Expectations This Time Around

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the to-be-reported quarter’s revenues is pegged at $529.3 million, indicating 38.2% year-over-year growth. The top line is expected to have been driven by growth in subscription revenues as well as in professional services and other revenues, both benefiting from strong growth in customer base.

The consensus mark for non-GAAP earnings is pegged at 46 cents, suggesting more than 100% jump from the year-ago quarter. Top-line growth and operating strength are likely to have boosted the bottom line in the quarter.
