[1] This announcement contains translations of certain Renminbi ("RMB") amounts into U.S. dollar ("US$") amounts at specified rates solely for the convenience of readers. Unless otherwise noted, all translations from RMB amounts into US$ as of and for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, were made at a rate of RMB6.2164 to US$1.00 which is the noon buying rate on March 31,2014 in New York for cable transfers in RMB as certified in the H.10 daily statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board. The Company's functional and reporting currency is the RMB.

"Market conditions were particularly challenging in the first quarter, with transaction volumes remaining low even after Chinese New Year," said Mr. Donald Zhang, chairman and chief executive officer of Century 21 China Real Estate. "In response, we continued to focus on building out our most profitable segments, notably mortgage management and franchise services, both of which posted solid year-over-year growth. Century 21 China Real Estate remains well-positioned to take advantage of any future increase in market activity."

Mr. Harry Lu, vice chairman and president, added, "Our company-owned brokerage and primary segments were negatively impacted by the weak market in the first quarter, which led to a weaker-than-expected top-line performance. However, we have positioned our network to capture future growth while maintaining a low cost base, and we expect the cost-cutting initiatives we introduced late last year to gain further traction in the coming quarters. Combined with our sharpened focus on higher-margin business segments, this gives us confidence that we can produce solid bottom-line results through the rest of the year."

First Quarter 2014 Results

Consolidated net revenue was RMB134.9 million (US$21.7 million), a decrease of 33.6% from RMB203.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, and a decrease of 48.0% from RMB259.3 million in the first quarter of 2013. The sequential decrease was primarily due to a seasonal decline in real estate transaction volumes around the Chinese New Year. The year-over-year decrease was a result of lower revenue from company-owned brokerage services and primary and commercial services in the first quarter of 2014, due to the continuing nationwide slowdown in transaction volumes in the secondary and primary property markets, as well as abnormally high demand in the first quarter of 2013, driven by the rush-in effect ahead of the enforcement of capital gains tax regulations in Beijing and Shanghai in April 2013.

  • Revenue from company-owned brokerage services was RMB93.5 million (US$15.0 million), representing a decrease of 38.8% from RMB152.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of 56.5% from RMB215.0 million in the same period of 2013, and 69.3% of total net revenue. The sequential and year-over-year decrease was due to weak sales and purchase transaction volumes as a result of the nationwide market slowdown and exceptionally strong demand in the first quarter of 2013, as a result of market anticipation of an enforcement of capital gains tax regulations in April 2013 in Beijing and Shanghai.
  • Revenue from primary and commercial services was RMB26.2 million (US$4.2 million), representing a decrease of 30.5% from RMB37.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of 22.5% from RMB33.8 million in the same period of 2013, and 19.5% of total net revenue. The sequential decrease was primarily due to lower gross floor area of new properties sold in the first quarter of 2014 as a result of normal seasonality and primary projects delays. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to the Company's optimization of its primary and commercial services segment, as part of ongoing efforts to streamline its brokerage network.
  • Revenue from mortgage management services was RMB11.5 million (US$1.8 million), representing an increase of 18.6% from RMB9.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of 43.8% from RMB8.0 million in the same period of 2013, and 8.6% of total net revenue. The sequential and year-over-year increase was primarily due to the expansion of our mortgage credit loans business.
  • Revenue from franchise services was RMB3.5 million (US$0.6 million), representing an increase of 16.7% from RMB3.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of 40.0% from RMB2.5 million in the same period of 2013, and 2.6% of total net revenue. The sequential and year-over-year increase was primarily a result of the Company reaching more agreements with new franchisees in Beijing.

Commissions and other agent-related costs were RMB99.2 million (US$16.0 million), representing a decrease of 26.5% from RMB134.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of 36.2% from RMB155.6 million in the same period of 2013, and 73.5% of total net revenue. The sequential and year-over-year decrease was primarily due to lower commission expenses as a result of lower revenues from company-owned brokerage services, as well as a decrease in payroll sales due to a reduction in the number of sales offices and sales staff.

