NetEase Reports Third Quarter 2013 Unaudited Financial Results

 

(Beijing — November 13, 2013) — NetEase, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTES), one of China’s leading Internet and online game services providers, today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

 

“We continue to broaden the platforms for our traditional and mobile Internet product and service offerings,” said Mr. William Ding, Chief Executive Officer and Director of NetEase. “During the third quarter we completed key upgrades for two of our most popular games, increased our investment in the mobile Internet business and entered the mobile instant messaging space with the launch of YiChat. These critical advancements support our growth objectives, and for the third quarter we increased our revenues by 23.0% year-over-year, with revenues from our online games and advertising services increasing by 21.0% and 22.9%, respectively.”

 

“Our self-developed traditional and mobile game offerings are resonating well with our audiences. During the third quarter, one of our most popular games, Fantasy Westward Journey II, delivered an excellent performance following the early July launch of its comprehensive upgrade, along with the game’s accompanying pocket mobile version. This pocket mobile version has extended the reach of our game from the PC to mobile platforms, and user feedback continues to be favorable. In addition, the exciting new version we launched for Westward Journey Online II in September -now known as New Westward Journey Online II- was a significant upgrade for this classic game, which is stimulating players’ enthusiasm and demonstrating positive user trends.”

 

“Our newer games are also performing in-line with our expectations. The expansion pack launched in June for Heroes of Tang Dynasty II was well received by players and contributed to our revenue growth for the period.  For our other game titles, we expect heightened interest in the coming periods as we introduced new expansion packs for Ghost II and Kung Fu Master in September and October, respectively, and have expansion packs planned in the fourth quarter for Heroes of Tang Dynasty II, Tianxia III and Legend of Fairy. Our development schedule is also progressing smoothly. User feedback has been encouraging following our initial commercial launch of Heroes of Three Kingdoms in April and Dragon Sword in August. Large-scale promotional activities were launched for those two games in September and November, respectively, and earlier this month, we commercially launched Legend of Tibet, a 2.5D MMORPG. Before the end of year, we also expect to introduce

several high quality mobile games. For 2014, we currently plan to release our first person shooter game, Crisis 2015, in the first half of 2014 and we are preparing to introduce another new game: Revelation, a 3-D epic fantasy MMORPG that we have been developing for the past three years. Revelation features exceptional computer-generated graphic effects using cutting-edge technology and integrates traditional MMO styles with enhanced action elements to provide young players with cool and fast-paced fighting experiences.”

 

“The upcoming open beta test in mainland China of Blizzard Entertainment’s highly anticipated Hearthstone™: Heroes of Warcraft™ will become another important milestone. This new free-to-play online collectible card game featuring legendary heroes, spells and minions from the Warcraft universe, is simple to play yet highly engaging, and we look forward to providing our players with this great gaming experience.”

 

“Turning to our portal, our advertising services revenue increased both sequentially and year-over-year with the largest revenue contributions coming from the automobile, Internet services and fast moving consumer goods sectors. We now have a number of fast growing mobile applications, which provide an important platform for delivery of our value-added services and advertisements. YiChat has been one of our most exciting new additions, and we are extremely pleased to have partnered with China Telecom to launch this instant messaging application. Attracting considerable attention from the Chinese community, downloads for YiChat exceeded 1 million on the first day of its launch in August, and it had reached more than 30 million users by the end of October. YiChat significantly advances our mobile Internet strategy, and we continue to grow our community of loyal users across our robust portals. As of September 30, 2013, we had over 590 million e-mail users and 160 million installations of our leading Mobile News application.”

 

“We see a great opportunity to integrate and expand our traditional online games and services with complementary mobile Internet offerings that broaden our customer base. We will continue to develop our mobile social networking platform and introduce new products and games to support this strategy. As a pioneer in China’s Internet market, we are dedicated to providing our community with competitive products and services that honor our commitment to quality, while simultaneously creating additional value for our shareholder partners,” Mr. Ding concluded.

 

Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

 

Revenues

 

Total revenues for the third quarter of 2013 were RMB2,514.3 million (US$410.8 million), compared to RMB2,413.8 million and RMB2,044.9 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2012, respectively.

 

Revenues from online games were RMB2,105.5 million (US$344.0 million) for the third quarter of 2013, compared to RMB2,066.5 million and RMB1,739.9 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2012, respectively.

 

Revenues from advertising services were RMB298.8 million (US$48.8 million) for the third quarter of 2013, compared to RMB272.2 million and RMB243.0 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2012, respectively.

Revenues from e-mail, wireless value-added services and others (“E-mail, WVAS and others”) were RMB110.1 million (US$18.0 million) for the third quarter of 2013, compared to RMB75.1 million and RMB61.9 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2012, respectively.

 

Sales Taxes

 

Total sales taxes for the third quarter of 2013 were RMB157.7 million (US$25.8 million), compared to RMB149.3 million and RMB42.9 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2012, respectively. The year-over-year increase in sales taxes was mainly due to a change in the tax rules in China, which resulted in the Company’s online game revenues gradually becoming subject to value-added tax instead of business tax since 2013. This change in tax rules did not have a significant impact on gross profit from the Company’s online game services business segment as the increase in value-added tax was substantially offset by a reduction in business taxes on intra-group revenues, which were previously recorded in cost of revenues. As a result, the year-over-year increase in gross profit margin was primarily attributable to lower net revenue due to the increased value-added tax in sales taxes.

