Voyager Digital Reports Revenue of US$175 Million for Fiscal 2021 and Provides Business Update
Voyager Digital Ltd. ("Voyager" or the "Company") (TSX: VOYG; OTCQX: VYGVF; FRA: UCD2), one of the fastest-growing, publicly traded cryptocurrency platforms in the United States, today announced it has filed its full-year consolidated financials for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021 and is pleased to provide shareholders with a business and operational update.
“Fiscal 2021 was a breakout year for Voyager, positioning our platform to be a leading player in the digital asset arena as crypto and related blockchain technologies are increasingly embraced by the mainstream," said Steve Ehrlich, Voyager's CEO and Co-founder. "Voyager continues to deliver noteworthy performance through verified user and funded account growth punctuated by providing users with a transparent, safe, secure and trusted personal cryptocurrency platform. We continued to see significant net new funded accounts and net new asset inflows on the platform and as we add more product extensions, we believe the ability to leverage our growing user base will accelerate our revenue growth and provide diversification to our revenue mix.”
Fiscal Year 2021 Financial and Business Milestones:
All figures are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise noted.
- Total revenue increased to $175 million, from $1 million in FY20
- Operating Income of $56 million, compared to an Operating Loss of $11 million in FY20
- Total Verified Users grew to 1.75 million, up from 86,000 at June 30, 2020
- Total Funded Accounts grew to 665,000 from 23,000 at June 30, 2020
- Total Assets Under Management grew to $2.6 billion from $35 million at June 30, 2020
- Added to our leadership team in key areas
- Increased our headcount to 141 at June 30, 2021, from 36 at June 30, 2020
- Invested in and developed a strategic partnership with Blockdaemon to deliver enhanced staking capabilities
“We are seeing industry volumes rebound off extreme midsummer weakness, and are excited about the prospects ahead,” continued Ehrlich. “As we started to see lower than expected volumes in the summer months, we turned our attention to enhancing our rewards programs as a customer acquisition and retention tool. In the September quarter, we started focusing on account acquisition as our key performance metric. Voyager remains dedicated to growth in funded accounts and deposits and you can expect we will be more aggressive with both our marketing spend as well as our rewards offerings to accelerate growth. As we diversify our revenue streams to enhance the long-term value of each customer and expand our market opportunity internationally, we believe the best is yet to come for the Voyager platform.”
Voyager will be announcing the results of its first quarter ending September 30th on or about November 15th, and will provide further commentary on its second quarter ending December 31st based on current trends and a very robust October which validates its strategy of total focus on account and deposit growth.
