NetEase Reports Second Quarter 2014 Unaudited Financial Results

BEIJING, August 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — NetEase, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTES), one of China’s leading Internet and online game services providers, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

“The advancements we are making across our online and mobile games, advertising services and e-commerce businesses support our dynamic growth,” said Mr. William Ding, Chief Executive Officer and Director of NetEase. “Each of our three business segments grew both sequentially and year-over-year in the second quarter with total revenue increasing by 17.2% sequentially and 22.3% year-over-year. Compared with the second quarter of 2013, revenues from our online games business increased by 13.1%, revenues from advertising services increased by 42.9%, and revenues from our e-mail, e-commerce and others segment increased by 201.5%.”

“As users exercise their preference for enhanced gaming experiences, our online games business is growing at a healthy pace, supported by both self-developed and licensed games. In the second quarter, our flagship game Fantasy Westward Journey II and its mobile version continued to enjoy strong popularity, and Mini Westward Journey, our first mobile card battle game, delivered a standout performance. Following the launch of the iPad version in April, Blizzard Entertainment’s Hearthstone®: Heroes of Warcraft™ (‘Hearthstone’) continued to thrive during the period, and in July we began to roll out Curse of Naxxramas™, the first single-player adventure for this game. We are also working closely with Blizzard Entertainment to bring their free-to-play, online team brawler Heroes of the Storm and their award-winning action role-playing game Diablo® III to audiences in China.”

“The introduction of fresh expansion packs for our popular existing content and the release of new and original online games remain an integral part of our growth strategy. In the second quarter, we launched new expansion packs for our self-developed games Ghost II, Tianxia III, Legend of Fairy and Kung Fu Master. Moreover, we plan to launch expansion packs and updates for Fantasy Westward Journey II, New Westward Journey Online II, New Westward Journey Online III, Tianxia III, Heroes of Tang Dynasty II and Heroes of Three Kingdoms later this year. User feedback from small-group testing for Revelation, our 3-D oriental fantasy MMORPG that is currently under development, has been positive, and second-round testing will be initiated for the game later this month. We are on track to launch Revelation and Crisis 2015, our first-person shooter game, by the end of the year.”

“The popularity of our complementary mobile offerings continues to grow. In addition to Mini Westward Journey, in the second quarter we released two new licensed mobile games, Ninja Must Die 2 and KONAMI World Soccer Collections. In July, we launched NetEase Farm, a farm business mobile game developed in-house, and we plan to continue to release more titles in the coming months in order to further diversify our portfolio and enhance revenue contribution opportunities from mobile platforms.”

“The early integration of our mobile games such as Ninja Must Die 2 into our social messaging platform, YiChat, was well received in the second quarter. We are focusing on our ‘Fresh Social Life’ strategy, which incorporates differentiated and innovative social networking functions into YiChat. Some of our recent additions include Crowd Ask, a community-driven Q&A platform, and Rideshare, a social carpooling service. These advanced, integrated functions are attracting new users to our platform and increasing engagement with existing users. We plan to continue to implement additional key services into YiChat, such as an online payment system that we expect to add later this year.”

“Our advertising services business grew both sequentially and year-over-year with automobile, Internet services and food and beverage as the top performing sectors. In addition to strong industry demand, our advertising services benefited greatly during the quarter from our monetization efforts for our mobile applications and the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Our Mobile News Application was ranked by Internet research firm iResearch as the No. 1 mobile news application used by consumers in China in terms of time spent. Our other mobile applications, online portal and e-mail services also continue to attract new users and expand our reach within our dedicated community. As of June 30, 2014, we had more than 680 million e-mail users and approximately 200 million mobile phone mailbox users. Additionally, in the second quarter, our e-commerce services achieved remarkable revenue growth.”

“In conclusion, we plan to continue to foster our growth both organically and by exploring overseas licensing and expansion opportunities that fuel our traditional online and mobile games and other service offerings,” Mr. Ding concluded.

Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Revenues

Total revenues for the second quarter of 2014 were RMB2,951.9 million (US$475.8 million), compared to RMB2,519.0 million and RMB2,413.8 million for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2013, respectively.

Revenues from online games were RMB2,336.5 million (US$376.6 million) for the second quarter of 2014, compared to RMB2,155.6 million and RMB2,066.5 million for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2013, respectively.

Revenues from advertising services were RMB389.1 million (US$62.7 million) for the second quarter of 2014, compared to RMB244.7 million and RMB272.2 million for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2013, respectively.

Revenues from e-mail, e-commerce and others were RMB226.3 million (US$36.5 million) for the second quarter of 2014, compared to RMB118.6 million and RMB75.1 million for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2013, respectively.

Sales Taxes

Total sales taxes for the second quarter of 2014 were RMB184.4 million (US$29.7 million), compared to RMB153.5 million and RMB149.3 million for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2013, respectively. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases in sales tax were mainly due to the increase in NetEase’s total revenues.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2014 was RMB1,999.7 million (US$322.3 million), compared to RMB1,707.7 million and RMB1,697.6 million for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2013, respectively.

The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increase in online games gross profit was primarily driven by increased revenues from certain self-developed games, such as the PC and the mobile version of Fantasy Westward Journey II, NetEase’s first mobile card battle game, Mini Westward Journey, as well as Blizzard Entertainment’s Hearthstone and its iPad version.

