Snapchat发布盈利报告,首席执行官损失12.2亿美元

Lucinda Shen 2017年05月16日

Sanpachat烧钱太快,亏损扩大,其CEO财富大幅缩水。

Snapchat“阅后即焚”的照片恰如其分地反映了公司首席执行官个人财富的跌宕起伏。

上周三股市收盘后,Snapchat母公司发布了公司上市后的第一份季度财报,结果令人失望。几乎一眨眼,公司身价数十亿的共同创始人就损失了上亿美元。

上周开盘时,Snap股价暴跌23%,26岁的斯皮格尔的个人净资产在一夜之间蒸发了12.2亿美元。根据他向美国证券交易委员会(Securities and Exchange Commission)最近披露的信息,现在他的身价大约为43.5亿美元。

斯皮格尔的净资产主要来源于他在Snap中所持的股份。自公司3月上市以来,股价持续波动。多头和空头势力对于该公司股价持截然相反的态度,多头认为该公司深受青少年喜爱,具有强大的延展性,空头则认为公司盈利不佳,用户基础增长缓慢。

Snapchat上星期三公布的财报证实了空头的观点。它的日活跃用户为1.66亿人,与去年第一季度相比上涨36%,然而公司上上季度的用户增长达到了48%。与此同时,公司该季度收入为1.5亿美元,亏损高达22亿美元,他们烧钱的速度太快了。

斯皮格尔握有公司约44%的股权,他对上述数据并未表现出担忧。在周三的收入电话会议上,当被问及是否惧怕来自Facebook的竞争时, 他笑着回应道:

“雅虎(Yahoo)虽然也有搜索框,但这并不意味着它可以成为谷歌(Google)。”他在这里指的是Facebook新推出的具有增强现实功能的相机应用,这与Snap形成了直接竞争的关系。

不过从历史的角度看,Facebook已经在另一方面击败了Snapchat。

Snap第一次发布季度财报后,次日股市开盘时股价暴跌23%,而Facebook第一次发布季度财报后,股价下跌只有14%。当时,Facebook的首席执行官马克•扎克伯格损失了16亿美元个人资产,身价跌至约119亿美元。(财富中文网)

Snap's disappearing photos are strangely appropriate for the volatility of its CEO's wealth.

After the market's close Wednesday, the parent company of Snapchat announced disappointing earnings for its first quarterly report as a public company. And in the blink of an eye, the billionaire co-founder of Snap (snap, -21.67%) had lost hundreds of millions of dollars.

By the market's open on Thursday, Snap's stock was down 23%, and the 26-year-old had shed about $1.22 billion overnight from his net worth. Spiegel is now worth roughly $4.35 billion, based on his most recent disclosures with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Spiegel's net worth is largely derived from his stake in Snap — a stock that has been highly volatile since going public in early March. The company has sharply divided the bulls and the bears, with bulls pointing to the company's popularity among teens and scalability, while bears have pointed to the the company's lack of profits, and weak growth in its user base.

Snapchat's earnings Wednesday only helped fuel the bears, revealing that it had 166 million daily active users, a 36% increase in the first quarter compared to a year ago. In the quarter before however, the company grew that figure by 48%. Meanwhile, the company has been burning fuel, losing $2.2 billion in the quarter on revenue of $150 million.

Not that Spiegel, who controls roughly 44% of the company, sounds worried. When asked during Snap's earnings call Wednesday if he felt worried about Facebook, Spiegel laughed.

"At the end of the day, just because Yahoo has a search box, it doesn't mean they're Google," he said, referring to Facebook's new camera feature with augmented reality — which puts the company in direct competition with Snap.

Still, there's another way Facebook is already historically beating Snapchat.

While Snap's stock dropped 23% by the market's open following its first-ever quarterly earnings report, Facebook's stock dropped about 14%. CEO Mark Zuckerberg also shed $1.6 billion off his wealth at the time — leaving him with roughly $11.9 billion.
