Toast Revenue Guidance Narrowing

Toast adjusted its full-year 2023 revenue projection to $3.83 billion to $3.86 billion, compared to the previous range of $3.81 billion to $3.87 billion. Despite the revision, Toast reported annualized recurring revenue run rate of $1.22 billion for the third quarter, marking a 40% year-over-year increase, while its loss per share narrowed to 9 cents from the 19 cents reported in the same quarter the previous year.

 

BTIG analysts Andrew Harte and Thomas Smith highlighted a same-store sales headwind affecting revenue, attributing it to a macro factor beyond management’s control. They noted the company’s pullback in the forecast for fourth-quarter software-as-a-service average revenue per user growth from 10% to mid-to-high single digits. Conversely, William Blair analysts led by Stephen Sheldon expressed optimism, emphasizing Toast’s strong growth despite softening top-line trends.
