  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 reflect meaningful 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. Each ADS represents four common shares.

Michael Yu, New Oriental's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "As we predicted in last quarter's earnings call, we saw a strong bounce back from the negative effects on our business from the Shanghai World Expo, achieving year-over-year revenue growth of 56.3% to US$95.7 million and earnings growth of 65.9% to US$1.8 million. Our student enrollments grew by 32.2% to about 405,800 in the second quarter of fiscal year 2011, demonstrating strong market preference for our high quality educational programs, superior customer service and "one-stop" convenient offerings. We continue to extend our substantial market leading positions in our key business segments of overseas test preparation, K-12 all-subjects after-school tutoring and English language training. We have recorded over 1.1 million student enrollments in the first half of our fiscal year 2011 and are well on our way to passing the 2 million student enrollment milestone for this fiscal year, comprised of over 1 million adult enrollments and over 1 million K-12 enrollments."

Mr. Yu continued, "We opened one new school in Luoyang city, Henan province, and a net of 24 learning centers in about 20 existing cities during this quarter. The majority of the new learning centers in large cities are small K-12 after-school tutoring facilities with only 8 to 15 classrooms which is part of our "fill-in" convenient location strategy within cities to better serve our rapidly growing student base. To further develop our K-12 all-subjects after-school tutoring business and enhance our "one-stop" shop services with not only large classes but also one-to-one and small size classes, we continued the investment in hiring and training new teachers and customer service representatives. In the 12-month period ended November 30, 2010 we added a net of over 4,700 new teachers, bringing our total headcount of teachers to over 10,800 at the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2011. Meanwhile, we added about 950 customer service representatives and marketing staff, representing an increase of approximately 43%. The learning center expansion and headcount increase resulted in an increase in operating costs and expenses of approximately 57% year-over-year in this quarter. However, compared with the last quarter, we have managed our learning center expansion and headcount increase at a more moderate pace in the second quarter of fiscal year 2011. In the quarters ahead we will focus more attention on expense control and improving utilization of our existing facilities and staff."

Louis T. Hsieh, New Oriental's President and Chief Financial Officer, stated, "We have seen continued strong growth in each of our key business segments. First, our K-12 all-subjects after-school tutoring business recorded year-over-year enrollment growth of more than 50% to over 174,400 and year-over-year revenue growth of over 80% to over US$30.5 million for the second fiscal quarter. Within this segment, our non-English U-Can all-subjects business showed particular strength, recording year-over-year enrollment growth of more than 102% to over 27,200 and year-over-year revenue growth of over 200% to over US$8.1 million for the quarter. We continue to be the leading service provider in the K-12 all-subjects after-school tutoring market in China with approximately US$153 million in revenues and approximately 920,900 in enrollments in the 12-month period ended November 30, 2010.

Second, our overseas test preparation segment recorded year-over-year enrollment growth of more than 38% to over 73,500 and year-over-year revenue growth of over 75% to about US$28.5 million for the second fiscal quarter. We are the leader in the overseas test preparation market with approximately US$136.5 million in revenues and approximately 292,700 in enrollments in the 12-month period ended November 30, 2010.

Third, our English language training programs for K-12 students and adults recorded year-over-year enrollment growth of more than 22% to over 277,400 and year-over-year revenue growth of over 40% to over US$36 million for the second fiscal quarter. We are the leading service provider in the English language training market with approximately US$194 million revenues and approximately 1,386,000 enrollments in the 12-month period ended November 30, 2010."

Mr. Hsieh continued, "We are extremely pleased with the performance of our VIP (one-to-one to one-to-five) personalized services offered in each of our key business segments, which recorded year-over-year enrollment growth of more than 100% to over 14,200 and year-over-year revenue growth of over 225% to over US$29.6 million for the second fiscal quarter. For the first half of fiscal year 2011, our VIP personalized services business recorded year-over-year enrollment growth of more than 114% to over 28,600 and year-over-year revenue growth of over 240% to about US$55 million. The market-driven shift in our course mix toward more VIP offerings is the primary reason we experienced an over 25% year-over-year increase in blended average selling price (ASPs) for the second fiscal quarter to over US$250 per enrollment."

