The Pro Forma Statement of Operations combines the historical consolidated statements of operations of Youku and Tudou, giving effect to the merger as if it had been completed on January 1, 2012.

These include: business taxes, value-added tax, share based compensation expenses, selling and general administrative expenses relating to product development, professional licensed content, and intangible assets related to purchased software.
