Additionally, we are starting to see significant revenue contribution from the NationSky acquisition for our enterprise business," commented Dr. Henry Lin, Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer of NQ Mobile. "While we continue to see strong growth in the global mobile security market, we also undertook an important strategic step in broadening our mobile Internet service offerings through the acquisition of Feiliu, to further transform NQ Mobile to become a leading mobile Internet platform and services company."

"In the third quarter, we continued our product expansion and were excited to bring more innovative products to the global market such as NQ Family Guardian," added Omar Khan, Co-Chief Executive Officer of NQ Mobile. "With the formal opening of our new international corporate headquarters in Dallas, we remain committed to our global expansion efforts and continue to see strong momentum in international business development with newly announced agreements with Go Wireless, Wireless and Cat® Phones in the United States, Celcom in Malaysia, epay in Australia and Phones4you in the United Kingdom.

Third Quarter 2012 Results

Revenues

Net revenues in the third quarter of 2012 were $25.8 million, an increase of 127.4% year-over-year from $11.3 million in the third quarter of 2011 and 29.3% sequentially from $20.0 million in the second quarter of 2012, exceeding the high end of the Company's previous guidance of $24 million and $25 million. Excluding revenues of $4.5 million from NationSky, net revenues increased 88.0% year-over-year and 15.0% sequentially to $21.3 million.

Net revenues from premium mobile Internet services increased 77.4% year-over-year and 14.2% sequentially to $18.4 million in the third quarter of 2012. The increases were primarily due to the strong and steady growth in the number of paying user accounts, which reflected growth in the number of registered and active user accounts, as well as increased use of NQ Mobile's premium services, particularly among the overseas paying user accounts, which generally pay a higher subscription rate. Revenue contribution from overseas users accounted for 54.1% of total net revenues from premium mobile Internet services in the third quarter of 2012, compared with 49.6% in the third quarter of 2011, and 51.2% in the second quarter of 2012. 

Net revenues from other services in the third quarter of 2012, which include revenues from NationSky, increased 642.6% year-over-year and 91.4% sequentially to $7.4 million. Excluding the revenues of $4.5 million from NationSky, net revenues from other services were $2.9 million, representing an increase of 196.5% year-over-year and 19.7% sequentially. The increases were mainly due to the growth in revenues from secured download and delivery services for mobile applications produced by third parties. The revenues from NationSky increased 218.0% sequentially to $4.5 million in the third quarter due to the strong growth in its enterprise business and new customer gains. Excluding revenues from NationSky, net revenues from other services as a percentage of total net revenue was 13.9% in the third quarter of 2012, compared with 8.8% in the third quarter of 2011 and 13.4% in the second quarter of 2012.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues in the third quarter of 2012 was $8.0 million, representing an increase of 264.0% year-over-year and 69.5% sequentially. Excluding $3.4 million of NationSky's contribution, cost of revenues increased 109.6% year-over-year and 28.4% sequentially to $4.6 million. The year-over-year and sequential increases were primarily due to increased customer acquisition costs as a result of more users acquired in the third quarter and higher revenue sharing with mobile payment service providers consistent with the increase of revenue from mobile payment service providers.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit in the third quarter of 2012 was $17.8 million, representing an increase of 94.8% year-over-year from $9.2 million in the third quarter of 2011 and 16.9% sequentially from $15.3 million in the second quarter of 2012. Gross margin, or gross profit as a percentage of net revenues, was 69.2% in the third quarter of 2012, compared with 80.7% in the third quarter of 2011 and 76.5% in the second quarter of 2012. Excluding the impact from NationSky, gross margin was 78.5% and 80.8% in the third and second quarter of 2012, respectively.  Given NationSky's lower margin business nature, gross margin is expected to decline further in the fourth quarter of 2012 as NationSky's revenue contribution becomes greater. NationSky's gross margin in the third quarter and second quarter of 2012 were about 24.6% and 19.9% on a standalone basis, respectively, and cost of revenues for NationSky primarily consist of the hardware device procurement cost.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses in the third quarter of 2012 were $18.8 million, representing an increase of 164.9% year-over-year and 36.7% sequentially. Non-GAAP operating expenses(6), were $11.1 million in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 146.7% year-over-year from $4.5 million in the third quarter of 2011 and 26.4% sequentially from $8.8 million in the second quarter of 2012. NationSky contributed $0.64 million in operating expenses in the third quarter of 2012.

