Aug 20 (Reuters) - China’s Alibaba Group Holding Ltd beat quarterly revenue estimates on Thursday as its core e-commerce business thrived due to people preferring to shop online for essentials, even as coronavirus-related restrictions eased.
Revenue rose to 153.75 billion yuan ($22.22 billion) in the quarter ended June 30 from 114.92 billion yuan, a year earlier.
Analysts had expected revenue of 147.77 billion yuan, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.
