Spotify could turn a profit for the first time in 2017

However, when a company insists on offering a service that is not at all profitable, that's when we begin to doubt the principles that drive a system.

On the other hand, everything could change in 2017, as they are expected to obtain economic benefits from their activity for the first time.

P J. Parson, an early investor in Spotify, told Reuters he was confident Spotify would turn a profit for the first time in its history in 2017. Much of the credit is due to the fact that they have expanded into Japan and plan to reach China, Russia and South Korea. In the coming months.

So far we have grown and grown. Perhaps the profitability of the system is now starting to be a priority. As investors, we have been working on launching a public offering at some point in the future.

Although the fact that they extend over time an activity that really does not stop providing losses continues to scream.
