Fiverr Shares Tank 21% Early-Hours Despite Strong Q2 Results

Fiverr International Ltd. (FVRR), an online marketplace for freelance services, has delivered better-than-expected Q3 results as both earnings and revenues surpassed consensus estimates.

Shares of the company, however, dropped a whopping 21% in early trading hours on Thursday after its guidance for Q3 and full-year 2021 revenues fell short of analysts’ expectations.

Q2 revenues jumped 60% from the year-ago period to $75.3 million, surpassing the Street’s estimates of $74.8 million. Active buyers during the quarter increased 43% year-over-year to 4 million from 2.8 million.
