Read MoreHide Full Article

Snowflake (SNOW - Free Report) is set to release fourth-quarter fiscal 2021 results on Mar 3.

Markedly, this would be the company’s second earnings call. This Data Cloud platform provider began trading on Nasdaq from Sep 16, 2020.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the top line is currently pegged at $178.9 million. Moreover, the consensus mark for loss has been unchanged at 18 cents per share over the past 30 days.

Snowflake’s fourth-quarter fiscal 2021 results are expected to have benefited from ongoing transition from cloud-based repositories and on-premises data centers to the Data Cloud.


The company’s to-be-reported quarter’s results are expected to have benefited from strong adoption of its Data Cloud platform. Moreover, growing exposure to the data warehousing market and an expanding enterprise customer base are expected to have driven top-line growth.

At the end of the third quarter, the company had 3,554 customers, increasing from 1,934 customers at the end of the year-ago quarter. Moreover, the number of Fortune 500 companies jumped 56% year over year to 165. Further, retention rate had improved sequentially 400 basis points to 162% in the third quarter. The momentum is expected to have continued in the to-be-reported quarter.
