Description of the company
Our business was founded in June 1997, and we began offering search services and free Web-based e-mail starting mid-1997 and early-1998, respectively. In mid-1998, we changed our business model from a software developer to an Internet technology company and commenced developing the NetEase websites. In mid-1999, we established our advertising sales force to sell advertisements on the NetEase websites and also began to offer e-commerce platforms and to provide online shopping mall and other e-commerce services in China. In 2001, we also began focusing on fee-based premium services and online entertainment services, including online games, wireless value-added services, premium e-mail services and other subscription-type services. We launched our two e-commerce platforms, Kaola and Yanxuan in January 2015 and April 2016, respectively.
Our company was incorporated in the Cayman Islands on July 6, 1999, and it operates under the Cayman Islands Companies Law (2016 Revision). Our principal executive offices are located at Building No. 7, West Zone, Zhongguancun Software Park (Phase II), No. 10 Xibeiwang East Road, Haidian District, Beijing, People’s Republic of China 100193. Our telephone number is (86-10) 8255-8163.
Our principal capital expenditures for 2016 consisted mainly of cost incurred for the construction of our new office buildings and warehouses in Beijing, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Zhoushan and Ningbo in China, acquisition of new servers in connection with the operation of our self-developed and licensed games and investment in the expansion and upgrade of our mailbox infrastructure for a total of approximately RMB1,135.5 million (US$163.6 million).

In addition, in connection with the licensing of certain online games by Blizzard to Shanghai EaseNet for operation in the PRC, during the respective terms of the licenses, Shanghai EaseNet as licensee of the games is required to pay royalty fees to Blizzard for the games, have a minimum marketing expenditure commitment, and provide funds for hardware to operate the games. For further details, see Item 4.B. “Business Overview — Our Services — Game Licensing and Joint Venture with Blizzard.” As of December 31, 2016, we had capital expenditure commitments of RMB1,149.2 million (US$165.5 million) for 2017 onwards, which primarily consist of commitments made in connection with the construction of new office buildings and warehouses in Hangzhou, Guangzhou, Zhoushan and Ningbo. Our capital expenditures in 2016 have been, and future capital expenditures are expected to continue to be, funded by operating cash flows and our existing capital resources.
Through our subsidiaries and contracts with our affiliates Guangzhou NetEase, NetEase Advertising, Hanghzou Leihuo, Shanghai EaseNet and certain other affiliated companies and their respective shareholders, we operate a leading interactive online community in China and are a major provider of Chinese language content and services through our online games, Internet media, e-mail, e-commerce and other businesses.
We generate revenues from fees we charge users of our online games, from selling advertisements, and from sales, service or commission fees from e-mail, e-commerce and other services, including revenues from sales of a wide range of products offered on our e-commerce platforms.
Our ability to leverage our Internet media traffic to generate revenues in online gaming, advertising services and e-commerce is a key component of our growth strategy.
Online Games Services
Our online games business focuses on offering massively multi-player online role-playing games (commonly known as “MMORPGs”), and other types of games to the Chinese market.
MMORPGs are played over the Internet or mobile networks in “virtual worlds” that exist on networked game servers to which thousands of players simultaneously connect to interact with each other. We develop and operate MMORPGs that are targeted at or localized to the Chinese market, and we strive to provide the highest quality game playing experience to our users. In addition, starting in August 2008, Blizzard agreed to license certain online games to Shanghai EaseNet for operation in the PRC, as discussed below under “Our Services — Game Licensing and Joint Venture with Blizzard.”
We use two revenue models for PC-client games: an item-based model, in which players can play the basic features of the game for free and can purchase virtual items that enhance their playing experience, and a time-based model, in which players pay for game playing time. A majority of our revenues come from our games that use the item-based model, including our self-developed item-based PC-client MMORPG games, such as Tianxia III, New Ghost (a new version of Ghost II), Revelation, Demon Seals, Kung Fu Master II, Heroes of Tang Dynasty Zero, and an item-based version of New Westward Journey Online II. Games that use the time-based model include self-developed games such as New Westward Journey Online II and Fantasy Westward Journey Online, as well as licensed games such as World of Warcraft. We plan to launch other new games using the item-based revenue model in the future.
To pay for PC-client game playing time or virtual items purchased within a game, players use our proprietary prepaid point system by purchasing physical prepaid point cards or virtual prepaid point cards. We work with a wide range of distributors to distribute our point cards to gamers across China. Physical prepaid point card distribution channels include wholesalers, Internet cafés, software stores, supermarkets, bookstores and newspaper stands, as well as convenience stores mainly in Guangzhou Province, Shanghai, Beijing and in several second tier cities. Virtual prepaid point cards can be purchased online by debit card, credit card or bank transfer using online payment service platforms.
As of December 31, 2016, we also offered over 100 self-developed and licensed mobile games of various genres, such as the Fantasy Westward Journey and Westward Journey Online mobile games and the mobile version of New Ghost, Onmyoji, Invincible and Heroes of Tang Dynasty mobile. We distribute our mobile games by partnering with major Android- and iOS-based app stores in China as well as through our proprietary distribution channels, such as our website and NetEase News App. Mobile game revenues are primarily derived from sales of in-game virtual items, including items, avatars, skills, privileges or other in-game consumables, features or functionalities, within our games. Users have a variety of payment options for our in-game virtual items, including our prepaid cards, online payments through app stores and other online payment channels.
Our Internet Media Business
The NetEase websites provide Internet users with Chinese language online services centered around three core service categories—content, community and communication. Our wide range of content appeals to a broad audience group spanning all age groups. However, our services are particularly popular among younger audiences between the ages of 23 and 35. We are continually working to reinforce our leadership position through premium content and service development and innovation. In particular, China’s Internet sector is quickly transitioning from PC to mobile platforms. We believe there are significant opportunities to explore new revenue streams related to the mobile Internet market. We have been proactively migrating our PC products onto mobile across our different business units.
The NetEase content channels provide news, information and online entertainment to the Chinese public. The websites consolidate and distribute content from more than one hundred international and domestic content providers. Content is distributed through various channels, including channels focusing on news, entertainment, sports, finance, information technology, automobiles, education and real estate.
Community and Communication
The NetEase websites provide a broad array of free and fee-based community and communication services, including photo album, instant messaging, online personal advertisements, open courses (NetEase Open Courses), mobile news applications (NetEase News App), interactive online video (NetEase BoBo) and community forums.
In addition to the services described above, the NetEase websites provide other services to our users, including various search functions, dictionary (Youdao Dictionary) and cloud note-taking application (Youdao Cloudnote).
Our large and growing user base attracts well-known advertisers to our web sites. The various content channels and wide range of online services offered through our Internet media forms an effective medium for our clients to conduct integrated marketing campaigns to the millions of loyal NetEase users. Our online advertising offerings include banner advertising, channel sponsorships, direct e-mail, interactive media-rich sites, sponsored special events, games, contests and other activities. We mainly charge advertisers on a per diem fixed fees basis. We also offer advertising services based on performance-based pricing model, such as based on cost per thousand impressions, which means the number of times an advertisement is displayed, or cost per action by the consumers after viewing our advertisements, including but not limited to clicking on links to our customers’ products. Our standard advertising charges vary depending on the terms of the contract and the advertisement’s location within our website. Discounts from standard rates are typically provided for higher-volume, longer-term advertising contracts, and may be provided for promotional purposes.
