of segment performance.

Our total revenue increased by 126.9% to US$351.9 million in the first
quarter of 2019 from US$155.0 million in the first quarter of 2018. Our
total adjusted revenue increased by 193.8% to US$578.8 million in the
first quarter of 2019 from US$197.0 million in the first quarter of
2018. These increases were mainly driven by the growth in each of the
segments detailed as follows:

  • Digital Entertainment: Revenue increased by 56.7% to US$173.4
    million in the first quarter of 2019 from US$110.7 million in the
    first quarter of 2018. Adjusted revenue increased by 169.3% to
    US$393.3 million in the first quarter of 2019 from US$146.0 million in
    the first quarter of 2018. This increase was primarily due to the
    increase of our active user base as well as the deepened paying user
    penetration as we continue to bring new and engaging content to our
    users and enhance the game and monetization features based on a deep
    understanding of local preferences and conditions as well as our
    strong efforts in eSports and community-building.
  • E-commerce and other services: Revenue increased by 302.6% to
    US$130.7 million in the first quarter of 2019 from US$32.5 million in
    the first quarter of 2018. Adjusted revenue increased by 252.2% to
    US$137.6 million in the first quarter of 2019 from US$39.1 million in
    the first quarter of 2018. This increase was primarily driven by the
    growth of our e-commerce marketplace, and development in each of our
    marketplace revenue streams – transaction-based fees, value-added
    services, and advertising. As we deepened our relationships and
    engagement with sellers and buyers, and enhanced our e-commerce
    ecosystem, more users are using our integrated and value-added
    services, as well as ancillary services we provide.
  • Sales of goods: Revenue increased by 300.5% to US$47.8 million
    in the first quarter of 2019 from US$11.9 million in the first quarter
    of 2018. Adjusted revenue increased by 301.3% to US$47.9 million in
    the first quarter of 2019 from US$11.9 million in the first quarter of
    2018. The increase was primarily due to the increase in our product
    offerings.

Cost of Revenue

Our total cost of revenue increased by 113.2% to US$312.4 million in the
first quarter of 2019 from US$146.5 million in the first quarter of 2018.

  • Digital Entertainment: Cost of revenue increased by 33.1% to
    US$84.6 million in the first quarter of 2019 from US$63.6 million in
    the first quarter of 2018. The increase was largely in line with
    revenue growth in our digital entertainment business. Improvement in
    gross profit margins was largely due to higher share from our
    self-developed game.
  • E-commerce and other services: Cost of revenue for our
    e-commerce and other services combined increased by 146.3% to US$174.4
    million in the first quarter of 2019 from US$70.8 million in the first
    quarter of 2018. The increase was primarily due to costs incurred in
    line with the expansion of our e-commerce marketplace, higher bank
    transaction fees driven by GMV growth from our e-commerce business,
    higher costs associated with other ancillary services we provided to
    our e-commerce platform users, as well as higher staff compensation
    and benefit costs.
  • Cost of goods sold: Cost of goods sold increased by 339.4% to
    US$53.4 million in the first quarter of 2019 from US$12.2 million in
    the first quarter of 2018. The increase was largely in line with the
    increase in our product offerings.

Other Operating Income

Our other operating income increased by 373.7% to US$3.5 million in the
first quarter of 2019 from US$0.7 million in the first quarter of 2018.
The increase was primarily due to an increase in sponsorship from
partners who participated in our events and tournaments.

Sales and Marketing Expenses

Our total sales and marketing expenses increased by 17.0% to US$178.0
million in the first quarter of 2019 from US$152.1 million in the first

    by 23.1% to US$20.0 million in the first quarter of 2019 from US$16.2

quarter of 2018 as we continue to improve the efficiency of our
marketing efforts.

  • E-commerce: Sales and marketing expenses increased by 16.3% to
    US$147.9 million in the first quarter of 2019 from US$127.2 million in
    the first quarter of 2018. The increase in marketing efforts was
    aligned with our strategy to fully capture the market growth
    opportunity and was primarily attributable to the ramping up of
    offline and online digital marketing as well as higher staff
    compensation and benefit costs.
    For the Three Months

E-commerce $ $

Sales and marketing expenses as a percentage of GMV decreased to 4.2% in
the first quarter of 2019 from 6.6% in the first quarter of 2018 as we
continue to improve the efficiency of our marketing efforts.

General and Administrative Expenses

Our general and administrative expenses increased by 70.0% to US$75.6
million in the first quarter of 2019 from US$44.5 million in the first
quarter of 2018. This increase was primarily due to the expansion of our
staff force and the increase in office facilities and related expenses.

