Why Unity Software Shares Are Plunging After Hours

Unity Software Inc U shares are trading lower in Tuesday’s after-hours session after the company reported financial results and issued guidance below analyst estimates. 

Unity said first-quarter revenue grew 36% year-over-year to $320.1 million, which came in below the $321.49 million estimate, according to data from Benzinga Pro. The company reported an adjusted loss of 8 cents per share, which was in line with estimates.

“Unity delivered record quarterly revenue in the first quarter of 2022, the highest in the company’s history, up 36% compared with the first quarter of 2021, with Create over-performing at 65% year-on-year growth, offset by slower growth in Operate,” said John Riccitiello, president and CEO of Unity.

The Unity CEO said the company plans to focus on accelerating the growth of Operate in the short term.

Unity expects second-quarter revenue to be between $290 million and $295 million versus the $361 million estimate. The company expects full-year 2022 revenue to be between $1.35 billion and $1.45 billion versus the $1.5 billion estimate.

The stock was down 36.9% in after-hours at $30.27 at press time.
