Operating Highlights for the Fourth Fiscal Quarter Ended May 31, 2016

  • Total student enrollments in tutoring and test preparation courses for academic subjects increased by 32.5% year-over-year to approximately 1,037,700 for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2016.
  • The total number of schools and learning centers was 748 as of May 31, 2016, an increase of 24 compared to 724 as of May 31, 2015, and an increase of 21 compared to 727 as of February 29, 2016. The total number of schools was 66 as of May 31, 2016.

Michael Yu, New Oriental's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased to report excellent performance for fiscal 2016, with continued growth on both the top line and bottom line as well as a significant increase in operating income. For the full fiscal year, net revenues grew by 18.6%, with operating income up 29.5% and student enrollments up 25.8%. Fourth quarter net revenues increased by 20.1% and operating income grew 61.1%, driven largely by a 32.5% increase in student enrollments. If not including the impact from the depreciation of Renminbi against the U.S. Dollar, net revenue growth rate would be 22.6% for the full fiscal year and 25.7% for the fourth quarter. Our key revenue driver, K-12 after-school tutoring business, achieved approximately 32% gross revenue growth and an over 39% enrollment growth in fiscal 2016 as compared to that in fiscal 2015. In particular, our revamped POP Kids program and U-Can Visible Progress Teaching system have been successfully rolled out across all 55 existing cities in our nationwide school network and this expansion drove positive performance. Our POP Kids program achieved gross revenue growth of more than 35% and enrollment growth of approximately 46% for the fiscal year 2016. Meanwhile, our U-Can business recorded gross revenue growth of more than 30% and enrollment growth of approximately 35% for the fiscal year."

Mr. Yu continued, "Our very strong results for fiscal 2016 are essentially a positive manifestation of our ongoing "Optimize the Market" strategy and proof that our strategic growth initiatives are working. With this strategy guiding us, we have maintained a healthy balance between top line and bottom line growth while investing in building out our online and offline (O2O) integrated education ecosystem. For fiscal 2016, we opened 6 new schools in new cities and added a net of 18 learning centers in the existing cities, adding a total of approximately 71,000 square meters of classroom area which represents about 7% capacity expansion. In the fourth fiscal quarter, we opened two new schools in the cities of Yangzhou and Jinzhou. Furthermore, our investments in building our O2O integrated education ecosystem began to bear fruit. The O2O system for the K-12 business is the driving force behind the robust revenue growth as it significantly improves customer retention rate and acquisition efficiency. We also launched the O2O system for our overseas test preparation business, such as IELTS, TOEFL and SAT programs, in some of the large cities in China. Lastly, our pure online education platform, Koolearn.com, recorded revenue growth of approximately 29% for the whole fiscal year, with registered users up by over 77% and paid users almost doubling. In short, the evolution of our integrated education ecosystem is progressing well. It is helping us gain market share, enhance brand recognition, and make significant improvements in performance."

Stephen Zhihui Yang, New Oriental's Chief Financial Officer, commented, "It is particularly encouraging to see the consistent margin expansion that occurred during fiscal year 2016. Despite our heavy investment in building and rolling out our O2O integrated education ecosystem, full year gross margin increased by 60 basis points to 58.4% and operating margin increased by 110 basis points to 13.4%. We are encouraged by the strong momentum we have as we move into fiscal 2017 and we will continue to maintain and refine our existing strategies to boost both business growth and operational efficiency. With our constant efforts to drive profitable revenue, control cost and drive utilization improvement, we are confident that we will continue to even further improve performance and continue to build enhanced value for our shareholders."

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement New Oriental's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, New Oriental uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC: net income excluding share-based compensation expenses, operating income excluding share-based compensation expenses, operating costs and expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, general and administrative expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, operating margin excluding share-based compensation expenses, and basic and diluted net income per ADS and per share excluding share-based compensation expenses. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this release.

New Oriental believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding share-based compensation expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. New Oriental believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing its performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to New Oriental's historical performance and liquidity. New Oriental computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter. New Oriental believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision making. A limitation of using these non-GAAP measures is that they exclude share-based compensation charge that has been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in our business. Management compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying tables have more details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.
