Chinese domain name company goes public.
Four months ago I wrote that Chinese domain name company eName was going public. As of yesterday, the company is now publicly traded.
China consultancy Allegravita has translated eName’s press release about going public. You can read the translation in full here (pdf).
Some highlights include:
– at year-end 2015, domain registration income was CNY215 million, taking up 82.94% of income, while domain exchange income was CNY44 million or 17.03%.
– domain registrations increased nearly 7x last year compared to 2014
– the company plans to expand into additional intellectual property services such as trademarks
