I would like to update everyone with a number of exciting developments and achievements with respect to CMGE's self-developed games, game publishing, intellectual property, user acquisitions, game engine and user community development. We believe these developments and achievements have positioned our company for long-term growth.

"Self-developed games: CMGE currently has 21 game development workshops. In the second quarter, we continue to develop many mobile games based on intellectual property ("IP") that we have already acquired, with majority of them expected to launch in the third and fourth quarter. Beginning in September, we plan to launch one popular self-developed game each month. At the end of September, CMGE plans to launch a massively multiplayer online action role playing game ("MMOARPG"), The New Legend, which is co-developed with 7cool. The game is based on the Legend series, the name rights of which Shanda Games has authorized us to use. This is the first official mobile game based on The Legend series. The World of Legend has accumulated an extensive player base over the past 11 years in China. The New Legend will be the first official mobile game of this series incorporating real-time communication, allowing players to interact by voice in real-time. Our first large scale multiplayer action role-playing game ("ARPG"), Shang Gu Dou Hunwill enter open beta testing in early October. The closed beta testing of another mobile game, Xing Yue Chuan Qi, will be conducted during early November and is scheduled to be launched simultaneously with the TV drama of the same name, for which we obtained the IP rights. In addition to new products, our existing self-developed game Joyful Da Ying Jiacontinues to generate revenue growth quarter-over-quarter. We look forward to continue strong growth of our self-developed games during the third quarter and aim to become one of the top five mobile game developers in China by the end of 2014."

"Publishing business: In the second quarter, our existing published games such as Wu Xia Q Zhuan, Monster Island, Ji Zhan San Guo (previously San Guo Zhi Wei Li Jia Qiang Ban, Minion Rush and Riptide 2continue to generate growth in number of active users, number of paid users and revenues. In the second quarter, we launched four new games, namely, Super Hero, Barcode Footballer, Bu Bu Jing Qingand Da Nao Tian Gong HD. Among these games, it is worth mentioning that Super Hero has been extremely successful. It was launched on all Android platforms on May 20 with next day retention rates reaching 55% and 7-Day retention rates reaching 30%. Within two days of its launch in Apple Inc.'s App Store on June 12, it was ranked No. 1 among free-download games and No. 9 among best-selling games and has remained one of the top games in the App Store. Despite launching on Apple Inc.'s App Store in June, Super Hero has already generated monthly gross billings of over RMB40 million. In addition, the monthly gross billings of Da Nao Tian Gong HD reached over RMB8 million and conducted open beta testing on July 11. Barcode Footballer and Bu Bu Jing Qingare still in the beta testing stage and are scheduled to officially launch by the end of August. Among our products published overseas in Taiwan, Hong Kong & Macau, including Wu Shuang San Guo, Monster Island, Da Hua Xi You andWei Shou Lai Xi,Monster Islandand Da Hua Xi You have been consistently ranked among the top 20 paid games for iOS. In addition, Da Hua Xi You has continuously ranked among the top 5 free games for iOS. For the third quarter, CMGE has more exciting games in the pipeline to be published overseas, including games such as Chao Shen Xue Yuan, Chao Shen Lian Meng, Chao Shen Xiao Jing Lingand Da Nao Tian Gong HD. In addition, we expect to begin promoting Re Xue Zhan Ji in Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan in September, which we previously beta tested in China."

"Intellectual property: So far in 2014, we have already made many exciting achievements in our IP cooperation. In the area of animation, CMGE has been authorized by Toei Animation Co., Ltd. and has already begun to develop mobile games based on the famous Japanese animation One Piece and Ikkyu San. In addition, we have formed a strategic partnership with GREE to co-develop and publish the first official mobile game based on the famous animation, Naruto, in China. In terms of classic games, we have been granted the exclusive right by Tecmo Koei to publish a mobile game version of Uncharted Water 5in China. CMGE has also signed an agreement with SNK Playmore to publish classic games such as King of Fighters' 97, Samurai Spirits II and Metal Slug 2, as well as to develop card games based on Samurai Spirits. In the area of television, CMGE has obtained exclusive rights to produce mobile games based on Bu Bu Jing QingandXing Yue Chuan Qi. Bu Bu Jing Qingalready began closed beta testing in the second quarter. Finally, we have also obtained rights from the Shaolin Temple to develop mobile games with themes based on the Shaolin Temple. CMGE has also been self-developing its own IP called Hero's Blade, aspects of which are being produced by the former Blizzard team and the world-class team that previously produced League of Legend and Fates Forever. CMGE will continue to develop mobile games based on Hero's Blade as well as develop related products such as cartoons and other products."

