Huayi Profits Set to Climb

'Detective Dee' sequel hit will boost next quarter

HONG KONG — Huayi Brothers Media, currently China’s largest listed film company, revised the guidance for its upcoming third quarter financial results.

The company, which has a December year end, said that third quarter results may show a more than 200% increase on last year and that it may report net profits in the range of RMB403 – RMB430 range ($65 million – $70 million).

However it explained that a significant portion came from investment gains and that profits earned in the third quarter itself may actually have declined.

It pointed to strong revenues from Tsui Hark’s “Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon.” The fantasy action film has grossed RMB544 million ($88 million) at the mainland Chinese box office as of Monday Oct. 14, but explained that only four days of its revenues fell into the third quarter.
