Mr. William Li, chief executive officer and chairman of Bitauto said, "We are pleased to end 2016 with solid progress both in building out our platform for serving the entire auto purchase value chain in China and in driving synergies between our transaction services and media businesses. As a result, total revenue in 2016 grew 35.7% year-over-year with a 133.6% annual increase in transaction services for new and used cars. Combining Bitauto's clear leadership in transaction services with our robust media business, we aim to become the preferred platform for auto consumption in China."

"To achieve this goal, in 2017 we will focus on further enhancing our traffic, leads-to-transaction conversion rate, and monetization capabilities in both our media and transaction businesses. With regard to traffic, we will make efforts in branding and content to enhance user experience and stickiness, with a strong focus on the mobile end. To increase our conversion rate, we will roll out big data-driven marketing tools that are based on dynamic user behavior to help our customers target auto buyers more effectively, which will improve both user experience and our ability to earn media revenue. Lastly, in our transaction business, we will increase monetization by driving more multi-purpose transactions covering financing, insurance and trade-ins."

Mr. Andy Zhang, president of Bitauto, said, "As we execute our strategies for enhancing traffic, conversion and monetization, we will gain two significant competitive advantages. First is a platform effect that applies to both our media and transactions services businesses. On the media front, user stickiness will increase across our mobile, PC and partnering properties. In transaction services, our rapidly growing user base and value-added services will allow us to generate more revenue from third-party products, leading to more platform-derived revenue. The second competitive advantage will come from the application of big data , as we leverage China's most comprehensive, focused, and dynamic auto consumer information across our media and financial services businesses."

Ms. Cynthia He, chief financial officer of Bitauto, said, "Bitauto delivered solid results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2016. Looking ahead, we expect to see sustained strong revenue contribution from our transaction services business, as we benefit from our investments made in recent years in creating a financial services platform for new and used cars. With major investments in these areas behind us, in 2017 we will allocate more resources towards enhancing our user traffic and big data capabilities to drive further growth in both our advertising and subscription business and our transaction services business."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Bitauto's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, Bitauto uses Non-GAAP operating profit, Non-GAAP net profit and Non-GAAP basic and diluted net profit per ADS as non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP operating profit is defined as operating profit excluding (i) share-based payments; (ii) amortization of intangible assets resulting from asset and business acquisitions and (iii) assets write-down. Non-GAAP net profit is defined as net profit excluding (i) share-based payments; (ii) amortization of intangible assets resulting from asset and business acquisitions; (iii) assets write-down; (iv) fair value adjustment of contingent considerations; (v) share of amortization of equity investments' intangible assets not on their books; (vi) investment income associated with non-cash investment matters; and (vii) amortization of the BCF discount on the convertible notes. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net profit per ADS is defined as Non-GAAP net profit attributable to ordinary shareholders of the parent company divided by basic and diluted weighted average number of ADS. These non-GAAP financial measures provide Bitauto's management with the ability to assess its operating results by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of the performance of its business such as non-cash and non-recurring items. Bitauto believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors by understanding supplemental information used by management in its assessment of operating results.

The use of non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations. These non-GAAP measures exclude certain items that have been and will continue to be incurred in the future and are not reflected in the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and should not be considered a substitute for or superior to U.S. GAAP results. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures utilized by other companies since such other companies may not calculate such measures in the same manner as Bitauto does.

Reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure is set forth at the end of this release.
