Snowflake shows 120% revenue growth in third quarter
Snowflake provides a cloud-based data storage and analytics service. It’s part of the “data-warehouse-as-a-service” trend. Corporate customers can use their products to store and analyze their data.
The company said revenue grew to $160 million dollars for the third quarter, a revenue growth of 120% year over year. The company reported a loss of $1.01 per share.
In terms of revenue growth, the company now has 65 customers who each contribute more than $1 million dollars in revenue over the past year. Large corporate clients are typically the bread and butter for B2B companies like Snowflake.
In terms of expenses, Snowflake’s data storage and analytics products are built on top of Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. Therefore, their margins depend heavily on receiving more favorable pricing from these cloud providers. The company has been using its strong negotiating power to get these more favorable deals.

- next - moves the pointer to the right and then returns the number at the pointer.
