Ms. Hannah Lee, Vice President & Chief Financial Officer of Global Education, stated, "We are pleased with the strong 43.6% year-over-year revenue growth in the fourth quarter, which exceeded our previously stated guidance.  During the quarter, we continued to add new learning centers in kids science and after-school tutoring in both Beijing and Shanghai.  In 2011, we will continue to execute our multi-pronged expansion plan by further penetrating the test preparation segment and by rapidly expanding in the kids-related training segment. "

Fourth Quarter 2010 Financial Performance

Fourth quarter 2010 net revenues increased 43.6% year-over-year to RMB85.0 million ($12.9 million) from RMB59.2 million in the same period of 2009. The increase was primarily due to the following:  

  • Net revenues from educational programs and services increased by 39.6% to RMB76.8 million ($11.6 million) in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to RMB55.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2009, driven primarily by 16.2% increase in test preparation course enrollments. 
     
  • Net revenues from franchise fees, study abroad consulting services and sales of books and course materials increased by 95.2% to RMB8.2 million ($1.2 million) in the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to RMB4.2 million in the prior year period, driven primarily by increased fees and commissions earned in relation to our study abroad consulting services. 

Cost of revenues, which primarily consisted of salaries and benefits, rent payments, and books and course material printing costs, increased 47.4% to RMB37.3 million ($5.7 million) in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to RMB25.3 million in the same period of 2009, primarily due to larger teaching faculty and increased costs related to the expansion of the Company's network of directly operated learning centers. As a result, cost of revenues represented 43.9% of net revenues in the fourth quarter of 2010, up from 42.7% of net revenues in the same period of 2009.

Selling and marketing expenses increased 55.4% to RMB27.5 million ($4.2 million) in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to RMB17.7 million in the same period in 2009, reflecting an increase in expenses relating to salaries and benefits (including share-based compensation of RMB1.4 million) of sales and marketing personnel and commission to sales agents. Selling and marketing expenses represented 32.4% of net revenues, an increase from 29.9% in the same period of 2009, mainly due to increased sales and marketing related headcount and higher share-based compensation expenses relating to performance-based options.

General and administrative expenses increased 88.8% to RMB15.1 million ($2.3 million) in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to RMB8.0 million in the same period of 2009 mainly due to significantly higher share-based compensation expenses of RMB3.0 million mainly related to performance-based options linked to the Company's IPO in the quarter and operational performance in 2010, increased professional fees, and performance-based incentive payments.  General and administrative expense increased as a percentage of net revenues from 13.5% in the fourth quarter of 2009 to 17.8% in the fourth quarter of 2010, as a result of the significant increase of non-cash share-based compensation expenses as described above.

Operating income decreased 38.6% to RMB5.1 million ($0.8 million) in the fourth quarter of 2010, from RMB8.3 million in the same period of 2009, mainly due to higher non-cash share-based compensation expenses of RMB4.6 million ($0.7 million) in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to RMB0.5 million in the same quarter in the previous year.  Operating margin for the fourth quarter of 2010 was 6.0%, compared to 14.0% in the same period of last year. The decrease in the Company's operating margin was again mainly due to increased share-based compensation expenses and higher professional fees.

Income tax expense in the fourth quarter of 2010 was RMB0.4 million ($0.06 million), representing an effective tax rate of 5.5%, as compared to income tax expenses of RMB1.6 million and an effective tax rate of 16.0% in the same period of 2009.  The decrease in effective tax rate was mainly due to permanent difference due to the fact that IPO related expenses which were deductible for tax purposes were presented as a reduction of paid-in-capital that did not reduce net income for accounting purposes in accordance with US GAAP.

Net income decreased 9.8% to RMB7.4 million ($1.1 million) in the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to RMB8.2 million in the same quarter of 2009.  Diluted earnings per ADS were RMB0.28 ($0.04) in the fourth quarter of 2010. The number of weighted average ADSs used to calculate basic and diluted earnings per ADS were 24.3 million and 25.1 million, respectively.  Each ADS represents four ordinary shares.  The Company had approximately 103.7 million ordinary shares, representing 25.9 million ADS, outstanding as of December 31, 2010.

Non-GAAP net income, excluding share-based compensation expenses and fair value change in contingent consideration payable attributable to Global Education, was RMB11.9 million ($1.8 million) in the fourth quarter of 2010, representing a 36.8% increase from the same period of 2009. Basic and diluted non-GAAP net income per ADS for the fourth quarter of 2010 were both RMB0.48 ($0.07).

Fiscal Year 2010 Financial Performance

Full year 2010 net revenues increased 40.4% year-over-year to RMB345.6 million ($52.4 million) from RMB246.2 million in the full year of 2009.  The increase was primarily due to the following:  

  • Net revenues from educational programs and services increased by 40.2% to RMB321.8 million ($48.8 million) in the full year of 2010 compared to RMB229.5 million in the prior year, driven primarily by 20.5% increase in test preparation course enrollments.
     
  • Net revenues from franchise fees, study abroad consulting services and sales of books and course materials increased by 41.9% to RMB23.7 million ($3.6 million) in the full year of 2010, compared to RMB16.7 million in the prior year period, driven primarily by increased fees and commissions earned in relation to our study abroad consulting services and increased franchise fees. 

