SECOND QUARTER 2015 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the second quarter of 2015 were US$93.2 million, a 30.4% increase from the corresponding period in 2014, primarily due to increases in one-time commission revenues, recurring service fees and performance-based income.

  • Wealth Management Business
    • Net revenues from one-time commissions for the second quarter of 2015 were US$35.7 million, a 56.4% increase from the corresponding period in 2014, primarily due to an increase in the aggregate value of the wealth management products distributed by the Company.
    • Net revenues from recurring service fees for the second quarter of 2015 were US$25.0 million, a 3.2% increase from the corresponding period in 2014, mainly due to the cumulative effect of finance products previously distributed by the Company with chargeable recurring service fees, which was partially offset by the impact of lower recurring service fee rates due to a change in product mix.
    • Net revenues from other service fees for the second quarter of 2015 were US$11.9 million, a 1,338.1% increase from the corresponding period in 2014, primarily consisting of performance-based income received for secondary equity market fund products distributed by the Company.
  • Asset Management Business
    • Net revenues from recurring service fees for the second quarter of 2015 were US$13.0 million, a 12.3% increase from the corresponding period in 2014, primarily due to the increase in assets under management by the Company, partially offset by the impact of lower management fee rates due to a change in composition of asset types under management.
    • Net revenues from other service fees for the second quarter of 2015 were US$4.7 million, primarily consisting of performance-based income received for managing funds of secondary equity market funds. Performance-based income decreased by 58.8% compared with the corresponding period in 2014, due primarily to the timing of performance-based income from real estate funds being recognized. We received US$11.4 million performance-based income along with the full realization of performance-based income from the maturity of two real estate funds managed by us during the second quarter of 2014.
  • Internet Finance Business
    • Net revenues for the second quarter of 2015 were US$2.8 million, a 489.7% increase from the corresponding period in 2014, primarily because this is a new and fast growing business segment for the Company.

Operating costs and expenses

Operating costs and expenses include compensation and benefits, selling expenses, G&A expenses, other operating expenses and government subsidies. Operating cost and expenses for the second quarter of 2015 were US$62.0 million, a 43.6% increase from the corresponding period in 2014.

  • Wealth Management Business Operating costs and expenses for the second quarter of 2015 were US$45.4 million, a 47.5% increase from the corresponding period in 2014.
    • Compensation and benefits includes compensation for relationship managers and back-office employees. Compensation and benefits for the second quarter of 2015 were US$36.7 million, a 58.3% increase from the corresponding period in 2014. In the second quarter of 2015, relationship manager compensation increased by 60.3% from the corresponding period in 2014, reflecting an increase in the aggregate value of financial products distributed and an increase in commission rate to relationship managers driven by the change in product mix. Other compensation for the second quarter of 2015 increased by 55.4% from the corresponding period in 2014, primarily due to increases in both the number of back-office employees and share-based compensation.
    • Selling expenses for the second quarter of 2015 were US$7.2 million, a 45.7% increase from the corresponding period in 2014, primarily due to increased general marketing expenses resulting from an increase in the Company's marketing efforts, as well as increased training expenses and rental fees.
    • G&A expenses for the second quarter of 2015 were US$2.6 million, a 5.0% decrease from the corresponding period in 2014.
    • Other operating expenses, which include other costs incurred directly in relation to the Company's revenues, for the second quarter of 2015 were US$0.9 million, an increase of 43.6% from the corresponding period in 2014. The increase was primarily due to the growth of other businesses within the wealth management segment.
    • Government subsidies represent cash subsidies received from local governments for general corporate purposes. The Company received US$2.1 million in government subsidies in the second quarter of 2015, compared to US$0.8 million in the corresponding period of 2014.
  • Asset Management Business Operating costs and expenses for the second quarter of 2015 were US$8.7 million, a 9.3% decrease from the corresponding period in 2014.
    • Compensation and benefits include compensation of managers of institutional client relationships, fund managers and back-office employees. Compensation and benefits for the second quarter of 2015 were US$8.1 million, a 6.3% decrease from the corresponding period in 2014, primarily due to a decrease in performance fee compensation to fund managers as lower performance-based income was recognized in the second quarter of 2015 compared to the corresponding period in 2014.
    • Selling expenses for the second quarter of 2015 were US$0.8 million, a 64.3% increase from the corresponding period in 2014.
    • G&A expenses for the second quarter of 2015 were US$1.5 million, a 16.9% decrease from the corresponding period in 2014, primarily due to decreased consulting fees.
    • Government subsidies represent cash subsidies received from local governments for general corporate purposes. The Company received US$2.6 million in government subsidies in the second quarter of 2015, compared to US$0.1 million in the corresponding period in 2014.
  • Internet Finance Business Operating costs and expenses, which represent the Company's expenses in human resources, marketing and internet infrastructure, as well as other expenses incurred in promoting the Company's internet finance business, for the second quarter of 2015 were US$7.9 million, primarily consisting of compensation and benefits of US$4.6 million, selling expenses of US$0.8 million, G&A expenses of US$1.0 million and other operating expenses of US$1.5 million.

Operating Margin

Operating margin for the second quarter of 2015 was 33.5%, as compared to 39.6% for the corresponding period in 2014.

  • Wealth Management Business Operating margin for the second quarter of 2015 was 37.6%, compared to 35.8% for the corresponding period in 2014. The increase was mainly due to higher growth rate of net revenues than of operating costs and expenses in the second quarter of 2015, compared to the corresponding period in 2014.
  • Asset Management Business Operating margin decreased to 50.8% for the second quarter of 2015 from 53.2% for the corresponding period in 2014. The decrease was primarily because the Company received less performance-based income in the second quarter of 2015, compared to the corresponding period in 2014.
  • Internet Finance Business Operating loss for the second quarter of 2015 was US$5.1 million compared with US$1.1 million for the corresponding period of the prior year.

Income Tax Expenses

Income tax expenses for the second quarter of 2015 were US$7.4 million, a 3.9% decrease from the corresponding period in 2014. The decrease was primarily due to lower effective tax rate.

DISCUSSION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES:

In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company's earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the effects of all forms of share-based compensation. The reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest GAAP measures is set forth in the table captioned "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results" below.

The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The financial results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP and reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measure used by the Company may be prepared differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.

When evaluating the Company's operating performance in the periods presented, management reviewed non-GAAP net income results reflecting adjustments to exclude the impacts of share-based compensation to supplement U.S. GAAP financial data. As such, the Company believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP income per diluted ADS and non-GAAP net margin provides important supplemental information to investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations in a manner consistent with that used by management. Pursuant to U.S. GAAP, the Company recognized significant amounts of expenses for the restricted shares and share options in the periods presented. The Company utilized the non-GAAP financial results to make financial results comparable period to period and to better understand its historical business operations.
