UiPath Down In Pre-market Following Cautious Outlook

Shares of enterprise automation software company UiPath Inc. (PATH) are down more than 15% in pre-market on Thursday following a tepid outlook provided by the company for its first quarter as well as full year.

"Looking ahead, we feel confident in our market leading position in automation and prospects for future growth at scale but believe it is prudent at this time to factor both our European exposure and go-to-market leadership transition into the financial outlook we are providing this afternoon," commented Daniel Dines, UiPath Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer.
