In the second quarter of 2011, the Company started to generate advertising revenues primarily from performance advertising services using a system called Application Advertisement ("AA"). The performance advertising revenue was realized through an affiliated advertising agent which is under common control of Shanda Interactive Entertainment Limited, the Company's majority shareholder. The Company generated 94.6% of total revenues in the third quarter of 2012 through this affiliated advertising agent, as compared to 94.8% of total revenues in the second quarter of 2012.Cost of revenues was US$3.66 million (RMB23.02 million) in the third quarter of 2012, remained flat compared to the second quarter of 2012, decreased 33.2% from US$5.48 million in the third quarter of 2011.

Non-GAAP gross loss, which is herein defined as a gross loss excluding share-based compensation expenses, was US$0.58 million (RMB3.63 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to a non-GAAP gross loss of US$0.66 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$1.22 million in the third quarter of 2011. Operating expenses were US$2.85 million (RMB17.91 million) in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 73.3% from US$1.64 million in the second quarter of 2012 and a decrease of 74.7% from US$11.28 million in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP operating expenses, which is herein defined as operating expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, were US$2.88 million (RMB18.11 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to non-GAAP operating expenses of US$1.67 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$10.85 million in the third quarter of 2011. The sequential increase was mainly attributable to (1) a net increase of US$0.61 million (RMB 3.82 million) in litigation expenses due to the second quarter reversal of accrued liabilities related to favorable settlements of copyright infringement and (2) a US$0.47 million (RMB2.95 million) change in bad debt expense due to the decreased collection of accounts receivable previously written down. Operating loss was US$3.46 million (RMB21.71 million) in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 51.9% from US$2.28 million in the second quarter of 2012 and a decrease of 72.4% from US$12.53 million in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP operating loss, which reflects the exclusion of share-based compensation expenses, was US$3.46 million (RMB21.75 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to the non-GAAP operating loss of US$2.34 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$12.07 million in the third quarter of 2011. Net loss was US$3.25 million (RMB20.43 million) in the third quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 120.9% from US$1.47 million in the second quarter of 2012 and a decrease of 75.0% from US$12.98 million in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP net loss, which reflects the exclusion of share-based compensation expenses, was US$3.26 million (RMB20.46 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to US$1.53 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$12.52 million in the third quarter of 2011. The sequential increase in net loss was primarily attributable to (1) a US$0.73 million (RMB4.59 million) decrease in government subsidy benefits in the third quarter of 2012; (2) the US$0.61 million (RMB3.82 million) net increase in litigation expenses due to the second quarter reversal of accrued liabilities related to favorable settlements of copyright infringement and (3) the US$0.47 million (RMB2.95 million) of changes in bad debt expense.  Net loss attributable to Ku6 Media was US$3.25 million (RMB20.43 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to US$1.47 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$12.98 million in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP net loss attributable to Ku6 Media, reflecting the exclusion of share based compensation expenses, was US$3.26 million (RMB20.46 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to the non-GAAP net loss attributable to Ku6 Media of US$1.53 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$12.52 million in the third quarter of 2011. Net loss attributable to Ku6 Media per basic and diluted ADS was US$0.07 (RMB0.44) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to US$0.03 in the second quarter of 2012 and US$0.26 in the third quarter of 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA loss, which is herein defined as net loss attributable to Ku6 Media before interest income, interest expenses, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization and write-down of licensed video copyrights), further adjusted for share-based compensation expenses, equity in loss of affiliates and other non-operating items, was US$2.58 million (RMB16.23 million) in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to adjusted EBITDA loss of US$1.48 million in the second quarter of 2012 and US$10.58 million in the third quarter of 2011. The increase was primarily due to the increase in operating expenses.As of September 30, 2012, the Company had US$12.55 million (RMB78.84 million) in cash and cash equivalents, compared to US$23.28 million as of June 30, 2012. The decrease was primarily due to the cash payment for share repurchase in the amount of US$8.08 million (RMB50.80 million) in the third quarter of 2012. Recent Business Developments The Company's Repurchase and Immediate Retirement of Ordinary Shares and ADSsOn July 12 2012, the Company's shareholders approved, at the Annual General Meeting, a repurchase (and retirement thereafter) of certain of the Company's outstanding shares. This repurchase was settled with cash on July 30, 2012. In this transaction, the Company repurchased and immediately retired in the aggregate 269,409,276 ordinary shares formerly held by Mr. Shanyou Li (the original founder and former CEO), Mr. Zhizhong Hao (Former Senior VP), Ms. Xingye Zeng (Former VP of Sales) and Kumella Holdings Limited (an investment entity controlled by Mr. Shanyou Li), at a price of US$ 0.0291 per share, representing a premium to the Company's current per share price (in total, such repurchase amounting to approximately US$7.84 million). The Company also repurchased and immediately retired 79,717 ADSs (each ADS representing 100 ordinary shares) held by Mr. Shanyou Li at a price of US$2.91 per ADS (in total, approximately US$0.23 million), which represented a premium to the then-current share price. Given the volatile nature of the Company's per-ADS price as an appropriate measure of fair value and the susceptibility of the per-share price to significant changes on small trading volumes, the Company engaged with an independent financial advisor to assist its management in determining the appropriate range indicative of the fair value per ADS. The repurchase price paid fell within an appropriate indicative range of fair value. The Company recorded this transaction via a charge to additional paid in capital for the repurchase amount.Cooperation with NetEaseIn September 2012, the Company entered into an agreement with NetEase, Inc. ("NetEase," NASDAQ: NTES), a well-known internet company in China. Pursuant to the agreement, Ku6 Media will provide technology support for the video related activities on NetEase's microblog platform, including video uploading and video sharing. Meanwhile, NetEase's microblog users will be given access to Ku6 Media video contents via embedded Ku6 Media video players.Share Repurchase Program of 2011Pursuant to a share repurchase program announced December 30, 2011, the Company's Board of Directors have authorized the Company to repurchase up to an aggregate of US$3.2 million of its outstanding ADSs from time to time following the date thereof, based on market conditions. As of September 30, 2012, the Company has repurchased 11,100 ADSs from open market under this program.Conference Call Information Ku6's management team will be hosting a corresponding conference call at 8:00am EST on Friday, December 7, 2012 (9:00pm Beijing time on the same day).Dial-in numbers:      International Dial-in Number:+65 67239381United States Toll Free Number:18665194004Mainland China Toll Free Number:4006208038 / 8008190121Hong Kong Toll Free Number:800930346Conference ID:74736454A replay will be available from 1:00am December 8, 2012 EST for 7 days.International Dial-in Number:+61 2 8199 0299United States Toll Free Number:18554525696Mainland China Toll Free Number:4001200932Hong Kong Toll Free Number:800963117Conference ID:74736454A live and archived webcast of the conference call will also be available at http://www.media-server.com/m/p/z2v9kooi About Ku6 Media Co., Ltd.Ku6 Media Co., Ltd.
