Let’s see how things have shaped up for Asana prior to this announcement:

Factors to Consider

Asana’s third-quarter fiscal 2022 results are expected to reflect an expanded enterprise customer base as Asana’s Work Graph data model gains traction.

The number of customers spending $5,000 or more on an annualized basis grew to 12,806, an increase of 61% year over year in the fiscal second quarter. Moreover, the number of customers spending $50,000 or more on an annualized basis grew to 598, an increase of 111% year over year.

The company witnessed high retention rates in the fiscal second quarter, translating into continued strong net new paying customer growth and strong seed expansion for its SaaS-based work management platform. This momentum is expected to have continued in the to-be-reported quarter.

The launch of Asana’s Channel Partner network across 75 countries is expected to have been a key growth driver in the to-be-reported quarter.
