 C3 AI Announces Fiscal Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results

 C3 AI Announces Fiscal Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results

 Subscription revenue growth of 26% year over year

C3.ai, Inc. (“C3 AI,” “C3,” or the “Company”) (NYSE: AI), the Enterprise AI application software company, today announced financial results for its fiscal second quarter ended October 31, 2022.

“It was a solid second quarter, with subscription revenue growing 26% year over year,” said CEO Thomas M. Siebel. “We made substantial progress ramping our consumption-based sales motion effort, which has been well received by our customers, partners, and sales organization. We expect consumption-based sales will be a substantial contributor to growth in forthcoming quarters.”

Fiscal Second Quarter 2023 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: Total revenue for the quarter was $62.4 million, an increase of 7% compared to $58.3 million one year ago.
  • Subscription Revenue: Subscription revenue for the quarter was $59.5 million, an increase of 26% compared to $47.4 million one year ago.
  • Gross Profit: GAAP gross profit for the quarter was $41.7 million, representing a 67% gross margin, compared to GAAP gross profit of $42.3 million one year ago. Non-GAAP gross profit for the quarter was $47.8 million, representing a 77% non-GAAP gross margin, compared to non-GAAP gross profit of $45.3 million one year ago.
  • Remaining Performance Obligations (“RPO”): GAAP RPO of $417.3 million, down from $465.5 million one year ago. Our GAAP RPO represents 163% of Q2 annualized revenue. Non-GAAP RPO of $453.5 million, down from $529.3 million one year ago.
  • Net Loss per Share: GAAP net loss per share was $(0.63), compared to $(0.55) one year ago. Non-GAAP net loss per share was $(0.11), compared to $(0.23) one year ago.
  • Cash Reserves: With $858.8 million in cash, cash equivalents, and investments, we believe C3 AI is well positioned to sustain equity market turbulence and to continue to invest in growth through Enterprise AI innovation and sales expansion.

C3 AI successfully completed its transition from a subscription-based pricing model to a consumption-based pricing model. At the same time, C3 AI largely restructured the global sales organization, now composed of highly technical domain experts. While the short-term effect of this transition lowers revenue growth and decreases RPO, the Company believes the medium and long term effect provides a substantial accelerator to revenue growth.

The number of completed contracts in the quarter increased to 25, slightly greater than a 100% increase from 12 one year earlier. The average contract value in the second quarter was $0.8 million, down from $19.0 million a year earlier as a result of the new pricing model. C3 AI believes the new pricing model will result in a substantially increased number of smaller transactions providing greater forward visibility into revenue and bookings, and a substantially increased customer base from which to grow revenues.

C3 AI remains focused on its accelerated path to profitability. Non-GAAP loss from operations for the second quarter was $15.0 million, an improvement from $22.6 million in the quarter a year earlier. The Company expects to be operating profitably on a non-GAAP basis and be cash positive by the end of fiscal 2024.

Financial Outlook:

The Company’s guidance includes GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures.

The following table summarizes C3 AI’s guidance for the third quarter of fiscal 2023 and full-year fiscal 2023:

(in millions)

Third Quarter Fiscal 2023
Guidance

 

Full Year Fiscal 2023

A reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to corresponding GAAP measures is not available on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort due to the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, expenses that may be incurred in the future. Stock-based compensation expense-related charges, including employer payroll tax-related items on employee stock transactions, are impacted by the timing of employee stock transactions, the future fair market value of our common stock, and our future hiring and retention needs, all of which are difficult to predict and subject to constant change. We have provided a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures in the financial statement tables for our historical non-GAAP results included in this press release. Our fiscal year ends April 30, and numbers are rounded for presentation purposes.

Investor Presentation Details

Statement Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports the following non-GAAP financial measures, which have not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP), in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

  • Non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP loss from operations, and non-GAAP net loss per share. Our non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP loss from operations, and non-GAAP net loss per share exclude the effect of stock-based compensation expense-related charges and employer payroll tax expense related to employee stock-based compensation. We believe the presentation of operating results that exclude these non-cash items provides useful supplemental information to investors and facilitates the analysis of our operating results and comparison of operating results across reporting periods.
  • Non-GAAP RPO: Non-GAAP RPO represents our GAAP RPO plus the associated cancellable contracted backlog. We believe the presentation of our RPO inclusive of the cancellable backlog provides useful supplemental information to investors about our aggregate contractual backlog and facilitates the analysis of our operating results and comparison of operating results across reporting periods.

We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally for financial and operational decision-making purposes and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP financial measures and should be read only in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our presentation of non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. We encourage investors to carefully consider our results under GAAP, as well as our supplemental non-GAAP information and the reconciliation between these presentations, to more fully understand our business. Please see the tables included at the end of this release for the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.
