Over the last few years, the company has made sporadic announcements about its financial performance – with news also emerging from leaked financial information.

In the third quarter of 2018, Airbnb said it had “recognized substantially more than $1 billion in revenue”

Bloomberg previously reported that Airbnb made $93 million in profit on $2.6 billion in revenue during 2017, citing people familiar with the matter, and a year later said it had been profitable in 2018.
