Mr. Zhengdong Zhu, Chairman and CEO of CDEL, said, "We are pleased to finish the fiscal year by exceeding our quarterly and full year guidance ranges, recording net revenue of $38.2 million in the fourth quarter and $117.5 million in fiscal 2016, representing year-over-year growth of 7.5% and 8.7%, respectively. Revenue growth from our accounting and engineering and construction verticals, books and reference materials and Xiamen NetinNet together contributed to our fourth quarter performance."

Mr. Zhu added, "In fiscal 2016, we made steady progress in our strategic growth initiatives, notably K-12 teacher continuing education, our Open Learning Platform, mobile related products, Big Data solutions, and our College Cooperation Program, as well as the acquisition of an 80% equity interest in Xiamen NetinNet and the successful listing and planned share issuance of our Zhengbao Yucai subsidiary on China's New Third Board. Heading into fiscal 2017, we look forward to executing our growth initiatives, while always being vigilant to acquisition and strategic investment opportunities, with the goal of continuing to drive shareholder value."

Mr. Zhu concluded, "We are pleased to report that in August 2016 we concluded our year-long share repurchase program and are happy to report that, during this period, the Company repurchased 3.1 million ADS in the open market for a consideration of the full authorization of $40.0 million. We are proud that our strong cash generating ability allows us to consistently hold true to our commitment to maximizing shareholder value."

Mr. Mark Marostica, Co-Chief Financial Officer of CDEL, said, "Better-than-expected fourth quarter revenue growth, coupled with continued disciplined financial management and diligent cost control contributed to fiscal year 2016 revenue growth of 8.7% year-over-year. Without the impact of the Renminbi depreciation against the U.S. Dollar, fiscal year 2016 revenue and non-GAAP operating income increased 14.2% and 13.8% year-over-year, respectively."

Mr. Marostica added, "Turning to organic growth, excluding both the operating results of Xiamen NetinNet and the impact of the Renminbi depreciation against the U.S. Dollar, fiscal year 2016 net revenue and non-GAAP operating income increased 11.2% and 16.2% year-over-year, respectively, and as a result, our fiscal year 2016 non-GAAP operating margin improved 118 basis points year-over-year. Looking ahead, we will continue to balance our efforts to drive growth with a keen focus on profitability and prudent cost controls."

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2016 Financial Results

Net Revenue. Total net revenue increased by 7.5% to $38.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 from $35.6 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. Net revenue from online education services, books and reference materials, and other sources contributed 79.6%, 7.2% and 13.2%, respectively, of total net revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016.

Online education services. Net revenue from online education services increased by 1.5% to $30.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 from $30.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, mainly due to revenue growth in core accounting test preparation courses, and accounting and engineering and construction ("E&C") continuing education courses. This increase was partially offset by decreased revenue in healthcare and E&C test preparation courses.

Books and reference materials. Net revenue from books and reference materials increased by 65.9% to $2.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, from $1.7 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015.

Others. Net revenue from other sources increased by 28.9% to $5.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 from $3.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, primarily due to the recently acquired Xiamen NetinNet business, which contributed revenue of $1.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. This increase was partially offset by decreased revenue from offline accounting training courses and business start-up training services.

Cost of Sales. Cost of sales increased by 9.3% to $13.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 from $12.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. Non-GAAP[1] cost of sales increased by 9.3% to $13.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 from $11.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. The increase was mainly due to increased salaries and related expenses, cost of books and reference materials, rental and related expenses, as well as expenses associated with Xiamen NetinNet. This increase was partially offset by decreased lecture fees.

Gross Profit. Gross profit increased by 6.5% to $25.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 from $23.6 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP[1] gross profit increased by 6.5% to $25.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 from $23.6 million in the prior year period. Gross margin was 65.8% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, compared with 66.4% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. Non-GAAP[1] gross margin was 65.9% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, compared with 66.5% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015.

Operating Expenses. Total operating expenses increased by 29.1% to $11.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, from $8.5 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP[1] total operating expenses increased by 30.7% to $10.6 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, from $8.1 million in the prior year period.

Selling expenses. Selling expenses increased by 42.4% to $6.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 from $4.3 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP[1] selling expenses increased by 42.6% to $6.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 from $4.3 million in the prior year period. The increase was primarily driven by increased salaries and related expenses, increased advertising and promotional expenses, and increased commissions to online agents, together with expenses associated with Xiamen NetinNet.

General and administrative expenses. General and administrative expenses increased by 15.3% to $4.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 from $4.2 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP[1] general and administrative expenses increased by 17.1% to $4.4 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 from $3.8 million in the prior year period. The increase was mainly due to increased salaries and related expenses, as well as expenses associated with Xiamen NetinNet.

Income Tax Expense. Income tax expense decreased by 13.1% to $2.7 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 from $3.1 million in the prior year period, primarily due to a decrease in taxable income.

Net Income. As a result of the foregoing, net income decreased by 9.5% to $12.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 from $13.5 million in the prior year period. Non-GAAP[1] net income decreased by 9.2% to $12.7 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 from $14.0 million in the prior year period.

Operating Cash Flow. Net operating cash inflow increased by 18.5% to $5.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 from $4.9 million in the prior year period. The operating cash inflow was mainly attributable to net income before non-cash items generated in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. The increase in accrued expenses and other liabilities, and income tax payable also contributed to the operating cash inflow. This operating cash inflow was partially offset by the increase in accounts receivable, other current assets, and decrease in deferred revenue.

Cash and Cash Equivalents, Term Deposits, Restricted Cash and Short-term Investments. Cash and cash equivalents, term deposits, restricted cash and short-term investments as of September 30, 2016 decreased by 2.0% to $70.5 million from $71.9 million as of June 30, 2016, mainly due to the repurchase of $4.2 million of ADSs on the open market, a long-term investment of $0.6 million, and capital expenditures of $1.8 million. This decrease was partially offset by cash flow of $5.8 million generated from operating activities in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016.

Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about the Company's beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements.

A number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement, including but not limited to the following: goals and growth strategies; future prospects and market acceptance of the Company's courses and other products and services; future business development and results of operations; projected revenues, profits, earnings and other estimated financial information; projected enrollment numbers; plans to expand and enhance courses and other products and services; competition in the education and test preparation markets; and Chinese laws, regulations and policies, including those applicable to the Internet, Internet content providers, the education and telecommunications industries, mergers and acquisitions, taxation and foreign exchange.

Statement Regarding Unaudited Financial Information

The unaudited financial information set forth in this press release is preliminary and subject to adjustments. Adjustments to the financial statements may be identified when audit work is performed for the year-end audit, which could result in significant differences from this preliminary unaudited financial information.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the Company uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP net income, operating income, gross profit, cost of sales, selling expenses, general and administrative expenses, net income margin, operating margin, gross profit margin and basic and diluted earnings per ADS and per share. 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 GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this release.

The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding share-based compensation expenses. However, non-GAAP financial measures may not be indicative of the Company's operating performance from a cash perspective. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing its performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to the Company's historical performance and liquidity. The Company 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. A limitation of excluding share-based compensation expenses from the above-mentioned line items and presenting these non-GAAP measures is that such charges may continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in our business. Management compensates for this limitation by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying table at the end of this release provides more detail on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.
