NetEase Q2 profit jumps 46%, beats estimates

NetEase Inc. (NASDAQ: NTES) reported a 46% jump in earnings for the second quarter of 2019 as gaming and e-commerce segments drove revenues higher. The bottom line exceeded analysts’ expectations while the top line missed consensus estimates.

Net income climbed by 46% to $448.4 million or $3.44 per American Depository Share (ADS). Adjusted earnings were $4.09 per ADS, up 35% from last year. During the latest quarter, the company incurred lesser foreign exchange gain due to unrealized exchange gains and losses arising from its US dollar-denominated bank deposits and short-term loan balances.

Revenues increased by 15% year-over-year to $2.73 billion. Online game services revenue jumped by 14% and e-commerce revenue climbed by 20%. Innovative businesses and other revenues grew by 23.2% while advertising services revenues fell by 8.3%.

Online game services revenues continued to grow steadily with the support of a diversified portfolio and impressive performances from all of the company’s leading titles. Net revenue from mobile games accounted for about 72.2% of revenues from online game services for the second quarter, down from 74.7% a year ago.

For the second quarter, online game services showed an increase in gross profit backed by mobile games such as Life-After, as well as certain PC-client games such as Justice and Fantasy Westward Journey Online. E-commerce gross profit increased driven by sales volume of Kaola and Yanxuan, as well as continuously improved procurement and operation processes.

For the quarter, the advertising services segment experienced a decrease in revenue contribution based on evolving competitive macro-environment, and increased expenses related to staff and content purchases. Despite this, the top performing advertising verticals were real estate, automobile, and internet services sectors.
