NEW YORK: $CXM #AI--Sprinklr (NYSE: CXM), the unified customer experience management (Unified-CXM) platform for modern enterprises, today reported financial results for its first fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2024.

"Despite operating in a more challenging macro environment, we generated strong free cash flow in Q1 and we’re innovating with new products and AI features. While the changes and initiatives we’re implementing will take several quarters to work through, we believe we have the right strategy and leaders in place. We believe that the appointment of Trac Pham as Co-CEO will enable us to seamlessly combine our technical innovation with operational leadership,” said Ragy Thomas, Sprinklr Founder and Co-CEO.

First Quarter Fiscal 2025 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: Total revenue for the first quarter was $196.0 million, up from $173.4 million one year ago, an increase of 13% year-over-year. Subscription revenue for the first quarter was $177.4 million, up from $157.7 million one year ago, an increase of 12% year-over-year.
  • Operating Income (Loss) and Margin*: First quarter GAAP operating income was $5.7 million, compared to an operating loss of $3.2 million one year ago. Non-GAAP operating income was $20.4 million, compared to non-GAAP operating income of $11.0 million one year ago. For the first quarter, GAAP operating margin was 3% and non-GAAP operating margin was 10% compared to GAAP operating margin of (2)% and non-GAAP operating margin of 6% in the first quarter of fiscal year 2024.
  • Net Income Per Share*: First quarter GAAP net income per share, diluted was $0.04, compared to net income per share, diluted of $0.01 in the first quarter of fiscal year 2024. Non-GAAP net income per share, diluted for the first quarter was $0.09, compared to non-GAAP net income per share, diluted of $0.06 in the first quarter of fiscal year 2024.
  • Cash, Cash Equivalents and Marketable Securities: Total cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of April 30, 2024 was $610.1 million.

* Free cash flow, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP net income per share are non-GAAP financial measures defined under “Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” and are reconciled to net cash provided by operating activities, operating income (loss), net income or net income per share, as applicable, the closest comparable GAAP measure, at the end of this release.

Financial Outlook

Sprinklr is providing the following guidance for the second fiscal quarter ending July 31, 2024:

  • Subscription revenue between $177.5 million and $178.5 million.
  • Total revenue between $194 million and $195 million.
  • Non-GAAP operating income between $16.5 million and $17.5 million.
  • Non-GAAP net income per share between $0.06 and $0.07, assuming 277 million diluted weighted-average shares outstanding.

Sprinklr is providing the following guidance for the full fiscal year ending January 31, 2025:

  • Subscription revenue between $714 million and $716 million.
  • Total revenue between $779 million and $781 million.
  • Non-GAAP operating income between $104 million and $105 million.
  • Non-GAAP net income per share between $0.40 and $0.41, assuming 276 million diluted weighted-average shares outstanding.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our results determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we believe that the following non-GAAP financial measures associated with our condensed consolidated statements of operations are useful in evaluating our operating performance:

  • Non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin;
  • Non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP operating margin; and
  • Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share.

We define these non-GAAP financial measures as the respective U.S. GAAP measures, excluding, as applicable, stock-based compensation expense and related charges and amortization of acquired intangible assets. We believe that it is useful to exclude stock-based compensation expense-related charges and amortization of acquired intangible assets in order to better understand the long-term performance of our core business and to facilitate comparison of our results to those of peer companies over multiple periods.

In addition, we believe that free cash flow is also a useful non-GAAP financial measure. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less cash used for purchases of property and equipment and capitalized internal-use software. We believe that free cash flow is a useful indicator of liquidity as it measures our ability to generate cash, or our need to access additional sources of cash, to fund operations and investments. We expect our free cash flow to fluctuate in future periods with changes in our operating expenses and as we continue to invest in our growth. We typically experience higher billings in the fourth quarter compared to other quarters and experience higher collections of accounts receivable in the first half of the year, which results in a decrease in accounts receivable in the first half of the year.

However, non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in their usefulness to investors because they have no standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and are not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures differently or may use other measures to evaluate their performance, all of which could reduce the usefulness of our non-GAAP financial measures as tools for comparison. As a result, our non-GAAP financial measures are presented for supplemental informational purposes only and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Sprinklr has not reconciled its financial outlook expectations as to non-GAAP operating income or as to non-GAAP net income per share to their respective most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures as a result of the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to the charges excluded from these non-GAAP measures, in particular, the measures and 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 U.S. GAAP financial results. Accordingly, reconciliation is not available without unreasonable effort, although it is important to note that these factors could be material to Sprinklr’s results computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
