We think the JV with JAKKS, its status as the sole supplier of Warcraft toys, and thesecond (launched already) and third (to be rolled out in Q317) seasons of the selfproducedanimated series “Magic Star Academy” are likely to help Meisheng’sanimation derivative revenue grow more than 30% YoY in 2016-17. We expectrevenue in the game segment to increase more than 30% YoY in 2016-18, withMeisheng’s gross margin continuing to improve. The company guided for 60-90% YoYprofit growth in Q1-Q316.
Valuation: Lowering price target to Rmb41.5; maintain Buy rating
Based on H116results, we reduce our 2016E animation derivative revenue YoY growthbut raise gross margin and administrative expense ratio. As a result, we lower our2016-18E EPS to Rmb0.48/0.71/0.96from Rmb0.52/0.75/1.04. We derive our newprice target of Rmb41.5(from Rmb45) using a DCF-based methodology(WACC=8.4%). We maintain our Buy rating.
