What Can Investors Expect From ServiceNow’s Q4 Earnings?

While Big Tech earnings take all the headlines this week, cloud computing specialist ServiceNow may be worth paying attention to.

Jan. 26, 2021

With the likes of Apple and Tesla likely to make the headlines for analysts this week, investors can be forgiven for forgetting that ServiceNow (NYSE: NOW) will also release its Q4 report on Wednesday. After growing 89% in 2020 and hitting all-time highs in mid-December, ServiceNow experienced a new year’s slump.

However, its stock has been steadily on the rise ahead of its earnings call this week.

When is ServiceNow’s earnings date?

ServiceNow reports earnings for the fourth quarter of 2020 on Wednesday, January 27 at 2:00 PM Pacific Standard Time.

What can we expect from ServiceNow’s earnings call?

Consensus estimates for ServiceNow’s quarter expect adjusted earnings per share (EPS) of $1.06, which suggests growth of 10.4% from the same period last year, while revenue is estimated to come in at  $1.22 billion. The SaaS provider forecasted its own revenue to come in at around $1.14 billion, while subscription billings (non-GAAP) are projected between $1.61 billion and $1.63 billion.

The results of the Q4 report are likely to be dependent on the company’s recent string of product launches. In October last year, ServiceNow launched its Connected Operations and Workplace Service Delivery solutions, which it has touted as a fresh sales driver. Promising sales numbers of these new products, as well as its core offerings, will instill confidence in the stock among investors at a time when pandemic-related weakness across medium-sized customers could affect its revenue stream.
