Monday.com Ltd. (NASDAQ: MNDY) shares jumped almost 4% in the pre-market trading session on May 16, after the company delivered a first-quarter revenues beat and also raised its FY2022 guidance above the analyst expectations.
The Monday.com provides Work OS, a work operating system that is an open platform that helps organizations to build work management tools and software applications to manage their work.
Markedly, revenues jumped 84% year-over-year to $108.5 million and exceeded consensus estimates of $101.22 million.
The increase in revenues reflected a surge in customers with more than $50,000 Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR), which increased 187%, as well as a strong 150% retention rate for customers in the same category.
On the downside, the company reported an adjusted loss of $1.48 per share, much higher than the street’s estimated loss of $1.02. However, it was a significant improvement over the previous year’s loss of $3.52 per share.

For the full year, the company now forecast revenues to grow between 58% and 60%, and to be in the range of $488 to $492 million, higher than the prior-guided range of $470 million to $475 million.
