China's Pinduoduo beats quarterly revenue estimates

May 27 (Reuters) - China's Pinduoduo Inc PDD.O on Friday reported better-than-expected quarterly revenue, as more people shopped online due to a resurgence in COVID-19 cases in parts of the country. U.S.-listed shares of the Shanghai-based company rose 7% in trading before the bell. As China fights its worst outbreak of COVID-19 infections, its uncompromising "zero-COVID" policy has placed hundreds of millions of people under strict lockdown, keeping them dependent on e-commerce platforms for groceries and other items. Pinduoduo's business model allowing buyers to avail greater discounts when they purchase products in groups has helped it to attract consumers with less disposable income, especially in lower-tier cities, and challenge rivals including Alibaba BABA.N and JD.com JD.O. Pinduoduo's total revenue rose 7% to 23.79 billion yuan ($3.55 billion) in the first quarter, compared with estimates of 20.61 billion yuan, according to IBES data from Refinitiv. The company's net income attributable to ordinary shareholders was 2.6 billion yuan during the quarter ended March 31, compared with a loss of 2.91 billion yuan a year ago.
