NEW YORK: UiPath, Inc. (NYSE: PATH), a leading enterprise automation and AI software company, today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and full year fiscal 2024 ended January 31, 2024.

“We delivered a strong close to the fiscal year with fourth quarter ARR growing 22 percent year-over-year to $1.464 billion, underscoring the meaningful outcomes our Business Automation Platform delivers for our customers,” said Rob Enslin, UiPath Chief Executive Officer. “The combination of UiPath’s AI and automation is the strategic change enabler for our customers that makes any digital transformation easier and faster, while empowering customers to innovate, adapt more quickly, and grow.”

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2024 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue of $405 million increased 31 percent year-over-year.
  • ARR of $1.464 billion increased 22 percent year-over-year.
  • Net new ARR of $86 million.
  • Dollar based net retention rate of 119 percent.
  • GAAP gross margin was 87 percent.
  • Non-GAAP gross margin was 89 percent.
  • GAAP operating income was $15 million.
  • Non-GAAP operating income was $111 million.
  • Net cash flow from operations was $146 million.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow was $146 million.
  • Cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities were $1.9 billion as of January 31, 2024.

Full Year Fiscal 2024 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue of $1.308 billion increased 24 percent year-over-year.
  • Net new ARR of $260 million.
  • GAAP gross margin was 85 percent.
  • Non-GAAP gross margin was 87 percent.
  • GAAP operating loss was $(165) million.
  • Non-GAAP operating income was $233 million.
  • Net cash flow from operations was $299 million.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow was $309 million.

“The team executed well in the fourth quarter and I am particularly pleased with our significant year-over-year increase in operating margins, including our first quarter of GAAP profitability as a public company, and record cash flow,” said Ashim Gupta, UiPath Chief Financial Officer. “Looking ahead to fiscal year 2025, this afternoon’s guidance reflects typical seasonal patterns in the business as well as our plans to strategically invest to further expand our market leadership while continuing to drive operating leverage.”

Financial Outlook

For the first quarter fiscal 2025, UiPath expects:

  • Revenue in the range of $330 million to $335 million
  • ARR in the range of $1.508 billion to $1.513 billion as of April 30, 2024
  • Non-GAAP operating income of approximately $55 million

For the fiscal full year 2025, UiPath expects:

  • Revenue in the range of $1.555 billion to $1.560 billion
  • ARR in the range of $1.725 billion to $1.730 billion as of January 31, 2025
  • Non-GAAP operating income of approximately $295 million

Reconciliation of non-GAAP operating income 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.

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, 2024 to be filed with the SEC, in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC, and other filings and reports that we have filed and may file from time to time with the SEC.

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 and support obligations assuming no increases or reductions in customers’ subscriptions. ARR does not include the costs we may incur to obtain such subscription licenses or provide such maintenance and support, and does not reflect any actual or anticipated reductions in invoiced value due to contract non-renewals or service cancellations other than for certain reserves, for example those for credit losses or disputed amounts. ARR does not include invoiced amounts associated with perpetual licenses or professional services. ARR is not a forecast of future revenue, which can be impacted by contract start and end dates and duration. ARR should be viewed independently of revenue and deferred revenue as ARR is an operating metric and is not intended to replace these items.

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

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). 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 and margin, and non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income 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;
  • restructuring costs;
  • charitable donation of Class A common stock; and
  • in the case of non-GAAP net income, estimated tax adjustments associated with the add-back items, as applicable.

Additionally, this earnings release presents non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow, which is calculated by adjusting GAAP operating cash flows for the impact of purchases of property and equipment, cash paid for employer payroll taxes related to employee equity transactions, net payments/receipts of employee tax withholdings on stock option exercises, and cash paid for restructuring costs.

UiPath uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, by excluding the effects of special items that do not reflect the ordinary earnings of our operations, and as a supplement to GAAP measures. 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. 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 earnings 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/.
