Zoom’s customer base soars 458% as it beats earnings estimates

Bank review, current USBR score and consumer report

No need to check the audio, Wall Street can hear Zoom loud and clear.

After the close of trading on Monday, Zoom Video Communications reported a stellar second quarter. The San Jose-based tech company’s second quarter revenue topped $664 million, up 355% year-over-year. And that beat analysts revenue estimate of $501 million, according to Refinitiv.

Zoom reported an earnings per share of $0.92, almost doubling analyst estimate of $0.45. And its paying customer base—those with at least 10 employees—grew to 370,200, up 458% year-over-year.

The stock, which trades under the ticker “ZM,” finished the day up 8.6% to $325. But after reporting, Zoom’s extended trading price climbed another 9%.

The company is among the top business benefactors of the pandemic, which has displaced millions of workers from office buildings and sped up digital transformation. Year-to-date the stock is up a staggering 373%.

“Organizations are shifting from addressing their immediate business continuity needs to supporting a future of working anywhere, learning anywhere, and connecting anywhere on Zoom’s video-first platform,” Zoom founder and CEO Eric Yuan wrote in the earning report.

And the move towards WFH isn’t going away anytime soon. A Fortune-SurveyMonkey poll between July 17 and 21 found 46% of all U.S. workers were remote at some point since the onset of the pandemic. And 83% of those remote workers would like to work fully or partially remote through at least the end of the year.

Zoom increased its revenue outlook to $2.39 billion for fiscal year 2021, which would represent a 284% increase over fiscal year 2020.
