Commenting on the second quarter results, Dr. Xiang, CEO of Hurray! stated: "The past quarter was a challenging and significant one for Hurray! as we effectively completed the scheduled realignment of resources amongst business lines, which help to enhance our operating efficiency and reinforced momentum for future growth. We believe we will be able to significantly narrow down our loss in the following quarter with the continuous rise in operating efficiency and better integration of channel and contents as the result of the aforementioned realignment. We also expect to have a chance of achieving an operation break-even in the foreseeable future. Hurray! is optimistic about the future cooperation with Shanda in light of the complementary content, distribution platforms and large user base which may present both companies with opportunities to achieve synergies going forward."

Business Results

Total revenues for the second quarter ended June 30, 2009 were $9.8 million, representing a decrease of 16.3% from $11.8 million for the preceding quarter, and a decline of 22.9% from $12.8 million for the same quarter last year.

During the second quarter of 2009, the Company took action to reduce its marketing efforts through various channels which had failed to generate the expected profitability, resulting in reduced revenues. Total wireless

value-added services revenues were $5.5 million for the second quarter of 2009, representing a decrease of 29.1% from $7.9 million in the previous quarter and a decrease of 39.3% from $9.2 million in the same quarter of 2008.

Recorded music revenues, which represent revenues of our controlled music companies Freeland Music, Huayi Brothers Music, Hurray! Secular Bird and Seed Music, which was acquired on January 1, 2009, were $4.3 million, representing an increase of 9.4% as compared to $3.9 million in the previous quarter and an increase of 19.5% as compared to $3.6 million in the same period of 2008. The increase arose from the contribution of Seed Music, consolidated from January 1, 2009, which contributed revenues of $1.6 million in the second quarter and $3.8 million year to date.

Total gross margin was 21.3% for the second quarter of 2009 as compared to 16.4% for the previous quarter and 36.4% for the same period of 2008.

Gross margin for wireless value-added services was 26.7% for the second quarter of 2009, as compared to 17.5% in the previous quarter, and 29.8% for the same period of 2008.

Recorded music gross margin was 14.4% for the second quarter of 2009 as compared to 14.0% in the previous quarter and 53.4% for the same period of 2008.

Total gross profit was $2.1 million for the second quarter of 2009, representing an increase of 9.2% compared to $1.9 million for the previous quarter, and a decline of 54.8% as compared to $4.6 million for the same period of 2008.

Total operating expenses were $15.5 million for the second quarter of 2009, which included provisions for account receivable and other current assets of $3.3 million as a result of further detailed assessment for these account balances based on the information became available to us recently, professional service fees relating to the Shanda tender offer of $1.3 million, an impairment for goodwill of $3.0 million and a write-down for intangible assets of $3.5 million for music business, and severance costs of $ 0.4 million. This represents an increase of 208.9% as compared to the total operating expenses of $5.0 million for the previous quarter and an increase of 375.0% as compared to the total operating expenses of $3.3 million for the same period of 2008, net of the reversal of Unicom liability amounting to $1.6 million.

The income tax benefit for the second quarter of 2009 was $435,581 resulting mainly from the reversal of deferred tax liabilities related to the intangible assets impairment as compared to $22,965 in the previous quarter and an income tax expense of $282,250 in the same period of 2008.

We also performed impairment test for our investments in music equity affiliate due to its negative operating cash flow and $0.21 million was recorded as impairment charges in the second quarter.

Net loss attributable to Hurray! Holding was $10.9 million for the second quarter of 2009.

Adjusted EBITDA was negative $5.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2009, as compared with an adjusted EBITDA of negative $1.7 million in the previous quarter. A reconciliation of the (loss) income from continuing operations under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and adjusted EBITDA is included at the end of this release. Adjusted EBITDA excluding additional provisions for trade receivables, expenses related to the tender-offer deal and severance costs, was negative $1.3 million, which demonstrates a slight improvement compared to the previous quarter.

Fully diluted loss per ADS was $0.50 based on a weighted average of 22.0 million diluted ADSs for the second quarter of 2009, as compared to the diluted loss per ADSs of $0.09 based on a weighted average of 22.0 million diluted ADSs for the previous quarter, and a fully diluted earnings per ADS of $0.07 based on a weighted average of 21.9 million diluted ADSs for the second quarter of 2008.

Shanda Interactive Entertainment Limited Announced Final Results and Completion of the Tender Offer for Hurray! Holding Co., Ltd.

On July 22, 2009, Shanda Interactive Entertainment Limited ("Shanda") (Nasdaq: SNDA), a leading interactive entertainment media company in China, and Shanda Music Group Limited ("Shanda Music"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Shanda, announced the final results and completion of the tender offer for 1,155,045,300 ordinary shares, par value $0.00005 per ordinary share ("Shares"), of the Company, including Shares represented by American Depositary Shares ("ADSs," each representing 100 Shares) at a purchase price of $0.04 per Share (equivalent to $4.00 per ADS) in cash, without interest and subject to any applicable withholding taxes.

The tender offer expired at 12:01 a.m., New York City time, on July 15, 2009.

Citibank, N.A., the ADS tender agent, has advised Shanda that based on its final tabulation, 11,568,039 ADSs (representing 1,156,803,900 Shares) were validly tendered and not withdrawn. Conyers Dill & Pearman, the Share tender agent, has advised Shanda that based on its final tabulation, 266,232,760 Shares were validly tendered and not withdrawn. Based on these final results, the aggregate number of Shares (including Shares represented by ADSs) validly tendered and not withdrawn was 1,423,036,660 Shares (including Shares represented by ADSs).

Shanda Music has accepted for payment 1,155,045,300 Shares (including Shares represented by ADSs) that were validly tendered and not withdrawn. Because 1,423,036,660 Shares (including Shares represented by ADSs) were validly tendered and not withdrawn, the resulting proration factor is approximately 81.2% of the number of Shares (including Shares represented by ADSs) validly tendered and not withdrawn. Accordingly, Shanda Music purchased from each tendering shareholder approximately 81.2% of the Shares (including Shares represented by ADSs) that were validly tendered and not withdrawn, subject to adjustments to avoid purchases of fractional Shares or fractional ADSs. Citibank, N.A., the ADS tender agent, has promptly issue checks as payment for the ADSs accepted for payment based on this proration factor and adjustments to avoid purchases of fractional ADSs. Shanda has promptly wire the payments for the Shares accepted for payment based on this proration factor and adjustments to avoid purchase of fractional Shares. All ADSs and Shares tendered but not accepted for payment in the tender offer are returned to the tendering shareholders.

After giving effect to the acquisition of Shares (including Shares represented by ADSs) in the tender offer, Shanda currently hold, through Shanda Music, approximately 51% of the Company's total outstanding Shares calculated on a fully-diluted basis.

The Company has recorded expenses relating to the above amounting to $1.3 million in the second quarter. Under the terms of our agreement with the Company's financial advisors, a further payment of $ 1.23 million is payable in the third quarter and will be a recorded as an expense in that quarter.

The use of non-GAAP financial measures:

To supplement its consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in the United States, Hurray! uses a non-GAAP measure of adjusted EBITDA, which is adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude certain expenses and non-recurring events. Hurray!'s management believes the use of this non-GAAP financial measure provides useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses that are not related to the company's operations. This non-GAAP financial measure also facilitates management's internal comparisons to Hurray!'s historical performance and our competitors' operating results. Hurray! believes this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision making. The presentation of this additional financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Please see below financial table for a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA.
