Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the third quarter of 2020 were RMB18,658.2 million (US$2,748.1 million), compared to RMB18,184.8 million and RMB14,635.7 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2019, respectively.

Net revenues from online game services were RMB13,862.0 million (US$2,041.7 million) for the third quarter of 2020, compared to RMB13,828.3 million and RMB11,534.8 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2019, respectively. Net revenues from mobile games accounted for approximately 72.7% of net revenues from online games for the third quarter of 2020, compared to 72.3% and 71.0% for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2019, respectively.

Net revenues from Youdao were RMB896.0 million (US$132.0 million) for the third quarter of 2020, compared to RMB623.3 million and RMB345.9 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2019, respectively.

Net revenues from innovative businesses and others were RMB3,900.1 million (US$574.4 million) for the third quarter of 2020, compared to RMB3,733.3 million and RMB2,755.0 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2019, respectively.   

Gross Profit

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2020 was RMB9,885.8 million (US$1,456.0 million), compared to RMB9,792.2 million and RMB7,870.4 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2019, respectively.   

The quarter-over-quarter gross profit in online game services was generally stable. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to increased net revenues from self-developed games such as Fantasy Westward Journey H5, Life-After and Knives Out, as well as certain licensed games.

The quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year increases in Youdao gross profit were primarily attributable to the significant increase in net revenues, improved economies of scale, and faculty compensation structure optimization for its learning services and products. 

The quarter-over-quarter decrease in innovative businesses and others gross profit was primarily due to decreased gross profit from advertising services. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to increased net revenues from NetEase Cloud Music.

Gross Profit Margin

Gross profit margin for online game services for the third quarter of 2020 was 63.6%, compared to 63.8% each for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2019. Gross profit margin for online game services was generally stable, fluctuating within a narrow band based on the revenue mix of mobile and PC games, as well as self-developed and licensed games.

Gross profit margin for Youdao for the third quarter of 2020 was 45.9%, compared to 45.2% and 25.8% for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2019, respectively. The quarter-over-quarter gross profit margin was comparatively stable. The year-over-year increase was primarily attributable to the factors enumerated above.

Gross profit margin for innovative businesses and others for the third quarter of 2020 was 16.8%, compared to 18.5% and 15.2% for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2019, respectively. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was primarily due to decreased gross profit margin from advertising services. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to increased net revenues from NetEase Cloud Music.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2020 were RMB7,015.7 million (US$1,033.3 million), compared to RMB5,622.3 million and RMB4,535.6 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2019, respectively. The quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year increases were mainly due to increased marketing expenditures related to Youdao and online game services, as well as higher staff-related costs and research and development investments.

Other Income

Other income consisted of investment income, interest income, exchange gains/ (losses) and others. The quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year decreases were mainly due to net exchange losses of RMB1,571.3 million (US$231.4 million) recorded in the third quarter of 2020, which were mainly related to net unrealized exchange losses arising from the Company’s U.S. dollar-denominated bank deposits and short-term loan balances as the exchange rate of the U.S. dollar against the RMB fluctuated over the periods. Such unrealized exchange losses were partially offset by increased investment income arising from fair value changes of equity investments with readily determinable fair value.   

Income Taxes

The Company recorded a net income tax charge of RMB342.7 million (US$50.5 million) for the third quarter of 2020, compared to RMB1,064.5 million and RMB88.0 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2019, respectively. The effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2020 was 10.9%, compared to 18.6% and 2.1% for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2019, respectively. The effective tax rate represents certain estimates by the Company as to the tax obligations and benefits applicable to it in each quarter, and the rate for the third quarter of 2020 was affected by certain tax credits received and recognized during the quarter. 

Net Income and Non-GAAP Net Income 

Net income from continuing operations attributable to the Company’s shareholders for the third quarter of 2020 totaled RMB2,998.2 million (US$441.6 million), which includes net exchange losses of RMB1,571.3 million (US$231.4 million), compared to RMB4,537.8 million and RMB4,134.2 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2019, respectively.

Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations attributable to the Company’s shareholders for the third quarter of 2020 totaled RMB3,669.2 million (US$540.4 million), compared to RMB5,226.0 million and RMB4,726.0 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2019, respectively.

NetEase reported basic and diluted net income from continuing operations per ADS of US$0.65 and US$0.64, respectively, for the third quarter of 2020, compared to US$1.03 and US$1.02, respectively, for the preceding quarter, and US$0.94 each for the third quarter of 2019. NetEase reported basic and diluted net income from continuing operations per share of US$0.13 each for the third quarter of 2020, compared to US$0.21 and US$0.20, respectively, for the preceding quarter, and US$0.19 each for the third quarter of 2019.

Non-GAAP basic and diluted net income from continuing operations per share were US$0.16 each for the third quarter of 2020, compared to US$0.24 and US$0.23, respectively, for the preceding quarter and US$0.22 and US$0.21, respectively, for the third quarter of 2019.

Quarterly Dividend

The board of directors has approved a dividend of US$0.1950 per ADS (US$0.0390 per share) for the third quarter of 2020, to holders of ADSs and holders of ordinary shares as of the close of business on December 4, 2020, New York Time and Hong Kong Time, respectively, payable in U.S. dollars.

