Announces Appointment of Chris Weber as Chief Business Officer
ARR of $925 million increased 59 percent year-over-year driven by record net new ARR of $107 million
NEW YORK, March 30, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--UiPath, Inc. (NYSE: PATH), a leading enterprise automation software company, today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and full year fiscal 2022 ended January 31, 2022 and the appointment of Chris Weber as Chief Business Officer.
"The UiPath team delivered a strong finish to fiscal year 2022 with fourth quarter net new ARR reaching a record $107 million, an increase of 72 percent year-over-year. We believe this is a testament to our highly differentiated end-to-end platform," said Daniel Dines, UiPath Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. "Our customers understand that automation is at the forefront of digital transformation and fundamental to driving efficiency, employee satisfaction, and strengthening customer relationships, all necessary to successfully navigate today’s complex operating environment and establish a sustainable competitive advantage."
Ashim Gupta, UiPath Chief Financial Officer, added, "I am pleased with our fourth quarter fiscal year 2022 results. Net new ARR growth accelerated meaningfully driven by new customers and a best-in-class dollar based net retention rate of 145 percent as existing customers deployed more automations and adopted more capabilities across our platform. We delivered both positive non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022 and remain committed to balancing growth and profitability."

In a separate release issued today, UiPath announced the appointment of Chris Weber as Chief Business Officer. A former Microsoft executive with more than 25 years of enterprise software experience, Weber will be responsible for leading global go-to-market strategy and execution at UiPath, and will guide worldwide sales, services, and other go-to-market operations including its partner organization. UiPath also announced that Chief Revenue Officer Thomas Hansen is leaving the Company to pursue other opportunities. Hansen will remain with UiPath through the end of the first quarter fiscal 2023 to assist with the transition.
"We are saddened by the war and humanitarian crisis that is unfolding in Ukraine," said Daniel Dines, UiPath Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. "We have built a global business that serves customers in more than 115 countries, including countries across eastern Europe and Russia. Looking ahead, we feel confident in our market leading position in automation and prospects for future growth at scale but believe it is prudent at this time to factor both our European exposure and go-to-market leadership transition into the financial outlook we are providing this afternoon."
For the fiscal first quarter 2023, UiPath expects:
Revenue in the range of $223 million to $225 million
ARR in the range of $960 million to $965 million as of April 30, 2022
Non-GAAP operating loss in the range of $(30) million to $(25) million
For the fiscal full year 2023, UiPath expects:
Revenue in the range of $1,075 million to $1,085 million
ARR in the range of $1,200 million to $1,210 million as of January 31, 2023
Non-GAAP operating income in the range of $0 to $10 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.

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 our financial guidance for the first fiscal quarter and fiscal year-end 2023, our strategic plans or objectives, the estimated addressable market opportunity for our platform and our position in the market, future growth opportunities, the success of our platform and new platform releases, the success of our investment in our personnel and partnerships, the success of our collaborations with third parties, and the ability of our platform to deliver our customers a return on investment.

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, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, and non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude:
stock-based compensation expense;
amortization of acquired intangibles;
employer payroll tax expense related to employee equity transactions;
in the case of non-GAAP net income (loss), tax adjustments associated with the add-back items; and
in the case of non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow, purchases of property and equipment, capitalization of software development costs, cash paid for employer payroll taxes related to employee equity transactions, and net 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.
