In addition to cloud storage, Box provides other services to its global customers. For example, it competes with DocuSign by offering electronic signature services. It also offers Box Relay, a product that automates workflows.

Box has had a lot of success over the past few years. On the one hand, the company serves more than 100,000 customers worldwide. Its clients include approximately 67% of all Fortune 500 companies. Some of its top clients are companies like Morgan Stanley, Farmers Insurance, Intuit, and Broadcom.

Box’s stock price will be in the spotlight this week as the company releases its quarterly results. Analysts expect its revenue to rise to $234 million in the first quarter from the previous $233.36 million.

They also expect him to lose around $0.04 per share. Still, judging from the past, Box will likely beat analysts’ forecasts since it has done so every quarter since its IPO.

In addition to the key figures, analysts will be looking at its forecast given that its activity is expected to slow down. For one thing, businesses that needed cloud storage have already subscribed. Like other companies, the stock will react to the wage pressure that many companies are facing. Another key thing to watch will be its Box Sign product and its adoption internationally.
