In this way, the platform expects to achieve revenues of between 495 and 500 million dollars (441 and 445 million euros) in the second quarter of its year, between May and July, and has revised upwards its forecast of income for all the year, up to a range of between 1,775 and 1,800 million dollars (1,581 and 1,604 million euros), which would practically triple the 622 million dollars (554 million euros), invoiced by Zoom in all of its previous year.
