Explanation of the Company’s non-GAAP financial measures and related reconciliations to GAAP financial measures are included in the accompanying “Non-GAAP Disclosure” and “Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Results of Operations Measures to the Nearest Comparable GAAP Measures.”

Mr. Dewen Chen, Changyou’s Co-CEO, commented, “We are pleased with the strong user traction on two of our newly-launched mobile games, TLBB 3D and Qin Shi Ming Yue 2. We believe this demonstrates our capabilities in mobile game publishing as well as the creative talents of our mobile R&D team. For our MMO business, user engagement remained resilient during the quarter, as we introduced new innovative game play and added social interactions and reduced the level of difficulty in our flagship TLBB game.”

“We have built our business around a user-first philosophy, which enabled us to become one of China’s leading game companies, and pushed us to look ahead to see what our users want next. We will continue to seize the opportunities we see on mobile internet and continue our focus on building an integrated platform with games and applications that meet the needs of a broad spectrum of users. We believe this is the right strategy to maximize our long-term growth and remain competitive in the internet sector for years to come.”

Ms. Rucia Ren, Changyou’s acting CFO, said, “We are pleased with the increase from the previous quarter in the average monthly active accounts for our online game business, driven by a more engaging and balanced in-game environment will attract all levels of players in the long run and effectively extend TLBB’s lifespan, despite having a short-term impact on revenues. We are encouraged by the recent performance of our newly launched mobile games, and we will keep focusing on perfecting our games to meet the evolving demands of users.

Third Quarter 2014 Operational Results

The Company’s operational results for the third quarter of 2014 were as follows:

  • Total average monthly active accounts of the Company’s games[3] were 29 million, an increase of 21% quarter-over-quarter and a decrease of 6% year-over-year. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly due to an increase in active accounts of TLBB as well as the launch of new games, including Fantasy Frontier Online. The increase in active accounts was in part offset by a decline in active accounts of web games, as both Wartune and DDTank have entered into a relatively mature phase in China. The year-over-year decrease was mainly due to a decline in active accounts of Wartune and DDTank.
  • Total average monthly active accounts of the Company’s platform channels[4] were 275 million, an increase of 9% quarter-over-quarter and 178% year-over-year. The quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year increases were mainly due to our continuous efforts to improve user experience as well as the launch and acquisition of new PC and mobile products during the course of the year.

[3] Calculated as the simple average of the sum of monthly active accounts of all of the MMO games, web games and mobile games operated by the Company and its wholly-owned and/or majority-owned subsidiaries during the quarter. Monthly active accounts for games are defined as game accounts that were logged in at least once during the month.

[4] Calculated as the simple average of the sum of the monthly unique visitors to the Company’s web game operation platform, the 17173 website and 17173’s non-game products, plus the monthly logged-in accounts of non-game applications during the quarter. The monthly logged-in accounts of MoboTap Inc., which was acquired during the third quarter of 2014, are included in the calculations for the third quarter of 2014.

Third Quarter 2014 Unaudited Financial Results

Revenues

Total revenues for the third quarter of 2014 increased 2% quarter-over-quarter and decreased 1% year-over-year to US$180.8 million, and were below the Company’s guidance by US$5.2 million.

Online game revenues decreased 2% quarter-over-quarter and 7% year-over-year to US$150.3 million, and were below the Company’s guidance by US$7.7 million. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly due to players spending less money in TLBB after the Company made a strategic decision to reduce the level of difficulty of the game. The year-over-year decrease was mainly due to decreased revenues from Wartune and DDTank, as both games have now entered into a relatively mature phase in China, as well as from TLBB, following the strategic decision to reduce the game’s difficulty.

Online advertising revenues increased 13% quarter-over-quarter and 2% year-over-year to US$16.7 million, and were in line with the Company’s guidance. The quarter-over-quarter increases were mainly due to the seasonal pickup typical for advertising in China and the increase in the utilization rate of advertising on the 17173 website as a result of an improved advertising sales function.

