Third-Quarter Forecasts

For the third quarter, the company expects revenues in the range of $48-$49 million, representing year-over-year growth of 72-76%.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is currently pegged at $49.32 million, indicating growth of 76.96% from the year-ago quarter. For earnings, the Zacks Consensus Estimate is currently pegged at 8 cents per share, indicating an increase of 166.67% from the year-ago quarter.

Factors to Note

Fiverr’s platform — which connects people offering logo, poster and brochure designing, photoshop editing, content marketing, web analytics, translation and other services with people outsourcing such work to freelancers — might have benefited from the increasing remote working trend owing to the coronavirus outbreak.

Further, its strong focus on product and technology enhancements is expected to get reflected in the to-be-reported quarter’s results.

Also, the company’s marketing efficiency — courtesy of positive trends in both organic and paid channels — may have contributed to its performance in the quarter to be reported.

Moreover, the company’s focus on international expansion might have acted as a tailwind in the to-be-reported quarter. It expanded its global marketplace to two new languages — French and Spanish.

Strong momentum in performance marketing is also expected to have aided the company in acquiring new buyers in the to-be-reported quarter.

During the quarter, it launched second semi-annual Small Business Needs Index, which offers different services that are useful for small businesses to digitally transform in today’s world.

These are likely to have benefited the company in expanding catalog and gaining momentum across larger businesses during the quarter under review.

Furthermore, Fiverr’s accelerated Artificial Intelligence efforts through personalization and customer support might have driven its third-quarter performance.
