Second Quarter Highlights

  • Total revenues hit record at US$400 million, up 18% year-over-year and 10% quarter-over-quarter.
  • Brand advertising revenues were US$133 million, up 33% year-over-year and 20% quarter-over-quarter.
  • Sogou[1] revenues were US$91 million, up 82% year-over-year and 30% quarter-over-quarter.
  • Online game revenues were US$154 million, down 9% year-over-year and 6% quarter-over-quarter.
  • GAAP net loss attributable to Sohu.com Inc. was US$45 million, or US$1.16 loss per fully-diluted share. Non-GAAP[2] net loss attributable to Sohu.com Inc. was US$34 million, or US$0.88 loss per fully-diluted share.

Dr. Charles Zhang, Chairman and CEO of Sohu.com Inc., commented, "I am pleased to report that our Group's quarterly revenues hit record high of $400 million, in line with our prior guidance. Notably, for our news and video businesses, we made solid progress in mobile monetization as our large user base successfully attracted a growing number of advertisers. Mobile ad revenues for each of them grew in triple digit from the prior quarter. For Sogou, it launched the unique WeChat official account search function as it deepened the cooperation with Tencent. And driven by strong revenue growth, for two consecutive quarters, Sogou achieved profitability that was even sooner than we had forecasted."

Dr. Zhang added, "For Changyou, its platform initiatives are well on track with the second quarter achieving 252 million average monthly active users of platforms channels, almost tripled from a year ago. In the meantime, we saw relatively soft performance of its existing portfolio of online games primarily as Changyou released a new expansion pack for TLBB to reduce the level of difficulty and make other adjustments in April. With the expansion packs of existing games and new games in the pipeline, we expect its game business will continue to generate healthy cash flow to support Changyou's long term growth objectives."

Mr. Xiaochuan Wang, CEO of Sogou, commented, "Through ten years of efforts, Sogou laid a solid foundation in developing search technology and forming a comprehensive product portfolio. Following the strategic investment from Tencent, the two parties have cooperated well in multiple aspects. Leveraging Tencent's vast user base and broad spectrum of data, we have enhanced our competitiveness in search market, especially on mobile. We are now able to provide our users better quality and differentiated search experience, as evidenced by Sogou's unique ability to index and search content within WeChat's over 4 million official accounts. Meanwhile, Sogou's revenue and profit have reached to a level that enable us to increase our investment in product innovation and brand building. Sogou is set to become an increasingly competitive challenger in the search market."

Second Quarter Financial Results

Revenues

Total revenues for the second quarter of 2014 were US$400 million, up 18% year-over-year and 10% quarter-over-quarter.

Total online advertising revenues, which include revenues from brand advertising and search and others businesses for the second quarter of 2014, were US$218 million, up 49% year-over-year and 25% quarter-over-quarter.

Brand advertising revenues for the second quarter of 2014 totaled US$133 million, up 33% year-over-year and 20% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to revenue increases in the online video and 17173 advertising businesses. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly due to increases in the online video and automobile advertising businesses.

Search and others revenues for the second quarter of 2014 were US$85 million, up 84% year-over-year and 32% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases were mainly due to increased traffic and improved monetization.

Online game revenues for the second quarter of 2014 were US$154 million, down 9% year-over-year and 6% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter decreases were mainly due to decreased revenues from Wartune and DDTank in China, and decreased revenues from TLBB because fewer players spent money in the game in the second quarter of 2014 after Changyou released a new expansion pack that made some of the gameplay easier for players to play.

Gross Margin

Both GAAP and Non-GAAP gross margin were 58% for the second quarter of 2014, compared with 62% in the first quarter of  2014 and 66% in the second quarter of 2013.

Both GAAP and Non-GAAP online advertising gross margin for the second quarter of 2014 were 44%, compared with 45% in the first quarter of 2014 and 48% in the second quarter of 2013.

Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin for the brand advertising business in the second quarter of 2014 were 38%, compared with 42% in the first quarter of 2014 and 49% in the second quarter of 2013. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter decreases in gross margin were primarily due to increases in content and bandwidth costs.  

