Issuing a statement ahead of the release of its results later this month, the company said: “Based on its current view of the business, Blue Apron plans to reaffirm confidence in achieving profitability on an adjusted EBITDA basis both in the first quarter of 2019 and for full year 2019 as it actively pursues the appropriate strategies to create value for its stakeholders.” READ: Blue Apron misses on revenue in 3Q, cuts workforce to reach profitability in 2019 The positive outlook pleased investors who sent Blue Apron shares up 8.7% to $1.13 in pre-market trade on Tuesday.
