We are starting the year on a strong footing, having spent the past few quarters repositioning ourselves to drive growth in this challenging market environment.

During the year, overseas AUM grew 10.7%; overseas net revenue grew 73.0%; and overseas registered clients and active clients grew 14.2% and 38.0%, respectively. Our balance sheet is robust, clean and is generating sufficient capital to support Noah’s overseas expansion.”

Zhe’s alignment with our values and culture, coupled with his instrumental role in building our Gopher Asset Management franchise, made him the ideal candidate. We have been working seamlessly together since he took on this new role and I have the upmost confidence in his ability to execute our growth initiatives going forward.”

DISCUSSION ON NON-GAAP MEASURES

In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company’s earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures excluding the effects of all forms of share-based compensation and net of tax impact, if any. See “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results” at the end of this press release.

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 measures 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 the foregoing non-GAAP net income attributable to Noah shareholders and per diluted ADS and non-GAAP net margin attributable to Noah shareholders to supplement U.S. GAAP financial data. As such, the Company’s management believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures provides important supplemental information to investors regarding financial and business trends relating to its results of operations in a manner consistent with that used by management.
