Revenue = £12.8m
Pre-tax loss = £14.8m
Net cash generated from operating activities = negative £33.3m
User base = close to 3 million (number of active users is going to be around one eighth of that total)
USD 3bn worth of transactions per month
#people signed up to Metal in last month = 80,000
They predicted a quadrupling of revenues for the next fiscal year, based on the rate of signups for Metal, amongst other things. The big advantage of metal (and premium) users, apart from the subscription revenues, is that they are far more likely to be active users than those on Basic cards - for which the number of active users is below 10%. If you’re paying £12.99/month, or whatever it is in your country, you’re much less likely to leave the card in your cupboard drawer than someone who just got the basic card.
The numbers above are obviously small potatoes in comparison with the money raised from VCs and other investors - £250m in the last round.
Note that this last financing round was led by DST Global, which is run by Yuri Milner, a Russian venture capitalist. Clearly Nikolai has some useful connections!
