Shares of Workday Inc. (NYSE:WDAY) climbed 9.9% on Wednesday, after the company announced that Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) has purchased a subscription to its Workday Human Capital Management, Recruiting, Learning, and Planning applications.
Workday also noted it isn’t updating its latest financial guidance, which incidentally caused Workday stock to plungelast month as the company warned a few larger deals with multinational customers had been delayed. More specifically, Workday told investors to expect fiscal fourth quarter to be in the range of $427 million to $430 million. That represented 32% to 33% year-over-year growth but fell below Wall Street’s estimates at the time for fiscal Q4 revenue of $433.6 million.
Nonetheless, while Workday typically uses its quarterly conference calls to fill investors in on its latest customer additions, it’s telling that this single deal merited its own SEC filing and caused today’s big pop. With more than 2 million employees globally, Wal-Mart is easily Workday’s biggest customer yet, and adds to the already enviable list of hundreds of industry leaders that trust its enterprise cloud solutions, ranging from Netflix to Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, TripAdvisor, Panera Bread, Chiquita, and Zillow Group, to name only a few.

The main business units of the Hong Leong Asia are the Diesel Engines Unit – China Yuchai , the Consumer Products Unit – Henan Xinfei (now marketed as “Frestec”), and the Building Materials Unit – BMU. The other business units in the company are the Industrial Packaging Unit – Rex and the Air-conditioning Systems Unit – Airwell. As the majority of the business units namely Yuchai, Xinfei and Airwell, operate in China (more than 80% of total revenue), the continual slowdown of the economic growth in China coupled with increasing competition has adversely affected both the revenue and the profitability. Particularly for the consumer products unit, its small scale has severely impacted its competitiveness given aggressive larger players like Haier (OTCPK:HRELF), Midea, Feilong Electric, and Hefei Meiling.
