Jetzt einsteigen meinen Einheimische ! Oder meint Ihr Ihr bekommt chinas Marktführer noch billiger hinterhergeschmissen. MKT. > 2 mrd. U$ überhaupt ein Wunder...
Google macht eine Kapitalerhöhung von 2 Mrd Dollar.... evtl gehen die damit einkaufen, ist keine news sondern nur ein Gedanke...
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 21.003.711 von elfederiQo am 30.03.06 08:59:18Stimmt, könnte sein auf dem Niveau ist BAido ein Schnäppchen - wenn die wirklich Marktführer sind. Mein bekannter aus Shanghai sagt, die Chinesen benutzen Baidu so wie wir Google und Yahoo...ist also ein Wunder, dass die überhaupt solch niedirge MKP. haben . Im Jahr 2000 wäre die Firma noch mit 50 mrd. U$ bewertet worden, ...aber die Zeiten ändern sich halt (meine Meinung)
Also um nochmal auf den Titel dieses Threads einzugehen - treffen wir noch die 30 U$ dieses Jahr? Kann sein - könnte mir vorstellen, dass die Aktie auch bewusst runtergeredet wird - weil wer würde nicht Chinas No 1 für 1 mrd. U$ kaufen wollen. Ein KZ von 400 U$ ist aber auch möglich auf sich von 5 Jahren. Was ist eigentlich aus den ganzen anderen China-Internethighflyern geworden (so Pacific Internet, Sina.com..u.s.w.) kenn mich nicht so aus.Natürlich haben sich schon viele Blasen aus dem Traum Chinas Internetfirma No 1 zu sein an der Börse gebildet...aber bei dieser Firma verlasse ich mich halt auf Berichte Einheimischer.

Baidu Announces First Quarter 2006 Results


2006-05-09 16:30 ET - News Release


BEIJING, May 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Baidu.com, Inc. , the leading Chinese language Internet search provider, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2006.(1)

First Quarter 2006 Highlights

* Total revenues increased by 18.0% sequentially or 196.8% year-over-year
to RMB135.6 million ($16.9 million).

* Net income increased by 43.5% sequentially or 1309.0% year-over-year to
RMB35.2 million ($4.4 million). Basic and diluted earnings per share
("EPS") were RMB1.07 ($0.13) and RMB1.02 ($0.13), respectively.

* Net income excluding share-based compensation expenses and cumulative
effect of change in accounting principle (non-GAAP) was RMB43.5 million
(US$5.4 million). Basic and diluted EPS excluding share-based
compensation expenses and cumulative effect of change in accounting
principle (non-GAAP) were RMB1.31 ($0.16) and RMB1.26 ($0.16),
respectively.

* The number of active online marketing customers grew to over 74,000, an
increase of 17.5% from the previous quarter.

"Baidu posted another strong quarter as we continued to extend our leadership in the Chinese search market," said Robin Li, Baidu's Chairman and CEO. "Our customer base expanded as we further strengthened our distribution capability and as companies in China increasingly realized the benefits of Baidu's pay-for-performance online marketing platform."

"Traffic growth remained strong as we continued to improve our core search function and enhance user experience. We also launched a number of new products and services that meet our users' search needs and allow them to interact through a unique community search environment."

New products and features launched in 2006 to date include Baidu Ancient Chinese Literature Search, Baidu Government Search, Baidu Postal Code Search and Baidupedia. Baidupedia, together with Baidu Post Bar and Baidu Knows, form a trio of knowledge-based search products that reflect the collective wisdom of users, creating a powerful platform for online communities.

"Less than expected seasonality impact combined with continued improvement in our monetization algorithm contributed to the strong revenue growth in the first quarter," said Shawn Wang, Baidu's CFO. "And, the strong top line enabled us to deliver robust earnings, which reflect the scalability inherent in our business model."

"During the first quarter, we continued to invest in our technology and product innovation, as well as sales and distribution infrastructure," Mr. Wang continued. "We are very encouraged by the demonstrated strength of our business and the potential of China's search market. We remain committed to making investments for the long-term."

First Quarter 2006 Results

Baidu reported total revenues of RMB135.6 million ($16.9 million) for the first quarter ended March 31, 2006, representing an 18.0% increase from the previous quarter and a 196.8% increase from the corresponding period in 2005. This exceeded the top end of the Company's previous revenue guidance for the quarter, despite the impact of the long Chinese New Year holiday, during which there is typically less Internet usage and online marketing activity.

Online marketing revenues for the first quarter were RMB132.1 million ($16.5 million), representing an 18.2% increase from the fourth quarter of 2005 and a 207.0% increase from the first quarter of 2005. The growth was driven by the increase in the number of active online marketing customers, which increased 17.5% from the fourth quarter of 2005 to more than 74,000 as of March 31, 2006. Customer expansion was driven by the increased effectiveness of the Company's direct sales offices and distributor network. Revenue per online marketing customer for the first quarter remained stable at RMB1,774 ($221.3).

