Box shares fall despite upbeat Q2 results

Cloud technology company Box, Inc. (BOX) reported a narrower net loss in the second quarter as marked customer base growth and a rise in billings drove revenue higher. Though the results topped street expectations, investors reacted negatively triggering a stock sell-off.

For the fiscal year 2019, the company narrowed its adjusted loss per share guidance to the range of $0.18 to $0.16 from prior estimate of $0.19 to $0.16, and its revenue outlook to $606 million to $608 million from the previous forecast of $603 million to $608 million.

GAAP net loss guidance was lowered to a range of $1.02 to $1.00 from prior estimate of $1.07 to $1.04.

The company benefited from the deeper relationships with customers such as JLL, Nationwide, and Societe Generale, as well as focusing on strategic solution sales. This led to another quarter of strong attach rates for add-on products like Box Governance, Zones, and Platform.

Shares of Box closed Tuesday’s regular trading session up 2.35% but lost nearly 3% in the after-hours following the earnings announcement.
