DocuSign published its quarterly results on Thursday evening. Its revenue rose by 47% year-on-year to more than $594 million while its non-GAAP margin rose to 82%. This was a significantly higher number compared to the previous 78%. Its free cash flow rose to more than $161 million.
This growth was helped by the strong customer growth. DocuSign increased more than 13,000 customers in the second quarter, bringing the total number to more than 1 million for the first time.
The company also boosted its forward guidance. It now expects to make between $526 million and $532 million in the third quarter. This growth will be boosted by its subscription business, which is expected to generate between $505m and $511m. In a statement, the firm’s CEO said:
“We’re helping our customers and partners to shift their perspective from reactive to proactive, and enacting enterprise-wide programs to automate and digitize their end-to-end agreement processes.”
So, is the DocuSign stock price a buy? DocuSign is not a cheap company to invest in. Besides, this is firm valued at $57 billion that generates less than $1.5 billion. It is also a loss-making company.
Still, using historically, fast-growing SAAS companies tend to have a large premium. Also, the rule of 40 calculation results to 66. This is done by adding the operating margin of 19% and growth rate of 47%. This means that this growth could sustain a pricey share price.
