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-overyear 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.
