"We finished our first fiscal year as a public company on a strong note, delivering 39.7% and 46.7% revenue growth for the fourth quarter and for the year, respectively. In addition to the strong top line growth, we also achieved the objective set at the beginning of the year to improve profitability by delivering an even stronger net income growth of 75.8% in fiscal year 2014," said Mr. Shaoyun Han, Tarena's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

"More importantly, we believe we have laid a solid foundation in 2014 to drive sustained growth in 2015. Our overall center utilization increased by more than 5% to reach 71% for the fiscal year 2014. In the fourth quarter of 2014, we opened 13 new learning centers in anticipation of strong student enrollment in our courses after the Chinese New Year holidays. Given the greater business scale and the larger base of more mature learning centers, we expect our profitability to further increase in 2015," Mr. Han continued.

"We are also particularly pleased with the progress we made in 2014 to expand course offerings beyond our core strength in IT. Our non-IT courses experienced tremendous growth and accounted for 37.6% of total student enrollments in 2014. Our third non-IT course, accounting, enrolled 247 students within the first two months of launch in Beijing alone and will provide an additional growth engine in 2015 as we start to roll it out to other cities in China. Such enrollment results further validated our strategy to diversify our course offerings and revenues by expanding into other high growth disciplines. Finally, and most importantly, we are proud that Tarena continued to deliver excellent education quality and student outcomes, as evidenced by our 4-month post-course job placement rate of above 95% in 2014. We are confident that Tarena will continue to solidify its leading position in China's professional education services market and generate sustained growth," Mr. Han concluded.

Mr. Suhai Ji, Tarena's Chief Financial Officer, added, "in the fourth quarter, we continued to record healthy revenue and gross profit growth driven by strong student enrollments and higher center utilization. Gross margin in the fourth quarter increased by 240 basis points year-over-year to 72.7%. Our non-GAAP operating margin decreased to 16.9% mostly due to a $3.2 million bad debt allowance that we took in the quarter. This is a legacy issue primarily related to students enrolled between 2010 and 2012 through our installment payment plan, which we have substantially reduced after third party financing providers established loan programs for our students in 2013. Despite such impact for the quarter, our non-GAAP operating income for fiscal year 2014 still grew by 60.8% and non-GAAP operating margin also increased by 150 basis points year-over-year to 17.1%."

Fourth Quarter 2014 Results

Net Revenues

Net revenues increased by 39.7% to US$39.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, from US$28.4 million in the same period in 2013. The increase was primarily due to increased student enrollments and higher average revenue per student, as defined by net revenues divided by student enrollment.

Total student enrollments in the fourth quarter of 2014 increased by 22.1% to 16,080 from 13,169 in the same period in 2013, which was driven mainly by the number and the popularity of our course offerings. The number of our course offerings increased from 11 to 12 in the fourth quarter year-over-year while the number of our learning centers increased from 92 as of December 31, 2013 to 118 as of December 31, 2014 to cater to the increased demand for our courses.

Average revenue per student in the fourth quarter of 2014 increased by 14.4% to US$2,466 from US$2,155 in the same period in 2013. The growth in average revenue per student was mainly driven by the increase of standard tuition fees for our courses and the higher percentage of retail channel in our student enrollment channel mix. Beginning in the second quarter of 2014, we raised the standard tuition fees on some of our courses by RMB1,000(US$163) per course. While we typically charge students enrolled through the retail channel the standard tuition fee, we generally offer students enrolled through the university channel a discount of approximately RMB4,000(US$650) per person per course. Our student enrollment mix from retail and university channel was 82%/18% and 77%/23% in the fourth quarter of 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues increased by 28.4% to US$10.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, from US$8.4 million in the same period in 2013. The increase was mainly due to higher personnel cost and welfare expenses resulting from increased number of teaching and advisory staff at our learning centers and higher average salary, higher rental cost resulting from increased number of learning centers, as well as higher depreciation expenses for our learning centers.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit increased by 44.5% to US$28.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, from US$20.0 million in the same period in 2013. Gross margin increased to 72.7% in the fourth quarter of 2014 from 70.3% in the same period in 2013. The improvement in gross margin was mainly due to increased operational scale and efficiency for our learning centers. Our overall center utilization rate in the fourth quarter of 2014 increased to 75% from 70% in the same period in 2013. Personnel cost and welfare expenses decreased to 10.1% of total net revenues in the fourth quarter of 2014, from 11.4% in the same period in 2013. Rental expenses decreased to 7.7% of total net revenues in the fourth quarter of 2014, from 8.1% in the same period in 2013.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses increased by 58.5% to US$23.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, from US$14.6 million in the same period in 2013 as a result of increases in our selling and marketing, general and administrative and research and development expenses. Total non-GAAP operating expenses, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 54.2% to US$22.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, from US$14.4 million in the same period in 2013. Total share-based compensation expenses allocated to the related operating expenses increased by 335.7% to US$1.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, from US$0.2 million in the same period in 2013.