Selling and marketing expenses were $5.7 million in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 227.9% year-over-year and 52.1% sequentially. The year-over-year and sequential increases were primarily due to higher marketing and advertising spending, higher share-based compensation expenses, and higher staff costs as a result of increases in salary and headcount. Non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses(7) were $4.7 million in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 251.6% year-over-year and 40.3% sequentially, compared with $1.3 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $3.4 million in the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year and sequential increases were primarily due to higher marketing and advertising spending and higher staff costs as a result of increases in salary and headcount.

General and administrative expenses were $10.3 million in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 151.8% year-over-year and 27.1% sequentially. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to higher share-based compensation expenses caused by the impact of additional option and restricted shares issuance to executives and non-employee consultants since the end of the third quarter of 2011, higher staff costs from salary and headcount increases, and higher legal and professional fees resulted from acquisition and investment activities made from the second quarter of 2012. The sequential increase was primarily due to higher share-based compensation expenses and higher staff costs. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses(8) were $4.0 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared with $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $3.7 million in the second quarter of 2012. The 91.6% year-over-year increase was primarily due to higher staff costs from salary and headcount increases, higher legal and professional fees and higher consulting fees resulted from acquisition and investment activities made from the second quarter of 2012 while the 9.5% sequential increase was primarily due to higher staff costs, higher travelling and entertainment costs partially offset by lower office related expenses.

Research and development expenses were $2.8 million in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 121.4% year-over-year and 47.6% sequentially. The year-over-year and sequential increases were primarily due to higher staff costs as a result of increases in salary and headcount and higher share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP research and development expenses(9) were $2.3 million in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 122.8% year-over-year and 35.4% sequentially, compared with $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $1.7 million in the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year and sequential increases were primarily due to higher staff costs from salary and headcount increases

Operating Loss and Operating Margin

Operating loss in the third quarter of 2012 was $1.0 million, down from an income of $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2011 and an income of $1.5 million in the second quarter of 2012. The main reason for the decrease in operating income was the significant increase in share-based compensation expenses associated with newly hired executives and newly engaged non-employee consultants in the first three quarters of 2012.

Non-GAAP operating income was $6.8 million in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 44.4% year-over-year from $4.7 million in the third quarter of 2011 and a sequential increase of 4.1% from $6.5 million in the second quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP operating margin(10) was 26.4% in the third quarter of 2012, compared with 41.6% in the third quarter of 2011 and 32.8% in the second quarter of 2012. Excluding the impact from NationSky, non-GAAP operating margin was 29.8% and 34.5% in the third quarter and second quarter of 2012, respectively. NationSky's operating margin was about 10.3% and 10.4% on a standalone basis in the third and second quarter of 2012, respectively.

Foreign Exchange Loss, Interest Income and Gain on change of interest in An Associate
Foreign exchange loss was $0.2 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared with a gain of $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2011 and a loss of $0.3 million in the second quarter of 2012. The foreign exchange loss was primarily attributable to the depreciation of RMB against US$ as a significant portion of IPO proceeds was converted into RMB and placed in bank deposits since the second quarter of 2011.  Interest income was $0.8 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared with $0.5 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $0.8 million in the second quarter of 2012. The significant year-over-year increases were primarily due to the higher term deposit position. The company also recorded a gain on change of interest in an associate of $0.9 million in the third quarter of 2012. The Company and all other existing shareholders transferred to a new shareholder 20% of their equity  interest in Feiliu, which we accounted for by equity method, in exchange for the transfer of certain intangible assets.