Research and Development Expenses

Our research and development expenses increased by 166.1% to US$28.5
million in the first quarter of 2019 from US$10.7 million in the first
quarter of 2018, primarily due to the increase in research and
development staff force.

Non-operating Income or Losses, Net

Non-operating income or losses consist of interest income, interest
expense, investment gain (loss), fair value change for the 2017
convertible notes and foreign exchange gain (loss). We recorded a net
non-operating loss of US$442.8 million in the first quarter of 2019,
compared to a net non-operating loss of US$18.2 million in the first
quarter of 2018. This was primarily due to fair value loss of US$436.1
million on the 2017 convertible notes as our share prices during the
quarter significantly exceeded the conversion prices of the 2017
convertible notes.

Income Tax Expense

We had a net income tax expense of US$7.2 million in the first quarter
of 2019 and net income tax credit of US$0.8 million in the first quarter
of 2018. The income tax expense in the first quarter of 2019 was
primarily due to withholding tax and corporate income tax expenses
incurred by our digital entertainment segment, partially offset by
deferred tax assets recognized during the period.

Share of Results of Equity Investees

We had share of loss of equity investees of US$0.4 million in the first
quarter of 2019, compared with US$0.6 million in the first quarter of
2018.

Net Loss

As a result of the foregoing, we had net losses of US$689.6 million and
US$216.2 million in the first quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively.
The higher net losses were primarily due to fair value loss of US$436.1
million recognized in the quarter arising from fair value accounting
treatment for the 2017 convertible notes issued before our IPO.

Net Loss Excluding Share-based Compensation and Changes in Fair
Value of the 2017 Convertible Notes

Net loss excluding share-based compensation and changes in fair value of
the 2017 convertible notes, was US$237.3 million and US$186.7 million in
the first quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared
and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we use the following
non-GAAP financial measures to help evaluate our operating performance:

  • “Adjusted revenue” of our digital entertainment segment represents
    revenue of the digital entertainment segment plus change in digital
    entertainment deferred revenue. This financial measure is used as an
    approximation of cash spent by our users in the applicable period that
    is attributable to our digital entertainment segment. Although other
    companies may present such measures related to gross billings
    differently or not at all, we believe that the adjusted revenue of our
    digital entertainment segment provides useful information to investors
    about the segment’s core operating results, enhancing their
    understanding of our past performance and future prospects.
  • “Adjusted revenue” of our e-commerce segment represents revenue of the
    e-commerce segment (currently consisting of marketplace revenue and
    product revenue) plus certain revenues that were net-off against their
    corresponding sales incentives. This financial measure enables our
    investors to follow trends in our e-commerce monetization capability
    over time and is a useful performance measure.
  • “Adjusted revenue” of our digital financial services segment
    represents revenue of the digital financial services segment plus
    certain revenues that were net-off against their corresponding sales
    incentives.
  • “Total adjusted revenue” represents the sum of the adjusted revenue of
    our digital entertainment segment, the adjusted revenue of our
    e-commerce segment, the adjusted revenue of our digital financial
    services segment, and the revenue of our other services. This
    financial measure enables our investors to follow trends in our
    overall group monetization capability over time and is a useful
    performance measure.
  • “Adjusted EBITDA” for our digital entertainment segment represents
    operating income (loss) before share-based compensation plus (a)
    depreciation and amortization expenses, and (b) the net effect of
    changes in deferred revenue and its related cost for our digital
    entertainment segment. Although other companies may calculate adjusted
    EBITDA differently or not present it at all, we believe that the
    segment adjusted EBITDA helps to identify underlying trends in our
    operating results, enhancing their understanding of the past
    performance and future prospects.
  • “Adjusted EBITDA” for our e-commerce segment, digital financial
    services segment and other services segment represents operating
    income (loss) before share-based compensation plus depreciation and
    amortization expenses. Although other companies may calculate adjusted
    EBITDA differently or not present it at all, we believe that the
    segment adjusted EBITDA helps to identify underlying trends in our
    operating results, enhancing their understanding of the past
    performance and future prospects.

KBRA Assigns Preliminary Ratings to CIM Trust 2019-INV2

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigns preliminary ratings to
thirty-one classes of mortgage pass-through certificates from CIM Trust
2019-INV2, a prime RMBS transaction, the second from Chimera Investment
Corporation and backed exclusively by agency-eligible investment-purpose
mortgage loans.

