$3.2 million), representing a 57.5% decrease from RMB45.6 million in the second quarter 2013, and a 37.9% decrease from RMB31.3 million in the third quarter 2012. The sequential and year-over-year decreases in interest income were mainly due to the early termination of a held-to-maturity investment and the associated interest of RMB22.8 million accrued as of the date of the settlement was recorded in the second quarter 2013.

Income Tax. Income tax expense for the third quarter 2013 was RMB0.5 million (US$0.1 million), compared to income tax expense of RMB10.4 million in the second quarter 2013 and income tax expense of RMB30.9 million in the third quarter 2012. Income tax expense decreased sequentially and on a year-over-year basis mainly due to the tax adjustment pertaining to 2011 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 is expected to be received in the fourth quarter 2013.

Net Income Attributable to the Company's Shareholders.  Net income attributable to the Company's shareholders for the third quarter 2013 was RMB355.8 million (US$58.1 million), representing a 3.2% decrease from RMB367.6 million in the second quarter 2013, and a 14.1% increase from RMB311.7 million in the third quarter 2012. The sequential decrease was primarily due to the Company's higher operating expenses, lower interest income, offset by lower income tax expenses in the third quarter as compared to the second quarter 2013. The year-over-year increase in net income attributable to the Company's shareholders was mainly due to the Company's general business growth and lower income tax expense recorded in the third quarter 2013. The margin of net income attributable to the Company's shareholders was 60.3% for the third quarter 2013, compared to 62.5% in the second quarter 2013 and 57.4% in the third quarter 2012.  

Non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company's shareholders for the third quarter 2013 was RMB372.5 million (US$60.9 million) representing a 2.9% decrease from RMB383.5 million in the second quarter 2013, and a 8.8% increase from RMB342.5 million in the third quarter 2012. The margin of non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company's shareholders was 63.1%, compared to 65.2% in the previous quarter and 63.0% in the third 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, Restricted cash and Short-Term Investments.  As of September 30, 2013, the Company's cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investments totaled RMB3,734.8 million (US$610.3 million), compared to RMB3,337.7 million as of June 30, 2013. The sequential increase was primarily due to significant free cash flow generation and the growth of the Company's game operations.
