We deepened our payment penetration among offline merchants and expanded our range of wealth management products. And we have strengthened our advertising and cloud solutions, enabling us to better serve our enterprise customers and so grow our business scale. Amid the COVID-19 situation, we have worked relentlessly to help individuals and serve society, organizing charitable and voluntary activities, enhancing and making widely available useful technology tools including WeChat Work, Tencent Meeting app, Tencent Medipedia information service, and Tencent Classroom app, as we seek to fulfill our corporate mission of Value for Users, Tech for Good."

4Q2019 Financial Review

Revenues from VAS increased by 20% YoY to RMB52,308 million. Online games revenues rose by 25% YoY to RMB30,286 million. The increase was primarily driven by revenue growth from smart phone games in both domestic and overseas markets, including titles such as Peacekeeper Elite and PUBG Mobile, as well as revenue contribution from Supercell titles, partly offset by lower revenues from PC client games such as DnF. Social networks revenues grew by 13% to RMB22,022 million, mainly reflecting greater contributions from digital content services such as live broadcast and music streaming services.

Revenues from FinTech and Business Services increased by 39% YoY to RMB29,920 million. The increase was primarily due to greater revenue contributions from commercial payment, as well as revenue growth from cloud services as a result of deeper penetration in key verticals.

Revenues from Online Advertising increased by 19% YoY to RMB20,225 million. Social and others advertising revenues increased by 37% to RMB16,274 million, mainly driven by advertising revenue growth from Weixin Moments and our mobile advertising network. Media advertising revenues decreased by 24% to RMB3,951 million. The decrease primarily reflected lower advertising revenues from our media platforms including Tencent Video and Tencent News due to uncertain broadcasting schedules and fewer telecasts of sports events.

Other Key Financial Information for 4Q2019

EBITDA was RMB35,675 million, up 31% YoY. Adjusted EBITDA was RMB38,572 million, up 30% YoY.

Capital expenditure was RMB16,869 million, up 270% YoY.

Free cash flow* was RMB37,896 million, up 27% YoY.

As at December 31, 2019, net debt position totalled RMB15,552 million. Fair value of our stakes in listed investee companies (excluding subsidiaries) totalled RMB419,818 million.

* Starting from the first quarter of 2019, we have reclassified interest paid in cash flow presentation from operating activities to financing activities in order to reflect the nature of business. Comparative figures have been reclassified to conform with the current period presentation.

Strategic Progress and Outlook

Our key strategic priorities include cultivating our leading position in the Consumer Internet, embracing opportunities brought by the Industrial Internet, and energizing our corporate culture. During 2019, we believe we made substantial progress on prominent aspects of our corporate strategy, and we see scope for further development, leading us to continue to evolve our plans as we try to tackle new challenges and seize new opportunities. Reviewing some of our important product areas and business lines:

Communication and Social

Our strategic focus in this business is strengthening connections between users via digital content, online services, and offline services, as well as enhancing connections with enterprises leveraging Mini Programs, Weixin Pay and WeChat Work.

In 2019, we provided Weixin users with convenient access to public services and healthcare content. We enriched content in Mini Programs and news feeds services in video format and enabled users to share short videos via Weishi within Moments. Weixin and WeChat engagement metrics stayed high as their active user base and user time spent increased. Daily messages sent were up 15% year-on-year for the fourth quarter of 2019. We rejuvenated QQ with enhanced chat features and friend recommendation, and we expanded entertainment use cases via Mini Games, increasing QQ's popularity among younger generations. Since the coronavirus outbreak, QQ School-plus-Home groups have served more than 120 million users, with optimised features such as live broadcast, online tutoring programs and online administrative tools for school routines to facilitate online and offline education. To strengthen our connections with enterprises, we facilitated discovery of merchants' Mini Programs and sales conversion by enhancing Weixin in-app search and live broadcast functions. The number of daily transactions generated within Mini Programs more than doubled year-on-year, and their transaction value exceeded RMB800 billion in 2019.

Looking forward, we seek to make our users' everyday life more convenient through our communication products, to develop the full potential of Mini Programs, and to introduce new social experiences enabled by technology innovations.

