Coupa Software (COUP) drops despite topping Q2 estimates; provides gloomy Q3 earnings outlook

Shares of Coupa Software (NASDAQ: COUP) declined about 5% yesterday during the extended trading hours and down about 3% in the pre-market trading hours today. While the company topped the bottom and topline estimates for the second quarter of 2021, the weak profit outlook for Q3 dragged down the stock to negative territory.

Q2 results

On an adjusted basis, Coupa’s profit increased to $0.21 per share in the second quarter of 2021 from a profit of $0.07 per share in the year-ago quarter. Revenue rose 32% to $125.9 million, driven by the increase in the number of customers with annualized subscription revenue above $100,000, which rose to 874 compared to 704 customers in the prior-year quarter.
