We check what might be going on with the BNPL company to start the trading week.
The post Sizzle, fizzle, pop! What’s with the Sezzle share price on Monday? appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –
Sezzle shares opened at 82 cents apiece, fetching as high as $1.05 in early morning trade before settling to their current price of 84 cents a share, up 2.44%.
The ASX buy now, pay later share has certainly been on a wild ride lately. Since the beginning of 2022, the company’s share price remains down 70%. But, since 20 July, it has gained more than 300%.
And it seems the rollercoaster is continuing despite no news being released by the company today.
However, at the end of last week, Sezzle released its quarterly update for the three months to 30 June 2022.
Sezzle said that underlying merchant sales (UMS) for the second quarter were up 1.9% year on year to US$419.1 million. Total income grew by 6.8% year on year to US$29.3 million, representing 7% of underlying merchant service. Merchant fee income represented more than 80% of total income.
As a percentage of UMS, the provision for uncollectible accounts receivable declined to 1.9%, down from 3.4% in the prior corresponding period.
Active merchants rose 19% year on year, while active consumers went up 18.2% year on year to 3.4 million.
In a sign of ongoing customer loyalty, repeat usage improved for the 42nd consecutive month to 93.5%.
It seems the ongoing performance of the business could be buoying the Sezzle share price.
The company also outlined it has taken several actions aimed at reaping more than US$40 million in expected annualised revenue and cost savings to improve cash flow and accelerate its path to profitability.
Offboarded or renegotiated rates with merchants
Improved virtual card network revenue share
Scaled back efforts in Europe and Brazil
Ceased payment processing in India
Reduced third-party spend
Launched the Sezzle premium subscription product
Certainly, each of these actions could boost the bottom line and help support investor confidence.
