Two leading ASX growth shares have revealed a lot of growth today.
Some businesses are doing it tough during COVID-19, but others are experiencing elevated levels of growth.
These two are seeing strong growth:
Volpara Health Technologies Ltd (ASX: VHT)
The Volpara share price is up more than 1% after it released a quarterly update.
It said that it achieved record quarterly cash receipts of NZ$6.4 million, an increase of 30% (and 50% in constant currency). Subscription-based receipts rose by 38% (and 60% in constant currency) to NZ$6.1 million.
Net operating cash outflow in the first quarter was NZ$3.2 million, an improvement of 20% year on year. The business finished the period with NZ$29.1 million of cash.
Volpara’s market share of women being screened improved by a percentage point, from 32% to 33%. Its average revenue per user (ARPU) was US$1.42, with the average ARPU in the first quarter of US$1.55 – this was driven by multiple, single profit, large volume deals. The ASX growth share also said its client churn continues to remain low.
The Volpara Group CEO Dr Ralph Highnam said:
Q1 is typically one of our weaker quarters given the US summer, but we’ve turned in another solid set of sales numbers, and we’re particularly pleased with hitting the 33% landmark of total US women screened. The merger with CRA Health is exceeding expectations and continues to go well, with integration of all.
Temple & Webster Group Ltd (ASX: TPW)

Temple & Webster’s earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) surged 141% to $20.5 million.
