Zoom cuts forecast: revenue growth slows to single digits

According to a statement, Zoom's fiscal second quarter revenue grew 8 percent year-on-year, slowing from the previous quarter's 12 percent growth. The fiscal second quarter ended July 31. Zoom's net income fell to $45.7 million in the quarter, down from $316.9 million in the previous quarter, due to higher sales and marketing expenses.

The strong dollar, the performance of the company's online business, and sales that weighed down toward the end of the quarter had a negative impact on the quarter's revenues, said Kelly Steckelberg, Zoom's chief financial officer. "We implemented targeted initiatives to promote new online subscriptions, which proved promising, but were not enough to overcome the macro dynamics of the quarter," Steckelberg said during a Zoom call with analysts.

At the end of the quarter, the company said it had about 204,100 corporate customers, which are business units that Zoom's direct sales teams, resellers or partners work with. This is an increase of less than 3 percent from 198,900 three months earlier. Corporate customers account for 54 percent of total sales.
