Third Quarter Highlights

  • Total revenues were US$411 million[1], down 21% year-over-year and 2% quarter-over-quarter.
  • Brand advertising revenues were US$111 million, down 27% year-over-year and 2% quarter-over-quarter.
  • Sogou[2] revenues were US$166 million, up 2% year-over-year and down 6% quarter-over-quarter.
  • Online game revenues were US$99 million, down 35% year-over-year and largely flat quarter-over-quarter.
  • GAAP net loss attributable to Sohu.com Inc. was US$75 million, or US$1.94 loss per fully-diluted share.
  • Non-GAAP[3] net loss attributable to Sohu.com Inc. was US$65 million, or US$1.68 loss per fully-diluted share.

Dr. Charles Zhang, Chairman and CEO of Sohu.com Inc., commented, "In the third quarter, the Group total revenues reached our prior guidance amid challenging operating climate that mainly affected our online advertising businesses. By business unit, for Sohu Media Portal, we strived to bring users high quality and enriched content while continued to optimize Sohu News App design. Sohu Video accelerated investment in self-developed content that would benefit our subscription business and help improve the cost structure. For Sogou, it continued to enhance its vertical search capability while the mobile search traffic maintained strong momentum. Changyou delivered better-than-expected results as its existing games performed steadily while the development of new mobile games was well on track."

Mr. Xiaochuan Wang, CEO of Sogou, commented, "In the third quarter, Sogou continued its efforts in product differentiation and focused on AI-powered technology innovation. Traffic share and revenue were trending higher. Mobile search traffic more than doubled from a year ago and grew 16% sequentially. Financially, quarterly total revenues reached US$166 million, or RMB1.11 billion, up 9% year-over-year in RMB terms."

[1] For the third quarter of 2016, on yearly basis, depreciation of the RMB against the U.S. dollar impacted our reported financial results. Should the exchange rate of RMB6.26=US$1.00 be used as the same of the third quarter of 2015, total revenues in the third quarter of 2016 would have been US$437 million, or US$26 million higher than the GAAP total revenue, or down 16% year-over-year.

[2] Sogou operates the search and search-related business and offers Internet value-added services ("IVAS") with respect to Web games developed by third-party developers. In the statements of operations, revenues from search and search-related services are recorded as "Search and search-related" revenue, and revenues from IVAS are recorded as "Others" revenue. 

[3] Non-GAAP results exclude share-based compensation expense, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions and dividend and deemed dividend to non-controlling preferred shareholders of Sogou. Explanation of the Company's non-GAAP financial measures and related reconciliations to GAAP financial measures are included in the accompanying "Non-GAAP Disclosure" and "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Results of Operation Measures to the Nearest Comparable GAAP Measures."

Third Quarter Financial Results 

Revenues

Total revenues for the third quarter of 2016 were US$411 million, down 21% year-over-year and 2% quarter-over-quarter.

Total online advertising revenues, which include revenues from the brand advertising and search and search-related businesses, for the third quarter of 2016 were US$262 million, down 13% year-over-year and 4% quarter-over-quarter.

Brand advertising revenues for the third quarter of 2016 totaled US$111 million, down 27% year-over-year and 2% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year decrease was mainly attributable to the decrease in the video advertising businesses. Revenues of Sohu Media Portal, or Sohu.com excluding Sohu Video, were US$48 million, down 6% year-over-year and up 2% quarter-over-quarter. Revenues of Sohu Video were US$25 million, down 54% year-over-year and 20% quarter-over-quarter.  

Search and search-related revenues for the third quarter of 2016 were US$151 million, up 2% year-over-year and down 6% quarter-over-quarter. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was largely due to a negative impact from new regulations with respect to search advertising.

Online game revenues for the third quarter of 2016 were US$99 million, down 35% year-over-year and largely flat quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year decrease was mainly due to the natural decline in revenues of older games, such as TLBB and TLBB 3D, and a decrease in Web game revenues upon the completion of the sale of the 7Road business during the third quarter of 2015.

Gross Margin

Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin was 46% for the third quarter of 2016, compared with 59% in the third quarter of 2015 and 49% in the second quarter of 2016.

Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin for the online advertising business for the third quarter of 2016 was 32%, compared with 49% in the third quarter of 2015 and 39% in the second quarter of 2016.

Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin for the brand advertising business in the third quarter of 2016 was 8%, compared with 40% in the third quarter of 2015 and 17% in the second quarter of 2016. The year-over-year decrease was mainly due to decreased video revenues. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly due to an increase in video content costs.

Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin for the search and search-related business in the third quarter of 2016 was 49%, compared with 58% in the third quarter of 2015 and 55% in the second quarter of 2016. The decreases were mainly due to higher traffic acquisition cost as a percentage of search and search-related revenues.

Both GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin for online games in the third quarter of 2016 was 76%, compared with 77% in the third quarter of 2015 and 74% in the second quarter of 2016. The quarter-over-quarter increase was due to a smaller revenue contribution from mobile games, which typically require additional revenue-sharing payments.

Operating Expenses

For the third quarter of 2016, GAAP operating expenses totaled US$239 million, down 10% year-over-year and up 1% quarter-over-quarter. Non-GAAP operating expenses were US$226 million, down 15% year-over-year and 3% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year decrease was mainly due to US$40 million of impairments to goodwill and intangibles via acquisitions of businesses the Company recognized in the third quarter of 2015.

Operating Loss

GAAP operating loss for the third quarter of 2016 was US$52 million, compared with an operating profit of US$43 million in the third quarter of 2015 and an operating loss of US$29 million in the second quarter of 2016.

Non-GAAP operating loss for the third quarter of 2016 was US$38 million, compared with an operating profit of US$41 million in the third quarter of 2015 and an operating loss of US$26 million in the second quarter of 2016.

Other Income

Other income for the third quarter of 2016 was US$4 million, compared with other income of US$70 million which included gain recognized from the divestment of 7Road in the third quarter of 2015 and other expense of US$25 million in the second quarter of 2016, which was mainly related to a donation by Sogou to Tsinghua University.

Income Tax Expense

Both GAAP and non-GAAP income tax expense was US$1 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared with income tax expense of US$29 million in the third quarter of 2015 and income tax expense of US$2 million in the second quarter of 2016.

Net Loss

Before deducting the share of net income pertaining to non-controlling interest, GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2016 was US$42 million, compared with a net income of US$93 million in the third quarter of 2015 and net loss of US$47 million in the second quarter of 2016. Before deducting the share of net income pertaining to non-controlling interest, non-GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2016 was US$29 million, compared with a net income of US$91 million in the third quarter of 2015 and net loss of US$44 million in the second quarter of 2016.

GAAP net loss attributable to Sohu.com Inc. for the third quarter of 2016 was US$75 million, or US$1.94 loss per fully-diluted share, compared with a net income of US$39 million in the third quarter of 2015 and net loss of US$63 million in the second quarter of 2016. Non-GAAP net loss attributable to Sohu.com Inc. for the third quarter of 2016 was US$65 million, or US$1.68 loss per fully-diluted share, compared with a net income of US$49 million in the third quarter of 2015 and net loss of US$63 million in the second quarter of 2016.

Liquidity

As of September 30, 2016, the Sohu Group had cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments of US$1.36 billion compared with US$1.42 billion as of December 31, 2015.

Recent Development

Loan Agreement and Share Pledge Agreement with Changyou

On October 24, 2016, Sohu entered into a loan agreement with Changyou pursuant to which a PRC subsidiary of Sohu may borrow up to RMB1 billion (or approximately US$148.64 million) from a PRC subsidiary of Changyou from time to time, with the first advance request to occur prior to December 31, 2016 and Sohu's right to request advances continuing for one year after the first advance, subject to extension for an additional year with Changyou's consent. Principal amounts outstanding under the loan agreement will bear interest at an annual rate of 6%, accruing and payable on each one-year anniversary of each advance. The outstanding principal of each advance will be due one year from the date of the advance, subject to extension for an additional year with Changyou's consent. Advances under the loan agreement will be secured by a pledge to Changyou under a share pledge agreement of an agreed-upon number of Changyou Class B ordinary shares of Changyou held by Sohu. The share pledge agreement will give Changyou the right to apply the outstanding principal and accrued interest on the loan to the repurchase of Changyou Class B ordinary shares from Sohu in the event such principal and interest are not paid when due.  Sohu intends to use amounts drawn down under the loan agreement to finance Sohu's operations, excluding the operations of Changyou and of Sogou.

