Financial Results

Due to strong growth in sales of subscription packages particularly the Value Engine series, deferred revenue at the end of the fourth quarter of 2006, which represents prepaid service fees made by customers for subscription services that have not been rendered as at December 31, 2006, reached the Company's historical high of $6.42 million, an increase of 245% compared to $1.86 million for the same period in year 2005 and an increase of 126% compared to $2.84 million in the previous quarter.

During the fourth quarter of 2006, China Finance Online reported net revenues of $2.52 million, an increase of 33% from $1.90 million for the same period in 2005, and an increase of 46% from $1.73 million in the third quarter of 2006. The increase is primarily due to the growth in subscription service fees from individual customers. Revenues from advertising-related business for the quarter contributed $194,000, representing 8% of net revenues for the quarter. Revenues from subscription service fees paid by institutional customers for the quarter were $179,000, representing 7% of net revenues for the quarter. Revenues from wireless related services for the quarter were $298,000, representing 12% of net revenues for the quarter.

For the full year ended December 31, 2006, net revenues decreased by 5% to US$7.13 million from US$7.48 million for the full year 2005.

Gross profit for the quarter was $1.89 million, an increase of 8% from $1.75 million for the same period in 2005 and an increase of 34% from $1.41 million for the third quarter of 2006. Gross margin was 75% in the fourth quarter, compared to 92% for the same period in 2005 and to 81% for the third quarter of 2006.

Gross profit for the full year 2006 decreased by 19% to $5.66 million from $7 million for the full year 2005. Gross margin for the full year 2006 was 79% compared with 94% for the full year 2005.

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter totalled $2.64 million, an increase of 155% from $1.03 million reported for the same period in 2005. This increase is primarily due to expansion in operating scale associated with the acquisitions of Stockstar.com and Shenzhen Genius, as well as increase in compensation expenses as a result of increased sales force and product development headcounts in the fourth quarter. Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2006 included $201,000 of stock-based compensation primarily as a result of adopting SFAS 123R in 2006 to recognize stock-based compensation over the service period.

-- General and administrative expenses for the quarter were $1.05 million,

an increase of 142% from $433,000 for the same period in 2005. This

increase is primarily due to expansion in operating scale associated

with the acquisitions of Stockstar.com and Shenzhen Genius, and to a

lesser extent, an increase in stock-based compensation expenses

primarily as a result of adopting SFAS 123R. General and

administrative expenses for the fourth quarter included $150,000 in

stock-based compensation.

-- Sales and marketing expenses for the fourth quarter increased by 131%

from $541,000 for the same period in 2005 to $1.25 million. This

increase is largely due to compensation expenses as a result of

increased sales forces, including those associated with the

acquisitions. Sales and marketing expenses for the fourth quarter of

2006 also included $23,000 in stock-based compensation primarily as a

result of adopting SFAS 123R.

-- Product development expenses for the quarter were $334,000, an increase

of 476% from $58,000 for the same period in 2005, which is primarily

due to increases in employee compensation as a result of increased

headcounts, including those associated with the acquisitions. Product

development expenses for the quarter also included stock-based

compensation of $28,000 primarily as a result of adopting SFAS 123R.

For the year ended December 31, 2006, total operating expenses were $6.36 million, an increase of 69% from $3.77 million for the full year 2005.

As a result of the foregoing, loss from operations for the fourth quarter of 2006 was $741,000, compared to operating income of $722,000 for the same period in 2005 and operating income of $247,000 for the third quarter of 2006. Excluding stock-based compensation expenses of $225,000 primarily due to adoption of SFAS 123R, loss from operations for the quarter would have been $516,000.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2006 was recorded $1.70 million, a decrease of 260% from net income of $1.06 million for the same period in 2005 and a decrease of 405% from net income of $557,000 for the previous quarter. In the fourth quarter the Company recorded an investment impairment of $1.32 million in our cost investment in Moloon. Non-GAAP net loss, which excludes the stock-based compensation expenses of $225,000 primarily due to adoption of SFAS 123R and the $1.32 million investment impairment in Moloon, was $149,000.

As part of the net loss for the fourth quarter, the Company recorded a net exchange gain of $82,000 due to the recent change in the exchange rates between U.S. dollar and RMB.

For the full year 2006, loss from operations was $704,000, a decrease of 122% from operating income of $3.23 million for the full year 2005. Net loss for the full year 2006 was $600,000, compared to net income of $4.62 million for the full year 2005, a decrease of 113% year-over-year.

Net income margin for the fourth quarter of 2006 was -67%, compared to 56% for the same period in 2005 and 32% for the third quarter. Excluding the investment impairment of $1.32 million in Moloon and stock-based compensation expenses of $225,000 primarily due to the adoption of SFAS 123R, non-GAAP net income margin for the fourth quarter of 2006 would have been -6%. Total income tax benefit for the quarter was $77,000, compared to income tax provision of $80,000 for the same period in 2005 and income tax provision of $18,000 for the third quarter of 2006.

Basic loss per ADS was $0.09, and basic loss per share was $0.02 for the fourth quarter of 2006. Diluted loss per ADS was $0.08, and diluted loss per share was $0.02 for the quarter. Excluding the investment impairment of $1.32 million in Moloon and stock-based compensation expenses of $225,000 primarily due to the adoption of SFAS 123R, non-GAAP basic and diluted loss per ADS were both $0.01, and non-GAAP basic and diluted loss per share were both $0.00.

For the full year 2006, net income margin was -8% compared to 62% for the full year 2005. Basic and diluted loss per ADS was both US$0.03 for the full year 2006. Basic and diluted loss per share was both US$0.01 for the full year 2006.

Balance of cash and cash equivalents was approximately $44.96 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2006.

Investment Impairment

In December of 2005, the Company purchased a minority interest in Moloon, a provider of mobile stream media technology and services. During the second half of 2006, China Mobile Communication Corporation announced policy changes in accordance with directives from China's Ministry of Information Industry. The changes involve, among other things, requirements for mobile value-added service ("MVAS") providers such as Moloon to extend free trial periods for customers prior to subscriptions and to send reminders confirming new and existing subscriptions. These policy changes had a substantial negative impact on all MVAS providers including on Moloon's MVAS business in the fourth quarter of 2006. Consequently, following an independent valuation of the Company's equity investment in Moloon based on its MVAS business, it is determined that a decline in value had occurred and the Company recorded non-cash asset impairment in total of $1.32 million, reducing the carrying balance of such investment from $13.93 million to $12.61 million.

Currently, Moloon has adopted new strategies to transform itself into a leading provider of mobile online gaming services, and the value of our investment in Moloon may improve if such strategies prove to be effective.

Integration of Stockstar.com and Shenzhen Genius

In the fourth quarter of 2006, the Company made significant progress in fully integrating Stockstar.com and Shenzhen Genius with its existing operations in such key areas as sales, product development and IT. Collectively, Stocktar.com and Shenzhen Genius contributed positive operating cash flows in this fourth quarter.

Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement the unaudited condensed consolidated financial information presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), the Company uses non-GAAP measures of net income and net income per share, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude non-cash investment impairment and the compensation cost of share-based awards granted to employees primarily due to the adoption of SFAS 123R, which became effective on January 1, 2006. The non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance the investors' overall understanding of the Company's current and past financial performance in on-going core operations as well as prospects for the future.
