On February 1, 2022, PayPal reported disappointing fourth quarter and full year 2021 results. Specifically, PayPal reported that its Net New Active Accounts were only 49 million for 2021, less than the guidance of 50 million it initially provided in February 2021. The Company admitted that “in connection with the increased use of cash incentive campaigns throughout 2021, [it] identified 4.5 million accounts that “it” believes(s) were illegitimately created,” and that as a result the Company changed course on some of its customer acquisition strategies including incentive-led campaigns in the fourth quarter. Further, because the Company was evolving its customer acquisition and engagement strategy, PayPal now expects only 15-20 million net new customer accounts for 2022 and that the Company “no longer believe(s) that the 750 million medium-term account aspiration [it] set last year, is appropriate.”
On this news, PayPal’s stock price fell $43.23 per share, or 24.59%, to close at $132.57 per share on February 2, 2022.
