Factors to Note

The boom in the e-commerce space led by the coronavirus pandemic is expected to have acted as a tailwind in the fourth quarter.

Also, resurgence in important markets like South Africa and Nigeria is expected to have positively contributed to its quarterly performance.

Moreover, unprecedented demand from brands and sellers is expected to have benefited the company’s to-be-reported quarter’s performance.

Further, solid traction across the FMCG category is likely to have aided volume generation of Jumia Technologies in the quarter under review.

Additionally, partnerships with household care and FMCG brands such as Nestle, Coca Cola, Reckitt Benckiser, Unilever, and P&G may have contributed to its to-be-reported quarter’s performance.

Growing momentum across contactless delivery is expected to have benefited the promotion of JumiaPay, which in turn might have driven the company’s transaction volume in the fourth quarter.

Moreover, its strengthening monetization efforts are likely to have contributed to marketplace revenues in the to-be-reported quarter.

The introduction of stay entertained with Jumia series combined with music streaming services is expected to have benefited the company in the quarter to be reported.

Further, growing momentum of Jumia Food across grocery and convenience retailers on the back of its on-demand platform and logistics infrastructure might get reflected in fourth-quarter results.

However, short-term supply and logistics challenges owing to social distancing induced by the COVID-19 outbreak may have weighed on the to-be-reported quarterly performance.
