SINA expects to report Q1 revenue of $171M and EPS of $0.15, above a consensus of $164.7M and $0.13.

The company also announces it received two notices from Chinese regulators stating its "License for Online Transmission of Audio-Visual Programs would be revoked due to certain unhealthy and indecent content from third-parties or by users" on Sina.com and its affiliated online literature site.

Sina says it's still "evaluating the impact" of the decision. The notices arrive a week after media reports stated Sina's licenses are being revoked.

Subsidiary Weibo (WB) is down 0.9% AH. Sina's Q1 report will arrive "on or around" May 21.
