DISCUSSION OF RECENTLY ADOPTED ACCOUNTING STANDARD ANDNON-GAAP MEASURES

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU2016-01Financial Instruments-Overall (Subtopic825-10): Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities, which requires that equity investments, except for those accounted for under the equity method or those that result in consolidation of the investee, be measured at fair value, with subsequent changes in fair value recognized in net income.

The accounting standard also includes a transition requirement on presentation that requires the amounts reported in accumulated other comprehensive income for equity securities that exist as of the date of adoption previously classified asavailable-for-sale to be reclassified to retained earnings.

As a result, upon adoption of this new standard, Noah recorded a cumulative effect adjustment from other comprehensive income to retained earnings of RMB251.6 million (US$38.7 million), net of tax, for the unrealized gains related to equity securities previously classified asavailable-for-sale securities. This adjustment had no overall impact on shareholders’ equity; however, since these net unrealized gains are now included within retained earnings, they will not appear as realized gains on Noah’s consolidated income statement when sold.

The future impact to Noah’s consolidated income statement from period to period will vary depending upon the level of volatility in the performance of the securities held in Noah’s equity portfolio and the overall market. ASU2016-01 does not affect the treatment of equity investments accounted for under the equity method or those that result in consolidation of the investee.

In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company’s earnings release containsnon-GAAP financial measures excluding the effects of all forms of share-based compensation and fair value changes of equity investments (unrealized) and adjusting for sale of equity securities, after including any current and deferred income tax expense impact of those adjustments. See “Reconciliation of GAAP toNon-GAAP Results” at the end of this press release.

Thenon-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The financial results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP and reconciliation of GAAP tonon-GAAP results should be carefully evaluated. Thenon-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be prepared differently from and, therefore, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

When evaluating the Company’s operating performance in the periods presented, management reviewed the foregoingnon-GAAP net income attributable to Noah shareholders and per diluted ADS andnon-GAAP net margin attributable to Noah shareholders to supplement U.S. GAAP financial data. As such, the Company’s management believes that the presentation of thenon-GAAP financial measures provides important supplemental information to investors regarding financial and business trends relating to its results of operations in a manner consistent with that used by management.
