China's Alibaba Group Holding Ltd beat analysts' estimates for fourth-quarter revenue on Wednesday, boosted by growth in its core e-commerce and cloud computing businesses.
The company' shares rose more than 2% to $179.79 in pre-market trading.
Alibaba makes money primarily by selling advertising and promotional services to third-party merchants that list products on Taobao and Tmall, two of its e-commerce sites. The business boomed in tandem with internet adoption and mobile phone penetration in China.
Alibaba's revenue rose to 93.50 billion yuan ($13.59 billion) for the three months ended March 31, beating estimates of 91.58 billion yuan, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.
Revenue from the company's cloud computing business rose 76% in the reported period.
Net income attributable to ordinary shareholders rose to 25.83 billion yuan from 7.56 billion yuan in the fourth quarter.
