DocuSign Shares Plunge 30% On Weak Forward Guidance
Shares of DocuSign (NASDAQ:DOCU) have plunged 30% in extended trading after the electronic signature company provided weak forward guidance for the current fourth quarter.
DocuSign said that its fourth-quarter revenue will come in at between $557 million U.S. and $563 million U.S. Analysts were expecting revenue of $573.8 million, according to Refinitiv data.
The guidance was delivered as part of DocuSign's third-quarter results, which saw the company report earnings per share of $0.58 U.S. versus $0.46 U.S. expected by analysts, and revenue of $545.5 million U.S. compared to $531 million U.S. expected by analysts.
