Roblox beats booking estimates on higher in-game spending; shares jump. As more users flocked to Roblox’s online gaming platform to play games like “Adopt Me!” and “Murder Mystery 2,” the firm exceeded quarterly booking predictions on Wednesday, propelling its shares up more than 18% in premarket trade.

After Electronic Arts (EA.O.) increased its yearly prediction last week, the findings are the most recent evidence that video game spending is holding up well in an unpredictable economy.

According to Roblox, the average daily active users increased by 20% to 70.2 million in the September quarter, when kids usually play more games since schools are on vacation.

“Booking increases were most substantial in East Asia and Western Europe. According to finance director Michael Guthrie, the United States and Canada remain the main drivers of growth.

LSEG data shows that net bookings, produced by in-game sales of Roblox’s virtual currency “Robux,” exceeded projections by $839.5 million.

The business also saw a 20% increase in time spent on its platform and a 14% increase in the average number of unique paying customers each month, indicating the success of its advertising expenditures and adding more than 17 experiences to its platform.

Investors worried about a slowdown in the platform after a drop in app downloads found some solace in the data.

According to mobile app data analytics company Apptopia, Roblox’s app had a roughly 11% decline in global installations from the App Store and Google Play in the third quarter—the first decline in a row since 2020.

In contrast to a loss of $297.8 million a year earlier, the corporation reported a net loss of $277.2 million for the quarter that ended on September 30.
