(Logo: /uploads/allimg/180930/20180930121406ftf2gmnnfx239275.JPG )

Highlights

-- Total gross revenues increased 1% year-on-year to RMB86.9 million and

net revenues increased 1% year-on-year to RMB81.9 million.

Total gross revenues by product were as follows (figures in RMB million):

% % Y/Y

Q2 2009 Total Q2 2008 Total Growth

Hotel commissions 59.3 68 % 63.2 74 % (6%)

Air ticketing

commissions 21.7 25 % 18.3 21 % 19 %

Other 5.9 7 % 4.5 5 % 31 %

Gross revenues 86.9 100 % 86.0 100 % 1 %

-- Operating income in the second quarter was RMB6.4 million compared to

operating loss of RMB7.9 million in the prior year period, driven

primarily by decreases in sales and marketing and general and

administrative expenses.

-- Net income in the second quarter was RMB9.5 million compared to net

loss of RMB20.3 million in the prior year period, driven primarily by

an increase of RMB14.3 million in operating income and a decrease of

RMB19.5 million in foreign currency exchange losses, partially offset

by a decrease of RMB2.9 million in interest income and an increase of

RMB1.1 million in income tax expense.

-- Cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments as of June 30,

2009 were RMB915.5 million (USD$134.0 million). Short-term investments

of RMB307.0 million (USD$45.0 million) were comprised of time deposits

of nine months duration held in commercial banks located outside

mainland China.

"In the second quarter of 2009, we delivered eLong's highest ever quarterly operating income of RMB6.4 million. We are also delighted to have delivered positive net income for two consecutive quarters, and believe these results demonstrate that our turnaround is gaining momentum." said Guangfu Cui, Chief Executive Officer of eLong.

"While we achieved only modest revenue growth, we are pleased with the continued progress in controlling costs and improving marketing efficiency." said Mike Doyle, Chief Financial Officer of eLong.

Business Results

Hotel

Hotel commissions decreased 6% for the second quarter of 2009 compared to the prior year quarter, primarily due to lower commission per room night, which was partially offset by higher volume. Commission per room night decreased 8% year-on-year primarily due to lower average daily rates (including an increase in the proportion of total volume from budget hotels), partially offset by an increase in hotel commission rates. Room nights booked through eLong in the second quarter increased 1% year-on-year to 980,000.

Air

Air ticketing commissions increased 19% for the second quarter of 2009 compared to the prior year quarter, driven by a 24% increase in air segments to 510,000, partially offset by a decrease of 3% in the average ticket price compared to the prior year quarter.

Profitability

Gross margin in the second quarter of 2009 was 71% which was the same as in the second quarter of 2008.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2009 and same period in 2008 were as follows (figures in RMB million):

% Net % Net Y/Y

Q2 2009 Revenue Q2 2008 Revenue Growth

Service development 13.2 16% 13.3 17% (1%)

Sales and marketing 27.4 33% 38.9 48% (29%)

Charges related to

intangible assets -- -- 0.1 -- (100%)

Total operating

expenses 51.9 63% 65.5 81% (21%)

Total operating expenses decreased 21% for the second quarter of 2009 compared to the second quarter of 2008. Total operating expenses were 63% of net revenue, a decrease of 18 percentage points compared to the prior year quarter.

Service development expense is composed of expenses related to technology and our product offerings, including our website, platforms and other systems development. Service development expense decreased 1% compared to the prior year quarter and declined as a percentage of net revenue from 17% a year ago to 16% in the second quarter of 2009, mainly driven by a decrease in outside service fees, partially offset by increases in labor costs.

Sales and marketing expenses for the second quarter of 2009 decreased 29% over the prior year quarter, mainly driven by decreased marketing promotion expenses and sales commissions, decreased expenses related to loyalty point awards, and decreased labor costs. Sales and marketing expenses decreased to 33% of net revenues in the second quarter 2009 from 48% in the same quarter of the prior year.

General and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2009 decreased 14% compared to the prior year quarter, mainly driven by a decrease in professional fees. General and administrative expenses decreased to 14% of net revenues in the second quarter of 2009 from 16% in the same quarter of the prior year.

Other income, which represents interest income, foreign exchange gains/losses and other income/expense, was RMB3.5 million in the second quarter of 2009, primarily due to interest income of RMB3.9 million, partially offset by foreign currency exchange loss of RMB0.4 million resulting from the appreciation of the Renminbi against the US dollar. Other income/(loss) was a loss of RMB13.1 million in the second quarter of 2008.

Net income for the second quarter of 2009 was RMB9.5 million, compared to net loss of RMB20.3 million during the prior year quarter.

Basic and diluted net income per ADS for the second quarter of 2009 were RMB0.40 and RMB0.38, compared to basic and diluted loss per ADS of RMB0.80 in the prior year quarter.

Business Outlook

eLong currently expects net revenues for the third quarter of 2009 to be within the range of RMB88 million to RMB97 million, equal to an increase of 5% to 15% compared to the third quarter of 2008.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principals in the United States, or GAAP, this press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures including basic net income/(loss) per ADS, diluted net income/(loss) per ADS, share-based compensation charges and unrealized foreign exchange losses/(gains). The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are important to help investors understand the Company's current financial performance and future prospects and compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP.
