The company’s earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the trailing four quarters and missed in the other, the average surprise being 30%.
Let’s see how things have shaped up for the announcement.
Factors at Play
CooTek’s quarterly performance is likely to have benefited from accelerated monetization of its online literature and casual games businesses. Moreover, increased revenue mix of the in-house ad network is expected to have supported revenue and margin growth in to-be-reported quarter.
The company’s sustained focus on rolling out new mobile applications is likely to have helped it in adding new customers, thereby bringing in incremental revenues in the June-end quarter. Its high customer retention ratio is anticipated to have aided top-line growth.
Nonetheless, the company’s bottom-line performance might have been hurt by higher sales and marketing (S&M) expenses mainly due to increased investments in user acquisitions.
