On August 30, 2021, after the market closed, Stone announced its second quarter 2021 financial results, reporting an 8.1% year-over-year decrease in revenue “mainly due to adjustments in credit fair value and significantly lower credit disbursements.” Further stating, the “credit business remains in the early stages and we made some mistakes in our execution, especially not foreseeing how the malfunctioning of the registry system could harm our business. So we decided to take a cautious approach and implemented some prudent actions, like temporarily stopping the disbursement of credit and increasing coverage for potential future losses, which impacted our reported results for the quarter.” Likewise, StoneCo thinks it could take three to six months before it can resume operations as normal.
On this news, StoneCo's stock price fell $2.11 per share, to close at $49.50 per share on August 30, 2021.
