Ace Technology Partners just announced the completion of a major workstation order for USAF Air Mobility Command (AMC) Mission Planning. The order was for 835 custom workstations, each with two monitors, that can accommodate legacy technology and achieve compatibility with multiple operating systems. Ace Technology Partners Regional Sales Manager Gary Mosso said, “Building these workstations to be compatible with several operating systems was a challenge for our engineers. Also, we had to source components that are generally not available anymore. But the experience of our engineers and our strong partner network allowed us to deliver exactly what this client wanted.” Before the initial order was officially awarded, Mission Planning required a test workstation from a number of vendors, including Ace Technology Partners. The company won the award because of a superior product built with high quality components at a competitive price. Once the order was completed, Mission Planning performed a second round of comprehensive tests on a representative sample prior to shipment. Mission Planning has since ordered 268 additional workstations. “Because they worked with us many times before, they already knew that our systems are very reliable,” Mosso said. “That helped us win this initial workstation order and the additional business. There was a level of comfort and an outstanding value proposition. Mission Planning received a very reliable, high quality system that was competitively priced.” These workstations were ordered out of Scott Air Force Base, which is one of the top strategic military installations in the U.S. The base commands and controls all air, land and sea logistics of the U.S. military. Scott AFB is operated by the 375th Air Mobility Wing and is also home to the Air Force Reserve Command's 932nd Airlift Wing and the Illinois Air National Guard's 126th Air Refueling Wing. Ace Technology Partners CEO John Samborski said, “Our mutually beneficial relationship with the U.S. military extends back more than three decades. The fact that we have been able to perform to their exacting standards all of this time sends a strong message to the entire marketplace that we sell and back superior products.” NETCENTS 2 provides federal agencies, including the U.S. Air Force and Department of Defense, with a thoroughly vetted source for standardized networking equipment, supplies and related services. Products that Ace Technology Partners is authorized to sell through NETCENTS 2 include servers, storage, networking equipment, peripherals, multimedia, software, and identity management/biometric hardware and software.

BEIJING, May 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Bitauto Holdings Limited ("Bitauto" or the "Company") (NYSE: BITA), a leading provider of internet content & marketing services, and transaction services for China's fast-growing automotive industry, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017[1]. Mr. William Li, chief executive officer and chairman of Bitauto said, "We are pleased to report a set of solid results for the first quarter of 2017, as total revenue for the quarter increased 41.1% year-over-year, with transaction services growing 193.5% year-over-year. Our Non-GAAP net income for the quarter rose 102.3% year-over-year to RMB156.9 million, thanks to improved operating efficiency and economies of scale in our new businesses." "As we build Bitauto into the preferred platform for auto consumption in China, we remain focused on the following three areas: traffic, leads-to-transaction conversion rate, and monetization capabilities in both our media and transaction businesses. With regard to traffic, we recently formed strategic partnerships with Baidu on Aladdin covering both mobile and PC, and with leading news aggregation app Toutiao. These collaborations will enhance traffic, the quality of sales leads and the Bitauto brand. To increase our conversion rate and monetization capabilities, we will continue to develop China's most powerful auto related big data competence based on the most comprehensive and dynamically updated automobile and user behavior data. Big data is enabling us to uncover consumer demand at various stages of the auto purchase cycle and to generate more revenue with multi-purpose transactions covering financing, trade-ins and insurance. We will also apply this data competence to creating next-gen marketing tools to improve both user experience and drive media revenue growth. As we make gradual progress in these strategic areas, we also expect to benefit from enhanced synergies across our business lines." Mr. Andy Zhang, president of Bitauto, said, "In the first quarter of 2017 our transaction services