Total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2018 were RMB249.9 million (US$36.3 million)[1], representing a 20.8% increase over the fourth quarter 2017. The increase in the fourth quarter of 2018 was primarily attributable to the 199 F&M hotels net addition to our network during this quarter, the addition of a new L&O hotel and the conversion of three F&M to L&O hotels during last quarter, improved RevPAR for both F&M and L&O hotels as well as membership growth; and was partially offset by the renovation of six L&O hotels since last quarter and the conversion of one L&O to an F&M hotel during this quarter.

Total revenues for the full year 2018 were RMB945.0 million (US$137.4 million)[1], representing a 21.4% increase over full year 2017.

The 29.3% increase from the fourth quarter of 2017 in recurring franchisee management fees and others was primarily due to RevPAR growth of 2.3% as well as growth in membership fees, and central reservation system ("CRS") usage fees, annual IT, marketing fees, hotel manager fees, which in turn resulted from the increased number of hotels and hotel rooms in operation.
  • Total revenues from franchised-and-managed hotels for the full year 2018 were RMB731.8 million (US$106.4 million)[1], representing a 25.2% year-over-year increase.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We believe that Adjusted EBITDA and core net income, as we present it, is a useful financial metric to assess our operating and financial performance before the impact of investing and financing transactions, income taxes and certain non-core and non-recurring items in our financial statements.

The presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and core net income should not be construed as an indication that our future results will be unaffected by other charges and gains we consider to be outside the ordinary course of our business.

The use of Adjusted EBITDA and core net income has certain limitations because it does not reflect all items of income and expenses that affect our operations. Items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA and core net income are significant components in understanding and assessing our operating and financial performance. Depreciation and amortization expense for various long-term assets, income tax and share-based compensation 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 our results. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA and core net income does not consider capital expenditures and other investing activities and should not be considered as a measure of our liquidity. We compensate for these limitations by providing the relevant disclosure of our depreciation and amortization, interest expense/income, gains/losses from trading securities, income tax expenses, share-based compensation, share of loss in equity investees, government subsidies and other relevant items both in our reconciliations to the corresponding U.S. GAAP financial measures and in our consolidated financial statements, all of which should be considered when evaluating our performance.

The term Adjusted EBITDA and core net income is not defined under U.S. GAAP, and Adjusted EBITDA and core net income is not a measure of net income, operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. When assessing our operating and financial performance, you should not consider this data in isolation or as a substitute for our net income, operating income or any other operating performance measure that is calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, our Adjusted EBITDA and core net income may not be comparable to Adjusted EBITDA and core net income or similarly titled measures utilized by other companies since such other companies may not calculate Adjusted EBITDA and core net income in the same manner as we do.

Reconciliations of the Company's non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA and core net income, to the consolidated statement of operations information are included at the end of this press release.
