Noah Education CEO Discusses Q1 2011 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Overall, we initiated our fiscal year 2011 by proactively addressing the challenges we think. The initiatives and strategic imperatives we have implemented, firmly places on the road to recovery. Though there remains much work to do, we are focused on rebuilding our health channels, maintaining healthy inventory levels and accounts receivables and streamlining our cost-based and optimizing resources deployment in higher growth segments. Our management team is committed to accelerating organic and accretive growth within our educations services base.

With that I will now turn the call over to Dora to walk you through our financial performance for the quarter.

Dora Li

Thank you, Chairman. As you’ve seen from release, net revenue in the first quarter declined 46.5% year-over-year to RMB127.3 million, in line with our initial guidance, as we rebut our distribution network and recover sales in our core business, ELP sales or RMB107.6 million down 52.2% from the first quarter of fiscal 2010.

DLD revenue declined 25.8% to RMB62.6 million and the KLD revenue was down 73.7% year-over-year to RMB27.9 million. Both of these segments were impacted by pressing pressure and declining sales volume in light of the toughening competitive landscape and ongoing disruption from our channel realignment initiatives.

As we continue to actively stabilized and restore growth to our ELP business, we are also focused on building up our education service offering, which we will as a more profitable and sustainable long-term business. As you can see on slide 5, revenues from education services grew by more than 51.5% year-over-year to about RMB20 million during the quarter, in line with our strategic decisions to accelerate the growth from this segment.

Little New Star accounted for RMB 11.6 million of education services revenue this quarter, with the remaining RMB8.1 million coming from two-month contribution from Wentai Education since the completion of acquisition on July 29, 2010.
