Shares of Palantir plunged more than 15% in premarket Monday after the company issued a weaker-than-expected revenue outlook and missed its first-quarter earnings bottom line.

Here are the key numbers:

  • Earnings per share (EPS): 2 hundred adj. vs 4 cents expected, according to a Refinitiv survey of analysts
  • Revenue: $446 million vs $443 million expected, per Refinitiv

Palantir said it expects $470 million in revenue for the current quarter, which is lower than analysts’ expectations of $483.7 million, per FactSet. The software company, known for its work with the government, said there is a “wide range of potential benefits” in its guidance “including those driven by our role in responding to developing geopolitical events”.

It reported a net loss of $101.38 million for the quarter, an improvement from $156.19 million in the fourth quarter of 2021.

For the full year 2022, it continues to anticipate an adjusted operating margin of 27%. It also projects annual revenue growth of 30% or more through 2025.

Revenue for the quarter increased 31% year-on-year to $446 million. Commercial revenue for the period increased 54% from the same quarter a year ago, while government revenue increased 16%. The company’s customer base grew 86% year over year.
