Mr. Xin Jin, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Xueda, commented, “We are very pleased to announce our first quarterly results as a public company. We achieved an important milestone in our corporate history with our successful initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange in early November, which we believe will significantly contribute to our branding initiatives and help us enhance our corporate governance. As highlighted by our robust operating metrics above, we had an impressive third quarter, even though the third quarter is seasonally our slowest quarter because fewer students use our tutoring services during September due to the mandatory military training at the beginning of school year in September. We believe our strong operational performance once again demonstrates our solid business model and execution capability. We are convinced that the combination of Xueda’s established nationwide network, highly recognized brand, scalable operating platform and unmatched expertise in the tutoring market continues to solidify our leading market position and provides us with sustainable competitive advantages. With the additional cash raised from our recent IPO and private placement transaction, we are well positioned to further expand our market share in China’s large, fast-growing and fragmented private educational services industry.”
