“We had an outstanding second quarter with momentum continuing to build for our Identity Security platform,” said Udi Mokady, CyberArk Chairman and CEO. “Robust demand, great execution and strong industry tailwinds drove the strength in our bookings. This resulted in 48 percent year-over-year growth in total ARR and in a 133 percent year-over-year growth in Subscription ARR, led by strong demand for our SaaS solutions. Our Identity Security platform centered on intelligent privilege controls is resonating with customers, who are turning to CyberArk as a trusted partner to secure all identities from workforce to privileged users to machines. The power of our land and expand strategy was demonstrated by another strong new business quarter, with nearly 250 new logos, as well as increased velocity of add on and cross sell activity in our customer base. Our Identity Security platform and subscription business model are unlocking transformational value for our customers and for CyberArk. Based on our performance in the first half of 2022, we are raising our full year guidance for total revenue and ARR and have increased confidence that we can deliver against the multi-year durable growth opportunity with strong cash flow and profitability.”

Key Performance Indicators and Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR)

Maintenance Portion of Annual Recurring Revenue
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
CyberArk believes that the use of non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) and free cash flow is helpful to our investors. These financial measures are not measures of the Company’s financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to gross profit, operating loss, net loss or net cash provided by (used in) operating activities or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP.
The Company believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures that are adjusted by, as applicable, share-based compensation expense, facility exit costs, acquisition related expenses, amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions, non-cash interest expense related to the amortization of debt discount and issuance cost, the tax effect of the non-GAAP adjustments, and purchase of property and equipment allows for more meaningful comparisons of its period to period operating results. Share-based compensation expense has been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense in the Company’s business and an important part of the compensation provided to its employees. Share based compensation expense has varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and a variety of equity instruments that can impact a company’s non-cash expense. The Company believes that expenses related to its facility exit costs, acquisitions, amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions and non-cash interest expense related to the amortization of debt discount and issuance costs do not reflect the performance of its core business and impact period-to-period comparability. The Company believes free cash flow is a liquidity measure that, after the purchase of property and equipment, provides useful information about the amount of cash generated by the business.
Non-GAAP financial measures may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in the Company’s industry, as other companies in the industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently, particularly related to non-recurring, unusual items. In addition, there are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures as they exclude expenses that may have a material impact on the Company’s reported financial results. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. CyberArk urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures included below, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate its business.
Guidance for non-GAAP financial measures excludes, as applicable, share-based compensation expense, acquisition related expenses, amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions, non-cash interest expense related to the amortization of debt discount and issuance costs and the tax effect of the non-GAAP adjustments. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available on a forward-looking basis due to the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability and significance of, the amounts of share-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions, and the non-recurring expenses that are excluded from the guidance. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures for future periods is not available without unreasonable effort.
