Mr. Michael Chen, Chief Executive Officer of iDreamSky, commented, "We are very excited about our first quarter 2015 results, which demonstrate our strong business momentum and our sustainable capabilities in publishing mobile games in the China market. Specifically, we grew our average MAUs by 20.7% year-over-year to 118.6 million and our average MPUs by 52.9% year-over-year to 7.8 million.

Moreover, iDreamSky was the largest independent mobile publishing platform in China with a market share of 28.1% in the first quarter of 2015, according to Analysys International, or Analysys, an independent market research firm.

These impressive results were fueled by our strong understanding of Chinese mobile game players' rapidly evolving spending habits, our continued efforts to optimize payment solutions for mobile game players, as well as our effective approach in marketing and promoting our game products. Going forward, we will remain steadfast in executing our strategies for our games and platforms, and continue to grow our user base and fortify our position as a leading independent mobile game publishing platform in China."

Mr. Jun Zou, Chief Financial Officer of iDreamSky, stated, "Driven by both the strong performance of our existing games and increasingly diversified content offerings and pipeline, we successfully delivered record total revenue of RMB371.9 million. Our increasing average MAUs, increasing paying ratio and higher ARPPU demonstrate our ability to continue attracting new users and monetizing our games. Realizing the need to magnify the success of our strong product portfolio and teams, we increased our investments in R&D during the first quarter to support them with advanced data analytic capabilities and technology. Looking ahead, we remain confident that by continuing to pursue the most valuable categories of games and enhancing the gaming experience of our users, we will continue to expand our market share and deliver sustainable shareholder value."

Operating Review

Users

  • Average MAUs in the first quarter of 2015 were 118.6 million, up 20.7% from 98.3 million in the first quarter of 2014 and up 7.2% from 110.6 million from the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Average DAUs in the first quarter of 2015 were 28.4 million, up 10.1% from 25.8 million in the first quarter of 2014 and up 8.4% from 26.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Total number of downloads and activations was 113.6 million in the first quarter of 2015, up 53.7% from 73.9 million in the first quarter of 2014 and up 4.9% from 108.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2014.

The year-over-year increase in average MAUs and average DAUs for the first quarter of 2015 was primarily due to the continued popularity of existing games as the Company (i) offered new and improved functionalities, gameplay options, and game editions to maintain user interest, (ii) increased cross-promotion activities to enhance user engagement and (iii) ran promotional events to reward user loyalty, all of which contributed to higher user retention on the Company's game platform. The Company's enlarged game portfolio also contributed to user acquisition and retention. As of March 31, 2015, the Company operated 56 games, compared to 38 as of March 31, 2014.

Furthermore, the Company introduced new and enhanced existing platform services, including leaderboards and user tournaments that enable in-game interaction, competition and social networking among users, which help make the Company's mobile game publishing platform more engaging to users.

The sequential increase in average MAUs and average DAUs for the first quarter of 2015 was due to seasonality, as users typically have more time to play games in the first quarter of each year, which has more public holidays and school breaks. In addition, the effects of seasonality are more prominent for the Company's casual games, which are played by more students than mid- and hardcore games are, are affected by seasonality to a greater extent.

In the first quarter of 2015, the Company maintained its leading position as the largest independent mobile game publishing platform in China, with a market share of 28.1% by number of active users, according to Analysys.

Monetization

  • Average MPUs in the first quarter of 2015 were 7.8 million, up 52.9% from 5.1 million in the first quarter of 2014 and up 13.0% from 6.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Paying ratio in the first quarter of 2015 was 6.6%, up from 5.2% in the first quarter of 2014 and 6.2% in the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • ARPPU in the first quarter of 2015 was RMB15.9 (US$2.6), up 40.7% from RMB11.3 in the first quarter of 2014 and remained the same as that in the fourth quarter of 2014.

The year-over-year increases in average MPUs, paying ratio and ARPPU for the quarter were primarily due to the Company's increasingly effective monetization strategies. The Company increased user spending by identifying and implementing new monetization points suitable for mobile users in China, optimizing its virtual goods merchandising strategy through data analysis, and maintaining user engagement through various platform services. The popularity of both the Company's existing and new games was also a major factor for the enhanced monetization.

