Fourth Quarter 2012 Financial Results

REVENUES: Net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased by 31.3% to RMB417.8 million (US$67.1 million) from RMB318.3 million in the comparative period in 2011.

Net revenues from hosting and related services increased by 44.6% to RMB253.4 million (US$40.7 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012 from RMB175.2 million in the comparative period in 2011, primarily due to an increase in the total number of cabinets under management in both the Company's self-built and partnered data centers. Net revenues from managed network services increased by 14.9% to RMB164.4 million (US$26.4 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012 from RMB143.0 million in the comparative period in 2011, primarily driven by an increase in network capacity demand for data transmission services.

GROSS PROFIT: For the fourth quarter of 2012, gross profit increased by 29.2% to RMB113.7 million (US$18.3 million) from RMB88.1 million in the comparative period in 2011. Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2012 remained stable at 27.2% compared with the comparative period in 2011.

Adjusted gross profit, which excludes share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets derived from acquisitions, increased by 28.5% to RMB123.3 million (US$19.8 million) from RMB96.0 million in the comparative period in 2011. Adjusted gross margin was 29.5% in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared with 30.2% in the comparative period in 2011.

OPERATING EXPENSES: Total operating expenses were RMB58.2 million (US$9.3 million), compared to RMB79.9 million in the comparative period in 2011.

Sales and marketing expenses increased to RMB31.6 million (US$5.1 million) from RMB25.5 million in the comparative period in 2011, primarily due to the expansion of the Company's sales and service support team.

General and administrative expenses increased to RMB49.4 million (US$7.9 million) from RMB24.4 million in the comparative period in 2011, primarily due to an increase in headcount, office rentals and other expansion related expenses.

Research and development expenses increased to RMB17.3 million (US$2.8 million) from RMB10.0 million in the comparative period in 2011, which reflected the Company's efforts to further strengthen its research and development capabilities and expand its cloud computing service offerings.

Change in the fair value of contingent purchase consideration payable was a gain of RMB40.1 million (US$6.4 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared with a loss in the change in fair value of contingent purchase consideration payable of RMB20.0 million in the prior year period. This non-cash gain was primarily due to a decrease in the market value of the Company's shares, which resulted in a decrease in the fair value of share-based contingent purchase considerations payable as of December 31, 2012 associated with the Company's acquisitions of the Managed Network Entities, Gehua and Fastweb.

Adjusted operating expenses, which exclude share-based compensation expenses and the changes in the fair value of contingent purchase consideration payable, increased to RMB77.5 million (US$12.4 million) from RMB50.0 million in the comparative period in 2011. As a percentage of net revenue, adjusted operating expenses were 18.5%, compared to 15.7% in the comparative period in 2011.

ADJUSTED EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased to RMB78.3 million (US$12.6 million) from RMB65.1 million in the comparative period in 2011. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the quarter was 18.7%, compared with 19.2% in the previous quarter and 20.5% in the comparative period in 2011. Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2012 excludes share-based compensation expenses of RMB22.4 million (US$3.6 million) and changes in the fair value of contingent purchase consideration payable of RMB40.1 million (US$6.4 million).

NET PROFIT/LOSS: Net profit for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased to RMB43.1 million (US$6.9 million), compared to RMB11.5 million in the comparative period in 2011.

Adjusted net profit for the fourth quarter of 2012 was RMB39.5 million (US$6.3 million), compared with RMB46.3 million in the comparative period in 2011. Adjusted net profit in the fourth quarter of 2012 excludes share-based compensation expenses of RMB22.4 million (US$3.6 million), amortization of intangible assets derived from acquisitions of RMB8.1 million (US$1.3 million), and changes in the fair value of contingent purchase consideration payable and related deferred tax impact of RMB34.1 million (US$5.5 million) in the aggregate. Adjusted net margin was 9.5%, compared to 14.6% in the comparative period in 2011. The decrease in adjusted net profit was primarily due to an increase in operating expenses, an increase in expenses associated with the Microsoft partnership, and a reduction in foreign exchange gain.

EARNING/LOSS PER SHARE: Diluted earnings per ordinary share for the fourth quarter of 2012 was RMB0.12, which represents the equivalent of RMB0.72 (US$0.12) per American Depositary Share ("ADS"). Each ADS represents six ordinary shares. Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2012 was RMB0.11, which represents the equivalent of RMB0.66 (US$0.11) per ADS. Adjusted earnings per share is calculated using adjusted net profit as discussed above to divide the weighted average shares number.

As of December 31, 2012, the Company had a total of 347.0 million ordinary shares outstanding, or the equivalent of 57.8 million ADSs.

BALANCE SHEET: As of December 31, 2012, the Company's cash and cash equivalents and short-term investment were RMB655.0 million (US$105.1 million), compared to RMB1.3 billion as of December 31, 2011.

Recent Developments

It will occupy a gross area of approximately 42,000 square meters (approximately 452,000 square feet) once fully completed. The first phase of this data center, which is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2013, will be capable of hosting more than 3,000 cabinets. At full capacity, the data center will host a total of over 5,000 cabinets. The data center will be wholly owned and operated by 21Vianet.
