Second Quarter 2009 Financial Results(1)

Net Revenues. In the second quarter of 2009, Shanda reported net revenues of RMB1,237.2 million (US$181.1 million), representing an increase of 47.7% from RMB837.6 million year-over-year and 11.8% from RMB1,107.1 million in the first quarter of 2009.

Online game related revenues, including MMORPGs and casual games(2), were RMB1,177.6 million (US$172.4 million) in the second quarter of 2009, representing an increase of 46.7% from RMB802.6 million year-over-year and 10.9% from RMB1,062.4 million in the first quarter of 2009.

MMORPGs related revenues in the second quarter of 2009 increased 54.6% year-over-year and 13.8% quarter-over-quarter to RMB1,074.7 million (US$157.3million), accounting for 86.9% of net revenues. The sequential growth in MMORPG related revenues was primarily driven by newly launched games as well as the continued release of expansion packs for our existing games in the second quarter of 2009.

The number of APA for MMORPGs increased 19.4% sequentially to 8.58 million in the second quarter of 2009, mainly due to the Company's continuous efforts to convert free players to paying users and the launch of new games. As a result, ARPU for MMORPGs was RMB41.7 in the second quarter of 2009, compared with RMB43.8 in the first quarter of 2009.

Casual games(2) related revenues in the second quarter of 2009 decreased 4.3% year-over-year and 12.7% quarter-over-quarter to RMB102.9 million (US$15.1million). The sequential decrease in casual games(2) related revenues was primarily due to seasonality in casual games for which the first quarter of each year is usually a high season with the winter holidays and Chinese New Year.

The number of APA for casual games(2) decreased 9.6% sequentially to 1.86 million in the second quarter of 2009. As a result, ARPU for casual games(2) declined 3.4% sequentially to RMB18.4 in the second quarter of 2009.

Other revenues in the second quarter of 2009 increased 70.6% year-over-year and 33.6% quarter-over-quarter to RMB59.6 million (US$8.7 million).

Gross Profit. Gross profit for the second quarter of 2009 was RMB899.0 million (US$131.6 million), representing a 47.4% increase from RMB610.1 million in the second quarter of 2008 and a 12.3% increase from RMB801.0 million in the first quarter of 2009. Gross margin was 72.7% in the second quarter of 2009, compared with 72.8% in the second quarter of 2008 and 72.3% in the first quarter of 2009.

Income from Operations. Operating income for the second quarter of 2009 was RMB513.4 million (US$75.2 million), representing a 53.0% increase from RMB335.6 million in the second quarter of 2008 and a 12.7% increase from RMB455.7 million in the first quarter of 2009. Operating margin was 41.5% in the second quarter of 2009, compared with 40.1% in the second quarter of 2008 and 41.2% in the first quarter of 2009.

Share-based compensation was RMB18.1 million (US$2.7 million) in the second quarter of 2009, compared with RMB15.1 million in the second quarter of 2008 and RMB13.7 million in the first quarter of 2009.

Non-Operating Income. Net non-operating income for the second quarter of 2009 was RMB23.8 million (US$3.5 million), compared with RMB5.8 million in the second quarter of 2008 and RMB0.6 million in the first quarter of 2009. The quarter-over-quarter difference was primarily due to the difference in government financial incentives between the second quarter compared with the first quarter of 2009. Non-operating income contributed from government financial incentives amounted to RMB36.5 million (US$5.3 million) in the second quarter of 2009, compared with RMB5.4 million in the second quarter of 2008 and RMB1.6 million in the first quarter of 2009.

Income Tax Expense. Income tax expense for the second quarter of 2009 was RMB 110.3 million (US$16.2 million), as compared with income tax expenses of RMB61.5 million in the second quarter of 2008 and RMB95.3 million in the first quarter of 2009.

The Company's subsidiaries and VIEs are at various stages of progress depending on the requirements of the different local tax authorities in recognition of qualification of the NEW/HIGH Technology Enterprises preferred tax treatment pursuant to "Working Guidelines for Assessment of NEW/HIGH Technology Enterprises" issued by the Chinese tax authorities on July 8, 2008. In December 2008, government recognition of certain entities as NEW/HIGH Technology Enterprise was acknowledged by the local tax authority and these entities are entitled to a preferential tax rate of 15%, which is effective retroactively to January 1, 2008.

As a result, the Directors of the Company believe it is appropriate to report the Company's income tax provision at the new statutory income tax rate of 25%, except for entities that are still subject to tax holidays or other preferential income tax policies. The future tax benefits arising from the deductible temporary differences as of June 30, 2009 are recognized in the balance sheet to the extent it is considered recoverable upon management's periodic assessment.

Net Income Attributable to Ordinary Shareholders. Net income for the second quarter of 2009 was RMB426.9 million (US$62.5million), compared with RMB279.8 million in the second quarter of 2008 and RMB361.0 million in the first quarter of 2009.

Net margin was 34.5% in the second quarter of 2009, compared with 33.4% in the second quarter of 2008 and 32.6% in the first quarter of 2009. Earnings per diluted ADS in the second quarter of 2009 were RMB6.14 (US$0.90), compared with RMB3.80 in the second quarter of 2008 and RMB5.28 in the first quarter of 2009.

Non-GAAP(3) Operating Income. Non-GAAP operating income for the second quarter of 2009 was RMB531.5 million (US$77.9 million), an increase of 51.6% from RMB350.7 million in the second quarter of 2008 and an increase of 13.2% from RMB469.4 million in the first quarter of 2009. Non-GAAP operating margin was 43.0% in the second quarter of 2009, compared with 41.9% in the second quarter of 2008 and 42.4% in the first quarter of 2009.
