SHANGHAI, July 15 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- The9 Limited (Nasdaq: NCTY) ("The9") filed its annual report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 千亿2008 with the Securities and Exchange Commission today. On April 16, 2009, The9 announced that it had learned that Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft will be licensed to another China-based online game company following the expiration of the license agreement with The9. As a result of the expiration and non-renewal of the license agreement, as well as taking into consideration certain other events that occurred subsequent to year-end in connection with certain other licensed games and lower than expected operating performance of one of its games, The9 has revised the amounts of certain of the line items included in the financial information as of and for the year and quarter ended December 31, 2008 that The9 announced in a Form 6-K on February 24, 2009. The net income and basic and diluted earnings per share for the year ended December 31, 2008 presented in The9's annual report on Form 20-F are 72% lower than those for the same period presented in the Form 6-K on February 24, 2009. Attached is a comparison of the amounts included in the 2008 Form 20-F which The9 filed today and the amounts reported on February 24, 2009.

Note: Numbers extracted from the 2008 audited financial statements

Notes:

A. Recognition of additional revenue in connection with WoW CD-Key. Prior to 2008, CD-Key fees are amortized over one-year period; effective January 1, 2008, they are amortized over the shorter of one year or WoW's remaining license period, starting from the time when the game players activate the

CD-Key. The corresponding additional deferred cost and sales taxes are accrued accordingly. Details see 2008 audited financial statements Note

2< 14 >.

B. Gross profit decreased because the Company recorded impairment and certain other charges in cost of services, as a result of the non-renewal of the WoW license agreement beyond June 7, 2009 including WoW-related prepaid royalties and inventories included in prepayments and other current assets. In addition, the Company adjusted the expected useful life of the servers and related equipment, and the expected value of the servers and related equipment at the end of the WoW license. Details see 2008 audited financial statements Note 2< 8 >. The effect of depreciation charge increased cost of services in 2008 Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q4 by RMB14,058,294, RMB16,860,935, RMB17,882,051 and RMB19,569,203, respectively.

C. Additional general and administrative expenses are recorded since certain prepayment for equipment, advances to suppliers, accounts receivable and prepayments and other current assets were written off due to the expiration and non-renewal of WoW. Details see 2008 audited financial statements Notes 16, 2< 7 > and 22.

D. Impairment provision is made due to the write off of intangible assets and equipment. As a result of the non-renewal of the WoW license agreement beyond June 7, 2009, as well as taking into consideration certain other events that occurred subsequent to year-end in connection with certain other licensed games and lower than expected operating performance of Granado Espada, the Company recorded impairment and certain charged to upfront licensed fee and computer and equipment. Details see 2008 audited financial statements Note 13.

E. Valuation allowance of deferred tax assets is provided based on the latest estimated future utilization of deferred tax assets, which is revised due to the expiration and non-renewal of WoW license. Details see 2008 audited financial statements Notes 15.
