Alibaba Group Holding Limited (BABA) Q4 2019 Earnings Call Transcript

BABA

We enjoyed exceptional revenue growth in our core commerce business while successfully expanding our product and service offerings from physical goods to local consumer services and to digital entertainment contents. On new retail, our self-owned and -operated fresh goods and grocery retail chain Hema continued to achieve robust same-store sales growth, expand footprint, optimize stores, and introduce new initiatives to improve customer experiences. As of March 31st, 2019, we had 135 self-operated Hema stores in China, primarily located in Tier 1 and 2 cities. We're seeing significant traction and diversification of customers and revenue, and in fiscal 2019, Alibaba Cloud served over half of the listed companies in China. I also said that we do not have a plan to extend the monetization of recommendation fees in the coming fiscal year. So, to translate it, when you see the customer management revenue growth for this quarter, it's very high -- 31% -- versus 26-27% in previous quarters. So, this is partially because we allocated more traffic for the recommendation fees test. For the reason that we're not going to extend that monetization test, it's just similar how we invested in the B2C market share expansion. So, what we're telling people is that if we want to monetize this, we can increase the revenue and extend CMR quickly, but we're targeting for long-term growth.

Alibaba projects 500 billion yuan in annual revenue amid escalation in US-China trade war

BABA

The New York-listed company said its revenue rose 39 per cent to 376.8 billion yuan (US$54.7 billion) for the 12-month period ended March, excluding newly consolidated revenue, according to a company statement. China announced tariffs ranging from 5 to 25 per cent on US$60 billion of US goods to be implemented on June 1, in response to US President Donald Trump’s 25 per cent tariffs on US$200 billion of Chinese imports effective last Friday. The trade war has an inevitable impact on e-commerce operators like Alibaba which operate a global business across dozens of countries, Ben Kwong Man-bun, a Hong Kong-based director at brokerage KGI Asia, said before the results were announced. This article Alibaba projects 500 billion yuan in annual revenue amid escalation in US-China trade war first appeared on South China Morning Post.

Alibaba beats revenue expectations on cloud boost

BABA

Sales excluding revenue from consolidated businesses grew 39 percent year-on-year. While still solid, Alibaba's top-line growth rates have slowed sharply from a few years ago, as have those of its domestic rivals such as JD.com, which last week reported its slowest quarterly revenue growth since it listed in 2014. Shares in Alibaba rose more than 2% to $179.79 in pre-market trading in New York after its fourth-quarter results release. The group has made money primarily by selling advertising and promotional services to third-party merchants that list products on Taobao and Tmall, two of its e-commerce sites, but has also in recent years invested heavily in cloud computing. It is still a relatively small part of Alibaba's overall business, accounting for 8% of group revenue in the fourth quarter. However, the company is now the world's third-largest cloud service provider, after Microsoft Corp and Amazon.com Inc, and the largest in China with a market share of over 40%, according to data from IDC.

Jack Ma to Alibaba employees: Have more kids

BABA

Jack Ma, the founder and chairman of China’s e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA), has drawn controversy for his support on China’s “996” work shift, saying working from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. for six days of the week is a “blessing.” Now besides his devotion to work, the outspoken billionaire wants employees to follow “669” in their personal life. Ma commented on 669 during Alibaba Group Holding’s “wedding” that happens every year on Ali Day, May 10. What is 669? Hundreds of newly married Alibaba employees joined the ceremony at the company’s headquarters in Hangzhou, China, where Ma acts as a wedding officiant and gives a speech. Under pressure from a shrinking labor pool and ageing population, China relaxed the policy in 2016 by allowing couples to have more than one baby. But the easing of the regulation hasn’t delivered immediate results.
