Let’s see how things have shaped up prior to the announcement.
Factors Likely to Influence Q3 Results
GitLab’s third-quarter results are expected to benefit from a strong subscription-based business model and robust adoption of its AI-powered DevSecOps platform.
Strong growth in subscription revenues has been driving GitLab’s top-line prospects. In second-quarter fiscal 2024, subscription, self-managed and SaaS revenues increased 37.3% year over year and accounted for 87.5% of revenues. The trend is expected to have continued in the to-be-reported quarter.
Customers with more than $5,000 of Annual Recurring Revenues (ARR) increased 33% year over year to reach 7,815 in the last reported quarter. Customers with ARR of more than $100,000 increased 37% year over year to reach 810. The number of customers is expected to have increased in the soon-to-be-reported quarter.
The company’s plan to enhance user limits on its free-sized tier, resulting in the upgrade of its free users to premium, is expected to have driven its top line in the quarter.

Gitlab announced updates to GitLab Duo Chat, which is intended to increase team communication, lower security and compliance risks associated with artificial intelligence adoption, and help users with real-time guidance, insights, and suggestions to analyze code.
