TAL Education Group Announces Unaudited Financial Results For The Third Fiscal Quarter Ended November 30, 2010

“During the quarter, we added a total of nine new learning centers, seven of which were in Shanghai and the remaining two in Beijing. Over the past three quarters in Beijing we have concentrated on improving classroom utilization in our existing facilities rather than rapidly increasing the number of centers. We are encouraged by the progress we have seen in this regard since the Chinese New Year term last year, and believe we are now ready to shift our focus back toward a new phase of investment in learning centers over the coming quarters. By building out our capacity, we can continue to meet the ongoing demand from parents and students in this essential market.”

“In addition to our ongoing focus on improving our center operations, we also further enhanced our content offerings by kicking off two new exciting initiatives in the quarter. We signed with McGraw-Hill Education a breakthrough agreement in which we will cooperate to co-develop and co-brand English materials for junior high and high school students under our ‘Le Jia Le’ English offering. We also launched an innovative and proprietary classroom teaching solution called ‘ICS,’ which stands for ‘Intelligent Classroom System,’ in November. ICS makes in-class learning more interactive and stimulating by facilitating the broadcast of our own multimedia content using projectors and whiteboards. ”

“Our combination of outstanding teaching quality with proprietary content continues to drive strong academic achievements by our students. I am confident that our ongoing ability to deliver these exceptional learning experiences and outcomes will allow us to benefit from the immense growth potential of the large and highly fragmented K-12 after-school tutoring market we serve.”

Mr. Joseph Kauffman, Chief Financial Officer, continued, “Our disciplined focus on serving the unique needs of the K-12 after-school tutoring market continues to drive consistent and profitable growth for our company. In our third fiscal quarter we delivered strong topline growth of 47.7%, while at the same time growing non-GAAP net income by 77.3%. We are particularly encouraged by the appeal of our strong K-12 brand, leading small class model, and active online education platform in the new markets we have entered over the last two years. In the coming quarters, we will continue to invest in the foundation for the future growth of our Company by further penetrating existing markets with new learning centers, expanding into new cities, and gradually rolling out our high-growth one-on-one business model to markets outside Beijing.”
