CFO Kelly Steckelberg’s remarks

According to CFO Kelly Steckelberg, the fourth-quarter results could have been better if it wasn’t for the strong U.S. dollar. On the earnings webinar, she said:

Zoom has implemented initiatives focused on driving new online subscriptions, which have shown early promise but were not enough to overcome the macro dynamics in the quarter. The big challenge is new customer additions.

Such initiatives include restricting meetings hosted by “free” users to 40 minutes to further incentivise upgrading to the paid plan.

Zoom stock down on trimmed guidance

For the full financial year, Zoom now forecasts $3.66 to $3.69 of adjusted per-share earnings on roughly $4.39 billion in revenue. It expects up to 83 cents of EPS this quarter and about $1.1 billion in revenue, which compares to the FactSet consensus of 92 cents and $1.15 billion.

Wall Street currently has a consensus “overweight” rating on the Zoom stock with upside to $126 on average; a 40% increase from here.
