UiPath Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2023 Financial Results

ARR of $977 million increased 50 percent year-over-year driven by net new ARR of $52 million

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–UiPath, Inc. (NYSE: PATH), a leading enterprise automation software company, today announced financial results for its first quarter fiscal 2023 ended April 30, 2022.

“We are pleased to have exceeded first quarter guidance across all metrics with ARR of $977 million growing 50 percent year-over-year. I want to thank the UiPath team for their hard work and dedication to our customers in the midst of such turbulent times,” said Daniel Dines, UiPath Co-Founder and Co-Chief Executive Officer. “To help our customers more quickly realize the benefits of automation, we recently launched our UiPath 2022.4 platform. This release opens additional pathways in productivity, customer satisfaction, and employee engagement while also expanding our SaaS capabilities with new Automation Cloud™ robots. Our relentless focus on innovation continues to accelerate our customers’ digital transformation initiatives while extending our market leadership.”

Ashim Gupta, UiPath Chief Financial Officer, added, “Our financial model and strong balance sheet position us well in the current macroeconomic environment. The automation market is large and growing and we continue to take market share given the measurable return on investment we create for our customers and the breadth and depth of our automation platform.”

First Quarter Fiscal 2023 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue of $245.1 million increased 32 percent year-over-year.
  • ARR of $977.1 million increased 50 percent year-over-year.
  • Net new ARR of $51.8 million.
  • Dollar based net retention rate of 138 percent.
  • GAAP gross margin was 82 percent.
  • Non-GAAP gross margin was 85 percent.
  • Net cash used in operations was $52.9 million.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow was negative $53.8 million.
  • Cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities were $1.8 billion as of April 30, 2022.

Financial Outlook

“One of UiPath’s strengths is our global presence as we operate in more than 100 countries which gives us diverse perspectives and access to talent,” said Gupta. “We price in local currency and with more than 50 percent of our business conducted outside of North America our results are subject to foreign exchange volatility. Accordingly, our full fiscal year 2023 guidance, which we are raising this afternoon, includes an FX headwind offset by growing momentum in the business. Looking ahead, there is a significant opportunity to continue to grow at scale while improving operational efficiency.”

For the fiscal second quarter 2023, UiPath expects:

  • Revenue in the range of $229 million to $231 million
  • ARR in the range of $1,040 million to $1,042 million as of July 31, 2022
  • Non-GAAP operating loss in the range of $(60) million to $(55) million

For the fiscal full year 2023, UiPath expects:

  • Revenue in the range of $1,085 million to $1,090 million
  • ARR in the range of $1,220 million to $1,225 million as of January 31, 2023
  • Non-GAAP operating income in the range of $10 to $15 million

Reconciliation of non-GAAP operating income (loss) guidance to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to the charges excluded from this non-GAAP measure; in particular, the effects of stock-based compensation expense specific to equity compensation awards that are directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuations in our stock price. We expect the variability of the above charges to have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future GAAP financial results.

Forward Looking Statements

Statements we make in this press release may include statements which are not historical facts and are considered forward-looking within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, which are usually identified by the use of words such as “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “intends,” “may,” “plans,” “projects,” “outlook,” “seeks,” “should,” “will,” and variations of such words, including the negatives of these words or similar expressions.

We intend these forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act and are making this statement for purposes of complying with those safe harbor provisions.

These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the growth of the automation market, the impact of FedRAMP authorization and our financial guidance for the second fiscal quarter and fiscal year-end 2023. Accordingly, actual results could differ materially or such uncertainties could cause adverse effects on our results. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. These risks include, but are not limited to, risks and uncertainties related to: the unfavorable conditions in our industry, the market, political, economic, and business conditions, including geopolitical turmoil as caused by the war in Ukraine; foreign currency headwinds; our recent rapid growth, which may not be indicative of our future growth; our limited operating history; our ability to successfully manage our growth; our ability and the ability of our platform to satisfy and adapt to customer demands; our dependency on our existing customers to renew their licenses and purchase additional licenses and products from us and our channel partners; our ability to attract and retain customers; the competitive markets in which we participate; general market, political, economic, and business conditions; our ability to maintain and expand our distribution channels; our ability to retain and motivate our management and key employees and integrate new team members and execute management transitions; our reliance on third-party providers of cloud-based infrastructure; the potential impact that the COVID-19 pandemic, macroeconomic effects from the war in Ukraine, increasing inflationary cost pressures, supply chain constraints, and an economic downturn could have on our or our customers’ businesses, financial condition, and future operating results; and the price volatility of our Class A common stock.

