Zoominfo Technologies ZI is set to release third-quarter 2020 results on Nov 9.

In second-quarter 2020, ZoomInfo reported revenues of $111.2 million, up 40% year over year. Moreover, adjusted earnings were 7 cents per share.

For the to-be-reported quarter, ZoomInfo expects revenues between $116 million and $118 million. Moreover, earnings are expected in the 8-9 cents per share range.

Let’s see how things shaped up prior to this announcement.

Factors to Note

ZoomInfo’s third-quarter results are expected to benefit from an expanding customer base as well as solid retention rate.

Notably, this leading go-to-market intelligence platform provider ended the second quarter with more than 650 customers with $100K or greater in annual contract value (“ACV”). ACV from these customers surged 60% year over year. The momentum is expected to have continued in the to-be-reported quarter.

Moreover, ZoomInfo follows a subscription-based business model which makes it resilient against the coronavirus-led disruptions. This is expected to have benefited top-line growth.

However, margins are expected to have remained pressed due to incremental sales & marketing expenses related to signing new customers as well as retaining and upselling to existing customers in the to-be-reported quarter.
