Report from Zoom

Zoom reported record growth in quarterly revenues and profits, exceeding Wall Street estimates. Zoom's projections for the first quarter and full fiscal year 2022 are also above expectations.

Shares in Zoom Video Communications (ZM) rose 8.4% after the close of trading on Monday.

Zoom's IPO took place on 18 April 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic has made Zoom's product incredibly popular and the company's shares have risen sharply. Zoom provides a free 40-minute video call service, with a limited number of participants, and charges for the corporate service.

Over the past 12 months, Zoom shares have risen by more than 290%. The 7.7% drop in the stock over the last quarter is due to the emergence of COVID-19 vaccines and investor fears that bringing employees back into offices and students back into classrooms will reduce the company's earnings.
