4Q2020 Financial Review

Revenues from VAS increased by 28% to RMB67.0 billion for the fourth quarter of 2020 on a year-on-year basis. Online games revenues grew by 29% to RMB39.1 billion, among which our international games revenues were RMB9.8 billion, up 43% on a year-on-year basis. The increase primarily reflected revenue contributions from our smart phone games including Peacekeeper Elite, Honour of Kings, PUBG Mobile and recently launched titles such as Moonlight Blade Mobile. Total smart phone games revenues (including smart phone games revenues attributable to our social networks business) were RMB36.7 billion and PC client games revenues were RMB10.2 billion for the fourth quarter of 2020. Social networks revenues increased by 27% to RMB27.9 billion. The increase was mainly driven by revenue growth from digital content services including the consolidation impact of HUYA’s live broadcast services, our music and video subscription services, as well as from in-game virtual item sales.

Revenues from Online Advertising increased by 22% to RMB24.7 billion for the fourth quarter of 2020, as a result of rising demand from advertiser categories such as education, eCommerce platforms and fast-moving-consumer-goods, as well as consolidation of Bitauto’s advertising revenue. Social and others advertising revenues grew by 25% to RMB20.4 billion. The increase primarily reflected more advertiser demand for Weixin Moments inventory, and for customised in-app advertising solutions offered by our mobile advertising network. Media advertising revenues increased by 8% to RMB4.3 billion. The increase was mainly driven by our music streaming apps, as well as contributions from Tencent Video due to airing of popular drama series.

Revenues from FinTech and Business Services increased by 29% to RMB38.5 billion for the fourth quarter of 2020 on a year-on-year basis. The increase was primarily due to revenue growth from commercial payment and wealth management services resulting from increased volume of transactions and value per transaction. Our Business Services revenues experienced robust year-on-year growth as we deepened our market presence in verticals such as municipal services, financial services and Internet services, and as we began to consolidate Bitauto’s Business Services revenue during the fourth quarter of 2020.

Business Review and Outlook

While 2020 was an unprecedentedly challenging year, we believe our solid operational and financial results testify to our focus on user value and technology innovation. Below are some highlights from our key products and business lines:

Communication and Social

Throughout the past decade, Weixin has evolved from an instant messaging app to a service meeting the digital needs of over 1.2 billion users. Each day, more than 120 million users post in Moments, 360 million users read Official Accounts articles and 400 million users access Mini Programs. SMEs and brands increasingly connect with users via Mini Programs and Weixin Pay, and annual transaction volume generated from Mini Programs more than doubled year-on-year in 2020.

Users are increasingly uploading personal videos, and sharing them with friends, in Weixin Moments and chats. They can now share informative videos publicly through our product innovation – Video Accounts. Video Accounts also enable brands and enterprises to broaden their audience reach and drive transactions, especially via links to Mini Programs.

Within QQ, we focused on enhancing interactive experiences in vertical communities. We increased stickiness among young users by enriching communal experiences such as playing AI-powered social games and watching Tencent Video together in video calls. QQ’s video and image feed services, Mini World, increased its user engagement as we added hashtag feature and initiated trending topics that resonate with Generation Z. We launched joint promotions and celebrity eSports events for our popular games such as Honour of Kings and Call of Duty Mobile. We provided interactive learning experiences such as quiz challenges through partnering with educational institutions. 

Looking forward, we will seek to provide lively chat experiences and to facilitate users in sharing content with broader communities. We will enrich interest-based community experiences for young QQ users, while delivering a better social commerce experience within the Weixin ecosystem for consumers, SMEs and brands.

Online Games

We strengthened our global leadership in mobile and PC games via self-developed franchises and IP collaboration with partners and investee companies. Our leadership spans multiple genres, including MOBA, shooter and MMORPG, as well as multiple platforms, including mobile and PC.

Honour of Kings was the top-grossing mobile game worldwide for the second consecutive year and continued as the most popular mobile game in China by MAU. In January 2021, we released the biggest-ever update for Honour of Kings with a new hero, skins and user interface. We upgraded our rendering technology, which enhanced visual effects with minimal performance overhead, enabling more compelling content and game experience in future upgrades.

The launch of Call of Duty Mobile in China drew hardcore players with a fast-paced and competitive first-person-shooting experience, complementing Peacekeeper Elite and CrossFire Mobile within the shooter genre.

The release of Moonlight Blade Mobile demonstrated our capabilities in the MMORPG genre. Aurora Studio extended this IP from PC to mobile while retaining its distinctive oriental style and semi-sandbox open world design. Moonlight Blade Mobile ranked as the top grossing MMORPG on iOS in China during the fourth quarter of 2020.

Our partnership with Nintendo extended our home entertainment offerings to consoles. By the end of 2020, we have distributed over 1 million Switch consoles and published a dozen popular Switch titles in China.

To maintain a healthy gameplay environment for teenagers in China, we made ongoing upgrades to the Healthy Gameplay System, which aims to help parents manage younger users’ in-game play time and spending. During the fourth quarter of 2020, minors aged under 18 accounted for 6.0% of our China online game gross receipts. Among which, minors aged under 16 accounted for 3.2% of our China online game gross receipts.

