Gross profit margin for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was 46.4%, compared to 45.5% in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The increase in margin was mainly due to revenue expansion and effective cost management in the midst of a wage inflation environment.

Operating expenses

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was RMB32.4 million (US$5.3 million) as compared to RMB24.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.

As a percentage of net revenue, G&A expenses decreased to 34.7% in the second quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to 36.1% in the same period of fiscal 2013. The lower percentage of G&A expenses to net revenue primarily reflected the improvement of the Company's operational leverage with the expansion of revenue scale.

Other operating income for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 increased 42.8% year-over-year to RMB8.1 million (US$1.3 million) from RMB5.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The increase was primarily due to the increase of income from training camps and interest groups.

Deferred revenue primarily includes the tuition fees and franchising fees collected but has not yet recognized during the quarter. It will be recognized according to course and contract schedule. September is the beginning of school terms; therefore there is usually a higher deferred revenue balance at the end of last quarter.

Operational Updates

Noah also operates ten directly-owned supplemental training centers.

Student enrollment totaled over 22,000, reflecting a year-over-year increase of about 9% due to the expansion of the network. Categorized according to business service, more than 12,700 students are enrolled in kindergartens, while approximately 6,000 are accounted for in primary and secondary schools, and the remaining 3,300 are in directly owned supplemental training centers.

Noah is also planning to roll out two to three new kindergartens in the third quarter of fiscal 2014. These new kindergartens will be located in Guangdong and Zhejiang provinces.

Financial Outlook for the Third Quarter and Full Fiscal 2014

Based on current estimates and market conditions, for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, Noah expects to generate net revenue in the range of RMB54 million (US$8.9 million) to RMB57 million (US$9.4 million). For the full fiscal 2014, the Company expects to generate revenue between RMB237 million (US$39.1 million) and RMB251 million (US$41.5 million). This forecast reflects Noah's current and preliminary view, which is subject to change.
