ASX reporting season went into overdrive this week as a flock of S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) shares handed in their results.

With a flurry of news and ASX announcements, it can be hard keeping up.

So, here's the lowdown on some of the biggest movers from ASX reporting season this week. 

You'll find links to our relevant Foolish earnings coverage for further reading.

The ASX winners

The Nearmap Ltd (ASX: NEA) share price soared above the clouds this week, propelling 30%. While the aerial imaging company lifted the lid on its FY22 results, it was a takeover bid that had the market excited. 

The Temple & Webster Group Ltd (ASX: TPW) share price was also on fire, lighting up 30% on Tuesday before eventually running out of steam to post a 7% gain across the week. Investors cheered as the online furniture retailer delivered 31% revenue growth in FY22 while its earnings margin came in at the high range of guidance.

The IPH Ltd (ASX: IPH) share price also hit a home run, finishing the week 17% higher. The market appears pleased with the company's global ambitions. Alongside its FY22 results, IPH announced a $387 million acquisition of Smart & Biggar, a leading Canadian intellectual property firm. This marks IPH's first expansion beyond the Asia Pacific region.

The Brambles Limited (ASX: BXB) share price also ended the week in the winners' column, pumping out a 12% gain. The logistics group shook off global supply chain challenges to deliver 9% sales growth in FY22, ahead of guidance, and boosted its final dividend.

Last but certainly not least, the BHP Group Ltd (ASX: BHP) share price punched in a 7% weekly rise, fortifying its crown as the ASX's largest company. The Big Australian beat expectations in FY22 as strong cash flow performance led to a juicy final dividend of US$1.75 per share.

The ASX losers

While Temple & Webster soared, the pain continued for fellow ASX e-commerce share Redbubble Ltd (ASX: RBL). The Redbubble share price suffered a steep 40% intraday fall on Wednesday after marketplace revenue dropped 13% and earnings reversed in FY22.

The Pact Group Holdings Ltd (ASX: PGH) share price also found itself under pressure, packaging up a weekly loss of 19%. COVID and supply chain challenges contributed to a 25% fall in the company's FY22 underlying profit. Pact Group also slashed its final dividend by 75%.

The week wasn't kind to the TPG Telecom Ltd (ASX: TPG) share price either, descending 13%. The ASX telco reported soft first-half results, impacted by restructuring and rising cost pressures.

The Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Ltd (ASX: BEN) share price also had a week to forget, stumbling 11% as investors were unimpressed by the company's FY22 results. The ASX bank's commentary around its net interest margin may have spooked the market.

Finally, the Beach Energy Ltd (ASX: BPT) share price failed to fire, slipping 8% across the week. The company's FY22 profits fell short of expectations and the ASX oil share warned investors that unit field operating costs would likely head north in FY23.
