Zoom reports massive revenue growth in Q2 2021 financial results

01 Sep 2020

Zoom has today announced its financial results for the quarter ended July 31 2021 (Q2), which sees the cloud communications company vastly increase its profit, cash flow and GAAP income, as well as an enormous 355% year-on-year increase in revenue.

Founder and chief executive officer Eric S. Yuan says the world’s shift towards remote solutions and amidst business continuity concerns at the beginning of the year has greatly affected the company’s standing.

“Organisations are shifting from addressing their immediate business continuity needs to support a future of working anywhere, learning anywhere, and connecting anywhere on Zoom’s video-first platform,” says Yuan.

At Zoom, we strive to deliver a world-class, frictionless, and secure communication experience for our customers across locations, devices, and use cases.”

Here are the highlights of Zoom’s Q2 2021 financial results:

Total revenue increased by 355% year-on-year for the company, totalling US$663.5 million.
