NetEase Reports Third Quarter 2012 Unaudited Financial Results

BEIJING, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- 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, 2012.

William Ding, Chief Executive Officer and Director of NetEase, stated, "For the third quarter, total online game revenues were RMB1.7 billion with increased revenue contribution from our self-developed games. We advanced our online game business by introducing new games, launching expansion packs and conducting key promotional activities. Most recently, we launched unlimited beta testing for our newest games, Soul of the Fighter and Kung Fu Master, in September and October, respectively. Both new games have received exceptionally positive reception among gamers in China, and we are delighted with the user feedback thus far. As a result of the promotional activities for our flagship games, Fantasy Westward Journey and its latest expansion pack, and Westward Journey Online II, these games achieved record-high PCU levels in August. We also introduced a new expansion pack for Westward Journey Online III in August, as well as a new 3DX expansion pack for Tianxia III in late September."

"The October 2nd release of the highly anticipated fourth expansion pack of Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft®: Mists of Pandaria in mainland China was another important milestone during this period. With elements that appeal to Chinese culture, Mists of Pandaria has proven to be especially engaging, and we believe that it is being widely embraced by China's gaming community."

"As we enter the remaining months of 2012 and move into 2013, we will focus on introducing new games and expansion packs that will build on the popularity of our existing games, and furthering our strategy of diversifying our portfolio offering. We plan to launch Heroes of Tang Dynasty II, a comprehensive update of Heroes of Tang Dynasty, on November 16, and in the coming months, we plan to introduce two new games, Heroes of Three Kingdoms, our 3D action real-time strategy game, and Dragon Sword, our next generation 3D MMORPG."

"As one of the first and largest Internet companies in China, the popularity of our portal continues to drive our advertising services revenues. During the third quarter, our advertising services revenues grew 10.2% year-over-year and 19.0% quarter-over-quarter with automobile, fast moving consumer goods and financial services as the top performing sectors. Our advertising business benefited from the popularity of our leading mobile news application as well as our broadcast of the London Olympics. The coverage of the latter yielded an unprecedented number of downloads and portal activity that exceeded our results from the Beijing Olympics in 2008."

"Our e-mail services also continued to grow, and as of September 30, 2012, we had approximately 510 million registered e-mail users. The integration of our traditional and mobile Internet services is continually being furthered and enhanced. We have more than 60 million registered mobile e-mail users and 27 million installations for our Mobile News application."

"We are working to achieve healthy growth that furthers our leading position in China's thriving Internet community. Historically, we have developed some of the most long-lasting and popular online games in China, and our large community of loyal users is growing across our business segments. Focusing on premium quality remains our top goal as we further build and diversify our portfolio of online games and enhance our content and value added services for our leading portal and burgeoning mobile Internet businesses. In addition, we have always been committed to creating value for our shareholders. As our revenue continues to grow, generating strong free cash flow from operations, we are happy to announce that our board of directors has approved a special cash dividend of US$1.00 per ADS, along with a US$100 million share repurchase program. We believe that these actions reflect our sound financial position and will enhance our shareholders' return as we work to increase the value of our Company," concluded Mr. Ding.

Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Revenues

Total revenues for the third quarter of 2012 were RMB2.0 billion (US$325.4 million), compared to RMB2.0 billion for both the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2011.

Revenues from online games were RMB1.7 billion (US$276.8 million) for the third quarter of 2012, compared to RMB1.7 billion and RMB1.8 billion for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2011, respectively.

Revenues from advertising services were RMB243.0 million (US$38.7 million) for the third quarter of 2012, compared to RMB204.2 million and RMB220.5 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2011, respectively.

Revenues from e-mail, wireless value-added services and others ("E-mail, WVAS and others") were RMB61.9 million (US$9.9 million) for the third quarter of 2012, compared to RMB51.4 million and RMB31.3 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2011, respectively.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2012 was RMB1.4 billion (US$216.7 million), compared to RMB1.3 billion for both the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2011.

The quarter-over-quarter increase in gross profit was primarily attributable to increased revenues from advertising services and NetEase's self-developed online games, which was partially offset by decreased revenue from Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft. The quarter-over-quarter increase in gross profit from advertising services was primarily attributable to seasonality and our broadcast of the London Olympics. The increase in revenues from self-developed games was mainly attributable to Fantasy Westward Journey and Westward Journey Online II, as well as two new games: Kung Fu Master and Soul of the Fighter. The performances of Tianxia III and Ghost were steady in the third quarter of 2012.

The year-over-year increase in gross profit was primarily attributable to increased revenues from NetEase's self-developed games, partially offset by the decreased revenue from Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft and increased advertising costs, including headcount-related costs and video content costs. The increase in revenues from NetEase's self-developed games was mainly from Fantasy Westward Journey, Ghost, Tianxia III, Westward Journey Online II, as well as Kung Fu Master and Soul of the Fighter.

