ATA Reports Fiscal 2017 Second Quarter Financial Results

Company to Hold Conference Call on Thursday, November 10, 2016, at 8 a.m. ET

BEIJING, CHINA and NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 9, 2016) - ATA Inc. ("ATA" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ATAI), a leading provider of advanced testing technologies and testing-related services in China, today announced unaudited financial results for its fiscal second quarter ended September 30, 2016 ("Second Quarter 2017").

Second Quarter 2017 Financial and Operating Highlights (percentage changes and comparisons against fiscal Second Quarter September 30, 2015 ("Second Quarter 2016"))

  • Net revenues increased 21.9% to RMB65.1 million (US$9.8 million), compared to RMB53.4 million, primarily as a result of the growth of existing exams such as Fund Practitioners Certification Exam, and new exams such as the Qualification Exam for Housing and Urban-Rural Construction Field Professionals, despite the loss of revenue contributions from the Securities Association of China ("SAC") exam.
  • Gross profit increased 21.2% to RMB29.6 million (US$4.4 million), compared to RMB24.4 million.
  • Loss from operations of RMB9.3 million (US$1.4 million), compared to RMB12.2 million.
  • Net loss of RMB35.6 million (US$5.3 million), compared to RMB14.1 million. The net loss increase was primarily due to an impairment loss of RMB21.9 million related to a previously announced equity method investment in an associated company, a provider of digitized services to K-12 after-school tutoring institutions in China.
  • Adjusted net loss excluding share-based compensation expense and foreign currency exchange loss (non-GAAP) of RMB34.6 million (US$5.2 million), compared to RMB10.7 million.
  • Basic and diluted losses per ADS were both RMB1.56 (US$0.24). Basic and diluted losses per ADS excluding share-based compensation expense and foreign currency exchange loss (non-GAAP) for Second Quarter 2017 were both RMB1.50 (US$0.22).
  • Delivered approximately 1.8 million billable tests, compared to 1.7 million billable tests.
  • RMB119.8 million (US$18.0 million) in cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2016.

Fiscal Year 2017 Outlook

  • For the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017 ("Fiscal Year 2017"), ATA is raising its expectations for net revenues to between RMB455.0 million and RMB475.0 million, from the previously provided outlook of between RMB420.0 million and RMB440.0 million. The increase is based on the better than anticipated Fiscal Year 2017 first half results and a robust pipeline of various exams in our traditional testing services sector heading into the second half of Fiscal Year 2017, including the increase in the revenue of the Fund Practitioner Certification Exam which offsets the majority of the loss of revenue from the SAC exam.
  • In June 2016, the Company announced that it planned to explore growth opportunities in the K-12 education assessment and recruitment sectors during Fiscal Year 2017, and to invest between RMB20.0 million and RMB30.0 million in such sectors, which was not reflected in the Company's previously announced Fiscal Year 2017 non-GAAP net income guidance of between RMB27.0 million and RMB37.0 million. By the end of Second Quarter 2017, there has been approximately RMB11.0 million invested in mainly developing the K-12 education assessment item pool. This specifically focuses on Mathematics, Chinese and English for students from Grade 7 to Grade 12 in China. The Company had successfully delivered a trial test and assessment using our education assessment item pool in Tianjin for a selected group of students in public schools. Being highly appreciated by local education authorities, the Company will perform the formal education assessment for students from Grade 7 and Grade 10 in one district in Tianjin in early next January. We will continue to invest and work on the education assessment item pool and expect it to be adopted by more schools in the future.
  • While the Company's operating income is expected to increase, ATA is revising its non-GAAP net income (adjusted net income, which excludes share-based compensation expense and foreign currency exchange gain/loss), primarily due the impairment loss of RMB21.9 million related to the previously announced equity method investment in an associated company as well as impact from the Company's planned investments of around RMB20.0 million in the K-12 education assessment project as mentioned above for the Fiscal Year 2017. As a result, the Company is reducing its Fiscal Year 2017 non-GAAP net income (adjusted net income, which excludes share-based compensation expense and foreign currency exchange gain/loss) guidance from the previously provided between RMB27.0 million and RMB37.0 million (which did not reflect any potential impact from the Company's planned investments of around RMB20.0 million in the K-12 education assessment project for the Fiscal Year 2017) to between nil and RMB 10.0 million.
  • For the quarter ending December 31, 2016 ("Third Quarter 2017"), ATA expects to report net revenues between RMB270.0 million and RMB280.0 million.

