Second Quarter Financial Results

Revenues

Total revenues for the second quarter of 2013 were US$339 million, up 33% year-over-year and 10% quarter-over-quarter.

Total online advertising revenues, which include revenues from brand advertising and search and others businesses for the second quarter of  2013, were US$146 million, up 49% year-over-year and 26% quarter-over-quarter.

Brand advertising revenues for the second quarter of 2013 totaled US$100 million, up 45% year-over-year and 25% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases were mainly due to increased brand advertising revenues from real estate and fast-moving consumer goods sectors.

Search and others revenues for the second quarter of 2013 were US$46 million, up 61% year-over-year and 28% quarter-over-quarter. This was primarily due to the continued growth of Sogou's search and web directory businesses, driven by increased traffic and improved pricing.

Online game revenues for the second quarter of 2013 were US$168 million, up 24% year-over-year and 1% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to the growth momentum of TLBB and Wartune in the second quarter of 2013. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly due to the growth momentum of TLBB and revenues from the newly launched MMO game, Dou Po Cang Qiong, in the second quarter of 2013.

Wireless revenues for the second quarter of 2013 were US$15 million, down 2% year-over-year and up 11% quarter-over-quarter.

Gross Margin

Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin was 66% for the second quarter of 2013, compared with 66% in the first quarter of 2013 and  61% in the second quarter of 2012.

Online advertising gross margin for the second quarter of 2013 was 48%, compared with 44% in the first quarter of 2013 and 32% in the second quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP online advertising gross margin for the second quarter of 2013 was 48%, compared with 44% in the first quarter of 2013 and 31% in the second quarter of 2012.

Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin for brand advertising business in the second quarter of 2013 were 49%, compared with 44% in the first quarter of 2013 and 26% in the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year increase in gross margin was due to approximately $15 million impairment charges of video content we recognized in the second quarter of 2012. The quarter-over-quarter increase in gross margin was due to a relatively slower growth rate of the brand advertising  cost compared with the rapid growth in revenue.

Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin for search and others business in the second quarter of 2013 were 47%, compared with 42% in the first quarter of 2013 and 44% in the second quarter of 2012.

Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin for online games in the second quarter of 2013 were 86%, compared with 86% in the first quarter of 2013 and 87% in the second quarter of  2012.

Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin for the wireless business for the second quarter of 2013 were 41%, compared with 33% in the first quarter of 2013 and 35% in the second quarter of 2012.

Operating Expenses

For the second quarter of 2013, operating expenses totaled US$161 million, up 43% year-over-year and 21% quarter-over-quarter. Non-GAAP operating expenses were US$160 million, up 50% year-over-year and 21% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases were primarily due to an increase in the number of employees, average compensation and higher expenses associated with marketing and promotion activities.

Operating Profit

Operating profit for the second quarter of 2013 was US$64 million, up 49% year-over-year and down 9% quarter-over-quarter. Operating margin was 19% for the second quarter of 2013, compared with 23% in the previous quarter and 17% in the second quarter of 2012.

Non-GAAP operating profit for the second quarter of 2013 was US$66 million, up 33% year-over-year and down 9% quarter-over-quarter. Non-GAAP operating margin was 19% for the second quarter of 2013, compared with 23% in the previous quarter and 19% in the second quarter of 2012.

Income Tax Expense

For the second quarter of 2013, both GAAP and non-GAAP income tax expenses were US$16 million.

Net Income

Before deducting the share of net income pertaining to the Non-controlling Interest, GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2013 was US$53 million, up 58% year-over-year and down 8% quarter-over-quarter. Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2013 was US$54 million, up 33% year-over-year and  down 8% quarter-over-quarter.

Cash Balance

As of June 30, 2013, Sohu Group had cash and cash equivalents of US$771 million, compared with US$834 million as of  December 31, 2012.

Ms. Carol Yu, Co-President and CFO of Sohu.com Inc. commented, "In the first half of 2013, we invested intensively in some key initiatives for video, search, games and mobile. I am delighted that these investments help further strengthened our competitiveness in China's internet market.  I am confident the momentum will continue into the remaining months in 2013 and beyond."

Other developments

On June 5, 2013, Changyou completed the acquisition of all of the ordinary shares of its majority-owned Web games subsidiary 7Road.com Limited ("7Road") held by the non-controlling shareholders, representing 28.074% of the outstanding share capital of 7Road.

