Nutanix Inc. shares dove more than 20% in after-hours trading Wednesday following a poor fourth-quarter forecast.

executives guided for fiscal fourth-quarter revenue of $340 million to $360 million and billings of $175 million to $185 million, while analysts on average were expecting revenue of $439 million and billings of $215.8 million, according to FactSet. As a result, they pulled down their annual forecast to revenue of $1.54 billion to $1.56 billion, after previously stating roughly $1.63 billion, and billings of $735 million to $745 million, after previously stating $760 million to $765 million.

“Late in the third quarter, we saw an unexpected impact from challenges that limited our upside in the quarter and affected our outlook for the fourth quarter,” Chief Executive Rajiv Ramaswami said in a statement. “Increased supply chain delays with our hardware partners account for the significant majority of the impact to our outlook, and higher-than-expected sales rep attrition in the third quarter was also a factor.”

“We don’t believe these challenges reflect any change in demand for our hybrid multicloud platform, and we remain focused on mitigating the impact of these issues and continuing to execute on the opportunity in front of us.”

Supply-chain issues have bedeviled tech companies reliant on hardware in recent weeks, with Cisco Systems Inc.

as a prime example. Nutanix has attempted to move away from its hardware roots and focus on “hyperconvergence” software, but Cisco executives noted that software sales were also held up by customers needing relevant hardware to run the software.

Like Cisco, Nutanix hit its numbers while offering a disappointing forecast. Nutanix reported a fiscal third-quarter loss of $111.6 million, or 50 cents a share; after adjusting for stock-based compensation and other effects, Nutanix reported a loss of 5 cents a share, an improvement from last year’s adjusted loss of 41 cents a share. Revenue grew to $403.7 million from $344.5 million a year ago, and billings grew to $204.7 million from $159.9 million. Analysts on average expected an adjusted loss of 22 cents a share on sales of $398 million and billings of $197.9 million, according to FactSet.

Nutanix shares have declined 32.8% so far this year, as the S&P 500 index
