- Boku reported wider losses as a surge in costs offset a sharp uptick in revenue on the back of rising payment volume and monthly user growth.

For the six months ended 30 June 2019, pre-tax losses widened to £ 2.5m from £0.56m a year earlier, while revenue increased 39% to $23.5m.

The company said it would need a 'good' second half in order to deliver on guidance for $52m of revenue, gross margins of 93% in payments and 40% in identity, leading to adjusted earnings (EBITDA) growth of between 45% and 50%.
