1. Revenue Situation
Revenue of the WIMI Hologram AR mainly comes from the revenue from AR advertising and AR entertainment. The profit situation of WIMI Hologram AR was quite outstanding, with net profit rising from 73.33 million Yuan for the whole of 2017 to 89.21 million Yuan for the whole of 2018. Net profit increased by 15.26 million Yuan, with 68.7 percent of growth rate, which rose from 22.22 million Yuan in the first quarter of 2018 to 37.49 million Yuan in the first quarter of 2019. The gross income of WIMI Hologram AR rose from 49.22 Yuan in the first quarter of 2018 to 78.49 Yuan in the first quarter of 2019, which increased by 29.26 Yuan with 59.5 percent of growing rate. The gross revenue of the company was 225 million Yuan for the whole of 2018.
2. Factors Affecting Operating Results
The number of customers of WIMI Hologram AR was 485. The ability of WIMI Hologram AR to increase the number of customers and the average revenue of AR advertising services can be strongly explained with 121 holographic advertisers in 2018. Compared with the average income of about 1.5 million Yuan per customer gained for the whole of 2018, the average income per customer gained was 1.4 million Yuan for the whole of 2017. In the first quarter of 2018 and 2019, about 80 per cent of WIMI Hologram AR revenue came from AR advertising services and intermediate products. The number of advertisers rose by 32.7 percent, from 49 in the first quarter of 2018 to 65 in the quarter of 2019. And additionally, compared with the average income of 700,000 Yuan per customer gained in the first quarter of 2018, it was increased to about 1 million Yuan for per customer in the first quarter of 2019. The ability of the WIMI Hologram AR to increase revenue and profitability will depend on the ability to continue to increase its customer base and revenue per customer gained. In order to achieve this goal, WIMI Hologram AR has made every effort to increase marketing intensity, and improve technical quality and ability.
Investment in technology and talent. WIMI Hologram AR believes that the most important core element of holographic AR industry comes down to research and development related to technological development. Technical progress related to holographic AR will bring holographic AR experience, new services, products and capabilities to a new stage of development. In order to retain existing customers, attract potential customers and keep up with the growth of WIMI Hologram AR business, the company must continue to innovate and promote the development of cutting-edge technology. At present, the research and development work of WIMI mainly focuses on artificial intelligence technology of augmented reality, augmented reality and image processing technology, intelligent hardware technology and photosensitive signal transmission technology, so as to create new services and products.
3. Components of Income
Revenue of the WIMI Hologram AR includes revenue from AR advertising and AR entertainment. AR advertising services use holographic materials and are integrated into advertisements on online media platforms or offline displays. When the relevant services are delivered in accordance with the specific terms of the contract, revenue will be generated for WiMi.
Revenue from the AR entertainment includes software development kit ("SDK"), payment channel services, software development, game services and technology development. When the user completes the payment transaction by SDK, the related income will be generated after deducting the payment to the content provider. The WIMI Hologram AR receives revenue from the sale of software development services.
4. Value Chain of the AR Holographic Industry
The value chain of the holographic AR industry is made up of three main parts. The upstream section refers to those what related to content production, such as key hardware, software, services and providers as well as participants. The mid-stream participants are providers of holographic AR solutions, which integrates with upstream hardware and software systems, and form final products or solutions. The downstream refers to terminal users, including government, enterprises and family or individual consumers.
The business models of the upstream participants in the holographic AR market are different. While hardware, software and service providers focusing on R&D to further increase their core technologies and reduce production costs, holographic AR device integrators and content creators must also identify target users, build brand reputation and enhance user experience. It is common for some integrators of holographic AR device to have strong internal research capabilities and play a role in the upstream and mid-stream markets.
The WIMI Hologram AR has been currently involved in the upstream section, including the development of software, the provision of technology for content production, the creation and distribution of content as well as the mid-stream section, that is, the provision of holographic AR solutions.
5. Competitive Advantages
The AR holographic application platform that WIMI Hologram AR had is in the leading role in China. It is reported by the Frost & Sullivan that the AR holographic application platform that WIMI Hologram AR had has already been the largest one in China judging from the gross revenue in 2017. Based on the data from the Frost & Sullivan, WIMI established the most comprehensive and diversified holographic AR content library among all domestic holographic AR solution providers in 2018.