Operating costs were RMB39.2 million (US$6.3 million), representing a decrease of 19.7% from RMB48.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of 7.5% from RMB42.4 million in the same period of 2013, and 29.1% of total net revenue. The sequential decrease was primarily a result of lower costs related to sales office closures. The year-over-year decrease was primarily attributable to a reduction in the number of sales offices in operation in Beijing and Shenzhen.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were RMB51.4 million (US$8.3 million), representing a decrease of 29.7% from RMB73.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of 4.8% from RMB54.0 million in the same period of 2013, and 38.1% of total net revenue. The sequential decrease was primarily due to a decrease in marketing expenses, professional fee accruals, and salary and benefits for non-sales staff as a result of normal seasonality and a reduction in back-office staff. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to decreases in professional fees and in provisions for bad debt related to the Company's primary and commercial services segment.

Loss from operations was RMB54.9 million (US$8.8 million), compared to loss from operations of RMB53.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, and income from operations of RMB7.2 million in the same period of 2013. Non-GAAP[2] loss from operations was RMB54.9 million (US$8.8 million), compared to non-GAAP loss from operations of RMB53.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, and non-GAAP income from operations of RMB7.3 million in the same period of 2013.

Net loss attributable to IFM Investments Limited was RMB47.5 million (US$7.6 million), compared to a net loss attributable to IFM Investments Limited of RMB37.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, and net income attributable to IFM Investments Limited of RMB5.4 million in the same period of 2013. Non-GAAP net loss attributable to IFM Investments Limited was RMB47.4 million (US$7.6 million), compared to a non-GAAP net loss attributable to IFM Investments Limited of RMB37.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, and non-GAAP net income attributable to IFM Investments Limited of RMB5.5 million in the same period of 2013.

Basic and diluted net loss per American depositary share ("ADS") were RMB3.19 (US$0.51) and RMB3.19 (US$0.51), respectively. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss per ADS were RMB3.19 (US$0.51) and RMB3.19 (US$0.51), respectively. Each of the Company's ADSs represents 45 Class A ordinary shares.

[2] Explanation of the Company's non-GAAP financial measures and related reconciliations to GAAP financial measures is included in the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Reconciliations to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations" in the accompanying condensed financial information included in this press release.

Cash Flow

As of March 31, 2014, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of RMB100.1 million (US$16.1 million). Net cash used in operating activities in the first quarter 2014 was RMB48.2 million (US$7.8 million), compared to net cash provided by operating activities of RMB6.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, and net cash provided by operating activities of RMB9.1 million in the same period of 2013, mainly due to the greater operating loss incurred in the first quarter of 2014. Net cash provided by investing activities was RMB13.5 million (US$2.2 million). This was primarily the result of the net effect of providing and receiving repayments on mortgage credit loans of RMB16.5 million (US$2.7 million), as well as the purchase of property, plant and equipment of RMB2.9 million (US$0.5 million).

Network Update

During the first quarter of 2014, the Company's CENTURY 21® China Real Estate network covered 24 major cities with an average of more than 905 sales offices, including an average of 225 company-owned sales offices in operation. As of March 31, 2014, the Company's CENTURY 21® China Real Estate network employed more than 12,100 sales professionals and maintained approximately 7.9 million property listings.

Among other things, the Business Outlook section and quotations from management in this press release, as well as the Company's strategic and operational plans, contain forward-looking statements. The Company may also make written or oral forward-looking statements in its reports filed or furnished with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, in press releases and other written materials and in oral statements made by its officers, directors or employees to third parties. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about the Company's beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements and are subject to change, and such change may be material and may have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial condition and results of operations for one or more periods.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, this press release includes non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted income (loss) from operations, adjusted net income (loss) attributable to IFM Investments Limited and adjusted earnings per ADS, each of which is adjusted to exclude share-based compensation, impairment of goodwill and net change in fair value. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are important to help investors understand the Company's current financial performance and future prospects, compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis and assess the Company's core operating results. For a reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, please see the accompanying condensed financial information included with this press release. One limitation of using non-GAAP financial measures as described above is that these expense charges have been and will continue to be significant recurring expenses in the Company's business for the foreseeable future. Readers are cautioned not to view non-GAAP results on a stand-alone basis or as a substitute for results under GAAP, or as being comparable to results reported or forecasted by other companies. Management compensates for this limitation by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amount excluded from the non-GAAP measure.
