Financial report summary

?
Risks
  • We have incurred losses each year since our inception, we expect our operating expenses to increase, and we may not become profitable in the future.
  • We may not be able to sustain our revenue growth rate in the future.
  • Our sales efforts involve considerable time and expense and our sales cycle is often long and unpredictable.
  • Historically, existing customers have expanded their relationships with us, which has resulted in a limited number of customers accounting for a substantial portion of our revenue. If existing customers do not make subsequent purchases from us or renew their contracts with us, or if our relationships with our largest customers are impaired or terminated, our revenue could decline, and our results of operations would be adversely impacted.
  • We may not realize the full deal value of our customer contracts, which may result in lower than expected revenue.
  • Our results of operations and our key business measures are likely to fluctuate significantly on a quarterly basis in future periods and may not fully reflect the underlying performance of our business, which makes our future results difficult to predict and could cause our results of operations to fall below expectations.
  • Seasonality may cause fluctuations in our results of operations and financial position.
  • Our platforms are complex and may have a lengthy implementation process, and any failure of our platforms to satisfy our customers or perform as desired could harm our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
  • If we do not successfully develop and deploy new technologies to address the needs of our customers, our business and results of operations could suffer.
  • The competitive position of our platforms depends in part on their ability to operate with third-party products and services, and if we are not successful in maintaining and expanding the compatibility of our platforms with such third-party products and services, our business, financial condition, and results of operations could be adversely impacted.
  • If we fail to manage future growth effectively, our business could be harmed.
  • If we are unable to hire, retain, train, and motivate qualified personnel and senior management, including Alexander Karp, one of our founders and our Chief Executive Officer, and deploy our personnel and resources to meet customer demand around the world, our business could suffer.
  • If we are unable to successfully build, expand, and deploy our marketing and sales organization in a timely manner, or at all, or to successfully hire, retain, train, and motivate our sales personnel, our growth and long-term success could be adversely impacted.
  • Our ability to sell our platforms and satisfy our customers is dependent on the quality of our services, and our failure to offer high quality services could have a material adverse effect on our sales and results of operations.
  • If we are not able to maintain and enhance our brand and reputation, our relationships with our customers, partners, and employees may be harmed, and our business and results of operations may be adversely affected.
  • Our reputation and business may be harmed by news or social media coverage of Palantir, including but not limited to coverage that presents, or relies on, inaccurate, misleading, incomplete, or otherwise damaging information.
  • Because we recognize a substantial portion of our revenue from our platforms and O&M services over the contractual term, downturns or upturns in new sales and renewals may not be immediately reflected in our results of operations.
  • Our pricing structures for our platforms and services may change from time to time, which could adversely impact our business, financial condition, and results of operations.
  • If our customers are not able or willing to accept our product-based business model, instead of a labor-based business model, our business and results of operations could be negatively impacted.
  • We have entered into, and expect in the future to enter into, agreements with our customers that include exclusivity arrangements or unique contractual or pricing terms, which may result in significant risks or liabilities to us.
  • We face intense competition in our markets, and we may lack sufficient financial or other resources to maintain or improve our competitive position.
  • Our culture emphasizes rapid innovation and advancement of successful hires who may in some cases have limited prior industry expertise and prioritizes customer outcomes over short-term financial results, and if we cannot maintain or properly manage our culture as we grow, our business may be harmed.
  • We may not enter into relationships with potential customers if we consider their activities to be inconsistent with our organizational mission or values.
  • We do not work with the Chinese communist party and have chosen not to host our platforms in China, which may limit our growth prospects.
  • Joint ventures, channel sales relationships, platform partnerships, and strategic alliances may have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and prospects.
  • If we are not successful in executing our sales strategy our results of operations may suffer.
  • The ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected our business and operations.
  • If the market for our platforms and services develops more slowly than we expect, our growth may slow or stall, and our business, financial condition, and results of operations could be harmed.
  • We will face risks associated with the growth of our business in new commercial markets and with new customer verticals, and we may neither be able to continue our organic growth nor have the necessary resources to dedicate to the overall growth of our business.
  • In the future, we may not be able to secure the financing necessary to operate and grow our business as planned, or to make acquisitions.
  • Our debt agreements contain restrictions that may limit our flexibility in operating our business.
  • Variable rate indebtedness that we may incur under our revolving credit facility will subject us to interest rate risk, which could cause our debt service obligations to increase significantly.
  • We may acquire or invest in companies and technologies, which may divert our management’s attention, and result in additional dilution to our stockholders. We may be unable to integrate acquired businesses and technologies successfully or achieve the expected benefits of such acquisitions or investments. We are subject to risks associated with our investments, including a partial or complete loss of invested capital.
