Business

ATHMis the leading online destination for automobile consumers in China. Through its two websites, autohome.com.cn and che168.com, ATHM delivers comprehensive, independent and interactive content to automobile buyers and owners.

Autohome.com.cn ranked first among China’s automotive websites and automotive channels of internet portals in terms of average daily unique visitors, average daily time spent per user and average daily page views in the nine months ended September 2013, based on data published by iResearch, a third-party market research firm, or iResearch Public Data.

In the same period, autohome.com.cn accounted for 46% of the total time that China’s internet users spent viewing online automotive information, more than four times that of ATHM’s closest competitor, according to the iResearch Public Data.

ATHMhas developed a strong and well-recognized brand. ATHM’s “ LOGO ” (“Autohome”) brand has been the most searched automotive-related keyword during substantially the entire period since July 2011 on Baidu.com, the leading Chinese language internet search engine.

ATHM’s ability to reach a large and engaged user base of automobile consumers has made it a preferred platform for automakers and dealers to conduct their advertising campaigns.

 ATHM generates substantially all of its revenues from online advertising services and dealer subscription services with automakers contributing the substantial majority of its total net revenues.

ATHMhas a high penetration rate in the automaker market, with 80% of over 80 automakers operating in China having advertised on ATHM’s websites in each of 2010, 2011, 2012 and the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

In addition, a large and rapidly growing number of dealers are purchasing ATHM’s advertising services and subscription services, through which they showcase and market their inventories on ATHM’s websites.

Intellectual property

ATHMcurrently has 20 pending patent applications.

Competition

ATHMcompetes with China’s automotive websites, such as pcauto.com.cn and bitauto.com, automotive channels of major internet portals, such as Sina and Sohu, and traditional forms of media, such as television and magazines.

ATHMcompetes primarily on the basis of user traffic, user engagement and brand recognition, which drive the acquisition and retention of automakers and dealers as advertisers and their spending on ATHM’s advertising services.

ATHMre-designed its che168.com website in October 2011 and converted it into its dedicated used car platform. ATHM’s re-designed che168.com website faces competition from other used car websites, such as 51auto.com and taoche.com.
