IPO Watch

Weibo Corporation Ltd (9898 HK): Uncertainty amidst tech regulations

  • Weibo is a leading social media platform in China for people to create, discover and distribute content. It is one of the top 10 mobile apps and one of the top 3 social media platforms in China in terms of MAUs and DAUs in June 2021, according to the CIC report. Weibo is currently listed on Nasdaq under the ticker WB US and is aiming for a dual-listing on the HKEX.
  • Financials. Revenue declined from US$1.72bn in 2018 to US$1.69bn in 2020, mainly due to the negative impacts from the Covid-19 pandemic. However, in 4Q20, the company’s revenue recovered 10% YoY and further rebounded by 42% in 1Q21 and 48% in 2Q21, as advertising demand gradually recovered. Revenue grew by 39.5% YoY to US$1.64bn for the first three quarters of the year and net profit rose 10% YoY.
  • Valuations. Weibo is currently trading at 37.2x 2020 P/E, above the average of other internet peers. Amidst tightening internet regulation, there could be tangible risks associated with the company’s operations and advertising revenue. Hence, we have a neutral rating on the company.
  • IPO details. IPO opened on 29 Nov and will close on 2 Dec. Results announcement date and dealing of shares will be on 7 Dec and 8 Dec respectively.
