The business analytics company delivered better-than-expected results in the fiscal third quarter.

What happened

Shares of Domo (DOMO 13.77%) have soared today, up by 15% as of 12:48 p.m. EST, after the business analytics specialist reported third-quarter earnings. The company beat expectations for both top- and bottom-line results.

So what

Revenue in the third quarter increased 22% to $44.8 million, of which $37.8 million was subscription revenue.

"I am very pleased with our 24% subscription revenue growth and our execution in Q3, closing several of the largest deals in company history," CEO Josh James said in a statement. "We provide a differentiated solution that helps customers quickly, easily and securely put data to work at scale."

Now what

The chief executive added that Domo is making progress in reducing its cash burn. The tech company is focused on becoming cash flow positive. Guidance also came in above Wall Street's forecasts.

Revenue in the fourth quarter is expected to be in the range of $45 million to $46 million, which should translate into an adjusted net loss of $0.94 to $0.98 per share. Consensus estimates currently call for $43.9 million in revenue and an adjusted net loss of $0.98 per share.
