CEO Piotr Szulczewski said second-quarter results did not meet company expectations. He said improving the performance of the app will drive new user growth, retention and profitability going forward.

"Overall, we expected user retention to improve now that we have more reliable logistics, but instead retention declined," the company said in its shareholder letter. “Globally we saw a 13% reduction in app installs and a 15% reduction in average time spent on our platform in Q2."

WISH Price Action: WISH shares are down 18% to $7.69 in after-hours trading.
