Perfect World Q3 2014 Finances


Perfect World International has released their third quarter finances for 2014, and the results are bound to be interesting. For the quarter, the developer/publisher reported a 5% increase in revenue to $158.7 million USD, although gross profit decreased slightly from the same time last quarter, and the company posted an operating loss of $3.8 million. Mr. Robert Xiao, Perfect World CEO, attributed revenue growth to the strong performance of DOTA2 which the company publishes in China, as well as Forsaken World and CrossGate Mobile. The blame for the quarterly losses, however, is being pointed at the U.S subsidiary.

In view of U.S. subsidiary’s recent performance and near-term business outlook that are below our expectations, we recognized acquisition-related impairments in this quarter. However, we are still confident in the long-term prospects of our U.S. subsidiary given its strong R&D and operational capabilities as well as promising pipeline.

Xiao expressed hope in the US subsidiary’s long term prospects, noting its “promising pipeline” as well as strong R&D and operational capabilities.
