According to Refinitiv data, the company’s sales for the quarter ended March 31 were $242.9 million, above analysts’ projections of $241.0 million.

Bumble’s first-quarter revenue growth was 15.7%, its smallest since going public in February 2021. In addition, a $150 million Class A Common stock buyback scheme was launched.

Bumble’s “Compliments” function, which lets users write a message before connecting, has helped it deal with high inflation and rising interest rates. From 3 million a year earlier, the reporting quarter had 3.5 million paid users.

According to Refinitiv data, Austin, Texas-based firm predicted current-quarter sales between $254 million and $258 million, with the midpoint at $256 million. Analysts expected $256.63 million.
