Deliveroo PLC is providing an update on guidance for the full year alongside an update on trading for the second quarter of 2021 versus the comparable period in 2020.

  • GTV has grown 76% year on year at the group level in the second quarter of 2021 to £1,739m (81% growth in constant currency). In the same period GTV in the UK and Ireland has grown 87% year on year to £921m (88% growth in constant currency) and GTV in the Group's international segment has grown 65% year-on-year to £818m (75% growth in constant currency).
  • Orders grew 88% year on year at the group level to 78m in the second quarter of 2021. In the same period orders in the UK and Ireland grew 94% year on year to 38m and orders in the Group's international segment grew 83% year-on-year to 40m.

Deliveroo has seen continued strong growth and consumer engagement in H1, and as a result of that plus increased expectations for H2 is increasing the guidance for full year annual GTV growth from between 30% to 40% to between 50% to 60%.

Deliveroo sees an opportunity to make further discretionary investments into growth opportunities in the second half, and as a result of accelerating these investments in H2, along with an expectation that AOV reverts towards pre-COVID levels, we are confirming our full year gross profit margin guidance (as a % of GTV) and expect it to be in the lower half of our previously communicated range.

Deliveroo will be reporting its H1 2021 results on August 11th.

This announcement includes inside information as defined in Article 7 of the Market Abuse Regulation No. 596/2014 and is being released on behalf of Deliveroo PLC by Catherine Sukmonowski, Company Secretary.
