CrowdStrike shares surged as much as 17% in after-hours trading Tuesday, after the company reported a beat on the top and bottom lines, and issued stronger than expected guidance for the upcoming quarter and full year.

Here’s how the company did, compared to LSEG, formerly Refinitiv, consensus estimates:

  • Earnings per share: 95 cents adjusted versus 82 cents expected
  • Revenue: $845 million, versus $839 million expected

The company also announced it would acquire Flow Security for an undisclosed price in a cash-and-stock deal, slated to close in the company’s fiscal first quarter. The company has been stepping up its M&A activity in recent months.

“CrowdStrike is cybersecurity’s consolidator of choice, innovator of choice, and platform of choice to stop breaches,” co-founder and CEO George Kurtz said in a release.

The company also guided to fiscal first-quarter revenues between $902 million and $906 million, better than a consensus estimate of $899 million. CrowdStrike also expects EPS for the period between 89 to 90 cents, better than the 82 cent consensus estimate.

CrowdStrike CFO Burt Podmere also reiterated the company’s focus on achieving $10 billion in annual recurring revenue.
