Dave Grows Member Base As Economic Conditions Tighten

Dave recently reported financial and operational results for Q1 2022. The company provides financial services in the U.S. via its mobile app. DAVE has produced growing revenue, gross profit and increasing member numbers, but operating losses and unrecoverable advances are worsening. Until we learn the net effects of a potential economic downturn on its results, I'm on Hold for DAVE. A Quick Take On Dave Dave (DAVE) recently reported its 1st Quarter 2022 financial and operational results on May 11, highlighting increased revenue, gross profit and growth of its member base. The company provides financial services via its mobile-centric app of the same name. While demand for Dave’s offerings may indeed increase as an economic slowdown or recession occurs, it appears too early to tell how well the firm will be able to produce improved financial results in the near term. DAVE may be a stock to put on a watch list, but for now I’m on Hold for it. Dave Overview West Hollywood-based Dave was founded in 2015 to develop a suite of online personal financial management services for its members. The firm is headed by founder and CEO Jason Wilk, who previously founded WriteyBoard, AllScreen and The company’s primary offerings include: Extra Cash - cash advance Side Hustle - connections to local, flexible jobs Dave Banking - digital checking and demand deposit account The firm has been backed by billionaire Mark Cuban and went public in a SPAC merger deal with VPC Impact Acquisition (VPCB) at an equity value of around $4 billion. The deal closed in January 2022. Dave acquires customers through a variety of online means, including search engine marketing and online partners. The company recently received $100 million in an investment from noted cryptocurrency exchange FTX US, where FTX will serve as the exclusive partner for crypto assets to be introduced on the Dave platform. Dave’s Market & Competition According to a 2020 market research report by Allied Market Research, the market for mobile banking was an estimated $715 million in 2018 and is expected to reach $1.8 billion by 2026. This represents a forecast CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 12.2% from 2019 to 2026. The main drivers for this expected growth are increasing adoption of smartphones for banking and financial services and improved innovation by financial service providers. Also, this report is limited to mobile banking, so the markets for lending or cash advances and other services would be in addition to these figures. While the North America region accounted for significant market share, the Asia Pacific region is expected to produce the highest CAGR by region, at 16.0% from 2019 to 2026.
