Its adjusted EBITDA loss, meanwhile, came to 2.1 million dollars, compared to its previously reported 5.8 million dollars, while its active buyers rose 9 percent to 1.8 million.

Outlook: Adjusted EBITDA to breakeven in 2024

In a release, ThredUp CEO and co-founder, James Reinhart, said: “We closed out 2023 with another quarter of strong financial performance, demonstrating healthy top-line growth and bottom-line leverage.

“Looking ahead, we are confident that by focusing on strategic growth drivers in the US and applying our proven resale playbook in Europe, we can deliver adjusted EBITDA breakeven on an annual basis in 2024.”

For the first quarter of 2024, ThredUp said it expects revenue to be in the range of 79 million dollars to 81 million dollars, while its gross margin is forecast to be between 68.5 percent to 70.5 percent.
