May 2, 2024

SAN FRANCISCO, May 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Opendoor Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq: OPEN), a leading e-commerce platform for residential real estate transactions, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2024. Opendoor’s first quarter 2024 financial results and management commentary can be accessed through the Company’s shareholder letter on the “Quarterly Reports” page of Opendoor’s investor relations website at https://investor.opendoor.com.

“Our first quarter results exceeded the high end of our guidance across revenue, Contribution Margin, and Adjusted EBITDA. Our product continues to resonate with customers, as we more than doubled our market share year-over-year and continued to deliver industry-leading seller NPS. We entered the second quarter with strong momentum, and we are meaningfully ramping acquisitions in 2024. Led by our operating principles of focus, execution, and results, we remain on track to durably rescale the business in 2024 while delivering Contribution Margin within our target annual range,” said Carrie Wheeler, CEO of Opendoor.

Wheeler continued, “The proposed NAR settlement underscores a growing consumer preference for an alternative approach to the traditional home selling and buying process – one that gives them more control. As the largest digital platform for residential real estate transactions, Opendoor was built for this moment, and we remain steadfast in our mission to power life’s progress, one move at a time. We’re shaping the future of real estate, empowering consumers to sell and buy with ease through a simple, certain, and transparent offering.”

Second Quarter 2024 Financial Outlook

  • 2Q24 Contribution Profit¹ guidance of $75 million to $85 million

  • 2Q24 Adjusted EBITDA¹ guidance of $(35) million to $(25) million

¹ Opendoor has not provided a quantitative reconciliation of forecasted Contribution Profit (Loss) to forecasted GAAP gross profit (loss) nor a reconciliation of forecasted Adjusted EBITDA to forecasted GAAP net income (loss) within this press release because the Company is unable, without making unreasonable efforts, to calculate certain reconciling items with confidence. These items include, but are not limited to, inventory valuation adjustment and equity securities fair value adjustment. These items, which could materially affect the computation of forward-looking GAAP gross profit (loss) and net income (loss), are inherently uncertain and depend on various factors, some of which are outside of the Company’s control.
