The American camera and social media company impressed markets with its Q2 2021 earnings, beating expectations across the board

Snap posted an adjusted EPS of 10 cents, topping the 1 cent loss forecasted by Refinitiv. Revenue-wise, it has single-handedly beaten the $846 million expected, with figures coming in at $982 million. Moreover, Snap net losses narrowed 53% to $152 million compared to the same time last year.

The number of daily active users went up 5% to 293 million. The number is more than 23% higher than the 238 million daily users reported a year prior.

For Q3, Snap expects year-over-year revenue growth of 58% - 60%, and its daily active users to reach approx. 301 million. Derek Andresen, Snap CFO, stated: “This range reflects our best current estimate of the potential impact of anticipated disruptions associated with the iOS platform changes.”
