EBay boosted its second-quarter-earnings guidance, on surging online sales during pandemic-induced lockdown.
The e-commerce company now projects second-quarter revenue to range from $2.75 billion to $2.8 billion. That is a more optimistic outlook compared with an April estimate of $2.38 billion to $2.48 billion.
For the second quarter, EBay now expects non-GAAP earnings per share of $1.02 to $1.06, compared to April forecast of 73 cents to 80 cents.
On full-year guidance, EBay did not release any figures, but said it expects the full-year performance to improve from the ranges it mentioned on April 29.
“Demand strength is driven by increased organic traffic, better marketing efficiency, and higher platform conversion”, the company said.
