Tencent, China’s largest companies are once again at the center of a market
storm, spurred by speculation that Beijing is readying another assault on the
world’s biggest internet arena.

Holdings Ltd. and Meituan -- have shed more than $100 billion in the span of
three turbulent days.
And, Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE:BABA) was among the biggest losers after
reports that authorities have begun another round of checks on its fintech

Jack Ma’s Ant Group Co.....
bloodletting began last Friday, when the top state economic planner demanded Meituan
and its peers lower the fees they charge restaurants in pandemic-hit regions.
On Monday, a
pair of unverified online posts that went viral suggested Tencent -- which
weathered 2021’s onslaught better than most -- was facing a major regulatory
crackdown, forcing its public relations chief into an unusually aggressive
day Beijing had ordered state-run firms to report their exposure to Jack Ma’s
Ant Group Co. -- the hardest-hit firm in a year-long government campaign
against “disorderly capital.”
“The events of the past 48 hours are
a wake-up call that regulation isn’t finished,” said Michael Norris, an analyst
with Shanghai-based consultancy AgencyChina. “We are going to be in a situation where the regulation and the
slowdown in China’s economy happen side by side. It’s going to be challenging
for businesses that rely on consumers and merchant advertising to be able to
make this year’s numbers.”
As well, U.S.
regulators added Alibaba’s AliExpress (and rival Tencent’s WeChat e-commerce
site) to their list of notorious markets which do not do enough to limit trade
in pirated goods. Alibaba’s Taobao was already on the list.
the company, whose main business is e-commerce, rose 9.7% to $38.1 billion but
that was well below its historical growth rate, which has averaged around 40%
since it went public in 2014. Revenue in the quarter was also short of
estimates at $38.9 billion.
customer base continued to grow as well, with the company adding 43 million
customers in the quarter to reach a total of 1.28 billion. Its China commerce
segment, which makes up the majority of its revenue, grew just 7% to $27
billion Management cited "slowing market conditions" and competition
as the main reasons for the weak growth.
also took a $3.9 billion goodwill impairment charge in its digital media and
entertainment segment, a likely response to government orders to divest some of
its media assets. Adjusting for that charge, operating income fell by 34% to
$5.1 billion. Management said the decline was due to investments in growth
per-share basis, the company turned in a profit of $2.65, down 23% from the year-ago
quarter, and ahead of estimates at $2.55.
The risks to
growth are especially prominent at Alibaba, which last year swallowed a record
$2.8 billion fine after regulators forced it to end certain merchant
exclusivity practices that allegedly helped it one-up rivals. The regulatory
assault has cut the company’s market value from $858 billion in October of 2020
to roughly $310 billion.
results confirmed many of the biggest worries about the stock, which is that
government actions have fundamentally changed the company, restraining its
growth and cutting into profits. It's also added a high degree of uncertainty
to Alibaba's future.