GAAP gross margin for the search and others business in the second quarter of 2014 were 52%, compared with 51% in the first quarter of 2014 and 47% in the second quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP gross margin for the search and others business in the second quarter of 2014 were 53%, compared with 51% in the first quarter of 2014 and 47% in the second quarter of 2013. The year-over-year increase were primarily attributable to a decrease in traffic acquisition costs as a percentage of search and others revenues. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly due to a decrease in bandwidth and depreciation costs as a percentage of search and others revenues.

Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin for online games in the second quarter of 2014 were 80%, compared with 84% in the first quarter of 2014 and 86% in the second quarter of  2013. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter decreases were mainly due to increased salary and benefits expense with respect to the game operation staff in the second quarter of 2014.

Operating Expenses

For the second quarter of 2014, operating expenses totaled US$292 million, up 82% year-over-year and down 1% quarter-over-quarter. Non-GAAP operating expenses were US$267 million, up 67% year-over-year and down 8% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to an increase in marketing and promotion expenses of Changyou for various software applications and an increase in salaries and compensation expenses as a result of increased number of employees and average compensation.

Operating Loss

Operating loss for the second quarter of 2014 was US$62 million, compared with operating loss of US$69 million in the previous quarter and operating profit of US$64 million in the second quarter of 2013.

Non-GAAP operating loss for the second quarter of 2014 was US$35 million, compared with operating loss of US$63 million in the previous quarter and operating profit of US$66 million in the second quarter of 2013.

Income Tax Benefit

Both GAAP and non-GAAP income tax benefit were US$1.7 million in the second quarter of 2014, compared with US$0.2 million income tax expense in the previous quarter and US$16 million income tax expense in the second quarter of 2013. The income tax benefit was mainly from an income tax benefit of Changyou of US$2.2 million, primarily as a result of recognition of deferred tax assets for a net loss carry forward by some of its operating entities which were loss-making, partially offset by US$0.5 million income tax expense incurred by other businesses of Sohu.

Net Loss

Before deducting the share of net loss pertaining to Non-controlling Interest, GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2014 was US$51 million, compared with net loss of US$56 million in the previous quarter and net income of US$53 million in the second quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2014 was US$24 million, compared with net loss of US$51 million in the previous quarter and net income of US$54 million in the second quarter of 2013.

GAAP net loss attributable to Sohu.com Inc. for the second quarter of 2014 was US$45 million, or US$1.16 loss per fully-diluted share, compared with net loss of US$79 million in the previous quarter and net income of US$22 million in the second quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP net loss attributable to Sohu.com Inc. for the second quarter of 2014 was US$34 million, or US$0.88 loss per fully-diluted share, compared with net loss of US$48 million in the previous quarter and net income of US$23 million in the second quarter of 2013.

Cash Balance

As of June 30, 2014, the Sohu Group had cash and cash equivalents of US$1,050 million, compared with US$1,287 million as of  December 31, 2013.

Ms. Carol Yu, President and CFO of Sohu.com Inc., commented, "I am pleased that the total revenues for the Sohu Group reached $400 million, driven up strong growth in online video and Sogou businesses. Although our near-term margin is under pressure due to strategic deployment for online video and Changyou, I am confident that such investments will yield long-term return for our shareholders."

Business Outlook

For the third quarter of 2014, Sohu estimates:

  • Total revenues to be between US$427 million and US$442 million.
  • Brand advertising revenues to be between US$148 million and US$153 million; this implies a sequential increase of 11% to 15% and an annual increase of 19% to 23%.
  • Sogou revenues to be between US$100 million and US$105 million; this implies a sequential increase of 10% to 15% and an annual growth of 76% to 84%.
  • Online game revenues to be between US$158 million and US$163 million; this implies a sequential increase of 3% to 6 % and an annual decrease of 2% to an annual increase of  1%.
  • Before deducting the share of non-GAAP net loss pertaining to Non-Controlling interest, non-GAAP net loss to be between US$28 million and US$34 million.
  • Non-GAAP net loss attributable to Sohu.com Inc. to be between US$29 million and US$33 million, and non-GAAP loss per fully-diluted share to be between US$0.75 and US$0.85.
  • Assuming no new grants of share-based awards, we estimate that compensation expenses relating to share-based awards to be around US$22 million to US$23 million. The estimated impact of this expense is expected to increase Sohu's loss per fully-diluted share for the third quarter of 2014 under US GAAP by 57 to 59 US cents. This figure should not be used to calculate Sohu's projected GAAP loss per fully-diluted share, as there are other factors impacting such a calculation, for which no reconciliation is provided.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

Sohu discloses its non-GAAP operating results by excluding income/expense from share-based awards and the related tax impact, adjustment of contingent consideration, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, and dividend and deemed dividend to non-controlling preferred shareholders of Sogou.

