DouYu International Holdings Limited Updates its Financial Guidance

·3 min read

WUHAN, China, Oct. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- DouYu International Holdings Limited ("DouYu" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: DOYU), a leading game-centric live streaming platform in China and a pioneer in the eSports value chain, today announced updated financial guidance for the third quarter of 2020.

The Company expects its total net revenue for the third quarter of 2020 to be in the range of RMB2,520 million to RMB2,550 million, representing a year-over-year growth between 35.6% and 37.2%, as compared to its previous guidance in the range of RMB2,640 million to RMB2,680 million. The primary reason for the updated guidance was the fact that the revenues generated from certain major fans events in this period were lower than expected.

Although maintaining a year-over-year growth as compared to the third quarter of 2019, the Company expects its net income in the third quarter of 2020 to decrease significantly from the second quarter of 2020 due to increased revenue sharing fees and content cost. While the increased revenue sharing fees and content cost affected its profitability in the third quarter of 2020, the Company believes it will benefit from such increased spending in the long run.

All these data are preliminary and the Company plans to announce its financial results for the third quarter of 2020 in due course. The Company remains confident in the sector prospect and its business model, operating fundamentals and long-term strategy.
