"In the third quarter, each of our business units continued to grow rapidly. Total revenues grew by 69% year-over-year, and again exceeded the top end of our guidance, supported by very solid enrollment growth. The combined revenues from our offline businesses, consisting of our small class Xueersi Peiyou and Mobby lines and our Zhikang-branded 1-on-1 program, showed over 66% year-over-year revenue growth. Our online courses business grew at an even faster rate, and contributed 4% of revenues this quarter versus 2% during the third quarter of last year," said TAL's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Bangxin Zhang. "We are very happy to see this strong uptake in online courses sales accompany the heightened investment we have put behind our online platform this year. Over the coming quarters, we will focus on driving increased scalability in this business.

At the same time, we will continue to replicate our core small class business model in new cities. This expansion effort has been quite successful for us this year. In the third quarter, cities outside of Beijing and Shanghai contributed an historic high 17% of small class revenues versus only 6% in the same period of the previous year, and 11% last quarter," Mr. Zhang said.

Mr. Joseph Kauffman, Chief Financial Officer, continued, "The emphasis for our 1-on-1 business, on the other hand, will be on increasing profitability. In the quarter, we concentrated our efforts on improving 1-on-1 center utilization and keeping costs and expenses in check, while at the same time we successfully raised our hourly rate in Beijing. Given the seasonality trends for 1-on-1, profitability is typically lowest in the third fiscal quarter. We expect to see profitability recover from these levels as enrollments ramp up over the coming two quarters ahead of the summer examination season.  

For the Company as a whole, we executed our plan outlined last quarter both to slow down the pace of overall learning center expansion and to implement controls on costs and expenses. We added a net seven new learning centers in the quarter, a significant step-down from the over sixty learning centers we added over each of the previous two quarters. We also managed to moderate our selling and marketing expenses in the third quarter by reducing advertising spend versus the previous quarter levels and limiting new hires," Mr. Kauffman said. "While we worked this quarter on keeping costs and expenses in check, our revenues again outperformed. As a result, we are again revising our fiscal year 2012 full-year revenue growth estimate upward to the range of US$173.4 million to US$175.1 million, which is above the previously estimated range of US$ 165.9 million to US$171.4 million. Looking further ahead, we are targeting a 30-35% revenue increase for fiscal year 2013, reflecting our very positive view on the growth opportunities in China's K-12 after-school tutoring market."

Financial Results for the Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2012

Net Revenues

For the third quarter of fiscal year 2012, TAL reported net revenues of US$40.7 million, representing a 69.0% increase from US$24.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011. Growth was driven by an increased number of total student enrollments combined with higher average selling prices. Total student enrollments increased by 50.0% to approximately 141,100 from approximately 94,100 in the same period one year ago. The increase in enrollments was driven primarily by online and small class courses enrollments, and to a lesser extent by one-on-one. Average selling prices (ASPs) increased by 12.7% from US$256 in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011 to US$288 in the same quarter of fiscal year 2012, mainly driven by an increase in the hourly rate and the number of hours per class in the small class business and to a lesser extent, by an hourly rate increase in the 1-on-1 business from the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Operating Costs and Expenses

Operating costs and expenses were US$39.5 million, an 82.6% increase from US$21.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011. Non-GAAP operating costs and expenses, which exclude share-based compensation expenses, were US$38.0 million, a 93.0% increase from US$19.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011.

Cost of revenues increased by 68.5% to US$23.7 million, from US$14.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011. The increase in cost of revenues was primarily due to an increase in both teacher compensation and rental costs associated with the business expansion in this quarter, as well as other staff costs to support the larger number of learning centers in operation. Non-GAAP cost of revenues, which excludes share-based compensation expenses, increased by 71.5% to US$23.6 million, from US$13.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011.

Selling and marketing expenses increased by 137.3% to US$6.5 million, from US$2.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011. The increase was primarily due to an increase in sales and marketing staff expenses to support expanded program and service offerings and increased advertising expenses for marketing promotion. Non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses, which exclude share-based compensation expenses, increased by 154.4% to US$6.2 million, from US$2.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011.  

General and administrative expenses increased by 92.9% to US$9.3 million, from US$4.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011. The increase was mainly due to an increase in general and administrative staff expenses to support expanded operations and related rental and office expenses. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, which exclude share-based compensation expenses, increased by 135.0% to US$8.2 million, from US$3.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011.

Total share-based compensation expenses that were allocated to related operating costs and expenses amounted to US$1.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012, as compared to US$1.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011.

Gross Profit

Gross profit increased by 69.7% to US$17.0 million, from US$10.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011.

Income from Operations

Income from operations decreased by 52.2% to US$1.2 million, from US$2.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011. Non-GAAP income from operations, which excludes share-based compensation expenses, decreased by 40.0% to US$4.3 million, from US$2.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense was US$0.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012, as compared to US$0.3 million also in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011, mainly due to the decrease of income before income tax compared to the same quarter of fiscal year 2011, while the exemption period of one of TAL's entities expired in calendar year 2010 and this entity has become subject to a still preferential, but higher tax rate from calendar year 2011.

Net Income from Continuing Operations

Net income from continuing operations decreased by 43.7% to US$1.4 million, from US$2.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011.  

Net Income Attributable to TAL Education Group

Net income attributable to TAL decreased by 38.6% to US$1.4 million, from US$2.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011. Non-GAAP net income attributable to TAL, which excludes share-based compensation expenses, decreased by 32.2% to US$2.9 million, from US$4.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011.

Basic and Diluted Net Income per ADS

Basic and diluted net income per ADS were US$0.02 and US$0.02, respectively, in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ADS, which excludes share-based compensation expenses, were US$0.04 and US$0.04, respectively.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures for the quarter were US$41.3 million, driven largely by the payment of a portion of the purchase price of the office space purchased by the Company.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

As of November 30, 2011, the Company had US$168.3 million of cash and cash equivalents and US$10.2 million of term deposits, as compared to US$173.2 million of cash and cash equivalents and US$25.9 million of term deposit as of February 28, 2011.

Deferred Revenue

As of November 30, 2011, the Company's deferred revenue balance was US$77.4 million, representing an increase of 103.7% as compared to US$38.0 million as of November 30, 2010.

Business Outlook

Based on the Company's current estimates, total net revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012 are expected to be between US$48.1 million and US$49.8 million, representing an increase of 43% to 48% on a year-over-year basis.

The Company estimates its total net revenues for the full fiscal year ending February 29, 2012 will be in the range of US$173.4 million to US$175.1 million, which is above the previously estimated range of US$ 165.9 million to US$171.4 million.

Looking further ahead to fiscal year 2013, the Company expects total net revenues to be in the estimated range of US$225.4 million to US$234.1 million, representing an increase of approximately 30% to 35% compared to the low end of the fiscal year 2012 guidance, assuming no material change in exchange rates.

These estimates reflect the Company's current expectation, which is subject to change.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating its business, TAL considers and uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC as supplemental metrics to review and assess its operating performance: non-GAAP operating costs and expenses, non-GAAP cost of revenues, non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income attributable to TAL, non-GAAP basic and non-GAAP diluted net income per ADS. To present each of these non-GAAP measures, the Company excludes 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 table captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this release.

TAL believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding share-based expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. TAL believes that both management and investors benefit from 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 TAL's historical performance and liquidity. TAL computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter and from period to period. TAL 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 non-GAAP measures is that these non-GAAP measures exclude share-based compensation charge that has been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in the Company's 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.