The sequential increases in average MPUs and paying ratio for the quarter was due to seasonality and the same factor contributing to the year-over-year increase in average MAUs and average DAUs as discussed above. While ARPPU for both casual and mid- and hardcore games increased sequentially, the Company's casual games, which typically have lower ARPPU compared to mid- and hardcore games, grew faster in the first quarter. As a result, the Company's combined ARPPU has remained stable sequentially.

Game Portfolio

As of March 31, 2015, the Company had a diversified portfolio of 29 casual games and 27 mid- and hardcore games, compared with 30 casual games and 27 mid- and hardcore games as of December 31, 2014. During the first quarter of 2015, the Company further diversified its game portfolio by introducing games of different genres.

In the first quarter of 2015, the Company introduced a number of new games, including Running Man(奔跑吧兄弟:跑男来了), an endless running game based on a popular TV variety show in China, and Happy Dance(乐舞), a music and dance mobile game. In the coming quarters, the Company will continue to pursue the most lucrative game categories and publish more high-quality games for our growing base of game players, including Monument Valley(纪念碑谷), a highly acclaimed mobile puzzle game, Yarudorashiru(悠悠世界树), a mythical RPG mobile game, Changing Universe(苍穹变), a game based on a popular online novel, as well as King of Battles(乱斗之王), a fighting game developed by the Street Fighter product team.

Revenues

Total revenues for the first quarter of 2015 were RMB371.9 million (US$60.0 million), representing an increase of 113.6% from RMB174.1 million for the first quarter of 2014 and an increase of 13.2% from RMB328.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2014.

The year-over-year and sequential increases in first quarter total revenues were primarily due to the significant increases in game revenues as a result of the continued popularity of the Company's existing games, its enhanced game portfolio and effective monetization strategies. In addition, the sequential increase was also driven by effects of seasonality, as users typically have more time to play games during the winter holidays and the Chinese New Year holidays, both of which fell within the first quarter in 2015.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues for the first quarter was RMB228.5 million (US$36.9 million), representing an increase of 125.6% from RMB101.3 million for the first quarter of 2014 and an increase of 13.3% from RMB201.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2014.

The increase in cost of revenues as a percentage of total revenues from the same period last year was primarily due to (i) higher content provider costs for the Company's mid- and hardcore games, which had an increased contribution to the Company's total revenues during the quarter and whose revenue are accounted for on a gross basis and (ii) higher accumulated amortization expenses associated with games launched previously.

Gross Profit

As a result, the Company's gross profit in the first quarter of 2015 was RMB143.4 million (US$23.1 million), representing an increase of 96.8% from RMB72.8 million for the first quarter of 2014 and an increase of 13.1% from RMB126.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2014.

The sequential decrease was primarily due to economies of scale of the Company's expanding business.
  • Sales and marketing expenses.

Sales and marketing expenses in the first quarter of 2015 were RMB34.1 million (US$5.5 million), which accounted for 9.2% of total revenues, compared with 7.2% for the first quarter of 2014 and 11.6% for the fourth quarter of 2014. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to increased spending on promotional activities in connection with the introduction of new games in the first quarter of 2015. The sequential decrease was due to the improved effectiveness of the Company's targeted marketing and promotional activities.

  • General and administrative expenses. General and administrative expenses in the first quarter of 2015 were RMB34.5 million (US$5.6 million), which accounted for 9.3% of total revenues, compared with 6.5% for the first quarter of 2014 and 10.9% for the fourth quarter of 2014.

These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially. Factors that might cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to: the Company's ability to effectively acquire, retain and monetize users; the fact that a relatively small number of games continue to account for a substantial majority of the Company's revenue, and declines in popularity of these games could harm its financial results; the Company's ability to extend the life cycle of its existing popular games and to source and launch new popular games in a timely manner; the fact that revenues from new games may not be sufficient to offset declines in revenues in more mature games; market acceptance of new games and enhancements to existing games; the Company's relationship with developers of popular games and its ability to enter into favorable revenue sharing arrangements with the developers; the Company's relationship with China's major mobile game distribution and payment processing platforms; the continued growth of the Company's proprietary distribution channel and the effectiveness of cross-promotion on its platform; intense competition in the mobile game industry; the Company's relatively short operating history; the price of the Company's ADSs and changing market conditions for its ADSs; general economic conditions and their impact on consumer spending, especially leisure spending; acquisition-related risks, including unknown liabilities and integration risks; as well as those risks detailed from time to time under the caption "Risk Factors" and elsewhere in the Company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings and reports, including in the Form 20-F filed by the Company on April 30, 2015.
