Noah Holdings Limited Announces Financial Results For The First Quarter Of 2011

A live webcast of the conference call and replay will be available in the investor relations section of the Company's website at: http://ir.noahwm.com.

DISCUSSION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES:

In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company’s earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the effects of all forms of share-based compensation and loss or gain on change in fair value of derivative liabilities. The non-GAAP financial measures used by management and disclosed by the Company exclude the income statement effects of all forms of share-based compensation and loss or gain on change in fair value of derivative liabilities. The reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest GAAP measures is set forth in the table captioned “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results” below.

The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The financial results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP and reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measure used by the Company may be prepared differently from and, therefore, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

When evaluating the Company’s operating performance in the periods presented, management reviewed non-GAAP net income results reflecting adjustments to exclude the impacts of share-based compensation and change in fair value of derivative liabilities to supplement U.S. GAAP financial data. As such, the Company believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP income (loss) per diluted ADS and non-GAAP net margin provides important supplemental information to investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company’s financial condition and results of operations in a manner consistent with that used by management. Pursuant to U.S. GAAP, the Company recognized significant amounts of expenses for the restricted shares and of loss (gain) on change in fair value of derivative liabilities in the periods presented. As the series A preferred shares that had triggered the accounting treatment of derivative liabilities were converted into ordinary share upon the Company’s initial public offering in November 2010, the Company does not expect to incur similar expenses in the future. To make financial results comparable period by period, the Company utilized the non-GAAP financial results to better understand its historical business operations.
