For the fiscal first quarter, DoorDash reported revenue figures that came ahead of the $993.3 million consensus at $1.08 billion. Total orders reached 329 million during the quarter. On the other hand, it had a loss per share of 34 cents, higher than the 26 cents expected.
The company encountered some setbacks during the quarter, as delivery drivers were in short supply. However, the problem was resolved towards the end of the three months. Here’s what DoorDash executives had to say: “Stronger-than-expected consumer demand, along with extreme weather events and the impact of stimulus checks, resulted in a meaningful undersupply of Dashers in the latter part of Q1.”
Despite the mixed results, DoorDash raised its 2021 forecast for gross order value to between $35 billion and $38 billion, up from a previous range of $30 billion to $33 billion. It also widened its forecast range for the adjusted EP to $0 - $300 million.
At the moment of writing, DoorDash stock price is trading 8.57% higher.