Traffic acquisition cost (TAC) as a component of cost of revenues was RMB12.3 million ($1.5 million), representing 9.1% of total revenues, compared to 7.8% in the fourth quarter of 2005. The increase in TAC as a percentage of revenues primarily reflects the continued growth in contextual marketing products in conjunction with Baidu Union websites and increase in the number of Baidu Union members.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the first quarter were RMB50.3 million ($6.3 million), representing an increase of 2.0% from the previous quarter and an increase of 145.2% from the first quarter of 2005.

Research and development expenses were RMB15.5 million ($1.9 million), representing an 8.7% sequential increase and a 136.7% increase from the corresponding period in 2005, primarily due to expansion of headcount.

Share-based compensation expenses, which were allocated to related expense line items pursuant to the requirement of SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin 107, increased in aggregate to RMB 12.8 million ($1.6 million) in the first quarter of 2006 from RMB 10.5 million in the previous quarter. The sequential increase in share-based compensation expenses was primarily due to adoption of SFAS 123(R), Share-Based Payment. (Please see section entitled "Changes in Accounting Principle" below for more information.)

Operating profit on a GAAP basis was RMB26.9 million ($3.4 million), representing an 89.3% increase from the fourth quarter of 2005 and an 883.0% increase from the first quarter of 2005. Operating profit excluding share- based compensation expenses (non-GAAP) was RMB39.7 million ($5.0 million) for the first quarter of 2006, a 61.0% increase sequentially and a 347.4% increase from the corresponding period in 2005.

Net income on a GAAP basis was RMB35.2 million ($4.4 million), representing a 43.5% increase from the previous quarter and a 1309.0% increase from the first quarter of 2005. Basic and diluted EPS for the first quarter of 2006 amounted to RMB1.07 ($0.13) and RMB1.02 ($0.13), respectively.

Net income excluding share-based compensation expenses and cumulative effect of change in accounting principle (non-GAAP) was RMB43.5 million ($5.4 million), a 24.1% increase from the previous quarter and a 402.7% increase from the first quarter of 2005. Basic and diluted EPS excluding share-based compensation expenses and cumulative effect of change in accounting principle (non-GAAP) for the first quarter of 2006 was RMB1.31 ($0.16) and RMB1.26 ($0.16), respectively.

As of March 31, 2006 the Company had cash and cash equivalents of RMB975.9 million ($121.7 million). Net operating cash flow and capital expenditures for the first quarter of 2006 were RMB 94.5 million ($11.8 million) and RMB12.4 million ($1.5 million), respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP), which is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, other non-operating income, share-based compensation expenses and cumulative effect of change in accounting principle, were RMB52.2 million ($6.5 million) for the first quarter of 2006, representing a 42.8% increase from the previous quarter and a 270.4% increase from the corresponding period in 2005.

Outlook for Second Quarter 2006

Baidu currently expects to generate total revenues in an amount ranging from RMB186 million ($23 million) to RMB193 million ($24 million) in the second quarter of 2006, representing a 167% to 177% increase from the corresponding period in 2005. This forecast reflects Baidu's current and preliminary view, which is subject to change.

Changes in Accounting Principle

Beginning on January 1, 2006, Baidu has adopted SFAS 123(R), Share-Based Payment, which requires measurement of compensation cost for share-based awards at fair value on the date of grant. The fair value of restricted shares is determined based on the quoted price of Baidu's ordinary shares, while the fair value of share options is determined using a Black-Scholes valuation model. The fair value, net of estimated forfeitures, is recognized as an expense over the service period.

Baidu has selected the modified prospective method as its transition method of SFAS 123(R) adoption. The application of modified prospective method has resulted in a cumulative benefit of change in accounting principle of RMB4.6 million ($0.6 million) in the first quarter of 2006, which reflects the cumulative impact of estimating future forfeitures for the options granted after our initial public offering but prior to January 1, 2006. The cumulative benefit of change in accounting principle was presented in a separated line in the consolidated statement of income for the first quarter of 2006.

With the adoption of SFAS 123(R), the Company expects its 2006 full year share-based compensation expenses for awards granted to employees prior to April 1, 2006 to be RMB37.7 million ($4.7 million). This does not include the aforementioned cumulative benefit of change in accounting principle nor expenses to be recognized over the remainder of the year related to employee share awards that are granted after April 1, 2006 or non-employee share awards that have been or may be granted.

In addition, the Company adopted SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 107 which requires share-based compensation to be presented in the same manner as cash compensation rather than as a separate line item on the statement of income. Share-based compensation expenses recognized in prior periods have been reclassified to conform to the presentation in the current period.