League of Legends attracted over 45 million peak concurrent viewers for its 2020 World Championship Finals, setting a record viewership for a games eSports event. The rollout of League of Legends’ mobile version, Wild Rift, further expanded its franchise user base.

PUBG Mobile ranked as the most popular mobile game in international markets by MAU for the second consecutive year, according to App Annie. The PUBG Mobile Global Championship became the most viewed eSports tournament of mobile games.

Digital Content

Our fee-based VAS subscriptions grew 22% year-on-year to 219 million. We are the leader in the long form video industry with 123 million video subscriptions, benefitting from the release of popular anime IPs and drama series. We have extended our IP value across literature, anime, games and long form video services to create appealing content and attract paying users. We are also building vibrant short form video communities to encourage interaction between viewers and creators, and to deliver knowledge-based video content. The mini drama series we showed on Weishi gained great popularity, generating billions of video views and social media posts. We sustained music subscription growth with the pay-for-streaming model. At China Literature, we have sought to enrich free and paid content, community features and an IP-centric ecosystem.

Online Advertising

We integrated our advertising platforms, strengthening our own properties as well as mobile advertising network as preferred choices for advertisers.

In Weixin Moments, we enabled performance-oriented advertisers to link their advertisements to Mini Programs, boosting their sales conversion. Our mobile advertising network offered customised in-app advertising solutions, ramping up in-game advertising revenue from third-party game companies and Internet services providers.

Looking forward, we will continue to strengthen our recommendation algorithms and analytic services to increase user acquisition efficiency and sales conversion for advertisers.

FinTech

The strategic focus for our FinTech business is to work closely with regulators and collaborate with industry partners to deliver compliant and inclusive FinTech products, while prioritising risk management over scale.

As consumption rebounded and payment digitalisation accelerated, our payment transaction volume increased healthily year-on-year, driven by more daily active consumers and higher payment frequency in multiple verticals, such as retail, public services and groceries. Our commercial take rates remained stable. For wealth management service, aggregated customer assets grew robustly year-on-year.

Cloud and Other Business Services

We invested in IaaS technology, including our customised "Star Lake" cloud server solutions and self-developed data centre technology "T-block", to enhance our Cloud Services’ performance and cost efficiency. We developed a new generation Star Lake SA3 server powered by the latest generation AMD EPYC processors, enhancing AI, security, storage and network capabilities with better energy efficiency.

In the area of SaaS products, Tencent Meeting has become the largest standalone app for cloud conferencing in China. The recently released enterprise version of Tencent Meeting penetrated the energy, healthcare and education industries. We rolled out new conference room solutions, Tencent Meeting Rooms and Connector, which are compatible with customers’ existing audiovisual equipment and facilitate high-quality interactive communication. WeCom, the enterprise version of Weixin, has become an integral communications tool for remote workplaces, serving over 5.5 million enterprise customers, better connecting them internally and to over 400 million Weixin users.

We will continue to invest in cloud computing infrastructure and technology, leverage our communication and productivity strengths while working with partners to upgrade our PaaS and SaaS solutions.

Environmental, Social and Governance ("ESG") Initiatives

Sustainability is vital to the development of the Company’s strategy and operations, and we strive to integrate social responsibility into our products and services.

Environmental

We recently announced our commitment in moving towards carbon neutrality to help tackle climate change, and are exploring renewable energy solutions for the operation of our office buildings and data centres. We also leverage our expertise in AI, big data, and cloud computing with the mission of helping manage sustainability problems for the planet, such as smart agriculture solutions. TiMi Studios, the developer of Honour of Kings, has recently joined the Playing for the Planet Alliance, a collective effort initiated by the United Nations Environment Programme to decarbonise and integrate environmental activations into games.  

Social

User privacy and data security are top priorities at Tencent. We focus on user experience and adhere to a "privacy by design" approach. We deploy advanced technologies such as data encryption, data masking, de-identification and quantum cryptography, to safeguard users’ data security.

We have upgraded our Balanced Online Entertainment System in China to help parents prevent excessive use of online services by minors.

Tencent Health Code has facilitated domestic travel during the COVID-19 period. We also assisted enterprises to maintain business continuity through Weixin Pay, Mini Programs and other digital solutions.

We have built Tencent Charity Platform into an efficient fundraising platform, while also providing technology for the digitalisation of charitable organisations to engage with supporters. In 2020, our flagship charity event, 99 Giving Day, engaged over 18 million users and 10,000 charities, raising over RMB3 billion within three days. Through Weixin and QQ, we bridge the digital divide for the elderly and the disadvantaged. We support rural vitalisation through our WeCounty initiative, connecting over 16,000 villages and 2.5 million villagers.

Governance

We have established stringent risk management and internal controls to maintain the highest standards in corporate governance. Anti-fraud and whistleblowing policies are also in place in order to identify and prevent fraud and corruption. We believe diversity is key to effective governance and are dedicated to enhancing board diversity in gender, background and expertise.

Looking into the future, with our vision "Value for Users, Tech for Good", we will continue to harness the power of technology in developing innovative products and services, and creating value for all stakeholders.
