Cloudera (CLDR - Free Report) is set to report first-quarter fiscal 2020 results on Jun 5.
In the fourth quarter, the company reported adjusted loss of 15 cents per share that was wider than the Zacks Consensus Estimate of a loss of 11 cents and the year-ago quarter’s loss of 5 cents.
Revenues of $144.5 million beat the consensus mark of $121 million and rallied 36.7% on a year-over-year basis.
For first-quarter fiscal 2020, revenues are expected between $187 million and $190 million. Non-GAAP net loss is anticipated to be 25-22 cents per share.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pegged at $188.3 million, up 83.3% from the figure reported in the year-ago quarter. The consensus mark for the bottom line is at a loss of 23 cents, unchanged over the past 30 days.
Let’s see how things are shaping up for this announcement.
Factors to Watch
Cloudera’s portfolio strength, go-to-market business model and sales force reorganization are helping it expand customer base. At the end of the last reported quarter, the company had 976 customers, with annual recurring revenues (ARR) of more than $100,000.
The Hortonworks acquisition is also expected to positively impact Cloudera’s ability to attract new customers. The deal improves the company’s competitiveness in the hybrid and multi-cloud market, which is currently dominated by Amazon (AMZN - Free Report) , Microsoft and Google.
Further, Cloudera’s investments in machine learning, analytics and cloud are providing it a competitive edge. We expect the company to sustain the momentum in the to-be-reported quarter.
