Highlights for Full Year 2013    oNet revenues in 2013 were US$87.2 million, representing a 1.8% decrease     from 2012.   oChina Digital TV shipped approximately 17.00 million smart cards in 2013,     compared to 15.35 million smart cards in 2012.   oGross margin was 75.1% in 2013, compared to 76.5% in 2012.   oDiluted earnings per ADS in 2013 were US$0.41 compared to US$0.12 in 2012.  "I am pleased to report that during the fourth quarter of 2013, increased demand resulted in China Digital TV shipping its highest volume of smart cards for the year, significantly exceeding our expectations," said Mr. Jianhua Zhu, China Digital TV's chairman and chief executive officer. "In addition to usual seasonal factors ahead of the Chinese New Year, the better-than-expected shipment volume for this quarter was largely due to increased smart card demand from key Chinese cable TV operators, including in Jiangsu, Guangdong, Sichuan, Shandong, and Jiangxi provinces. Smart card shipments in 2013 increased 11% from 2012, which was partially driven by the pent up demand after the completion of network consolidation in most provinces in 2012 led to delays in smart card purchases by certain cable operators."  Mr. Zhu continued, "The development and optimization of our value-added services and products, and the leveraging of our core technologies for new growth, remain key areas of focus for China Digital TV. As part of our ongoing efforts, in the fourth quarter of 2013, we launched the interactive video on demand transmission channel IP Quadrature Amplitude Modulation in Fujian Province and expanded the deployment of our cloud computing platforms to Kunshan and Changshu. In addition to value-added services, solid growth in the overseas market continues to be an important driver of our market diversification strategy, and in the fourth quarter and full year 2013 we made excellent progress in key markets such as Venezuela, Taiwan and India."  "In 2014, we will continue building on the achievements we made during 2013 solidifying our competitiveness in the mainland China smart card market, strengthening our smart card position overseas, and developing our diversification strategy internationally with a focus on new value-added service areas like video on demand systems and cloud services. In addition, we will also focus on building out our offering in the Internet TV and mobile TV sectors, where we believe our core technology should provide China Digital TV a strategic opportunity to expand into different business sectors," said Mr. Zhu.  Mr. Zhenwen Liang, China Digital TV's chief financial officer, commented, "China Digital TV was very pleased with the strong financial performance we saw in the fourth quarter of 2013. Our strength in the market enabled us to capitalize on the overall uptick in demand for smart cards, resulting in improved top and bottom line performance year-on-year and sequentially. In addition, we have continued to promote our strategy of investing in research and development to further improve our value-added services."

Sales of smart cards and other products accounted for 95.0% of total revenues in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 95.2% in the third quarter of 2013. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to an increase in the shipment volume of smart cards, which was partially offset by a decrease in sales of other products, such as surface mounted chips and multimedia home entertainment boxes. The quarter-over-quarter increase was principally due to increase in the shipment volume of smart cards.  Revenues from services were US$1.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of 12.8% from the same period in 2012 and an increase of 16.2% from the third quarter of 2013. Service revenues accounted for 5.0% of total revenues in the fourth quarter of 2013. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to a decline in revenues from licensing income, royalty income and head-end system integration, which was partially offset by an increase in the revenue from head-end system development. The quarter-over-quarter increase was principally due to increases in revenues from head-end system development and head-end system integration, which were partially offset by decreases in royalty income and licensing income.  Gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2013 was US$19.8 million, an increase of 12.2% from the same period in 2012 and an increase of 15.9% from the third quarter of 2013. Gross margin, which is equal to gross profit divided by net revenues, was 76.4% in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 76.2% in the same period in 2012 and 74.0% in the third quarter of 2013. The year-over-year increase in gross margin was primarily due to an increase in revenues from sales of smart cards, as well as a decrease in the proportion of total revenues accounted for by revenues from other products, which have lower margins than smart cards. The quarter-over-quarter increase in gross margin was mainly due to an increase in revenues from smart cards sales and a lower inventory write-down as compared to the third quarter of 2013.  