Internet value-added services (“IVAS”) revenues, which consist of revenues generated from the operation of web games on the Company’s websites and software applications, increased 52% quarter-over-quarter and 550% year-over-year to US$7.4 million. The quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year increases were mainly due to increased revenues from web games launched on the Company’s web game platform in the third quarter of 2014, and incremental revenues from the acquisition of new PC and mobile products.

Other revenues, which consist of cinema advertising revenues, increased 48% quarter-over-quarter and 59% year-over-year to US$6.4 million. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly due to the seasonal pickup typical for advertising in China. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to an upgrade in advertising resources as well as improvements in the advertising sales function.

Gross profit

Both gross profit and non-GAAP gross profit decreased 3% quarter-over-quarter and 15% year-over-year to US$130.5 million. Both gross margin and non-GAAP gross margin were 72%, compared with 76% in the second quarter of 2014 and 84% in the third quarter of 2013.

Both gross profit and non-GAAP gross profit of the online games business decreased 6% quarter-over-quarter and 17% year-over-year to US$116.4 million. Both gross margin and non-GAAP gross margin of the online games business were 77%, compared with 80% in the second quarter of 2014 and 87% in the third quarter of 2013. The quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year decreases in gross margin were mainly due to additional costs of licensed MMO and mobile games that were launched in the third quarter of 2014.

Both gross profit and non-GAAP gross profit of the online advertising business increased 12% quarter-over-quarter and decreased 6% year-over-year to US$12.4 million. Both gross margin and non-GAAP gross margin of the online advertising business was 74%, compared with 75% in the second quarter of 2014 and 80% in the third quarter of 2013. The year-over-year decrease in gross margin was primarily due to increase in bandwidth costs related to video content on 17173.com, as well as increased salary and benefits expense.

Both gross profit and non-GAAP gross profit for the IVAS business were US$0.7 million. This compares with gross loss and non-GAAP gross loss for the IVAS business of US$0.4 million in the second quarter of 2014, and gross profit and non-GAAP gross profit of US$0.7 million in the third quarter of 2013.

Both gross profit and non-GAAP gross profit of other business were US$1.0 million. This compares with gross loss and non-GAAP gross loss of US$0.1 million in the second quarter of 2014 and US$0.7 million in the third quarter of 2013.

Operating expenses

Total operating expenses were US$133.0 million, a decrease of 6% quarter-over-quarter and an increase of 86% year-over-year.

Product development expenses were US$53.0 million, an increase of 8% quarter-over-quarter and 75% year-over-year. The quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year increases were primarily due to headcount and personnel-related expense increases for mobile-related investments and games development, higher licensing fees associated with new games to be launched, as well as amortization expense with respect to MoboTap Inc.(“MoboTap”), which was acquired on July 31, 2014.

Sales and marketing expenses were US$52.9 million, a decrease of 24% quarter-over-quarter and an increase of 88% year-over-year. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly because the Company streamlined its marketing and distribution channels for mobile applications in the third quarter of 2014. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to higher advertising costs for the promotion of mobile applications as part of the Company’s initiative to develop its platform business and an increase in salary and benefits expense in the third quarter of 2014.

General and administrative expenses were US$27.1 million, an increase of 19% quarter-over-quarter and 109% year-over-year. The quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year increases were mainly due to an increase in salary and benefits expense in the third quarter of 2014.

Operating loss

Operating loss was US$2.6 million. This compares with operating loss of US$7.0 million in the second quarter of 2014 and operating profit of US$81.5 million in the third quarter of 2013.

Non-GAAP operating loss was US$2.0 million. This compares with non-GAAP operating loss of US$6.6 million in the second quarter of 2014 and non-GAAP operating profit of US$81.8 million in the third quarter of 2013.

Income tax expense

In December 2013, the Company’s main operating entity in China was approved as a “2013 and 2014 Key National Software Enterprise,” and as a result is subject to a preferential corporate income tax rate of 10% for the tax years 2013 and 2014.

The Company recorded income tax expense of US$0.3 million in the third quarter of 2014. This compares with an income tax benefit of US$2.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 and income tax expense of US$13.6 million in the third quarter of 2013.

Net income

Net income was US$1.5 million. This compares with net income of US$1.5 million in the second quarter of 2014 and net income of US$72.8 million in the third quarter of 2013.

