Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results

For the third quarter of 2017, SINA reported net revenues of $443.1 million, an increase of 61% compared to $274.9 million for the same period last year. Non-GAAP net revenues for the third quarter of 2017 totaled $440.5 million, an increase of 62% compared to $272.3 million for the same period last year.

Online advertising revenues for the third quarter of 2017 were $364.0 million, an increase of 56% compared to $233.6 million for the same period last year. The year-over-year growth in online advertising revenues was mainly resulted from an increase of $120.1 million, or 77% growth in Weibo advertising and marketing revenues and a modest increase of portal advertising revenues in the third quarter.

Non-advertising revenues for the third quarter of 2017 were $79.2 million, an increase of 92% compared to $41.2 million for the same period last year. Non-GAAP non-advertising revenues for the third quarter of 2017 were $76.6 million, an increase of 98% compared to $38.6 million for the same period last year. The year-over-year growth in non-advertising revenues was driven by the new revenue stream derived from SINA online finance business, increased Weibo membership fees and revenue share from live broadcasting business.

Gross margin for the third quarter of 2017 was 76%, compared to 67% for the same period last year. Advertising gross margin for the third quarter of 2017 was 76%, compared to 70% for the same period last year. The increase in advertising gross margin was primarily due to stronger advertising demand from Weibo advertisers and the further operating leverage of Weibo business. Non-advertising gross margin for the third quarter of 2017 was 71%, compared to 54% for the same period last year. The increase in non-advertising margin was the result of higher revenue contribution from businesses with better margin profile compared with the same period last year, such as Weibo’s membership services and SINA’s online finance business.

Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2017 totaled $214.3 million, compared to $148.2 million for the same period last year. The increase in operating expenses was primarily attributable to an increase in sales and marketing expenses for user acquisition for both Weibo and SINA News APPs. Non-GAAP operating expenses for the third quarter of 2017 totaled $189.7 million, compared to $127.9 million for the same period last year.

Income from operations for the third quarter of 2017 was $120.3 million, an increase of 231% compared to $36.3 million for the same period last year. Operating margin was 27%, up from 13% for the same period last year. The increase in operating margin was a result of further operating leverage of Weibo business and step-up of margin profile from non-Weibo business. Non-GAAP income from operations for the third quarter of 2017 was $145.0 million, an increase of 157% compared to $56.5 million for the same period last year. Non-GAAP operating margin was 33%, up from 21% for the same period last year.

Non-operating income for the third quarter of 2017 was $11.1 million, compared to a non-operating income of $143.1 million for the same period last year. Non-operating income for the third quarter of 2017 mainly included: (i) a $10.2 million net gain on sale of and impairment on investments, net, which is excluded under our non-GAAP measure; (ii) a $11.1 million loss pick-up from equity-method investments, which is accounted for under the equity-method and reported one quarter in arrears, mainly resulting from the loss pick-up from the Company’s investment in Leju; and (iii) a $12.0 million net interest and other income. Non-operating income for the third quarter of 2016 included: (i) a $133.5 million net gain on sale of and impairment on investments, which is excluded under our non-GAAP measure; and (ii) a $5.5 million earnings pick-up from equity-method investments, which are accounted for under the equity-method and reported one quarter in arrears, mainly resulted from earnings pick-up from the Company’s investment in E-House.

Income tax expenses for the third quarter of 2017 were $24.6 million, compared to $19.1 million for the same period last year. The increase was primarily due to higher profitability and the change in tax status of the Weibo’s PRC subsidiary in 2017 from being fully tax exempted to being subject to a reduced enterprise income tax rate of 12.5%.

Net income attributable to SINA for the third quarter of 2017 was $49.3 million, compared to $146.5 million for the same period last year. Diluted net income per share attributable to SINA for the third quarter of 2017 was $0.66, compared to $1.90 for the same period last year. Non-GAAP net income attributable to SINA for the third quarter of 2017 was $57.7 million, compared to $43.7 million for the same period last year. Non-GAAP diluted net income per share attributable to SINA for the third quarter of 2017 was $0.77, compared to $0.56 for the same period last year.

