    Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

    To fully reflect the Company’s performance, all analysis between “REVENUES” and “ADJUSTED EBITDA” presents only the results of the hosting and related service business. The MNS business, which was disposed of in the third quarter of 2017, is excluded.

    REVENUES: Net revenues increased by 11.4% to RMB828.3 million (US$125.2 million) in the second quarter of 2018 from RMB743.4 million in the same period of 2017 and increased by 3.4% from RMB800.8 million in the first quarter of 2018. The increase was primarily due to continuously increasing demand from the Company’s new and existing customers.

    GROSS PROFIT: Gross profit increased by 3.6% to RMB229.4 million (US$34.7 million) in the second quarter of 2018 from RMB221.4 million in the same period of 2017 and increased by 0.7% from RMB227.9 million in the first quarter of 2018. Gross margin decreased slightly to 27.7% in the second quarter of 2018 from 29.8% in the same period of 2017 but remained relatively stable compared to the first quarter of 2018. The decrease was mainly due to an increase in depreciation.

    ADJUSTED CASH GROSS PROFIT, which excludes depreciation, amortization, and share-based compensation expenses, increased by 14.4% to RMB364.0 million (US$55.0 million) in the second quarter of 2018 from RMB318.2 million in the same period of 2017 and increased by 4.8% from RMB347.5 million in the first quarter of 2018. Adjusted cash gross margin expanded to 43.9% in the second quarter of 2018 from 42.8% in the same period of 2017 and 43.4% in the previous quarter. The increase was a result of the Company’s efficient management of cabinet capacity, power usage efficiency and human resources in the second quarter of 2018. Since the second quarter of 2018, the Company eliminated approximately 214 lower-margin cabinets in partnered data centers, bringing the total number of partnered cabinets to 4,982 in the second quarter of 2018 from 5,768 in the same period of 2017.

    OPERATING EXPENSES: Total operating expenses increased by 3.0% to RMB177.9 million (US$26.9 million) in the second quarter of 2018 from RMB172.7 million in the same period of 2017 and increased by 3.8% from RMB171.5 million in the first quarter of 2018. As a percentage of net revenues, total operating expenses was 21.5% in the second quarter of 2018, compared to 23.2% in the same period of 2017 and 21.4% in the first quarter of 2018.

    Adjusted operating expenses, which exclude share-based compensation expenses and changes in the fair value of contingent purchase consideration payable, increased by 1.2% to RMB161.9 million (US$24.5 million) in the second quarter of 2018 from RMB160.0 million in the same period of 2017 but decreased by 3.2% from RMB167.2 million in the first quarter of 2018. As a percentage of net revenues, adjusted operating expenses decreased to 19.5% in the second quarter of 2018 from 21.5% in the same period of 2017 and 20.9% in the previous quarter. The decrease was primarily due to the successful implementation and execution of the Company’s cost control measures.

    Sales and marketing expenses were RMB41.8 million (US$6.3 million) in the second quarter of 2018, compared to RMB45.0 million in the same period of 2017 and from RMB41.2 million in the first quarter of 2018.

    Research and development expenses were RMB22.2 million (US$3.3 million) in the second quarter of 2018 compared to RMB23.9 million in the same period of 2017 and RMB22.0 million in the first quarter of 2018.

    General and administrative expenses were RMB109.1 million (US$16.5 million) in the second quarter of 2018 compared to RMB104.8 million in the same period of 2017 and RMB112.3 million in the first quarter of 2018.

    ADJUSTED EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2018 increased by 29.1% to RMB221.1 million (US$33.4 million) from RMB171.3 million in the same period of 2017 and increased by 12.8% compared to the first quarter of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2018 excludes share-based compensation expenses of RMB10.8 million (US$1.6 million) and changes in the fair value of contingent purchase consideration payable, which was a loss of RMB5.5 million (US$0.8 million). Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded to 26.7% in the second quarter of 2018 from 23.0% in the same period of 2017 and 24.5% in the first quarter of 2018.

    NET PROFIT/LOSS: Net loss for the second quarter of 2018 was RMB95.5 million (US$14.4 million) compared to net loss of RMB119.3 million in the same period of 2017 and net profit of RMB34.7 million in the first quarter of 2018. The quarter-over-quarter change was mainly due to foreign exchange fluctuation.

    PROFIT/LOSS PER SHARE: Basic and diluted loss per share was RMB0.14 (US$0.02) in the second quarter of 2018, which represents the equivalent of RMB0.84 (US$0.12) per American Depositary Share ("ADS"). Each ADS represents six ordinary shares. Diluted profit per share is calculated using net profit divided by the weighted average number of shares.

    As of June 30, 2018, the Company's cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investments were RMB2.66 billion (US$401.6 million).

    Net cash generated from operating activities was RMB111.4 million (US$16.8 million) in the second quarter of 2018.
