Mr. Benson Wang, co-founder and chief executive officer of Taomee, stated, "We continue to be very proud of the performance of Taomee team. Our recent results demonstrate our ability to monetize our franchises across multiple platforms, whereby our online business is entering new period of growth and accelerated monetization, in parallel with our continued strong revenue growth of our offline investments. The fourth quarter is usually a slower season due to the seasonality of the school year in China. Even so, we achieved a 46.5% year-over-year increase in our total net revenues, which also beat the high end of our management outlook from last quarter."

"At the same time, we continue to invest in numerous strategic initiatives. A key tenet of our strategy has always been to grow our online businesses, and extend those brand recognitions into numerous adjacencies -- businesses that leverage off our brand loyalty that we have created in our online communities and push us into new, and very different, business categories. This is our competitive moat -- what differentiates us from our competitors -- because we believe we are unique in our ability to serve our customers in so many different ways. In 2013, we have witnessed double- and triple-digit growth in our offline businesses, primarily generated from toys and movies. At the same time, we are investing in television and mobile games, in order to enhance our brand loyalty and to find new monetization channels. We remain laser-focused on our core customers -- children, parents, teachers and other caregivers -- as we look for new and better ways to provide them with better services"

The quarter-over-quarter (QoQ) decrease was primarily due to the seasonality of fewer non-school days in the fourth quarter. The year-over-year (YoY) increase was driven by the continued revenue growth of our core virtual worlds as well as contribution from several newly launched franchises.

Net offline business revenues were US$2.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of 51.3% from US$5.5 million in the third quarter of 2013 and an increase of 123.9% from US$1.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. The QoQ decrease was primarily due to absence of new film release in the fourth quarter. The YoY increase was primarily due to the revenue contribution from the Company's interactive toys and merchandise licensing businesses.

Total cost of services was US$2.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of 35.5% from US$4.5 million in the third quarter of 2013 and an increase of 46.3% from US$2.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.

The QoQ decrease was primarily due to the decrease in bandwidth cost. The YoY increase was primarily due to the increase in bandwidth costs and fees related to our operation of certain third-party developed virtual worlds.

Offline business related costs were US$0.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of 63.6% from US$2.4 million in the third quarter of 2013 and an increase of 141.0% from US$0.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. The QoQ decrease was primarily due to the absence of new film release in the fourth quarter. The YoY increase was primarily attributable to the increase in costs related to our interactive toy business.

The YoY increase was primarily due to an increase in payroll expense, share-based compensation and outsourcing costs.
  • Sales and marketing expenses were US$2.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of 17.6% from US$2.9 million in the third quarter of 2013 and an increase of 16.7% from US$2.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. The QoQ decrease was primarily due to absence of Seer III film promotion costs, which occurred in the third quarter of 2013. The YoY increase was primarily due to an increase in payroll expenses.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, this press release presents non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company's shareholders and non-GAAP earnings per ADS by excluding share-based compensation and impairment charges from net income attributable to the Company's shareholders and from the calculation of earnings per ADS. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are important to help investors understand the Company's operating and financial performance compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis and assess the Company's core operating results. The use of the above non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations. Share-based compensation charge has been and will continue to be incurred and is not reflected in the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures; it should be considered in the overall evaluation of our results. None of the non-GAAP measures is a measure of net income attributable to the Company's shareholders, operating profit, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. We compensate for these limitations by providing the relevant disclosure of our share-based compensation and impairment charges in our reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which should be considered when evaluating our performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is set forth at the end of this release.
