Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) today announced financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2021.

“In Q3, we held our premier user event, Zoomtopia, on our Zoom Events service. During this immersive, multi-track conference, we showcased how Zoom is placing people at the center of our communications platform, connecting their disparate work streams into our technology, moving beyond enterprises’ ability to collaborate internally, and empowering them to communicate face-to-face with their customers through Zoom Events and our upcoming Video Engagement Center.

We also showcased innovations such as hot desking, whiteboarding, and smart gallery, all designed to empower both co-located and remote hybrid workforces as some companies test return to office programs,” said Zoom founder and CEO, Eric S. Yuan. “Through innovation and dedication, we will continue to deliver happiness to our customers. Looking forward, we expect to close the year between $4.079 to $4.081 billion in total revenue, representing approximately 54% year-over-year growth, alongside strong profitability and operating cash flow growth.

We are well on our way to becoming an indispensable platform for enterprises, individuals, and developers to connect, collaborate, and build in the flexible hybrid world of work. We believe our global brand, innovative technologies, and large customer base position us well for the future.”
