Here is what Alger Mid Cap Focus Fund said:

“Zoom Video Communications provides a cloud-native, video-first communications platform that transforms how people communicate, interact and work together. It offers a better experience with easy onboarding and use, and it addresses enterprise needs around scalability, cost and minimal IT involvement. The company is a leader and household name in video communication and is benefiting from the explosive growth of remote working and learning from home resulting from Covid¬19 social distancing. Shares of Zoom outperformed after the company said its fiscal second quarter exceeded consensus expectations and raised its fiscal-year 2021 guidance for revenues and profitability. We believe Zoom is currently well positioned to benefit from the ongoing high levels of remote working and learning at home. Additionally. it is continuing to capture market share and its launch of Zoom Phone and Zoom Rooms has expanded its market. The company is also increasing its penetration within enterprises and is expanding internationally.”
