Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

For the second quarter of 2014, SINA reported net revenues of $187.0 million, compared to $157.5 million for the same period last year.  Non-GAAP net revenues for the second quarter of 2014 totaled $184.4 million, compared to $152.8 million for the same period last year.  Online advertising revenues for the second quarter of 2014 were $155.8 million, compared to $120.6 million for the same period last year.  Non-advertising revenues for the second quarter of 2014 were $31.2 million, compared to $36.9 million for the same period last year.  Non-GAAP non-advertising revenues for the second quarter of 2014 were $28.6 million, compared to $32.2 million for the same period last year.  The year over year decline in non-advertising revenues was mainly due to a decrease of $13.6 million in mobile value added services ("MVAS") revenues, partially offset by the $10.0 million increase in Weibo Value Added Services ("VAS") revenues.

Gross margin for the second quarter of 2014 was 61%, compared to 54% for the same period last year.  Advertising gross margin for the second quarter of 2014 was 59%, compared to 53% for the same period last year.  Non-GAAP advertising gross margin for the second quarter of 2014 was 60%, compared to 57% for the same period last year, as the proportion of advertising from higher margin Weibo advertising increased from the same period last year, partially offset by the purchase of World Cup related content in the second quarter.  Non-advertising revenues gross margin for the second quarter of 2014 increased to 67% from 55% for the same period last year.  Non-GAAP non-advertising revenues gross margin for the second quarter of 2014 increased to 64% from 49% for the same period last year, primarily due to a shift in revenue mix from low-margin MVAS to higher margin Weibo VAS.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2014 totaled $138.6 million, which included a goodwill impairment of $14.5 million related to online reading business, compared to $102.5 million for the same period last year.  Non-GAAP operating expenses for the second quarter of 2014 totaled $116.9 million, compared to $75.4 million for the same period last year, primarily due to higher labor-related costs, marketing expenditures and infrastructure spending.

Loss from operations for the second quarter of 2014 was $25.2 million, compared to $18.2 million for the same period last year.  Non-GAAP loss from operations for the second quarter of 2014 was $5.4 million, compared to a non-GAAP income from operations of $8.8 million for the same period last year. 

Non-operating income for the second quarter of 2014 was $31.2 million, compared to $8.2 million for the same period last year.  Non-operating income for the second quarter included:  1) a gain of $29.1 million from Tencent's acquisition of a 15% equity interest in Leju, a subsidiary of E-House, on a fully diluted basis from E-House; 2) a $6.8 million loss from the change in fair value of investor option liability in connection with Alibaba's investment in Weibo; and 3) $2.9 million, or $5.2 million on a non-GAAP basis, in earnings from equity-method investments, which are accounted for under the equity-method and reported one quarter in arrears.  Non-operating income for the second quarter of 2013 included a $1.3 million, or $4.2 million on a non-GAAP basis, in earnings from equity-method investments and a $0.9 million gain from the change in fair value of investor option liability.

Net income attributable to SINA for the second quarter of 2014 was $16.6 million, compared to a net loss of $11.5 million for the same period last year.  Diluted net income per share attributable to SINA for the second quarter of 2014 was $0.25, compared to a diluted net loss per share of $0.17 for the same period last year.  Non-GAAP net income attributable to SINA for the second quarter of 2014 was $12.1 million, compared to $14.2 million for the same period last year.  Non-GAAP diluted net income per share attributable to SINA for the second quarter of 2014 was $0.17, compared to $0.21 for the same period last year.

As of June 30, 2014, SINA's cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled $2.3 billion, compared to $1.9 billion as of December 31, 2013.  The increase in cash, cash equivalents, and short term investments was mainly due to the cash received from Alibaba in connection with the option exercise of approximately $347 million and the net proceeds from Weibo's IPO of approximately $301 million in the second quarter of 2014, partially offset by investments and repurchases made during the first half of 2014.  For the second quarter of 2014, net cash used by operating activities was $9.0 million, capital expenditures totaled $17.5 million, and depreciation and amortization expenses amounted to $11.0 million.

Other Developments

On August 8, 2014, the Company held its annual general meeting of shareholders, where the shareholders re-elected Mr. Pehong Chen and Mr. Lip-Bu Tan as directors of SINA.  The shareholders also approved and ratified the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers Zhong Tian LLP as the Company's independent auditors for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2014.

As of August 13, 2014, the Company has purchased approximately 1.3 million shares in the open market for a total consideration of approximately $58 million under the $500 million share repurchase program approved by the Company's Board of Directors in April 2014.  The Company expects to continue to execute the repurchase program when appropriate.

Business Outlook

SINA estimates that its non-GAAP net revenues for the third quarter of 2014 will be between $193 million and $199 million, which excludes the recognition of $2.6 million in deferred license revenues from E-House.  The foregoing forecast reflects SINA's current and preliminary view, which is subject to change.  

Non-GAAP Measures

This release contains the following non-GAAP financial measures:  non-GAAP net revenues, non-GAAP non-advertising revenues, non-GAAP advertising and non-advertising gross margin, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to SINA and non-GAAP diluted net income (loss) per share attributable to SINA.  These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, measures of the Company's financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  The Company's non-GAAP financial measures may be defined differently than similar terms used by other companies.  Accordingly, care should be exercised in understanding how the Company defines its non-GAAP financial measures.  

The Company's non-GAAP financial measures exclude recognition of deferred revenues in relation to the equity investment in E-House, stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets net of tax, adjustment for GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items on the share of equity method investments, gain (loss) on the sale, deemed disposal and impairment on business, investment and non-controlling interest in a subsidiary, change in fair value of investor option liability, adjustment for GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items for the gain (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests, convertible debt issuance cost and impairment of goodwill.  The Company's management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in their financial and operating decision-making, because management believes these measures reflect the Company's ongoing business operations in a manner that allows more meaningful period-to-period comparisons.  The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others in the following ways: (i) in comparing the Company's current financial results with the Company's past financial results in a consistent manner, and (ii) in understanding and evaluating the Company's current operating performance and future prospects in the same manner as management does, if they so choose.  The Company also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains/losses and other items (i) that are not expected to result in future cash payments or (ii) that are non-recurring in nature or may not be indicative of the Company's core operating results and business outlook.

Use of non-GAAP financial measures has limitations. The Company's non-GAAP financial measures do not include all income and expense items that affect the Company's operations.   They may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Management compensates for these limitations by also considering the Company's financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Reconciliations of the Company's non-GAAP measures to the nearest GAAP measures are set forth in the section below titled "Unaudited Reconciliation of Non-GAAP to GAAP Results."
