SAN MATEO, Calif., September 15, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Roblox Corporation (NYSE: RBLX), a global platform bringing millions of people together through shared experiences, today released certain key metrics for August 2022.
August 2022 Metrics
Daily active users were 59.9 million, up 24% year over year.
Hours engaged were 4.7 billion, up 18% year over year.
Estimated bookings were between $233 million and $237 million, up 5% - 7% year over year1.
Estimated average bookings per daily active user was between $3.89 and $3.96, down 14% - 16% year over year.
Estimated revenue was between $208 million and $211 million, up 22% - 24% year over year.
1The strengthening of the US Dollar against the Euro, British Pound, and other foreign currencies during 2022 has had an adverse impact on bookings. We estimate that the impact of foreign currency fluctuations led to a reduction of around 4% in the bookings year over year growth rate. On a constant currency basis, we estimate bookings growth would have been 9% - 11% year over year.
