Operating Highlights for the Second Fiscal Quarter Ended November 30, 2015

  • Total student enrollments in academic subjects tutoring and test preparation courses increased by 35.3% year-over-year to approximately 841,000 for the second fiscal quarter of 2016.
  • The total number of schools and learning centers was 720 as of November 30, 2015, an increase of 7 compared to 713 as of November 30, 2014, and a decrease of 1 compared to 721 as of August 31, 2015. The total number of schools was 63 as of November 30, 2015.

Michael Yu, New Oriental's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased to see continued momentum in our overall business in the second quarter, with a 17.7% revenue growth, exceeding the high end of our expectation. It is also encouraging to see a strong deferred revenue balance of US$586.5 million at the end of the second quarter, up over 33% year-over-year. The key driver of this was our total student enrollments, which were up by 35% in the quarter. Supported by the proactive roll out of the new POP Kids program and U-Can Visible Progress Teaching system, our K-12 all-subjects after-school tutoring business achieved more than 33% year-over-year gross revenue growth. In particular, our U-Can middle and high school all-subjects after-school tutoring business grew over 35% year-over-year, and the POP Kids program grew approximately 30% year-over-year, continuing to build on the excellent performance since its launch in September 2014."

Mr. Yu continued, "As we continued to move forward with our "Optimize the Market" strategy, we opened one new school in Weifang, an emerging and populous city in eastern China. On the other hand, we closed a net of two learning centers and expanded some existing ones,  adding a total of approximately 14,000 square meters of classroom area. In the approaching winter and spring quarters, we will continue to improve the utilization rate of facilities at our existing schools and learning centers and add some capacity targeting those cities with promising growth potential, so as to meet the seasonally higher market demand for our K-12 business. Furthermore, our investment in O2O Two-way Interactive Education System in our key business lines has started to bear fruits. The new O2O education system for our K-12 after-school tutoring business contributed to our revenue growth by improving customer retention rate and bringing in new customers. With these encouraging results, we will continue to invest in building out our O2O education system for overseas and domestic test preparation businesses for the rest of the year.  Also, our pure online education platform, Koolearn.com, recorded revenue growth of over 19% year-over-year in the second quarter, with registered users up by over 192% and paid users up by over 215%.

Stephen Zhihui Yang, New Oriental's Chief Financial Officer, commented, "While we continued to invest heavily in our O2O integrated education ecosystem, we managed to improve our margin and cost efficiencies during the quarter, as evidenced by the increase in the operating margin. Looking into the second half of 2016, we will maintain our focus on cost control and improving operational efficiency. We will also continue to expand the reach of our advanced products and services across all of our business lines in China. By doing so we will be able to deliver sustainable long-term growth for our shareholders."

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement New Oriental's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with 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 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.
