Pop Culture Group (NASDAQ:CPOP) stock is rising higher on Thursday alongside an operational update from the Chinese entertainment events hosting company.

According to a press release, the firm’s revenue for the last six months of 2023 came in at $24 million. That’s a major win for CPOP stockholders compared to its previous revenue of $11.25 million. That means its revenue jumped 113% year-over-year (YOY).

To go along with that, Pop Culture Group notes that consolidated gross profit in the same six-month period was $1.78 million. That’s another reason for CPOP shareholders to celebrate, considering it reported a consolidated gross profit of -$2.34 million during the previous period.

“During the six months ended December 31, 2023, Pop Culture experienced a growth in its online brand marketing and promotion business, which increased by over 280% compared to the same period of the previous fiscal year.”
