Warby Parker released Tuesday financial guidance for 2021 and 2022, which reflects "strong and consistent revenue," the direct-to-consumer eyewear brand said.

"As we look ahead to the remainder of the year and into 2022, we expect these trends to sustain, supported by continued strong customer economics, our expanding retail footprint, as well as continued steady increases in active customers and average order value as we evolve into a holistic vision care company," said CFO Steve Miller.

The New York-based company plans to add 30 to 35 new stores this year bringing the total to 155 to 160 locations. As of 30 June, Warby Parker had 145 shops open.

Financial guidance

The company expects net revenue for the third quarter ending 30 September to fall between $131m- $133m, representing 26% to 28% growth compared with the same period a year ago and up 38% to 40% from the third quarter of 2019.

The adjusted EBITDA margin is estimated to be approximately 4% to 5%.

Net revenue for 2021 is expected to be $532m-$537m, up 35% to 36% year on year and up 44% to 45% compared with 2019.
