NetEase.com Reports Second Quarter 2011 Unaudited Financial Results

BEIJING, Aug. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- NetEase.com, 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, 2011.

William Ding, Chief Executive Officer and Director of NetEase, stated, "For the second quarter of 2011, we delivered strong quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year growth across our online games and advertising services. Second quarter online games revenue increased 13.9% quarter-over-quarter driven by our newly launched self-developed game, Ghost, as well as continued demand for Fantasy Westward Journey and World of Warcraft®, a game licensed from Blizzard Entertainment. Online games revenue increased by 33.6% year-over-year, mainly as a result of the growth in our self-developed games, including Fantasy Westward Journey, Ghost, Westward Journey Online II, Tianxia II and Heroes of Tang Dynasty, along with continued revenue growth from World of Warcraft."

"We are extremely pleased to announce that for the second quarter of 2011, we achieved new record revenue and PCUs for Westward Journey Online II, driven by the release of our latest expansion pack, which contains new features, including expanded content and scenarios as well as the return of eight principal characters with fresh appearances. In the second quarter and during July, we also made several key additions to our robust portfolio of online games. For example, in April we introduced StarCraft® II, a game licensed from Blizzard Entertainment, to the Chinese market, and beginning in late July and continuing in August, a series of promotional campaigns is being held to broaden the player base for the game. In July, we launched the highly anticipated World of Warcraft: Cataclysm™, the third expansion set for Blizzard Entertainment's award-winning MMORPG. In addition, we initiated unlimited closed beta testing of our self-developed game, Ghost, in April. Its user statistics performance has been outstanding, with users praising its quality. We also successfully launched open beta testing in June for Heroes of Tang Dynasty and are pleased with the revenue and user statistics it has generated so far."

"During the second half of the year, we expect to launch expansion packs for Fantasy Westward Journey, Westward Journey Online III, and Legend of Westward Journey, which we are renaming, 'Warsong of Westward Journey.' In addition, we are preparing to release a comprehensive upgrade of Tianxia II and will continue to enhance the content of Ghost prior to the full-scale closed beta testing planned to commence in the second half of this year."

Mr. Ding continued, "Advertising services revenue rose 33.8% quarter-over-quarter due to a seasonal increase in advertising spending in the second quarter. We also believe that advertisers increasingly appreciate NetEase's content innovation, service integration, new product development and our portal's high and growing appeal to users. Revenue for the advertising segment increased by 16.2% year-over-year with growing demand for advertising services from Internet services, food and beverage products and financial services sectors."

"Our mailbox services and micro-blogging products are gaining broad acceptance and traction among the rapidly growing mobile Internet market in China. Our registered e-mail users reached approximately 410 million as of June 30, 2011, an increase of 13.9% since the end of the first quarter. Growing this strategic portion of our business has been among our top initiatives. During the second quarter, we invested in significant upgrades to our mailbox infrastructure and engaged in promotional activities, including advertising on a high profile television show and collaborating with major mobile phone manufacturers to preinstall our e-mail services on their mobile devices."

"Our micro-blogging services also continue to mature as evidenced by the number of registered micro-blogging users, which grew to approximately 52.5 million as of June 30, 2011, an increase of 32.9% quarter-over-quarter. During the second quarter, we launched two new micro-blogging products, 'micro-debate' and 'micro-event', as well as upgraded our 'micro-blogging life' home page to provide more valuable content to our users. We also hosted the first Micro Movie Festival in China. As our mobile business evolves, we plan to leverage this growing user base to further expand our market share, grow our portfolio of industry leading online games and increase our advertising services revenue," concluded Mr. Ding.

Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results

Revenues

Total revenues for the second quarter of 2011 were RMB1.8 billion (US$275.1 million), compared to RMB1.5 billion and RMB1.3 billion for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2010, respectively.

Revenues from online games were RMB1.6 billion (US$244.1 million) for the second quarter of 2011, compared to RMB1.4 billion and RMB1.2 billion for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2010, respectively.

Revenues from advertising services were RMB169.6 million (US$26.2 million) for the second quarter of 2011, compared to RMB126.8 million and RMB145.9 million for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2010, respectively.

Revenues from wireless value-added services and others ("WVAS and others") were RMB30.7 million (US$4.7 million) for the second quarter of 2011, compared to RMB25.7 million and RMB19.9 million for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2010, respectively.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2011 was RMB1.2 billion (US$178.4 million), compared to RMB985.0 million and RMB870.9 million for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2010, respectively. The quarter-over-quarter increase in gross profit was primarily attributable to the increase in game revenues from the Company's self-developed games, Ghost and Fantasy Westward Journey, and World of Warcraft, a game licensed from Blizzard Entertainment, as well as increased advertising service revenue, partially offset by increased cost of revenues. Revenue from Ghost grew steadily during its unlimited closed beta testing in the second quarter of 2011. The quarter-over-quarter increase in advertising services revenue was primarily attributable to seasonality and increasing appeal of the Company's portal to users and advertisers. Increased cost of revenues was primarily due to increased royalties and consultancy fees related to the operation of Blizzard Entertainment's StarCraft II and World of Warcraft, increased headcount-related costs, and increased staff bonuses during the second quarter of 2011.

