Adore Beauty share price sparkles on glamorous quarter

  • Revenue up 9% on prior corresponding period (pcp) to $42.7 million
  • Active customers increased 7% to 880,000

  • On track for private label launch in fourth-quarter FY22
  • Loyalty members contributed more than 60% of total revenue.

What else happened during the quarter?

Adore Beauty shareholders have endured a disastrous past month, with the share price down 20%. A shot of good news from the cosmetics company today is just what they needed, it seems.

Today, Adore revealed a relatively strong quarter as the economy continues to reopen. Booking $42.7 million during the three-month period, the online retailer has now taken its compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to 26%.

Notably, the company witnessed promising signs from its strategic initiatives during the quarter. For example, Adore Beauty's native app accounted for more than 10% of revenue — strengthening engagement and conversion.

What did management say?

On the back of the solid result, Adore Beauty CEO Tennealle O'Shannessy said:

Adore Beauty has delivered a strong quarterly performance in a reopening environment, a very pleasing outcome given the 47% revenue growth recorded in the PCP, and having to navigate some supply chain pressures during the period. Importantly, our loyalty-focused strategic initiatives are enabling us to convert new customers to loyal, valuable returning customers.

What's next?

For investors looking to get a clue on what the next quarter might look like, the update provided little insight. However, the company did note it plans to launch its first private label products in the upcoming quarter.
