Other Businesses

Noah’s other businesses mainly include providing clients with additional comprehensive services and investment products. Operating results for other businesses also include headquarter rental income, depreciation and amortization, as well as operating expenses.

Ms. Jingbo Wang, co-founder and chairwoman of Noah, commented, “We made significant progress during this quarter in repositioning ourselves to drive growth in this challenging market environment. While sluggish domestic markets had a stronger-than-expected impact on our business during this quarter, we strategically used this window of opportunity to increase the pace of our overseas expansion as client demand for global asset allocation continues to grow. Excluding performance-based income, which was elevated due to the high base effect from the same period last year, net revenues from our overseas business increased 22.4% year-over-year. Transaction value from USD denominated products also increased significantly, as did the number of overseas registered and active clients, which increased 17.1% and 39.6% year-over-year, respectively. With these tailwinds, we are rapidly expanding our global offerings and expect to roll out new products originated from Japan and Dubai later this year. While we are still in the relatively early stages of our overseas expansion, these results have reinforced our confidence in our strategy going forward.”

DISCUSSION ON NON-GAAP MEASURES       

In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company’s earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures excluding the effects of all forms of share-based compensation and net of tax impact, if any. See “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results” at the end of this press release.

The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The financial results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP and reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be prepared differently from and, therefore, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

When evaluating the Company’s operating performance in the periods presented, management reviewed the foregoing non-GAAP net income attributable to Noah shareholders and per diluted ADS and non-GAAP net margin attributable to Noah shareholders to supplement U.S. GAAP financial data. As such, the Company’s management believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures provides important supplemental information to investors regarding financial and business trends relating to its results of operations in a manner consistent with that used by management.
