News Synopsis

Snap Inc issued a profit warning on Monday, saying it plans to slow down hiring and spending, helping social media companies make adjustments to adapt to the turmoil in the digital advertising market.

The company said it suffered from a number of problems, including rising inflation, changes to Apple Inc's privacy policy, and the impact of the war in Ukraine.

Based in Santa Monica, California, the company said adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization are likely to fall below the guidance released about a month ago.

Snap inventory fell more than 30% in after-hours buying and selling following the disclosure to below $16 per share. The inventory has fallen over 80% because it hit its all-time excessive in September. Shares in different social media additionally slumped at the Snap announcement. Shares in Facebook owner Meta Platforms Inc. fell more than 7% after the final bell and Pinterest Inc's inventory retreated over 10%.

Snap's profit warning comes after the company misses its first-quarter earnings guidance. Spiegel said last month that the three-month period was more difficult than expected.