 

Gross Profit

 

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2013 was RMB1,746.8 million (US$285.4 million), compared to RMB1,697.6 million and RMB1,361.9 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2012, respectively.

 

The year-over-year increase in gross profit was primarily attributable to increased gross profit from NetEase’s online game and advertising businesses.

 

The year-over-year increase in online game revenues was primarily driven by increased revenues from the Company’s self-developed games, primarily Fantasy Westward Journey II, Kung Fu Master, Heroes of Tang Dynasty II and New Westward Journey Online II, which was partially offset by a decline in revenue from World of Warcraft®, a game licensed from Blizzard Entertainment.

 

The year-over-year increase in advertising services revenues was primarily due to a rise in demand, mainly from sectors such as automobile, Internet services and real estate.

 

The quarter-over-quarter increase in gross profit was primarily attributable to increased gross profit from NetEase’s advertising services due to the reason mentioned above, and increased revenues from the one-off sale of certain game accessories, such as a limited edition pack for NetEase’s New Westward Journey Online II, which is included in the E-mail, WVAS and others business.

 

Gross Profit (Loss) Margin

 

Gross profit margin for the online game business for the third quarter of 2013 was 79.7%, compared to 80.9% and 74.2% for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2012, respectively. The year-over-year increase in gross profit margin was mainly due to the changes in tax rules as mentioned above.

 

Gross profit margin for the advertising business for the third quarter of 2013 was 59.4%, compared to 55.5% and 36.2% for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2012, respectively. The increase in gross profit margin reflects the Company’s ability to effectively scale its advertising business.

 

3



 

Gross profit margin for the E-mail, WVAS and others business for the third quarter of 2013 was 4.1%, compared to gross loss margin of 21.0% and gross profit margin of 6.0% for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2012, respectively. The increase in gross profit margin was mainly due to increased revenue contribution from sales of higher margin game accessories.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2013 were RMB635.2 million (US$103.8 million), compared to RMB626.0 million and RMB537.5 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2012, respectively. The year-over-year increase in operating expenses was mainly due to increased staff related cost resulting from an increase in the number of employees and average compensation, as well as higher research and development investments. The quarter-over-quarter increase in operating expenses was mainly due to increased general and administrative expenses and research and development expenses, which were partially offset by decreased selling and marketing expenditures for licensed games in this quarter.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company recorded a net income tax charge of RMB206.5 million (US$33.7 million) for the third quarter of 2013, compared to RMB131.8 million and RMB194.8 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2012, respectively. The effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2013 was 16.5%, compared to 10.8% and 19.9% for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2012, respectively. The quarter-over-quarter increase in effective tax rate was due to the Company recognizing RMB47.1 million in tax credits related to certain incentives for a deduction in research and development expenses agreed on by tax authorities during the annual tax filing of the Company’s PRC entities in the preceding quarter. The year-over-year decrease in effective tax rate was due to the occurrence of a one-time accrued withholding tax of RMB40.0 million associated with the offshore remittance of cash from China in connection with the declaration of a special cash dividend in the third quarter of 2012.

 

The Company’s various principal subsidiaries renewed their qualifications as High and New Technology Enterprises in 2011, and enjoy the preferential enterprise income tax rate of 15% from 2011 to 2013, subject to annual review by the relevant tax authorities in China.

 

Net Income after tax

 

Net profit for the third quarter of 2013 totaled RMB1.0 billion (US$171.3 million), compared to RMB1.1 billion and RMB811.9 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2012, respectively.

 

During the third quarter of 2013, the Company reported a net foreign exchange gain of RMB5.9 million (US$1.0 million), compared to RMB5.6 million and RMB23.7 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2012, respectively. The quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year changes in foreign exchange gains were mainly due to the unrealized exchange gains arising from the Company’s foreign currency denominated bank deposit and short-term loan balances as of September 30, 2013 as the exchange rate of the U.S. dollar against the RMB fluctuated over the periods.

 

NetEase reported basic and diluted earnings per ADS of US$1.32 and US$1.31, respectively, for the third quarter of 2013. The Company reported basic and diluted earnings per ADS of US$1.38 and US$1.37,

 

4



 

respectively, for the preceding quarter, and reported basic and diluted earnings per ADS of US$1.01 each for the third quarter of 2012.

 

Other Information

 

As of September 30, 2013, the Company’s total cash and time deposits balance was RMB17.2 billion (US$2.8 billion), compared to RMB15.2 billion as of December 31, 2012. Cash flow generated from operating activities was RMB1.0 billion (US$165.9 million) for the third quarter of 2013, compared to RMB1.0 billion and RMB670.1 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2012, respectively.

 

Share Repurchase Program

 

In November 2012, the Company announced that its board of directors approved a new share repurchase program of up to US$100.0 million. As of September 30, 2013, the Company had cumulatively purchased approximately 2.02 million ADSs in open market purchases under this program for a total consideration of approximately US$83.0 million. The share repurchase program will expire on November 20, 2013.