In the fourth quarter of 2013, the average selling price (the "ASP") of smart cards increased by 5.2% compared to the third quarter of 2013. In addition, the unit cost of smart cards increased by 10.7% compared to the third quarter of 2013.  Operating expenses  in the fourth quarter of 2013 were US$10.2 million, a decrease of 5.1% from the same period in 2012 and a decrease of 9.2% from the third quarter of 2013.    oResearch and development expenses for the fourth quarter of 2013 were     US$4.1 million, a decrease of 8.0% from the same period in 2012 and a     decrease of 22.3% from the third quarter of 2013. The year-over-year     decrease was primarily due to decreases in office rent expenses and     personnel related expenses resulting from lower headcount. The     quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly due to decreases in personnel     related expenses resulting from lower headcount and lower average     compensation, as well as decreases in project development expenses.   oSelling and marketing expenses for the fourth quarter of 2013 were US$3.9     million, a decrease of 2.0% from the same period in 2012 and an increase     of 11.1% from the third quarter of 2013. The year-over-year decrease was     mainly attributable to a decrease in marketing expenditures. The     quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily due to an increase in     marketing expenditures.   oGeneral and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2013 were     US$2.1 million, a decrease of 4.7% from the same period in 2012 and a     decrease of 10.2% from the third quarter of 2013. The year-over-year     decrease was mainly due to decreases in allowance for doubtful accounts     and consulting fees, which was partially offset by an increase in     personnel related expenses resulting from higher average compensation and     share-based compensation expenses relating to options granted to employees     in 2013. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly due to decreases in     personnel related expenses resulting from lower average compensation and a     decrease in allowance for doubtful accounts.  Income from operations in the fourth quarter of 2013 was US$9.7 million, a 38.8% increase from the same period in 2012 and a 63.2% increase from the third quarter of 2013.  Operating margin, defined as income from operations divided by net revenues, in the fourth quarter of 2013 was 37.3%, compared to 30.1% in the same period in 2012 and 25.6% in the third quarter of 2013.  Interest income  in the fourth quarter of 2013 was US$ 0.6 million, a 41.5% decrease from the same period in 2012 and an 18.7% increase from the third quarter of 2013.  Income tax expenses in the fourth quarter of 2013 were US$1.1 million, a decrease of 76.7% from the same period in 2012 and a decrease of 50.4% from the third quarter of 2013. In the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company's PRC operating subsidiary, Beijing Super TV Co., Ltd., was designated as a "key software enterprise" for the tax years of 2013 and 2014 by the relevant PRC government authorities and, as a result, was entitled to a preferential income tax rate of 10% in each of those years. As the Company accrued income tax expenses at a rate of 15% in the first three quarters of 2013, the accrued income tax expenses were partially reversed in this quarter. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to the preferential income tax adjustment in the fourth quarter of 2013, and a US$1.2 million in tax liabilities that were accrued in relation to certain VAT refunds in the fourth quarter of 2012. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly due to the preferential income tax adjustment in the fourth quarter of 2013, which was partially offset by an increase in taxable income.  Net loss attributable to noncontrolling interest in the fourth quarter of 2013 was US$0.3 million, a decrease of 20.7% from the same period in 2012 and a decrease of 44.8% from the third quarter of 2013. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter decreases were largely due to a decrease in net loss incurred by the Company's majority-owned subsidiaries.  Net income attributable to China Digital TV Holding Co., Ltd. in the fourth quarter of 2013 was US$10.0 million, an increase of 136.6% from the same period in 2012 and an increase of 111.4% from the third quarter of 2013.  Non-GAAP net income attributable to China Digital TV Holding Co., Ltd., defined as net income excluding certain one-time or non-cash expenses, such as share-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets from business acquisitions and equity method investments, in the fourth quarter of 2013 was US$10.4 million, an increase of 136.6% from the same period in 2012 and an increase of 99.3% from the third quarter of 2013.

