Fresh after the recently completed merger with Hortonworks, Cloudera (NYSE: CLDR) announced its fourth-quarter 2019 results on March 13 after the bell.
In the three-month period, the cloud tech firm saw total revenue soar 37% higher to $144.5 million, while subscription revenue jump 42% to $123.0 million year-over-year.
Given that the Hortonworks merger closed on Jan. 3, 2019, the company stated that is no comparative year-over-year financial information for the combined company.
Adjusted net loss was 15 cents a share
GAAP loss from operations for the quarter of fiscal 2019 was $87.0 million. A year ago, GAAP operations loss for standalone Cloudera was $38.1 million.
Quarterly non-GAAP loss from operations was $30.2 million, compared to $9.0 million in standalone Cloudera non-GAAP operations last year.
GAAP net loss per share for the fourth quarter widened to $0.45 per share, from standalone GAAP net loss of 25 cents a share a year ago.
Non-GAAP net loss per share was 15 cents a share for the three-month period.
“Having completed the merger with Hortonworks, we are now squarely focused on delivering a powerful combined, integrated platform purpose-built for enterprise customers,” CEO Tom Reilly weighed in.
