  • Net loss was RMB0.5 million (US$0.1 million), compared with a net loss of RMB5.5 million in the second quarter 2011.

Mr. Adam Yan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of eFuture, commented on the results. "We are very pleased with our solid financial performance recorded in the second quarter. This was a particularly strong second quarter, recording a 47% year-over-year revenue growth and an improvement in our gross margin. This improvement was the result of strategies initiated by management last year, which included an effort to optimize the restructuring of our product mix with a higher portion of recurring revenue to minimize the effects of seasonality and a series of operational initiatives designed to enhance our ability to increase profitability."

"Service fee income increased 52% year-over-year, driven by income from our IT maintenance services and demand for our customized IT solutions. We are also pleased to see an increase in spending from our existing clients, a testament to our enhanced team structure that brings consistently higher value. Our software sales also grew 105% year-over-year due to the completion of one-off projects during the quarter."

Mr. Yan concluded, "We are starting to see our clients facing greater challenges due to their reliance on the growth of the consumer market, an environment which is currently slowing down. These market pressures have delayed our clients' new shop opening schedules, which in turn lowers the expectation for our software licensing sales in the later part of the year. Overall, we are encouraged to see an improvement in our revenue distribution and a higher level of client confidence in eFuture. We remain optimistic that our strong products and services portfolio is well-positioned in the current market."

Mr. Sean Zheng, Chief Financial Officer, added, "While the results for this second quarter are indeed promising, the major restructuring initiatives implemented at the end of last year were designed for eFuture's long-term growth. Going forward into 2012, we plan to continue to seize market opportunities through our expanded team capacity while remaining focused on building a competitive cost structure to further improve our bottom-line results."

"Not only have we established various mechanisms to assess the contract prior to signing and optimize project profitability, with these operational initiatives in place, we are confident that the continued execution of our growth strategies is expected to allow us to achieve our sales goal whilst strengthening our financial position in the long run."

SECOND QUARTER 2012 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Revenue

Total revenue for the second quarter 2012 increased 47% to RMB39.3 million (US$6.2 million) from RMB26.7 million in the second quarter 2011.
Revenue Breakdown
  2Q11 2Q12
  RMB '000 RMB '000 USD '000 Y-o-Y % Change
Software license sales 7,576 15,548 2,447 105
Hardware sales 5,570 3,197 503 (43)
Service fee income 13,525 20,576 3,239 52
Total 26,671 39,321 6,189 47

Software license revenue for the second quarter 2012 increased 105% year-over-year to RMB15.5 million (US$2.4 million), primarily attributable to the completion of some large projects in the grocery and logistics industries that came from the backlog of software contracts, and could be recognized in the second quarter 2012.

Hardware revenue in the second quarter 2012 decreased 43% year-over-year to RMB3.2 million (US$0.5 million) from RMB5.6 million in the second quarter 2011. The year-over-year decrease was due to the recording of a one-off large contract in the same period last year.

Service fee income for the second quarter 2012 increased 52% year-over-year to RMB20.6 million (US$3.2 million) from RMB13.5 million in the second quarter 2011, which was primarily attributable to a strong sales performance from delivery and maintenance services in the department store and grocery industries in the second quarter 2012.

Cost of Revenue

Cost of revenue for the second quarter 2012 increased 39% to RMB25.4 million (US$4.0 million) from RMB18.3 million in the second quarter 2011.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit increased 66%year-over-year to RMB13.9 million (US$2.2 million) from RMB8.4 million in the second quarter 2011, and consolidated gross margin for the second quarter 2012 was 35%, compared with 31% in the second quarter 2011. The improvement in gross margin was mainly due to an increase in sales and a result of the establishment of profitability assessment mechanisms to ensure the profitability of projects before the contract is signed with clients.

Operating Expenses

Research and development ("R&D") expenses for the second quarter 2012 increased 31% year-over-year to RMB1.3 million (US$0.2 million), or 3% of total revenue, compared with RMB1.0 million, or 4% of total revenue in the second quarter 2011. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase of share-based compensation expenses, as a new grant under the share incentive plan started its vesting period in the second quarter 2012.

General and administrative expenses ("G&A") for the second quarter 2012 decreased 16% year-over-year to RMB8.7 million (US$1.4 million), representing 22% of total revenue, compared with RMB10.4 million, or 39% of total revenue in the second quarter 2011. The decrease was primarily attributable to a reclassification of some branch office expenditures as an item that falls under the cost of sales and selling expenses lines. This reclassification is a result of the change of function of those offices in 2012.  

Selling and distribution ("S&D") expenses for the second quarter 2012 increased 130% year-over-year to RMB9.3 million (US$1.5 million), representing 24% of total revenue, compared with RMB4.0 million, or 15% of total revenue in the second quarter 2011. This was primarily attributable to the rise of sales commissions as sales increased during the second quarter 2012.

