Let’s see how things have shaped up for this announcement.

Factors to Watch

Domo’s second-quarter results are expected to have benefited from a resilient subscription-based business model amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Markedly, subscriptions increased 23% year over year and accounted for 87% of the company’s first-quarter revenues. The momentum is expected to have continued in the to-be-reported quarter.

Further, Domo’s expanding clientele, particularly enterprise customers, is expected to have driven the top line in the to-be-reported quarter. Additionally, the company’s expanding service offerings based on a solid partner base is a key catalyst. Notably, at the end of the first quarter, 57% of customers were on multi-year contracts.

Moreover, second-quarter bottom line is expected to reflect benefits of planned cost reductions. Domo expects operating expenses to decrease by about $2-$3 million sequentially.

Key Q2 Developments

During the to-be-reported quarter, Domo announced an expanded partnership with Snowflake to help customers build their business in the cloud.

Moreover, Domo continued to win accolades in the to-be-reported quarter. The company was named a leader in both Customer Experience and Vendor Credibility in the 2020 Dresner Wisdom of Crowds BI Market Study.

The awards reflect Domo’s growing popularity in the BI and analytics market.
