MDB Announces Financial Results
As mentioned above, MongoDB is making a run for the top in the trading session this morning after announcing its financial results. Here’s what we saw from the report:
- Loss – During the quarter, the company produced a loss of $0.17 per share. Not only did this beat expectations of a loss of $0.38 per share, it showed compelling year over year growth from the $0.40 per share loss reported a year ago.
- Revenue – In terms of revenue, the company said that it brought in $85.48 million. That figure not only beat estimates in a big way, it showed strong growth over the $45.04 million reported one year ago.
It’s also worth mentioning that the company consistently beats expectations. In fact, it beat earnings estimates for the past four consecutive quarters.
In a statement, Dev Ittycheria, President and CEO at MDB, had the following to offer:
MongoDB’s exceptional fourth quarter performance capped a record year for the company. MongoDB is being adopted by an ever increasing number of companies across diverse industries who recognize the power of our next-generation database platform to drive business performance, increase agility and shorten time to market.
MongoDB Atlas, our fully managed global, multi-cloud database service, achieved a major milestone in the fourth quarter, surpassing $100 million in annualized revenue run rate less than three years from launch. At approximately one third of our revenue, MongoDB Atlas’ tremendous growth highlights its compelling value to enable customers to focus on innovation and offload the operational burden of database management.
