Let’s see how things have shaped up for this announcement. Factors to Watch
Domo’s first-quarter top-line growth is expected to reflect resiliency of its subscription-based business model. Markedly, subscriptions increased 25.7% year over year and accounted for 87.9% of the company’s fourth-quarter revenues. The momentum is expected to have continued in the to-be-reported quarter.
Domo has also benefited from the ongoing digital transformation of businesses and work-from-home wave. Additionally, the company’s expanding service offerings, based on a solid partner base, is a key catalyst. Expanded partnerships with the likes of Snowflake ( SNOW Quick Quote SNOW - Free Report) and Amazon Web Services (AWS) are noteworthy in this regard. Markedly, during Domopalooza, Domo announced extensive support for AWS, including Domo for Amazon Redshift. The company also announced fully integrated product listings for more than 3,000 data products from AWS Data Exchange in the Domo Appstore. Additionally, Domo announced the availability of Domo for Snowflake during the to-be-reported quarter. Further, Domo’s expanding clientele, particularly enterprise customers, are expected to have driven the top line. Notably, at the end of the fourth quarter, 62% of customers were on multi-year contracts. However, the bottom line is expected to have been hurt by modest sequential increase in operating expenses, particularly due to the addition in sales headcount and annual conference Domopalooza, in the to-be-reported quarter.
