Cost of revenues was US$31.0 million, an increase of 49.8% from US$20.7 million during the same quarter of 2015.

Research and development expenses during the fourth quarter of 2016 were US$45.8 million, an increase of 9.6% from US$41.8 million in the same quarter of 2015.

The increase was primarily driven by increased revenues from Ganji and Anjuke, as well as the organic growth of the 58.com platform.

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/(loss) from operations, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to 58.com Inc., non-GAAP net margin and non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings/(losses) per share and per ADS by excluding (i) share-based compensation expenses of the group, net of the amount allocated to noncontrolling interests, (ii) amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisitions, (iii) loss resulted from revaluation of previously held interest in Ganji, (iv) share-based compensation expenses included in the equity pick-up of net loss of 58 Home and Ganji, (v) gain on deconsolidation and disposal of businesses, net of income tax expense, (vi) compensation to noncontrolling shareholders resulting from waiver of receivables from 58 Home and (vii) loss on conversion of Guazi Convertible Note. 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 and their impact on share-based compensation attributable to noncontrolling interests 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 (i) share-based compensation expenses of the group, net of the amount allocated to noncontrolling interests, (ii) amortization of intangible assets resulting from business acquisitions, (iii) loss resulting from the revaluation of previously held interest in Ganji, (iv) share-based compensation expenses included in the equity pick-up of net loss of 58 Home and Ganji, (v) gain on deconsolidation and disposal of businesses, net of income tax expense, (vi) compensation to noncontrolling shareholders resulting from waiver of receivables from 58 Home and (vii) loss on conversion of Guazi Convertible Note, 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.
