Zoom Video Communications Inc (NASDAQ: ZM) topped third-quarter expectations and lifted its 2024 outlook Monday, fueled partly by strong customer loyalty and expanding usage of tools beyond the company's standard video meetings.

Zoom said third-quarter revenue increased 3.2% year-over-year to $1.14 billion, which beat the consensus estimate of $1.12 billion. The company reported quarterly earnings of $1.29 per share, which beat analyst estimates of $1.08 per share, marking the 18th consecutive EPS beat for Zoom.

CFO Kelly Steckelberg said that additional services like Zoom Scheduler, Contact Center, and Whiteboard have increased consumer "retention rates." As well, by growing beyond core video, Steckelberg notes Zoom has been able to cross-sell additional capabilities that users now rely on for broader productivity -- something she's expects will continue to help expand margins.

Steckelberg also touched on Zoom's approach to AI with the recent launch of the Zoom AI companion, which she notes has been added by over 200,000 accounts in just a two-month span. Steckelberg says the company has been testing various vendors’ technologies rather than relying solely on one company, such as OpenAI, in the wake of its leadership turmoil.

Further Catalysts for the ZM Weekly Options Trade…..

The company, whose signature video software became the essential communications tool for homebound Americans during the pandemic, has turned its focus to business customers. Zoom has added features for those clients, including word processing, and stepped up the use of artificial intelligence to buttress its main videoconferencing service, which competes fiercely with Microsoft Corp.’s Teams product.

Enterprise revenue from 219,700 customers rose 7.5% to $661 million in the quarter ended Oct. 31, topping analysts’ average estimate. Zoom said it had 3,731 clients that contribute more than $100,000 in trailing 12-month revenue — an increase of almost 14% from the period a year earlier.

“We bolstered Zoom’s all-in-one intelligent collaboration platform with advanced new capabilities like Zoom AI Companion and continued to evolve our customer and employee engagement solutions,” Chief Executive Officer Eric Yuan said in the statement.

The results “are encouraging to us amid the company’s need to offset a slowdown in its consumer unit with higher sales to business customers,” wrote John Butler, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence, adding that Zoom’s focus on expanding profitability “also appears clearly on track.“

Other Catalysts.....

The stock's modest rise is attributable to the quarter's revenue and earnings exceeding Wall Street's consensus estimates and management increasing annual guidance on the top and bottom lines.

Revenue.....

For fiscal Q3, Zoom's revenue rose 3.2% year over year (and 3.5% in constant currency) to $1.14 billion. This result was higher than the $1.12 billion analysts were expecting and the company's guidance range of $1.115 billion to $1.120 billion.

Growth was driven by Zoom's enterprise business, whose revenue grew 7.5% year over year to $660.6 million. The online segment's revenue was down 2.4% to $476.1 million.

The enterprise business's year-over-year revenue growth continued its deceleration. In Q1 and Q2 of the current fiscal year, this metric was 13% and 10%, respectively. For the full fiscal year of 2023, it was 24%.

Operating Income.....

Income from operations under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) was $169.4 million, up 194% from the year-ago period. Adjusted for one-time items, operating income landed at $447.1 million, up 17% year over year.

EPS.....

GAAP net income was $141.2 million, or $0.45 per share, up 181% from the year-ago period. Adjusted net income came in at $401.2 million, or $1.29 per share, up 21% year over year.

Wall Street had been looking for adjusted earnings per share (EPS) of $1.00, so the company zoomed by this profit expectation. It also sped by its own guidance of $1.07 to $1.09 per share.

Operating Cash Flow.....

The quarter's operating cash flow surged 67% year over year to $493.2 million. Free cash flow jumped 66% to $453.2 million.

Zoom's balance sheet remains robust. The company ended the quarter with $6.5 billion in available cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities, and no long-term debt.

Zoom Phone.....

Zoom Phone, one of the company’s most important secondary bets, hit 7 million paid users in the quarter, Steckelberg said. Its contact center product reached 700 customers, she added. Sales declined outside of the Americas in the quarter, Steckelberg said, with the European and Asian regions declining 2%. Sales in the Americas were up 5%.

Moving Forward.....

Zoom said it expects fourth-quarter revenue to be between $1.125 billion and $1.13 billion versus estimates of $1.13 billion. The company expects fourth-quarter earnings to be between $1.13 and $1.15 per share versus estimates of $1.00 per share.

Full-year revenue is expected to be between $4.506 billion and $4.511 billion versus estimates of $4.5 billion. Full-year earnings are expected to be between $4.93 and $4.95 per share versus estimates of $4.27 per share.

Management issued Q4 guidance and raised its annual outlook.

Analysts.....

112023-ZM-ANALYSTS.PNG

According to the issued ratings of 22 analysts in the last year, the consensus rating for Zoom Video Communications stock is Hold based on the current 17 hold ratings and 5 buy ratings for ZM. The average twelve-month price prediction for Zoom Video Communications is $81.55 with a high price target of $100.00 and a low price target of $66.00.

Summary.....

Shares appear to be reacting favorably to the company's better-than-expected quarterly results and upbeat forward outlook.

With a market capitalization of $19.3 billion, a $6.49 billion cash balance, and positive free cash flow over the last 12 months, it appears that Zoom has the resources needed to pursue a high-growth business strategy.

It was encouraging to see Zoom narrowly top analysts' revenue expectations this quarter, driven by more new customer wins than projected. Its free cash flow also beat Wall Street's estimates significantly. On the other hand, its net revenue retention of 105% missed. Overall, the results could have been better, but the market is rewarding the company for its robust cash generation.

Zoom Video Communications traded up $1.88 on Monday, reaching $66.00. The stock had a trading volume of 9,367,157 shares, compared to its average volume of 3,726,619. The company has a market capitalization of $19.86 billion, a price-to-earnings ratio of 150.00, and a price-to-earnings-growth ratio of 1.07 and a beta of -0.16. Zoom Video Communications has a fifty-two week low of $58.87 and a fifty-two week high of $85.13. The firm has a 50-day moving average of $64.94 and a 200-day moving average of $67.12.
