"The second quarter was an outstanding quarter for our business. Net revenues increased by 35.1% year-over-year to US$92.0 million, exceeding the top-end of our guidance by US$1.5 million. Revenue growth was supported by a 24.8% increase in enrollments. Our small class business in markets other than Beijing and Shanghai continued to perform well, and accounted for 35% of small class revenues compared to 22% during the same period last year. In addition, our Shanghai operation maintained its solid revenue growth trajectory on the back of continued strong enrollment increases in the summer semester," said TAL's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Bangxin Zhang.

"Given the improved learning center utilization, we took the opportunity to more aggressively ramp up our tutoring network capacity in the quarter. We added a net of nine learning centers, bringing the total to 264 centers, as compared to 255 at the end of the first fiscal quarter. In terms of classroom capacity, we signed leases for a net 247 additional classrooms in the quarter for our small class business, bringing us to a net 351 additional classrooms for the first half of the year. For the remainder of this fiscal year, we plan to continue to add new learning centers as well as classrooms to existing learning centers, but at a slower pace than in the first half of the year," Mr. Zhang said.

Mr. Joseph Kauffman, Chief Financial Officer, continued, "In addition to strong top line results, we had better-than-expected net income growth of 45.4% year-on-year in the second quarter. In coming quarters, we expect to incur higher year-on-year growth in operational costs and expenses as we will bear the impact of past quarters' center and classroom additions as well as invest further in center capacity and the human capital needed to support our current operations and new businesses. In our approach to network expansion, we will continue to be disciplined, employing a combination of scaling up existing facilities and investing in new centers."

Financial Results for the Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 2014

Net Revenues

In the second quarter of fiscal year 2014, TAL reported net revenues of US$92.0 million, representing a 35.1% increase from US$68.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. The increase was mainly driven by an increased number of total student enrollments combined with increased average selling prices (ASPs). Total student enrollments increased by 24.8% to approximately 308,490 from approximately 247,100 in the same period one year ago. The increase in total student enrollments was driven primarily by increases of enrollments in the small class offerings. ASP increased by 8.2% from US$275 in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013 to US$298 in the same quarter of fiscal year 2014. The growth in ASP was mainly driven by the hourly rate increases of a portion of the small class course offerings and the foreign exchange rate fluctuation.

Operating Costs and Expenses

Operating costs and expenses were US$67.6 million, a 31.6% increase from US$51.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. Non-GAAP operating costs and expenses, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, were US$65.8 million, a 33.5% increase from US$49.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Cost of revenues increased by 35.0% to US$43.0 million, from US$31.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. The increase in cost of revenues was mainly due to an increase in teacher compensation, an increase in rental costs and other staff costs associated primarily with an expansion of learning center capacity, increases in wages and teacher fees and settlement of a third-party claim. Non-GAAP cost of revenues, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 35.1% to US$43.0 million, from US$31.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Selling and marketing expenses increased by 20.9% to US$8.5 million, from US$7.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. Non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 26.1% to US$8.2 million, from US$6.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. The increase of selling and marketing expenses in the second quarter of fiscal year 2014 was primarily a result of an increase in compensation to sales and marketing staff to support a greater number of programs and service offerings.

General and administrative expenses increased by 28.8% to US$16.1 million, from US$12.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. The increase in general and administrative expenses was mainly due to an increase in compensation to our general and administrative personnel to support a greater number of programs and service offerings and depreciation expenses for Beijing office space. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 33.0% to US$14.6 million, from US$11.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Total share-based compensation expenses allocated to the related operating costs and expenses decreased by 13.0% to US$1.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2014, from US$2.1 million in the same period of fiscal year 2013.

Gross Profit                                                       

Gross profit increased by 35.2% to US$49.0 million, from US$36.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Income from Operations

Income from operations increased by 46.6% to US$24.4 million, from US$16.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. Non-GAAP income from operations, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 40.0% to US$26.2 million, from US$18.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Other Income / (Expense)

Other expense was US$0.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2014, compared to other income of US$0.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. Other expense in this quarter was mainly due to the donation of US$0.2 million to support victims of the Ya'an earthquake.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense was US$3.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2014, as compared to US$2.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Net Income Attributable to TAL Education Group

Net income attributable to TAL increased by 45.4% to US$23.3 million, from US$16.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. Non-GAAP net income attributable to TAL, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 38.7% to US$25.1 million, from US$18.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Basic and Diluted Net Income per ADS

Basic and diluted net income per ADS were US$0.30 and US$0.29, respectively, in the second quarter of fiscal year 2014. Non-GAAP basic and Non-GAAP diluted net income per ADS, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, were US$0.32 and US$0.31, respectively.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures for the second quarter of fiscal year 2014 were US$3.3 million, representing an increase of US$1.6 million from US$1.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. The increase was mainly from the purchase of equipment, including servers, computers, and other hardware used in our teaching facilities, to better support the Company's operation.

Cash, Cash Equivalents, and Term Deposits

As of August 31, 2013, the Company had US$267.2 million of cash and cash equivalents and US$27.0 million of term deposits, as compared to US$185.1 million of cash and cash equivalents and US$24.1 million of term deposits as of February 28, 2013.

Deferred Revenue

As of August 31, 2013, the Company's deferred revenue balance was US$143.7 million as compared to US$103.3 million as of August 31, 2012, representing an increase of 39.0% versus the same period of the previous year.

Business Outlook

Based on the Company's current estimates, total net revenues for the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 are expected to be between US$69.5 million and US$71.0 million, representing an increase of 42% to 45% on a year-over-year basis.

These estimates reflect the Company's current expectation, which is subject to change.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating its business, TAL considers and uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC as supplemental metrics to review and assess its operating performance: non-GAAP operating costs and expenses, non-GAAP cost of revenues, non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income attributable to TAL, non-GAAP basic and non-GAAP diluted net income per ADS. To present each of these non-GAAP measures, the Company excludes share-based compensation expenses. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this release.

TAL believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding share-based expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. TAL believes that both management and investors benefit from these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing its performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to TAL's historical performance and liquidity. TAL computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter and from period to period. TAL believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision making. A limitation of using non-GAAP measures is that these non-GAAP measures exclude share-based compensation charges that have been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in the Company's business. Management compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying tables have more details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.

P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics.

"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
The 3rd International @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most profound change in personal and enterprise IT since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago. All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
"There is a natural synchronization between the business models, the IoT is there to support ,” explained Brendan O'Brien, Co-founder and Chief Architect of Aria Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at the 15th International Cloud Expo®, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
SYS-CON Events announced today that Gridstore™, the leader in hyper-converged infrastructure purpose-built to optimize Microsoft workloads, will exhibit at SYS-CON's 16th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY. Gridstore™ is the leader in hyper-converged infrastructure purpose-built for Microsoft workloads and designed to accelerate applications in virtualized environments. Gridstore’s hyper-converged infrastructure is the industry’s first all flash version of HyperConverged Appliances that include both compute and storag...
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
