FOURTH QUARTER 2010 and FISCAL YEAR 2010 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2010 were US$14.0 million, representing an increase of 157.1% from US$5.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. The year-over-year increase was attributable to an increase of US$6.1 million in one-time commissions and an increase of US$2.5 million in recurring service fees.

Net revenues for the full year 2010 were US$37.9 million, representing an increase of 160.0% from US$14.6 million in the full year 2009. The year-over-year increase was attributable to an increase of US$17.8 million in one-time commissions and an increase of US$5.5 million in recurring service fees.

Net revenues from one-time commissions for the fourth quarter of 2010 were US$10.3 million, a year-over-year increase of 145.2% from US$4.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Net revenues from one-time commissions for the full year 2010 were US$29.2 million, a year-over-year increase of 155.6% from US$11.4 million in the full year 2009. The year-over-year increases in net revenues from one-time commissions for the fourth quarter of 2010 and fiscal year 2010 were primarily driven by increases in both the number of active clients and the average transaction value per client.

Net revenues from recurring service fees for the fourth quarter of 2010 were US$3.7 million, a year-over-year increase of 208.3% from US$1.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Net revenues from recurring service fees for the full year 2010 were US$8.6 million, a year-over-year increase of 176.2% from US$3.1 million in the full year 2009. The year-over-year increases in net revenues from recurring service fees for the fourth quarter of 2010 and fiscal year 2010 were mainly due to an increase in the transaction value of private equity fund products distributed.

Operating Margin

The Company’s operating margin for the fourth quarter was 43.4%, as compared to 39.2% in the fourth quarter of 2009. Operating margin for the full year 2010 was 41.4%, as compared to an operating margin of 32.1% for the full year 2009. The year-over-year operating margin improvements for the fourth quarter of 2010 and fiscal year 2010 were primarily due to the fact that the increase in net revenues outpaced that in the operating expenses, especially general and administrative (G&A) expenses, due to the efficiency resulted from economies of scale.

Operating cost and expenses for the fourth quarter of 2010, including cost of revenues, selling expenses, G&A expenses and other operating income, were US$7.9 million, a year-over-year increase of 139.1% from US$3.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Operating cost and expenses for the full year 2010 were US$22.2 million, up 124.4% from US$9.9 million in 2009.

Cost of revenues for the fourth quarter of 2010 totaled US$2.6 million, a year-over-year increase of 165.7% from US$1.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Cost of revenues for the full year 2010 totaled US$6.6 million, representing a 161.9% increase from US$2.5 million for the full year 2009. The year-over-year increases in the cost of revenues for the fourth quarter of 2010 and fiscal year 2010 were primarily due to an increase in compensation expenses paid to relationship managers.

Selling expenses for the fourth quarter of 2010 were US$3.5 million, a year-over-year increase of 213.1% from US$1.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Selling expenses as a percentage of net revenues for the quarter were 25.2%, representing an increase from 20.7% in the fourth quarter of 2009. Selling expenses were US$8.5 million in the full year 2010, an increase from US$3.2 million in the full year 2009. The year-over-year increases in selling expenses for the fourth quarter of 2010 and fiscal year 2010 were primarily due to increases in personnel expenses, client service expenses and rental expenses as a result of the Company’s network expansion.

G&A expenses for the fourth quarter of 2010 were US$1.8 million, a year-over-year increase of 45.3% from US$1.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. G&A expenses as a percentage of net revenues for the quarter were 13.1%, representing a decrease from 23.2% in the fourth quarter of 2009. G&A expenses for the full year 2010 were US$7.3 million, up 64.4% from US$4.4 million in the full year 2009. The year-over-year increases in G&A expenses for the fourth quarter of 2010 and fiscal year 2010 were primarily due to an increase in employee compensation expenses contributable to G&A expenses as a result of the expansion of the Company. An increase in share-based compensation expenses also contributed to the increase in G&A expenses in the full year 2010.

Gain (Loss) on Change in Fair Value of Derivative Liabilities

In the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company did not record any charge on change in fair value of derivative liabilities as it did in the fourth quarter of 2009, as the redemption provisions of series A preferred shares that had triggered the accounting treatment of derivative liabilities were modified in June 2010. The series A preferred shares were converted into ordinary shares upon the Company’s initial public offering, so there would be no such charge after the Company’s initial public offering. In the fourth quarter of 2009, a gain of US$0.3 million was recorded. The Company recorded a gain on change in fair value of derivative liabilities of US$0.4 million for the full year 2010, as compared to a loss on change in fair value of derivative liabilities of US$0.8 million for the full year 2009, primarily due to the fact that the likelihood of occurrence of an optional conversion or a change in control event was reduced with the approaching initial public offering.

Income Tax Expenses

Income tax expenses for the fourth quarter of 2010 were US$1.9 million, representing an increase of 359.8% from US$0.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to an increase in taxable income. In the fourth quarter of 2009, the Company recorded a gain on change in fair value of derivative liabilities in the amount of US$0.3 million, which was not taxable. This further reduced the taxable income in the fourth quarter of 2009.

Income tax expenses for the full year 2010 were US$4.8 million, an increase from US$0.6 million in 2009. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in taxable income. In fiscal year 2010, the Company did not benefit from any reversal of uncertain tax liabilities, which the Company recorded in the amount of US$0.8 million for the full year 2009. This further boosted the increase in income tax expenses on a year-over-year basis from 2009 to 2010.

Net Income

In the fourth quarter of 2010, net income attributable to Noah shareholders was US$4.2 million, a year-over-year increase of 88.9% from US$2.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Net margin for the fourth quarter of 2010 was 30.3%, a decrease from 41.3% in the fourth quarter of 2009. Non-GAAP net income attributable to Noah shareholders for the fourth quarter of 2010 was US$4.7 million, a year-over-year increase of 110.6% from US$2.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Non-GAAP net margin for the fourth quarter of 2010 was 33.3%, a decrease from 40.7% in the fourth quarter of 2009. The year-over-year decreases in net margin and non-GAAP net margin for the fourth quarter of 2010 were primarily due to an increase in income tax expenses and a decrease in investment income.

Income per basic and diluted ADS for the fourth quarter of 2010 were US$0.08, an increase from US$0.06 and US$0.04, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2009. Non-GAAP income per diluted ADS for the fourth quarter of 2010 was US$0.09, an increase from US$0.04 in the fourth quarter of 2009.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of December 31, 2010, the Company had US$133.3 million in cash and cash equivalents, an increase of US$111.5 million from US$21.8 million as of September 30, 2010. In the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company generated US$11.5 million from operating activities, invested US$4.4 million in fixed income products and used US$0.5 million to acquire property and equipment.

The Company received net proceeds of US$105 million as the result of its New York Stock Exchange listing completed on November 10, 2010.

FISCAL YEAR 2011 FORECAST

This estimate reflects management’s current business outlook and is subject to change.

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 Company removed the restrictions on such shares and revised the relevant provisions of the Company’s series A preferred shares that triggered the accounting treatment of derivative liabilities in June 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.
