Zoom Video Communications, Inc., a leading provider of video-first unified communications, today announced financial results for the quarter ended April 30, 2020.

“We were humbled by the accelerated adoption of the Zoom platform around the globe in Q1. The COVID-19 crisis has driven higher demand for distributed, face-to-face interactions and collaboration using Zoom. Use cases have grown rapidly as people integrated Zoom into their work, learning, and personal lives,” said Eric S. Yuan, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Zoom. “I am proud of our Zoom employees who dedicated themselves to support customers and the global community during this crisis. With their tremendous efforts, we were able to provide high-quality video services to new and existing customers.

Yuan added, “We also supported an unprecedented number of free participants, including over 100,000 K-12 schools around the globe that chose Zoom to deliver the best online education experience. This quarter, we were also proud to launch Zoom Cares, our corporate philanthropic entity, with initial grants to San Jose Digital Inclusion Fund, Destination Home, the CDC Foundation, the World Health Organization and the CDE Foundation. While the key long-term focuses of this foundation are education, climate change, and social equity, our primary grants in Q1 were toward organizations making a difference during COVID-19.”
