  • Zoom expects fourth-quarter revenue of between $806 million and $811 million, above estimates of $730.1 million;
  • Revenue for the third-quarter ended Oct. 31 surged 367% to $777.2 million, beating analysts’ average estimate of about $694 million.

Zoom forecast fourth-quarter revenue above expectations on Monday, as the COVID-19 pandemic-induced switch to work from home encouraged more users of its video conferencing service to sign up for paid subscriptions.
