The computer software company released earnings Tuesday, June 18th, after the market close and beat on both the top and bottom line. Aided by its cloud subscription services and digital media sales, revenue was $2.74 billion versus a $2.7 billion consensus, while earnings per share of $1.83 outpaced expectations of $1.78 per share.
However, working to offset the strong fiscal second quarter performance, the company provided guidance that came up short versus expectations, forecast earnings per share of $1.95 versus a $2.05 consensus. That said, management did boost their near-term profit outlook following a partnership agreement with Microsoft.
While shares did not react much to the release yesterday, the optimistic outlook offered by management in the earnings call is carrying shares upward, especially as integration of its product suite aided by major acquisitions of Magento and Marketo across industries offers significant opportunity.