Mr. Kevin Ma, ATA's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We continued to build on our market leading position in China's traditional testing services sector along with several key and new exams launched in recent months. In October, we were proud to deliver a record-breaking number for the National Unified Certified Public Accountants ("CPA") exams, and we expect the growth in CPA exams in the upcoming quarter. We further accelerated our geographic expansion for the Qualification Exam for Housing and Urban-Rural Construction Field Professionals into 4 more provinces, and we expect to expand our geographic coverage to more areas for the year. For the Fund Practitioner Certification Exam we doubled growth in revenue during the quarter. Also during the second quarter 2017, we further progress on our online education services sector. In July, we started our online continued education training program for professionals who acquired China banking association exam certificates ("online banking program") and expect growth in such new business in the upcoming quarters."

Operating Review
In Second Quarter 2017, ATA delivered a total of 1.8 million billable tests, compared to 1.7 million billable tests in the prior year quarter. The Company had a network of 3,154 authorized test centers throughout China as of September 30, 2016, which the Company believes is the largest test center network in China operated by a commercial testing service provider. ATA has delivered approximately 80.7 million billable tests since its inception in 1999.

GAAP Results
Second Quarter 2017
For Second Quarter 2017, ATA's total net revenue increased 21.9% to RMB65.1 million (US$9.8 million), compared to RMB53.4 million in Second Quarter 2016. The increase was primarily due to the growth in test volume from several exams such as Fund Practitioners Certification Exam and the Qualification Exam for Housing and Urban-Rural Construction Field Professionals, despite the loss of revenue contributions from the SAC exam.

Gross profit for Second Quarter 2017 was RMB29.6 million (US$4.4 million), compared to RMB24.4 million in Second Quarter 2016. Gross margin was 45.4% in Second Quarter 2017, compared to 45.6% in Second Quarter 2016.

Loss from operations in Second Quarter 2017 was to RMB9.3 million (US$1.4 million), compared to RMB12.2 million in Second Quarter 2016.

Net loss for Second Quarter 2017 was RMB35.6 million (US$5.3 million), compared to RMB14.1 million in Second Quarter 2016. The net loss increase was primarily due to the impairment loss in the amount of RMB21.9 million related to the previously announced equity method investment in an associated company.

For Second Quarter 2017, basic and diluted losses per common share were both RMB0.78 (US$0.12), compared to basic and diluted losses per common share of RMB0.31 in Second Quarter 2016. Basic and diluted losses per ADS were both RMB1.56 (US$0.24) in Second Quarter 2017, compared to basic and diluted losses per ADS of RMB0.62 in Second Quarter 2016.

Non-GAAP Measures
Adjusted net loss for Second Quarter 2017, which excludes share-based compensation expense and foreign currency exchange loss (non-GAAP), was RMB34.6 million (US$5.2 million), compared to RMB10.7 million in the prior-year period. Basic and diluted losses per common share excluding share-based compensation expense and foreign currency exchange loss (non-GAAP) for Second Quarter 2017 were both RMB0.75 (US$0.11).

Basic and diluted losses per ADS excluding share-based compensation expense and foreign currency exchange loss (non-GAAP) for Second Quarter 2017 were both RMB1.50 (US$0.22), compared to RMB0.46 in the prior-year period.

Please see the note about non-GAAP measures and the reconciliation table at the end of this press release.

Other Data
The number of weighted average ADSs used to calculate both basic and diluted earnings per ADS for Second Quarter 2017 was 22.9 million. Each ADS represents two common shares.

Share Incentive Program
On November 7, 2016, the Company's board of directors approved a new share incentive program pursuant to which 2,700,000 common shares (which equals to the number of shares that were available for issuance under the Company's 2005 share incentive plan before it expired in April 2015) are reserved for issuance to the company's directors, management, employees and consultants.

