Snowflake (SNOW.US), US cloud-based data company, trades around 18% lower on the day. Drop in the company's share price was triggered by the fiscal-Q1 2024 earnings report that was released yesterday after the close of the Wall Street session.
Company reported slightly better-than-expected results for fiscal-Q1 2024 (February - April 2024) with revenue beating expectations, thanks to solid product revenue, and loss per share turning out to be smaller than expected. Margins also improved compared to a year ago period. However, forecasts for fiscal-Q2 as well as full fiscal-2024 were not as rosy. Snowflake expects product revenue to reach $620-625 million in fiscal-Q2. This is below $646 million expected by the market and, if confirmed, would mark the slowest growth in Snowflake's product revenue on the record. Company also decided to cut its full-year guidance issued in March from $2.71 billion to $2.60 billion while market expected it to stay unchanged.
