SAN FRANCISCO, August 4, 2021 — Fastly, Inc. (NYSE: FSLY), provider of an edge cloud platform, today posted its financial results for the second quarter 2021 in its shareholder letter on the Investor Relations section of its website at https://investors.fastly.com.
“In our second quarter, we made great strides with key components of our strategy, with important additions to our Compute@Edge and security offerings. Additionally, we made significant operational changes that better position us to manage through challenges and drive long-term growth,” said Joshua Bixby, CEO of Fastly. “During the second quarter, we also managed through a significant outage that impacted our Q2 results and will have an impact on our Q3 and full year outlook. We have a couple of customers, one of them being a top 10 customer, that have yet to return their traffic to the platform. We also had several customers delay the launch of certain projects, which delayed the timing of traffic coming onto our platform.”
Fastly management will host a live Q&A session today at 2:00 p.m. PT / 5:00 p.m. ET to discuss financial results and outlook.
