Financial Results for the First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2019

Net Revenues

In the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, TAL reported net revenues of US$550.6 million, representing a 71.1% increase from US$321.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. The increase was mainly driven by an increase in total student enrollments, which increased by 88.7% to approximately 1,976,960 from approximately 1,047,760 in the same period of the prior year. The increase in total student enrollments was driven primarily by the growth of enrollments in the small class offerings and online courses.

Operating Costs and Expenses

In the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, operating costs and expenses were US$480.7 million, a 63.7% increase from US$293.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. Non-GAAP operating costs and expenses, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, were US$465.8 million, a 64.6% increase from US$283.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018.

Cost of revenues increased by 53.9% to US$261.1 million from US$169.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. The increase in cost of revenues was mainly due to an increase in rental costs and teacher compensation. Non-GAAP cost of revenues, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 53.9% to US$260.9 million, from US$169.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018.

Selling and marketing expenses increased by 117.4% to US$94.5 million from US$43.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. Non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 119.3% to US$92.9 million, from US$42.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. The increase of selling and marketing expenses in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019 was primarily a result of more marketing promotion activities to expand our customer base and brand enhancement, as well as a rise in the compensation to sales and marketing staff to support a greater number of programs and service offerings compared to the same period in the prior year.

General and administrative expenses increased by 55.2% to US$125.2 million from US$80.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. The increase in general and administrative expenses was mainly due to an increase of the number of our general and administrative personnel compared to the same period in the prior year and a rise in compensation to our general and administrative personnel, as well as an increase in rental cost. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 57.5% to US$112.0 million, from US$71.1 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018.

Total share-based compensation expenses allocated to the related operating costs and expenses increased by 40.1% to US$15.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019 from US$10.7 million in the same period of fiscal year 2018. The increase was mainly due to new grants of non-vested shares and options to employees by the Company in fiscal year 2019.

Gross Profit                                                                                                                                 

Gross profit increased by 90.1% to US$289.6 million from US$152.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018.

Income from Operations

Income from operations increased by 160.3% to US$75.0 million from US$28.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. Non-GAAP income from operations, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 127.8% to US$90.0 million from US$39.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018.

Other Income

Other income was US$8.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, mainly related to the fair value changes of equity securities in accordance with the update (ASU 2016-01 and ASU 2018-03) to the accounting standard (ASC321) adopted on March 1, 2018.

Impairment Loss on Long-term Investments

Impairment loss on long-term investments was US$9.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, compared to US$0.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. Impairment loss on long-term investments was mainly due to the other-than-temporary declines in the value of long-term investments in several investees.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense was US$17.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, compared to US$8.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018.

Net Income Attributable to TAL Education Group

Net income attributable to TAL increased by 132.0% to US$66.8 million from US$28.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. Non-GAAP net income attributable to TAL, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, increased by 107.1% to US$81.8 million, from US$39.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018.

Basic and diluted net income per ADS were US$0.12 and US$0.11, respectively, in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ADS, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, were both US$0.14.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures for the first quarter of fiscal year 2019 were US$28.7 million, a decrease of US$0.9 million from US$29.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018.

Cash, Cash Equivalents, and Short-Term Investments

As of May 31, 2018, the Company had US$924.4 million of cash and cash equivalents and US$1,004.8 million of short-term investments, compared to US$711.5 million of cash and cash equivalents and US$787.4 million of short-term investments as of February 28, 2018.

Deferred Revenue

Revenue from Contracts with Customers ("Topic 606") became effective for the Company on March 1, 2018, and as a result, at May 31, 2018, US$90.8 million of deferred revenue was reclassified to accrued expenses and other current liabilities. Such balance represented estimated amounts of tuition collected that may be refunded in the future if students withdraw from a course for any remaining classes. The Company's deferred revenue balance, after the reclassification, was US$1,328.5 million, compared to US$959.4 million as of May 31, 2017, representing a year-over-year increase of 38.5%. At May 31, 2018, deferred revenue balance primarily consisted of the tuition collected in advance for the summer and fall semesters of Xueersi small classes.

New accounting standards

1> The "New Revenue Accounting Standard"

On March 1, 2018, the Company adopted Revenue from Contracts with Customers ("Topic 606"), applying the modified retrospective method to all contracts that were not completed as of March 1, 2018. Results for reporting periods beginning March 1, 2018 are presented under Topic 606, while prior period amounts are not adjusted and continue to be reported under the accounting standards in effect for the prior periods. The Company assessed variable consideration included in its consulting service related to overseas study over the expected service period and identified a provision under the new standard in relation to the incremental cost, commission fee, of obtaining a contract. The cumulative effect of initially applying the new standard of US$4.1 million was recorded as an adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings upon adoption.

In addition, reclassification was made from deferred revenue to accrued expenses and other current liabilities for tuition collected that may be refunded to the customers in the future if students withdraw from a course for any remaining classes.

2> The "New Financial Instruments Accounting Standard"

The Company adopted the new financial instruments accounting standard (ASC321) on March 1, 2018. Upon adoption, for equity securities without readily determinable fair value that qualify for the practical expedient to estimate fair value using net asset value per share, the Company recorded the cumulative effect of the adjustment of US$4.2 million to the opening balance of retained earnings. For other equity securities without readily determinable fair value, the Company elected measurement alternative and applied the prospective transition approach. Under the new standard, gain from fair value changes to the equity securities of US$10.8 million was recorded in other income during the first quarter of fiscal year 2019.

Business Outlook

Based on our current estimates, total net revenues for the second quarter of fiscal year 2019 are expected to be between US$647.2 million and US$660.8 million, representing an increase of 42% to 45% on a year-over-year basis. If not including the impact from the recent depreciation of RMB against US dollar, the projected revenue growth rate is expected to be in the range of 40% to 43% for the second quarter of fiscal year 2019.

These estimates reflect the Company's current expectation, which is subject to change.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating its business, TAL considers and uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC as supplemental metrics to review and assess its operating performance: non-GAAP operating costs and expenses, non-GAAP cost of revenues, non-GAAP selling and marketing expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income attributable to TAL, non-GAAP basic and non-GAAP diluted net income per ADS. To present each of these non-GAAP measures, the Company excludes share-based compensation expenses. 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. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this release.

TAL believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding share-based expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. TAL 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 TAL's historical performance and liquidity. TAL computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter and from period to period. TAL 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 measures is that these non-GAAP measures exclude share-based compensation charges that have been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in the Company's business. Management compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying tables have more details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.
