The company’s earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in all of the trailing four quarters, the average surprise being 63.5%.
Let’s see how things have shaped up for the announcement.
Factors at Play
CooTek’s sustained focus on rolling out the latest mobile applications is likely to have helped it add new customers, thereby bringing in incremental revenues during the September-end quarter. Its high customer retention ratio is anticipated to have boosted top-line growth.
The company’s quarterly performance is likely to have benefited from the 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 during the to-be-reported quarter.
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.
