  • The Company's trailing four quarter average Net Dollar Retention rate was 134% at the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2023, up from 133% in the previous fiscal quarter.

Second Quarter Highlights:

During the second quarter, HashiCorp continued to invest across its product portfolio, including the following products enhancements:

  • HashiCorp Terraform Cloud: Drift Detection, which provides continuous checks against infrastructure state to detect and notify when there are changes, minimizing risk, downtime, and costs, became generally available on Terraform Cloud.

  • HashiCorp Consul: HashiCorp Cloud Platform (HCP) Consul on Microsoft Azure became generally available and can support production workloads running on Azure. This announcement marks the latest milestone in the HashiCorp and Microsoft collaboration, providing a fully managed, cloud-based service mesh solution.

  • HashiCorp Boundary: HCP Boundary, the HashiCorp-managed service to help organizations standardize secure remote access to critical infrastructure regardless of where it resides, became available in public beta.

  • HashiCorp Vault: Vault 1.10, which added login multi-factor authentication support, promoted Vault as an OpenID Connect provider to generally available status, and added support for public key infrastructure to use hardware security modules. Vault was evaluated as conformant with the Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2 standards, achieving FIPS 140-2 Compliance. The HashiCorp Vault ecosystem continued to show strong growth with 12 new HCP, Enterprise, and open source integrations, including with MongoDB, Yugabyte, and TraefikLabs.

  • Awards: 2022 Microsoft Open Source Software on Azure Partner of the Year Award (U.S. winner); 2022 Microsoft Open Source Software on Azure Partner of the Year Award (global finalist); Fortune Best Places to Work in the Bay Area; Fortune Best Places to Work for Millennials; and Comparably Best CEOs for Diversity.

Financial Outlook

For the third quarter of fiscal 2023, the Company currently expects:

  • Total revenue of $110 - $112 million
  • Non-GAAP operating loss of $66 - $63 million
  • Non-GAAP EPS loss of $0.32 - $0.30
  • Weighted Average Fully Diluted Shares of 187.4 million

For the full fiscal year 2023, the Company currently expects:

  • Total revenue of $442 - $448 million
  • Non-GAAP operating loss of $198 - $194 million
  • Non-GAAP EPS loss of $0.97 - $0.95
  • Weighted Average Fully Diluted Shares of 186.2 million

HashiCorp has not reconciled its expectations as to third quarter and fiscal year 2023 non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP earnings per share to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Due to the limited public trading history and significant volatility in the price of HashiCorp’s common stock, certain items, which could be material, cannot be calculated without unreasonable efforts. In particular, the measures and effects of our stock-based compensation expense specific to our equity compensation awards and employer payroll tax-related items on employee stock transactions are directly impacted by the timing of employee stock transactions and unpredictable fluctuations in our stock price, which we expect to have a significant impact on our future GAAP financial results.

This press release and the accompanying conference call contain forward-looking statements including, among others, statements about our financial outlook for the third quarter and full year of fiscal 2023. In some cases you can identify forward- looking statements because they contain words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “likely,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “seek,” “should,” “target,” “will,” “would,” or similar expressions and the negatives of those terms.

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements related to market opportunity and our ability to benefit from it, market and customer trends, including continued adoption by our customers of their multi-cloud strategies, our customers’ confidence in our products, and our outlook related to the third quarter and fiscal year 2023. Such statements are subject to numerous important factors, risks and uncertainties that may cause actual events or results to differ materially from current expectations and beliefs, including but not limited to risks and uncertainties related to market conditions, HashiCorp and its business as set forth in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) pursuant to our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q dated June 9, 2022 and our future reports that we may file from time to time with the SEC. These documents contain and identify important factors that could cause the actual results for HashiCorp to differ materially from those contained in HashiCorp’s forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statements contained in this press release speak only as of the date hereof, and HashiCorp specifically disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statement, except as required by law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our results determined in accordance with GAAP, we have disclosed non-GAAP gross profit of subscription revenue and non-GAAP gross profit of professional services and other, non-GAAP gross margin of subscription revenue and non-GAAP gross margin of professional services and other, non-GAAP operating expenses (research and development, sales and marketing, general and administrative), non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, non-GAAP free cash flow and total and current non-GAAP RPOs, which are all non-GAAP financial measures. We have provided tabular reconciliations of each non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure at the end of this release.

We calculate non-GAAP gross profit for subscription revenue and professional services and other as GAAP gross profit before amortization of stock-based compensation of capitalized internal-use software, and stock-based compensation expense included in cost of revenue.

We calculate non-GAAP gross margin for subscription revenue and professional services and other as GAAP gross margin before the impact of stock-based compensation of capitalized internal-use software, and stock-based compensation expense included in cost of revenue as a percentage of revenue.

We calculate non-GAAP operating expenses (research and development, sales and marketing, general and administrative) as GAAP operating expenses (research and development, sales and marketing, general and administrative) before the impact of stock-based compensation of capitalized internal-use software, and stock-based compensation expense included in cost of revenue as a percentage of revenue.

We calculate non-GAAP operating loss as GAAP operating loss before amortization of stock-based compensation of capitalized internal-use software, and stock-based compensation expense. We calculate non-GAAP net loss as GAAP net loss before amortization of stock-based compensation of capitalized internal-use software, and stock-based compensation expense.

We calculate non-GAAP net loss per share as non-GAAP net loss divided by weighted average shares outstanding.

We calculated non-GAAP free cash flow as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less purchases of property and equipment and capitalized internal-use software costs. Non-GAAP free cash flow as a % of revenue is calculated as non-GAAP free cash flow divided by total revenue.

We calculate non-GAAP RPOs as RPOs plus customer deposits, which are refundable pre-paid amounts, based on the timing of when these customer deposits are expected to be recognized as revenue in future periods. The current portion of non-GAAP RPO represents the amount to be recognized as revenue over the next 12 months.

Our management team uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believe they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating our ongoing operational performance. We believe 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 our financial results with other companies in our industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. In particular, other companies may report non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses (research and development, sales and marketing, general and administrative), non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, free cash flow or similarly titled measures but calculate them differently, which reduces their usefulness as comparative measures. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, as presented below. This earnings press release and any future releases containing such non-GAAP reconciliations can also be found on the Investor Relations page of our website at https://ir.hashicorp.com.
