(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20041118/ELONGLOGO)

Highlights

  • Hotel room nights booked through eLong in the third quarter increased 70% to 4.6 million room nights compared to 2.7 million in the prior year period. Online hotel bookings comprised 76% of total hotel bookings, compared to 60% in the third quarter of 2011.
  • Hotel commission revenue for the third quarter increased 24% to RMB156.6 million (US$24.9 million), compared to RMB126.0 million (US$19.8 million) in the third quarter of 2011.
  • Net revenues for the third quarter increased 20% to RMB197.3 million (US$31.4 million), compared to RMB164.3 million (US$25.8 million) in the third quarter of 2011.
  • Domestic hotel coverage network expanded 54% to almost 36,000 domestic hotels as of September 30, 2012, compared to 23,000 as of September 30, 2011. In addition, eLong offers over 160,000 international hotels through a direct connection to Expedia.
  • Entered into a new cooperation agreement with Expedia that provides an increased level of strategic cooperation with our largest shareholder.
  • Received several industry awards and honors, including: being named (1) a Top Micro-Innovation Company by BizReview Magazine, (2) a 2012 China Best Employer award by Zhaopin.com and Beijing University, and (3) a 2012 China Best Call Center by the China Federation of IT Promotion.

"In the third quarter, we launched our largest-ever marketing campaign, featuring our 'Book Hotel, Use eLong' branding and increased coupon promotions. The campaign contributed to significantly improved brand awareness and growth in our market share. It did come with a price, but we are willing to take a short-term loss for long term gain. Going forward, we will continue with our online hotel strategy, invest aggressively and drive harder," said Guangfu Cui, Chief Executive Officer of eLong.

"We are strong believers in the eLong team and their ability to grow and continue to gain share in China. We are just getting started," said Dara Khosrowshahi, President and Chief Executive Officer of Expedia.

Hotel Reservations

Hotel commission revenue increased 24% in the third quarter of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011, primarily due to higher volume, partially offset by lower commission per room night. Room nights booked through eLong in the third quarter increased 70% year-on-year to 4.6 million. Commission per room night decreased 27% year-on-year, primarily due to an increase in the size of our coupon program both in terms of the number of hotels and the cash-back amounts offered, as well as the growth of groupbuy and budget hotels and lower average daily rates across other hotel segments. Hotel commission revenue grew to 74% of total revenues from 72% in the prior year quarter.

Air Ticketing

Air ticketing commission revenue increased 5% in the third quarter of 2012 compared to the prior year quarter, driven by a 12% increase in air segments to 662,000, partially offset by a 7% decrease in commission per segment. Commission per segment decreased due to a lower air commission rate compared to the same quarter of 2011 as well as air segments booked using our new air coupon program. Air ticketing commission revenue decreased to 17% of total revenues from 19% in the prior year quarter.

Other

Other revenue is primarily derived from advertising and travel insurance. Other revenue increased 30% year-on-year in the third quarter of 2012, mainly driven by increased advertising revenue. Other revenue was 9% of total revenues, consistent with the prior year quarter.

Profitability

Gross margin in the third quarter of 2012 decreased to 70%, compared to 73% in the third quarter of 2011. Gross margin decline was primarily due to lower hotel commission revenue per room night as well as higher volume-driven fulfillment costs.

Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011 were as follows (in RMB million):

Total operating expenses increased 80% for the third quarter of 2012 compared to the third quarter of 2011. Total operating expenses increased to 99% of net revenues in the third quarter of 2012 from 66% in the prior year quarter which led to an operating loss of RMB56.2 million compared to operating income of RMB11.6 million in the prior year quarter.

Service development expenses consist of expenses related to technology and our product offering, including our websites, platforms and other system development, as well as our supplier relations function. Service development expenses increased 27% compared to the prior year quarter, mainly driven by higher personnel expenses. Service development expenses increased to 17% of net revenues in the third quarter of 2012 from 16% in the same quarter of 2011.

Sales and marketing expenses for the third quarter of 2012 increased 110% over the prior year quarter, mainly driven by increased advertising expenses from our marketing campaign and a further level of increased investment in online marketing channels. Sales and marketing expenses increased to 74% of net revenues in the third quarter of 2012 from 42% in the same quarter of 2011.

General and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2012 increased 25% compared to the prior year quarter, mainly driven by higher personnel expenses. General and administrative expenses were 8% of net revenues, consistent with the same quarter of 2011.

Other income/(expense) represents interest income, foreign exchange losses and other income/(expense). Other income was RMB16.2 million in the third quarter of 2012 compared to other income of RMB0.9 million in the third quarter of 2011, primarily driven by an increase in interest income and a decrease in foreign exchange losses. Interest income in the third quarter of 2012 increased to RMB15.0 million, compared to RMB7.2 million in the third quarter of 2011, due to higher interest yield. Foreign exchange losses on our cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments decreased to RMB0.1 million in the third quarter of 2012, from RMB5.9 million in the third quarter of 2011 as we held a smaller percentage of our cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments and restricted cash in US dollars than in the prior year quarter.