"User acquisition: We have pre-installed our game center application on over 35 million handsets by the first half of this year and we are on target to pre-install our game center application on over 80 million handsets for the full 2014 year. CMGE has entered into strategic cooperation with a number of free wifi service providers and has been intensifying its cooperation with companies such as Bus Online Holdings Company Limited, Shenzhen Ju Yang Information Media Co. Ltd., Shenzhen Pay1pay Technology Co., Ltd., Beijing Zhong Jiao Xun Tong and Beijing Zhong Jiao Hui Neng. We believe our user acquisition resulting from the expansion of free wifi networks will increase significantly in the upcoming few quarters.

"Game Engine and User Community: CMGE has invested in and formed a strategic partnership with Beijing Super Flash Software Co. Ltd. ("Beijing Super Flash"), which announced on August 2 that its "Mobimirage" game engine began to be open to all game developers. We believe the high efficiency and excellent performance of this game engine will attract many game developers. We also believe that our strategic partnership with Beijing Super Flash will allow us to add many more outstanding games to our game pipeline. In addition, CMGE previously invested in Yunva Technology Co. Ltd., and in the second quarter, we began incorporating its two major products, YAYA Yu Yin and WAYA Shi Pin, into CMGE's products, including a series of poker games with live interactive voice and video communication that CMGE plans to launch in August. Moreover, in the many upcoming social games published by CMGE, we will incorporate YAYA Yu Yin to facilitate real time communication among players. Finally, during the second quarter, CMGE invested and entered into a strategic cooperation with Shenzhen Jin Huan Tian Lang Technology Co. Ltd. ("Jin Huan Tian Lang"), a leading mobile poker game company in China. Jin Huan Tian Lang's "Wa Wa Le Yuan" has a history of over 10 years dedicated to establishing a social platform based on poker games with multiple social functions, such as the "buddy system", instant messaging, virtual marriage, forums, photo albums and auctions, among others. Currently, Jin Huan Tian Lang has monthly gross billings of more than RMB45 million and MAUs of over 20 million.

According to the 2014 First Quarter Mobile Game Market Analysis Report published by Analysys International, CMGE again ranks first among China's mobile game publishers with 18.1% of market share in China (in terms of gross billings). In conclusion, during the second quarter of 2014, CMGE has seen positive growth with its self-developed games as well as publishing business. We believe CMGE's self-developing business growth will continue in the second half of 2014 and its publishing business will also record solid growth."

Mr. Ken Chang, CMGE's chief financial officer, added, I am pleased with our second quarter financial performance: revenues increased by 27.9% and net profit increased by 58.2% quarter-over-quarter. During the quarter, our self-developed games as well as our publishing distribution platform continued to deliver strong growth. Our operating data for both social games and single-player games recorded impressive growth. Paying users for social games and single-player games increased by 38.9% and 5.7%, respectively, compared to the prior quarter. Our net margin improved to 20.0%, up from 16.1% in the prior quarter. Our operating expenses as a percentage of revenues were comparable to the prior quarter. In addition, we continued to expand our top line while conducting prudent cost control management.

Organization restructuring of publishing business in June 2014

In June 2014, CMGE's CEO led an organizational restructuring of our game publishing business, one of our three business segments. The restructuring included personnel changes, relocation of employees and reassignment of managerial roles in our game publishing business. The primary purpose of the restructuring was to streamline the Company's operations, increase efficiencies and better position the Company for profitable long-term growth.

The reorganization had successfully completed and achieved our expected results. Substantially all of the management team members of the publishing division have got into new assignments within the division. Mr. Ying Shuling will continue to take part in driving the growth of CMGE's game publishing business.

Second Quarter 2014 Results

The sequential increase was mainly due to our continued success in our publishing business, namely the success of Super Hero which was launched in May. The year-over-year increase was due to the strong growth of both our self-developed social games, namely Joyful Da YinJia, and our publishing business. The number of paying users for our social games increased by 38.9% quarter-over-quarter and ARPU for the second quarter of 2014 of RMB40.1 was comparable to the prior quarter of RMB39.8. The growth of paying user in our social games was driven by newly published products such as Super Hero. Meanwhile, our single player games increased by 5.7% quarter-over-quarter and ARPU for the second quarter of 2014 of RMB15.6 was comparable to the prior quarter of RMB13.6.

Cost of Revenues

The sequential and year-over-year increases were primarily due to the increase in payments made to mobile carrier channels as our self-developed social game Joyful Da Yin Jia continued to grow, as well as an increase in our single player game publishing business.

