The supplier of pet supplies, Chewy Inc. (CHWY), last week published its results for the third quarter of 2020. The Business came beating Wall Street revenue estimates for the sixth consecutive quarter and did not displayed a decline.
Net revenues rose 45 percent year-on-year to $1.78 billion in the last quarter. While the gross margin remained negative, it improved from -1.8% in Q3 2019 to -6.4% in the third quarter of this year. The net loss was $32.8 million. The company made per share loss of $0.08, which was better than expected. The business intends to expand the path of products for animal health and care, which showed the fastest development, according to Chewy. In the U.S. pet products industry, the COVID-19 crisis has been a strong driver of growth.
During the time of forced self-isolation, many Americans purchased pets and spent large sums on required accessories and treatment. Many of the new owners would almost definitely keep the animals in 2021, ensuring that Chewy will attract a new clientage. Competition continues to be a pressure factor, but the demand continues to expand in general. Changes in many people’s habits, related to a decline in the amount of leisure time and social interaction, can also contribute to a long-term rise in Chewy sales. The company expects net revenues of $1.94 – $1.96 billion in the fourth quarter, with total revenue growth estimated to be 45-46 percent year on year.