Financial Results for the Fiscal Quarter Ended November 30, 2010

For the second quarter of fiscal year 2011, New Oriental reported net revenues of US$95.7 million, representing a 56.3% increase year-over-year.

Net revenues from educational programs and services for the second fiscal quarter were US$84.5 million, representing a 57.7% increase year-over-year. The growth was mainly driven by the increase in number of student enrollments in academic subjects tutoring and test preparation courses and higher average selling prices (ASPs) resulting from students selecting more expensive, smaller class options. Total student enrollments in academic subjects tutoring and test preparation courses in the second quarter of fiscal year 2011 increased by 32.2% year-over-year to approximately 405,800 from approximately 307,000 in the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Operating costs and expenses for the quarter were US$97.7 million, a 57.3% increase year-over-year. Non-GAAP operating costs and expenses, which exclude share-based compensation expenses, for the quarter were US$94.4 million, a 63.4% increase year-over-year.

Cost of revenues for the quarter increased by 60.3% year-over-year to US$44.6 million, primarily due to the increased number of courses and the greater number of schools and learning centers in operation.

Selling and marketing expenses for the quarter increased by 58.9% year-over-year to US$18.6 million, primarily due to our promotion of newer service offerings and the addition of about 950 customer service representatives and marketing staff in the 12-month period ended November 30, 2010.

General and administrative expenses for the quarter increased by 52.9% year-over-year to US$34.6 million. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, which exclude share-based compensation expenses, were US$31.5 million, a 70.3% increase year-over-year, primarily due to increased headcount as the Company expanded its network of schools and learning centers.

Total share-based compensation expenses, which were allocated to related operating costs and expenses, decreased by 23.6% to US$3.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2011 from US$4.4 million in the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Capital expenditures for the quarter were US$19.9 million, primarily used to purchase two new buildings in Kunming and Wuhan, respectively, costing approximately US$11.1 million in total, and to add a net of 24 schools and learning centers.

As of November 30, 2010, New Oriental had cash and cash equivalents of US$248.1 million, as compared to US$293.3 million as of August 31, 2010. In addition, the Company had US$255.8 million in term deposits at the end of the quarter. Net operating cash flow for the second quarter of fiscal year 2011 was approximately US$24.3 million.

The deferred revenue balance, which is cash collected from registered students for courses and is recognized proportionally as revenue as the instructions are delivered, at the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2011 was US$137.9 million, an increase of 94.1% as compared to US$71.1 million at the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2010.

Financial Results for the Six Months Ended November 30, 2010

For the first six months of fiscal year 2011, New Oriental reported net revenues of US$288.0 million, representing a 36.8% increase year-over-year.

Total student enrollments in academic subjects tutoring and test preparation courses in the first six months of fiscal year 2011 increased by 16.3% to approximately 1,110,300 from approximately 954,500 in the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Income from operations for the first six months of fiscal year 2011 was US$63.9 million, representing a 6.4% increase year-over-year. Non-GAAP income from operations for the first six months of fiscal year 2011 was US$72.2 million, representing a 6.0% increase year-over-year.

Operating margin for the first six months of fiscal year 2011 was 22.2%, compared to 28.5% for the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ADS attributable to New Oriental for the first six months of fiscal year 2011 amounted to US$1.90 and US$1.86, respectively.

Outlook for Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2011

New Oriental expects its total net revenues in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011 (December 1, 2010 to February 28, 2011) to be in the range of US$116.8 million to US$121.3 million, representing year-over-year growth in the range of 31% to 36%. The year-over-year comparison growth forecast for the third fiscal quarter of 2011 has factored in a regular three-week winter holiday for students this year, compared to last year's longer-than-usual winter holidays for students in most Chinese provinces due to the late timing of Chinese New Year, which fell on February 14, 2010, allowing our students to study for longer periods and enroll in more sessions last year. 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.
