[UPDATED] New UK filings show Soundcloud revenue increasing from $102 million in 2017 to $127 million in 2018. But that’s just the start of the good news for Soundcloud, a platform that came within weeks of running out of money in 2017.

Soundcloud just ended the year with the strongest sequential financial quarters in the company’s history, achieving a $200 million gross revenue run rate for the first time in 4Q 2019.
