Bilibili likely to report weak Q2 earnings on Aug 26

Bilibili Inc. (NASDAQ: BILI) is set to report its second-quarter earnings results on Monday, August 26 after the market closes. The results of the Chinese video-sharing service will be hurt by channel and marketing expenses related to app and brand, promotional expenses for mobile games, increased headcount, expense related to intangible assets, and research and development expenses.

The company generates revenues primarily by providing its users with valuable content, such as mobile games and live broadcasting, as well as from advertising and other services. Bilibili is expected to introduce new products and services to expand its revenue streams. Also, for generating sustainable revenues, the company could start focusing on developing or implementing existing or new monetization strategies.

In the past, the company has incurred significant losses due to the continued investments in technology, talent, content, and other initiatives. The company’s ability to achieve profitability depends in large part on its ability to manage costs and expenses. It also includes those which are beyond the company’s control including macroeconomic and regulatory environment or competitive dynamics in the industry.
