Salesforce Q4 Revenue Forecast Misses Views

Cloud software company Inc (NYSE:CRM) forecast current-quarter revenue that fell short of market expectations, pushing its shares down 4 percent in extended trading.

The company said it expected revenue of about $1.44 billion for the quarter ending Jan. 31, missing the average analyst estimate of $1.45 billion.

Revenue for the third quarter ended Oct. 31 rose 28.6 percent to $1.38 billion, helped by higher demand for its web-based sales and marketing software and services.

Net loss narrowed to $38.9 million, or 6 cents per share, from $124.4 million, or 21 cents per share, a year earlier.
