Momo Inc. (MOMO) missed market expectations on earnings for the third quarter of 2018 while revenues came in line with estimates. The stock plunged 12.9% during premarket hours on Thursday.
Net revenues grew 51% to $536 million from the same period a year ago. Net income attributable to Momo Inc. grew to $85.2 million from $79.1 million last year. Adjusted net income rose 22% to $114.3 million.

Live video service revenues grew 34% to $406.9 million from last year, helped by increases in quarterly paying users and average revenues per paying user per quarter. Value-added service revenues grew 221% to $84.2 million, mainly due to the growth of the virtual gift business on the Momo application and the consolidation of Tantan’s membership subscription revenues.

Excluding revenues from Phanta City, total revenues are expected to grow 42-46% year-over-year to 3.62 billion yuan to 3.72 billion yuan. The company is not providing the outlook in US dollar terms due to the recent volatility and uncertainty in foreign exchange rate.
