Business Outlook

Based on current market and operating conditions, the Company's net revenues target for the fourth quarter of 2019 is in the estimated range of RMB1,080 million to RMB1,120 million (US$151.1 million to US$156.7 million). Guidance for earnings per share is provided on a non-GAAP basis due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting the future impact of certain items, such as gain/loss from foreign currency translation. The Company is not able to provide a reconciliation of these non-GAAP items to expected reported GAAP earnings per share, without unreasonable efforts, due to the unknown effect and potential significance of such future impact. Excluding share-based compensation expense and any gain or loss from foreign currency translation, as well as the related tax effect of these items, the Company's non-GAAP fully diluted earnings target for the fourth quarter of 2019 is in the estimated range of RMB4.45 to RMB4.75 (US$0.62 to US$0.66) per share.  The Company expects total share-based compensation expense in the fourth quarter of 2019 to be in the estimated range of RMB34 million to RMB35 million (US$4.8 million to US$4.9 million).
