In late trade, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is on course to end its winning streak and record a disappointing decline. At the time of writing, the benchmark index is down 0.6% to 7,487.5 points.
Four ASX shares that are falling more than most today are listed below. Here’s why they are sinking:
A2 Milk Company Ltd (ASX: A2M)
The A2 Milk share price has sunk 12% to $6.02. This follows the release of a full year result that narrowly achieved its downgraded (four times) guidance range. The infant formula company reported a 30.3% decline in revenue to NZ$1.21 billion and a 77.6% fall in EBITDA to NZ$123 million. The company also revealed that it has decided against a capital return and warned that FY 2022 would be challenging.
Appen Ltd (ASX: APX)
The Appen share price has crashed 22% to $10.81 after the release of its half year results. Appen reported a 2% decline in revenue to US$196.6 million and a 14.3% fall in EBITDA to US$27.7 million. Although its EBITDA was a touch ahead of the US$27million analysts at Citi were expecting, the broker noted that its estimate was ~20% lower than consensus estimates. This means it fell well short of what the market was expecting. Appen also announced the acquisition of location data provider Quadrant.
Jumbo Interactive Ltd (ASX: JIN)
The Jumbo share price is down 10% to $16.40. This follows the release of the lottery ticket seller’s full year results. Jumbo reported total transaction value (TTV) growth of 37% to $487 million and revenue growth of 17% to $83.3 million. However, softer margins led to underlying net profit after tax growing only 7% to $28.3 million. Jumbo also announced the acquisition of Canada-based Stride Management.
Link Administration Holdings Ltd (ASX: LNK)
The Link share price is down 12.5% to $4.50. Investors have been selling the financial technology company’s shares following the release of a disappointing full year result. Link reported a 6% year on year decline in revenue to $1.16 billion and an 18% decline in operating net profit after tax and amortisation to $113 million.
