Etsy Inc. /zigman2/quotes/202790087/composite ETSY -1.97% said Thursday that its first-quarter consolidated gross merchandise sales hit $1.4 billion, up 32% year-on-year. That is in line with expectations of analysts polled by FactSet. In what the online marketplace dubbed a "fireside chat" with management, Etsy said it has "high-quality capital" on its balance sheet and is in a "very strong financial position" to weather the slowdown brought by the coronavirus pandemic. As of Dec. 31, the company had more than $800 million in cash and short-term investments. None of its debt is due before 2023 and the company has a credit line of about $200 million currently untapped, it said. Shares of Etsy see-sawed between gains and losses in the extended session after ending the regular session down 1.8%.