Gross Profit (Loss) Margin

Gross profit margin for the online game business for the third quarter of 2012 was 74.2%, compared to 73.3% and 71.5% for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2011, respectively. The improvement in gross profit margin was primarily attributable to the increased revenue contribution from NetEase's self-developed games as a percentage of NetEase's total online game revenues.

Gross profit margin for the advertising business for the third quarter of 2012 was 36.2%, compared to 33.0% and 48.4% for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2011, respectively. The quarter-over-quarter increase in gross profit margin was primarily due to economies of scale as advertising revenue increased in the third quarter of 2012. The year-over-year decrease in gross profit margin was primarily due to increased headcount-related costs and content costs incurred for the London Olympics.

Gross profit margin for the E-mail, WVAS and others business for the third quarter of 2012 was 6.0%, compared to gross loss margins of 11.6% and 13.2% for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2011, respectively. The improvement in gross margin was mainly due to increased sales of NetEase's game-related accessories, such as limited edition packages of several online games.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were RMB537.5 million (US$85.5 million), compared to RMB437.7 million and RMB408.2 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2011, respectively. The quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year increases in operating expenses were mainly due to increased selling and marketing promotional activities, higher staff-related costs due to increased headcount and increased investments in the Company's product development pipeline. Major marketing and promotional activities in the third quarter of 2012 included: the summer vacation promotion of Fantasy Westward Journey, the 10th anniversary ceremony of Westward Journey Online II, unlimited beta testing for Soul of the Fighter, and promotions for Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria.  

Net Profit

Net profit for the third quarter of 2012 totaled RMB811.9 million (US$129.2 million), compared to RMB875.3 million and RMB825.8 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2011, respectively.

During the third quarter of 2012, the Company reported a net foreign exchange gain of RMB23.7 million (US$3.8 million), compared to a net foreign exchange loss of RMB36.0 million and RMB65.0 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2011, respectively. The quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year changes in foreign exchange gains or losses were mainly due to the translation gains or losses arising from the Company's Euro-denominated bank deposit balances as of the balance sheet date as the exchange rate of the Euro against the RMB fluctuated over the periods.

NetEase reported basic and diluted earnings per ADS of US$0.98 each for the third quarter of 2012. The Company reported basic and diluted earnings per ADS of US$1.06 each for the preceding quarter and reported basic and diluted earnings per ADS of US$1.01 and US$1.00, respectively, for the third quarter of 2011. Basic and diluted earnings per ADS for the third quarter of 2012 reflect a one-time accrued withholding tax, as described below, which has the effect of reducing such earnings per ADS.

Income Taxes

The Company recorded a net income tax charge of RMB194.8 million (US$31.0 million) for the third quarter of 2012, compared to RMB149.5 million and RMB140.5 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2011, respectively. The effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2012 was 19.9%, compared to 14.8% and 14.7% for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2011, respectively. The increase in net income tax charge 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 anticipation of the declaration of a special cash dividend as described below.

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

Other Information

As of September 30, 2012, the Company's total cash and time deposits balance was RMB14.9 billion (US$2.4 billion), compared to RMB11.9 billion as of December 31, 2011. Cash flow generated from operating activities was RMB670.1 million (US$106.6 million) for the third quarter of 2012, compared to RMB880.9 million and RMB864.9 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2011, respectively.  

Special Cash Dividend

The Company today announced that its board of directors declared a special cash dividend of US$0.04 per ordinary share, which is equivalent to US$1.00 per ADS (each ADS represents 25 ordinary shares). The special cash dividend is payable to shareholders of record as of January 15, 2013 and is expected to be paid on January 18, 2013. The board of directors declared this special cash dividend in order to give value back to shareholders, as the Company's revenues continue to grow, generating strong free cash flow from operations. The total amount of cash distributed is expected to be approximately US$131 million.

Share Repurchase Program

The Company today announced that its board of directors approved a new share repurchase program of up to US$100 million of the Company's outstanding ADSs for a period not to exceed 12 months. Under the terms of the approved program, NetEase may repurchase its issued and outstanding ADSs in open-market transactions on the NASDAQ Global Select Market. The timing and dollar amount of repurchase transactions will be subject to Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") Rule 10b-18 requirements. It is also expected that such repurchases will be effected pursuant to a plan in conformity with SEC Rule 10b5-1. NetEase plans to fund repurchases made under this program from available working capital.

TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Transparent Cloud-computing Consortium (abbreviation: T-Cloud Consortium) will conduct research activities into changes in the computing model as a result of collaboration between "device" and "cloud" and the creation of new value and markets through organic data processing High speed and high quality networks, and dramatic improvements in computer processing capabilities, have greatly changed the nature of applications and made the storing and processing of data on the network commonplace.

Trick question: What did Thomas Edison do for the lightbulb? He didn’t invent it – working light bulbs existed in laboratories for 80 years before Edison arrived. Instead, Edison's team made electric light scalable. They turned a theoretical possibility into a daily, lived reality – for billions of people. Today, we are at the same point for behavior change. Psychologists, economists, and other behavioral researchers have shown that it’s possible to nudge habits, but almost no one has been able to deliver sustainable, reliable behavior change at scale.
