"We are pleased to report a stellar quarter with outperformance on our revenue guidance and strong profitability, resulting from higher-than-expected enrollment growth and center utilization. Net revenue of US$73.5 million came in US$2.5 million above the top end of our guidance. Revenue growth was supported by a 46.2% increase in enrollments. Our execution on the top line was better than expected as cities outside Beijing and Shanghai continued to outperform and contributed 40% of our total small class revenue, while at the same time Shanghai once again performed well and Beijing began to show signs of recovery," said TAL's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Bangxin Zhang.

"Given our healthy business fundamentals, we are ready to lead the business into newly evolving growth opportunities in the market. Consumer behavior on Internet and mobile, education reform, and the changing needs of the labor market in China are revolutionizing the ways in which students learn in and around school. With our recent launch of the ICS 3.0 version that creates an upgraded interactive white board and pad-based environment in the classroom, we are bringing class-based tutoring to a new level. In addition, we see a host of new opportunities in terms of expanding addressable markets, widening the range of subjects and introducing new tutoring formats."

Mr. Joseph Kauffman, Chief Financial Officer, continued, "Our top line growth and effective cost control resulted in the strong bottom line in the third quarter. We were able to keep the costs of business expansion well under control as we tempered the pace of center and classroom capacity expansion as guided. Other factors contributing to gross margin strength in this quarter were improved center utilization and changing business mix as small class continued to grow faster than our one-on-one business. We expect small class to remain our key growth driver in coming quarters." 

"Our expectation for the fourth quarter is strong as we see the positive momentum to continue and cap a remarkable year of growth, business expansion and profitability. The fourth quarter outlook looks particularly high on a year-on-year basis because it will cycle a low quarter and include an extra week of classes due to the timing of Chinese New Year."

Financial Results for the Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2014

Net Revenues
In the third quarter of fiscal year 2014, TAL reported net revenues of US$73.5 million, representing a 50.4% increase from US$48.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013. The increase was mainly driven by an increased number of total student enrollments combined with increased average selling prices (ASPs). Total student enrollments increased by 46.2% to approximately 224,810 from approximately 153,800 in the same period one year ago. The increase in total student enrollments was driven primarily by increases of enrollments in the small class offerings. ASP increased by 2.8% from US$318 in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 to US$327 in the same quarter of fiscal year 2014. The growth in ASP was mainly driven by the hourly rate increases of a portion of the small class course offerings and the foreign exchange rate fluctuation.

Operating Costs and Expenses
Operating costs and expenses were US$62.5 million, a 34.5% increase from US$46.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013. Non-GAAP operating costs and expenses, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, were US$60.4 million, a 36.7% increase from US$44.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Cost of revenues increased by 34.1% to US$35.9 million, from US$26.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013. The increase in cost of revenues was mainly due to an increase in teacher compensation, rental costs and other staff costs associated primarily with an expansion of learning center capacity as well as increases in wages and teacher fees. Non-GAAP cost of revenues, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 34.2% to US$35.9 million, from US$26.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Selling and marketing expenses increased by 34.8% to US$9.3 million, from US$6.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013. Non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 40.0% to US$9.0 million, from US$6.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013. The increase of selling and marketing expenses in the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 was primarily a result of an increase in compensation to sales and marketing staff to support a greater number of programs and service offerings.

General and administrative expenses increased by 35.2% to US$17.3 million, from US$12.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013. The increase in general and administrative expenses was mainly due to an increase in compensation to our general and administrative personnel in recognition of outperformance against budget and to support a greater number of programs and service offerings. Also, the depreciation of the Beijing office space was an expense the Company incurred this quarter but not in the same period of the previous year. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 41.0% to US$15.5 million, from US$11.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Total share-based compensation expenses allocated to the related operating costs and expenses decreased by 8.3% to US$2.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2014, from US$2.3 million in the same period of fiscal year 2013.

Gross Profit
Gross profit increased by 69.9% to US$37.7 million, from US$22.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Income from Operations
Income from operations increased by 287.5% to US$11.9 million, from US$3.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013. Non-GAAP income from operations, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 162.3% to US$14.0 million, from US$5.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Other Income /(Expense)
Other expense was US$51 thousand for the third quarter of fiscal year 2014, compared to other income of US$1.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013. Other expense in this quarter was mainly due to the Company's donation to the TAL Charitable Foundation, which was created in order to support the Company's corporate social responsibility initiatives. The other income in the same period of the previous fiscal year was primarily driven by exchange gains. As the Company holds the vast majority of its cash balance in RMB and reports in US Dollars, it benefits from exchange gains in times of relative strength of the RMB and incurs exchange losses in times of relative strength of the US Dollar.

Income Tax Expense
Income tax expense was US$1.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2014, as compared to US$0.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Net Income Attributable to TAL Education Group
Net income attributable to TAL increased by 123.4% to US$12.5 million, from US$5.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013. Non-GAAP net income attributable to TAL, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 85.6% to US$14.6 million, from US$7.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Basic and Diluted Net Income per ADS
Basic and diluted net income per ADS were US$0.16 and US$0.15, respectively, in the third quarter of fiscal year 2014. Non-GAAP basic and Non-GAAP diluted net income per ADS, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, were US$0.19 and US$0.18, respectively.

Capital Expenditures
Capital expenditures for the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 were US$3.3 million, representing an increase of US$2.0 million from US$1.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013. The increase was mainly due to leasehold improvements, and the purchase of servers, computers, software systems and other hardware, for the Company's teaching facilities.

Cash, Cash Equivalents, and Term Deposits
As of November 30, 2013, the Company had US$304.0 million of cash and cash equivalents and US$29.2 million of term deposits, as compared to US$185.1 million of cash and cash equivalents and US$24.1 million of term deposits as of February 28, 2013.

Deferred Revenue
As of November 30, 2013, the Company's deferred revenue balance was US$173.0 million as compared to US$107.3 million as of November 30, 2012, representing a year-over-year increase of 61.2%.

Business Outlook
Based on the Company's current estimates, total net revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014 are expected to be between US$84.7 million and US$87.1 million, representing an increase of 42% to 46% on a year-over-year basis.

For the fiscal year ending February 28, 2014, the Company expects total net revenues to be in the estimated range of US$311.6 million to US$314.0 million, representing an increase of 37.9% to 39.0% year-over-year.

These estimates reflect the Company's current expectation, which is subject to change.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating its business, TAL considers and uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC as supplemental metrics to review and assess its operating performance: non-GAAP operating costs and expenses, non-GAAP cost of revenues, non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income attributable to TAL, non-GAAP basic and non-GAAP diluted net income per ADS. To present each of these non-GAAP measures, the Company excludes share-based compensation expenses. 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 the most comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this release.

TAL believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding share-based expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. TAL 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 TAL's historical performance and liquidity. TAL computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter and from period to period. TAL 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 using non-GAAP measures is that these non-GAAP measures exclude share-based compensation charges that have been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in the Company's business. Management compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying tables have more details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.

For years the world's most security-focused and distributed organizations - banks, military/defense agencies, global enterprises - have sought to adopt cloud technologies that can reduce costs, future-proof against data growth, and improve user productivity. The challenges of cloud transformation for these kinds of secure organizations have centered around data security, migration from legacy systems, and performance. In our presentation, we will discuss the notion that cloud computing, properl...
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
