LogMeIn (LOGM) Q1 Earnings Miss, Revenues Beat Estimates

Read MoreHide Full Article

LogMeIn (LOGM - Free Report) recently released mixed results for first-quarter 2020, wherein the top line surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate, while the bottom line missed the same. Non-GAAP revenues of $322.4 million marginally beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $322 million and increased 5% year over year.

Non-GAAP earnings of $1.21 per share increased 3.4% year over year. However, the reported figure missed the consensus mark by a penny.

LogMeIn did not hold a conference discussing the recently-released first-quarter 2020 results or issue any guidance due to its impending acquisition agreement. Notably, in December 2019, the company entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by technology-focused global private equity firms Francisco Partners and Evergreen Coast Capital Corp. The transaction is expected to be completed by mid-2020.
