Total revenue for the third quarter 2016 decreased 9% to RMB33.0 million (US$4.9 million) from RMB36.1 million in the third quarter 2015.

Software revenue for the third quarter 2016 decreased 43% year-over-year to RMB7.6 million (US$1.1 million) from RMB13.3 million in the third quarter 2015. The decrease was primarily attributable to the continued reduction of new physical retail stores caused by current macro economic conditions.

Hardware revenue in the third quarter 2016 increased 205% year-over-year to RMB1.8 million (US$0.3 million) from RMB0.6 million in the third quarter 2015. The increase was primarily attributable to the completion of a one-off project in the logistics industry in the third quarter 2016.

Service fee revenue for the third quarter 2016 increased 6% year-over-year to RMB23.5 million (US$3.5 million) from RMB22.2 million in the third quarter 2015. The increase was primarily attributable to higher recurring maintenance service fee revenue in the third quarter 2016.

Cost of Revenue

Cost of revenue for the third quarter 2016 decreased 2% to RMB19.3 million (US$2.9 million) from RMB19.8 million in the third quarter 2015. The decrease in cost of revenue was in line with the decrease in total revenue.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit decreased by 17% year-over-year to RMB13.7 million (US$2.0 million) from RMB16.4 million in the third quarter 2015, and consolidated gross margin for the third quarter 2016 was 41%, compared to 45% for the third quarter 2015. The decrease was primarily due to decreases in the proportion of higher margin software revenue and increases in the proportion of lower margin hardware revenue in the third quarter 2016.

Operating Expenses

Research and development (“R&D”) expenses for the third quarter 2016 decreased 5% year-over-year to RMB2.7 million (US$0.4 million), or 8% of total revenue, compared with RMB2.8 million, or 8% of total revenue in the third quarter 2015 because of a modestly lower level of research and development.

General and administrative expenses (“G&A”) for the third quarter 2016 increased 9% year-over-year to RMB9.5 million (US$1.4 million), representing 29% of total revenue, compared with RMB8.7 million, or 24% of total revenue in the third quarter 2015. The increase in G&A expenses was primarily attributable to an increase of privatization related expenses in the third quarter 2016.

Selling and distribution (“S&D”) expenses for the third quarter 2016 decreased 22% year-over-year to RMB6.7 million (US$1.0 million), representing 20% of total revenue, compared with RMB8.6 million, or 24% of total revenue in the third quarter 2015. The decrease in S&D expenses was in line with the decrease in total revenue, especially software sales.

Operating Loss

Operating loss in the third quarter 2016 was RMB5.2 million (US$0.8 million), compared to operating loss of RMB3.7 million in the third quarter 2015.

Net Loss/Adjusted Net Loss and Loss Per Share/Adjusted Loss Per Share

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of September 30, 2016, cash and cash equivalents were RMB35.2 million (US$5.3 million), a decrease of RMB61.5 million from RMB96.7 million as of December 31, 2015, The decrease was primarily attributable to the payment of annual bonuses, taxes and proceeds from the exercise of stock options and restricted shares by employees.

Total accounts receivable as of September 30, 2016 decreased 31% to RMB37.5 million (US$5.6 million) from RMB54.7 million as of December 31, 2015. We made good progress in strengthening the management of accounts receivable.

Inventory and work in process as of September 30, 2016 increased 182% to RMB43.3 million (US$6.5 million) from RMB15.4 million as of December 31, 2015. The increase was primarily attributable to a significant number of on-going projects which had not reached the stage of revenue recognition.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2016, net cash used in operating activities was RMB2.5 million (US$0.4 million). Net cash provided by investing activities was RMB0.2 million (US$0.03 million). Net cash provided by financing activities was RMB0.7 million (US$0.1 million).

FOURTH QUARTER 2016 GUIDANCE

eFuture expects total revenue for the fourth quarter 2016 to be in the range of RMB93 million (US$13.9 million) to RMB100 million (US$15.0 million). Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter 2016 is expected to be in the range of RMB15 million (US$2.2 million) to RMB19 million (US$2.8 million).

TAX INSPECTION

As previously disclosed, the Beijing tax authority conducted a tax inspection on our wholly owned subsidiary, eFuture (Beijing) Royalstone Information Technology Inc. ("eFuture Beijing") for the period from 2004 to 2014 and took the position that eFuture Beijing failed, under local tax regulations, to recognize income and, therefore timely make the required tax payments, due to the timing difference between financial reporting and tax reporting regarding the realization of income from revenue and advance payments from customers. We received the decision from the Beijing tax authority on September 28, 2016, pursuant to which eFuture Beijing is required to pay what the tax authority deems to be the unpaid tax of RMB3,692,056.19 (approximately US$553,656) for the period between January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2014 and the late payment fee of RMB1,398,017.60 (approximately US$209,645). Since our previously filed U.S. financial statements have provided provisions for the unpaid taxes, our auditors have concluded that a restatement of financial statements is not required. We paid the unpaid tax and the late fee to Beijing tax authority on September 29, 2016. eFuture Beijing has taken several corrective measures, including personnel changes and staff training regarding Chinese tax law compliance, so that such taxes will be paid in a timely manner in the future.

CURRENCY CONVENIENCE TRANSLATION

For the convenience of readers, certain RMB amounts have been translated into US dollars at the rate of RMB6.6685 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate for US dollars in effect on September 30, 2016 for cable transfers of RMB per U.S. dollar as certified for customs purposes by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

To supplement eFuture’s unaudited consolidated financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, eFuture uses the following non-GAAP measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission: (i) adjusted EBITDA excluding amortization of acquired software technology, amortization of intangibles, impairment of intangible assets, share-based compensation expenses and depreciation; (ii) adjusted net income excluding amortization of acquired software technology, amortization of intangibles, impairment of intangible assets, share-based compensation expenses and accretion on convertible notes; and (iii) adjusted basic and diluted earnings per share excluding amortization of acquired software technology, amortization of intangibles, share-based compensation expenses and accretion on convertible notes.

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 U.S. GAAP.

eFuture believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective or be indicative of its operating performance. eFuture believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the Company’s performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management’s internal comparisons to eFuture’s historical performance and liquidity. eFuture 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. The accompanying paragraphs have more details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.

eFuture’s management also believes that EBITDA, defined as earnings before interest, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization is a useful financial metric to assess its operating and financial performance before the impact of investing and financing transactions and income taxes. In addition, eFuture’s management believes that EBITDA is widely used by other companies in the software industry and may be used by investors as a measure of its financial performance. Given the significant investments that eFuture has made in property, equipment, depreciation and amortization expense comprises a meaningful portion of the Company’s cost structure. eFuture’s management believes that EBITDA will provide investors with a useful tool for comparability between periods because it eliminates depreciation and amortization expense attributable to capital expenditures. The presentation of EBITDA should not be construed as an indication that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by other charges and gains eFuture considers to be outside the ordinary course of its business.

The use of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations. Depreciation and amortization expense for various long-term assets, income tax expense, interest expense and interest income have been and will be incurred and are not reflected in the presentation of EBITDA. Further, share-based compensation expenses 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 eFuture’s financial results. The term EBITDA or adjusted EBITDA is not defined under U.S. GAAP, and EBITDA or adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of net income, operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. When assessing eFuture’s operating and financial performance, you should not consider this data in isolation or as a substitute for its net income, operating income or any other operating performance measure that is calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, the Company’s EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to EBITDA or similarly titled measures utilized by other companies since such other companies may not calculate EBITDA in the same manner as eFuture does.
