Phoenix New Media Reports First Quarter 2017 Unaudited Financial Results
Live Conference Call to be Held at 9:00 PM U.S. Eastern Time on May 14, 2017 By PR Newswire

BEIJING, May 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Phoenix New Media Limited (NYSE: FENG), a leading new media company in China ("Phoenix New Media", "ifeng" or the "Company"), today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017.

"We entered the year of 2017 with a challenging first quarter due to the continuing headwinds and changes in the Chinese advertising industry," stated Mr. Shuang Liu, CEO of Phoenix New Media. "However, we are pleased to see continued strengths on our ifeng news application, (we also see similar situation in Yidian Zixun, "Yidian" 1, a strategic investment of ifeng), as our mobile strategy continues to gain traction. Leveraging our strong media DNA and cutting-edge technology, we remain focused on providing our users with high-quality, professional media content tailored to their interests on their preferred medium. ifeng news application's daily active users increased by more than 10% quarter over quarter notwithstanding the Chinese New Year period in the first quarter when media outlets normally experience traffic drops. This clearly demonstrates that our differentiated media content is a top choice for high-end users and further underscores our achievements in balancing algorithm-driven news feeds and high-quality journalism that meets our users' individualized needs and interests. We remain confident that we have the right team and strategy in place to withstand the headwinds in the market and expand our market share with the increasing demand of newsfeed services throughout China."

Mr. Ya Li, co-president of Phoenix New Media, further stated, "In the past quarter, we continued to focus on and invest in content development, particularly through our consolidated we-media business and Feng Zhibo, our own live broadcasting brand. We live broadcasted more than 1,600 sessions in the first quarter of 2017, all of which were highly popular with our users and provided potential monetization opportunities. Looking ahead, in the mobile Internet era, the credibility of media outlets is becoming increasingly more important to both users and communities. Leveraging ifeng news application, we will be able to find the ideal balance between algorithm-driven content and professional journalism, making us one of the most efficient and valuable mobile gateways for Chinese users' media consumption, rather than a simple tool of news aggregation and distribution. We believe it applies to Yidian as well."


First Quarter 2017 Financial Results

REVENUES 
Total revenues for the first quarter of 2017 were RMB294.5 million (US$42.8 million), as compared to RMB322.9 million in the first quarter of 2016.

Net advertising revenues (net of advertising agency service fees) for the first quarter of 2017 were RMB241.1 million (US$35.0 million), as compared to RMB271.4 million in the first quarter of 2016, primarily attributable to the 21.5% decrease in PC advertising revenues.

Paid services revenues2 for the first quarter of 2017 increased to RMB53.4 million (US$7.8 million) from RMB51.6 million in the first quarter of 2016. Revenues from digital entertainment3 increased to RMB42.3 million (US$6.2 million) from RMB36.2 million in the first quarter of 2016, primarily attributable to the increase in digital reading revenues from RMB7.1 million in the first quarter of 2016 to RMB14.3 million (US$2.1 million) in the first quarter of 2017, representing a 101.6% year-over-year increase, partially offset by the decrease in mobile value-added services ("MVAS") revenues from RMB29.1 million in the first quarter of 2016 to RMB28.0 million (US$4.1 million) in the first quarter of 2017. The decrease in MVAS revenues mainly resulted from the decline in users' demand for services provided through telecom operators in China, which was consistent with the Company's expectations given the shrinking demand for such services in general. Revenues from games and others4 for the first quarter of 2017 decreased by 28.2% to RMB11.1 million (US$1.6 million) from RMB15.4 million in the first quarter of 2016, which was primarily attributable to the decrease in revenues generated from web-based games operated on the Company's own platform.

COST OF REVENUES
Cost of revenues for the first quarter of 2017 increased by 2.7% to RMB162.5 million (US$23.6 million) from RMB158.2 million in the first quarter of 2016, primarily attributable to the increase in content and operational cost. Content and operational costs for the first quarter of 2017 increased to RMB106.3 million (US$15.4 million) from RMB95.5 million in the first quarter of 2016, primarily attributable to the increase in content cost and advertisement-related content production cost. Revenue sharing fees to telecom operators and channel partners for the first quarter of 2017 decreased to RMB17.3 million (US$2.5 million) from RMB18.9 million in the first quarter of 2016, primarily attributable to the decrease in the sales of MVAS products. Bandwidth costs for the first quarter of 2017 decreased to RMB14.5 million (US$2.1 million) from RMB17.3 million in the first quarter of 2016. Sales taxes and surcharges for the first quarter of 2017 decreased to RMB24.3 million (US$3.5 million) from RMB26.5 million in the first quarter of 2016. Share-based compensation included in cost of revenues was RMB1.6 million (US$0.2 million) in the first quarter of 2017, as compared to RMB0.9 million in the first quarter of 2016. The change in share-based compensation was due to the newly granted share-based awards and the Company's option exchange program implemented in the fourth quarter of 2016.

