THIRD QUARTER 2015 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the third quarter of 2015 were US$82.6 million, a 31.4% increase from the corresponding period in 2014, primarily due to increases in one-time commission revenues, recurring service fees and performance-based income.

  • Wealth Management Business
    • Net revenues from one-time commissions for the third quarter of 2015 were US$27.8 million, a 10.9% increase from the corresponding period in 2014, primarily due to an increase in the aggregate value of the wealth management products distributed by the Company.
    • Net revenues from recurring service fees for the third quarter of 2015 were US$24.8 million, a 8.3% increase from the corresponding period in 2014, mainly due to the cumulative effect of finance products previously distributed by the Company with chargeable recurring service fees, which was partially offset by the impact of lower recurring service fee rates due to a change in product mix.
    • Net revenues from performance-based income for the third quarter of 2015 were US$5.4 million, primarily consisting of performance-based income received for the positive performance of the secondary equity market fund products distributed by the Company.
    • Net revenues from other service fees for the third quarter of 2015 were US$1.3 million, compared with US$0.2 million in the corresponding period of 2014.
  • Asset Management Business
    • Net revenues from recurring service fees for the third quarter of 2015 were US$16.2 million, a 35.8% increase from the corresponding period in 2014, primarily due to the increase in assets under management by the Company, partially offset by the impact of lower management fee rates due to a change in composition of asset types under management.
    • Net revenues from performance-based income for the third quarter of 2015 were US$4.2 million, a 119.7% increase compared with the corresponding period in 2014, primarily consisting of performance-based income received for the positive performance of secondary equity market funds managed by the Company.
  • Internet Finance Business

Other compensation for the third quarter of 2015 increased by 56.2% from the corresponding period in 2014, primarily due to increases in both the number of back-office employees and share-based compensation.
    • Selling expenses for the third quarter of 2015 were US$9.8 million, a 76.8% increase from the corresponding period in 2014, primarily due to increased general marketing expenses resulting from an increase in the Company's marketing efforts, as well as increased employee activities and rental fees.

DISCUSSION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES:

In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company's earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the effects of all forms of share-based compensation. The reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest GAAP measures is set forth in the table captioned "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results" below.

The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The financial results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP and reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measure used by the Company may be prepared differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.

When evaluating the Company's operating performance in the periods presented, management reviewed non-GAAP net income results reflecting adjustments to exclude the impacts of share-based compensation to supplement U.S. GAAP financial data. As such, the Company believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP income per diluted ADS and non-GAAP net margin provides important supplemental information to investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations in a manner consistent with that used by management. Pursuant to U.S. GAAP, the Company recognized significant amounts of expenses for the restricted shares and share options in the periods presented. The Company utilized the non-GAAP financial results to make financial results comparable period to period and to better understand its historical business operations.
