"In 2011, NetQin Mobile set a number of new records in financial and operating metrics. Both our net revenues and registered user base reached record highs, more than doubling from the previous year. This success is driven by a number of factors including our relentless focus on product and technology innovation, as well as user experience. We also continued our expansion of industry partnerships and user acquisition channels. The rapid growth of global smartphone shipments and the proliferation of mobile Internet applications, as well as increasing consumer awareness and adoption of mobile security helped assure our success," continued Dr. Lin.

"While maintaining our dominant market share in China, we have also seen our internationalization strategy take off in 2011, with now almost half of our net revenues coming from overseas. This underscores the global demand for mobile security and privacy protection. With the recent joining of Omar Khan as our Co-CEO, we will continue to expand and grow our international business aggressively, signing up new industry partners and making key hires in overseas markets."

"We believe the growth of the smartphone and mobile Internet industry presents us with an unprecedented global market opportunity. 2012 is shaping up to be another exciting year for NetQin Mobile during which we will continue to expand our service offerings and extend our geographic outreach," said Khan. "With recently announced agreements with Motorola, Telefonica, 3LM and eSecuritel, we already had a great start in 2012 and I am also pleased to report that Cricket Communications, a leading provider of wireless services that serves six million customers in 35 states, has just selected NetQin as the preferred security solution provider for its Android devices. We remain confident that we will continue our growth momentum in 2012 and capitalize on these global opportunities."

Fourth Quarter 2011 Results

Revenues

Net revenues in the fourth quarter of 2011 were $12.8 million, an increase of 104.8% year-over-year from $6.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 and 13.1% sequentially from $11.3 million in the third quarter of 2011. The significant year-over-year and sequential increases in revenues were mainly due to the strong growth in revenues from premium mobile Internet services.

Net revenues from premium mobile Internet services increased 116.2% year-over-year and 12.1% sequentially to $11.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The increases were primarily due to the strong and steady growth in the number of paying user accounts, which reflected growth in the number of NetQin's registered and active user accounts, as well as increased use of its premium services, particularly among its overseas paying user accounts, which generally pay a higher subscription rate. Revenue contribution from overseas users accounted for 49.8% of total net revenues from premium mobile Internet services in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared with 40.4% in the fourth quarter of 2010 and 49.6% in the third quarter of 2011.

Net revenues from other services in the fourth quarter of 2011 were $1.2 million, representing an increase of 37.4% year-over-year and 23.4% sequentially. The year-over-year and sequential increases were primarily due to the growth in revenues from secured download and delivery services for mobile applications produced by third parties. Net revenues from other services as a percentage of total net revenue stood at 9.7% for the fourth quarter of 2011, compared with 14.4% in the fourth quarter of 2010 and 8.8% in the third quarter of 2011.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues in the fourth quarter of 2011 was $2.6 million, representing an increase of 29.1% year-over-year and 17.1% sequentially. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to higher staff costs from salary and headcount increases and higher revenue sharing with mobile payment service providers while the sequential increase was primarily due to increased customer acquisition costs.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2011 was $10.3 million, representing an increase of 139.9% year-over-year from $4.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 and 12.1% sequentially from $9.2 million in the third quarter of 2011. Gross margin, or gross profit as a percentage of net revenues, was 80.1% in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared with 68.4% in the fourth quarter of 2010 and 80.7% in the third quarter of 2011.

Selling and marketing expenses were $3.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, representing an increase of 128.7% year-over-year and 108.7% sequentially. The year-over-year and sequential increases were primarily due to higher marketing and advertising spending and higher share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses were $2.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared with $1.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 and $1.3 million in the third quarter of 2011. The 57.5% year-over-year increase was primarily due to higher marketing and advertising spending and increased travelling and entertainment expenses. The 78.3% sequential increase was primarily due to higher marketing and advertising spending, higher staff costs from salary and headcount increases, and higher travelling and entertainment expenses.

General and administrative expenses were $3.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, representing a decrease of 71.3% year-over-year and a decrease of 14.5% sequentially. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to lower share-based compensation expenses while the sequential decrease was primarily due to reversal of bad debt expenses upon settlements recovered from long outstanding receivables and lower office-related expenses partially offset by higher legal and professional fees. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses were $1.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared with $1.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 and $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2011. The 33.9% year-over-year increase was primarily due to higher legal and professional fees and higher staff costs from salary and headcount increases partially offset by lower bad debt expenses and lower office related expenses.

Research and development expenses were $1.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, representing an increase of 85.6% year-over-year and 33.0% sequentially. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to higher staff cost from salary and headcount increases and higher share-based compensation expenses.

Non-GAAP research and development expenses were $1.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared with $0.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 and $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2011. The 78.2% year-over-year and 42.1% sequential increases were primarily due to higher staff costs from salary and headcount increases.

Interest income was $0.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared with $0.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 and $0.5 million in the third quarter of 2011.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's financial results prepared in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), NetQin's management uses non-GAAP measures of cost of revenues, operating expenses, operating income and net income attributable to NetQin, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude the share-based compensation expenses.

The Company's non-GAAP financial information is provided as additional information to help the Company's investors compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis and to enhance investors' overall understanding of the historical and current financial performance of the Company's continuing operations and its prospects for the future. The Company's non-GAAP financial information 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. In addition, the Company's calculation of this non-GAAP financial information may be different from the calculation used by other companies, and therefore comparability may be limited.

The non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of NetQin's current financial performance and prospects for the future. A limitation of using non-GAAP cost of revenues, operating expenses, operating income and net income attributable to NetQin, excluding share-based compensation expenses, 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. 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.

Note 1: The net income / (loss) attributable to common shareholders reflected the impact of non-cash accounting charges relating to the preferred shares. All outstanding preferred shares were automatically converted into common shares upon the completion of the Company's IPO on May 5, 2011. Thereafter, there was no accretion and allocation of net income to the preferred shares and all net income was attributable to the common shareholders subsequent to IPO.

Note 2: The Company was listed in May 2011, the net income/ (loss) per ADS for the three months ended and for the year ended December 31, 2010 are calculated using the same conversion ratio assuming the ADS was existed during such periods. Each ADS represents five Class A common shares.
