Blue Apron to lay off 6% of workforce

Blue Apron to lay off 6% of workforce”

The subscription meal service went public on the New York Stock Exchange in June with a $1.9 billion valuation-its lavish IPO celebration included a lettuce wall. In August, Blue Apron imposed a temporary hiring freeze and fired 14 members of its recruiting team. Finally, SG Americas Securities LLC bought a new position in shares of Blue Apron Holdings in the 2nd quarter valued at approximately $264,000. The firm's 50 day moving average price is $5.38 and its 200-day moving average price is $6.04. The company has market cap of $83.98 million. The company reported ($0.47) earnings per share for the quarter, missing the consensus estimate of ($0.26) by ($0.21).

Revenue moved just 18% higher in the second quarter, a far cry from the 42% surge it posted in the first quarter after more than doubling for all of 2016. Shares of Blue Apron fell 1% in late trading after ending the regular trading day down 1.5%.

A lot of things have tripped up Blue Apron in its short tenure as a publicly traded company.

Several other equities research analysts also recently weighed in on the stock. The company now has an average rating of "Hold" and an average price target of $7.77. The deal showed that the well-capitalized Amazon was serious about dominating online fresh-food sales, and added to the intense competition Blue Apron was already facing in the narrower meal-kit space. The Company offers under a novel business model in which it source, process, store and package meal ingredients and ship them directly to consumers.
