Zoom (ZM) Financial Results: Analysis

Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (ZM) reported Q1 FY 2022 earnings that significantly beat analysts' expectations. Adjusted earnings per share (EPS) surpassed analyst forecasts, rising 560.0% year over year (YOY). Zoom's revenue came in above analyst estimates, climbing 191.4% YOY. The number of customers contributing 100,000 in 12-month trailing (TTM) revenue also exceeded analyst estimates. The company's shares fell as much as 3% in after-hours trading. Over the past year, Zoom's shares have provided a total return of 60.5%, well above the S&P 500's total return of 37.5%.

ZM Customers Contributing Over $100K in 12-month Trailing Revenue

The number of Zoom's customers contributing over $100,000 in TTM revenue rose 160.0% YOY. The size of this customer group provides a measure of two key capabilities: Zoom's ability to scale its offerings to its users' needs, and the company's ability to attract larger organizations to its platform. Large customers are likely to be a more stable source of revenue compared to individuals or smaller organizations, who may switch more frequently to other video conferencing services. Securing contracts with large enterprises will be especially important as the global economy emerges from the pandemic and as many people begin returning to their company offices to work.
