CORRECTED (OFFICIAL)-NetEase says less than 1% of its revenue comes from minors

(Corrects headline and text after NetEase corrects statement to clarify that “less than 1%” refers to the amount of revenue it gets from minors, not the impact on its earnings)

Aug 31 (Reuters) - NetEase Inc Chief Executive Officer Ding Lei said on Tuesday the gaming company gets less than 1% of its revenue from minors.

The comments came after China’s new rules, published on Monday, forbid under-18s from playing video games for more than three hours a week as part of a major shift by Beijing to strengthen control over some key sectors of its economy. (Reporting by Tiyashi Datta in Bengaluru and Brenda Goh;)
