From 2014 to 2019, the company’s total loss has exceeded 6 billion yuan. < / P > < p > at the same time, it should be noted that at present, the competition of online tourism platforms is fierce. Under the strong competition of Ctrip, Ali and meituan, the labor cost of tuniu, which mainly relies on group tourism projects, is under great pressure. Under the background that the global epidemic has not been completely controlled, it remains to be seen when the company will get out of the net loss. < p > < p > according to the public information, tuniu was officially listed on NASDAQ in 2014. As an old OTA platform, tourism revenue is the main revenue source of the company.

‘s novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic was the main reason for the quarterly net loss in the first quarter to the third quarter of this year. < / P > < p > the revenue of tuniu mainly comes from its tourism business. Obviously, the epidemic situation will have a great impact on its performance. However, if further analysis is made, researchers of investment times have noticed that even before the outbreak of the epidemic, the company’s performance has shown a trend of net loss. < / P > < p > based on the quarterly single quarter performance data, from the fourth quarter of 2018 to the third quarter of 2020, the company’s quarterly single quarter performance shows a trend of net loss, that is, the company has recorded net loss for eight consecutive quarters, with a total loss of 1.225 billion yuan. < / P > < p > in addition, if the annual performance data is taken as the analysis benchmark, researchers of investment times have noticed that the annual performance of the company has been in the state of net loss since it was listed in 2014. Specifically, from 2014 to 2019, the company’s loss for six consecutive years is as high as 6.035 billion yuan.
