In fiscal 2018, Sumo Logic reported a net loss of $32.4 million on $67.8 million in revenue. In fiscal 2019, it experienced a net loss of $47.7 million on $103.6 million in revenue. And in fiscal 2020, Sumo Logic reported a net loss of $92.1 million on $155 million in revenue.
In the tech sector — and more specifically, the SaaS industry — growth is often pursued over profit. Young companies like Sumo Logic may not be as preoccupied with profitability as it focuses on scaling its operations and acquiring smaller businesses to help extend its reach. That said, Sumo Logic isn’t a profitable company. Its revenue is growing, but so are its losses.
In addition to competitors like Splunk and Datadog, Sumo Logic is also up against the likes of Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud. The tech industry is competitive enough as it is, and Sumo Logic is stepping into the ring with some well-established heavy hitters.
Continuous pricing pressure coupled with the ever-evolving market could potentially harm Sumo Logic’s business. Past performance is no guarantee of future profitability and no investment is risk-free.
