The company beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate in each of the last four quarters, delivering an average earnings surprise of 319.49%.

Let’s see how things have shaped up before the announcement.

Factors Likely to Influence Q1 Results

Gitlab’s fiscal first-quarter results are expected to have benefited from improved buying behavior across all customer sizes, particularly with enterprise customers. This normalization is expected to have continued and be driven by the further adoption of their DevSecOps platform.

The company had a record quarter for net additions of customers with $100,000 and $1 million Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) in fourth-quarter fiscal 2024. This momentum is expected to have persisted, driven by the increasing adoption of Gitlab’s DevSecOps platform among large enterprises.
The Ultimate tier, Gitlab’s top offering, is likely to have continued witnessing robust growth driven by security and compliance use cases. This tier represented more than 50% of the fourth quarter’s ARR bookings, indicating strong demand for advanced features and services.

Gitlab Duo, the company’s AI offering, is gaining traction. Features like Code Suggestions and Gitlab Duo Pro are attracting customers aiming to enhance engineering productivity and secure coding practices. The monetization of AI capabilities at $19 per user per month is expected to have attracted more customers and boost ARR.

Gitlab Dedicated, a single-tenant SaaS solution, is seeing increasing adoption among large enterprises such as Barclays and Blue Halo. This growth is expected to have continued as more organizations prioritize data isolation and residency requirements.

SaaS now represents over 25% of Gitlab’s total revenue and has grown 52% year-over-year in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2024. This growth is expected to have been a tailwind for the company  in the to-be-reported quarter.

In fiscal fourth quarter, Gitlab introduced a new Enterprise Agile Planning SKU designed to streamline integration for Gitlab Ultimate customers, bringing everyone onto a single, secure platform. This offering is expected to have enhanced the overall value of the Gitlab investment.
