Groupon (GRPN) Q4 2018 Earnings Preview

Daily-deal service Groupon (GRPN) might be looking at a slide in revenue, but it is expected to post a profit jump as it announces its fourth-quarter 2018 results on Feb. 12.

However, how the results stack up to the estimates would be the main focus when the numbers are out. The Street now expects 13 cents a share on revenue of $785.13 million.

 

LOOKING BACK

In the previously reported third quarter, Groupon reported a jump in earnings of 8 cents a share from nil profit a year ago. This came about due to a benefit related to the IBM settlement as well as lower costs and expenses. The bottom line surpassed analysts’ expectations, sending the stock higher following the announcement.

Gross billings also shot down 9.3% to $1.22 billion in the past quarter, while active customers on the site slipped to 48.8 million from 49.1 million during the prior-year period.

Back then, Groupon announced that it expected FY 2018 adjusted EBITDA to be $280-290 million.
