"We increased our total active accounts year over year and exceeded our revenue guidance in the second half of 2011," said Mr. Benson Wang, Co-founder, director and chief executive officer of Taomee. "We were pleased with the user growth and user engagement levels in the fourth quarter and continue to add loyal customers across multiple media platforms. In particular, we received high ratings for our animation series, which have been broadcast across more than 100 television channels since June 2011.

"In 2012, we plan to accelerate investments in our brands and platform, and we are willing to sacrifice short term revenue growth and operating margin in exchange for long term sustainable revenue and profit growth. China's domestic industry for family entertainment is still in its early stages, and we believe there is tremendous revenue growth potential over the foreseeable future, and more importantly, attractive returns on capital over the long term."

Operational Results for Fourth Quarter of 2011

  • The number of active accounts for the Company's virtual worlds under operation in mainland China decreased 27% to approximately 27.0 million from 37.1 million in the third quarter of 2011 and increased 4% from 26.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2010.
  • Active paying accounts for the Company's virtual worlds under operation in mainland China decreased to 1.7 million from 2.1 million in the third quarter of 2011 and from 2.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2010.
  • The sequential decreases in active accounts and active paying accounts were primarily due to seasonality as the fourth quarter has fewer non-school days compared with the third quarter of 2011.
  • The year over year increase in active accounts and decrease in active paying accounts were primarily due to the fact that the Company decided to temporarily decelerate monetization in the fourth quarter of 2011 in an effort to attract new users and enhance user stickiness.

Total Net Revenues

Total net revenues were US$8.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared with US$12.7 million in the third quarter of 2011 and US$9.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. 

Net online business revenues were US$7.5 million, compared with US$10.4 million in the third quarter of 2011 and US$8.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was primarily due to seasonality as the fourth quarter has fewer non-school days than the third quarter of 2011. The year-over-year decrease was partially due to the implementation of the Company's strategy to attract new users and user stickiness while reducing the monetization of online products temporarily.

Net offline business revenues were US$1.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared with US$2.3 million in the third quarter of 2011 and US$0.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. The sequential decrease was due to we recorded revenues from proceeds-sharing arrangements from the box offices of the movie based on the Company's Seer franchise in the third quarter of 2011 and there was no such revenue in the fourth quarter of 2011. The year-over-year increases were mainly due to a rise in offline merchandise and book licensing revenue from the Taiwanese market.

Offline business related costs were US$0.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared with US$0.9 million in the third quarter of 2011 and US$0.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. The sequential decrease was mainly due to there were no recorded costs associated with movie production in the fourth quarter of 2011.

  • Sales and marketing expenses were US$1.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared with US$1.9 million in the third quarter of 2011 and US$0.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. The sequential decrease was attributable to the absence of film and other promotion expenses.  The year-over-year increase was largely due to an increase in animation related expenses and higher advertising expenses.
  • General and administrative expenses were US$2.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared with US$2.3 million in the third quarter of 2011 and US$1.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Unaudited Financial Results for Fiscal year 2011

Net Revenues

Net revenues were 45.4 million in 2011, representing an increase of 26.1% from $36.0 million in 2010. This increase was primarily due to an increase in the revenues from the Company's online and offline businesses.

Net revenues generated from the online business increased from US$33.7 million in 2010 to US$40.3 million in 2011. The increase was driven by both the growth of our existing self-developed franchises as well as revenues from third party developed games available to users on our platform.

Net revenues generated from offline business increased significantly to US$5.1 million in 2011 from approximately US$2.3 million in 2010. This increase was primarily due to revenues generated from the Company's co-branding and merchandise licensing contracts and revenue-sharing arrangements for a film based on the Seer franchise and royalty received from publishers of children's books.

Cost of Services

Cost of services increased from US$5.9 million in 2010 to US$7.7 million in 2011, primarily due to the expansion of both online and offline businesses.

Cost of services relating to the Company's online business increased to US$6.0 million in 2011 from US$5.2 million in 2010. This increase was primarily due to an increase in the salaries and benefits expenses to the Company's employees and share based compensation.

Cost of services relating to the Company's offline business increased to US$1.7 million in 2011 from approximately US$0.7 million in 2010. This increase was primarily attributable to film and animations production costs as well as increases in the salaries and benefit payments to the newly-hired employees for the offline business.

Total Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses increased to US$22.8 million in 2011 from US$11.7 million in 2010. The increase in the operating expenses was primarily due to increases in product development expenses and sales and marketing expenses, and to a lesser extent, increases in general and administrative expenses. Details are as follows:

  • Product development expenses increased by121.6% from US$4.6 million in 2010 to US$10.3 million in 2011. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in salary and benefit expenses as additional software engineers, development staff, and creative technicians including writers, virtual world architects, and graphic artists were hired. A significant percentage of the R&D headcount additions were allocated toward the new investments in mobile, platform services, online video, and brand management.
  • Sales and marketing expenses increased by298.4% from US$1.6 million in 2010 to US$6.3 million in 2011. The increase was primarily attributable to higher advertising and promotional activities, including those related to new product launches throughout 2011, as well as an increase in animation related expenses. Mole's World season one was launched in June 2011 and Seer season one in January 2012.
  • General and administrative expenses increased by 39.0% from US$5.7 million in 2010 to US$8.0 million in 2011. The increase was primarily due to the increase in share-based compensation and incremental expenses as a listed company.

Share of Profit in Equity Method Investments

Share of profit in equity method investments was US$4.2 million in 2011, compared with US$0.5 million in 2010 mainly due to a US$3.7 million gain realized from the sale of 10.5% equity method interest in Elyn Corporation in February 2011.

Profit from Operations

Profit from operations was US$14.9 million in 2011, compared with US$18.5 million in 2010.

Income Tax Benefit/ (Expense)

Income tax expense was US$1.7 million in 2011, compared to an income tax benefit of approximately US$2.5 million in 2010, due to the changes in the corporate income tax rate eligibility of Shanghai Shengran and Shanghai Taomee in 2011.

Net Income

Net income attributable to holders of ordinary shares was US$19.3 million in 2011, compared with US$21.1 million in 2010. 

Basic and diluted earnings per ADS were US$0.58 and US$0.56, respectively in 2011, compared with US$0.73 and US$0.72, respectively, in 2010. 

Non-GAAP net income attributable to shareholders was US$17.6 million in 2011 compared with US$21.3 million in 2010.