The Company's overall gross margin was 61.0% during the second quarter of 2014, compared with 45.7% in the second quarter of 2013 and 62.9% in the first quarter of 2014. The year-over-year increase was due to an increase in revenues compared to fixed costs, which mainly consist of the amortization of intangible assets. The overall gross margin was comparable to the prior quarter.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses were RMB123.9 million (US$20.0 million) during the second quarter of 2014, compared with RMB46.1 million in the second quarter of 2013 and RMB97.4 million in the first quarter of 2014.

Selling expenses as a percentage of revenues was 25.2%, a decrease from 26.5% for the prior quarter and increased from 24.0% for the same quarter last year. Selling expenses as a percentage of revenues decreased sequentially because of effective marketing efforts, cost control and an increase in revenue. Selling expenses as a percentage of revenues was higher year-over-year as we continued to grow our business partly by increased marketing efforts and our revenues, gross margin and operating income increased significantly as a result.

General and administrative expenses were RMB32.2 million (US$5.2 million) during the second quarter of 2014, compared with RMB17.4 million in the second quarter of 2013 and RMB23.2 million for the prior quarter. General and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenues were 11.8%, an increase from 10.8% in the prior quarter and a decrease from 24.2% for the same quarter last year. General and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenues increased compared to the prior quarter because of higher share-based compensation incurred to motivate and reward our staff, increased overhead for expansion of our business to overseas markets as well as a RMB1.0 million provision cost related to our voluntary independent investigation. General and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenues decreased year-over-year as revenues increased substantially while general and administrative expenses were being controlled.

Research and development expenses were RMB22.6 million (US$3.6 million) during the second quarter of 2014, compared with RMB11.4 million in the second quarter of 2013 and RMB17.4 million in the prior quarter.

The year-over-year decrease was due to a substantial increase in revenues.

Share-based compensation expenses totaled RMB7.2 million (US$1.2 million) during the second quarter of 2014, compared with RMB8.6 million in the second quarter of 2013 and RMB3.6 million in the first quarter of 2014. The quarter-over-quarter increase was due to additional shared-based compensation granted to our employee in the second quarter. The year-over-year decrease was mainly due to warrants granted to a consultant during the same quarter last year which was recorded as an expense last year.  

Operating Income (Loss)

As a result of the above factors, the Company's operating income was RMB43.6 million (US$7.0 million) during the second quarter of 2014, compared with an operating loss of RMB13.2 million in the second quarter of 2013, RMB56.8 million higher year-over-year and an increase of 16.0% compared to operating income of RMB37.6 million in the first quarter of 2014.

Non-GAAP operating income excluding (1) share-based compensation and (2) independent committee investigation costs was RMB51.8 million (US$8.4 million) during the second quarter of 2014, an increase of RMB56.3 million compared with a non-GAAP operating loss of RMB4.5 million in the second quarter of 2013, and an increase of 25.7% compared with non-GAAP operating income of RMB41.2 million in the first quarter of 2014.

Other Income

Other income at RMB2.9 million (US$0.5 million) during the second quarter of 2014 mainly represented government grant and foreign exchange gain due to a stronger RMB exchange rate relative to the US dollar. Comparatively, the other income for the first quarter at RMB2.5 million mainly represented a rebate for our public shares offering received from our depositary. Other income for the same quarter last year mainly represented a reversal of accrued social insurance for a subsidiary which was disposed of in the same quarter last year.

Income Tax

The Company had an income tax benefit of RMB4.4 million (US$0.7 million) for the second quarter of 2014, compared and an income tax expense of RMB6.0 million in first quarter of 2014. The income tax benefit in the second quarter of 2014 was due to some of our subsidiaries obtaining tax concessions in the second quarter and the tax provisions for those subsidiaries for the prior quarter being reversed. The income tax benefit increased compared to the same quarter last year as minimal tax was paid as a result of the loss position of the Company in the same quarter last year.

Net Income (Loss)

Net income for the second quarter of 2014 was RMB54.9 million (US$8.8 million), compared with a net loss of RMB12.6 million in the second quarter of 2013 and net income of RMB34.7 million in the first quarter of 2014. Net income was RMB67.5 million higher year-over-year and 58.2% higher quarter-over-quarter. Net income was higher sequentially and year-over-year because of higher operating profit as our revenues increased while expenses increased to a lesser extent. In addition, net income was higher as a result of a tax benefit incurred in the second quarter of 2014. 

Non-GAAP net income excluding (1) share-based compensation and (2) independent committee investigation costs was RMB63.1 million (US$10.2 million) during the second quarter of 2014, compared with a non-GAAP net loss of RMB3.9 million in the second quarter of 2013 and non-GAAP net income of RMB38.3 million in the first quarter of 2014.