Operating Loss

Operating loss in the second quarter 2012 was RMB5.4 million (US$0.8 million), compared with an operating loss of RMB7.1 million in the second quarter 2011.

Net Loss /Income and Loss Per Share

As a result of the aforementioned loss, second quarter 2012 net loss was RMB0.5 million (US$0.1 million), compared with a net loss of RMB5.5 million in the second quarter 2011. Adjusted net income for the second quarter 2012 was RMB4.3 million (US$0.7 million), compared with an adjusted net loss of RMB1.3 million in the second quarter 2011.

Basic and diluted loss per share in the second quarter 2012 was RMB0.12 (US$0.02), compared to basic and diluted loss per share of RMB1.33 in the second quarter 2011. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was RMB1.02 (US$0.16), compared to an adjusted diluted loss per share of RMB0.32 in the second quarter 2011.

EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter 2012 was minus RMB21,793 (US$3,430), compared to adjusted EBITDA of minus RMB2.6 million in the second quarter 2011.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of June 30, 2012, cash and cash equivalents amounted to RMB32.2 million (US$5.1 million), a decrease of RMB25.0 million from RMB57.2 million as of December 31, 2011. The decrease was primarily attributable to the payment of annual bonuses for 2011 and the expenditures on customization projects and capitalized R&D projects.

Total accounts receivable as of June 30, 2012 increased 12% to RMB22.3 million (US$3.5 million) from RMB19.9 million as of December 31, 2011. The increase was primarily attributable to the increase of revenue recognition from some large contracts in the second quarter 2012.

Inventory and work in process as of June 30, 2012 increased 14% to RMB31.9 million (US$5.0 million) from RMB28.0 million as of December 31, 2011. The increase was primarily attributable to our continuous expenditures on customization projects driven by strong customer demand.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2012, net cash provided by operating activities was RMB3.4 million (US$0.5 million). Net cash used in investing activities was RMB4.0 million (US$0.6 million).

Share Repurchase Program

On December 22, 2011, the Company announced a share repurchase program to repurchase up to US$2 million worth of its ordinary shares over the next 12 months. During the second quarter of 2012, eFuture repurchased approximately 37,000 shares with an average price of US$4.04 per share.

THIRD QUARTER 2012 GUIDANCE

eFuture expects total revenue for the third quarter 2012 to be in the range of RMB35.0 million (US$5.5 million) to RMB40.0 million (US$6.3 million). Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter 2012 is expected to be in the range of breakeven to loss RMB2.0 million (US$0.3 million).

CURRENCY CONVENIENCE TRANSLATION

For the convenience of readers, certain RMB amounts have been translated into US dollars at the rate of RMB6.3530 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate for US dollars in effect on June 30, 2012 for cable transfers of RMB per U.S. dollar as certified for customs purposes by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

To supplement eFuture's unaudited consolidated financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, eFuture uses the following non-GAAP measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission: (i) adjusted EBITDA excluding amortization of acquired software technology, amortization of intangibles, impairment of intangible assets, share-based compensation expenses and depreciation; (ii) adjusted net income excluding amortization of acquired software technology, amortization of intangibles, impairment of intangible assets, share-based compensation expenses and accretion on convertible notes; and (iii) adjusted basic and diluted earnings per share excluding amortization of acquired software technology, amortization of intangibles, share-based compensation expenses and accretion on convertible notes.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

eFuture believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective or be indicative of its operating performance. eFuture believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the Company's performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to eFuture's historical performance and liquidity. eFuture computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. The accompanying paragraphs have more details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.

eFuture's management also believes that EBITDA, defined as earnings before interest, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization is a useful financial metric to assess its operating and financial performance before the impact of investing and financing transactions and income taxes. In addition, eFuture's management believes that EBITDA is widely used by other companies in the software industry and may be used by investors as a measure of its financial performance. Given the significant investments that eFuture has made in property, equipment, depreciation and amortization expense comprises a meaningful portion of the Company's cost structure. eFuture's management believes that EBITDA will provide investors with a useful tool for comparability between periods because it eliminates depreciation and amortization expense attributable to capital expenditures. The presentation of EBITDA should not be construed as an indication that the Company's future results will be unaffected by other charges and gains eFuture considers to be outside the ordinary course of its business.

The use of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations. Depreciation and amortization expense for various long-term assets, income tax expense, interest expense and interest income have been and will be incurred and are not reflected in the presentation of EBITDA. Further, share-based compensation expenses have been and will be incurred and are not reflected in the presentation of adjusted EBITDA. Each of these items should also be considered in the overall evaluation of eFuture's financial results. The term EBITDA or adjusted EBITDA is not defined under U.S. GAAP, and EBITDA or adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of net income, operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. When assessing eFuture's operating and financial performance, you should not consider this data in isolation or as a substitute for its net income, operating income or any other operating performance measure that is calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, the Company's EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to EBITDA or similarly titled measures utilized by other companies since such other companies may not calculate EBITDA in the same manner as eFuture does.
