Rahul Joshua · 1 minute read

Shares of ZoomInfo (ZI:US) are trading lower on Tuesday after the tech company reported fourth-quarter results. ZoomInfo reported adjusted earnings per share of $0.26 on revenue of $301.7 million, which compared to the consensus for earnings of $0.22 per share on revenue of $298.85 million.

For the full 2023 year, the company expects to generate between $0.98 and $1.00 in adjusted earnings per share and revenue in the range of $1.275 - $1.285 billion. Guidance was mixed as the analyst consensus for EPS stood at $0.95 on revenue of $1.31 billion.

Shares are under pressure as the difficult macroeconomic environment continues to weigh on results. ZoomInfo reported billings growth of 13% year-over-year, a significant slowdown compared to the reported +28% YoY recorded in the last quarter. 

“We are well-positioned to be a durable grower while compounding free cash flow over the long-term,” said Henry Schuck, ZoomInfo Founder, and CEO.

Overall, Congressman Khanna made 10 trades involving ZoomInfo shares in 2022, including 7 buy transactions.