business saw strong growth as we successfully fulfilled rising consumer demand for online auto financing and offered more diversified products with partner institutions on our transaction services platform. We expect revenue and profit contributions from platform services to increase as part of transaction services going forward." "We are also delighted to report that Yixin, Bitauto's transaction services subsidiary, has entered into agreements with strategic shareholders including Bitauto, Tencent, China Orient AMC International, and SF Express founder Mr. Wei Wang to receive new investments. Upon completion of the deal, Bitauto will hold no less than 48% of Yixin's outstanding share capital and continue to consolidate the financials of Yixin, which we believe will create additional long-term value for our shareholders." Ms. Cynthia He, chief financial officer of Bitauto, said, "Bitauto delivered robust results for the first quarter of 2017, with continued momentum in our transaction services business and encouraging progress in enhancement efforts across media and transaction services. Our margins for the quarter also showed strong improvement as a result of new business growth and operating efficiency. Looking forward, we will continue to allocate resources towards enhancing the Bitauto brand, user traffic, and big data capabilities in order to strengthen our long-term competitiveness." Bitauto reported revenue of RMB1.55 billion (US$224.5 million) for the first quarter of 2017, representing a 41.1% increase from the corresponding period in 2016. The increase in revenue was primarily attributable to the growth of the Company's transaction services business. Cost of revenue for the first quarter of 2017 was RMB519.0 million (US$75.4 million), representing a year-over-year increase of 47.0% from the corresponding period in 2016. Cost of revenue as a percentage of revenue in the first quarter of 2017 was 33.6%, compared to 32.2% in the corresponding period in 2016. The increase was primarily due to increased cost related to transaction services. Gross profit for the first quarter of 2017 was RMB1.03 billion (US$149.1 million), representing a 38.3% increase from the corresponding period in 2016. Selling and administrative expenses were RMB921.0 million (US$133.8 million) for the first quarter of 2017, representing a 28.2% increase from the corresponding period in 2016. This increase was primarily attributable to the increase in headcount and related expenses. Product development expenses were RMB116.8 million (US$17.0 million) for the first quarter of 2017, representing an 18.9% increase from the corresponding period in 2016. The increase was primarily due to an increase in product development headcount and related expenses. Share-based payment expenses, which were allocated to related operating expense line items, were RMB65.2 million (US$9.5 million) in the first quarter of 2017, compared to RMB24.0 million (US$3.5 million) in the corresponding period in 2016. The increase was mainly due to the granting of restricted share units in the first quarter of 2017. Loss from operations in the first quarter of 2017 was RMB10.9 million (US$1.6 million), compared to a loss from operations of RMB66.5 million (US$9.7 million) in the corresponding period in 2016.

The increase was mainly due to the impact of increased income from operations for some of the Company's subsidiaries. Net loss in the first quarter of 2017 was RMB50.1 million (US$7.3 million), compared to a net loss of RMB99.8 million (US$14.5 million) in the corresponding period in 2016. Basic and diluted net loss per ADS, each representing one ordinary share, in the first quarter of 2017 amounted to RMB1.69 (US$0.25) and RMB1.78 (US$0.26), respectively, taking into consideration the accretion to redeemable noncontrolling interests amounting to RMB80.3 million (US$11.7 million). Non-GAAP net income in the first quarter of 2017 was RMB156.9 million (US$22.8 million), representing a 102.3% increase from the corresponding period in 2016. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ADS in the first quarter of 2017 amounted to RMB1.22 (US$0.18) and RMB1.09 (US$0.16), respectively, taking into consideration the accretion to redeemable noncontrolling interests amounting to RMB80.3 million (US$11.7 million). As of March 31, 2017, the Company had cash and cash equivalents, time deposit and restricted cash of RMB8.34 billion (US$1.21 billion). Cash used in operating activities, cash used in investing activities, and cash from financing activities in the first quarter of 2017 were RMB225.8 million (US$32.8 million), RMB968.6 million (US$140.7 million), and RMB3.44 billion (US$500.2 million), respectively.

