“In the past, many successful companies, including the investment community, the entrepreneur has this idea : I now need not account can not make money, make money the way it is, I just do enough much user, will be bigger, can earn a lot of money. But this way of thinking and wrong.”
The June 1st alliance summit Baidu Baidu, chairman and chief executive officer Robin Li has little to show the sharp side of like a raging fire: Mobile Internet poured a pot of cold water.
” We have a lot of people forget that, in the PC era, many companies, such as Netscape ( Netscape ) browser, it has a lot of users, but because no commercial mode failed.”
Is not coincidentally, the guests include UC and technology as Batterie COMPAQ Presario CQ61-205SF and chief executive officer Yu Yongfu. A few days later, Yu Yongfu in his micro-blog on Robin Li’s views were refuted.
If you know currently game acquisition, then, will understand the words, Robin Li was a Yu Yongfu space with propaganda tastes: Netscape in the age of the Internet” beat” the failure in the mobile Internet era fully satisfied or contented UC browser, but Yu Yongfu retorts are to a certain extent, shows the UC position.
The protagonist is the natural acquisition Baidu and UC. Baidu official and official UC to” First Financial Daily” reporters denied this claim, but disclosed according to the insider, the message is not weakness lends wings to rumours.
Is take” throat” Baidu
” Baidu in contact with UC began last year, when the solution is Baidu to 1000000000 dollars to the UC100% acquisitions, Baidu has not promised, the second programme is Baidu contributive 400000000 dollar accounted for more than49%, but UC did not accept.” A person close to Baidu insider expresses to our newspaper reporter.
According to Baidu Baidu earnings, as of March 31, 2012, the cash, Batterie COMPAQ Presario CQ71 equivalents and short-term investment amounted to16115000000 yuan ($2559000000), therefore, either $1000000000or $400000000plan, for Baidu, is considered to be a” gamble”.
You know, even on2011Baidu where investment, but also is US $306000000, accounting for 62.01%, equivalent to where to go at $483000000, and the UC valuation is $1000000000.
Baidu why so big? This is behind the baidu mobile Internet strategy vacancy caused by ” frustration and embarrassment”.
” Mobile Internet should be said that has been in existence for at least10 years, many years ago, there are a lot of people and I say Robin ( English Name: Robin Li ) must do, must be in the mobile phone to search good, but I judge this market has no inflection point.” Robin Li in Baidu alliance summit statement said.
” Force too late” really is Baidu mobile Internet layout is the most important reason. According to the third party institutions in Guangdong, Jiangsu, Fujian, Shanghai and Henan five cities do China Mobile Gateway” WAP report”,2012January, flow ratio top five websites, UC accounted for 6.63%, ranking second, baidu accounted for 4.65%, ranking fourth, first and third respectively is the mobile phone tencent.com and China mobile.
And Tencent29.63% flow ratio compared to less than 5% of the Batterie COMPAQ Presario CQ61 , baidu is not worth mentioning. What is worse, the flow is from a considerable part of UC.
UC has cited a report from Analysys International, the report cited from Baidu wireless data,2011 Q1~Q4, third party browser PV ratio, UC 33.2%, QQ14.8%, Opera 1%.
This means that the baidu wireless ( m.baidu.com ) flow into three or more from the UC. More from Baidu unofficially known, this ratio is around 70%. Whether 30% or70%, UC have overcame the Baidu” throat”.
Baidu” on the PC hao123( flow share) was360on share, in mobile phone no browser share, so the relative need UC.” Cheng Lingfeng of Internet observation personage thinks.
In addition, according to the”2012Baidu Developers Conference” release strategy,” APP Web” Baidu in mobile Internet era has become the important direction, called,” APP Web” refers to Baidu is not optimistic at present in the form of APP mobile Internet application, but a more optimistic about the various applications and webpage together, which found that with, without downloading. If in this line of thinking, the search engine as the” entrance” the role has become more important.
Therefore, it is not difficult to understand why, Baidu will be willing to spend on UC so much. Without a UC official data showed last year, UC acquired from Baidu flow achievement reaches as high as 40000000 yuan.
UC energy and” soft costal region”
Though Baidu hand “generous”, but UC still no sign to accept the offer, UC position in?
On 2010, Yu Yongfu accepted the media interview time representation, the value of the UC has reached 200000000 US dollars, in 2011, accepted quality rice network interview that,” Chinese Internet Co from a good company to a platform stage company at least two index points to break, one is income breaks through 1000000000, the market value of more than 1000000000second dollars, I believe we have at least one index has been a breakthrough, is the company’s value.”
