Also known as an earnings call, a conference call is an opportunity for investors to hear from executive management of a publicly-listed company once a quarter. 

As quarterly earnings reports are required, these calls are scheduled in advance and attended by investors, analysts, experts and journalists.

What Happens During a Conference Call?

Generally, a conference call begins with a prepared statement by upper management detailing the previous quarter’s financials, the company’s performance and the firm’s outlook. The report also covers key performance indicators (KPIs) that drive the business’s operations. 

The call continues with a review of projected future earnings, guidance and projected growth. You can also expect to hear comments pertaining to revenue growth, margin expansion, financial metrics and profitability. 

After a review of the company’s financials, analysts can ask questions of the executive team. Generally, investors only listen to the call to get an idea of how the company is performing. 

Why Are Conference Calls Important?

Conference calls are a good time for executive management to assuage any fears investors may have, address controversies that occurred over the previous quarter and explain the current direction of the business.

These calls also give analysts time to ask questions and gather insight needed to make predictions. If you’re reading analyst alerts, some of that information came from — or was gleaned from — an earnings call.
