IPOs in 3D IV – Zoom Video Communications

Originally this would have been a post on Sundial Growers. It seemed to be another case of bad luck as per today the return on the IPO-price is even worse than -70%, so pretty much the same as Sonim. However, no serious financial reports could be found. Neither a form 10K nor a 10Q was available. Looking at the dates it turned out that I was fooled by the American habit of putting day and month in an illogical order not going from detailed to less detailed or the other way round, but putting the month before the day. My Excel couldn’t deal with it and messed up all the dates. This means that my selection probably isn’t about listings from the start of 2019 at all. I will have to check again. Looking at the lack of financial information I encountered earlier, it would have been better to take IPOs from 2018 anyway. I will reconsider the next time. Yet this means I had to move from a disappointing IPO to a very promising one:  Zoom Video Communications.

Again it was hard to get information about Q4 2018 and Q3 2019 is not available yet. The company seems to have a broken book-year, as it starts only at the end of January. With the same tricks as in previous posts I derived an average for revenue and profit for Q4 2018, although I had both annual data and data for H1 suggesting that Q4 actually was worse than the average. As the annual numbers were not confirmed, I stuck with the average approach.

The balance for Q4 2018 is known from the quarterly overview for Q1. Before the IPO the equity was negative and now we know this will show in the graph as a hollow, blackish “building”. For this company it seems the IPO came in time as well, as their balance-sheet is much healthier now!Three IPOs in 3D-graph

Double-clicking the screenshot will open the 3D-graph in your browser. For maniputalion of this 3D-graph: Clicking the right mouse-button, moving the mouse up and down will zoom the graph in and out. Clicking left and moving the mouse will tilt the graph in different directions (or move the observer’s viewpoint around a fixed graph – it’s relative of course). Double clicking in the graph translates it and moves the centre at the same time. As a result the way the graph tilts will change. Just try it. If you don’t know how to get the normal position back, just refresh the graph.

If you want to know more about the AnRep3D-geneator, please have a look at our website or visit our youtube-channel, showing all details of AnRep3D in short videos of a couple of minutes.

Do you want to try it yourself? There is a free demo-version of the AnRep3D-generator. It’s fully functional, yet limited to one line of data (meaning that only one building will appear, representing one company in a specific year or quarter). You don’t even have to give us your email-address to be able to download a free demo, since we believe that the true visionairies will ask for a licence anyway. Of course you can follow us on Twitter: @AnRep3D where new posts will be announced.

About AnRep3D

AnRep3D is the new company, founded after the handover of Scientassist (together with VRBI) to one of my sons. From now I will focus on three-dimensional graphs for the financial markets, showing the main figures from annual reports in comparison. As per 2021 a second product is available: EnRep3D. It is meant to visualise energy. Although the engine is the same, the texts, manual, website and examples (including blogposts) are focused at energy.
