Fourth Quarter 2013 Highlights

  • Net revenues increased by 129.5% to RMB612.3 million (US$101.1 million) from RMB266.8 million in the corresponding period of 2012, primarily driven by a 144.1% increase in revenues from internet value-added services, or IVAS revenues.

  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to YY Inc. 1 increased by 268.7% to RMB216.9 million (US$35.8 million) from RMB58.8 million in the corresponding period of 2012.

Full Year 2013 Highlights

  • Net revenues increased by 122.4% to RMB1.8 billion (US$301.2 million) in 2013 from RMB820.0 million in 2012, primarily driven by a 136.4% increase in revenues from internet value-added services, or IVAS revenues.
  • Net income attributable to YY Inc. increased by 435.7% to RMB477.7 million (US$78.9 million) in 2013 from RMB89.2 million in 2012.
  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to YY Inc. increased by 213.8% to RMB594.8 million (US$98.3 million) in 2013 from RMB189.5 million in 2012.

Mr. David Xueling Li, Chief Executive Officer of YY, stated, "We're very pleased to end our first full fiscal year as a public company with a solid fourth quarter, building upon the strong momentum we saw throughout 2013. Online music and entertainment 2, in particular, again outperformed our expectations, with revenues growing by 217.1% year over year. Resulting from the powerful real-time interactive and social capabilities of our unique platform, we have seen increasingly diversified and interactive online activities among our expanding base of active users, with our average monthly active users reaching 92.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Through a series of engaging and diversified group entertainment events and activities, such as our 2013 Annual Entertainment Awards Ceremony, we were able to not only stimulate user engagement and spending, but also enhance user attachment to our platform. Heading into 2014, we're excited to build upon the robust foundation we have established and continue to broaden our ability to engage our users and monetize our user traffic by further penetrating into online entertainment, live broadcasting, education and other verticals. We are proud of our evolution into a large, live and sticky online entertainment platform and aim to further enable services which cater to Chinese users' dynamic and ever-changing demands."

Mr. Eric He, Chief Financial Officer of YY, commented, "In the fourth quarter, not only we were able to exceed our expectations on both the top and bottom line growth, but we also further increased our profitability with non-GAAP net margin expanding to 35.4% from 22.0% a year ago. These results were driven by the greater operating leverage of our platform, which has increasingly been able to attract and engage massive audiences in a cost-effective manner through viral online marketing as well as self-promotions by performers and channel owners within our platform. We believe that YY has significant potential to become an even more powerful, pervasive and profitable platform through the ongoing diversification and expansion of our entertainment and education services."
