We report non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). See the section titled “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for an explanation of non-GAAP financial measures and the tables in the section titled “Reconciliation Between GAAP and Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.

Financial Outlook

Our guidance includes GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures. For the first quarter and fiscal year 2024, Samsara expects the following:

 Q1 FY2024 Outlook FY 2024 Outlook
Total revenue$190 million – $192 million $838 million – $848 million
Year/Year growth33% – 35% 28% – 30%
Non-GAAP operating margin(15%) (7%)
Non-GAAP net loss per share($0.05) – ($0.06) ($0.05) – ($0.07)

A reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance financial measures to corresponding GAAP guidance financial measures is not available on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort due to the uncertainty and potential variability of expenses, such as stock-based compensation expense-related charges, that may be incurred in the future and cannot be reasonably determined or predicted at this time. It is important to note that these factors could be material to our results of operations computed in accordance with GAAP.
