China Digital TV’s net revenues decreased by 22.9% to US$1.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018 from US$1.9 million for the same period of the prior year. The decrease in net revenues was primarily attributable to the decreased product revenues during the first half of 2018.

Cost of revenues decreased by 56.9% to US$0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018 from US$0.9 million for the same period of the prior year. The decrease in cost of revenues was primarily due to the decreased product revenues in the first half of 2018.

Gross margin, which is equal to gross profit divided by net revenues, was 75.1% in the first half of 2018, compared to 55.5% for the same period of the prior year.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

Non-GAAP net income attributable to China Digital TV Holding Co., Ltd. shareholders excludes share-based compensation expenses, and amortization of intangible assets acquired from business acquisitions. The Company believes that the Non-GAAP net income provides meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company’s performance by excluding certain non-cash expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash flow perspective. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to this additional information in assessing the Company’s performance and when planning and forecasting future periods.

However, the use of non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not include all items that impact the Company’s net (loss)/income for the period. In addition, because non-GAAP financial measures are not measured in the same manner by all companies, they may not be comparable to other similar titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider non-GAAP financial measure in isolation from or as an alternative to the financial measure prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
