"We are pleased to report solid fourth fiscal quarter results with continued strong revenue growth of 45.7% and even higher profit growth of over 110%," said Michael Yu, New Oriental's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "For the full fiscal year 2010, we achieved outstanding financial results despite the challenges posed by the H1N1 flu outbreak last summer and fall. We saw about 19% year-over-year growth in student enrollments in language training and test preparation courses, which resulted in net revenue growth of 32% to US$386.3 million, exceeding our target of 25-30% growth for fiscal year 2010, and profit growth of 27.5% to US$77.8 million. As we enter fiscal year 2011, we continue to see strong demand for our program offerings this summer, and we are again targeting top line growth of approximately 25-30% for this fiscal year ending May 31, 2011."

"Starting in the fourth fiscal quarter, we accelerated the expansion of our network by adding a net of 43 learning centers in more than 20 cities, which brought our total number of schools and learning centers to 367 at the end of fiscal year 2010, an increase of 97 from a year ago exceeding our target of 70 learning centers for the year. As we enter fiscal year 2011, we plan to continue expanding aggressively by adding about 100 learning centers in existing cities and penetrating two to four new cities. Concurrently, we are launching two exciting, large scale initiatives in fiscal year 2011. Our first initiative is Kids' Math and Kids' Chinese writing programs under our highly successful POP Kids brand, which will target 6- to 12-year-old children and complement our POP Kids English courses. Our second initiative is New Oriental's proprietary new learning system for Middle and High School students, which focuses on English and all-subjects skills assessment, development, testing and improvement. With these new programs being rolled out to our network of schools and learning centers, New Oriental is targeting over 1 million student enrollments for our programs for 6- to 18-year-old students in fiscal year 2011, up from approximately 790,000 in fiscal year 2010. Combined with the over 1 million adult enrollments we are expecting for fiscal year 2011, we are targeting a total of over 2 million student enrollments for the upcoming 12 months, an important milestone for the company and testament to the high quality of our educational programs and service offerings," concluded Mr. Yu.

Louis T. Hsieh, New Oriental's President and Chief Financial Officer, stated, "Our three key business segments continued to perform very well. First, the Middle and High School U-Can all-subjects training program has been rolled out to 39 cities throughout China. Enrollments in non-English U-Can courses in the fourth fiscal quarter were over 36,800, which brought the enrollments for the full fiscal year 2010 to approximately 120,000, and total revenues in non- English U-Can courses for the fiscal year 2010 reached US$34 million. These results are well above our original targets of 80,000 to 90,000 enrollments and revenues of US$25 million. Second, our POP Kids English program recorded year-over-year enrollment growth of more than 50% for the fourth fiscal quarter, growing to over 104,000, and enrollment growth for fiscal year 2010 exceeded 40%, rising to over 434,300, with fiscal year revenue growth of over 44% year-over-year to approximately US$50 million. Third, our Overseas Test Preparation program recorded enrollment growth of 25% and year-over-year revenue growth of over 40% in the fourth fiscal quarter, with fiscal year enrollment growth of 12% to over 256,500 and fiscal year revenue growth of about 30% to approximately US$107 million."

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.
