(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 report healthy top line growth of 20.0% and sustained strong profit growth of 52.2% for the fourth fiscal quarter, as we ended our fiscal year 2014 on a strong note. During this past fiscal year, we achieved major milestones on both the top and bottom lines, with revenues exceeding US$1 billion to US$1.139 billion and net profit exceeding US$200 million to US$215.7 million for the first time. We are particularly encouraged that our 'Harvest the Market' strategy has driven a significant improvement in profitability during the year. Gross margin for fiscal year 2014 increased by 30 basis points to 60.3% from 60.0% in fiscal year 2013, operating margin increased by 450 basis points to 17.3% from 12.8%, and net margin increased by a very impressive 470 basis points to 18.9% from 14.2%."

Mr. Yu continued, "Starting in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014, we once again started to expand our network by adding a net of three learning centers, giving us a total of 703 schools and learning centers as of the end of fiscal year 2014. We also added more than 9,300 square meters of additional classroom area by expanding 10 of our existing learning centers. Moving into fiscal year 2015, we plan to extend our penetration rate in existing markets by adding capacity in cities where we are experiencing rapid growth and strong profitability."

Mr. Yu concluded, "Looking ahead, while we expect that the reduction in the size of our network over the last year, uncertainty about province-by-province implementation of new policies relating to the English test for the Gaokao college entrance exam, increased competition especially in second- and third-tier cities, and O2O product transitions in our POP Kids program will result in somewhat slower top-line growth in the first half of fiscal year 2015, we believe that the fundamentals of our business remain strong and that we will extend our clear leadership position in China's education market."

Louis T. Hsieh, New Oriental's President and Chief Financial Officer, commented, "Although we did not expand our school network over the last fiscal year, we nevertheless continued to record strong growth momentum across our key business lines as we improved utilization rates across the network. Our overseas test preparation and overseas study consulting businesses together recorded year-over-year gross revenue growth of about 22% to approximately US$440.6 million, while our U-Can grade 7 to 12 all-subjects after-school tutoring business recorded year-over-year gross revenue growth of about 23% to approximately US$328.4 million."

Adoption of Share Repurchase Program

On July 22, 2014, New Oriental's board of directors authorized the repurchase of up to US$120 million of the Company's shares during the period from July 28, 2014, through March 31, 2015.

This share repurchase program authorizes the Company to purchase its ADSs or common shares from time to time on the open market at prevailing market prices, in negotiated transactions off the market, in block trades, pursuant to a 10b5-1 plan or other legally permissible ways in accordance with applicable rules and regulations. The timing and extent of any purchases will depend upon market conditions, the trading price of ADSs and other factors.

New Oriental expects to implement this share repurchase program in a manner consistent with market conditions and the interests of the shareholders. New Oriental's board of directors will review the share repurchase program periodically and may authorize adjustment of its terms and size accordingly. New Oriental plans to fund any share repurchases made under this program from the Company's available cash balance.

Updates on Online Education Strategy: Establishment of Online and Offline Integrated Education Ecosystem

New Oriental is in the process of establishing an online and offline integrated education ecosystem. This ecosystem strategy consists of three levels.

1) The core element of the ecosystem is to develop an "O2O Two-way Interactive Education System" by extending New Oriental's traditional offline classroom-teaching offerings to online educational services.

New Oriental has developed a platform featuring a series of online education modules to support classroom teaching, after-class self-learning, and interaction between students, teachers, and parents via internet-enabled devices, such as smartphones, tablets and PCs. The Company has been piloting and upgrading the platform for all major product lines since the beginning of fiscal year 2015. A newly revamped POP kids English program, called "Shuang You" will be fully launched throughout the New Oriental network in the second quarter of fiscal year 2015. A revamped U-Can all-subject after-school tutoring program, named "U-Can Visible Progress Teaching system," has been piloted in several large cities and will be rolled out to more cities in the first half of fiscal year 2015. Similar systems will also be implemented for overseas test preparation and domestic test preparation courses beginning from the second quarter of fiscal year 2015.

2) The second level above the O2O Two-way Interactive Education System is to invest in the development of supplementary online educational products and services.

New Oriental's own online education website koolearn.com now offers over 2,000 online courses in language training, overseas and domestic test preparation and vocational education with over 9.2 million cumulative registered users by the end of fiscal year 2014 and about 177,700 paying users in fiscal year 2014. Recent developments relating to koolearn.com include:

  • Koolearn.com recently launched an online test preparation program, which features live broadcasts of a series of New Oriental's most popular offline test preparation classes. This program had achieved over 264,400 registrations in the second half of fiscal year 2014.
  • In July 2014, Koolearn.com and ATA Inc. (NASDAQ: ATAI), a leading provider of advanced testing technologies and testing-related services in China, established a joint venture to provide online and mobile education and training to working professionals in China. The partnership aims to leverage New Oriental's expertise in online education website and its distribution channels, and ATA Inc.'s experience in assessment deliveries, student resources, learning tools, software and other technical resources.
  • Koolearn.com's "DONUT" game-based mobile learning applications for children aged 2 to 8 recorded over 8 million downloads by the end of fiscal year 2014 and Koolearn.com has reached agreements for DONUT applications to be used in about 20 kindergartens by September 2014.

