Database challenger MongDB this afternoon reported fiscal Q4 revenue that topped analysts’ expectations, and a smaller-than-expected net loss, and an outlook for revenue that was higher as well.
The report sent MongoDB shares up 3% in late trading.
CEO and president Dev Ittycheria called the quarter a “strong finish to an incredibly successful year.”
Added Ittycheria, “Our performance in fiscal 2021 demonstrated the increasingly strategic role MongoDB’s modern application data platform plays in enabling customers to use software and data to derive a competitive advantage.”
Looking ahead, said Ittycheria, “MongoDB is in an excellent position to benefit from the shift to the cloud and the need to build smarter and more powerful applications that transform a company’s business.
We are confident in our ability to keep delivering strong growth at scale and will continue to invest in our platform to ensure we fully capitalize on our large market opportunity over the long-term.”
Revenue in the three months ended in January rose over 38%, year over year, to $171 million, yielding a net loss of 33 cents a share.
