SINA mentions these details in its current earnings report:
“Advertising revenues for the first quarter of 2020 were $310.0 million, a decrease of 20% compared to $388.0 million for the same period last year, primarily due to the adverse impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the overall advertising demand, as well as negative currency translation impact. Non-advertising revenues for the first quarter of 2020 were $125.1 million, an increase of 44% compared to $87.1 million for the same period last year.”
SINA doesn’t make mention of an outlook in the Q1 earnings report. That makes sense with the novel coronavirus impacting the economy. Many companies are withholding guidance at this time.
