Expectations This Time Around

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the to-be-reported quarter’s revenues is pegged at $641.2 million, indicating 8.9% year-over-year growth. The top line is expected to have been driven by growth in subscription revenues, benefiting from strong growth in the customer base.

The consensus mark for non-GAAP earnings is pegged at 53 cents, suggesting a 39.5% increase from the year-ago quarter. Better operating performance is likely to have positively impacted the bottom line in the quarter.
