Ms. Wei Liu, Giant's Chief Executive Officer commented, "We began 2014 with a sound quarter despite weaker seasonality and lack of new game launches during the first quarter. In-game spending declined sequentially as gamers traveled more during the Chinese New Year holiday. However, the high engagement and playing time demonstrate the enjoyment and loyalty our users experience in our games. Our existing games were stable during the first quarter as we prepared to launch new growth catalysts from our pipeline."

"Jianghu, our new flagship in-house developed MMORPG, entered into closed beta testing on May 16. We have provided our gamers with a brand new experience with innovative gameplay. Initial results have been quite positive, and we are confident the game will keep growing and be our largest catalyst this year. For licensed games, we have made good progress in the localization of Cang Tian 2. We are working closely with WeMade to prepare the game for the Chinese market launch later this year. We have also recently signed the Chinese publishing rights to another international blockbuster game. Both licensed games are complementary to our self-developed games and will help diversify our user base."

"During the quarter, we made considerable progress in our mobile game strategy, and we are excited to start capturing the growing mobile game market in China. We have recruited top talents to join our mobile division to strengthen our mobile game development and distribution capabilities. We are gearing up to launch our first self-developed mobile games and we have ten mobile game projects currently under development. These projects span multiple genres such as ARPG, card battle, tower defense, strategy and casual, to attract a diversity of mobile gamers. The projects are also a mix of internally developed, licensed from third party developers and developed by studios in which we are an equity investor. We have been working with famous intellectual properties, such as the Chinese version of the hit TV show, So You Think You Can Dance, to launch mobile games. Mobile is a priority for the future and we will also dedicate resources on mobile platforms, publishing, and M&A."

"With our elite game development and publishing capabilities, and diversification into multiple platforms and devices, we are confident in our growth prospects for 2014 and beyond."

First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Unaudited Financial Results

Net Revenue. Net revenue for the first quarter 2014 was RMB575.1 million (US$92.5 million), a 4.9% decrease from RMB604.6 million in the fourth quarter 2013, and a 0.4% increase from RMB572.8 million in the first quarter 2013.

Revenue from online games in the first quarter 2014 totaled RMB560.2 million (US$90.1 million), representing a 5.3% decrease from RMB591.8 million in the fourth quarter 2013, and a 0.5% increase from RMB557.3 million in the first quarter 2013.Online game revenue decreased sequentially as many gamers traveled during the Chinese New Year holiday and there were no new game launches during the first quarter.

APA for online games in the first quarter 2014 was 2,383,000, representing a 0.9% sequential increase and a 5.6% increase compared to the first quarter 2013. The sequential and year-over-year increases in APA were mainly due to the contribution from the ZT Online franchise. ARPU for online games in the first quarter 2014 was RMB230, representing a 6.7% sequential decrease and a 3.4% decrease over the first quarter 2013. The sequential decrease in ARPU was mainly due to seasonal fluctuation as a result of the Chinese New Year holiday, while the year-over-year decrease in ARPU was due to APA growing faster than revenue. ACU for online games in the first quarter 2014 was 695,000, which remained flat sequentially and year-over-year. PCU for online games in the first quarter 2014 was 2,220,000, nearly flat sequentially and down 2.7% compared to the first quarter 2013. The year-over-year decrease in PCU was mainly due to lack of major promotional activities in the first quarter 2014.

Cost of Services. Cost of services for the first quarter 2014 was RMB65.8 million (US$10.6 million), representing a 2.8% decrease from the fourth quarter 2013 and 20.1% decrease from the first quarter 2013. The sequential decrease in cost of services was mainly attributable to the higher cost of services recorded in the fourth quarter 2013 in connection with the year-end bonuses for our employees. The year-over-year decrease in cost of services was mainly due to lower costs accrued for the Company's licensed games in the first quarter 2014.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin. Gross profit for the first quarter 2014 was RMB509.4 million (US$81.9 million), representing a 5.1% decrease from the fourth quarter 2013 and a 3.9% increase from the first quarter 2013. Gross margin for the first quarter 2014 was 88.6%, nearly flat compared to the fourth quarter 2013 and up from 85.6% in the first quarter 2013.

Operating Expenses. Total operating expenses for the first quarter 2014 were RMB134.3 million (US$21.6 million), nearly flat compared to RMB134.8 million in the fourth quarter 2013 and a 3.7% increase from RMB129.6 million in the first quarter 2013. As a percentage of revenue, total operating expenses were 23.4% for the first quarter 2014, compared to 22.3% in the fourth quarter 2013 and 22.6% in the first quarter 2013. The year-over-year increase in operating expenses was mainly attributable to the increase in general and administrative ("G&A") expenses, partially offset by a decrease in research and product development ("R&D") expenses.

