GitLab reported third-quarter adjusted earnings per share of $-0.10 and revenue of $113 million. Both figures turned out to be better than Wall Street expectations for $-0.15 and $106 million in sales. GTLB stock had already sold off more than 7% on Monday, so the shock of considerably better-than-predicted results worked wonders in the post-market session with shares rising above $45.
Management also cheered on the stock by guiding for between $119 and $120 million in sales for the fourth quarter. The guidance on adjusted EPS though was somewhat worse at $-0.14 to $-0.15 compared with Q3.
“Our third quarter results continue to demonstrate our ability to drive high growth with improving margins,” said GitLab CFO Brian Robins.
