Factors to Consider

Unity Software’s third-quarter results are expected to have benefited from robust demand for its software solutions from content creators like game developers, architects, automotive designers and filmmakers.

Moreover, the online gaming industry has been witnessing accelerated growth owing to the coronavirus-led shelter-in-place guidelines. This is likely to have boosted the presence of Unity’s software solutions, which enable independent developers, freelance artists and global publishers like AAA Studios to create and operate content.

Further, strong demand for interactive, real-time 2D and 3D content for mobile phones, tablets, PCs and virtual reality devices is expected to have aided the company’s top line.

Notably, as of Jun 30, 2020, the company hosted 1.5 million monthly active creators in more than 190 countries and territories around the world.

Additionally, the company’s dollar-based net expansion rate, which measures expansion in existing customers’ revenues over a trailing 12-month period, grew from 129% as of Jun 30, 2019, to 142% as of Jun 30, 2020.

The momentum is likely to have continued in the to-be-reported quarter, driven primarily by strong adoption of the company’s subscription-based Create Solutions and Operate Solutions.