Conference Call Information

Baidu's management will hold an earnings conference call at 8 PM on May 9, 2006 U.S. Eastern Daylight Time (8 AM on May 10, 2006 Beijing/Hong Kong time).

Der Chart: spricht für sich. Kurzfristig sehe ich das Kursziel von ca. 90 US Dollar erreicht. Was nach diesem explosiven Kursschub passiert werden wir in den kommenden Tagen sehen. Ich würde mich nicht wundern, wenn das Gap geschlossen wird. Einige werden vielleicht kurzfristig short gehen, zumal Kursausbrüche nach Zahlen für mich nicht so interessant sind.

Eure Meinung?!

Also ich würd mich nicht wundern, wenn die "Chinaphantasie" die Kurse über mehr als 90 USD treiben würde.

WIKIPEDIA - Konkurrenz aus China

Chinas größte Suchmaschine Baidu baut eine zensierte Online-Enzyklopädie auf, die vom Prinzip her wie Wikipedia funktioniert. Wikipedia selbst ist seit Oktober 2005 wegen kritischer Inhalte in China gesperrt. Peking - Chinas Konkurrenz für das von Internetnutzern geschriebene Nachschlagewerk Wikipedia verbietet "bösartige Beurteilungen des gegenwärtigen nationalen Systems" oder "Angriffe auf Regierungsinstitutionen und Funktionäre", wie aus den Bestimmungen des Baidu Baike genannten Dienstes hervorgeht.
Verboten sind Beiträge, die "die gesellschaftliche und öffentliche Ordnung schädigen" oder "Streit im Zusammenhang mit Minderheiten, Rassismus, Religion und Regionen anzetteln". Baidu behält sich die Interpretation "angemessener" Beiträge vor.
So ist ein Abfragen von Begriffen wie der in China verbotenen Falun Gong-Bewegung oder des Dalai Lama weder auf Englisch noch auf Chinesisch möglich.

Die internationale Online-Enzyklopädie Wikipedia, die Versionen in vielen Sprachen anbietet, begann seine chinesische Version 2001 und hat heute 67.000 Einträge. Zunächst waren vor allem wissenschaftliche und geschichtliche Themen aufgegriffen worden, so dass sich Chinas staatliche Zeitungen Anfang 2004 lobend über Wikipedia äußerten. Die erste Blockade durch die chinesische Zensur wurde aber 2004 um den Jahrestag der Niederschlagung der Demokratiebewegung am 4. Juni 1989 dokumentiert.

Umstrittener Auftritt: Google ist seit Beginn des Jahres mit einer chinesischen Version online.
Als heikle Themen kamen die Ein-Kind-Politik sowie die Herrschaft der Kommunistischen Partei hinzu, so dass der Zugang zu Wikipedia nach sporadischen Unterbrechungen im Oktober 2005 endgültig gesperrt wurde. Selbst die deutschen oder englischen Versionen sind nicht mehr zugänglich.

Das Internetunternehmen Baidu nutzt die Sperre jetzt, um sich selbst als Nummer Eins der offenen Enzyklopädien in China zu etablieren. In einem Interview der "Financial Times" gab Baidu-Chef Robin Li vor, nicht einmal zu wissen, dass Wikipedia in China gesperrt sei. Er bestätigte, das "Baidupedia", wie seine Enzyklopädie auf Englisch genannt wird, das gleiche Prinzip kopiert hat.

Nach eigenen Angaben enthält Baidu Baike kurz nach dem Start im April bereits 107.662 Wörter. Wikipedia selbst beziffert die Zahl der Einträge Ende April auf 40.000. Autoren, deren Beiträge erfolgreich die Zensur passieren, können Titel erwerben und praktisch online Karriere machen. Anders als bei Wikipedia, deren Texte wie freie Software veröffentlicht werden, sichert sich Baidu aber alle Urheberrechte.

In China gibt es rund 111 Millionen Internetnutzer. Um diesen riesigen Markt zu nutzen, machen mehrere amerikanische Internet-Unternehmen Zugeständnisse an die Zensurbestimmungen. Kritiker werfen etwa Yahoo vor, den Pekinger Behörden mit der Bereitstellung von Verbindungsdaten dabei geholfen zu haben, einen Journalisten und einen Internet-Dissidenten zu fassen, die später zu Gefängnisstrafen verurteilt wurden.

Die Technologie von Cisco soll anderen Berichten zufolge in China dazu eingesetzt werden, Internet-Inhalte zu zensieren und Cyber-Dissidenten aufzuspüren. Sowohl Google als auch Microsoft haben eingeräumt, bei der Zensur von Websites mit den chinesischen Behörden zusammenzuarbeiten.


Good luck allen BIDU Fans!Let`s STAY LONG oder?
