Second Quarter 2014 Unaudited Financial Results

Total revenues for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014 were RMB457.5 million (US$73.8 million), an increase of 13.1% from RMB404.4 million for the same quarter in 2013.

Online recruitment services revenues for the second quarter of 2014 were RMB312.0 million (US$50.3 million), representing a 15.8% increase from RMB269.5 million for the same quarter of the prior year. The growth was principally due to an increase in the number of unique employers using online recruitment services, which was partially offset by a decrease in average revenue per unique employer and the impact of the VAT policy change effective June 1, 2014 (as described below in “Other Company News”). Unique employers increased 21.3% to 280,203 in the second quarter of 2014 compared with 231,011 in the same quarter of the prior year driven by strengthened customer acquisition efforts and increased usage of online recruitment services by employers. However, average revenue per unique employer decreased 4.6% in the second quarter of 2014 as compared with the same quarter in 2013 primarily due to the addition of new customers who generally purchase introductory, lower priced services and the effect of the VAT policy change on online recruitment services revenues.

Print advertising revenues for the second quarter of 2014 decreased 78.8% to RMB2.3 million (US$0.4 million) compared with RMB11.0 million for the same quarter in 2013 primarily due to the ongoing business transition away from print advertising services. The estimated number of print advertising pages generated in the second quarter of 2014 was 21 pages compared with 355 pages in the same quarter in 2013. The Company operates a print publication in the city of Xian as of June 30, 2014 compared with five cities as of June 30, 2013.

Other human resource related revenues for the second quarter of 2014 increased 15.6% to RMB143.2 million (US$23.1 million) from RMB123.8 million in the same quarter of 2013 primarily due to growth and usage of business process outsourcing and training services.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2014 increased 13.9% to RMB325.8 million (US$52.5 million) from RMB286.0 million for the same quarter of the prior year. Gross margin, which is gross profit as a percentage of net revenues, increased to 73.9% in the second quarter of 2014 compared with 73.7% in the same quarter in 2013.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2014 increased 26.7% to RMB203.4 million (US$32.8 million) from RMB160.6 million for the same quarter of 2013. Sales and marketing expenses for the second quarter of 2014 increased 28.3% to RMB142.6 million (US$23.0 million) from RMB111.1 million for the same quarter of the prior year primarily due to additional sales headcount, higher employee compensation expenses and greater advertising expenditures. General and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2014 increased 23.0% to RMB60.8 million (US$9.8 million) from RMB49.4 million in the second quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher share-based compensation expense and professional service fees as well as greater office, rental and depreciation expenses.

Income from operations for the second quarter of 2014 decreased 2.4% to RMB122.4 million (US$19.7 million) from RMB125.5 million for the same quarter of the prior year. Operating margin, which is income from operations as a percentage of net revenues, was 27.8% in the second quarter of 2014 compared with 32.3% in the same quarter of 2013. Excluding share-based compensation expense, operating margin would be 31.9% in the second quarter of 2014 compared with 36.2% in the same quarter of 2013.

In April 2014, the Company completed an offering of US$172.5 million in convertible senior notes. In connection with this offering, US$50 million of the net proceeds received by the Company was used to enter into zero-strike call option transactions, which were executed in the second quarter. As a result, in the second quarter of 2014, the Company recognized a mark-to-market loss of RMB28.9 million (US$4.7 million) associated with a change in fair value of convertible notes and of RMB24.9 million (US$4.0 million) associated with a change in fair value of zero-strike call options.

Other income in the second quarter of 2014 included local government financial subsidies of RMB32.6 million (US$5.3 million). The effective tax rate in the second quarter of 2014 increased to 36.0% compared with 17.5% in the second quarter of 2013 as a result of non-tax deductible items, primarily the convertible notes issuance costs and the changes in fair value of convertible notes and zero-strike call options, which comprised a large portion of the income before income tax base. The effective tax rate on non-GAAP results in the second quarter of 2014 was 15.0% compared with 15.6% in the second quarter of 2013.

Net income for the second quarter of 2014 was RMB52.0 million (US$8.4 million) compared with RMB119.2 million for the same quarter in 2013. Fully diluted earnings per common share for the second quarter of 2014 were RMB0.86 (US$0.14) compared with RMB1.99 for the same quarter in 2013. Fully diluted earnings per ADS for the second quarter of 2014 were RMB1.72 (US$0.28) compared with RMB3.98 in the second quarter of 2013.