To supplement the unaudited consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), Sohu's management uses non-GAAP measures of gross profit, operating profit, income tax expense, net income attributable to Sohu.com Inc. and net income attributable to Sohu.com Inc. per share, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude the impact of share-based awards, which consist mainly of share-based compensation expenses and non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, and dividend and deemed dividend to non-controlling preferred shareholders. These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results.

Sohu's management believes excluding the impact of share-based awards, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, and dividend and deemed dividend to non-controlling preferred shareholders from its non-GAAP financial measure is useful for itself and investors. Further, the impact of share-based awards, utilization of non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, and dividend and deemed dividend to non-controlling preferred shareholders cannot be anticipated by management and business line leaders and these expenses were not built into the annual budgets and quarterly forecasts, which have been the basis for information Sohu provides to analysts and investors as guidance for future operating performance. As the impact of share-based awards, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, and dividend and deemed dividend to non-controlling preferred shareholders does not involve subsequent cash outflow or is reflected in the cash flows at the equity transaction level, Sohu does not factor this impact in when evaluating and approving expenditures or when determining the allocation of its resources to its business segments. As a result, in general, the monthly financial results for internal reporting and any performance measures for commissions and bonuses are based on non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the impact of share-based awards, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, and dividend and deemed dividend to non-controlling preferred shareholders.

The non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of Sohu's current financial performance and prospects for the future. A limitation of using non-GAAP gross profit, operating profit, income tax expense, net income attributable to Sohu.com Inc. and net income attributable to Sohu.com Inc. per share, excluding the impact of share-based awards, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact, and dividend and deemed dividend to non-controlling preferred shareholders is that the impact of share-based awards and non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards has been and will continue to be a significant recurring expense in Sohu's business for the foreseeable future, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration, goodwill impairment, impairment of intangibles via acquisitions of businesses and the related tax impact may recur in the future, and dividend and deemed dividend to non-controlling preferred shareholders may recur when Sohu and its affiliates enter into equity transactions. In order to mitigate these limitations Sohu has provided specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying tables include details on the reconciliation between the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to the non-GAAP financial measures that have been presented.

Notes to Financial Information

Financial information in this press release other than the information indicated as being non-GAAP is derived from Sohu's unaudited interim financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Mezzanine equity consists of non-controlling interests in 7Road and a put option that gave the non-controlling shareholders the right to put their shares to Changyou at a pre-determined price if 7Road achieved specified performance milestones before the expiry of the put option and 7Road did not complete an initial public offering on NASDAQ, the New York Stock Exchange or The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong. Non-controlling interests of 7Road and the put option were classified as mezzanine equity in Changyou's consolidated balance sheets, as redemption of the non-controlling interests was not solely within the control of Changyou.

In accordance with ASC subtopic 480-10, Changyou accreted the balance of non-controlling interests to its redemption value over the period from the date of the 7Road acquisition to the earliest exercise date of the put right. Any subsequent changes in the redemption value were considered to be changes in accounting estimates and were also recognized over the same period as net income attributable to mezzanine classified non-controlling interests.

On May 1, 2013, Changyou entered into an agreement to acquire all of the ordinary shares of 7Road held by the non-controlling shareholders. The acquisition was completed on June 5, 2013. Under ASC 810-10, changes in a parent's ownership interest while the parent retains control of its subsidiary are accounted for as equity transactions, and do not impact net income or comprehensive income in the consolidated financial statements. Following the closing of the acquisition, US$2.4 million, representing the excess of the amount of the mezzanine-classified non-controlling interests in 7Road over the purchase price as of the closing date, was recorded in Changyou's equity accounts.
