"We performed strongly amidst the challenging macroeconomic and lower trading volumes seen across our industry," said Steve Ehrlich, CEO and Co-founder of Voyager. "Despite market conditions, we continued to deliver customer account and net deposit growth, while continuing to build upon our revenue diversification strategy."

"With the announcement of the private placement of approximately USD$60 million, the Company has over $225 million of net liquidity, comprised of over $175 million in cash, and approximately $50 million in crypto. With the recent changes to our rewards model and actively addressing our cost structure to ensure an efficient use of capital, we are working toward a goal of returning to positive operating income, after adding back stock-based compensation, in early calendar 2023. Ehrlich continued, "Additionally, in the quarter we successfully launched our extremely popular moon mode and on-boarded customers to the beta programs for both our debit card and desktop app. The debit card is on target and expected to be deployed to the remainder of the waitlist throughout the quarter and the desktop app is set to be expanded to a wide group of customers."

The Company announces the following for fiscal 2022 third quarter ended March 31, 2022 Financial and Operational Key Metrics:

  • Revenue for the quarter is $102.7 million, up 70% compared to $60.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.

  • Operating loss is $43.0 million for the quarter vs an income of $29.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. Operating loss/income includes stock-based compensation of $5.4 million for the quarter vs $5.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, respectively.

  • Total verified users on the platform stand at 3.5 million, up 9% from 3.2 million at the quarter ended December 31, 2021.

  • Total funded accounts reached 1,190,000 as of March 31, 2022, up 11% from 1,074,000 at the quarter ended December 31, 2021.

  • Total Assets on Platform decreased to $5.8 billion from $6.0 billion at December 31, 2021.

  • Our headcount increased to 318 as of March 31, 2022, from 250 at December 31, 2021.

All figures are preliminary and unaudited and subject to final adjustment. All amounts are in U.S. dollars, unless otherwise indicated.

The company is also pleased to announce Ashwin Prithipaul as Chief Financial Officer. He comes to Voyager with deep financial leadership experience, including as the former CFO of Galaxy Digital. In conjunction with this, Evan Psaropoulos is moving into a new role as Chief Commercial Officer to build out the Company's revenue diversification as well as partner with the new CFO in creating cost efficiencies.

"In closing, we strongly believe we are in the early stages of global crypto adoption. Voyager remains very well capitalized to strategically grow our business and serve consumers amidst a rapidly evolving crypto landscape," Ehrlich added.
