REVENUES: Net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased by 31.3% to
RMB417.8 million (US$67.1 million) from RMB318.3 million in the comparative
period in 2011.

Net revenues from hosting and related services increased by 44.6% to RMB253.4
million (US$40.7 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012 from RMB175.2 million
in the comparative period in 2011, primarily due to an increase in the total
number of cabinets under management in both the Company's self-built and
partnered data centers. Net revenues from managed network services increased
by 14.9% to RMB164.4 million (US$26.4 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012
from RMB143.0 million in the comparative period in 2011, primarily driven by
an increase in network capacity demand for data transmission services.

GROSS PROFIT: For the fourth quarter of 2012, gross profit increased by 29.2%
to RMB113.7 million (US$18.3 million) from RMB88.1 million in the comparative
period in 2011. Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2012 remained stable at
27.2% compared with the comparative period in 2011.

Adjusted gross profit, which excludes share-based compensation expenses and
amortization of intangible assets derived from acquisitions, increased by
28.5% to RMB123.3 million (US$19.8 million) from RMB96.0 million in the
comparative period in 2011. Adjusted gross margin was 29.5% in the fourth
quarter of 2012, compared with 30.2% in the comparative period in 2011.

million), compared to RMB79.9 million in the comparative period in 2011.

Sales and marketing expenses increased to RMB31.6 million (US$5.1 million)
from RMB25.5 million in the comparative period in 2011, primarily due to the
expansion of the Company's sales and service support team.

General and administrative expenses increased to RMB49.4 million (US$7.9
million) from RMB24.4 million in the comparative period in 2011, primarily due
to an increase in headcount, office rentals and other expansion related

million) from RMB10.0 million in the comparative period in 2011, which

gain of RMB40.1 million (US$6.4 million) in the fourth quarter of 2012,
compared with a loss in the change in fair value of contingent purchase
consideration payable of RMB20.0 million in the prior year period. This
non-cash gain was primarily due to a decrease in the market value of the
Company's shares, which resulted in a decrease in the fair value of
share-based contingent purchase considerations payable as of December 31, 2012
associated with the Company's acquisitions of the Managed Network Entities,
Gehua and Fastweb.

Adjusted operating expenses, which exclude share-based compensation expenses
and the changes in the fair value of contingent purchase consideration
payable, increased to RMB77.5 million (US$12.4 million) from RMB50.0 million
in the comparative period in 2011. As a percentage of net revenue, adjusted
operating expenses were 18.5%, compared to 15.7% in the comparative period in

period in 2011. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the quarter was 18.7%, compared
with 19.2% in the previous quarter and 20.5% in the comparative period in
2011. Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2012 excludes share-based
compensation expenses of RMB22.4 million (US$3.6 million) and changes in the
fair value of contingent purchase consideration payable of RMB40.1 million
(US$6.4 million).

NET PROFIT/LOSS: Net profit for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased to
RMB43.1 million (US$6.9 million), compared to RMB11.5 million in the
comparative period in 2011.

compensation expenses of RMB22.4 million (US$3.6 million), amortization of
intangible assets derived from acquisitions of RMB8.1 million (US$1.3
million), and changes in the fair value of contingent purchase consideration
payableandrelateddeferredtaximpact of RMB34.1 million (US$5.5 million) in
the aggregate. Adjusted net margin was 9.5%, compared to 14.6% in the
comparative period in 2011. The decrease in adjusted net profit was primarily
due toan increase in operating expenses, an increase in expenses associated
with the Microsoft partnership, and a reduction in foreign exchange gain.

EARNING/LOSS PER SHARE: Diluted earnings per ordinary share for the fourth
quarter of 2012 was RMB0.12, which represents the equivalent of RMB0.72
(US$0.12) per American Depositary Share ("ADS").Each ADS represents six

equivalents and short-term investment were RMB655.0 million (US$105.1
million), compared to RMB1.3billion as of December 31, 2011.
