Management Comments

"We delivered solid financial and operational results for the second quarter with revenues exceeding the high end of our guidance," commented Mr. Michael Yao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of 58.com, "Traffic from our apps continued to grow rapidly. We continued to be the biggest online recruitment platform in China as defined by revenues. Job category revenues continue to grow faster than most other major online recruitment companies in China. Revenue from our housing category remained resilient by delivering better-than-expected growth despite tightened government policies and low transaction volumes, especially in tier one and two cities. Our two early-stage businesses continue to generate record high traffic. Zhuan Zhuan, our C2C used goods transaction platform, has gained significant growth momentum from its branding campaign and Wechat Wallet access. 58 Town, a version of 58 specifically designed for rural areas, continues to expand the number of towns it covers and increase user engagement. We will continue to invest in both our new and core classifieds businesses in order to best position ourselves over the long term."

Mr. Hao Zhou, Chief Financial Officer of 58.com added, "We are pleased to see revenues increase by 32.3% year-over-year. Having increased our investments in Zhuan Zhuan and 58 Town sequentially, non-GAAP net and operating profit during the second quarter still grew a solid 24% year-over-year. We continue to see a lot of opportunities for us to generate long-term revenues growth and higher margins as our business further grows and operational efficiency improves."

Revenues

Total revenues were RMB3,430.5 million (US$518.5 million), representing an increase of 32.3% from RMB2,593.3 million in the same quarter of 2017.

Membership revenues were RMB1,166.9 million (US$176.4 million), an increase of 21.1% from RMB963.7 million in the same quarter of 2017. The increase in membership revenues was primarily driven by an increase in the number of subscription-based paying membership accounts. The total number of paying membership accounts on the Company's platforms, which include 58.com, Ganji.com and Anjuke.com, was approximately 2,932,000 during the second quarter of 2018, a 19.0% increase from approximately 2,464,000 in the same quarter of 2017. Subscription-based paying membership accounts refer to the users who have purchased the Company's subscription-based membership services and whose membership subscriptions are active at any point during a given period. Some paying members purchase membership services from more than one of the Company's platforms which contributes separately to the revenues of each platform.

Online marketing services revenues were RMB2,186.7 million (US$330.5 million), an increase of 42.3% from RMB1,536.5 million in the same quarter of 2017.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues was RMB341.5 million (US$51.6 million), an increase of 45.2% from RMB235.3 million during the same quarter of 2017.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures           

To supplement the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, this press release presents non-GAAP income/(loss) from operations, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to 58.com Inc., non-GAAP net margin and non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings/(loss) per share and per ADS by excluding share-based compensation expenses of the group (net of the amount allocated to noncontrolling interests), amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisitions, share-based compensation expenses included in share of results of equity investees, and income tax effects of above GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are important to help investors understand the Company's operating and financial performance, compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis and assess the Company's core operating results, as they exclude certain expenses that are not expected to result in cash payments. The use of the above non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations. Share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisitions, non-cash gain or loss and income tax effects resulting from GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items have been and will continue to be incurred in the future and are not reflected in the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures, but should be considered in the overall evaluation of the Company's results. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing the relevant disclosure of its share-based compensation expenses of the group (net of the amount allocated to noncontrolling interests), amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisitions, share-based compensation expenses included in share of results of equity investees and income tax effects of above GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company's performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is set forth at the end of this release.

[1] This press release contains translations of certain Renminbi (RMB) amounts into U.S. dollars (US$) solely for the convenience of the reader. Unless otherwise specified, all translations of Renminbi amounts into U.S. dollar amounts in this press release are made at RMB6.6166 to US$1.00, which was the U.S. dollars middle rate announced by the State Administration of Foreign Exchange of the People's Republic of China (PRC) on June 29, 2018. On August 15, 2018, such exchange rate was RMB6.8856 to US$1.00. The percentages stated in this press release are calculated based on the Renminbi amounts.

[2] Non-GAAP income from operations is defined as income from operations excluding share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisitions. See "Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" at the end of this press release.

[3] Non-GAAP net income attributable to 58.com Inc. is defined as net income attributable to 58.com Inc. excluding share-based compensation expenses of the group (net of the amount allocated to noncontrolling interests), amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisitions, share-based compensation expenses included in share of results of equity investees, and income tax effects of GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items. See "Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" at the end of this press release.

[4] Non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per ADS are defined as non-GAAP net income attributable to 58.com Inc. divided by weighted average number of basic and diluted ADSs.

[5] Since the third quarter of 2017, certain share-based awards with redemption features granted to the Company's employees were expected to be settled in cash and were classified as liabilities. The share-based compensation expenses recognized for this type of awards amounted to RMB4.4 million and RMB9.6 million for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2018 , respectively, and were excluded from the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation accordingly.

[6] This is to exclude the income tax benefits related to amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisitions calculated at PRC statutory income tax rate of 25% and income tax expense related to disposal of business. Other GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items have no income tax effect.
