Noah Holdings Limited Announces Unaudited Financial Results for the First Quarter of 2016

SHANGHAI, May 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Noah Holdings Limited ("Noah" or the "Company") (NYSE: NOAH), a leading wealth and asset management service provider with a focus on global services for high net worth individuals and enterprises in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter of 2016.

Starting from the fourth quarter of 2015, the Company changed its reporting currency from the U.S. dollar ("US$") to the Renminbi ("RMB"). The change in reporting currency is to better reflect the Company's performance, as the majority of the Company's operations are conducted in RMB, to align the Company's reporting currency with its underlying operations and to reduce the impact that the increased volatility of the RMB to US$ exchange rate will have on the Company's reported operating results. This release contains translations of certain RMB amounts into US$ for convenience[1]. Prior period numbers have been recast into the new reporting currency.

    • General and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2016 were RMB24.6 million (US$3.8 million), an 81.9% increase from the corresponding period in 2015, mainly due to an increase in rental and related expenses associated with the new head office building which was put into use in the first quarter of 2016.

DISCUSSION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES:

In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company's earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the effects of all forms of share-based compensation. The reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest GAAP measures is set forth in the table captioned "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results" below.

The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The financial results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP and reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measure used by the Company may be prepared differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.

When evaluating the Company's operating performance in the periods presented, management reviewed non-GAAP net income results reflecting adjustments to exclude the impact of share-based compensation to supplement U.S. GAAP financial data. As such, the Company believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP income per diluted ADS and non-GAAP net margin provides important supplemental information to investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations in a manner consistent with that used by management. Pursuant to U.S. GAAP, the Company recognized significant amounts of expenses for the restricted shares and share options in the periods presented. The Company utilized the non-GAAP financial results to make financial results comparable period to period and to better understand its historical business operations.
