Shares of Chegg (NYSE: CHGG) jumped nearly 9% on Tuesday after the connected learning platform company released its second-quarter results.
Chegg's total net revenue jumped 26% year over year to $93.9 million, besting Wall Street's expectations for revenue of $92 million.
Notably, Chegg Services saw its subscriber count rise by 30%, to 2.2 million, while Chegg Study content views increased by 25%, to 198 million.
"Chegg Study remains our largest service and serves as the center of our growth funnel," CEO Dan Rosensweig said in a press release.

All told, Chegg's non-GAAP earnings per share (EPS) surged 92% to $0.23. That was well ahead of analysts' estimates for adjusted EPS of $0.15.
These strong results prompted Chegg to raise its full-year guidance. The company now expects revenue of $398 million to $402 million, up from a prior estimate of $393 million to $398 million. Management also increased its adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) target to between $121 million and $124 million, up from $117 million to $120 million.
"Our industry is clearly evolving faster than many intuitions can adapt," Rosensweig said. "There is more of a need for the services Chegg provides than ever before."