The year-over-year increase in advertising services gross profit was primarily the result of strong demand from the automobile, Internet services and food and beverage sectors and NetEase’s monetization efforts for its mobile applications, as well as NetEase’s partnership with the national football teams of Brazil and Spain to broadcast the 2014 FIFA World Cup on NetEase’s portal and Mobile News Application. The quarter-over-quarter increase in advertising services revenues and gross profit were primarily due to the 2014 FIFA World Cup, as well as seasonality.

The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increase in e-mail, e-commerce and others gross profit was primarily attributable to an increase in revenue from NetEase’s e-commerce business, which was led by e-commerce services related to third-party lottery products.

Gross Profit (Loss) Margin

Gross profit margin for the online games business for the second quarter of 2014 was 77.6%, compared to a gross profit margin of 78.5% and 80.9% for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2013, respectively. The changes in gross profit margin were mainly due to increased revenue contribution from licensed games as a percentage of NetEase’s total online game revenues.

Gross profit margin for the advertising services business for the second quarter of 2014 was 60.9%, compared to a gross profit margin of 47.8% and 55.5% for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2013, respectively. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increase in gross profit margin was mainly due to revenue growth.

Gross profit margin for the e-mail, e-commerce and others business for the second quarter of 2014 was 35.7%, compared to a gross profit margin of 6.7% and a gross loss margin of 21.0% for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2013, respectively. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter improvements in gross profit margin were mainly due to increased revenue from NetEase’s e-commerce services related to third-party lottery and insurance products, which have a relatively higher gross profit margin.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2014 were RMB823.7 million (US$132.8 million), compared to RMB563.6 million and RMB626.0 million for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2013, respectively. The year-over-year increase in operating expenses was mainly due to increased selling and marketing expenses for e-commerce services related to third-party lottery products and advertising services promotions, most of which were related to NetEase’s Mobile News Application and the 2014 FIFA World Cup, as well as staff-related costs resulting from an increase in the number of employees and average compensation. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly due to increased selling and marketing expenses for e-commerce services related to third-party lottery products, advertising services, Ghost II and Mini Westward Journey, as well as higher research and development expenditures.

Income Taxes

The Company recorded a net income tax charge of RMB97.9 million (US$15.8 million) for the second quarter of 2014, compared to RMB179.6 million and RMB131.8 million for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2013, respectively. The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2014 was 7.4%, compared to 13.8% and 10.8% for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2013, respectively. The year-over-year decrease in the effective tax rate was mainly due to the fact that certain subsidiaries of the Company were approved as Key Software Enterprises in the fourth quarter of 2013 and are subject to a preferential tax rate of 10% for 2014. The quarter-over-quarter decrease in the effective tax rate was mainly due to the fact that the Company recognized certain tax credits in the second quarter of 2014 related to annual tax filing benefits, most of which comprised extra tax deductions for research and development expenses approved by the tax authorities.

Net Income After Tax

Net profit for the second quarter of 2014 totaled RMB1.2 billion (US$193.8 million), compared to RMB1.1 billion and RMB1.1 billion for the preceding quarter and for the second quarter of 2013, respectively.

During the second quarter of 2014, the Company had a net foreign exchange loss of RMB20.2 million (US$3.3 million), compared to net foreign exchange gains of RMB7.1 million and RMB5.6 million for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2013, respectively. The quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year changes in foreign exchange gains/(losses) were mainly due to exchange gains/(losses) arising from the Company’s foreign currency-denominated bank deposits and short-term loan balances 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$1.48 each for the second quarter of 2014. The Company reported basic and diluted earnings per ADS of US$1.39 each for the preceding quarter, and basic and diluted earnings per ADS of US$1.36 each for the second quarter of 2013.

Quarterly Dividend

Under the Company’s quarterly dividend policy announced on May 13, 2014, quarterly dividends will be set at an amount equivalent to approximately 25% of the Company’s anticipated net income after tax in each fiscal quarter.

The dividend of US$0.34 per ADS for the first quarter of 2014 amounting to an aggregate of approximately US$44.4 million was paid on June 3, 2014.

The board of directors has approved a dividend of US$0.37 per ADS for the second quarter of 2014, which is expected to be paid on September 5, 2014 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 29, 2014.

The determination to make dividend distributions and the amount of such distributions in any particular quarter will be made at the discretion of the board of directors and will be based upon the Company’s operations and earnings, cash flow, financial condition and other relevant factors.

Other Information

As of June 30, 2014, the Company’s total cash and time deposits balance was RMB19.9 billion (US$3.2 billion), compared to RMB18.6 billion as of December 31, 2013. Cash flow generated from operating activities was RMB1.2 billion (US$186.5 million) for the second quarter of 2014, compared to RMB1.7 billion and RMB1.0 billion for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2013, respectively. In addition, as of June 30, 2014, the Company had a loan from an offshore bank in the principal amount of US$90.0 million that was secured by RMB deposits of the Company in an onshore branch of this bank in the amount of RMB605.1 million, which was recognized as a short term investment.

Share Repurchase Program

In February 2014, the Company 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. As of June 30, 2014, no ADSs had been repurchased under this program.