Online Games

In our online games business, our strategic focus was on enhancing our internal R&D capability and external partnerships, and expanding our overseas business.

During 2019, we extended our China leadership and made notable progress in our overseas business, largely due to the success of our games PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty Mobile, as well as the new mode Teamfight Tactics within League of Legends. Our international games revenues more than doubled year-on-year, constituting 23% of our online games revenue in the fourth quarter of 2019. As of the end of 2019, five out of the top ten most-popular smart phone games by DAU internationally were developed by us. In addition to establishing our original IP franchises, we developed external partnerships via a number of new investments in best-in-genre studios. Key studios such as Timi and Lightspeed & Quantum under Tencent, as well as Riot Games and Supercell, have enhanced their R&D capability, and each have several promising games in its pipeline. We believe our studios are industry leaders on PC and smart phone games, and in genres such as multi-player battle arena and tactical tournament, but still have room to enhance our capabilities in other genres such as role-playing games. Leveraging our flagship games franchises, we strengthened our eSports global leadership with League of Legend's World Championship and Honour of Kings' KPL, which were the most watched events for PC and smart phone games, respectively.

Looking forward, we will seek to extend our domestic game industry leadership, reinforce our international efforts, and provide high quality new games globally.

Digital Content

In digital content, we focus on investing in digital content and growing our subscription business, and extending our franchise in long form video to short form video.

In 2019, our fee-based VAS subscriptions increased 12% year-on-year to 180 million. We experienced slower subscriber and revenue growth for our video subscription service in 2019 than 2018, reflecting delays in broadcasting key content; however our Tencent Video subscriptions reached 106 million, and we remained the clear industry leader in terms of content, users, and financial metrics, reducing our 2019 operating loss to below RMB3 billion, substantially lower than the loss rates of industry peers. We are increasingly skilled at commissioning and creating in-house content, especially in areas such as drama series, anime series, and variety shows. We have extended our owned IP, such as Joy of Life (慶餘年), from online novels into successful TV drama series. We accelerated our music subscriber growth in the second half of 2019, benefitting from the pay-for-streaming model. Our literature subscriber growth was weak for much of 2019 due to competition from free reading services, but we are seeing signs of improvement, as our Weixin Reading app becomes more popular, and as readers differentiate the generally higher quality of paid content.

During 2019, we have aggressively stepped up our investment in the short form video space, given users are spending substantial time watching such videos. As a result of our efforts, our short video app Weishi increased its DAU 80% and daily uploads 70% sequentially in the fourth quarter of 2019. We enhanced our video content recognition technology to enhance user content creation and make smarter content recommendations. We added innovative features such as video red packets to boost social video uploads and leveraged in-house IPs to support content creation by key opinion leaders (KOLs) and multi-channel networks (MCNs). We are in the early stages of what we expect to be a multi-year investment in short form video, but the fact that we overcame a late start in long form video to become the industry's leader, together with our ability to leverage our social network and media properties, and our substantial progress in recent months, gives us confidence in our long term prospects in short form video.

Online Advertising

In advertising, we seek to enhance our user targeting capability to increase ROIs (return on investments) for advertisers.

During the first half of 2019, weak macro-economic conditions and competition for advertising spending negatively impacted our advertising business. However, the unification of our advertising technology and sales teams, enhanced user targeting, as well as simplified inventories and advertiser tools enabled us to re-establish business momentum from the second half of 2019 in our core "social and others" advertising category, which accounted for the large majority of our total advertising revenue in the fourth quarter of 2019. Specifically, we extended the maximum number of ad impressions per user day in Weixin Moments from two to three in early 2019, and successfully tested a fourth impression in late 2019. Leveraging our data and technology, we believe we have taken substantial market share in ad networks, where we have experienced robust revenue growth, and improved operating margin. Our media advertising business was hurt by delays in broadcasting certain drama series and less advertising activities around NBA basketball games.

Looking forward, we believe our competitive position in advertising has notably improved, and, despite industry challenges, we enter 2020 with the right team and technology to enhance advertiser ROIs and increase our advertising market share, while continuing to provide appealing consumer experiences. 

FinTech

In FinTech, we strive to drive payment innovation, add payment use cases, and expand our wealth management portfolio.

