Let’s see how things have shaped prior to this announcement.
Factors at Consider
CooTek’s quarterly performance is likely to have benefited from the accelerated monetization of its online literature and casual games businesses. Further, increased revenue mix of the in-house ad network is expected to have supported revenue and margin growth during the to-be-reported quarter.
The company’s sustained focus on rolling out new mobile applications is likely to have helped it add new customers, thereby bringing in incremental revenues in the December-end quarter. Its high customer retention ratio is anticipated to have aided top-line growth.
Nonetheless, the company’s bottom-line performance might have been hurt by higher sales and marketing (S&M) expenses mainly due to increased investments in user acquisitions.
