Commenting on the second quarter financial results, Mr. Chunlin Wang, CNinsure's chief executive officer, stated, "We are pleased to report significantly improved financial results for the second quarter of 2014, continuing the growth momentum of the prior two quarters. During the second quarter of 2014, total net revenues once again beat guidance, with 20.8% year-over-year growth, primarily driven by a strong growth across all of our business segments. In particular, our insurance brokerage business and claims adjusting business recorded impressive growth year-over-year while the life insurance agency business has finally yielded positive growth both year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter, after two years of negative growth. Our expense control initiatives continued to pay off, leading to major improvements in our operating income and earnings per share for three consecutive quarters.

"While expanding our off-line sales and service capabilities, we are dedicated to embracing the internet by establishing online financial product and services vertical portals and an online-to-offline ("O2O") ecological circle to support our offline operations. With a clear vision of our strategic direction, our goal, and the path to achieving it, we have rolled out several customer acquisition and online transaction platforms, including CNpad App and eHuzhu program (www.ehuzhu.com), a non-profit mutual aid platform. In the meantime, we have completed the restructuring of our offline operations which boasts a well-established nationwide sales and services network to provide our clients with the highest quality of financial products and services. Starting from the third quarter of 2014, we plan to push forward initiatives to strengthen our online customer acquisition and transaction platforms, and to seamlessly connect our offline sales and service capabilities with our online platforms. Several intensive marketing programs will also be initiated." Mr. Wang added, "In order to provide more visibility into the Company's growth prospects, we plan to host a corporate day in mid October to announce our O2O internet strategy and its impact on our financial results."

"We remain upbeat about our future and believe we have the right strategy and are on track to achieve strong sustainable growth over the long term."

Changes in Segment Reporting

In the first quarter of 2014, the Company realigned its financial reporting structure into four business segments that more accurately reflect its organizational structure and changing business mix. Historical results reflecting the new business segments for the corresponding period of the previous year are also presented in the Company's interim financial statements. Under the realigned business structure, the four business segments are as follows:

(1) insurance agency business segment, which mainly consists of providing agency services for property and casualty ("P&C") insurance products and life insurance products to individual clients,

(2) insurance brokerage business segment, which mainly consists of providing P&C and life insurance brokerage services to institutional clients,

(3) claims adjusting segment, which consists of providing pre-underwriting survey, claim adjusting, disposal of residual value, loading and unloading supervision and consulting services, and

(4) other services, which include non-insurance related services.

Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2014

Total net revenues were RMB508.9 million (US$82.0 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 20.8% from RMB421.3 million for the corresponding period in 2013.

Net revenues of insurance agency business were RMB379.4 million (US$61.2 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 9.7% from RMB345.9 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase was primarily driven by a 10.9% increase in net revenues derived from the P&C insurance agency business and a 2.7% increase in net revenues derived from the life insurance agency business. The growth of the P&C insurance agency business was primarily due to a 18.5% growth in sales volume, attributable to both solid organic growth and contributions from the acquisitions of three insurance agencies in the second quarter of 2014, offset by a slight decline in the commission rates that we received from the insurance companies for which we act as their agents. The growth of the life insurance agency business was primarily driven by a 36% increase in commissions derived from new policy sales, offset by a decline in renewal commissions resulting from a decline in new policy sales in the past two years and a decline in commissions derived from the sales of short term life insurance products. Revenues generated from insurance agency business accounted for 74.6% of total net revenues.

Net revenues of insurance brokerage business were RMB55.1 million (US$8.9 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 421.3% from RMB10.6 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase was primarily attributable to the low base in this segment during the second quarter of 2013 and an increase in our customer base as a result of efforts to expand sales channels, develop innovative product offerings and cultivate markets in the past three years. Revenues generated from the insurance brokerage business accounted for 10.8% of total net revenues.

Net revenues of claims adjusting business were RMB74.3 million (US$12.0 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 22.6% from RMB60.6 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase was primarily attributable to a 27.8% growth in the non-auto insurance related claims adjusting business in the second quarter of 2014 from the corresponding period in 2013 as the result of a significant increase in cases assigned to us and settled during the second quarter of 2014. In addition a 19.2% growth in the auto insurance related claims adjusting business which was due to both organic growth of existing branches and greater contributions from branches that were newly established in 2012 and 2013. Revenues generated from the claims adjusting business accounted for 14.6% of total net revenues.

Total operating costs and expenses were RMB490.1 million (US$79.0 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 16.4% from RMB421.1 million for the corresponding period in 2013.

Total operating costs were RMB376.1 million (US$60.6 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 20.1% from RMB313.0 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase was primarily due to sales growth.

Costs of insurance agency business were RMB291.7 million (US$47.0 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 8.5% from RMB268.9 million for the corresponding period in 2013, primarily driven by a 10.6% increase in costs for the P&C insurance agency business and offset by a 4.4% decrease in costs for the life insurance agency business. The growth in costs for the P&C insurance agency business was largely in line with the growth in net revenues of P&C insurance agency business while the decline in costs for the life insurance business was primarily attributable to a decline in costs associated with the renewal of life insurance policies. Costs incurred by the insurance agency business accounted for 77.6% of operating costs.

