Profits rose 33% to 15.4 billion yuan, about $2.4 billion dollars, according to Sina.com's English language site.
81% of that money is going to employees.
The company just announced it will pay $1.9 billion in bonuses to many of its ~150,000 employees.
That averages out to ~$12,000 per employee, but most of the money will go to "level 3" executives and higher.