Balance Sheet Highlights
As of September 30, 2016, ATA's cash and cash equivalents were RMB119.8 million (US$18.0 million), working capital was RMB121.3 million (US$18.2 million), and total shareholders' equity was RMB366.2 million (US$54.9 million), compared to RMB247.7 million, RMB245.8 million, and RMB394.2 million, respectively, as of March 31, 2016. The decrease in cash and cash equivalents is mainly due to the increase in long-term investments related to ATA's recent strategic investments in a number of online education companies and a RMB30.0 million (US$4.5 million) cash reserve set aside as a domestic guarantee in China that allows the Company to obtain an overseas loan for general working capital purposes in its international business. The company has drawn down RMB3.3 million (US$0.5 million) of this credit line in July 2016.

Guidance for Fiscal Year 2017 and for Third Quarter 2017
For Third Quarter 2017, ATA expects net revenues of between RMB270.0 million and RMB280.0 million.

For the Fiscal Year 2017, ATA is raising its expectations for net revenues to between RMB455.0 million and RMB475.0 million, from the previously provided outlook of between RMB420.0 million and RMB440.0 million. The increase is based on the better than anticipated Fiscal Year 2017 first half results and a robust pipeline of various exams in our traditional testing services sector heading into the second half of Fiscal Year 2017, including the increase in the revenue of the Fund Practitioner Certification Exam which offsets the majority of the loss of revenue from the SAC exam.

While the Company's operating income is expected to increase, ATA is revising its non-GAAP net income (adjusted net income, which excludes share-based compensation expense and foreign currency exchange gain/loss), primarily due the impairment loss of RMB21.9 million related to the previously announced equity method investment in an associated company as well as impact from the Company's planned investments of around RMB20.0 million in the abovementioned K-12 education assessment project for the Fiscal Year 2017. As a result, the Company is reducing its Fiscal Year 2017 non-GAAP net income (adjusted net income, which excludes share-based compensation expense and foreign currency exchange gain/loss) guidance from the previously provided RMB27.0 million and RMB37.0 million (which did not reflect any potential impact from the Company's planned investments of around RMB20.0 million in the above mentioned K-12 education assessment project for the Fiscal Year 2017) to between nil and RMB10.0 million.

The factors that could cause the Company's actual financial and operating results to differ from what the Company currently anticipates can include its ability to meet challenges associated with its rapid expansion, its ability to meet the expectations of current and future clients, its ability to deploy new test titles, its ability to win new enterprise contracts, its ability to convert its existing contracts into actual revenues, the economy of China, uncertainties with respect to the China's legal and regulatory environments, and other factors stated in the Company's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").

The financial information contained in this release should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes included in the Company's annual report on Form 20-F for its fiscal year ended March 31, 2016, and other filings that ATA has made with the SEC.

Although the Company believes that the expectations expressed in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, the Company cannot assure you that its expectations and assumptions will turn out to be correct, and investors are cautioned that actual results may differ materially from the anticipated results.

Currency Convenience Translation
The Company's financial information is stated in Renminbi ("RMB"), the currency of the People's Republic of China. The translation of RMB amounts for Second Quarter 2017 ended September 30, 2016, into U.S. dollars are included solely for the convenience of readers and have been made at the rate of RMB6.6685 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate as of September 30, 2016, in New York for cable transfers in RMB per U.S. dollar as set forth in the H.10 weekly statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board. Such translations should not be construed as representations that RMB amounts could be converted into U.S. dollars at that rate or any other rate, or to be the amounts that would have been reported under U.S. GAAP.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement ATA's consolidated financial information presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), ATA uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: net income (loss) excluding share-based compensation expense and foreign currency exchange gain or loss, and basic and diluted earnings (losses) per common share and ADS excluding share-based compensation expense and foreign currency exchange gain or loss.

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 GAAP. ATA believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information about its performance by excluding share-based compensation expense and foreign currency exchange gains or losses, which may not be indicative of its operating performance.

ATA believes that both management and investors benefit from these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing its performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to ATA's historical performance. ATA computes its non-GAAP financial measures using a consistent method from period to period. ATA 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. A limitation of using non-GAAP net income (loss) excluding share-based compensation expense and foreign currency exchange gains or losses and basic and diluted earnings (losses) per common share and per ADS excluding share-based compensation expense and foreign currency exchange gain or loss is that share-based compensation charges and foreign currency exchange gains or losses have been, and are expected to continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense in ATA's business.

Management compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The table captioned "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures to the Most Comparable GAAP Measures" shown at the end this news release has more details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to the non-GAAP financial measures used by ATA.
