Quoting Management: Mr. Michael Chi, Chairman of Perfect World commented, “We ended 2012 with the fourth quarter top-line results in line with our expectations. During the past year of 2012, we decelerated in-game promotional activities and primarily focused on longer-term projects in our pipeline and content enhancements for our existing titles in order to maintain a healthy life cycle of our portfolio and sustainable growth of our business. As such, our 2012 results came in softer than our previous year’s results. However, we believe this was a necessary step for the long-term benefit of our business and are confident that our efforts over the past year will translate into more high-quality entertainment and services for our players worldwide in 2013 and beyond.”