Business Outlook

For the fourth quarter of 2016, Sohu estimates:

  • Total revenues to be between US$370 million and US$400 million.
  • Brand advertising revenues to be between US$95 million and US$105 million; this implies an annual decrease of 25% to 33% and a sequential decrease of 5% to 14%. Sohu Media Portal revenues to be between US$42 million and US$45 million. Sohu Video revenues to be between US$25 million and US$28 million.
  • Sogou revenues to be between US$155 million and US$165 million; this implies annual and sequential decreases of 1% to 7%.
  • Online game revenues to be between US$85 million and US$95 million; this implies an annual decrease of 25% to 33% and a sequential decrease of 4% to14%.
  • Before deducting the share of non-GAAP net income pertaining to non-controlling interest, non-GAAP net loss to be between US$75 million and US$85 million. Assuming no new grants of share-based awards and that the market price of our shares is unchanged; we estimate that compensation expense relating to share-based awards will be around US$12 million. Considering the impact of these share-based awards, GAAP net loss before non-controlling interest to be between US$87 million and US$97 million.
  • Non-GAAP net loss attributable to Sohu.com Inc. to be between US$85 million and US$95 million, and non-GAAP loss per fully-diluted share to be between US$2.20 and US$2.45. Considering the impact of the aforementioned share-based awards, and netting off approximately US$5 million of Sohu's economic interests in Changyou and Sogou, GAAP net loss attributable to Sohu.com Inc. to be between US$92 million and US$102 million, and GAAP loss per fully-diluted share to be between US$2.38 and US$2.63.

For the fourth quarter 2016 guidance, the Company has adopted a presumed exchange rate of RMB6.7=US$1.00, as compared with the actual exchange rate of approximately RMB6.39=US$1.00 for the fourth quarter of 2015, and RMB6.66=US$1.00 for the third quarter of 2016.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

To supplement the unaudited consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), Sohu's management uses non-GAAP measures of gross profit, operating profit, net income, net income attributable to Sohu.com Inc. and diluted net income attributable to Sohu.com Inc. per share, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude the impact of the share-based awards, which consist mainly of share-based compensation expenses and non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions, and dividend and deemed dividend to non-controlling preferred shareholders. These measures 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.

Sohu's management believes excluding the share-based compensation expense, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions and dividend and deemed dividend to non-controlling preferred shareholders from its non-GAAP financial measure is useful for itself and investors. Further, the impact of share-based compensation expense, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions, and dividend and deemed dividend to non-controlling preferred shareholders cannot be anticipated by management and business line leaders and these expenses were not built into the annual budgets and quarterly forecasts, which have been the basis for information Sohu provides to analysts and investors as guidance for future operating performance. As the impact of share-based compensation expense, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions, and dividend and deemed dividend to non-controlling preferred shareholders does not involve subsequent cash outflow or is reflected in the cash flows at the equity transaction level, Sohu does not factor this impact in when evaluating and approving expenditures or when determining the allocation of its resources to its business segments. As a result, in general, the monthly financial results for internal reporting and any performance measures for commissions and bonuses are based on non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the share-based compensation expense, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions, and dividend and deemed dividend to non-controlling preferred shareholders.

The non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of Sohu's current financial performance and prospects for the future. A limitation of using non-GAAP gross profit, operating profit, net income, net income attributable to Sohu.com Inc. and diluted net income attributable to Sohu.com Inc. per share, excluding share-based compensation expense, non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions, and dividend and deemed dividend to non-controlling preferred shareholders is that the impact of share-based awards and non-cash tax benefits from excess tax deductions related to share-based awards has been and will continue to be a significant recurring expense in Sohu's business for the foreseeable future, income/expense from the adjustment of contingent consideration previously recorded for acquisitions  may recur in the future, and dividend and deemed dividend to non-controlling preferred shareholders may recur when Sohu and its affiliates enter into equity transactions. In order to mitigate these limitations Sohu has provided specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying tables include details on the reconciliation between the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to the non-GAAP financial measures that have been presented.

Notes to Financial Information

Financial information in this press release other than the information indicated as being non-GAAP is derived from Sohu's unaudited interim financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
