Jul 27, 2015, 02:10 ET from Changyou.com Limited

BEIJING, July 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Changyou.com Limited ("Changyou" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: CYOU), a leading online game developer and operator in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Second Quarter 2015 Highlights

  • Total revenues were US$202 million, representing an increase of 14% year-over-year and a decrease of 3% quarter-over-quarter, exceeding guidance by $12 million.(1)
  • Online game revenues were US$172 million, representing an increase of 12% year-over-year and a decrease of 7% quarter-over-quarter, exceeding guidance by $7 million.(1)
  • Non-GAAP (2) net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited was US$52 million, exceeding guidance (1) by US$17 million. This compares with US$52 million in the first quarter of 2015 and US$2 million in the second quarter of 2014.
  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited per fully-diluted ADS (3) was US$0.95. This compares with US$0.97 in the first quarter of 2015 and US$0.04 in the second quarter of 2014.

Mr. Dewen Chen, Co-CEO, commented "TLBB PC once again delivered to our expectations and we continue to ensure in-game balance and user stability. TLBB 3D mobile game is in its ninth month of operation and we endeavor to extend its lifespan through regular issuances of expansion packs. We are pleased with the success that our flagship games TLBB PC and TLBB 3D have achieved in their respective markets and we remain committed to introducing more high quality games to the market."

"We have achieved further margin improvements in our mobile platform business and we will continue to explore and experiment with new possibilities under effective cost controls," added Mr. Chen.

Ms. Jasmine Zhou, CFO of Changyou concluded, "We are pleased to announce that our top line and bottom line exceeded our guidance by $12 million and $17 million respectively. The results include those of 7Road, as its divestment has not yet been completed. The management team remains focused on cultivating the best R&D environment under an efficient operation model."

[1] As noted in the Company's report of results for the first quarter of 2015, the Company's guidance for the second quarter of 2015 assumed that the sale of the Company's 7Road business would be completed during that quarter. Therefore, expected results for 7Road for the second quarter were excluded from the Company's second quarter guidance. However, as the sale has not yet been completed, the results of the 7Road business are included in the Company's results for the second quarter as reported here. If the total revenues and net income of 7Road were deducted from the second quarter results, total revenues and online game revenues would be in line with the Company's guidance and non-GAAP net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited would exceed the Company's guidance. [2] Non-GAAP results exclude share-based compensation expense, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions. Explanation of the Company's non-GAAP financial measures and related reconciliations to GAAP financial measures are included in the accompanying "Non-GAAP Disclosure" and "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Results of Operations Measures to the Nearest Comparable GAAP Measures." [3] Each ADS represents two Class A ordinary shares.

Second Quarter 2015 Operational Results

  • Total average monthly active accounts (4) of the Company's MMO games were 4.4 million, representing a decrease of 36% year-over-year and 10% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter decreases were partially due to our continued efforts to shut down inauthentic accounts to ensure a balanced in-game environment for TLBB and were also a result of the natural progression of our older games.
  • Total average monthly active accounts of the Company's mobile games were 5.7 million, representing an increase of more than three-fold year-over-year and 30% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year increase was due to the launch of TLBB 3D, Dashfire and Twin of Brothers. The quarter-over-quarter increase was a result of the new mobile games, Dashfire and Twin of Brothers, being launched in the quarter.
  • Total quarterly aggregate active paying accounts (5) of the Company's MMO games were 1.1 million, representing a decrease of 21% year-over-year and flat quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year decrease was a result of the natural progression of our older games.
  • Total quarterly aggregate active paying accounts of the Company's mobile games were 1.4 million, representing an increase of more than ten-fold year-over-year and 56% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year increase was largely due to the launch of TLBB 3D, Dashfire and Twin of Brothers. The quarter-over-quarter increase was largely due to the launch of the new mobile games Dashfire and Twin of Brothers during the second quarter.

Second Quarter 2015 Unaudited Financial Results

Revenues

Total revenues were US$202 million, representing an increase of 14% year-over-year and a decrease of 3% quarter-over-quarter, exceeding guidance by $12 million (1).

Online game revenues were US$172 million, representing an increase of 12% year-over-year and a decrease of 7% quarter-over-quarter, exceeding guidance by $7 million (1). The year-over-year increase was mainly due to the launch of TLBB 3D in the fourth quarter of 2014. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly due to a sequential decline in revenues from TLBB 3D consistent with the typical progression of a mobile game, partially offset by incremental revenues from Dashfire and Twin of Brothers, which were launched in the second quarter of 2015.

Online advertising revenues were US$15 million, representing an increase of 3% year-over-year and 57% quarter-over-quarter. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly due to a seasonal pickup typical for advertising in China in the second quarter of 2015.

Internet value-added services ("IVAS") revenues increased 30% year-over-year and 6% quarter-over-quarter to US$6 million. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to increased revenues from new PC and mobile products including the Dolphin Browser, which was acquired in the third quarter of 2014.

Other revenues, which consist of cinema advertising revenues, increased 93% year-over-year and 3% quarter-over-quarter to US$8 million. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases reflected an upgrade in advertising resources as well as improvements made to the advertising sales function.

[4] Average Monthly Active Accounts for a given period refers to the number of registered accounts that were logged in to these games at least once during the period. [5] Quarterly Aggregate Active Paying Accounts for a given period refers to the number of accounts from which game points are utilized at least once during the quarter.

Gross profit

GAAP and non-GAAP gross profit both increased 6% year-over-year and were flat quarter-over-quarter at US$142 million and US$143 million, respectively. GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin were 70% and 71%, respectively, compared with 69% for both in the first quarter of 2015 and 76% for both in the second quarter of 2014.

Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross profit of the online games business increased 4% year-over-year and decreased 5% quarter-over-quarter to US$128 million. Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin of the online games business were 75%, compared with 73% in the first quarter of 2015 and 80% in the second quarter of 2014. The year-over-year decrease in gross margin was mainly due to a change in the revenue mix as the Company launched new mobile games that typically require additional revenue-sharing payments.

Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross profit of the online advertising business increased 7% year-over-year and 92% quarter-over-quarter to US$12 million. Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin of the online advertising business were 79%, compared with 64% in the first quarter of 2015, and 75% in the second quarter of 2014. The quarter-over-quarter increase in gross margin was due to an increase in online advertising revenues as a result of a seasonal pickup typical for advertising in China in the second quarter of 2015.

Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross profit for the IVAS business were US$1 million. This compares with a gross loss of US$0.2 million in the first quarter of 2015, and a gross loss of US$0.4 million in the second quarter of 2014.

Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross profit of the other business were US$1 million. This compares with a gross profit of US$2 million in the first quarter of 2015 and a gross loss of US$0.1 million in the second quarter of 2014.

Operating expenses

Total operating expenses were US$97 million, representing a decrease of 31% year-over-year and an increase of 8% quarter-over-quarter.

Product development expenses were US$42 million, representing a decrease of 14% year-over-year and 7% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year decrease was mainly due to a reduction in salary and benefits as a result of a reduction in redundant workforce that was implemented in the fourth quarter of 2014 and the first quarter of 2015. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly a result of an impairment charge that was recognized for a number of licensed PC games in the first quarter.

Sales and marketing expenses were US$33 million, representing a decrease of 52% year-over-year and an increase of 51% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year decrease was mainly due to a significant reduction in marketing and promotional spending for mobile internet products over the last three quarters, which was partially offset by an increase in marketing spending to promote new expansion packs and new games, including TLBB 3D, Dashfire and Twin of Brothers. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly due to an increase in marketing spending to promote the new expansion packs and new games launched in the second quarter of 2015.

General and administrative expenses were US$22 million, flat year-over-year and representing a decrease of 4% quarter-over-quarter. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly due to a reduction in severance payments and a reduction in salary and benefits expense as a result of a reduction in redundant workforce that was implemented in the first quarter of 2015.

Operating profit

Operating profit was US$45 million. This compares with an operating profit of US$53 million in the first quarter of 2015 and an operating loss of US$7 million in the second quarter of 2014. 

Non-GAAP operating profit was US$52 million. This compares with a non-GAAP operating profit of US$56 million in the first quarter of 2015 and a non-GAAP operating loss of US$7 million in the second quarter of 2014. The year-over-year positive change resulted from a reduction in marketing and promotional spending for mobile Internet products, as well as an overall increase in operating efficiencies.

Income tax expense

In March 2015, the Company's main operating entity in China was approved as a "2015 National High-Tech Enterprise" and, as a result, the entity is entitled to a preferential corporate income tax rate of 15% for the 2015 and 2016 tax years.

The Company recorded income tax expense of US$8 million in the second quarter of 2015. This compares with income tax expense of US$12 million in the first quarter of 2015 and an income tax benefit of US$2 million in the second quarter of 2014.

Net income

Net income was US$43 million. This compares with US$47 million in the first quarter of 2015 and US$2 million in the second quarter of 2014.

Non-GAAP net income was US$50 million. This compares with US$51 million in the first quarter of 2015 and US$2 million in the second quarter of 2014.

Net loss attributable to non-controlling interests

GAAP and non-GAAP net loss attributable to non-controlling interests was US$2 million and US$1 million, respectively, in the second quarter of 2015, compared with US$1 million in the first quarter of 2015, and US$0.4 million in the second quarter of 2014. Non-controlling interests represent the non-controlling interests in RaidCall and in MoboTap Inc. ("MoboTap"), the developer of the Dolphin Browser.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

Revision of Non-GAAP Reporting

Prior to 2014 Q4, the Company's determined its non-GAAP results excluding share-based compensation expense, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and related tax impact, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions.

[6] Net cash is calculated as the sum of cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments, and current and non-current restricted time deposits, minus short-term and long-term bank loans.

In 2014 Q4, we reassessed our definition of non-GAAP to better reflect the economic substance and performance of the Company. With the consideration that goodwill impairment and impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses can be an indicator of the economic substance of the acquired businesses, we revised the definition of non-GAAP that we use, and excluded only compensation expense of share-based awards, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income/expense from adjustments of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions.

Our 2015 Q2 results are presented using this revised definition of non-GAAP.

Revised Non-GAAP Disclosure

To supplement the unaudited consolidated financial information prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP"), Changyou's management uses non-GAAP measures of gross profit, operating profit, net income, net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited and diluted net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited per ADS, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude the compensation cost of share-based awards granted, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions. 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.

Changyou's management believes that excluding share-based compensation expense, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for itself and investors. Further, the amount of share-based compensation expense, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions cannot be anticipated by management, and these expenses are not built into the Company's annual budgets and quarterly forecasts, which generally will be the basis for information Changyou provides to analysts and investors as guidance for future operating performance. As share-based compensation expense, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions does not involve subsequent cash outflow, Changyou does not factor this in when evaluating and approving expenditures or when determining the allocation of its resources to its business operations. 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 share-based compensation expense, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions.

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

Notes to Financial Information

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