Tencent Music Entertainment, the biggest streaming-music service in China, is set to report fourth-quarter earnings after Tuesday’s closing bell. Here’s what analysts surveyed by Bloomberg are expecting:

  • Adjusted earnings per share: $0.55 
  • Revenue: $5.3 billion 
  • 2019 adjusted-earnings-per-share guidance: $2.92
  • 2019 revenue guidance: $26.4 billion 

This will be the first time that Tencent Music has released earnings since going public in the US in December. The company postponed its initial-public-offering for two months over fears that the brutal sell-off that wreaked havoc on markets in October and November would affect its pricing. Tencent Music’s offering raised $1.1 billion, making it the fourth-largest Chinese IPO last year by deal value. 

Tencent Music operates several popular music brands in China — including QQ Music, Kugou, Kuwo and WeSing — and had more than 800 million unique monthly active users in the second quarter of 2018, according to its filing.

Tencent Music was up 48% this year through Tuesday.
