Dave Reports Second Quarter 2022 Results

Achieves Record Quarterly Non-GAAP Operating Revenue and Monthly Transacting Members in Q2 2022

West Hollywood, California, UNITED STATES


LOS ANGELES, Aug. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dave Inc. (Nasdaq: DAVE, DAVEW) (“Dave”), a banking app on a mission to build products that level the financial playing field, today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

“We experienced strong second quarter 2022 results, with Non-GAAP operating revenue growth of 22.4% compared to the prior year period,” said Jason Wilk, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Dave. “We also experienced record high engagement in terms of average Monthly Transacting Members and Transactions Per Monthly Transacting Member and strong new user growth, adding 560,000 net new Members in Q2 2022. Dave is designed as the perfect banking solution for everyday Americans trying to navigate the current inflationary and waning stimulus environment. Additionally, our new ExtraCash value propositions around our $500 ExtraCash limits, Cash back and Instant spending capability with Dave Banking strengthens our position as the industry leader in overdraft. Following the success of our marketing initiatives this summer, we are shifting some near-term investment from new member growth to lifetime value growth in light of the current high cost of capital environment. With this shift, we anticipate we can still maintain strong growth while significantly de-risking our path to profitability without relying on raising additional equity capital.”

Second Quarter 2022 Highlights:

  • Added 560,000 Net New Members, bringing total Members to approximately 7 million
    • 1.54 million Monthly Transacting Members
    • 4.5 Transactions Per Monthly Transacting Member
  • Non-GAAP operating revenues* of $47.0 million, compared to $38.4 million in the second quarter of 2021
  • Non-GAAP variable profit margin* of 39%, compared to 55% in the second quarter of 2021
    • 28-day delinquency rate of 3.71%, a 75 basis point improvement compared to the second quarter of 2021
  • Adjusted EBITDA* loss of $28.5 million, compared to Adjusted EBITDA* loss of $4.5 million in the second quarter of 2021
  • $257.3 million of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, marketable securities and short-term investments as of June 30, 2022

*See reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures at the end of the press release.
