"We had another strong quarter in Q2 with search exhibiting robust revenue growth driven by AI-powered monetization capabilities and Baidu feed continuing strong traffic and monetization momentum," said Robin Li, Chairman and CEO of Baidu. "On DuerOS, we are excited about the newly launched Xiaodu series speakers and the adoption of DuerOS, which handled over 400 million queries in June 2018, almost doubling the workload again over a three-month span. On Apollo, we worked with King Long Motor and Neolix Technology to launch two fully autonomous L4 vehicles. These strong results are testament of our ability to focus and execute on our strategy to solidify Baidu's mobile foundation and lead in AI."

"Baidu delivered a solid second quarter with revenues growing 32%[2] year over year to RMB 26.0 billion and non-GAAP operating profit growing 31% to RMB 6.5 billion," said Herman Yu, CFO of Baidu. "We continue to increase our investments in AI-powered businesses with strong synergies and divest from non-core businesses. This has resulted in an acceleration of our revenue growth and allowed us to redeploy capital raised from non-core business divestures to create long-term shareholder value and increase return on capital."

Revenue per online marketing customer was approximately RMB 41,200 ($6,200), a 16% increase year over year.

Content costs were RMB 5.2 billion ($788 million), representing a 68% increase year over year. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to iQIYI's increased content costs and, to a lesser extent, increased investment in BJH, Baidu feeds' content network.

Bandwidth costs were RMB 1.6 billion ($234 million), representing a 12% increase year over year.

Net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests was RMB 1.3 billion ($201 million), which included the loss related to the conversion of noncontrolling preferred shares to ordinary shares upon iQIYI's IPO and the loss on investment arising from a change in fair market value per ASC 321.

Assets of RMB 38.1 billion ($5.76 billion) and liabilities of RMB 27.3 billion ($4.13 billion) associated with Du Xiaoman were reclassified to assets and liabilities held for sale on the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2018. The transactions contemplated under the definitive agreements are subject to certain closing conditions and are currently expected to close in the second half of 2018.

Financial Guidance

For the third quarter of 2018, Baidu expects revenues to be between RMB 27.37 billion ($4.02 billion[7]) and RMB 28.77 billion ($4.23 billion), representing a 23% to 30% increase year over year. Excluding the impact from announced divestures, including Global DU and Du Xiaoman, Baidu expects revenues to be between RMB 26.56 billion ($3.91 billion) and RMB 27.92 billion ($4.11 billion), representing a 26% to 33% increase year over year. This forecast reflects Baidu's current and preliminary view, which is subject to substantial uncertainty.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Baidu's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, Baidu uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP operating income/loss, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income attributable to Baidu, non-GAAP diluted earnings per ADS, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Baidu believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of its recurring core business operating results, such as operating performance excluding not only non-cash charges, but also other items that are infrequent or unusual in nature. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing its performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to Baidu's historical performance and liquidity. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision making. A limitation of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that these non-GAAP measures exclude certain items that have been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant component in the Company's results of operations.  These non-GAAP financial measures presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures to the Company's data.

Non-GAAP operating income represents operating income excluding share-based compensation expenses.

Non-GAAP net income attributable to Baidu represents net income attributable to Baidu excluding share-based compensation expenses, the gain or loss associated with the issuance of shares by Baidu's equity method investees at a price higher or lower than the carrying value per share, disposal gain or loss, impairment of long-term investments, fair value change of long-term investments, as adjusted for related income tax effects. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per ADS represents diluted earnings per ADS calculated based on non-GAAP net income attributable to Baidu. Adjusted EBITDA represents operating income excluding depreciation, amortization (excluding the amortization of licensed copyrights and produced content of iQIYI) and share-based compensation expenses.

For more information on non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measures."


[1] This announcement contains translations of certain RMB amounts into U.S. dollars at specified rates solely for the convenience of the reader. Unless otherwise noted, all translations from RMB to U.S. dollars are made at a rate of RMB6.6171 to US$1.00, the effective noon buying rate as of June 29, 2018, in The City of New York for cable transfers of RMB as certified for customs purposes by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

[2] Starting from January 1, 2018, Baidu adopted a new revenue accounting standard (ASC 606), which reclassifies value added tax from the cost of revenues to net against revenues. To increase comparability of operating results and help investors better understand our business performance and operating trends, 2017 net revenues have been used to calculate all percentage changes in revenues, percentage changes in revenues per online marketing customer, operating margin, non-GAAP operating margin, and adjusted EBITDA margin. 2017 net revenues are defined as gross revenues under legacy GAAP after the deduction of value added taxes, which is presented on the same basis as 2018 and going forward.

[3] Non-GAAP net income attributable to Baidu represents net income attributable to Baidu excluding share-based compensation expenses, the gain or loss associated with the issuance of the shares by our equity method investees at a price higher or lower than our carrying value per share, disposal gain or loss, impairment of long-term investments and fair value change of long-term investments, as adjusted for the tax effects on non-GAAP adjustments.

[4] Non-GAAP diluted earnings per ADS represents diluted earnings per ADS calculated based on non-GAAP net income attributable to Baidu.     

[5] The number of active online marketing customers and revenue per online active customer exclude our group-buying and delivery related businesses for consistency with previous reporting.

[6] Since the beginning of 2017, we have disposed of or planned to disclose certain non-core businesses including Baidu Mobile Games, Baidu Deliveries, Global DU businesses, and Du Xiaoman (our financial services business). Those businesses generated approximately RMB 1.0 billion revenues and 0.1 billion operating profit, excluding share-based compensation expenses, for the second quarter of 2018. We expect these divestures together will generate approximately US$1.8 billion in cash.

[7] The translations from RMB to U.S. dollars for the expected revenues in the third quarter of 2018 are made at a rate of RMB6.80 to US$1.0, the rounded noon buying rate as of July 20, 2018, in The City of New York for cable transfers of RMB as certified for customs purposes by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

(1) Starting on January 1, 2018, valued added tax has been reclassified from cost of revenues to net against revenues.

To increase comparability of operating results and help investors better understand our business performance and trends, 2017 net revenues have been used to calculate operating margin, non-GAAP operating margin, and adjusted EBITDA margin.

2017 net revenues are defined as gross revenues under legacy GAAP after the deduction of value added-taxes, which is presented on the same basis as 2018 and going forward.
