Software revenue for the second quarter 2016 decreased 14% year-over-year to RMB10.2 million (US\\$1.5 million) from RMB11.9 million in the second quarter 2015.  The decrease was primarily attributable to the continued reduction of new physical retail stores under current macro economic conditions.

Hardware revenue in the second quarter 2016 decreased 84% year-over-year to RMB0.6 million (US\\$0.09 million) from RMB3.7 million in the second quarter 2015.  The decrease was a result of the completion of a few one-off large projects in the logistics and grocery industries in the second quarter 2015.

Service fee revenue for the second quarter 2016 slightly decreased 1% year-over-year to RMB17.0 million (US\\$2.6 million) from RMB17.2 million in the second quarter 2015.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit for the second quarter 2016 was RMB10.7 million (US\\$1.6 million), compared with RMB11.8 million in the second quarter 2015, and consolidated gross margin for the second quarter 2016 was improved to 39% from 36% in the second quarter 2015. This improvement was primarily due to decreases in the proportion of lower margin hardware revenue in the second quarter 2016.

Operating Expenses

Research and development (R&D) expenses for the second quarter 2016 decreased 35% year-over-year to RMB0.7 million (US\\$0.1 million), or 3% of total revenue, compared with RMB1.1 million, or 3% of total revenue in the second quarter 2015. The decrease in R&D expense was primarily attributable to the Companys decision to streamline its R&D investment to more accurately position its products.

General and administrative expenses (G&A) for the second quarter 2016 increased 2% year-over-year to RMB8.3 million (US\\$1.3 million), representing 30% of total revenue, compared with RMB8.1 million, or 25% of total revenue in the second quarter 2015. 

Selling and distribution (S&D) expenses for the second quarter 2016 decreased 9% year-over-year to RMB7.4 million (US\\$1.1 million), representing 27% of total revenue, compared with RMB8.1 million, or 25% of total revenue in the second quarter 2015. The decrease in S&D expenses was in line with the decrease in total revenue, excluding hardware sales.

Operating Loss

Operating loss in the second quarter 2016 was RMB5.7 million (US\\$0.9 million), compared to operating loss of RMB5.6 million in the second quarter 2015.

Net Loss/Adjusted Net Loss and Loss Per Share/Adjusted Loss Per Share

Second quarter 2016 net loss was RMB5.7 million (US\\$0.9 million), compared with a net loss of RMB6.0 million in the second quarter 2015.  Adjusted net loss for the second quarter 2016 was RMB2.1 million (US\\$0.3 million), compared with an adjusted net loss of RMB3.7 million in the second quarter 2015.

Basic loss per share in the second quarter 2016 was RMB1.06 (US\\$0.16), compared to basic loss per share of RMB1.25 in the second quarter 2015.  Diluted loss per share in the second quarter 2016 was RMB1.03 (US\\$0.15), compared to diluted loss per share of RMB1.22 in the second quarter 2015. Adjusted diluted loss per share was RMB0.39 (US\\$0.06), compared to adjusted diluted loss per share of RMB0.76 in the second quarter 2015.

EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter 2016 was negative RMB1.7 million (US\\$ 0.3 million), compared to negative RMB2.8 million in the second quarter 2015.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of June 30, 2016, cash and cash equivalents were RMB36.7 million (US\\$5.5 million), a decrease of RMB60.0 million from RMB96.7 million as of December 31, 2015. The decrease was primarily attributable to the payment of annual bonuses, taxes and proceeds from the exercise of stock options and restricted shares by employees.

Total trades receivable as of June 30, 2016 decreased 25% to RMB41.0 million (US\\$6.2 million) from RMB54.7 million as of December 31, 2015.  The decrease was primarily due to the improved internal control procedures enhancing on time payments made by customers.   

Inventory and work in process as of June 30, 2016 increased 126% to RMB34.7 million (US\\$5.2 million) from RMB15.4 million as of December 31, 2015.  The increase was primarily attributable to a greater number of on-going projects, which had not reached the point of revenue recognition.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2016, net cash provided by operating activities was RMB1.2 million (US\\$0.2 million).  Net cash provided by investing activities was RMB4.0 million (US\\$0.6 million). Net cash used in financing activities was RMB0.5 million (US\\$0.07 million).

