Financial Highlights1

Fourth Quarter 2022

In the fourth quarter, cloud revenue was up 30% to €3.39 billion and up 22% at constant currencies. SAP S/4HANA cloud revenue further accelerated and was up 101% to €0.66 billion and up 90% at constant currencies.

Software licenses revenue was down 38% to €0.91 billion and down 39% at constant currencies. Cloud and software revenue was up 4% to €7.29 billion and flat at constant currencies. Services revenue was up 15% to €1.14 billion and up 10% at constant currencies. Total revenue was up 6% to €8.44 billion and up 1% at constant currencies.

The share of more predictable revenue increased by 6 percentage points to 76% in the fourth quarter.

Cloud gross profit was up 36% (IFRS), up 34% (non-IFRS) and up 27% (non-IFRS at constant currencies). Cloud gross margin was up 2.9 percentage points to 69.4% (IFRS), up 2.3 percentage points to 71.3% (non-IFRS) and up 2.7 percentage points to 71.6% (non-IFRS at constant currencies). This increase was driven by expanding gross margins across all cloud business models, with efficiency gains overcompensating increased investments into our next generation cloud delivery program.

IFRS operating profit increased 17% to €1.71 billion and IFRS operating margin increased by 1.9 percentage points to 20.2%. Non-IFRS operating profit was up 5% to €2.58 billion and up 2% at constant currencies. Non-IFRS operating margin decreased by 0.3 percentage points to 30.6% and was up 0.3 percentage points to 31.2% at constant currencies. The increase in profitability was supported by disciplined spend management in the fourth quarter. In addition, IFRS operating profit included a disposal gain of €175 million and non-IFRS operating profit of €109 million related to the sale of the SAP Litmos business.

IFRS earnings per share decreased 62% to €0.47 and non-IFRS earnings per share decreased 46% to €1.00. The year-over-year decline of earnings per share reflects a contribution to financial income by Sapphire Ventures that, mainly due to market conditions, was significantly lower than in the same period last year. The effective tax rate was 56.3% (IFRS) and 37.0% (non-IFRS). The year-over-year increase mainly resulted from changes in tax-exempt income related to Sapphire Ventures, which were partly compensated by changes in non-deductible expenses in IFRS.

At year end, current cloud backlog expanded to €12.03 billion, growing by 27% and 24% at constant currencies. Current cloud backlog growth was negatively impacted by approximately 1.5 percentage points from the divestiture of our Litmos business and the wind down of our business operations in Russia and Belarus. SAP S/4HANA current cloud backlog was up 86% to €3.17 billion and up 82% at constant currencies.

As of December 31, total cloud backlog – which is defined as the contractually committed cloud revenue we expect to recognize in future periods – was up 35% to €34.2 billion.

For the full year, cloud revenue was up 33% to €12.56 billion and up 24% at constant currencies, driven by double-digit growth across the SaaS and PaaS portfolio. SAP S/4HANA cloud revenue was up 91% to €2.08 billion and up 79% at constant currencies.

Software licenses revenue was down 37% to €2.06 billion and down 39% at constant currencies. Despite lower software licenses revenue, cloud and software revenue was up 10% to €26.52 billion and up 4% at constant currencies. Services revenue was up 16% to €4.35 billion and up 9% at constant currencies. Total revenue was up 11% to €30.87 billion and up 5% at constant currencies.

The share of more predictable revenue increased by 4 percentage points year over year to 79% for the full year 2022.

Cloud gross profit was up 38% (IFRS), 37% (non-IFRS) and 28% (non-IFRS at constant currencies). Cloud gross margin was up 2.3 percentage points to 69.3% (IFRS), up 1.8 percentage points to 71.3% (non-IFRS) and up 2.1 percentage points to 71.6% (non-IFRS at constant currencies). This 2.1 percentage point increase was driven by expanding gross margins across all cloud business models, with efficiency gains overcompensating increased investments into the next generation cloud delivery program.

IFRS operating profit was flat at €4.67 billion and IFRS operating margin decreased by 1.6 percentage points to 15.1%. Non-IFRS operating profit decreased 2% to €8.03 billion and decreased 7% at constant currencies and non-IFRS operating margin decreased by 3.5 percentage points to 26.0% and was down 3.2 percentage points to 26.4% at constant currencies. Operating profit performance was impacted by the decision to wind down business operations in Russia and Belarus, and a reduced contribution from software licenses revenue as well as accelerated investments into research and development and sales & marketing to capture current and future growth opportunities.

IFRS earnings per share decreased 56% to €1.96 and non-IFRS earnings per share decreased 39% to €4.08. The year-over-year decline of earnings per share reflects a contribution to financial income by Sapphire Ventures that, due to market conditions faced throughout the year, was significantly lower than in the same period last year. Effective tax rate was 44.6% (IFRS) and 29.5% (non-IFRS). The year-over-year increase mainly resulted from changes in tax-exempt income related to Sapphire Ventures.