As of September 30, 2017, SINA’s cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled $2.2 billion, compared to $1.8 billion as of December 31, 2016. For the third quarter of 2017, net cash provided by operating activities was $188.1 million, capital expenditures totaled $7.3 million, and depreciation and amortization expenses amounted to $8.7 million.

Weibo Completed Offering of US$900 Million Convertible Senior Notes

On October 30, 2017, Weibo completed the offering of $900 million in aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2022, including a fully-exercised over-allotment option of $100 million principal amount of notes that Weibo granted to the initial purchasers (the “Notes”). The Notes will bear annual interest at a rate of 1.25% per year, payable semiannually in arrears on May 15 and November 15 of each year, beginning on May 15, 2018. The Notes will be convertible into Weibo’s American Depositary Shares (“ADS”) based on an initial conversion price of approximately US$133.27 per ADS, which represents an approximately 47.5% conversion premium over the closing trading price of Weibo’s ADSs on October 25, 2017. The Notes will mature on November 15, 2022, unless previously repurchased, redeemed or converted in accordance with their terms prior to such date.

Non-GAAP Measures

This release contains the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP net revenues, non-GAAP non-advertising revenues, non-GAAP advertising and non-advertising gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to SINA and non-GAAP diluted net income (loss) per share attributable to SINA. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, measures of the Company’s financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures may be defined differently than similar terms used by other companies. Accordingly, care should be exercised in understanding how the Company defines its non-GAAP financial measures.

The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures exclude recognition of deferred revenues related to the license granted to Leju, stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, adjustment for non-GAAP to GAAP reconciling items on the share of equity method investments, gain(loss) on sale of investment/business, deemed disposal and impairment on investment, income tax effects of above non-GAAP to GAAP reconciling items and adjustment for non-GAAP to GAAP reconciling items for the income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests and amortization of convertible debt issuance cost. The Company’s management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in their financial and operating decision-making, because management believes these measures reflect the Company’s ongoing business operations in a manner that allows more meaningful period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others in the following ways: (i) in comparing the Company’s current financial results with the Company’s past financial results in a consistent manner, and (ii) in understanding and evaluating the Company’s current operating performance and future prospects in the same manner as management does, if they so choose. The Company also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gain/loss and other items (i) that are not expected to result in future cash payments or (ii) that are non-recurring in nature or may not be indicative of the Company’s core operating results and business outlook.

Use of non-GAAP financial measures has limitations. The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures do not include all income and expense items that affect the Company’s operations.  They may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Management compensates for these limitations by also considering the Company’s financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Reconciliations of the Company’s non-GAAP measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measures are set forth in the section below titled “Unaudited Reconciliation of Non-GAAP to GAAP Results.”

(b)  To exclude stock-based compensation.

(c)  To adjust amortization of intangible assets.

(d)  To exclude the Non-GAAP to GAAP reconciling items on the share of equity method investments, net of share of amortization of intangibles not on their books.

(e)  To exclude (gain) loss on sale of investments/business, (gain) loss on deemed disposal and impairment on investments, net.

(f)  To exclude the change in fair value of option liability.

(g)  To exclude Non-GAAP to GAAP reconciling items for the income attributable to non-controlling interests.

(h) To exclude the amortization of convertible debt issuance cost.

(i) To exclude the provision (benefit) for income tax related to item (c) and (e). Other non-GAAP to GAAP reconciling items have no income tax effect.**

Net income attributable to SINA is adjusted for diluted shares issued by our subsidiary and equity method investments.

**

Most of the reconciliation items were recorded in entities in tax free jurisdictions hence no income tax implications. For impairment on investments, valuation allowances were made for those differences the Company does not expect they can be realized in the foreseeable future.
