Cost of revenues was US$6.0 million, a 15% decrease from US$7.1 million during the same period last year, and a decrease of 35% from US$9.2 million during the last quarter. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to the decreases in operational and maintenance-related expenses, third-party outsourcing fee, salary and payroll expenses associated with cost staff and share-based compensation expenses, and was partially offset by an increase in content costs we paid to our signed authors and third-party content providers for the publishing and licensing of relevant online literature works. The sequential decrease was primarily due to decreases in operational and maintenance-related expenses, third-party outsourcing fee, salary and payroll expenses associated with cost staff and share-based compensation expenses, and content costs we paid to our signed authors and third-party content providers for the publishing and licensing of relevant online literature works.

Gross profit was US$47.0 million, a decrease of 51% from US$95.4 million during the same period last year, and an increase of 4% from US$45.2 million last quarter. Gross profit margin was 88.7%, compared with 93.1% in the same period last year and 83.1% last quarter.

Sales and marketing expenses were US$37.8 million, a decrease of 63% from US$102.0 million during the same period last year, and an increase of 18% from US$31.9 million last quarter. As a percentage of total revenues, sales and marketing expenses accounted for 71%, compared with 100% during the same period last year, and 59% last quarter. The year-over-year decrease in sales and marketing expenses was primarily due to the transition of the strategy in relation to the acquisition of new users and the retention of existing users which resulted in the reduction of the user acquisition costs. The sequential increase in sales and marketing expenses was primarily due to the increased investment in user acquisition in connection with our efforts to grow the user base, and was partially offset by decline in salary and payroll expenses associated with sales and marketing staff.

Research and development expenses were US$6.5 million, a slightly decrease from US$6.5 million during the same period last year and a decrease of 30% from US$9.2 million last quarter. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to a decline in share-based compensation expenses, and was partially offset by an increase in salary and payroll expenses associated with technology R&D staff. The sequential decrease was primarily due to a decrease in salary and payroll expenses associated with technology R&D staff, and was partially offset by an increase in third-party outsourcing fee. As a percentage of total net revenues, research and development expenses accounted for 12%, compared with 6% during the same period last year and 17% last quarter.

General and administrative expenses were US$3.4 million, a decrease of 13% from US$3.9 million during the same period last year and a decrease of 15% from US$4.0 million last quarter. The year-over-year decrease was mainly due to a decrease in salary and payroll expenses associated with G&A staff, third-party outsourcing fee and listing expenses. The sequential decrease was mainly due to a decrease in salary and payroll expenses associated with G&A staff, and was partially offset by a rise in listing expenses. As a percentage of total net revenues, general and administrative expenses accounted for 6%, compared with 4% during the same period last year and 7% during last quarter.

Other operating income, net was US$1.3 million, compared with other operating loss, net of US$2.0 million during the same period last year and other operating income, net of US$0.9 million last quarter. The other operating income mainly included government subsidy received.

Adjusted net income was US$0.5 million, compared with adjusted net loss of US$17.3 million in the same period last year and adjusted net income of US$0.4 million last quarter. The achievement of profitability compared with the adjusted net loss the same quarter last year was mainly due to the decrease in sales and marketing expenses as a percentage of total revenues driven by the continuous transition of the strategy in relation to the acquisition of new users and the retention of existing users. The sequential increase of profitability compared with the adjusted net income in the last quarter was mainly due to an increase in revenues.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

To supplement the unaudited consolidated financial information prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP"), the Company uses non-GAAP financial measure of adjusted net loss that is adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude the impact of share-based compensation, and Adjusted EBITDA that is net loss excluding interest income and expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and share-based compensation. The measure should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results.

The Company believes that the non-GAAP measure help identify underlying financial and business trends relating to the Company's results of operations that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain expenses that the Company include in loss from operations and net loss. By making the Company's financial results comparable period over period, the Company believes adjusted net loss and Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to better understand the Company's historical business operations and future prospects and allows for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the management in financial and operational decision-making. In order to mitigate these limitations, the Company has provided specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from the non-GAAP measure. The table at the bottom of this press release includes details on the reconciliation between GAAP financial measure that is most directly comparable to the non-GAAP financial measure the Company has presented.