R&D expenses for the first quarter 2014 were RMB74.8 million (US$12.0 million), representing a 14.6% decrease from RMB87.5 million in the fourth quarter 2013 and a 3.6% decrease from RMB77.6 million in the first quarter 2013. As a percentage of revenue, R&D expenses were 13.0% for the first quarter 2014, compared to 14.5% in the fourth quarter 2013 and 13.5% in the first quarter 2013. The sequential decrease in R&D expenses was mainly attributable to higher R&D expenses recorded in the fourth quarter 2013 in connection with the year-end bonuses accrued for the Company's R&D staff. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to the Company's accelerated accounting policy in amortizing share-based compensation expenses. Such expenses generally decline from period to period.

Sales and marketing ("S&M") expenses for the first quarter 2014 were RMB30.7 million (US$4.9 million), representing a 7.7% increase from RMB28.6 million in the fourth quarter 2013, and a 1.3% increase from RMB30.3 million in the first quarter 2013. As a percentage of revenue, S&M expenses were 5.3% in the first quarter 2014, compared to 4.7% in the fourth quarter 2013 and 5.3% in the first quarter 2013. The sequential and year-over-year increases in S&M expenses were due to the promotion activities of Jianghu.

G&A expenses for the first quarter 2014 were RMB38.8 million (US$6.2million), representing a 14.6% increase from RMB33.9 million in the fourth quarter 2013, and a 22.8% increase from RMB31.6 million in the first quarter 2013. As a percentage of revenue, G&A expenses were 6.8% in the first quarter 2014, compared to 5.6% in the fourth quarter 2013 and 5.5% in the first quarter 2013. The sequential increase in G&A expenses was mainly due to the decrease in reimbursements related to our ADR program in the first quarter 2014. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to the increase in staff salary.

Government Financial Incentives. The government financial incentives, which mainly relate to the refund of business tax, value-added tax, and enterprise income tax from the Shanghai municipal government, were RMB10.0 million (US$1.6 million) in the first quarter 2014. The Company records such government financial incentives as a reduction in operating expenses.

Interest Income. Interest income for the first quarter 2014 was RMB28.3 million (US$4.5 million), representing a 26.9% decrease from RMB38.6 million in the fourth quarter 2013, and a 13.2% increase from RMB25.0 million in the first quarter 2013. The sequential decrease in interest income was mainly due to the early termination of certain short-term investments, while the year-over-year increase was due to the growing cash balance on certain short-term investments.

Income Tax. Income tax expense for the first quarter 2014 was RMB60.2 million (US$9.7 million), compared to income tax expense of RMB237.8 million in the fourth quarter 2013 and income tax expense of RMB48.0 million in the first quarter 2013. The sequential decrease in income tax expense was due to (a) higher withholding tax accrued in the fourth quarter 2013 in anticipation of the repatriation of earnings from the Company's PRC operations in connection with the privatization proposal which the Company received in November 2013, and (b) the reduction in corporate income tax rate from 15% to 10% for one of our subsidiaries, which was approved by the tax authority and such tax refund is expected to be received in the second quarter 2014. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to (a) higher withholding tax accrued in the first quarter 2014 in connection with the privatization proposal which the Company received in November 2013, and (b) the expiration of tax exemption periods for certain game development subsidiaries in the first quarter 2014, partially offset by the reduction in corporate income tax rate from 15% to 10% for one of our subsidiaries.

Net Income Attributable to the Company's Shareholders. Net income attributable to the Company's shareholders for the first quarter 2014 was RMB1,206.0 million (US$194.0 million), representing a 492.4% increase from RMB203.6 million in the fourth quarter 2013, and a 269.9% increase from RMB326.0 million in the first quarter 2013. The sequential and year-over-year increases in net income attributable to the Company's shareholders were primarily due to the one-off investment income in connection with the Company's sale of limited partnership interest in Yunfeng E-Commerce Funds in the first quarter 2014. The margin of net income attributable to the Company's shareholders for the first quarter 2014 was 209.7%, compared to 33.7% in the previous quarter and 56.9% in the first quarter 2013.

Non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company's shareholders for the first quarter 2014 was RMB343.1 million (US$55.2 million), representing a 21.5% decrease from RMB437.3 million in the fourth quarter 2013 and a 0.1% increase from RMB342.7 million in the first quarter 2013. Non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company's shareholders excludes certain items as described in further detail in the reconciliation table below. The margin of non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company's shareholders was 59.6% for the first quarter 2014, compared to 72.3% in the fourth quarter 2013 and 59.8% in the first quarter 2013.

Cash and Cash Equivalents and Short-Term Investments. As of March 31, 2014, the Company's cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investments totaled RMB 5,377.9 million (US$865.1 million), compared to RMB3,831.2 million as of December 31, 2013. The sequential increase was primarily due to the one-off investment income in connection with the Company's sale of limited partnership interest in Yunfeng E-Commerce Funds in the first quarter 2014.
