Bitauto Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results

BEIJING, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Bitauto Holdings Limited ("Bitauto" or the "Company") (NYSE: BITA), a leading provider of Internet content and marketing services for China's fast-growing automotive industry, today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012(1).

Third Quarter 2012 Highlights

  • Revenue in the third quarter of 2012 was RMB276.4 million (US$44.0 million), a 56.4% increase from the corresponding period in 2011.
  • Gross profit in the third quarter of 2012 was RMB202.3 million (US$32.2 million), a 64.2% increase from the corresponding period in 2011.
  • Operating profit in the third quarter of 2012 was RMB34.8 million (US$5.5 million), a 54.7% increase from the corresponding period in 2011.
  • IFRS profit in the third quarter of 2012 was RMB32.7 million (US$5.2 million), a 35.2% increase from the corresponding period in 2011.
  • Non-GAAP profit in the third quarter of 2012 was RMB36.6 million (US$5.8 million), a 26.6% increase from the corresponding period in 2011.
  • The Company had 8,615 subscribers of EP (known as Easypass prior to August 31, 2012), its online marketing platform for new cars, and 2,118 used car dealer customers, as of the nine months ended September 30, 2012.

"We saw encouraging results in the third quarter with year-over-year revenue growing 56.4%," commented Mr. William Li, chairman and chief executive officer of Bitauto. "During the third quarter, we focused on improving our EP platform and enhancing its integrated online marketing and CRM services. As of the end of August, we had successfully transferred all of our new car customers, which were previously serviced on the Easypass platform, to our EP platform. In the third quarter, the dispute over the Diaoyu Islands between China and Japan also had a negative impact on the online spending of our Japanese automobile customers and this had a minor impact on Bitauto's performance during the quarter. Going forward, we will continue to closely monitor the impact of the dispute on China's auto industry."

Mr. Li continued, "On November 2, we announced that certain of Bitauto's early shareholders entered into definitive agreements with AutoTrader Group, Inc., operator of the largest digital automotive marketplace in the United States, as well as Bitauto's senior management team. The transactions are expected to close this month, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. We are delighted to welcome AutoTrader Group as an important strategic investor in Bitauto. AutoTrader Group's industry leadership in the United States makes them an ideal partner for Bitauto. We are confident that this cooperation between AutoTrader Group and Bitauto will create significant opportunities and drive long-term shareholder value by bringing together leaders in the two largest automobile markets in the world."  

"We delivered solid growth in the third quarter thanks to our sustained focus on improving the offerings of our business segments and raising awareness of our brands," said Andy Zhang, chief financial officer of Bitauto. "Our strong top line performance helped drive a healthy increase in operating profit of 54.7% from the corresponding period in 2011. Our commitment to investing in the core growth drivers of our business continues to generate good results. Going forward, we will maintain our focus on our core growth strategies to further improve profitability. "

These forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as "will," "expects," "anticipates," "future," "intends," "plans," "believes," "estimates," "confident" and similar statements. Among other things, the outlook for fourth quarter of 2012 and the quotations from management in this announcement, as well as Bitauto's strategic and operational plans, contain forward-looking statements. Bitauto may also make written or oral forward-looking statements in its periodic reports to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, in its annual report to shareholders, in press releases and other written materials and in oral statements made by its officers, directors or employees to third parties.

Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties. A number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement, including but not limited to the following: our goals and strategies; our future business development, financial condition and results of operations; the expected growth of the automobile industry and the Internet marketing industry in China; our expectations regarding demand for and market acceptance of our services and service delivery model; our expectations regarding enhancing our brand recognition; our expectations regarding keeping and strengthening our relationships with major customers, partner websites and media vendors; relevant government policies and regulations relating to our businesses, automobile purchases and ownership in China; our ability to attract and retain quality employees; our ability to stay abreast of market trends and technological advances; competition in our industry in China and internationally; general economic and business conditions in China; and our ability to effectively protect our intellectual property rights and not infringe on the intellectual property rights of others.

All information provided in this press release and in the attachments is as of the date of this press release, and Bitauto undertakes no duty to update such information, except as required under applicable law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Bitauto's management supplements the data it receives regarding IFRS profit with non-GAAP profit, which excludes from IFRS profit the charges relating to share-based payments. This non-GAAP financial measure provides Bitauto's management with the ability to assess its operating results without considering the impact of non-cash charges resulting from share-based payments. Furthermore, this non-GAAP financial measure eliminates the impact of item(s) that Bitauto does not consider indicative of the performance of its business.

The use of non-GAAP profit has certain limitations. Share-based payments have been and will continue to be incurred and are not reflected in the presentation of the non-GAAP profit. This non-GAAP financial measure should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with IFRS, and should not be considered a substitute for or superior to IFRS results. In addition, non-GAAP profit may not be comparable to similarly titled measures utilized by other companies since such other companies may not calculate such measures in the same manner as Bitauto does.

Reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable IFRS financial measure is set forth at the end of this release.

(1) This announcement contains translations of certain amounts in Renminbi into U.S. dollars at specified rates solely for the convenience of the readers. Unless otherwise noted, all translations from Renminbi to U.S. dollars are made at a rate of RMB6.2848 to US$1.00, the effective noon buying rate as of September 28, 2012 in The City of New York for cable transfers of Renminbi as certified for customs purposes by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

 

(2) For the advertising agent services the Company provides, the Company acts as an agent in placing advertisements on the websites of the media vendors on behalf of the automaker customers. The Company receives fees in the capacity of an agent for assisting automaker customers in placing advertisements on media vendors' websites, and therefore, records the fees on a net basis in its consolidated financial statements. The net fees recognized from each such transaction amount to a relatively small percentage of the related trade receivables or payables recorded on a gross basis. For the advertising services the Company provides, the Company acts as the principal in the arrangement and records revenues on a gross basis in its consolidated financial statements. Revenues are recognized only after the amount has been contractually agreed with the customers, the advertisements have been published and when the collectability is reasonably assured. For both the advertising agent services and advertising services provided, the Company enters into publishing schedule agreements with its automaker and automobile dealer customers, and related advertising agreements with the media vendors who are then obligated to place the advertisements according to the Company's customers' publishing schedule agreements. At such time, the Company records receivables from the customers and, in the same amount, corresponding payables due to the media vendors on a gross basis. Such payments are conducted through the Company. Gross billings include the gross value of advertisements placed by the Company's customers that correspond to the gross payables recorded due to the media vendors.
