EFuture Announces First Quarter 2013 Unaudited Financial Results

EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter 2013 was minus RMB5.3 million (US$0.8 million), compared to minus RMB1.3 million in the first quarter 2012.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of March 31, 2013, cash and cash equivalents were RMB43.6 million (US$7.0 million), a decrease of RMB35.8 million from RMB79.4 million as of December 31, 2012. The decrease was primarily attributable to the payment of annual bonuses and the expenditure on customer projects.

Total accounts receivable as of March 31, 2013 decreased 5.5% to RMB23.8 million (US$3.8 million) from RMB25.2 million as of December 31, 2012. The decrease was primarily attributable to the collection of trade receivables due from the projects completed in prior quarters.

Inventory and work in process as of March 31, 2013 increased 49.2% to RMB28.8 million (US$4.6 million) from RMB19.3 million as of December 31, 2012. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in the number of on-going projects which had not reached the point of revenue recognition.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2013, net cash used in operating activities was RMB31.8 million (US$5.1 million). Net cash used in investing activities was RMB3.9 million (US$0.6 million).

SECOND QUARTER 201 3 GUIDANCE

eFuture expects total revenue for the second quarter 2013 to be in the range of RMB43 million (US$6.9 million) to RMB48 million (US$7.7 million). Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter 2013 is expected to be in the range of minus RMB4.0 million (US$0.6 million) to breakeven.
