  • Total revenue increases to $651 million in first six months of 2022
  • Annual contract value grows 14 percent (19 percent in constant currency)

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — July 27, 2022 — Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the low-code platform provider that builds agility into the world's leading organizations, released its financial results for the second quarter of 2022.

"This year has turned out to be an extremely volatile business environment," said Alan Trefler, founder and CEO, Pegasystems. "The ongoing uncertainty will continue to put pressure on our clients. But this is an environment for which Pega is uniquely suited, as our low-code platform allows these same organizations to more easily adapt to change."

"In the first half of 2022, we've grown annual contract value ("ACV") 19 percent year-over-year in constant currency while showing additional signs of improving profitability," said Ken Stillwell, COO and CFO, Pegasystems. "We're doubling down on our work to become a Rule of 40 company in 2024."

Discussion of non-GAAP financial measures

We believe that non-GAAP financial measures help investors understand our core operating results and prospects, consistent with how management measures and forecasts our performance without the effect of often one-time charges and other items outside our normal operations. The supplementary non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be superior to or a substitute for financial measures prepared under U.S. GAAP.

Reconciliations of our non-GAAP and GAAP measures are at the end of this release.
