Highlights for the first quarter 2005:
We are pleased to report these first quarter results. Despite seasonal weakness in online advertising due to the Chinese New Year holidays in February, advertising and sponsored search sales performed strongly relative to our expectations. Wireless business has turned the corner with quarterly sequential revenue growth exceeding our expectations, indicating that we have left last years transitional and regulatory issues behind us. As a result, we believe SOHUs first quarter results put us on firm ground for a good business year. I am particularly pleased to note that quarter-on-quarter sponsored search revenue achieved some growth while search traffic doubled, said Charles Zhang, Chairman and CEO of SOHU.

Highlights for fiscal 2004:
Fiscal year 2004 was a year of unprecedented online advertising success while we managed through a difficult operating environment in our wireless business. Our core business of brand advertising and sponsored search, which in the fourth quarter contributed two-thirds of our revenues, is a strong and proven basis from which to re-ignite overall growth for the company. We believe the worst in our wireless business decline is behind us. Management confidence is high as we focus relentlessly on executing our strategy of building a diversified Internet and wireless business for long-term growth in the Chinese market, said Charles Zhang, Chairman and CEO of SOHU.