  • If any of the systems of any third parties upon which we rely, our customers’ cloud or on-premises environments, or our internal systems, are breached or if unauthorized access to customer or third-party data is otherwise obtained, public perception of our platforms and O&M services may be harmed, and we may lose business and incur losses or liabilities.
  • Issues raised by the use of artificial intelligence (“AI”) (including machine learning) in our platforms may result in reputational harm or liability.
  • We depend on computing infrastructure operated by Amazon Web Services (“AWS”), Microsoft, and other third parties to support some of our customers and any errors, disruption, performance problems, or failure in their or our operational infrastructure could adversely affect our business, financial condition, and results of operations.
  • Our policies regarding customer confidential information and support for individual privacy and civil liberties could cause us to experience adverse business and reputational consequences.
  • Failure to adequately obtain, maintain, protect and enforce our intellectual property and other proprietary rights could adversely affect our business.
  • We have been, and may in the future be, subject to intellectual property rights claims, which are extremely costly to defend, could require us to pay significant damages and could limit our ability to use certain technologies.
  • Real or perceived errors, failures, defects, or bugs in our platforms could adversely affect our results of operations and growth prospects.
  • We rely on the availability of licenses to third-party technology that may be difficult to replace or that may cause errors or delay implementation of our platforms and services should we not be able to continue or obtain a commercially reasonable license to such technology.
  • Our platforms contain “open source” software, and any failure to comply with the terms of one or more of these open source licenses could negatively affect our business.
  • Our business is subject to complex and evolving U.S. and non-U.S. laws and regulations regarding privacy, data protection and security, technology protection, and other matters. Many of these laws and regulations are subject to change and uncertain interpretation, and could result in claims, changes to our business practices, monetary penalties, increased cost of operations, or otherwise harm our business.
  • Our non-U.S. sales and operations subject us to additional risks and regulations that can adversely affect our results of operations.
  • Failure to comply with governmental laws and regulations could harm our business, and we have been, and expect to be, the subject of legal and regulatory inquiries, which may result in monetary payments or may otherwise negatively impact our reputation, business, and results of operations.
  • We have previously been, and may currently or in the future become, involved in a number of legal, regulatory, and administrative inquiries and proceedings, and unfavorable outcomes in litigation or other of these matters could negatively impact our business, financial conditions, and results of operations.
  • Failure to comply with anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws could subject us to penalties and other adverse consequences.
  • Governmental trade controls, including export and import controls, sanctions, customs requirements, and related regimes, could subject us to liability or loss of contracting privileges or limit our ability to compete in certain markets.
  • Changes in accounting principles or their application to us could result in unfavorable accounting charges or effects, which could adversely affect our results of operations and growth prospects.
  • If our judgments or estimates relating to our critical accounting policies are based on assumptions that change or prove to be incorrect, our results of operations could fall below expectations of securities analysts and investors, resulting in a decline in our stock price.
  • We could be subject to additional tax liabilities.
  • We may not be able to utilize a significant portion of our net operating loss carryforwards and tax credits, which could adversely affect our results of operations.
  • Our results of operations may be harmed if we are required to collect sales or other related taxes for our license arrangements in jurisdictions where we have not historically done so.
  • A significant portion of our business depends on sales to the public sector, and our failure to receive and maintain government contracts or changes in the contracting or fiscal policies of the public sector could have a material adverse effect on our business.
  • We have contracts with governments that involve classified programs, which may limit investor insight into portions of our business.
  • Our business could be adversely affected if our employees cannot obtain and maintain required personnel security clearances or we cannot establish and maintain a required facility security clearance.
  • Many of our customer contracts may be terminated by the customer at any time for convenience and may contain other provisions permitting the customer to discontinue contract performance, and if terminated contracts are not replaced, our results of operations may differ materially and adversely from those anticipated. In addition, our contracts with government customers often contain provisions with additional rights and remedies favorable to such customers that are not typically found in commercial contracts.
  • Failure to comply with laws, regulations, or contractual provisions applicable to our business could cause us to lose government customers or our ability to contract with the U.S. and other governments.
  • Evolving government procurement policies and increased emphasis on cost over performance could adversely affect our business.
  • Increased competition and bid protests in a budget-constrained environment may make it more difficult to maintain our financial performance and customer relationships.
  • The U.S. government may procure non-commercial developmental services rather than commercial products, which could materially impact our future U.S. government business and revenue.
  • A decline in the U.S. and other government budgets, changes in spending or budgetary priorities, or delays in contract awards may significantly and adversely affect our future revenue and limit our growth prospects.