Update on Tax Inspection

In November 2015, the Beijing tax authority conducted a tax inspection on our wholly owned subsidiary, eFuture Beijing for the period from 2004 to 2014. Due to the timing difference between financial reporting and tax reporting regarding the realization of income from revenue and advance payments from customers, the Beijing tax authority has taken the position that eFuture Beijing failed, under local tax regulations, to recognize income and, therefore timely file tax payments. Based on our internal estimates, eFuture Beijing may be required to pay the unpaid taxes and possibly a fine and late payment fees, in the range RMB6.0 million  (US\\$0.9 million) and RMB30.9 million (US\\$4.6 million). In our previously filed U.S. financial statements, we have provided adequate provisions for the unpaid taxes and there was no significant impact on the financial condition of the Company. Although the Beijing tax authority has not yet issued any decision regarding the payment deadline of any unpaid tax or the amount of fine and late payment fees (if any), in first and second quarter 2016 eFuture voluntarily paid RMB4.2 million (US\\$0.6 million) and RMB4.1 million (US\\$0.6 million) respectively, to the Beijing tax authority to start to make up the unpaid tax.

THIRD QUARTER 2016 GUIDANCE

eFuture expects total revenue for the third quarter 2016 to be in the range of RMB31 million (US\\$4.7 million) to RMB37 million (US\\$5.6 million). Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter 2016 is expected to be in the range of negative RMB4 million (US\\$0.6 million) to RMB0 million (US\\$0 million).

CURRENCY CONVENIENCE TRANSLATION

For the convenience of readers, certain RMB amounts have been translated into US dollars at the rate of RMB6.6459 to US\\$1.00, the noon buying rate for U.S. dollars in effect on June 30, 2016 for cable transfers of RMB per U.S. dollar as certified for customs purposes by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

To supplement eFutures unaudited consolidated financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, eFuture uses the following non-GAAP measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission: (i) adjusted EBITDA excluding amortization of acquired software technology, amortization of intangibles, impairment of intangible assets, share-based compensation expenses and depreciation; (ii) adjusted net income excluding amortization of acquired software technology, amortization of intangibles, impairment of intangible assets, share-based compensation expenses and accretion on convertible notes; and (iii) adjusted basic and diluted earnings per share excluding amortization of acquired software technology, amortization of intangibles, share-based compensation expenses and accretion on convertible notes.

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 U.S. GAAP.

eFuture believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective or be indicative of its operating performance.  eFuture believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the Companys performance and when planning and forecasting future periods.  These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate managements internal comparisons to eFutures historical performance and liquidity.  eFuture computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter.  The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making.  The accompanying paragraphs have more details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.

eFutures management also believes that EBITDA, defined as earnings before interest, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization is a useful financial metric to assess its operating and financial performance before the impact of investing and financing transactions and income taxes.  In addition, eFutures management believes that EBITDA is widely used by other companies in the software industry and may be used by investors as a measure of its financial performance.  Given the significant investments eFuture has made in property, equipment, depreciation and amortization expense comprises a meaningful portion of the Companys cost structure, eFutures management believes that EBITDA will provide investors with a useful tool for comparability between periods because it eliminates depreciation and amortization expense attributable to capital expenditures.  The presentation of EBITDA should not be construed as an indication that the Companys future results will be unaffected by other charges and gains eFuture considers to be outside the ordinary course of its business.

The use of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations. Depreciation and amortization expense for various long-term assets, income tax expense, interest expense and interest income have been and will be incurred and are not reflected in the presentation of EBITDA.  Further, share-based compensation expenses have been and will be incurred and are not reflected in the presentation of adjusted EBITDA.  Each of these items should also be considered in the overall evaluation of eFutures financial results.  The term EBITDA or adjusted EBITDA is not defined under U.S. GAAP, and EBITDA or adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of net income, operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  When assessing eFutures operating and financial performance, you should not consider this data in isolation or as a substitute for its net income, operating income or any other operating performance measure that is calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  In addition, the Companys EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to EBITDA or similarly titled measures utilized by other companies since such other companies may not calculate EBITDA in the same manner as eFuture.
