(Reuters) – EBay forecast lower-than-expected revenue and profit for the current quarter and the full year, sending the company’s shares (EBAY) down nearly 10% in extended trading.

The company forecast first-quarter adjusted profit of 43-45 cents per share and revenue of $2.05 billion-$2.10 billion.

Analysts on average were expecting a profit of 48 cents per share and revenue of $2.16 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

The company’s full-year adjusted profit forecast of $1.82-$1.87 per share and revenue forecast of $8.5 billion-$8.8 billion also missed analysts average estimates.

EBay, which is facing stiff competition from e-commerce rival Amazon.com Inc as well as traditional retailers, also reported that revenue did not grow in the holiday quarter.