  • The public trading price of our Class A common stock may be volatile and may decline regardless of our operating performance.
  • Our amended and restated bylaws designate a state or federal court located within the State of Delaware as the exclusive forum for substantially all disputes between us and our stockholders, and also provide that the federal district courts will be the exclusive forum for resolving any complaint asserting a cause of action arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, each of which could limit our stockholders’ ability to choose the judicial forum for disputes with us or our directors, officers, stockholders, or employees.
  • Sales of substantial amounts of our Class A common stock in the public markets or the perception that sales might occur, including sales by our Founders and their affiliates, could cause the trading price of our Class A common stock to decline.
  • Provisions in our amended and restated certificate of incorporation and amended and restated bylaws may discourage certain types of transactions that may involve an actual or threatened acquisition of the Company, which will likely depress the trading price of our Class A common stock.
  • If securities or industry analysts do not publish research or publish inaccurate or unfavorable research about us, our business or our market, or if they change their recommendation regarding our Class A common stock adversely, the trading price and trading volume of our Class A common stock could decline.
  • Although we currently are not considered to be a “controlled company” under the NYSE corporate governance rules, we may in the future become a controlled company due to the concentration of voting power among our Founders and their affiliates.
  • We do not expect to pay dividends in the foreseeable future.
  • The multiple class structure of our common stock has the effect of concentrating voting power with certain stockholders, in particular, our Founders and their affiliates, which will effectively eliminate your ability to influence the outcome of important transactions, including a change in control.
  • The Founder Voting Trust Agreement and the Founder Voting Agreement also have the effect of concentrating voting power with our Founders and their affiliates, which will effectively eliminate your ability to influence the outcome of important transactions, including a change in control.
  • In certain circumstances in the future, the Founders and their affiliates could have voting power that exceeds 49.999999% of the Voting Power.
  • As a result of future issuances of our common stock or the disposal of shares of our common stock by our Founders and their affiliates, our Founders and their affiliates could have voting power that is substantially greater than, and outsized in comparison to, their economic interests and the percentage of our common stock that they hold.
  • Shares of our common stock designated by one or more of our Founders pursuant to our amended and restated certificate of incorporation may be voted or not voted by such Founders or their affiliates in their discretion and will reduce the voting power exercised in accordance with the decision of a majority in number of the Founders who are then party to the Founder Voting Agreement.
  • The Ownership Threshold that must be met on any applicable record date is a small minority of our outstanding Corporation Equity Securities, and future issuances of Corporation Equity Securities may decrease this percentage.
  • The multiple class structure of our common stock features certain provisions that are novel or otherwise not common among other corporations with multiple class structures.
  • The multi-class structure of our common stock, the Founder Voting Trust Agreement and the Founder Voting Agreement by which our Founders exercise effective control over all matters submitted to a vote of our stockholders will exist for the foreseeable future.
  • Our governance structure may negatively affect the decision by certain institutional investors to purchase or hold shares of our Class A common stock.
  • Future issuances of our Class A common stock will dilute the voting power of our Class A common stockholders but may not result in further dilution of the voting power of our Founders who are then party to the Founder Voting Agreement.
  • Adverse economic conditions or reduced technology spending may adversely impact our business.
  • Natural disasters and other catastrophic events beyond our control could harm our business.
  • If we fail to maintain an effective system of internal controls, our ability to produce timely and accurate financial statements or comply with applicable regulations could be impaired.
  • We will incur increased costs and demands upon management as a result of complying with the laws and regulations affecting public companies which could adversely affect our business, financial condition, and results of operations.
  • We may face exposure to foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.
Management Discussion
  • (1) Includes stock-based compensation expense.
  • Revenue increased by $105.1 million, or 31%, for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the same period in 2021. Revenue from government customers increased by $33.4 million, or 16%, for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the same period in 2021, primarily from customers in the United States. Of the increase, $33.0 million was from government customers existing as of December 31, 2021. Generally, increases in revenue from our existing customers are related to increased adoption of our products and services within their organizations. Revenue from commercial customers increased by $71.8 million, or 54%, for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the same period in 2021. Of the increase, $53.8 million was from existing customers as of December 31, 2021, of which $26.8 million was revenue from customers with which we have entered into concurrent Investment Agreements. For additional information, see Note 4. Investments and Fair Value Measurements and Note 7. Commitments and Contingencies in our condensed consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
  • Cost of revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2022 increased by $20.3 million, or 27%, compared to the same period in 2021. The increase was primarily due to increases of $14.3 million in third-party cloud hosting services driven by increased usage by
