Lightspeed POS Inc. sees Q4 2021 revenue of $68-70 million.

Lightspeed's third quarter results were strong, but we remain cautious in the short-term given an increase in government-mandated lockdowns in several of our key geographies across North America and Europe. Prolonged lockdowns can increase churn, negatively impact GTV, delay purchase decisions and increase service suspension requests. In addition fiscal Q4 is traditionally a seasonally slow quarter for GTV, and the comparative periods have historically been slow GTV quarters for ShopKeep and Upserve as well. Given the increasing proportion of our revenue generated from Lightspeed Payments, we expect seasonal trends in GTV to have a greater influence on overall revenue. Reflecting this seasonality and our view of the risks and uncertainties related to COVID-19, Lightspeed anticipates revenue and adjusted EBITDA to be in the following ranges:

Fourth Quarter 2021

  • Revenues of $68 - $70 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss of approximately $12 - $14 million.
