March Quarter 2016 and Full Fiscal Year 2016 Results"Alibaba has an incredible track record of making long-term bets successful. Here, a bit of historical perspective is important. Take Taobao Marketplace as an example. We started Taobao in 2003 when online shopping in China was virtually nonexistent. For five years, we didn't generate any revenues. Instead, we focused on acquiring users and building an e-commerce ecosystem. Taobao didn't produce meaningful profits until 2010. That is seven years after its founding. History teaches us that it pays to be patient. We are used to investing in long-term initiatives with long-term gestation periods. New initiatives typically take five years to seven years to grow into substantial profitability, and this growth usually takes on a step-function trajectory rather than in a straight line. The ability to remain patient is a competitive advantage. Going forward, we're prepared to continue investing in high-potential businesses that are highly strategic to Alibaba."--Chung Tsai, Alibaba Group Executive Vice Chairman, source: Q1 2016 earnings webcast, transcript links below (emphasis added)

Note that famed shortseller, Jim Chanos, has "real questions"about financial metrics and cash flow for Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce giant. He suspects Alibaba is unprofitable, telling CNBC "We just don't see how profitable or unprofitable that business is," but he did not disclose to CNBC how large his position is.