The CIM Trust 2019-INV2 mortgage pool is composed of 1,438 first-lien
mortgage loans with an aggregate principal balance of $364,220,181 as of
the cut-off date. The underlying collateral consists entirely of
fully-amortizing, fixed-rate mortgages. The pool is characterized by
substantial borrower equity in each mortgaged property, as evidenced by
the WA original LTV of 67.9% and WA original CLTV of 67.9%. The weighted
average original credit score is 770, which is within the prime mortgage
range.

KBRA’s rating approach incorporated loan-level analysis of the mortgage
pool through its Residential Mortgage Default and Loss Model, an
examination of the results from third-party loan file due diligence,
cash flow modeling analysis of the transaction’s payment structure,
reviews of key transaction parties and an assessment of the

CommAgility Introduces New Cellular Reference Platforms to Accelerate Development of Mobile Devices and Base Stations for 4G, 5G and Private Networks

LOUGHBOROUGH, England–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CommAgility,
a Wireless Telecom Group company (NYSE American: WTT),
has announced a new reference platform for LTE UEs (mobile devices),
enhanced its existing LTE eNodeB (base station) reference platform and
released a new graphical LTE Management Tool. The reference platforms
provide an integrated, fully tested solution, combining CommAgility
processing hardware and 3GPP Rel 10 LTE software to deliver a low-cost
starting point that accelerates system development and deployment for
4G/5G researchers, product developers and LTE network engineers. The LTE
Management Tool provides an easy-to-use graphical user interface which
enables straightforward system evaluation, configuration, and
monitoring. With the CommAgility roadmap to 5G solutions, systems built
with these reference platforms have the ability to progress beyond
today’s LTE.


“For customers building LTE solutions, and in particular private and
customized networks, the new platforms and LTE Management Tool will help
reduce time to market and development costs,” said Edward Young, Vice
President and General Manager at CommAgility, “when customers are ready
to move on to deployment, CommAgility can provide fully customized
hardware and software optimized for their particular LTE application and
beyond that to 5G.

Based on the Texas Instruments TCI6638K2K SoC and a Kintex-7 FPGA, the
CA-D8A4-RF4 UE reference platform provides a high-performance LTE UE
with up to 300Mbps download and the four integrated wideband RF
transceiver channels support any frequency between 410MHz and 6GHz.
Highlighting its flexibility is the ability to alternatively function as
an LTE eNodeB with different software and FPGA firmware loads.

The eNodeB platform is based on CommAgility’s CA-K2L-RF2, a
high-performance ARM/DSP-based processing/RF card which includes two
integrated wideband RF transceiver channels. The CA-K2L-RF2 uses the
Texas Instruments TCI6630K2L SoC and AFE7503 integrated RF transceiver.
Variants with integrated TX power amplifiers are available for almost
all LTE bands.

Along with the LTE Management Tool, both reference platforms include
CommAgility’s industry-leading LTE PHY and Stack software provided in
binary format.

CommAgility will be exhibiting at the International
Microwave Symposium
from June 2nd to June 7th in Boston, MA and will
be available to speak in further detail about the new product offerings.

ZOOM annonce le lancement de Elevēo WFM

NASHVILLE, Tennessee et PRAGUE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ZOOM International, leader dans le contrôle de l’expérience client au
travers de l’émotion du client, franchit aujourd’hui une étape majeure
sur le marché de la gestion de l’engagement du personnel avec le
lancement de la plate-forme Elevēo, dont le nouveau WFM de Elevēo. Cette
annonce représente le point culminant de deux initiatives majeures pour
ZOOM International ; le lancement d’un nouveau produit de gestion des
ressources humaines ainsi que de leur première plateforme native en
Cloud “en tant que service”.

Contrairement à d’autres entreprises qui continuent à se développer par
le biais de fusions et d’acquisitions, Elevēo a été créée par ZOOM pour
assurer un flux de travail optimisé et une facilité d’utilisation. Notre
industrie est fragmentée et nous voulions aider nos clients à passer des
feuilles de calcul et des fournisseurs multiples à un seul.

Simplification des prévisions et de la planification

Quiconque travaille dans un centre de service à la clientèle conviendra
que, d’un point de vue administratif, la gestion d’un effectif est
difficile, longue et contre intuitive par nature. Même lorsque l’élément
“chaotique” de l’auto-programmation des agents est supprimé, essayer
d’aligner le personnel (qui peut ou non soutenir l’effort) sur la
meilleure estimation des besoins de couverture, la partie “mathématiques
et sciences” de la programmation peut être décourageante. De plus, dans
la plupart des scénarios, l’effort de planification est souvent une
“tâche supplémentaire” des superviseurs du centre de service plutôt que
leur responsabilité première. Le résultat est pour le moins décourageant
et devient, au pire, un ensemble de tâches vraiment difficiles à
accomplir.

