3Q14 revenue increased 40.8% yoy (+3% qoq) to RMB 243Mn. Net
profit surged 143% yoy (+0.9% qoq). Very different pictures from yearly
and quarterly point of views.
GPM, EBIT margin and NPM were down 3.9, 2.8 and 0.7 percentage
points respectively from the second quarter.
Mobile paying users rose. DAU, MAU and the ARPPU of Texas Holdem
and Fight the Landlord achieved stable growth.
Due to slower estimated revenue growth, we lower our valuation with
target price adjusted to HK$ 8.52, and maintain the rating as
“Accumulate”.
Financial Highlights
Boyaa announced 3Q results which revenue increased 40.8% yoy to RMB
243 mn. Both web games and mobile games obtained yearly growth in
revenue of 14.4% and 68% respectively. Gross profit grew 37.4% yoy with
GPM 59.8%. Net profit sharply surged 143% yoy to RMB 76 mn. The
diluted EPS amounted to RMB 10.37cents. Mobile paying users rose from
1.4 millions in 2Q to 1.8 millions. DAU, MAU and the ARPPU of Texas
Holdem and Fight the Landlord achieved stable growth, while the ARPPU
of other mobile games declined to RMB 6.3.
How we view this
It seemed everything alright. But when we looked from the quarterly view, it
just showed a different picture. 3Q revenue only grew 3% compared with
2Q while the operating income actually dropped 4.4% from last quarter. The
qoq revenue growth was declining while the qoq net profit growth dropped
even faster. The margins also decreased from the 2Q. GPM, EBIT margin
and NPM were down 3.9, 2.8 and 0.7 percentage points respectively. In all,
the company missed our estimates in August that was not able to keep the
growing momentum in 2Q, though net profit beat due to lower expenses
and other incomes.

Company Description
Nov-13
Investment Action
We adjusted down the forecasted revenue but expected a slightly higher
net profit in 2014 and 2015 due to the increasing income and profit from
other businesses. However, we believe that the revenue from traditional
card game business is comparatively stable than other web/ mobile game
categories. The company was quite conservative in operation as we
mentioned before, coupled with slower estimated revenue growth, we again
lower our valuation to 15X PE. 2014 forecasted EPS, the business value is
HK$ 7.2. Together with the cash per share of HK$ 1.32, we maintain the
rating as “Accumulate” with target price cut to HK$ 8.52.
