(1) New Oriental provides net income attributable to New Oriental, operating income, and net income per ADS attributable to New Oriental on a non-GAAP basis that excludes share-based compensation expenses to provide supplemental information regarding its operating performance. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the section captioned "About Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and the tables captioned "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures to the Most Comparable GAAP Measures" set forth at the end of this release.


(2) The Non-GAAP adjusted net income per share and per ADS are computed using Non-GAAP adjusted net income and the same number of shares and ADSs used in GAAP basic and diluted EPS calculation.

Michael Yu, New Oriental's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased to have recorded continued improvement in profitability during the quarter, with net income growing by 50.2% year-over-year to approximately US$42.1 million and operating income increasing by 30.5% year-over-year to approximately US$30.7 million. We also saw continued strong margin expansion during this fiscal quarter, with operating margin increasing by 120 basis points to 12.0% from 10.8% and net margin increasing by 370 basis points to 16.5% from 12.8%. As we continued to benefit from the execution of our "Harvest the Market" strategy, during the first nine months of fiscal year 2014 our gross margin increased by 60 basis points to 60.3% from 59.7%, operating margin increased by 600 basis points to 19.6% from 13.6%, and net margin increased by 530 basis points to 20.3% from 15.0%. We are on track to achieve our full year operating margin target of 16% to 17% for this 2014 fiscal year."

Mr. Yu continued, "While we achieved very strong results on the bottom line during the quarter, we maintained a steady revenue growth rate of 16.4% year-over-year. This lower-than-forecasted revenue growth rate reflects a subdued growth in enrollments of 4.5% to approximately 602,900. Three factors in particular influenced enrollment growth during the quarter. First, we ended the third fiscal quarter with 700 schools and learning centers, 33 fewer than the year-ago period. We also opened new learning centers at a slower pace than expected during the quarter, with 5 new learning centers opened and 16 existing centers closed. In the quarters ahead, we plan to accelerate the pace of opening new learning centers, with a focus on opening new learning centers in fast growing, high profit margin cities. Second, our adult English and domestic college English test preparation business lines continued to decline, with revenues decreasing by 3.5% and 2.8%, respectively, year-on-year. Third, we experienced slower growth in our POP Kids programs targeting kids aged 6 to 12. Enrollments in these programs declined by approximately 12.2% year-over-year to approximately 163,400 in the third quarter. It is important to note that we are in the midst of launching new POP Kids programs in the third and fourth fiscal quarters and enrollments are typically slower during these transition periods. We expect POP Kids enrollments to pick up in the summer quarter once the new programs are launched and we increase promotional efforts."

Louis T. Hsieh, New Oriental's President and Chief Financial Officer, commented, "Although the program transition currently underway in our POP Kids offering impacted growth in this segment during the quarter, we are encouraged that our overseas study business and middle and high school U-Can business continued to perform well. Our overseas test preparation and overseas study consulting businesses together recorded year-over-year gross revenue growth of approximately 22.2% in the quarter, to approximately US$92.8 million, while our U-Can grade 7 to 12 all-subjects after-school tutoring business recorded year-over-year gross revenue growth of about 21.0% to approximately US$77.6 million."

Updates on Online Education Strategy

In the third fiscal quarter, the Company continued to make progress on executing its strategy to grow and solidify its leadership position in the large and fast-growing online education market in China. This strategy aims to take full advantage of New Oriental's premium brand position and unrivalled resources in terms of high-quality teaching content, and consists of three main pillars.

1. Investment in Koolearn.com: The Company's online education website, Koolearn.com, now hosts over 2,000 online courses, both pre-recorded and live interactive sessions, for teenagers and adults. Offerings include language training, overseas and domestic test preparation and vocational education. As of February 28, 2014, Koolearn.com had recorded a cumulative total of approximately 9 million registered users.

New Oriental continues to invest in the development of new offerings for Koolearn.com that utilize the Company's existing resources to build new revenue streams. In November 2013, Koolearn.com launched a new training program featuring live broadcasts of a series of New Oriental's most popular offline test preparation classes. The new program proved very popular with learners, with over 167,100 registrations in the third fiscal quarter and the first 7 weeks of the fourth fiscal quarter. In addition to leveraging the Company's existing content, this program also enables the Company to improve retention of top-performing teachers.

Koolearn.com is also investing in migrating its offerings from PC-based platforms to mobile and tablets. The "DONUT" game-based mobile learning applications for children aged 2 to 8 have achieved about 7.5 million downloads since its launch in September 2012.

2. Development of O2O Two-way Learning Platform: New Oriental is investing in standardizing and digitalizing its education content and user data in order to establish a database of learning modules for internet based self-learning, practice and assessment. New Oriental is now deploying this digitized content to reshape its traditional offline classroom-teaching offerings and enhance users' learning experience by offering online learning components that complement and support students' offline learning activities.

A pilot program currently being offered to students taking U-Can middle and high school tutoring programs in Beijing allows students to continue their self-learning, practice and assessment online after class. The pilot platform is designed to push customized content to students and recommend additional offline courses based on their online study records and performance. The platform also facilitates interaction between students, teachers, and parents across multiple devices like smartphones, tablets, and PCs.

The Company believes that this new learning platform will improve learning productivity, increase customer stickiness, and create new revenue streams through the provision of value-added learning services.

3. Partnerships with Leading Internet Companies: New Oriental intends to develop partnerships focused on online education with some of the largest players in China's internet market. These partnerships aim to leverage New Oriental's industry-leading brand, leading content and experience and the partner companies' cutting-edge technologies and distribution channels to deliver more innovative online education products throughout China.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement New Oriental's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, New Oriental uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC: net income excluding share-based compensation expenses, operating income excluding share-based compensation expenses, operating costs and expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, general and administrative expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, operating margin excluding share-based compensation expenses, and basic and diluted net income per ADS and per share excluding 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 tables captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this release.

New Oriental believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding share-based compensation expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. New Oriental believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to 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 New Oriental's historical performance and liquidity. New Oriental computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter. New Oriental 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 these non-GAAP measures is that they exclude share-based compensation charge that has been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in our 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.
