LogMein (LOGM) Down 0.8% Since Last Earnings Report: Can It Rebound?

Zacks Equity Research

It has been about a month since the last earnings report for LogMein (LOGM). Shares have lost about 0.8% in that time frame, underperforming the S&P 500.

Will the recent negative trend continue leading up to its next earnings release, or is LogMein due for a breakout? Before we dive into how investors and analysts have reacted as of late, let's take a quick look at its most recent earnings report in order to get a better handle on the important drivers.

LogMeIn Q1 Earnings Miss, Revenues Beat Estimates

LogMeIn 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.
