Mr. Sheng Fu, Cheetah Mobile’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, "2014 was a break-through year for our mobile and global businesses and we finished on a high note with our mobile monthly active users quickly approaching the impressive 400 million users mark. Led by the success of Clean Master, we have built a strong product matrix of mobile apps in 2014 with four of our apps each accumulating more than 100 million downloads on Google Play. According to App Annie, Cheetah Mobile was the No. 2 publisher for non-game apps globally on Google Play, and the No. 1 publisher in the tools category for December 2014. This success helped drive mobile revenues to increase more than six times year over year and nearly double quarter over quarter in the fourth quarter, demonstrating our significant progress in mobile monetization. In addition, since we began our overseas monetization efforts in the second quarter of 2014, our overseas revenues have increased significantly and now account for 24% of our total revenues and 63% of mobile revenues in the fourth quarter. Given these strong secular trends, mobile will remain the key growth driver for our company and will account for more than 50% of total revenues by the end of the first half 2015. Additionally, our acquisition of MobPartner, when completed, will further enhance our global mobile monetization capabilities and expand our advertising footprint globally. Going forward, we remain focused on building one of the world’s leading mobile advertising platforms."

Mr. Andy Yeung, Cheetah Mobile’s Chief Financial Officer, commented, "Robust mobile performance again drove our strong topline growth this quarter. Total revenues grew 119% year-over-year and 23% quarter-over-quarter to RMB588.9 million, exceeding the high end of our previous guidance. The strong ramp-up in our mobile revenues, particularly in overseas markets, clearly validates our investments in the mobile and global arenas. In 2015, we will continue to invest aggressively in our mobile business and strengthen our foundation for continued success in this rapidly developing market.

REVENUES
Total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2014 increased by 118.8% to RMB588.9 million (US$94.9 million) from RMB269.2 million in the prior year period. This increase was driven by organic business growth, primarily due to substantial improvements in mobile monetization.

  • Revenues from online marketing services increased by 109.9% to RMB446.1 million (US$71.9 million) in the fourth quarter of 2014 from RMB212.5 million in the prior year period. This increase was primarily driven by strong demand for our mobile advertising business in both the domestic and overseas markets as well as the rapid growth of the worldwide mobile advertising market.

Cost of revenues increased by 178.4% to RMB141.0 million (US$22.7 million) in the fourth quarter of 2014 from RMB50.6 million in the prior year period.

Safe Harbor Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements. These statements, including management quotes and business outlook, constitute forward-looking statements under the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as "will," "expects," "anticipates," "future," "intends," "plans," "believes," "estimates" and similar statements. Such statements involve certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements about: Cheetah Mobile’s growth strategies; Cheetah Mobile’s ability to retain and increase its user base and expand its product and service offerings; Cheetah Mobile’s ability to monetize its platform; Cheetah Mobile’s future business development, financial condition and results of operations; competition from companies in a number of industries including internet companies that provide online marketing services and internet value-added services; expected changes in Cheetah Mobile’s revenues and certain cost or expense items; and general economic and business condition globally and in China. Further information regarding these and other risks is included in Cheetah Mobile’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Cheetah Mobile does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required under applicable law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement Cheetah Mobile’s consolidated financial information presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, Cheetah Mobile uses adjusted operating profit, adjusted operating margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net margin and adjusted diluted earnings per ADS, which are non-GAAP financial measures.

Adjusted operating profit and adjusted operating margin reflects operating profit excluding share-based compensation costs. Adjusted net income is net income excluding share-based compensation costs. Adjusted net margin is adjusted net income as a percentage of total revenues. Adjusted diluted earnings per ADS is adjusted net income or loss attributable to ordinary shareholders divided by weighted average number of diluted ADS.

The Company believes that separate analysis and exclusion of the non-cash impact of share-based compensation costs adds clarity to the constituent parts of its performance from the cash perspective. The Company reviews these non-GAAP financial measures together with GAAP financial measures to obtain a better understanding of its operating performance. It uses the non-GAAP financial measure for planning, forecasting and measuring results against the forecast. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measure is useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance without the effect of non-cash share-based compensation costs, which have been and will continue to be significant recurring expenses in its business. However, the use of non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not include all items that impact the Company’s net income for the period. In addition, because non-GAAP financial measures are not measured in the same manner by all companies, they may not be comparable to other similar titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider non-GAAP financial measure in isolation from or as an alternative to the financial measure prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Cheetah Mobile Inc. Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" at the end of this release.