Free cash flow for the full year was down 14% to €4.35 billion, in line with the revised outlook of approximately €4.5 billion. This is predominantly due to lower profitability and adverse working capital impacts in other assets. While tax payments developed positively, smaller negative impacts came from share-based payments as well as capital expenditures and leasing. In addition, the increased volume of trade receivables sold in 2022 amounting to €0.8 billion versus €0.5 billion in 2021 had a positive impact on free cash flow. At year end, net debt was €2.07 billion.

Impact of War in Ukraine

In 2022, SAP's business was impacted by the war in Ukraine and SAP's decision to wind down its business operations in Russia and Belarus.

At the end of the fourth quarter, current cloud backlog was approximately €62 million lower due to the termination of existing cloud engagements in Russia and Belarus, reducing current cloud backlog growth by approximately half a percentage point at constant currencies. The impact on full-year IFRS operating profit was approximately €410 million (fourth quarter: €70 million) and approximately €290 million (fourth quarter: €70 million) on non-IFRS operating profit, mainly due to reduced revenues and bad debt provisions.

Other impacts due to this evolving situation are currently unknown and could potentially subject our business to materially adverse consequences should the situation escalate beyond its current scope.

Non-Financial Performance 2022

Customer Net Promoter Score (NPS) decreased 7 points year over year to 3 in 2022, achieving the lower end of the revised outlook range.

SAP's Employee Engagement Index decreased 3 percentage points to 80%, reflecting a continued high level of engagement at the low end of the revised outlook range. SAP's retention rate was 92.3%, closely aligning with 2021 at 92.8%. The proportion of women in management increased to 29.4%, an increase of 1.1 percentage points year over year. In the fourth quarter, the Company also reached 35% of women in the workforce.

Net carbon emissions continued to decrease, at 95 kilotons in 2022, down 15 kt year over year. This result is at the upper end of the revised outlook range.

Business Outlook

Financial Outlook 2023

  • €8.8 – 9.1 billion non-IFRS operating profit at constant currencies (2022: €8.03 billion), up 10% to 13% at constant currencies.
  • The share of more predictable revenue (defined as the total of cloud revenue and software support revenue divided by total revenue) is expected to reach approximately 83% (2022: 79%).
  • Free cash flow of approximately €5.0 billion (2022: €4.35 billion).
  • A full-year effective tax rate (IFRS) of 28.0% to 32.0% (2022: 44.6%) and an effective tax rate (non-IFRS) of 26.0% to 28.0% (2022: 29.5%), strongly depending on the development of Sapphire Ventures' investments.

While SAP's full-year 2023 business outlook is at constant currencies, actual currency reported figures are expected to be impacted by currency exchange rate fluctuations as the Company progresses through the year. See the table below.

  • a Customer Net Promoter Score of 8 to 12[4].
  • an Employee Engagement Index to be in a range of 76% to 80%.
  • Net carbon emissions of 0kt, meaning the Company will be carbon neutral in its own operations.

Ambition 2025

Increased Focus on Strategic Growth Areas and Accelerated Cloud Transformation

In 2023, SAP will conduct a targeted restructuring program in selected areas of the company. The purpose is to further focus on strategic growth areas by aligning our operating models and go-to-market approach with our accelerated cloud transformation. Furthermore, SAP intends to strengthen its core business and improve overall process efficiency. The program is expected to affect approximately 2.5% of SAP's employees. The vast majority of the €250 million to €300 million restructuring costs associated with the program is expected to be recognized in the first quarter 2023, impacting IFRS operating profit. The program is expected to provide a moderate cost benefit in 2023 and €300 million to €350 million in annual cost savings as of 2024, impacting both IFRS and Non-IFRS operating profit which will help to fuel investments into strategic growth areas. The expected cost savings and reinvestments are fully reflected in SAP's financial outlook for 2023 and 2025 ambitions.

SAP to Explore a Sale of its Stake in Qualtrics

In line with SAP's strategic initiative to streamline its portfolio, SAP has decided to explore a sale of its stake in Qualtrics.

This would be a continuation of the strategy we set at the time of the Qualtrics IPO in 2021. SAP believes that this potential transaction could unlock significant value for both companies and their shareholders: for SAP, to focus more on its core cloud growth and profitability; for Qualtrics, to extend its leadership in the XM category that it pioneered.

Since the acquisition, Qualtrics has increased revenue by 3.5x to ~ $1.5 billion while delivering profitability, and has significantly expanded its offerings and enterprise customer adoption. In the event of a successful transaction, SAP intends to remain a go-to-market and technology partner, servicing its joint customers and contributing to its growth and category leadership.

A final decision on any transaction, its conditions and timing is subject to market conditions, agreement on acceptable terms, regulatory approvals and the approval of the SAP SE Supervisory Board. SAP has retained Morgan Stanley as financial advisor to assist in the exploration of the sale of its stake in Qualtrics.
