Over the past year of being a publicly traded company, we have successfully, consistently and now, profitably executed upon an e-commerce model that is significantly differentiated from other industry players. As compared to conventional on-line marketplaces or large-scale multi-category online retailers, we have successfully created and proven there is a third e-commerce model that can provide tremendous scale and profitability.  By providing special offers and deep discounts on branded products, we have pioneered the online discount retail model in China and become the expert and leader trusted by our customers and brand partners alike.  The success of our model is evidenced by the fact that we more than tripled our revenues in 2012 and significantly expanded our customer base, brand partnerships, sales volume and fulfillment capabilities. As we continue to grow, we will remain focused on improving our special offers and shopping experience for customers, expanding our logistics platform that is unique to our business model, cementing brand partnerships, and strengthening our specialized merchandising expertise.  These advantages will further increase the significant barriers to entry and expand our leadership in China's booming online retail market."  Mr. Donghao Yang, CFO of Vipshop, commented, "We are pleased with our exceptional growth in both top line and bottom line, which exceeded consensus estimates. Our continued efforts in optimizing and expanding our product offerings allowed us to further leverage the scale effects inherent in our business in attracting online shoppers and brands. Looking forward, we see expanding market opportunities ahead of us driven by China's growing population of online shoppers eager to buy branded products at bargain prices. Through our increased scale and improved operational efficiency, we remain confident in our capabilities to keep up with this surging demand, while delivering sustainable growth over the years to come."Fourth Quarter 2012 Financial ResultsNET REVENUES Net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased by 184.8% to US$299.6 million from US$105.2 million in the prior year period, primarily driven by growth in the number of active customers and total orders.The number of active customers for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased by 176.9% to 2.6 million from approximately 934,000 in the prior year period. The number of total orders for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased by 191.2% to 8.8 million from 3.0 million in the prior year period.  This increase was primarily due to the Company's continued efforts to optimize brand and product selection, increase the number of sales events and increase the number of SKUs available on its website. In addition, the Company's regional warehouse expansion into Shanghai, Chengdu and Beijing has enhanced its ability to accommodate increased demand from end customers.GROSS PROFITGross profit for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased by 227.4% to US$68.7 million from US$21.0 million in the prior year period. This reflects both the significant increase in net revenues as well as continued margin expansion. Gross margin increased to 22.9% in the fourth quarter of 2012 from 20.0% in the prior year period and 22.3% in the third quarter of 2012. This increase is attributable to the Company's increased bargaining power with its suppliers due to increased purchasing scale.OPERATING INCOME AND EXPENSESTotal operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 decreased by 24.4% to US$64.1 million from US$84.8 million in the prior year period, primarily due to decreased share-based compensation charges, offset by an increase in fulfillment, marketing, technology and content and general and administrative expenses in line with the increased net revenues. As a percentage of net revenues, total operating expenses decreased to 21.4% from 80.6% in the prior year period and 24.7% in the third quarter of 2012. Fulfillment expenses increased by 90.9% to US$37.4 million from US$19.6 million in the prior year period, primarily reflecting the increase in sales volume and number of orders fulfilled. As a percentage of net revenues, fulfillment expenses decreased to 12.5% from 18.6% in the prior year period and 13.9% in the third quarter of 2012, which reflects the Company's strategy of shifting towards using regional and local delivery services and capacity expansion of regional warehouses. The sequential improvement in fulfillment expenses as a percentage of net revenues also reflected the seasonality associated with increased average revenue per order due to higher priced winter season products.  Marketing expenses increased by 85.9% to US$12.5 million from US$6.7 million in the prior year period. As a percentage of net revenues, marketing expenses decreased to 4.2% from 6.4% in the prior year period and 4.7% in the third quarter of 2012, demonstrating the Company's ability to control marketing expenses by retaining repeat customers and achieving high growth of new customers through word-of-mouth referrals.

General and administrative expenses decreased by 85.8% to US$7.9 million from US$55.5 million in the prior year period, primarily due to decreased share-based compensation expenses. As a percentage of net revenues, general and administrative expenses decreased to 2.6% compared with 52.8% in the prior year period and 4.1% in the third quarter of 2012, reflecting the effect of the decrease in share-based compensation expenses, the Company's increased operational leverage as well as continued cost-control efforts.

Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties. A number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement, including but not limited to the following: Vipshop's goals and strategies; Vipshop's future business development, results of operations and financial condition; the expected growth of the online discount retail market in China; Vipshop's ability to attract customers and brand partners and further enhance its brand recognition; Vipshop's expectations regarding demand for and market acceptance of flash sales products and services; competition in the discount retail industry; fluctuations in general economic and business conditions in China and assumptions underlying or related to any of the foregoing. Further information regarding these and other risks is included in Vipshop's filings with the SEC. All information provided in this press release and in the attachments is as of the date of this press release, and Vipshop does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement, except as required under applicable law.Use of Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresThe unaudited condensed consolidated financial information is prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"), except that the consolidated statement of shareholders' equity, consolidated statements of cash flows, and the detailed notes required by Accounting Standards Codification 270 Interim Reporting ("ASC270"), have not been presented. Vipshop uses non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders, non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders per diluted ADS, non-GAAP income/(loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income (loss) margin, and non-GAAP operating income/ (loss) margin, each of which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders is net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP income/(loss) from operations is income/(loss) from operations excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP operating income/ (loss) margin is non-GAAP income/(loss) from operations as a percentage of net revenues.  Non-GAAP net income/ (loss) margin is non-GAAP net income /(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders as a percentage of net revenues. The Company believes that separate analysis and exclusion of the non-cash impact of share-based compensation adds clarity to the constituent parts of its performance. The Company reviews these non-GAAP financial measures together with GAAP financial measures to obtain a better understanding of its operating performance. It uses these non-GAAP financial measures for planning, forecasting and measuring results against the forecast. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures are useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance without the effect of non-cash share-based compensation expenses, which have been and will continue to be significant recurring expenses in its business. 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 income/(loss) 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.The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Vipshop Holdings Limited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" at the end of this release.[1] Active customers are defined as any registered member who has purchased products from the Company at least once during the period. [2] Total orders are defined as the total number of orders placed during the period.[3] Non-GAAP income/(loss) from operations is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as income/(loss) from operations excluding share-based compensation expenses.  [4] Non-GAAP operating income/(loss) margin is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as non-GAAP income/(loss) from operations as a percentage of net revenues.[5] Non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses.  [6] Non-GAAP net income/(loss) margin is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as non-GAAP net income /(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders as a percentage of net revenues.[7]"ADS" is American Depositary Share.
