Acknowledging a challenging lending environment, Upstart’s Chief Executive, Dave Girouard, emphasized that the company’s achievements in 2023 demonstrated improved efficiency.

“With our numbers, it will become evident that we’ve not only become more efficient in 2023 but also laid a solid foundation to thrive amid diverse economic conditions,” Girouard stated optimistically.

Q1 Outlook

For the first quarter, Upstart projects revenue of approximately $125 million, falling short of analysts’ expectations of $152.3 million.

In terms of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA), the company anticipates a loss of $25 million. Conversely, the FactSet consensus had estimated an adjusted EBITDA loss of approximately $5 million.

The release of the report halted Upstart’s shares after Tuesday’s market close.
