Management Comments

"We are excited to report that revenues significantly exceeded the higher end of our guidance during the quarter," commented Mr. Michael Yao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of 58.com. "Among all our categories, jobs continued to deliver the fastest year-over-year growth and increasingly accounts for a larger proportion of total revenues. While the housing market in tier one and two cities remains relatively soft, revenues from our housing category continue to show resilience by performing better than expected. We are making solid progress in developing new and innovative products across various categories. Our mobile app traffic continues to grow rapidly and is accounting for a larger portion of our total traffic."

Mr. Hao Zhou, Chief Financial Officer of 58.com added, "We continued to see strong growth in revenue, traffic and margins during the quarter. We also recorded our highest ever quarterly operating margin, net margin and cash flow. This is directly attributable to our continuing focus on improving operational and marketing efficiencies. We continue to create new synergies as Ganji is further integrated and expect to see further opportunities to improve efficiency emerge as these synergies take hold."

Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Revenues

Total revenues were RMB2,593.3 million (US$382.8 million), representing an increase of 33.3% from RMB1,945.1 million in the same quarter of 2016.

Membership revenues were RMB963.7 million (US$142.3 million), an increase of 28.2% from RMB751.8 million in the same quarter of 2016. The increase in membership revenues was primarily driven by an increase in the number of subscription-based paying membership accounts. The total number of subscription-based paying membership accounts on the Company's platforms, which include 58.com, Ganji.com and Anjuke.com, was approximately 2,464,000 during the second quarter of 2017, a 24.8% increase from approximately 1,974,000 in the same quarter of 2016. 58.com defines subscription-based paying membership accounts as the registered accounts through which users have purchased the Company's membership subscriptions. The number of subscription-based paying membership accounts in a given period represents the paying merchant members whose membership subscriptions are in their service period at any point during the given period. Some paying merchant members purchase membership services from more than one Company platform which contributes separately to the revenues of each platform.

Online marketing services revenues were RMB1,536.5 million (US$226.8 million), an increase of 36.6% from RMB1,124.8 million in the same quarter of 2016.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues was RMB235.3 million (US$34.7 million), an increase of 47.6% from RMB159.4 million in the same quarter of 2016. The year-over-year increase in the Company's cost of revenues was primarily driven by increased traffic acquisition costs ("TAC") paid to the Company's advertising union partners as well as cost of used goods sold on the Zhuan Zhuan platform, which was partially offset by a reduction in other types of website maintenance-related costs such as SMS costs and bandwidth fees.

Within sales and marketing expenses, advertising expenses accounted for RMB521.7 million (US$77.0 million) and RMB420.1 million in the second quarter of 2017 and 2016, respectively. The increase was primarily due to an increase in advertising expenses associated with the promotion of the 58.com and Zhuan Zhuan brands, which were partially offset by a decrease in advertising spending on Ganji.

Other sales and marketing expenses in the second quarter of 2017 were RMB759.9 million (US$112.2 million), an increase of 4.8% from RMB725.0 million in the same quarter in 2016.

General and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2017 were RMB170.9 million (US$25.2 million), an increase of 11.7% from RMB153.0 million in the same quarter of 2016. The increase was primarily driven by an increase in depreciation expenses and other administrative related expenses.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures     

To supplement the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, this press release presents non-GAAP income/(loss) from operations, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to 58.com Inc., non-GAAP net margin and non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings/(loss) per share and per ADS by excluding share-based compensation expenses of the Company (net of the amount allocated to noncontrolling interests), amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisitions, share-based compensation expenses included in share of results of equity investees, loss on conversion of Guazi Convertible Note, gain on deconsolidation and disposal of business and income tax effects of above GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are important to help investors understand the Company's operating and financial performance, compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis and assess the Company's core operating results, as they exclude certain expenses that are not expected to result in cash payments.  The use of the above non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations. Share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisitions, non-cash gain or loss and income tax effects resulting from GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items have been and will continue to be incurred in the future and are not reflected in the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures, but should be considered in the overall evaluation of the Company's results. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing the relevant disclosure of its share-based compensation expenses of the Company (net of the amount allocated to noncontrolling interests), amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisitions, share-based compensation expenses included in share of results of equity investees, loss on conversion of Guazi Convertible Note, gain on deconsolidation and disposal of business and income tax effects of above GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company's performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is set forth at the end of this release.
