September 6, 2021

MongoDB reported its financial results for the second quarter ended July 31, 2021. The firm had a Q2 loss of 24 cents per share on revenue of $198.7 million, up 44% from a year ago. Investors were expecting a loss of 41 cents per share on revenue of just $182.4 million.

"MongoDB's second quarter results were exceptionally strong across the board, highlighted by Atlas revenue growth of 83%. Our performance reflects the desire of nearly every business to use a modern application data platform that enables them to accelerate the pace of their digital innovation agenda," said Dev Ittycheria, President and Chief Executive Officer of MongoDB.

"It is becoming increasingly clear that the fastest and most compelling way to build modern applications is to use MongoDB. Our introduction of MongoDB 5.0, with new product enhancements like Atlas Serverless, Live Resharding, Versioned API and native time series support, is the latest example of how we address a growing set of critical business issues for customers. As a result, MongoDB is increasingly becoming a strategic technology partner and standard for customers, which supports our ability to generate attractive growth at scale for the foreseeable future."
