SouFun Announces Unaudited First Quarter 2012 Results

Stocks in this article: SFUN

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense for the first quarter of 2012 was US$1.9 million, a slight decrease of 8.8% compared to US$2.1 million for the same period of 2011 . The decrease was primarily due to the fact that two PRC subsidiaries obtained the certificate for “Software Enterprise” in 2012 and began to enjoy tax holiday.

Net Income Attributable to Shareholders

Net income attributable to shareholders for the first quarter of 2012 was US$14.5 million, an increase of 152.9% from US$5.7 million for the same period of 2011. Non-GAAP net income attributable to shareholders for the first quarter of 2012 was US$14.2 million, an increase of 83.3% compared to US$7.7 million for the same period of 2011.

Cash Flow

As of March 31, 2012, SouFun had cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments (excluding the effect from available-for-sale securities) of US$140.4 million, compared to US$158.3 million as of December 31, 2011, the decrease was primarily due to the dividends paid to shareholders in the first quarter of 2012.

Cash flow from operating activities was US$28.0 million for the first quarter of 2012, compared to US$34.6 million for the same period of 2011. The decrease was primarily due to less advances from customers.

Business Outlook

We maintain and are confident in our revenue guidance for fiscal year of 2012 to be between US$380.0 million and US$400.0 million, even though uncertainties remain in China’s property market.
