And now the earnings reflect that in a great way. On Monday, the company significantly exceeded its own forecast sales in the second quarter and achieved a sales increase of 355 percent over the same period last year. Zoom had revenues of $ 663.5 million for May, June, and July compared to $ 622.3 million for all of 2019.