During 2019, we strengthened our leadership in mobile payment services through deepening our penetration among offline merchants. In the fourth quarter of 2019, we exceeded 1 billion daily average transactions for our commercial payments, covered over 800 million monthly active users, and worked with over 50 million monthly active merchants. We launched Weixin Pay Scores which enhanced users' purchase propensity and loyalty to merchants through features such as waiving creditworthy users their deposits on some rental use cases. Our wealth management platform, LiCaiTong, increased its aggregate customer assets over 50% year-on-year, while its number of customers more than doubled year-on-year as we expanded into the mass market. Our affiliate WeBank rapidly grew the loan balances of its micro-loan product, WeiLiDai, within Weixin, while maintaining a healthy non-performing loan ratio.

Looking forward, we will seek to extend our payment use cases, provide new FinTech products and services, and enhance the underlying capabilities and stability of our platform. 

Cloud and Business Services

In Cloud and Business Services, we focus on developing customized industry solutions, enabling our enterprise partners to better connect with our users, and assisting a range of industries in digital upgrades.

Our cloud services revenues exceeded RMB17 billion in 2019, as we consistently outgrew the market. Our number of paying customers exceeded 1 million, benefitting from enhanced sales team and deeper partnerships with system integrators. Gross margins improved as we optimized supply chains and expanded business scale. We increased our market share and gained presence in verticals such as Internet services, tourism, municipal services and industrial sectors, leveraging our consumer reach to assist enterprises in their digital upgrades. The COVID-19 pandemic is delaying customers' implementation of cloud-related initiatives and will thus negatively impact our near-term cloud services revenues, but we believe enterprises will be increasingly keen to adopt cloud-based solutions over the longer term, in order to facilitate remote working and remote interactions with their customers.

2020's COVID-19 pandemic highlights the utility of remote working and remote health care services, and we are seeking to play our part in helping people cope with the new challenge. Tencent Meeting exceeded 10 million DAUs within two months since its launch in late December 2019, by far the most-used dedicated video conferencing app in China. We deepened the integration between Weixin and WeChat Work to facilitate customer management and sales conversion, and millions of enterprises used WeChat Work to resume work in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. Over 300 million Weixin users have utilized Tencent Health as an important access to real-time pandemic data, online consultation and AI-powered self-diagnosis services. We provided our medical AI imaging capabilities to assist diagnosis of coronavirus disease. We also offered reliable and professional medical information through Tencent Medipedia, and distributed pandemic-related content via multiple high-traffic platforms, such as Weixin and Tencent News, attracting over 600 million page views. Tencent Health Code becomes the most used ePass for verifying health and travel history during the outbreak. 900 million users across more than 300 cities and counties have used our Health Code since it was available in this February, with a total of 8 billion visits. Looking forward, we will seek to both meet the immediate needs for our products brought about by the pandemic, and develop our capabilities to anticipate and serve enterprises' long term demands as the economy digitizes.

Environmental, Social and Governance ("ESG") Initiatives

We made notable progress on our ESG performance in 2019. We inaugurated an Xplorer Prize to support fundamental science and cutting-edge technology research. WeCounty Platform, our initiative to facilitate digitalization of China's rural areas and poverty alleviation, has connected 15,000 villages in 29 provinces, serving over 2.5 million villagers at the end of 2019. We cooperated with renowned museums worldwide to promote cultural inheritance via museum-specific Mini Programs. We improved the energy consumption efficiency of our data centers. We diversified our board of directors with the inclusion of Professor Ke Yang, who brings her expertise in healthcare and medical research.

As we entered 2020, we faced the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, which has profoundly impacted the global economy. We responded by establishing a RMB1.5 billion emergency fund to offer relief support and by leveraging our cloud resources and technology to support pandemic-related program development and medical research. Our teams have worked relentlessly to upgrade our capabilities and products to update the public with authoritative news and information related to the pandemic, and to provide healthcare services, businesses and educational establishments with access to remote workplace and collaborative tools. We also cooperated with Dr. Zhong Nanshan to fund his coronavirus research and provided our medical AI imaging capabilities to assist developing a quick test for COVID-19. We believe these efforts embody our mission, "Value for Users, Tech for Good".
