Before we start the presentation, we would like to remind you that it includes forward-looking statements, which are outlined by a number of risks and uncertainties, and may not be realized in future for various reasons. Information about general market conditions is coming from a variety of sources outside of Tencent. This presentation also contains some unaudited non-GAAP financial measures that should be considered in addition to but not as a substitute for most of the Company's financial performance prepared in accordance with IFRS.

Having said that, let me introduce the management team on the call tonight. They are our Chairman and CEO, Pony Ma; President, Martin Lau; Chief Strategy Officer, James Mitchell; and CFO, John Lo.

Pony will kick-off with a short overview of financial (and key performance updates). Martin and James will review our business performance. John will discuss the financials, and then we'll open the floor for questions.

Now, let me turn the call over to Pony.

Our e-Commerce despite the recent price war has held firm.

On the mobile front we are reinforcing our presence at mobile gateways and extending our community leadership from PC to mobile.
