Dr. Jianyu Yang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Concord Medical, commented, "Changes in the policies regarding the hospital partners have further led to the closure of a number of our centers, which put pressure on our operating income in the first half of 2017 and presented us with challenges. However, our new business model, focused on self-built high-end cancer hospital, is steadily developing and growing, which helps mitigate the impact of these adverse factors. We believe that the new business model will bring us new growth points and more opportunities in the future."

"The Singapore Concord International Hospital has grown rapidly since 2017, the number of patients received is increasing monthly, so that the hospital's income has also been improved. At the same time, in order to continue growing Singapore Concord International Hospital, we are stepping up to improve its operating and radiotherapy areas both in hardware and software facilities. We look forward to serving more cancer patients with high-quality and efficient services in the future."

"Starting from 2016, Meizhong Jiahe has been responsible for the daily operations of Shanghai ProMed Cancer Center ("ProMed"), and we are in the process of acquiring ProMed. Since the first half of 2017, ProMed's medical service has become increasingly mature and well-known. In the future, we plan to align ProMed with the MD Anderson Cancer Center at the technical level to gradually improve the functions of ProMed as a first-class high-end cancer clinic and to provide more international medical services to patients in the region."

2017 First Half Financial Results

Network Business

Net revenues from the network business were RMB196.4 million ($29.0 million), a 20.4% decrease from net revenues of RMB246.7 million in the first half of 2016, primarily attributable to the closure of certain centers in our network of centers. With 18 centers closed in the first half of 2017, the Company operated a network of 60 centers in 34 cities in China as of June 30, 2017.

Cost of revenue of the network business was RMB109.5 million ($16.2 million), representing a 20.6% decrease from RMB137.9 million in the first half of 2016.

Gross profit from the network business was RMB86.8 million ($12.8 million), representing a 20.2% decrease from RMB108.8 million in the first half of 2016. The gross profit margin for the first half of 2017 was 44.2%, compared to 44.1% for the same period last year.

Selling expenses of the network business were RMB30.3 million ($4.5 million), representing a 26.3% decrease from RMB41.1 million in the first half of 2016. Selling expenses as a percentage of net revenues was 15.4% in the first half of 2017, compared to 16.7% in the first half of 2016. The decrease in selling expenses of the network business was mainly due to reduced marketing, conference, office and travel expenses.

General and administrative expenses as a percentage of net revenues were 47.9% in the first half of 2017, compared to 21.4% in the same period last year. The increases were mainly due to management fees and consulting fees to Zhongrong Guofu Investment Management Company Limited.

Comparing to RMB30.9 million in the same period last year, capital expenditures decreased to RMB11.1 million ($1.6 million) in the first half of 2017.

Accounts receivable were RMB205.6 million ($30.3 million) as of June 30, 2017, compared to RMB188.7 million as of December 31, 2016. The average period of sales outstanding for accounts receivable (also known as Days Sales Outstanding) was 182 days in the first half of 2017.

During the first half of 2017, the Company handled 8,617 patient treatment cases and 115,188 patient diagnostic cases, representing a 19.5% decrease and a 18.5% decrease from the same period last year, respectively, mainly due to the closure of certain centers during the past year and first half of 2017.

Safe Harbor Statement

This announcement contains forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements can be identified by words or phrases such as "will," "expects," "anticipates," "future," "intends," "plans," "believes," "estimates" and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements are inherently subject to uncertainties and contingencies beyond the Company's control and based upon premises with respect to future business decisions, which are subject to change. A number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. The Company does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement, except as required under applicable law.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), Concord Medical uses certain non-GAAP measures. The Company presents certain of its financial information that is adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude the impact of share-based compensation expense. The Company believes excluding share-based compensation expense from its GAAP financial measures is useful for its management and investors to assess and analyze the Company's core operating results, as such expense is not directly attributable to the underlying performance of the Company's business operations and do not impact its current cash earnings. Concord Medical also believes these non-GAAP measures excluding share-based compensation expense are important in helping investors to understand the Company's current financial performance and future prospects and to compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis. In addition, Concord Medical also presents the non-GAAP measure of Adjusted EBITDA, which is defined in this announcement as net income plus interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and share-based compensation expenses and other adjustments. Other adjustments include foreign exchange gain, gain from disposal of property, plant and equipment, changes in fair value of derivatives and other income. Furthermore, Adjusted EBITDA eliminates the impact of items that the Company does not consider to be indicative of the performance of the network business and hospital business. The Company believes investors will similarly use Adjusted EBITDA as one of the key metrics to evaluate its financial performance and to compare its current operating results with corresponding historical periods and with other companies in the healthcare services industry. The presentation of these additional measures should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results or as being comparable to results reported or forecasted by other companies. The non-GAAP measures have been reconciled to GAAP measures in the attached financial information.
