Zoom saw revenue more than double and bulked up what had been a razor-thin profit margin in the three months ending April 30, the company reported Tuesday.

The big picture: The report marks Zoom's first of the pandemic era, as the company went from insurgent enterprise video-conferencing startup to global powerhouse.

Details:

  • Revenue came to $328.2 million, up 169% year over year and well above the $203 million Wall Street reportedly expected.
  • Net income came to $27.0 million, or $0.09 per share, up from $198,000, or roughly break-even per share, in the year-ago quarter. Analysts had been projecting $0.01 per share.
  • The company counted roughly 265,400 enterprise customers with more than 10 employees, up 354% year over year.

Zoom shares were up modestly in after-hours trading following the report.

Apple added 3.5% and Zoom gained 8.6% during the day with its stock jumping by nearly 10% in after-hours trading after posting better-than-expected Q2 earnings.