Costs of insurance brokerage business were RMB44.3 million (US$7.1 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 455.2% from RMB8.0 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase was primarily due to sales growth. Costs incurred by the insurance brokerage business accounted for 11.8% of operating costs.

Costs of claims adjusting business were RMB40.0 million (US$6.5 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 17.3% from RMB34.1 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase was primarily attributable to sales growth and increased salaries for claims adjustors. Costs incurred by the claims adjusting business accounted for 10.6% of operating costs.

Selling expenses were RMB24.4 million (US$3.9 million) for the second quarter of 2014, which was consistent with the corresponding period in 2013. This represents a decline in staff salary and social security contributions as a result of combining the operations of our P&C insurance and life insurance businesses in the fourth quarter of 2013, offset by increases in vehicle, office and marketing expenses.

General and administrative expenses were RMB89.7 million (US$14.5 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 7.2% from RMB83.7 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The slight increase was primarily due to:

(1) a 92.2% increase in research and development expenses, from RMB4.2 million for the second quarter of 2013 to RMB8.0 million (US$1.3 million) for the corresponding period in 2014;

(2) a 18.0% increase in staff salary expenses, from RMB27.5 million for the second quarter of 2013 to RMB32.5 million (US$5.2 million) for the corresponding period in 2014; offset by

(3) a 34.1% decrease in share-based compensation expenses, from RMB10.2 million for the second quarter of 2013 to RMB6.7 million (US$1.1 million) for the second quarter of 2014. Share-based compensation expenses were mainly associated with stock options granted to certain employees in March 2012, which were recognized on an accelerated basis and such expenses are expected to decrease each year after the grant.

As a result of the preceding factors, income from operations was RMB18.7 million (US$3.0 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 9,465.2% from RMB0.2 million for the corresponding period in 2013.

Operating margin was 3.7% for the second quarter of 2014, compared with 0.05% for the corresponding period in 2013.

Investment income was RMB17.1 million (US$2.8 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 1,193.8% from RMB1.3 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in the yields from trust products in which we began investing in March 2013 from RMB1.3 million to RMB8.3 million (US$1.3 million) in the second quarter of 2014 and the recognition of RMB8.8 million (US$1.4 million) in investment income relating to the revaluation of the 30% equity interests held by the Company in Jiaxing Lianbao Insurance Agency Co., Ltd. ("Jiaxing Lianbao") when it acquired the remaining 70% equity interests in the second quarter of 2014.

Interest income was RMB21.8 million (US$3.5 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 7.2% from RMB20.3 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase in interest income was primarily due to an increase in interest bearing receivables from related parties.

Income tax expense was RMB7.3 million (US$1.2 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 25.3% from RMB5.8 million for the corresponding period in 2013; mainly due to an increase in operating income. The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2014 was 12.5% compared with 24.8% for the corresponding period in 2013. The decrease in effective tax rate was primarily due to the recognition of investment income relating to the revaluation gain for acquisition of the remaining equity interests in Jiaxing Lianbao and a tax holiday enjoyed by one of our subsidiaries.

Share of income of affiliates was RMB8.1 million (US$1.3 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 51.6% from RMB5.3 million for the corresponding period in 2013, mainly representing an increase of profits from China Financial Services Group Limited, in which we own 20.6% of the equity interests.

Net income attributable to the Company's shareholders was RMB55.2 million (US$8.9 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 163.8% from RMB20.9 million for the corresponding period in 2013.

Net margin was 10.9% for the second quarter of 2014 compared with 5.0% for the corresponding period in 2013.

Basic and diluted net income per ADS were RMB1.10 (US$0.18) and RMB1.10 (US$0.18) for the second quarter of 2014, respectively, representing increases of 163.4% and 162.8% from RMB0.42 and RMB0.42 for the corresponding period in 2013, respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA was RMB45.2 million (US$7.3 million) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 57.4% from RMB28.7 million for the corresponding period in 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA margin was 8.9% for the second quarter of 2014, compared with 6.8% for the corresponding period in 2013.

Diluted adjusted EBITDA per ADS was RMB0.90 (US$0.15) for the second quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 57.0% from RMB0.58 for the corresponding period in 2013.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had RMB2.0 billion (US$323.8 million) in cash and cash equivalents.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the Company's consolidated financial results under GAAP, the Company also provides adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and diluted adjusted EBITDA per ADS, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income before income tax expense, investment income, interest income, depreciation, amortization and compensation expenses associated with stock option. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as adjusted EBITDA divided by total net revenues. Diluted adjusted EBITDA per ADS is defined as adjusted EBITDA divided by total number of diluted shares. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the Company's performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. One limitation of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that these non-GAAP measures exclude the items that were significant in the second quarter of 2014 and the corresponding period of 2013, and these items have been, and will continue to be, a significant recurring factor in our business.

In light of the limitations, 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. We encourage investors and other interested persons to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
