"We're pleased with our results for the third quarter and first nine months of 2021. Apps continued to show strength with double-digit organic growth, and our themes business continued to be highly cash generative and highly strategic given its top-of-funnel relationship with Shopify merchants," said Chris Sparling, chief executive officer. "Our portfolio of companies is well positioned to continue providing critical tools and services to help merchants this holiday session and beyond by providing best-in-class storefronts, increasing customer engagement, leveraging social media and improving conversion rates. More recently, we appointed David Charron as our new chief financial officer. Dave brings three decades of relevant experience and has already become an integral part of our leadership team. We're thrilled to have him on board."
"We're continuing to execute on our growth strategy and proud of our collective accomplishments in an increasingly uncertain environment for merchants, characterized by supply chain bottlenecks, higher input costs and recent advertising infrastructure changes," added Alex Persson, president. "Our cash on hand, available liquidity and strong cash flow generation remains a critical advantage, particularly as the valuation environment for attractive portfolio additions continues to normalize. As always, we continue to invest for the long term across our portfolio companies and at Wecommerce."
Management will host a conference call and webcast on Nov. 22, 2021, at 2 p.m. PT (5 p.m. ET), to discuss its financial results. Chief executive officer Chris Sparling, president Alex Persson and chief financial officer David Charron will host the call, followed by a question-and-answer period.
An archived webcast of the conference call will be accessible on Wecommerce's investor relations page.
Wecommerce's unaudited interim consolidated financial statements and management discussion and analysis for Q3 2021 are available on the company's website or on SEDAR.
