In a recent release of its 2023 Annual Report, Lianlian DigiTech Co., Ltd., a giant in the digital payment solution industry in China and a key driver of global commerce digitalization, disclosed an impressive year of financial performance, characterized by substantial growth in revenue and total payment volume. The Hong Kong-listed company (HKEX: 2598) reported that for the year 2023, it achieved a revenue increase of 38% year-on-year, totaling an extraordinary RMB1.030 billion. Alongside its robust revenue gains, the firm upheld a high gross profit margin of 56%.

The tech behemoth didn't just excel in revenue terms; it also managed a remarkable positive shift in its operating cash flow, with non-GAAP earnings reaching an estimated RMB16 million. This has marked a sweeping turnaround, with the operating cash flow estimated to be approximately RMB95 million.

Unprecedented Growth in Digital Payment Services

Over the past year, Lianlian DigiTech's core businesses have seen remarkable advancements, owing to a culmination of years of acquiring global licenses, a strong and ever-growing customer base, and unparalleled product capabilities.

In detailed figures, the global payment revenue within the digital payment sector augmented by 37% to RMB660 million, whilst the domestic segment spiked by 44% to RMB220 million. The company's value-added services, a relatively new contender in its portfolio, didn't lag, marking a 47% increase to RMB130 million, thus becoming a significant growth engine for the firm.
