Matterport Working on a Big Announcement?8180

Hi All,

Is Matterport working on a big announcement?

Usually they go silent for a couple of weeks before an announcement. For example, has anyone received an eblast, newsletter, etc. in the last two weeks? I didn't think so.

So, just wondering if Matterport is due for a big announcement?

Best,

Dan

I am still getting Matterport orders, but most of them come when I bundle in the photography and videography too.

Is it possible that Matterport is affected by the same trends that are affecting Zillow?

✓ "Sales of new homes as well as previously owned homes have been slowing from a year ago," according to the following Fortune article yesterday.
✓ "Tax reform enacted late last year has also reduced tax incentives to buy homes," also according to the same news article.

Fortune (6 November 2018) Zillow Stock Plunges 20% as a Cooling Housing Market Stymies Its Risky Expansion Plans

According to this Fortune article:

"After nearly a decade of recovery and slow growth, the U.S. housing market has been heading into a slowdown in 2018. Not only are mortgage rates rising, but housing prices have been climbing about twice as fast as average incomes. Sales of new homes as well as previously owned homes have been slowing from a year ago. Tax reform enacted late last year has also reduced tax incentives to buy homes."

"Those trends have hurt the stock performance of Zillow and Redfin alike. At its low point late Tuesday, Zillow was down 51% from its 52-week high, while Redfin was down 53% from its high point in the past year."

Joel who edited the newsletter, left MP a few weeks ago. No other big news. Carry On.

@TrustedPhotoDC

Perhaps Matterport could just send the WGAN Forum Newsletter in interim?

Carry On.
