China's JD.com Sees 29% Jump In Revenue In Third Quarter
Chinese e-commerce company JD.com Inc on Monday posted a 29% jump in third-quarter revenue as online orders for groceries and other essentials stayed strong even after coronavirus-led restrictions were lifted in the world's second-largest economy.
JD.com, which competes with Pinduoduo and larger rival Alibaba Group Holding in a domestic market nursing pandemic-driven losses, benefited from a broader shift to consumers shopping online from the comfort of their homes.
Sales in its product segment, which includes online retail sales, rose 27% to 151.4 billion yuan ($23 billion) in the quarter.
Net income attributable to ordinary shareholders rose to 7.56 billion yuan from 612.3 million yuan a year earlier.
JD.com reported net revenue of 174.21 billion yuan ($26.47 billion) in the third quarter ended 30 September, compared with 134.84 billion yuan last year.
