The increase in selling and marketing expenses in the fourth quarter of 2011 was primarily attributable to increases in marketing and promotional expenses incurred by the sales force.

Full-Year 2011 Results

Total revenues in the full-year 2011 were $181.2 million, an increase of 31.2% from $138.1 million in the full-year 2010. Advertising service revenue, which accounted for 99.0% of total revenues in the full-year 2011, was $179.4 million, representing an increase of 30.0% from $138.1 million in the full-year 2010.

Media cost, the most significant component of advertising service cost, was $103.0 million in the full-year 2011, representing 81.1% of total advertising service cost, compared to $97.8 million, or 80.8% of total advertising service cost in the full-year 2010.

Gross profit in the full-year 2011 was $52.6 million, compared to gross profit of $17.1 million in the full-year 2010. Advertising service gross margin was 29.2% in the full-year 2011, compared to 12.4% in the full-year 2010, the result of strong revenue growth and effective control of media cost.

Selling and marketing expenses in the full-year 2011 were $44.9 million, compared to $28.3 million in the full-year 2010. The increase was primarily attributable to an overall increase in marketing and promotional activities.

General and administrative expenses in the full-year 2011 were $13.2 million, compared to $9.5 million in the full-year 2010.

Recent Developments

Pending litigation with the selling shareholders and former management of Digital Media Group

On November 3, 2011 the state trial court in New York (Supreme Court, New York County) ("the Court") entered an order deciding motions filed in connection with two related lawsuits, one filed by VisionChina Media and Vision Best Limited (collectively, "VisionChina") and one by the selling shareholders (the "Selling Shareholders") of Digital Media Group Company Limited ("DMG").  The Court granted the Selling Shareholders' motion to dismiss VisionChina's claims for fraud, unjust enrichment and declaratory judgment, as well as a counterclaim asserted by VisionChina for breach of contract alleging the wrongful destruction of electronic data on DMG's servers at the instruction of a representative of the Selling Shareholders.  The Court also granted the Selling Shareholders' motion to attach $30 million of VisionChina's assets to be held as security in the event that the Selling Shareholders are successful in their claims to compel VisionChina to pay $30 million of $60 million in post-closing consideration that the Selling Shareholders claim to be entitled to.  That order requires the Shareholders to file a $500,000 undertaking in the event that it is ultimately determined that they were not entitled to the attachment. 

The Court denied the Selling Shareholders' motion to dismiss a separate contract claim asserted by VisionChina for not less than $2,785,633.  It also denied the Selling Shareholders' request to compel VisionChina to release the restrictions on certain VisionChina Media stock that the Selling Shareholders received as part of the consideration for the sale of DMG pursuant to the parties' merger agreement.  That stock was worth $60 million at the date of closing of the DMG merger transaction in November 2009, and the Selling Shareholders seek the removal of the restriction in order to facilitate the conversion of that stock to American Depositary Shares so it could be sold or transferred.  The Court reasoned that the Shareholders were not entitled to the requested injunctive relief because they may have a claim for monetary damages if they establish that VisionChina wrongfully refused to release the restrictions.  The Selling Shareholders' complaint did not quantify the damages alleged to have been suffered as a result of the failure to remove the restriction on the stock.

Following the above ruling by the Court, the Selling Shareholders moved for summary judgment to establish their claimed entitlement to $60 million of post-closing cash consideration.  They also obtained a second $30 million attachment, with respect to the second of the two post-closing payments they seek to obtain, and they moved to confirm both attachment orders.  The motion for summary judgment and for confirmation of the attachment orders had not been decided as of the date of this release.

The Company noticed an appeal of the November 3, 2011 ruling to the appellate court in New York, the Appellate Division, First Department, and is vigorously pursuing reinstatement of the claims that were dismissed in that ruling, defense of the claims on which the Selling Shareholders are seeking summary judgment, and opposition to their efforts to obtain pre-judgment attachment and other relief.

Share repurchase program

In September 2011, VisionChina Media's board of directors approved a share repurchase program of up to $15 million by December 31, 2012. During the period from September 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011, the Company purchased, under the share repurchase program, 1,062,450 ADSs (each ADS representing one common share) in aggregate in the open market at an average price of $1.73 for a total consideration of approximately $1.9 million.

Business Outlook

The Company estimates its advertising service revenue in the first quarter of 2012 to be between $27.0 million and $28.0 million. First quarter 2012 net loss attributable to VisionChina Media shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets and provision for contingent loss in connection with a litigation (non-GAAP) is estimated to be between $17.0 million and $18.0 million. The Company estimates that advertising service revenue during the first quarter of 2012 will be negatively affected by seasonality. The Company expects that the seasonal impact will be short-term in nature and that the Company's advertising service revenue will increase in subsequent quarters.

These estimates are based on an exchange rate of RMB 6.3523 per $1.00.

The Company noted that its guidance is based on its current network that, as of the date of this press release, has already been secured by exclusive agency agreements or joint venture contract and based on management's current assessment of the possible outcome of pending litigation with the selling shareholders and former management of Digital Media Group. If the number of cities in the Company's network expands or contracts, or if there is any progress in the pending litigation that affects management's assessment of the possible outcome, management's forecast could be affected.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to VisionChina Media's consolidated financial results under GAAP, the Company also provides non-GAAP financial measures, including net income/(loss) excluding non-cash share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets, provision for contingent loss in connection with a litigation, and/or impairment loss and income tax credit in connection with the impairment loss. The Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with another method for assessing VisionChina Media's operating results in a manner that is focused on the performance of its ongoing operations. Readers are cautioned not to view non-GAAP results on a stand-alone basis or as a substitute for results under GAAP, or as being comparable to results reported or forecasted by other companies. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the performance of VisionChina Media's liquidity and when planning and forecasting future periods. The Company computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter.
