Coupa beats expectations

Coupa announced its third-quarter earnings and beat expectations from Wall Street analysts.

Earnings, adjusted for non-recurring costs and stock option expense, were 31 cents per share, beating analysts’ expectations of 2 cents per share, according to an article on “The company posted revenue of $185.8 million in the period, which also beat Street forecasts. Seven analysts surveyed by Zacks expected $177.6 million,” the article said.

In a call with analysts, Coupa CEO Rob Bernshteyn gave some big-picture views related to the pandemic, saying Coupa is seeing “a significant desire to return to in-person meetings, which we believe to be a very positive trend.” Coupa also said concern about the omicron variant did not play a big role in the company’s Q4 guidance, but it is monitoring the situation.

On the company’s strong deal momentum, Bernshteyn said “these results are all being driven by a massive push for digital transformation of the back office.”
