Robinhood Provides Investor Updates
Ahead of management meetings with the investment community, Robinhood Markets, Inc. (“Robinhood,” or the “Company”) today provided early insight into certain November 2023 operating data and posted an investor presentation on the Company’s investor relations website.
November 2023 Early Color
In November 2023, customers contributed roughly $1.4 billion of Net Deposits to Robinhood. Additionally, November Equity Notional Trading Volumes and Options Contracts Traded were roughly in line with October 2023 levels, and November Crypto Notional Trading Volumes were roughly 75% above October 2023 levels. The Company plans to release its full November 2023 Operating Data in the coming weeks.
In addition, the Company provided an investor presentation, which investors can find on its website investors.robinhood.com and is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto.
Net Deposits: We define “Net Deposits” as all cash deposits and asset transfers received from customers, net of reversals, customer cash withdrawals, and other assets transferred out of our platform (assets transferred in or out include debit card transactions, Automated Customer Account Transfer Service (“ACATS”) transfers, and custodial crypto wallet transfers) for a stated period.
Notional Trading Volume: We define "Notional Trading Volume" or "Notional Volume" for any specified asset class as the aggregate dollar value (purchase price or sale price as applicable) of trades executed in that asset class over a specified period of time.
Options Contracts Traded: We define "Options Contracts Traded" as the total number of options contracts bought or sold over a specified period of time. Each contract generally entitles the holder to buy or sell (as applicable) 100 shares of the underlying stock.
The information in this Current Report is unaudited and preliminary, based on Robinhood’s estimates, and subject to completion of financial closing procedures. Final operating data for November 2023 and results for the most recent fiscal quarter, as reported in our upcoming monthly metrics release and in Robinhood’s quarterly and annual filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), respectively, might vary from the information in this Current Report.
Robinhood uses the "Overview" tab of its Investor Relations website (accessible at investors.robinhood.com/overview) and its Newsroom (accessible at newsroom.aboutrobinhood.com), as means of disclosing information to the public in a broad, non-exclusionary manner for purposes of the SEC’s Regulation Fair Disclosure (Reg. FD). Investors should routinely monitor those web pages, in addition to Robinhood’s press releases, SEC filings, and public conference calls and webcasts, as information posted on them could be deemed to be material information.
The information furnished with Item 7.01, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act"), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any other filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
