LinkedIn Beats Expectations With A $327 Million Q1, But Stock Declines After-Hours

Linkedin LogoLinkedIn reported Q1 2013 results this afternoon. With revenue of $324.7 million, the company beat consensus Wall Street expectations. Revenue for the same period last year was $188.5 million. The US market was responsible for 62 percent of the total, while international revenues were 38 percent.

LinkedIn’s stated goal is to drive daily engagement among its user base and it has made considerable progress toward that goal with a range of new products and services, including improved search and more content.

LinkedIn expects full year 2013 revenue to come in between $1.43 billion and $1.46 billion. However weaker guidance for Q2 is what has sent the stock down in after-hours trading. Indeed, record revenues are projected for 2013 though the pace of revenue growth is slowing.
