Fourth Quarter and Full Year Fiscal 2023 Guidance
Based on information available to management as of today, December 6, 2022, MongoDB is issuing the following financial guidance for the fourth quarter and full year fiscal 2023.
Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2023
Full Year Fiscal 2023
$334 million to $337 million
$1.257 billion to $1.260 billion
Non-GAAP Income from Operations
$6 million to $8 million
$30.8 million to $32.8 million
Non-GAAP Net Income per Share
$0.06 to $0.08
$0.29 to $0.31
The guidance provided above is forward-looking in nature. Actual results may differ materially. See the cautionary note regarding “Forward-Looking Statements” below. Fluctuations in MongoDB’s operating results may be particularly pronounced due to adverse macroeconomic conditions and the continuing uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The situation regarding both the adverse macroeconomic environment and the COVID-19 pandemic remains uncertain and could change rapidly, and MongoDB will continue to evaluate the potential impact of both these factors on its business.
Reconciliation of non-GAAP income (loss) from operations and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share guidance to the most directly comparable GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to the charges excluded from these non-GAAP measures; in particular, the measures and effects of stock-based compensation expense specific to equity compensation awards that are directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuations in MongoDB’s stock price. MongoDB expects the variability of the above charges to have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on its future GAAP financial results.