Further information on risks that could cause actual results to differ materially from our guidance can be found in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the annual period ended January 31, 2022 filed with the SEC on April 4, 2022, and in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that will be filed for the quarterly period ended April 30, 2022, and other filings and reports that we may file from time to time with the SEC. Any forward-looking statements contained in this press release are based on assumptions that we believe to be reasonable as of this date. Except as required by law, we assume no obligation to update these forward-looking statements.

Key Performance Metric

Annualized Renewal Run-rate (ARR) is a key performance metric we use in managing our business because it illustrates our ability to acquire new subscription customers and to maintain and expand our relationships with existing subscription customers. We define ARR as annualized invoiced amounts per solution SKU from subscription licenses and maintenance obligations assuming no increases or reductions in the subscriptions. ARR does not include the costs we may incur to obtain such subscription licenses or provide such maintenance and does not reflect any actual or anticipated reductions in invoiced value due to contract non-renewals or service cancellations other than for specific bad debt or disputed amounts. Additionally, though we use ARR as a forward-looking metric in the management of our business, it does not include invoiced amounts reported as perpetual licenses or professional services revenue in our consolidated statement of operations, and is not a forecast of future revenue, which can be impacted by contract start and end dates, duration, and renewal rates.

Dollar-based net retention rate represents the rate of net expansion of our ARR from existing customers over the preceding 12 months. We calculate dollar-based net retention rate as of a period end by starting with ARR from the cohort of all customers as of 12 months prior to such period end (Prior Period ARR). We then calculate the ARR from these same customers as of the current period end (Current Period ARR). Current Period ARR includes any expansion and is net of any contraction or attrition over the preceding 12 months but does not include ARR from new customers in the current period. We then divide total Current Period ARR by total Prior Period ARR to arrive at dollar-based net retention rate. Dollar-based net retention rate may fluctuate based on the customers that qualify to be included in the cohort used for calculation and may not reflect our actual performance.

Investors should not place undue reliance on ARR or dollar-based net retention rate as an indicator of future or expected results. Our presentation of these metrics may differ from similarly titled metrics presented by other companies and therefore comparability may be limited.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This earnings press release includes financial measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC, including non-GAAP cost of licenses, non-GAAP cost of subscription services, non-GAAP cost of professional services and other, non-GAAP gross profit and margin, non-GAAP sales and marketing expenses, non-GAAP research and development expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating income (loss) and margin, and non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude:

  • stock-based compensation expense;
  • amortization of acquired intangibles;
  • employer payroll tax expense related to employee equity transactions; and
  • in the case of non-GAAP net income (loss), tax adjustments associated with the add-back items.

Additionally, this earnings release presents non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow, which includes purchases of property and equipment and capitalization of software development costs, and excludes cash paid for employer payroll taxes related to employee equity transactions and net payments/receipts of employee tax withholdings on stock option exercises.

UiPath uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating UiPath’s ongoing operational performance. UiPath believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing its financial results with other companies in UiPath’s industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. Non-GAAP financial measures are financial measures that are derived from the consolidated financial statements, but that are not presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with useful supplementary information in evaluating our performance. Investors should consider these non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, our financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, our non-GAAP information may be different from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies. The information below provides a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. We encourage investors to consider our GAAP results alongside our supplemental non-GAAP measures, and to review the reconciliation between GAAP results and non-GAAP measures that is included at the end of this earnings press release. This earnings press release and any future releases containing such non-GAAP reconciliations can also be found on the Investor Relations page of UiPath’s website at https://ir.uipath.com.
