Atlassian TEAM is set to report fourth-quarter fiscal 2020 results on Jul 30.
During its lastearnings call the company had stated that the coronavirus outbreak had a negligible impact on fiscal third-quarter results. It had also noted that the pandemic’s impact would further worsen in the fiscal fourth quarter, and hence, had issued a wider-than-usual guidance range for the period.
Atlassian projects fiscal fourth-quarter revenues to come between $400 million and $415 million (mid-point $407.5 million). The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pegged at $408.9 million, suggesting growth of 22.2% from the year-ago reported figure.
The company anticipates non-IFRS earnings of 17-22 cents per share (mid-point 19.5 cents). The Zacks Consensus Estimate is pegged at 20 cents per share.
Notably, the company’s earnings surpassed estimates in the trailing four quarters, the average surprise being 25.9%.
Let’s see how things have shaped up for the upcoming announcement.
Factors at Play
Atlassian’s fiscal fourth-quarter performance is expected to have benefited from the rising demand for remote working tools amid the coronavirus-induced global lockdown.

The growing adoption of the company’s cloud-based solutions and massive digitalization of work from organizations, big or small, is likely to have driven its quarterly performance. Increasing demand for the company’s cloud products from new customers as well as the existing clients using on-premises products is another tailwind.
Healthy demand for core products like Jira and Confluence, coupled with the rising uptake of new products like Jira Service Desk, Jira Ops and Bitbucket, is anticipated to have been a key growth driver. Improvement in product quality and performance, multiple product launches and increased pricing are likely to have boosted quarterly revenues
Robust growth in subscription revenues, aided by the higher uptake of the company’s cloud-service offerings, will likely reflect on the company’s to-be-reported results as a consistent key catalyst.
