SGOCO Group (SGOC) stock is jumping after the company announced it has launched a new online sales platform on JD.com (JD).
SGOCO Group (SGOC) plunged after the company reported unaudited preliminary results for the fourth quarter of the fiscal year 2013. The company, which designs, distributes and develops flat-panel displays, reported a 30.3% year-over-year decline in revenue to $44.2 million from $63.4 million. Net income plummeted 62.7% year over year to $1.2 million from $3.2 million, while earnings per share also dropped 63.2% to 7 cents from 19 cents. Gross profit fell 28.2% to $3.5 million from $4.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. SGOCO said in its statement that the sharp revenue decline comes from the "significant growth" the company had in the fourth quarter of 2012; the 2013 quarter, on the other hand, was "normal."
