Company Report

Cloud Music Is Set for Long-Term Subscriber Growth and Margin Improvement

Cloud Music is the second largest music streaming platform in China, with over 180 million monthly active users, about one third that of Tencent Music Entertainment’s, or Tencent Music. As exclusive licensing practices have been prohibited by China’s antitrust laws, we believe Cloud Music should now grow its content through direct licensing from music labels at costs lower than sublicensing from Tencent Music. This could allow it to grow subscribers rapidly and gain market share in the music streaming industry.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Termination of exclusive deals with music labels by Tencent Music would present opportunities for Cloud Music to bridge the gap in music content and post robust top-line growth.

Bears

Increasing content cost, marketing and R&D expenses would keep Cloud Music in a loss-making state over the next few years.
