Block, a financial services company based in San Francisco, has announced improved financial results for the second quarter of the year. The company managed to narrow its loss to $125.8 million, or 20 cents per share, compared to $209.3 million, or 36 cents per share, in the same period last year. Adjusted earnings exceeded analysts’ expectations at 39 cents per share.

Block’s revenue also showed promising growth, reaching $5.53 billion, up from $4.4 billion. This surpassed analysts’ forecasts of $5.1 billion.

The company saw a notable increase in transaction-based revenue, which rose by 11% year-over-year to $1.64 billion in the quarter. Subscription and services-based revenue experienced even stronger growth, soaring by 33% from the previous year to $1.46 billion.

Block also highlighted the success of its Square Banking products, such as Square Credit Card and its new loan options. The company stated that both offerings have been well-received, especially among larger sellers who appreciate the flexibility and ability to reinvest in their business.

These positive results indicate Block’s continued momentum and its commitment to providing valuable financial services to its customers.