GROSS PROFIT
Gross profit for the first quarter of 2017 was RMB132.0 million (US$19.2 million), as compared to RMB164.8 million in the first quarter of 2016. Gross margin for the first quarter of 2017 was 44.8%, as compared to 51.0% in the first quarter of 2016. The decrease in gross margin was primarily attributable to the increase in content and operational cost.

To supplement the financial measures presented in accordance with the United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), the Company has presented certain non-GAAP financial measures in this press release, which excluded the impact of certain reconciling items as stated in the "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" section below. The related reconciliations to GAAP financial measures are presented in the accompanying "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Results of Operation Measures to the Nearest Comparable GAAP Measures".

Non-GAAP gross margin for the first quarter of 2017, which excludes share-based compensation, was 45.4%, as compared to 51.3% in the first quarter of 2016.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2017 increased by 6.9% to RMB172.0 million (US$25.0 million) from RMB161.0 million in the first quarter of 2016, primarily attributable to the increase in mobile traffic acquisition expenses. Share-based compensation included in operating expenses was RMB6.6 million (US$1.0 million) in the first quarter of 2017, as compared to RMB3.2 million in the first quarter of 2016.

Loss from operations for the first quarter of 2017 was RMB40.1 million (US$5.8 million), as compared to income from operations of RMB3.8 million in the first quarter of 2016. Operating margin for the first quarter of 2017 was negative 13.6%, as compared to positive 1.2% in the first quarter of 2016, which was primarily attributable to the increase in advertisement-related content production cost and mobile traffic acquisition expenses.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with the United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), Phoenix New Media Limited uses non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP income/(loss) from operations, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to Phoenix New Media Limited, non-GAAP net profit margin and non-GAAP net income/(loss) per diluted ADS, each of which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Non-GAAP gross profit is gross profit excluding share-based compensation. Non-GAAP gross margin is non-GAAP gross profit divided by total revenues. Non-GAAP income/(loss) from operations is income/(loss) from operations excluding share-based compensation. Non-GAAP operating margin is non-GAAP income/(loss) from operations divided by total revenues. Non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to Phoenix New Media Limited is net income/(loss) attributable to Phoenix New Media Limited excluding share-based compensation and gain/(loss) from equity investments, including impairments. Non-GAAP net profit margin is non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to Phoenix New Media Limited divided by total revenues. Non-GAAP net income/(loss) per diluted ADS is non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to Phoenix New Media Limited divided by weighted average number of diluted ADSs. The Company believes that separate analysis and exclusion of the aforementioned non-GAAP to GAAP reconciling items add clarity to the constituent parts of its performance. The Company reviews these non-GAAP financial measures together with the related GAAP financial measures to obtain a better understanding of its operating performance. It uses these non-GAAP financial measures for planning, forecasting and measuring results against the forecast. The Company believes that using these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate its business allows both management and investors to assess the Company's performance against its competitors and ultimately monitor its capacity to generate returns for investors. The Company also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance without the effect of items like share-based compensation and loss from equity investments, including impairments, which have been and will continue to be significant and recurring in its business. However, the use of these non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not include all items that impact the Company's gross profit, income/(loss) from operations and net income/(loss) attributable to Phoenix New Media Limited for the period. In addition, because these non-GAAP financial measures are not calculated in the same manner by all companies, they may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider these non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as an alternative to, the financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

1 The Company has accounted for its investments in Yidian as available-for-sale investments.
2 Prior to 2016, the Company's paid services revenues mainly comprised of the revenues generated from MVAS and games and others. Digital reading was previously classified under "games and others". In order to align with the Company's overall strategies, digital reading was re-classified from "games and others", and digital reading together with MVAS was determined as "digital entertainment". Accordingly, the revenues from digital entertainment and the revenues from games and others for the first quarter of 2016 have been reclassified.
3 Digital entertainment includes MVAS and digital reading. MVAS includes mobile newspaper services, mobile video services, mobile game services, and wireless value-added services, or WVAS.
4 Games and others include web-based and mobile games, and other online and mobile paid services through the Company's own platforms.
5 "Others, net" primarily consists of government subsidies.
6 "ADS" means American Depositary Share of the Company. Each ADS represents eight Class A ordinary shares of the Company.
