Zoom Video Communications reported EPS of $1.03 on revenue of $1.07 billion, compared with expectations for EPS of 88 cents on revenue of $1.07 billion.

Enterprise customers rose 24% to about 198,900 from the same quarter last fiscal year, and the trailing 12-month net dollar expansion rate, a key performance metric, for enterprise customers was 123%.

For the second-quarter, EPS was estimated in a range of $0.90 to $0.92 on revenue of about $1.12 billion. That compared with estimates for EPS of $.87 on revenue of $1.11 billion. 

For the full year, EPS was expected between $3.70 and $3.77 on revenue of of between $4.530 billion and $4.550 billion. That compared with prior EPS of between $3.45 and $3.51.
