These Analysts Cut Their Forecasts On Sprout Social Following Q1 Results

Sprout Social SPT reported worse-than-expected first-quarter revenue results on Thursday.

Sprout Social posted adjusted earnings of 10 cents per share, versus market estimates of 1 cents per share. The company's quarterly sales came in at $96.874 million, missing market estimates of $97.306 million, according to data from Benzinga Pro.

"We believe our business has fundamentally changed for the better over the past 18 months and we nicely overperformed our gross retention and margin plans during Q1," said Joe Del Preto, CFO. "We underestimated the magnitude of enterprise seasonality that now comes with our business mix, while also self-inducing sales execution headwinds during Q1 that we believe were important to position us for future success. We have factored Q1 underperformance and tightened strategic focus into our reduced 2024 revenue forecast, though we believe we're now positioned for greater long- term success."

Sprout Social shares fell 3.5% to close at $48.15 on Thursday.
