Earnings preview: What to look for when Box reports Q2 earnings

Box Inc. (NYSE: BOX) is slated to report earnings results for the second quarter of 2020 on Wednesday, August 28, after the market closes. Analysts have forecast a loss of $0.02 per share on revenue of $169.5 million.

Box has been seeing slower billings growth compared to revenue growth for the past two quarters, which is a concern for investors as it indicates fewer customer additions to the sales pipeline. The company has attributed this slowdown to longer sales cycles.

However, the SaaS platform has seen strong demand from existing clients and this can be expected to continue in the second quarter, helping drive revenue. The topline numbers are also likely to benefit from the company’s investments in security solutions, which are gaining prominence in the current environment.

In the first quarter of 2020, Box beat expectations with a 16% growth in revenue to $163 million and a narrower-than-expected loss of $0.03 per share. Billings rose 1% to $118.4 million.
