What Happened:

Shares of online freelance marketplace Fiverr (NYSE: FVRR) jumped 10.9% in the after-market session after the company reported first-quarter revenue that narrowly beat analysts' estimates. Fiverr also exceeded projections in key areas, including free cash flow, adjusted EBITDA, and earnings per share (EPS). Management reminded the market that it was the "highest quarterly adjusted EBITDA with double digit adjusted EBITDA margin, even as Q1 seasonally marks the heaviest investment outlay across the entire year." The company also raised full year guidance for revenue and adjusted EBITDA, both of which were better than expectations at the midpoint. Additionally, next quarter's revenue and adjusted EBITDA similarly beat. This was a nice "beat and raise" quarter for the company which should leave investors optimistic.
