Not frightened by the number, but it seems that the number is slightly different from the figure we read the Tencent financial report yesterday.
Last night, Tencent released its Q2 quarterly earnings report for 2009, which refers to the number of employees and total salaries as usual: Tencent Group currently has 56,310 employees, an increase of 7626 new employees from 48,684 last year; the total compensation cost in the first half is RMB 24.259 billion.
Therefore, last night we also calculated according to the usual practice: according to Tencents first quarter earnings report, the total salary of Tencent in the first quarter is 11.616 billion yuan, so the total salary of Tencent in the second quarter should be 12.643 billion yuan, the average monthly salary should be 74.8 million yuan, more than 71 million yuan!
Your excellency, there must be something strange about this matter! _____________
The income of employees in Ali, Tencent, Huawei and other companies has always been a topic of public concern.
Therefore, as soon as the financial reports of these enterprises are issued, the media will be keen to calculate the average monthly salary according to the total number of employees and the total salary.
In the first quarter, after Tencents financial report was issued, we immediately calculated the average monthly salary of Tencent employees: 709,000. After the figures came out, they attracted wide attention. Many netizens ridiculed that poverty limited imagination.
Later, many Tencent employees came out to dispel rumors that their salaries were not so high at all, and that this was the average number of executives.
In fact, even without considering that executives have raised their average salary, this average value is still inappropriate as an average monthly salary. After all, in the part of salary expenditure, there are five insurance and one fund, training fee, catering fee and so on.
However, even with these 74,800 monthly salaries, it is still a very stunning figure: Tencent employees are well paid!
QQ falls again after returning light

Tencent Groups second quarter earnings showed that QQs monthly active accounts were 808 million, up 0.6% year-on-year, but fell 1.8% from 823 million in the first quarter.

However, QQ is still very positive about its direction of development, that is, to build a young peoples economic empire to constantly meet the needs of young peoples personality expression, social interaction and emotional precipitation.
At Tencent Global Digital Ecology Conference in May this year, Tencent Vice President Liang Zhu further disclosed the future of QQ and commercial ideas.

Over 30 billion yuan of foreign investment in half a year
Tencent, the King of Hong Kong Stocks in the first half of its investment performance is still absolute.

Several figures add up. Even if the extra investment made by Tencent to the joint venture company is not counted, Tencent Groups foreign investment in the first half of the year has exceeded RMB 31.2 billion.
One bright spot in the earnings report is that in the first half of this year, a A-share listed company invested by Tencent completed its major asset restructuring and acquired all the shares held by Tencent in a joint venture company through share swap. After the reorganization, Tencent Group received about 5% of the common shares issued by the listed company, with a value of about 3.526 billion yuan.

Gross interest rate of financial science and technology and enterprise services is relatively stable

But in September last year, Tencent carried out the third organizational restructuring, set up cloud and smart industry group (CSIG), integrated Tencents basic capabilities of cloud, location services, security, big data, etc., determined to embrace the industrial Internet in an all-round way.
