SHANGHAI, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Noah Holdings Limited ("Noah" or the "Company") (NYSE: NOAH), a leading wealth and asset management services provider with a focus on global services for high net worth individuals and enterprises in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the third 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").

This release contains translations of certain RMB amounts into US$ for convenience purposes only1. Prior period numbers have been recast into the new reporting currency.

[1] Unless otherwise noted, all translations from RMB to U.S. dollars are made at a rate of RMB6.6685 to US$1.00, the effective noon buying rate for September 30, 2016 as set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board.

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the third quarter of 2016 were RMB608.5 million (US$91.2 million), a 16.9% increase from the corresponding period in 2015, primarily due to increases in one-time commissions and recurring service fees.

    • Net revenues from one-time commissions for the third quarter of 2016 were RMB279.3 million (US$41.9 million), a 59.0% increase from the corresponding period in 2015. The increase was primarily due to the change in the product mix.
    • Net revenues from recurring service fees for the third quarter of 2016 were RMB174.8 million (US$26.2 million), an 11.8% increase from the corresponding period in 2015.

    • Net revenues from performance-based income for the third quarter of 2016 were RMB1.2 million (US$0.2 million), compared to RMB33.9 million in the corresponding period in 2015, mainly due to a decrease in performance-based income from secondary market products compared to the corresponding period in 2015.
    • Net revenues from other service fees for the third quarter of 2016 were RMB19.4 million (US$2.9 million), up from RMB7.7 million in the corresponding period of 2015, reflecting the growth of other businesses within the wealth management segment.

    • Net revenues from recurring service fees for the third quarter of 2016 were RMB118.6 million (US$17.8 million), a 16.1% increase from the corresponding period in 2015. The increase was primarily due to the increase in assets under management by the Company.
    • Net revenues from performance-based income for the third quarter of 2016 were RMB3.5 million (US$0.5 million), a 86.6% decrease compared with the corresponding period in 2015, mainly due to a decrease in performance-based income from secondary market products compared to the corresponding period in 2015.
  • Internet Finance Business
    • Net revenues for the third quarter of 2016 were RMB11.4 million (US$1.7 million), a 28.4% decrease from the corresponding period in 2015, primarily due to the Company's internet finance business' strategic change this year to focus more on standardized wealth management products.

Operating costs and expenses for the third quarter of 2016 were RMB446.0 million (US$66.9 million), a 29.5% increase from the corresponding period in 2015.

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 attributable to Noah shareholders, non-GAAP net 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.
