Despite a challenging 2012, we made a number of strategic investments that will lay further foundation for sustainable growth. They include a mutual fund distribution license and an offshore Hong Kong office, both of which will increase our product portfolio and client engagement. In addition, we have achieved significant growth in our asset management business. We began managing real estate fund products in the second half of the year. With over US$1.2 billion of assets under management, including our fund of private equity funds, our asset management business will complement our distribution business, providing another engine for growth." Ms. Wang further remarked, "We are also pleased to announce our second annual dividend, which we believe is in the best interests of our shareholders."

Mr. Tom Wu, Chief Financial Officer, said, "Robust results of our fourth quarter, and second half of 2012, reflect significant investments and improvements we have made in our business, which we expect to leverage in the coming years.  In 2013, we will continue to focus on growth, profitability and productivity.  Our second annual dividend again reflects our commitment to shareholders and the Company's strong cash flow."    

FOURTH QUARTER 2012 AND FULL YEAR 2012 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 were US$25.1 million, a 73.7% increase from the corresponding period in 2011, due to increases in both one-time commission revenues and recurring service fees.

Net revenues from one-time commissions for the fourth quarter of 2012 were US$11.6 million, a 53.6% increase from the corresponding period in 2011. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to increases in both transaction value and average commission rate.

Net revenues from recurring service fees for the fourth quarter of 2012 were US$13.1 million, a 90.1% increase from the corresponding period in 2011. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to the cumulative effect of private equity funds previously distributed by the Company and an increase in assets under management by the Company in the second half of 2012, primarily real estate funds managed by the Company.

Net revenues for the full year 2012 were US$86.7 million, a 20.1% increase from 2011, due to an increase of US$17.1 million in net revenues from recurring service fees, which were partially offset by a decrease in net revenues from one-time commissions.

Net revenues from one-time commissions for the full year 2012 were US$46.2 million, a 7.0% decrease from 2011 due to a decrease in average commission rate in 2012, despite an increase in transaction value.

Net revenues from recurring service fees for the full year 2012 were US$39.6 million, a 76.3% increase from 2011, mainly driven by the cumulative effect of private equity fund and securities investment fund products distributed previously and an increase in assets under management in second half of 2012, primarily real estate funds managed by the Company.

Operating Margin

Operating margin for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 27.0%, as compared to 14.5% for the corresponding period in 2011. The year-over-year increase for the fourth quarter of 2012 was driven by growth of net revenues exceeding those in operating cost and expenses; Operating margin for the full year 2012 was 29.8%, as compared to 34.8% for 2011. The decrease in operating margin for the full year 2012 was primarily due to an increase in operating cost and expenses mainly in employee compensation and rental expenses outpacing growth in net revenues.

Operating cost and expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012, including cost of revenues, selling expenses, G&A expenses and other operating income, were US$18.3 million, a 48.2% increase from the corresponding period in 2011. Operating cost and expenses for the full year 2012 were US$60.9 million, a 29.3% increase from 2011.

Cost of revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 totaled US$4.8 million, a 25.4% increase from the corresponding period in 2011. Cost of revenues for the full year 2012 totaled US$18.0 million, a 21.4% increase from 2011. The year-over-year increases for the fourth quarter of 2012 and the full year 2012 were both primarily due to increases in compensation expenses paid to relationship managers as a result of the increase in transaction value.

Selling expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were US$7.6 million, a 40.6% increase from the corresponding period in 2011. Selling expenses as a percentage of net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 30.4%, as compared to 37.5% for the corresponding period in 2011. Selling expenses for the full year 2012 were US$27.3 million, a 41.9% increase from 2011. The year-over-year increases for the fourth quarter of 2012 and the full year 2012 were both primarily due to increases in personnel expenses, rental expenses, general marketing activities and share-based compensation expenses as the Company strengthened its selling and marketing functions.

G&A expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were US$6.2 million, a 96.5% increase from the corresponding period in 2011. G&A expenses as a percentage of net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 24.6%, as compared to 21.7% for the corresponding period in 2011. G&A expenses for the full year 2012 were US$19.8 million, a 46.3% increase from 2011. The year-over-year increases for the fourth quarter of 2012 were primarily due to increases in personnel expenses, professional consulting fees, and share-based compensation; and for full year 2012 were primarily due to increases in personnel expenses, share-based compensation and depreciation expenses.

Other operating income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was US$0.3 million, as compared to US$17.6 thousand for the corresponding period in 2011. Other operating income for the full year 2012 was US$4.3 million, as compared to US$0.6 million for 2011. Other operating income includes government subsidies received in the PRC from local governments for general corporate purposes.

Income Tax Expenses

Income tax expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were US$2.7 million, a 538.1% increase from the corresponding period in 2011. The year-over-year increase for the fourth quarter of 2012 was due to an increase in taxable income and changes in deferred tax assets. Income tax expenses for the full year 2012 were US$9.0 million, a 15.4% increase from US$7.8 million in 2011. The increase for the full year 2012 was primarily due to changes in deferred tax assets with taxable income essentially unchanged on a year-over-year basis.

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. To make financial results comparable period by period, the Company utilized the non-GAAP financial results to better understand its historical business operations.
