August 31, 2021

By Klavs Valters

Zoom reported its second quarter financial numbers after the market close on Monday.

The video-calling software company reported total revenue of $1.02 billion in Q2 (up by 54% year-over-year) vs $991 million expected. It was the first time the total revenue exceeded $1 billion in a single quarter.

Earnings per share also came in above estimates at $1.36 per share vs $1.16 per share expected.

”In Q2, we achieved our first billion dollar revenue quarter while delivering strong profitability and cash flow,” said Zoom founder and CEO, Eric S. Yuan.

”Q2 also marked several milestones on our expansion beyond the UC platform. We launched Zoom Apps, bringing over 50 apps directly into the Zoom experience, and Zoom Events, an all-in-one digital events service. Today we are a global brand counting over half a million customers with more than 10 employees, which we believe positions us extremely well to support organisations and individuals as they look to reimagine work, communications, and collaboration.”