The payment date is expected to be on December 15, 2020 for holders of ordinary shares and on or around December 18, 2020 for holders of ADSs (assuming the dividend payment is timely received by the ADS depositary).

Starting in the second quarter of 2019, the Company’s policy has been to set quarterly dividends at an amount equivalent to approximately 20%-30% of the Company’s anticipated net income after tax in each fiscal quarter. The determination to make dividend distributions and the amount of such distributions in any particular quarter will be made at the discretion of the board of directors and will be based upon the Company’s operations and earnings, cash flow, financial condition and other relevant factors.

Other Information

As of September 30, 2020, the Company’s total cash and cash equivalents, current and non-current time deposits and short-term investments balance totaled RMB102,650.0 million (US$15,118.7 million), compared to RMB74,406.0 million as of December 31, 2019. Cash flow generated from continuing operating activities was RMB5,401.0 million (US$795.5 million) for the third quarter of 2020, compared to RMB4,772.3 million and RMB3,846.3 million for the preceding quarter and the third quarter of 2019, respectively. 

Share Purchase / Repurchase Program

On November 20, 2019, the Company announced that its board of directors had approved a share purchase program of up to US$20.0 million of Youdao’s outstanding ADSs for a period not to exceed 12 months beginning on November 25, 2019. Under the terms of this program, NetEase may purchase Youdao’s ADSs in open-market transactions on the New York Stock Exchange. As of September 30, 2020, approximately 198,000 ADSs had been purchased under this program for a total cost of US$3.4 million. 

On February 26, 2020, the Company announced that its board of directors had approved a share repurchase program of up to US$1.0 billion of the Company’s outstanding ADSs for a period not to exceed 12 months beginning on March 2, 2020. On May 19, 2020, the Company announced that its board of directors had approved an amendment to such program to increase the total authorized repurchase amount to US$2.0 billion.

The extent to which NetEase repurchases its ADSs or purchases Youdao’s ADSs will depend upon a variety of factors, including market conditions. These programs may be suspended or discontinued at any time.

Forward Looking Statements

This announcement contains statements of a forward-looking nature. These statements are made under the "safe harbor" provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. You can identify these forward-looking statements by terminology such as "will," "expects," "anticipates," "future," "intends," "plans," "believes," "estimates" and similar statements. In addition, statements that are not historical facts, including statements about NetEase’s strategies and business plans, its expectations regarding the growth of its business and its revenue and the quotations from management in this announcement are or contain forward-looking statements. NetEase may also make forward-looking statements in its periodic reports to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), in announcements made on the website of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (the "Hong Kong Stock Exchange"), in press releases and other written materials and in oral statements made by its officers, directors or employees to third parties. The accuracy of these statements may be impacted by a number of business risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected or anticipated, including risks related to: the risk that the online game market will not continue to grow or that NetEase will not be able to maintain its position in that market in China or globally; the risk that COVID-19 or other health risks in China or globally could adversely affect the Company’s operations or financial results; risks associated with NetEase’s business and operating strategies and its ability to implement such strategies; NetEase’s ability to develop and manage its operations and business; competition for, among other things, capital, technology and skilled personnel; potential changes in government regulation that could adversely affect the industry and geographical markets in which NetEase operates; the risk that NetEase may not be able to continuously develop new and creative online services or that NetEase will not be able to set, or follow in a timely manner, trends in the market; competition in NetEase’s existing and potential markets; and the risk that fluctuations in the value of the Renminbi with respect to other currencies could adversely affect NetEase’s business and financial results. Further information regarding these and other risks is included in NetEase’s filings with the SEC and announcements on the website of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. NetEase does not undertake any obligation to update this forward-looking information, except as required under the applicable law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

NetEase considers and uses non-GAAP financial measures, such as non-GAAP net income from continuing operations attributable to the Company’s shareholders and non-GAAP basic and diluted net income from continuing operations per ADS and per share, as supplemental metrics in reviewing and assessing its operating performance and formulating its business plan. The presentation of non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP").

NetEase defines non-GAAP net income from continuing operations attributable to the Company’s shareholders as net income from continuing operations attributable to the Company’s shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations attributable to the Company’s shareholders enables NetEase’s management to assess its operating results without considering the impact of share-based compensation expenses, which are non-cash charges. NetEase believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors in understanding and evaluating the Company’s current operating performance and prospects in the same manner as management does, if they so choose. NetEase also believes that the use of this non-GAAP financial measure facilitates investors’ assessment of its operating performance.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. One of the key limitations of using non-GAAP net income from continuing operations attributable to the Company’s shareholders is that it does not reflect all items of expense/ income that affect our operations. Share-based compensation expenses have been and may continue to be incurred in NetEase’s business and are not reflected in the presentation of non-GAAP net income from continuing operations attributable to the Company’s shareholders. In addition, the non-GAAP financial measures NetEase uses may differ from the non-GAAP measures used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.

NetEase compensates for these limitations by reconciling non-GAAP net income from continuing operations attributable to the Company’s shareholders to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company’s performance. See "Unaudited Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" at the end of this announcement. NetEase encourages you to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
