"Our personalized matchmaking business continued its run of strong growth, increasing 179.0% year-over-year. The Chinese New Year holiday fell later than usual during the quarter which temporarily affected online user numbers and revenue generation, particularly in online services.

Qiuai.com in particular is performing well, and is expected to contribute to our bottom line starting next quarter."

Mr. Shang Koo, Chief Financial Officer of Jiayuan added, "Net loss for this quarter decreased significantly on a year-over-year basis as a result of lower selling and marketing expenses during the quarter as we started to focus on profitability in March. Growth will continue to come from our personalized matchmaking business as we continue to scale this business and focus on same store sales growth which increased over 40% in the quarter."   

First Quarter 2015 Operational Results

The number of average monthly active user accounts[3]was 5,155,338, compared with 5,399,646 for the corresponding period of 2014.

The number of average monthly paying user accounts[4] was 1,497,987, compared with 1,452,377 for the corresponding period of 2014.

Average monthly revenue per paying user ("ARPU") for online services was RMB21.0, compared with RMB23.9 for the corresponding period in 2014.

First Quarter 2015 Financial Results

Jiayuan reported net revenues of RMB169.4 million (US$27.3 million) for the first quarter of 2015, representing a year-over-year increase of 26.1% from RMB134.3 million and a 2.0% sequential decrease from RMB172.8 million. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to the rapid expansion of personalized matchmaking services. The slight sequential decrease was primarily attributable to the decrease in online services and events and others.

  • Online services contributed RMB101.6 million (US$16.4 million), or 60.0% of net revenues during the first quarter of 2015, representing a year-over-year decrease of 5.2% from RMB107.1 million, and a sequential decrease of 3.6% from RMB105.4 million in the previous quarter. The year-over-year and sequential decreases were mainly attributable to the decrease in ARPU resulting from the Company's shift towards mobile and mobile users prefer micro payments as well as the later-than-usual rebound in user activity due to Chinese New Year falling later in the calendar year.
  • Personalized matchmaking services contributed RMB62.5 million (US$10.1 million), or 36.9% of net revenues during the first quarter of 2015, representing a year-over-year increase of 179.0% from RMB22.4 million, and a quarter-over-quarter increase of 4.1% from RMB60.0 million. The year-over-year and sequential increases were a result of the expanded number of service locations and cities in which the Company offers personalized matchmaking services, as well as sales growth of existing service locations.
  • Events and others contributed RMB5.3 million (US$852,000), or 3.1% of net revenues during the first quarter of 2015, representing a year-over-year increase of 10.1% from RMB4.8 million, and a quarter-over-quarter decrease of 28.5% from RMB7.4 million. The year-over-year increase was mainly attributable to the increase in the advertisements placed on the Company's website. The sequential decrease was primarily a result of the seasonal decline in the number of events held.

Cost of revenues for the first quarter of 2015 was RMB88.0 million (US$14.2 million), representing a year-over-year increase of 65.3% from RMB 53.2 million, and a slight increase of 1.4% from RMB86.7 million in the previous quarter. Both the year-over-year and sequential increases were primarily due to increased investment in personalized matchmaking services in-line with the business segment's revenue growth.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2015 was RMB81.4 million (US$13.1 million), representing a year-over-year increase of 0.4% from RMB81.1 million, and a decrease of 5.5% from RMB86.1 million for the previous quarter.

Selling and marketing expenses were RMB74.9 million (US$12.1 million) for the first quarter of 2015, representing a year-over-year decrease of 9.8% from RMB83.0 million, and a 51.8% sequential increase from RMB49.3 million. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to the Company's focus on selling and marketing channels that generate higher rates of return on investment during the quarter. The sequential increase was primarily due to the launch of a TV brand advertising campaign during the February 2015 Chinese New Year holiday.

General and administrative expenses were RMB15.3 million (US$2.5 million) during the first quarter of 2015, representing a year-over-year increase of 14.9% from RMB13.3 million and a sequential decrease of 1.1% from RMB15.5 million. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to increases in human resource costs and a one-time cost related to the disposal of certain equipment during the quarter. The sequential decrease was primarily due to the decline in employee stock option expenses.

Research and development expenses were RMB6.4 million (US$1.0 million) during the first quarter of 2015, representing a year-over-year increase of 17.3% from RMB5.5 million, and a quarter-over-quarter decrease of 5.3% from RMB6.8 million. The year-over-year increase was a result of the growth in the number of research and development personnel in connection with Jiayuan's focus on improving user experience and mobile expansion. The sequential decrease was primarily due to the decline in employee stock option expenses.

Operating loss during the first quarter of 2015 was RMB15.2 million (US$2.5 million), compared with operating loss of RMB20.7 million for the corresponding quarter of 2014, and operating income of RMB14.5 million in the previous quarter. The operating loss was due to the increase in operating expenses associated with the advertising campaign the Company launched during the 2015 Chinese New Year holiday. Excluding share-based compensation expenses and professional fees related to the review and evaluation by the special committee of the Company's Board of Directors (the "Special Committee") of certain non-binding proposals regarding a potential transaction regarding the Company as previously announced, non-GAAP operating loss for the first quarter of 2015 was RMB12.1 million (US$2.0 million), compared with non-GAAP operating loss of RMB19.0 million for the corresponding quarter of 2014, and non-GAAP operating income of RMB19.1 million for the previous quarter.

Foreign currency exchange net loss for the first quarter of 2015 was RMB269,000 (US$43,000), compared with a foreign currency exchange net loss of RMB1.3 million for the corresponding quarter of 2014 and a foreign currency exchange net gain of RMB242,000 for the previous quarter. The foreign currency exchange net loss for the first quarter of 2015 was mainly attributable to the exchange loss from the conversion between U.S. dollar and Chinese Yuan during the period.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2015 was RMB10.2 million (US$1.6 million), compared with net loss of RMB13.9 million for the corresponding quarter of 2014, and net income of RMB19.2 million for the previous quarter.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We disclose non-GAAP financial measures of operating income, net income and net income per ADS, each of which is adjusted to exclude share-based compensation expense and professional fees related to the review and evaluation by the Special Committee of certain non-binding proposals regarding a potential transaction regarding the Company as previously announced. We review non-GAAP financial measures to obtain an additional understanding of our operating performance. We also believe it is useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess our operating performance without the effect of non-cash share-based compensation expense, which have been and will continue to be significant recurring expenses in our business and professional fees related to the review and evaluation by the Special Committee of certain non-binding proposals regarding a potential transaction regarding the Company as previously announced which are not relevant to our operational activities. For a reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see "Reconciliation To Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income" included in this press release.

However, the use of non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures is that it does not include all items that impact our non-GAAP financial measures during the period. In addition, because non-GAAP financial measures are not calculated in the same manner by all companies, it may not be comparable to other similar titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from or as an alternative to GAAP financial measures. Management compensates for this limitation by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amount excluded from the non-GAAP measure.
