Oct 29 (Reuters) - Cybersecurity firm FireEye Inc FEYE.O forecast fourth-quarter revenue above analysts' estimates on Tuesday, helped by a rise in cloud subscriptions.
The company forecast revenue of between $224 million and $228 million for the quarter, while analysts on average were expecting $224.14 million, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.
The company posted an adjusted profit of 2 cents per share for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, above the average analyst estimate of 1 cent.
Business Insider reported earlier this month that FireEye has hired Goldman Sachs Group Inc GS.N for a potential sale, citing three sources familiar with the discussions, adding that private equity firms appear to be the most likely buyers.
