Figs (NYSE:FIGS) stock is falling hard on Friday following the release of the lifestyle company’s earnings report for the first quarter of 2022.

The damage to FIGS stock comes after the company reported adjusted earnings per share of 5 cents. That’s below the 6 cents per share that Wall Street was looking for. It’s also a drop from the 8 cents per share reported during the same time last year.

Not helping matters is Figs’ revenue of $110.1 million for the first quarter of the year. That’s a major miss next to analysts’ estimate of $117.33 million. This is despite it increasing 26.4% year-over-year from $87.08 million.

Another factor weighing FIGS stock down today is its 2022 outlook. The company cut its revenue guidance from between $550 million and $560 million to between $510 million and $530 million. It cites supply chain issues as the reason for this. It’s worth mentioning that Wall Street is expecting revenue of $556.53 million for the full year of 2022.

Trina Spear, co-founder and co-CEO of Figs, is trying to remain positive.

“Looking ahead, we are well positioned to fuel profitable growth for the years to come due to our strong foundation, recession resistant industry and deep understanding of the healthcare community.”

While that sounds nice, FIGS is still dropping alongside heavy trading today. This has more than 8 million shares on the move as of this writing. That’s well above the company’s daily average trading volume of 2.7 million shares.

FIGS stock is down 24.8% as of Friday morning.
