For the fourth quarter, the company expects revenues of $970 million, indicating year-over-year growth of 11%. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pegged at $970.5 million, indicating an increase of 11.1% from the year-ago reported figure.

Further, the consensus mark for earnings is pegged at 41 cents per share, which indicates no change from the year-ago reported figure.

GoDaddy beat on earnings in two of the trailing four quarters and missed the same twice, with the negative average surprise being 0.2%.

Factors to Consider

Strong renewals on primary registrations and higher subscriptions to Websites + Marketing are likely to have continued benefiting GoDaddy’s fourth-quarter performance.

The growing focus on product innovation and customer traction is expected to have remained a tailwind in the soon-to-be-reported quarter.

Strength in hosting and Managed WordPress solutions is expected to have aided the company in gaining momentum among designers and developers. This might have supported the quarterly performance.

The solid momentum of GDDY’s robust portfolio of services including GoDaddy Payments, e-commerce, Virtual Terminal, Online Pay Links and offline transactions might have benefited its performance in the quarter under review.

GoDaddy has been making go-to-market strategies to help merchants set up an omnichannel commerce venture seamlessly. This is likely to have continued aiding the company to gain momentum among merchants in the fourth quarter.

Yet, global supply chain conditions — which are impacting the company’s technology hardware — are likely to have remained a negative in the to-be-reported quarter.

Further, mounting expenses owing to growing investments in technology and development are expected to have affected the company’s profitability.
