Revenue marked a 23% increase year-over-year in the fiscal first quarter. At the same time, the company’s core Sales Cloud product delivered $1.39 billion in revenue, up 11%.

For Q2, Salesforce expects its adjusted EPS to reach a high of 92 cents and revenue to hit $6.23 billion. Moreover, for full fiscal 2022, the company expects a revenue increase of 22% to $26 billion. The guidance surpassed analysts’ outlook.