Non-GAAP net income was US$2.0 million. This compares with non-GAAP net income of US$2.0 million in the second quarter of 2014 and net income of US$73.2 million in the third quarter of 2013.

Net loss attributable to non-controlling interests

Net loss attributable to non-controlling interests and non-GAAP net loss attributable to non-controlling interests was US$1.9 million in the third quarter of 2014, compared with US$0.4 million in the second quarter of 2014. Non-controlling interests represent the non-controlling interests in the RaidCall business and MoboTap. The results of MoboTap were consolidated into Changyou’s financial statements commencing August 1, 2014, upon completion of the acquisition of MoboTap.

Net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited

Other Business Developments

Launched New Mobile Game Qin Shi Ming Yue 2

On September 15, 2014, Changyou launched closed beta testing of its co-developed mobile 3D role playing game Qin Shi Ming Yue 2. Adapted from the comic novel of the same name, the game has a storyline that revolves around tales and main characters from the original novel. Designed on the Unity 3D engine and equipped with varied and creative gameplay, Qin Shi Ming Yue 2 provides players with a unique gaming experience. The game is expected to be launched in November, 2014.

Launched New Mobile Game Tian Long Ba Bu 3D

On October 29, 2014, Changyou launched its in-house mobile 3D martial arts MMORPG Tian Long Ba Bu 3D. Adapted from Louis Cha’s novel of the same name, the game reenacts the story of the original novel and blends in some of the classic PC game elements, including its gameplay, social elements, and multiple gaming systems, enabling players to enjoy exciting battles and interesting real-time interaction with other players.

Update on Changyou’s Share Repurchase Program

On July 27, 2013, Changyou’s Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program of up to US$100 million of the outstanding ADSs of Changyou over a two-year period from July 27, 2013 to July 26, 2015.

As of September 30, 2014, Changyou had repurchased 590,500 Changyou ADSs under the share repurchase program at an aggregate cost of US$17.3 million. No shares were repurchased during the third quarter of 2014.

Business Outlook

For the fourth quarter of 2014, Changyou expects total revenues to be between US$188.0 million and US$198.0 million, including online game revenues of US$155.0 million to US$165.0 million and online advertising revenues of US$20.0 million to US$21.0 million.

Guidance on Non-GAAP net income, Non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per ADS, and share-based -compensation expense for the fourth quarter of 2014 will not be provided at this time, as there are uncertainties as to the expected costs and expenses associated with mobile games launched, to be launched, and currently in development.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

To supplement the unaudited consolidated financial information prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”), Changyou’s management uses non-GAAP measures of gross profit, operating profit, net income, net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited and diluted net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited per ADS, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude the compensation cost of share-based awards granted, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions. These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results.

Changyou’s management believes that excluding share-based compensation expense, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for itself and investors. Further, the amount of share-based compensation expense, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions cannot be anticipated by management, and these expenses are not built into the Company’s annual budgets and quarterly forecasts, which generally will be the basis for information Changyou provides to analysts and investors as guidance for future operating performance. As share-based compensation expense, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions does not involve subsequent cash outflow, Changyou does not factor this in when evaluating and approving expenditures or when determining the allocation of its resources to its business operations. As a result, in general, the monthly financial results for internal reporting and any performance measure for commissions and bonuses are based on non-GAAP financial measures that exclude share-based compensation expense, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions.

The non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance investors’ overall understanding of Changyou’s current financial performance and prospects for the future. A limitation of using non-GAAP gross profit, operating profit, net income, net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited and diluted net income attributable to Changyou.com Limited per ADS, excluding share-based compensation expense, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions, is that the share-based compensation charge has been and will continue to be a significant recurring expense in the Company’s business for the foreseeable future, and goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards and income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions may recur in the future. In order to mitigate these limitations the Company has provided specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying tables include details on the reconciliation between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to the non-GAAP financial measures the Company has presented.

Notes to Financial Information

Financial information in this press release other than the information indicated as being non-GAAP is derived from Changyou’s unaudited financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
