Non-GAAP net income is defined in this announcement as net income excluding share-based compensation, the impact of goodwill impairment and other one-time expenses. Share-based compensation was RMB 2.2 million ($0.4 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012 and RMB9.0 million ($1.5 million) for the full year 2012."We have made steady progress towards the strategic goal of transforming Concord Medical into a market leader in the healthcare service sector," said Dr. Jianyu Yang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Concord Medical. "During the year, we successfully closed two major acquisitions including a majority ownership position in Chang'An Hospital, one the largest privately-owned general hospitals in China, and 19.98% of indirect ownership of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Proton Therapy Center. Combined, these acquisitions have helped position Concord Medical as a leading provider of healthcare and cancer-related therapies across China."
"In 2012, our network business experienced steady growth, as revenues reached RMB 474.7 million, growing by 5.5% compared to 2011. The CCM network now covers 53 cities in China. Our policy of cost control adapted in 2012 has taken effect by improving our profitability from the network business. In 2013, we will continue to implement the cost control policy and introduce Return on Investment (ROI) as a performance indicator for all CCM centers. All these measures will create more value to our shareholders.
Chang'an Hospital demonstrated great growth momentum in 2012, as the medical revenue grew by over 40% compared to 2011. In July 2012, the Hospital announced that it had established strategic alliance with Fox Chase, a top oncology institution in the USA. In 2013, CCM will continue to strengthen Chang'an Hospital's oncology departments and develop it into a leader for cancer treatment.
The Chinese government issued multiple new policies in 2012 to encourage private investment in the healthcare system," continued Dr. Yang. "The expansion of the universal healthcare system will greatly increase the demand for the services of our network centers as well as Chang'an Hospital. In 2013, we will commence construction on our first oncology specialty hospital, the CCM Huanan Cancer Hospital. We are confident that CCM will leverage the favorable policy environment to meet the growing demand for high-quality, differentiated medical services and introduce the most advanced radiotherapy methods to cancer patients in China."

Recent Developments The company announced on January 4, 2013 that it has closed the acquisition of 19.98% of indirect ownership of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Proton Therapy Center (MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center).
The company announced the signing of a definite agreement in connection with the acquisition on December 11, 2012. MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center is a leading proton treatment center in the world. Concord Medical plans to invest and operate two proton centers in China. The transaction will enable Concord Medical to expand its expertise and knowledge base in preparation for the operation of future proton centers.
After the closing, Concord Medical becomes the second largest owner of the MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center, behind MD Anderson Cancer Center. Concord Medical will join both the Board of Directors of the PTC-Houston Management, LP, the general partner of the center, and the center's Advisory Committee.
"The acquisition of interest in MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center plays a key role in accelerating Concord Medical's strategic plan to build and operate proton centers in China," says Dr. Jianyu Yang, CCM Chairman and CEO. "The transaction solidifies CCM's position as a leading radiotherapy operator in China. We look forward to working closely with MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center in multiple areas."
2013 OutlookBased on current market and operating conditions, estimated business expansion and forecasted Chang'an Hospital financial results, Concord Medical expects to generate total net revenues in an estimated range of RMB930 million to RMB975 million in 2013, which would represent a 38% to 45% increase from 2012. The percentage of revenues from network business and Hospital will be 55% and 45%, respectively. This estimated range includes the full-year result of both the current network business of CCM and Chang'an Hospital.
Finally, the Company is targeting to start construction of one specialty oncology hospital in 2013.
The foregoing reflects Concord Medical's current and preliminary views, which are subject to change.

These forward looking statements are based upon management's current views and expectations with respect to future events and are not a guarantee of future performance. Furthermore, these statements are, by their nature, subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual performance and results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements as a result of a number of factors. Such factors include: the number of new radiotherapy and diagnostic imaging centers opened; the increase in the number of patients in existing centers; the establishment of specialty cancer hospitals; changes in the healthcare industry in China, including changes in the healthcare policies and regulations of the PRC government; and technological or therapeutic changes affecting the field of cancer treatment and diagnostic imaging. Further information regarding these and other risks is included in the Company's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission at www.sec.gov.

Statement Regarding Unaudited Financial InformationThe Company's independent auditors are in the process of completing an audit of the Company's U.S. GAAP financial statements for 2011. These unaudited 2011 numbers disclosed in this announcement are, therefore, subject to change.
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 non-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 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 (loss) income plus interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation expenses and other adjustments. Other adjustments include change in fair value of convertible notes, foreign exchange loss and other income. Furthermore, Adjusted EBITDA eliminates the impact of items that the Company does not consider indicative of the performance of its network of centers. 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 statements.
