Annualized Monthly Revenue surpasses $100 million marking record quarter for leading family safety app; Acquisition of Jiobit in final stages
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Life360, Inc. (ASX:360) today announced a milestone quarter for the company surpassing 1 million subscribers (Paying Circles), $100 million in Annualized Monthly Revenue, and the company crossed the $1B market valuation on strong share price growth. Life360 also announced the signing of definitive agreements for the acquisition of Jiobit, the Chicago-based provider of wearable location devices, strengthening the company’s position as the leading family safety platform and accelerating its entrance into new markets, namely children under ten, small pets, and seniors.
“The last 18 months have shed a bright light on the need for family safety. Our confidence that a COVID recovery would drive a return to significant growth is being borne out in these needs,” said Chris Hulls, founder and CEO of Life360. “This incredible growth is a clear indicator that our expanded product offerings and move to a membership model are resonating with families around the world and strengthens our belief that our product roadmap and funding path were the right decisions for our company.”
In addition to the financial milestones, Life360 also reached No. 1 in the App Store charts in more than 11 countries during the last quarter. Driven by a viral surge in downloads from teens primarily through TikTok, Life360 delivered a record quarter of Monthly Active Users (MAU) ending the quarter with 32.3 million.
“The turnaround we’ve had with our teen community is nothing short of amazing,” continued Hulls. “It was risky, but listening, engaging and working with this community to help shape the technology is paying off in spades.”

Accordingly, the CDIs, have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act or the laws of any state or other jurisdiction in the US. As a result of relying on the Regulation S exemption, the CDIs are ‘restricted securities’ under Rule 144 of the Securities Act.

To enforce the above transfer restrictions, all CDIs issued bear a FOR Financial Product designation on the ASX. This designation restricts any CDIs from being sold on ASX to US persons excluding QIBs. However, you are still able to freely transfer your CDIs on ASX to any person other than a US person who is not a QIB.
