04 Billion blue ocean market , Zhou Yahui's “ The Promised Land ”?

Africa is considered “ The world's last blue ocean market with a population of one billion ”, It has become the preferred destination for many domestic Internet enterprises to go to sea .2016 year , Kunlun world wide acquired the market share in Africa at that time 30% Browser Opera.

A research summary on Kunlun world wide released two years ago pointed out that ,“ Here's the problem , The liquidation cycle in Africa is relatively long , So from the perspective of realization , We should not enter India and Southeast Asia , We should enter Europe with a better user liquidity base .”

The liquidation cycle is relatively long , Because Africa ARPU value , That is, the average income of each user is low . Enterprises can rely on the first mover advantage to occupy the highland in this blue sea , But how to make money from it is fundamental . Yes Opera For browsers , How high is the market ceiling ?Opera Joint CEO Song Lin has a saying :“70%~80% Of users don't care about browser brands , Generally, we don't target this kind of people , Our goal is the rest 20%. But even this 20% Users of , Also a 10 The market of 100 million users .” However , The reality is that Opera The market share of browsers is declining , According to the statcounter data display , By 2022 year 4 month ,Opera The market share of browsers in Africa has fallen to 9%, be ranked at Chrome(72.44%)、Safari(9.12%) after .Opera Influence in Africa is being seriously eroded by other competitors .

According to Kunlun wanwei 2021 Annual report ,Opera The global average monthly active users are nearly 3.6 Billion . And according to 2020 Annual report disclosure :Opera The overall monthly active users reached 3.8 Billion . The global average monthly active users of Kunlun world wide fell 2000 ten thousand , Business growth is experiencing a bottleneck period .

Opera Famous for data compression technology , It is more friendly to African users who charge by traffic , As a result, Africa has gradually gained a foothold .2021 Another disclosed in the annual report A letter Interest is ,“ In Latin America and North America 35% And 22% Rapid user growth ”. This shows that the company is still in a period of rapid growth , More importantly, perhaps the growth rate of new users in Africa is slowing down , Need to be filled by other regions .

From the perspective of business model , Browsers essentially rely on search and advertising . From the perspective of future income composition , The search section changes less , Basically around MAU an , The increment will focus on Opera News Advertising revenue from . Another Chinese enterprise that went to Africa pointed out that , The African market is paying 、 Finance 、 music 、 Travel 、 There are no mobile Internet products that occupy an absolute market share in areas such as life services .Opera The performance in terms of content ecology and payment has not yet reached the cashing period , As a result, the stock price remains depressed .


Kunlun world wide “ game + Sea + investment ” How the business should be valued ? We estimate Kunlun world wide by industry average , It may be possible to draw a valuation bottom line .

according to wind Data and Huatai securities Statistics ,A Stock game company 2021 year PE In more 15-30 Times the interval , The latest research reports of many securities companies believe that “ The valuation of the game sector has bottomed out ”. The latest market value of Kunlun world wide is about 174 One hundred million yuan , From the perspective of game business , Net profit of leisure entertainment 8.42 Billion , If pressed 20 times PE, Market capitalization 168.4 Billion .

last year ,Opera Revenue of 2.51 Billion dollars ( about 15.89 RMB 100 million ), The equity proportion of Kunlun wanwei 54.5%, By industry ( Refer to Google 、 Baidu 、 Amazon, etc. )PS The mean for 4 Double counting ,Opera Valuation at least 34 Billion .GameArk Pre Market 2014 year , The net profit of that year reached 3.21 Billion . Its business mainly provides cash flow , If the 10 times PE Calculation , At least 32 Billion . The version number is open 、 Yuancosmos and other business layout are good for the future . Kunlun world wide buy Star X The total transaction consideration is 13.94 RMB 100 million . With PS Valuation method , Industry average 2 times , Kunlun wanwei accounts for 72.9% equity , be Star Group This sector is valued at 28.3 Billion .

The last part is the valuation of investment business , Some people in the industry analyzed this through discount , It is known that the long-term investment account cost of the company's joint venture during the reporting period is 17.94 One hundred million yuan , Other non current financial assets are 58.89 One hundred million yuan , Trading financial assets are 8.33 One hundred million yuan , Then the total of the three is about 85.16 Billion , according to 70% At a discount , Approximate valuation 59.6 Billion .

The sum of the valuations of the above sectors , about 322.3 One hundred million yuan . At present, the total market value of Kunlun world wide is only 170 Million or so , Far below the industry level .

Remove the financial data itself , Perhaps one of the biggest variables affecting the valuation of Kunlun world wide is Zhou Yahui himself . in the past , Zhou Yahui invested in... With his personal assets , Wait until the project matures , Sold at a premium to its own listed company , After cash recovery, continue to invest with this model 、 Cash out . Leisure and entertainment 、Opera and Star Group And so on are injected into listed companies in this form , Now it also includes Opay. No matter how low the company's share price is , Zhou Yahui naturally makes a lot of money . More Than This , from 2015 Went public in 2021 In so far , The company has accumulated net profit attributable to the parent company 110 One hundred million yuan . however , The company's share to shareholders Red chat Better than nothing . This is criticized by the outside world .

Kunlun world wide under Zhou Yahui's operation , The main business sector is promoted at the rhythm of major adjustment almost once a year . Compared with Wang Xing 、 Zhang Yiming and other insiders in Wudaokou entrepreneurship circle , It's hard to get rid of the true colors of investors . The outside world still questions whether he has the ability to make the project from 1 To 100, With his own Opay For example , The project is subject to supervision due to the attribute of small loan 、 Public opinion, etc. bring continuous pressure . But whether time can stand without money this time is also known as “all in”Opera Zhou Yahui's side ?
