  • *Percentages may not foot due to rounding.
  • Revenue increased $42.1 million or 7.9% during the three months ended June 30, 2022, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2021. The increase in revenue was driven primarily by an increase in paying users and an increased mix of sales towards our higher-priced subscription plans offset by the impact of unfavorable foreign exchange rates across multiple currencies.
