Bill.com (NYSE:BILL) stock is getting a boost on Friday following the release of its earnings report for its fiscal fourth quarter of 2022.

That report starts with adjusted earnings per share of -3 cents. That’s much better than the -13 cents per share that Wall Street was expecting for the quarter. It’s also an improvement year-over-year from -7 cents per share.

Another highlight for BILL stock comes from its revenue of $200.2 million. That surpasses the $183.1 million in revenue that analysts were looking for during the period. It’s also a 156% increase from its fiscal fourth quarter of 2021.

Bill.com also provides a strong outlook for its fiscal first quarter of 2023 in its earnings report. It’s expecting adjusted EPS ranging from 5 cents to 7 cents on revenue of $208 million to $211 million. For comparison, Wall Street is estimating an adjusted EPS of -9 cents on revenue of $187.6 million.

And that strong guidance continues for the full year of fiscal 2023. The company expects adjusted EPS between 23 cents and 38 cents on revenue of $955.5 million to $973.5 million. Analysts’ estimates include adjusted EPS of -24 cents on revenue of $879.68 million.
