Management Comments

"We began the year with solid operational and financial results," commented Mr. Michael Yao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of 58.com. "Our revenues grew 22.5% during the quarter, exceeding the high end of our previously announced guidance. On a non-GAAP basis, operating income and net income grew 13.0% and 42.6% year over year, respectively, as user traffic to our apps in particular and user engagement continued to gain growth momentum."

"We are not immune to China's softening economy given our exposure to several key local services categories such as jobs, housing and auto. The market opportunity in China however remains massive and heavily underpenetrated given the nation's large population and the enormous growth potential we continue to unlock in our platform by improving the user experience and applying innovative technology. Our core housing and jobs businesses lead the market, while newer businesses like Zhuan Zhuan and 58 Town are growing rapidly. We are confident in our online classifieds marketplace business model and will continue to invest in innovation and marketing to further strengthen our leadership position."

First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Revenues

Total revenues were RMB3,028.3 million (US$449.7 million), representing an increase of 22.5% from RMB2,471.2 million in the same quarter of 2018.

Membership revenues were RMB982.0 million (US$145.8 million), an increase of 5.7% from RMB928.9 million in the same quarter of 2018.

Online marketing services revenues were RMB1,940.9 million (US$288.2 million), an increase of 30.1% from RMB1,492.0 million in the same quarter of 2018.

The increase was primarily driven by the increasing adoption and effectiveness of the Company's various online marketing services such as real-time bidding, priority listing and various other online marketing services.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues was RMB296.9 million (US$44.1 million), an increase of 15.1% from RMB257.9 million in the same quarter of 2018. The year-over-year increase was primarily driven by increases in the cost of services provided on Anjuke and ChinaHR platforms, traffic acquisition costs paid to 58.com's advertising union partners as well as salaries and benefits primarily for information quality control teams.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit was RMB2,731.4 million (US$405.6 million), an increase of 29.0% from RMB2,213.2 million during the same quarter of 2018.

The increase was primarily due to an increase in mobile traffic acquisition expenses, particularly for mobile applications such as 58.com and Anjuke, which are part of the Company's core business.

Non-advertising sales and marketing expenses in the first quarter of 2019 were RMB906.5 million (US$134.6 million), an increase of 19.7% from RMB757.2 million in the same quarter in 2018.

Non-advertising sales and marketing expenses include salaries and benefits, commissions and share-based compensation expenses for the Company's sales, sales support, customer service, marketing dealer management personnel, online and offline promotional expenses, and other operating expenses that are associated with sales and marketing activities.

The increase in non-advertising sales and marketing expenses was mainly related to an increase in field sales teams and customer service personnel commissions and salaries and marketing and promotional expenses for 58.com and newer platforms such as 58 Town and Zhuan Zhuan.

Research and development expenses in the first quarter of 2019 were RMB495.0 million (US$73.5 million), an increase of 42.9% from RMB346.4 million in the same quarter of 2018.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures     

To supplement the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, this press release presents non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income attributable to 58.com Inc. ordinary shareholders, non-GAAP net margin and non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per share and per ADS by excluding share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisitions, change in fair value of long-term investments, share-based compensation expenses included in share of results of equity investees, income tax effects of above GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are important to help investors understand the Company's operating and financial performance, compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis and assess the Company's core operating results, as they exclude certain expenses that are not expected to result in cash payments. The use of the above non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations. Share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisitions, non-cash gain or loss and income tax effects resulting from GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items have been and will continue to be incurred in the future and are not reflected in the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures, but should be considered in the overall evaluation of the Company's results. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing the relevant disclosure of its share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisitions, change in fair value of long-term investments, share-based compensation expenses included in share of results of equity investees, income tax effects of above GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company's performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is set forth at the end of this release.

[6] From the third quarter of 2017, certain share-based awards with redemption features granted to the Company's employees were expected to be
settled in cash and were classified as liabilities. The share-based compensation expenses recognized for this type of awards amounted to RMB5.2
million, RMB5.0 million and RMB4.4 million in the first and fourth quarter of 2018 and the first quarter of 2019, respectively, were excluded
from the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation accordingly.

[7] This is to exclude the income tax benefits related to amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisitions calculated at PRC
statutory income tax rate of 25% and income tax benefits/(expense) related to change in fair value of long-term investments. Other GAAP to non-
GAAP reconciling items have no income tax effect.
