Pivotal will no longer be hosting a conference call to discuss second-quarter fiscal 2020 financial results.

For the second quarter, subscription customers grew 12% year-over-year to 397. The dollar-based net expansion rate was 139%.

The company’s business model focuses on the large and growing market, rapidly growing subscription revenue at scale, and strong customer adoption and expansion. It also includes strategic services to accelerate customer adoption as well as improving gross margins and operating leverage.
