Block (NYSE:SQ) shares fell more than 6% after-hours despite the company’s reported Q2 results, with both EPS of $0.18 and total net revenue of $4.4 billion coming in better than the consensus estimates of $0.16 and $4.33 billion, respectively.

Q2 total net revenue was down 6% year-over-year, and excluding bitcoin revenue, total net revenue was up 34% year-over-year to $2.62 billion. Excluding bitcoin revenue and revenue from the buy-now-pay-later (BNPL) platform, total net revenue was up 23% year-over-year to $2.41 billion.

Square revenue grew 32% year-over-year to $1.73 billion. On a three-year CAGR basis, Square revenue grew 26%. Cash App revenue declined 21% year-over-year to $2.62 billion. On a three-year CAGR basis, Cash App revenue grew 116%. Excluding bitcoin and the BNPL platform, Cash App revenue grew 21% year-over-year to $732 million.

Transaction-based revenue was up 20% year-over-year to $1.48 billion. Subscription and services-based revenue was up 60% year-over-year to $1.09 billion.

For Q3/22, the company believes three-year compound annual growth rates from 2019 through 2022 will help reflect underlying trends in each ecosystem, given the variability in year-over-year and two-year CAGR comparisons due to COVID-19.

For the month of July, Square GPV is expected to be up 18% year-over-year. On a three-year CAGR basis, GPV growth is expected to be 23% in July.

For the month of July, Cash App gross profit, excluding the BNPL platform, is expected to grow on a year-over-year and three-year CAGR basis, driven by growth in monthly transacting actives, engagement across the company’s ecosystem, and inflows into Cash App.

Comment Guidelines

We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.

Perpetrators of spam or abuse will be deleted from the site and prohibited from future registration at Investing.com’s discretion.
