Tencent Music Entertainment debuts its IPO on NYSE to strike a chord with stock market investors. Tencent Music goes public and marks the biggest IPO by a major Chinese Internet company since the Alibaba e-commerce debut IPO back in 2014. Raising more than $1 billion via this massive IPO, Tencent now serves 880 million active freemium users per month, but its premium subscribers represent no more than 5% of the total user base. CNBC economic news host Jim Cramer suggests that Tencent Music shares are great opportunities for U.S. stock market investors in the midst of uncertain Sino-U.S. trade tension.

Spotify owns 9% equity stakes in Tencent Music Entertainment, which has been profitable since 2016 with a pristine balance sheet and 83% organic sales revenue growth. Tencent is a major part of the Chinese micropayment ecosystem because the tech titan allows users to deliver virtual gifts such as stickers and red packets. As of December 2018, 9 million active users spend money on virtual gifts through Tencent, these purchases account for 70%+ of corporate revenue. With its instant-messenger apps Tencent QQ (social networks), WeChat (instant messages), and Weibo (microblogs), the Chinese Internet tech titan aims to enrich the digital lives of freemium active users via virtual gifts, online music streams, and instant messages.