Income Tax

Income tax expenses were $0.31 million, compared with an income tax expense of $0.08 million in the third quarter of 2011 and an income tax expense of $0.12 million in the second quarter of 2012.  The sequential and year-over-year increase is mainly due to more taxable profit generated.  

Net Income

Net income attributable to NQ Mobile was $0.3 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared with an income of $4.3 million in the third quarter of 2011 and an income of $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP net income attributable to NQ Mobile was $8.1 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared with $7.0 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $7.1 million in the second quarter of 2012.

Cash Flows and Deferred Revenue

Net cash flow generated from operations for the third quarter of 2012 was $6.9 million, compared with $2.6 million for the corresponding period of 2011 and $1.9 million for the second quarter of 2012. As of September 30, 2012, the Company had total cash position of $126.2 million ($35.1 million in cash and cash equivalents and $91.1 million in term deposits) and deferred revenue of $10.9 million.

Equity Investments

Equity investments, referring to those investments made on equity instruments, were $16.4 million as of the end of third quarter of 2012 compared to $6.7 million as of the end of second quarter of 2012 because the Company made minority equity investments in three mobile internet companies in the third quarter totaling $8.7 million of which the investment in Hesine Technologies contributed $6.4 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's financial results prepared in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), NQ Mobile's management uses non-GAAP measures of cost of revenues, operating expenses, operating income and net income attributable to NQ Mobile, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude the share-based compensation expenses. The Company also uses non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per ADS, which is the non-GAAP net income attributable to common shareholders divided by weighted average number of diluted ADS.

The Company's non-GAAP financial information is provided as additional information to help the Company's investors compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis and to enhance investors' overall understanding of the historical and current financial performance of the Company's continuing operations and its prospects for the future. The Company's non-GAAP financial information 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. In addition, the Company's calculation of this non-GAAP financial information may be different from the calculation used by other companies, and therefore comparability may be limited.

The non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of NQ Mobile's current financial performance and prospects for the future. A limitation of using non-GAAP cost of revenues, operating expenses, operating income and net income attributable to NQ Mobile, excluding share-based compensation expenses, 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. 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 NQ Mobile's unaudited financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Note 1: The net income attributable to common shareholders reflected the impact of non-cash accounting charges relating to the preferred shares.  All outstanding preferred shares were automatically converted into common shares upon the completion of the Company's IPO on May 5, 2011. Thereafter, there was no accretion and allocation of net income to the preferred shares and all net income was attributable to the common shareholders subsequent to IPO.

 

Note 2: The Company was listed in May 2011, the net earnings per ADS for the three months ended March 31, 2011 is calculated using the same conversion ratio assuming the ADS was existed during such period.  Each ADS represents five Class A common shares.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution. EdgeX Foundry is unifying the community around a common IoT edge framework and an ecosystem of interoperable components.
DX World EXPO, LLC, a Lighthouse Point, Florida-based startup trade show producer and the creator of "DXWorldEXPO® - Digital Transformation Conference & Expo" has announced its executive management team. The team is headed by Levent Selamoglu, who has been named CEO. "Now is the time for a truly global DX event, to bring together the leading minds from the technology world in a conversation about Digital Transformation," he said in making the announcement.
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan. It must do so by realizing that we now live in a data-driven age, and that technologies such as Cloud Computing, Big Data, the IoT, Cognitive Computing, and Blockchain are only tools. In her general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rebecca Wanta explained how the strategy must focus on DX and include a commitment from top management to create great IT jobs, monitor ...

The IoT Will Grow: In what might be the most obvious prediction of the decade, the IoT will continue to expand next year, with more and more devices coming online every single day. What isn’t so obvious about this prediction: where that growth will occur. The retail, healthcare, and industrial/supply chain industries will likely see the greatest growth. Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
