The Life360 Inc (ASX: 360) share price is marching higher in morning trade, up 2.15% trading at $8.09.

We take a look at the ASX tech share’s quarterly update for the period ending 30 June, along with an acquisition confirmation.

What updates did Life360 report?

The Life360 share price is gaining after the company firstly reported it had signed definitive agreements to acquire Jiobit. Based in the US state of California, Jiobit provides wearable location devices intended for young children, pets and seniors.

The ASX tech share first reported on the pending acquisition on 27 April, which saw the Life360 share price leap to a then record high.

In its June quarterly update, also released this morning, the company said its global monthly active user (MAU) base increased by 4.2 million over the quarter to reach 32.3 million users.

In the United States, MAU was up 12% over the previous quarter and 25% year-on-year, to 20.3 million users. MAU also grew strongly in Australia, up 48% year-on-year and 18% from the prior quarter, to 836,000 users.

Underlying revenue of US$25.0 million (AU$33.8 million) increased 28% year-on-year, while annualised monthly revenue (AMR) for June increased 36% year-on-year to US$105.9 million.

Underlying earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) came in at a loss of US$3.3 million. The company noted this excluded stock based compensation and other non-recurring adjustments.

Commenting on the results, Life360 CEO Chris Hulls said:

Direct revenue was the key driver of the result, benefiting from a 19% year-on-year increase in Paying Circles to 1.0 million, and a 21% uplift in ARPPC. Momentum in our membership model has accelerated with cumulative 327,000 new and upsell subscribers, now accounting for 40% of US paying circles.

While legacy subscribers are grandfathered on their previous plans, the new membership cohort is delivering an ARPPC uplift of 37% versus the first half of 2020.
