Shares of Whispir Ltd (ASX: WSP) headed south on Thursday and were trading 14.9% lower at $1.25 apiece at the close of trade.

The Whispir share price ran deeper into the red through the session, gliding off its intraday high of $1.49 from the start of the trading day.

Zooming out, it’s been a difficult year for the tech company. Shares have suffered heavy losses in the last 12 months, and the downside has extended well into 2022.

What was up with the Whispir share price today?

Investors were bidding down the price of Whispir shares after the company released its activities and cash flow report for the three months ending 31 March 2022.

In its report, annualised recurring revenue (ARR) was up 24.1% year on year to $62.4 million and free cash outflows settled at $5.6 million.

Whispir also added another 82 customers for the period, which supported an 82% gain in cash receipts year on year to almost $20 million.

The company noted it was on track to meet FY22 guidance of $68 million at the upper end.

However, investors don’t appear to have carried the joy through to today’s session, with trading volume occurring at more than six times the 4-week average, all while the share price tracked down.

Meanwhile, the S&P/ASX All Technology Index (ASX: XTX) was also tracking lower today and is sitting 17 basis points down at 2,269.

Whilst it shrugged off sector weakness yesterday, it doesn’t appear to have been the same in today’s session for Whispir.

Over the last three months, the Whispir share price has trailed the broader tech sector, as seen below.
