Management commentary

Speaking on the results, Marley Spoon CEO, Fabian Siegel said:

In the second quarter we continued to see good growth that was driven by the successful execution of all three pillars of our growth strategy. We continue to acquire subscribers at attractive unit economics, we have increased average order volumes by expanding our offering to our customers and revenue from our newly acquired ready-to-heat business, Chefgood, further drives growth of our Australian segment.

While the business is growing healthily, we were also able to keep margins stable year-over-year,
offsetting operational headwinds and inflation.

Marley Spoon expects further challenges from inflation and supply chain volatility. It reaffirms full-year guidance of "mid-to-high teens YoY net revenue organic growth plus full year contribution from Chefgood; Contribution Margin in-line with 2021 [and]; Operating EBITDA better than [$21 million]".

Marley Spoon is down more than 90% in the past 12 months.
