Okta Announces Strong Third Quarter Results
Q3 revenue grew 61% year-over-year; subscription revenue grew 63% year-over-year

Okta Inc. (OKTA) on Wednesday reported a loss of $221.3 million in its fiscal third quarter. The San Francisco-based company said it had a loss of $1.44 per share. Losses, adjusted for stock option expense and amortization costs, came to 7 cents per share.

The results beat Wall Street expectations. The average estimate of 12 analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research was for a loss of 23 cents per share.

“Our strong third quarter results reflect the continued shift to Identity-First architectures and the critical adoption of Zero Trust security environments, which are both propelling our market leading position,” said Todd McKinnon, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Okta. “We’re maintaining the momentum of both Okta and Auth0 and are making great progress on the integration. We’re already seeing early success cross-selling into each other’s customer bases and are on our way to capturing more of the massive identity market faster together.”