On July 27, 2013, Changyou's Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program of up to US$100 million of the outstanding American depositary shares, or ADSs, of Changyou over a two-year period from July 27, 2013 to July 26, 2015. The ADSs may be purchased from time to time at management's discretion at prevailing market prices in the open market in accordance with Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Changyou's management will determine the timing and amount of any purchases of Changyou ADSs based on their evaluation of market conditions, the trading price of Changyou's ADSs and other factors. The purchase program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.

Business Outlook

For the third quarter of 2013, Sohu estimates:

  • Total revenues to be between US$358 million and US$370 million.
  • Brand advertising revenues to be between $120 million and $125 million; this implies a sequential increase of 20% to 25% and an annual increase of 54% to 61%.
  • Sogou revenues to be between $54 million and $56 million; this implies a sequential increase of 8% to 12% and an annual growth of 45% to 50%.
  • Online game revenues to be between US$161 million and US$166 million.
  • Before deducting the share of non-GAAP net income pertaining to the Non-Controlling interest, non-GAAP net income to be between US$43 million and US$46 million.
  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to Sohu.com Inc. to be between US$19 million and US$21 million, and non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per share to be between US$0.50 and US$0.55.
  • Assuming no new grants of share-based awards, we estimate that compensation expenses relating to share-based awards to be around US$3 million to US$4 million. The estimated impact of this expense is expected to reduce Sohu's fully diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of 2013 under US GAAP by 7 to 9 US cents.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2011, Sohu revised its non-GAAP reporting methodology to exclude income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, in addition to its historical practice of excluding share-based awards from non-GAAP results.

To supplement the unaudited consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), Sohu's management uses non-GAAP measures of gross profit, operating profit, income tax expense, net income attributable to Sohu.com.Inc. and net income attributable to Sohu.com.Inc.  per share, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude the impact of share-based awards, which consist mainly of share-based compensation expenses and non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions and goodwill impairment and impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impacts. These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results.

Sohu's management believes excluding the impact of share-based awards, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact from its non-GAAP financial measure is useful for itself and investors. Further, the impact of share-based awards, utilization of non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact cannot be anticipated by management and business line leaders and these expenses were not built into the annual budgets and quarterly forecasts, which have been the basis for information Sohu provides to analysts and investors as guidance for future operating performance. As the impact of share-based awards, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact does not involve subsequent cash outflow, Sohu does not factor this in when evaluating and approving expenditures or when determining the allocation of its resources to its business segments. As a result, in general, the monthly financial results for internal reporting and any performance measure for commissions and bonuses are based on non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the impact of share-based awards, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards,income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact.

The non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of Sohu's current financial performance and prospects for the future. A limitation of using non-GAAP gross profit, operating profit, income tax expense, net income attributable to Sohu.com Inc. and net income attributable to Sohu.com Inc. per share, excluding the impact of share-based awards, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact is that the impact of share-based awards and non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards have been and will continue to be a significant recurring expense in Sohu's business for the foreseeable future, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact may recur in the future. In order to mitigate these limitations Sohu has provided specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying tables include details on the reconciliation between the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to the non-GAAP financial measures that have been presented.

Notes to Financial Information          

Financial information in this press release other than the information indicated as being non-GAAP is derived from Sohu's unaudited interim financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Mezzanine equity consists of non-controlling interests in 7Road and a put option that gives the non-controlling shareholders the right to put their shares to Changyou at a pre-determined price if 7Road achieves specified performance milestones before the expiry of the put option and 7Road does not complete an initial public offering on NASDAQ, the New York Stock Exchange or The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong. The put option will expire in 2014. Non-controlling interests of 7Road and the put option are classified as mezzanine equity in Changyou's consolidated balance sheets, as redemption of the non-controlling interests is not solely within the control of Changyou.

In accordance with ASC subtopic 480-10, Changyou accretes the balance of non-controlling interests to its redemption value over the period from the date of the 7Road acquisition to the earliest exercise date of the put right. Any subsequent changes in the redemption value are considered to be changes in accounting estimates and are also recognized over the same period as net income attributable to mezzanine classified non-controlling interests.

On May 1, 2013, Changyou entered into an agreement to acquire all of the ordinary shares of 7Road held by the non-controlling shareholders. The acquisition was completed on June 5, 2013. Under ASC 810-10, changes in a parent's ownership interest while the parent retains control of its subsidiary are accounted for as equity transactions, and do not impact net income or comprehensive income in the consolidated financial statements. Following the closing of the acquisition, US$2.4 million, representing the excess of the amount of the mezzanine-classified non-controlling interests in 7Road over the purchase price as of the closing date, was recorded in the Company's equity accounts.
