UiPath Stock-Financial Outlook for Q4 2023:
For the fourth fiscal quarter of 2023, UiPath anticipates:
In the range of $277 million to $279 million in revenue.
As of January 31, 2023, ARR in the range of $1,174 million to $1,176 million.
Non-GAAP operating profit of almost $35 million.
A forward-looking reconciliation of non-GAAP operating income guidance to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is not possible without unreasonable efforts due to the high variability, complexity, and low visibility of the charges excluded from this non-GAAP measure, including, in particular, the effects of stock-based compensation expense specific to equity awards that are directly impacted by fluctuations in UiPath stock price.
We anticipate that the unpredictability of the aforementioned expenses will have a substantial and perhaps unpredictable impact on our future GAAP financial results.
