  • If we fail to effectively manage our growth, our business and operating results could be adversely affected.
  • We have a history of losses, and we may not be profitable in the future.
  • Our cloud services, including Splunk Cloud Platform, require costly and continual infrastructure investments, and if our transition to a cloud-based business model is not successful, our business could be adversely affected.

  • Our ability to use our net operating losses and tax credits to offset future taxes may be subject to certain limitations.
  • Taxing authorities may successfully assert that we should have collected or in the future should collect sales and use, value added, withholding, or similar taxes, and we could be subject to liability with respect to past or future sales, which could adversely affect our financial results.
  • The near and long-term impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic on our business, results of operations and cash flows remain uncertain.
  • We face intense competition in our markets, and we may be unable to compete effectively against our current and future competitors.

  • We are subject to governmental export and import controls that could impair our ability to compete in international markets or subject us to liability if we violate the controls.
  • If customers do not expand their use of our offerings beyond the current predominant use cases, our ability to grow our business and operating results may be adversely affected.
  • Our business and growth depend substantially on customers entering into, renewing, upgrading and expanding their term licenses, agreements for cloud services and maintenance and support agreements with us. Any decline in our customer renewals, upgrades or expansions could adversely affect our future operating results.
  • We employ multiple and evolving pricing models, which subject us to various pricing and licensing challenges that could make it difficult for us to derive value from our customers and may adversely affect our operating results.

  • Interruptions or performance problems associated with our technology and infrastructure, and our reliance on Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”) technologies from third parties, may adversely affect our business operations and financial results.
  • Real or perceived errors, failures or bugs in our offerings could adversely affect our financial results and growth prospects.

  • Failure to protect our intellectual property rights could adversely affect our business and our brand.
  • We have been, and may in the future be, subject to intellectual property rights claims by third parties, which are extremely costly to defend, could require us to pay significant damages and could limit our ability to use certain technologies.
  • If we are not able to maintain and enhance our brand, our business and operating results may be adversely affected.
  • Our use of “open source” software could negatively affect our ability to sell our offerings and subject us to possible litigation, and our participation in open source projects may impose unanticipated burdens or restrictions.
  • We increasingly rely on third-party providers of cloud infrastructure services to deliver our offerings to users on our platform, and any disruption of or interference with our use of these services could adversely affect our business.
  • If we are unable to maintain successful relationships with our partners, and to help our partners enhance their ability to independently sell and deploy our offerings, our business operations, financial results and growth prospects could be adversely affected.

  • If poor advice or misinformation is spread through our community website, Splunk Answers, users of our offerings may experience unsatisfactory results from using our offerings, which could adversely affect our reputation and our ability to grow our business.

  • The requirements of being a public company and a growing and increasingly complex organization may strain our resources, divert management’s attention and affect our ability to attract and retain executive management and qualified board members.
