China’s Tencent Music beats revenue estimates on paid subscriber growth. On Tuesday, China’s Tencent Music Entertainment (1698. HK) reported revenue that exceeded analysts’ expectations for the third quarter. On its music streaming platform, paid subscribers have been steadily increasing, which has made this possible.

Tencent Music, which comprises platforms such as QQ Music, Kugou Music, Kuwo Music, and WeSing, has won over fans by combining everything from karaoke platforms to live concert streaming services. Some of the platforms that are included in Tencent Music are listed below.

During the third quarter, however, the firm controlled by Tencent Holdings Ltd (0700. HK) declined its total sales, which decreased to 6.57 billion yuan ($900.9 million). According to the statistics provided by LSEG, industry analysts anticipated sales of 6.31 billion yuan.

As Beijing’s crackdown on online gambling continues to shadow the firm’s livestreaming income, the company’s social entertainment services showed a nearly 50% decline in revenue. The company also pulled down features like virtual lucky drawings to comply with the regulations.

A profit of 88 yuan per American depository share (ADS) was anticipated, but the business made 89 yuan per American depository share (ADS), slightly over forecasts.

The number of subscribers who pay for the company’s online music streaming service increased to 103 million during the quarter, up from 85.3 million during the previous year.

The company’s stock investors were entitled to a higher share of the net profit, which increased to 1.71 billion yuan from 1.06 billion yuan the previous year.
