Youku Tudou is profitable!

Youku Tudou is profitable!

Today Youku Tudou released its Q4 2013 results and the online video site is now officially profitable! It’s almost 10 years ago since I entered this sector, at that time I had not expected that it would take so long to reach this milestone. Although I have not been involved in the company for quite some time it’s still a nice feeling to see that the company is doing so well.

I dialed in on the earnings call a few hours ago and was impressed with how the company is doing and with their expectations and plans for 2014. The share price immediately reacted, during regular hours it went up by 3% and after the results were published by another 8.5%. Let’s see what will happen when Wall Street opens on Friday!

I am quite happy with this and from the pictures on Weibo I can see that the people at Youku Tudou are also celebrating this result in their office.

Congratulations! Patience is what everybody keeps telling us as well… still 6 more years to go to reach a 10y milestone though :-)
