Upstart Holdings Inc UPST shares are falling Wednesday after the company reported worse-than-expected financial results. Here’s a rundown of the report. 

  • Q3 Revenue: $134.56 million missed estimates of $140.26 million
  • Q3 EPS: 5 cent loss missed estimates for a 2 cent loss

Total revenues were down 14% year-over-year. Fee revenue was down 18%. 

Upstart said lending partners originated 114,464 loans across its platform in the quarter, down 34% year-over-year. Conversion on rate requests was 9.5% in the quarter, down from 9.7% in the prior year’s quarter. 

“We’re making rapid progress in building the world’s first and best AI lending platform. Of course we’d prefer to be growing quickly, but this is a time when it’s wise to be operating in a conservative mode,” said Dave Girouard, co-founder and CEO of Upstart.

Upstart expects fourth-quarter revenue of approximately $135 million. The company anticipates an adjusted net loss of approximately $14 million.

Following the print, Piper Sandler analyst Arvind Ramnani maintained Upstart with a Neutral rating and lowered the price target from $35 to $27. Wedbush analyst David Chiaverini reiterated an Underperform rating and maintained a price target of $10.
