Zoom shares soared 41% on Tuesday, lifting the videoconferencing software company’s market cap to $129 billion after revenue and earnings blew past analysts’ estimates.
The rally added $37 billion of market value to Zoom, which went public in April 2019 and was worth about $16 billion after its initial day of trading. The company has been perhaps the biggest corporate beneficiary of the coronavirus pandemic, as employers across the globe have turned to the video chat technology to stay connected with staffers, customers and partners.
Revenue in the period surged 355% to $663.5 million, topping the $500.5 million average estimate of analysts, according to Refinitiv. Adjusted earnings per share of 92 cents more than doubled analysts’ estimates for profit or 45 cents a share. Zoom’s net income for the period was more than triple its profit for the last six quarters combined.
The number of customers producing $100,000 or more in annual revenue for Zoom more than doubled from a year earlier to 988. CEO Eric Yuan highlighted Exxon, Activision and ServiceNow on the earnings call.