Cost of revenues, which primarily consisted of salaries and benefits, rent payments, and books and course material printing costs, increased 49.6% to RMB152.6 million ($23.1 million) in the full year 2010 compared to RMB102.0 million in the full year 2009, primarily due to larger teaching faculty and increased rental expenses related to the expansion of the Company's network of directly operated learning centers, and costs associated with summer camps. As a result, cost of revenues represented 44.2% of net revenues in the full year 2010, up from 41.4% of net revenues in the full year 2009.

Selling and marketing expenses increased 42.7% to RMB92.2 million ($14.0 million) in the full year 2010 compared to RMB64.6 million in the prior year, primarily due to increased expenses relating to salaries and benefits (including share-based compensation of RMB2.6 million ($0.4 million)) of sales and marketing personnel, commissions to sales agents, and related rental expenses.  Selling and marketing expenses represented 26.7% of net revenues, a slight increase from 26.2% in the full year of 2009.

General and administrative expenses in the full year 2010 increased 39.3% to RMB40.4 million ($6.1 million), compared to RMB29.0 million in the full year 2009, mainly due to significantly higher share-based compensation expenses of RMB 5.0 million ($0.8 million), increased professional fees, and performance-based incentive payments. As a percentage of the net revenues, general and administrative expenses remained at a stable level at 11.7 % in the full year 2010 compared to 11.8% in the full year 2009.

Operating income increased 18.9% to RMB60.3 million ($9.1 million) for the full year of 2010, from RMB50.7 million for the full year of 2009, due to combination of the above aforementioned factors.  Operating margin for the full year of 2010 was 17.4%, compared to 20.6% for the full year 2009. This operating margin decrease was mainly due to the increased cost of revenues, non-cash share-based compensation expenses, and higher professional fees.

Income tax expenses for the full year 2010 were RMB7.8 million ($1.2 million), representing an effective tax rate of 12.1%, as compared to income tax expenses of RMB4.8 million and an effective tax rate of 7.9% in the year of 2009. The increase in the effective tax rate primarily related to expiration of tax-exemption status in 2009 where a wholly-owned subsidiary in China starts to subject to 7.5% income tax rate from 2010 to 2012.

Net income in the full year of 2010 increased 1.8% to RMB56.6 million ($8.6 million), compared to RMB55.6 million in the prior year. Diluted earnings per ADS were RMB2.80 ($0.42) for the full year of 2010. The Company had approximately 20.3 million weighted average diluted ADSs outstanding during the full year 2010.

Non-GAAP net income, excluding share-based compensation expenses and fair value change in contingent consideration payable attributable to Global Education, was RMB68.8 million ($10.4 million) in the full year 2010, representing a 20.7% increase from full year 2009. Basic and diluted non-GAAP net income per ADS were RMB3.48 ($0.53) and RMB3.40 ($0.52), respectively.

As of December 31, 2010, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of RMB807.6 million ($122.4 million), compared to RMB103.8 million as of December 31, 2009. 

Cash flows provided by operating activities for the full year 2010 were approximately RMB99.5 million ($15.1 million) compared to RMB 84.2 million for the full year 2009. The increase was due to the continued strength of the Company's operating results. 

Deferred revenues increased to RMB88.7 million ($13.4 million) as of December 31, 2010, from RMB65.8 million as at December 31, 2009. This increase was mainly due to continued business growth.

Financial Outlook for First Quarter of 2011

The Company estimates that its net revenues for the first quarter of 2011 will be in the range of RMB71.0 million ($10.8 million) to RMB76.0 million ($11.5 million), an increase of approximately 14.5% to 22.5% over the same quarter in the previous year.

This forecast reflects the Company's current and preliminary view, which is subject to change.

"As we look at our overall performance in 2011, our focus on further penetrating the test preparation segment remains a high priority. We are also focused on rolling out new learning centers in kids science and after-school tutoring at an accelerated rate, particularly in the first half of the year. While this effort will likely result in higher operating expenses compared to our historic average in the coming quarters, we believe these areas of learning will be strong contributors to overall revenue and profit growth in the ensuing years to come," concluded Mr. Zhang, founder and Chief Executive Officer.

About Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement Global Education's unaudited consolidated financial results presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), the Company uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures: net income attributable to Global Education excluding share-based compensation expenses and fair value change in contingent consideration, 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 attributable to the Company excluding share-based compensation expenses and fair value change in contingent consideration payable. 

Global Education believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful for its management and investors to assess and analyze the Company's core operating results as share-based compensation expense and fair value change in contingent consideration payable is not directly attributable to the underlying performance of the Company's business operations and may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to its historical performance and liquidity. A limitation of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that these non-GAAP measures exclude the share-based compensation charge and fair value change in contingent consideration payable that have been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in Global Education's business.

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. The Company is only providing these non-GAAP performance measures in the press release, and will not incorporate into GAAP financial statements. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned "Reconciliation of Unaudited non-GAAP measures to the Most comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this press release.