In addition, during the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014 New Oriental made important progress in its strategy to develop other supplementary online education products and services under the New Oriental brand, either independently or in majority-held partnerships with other companies. Recent developments in this regard include:

  • In May 2014, the Company launched an English language vocabulary training application, "Le Ci", for mobile phones and tablets. Le Ci aids vocabulary memorization and language development using techniques developed by New Oriental's Chairman and CEO, Michael Yu. Over time, social networking and incentive-based learning features will be added to the application. In the two months since it was launched, the application has already recorded over 310,000 users.
  • In July 2014, the Company also launched an online education platform for primary and secondary schools. The "OKAY" platform was developed in cooperation with more than 30,000 teachers from 49 public schools in China and was specifically designed to support learning activities in primary and secondary classrooms. It features an extensive database of educational content and resources, which can support intelligent, customized, interactive in-class teaching and learning on New Oriental customized tablets and digital whiteboards. The platform can also track and analyze students' after-class self-learning progress, and automatically push customized content that can improve students' learning efficiency.
  • New Oriental has developed a strategic partnership with Tencent Holdings Limited ("Tencent", SEHK: 00700), a leading provider of comprehensive Internet services in China, to research and develop unique mobile-based English language learning offerings that will build on the Company's deep resources in terms of content and educational research and Tencent's technological expertise and online penetration. The first product is expected to be launched by the end of 2014, and will be promoted through Tencent's online channels and New Oriental's offline network.

3) New Oriental is also exploring opportunities to invest in selected online education companies with minority stake to further support its efforts to develop a comprehensive online and offline integrated education ecosystem.

New Oriental intends to focus on investing in online education companies that have business models or technologies that are complementary to its online education strategy.

Financial Results for the Fourth Fiscal Quarter Ended May 31, 2014

For the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014, New Oriental reported net revenues of US$287.5 million, representing a 20.0% increase year-over-year.

Net revenues from educational programs and services for the fourth fiscal quarter were US$236.2 million, representing a 16.6% increase year-over-year. The growth was mainly driven by an increase in student enrollments in academic subjects tutoring and test preparation courses, as well as an increase in average selling prices. Total student enrollments in academic subjects tutoring and test preparation courses in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014 increased by 4.0% year-over-year to approximately 581,400 from approximately 559,000 in the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Total student enrollments in academic subjects tutoring and test preparation courses for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2014, increased by 5.1% year-over-year to approximately 2,668,700 from approximately 2,540,300 for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2013.

Outlook for First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2015

New Oriental expects total net revenues in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015 (June 1, 2014, to August 31, 2014) to be in the range of US$412.0 million to US$427.5 million, representing year-over-year growth in the range of 6% to 10%. This lower-than-normal projected revenue growth rate reflects the anticipated impact on the Company's top-line performance of margin expansion initiatives in fiscal year 2014, the transition to a new POP Kids program, changes in product mix and business seasonality, as well as certain macroeconomic factors. We are in the process of reducing our previous learning center opening plan of 10 to 12 per quarter in light of the slower than expected revenue growth outlook for our first quarter of 2015.

The specific factors impacting the Company's guidance are:

  • The fact that the Company has reduced the total number of schools and learning centers in its network, which decreased by a net of 23 during fiscal year 2014 to 703 at the end of fiscal year 2014 from 726 at the end of fiscal year 2013;
  • The ongoing rollout of a revamped POP Kids program, which has impacted enrollments in this business line and is expected to be fully completed in the second quarter of fiscal year 2015;
  • An expected continued decline in enrollments for the Company's legacy business lines of adult English and domestic college English test preparation;
  • Uncertainty about the implementation of new policies related to the English test for the Gaokao, or college entrance exam, which is being determined on a province-by-province basis;
  • Changing trends in the seasonality of the Company's business as its fastest-growing business line, K-12 after-school tutoring, experiences a slack season in the first fiscal quarter when primary and secondary schools are closed for the summer break;
  • Growing local competition in second and third tier cities in the K-12 after-school tutoring segment;
  • The slowing Chinese economy which has adversely affected discretionary consumer spending, notwithstanding the fact that educational services remain more resilient than most other discretionary consumer categories; and
  • The recent depreciation of Renminbi against U.S. dollar.

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

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.