The year-over-year increase in gross profit was primarily attributable to increased revenues from both the online games and advertising businesses, partially offset by increased cost of revenues related mainly to the online games business. The year-over-year increase in online games revenue was primarily driven by increased revenues from the Company's self-developed games as well as increased revenue from World of Warcraft. Revenues from self-developed games increased primarily as a result of various expansion packs and promotional activities in the second quarter of 2011, as well as the unlimited closed beta testing of Ghost starting in April 2011. The year-over-year increase in revenue from World of Warcraft was mainly due to the release of Blizzard Entertainment's Wrath of the Lich King™ expansion pack in August 2010. The year-over-year increase in cost of revenues for the online games business was mainly due to increased royalties and consultancy fees related to World of Warcraft and StarCraft II operations and increased staff-related costs, resulting from increased headcount in 2011.

The year-over-year increase in advertising services revenue was primarily due to continued rising demand for advertising services, primarily from Internet services, food and beverage products and financial services sectors.

Gross Profit (Loss) Margin

Gross profit margin for the online games business for the second quarter of 2011 was 70.2%, compared to 70.0% and 71.0% for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2010, respectively.

Gross profit margin for the advertising business for the second quarter of 2011 was 43.9%, compared to 33.4% and 43.3% for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2010, respectively. The quarter-over-quarter increase in gross profit margin was mainly due to economies of scale as advertising revenue increased in the second quarter without a corresponding increase in advertising related costs. Gross loss margin for the WVAS and others business for the second quarter of 2011 was 7.8%, compared to gross loss margin of 21.6% and 40.2% for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2010, respectively. The improved gross loss margin for WVAS and others business in the second quarter of 2011 was mainly due to increased revenues from the e-commence business and mailbox services.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2011 were RMB365.8 million (US$56.6 million), compared to RMB292.0 million and RMB261.3 million for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2010, respectively. The quarter-over-quarter increase in operating expenses was primarily due to increased selling and marketing expenses, mainly resulting from increased marketing promotional activities for Heroes of Tang Dynasty and Ghost. This increase was partially offset by decreased general and administrative expenses, mainly resulting from the reversal of share-based compensation costs and accrued bonuses relating to the resignation of a senior executive and certain staff in the second quarter of 2011. The year-over-year increase in operating expenses was primarily due to increased selling and marketing expenses related to the increased promotional activities as mentioned above, and increased staff-related costs, resulting primarily from increased headcount in the research and development areas. In addition, share-based compensation costs decreased by RMB13.7 million year-over-year, resulting mainly from the reversal of share-based compensation costs, as referenced above.

Net Profit

Net profit for the second quarter of 2011 totaled RMB772.5 million (US$119.5 million), compared to RMB737.4 million and RMB485.7 million for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2010, respectively. During the second quarter of 2011, the Company reported a net foreign exchange loss of RMB3.0 million (US$0.5 million), compared to a net foreign exchange gain of RMB25.3 million and a net foreign exchange loss of RMB67.8 million for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2010, respectively.

The quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year foreign exchange gains/losses were mainly due to the translation gains/losses arising from the Company's Euro-denominated bank deposit balances as of June 30, 2011 as the exchange rate of the Euro against the RMB fluctuated over the periods. NetEase reported basic and diluted earnings per American depositary share ("ADS") of US$0.92 and US$0.91, respectively, for the second quarter of 2011. The Company reported basic and diluted earnings per ADS of US$0.88 and US$0.87, respectively, for the preceding quarter and basic and diluted earnings per ADS of US$0.58 each for the second quarter of 2010.

Income Taxes

The Company recorded a net income tax charge of RMB92.4 million (US$14.3 million) for the second quarter of 2011, compared to RMB37.2 million and RMB75.5 million for the preceding quarter and for the second quarter of 2010, respectively. The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2011 was 10.9%, compared to 4.8% for the preceding quarter and 13.4% for the second quarter of 2010.

The Company's various principal subsidiaries enjoyed the preferential enterprise income tax rate of 15% as High and New Technology Enterprises from 2008 to 2010. These subsidiaries are currently in the process of applying to renew the High and New Technology Enterprises qualification and expect to be able to retain this qualification for 2011 to 2013 as the qualification criteria remain unchanged. The quarter-over-quarter increase in effective tax rate was mainly due to the recognition of a tax benefit of approximately RMB47.1 million related to fiscal year 2010 upon two of the Company's subsidiaries receiving Key Software Enterprises status during the first quarter of 2011. The year-over-year decrease in effective tax rate was mainly due to the fact that one of the Company's other subsidiaries was recognized as a Software Enterprise in the fourth quarter of 2010 resulting in tax-exempt status for 2010 and 2011.

Other Information

As of June 30, 2011, the Company's total cash and time deposit balance was RMB11.1 billion (US$1.7 billion), compared to RMB9.5 billion, as of December 31, 2010. Total held-to-maturity investments balance was RMB168.9 million (US$26.1 million) as of June 30, 2011(there were no such investments as of December 31, 2010). Cash flow generated from operating activities was RMB995.0 million (US$153.9 million) for the second quarter of 2011, compared to RMB969.3 million and RMB744.3 million for the preceding quarter and the second quarter of 2010, respectively.

In the second quarter of 2011, share-based compensation cost of RMB9.4 million which had been previously recorded was reversed due to the resignation of certain staff and members of management in that quarter.

Note 3:  In the fourth quarter of 2010, management of the Company decided to allocate facility costs comprising of office and staff quarter rentals and management fees, building amortization and miscellaneous utility costs previously recorded under general and administration to the respective functions based on headcount under cost of revenue, selling and marketing, research and development and general and administration. The change was implemented to better reflect staff-related operating cost. Reclassifications have been made to cost of revenue and operating expense amounts in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and segment information for the relevant prior period in order to conform to the current period's presentation. There is no change to the condensed consolidated balance sheets and the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows.
