Xiaomi’s Revenue Dives 10% After Smartphone Demand Tanks
(Bloomberg) — Xiaomi Corp.’s quarterly revenue fell almost 10% as it battled a slumping global smartphone market and weak consumer demand at home.
Sales of mobile devices fell 11%, leading declines across business divisions encompassing smart electronics and internet services. The Beijing-based company logged sales of 70.5 billion yuan ($9.9 billion), slightly above estimates. But it posted a surprise net loss of 1.5 billion yuan for the quarter through September, reflecting a write-down of almost 3 billion yuan on items such as investment losses. Adjusted net income, which strips out exceptionals, exceeded analysts’ estimates.