As of September 30, 2012, eLong held cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments and restricted cash of RMB1.9 billion (US$306 million), of which 96% was held in Renminbi and 4% was held in US dollars, compared to total cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments and restricted cash of RMB1.9 billion (US$291 million), of which 86% was held in Renminbi and 14% held in US dollars as of September 30, 2011.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2012 was RMB33.1 million, compared to net income of RMB9.4 million during the prior year quarter.

Net loss per ADS and diluted net loss per ADS for the third quarter of 2012 were each RMB0.96 (US$0.16), compared to net income per ADS and diluted net income per ADS of RMB0.28 (US$0.04) in the prior year quarter.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, this press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures including net income per ADS, diluted net income per ADS, Adjusted Earnings Before Interests, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA"), Adjusted Net Income ("ANI") and Adjusted Net Income Per Share. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures may help investors understand eLong's current financial performance and compare business trends among different reporting periods. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP. We seek to compensate for the limitations of the non-GAAP measures presented by also providing the comparable GAAP measures, GAAP financial statements, and descriptions of the reconciling items and adjustments, to derive the non-GAAP measures. 

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income plus (1) interest expense (income); (2) income tax expense; (3) depreciation; (4) amortization of intangible assets; (5) share-based compensation charges; (6) foreign exchange losses (gains); (7) acquisition-related impacts, including (i) goodwill and intangible asset impairment, and (ii) losses (gains) recognized on noncontrolling investment basis adjustments when we acquire controlling interests; and (8) certain other items, including restructuring charges and equity in net loss (income) of affiliates. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is a useful financial metric to assess our operating and financial performance before the impact of investing and financing transactions, if any, and income tax expense. Since share-based compensation charges are non-cash expenses, we believe excluding them from our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA allows us to provide investors with a more useful tool for assessing our operating and financial performance. In addition, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA is used by other companies and may be used by investors as a measure of our financial performance. The presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an indication that eLong's future results will be unaffected by other charges and gains we consider to be outside the ordinary course of our business. The use of Adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations. Amortization and depreciation expenses for various non-current assets, share-based compensation charges, other income/(expenses), and income tax expense have been and will be incurred and are not reflected in the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA. Each of these items should also be considered in the overall evaluation of our results. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA does not consider capital expenditures and other investing activities and should not be considered as a measure of eLong's liquidity. We seek to compensate for these limitations by providing the relevant disclosure of our amortization and depreciation expenses, and share-based compensation charges in the reconciliations to the GAAP financial measure. The term Adjusted EBITDA is not defined under GAAP, and Adjusted EBITDA is not measure of net income, income from operations, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. In addition, eLong's Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to Adjusted EBITDA or similarly titled measures utilized by other companies since such other companies may not calculate Adjusted EBITDA in the same manner as we do.

Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP measures. We present a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to GAAP below.

Adjusted Net Income generally captures all items on the statements of operations that occur in normal course operations and have been, or ultimately will be, settled in cash and is defined as net income plus net of tax: (1) share-based compensation charges; (2) acquisition-related impacts, including (i) amortization of intangible assets, including as part of equity-method investments, and goodwill and intangible asset impairment, (ii) losses (gains) recognized on changes in the value of contingent consideration arrangements, and (iii) losses (gains) recognized on noncontrolling investment basis adjustments when we acquire controlling interests; (3) foreign exchange losses; (4) certain other items, including restructuring charges; and (5) discontinued operations. We believe Adjusted Net Income is useful to investors because it represents eLong's results, taking into account depreciation, which management believes is an ongoing cost of doing business, but excluding the impact of other non-cash expenses, infrequently occurring items and items not directly tied to the core operations of our businesses.

Adjusted Net Income Per Share is defined as Adjusted Net Income divided by adjusted weighted average shares outstanding, which include dilution from options and warrants per the treasury stock method and include all shares relating to Performance Units in shares outstanding for Adjusted Net Income Per Share. This differs from the GAAP method for including Performance Units, which treats them on a treasury stock method basis. Shares outstanding for Adjusted Net Income Per Share purposes are therefore higher than shares outstanding for GAAP Net Income Per Share purposes. We believe Adjusted Net Income Per Share is useful to investors because it represents, on a per share basis, eLong's consolidated results, taking into account depreciation, which we believe is an ongoing cost of doing business, as well as other items which are not allocated to the operating businesses such as interest income and income tax expense, but excluding the effects of non-cash expenses not directly tied to the core operations of our businesses. Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Per Share have similar limitations as Adjusted EBITDA. In addition, Adjusted Net Income does not include all items that affect our net income and net income per share for the period. Therefore, we think it is important to evaluate these measures along with our consolidated statements of operations.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Per Share should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP measures. We present a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP below.
