  • Our actual operating results may differ significantly from our outlook.
  • We have broad discretion in the use of the net proceeds from our IPO and may not use them effectively.
  • Our directors, executive officers and principal stockholders beneficially own a substantial percentage of our stock and will be able to exert significant control over matters subject to stockholder approval.
  • The dual class structure of our common stock has the effect of concentrating voting control with certain stockholders, in particular, our Chief Executive Officer, which will limit investors’ ability to influence the outcome of important transactions, including a change in control.
  • Future sales and issuances of our Class A common stock or rights to purchase Class A common stock could result in additional dilution to our stockholders and could cause the price of our Class A common stock to decline.

  • We do not intend to pay dividends on our capital stock, so any returns will be limited to increases in the value of our Class A common stock.
  • We may be subject to tax related controversies.
  • Operating as a public company requires us to incur substantial costs and requires substantial management attention. In addition, our management team has limited experience managing a public company and the requirements of being a public company may strain our resources, divert management’s attention and affect our ability to attract and retain additional executive management and qualified board members.

Management Discussion
  • Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2021 decreased $45 million, or 6%, compared to the same period in 2020 primarily due to a $172 million decrease in marketplace revenue, partially offset by a $127 million increase in logistics revenue.  
  • Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2021 increased $287 million, or 25%, compared to the same period in 2020 primarily due to increased logistics revenue.
  • Marketplace revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 decreased $172 million, or 29%, and $29 million, or 3%, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2020. We believe this decrease was primarily driven by lower order volumes associated with reduced MAUs and LTM Active Buyers, as discussed above under “Key Financial and Performance Metrics.” This decrease in marketplace revenue was partially offset by $21 million of revenue that we recognized during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 related to Wish Cash liability breakage.
