"Despite the continued challenges posed by the H1N1 flu outbreak, we saw sustained year-over-year revenue growth of 23.8% to US$61.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2010," said Michael Yu, New Oriental's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "This was driven by strong revenue growth in our middle-high school and kids business lines, namely over 50% growth in middle and high school English and U-Can all-subjects training and over 40% growth in POP Kids English. We recorded blended average selling price year-over-year growth of approximately 13.8% for the quarter, mostly due to strong demand for higher priced one-to-one and small size class offerings. Also we enhanced market coverage during the quarter by adding a net of eleven new learning centers in ten existing cities."

Mr. Yu continued, "Our 5.1% year-over-year increase in enrollments in this quarter was negatively impacted by fear of H1N1, especially as the number of reported cases increased throughout the quarter and peaked in the last week of November. Since that time, however, the challenging situation has stabilized as the initial fear of H1N1 has begun to subside and the H1N1 vaccine has become widely available throughout the country, especially in large cities. As of January 12, 2010 more than 58 million people have been vaccinated in mainland China, and approximately 60% of school-aged children haven been immunized in Beijing and Shanghai. As expected, since early December 2009 we have been seeing a noticeable bounce back in cash receipts (cash collected in advance for enrollments). In the past six weeks, cash receipts have increased at least 30% each week compared to the same period in the prior year."

New Oriental's President and Chief Financial Officer, Louis T. Hsieh, stated, "We are delighted to report continued excellent progress in our non- English U-Can programs, including our new customized learning program of small and one-to-one class offerings. Even the seasonally slowest second fiscal quarter witnessed more than 13,400 U-Can enrollments, up from approximately 5,800 in the year ago period, representing over 100% year-over-year growth. In the first half of fiscal year 2010, we recorded more than 46,900 U-Can enrollments and over US$12 million in revenue, more than double the enrollments and over four times the revenue generated from the U-Can program in the year ago period. We are on track to achieve the US$25 million revenue target in fiscal year 2010 from the non-English U-Can program and our new customized learning program, and another approximately US$40-45 million in middle-high school English revenue."

Mr. Hsieh continued, "Given the much better than expected demand for our U-Can platform offerings, including the new customized learning program, we have made the strategic decision to accelerate our expansion of U-Can offerings to reach over 110 learning centers in 37 cities (previously 30 cities), with one-to-one and small class offerings reaching 30 cities (previously 8 to 10 cities), by our May 31, 2010 fiscal year end. To accomplish these aggressive targets, we plan to hire over 1,000 full and part- time U-Can teachers in fiscal year 2010, bringing the U-Can teacher total to over 1,400. In addition, we plan to significantly augment our U-Can department by adding over 250 staff, primarily in marketing and customer service and R&D- content development. The incremental cost of this accelerated expansion will be approximately US$4-5 million for the remaining two quarters of fiscal year 2010, but this will position us well for our seasonally most important summer quarter and beyond. We are confident that with New Oriental's leading brand and our two-pronged strategy of offering both affordable larger classes and higher priced individualized smaller classes, we will continue to be the leader in China's huge after-school training market."

Mr. Hsieh noted that the second quarter of New Oriental's fiscal year is typically the slowest in terms of revenue quarter as students are occupied with the beginning of the formal school year.

Financial Results for the Fiscal Quarter Ended November 30, 2009

For the second fiscal quarter of 2010, New Oriental reported net revenues of US$61.2 million, representing a 23.8% increase year-over-year.

Net revenues from educational programs and services for the second fiscal quarter were US$53.6 million, representing a 22.2% increase year-over-year. The growth was mainly driven by the increase in the number of student enrollments in language training and test preparation courses. Total student enrollments in language training and test preparation courses in the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 increased by 5.1% year-over-year to approximately 307,000 from approximately 292,200 in the same period of the prior fiscal year.

GAAP operating costs and expenses for the quarter were US$62.1 million, representing a 27.9% increase year-over-year. Non-GAAP operating costs and expenses for the quarter were US$57.7 million, representing a 30.5% increase year-over-year.

Cost of revenues increased by 28.1% year-over-year to US$27.8 million, primarily due to the increased number of courses and the greater number of schools and learning centers in operation.

Selling and marketing expenses increased by 40.8% year-over-year to US$11.7 million, primarily due to brand promotion expenses, especially for new programs such as U-Can and the customized learning program.

GAAP general and administrative expenses were US$22.6 million, representing a 21.9% increase year-over-year. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses for the quarter increased by 28.5% year-over-year to US$18.5 million, primarily due to increased headcount as the Company expanded its network of schools and learning centers.

