“As the results show, our strong business execution in Q1 has helped us sustain growth and achieve operating leverage,” said Josh James, Domo founder and CEO. “I’m particularly pleased with our people and their performance delivering 29% growth in subscription revenue, while lowering operating expenses 15%. Today we’ve seen how challenging and expensive it is for even the largest technology vendors to deliver only a few pieces of what we’ve built in our platform. I’m continually impressed how our customers, some of which are the world’s biggest corporations, are transforming their businesses by using our platform with our rapidly expanding portfolio of enterprise applications and advanced data offerings.”

“Q1 was another solid quarter for us,” said Bruce Felt, CFO.  “We are executing well against our plan as we balance improvements in our expense profile and investments to capture the incredible growth opportunity in front of us, while we march toward cash flow positive with our fully funded business.”
