Nextdoor Holdings, the local-focused social media company, has exceeded expectations with its recent financial results, signaling a return to top-line growth following two consecutive quarters of declines.
Solid Performance in Q2
In the second quarter, Nextdoor (ticker: KIND) reported revenue of $57 million, marking a 4% increase from the same period last year. This figure surpassed the Wall Street consensus forecast of $53.5 million. Although the company faced a net loss of $35.4 million, it still outperformed the street's projected loss of $36.5 million.
Moreover, Nextdoor's adjusted EBITDA, which takes into account earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization, showed a loss of $18.6 million. Once again, this result was better than the anticipated loss of $23.3 million.
Growing User Base
Nextdoor also experienced growth in its user base. With an average of 41.6 million weekly users, the platform saw a 13% increase compared to last year.
Positive Outlook for the Future
The social media company remains optimistic about its future prospects. Nextdoor expects to achieve positive revenue growth for the year, along with an improved adjusted EBITDA margin. Additionally, the company forecasts accelerated revenue growth in the second half of the year.
Promising Growth in Q3 and Beyond
Nextdoor's CEO, Sarah Friar, revealed that third-quarter growth is expected to be on par with the second quarter. However, she added that growth will pick up momentum in the fourth quarter, likely reaching a mid to high teens percentage.
While specific details beyond the fourth quarter weren't provided, Friar expressed confidence in Nextdoor's ability to achieve growth exceeding single-digit figures.
Strong Financial Position
At the end of the quarter, Nextdoor boasted a cash reserve amounting to $551.6 million, approximately half of its market capitalization of around $1 billion. Despite repurchasing shares in previous quarters, the company refrained from doing so this time to utilize its cash reserves for better growth opportunities.
Impressive Market Performance
Nextdoor's shares have seen a significant rally of about 41% year-to-date. Following the strong financial results announcement, the stock experienced a 1.7% increase during late trading on Tuesday.
