On Tuesday, ZoomInfo Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:ZI) shares advanced 2.57% after announcing its most recent quarterly results. The stock had spiked more than 4% in the early morning hours.
The software infrastructure provider reported its FQ3 revenue and earnings Monday after markets closed, beating analyst expectations.
ZoomInfo posted FQ3 non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.13, narrowly outperforming the consensus Street estimate of $0.12. On the other hand, its GAAP EPS of -$0.15 missed the average for analyst estimates of $0.05, while revenue for the quarter soared more than 60% from the same quarter in 2020 to $197.6 million, surpassing the Street forecast by $13.79 million.
In addition, ZoomInfo issued FQ4 revenue guidance in the range of $206 million to $208 million, significantly above the average Street forecast of $195.4 million.
ZoomInfo’s exciting outlook
From an investment perspective, ZoomInfo shares trade at a steep trailing 12-month P/E and forward P/E ratio of 269.13 and 100.97, respectively. Therefore, value investors could opt for alternatives in the market.
However, with analysts expecting its earnings per share to grow by more than 53% this year, before rising at an average annual rate of about 39% over the next five years, the stock could be a compelling option for growth investors.
