    confusing structure

    The following in red is confusing. Would you please rewrite it more easily?

    Venan, with fewer than 200,000 unique users playing Book of Heroes, is making around a quarter of the revenues that Tumblr made in 2012. That's an audience of just 0.1 percent of Tumblr's making 25 percent of the revenue, through application of the Curve.

    Is this saying "the revenue of Venan is the same as the 25% of Tumblr's revenue, and the 25% of Tumblr's revenue came from just 0.1% of their customers"?

    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    Venan has an audience of less than 200,000
    200,000 = 1% of the audience which Tumblr had in 2012
    Venan made 25% of the revenue which Tumblr made in 2012

    If Tumblr made $100.00 in 2012 Venan made 25% of that, or $25.00.