Les produits ZOOM ont la réputation d’être faciles à comprendre et à
maîtriser par leurs clients. En poursuivant la tradition de résoudre les
problèmes complexes des centres d’appels avec des solutions intuitives,
ZOOM a adopté une approche délibérée et ciblée avec Elevēo WFM. “Le
retour d’information constant et massif de nos clients et du marché
commercial est que le paysage WFM continue à mettre au point de plus en
plus de fonctionnalités adaptées au marché des entreprises”. Les alertes
et avertissements ainsi que les algorithmes sont conçus pour répondre
aux besoins des entreprises plutôt qu’à ceux de la grande majorité des
centres de services”, ironise ZOOM Bill Devlin, CTO.

Elevēo WFM est une solution puissante et intuitive, moins axée sur les
fonctionnalités que sur la création d’une expérience utilisateur idéale
avec des résultats positifs. Elevēo WFM vise à réduire le stress et la
complexité auxquels sont confrontés les clients commerciaux et les
moyennes entreprises lorsqu’ils utilisent ou évaluent des solutions WFM
traditionnelles.

Alimenté en mode Cloud natif

Le produit Elevēo WFM n’est que la moitié de l’histoire. Le nouveau
produit de ZOOM s’appuie sur une nouvelle plateforme, conçue à partir
d’une architecture, de processus et de logiciels de Cloud natifs, à la
source même de la solution. ZOOM fournit depuis longtemps des solution
fiables, évolutives et sécurisées pour les modèles de déploiement sur
site et hébergées avec plus de 2000 déploiements dans plus de 90 pays.
Jusqu’à présent, ZOOM n’offrait aucun produit “en tant que service”.
Elevēo est sur le point de changer cela.

Sous le capot, Elevēo est alimenté par des logiciels natifs du Cloud
tels que Kubernetes, Docker, Prometheus, Grafana, Kafka, Helm, Packer,
et bien plus encore. Bill Devlin commente, “nous avons la vision de
créer une base de code unique déployable n’importe où – que vos besoins
vous conduisent à un modèle local, hybride, en Cloud ou comme service,
ZOOM sera présent à chaque étape du processus. Il poursuit : “Les
besoins de nos clients en matière d’infrastructure sont très variés.
Elevēo répond directement à ces besoins. Nous ne menotterons pas les
clients à VMWare, Hyper-V, Azure, AWS, ou à tout autre ensemble
d’infrastructure. Ce que nous allons faire, c’est offrir à nos clients
les mêmes avantages commerciaux qu’une solution de Cloud natif déployée
n’importe où avec une grande évolutivité, fiabilité, élasticité,
sécurité et flexibilité.”

La route vers Elevēo

Pour ses débuts, Elevēo sera disponible sous la forme d’un produit Cloud
basé sur les services et destiné aux clients commerciaux WFM. Dans les
mois qui suivent, l’empreinte de Elevēo évoluera pour incorporer
davantage de fonctionnalités de la suite ZOOM, jusqu’à sa disponibilité
pour un déploiement sur site, hybride ou dans le Cloud. La culture
d’innovation de ZOOM alimente certaines visions audacieuses du CTO Bill
Devlin, “nous visons à avoir une automatisation des flux de travail à
travers notre plateforme WEM qui exploite l’apprentissage machine,
l’intelligence artificielle, l’analyse de la parole et du texte et le
NLP. Nous utilisons ces technologies pour créer des flux de travail en
un seul clic pour la gestion de la qualité et des algorithmes de
prévision personnalisés pour les clients commerciaux utilisant
l’intelligence artificielle et l’apprentissage machine, et nous ne
faisons que commencer”.

Le lancement de Elevēo WFM est prévu pour la fin juillet 2019

A propos d’Elevēo par ZOOM International

Elevēo a été créé pour fournir un logiciel facile à utiliser et axé sur
les résultats. Elevēo ne complique pas ou ne submerge pas les clients
avec des fonctionnalités inutiles qui augmentent le temps consacré aux
tâches, à la formation et aux flux de travail. Nos produits vous aident
à obtenir des résultats. À ce jour, les produits et services primés de
ZOOM ont aidé plus de 2200 clients et partenaires dans le monde entier,
allant des centres de contact de moins de 100 agents à des marques comme
Amerigas, IBM, Homecredit, Finansbank, Tata Sky, Generali, Allianz, et
Vodafone, couvrant 90 pays.

ZOOM a obtenu un score de 86 NPS de la part de nos clients pour les 365
derniers jours (au 1er mai 2019).
