Baron Funds made the following comment about DLocal Limited (NASDAQ:DLO) in its Q3 2022 investor letter:
"DLocal Limited (NASDAQ:DLO) is a Uruguay-based financial technology company that facilitates cross-border payments in emerging markets for large global merchants such as Google, Microsoft, and Netflix. Despite posting strong results for the second quarter, with payment volume growth of 67% yearover year, revenue growth of 72%, net revenue retention of 157%, and adjusted EBITDA margins of 38%, shares of DLocal declined 21% as the company maintained its full-year guidance implying a decline in its net revenue retention rate and EBITDA margins in the back half of the year. We are not concerned with sacrificing near-term profits in order to drive longer duration growth, and we retain conviction in DLocal’s ability to continue benefiting from the growing purchasing power of an expanding middle class in emerging markets for years to come."
