“We are pleased to report another record quarter, with revenue more than doubling from the same period a year ago. As demand to digitise the built world continues to rise, our subscriber base has increased exponentially, bolstered by big advances across our iPhone, Android, and Enterprise platform and service offerings,” said RJ Pittman, Chief Executive Officer of Matterport. “This quarter once again reflects our enduring, strong execution – across product innovation, expanding service offerings, extended global reach, and most importantly, adding to our world-class talent base. We have also made excellent progress on our proposed merger with Gores Holdings VI, and the closing is on track for early in the third quarter. This transaction enables Matterport to more aggressively achieve significant global scale as a public company. Matterport has been digitising the built world for a decade and we are very well-positioned to capitalise on this enormous opportunity in front of us,” Pittman added.

Further, we believe our innovation in digitising the built world will continue to support strong future growth.”
