Revenue grew 9.1% to $81.3 million year-over-year but fell short of Street expectations of $83 million. The company’s paid tickets increased more than 14% to 27 million.

Looking ahead, the San Francisco-based company projected second-quarter revenue to land between $74 million and $78 million, which would miss analysts’ estimates of $82.4 million even at the high end of the range.
