We have seen robust growth in our international schools, bilingual schools and kindergartens, as well as strong earnings performance, with our revenue increasing by 28.1% for our third fiscal quarter and 28.2% for the nine months. With the addition of one kindergarten since the IPO, we had over 30,000 students and over 3,000 teachers in 52 schools as of May 31, 2017."

"Our profits have significantly increased over the period, by 85.7%, supported by a strong margin expansion at 26.4%," Mr. He continued. "We have also improved utilization of our schools, and optimized fee levels across all segments."

"We have laid down growth strategies to deliver long-term success," Mr. He added. "We will continue to expand and enhance our school network nationwide through our partnership with real estate developer Country Garden Holdings Company Limited and other third-party developers, and deepen our cooperation with world-class institutions. We will enhance our complementary education programs—after school tutoring, summer and winter camps, test preparation and college counseling. We will also selectively explore local and overseas M&A opportunities. On this front, I am very pleased to announce our investment in Can-achieve (Beijing) Education Consultants Co., Ltd., which represents a major expansion in college counseling, student recruitment for universities, test preparation and study camps. Founded in 2008, Can-achieve has operations in Beijing, Guangzhou, Zhengzhou and Hong Kong, representing over 600 prestigious overseas universities, including 273 universities in the United States and Canada, where it has the largest market share in this segment, with 23 universities in the U.S. top 50/QS 100 rankings.

STATEMENT REGARDING UNAUDITED FINANCIAL INFORMATION

The unaudited financial information set forth above is subject to adjustments that may be identified when audit work is performed on the Company's year-end financial statements, which could result in significant differences from this unaudited financial information.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In evaluating our business, we consider and use certain non-GAAP measures, including primarily adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income/(loss), as supplemental measures to review and assess our operating performance. 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. We define adjusted EBITDA as income from operations (which excludes interest income, income tax benefit and expense and depreciation and amortization expenses) excluding share-based compensation expenses and adjusted net income/(loss) as net income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation expenses. We incurred share-based compensation in the 2016 fiscal year only, which was associated with the acquisition of Mr. Junli He's equity interests in Impetus in January 2016.

We present the non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by our management to evaluate our operating performance and formulate business plans. Such non-GAAP measures, including adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income/(loss), enable our management to assess our operating results without considering the impact of non-cash charges, including depreciation expenses and share-based compensation expenses, and without considering the impact of non-operating items such as interest income and income tax benefit and expenses. We also believe that the use of the non-GAAP measure facilitate investors' assessment of our operating performance.

The non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. One of the key limitations of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect our operations. Interest income, income tax benefit and expenses, depreciation expenses and share-based compensation expenses have been and may continue to be incurred in our business and are not reflected in the presentation of these non-GAAP measures, including adjusted EBITDA or adjusted net income/(loss). Further, these non-GAAP measures may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.
