Operating Highlights for the Third Fiscal Quarter Ended February 28, 2018

  • Total student enrollments in academic subjects tutoring and test preparation courses increased by 7.7% year-over-year to approximately 861,400 for the third fiscal quarter of 2018.
  • The total number of schools and learning centers was 1000 as of February 28, 2018, an increase of 197 compared to 803 as of February 28, 2017, and an increase of 60 compared to 940 as of November 30, 2017. The total number of schools was 87 as of February 28, 2018.

Michael Minhong Yu, New Oriental's Executive Chairman, commented, "We are pleased to continue our strong momentum in driving top line growth for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018. Our revenue increased by 41.2%, exceeding our initial expectation once again. Our deferred revenue balance recorded US$1,083.8 million at the end of the quarter, up 42.5% year-over-year. This was mainly driven by the significant increase in student enrollments in the second and third quarters of fiscal year 2018, which reached a year-over-year growth of 30% despite the influence of a much later Chinese New Year this year. Our K-12 all-subjects after-school tutoring business accelerated its growth momentum in the third quarter, leading to a significant year-over-year revenue increase of 51%. Furthermore, our U-Can middle and high school all-subjects after-school tutoring business also recorded revenue growth of approximately 51% while the POP Kids program grew by approximately 50% year-over-year. It is also very encouraging to see sustained drive in enrollments and cash proceeds from student registrations remained in the first eight weeks of the fourth fiscal quarter, which grew year-over-year by approximately 40% and 65%, respectively."

Chenggang Zhou, New Oriental's Chief Executive Officer, added, "We are committed to sustaining a healthy balance between top line and bottom line growth as we execute our well-proven 'Optimize the Market' strategy. Following a strong track record in the previous three quarters, we continued to make great strides in our planned acceleration in capacity expansion across cities with superior growth potential and higher operating efficiency. We added a net of 47 learning centers in 23 existing cities, opened two new schools in Lianyungang and Yancheng, and rolled out three dual-teacher model schools and eight learning centers in Jiaozuo, Dongguan and Haikou. Altogether, our total square meters of classroom area by the end of this quarter increased by approximately 41% year-over-year. Meanwhile, we continued to strengthen our online and offline integrated standardized teaching system in the K-12 business and deployed the standardized teaching system in our overseas test preparation business in some of the larger cities in China. Moreover, we carried on our efforts in building our online business and deepened investment in our pure online education platform, Koolearn.com, which delivered a year-over-year revenue growth of approximately 63% in this quarter, with registered users and paid users up by approximately 88% and 70% respectively. With solid support in resources and a series of new initiatives being rolled out, our online K-12 after-school tutoring business reported a robust year-over-year revenue growth of approximately 176%. This reflected our endeavours and further boosted our confidence in making strategic investments to capitalise on the booming online education market and to drive up our top line growth."

Stephen Zhihui Yang, New Oriental's Chief Financial Officer, commented, " As we consistently pushed ahead with our capacity expansion strategy, our margin faced short-term headwind in this quarter with the pressure contained at a reasonable level. Non-GAAP operating margin for our language training and test preparation business declined 140 basis points year-over-year, which is in line with that of the previous quarter. We continue to anticipate that the margin pressure will gradually lessen and be lifted off over the fourth fiscal quarter and the coming fiscal year, as our key focus remains to be the enhancement in operational efficiency, utilization of facilities and cost control as time progresses. We believe that with our well-proven expansion strategy, our strategic vision and investments will continue to create sustainable long-term value for our customers and shareholders."

Financial Results for the Third Fiscal Quarter Ended February 28, 2018

Net Revenues

For the third fiscal quarter of 2018, New Oriental reported net revenues of US$618.1 million, representing a 41.2% increase year-over-year. Net revenues from educational programs and services for the third fiscal quarter were US$564.8 million, representing a 43.0% increase year-over-year. The growth was mainly driven by increases in student enrollments in academic subjects tutoring and test preparation courses in the recent two quarters. As the registration for the 2018 winter and spring semester was concentrated in the last month of the second fiscal quarter, it contributed an exceptional 43% year-over-year enrollment growth in the period. Following that, student enrollments continued to grow by 7.7% year-over-year in the third fiscal quarter. The combined enrollment growth for the second and third quarter reached 30%.

Operating Costs and Expenses

Operating costs and expenses for the quarter were US$559.7 million, representing a 47.2% increase year-over-year. Non-GAAP operating costs and expenses for the quarter, which exclude share-based compensation expenses, were US$536.9 million, representing a 44.3% increase year-over-year.

  • Cost of revenues increased by 46.5% year-over-year to US$268.8 million, primarily due to increases in teachers' compensation for more teaching hours and rental cost for increased number of schools and learning centers in operation.
  • Selling and marketing expenses increased by 38.2% year-over-year to US$77.2 million, primarily due to increases in brand promotion expenses and selling and marketing staff's compensation.
  • General and administrative expenses for the quarter increased by 51.7% year-over-year to US$213.7 million. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, which exclude share-based compensation expenses, were US$190.9 million, representing a 43.9% increase year-over-year, primarily due to increased headcount as the Company expanded its network of schools and learning centers, as well as increases in R&D expenses and human resources expenses related to the development of our online and offline integrated education ecosystem.

Total share-based compensation expenses, which were allocated to related operating costs and expenses, increased by 175.6% to US$22.8 million in the third fiscal quarter of 2018, due to the grants of a total of 1.5 million restricted share units of the Company to employees and directors on October 27, 2017 with graded vesting over three years.

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.