Total share-based compensation expenses, which were allocated to related operating costs and expenses, increased slightly to US$4.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 from US$4.3 million in the same period of the prior fiscal year.

GAAP loss from operations for the quarter was US$0.9 million, compared to an income from operations of US$0.9 million in the same period of the prior fiscal year, and Non-GAAP income from operations for the quarter was US$3.5 million, compared to US$5.2 million in the same period of the prior fiscal year.

GAAP operating margin for the quarter was negative 1.5%, compared to 1.8% in the same period of the prior fiscal year. Non-GAAP operating margin for the quarter was 5.6%, compared to 10.5% in the same period of the prior fiscal year. This decline in operating margin was primarily due to the negative impact from the H1N1 flu pandemic and the increased marketing expenses for brand promotion, especially for new programs such as U-Can and the customized learning program.

GAAP net income for the quarter was US$1.1 million, representing a 63.9% decrease from the same period of the prior fiscal year. Basic and diluted net income per ADS were US$0.03 and US$0.03, respectively.

Non-GAAP net income was US$5.5 million, representing a 25.8% decrease from the same period of the prior fiscal year. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ADS were US$0.15 and US$0.14, respectively.

Capital expenditures for the quarter were US$3.4 million, which was primarily used to add a net of 11 new learning centers and remodel older learning centers during the quarter.

As of November 30, 2009, New Oriental had cash and cash equivalents of US$210.6 million, as compared to US$238.7 million as of August 31, 2009. In addition, the Company had US$141.7 million in term deposits at the end of the quarter. Net operating cash flow generated for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 was US$9.6 million.

The deferred revenue balance (cash collected from registered students for courses and to be recognized proportionally as revenue as the instructions are delivered) at the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 was US$71.1 million, representing an increase of 34.9% from US$52.7 million at the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2009.

Financial Results for the Six Months Ended November 30, 2009

For the first six months of fiscal year 2010, New Oriental reported net revenues of US$210.6 million, representing a 25.6% increase year-over-year.

Total student enrollments in language training and test preparation courses in the first six months of fiscal year 2010 increased by 14.0% to approximately 954,500 from approximately 837,600 in the same period of the prior fiscal year.

GAAP income from operations for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 was US$60.0 million, representing a 20.7% increase year-over-year. Non-GAAP income from operations for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 was US$68.1 million, representing a 17.5% increase year-over-year.

GAAP operating margin for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 was 28.5%, compared to 29.7% for the same period of the prior fiscal year. Non- GAAP operating margin for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 was 32.3%, compared to 34.5% for the same period of the prior fiscal year.

GAAP net income for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 was US$58.2 million, representing a 21.3% increase year-over-year. GAAP basic and diluted earnings per ADS for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 amounted to US$1.54 and US$1.50, respectively.

Non-GAAP net income for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 was US$66.2 million, representing a 17.9% increase year-over-year. Non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per ADS for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 amounted to US$1.76 and US$1.71, respectively.

Outlook for the Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2010

New Oriental expects its total net revenues in the third quarter of fiscal year 2010 (December 1, 2009 to February 28, 2010) to be in the range of US$82.5 million to US$85.1 million, representing year-over-year growth in the range of 26% to 30%, respectively. Please note that Chinese New Year 2010 will occur on February 14, 19 days later than the corresponding date in 2009 when Chinese New Year occurred on January 26, 2009. The Company believes that the late timing of Chinese New Year in 2010 will have the effect of pushing some enrollments into the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010 at the expense of the third quarter of fiscal year 2010 as students return to their formal studies and enroll in New Oriental's Spring classes in early March 2010. The opposite occurred in 2009, due to the early timing of Chinese New Year, when students returned to their formal studies in mid-February 2009 and enrolled in Spring classes in the third quarter instead of the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009. Therefore, in fiscal year 2009, New Oriental recorded third quarter enrollment growth of 31% and fourth quarter enrollment growth of only 8% as enrollments shifted to the third quarter of 2009 from the fourth quarter of 2009. This forecast reflects New Oriental's current and preliminary view, which is subject to change.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement New Oriental's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, New Oriental uses the following measures defined as non- GAAP financial measures by the SEC: net income excluding share-based compensation expenses, operating income excluding share-based compensation expenses, operating costs and expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, general and administrative expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, operating margin excluding share-based compensation expenses, and basic and diluted net income per ADS excluding 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 "Reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this release.

New Oriental believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding share-based compensation expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. New Oriental believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to 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 New Oriental's historical performance and liquidity. New Oriental computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter. New Oriental 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 these non-GAAP financial measures is that these non-GAAP measures exclude the share- based compensation charge that has been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in our 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.
