On August 10, 2021, the Company announced disappointing results for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2021 (“Q2 2021”), including net losses of $9.3 million compared to losses of $3.8 million in the same period the prior year. The Company’s adjusted EBITDA loss for Q2 2021 was $7.1 million (four times higher than the $1.7 million adjusted EBITDA loss experienced in the second quarter of 2020) and its gross profit for Q2 2021 was just $0.8 million (less than one-third of the Company’s gross profit in the second quarter of 2020), with a gross profit margin of just 24%.
The Company also disclosed that it had incurred skyrocketing costs of revenue during the quarter primarily as a result of significantly higher insurance claims incidence – including claims before March 31, 2021 “in excess of the reserves.”
During the Company’s earnings call, executives revealed that the Company had been forced to revamp its claims processes and procedures and improve its risk price adjustments for policies issued by the Company. And when asked whether the Company was actually on track to achieve 45% to 50% gross margins in the near term as previously represented, the Company’s CFO essentially withdrew this goal, calling it a “shoot for the sky” aim and stating that “shooting for margin upwards of 40%” was more realistic.
On this news, the price of the Company stock fell nearly 50%, closing at $9.85, down $9.27 per share.