The number of employees totaled 7,661 as of March 31, 2017, including employees of the entities in which Bitauto acquired and holds controlling interests. This represented a 34.6% increase from March 31, 2016, which was primarily due to additional headcount from Kankanche that we acquired in the fourth quarter of 2016. As of March 31, 2017, the Company had a total of 70,726,025 ordinary shares, with 34,625,744 ADSs issued and outstanding. Each ADS represents one ordinary share of the Company. Non-GAAP basic and diluted per ADS figures for the first quarter of 2017 were calculated using a weighted average of 69,345,055 and 76,896,273 ADSs, respectively. Bitauto, along with Tencent, China Orient AMC International, and SF Express founder Mr. Wei Wang, have entered into definitive agreements to invest up to RMB4 billion into Yixin Capital Limited, Bitauto's transaction services subsidiary. The transactions are expected to close by the end of May 2017, subject to customary closing conditions, whereupon Bitauto will hold no less than 48% of Yixin's outstanding share capital. In addition, to better reflect the nature of its business, Yixin Capital Limited will change its name to Yixin Group Limited. Bitauto currently expects to generate revenue in the range of RMB1.83 billion (US$265.9 million) to RMB1.88 billion (US$273.1 million) in the second quarter of 2017, representing a 30.4% to 34.0% increase from the corresponding period in 2016.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures To supplement Bitauto's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, Bitauto uses Non-GAAP income from operations, Non-GAAP net income and Non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ADS as non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP income from operations is defined as income from operations excluding (i) share-based payments and (ii) amortization of intangible assets resulting from asset and business acquisitions. Non-GAAP net income is defined as net income excluding (i) share-based payments; (ii) amortization of intangible assets resulting from asset and business acquisitions; (iii) share of amortization of equity investments' intangible assets not on their books; (iv) investment income associated with non-cash investment matters; and (v) amortization of the BCF discount on the convertible notes. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ADS is defined as Non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of the parent company divided by basic and diluted weighted average number of ADS. These non-GAAP financial measures provide Bitauto's management with the ability to assess its operating results by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of the performance of its business such as non-cash and non-recurring items. Bitauto believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors by understanding supplemental information used by management in its assessment of operating results. The use of non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations. These non-GAAP measures exclude certain items that have been and will continue to be incurred in the future and are not reflected in the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and should not be considered a substitute for or superior to U.S. GAAP results. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures utilized by other companies since such other companies may not calculate such measures in the same manner as Bitauto does. Reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure is set forth at the end of this release.

Warner Bros.' The Lego Batman Movie earned the most nominations of any film by title with 11 followed by 9 nominations each for Disney's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, and Lionsgate's La La Land. Top trailer houses in this year's pack included Mark Woollen & Associates with 33 nominations, AV Squad with 29 noms, and Trailer Park with 28. On the agency side, LA was the leading creative print house for their work on 34 nominees. The Golden Trailer Awards are presented live on stage to nominees in diverse categories that range from serious to lighthearted, including Best Summer 2017 Blockbuster Trailer, Trashiest Trailer, Best of Show, and the most popular award of the night: the Golden Fleece Award, bestowed on the best trailer for the film where the marketing was considered better than the film itself. Explained Watters, "Trailers, commercials and posters are a true and unique art form and the Golden Trailer Awards celebrate the artists and editors who work tirelessly behind the scenes to create these amazing marketing materials. This year's nominees represent the best-of-the-best of the year in film and television marketing. We love the outstanding caliber of the creativity and are honored to once again shine a light on this special part of the industry." 17 of the top honors are presented "live" on stage at the celebratory show, which routinely sells out and draws a heavy industry crowd of studio and network marketing executives, representatives from creative agencies, media and celebrities. This year's competition drew a record number of submissions, up nearly 50% from last year's total. In total, Golden Trailer Awards are presented to winners across 116 diverse categories. Last year, more than 1,100 studio marketing executives, movie fans, celebrities and trailer editors were on hand to celebrate as Open Road Films & Insync Plus' trailer for the film "Spotlight" took home top honors as the Best of Show.
