Trimble Reports Robust Financial Outcomes for First Quarter 2024, Showcasing Significant Growth

WESTMINSTER, Colo., May 3, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble Inc. (NASDAQ: TRMB), a global leader in technology solutions, today disclosed its first quarter financial outcomes for the year 2024, demonstrating a remarkable surge in revenue and margins.

First Quarter 2024 Financial Milestones

The company witnessed its annualized recurring revenue (ARR) soar to a record $2.03 billion, marking an impressive 23% year-over-year growth, and a solid 13% growth on an organic basis. Notably, the record GAAP gross margin reached 62.3%, while the non-GAAP gross margin climbed to an extraordinary 65.8%.

In terms of operating income, GAAP operating income was reported at $109.2 million, constituting 11.5% of revenue. Meanwhile, non-GAAP operating income remarkably stood at $234.4 million, representing 24.6% of revenue. In alignment with these robust results, the adjusted EBITDA was also significant at $250.9 million, signaling 26.3% of revenue.

Revenue Dynamics

Revenue for the first quarter reached $953.3 million, indicating a 4% year-over-year increase, while maintaining stability on an organic basis. The company's financial solidity was further evidenced through share repurchases amounting to $175.0 million.

Executive Insights

Rob Painter, Trimble's president and chief executive officer, expressed his contentment with the company's performance, "We had a strong start to the year, delivering record annualized recurring revenue of $2.03 billion and record first quarter gross margin. And on April 1, we closed our agriculture joint venture with AGCO. With our new reporting segment and organization structure in place, we have further simplified and focused the Company to enable our customers to transform how they work while creating value for our shareholders."

Forward-Looking Guidance

Looking ahead, Trimble anticipates full-year 2024 revenue to range between $3,570 million and $3,670 million, with a non-GAAP EPS of $2.60 to $2.80. For the second quarter of 2024 alone, expected revenue lies between $845 million and $875 million, coupled with non-GAAP EPS ranging from $0.56 to $0.60. These forecasts incorporate the expected contributions from the recent joint venture with AGCO, which commenced at the start of the second quarter.

However, Trimble advises that a quantitative reconciliation of these measures to GAAP is currently uncertain as the company is yet to finalize numerous adjustments, including the proper valuation of the agriculture business engaged in the AGCO joint venture.
