Tencent beats expectations

That’s up 11 percent from a year earlier and higher than analysts’ expectations of 146 billion yuan, according to Bloomberg’s compilation.

Operating profit also rose, by 8.7 percent, to 40.4 billion yuan (equivalent to 5.8 billion dollars). Also it was more than expected.

Tencent is a partner in a number of international companies, including several Swedish ones, such as the gaming company Paradox and the streaming company Spotify.

Revenues from the company’s branch for international games rose by 25 percent compared to the previous year.
