In a remarkable display of growth and innovation, cybersecurity firm CyberArk has revealed impressive financial results for the second quarter of 2023. The company’s revenue rose by 24% to $175.8 million in the second quarter, beating expectations. As a result of the good news, the share price rose by 12% during the trading session.
The star of the report was the annual recurring revenue (ARR), a critical metric indicating the expected annual revenue from ongoing contracts. CyberArk achieved an ARR of $653 million, representing a robust 40% increase in comparison to the corresponding quarter in 2022. This figure also represents an 8% gain from the ARR at the conclusion of the first quarter of 2023.
Another notable accomplishment is the surge in subscribers’ share of the annual recurring income. The second quarter of 2023 saw this figure soar by an impressive 77% when compared with the corresponding quarter in the previous year, culminating in $451 million – a noteworthy 69% of the ARR at the close of the prior quarter. This is a remarkable achievement, especially when compared to the 55% recorded in the equivalent quarter of 2022 and the 67% of the ARR at the close of Q1 in 2023.
CyberArk’s future outlook remains optimistic, with the company raising its revenue forecast for 2023. The newly revised projections estimate a revenue range of $726 million to $736 million – a notable growth of 23% to 24% compared to its 2022 revenue. This revision is particularly significant as it pushes the center of the forecast range up by an additional million dollars, reflecting the company’s strong performance and confidence in its trajectory.