In the second quarter of 2014, total share-based compensation expense was RMB18.3 million (US$3.0 million) compared with RMB14.8 million in the second quarter of 2013. The Company also recognized a gain from foreign currency translation of RMB5.3 million (US$0.9 million) in the second quarter of 2014 compared with a loss of RMB2.4 million in the second quarter of 2013.

Excluding share-based compensation expense, gain/loss from foreign currency translation, convertible senior notes issuance costs, change in fair value of convertible notes and change in fair value of zero-strike call options, as well as the related tax effect of these items, non-GAAP adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2014 increased 21.5% to RMB165.8 million (US$26.7 million) compared with RMB136.4 million for the second quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP adjusted fully diluted earnings per common share were RMB2.75 (US$0.44) in the second quarter of 2014 compared with RMB2.28 in the second quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP adjusted fully diluted earnings per ADS in the second quarter of 2014 were RMB5.50 (US$0.89) compared with RMB4.56 in the second quarter of 2013.

Business Outlook

Based on current market conditions and factoring in a full-quarter effect of the VAT policy change, the Company’s total revenues target for the third quarter of 2014 is in the estimated range of RMB455 million to RMB470 million (US$73.3 million to US$75.8 million). Excluding share-based compensation expense, any gain or loss from foreign currency translation, and any mark-to-market gain or loss associated with a change in fair value of convertible notes, as well as the related tax effect of these items, the Company’s non-GAAP fully diluted earnings target for the third quarter of 2014 is in the estimated range of RMB2.25 to RMB2.45 (US$0.36 to US$0.39) per common share. The Company expects total share-based compensation expense in the third quarter of 2014 to be in the estimated range of RMB21 million to RMB22 million (US$3.4 million to US$3.5 million).

Other Company News

Effective June 1, 2014, the Company’s PRC subsidiaries ceased paying a 3% business tax on gross revenues from value-added telecommunication services in China and instead became subject to a VAT of 6%, reflected directly at the net revenues level, while being permitted to offset input VAT supported by valid VAT invoices received from vendors against the VAT liability. Due to this policy change, the Company’s revenues, principally its online recruitment services revenues, have been reduced, which affects the comparability of revenue figures before and after June 1, 2014.

In June 2014, the Company’s shareholders approved an increase to a share repurchase program originally authorized in September 2008 from US$25 million to US$75 million.

Effective August 8, 2014, the Company changed the ratio of its ADS to common share from one (1) ADS to two (2) common shares to one (1) ADS to one (1) common share. The presentation of per ADS data contained in this press release does not reflect this ratio change.

Currency Convenience Translation

For the convenience of readers, certain Renminbi amounts have been translated into U.S. dollars at the rate of RMB6.2036 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate on June 30, 2014 in New York for cable transfers of Renminbi as set forth in the H.10 weekly statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), 51job uses non-GAAP financial measures of income before income tax expense, income tax expense, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share and adjusted earnings per ADS, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude share-based compensation expense, gain/loss from foreign currency translation, convertible senior notes issuance costs, change in fair value of convertible notes and change in fair value of zero-strike call options, as well as the related tax effect of these items. The Company believes excluding share-based compensation expense and its related tax effect from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for its management and investors to assess and analyze the Company’s core operating results as such expense is not directly attributable to the underlying performance of the Company’s business operations and do not impact its cash earnings. The Company believes excluding gain/loss from foreign currency translation and its related tax effect from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for its management and investors as such translation loss is not indicative of the Company’s core business operations and will not result in cash settlement nor impact the Company’s cash earnings. The Company believes excluding convertible senior notes issuance costs and its related tax effect from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for its management and investors as such costs are one-time, non-recurring and not attributable to the underlying performance of the Company’s business. The Company believes excluding change in fair value of convertible notes and its related tax effect from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for its management and investors as such change is not indicative of the Company’s core business operations and will not result in cash settlement nor impact the Company’s cash earnings. The Company believes excluding change in fair value of zero-strike call options and its related tax effect from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for its management and investors as such change is not indicative of the Company’s core business operations and will not result in cash settlement nor impact the Company’s cash earnings. 51job also believes these non-GAAP financial measures excluding share-based compensation expense, gain/loss from foreign currency translation, convertible senior notes issuance costs, change in fair value of convertible notes and change in fair value of zero-strike call options, as well as the related tax effect of these items, are important in helping investors to understand the Company’s current financial performance and future prospects and to compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis. The presentation of these additional measures should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results or as being comparable to results reported or forecasted by other companies. The non-GAAP measures have been reconciled to GAAP measures in the attached financial statements.