Selling and marketing expenses increased by 46.9% to US$12.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, from US$8.4 million in the same period in 2013. The increase was due to higher personnel cost and welfare expenses related to the growth in our selling and marketing headcount and higher average salary, and expanded marketing efforts primarily as a result of increased spending on advertising as we expanded our network of learning centers. Selling and marketing expenses in the fourth quarter of 2014 accounted for 31.1% of the total net revenues, compared to 29.6% in the same period in 2013, primarily because we opened thirteen new learning centers in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to six in the same period in 2013.

General and administrative expenses increased by 82.3% to US$9.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, from US$5.0 million in the same period in 2013. The increase was mainly due to higher bad debt allowance, higher compensation cost for our increased number of general and administrative personnel to support our growing operations and higher share-based compensation expenses. General and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 2014 accounted for 23.1% of the total net revenues, compared to 17.7% in the same period in 2013. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 72.1% to US$8.3 million, from US$4.8 million in the same period in 2013. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 2014 accounted for 20.9% of total net revenues, compared to 17.0% in the same period in 2013.

Research and development expenses increased by 39.8% to US$1.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, from US$1.2 million in the same period in 2013. The increase was mainly due to higher personnel cost and welfare expenses of our instructors allocated to their content development activities for our courses, as well as increased number of research and development staff as we expanded our course offerings and operations. Research and development expenses in the fourth quarter of 2014 accounted for 4.2% of total net revenues, compared to 4.1% in the same period in 2013.

Operating Income

Operating income increased by 6.4% to US$5.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, from US$5.4 million in the same period in 2013. Operating margin was 14.4% in the fourth quarter of 2014 as compared to 18.9% in the same period in 2013. Non-GAAP operating income, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 19.7% to US$6.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, from US$5.6 million in the same period in 2013. Non-GAAP operating margin was 16.9% in the fourth quarter of 2014 as compared to 19.7% in the same period in 2013.

Interest Income, Net

Net interest income was US$1.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to US$0.1 million in the same period in 2013. Interest income in both periods consisted of interest earned on our cash and time deposits in commercial banks and interest income recognized in relation to our installment payment plan for students. The increase in net interest income was primarily due to higher deposit levels resulting from the Company's IPO proceeds in April 2014.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense was US$0.54 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to US$0.52 million in the same period in 2013. The slight increase was mainly due to higher taxable income, largely offset by a decrease in the effective income tax rate to 6.7% in the fourth quarter of 2014 from 7.9% in the same period in 2013. The decrease in the effective income tax rate was primarily due to a tax holiday enjoyed by one of our wholly owned subsidiaries that is qualified as a "Newly Established Software Enterprise" under the PRC Enterprise Income Tax Law, which provides a two-year full exemption from enterprise income tax from 2014 to 2015 followed by a three-year 50% exemption from 2016 to 2018.

Net Income

As a result of the foregoing, net income increased by 23.8% to US$7.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, from US$6.1 million in the same period in 2013. Non-GAAP net income, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 34.9% year-over-year to US$8.5 million from US$6.3 million in the same period in 2013.

Basic and Diluted Net Income per ADS

Basic and diluted net income per ADS were US$0.15 and US$0.13 respectively in the fourth quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP basic and non-GAAP diluted net income per ADS, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, were US$0.17 and US$0.15, respectively.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Tarena's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), Tarena's management uses non-GAAP measures of cost of revenues, operating expenses, operating income, net income, and net income per share, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude the share-based compensation expenses.

Our non-GAAP financial information provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding share-based expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. These non-GAAP financial information 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. In addition, calculation of the non-GAAP financial measures may be different from the calculation used by other companies, and therefore comparability may be limited.

A limitation of using non-GAAP cost of revenues, operating expenses, operating income and net income 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. 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.

Note:

(a) On August 19, 2014, the Board of Directors approved the Company to undertake a reclassification of the balances between additional paid-in capital and accumulated deficit of US$85,568, 016 beginning in the third quarter of 2014. The reclassification was primarily due to the accretion of convertible redeemable preferred shares, of which US$85,568,016 were charged against the balance in accumulated deficit in the absence of additional paid-in capital.

(b) Net income attributable to ordinary shareholders reflected the impact of non-cash accounting charges relating to the preferred shares. All outstanding preferred shares were automatically converted into ordinary shares upon the completion of the Company's IPO on April 3, 2014. Thereafter, there will be no accretion to the preferred shares and all net income will be attributable to the ordinary shareholders.


(c) The Company uses the two-class method to calculate basic and diluted earnings per share. Under the two-class method, when calculating the basic and dilutive EPS, net income attributable to ordinary shareholders is adjusted to reflect the net income which is allocated to preferred shares.