In the fourth quarter of 2013, cash flow generated from operations was approximately US$9.9 million.  Full Year 2013 Results  Net revenues in 2013 were US$87.2 million, a 1.8% decrease from US$88.7 million in 2012 primarily due to a decrease in revenues from other products, such as surface mounted chips and multimedia home entertainment boxes, which was partially offset by increases in revenues from smart cards sales.  Revenues from smart cards and other products in 2013 were US$82.9 million, a decrease of 2.8% from 2012, mainly due to a decline in the sales of other products, such as surface mounted chips and multimedia home entertainment boxes, which were partially offset by an increase in revenues from sales of smart cards. Revenues from smart cards and other products represented 93.8% of total revenues in 2013.  In 2013, revenues from the Company's top five customers accounted for 20.6% of total revenues, compared to 21.0% in 2012.  Revenues from services were US$5.5 million in 2013, an increase of 12.1% from 2012, primarily due to an increase in head-end system integration. Revenues from services represented 6.2% of total revenues in 2013.  Gross profit was US$65.5 million in 2013, a decrease of 3.5% from US$67.9 million in 2012. Gross margin was 75.1% in 2013, compared to 76.5% in 2012. The decrease in gross margin was primarily due to an increase in cost of revenues, attributable to inventory write-downs with respect to surface mounted chips, video-on-demand and multimedia home entertainment boxes.  In 2013, the ASP of smart cards decreased by 5.8% compared to 2012. In addition, the unit cost of smart cards decreased by 14.5% compared to 2012.  Operating expenses in 2013 were US$44.2 million, an increase of 9.2% from US$40.5 million in 2012.    oResearch and development  expenses in 2013 increased by 10.6% to US$19.3     million from US$17.4 million in 2012, mainly due to an increase in     personnel related expenses resulting from higher headcount of research and     development staff, as well as increases in project development expenses.   oSales and marketing expenses in  2013 increased by 9.9% to US$15.0 million     from US$13.6 million in 2012. The increase was primarily due to an     increase in marketing expenditures.   oGeneral and administrative  expenses in 2013 increased by 5.5% to US$10.0     million from US$9.4 million in 2012. The increase was primarily due to     increases in allowance for doubtful accounts and personnel related     expenses resulting from increased headcount of general and administrative,     which was partially offset by decreases in consulting expenses and     share-based compensation expenses.  Income from operations in 2013  was US$21.3 million, a decrease of 22.3% from 2012.  Operating margin, defined as income from operations divided by net revenues, was 24.5% in 2013, compared to 30.9% in 2012.  Net income attributable to China Digital TV Holding Co., Ltd. in 2013 was US$24.4 million, an increase of 252.4% from US$6.9 million in 2012.  U.S. Federal Income Taxation  Based on the Company's analysis of the value of the Company's assets as of December 31, 2013, the Company was classified as a passive foreign investment company ("PFIC") during 2013 for U.S. federal income tax purposes. In addition, based on analyses of the value of the Company's assets as of the end of earlier years, the Company was a PFIC during the taxable years 2009 through 2012 for U.S. federal income tax purposes. The Company has substantial passive assets in the form of cash and cash equivalents, among others, and can provide no assurance that the Company will not continue to be classified as a PFIC for the taxable year 2014 or future taxable years, as PFIC status is tested each year and depends on the Company's assets and income in such year. U.S. holders of the Company's ADSs during any year in which the Company was treated as a PFIC will be subject to special rules. Further details about the PFIC rules are available in the Company's annual reports on Form 20-F for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2012. U.S. holders of the Company's ADSs should generally be able to make a mark-to-market election under the PFIC rules. U.S. holders of Company's ADSs are advised to consult their own tax advisors regarding the application of the PFIC rules to their particular circumstances, including the consequences of making a mark-to-market election.  Business Outlook  Based on information available as of February 25, 2014, China Digital TV expects smart card shipments for the first quarter of 2014 to be in the range of 3.5 million and 3.8 million.
