NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Groupon (GRPN - Get Report) shares are jumping 1.58% to $4.50 in after-hours trading on Thursday immediately following the company's better-than-expected 2016 first quarter results.
The global e-commerce marketplace operator reported a loss of 1 cent, compared to Wall Street's expectations of a loss of 2 cents a share.
Revenue of $732 million also beat projections of $718.36 million.
A year ago, the company earned 3 cents a share on revenue of $750.36 million.
"Our business fundamentals and operational efficiency keep improving as our marketplace matures to become the largest and most effective of its kind," CEO Rich Williams.
Despite the earnings beat, gross billings fell 5% year-over-year to $1.47 billion and sales overall were adversely impacted by foreign exchange rates.
Along with the financial results, the company named Mike Randolfi as CFO. Most recently he served as CFO of Orbitz Worldwide (OWW).
Separately, TheStreet Ratings currently has a "Sell" Rating on the stock with a letter grade of D.
The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its unimpressive growth in net income, disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow, generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself and feeble growth in its earnings per share.
