Other developments in Q3

Zip announced the proposed acquisition of US BNPL Sezzle (ASX:SZL). The deal is projected to considerably improve Zip's scale and offering in the critical US market, speeding growth and creating significant synergies, all of which will help the company achieve EBTDA profitability and positive cash flow in FY24.

On the other side, Zip has made a series of actions to lower its global and people cost base, and these initiatives are likely to save AU$30 million or more in FY23 on the people side.

Moreover, through a fully underwritten institutional placement and a share purchase plan during the quarter, Zip had raised AU$172.7 million. The company currently has an AU$303.4 million in cash and liquidity (excluding $24 million in SPP proceeds received in April).
