Autodesk Fourth Quarter Driven by Strong Growth in Suites and Cash Flow
Company Reiterates Long-term Financial Targets
Demand accelerated for our world leading portfolio of building information modeling (BIM) solutions. Our cloud-based BIM 360 tools had a terrific quarter as we continue to enable greater mobility and collaboration for our construction customers. Our cloud-based PLM 360 business also experienced continued momentum and had its best quarter to date.

Public Company Information:

NASDAQ:
ADSK

SAN RAFAEL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year ended January, 31, 2014. Revenue was $587 million. Normalized for the business model transition, revenue would have experienced approximately 2 percent growth year-over-year. GAAP diluted earnings per share were $0.23 and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share were $0.40.

Fourth quarter results exclude approximately $30 million of license revenue that was deferred as a result of the company's business model transition.

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2014 Highlights

  • Revenue from Suites increased 15 percent to $216 million, compared to the fourth quarter last year.
  • Operating margin was 9 percent on a GAAP basis and 20 percent on a non-GAAP basis. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is provided in the accompanying tables.
  • Deferred revenue increased 8 percent to $901 million, compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013. Normalized for the business model transition (noted above), deferred revenue would have experienced approximately 4 percent growth year-over-year.
  • Cash flow from operating activities increased 18 percent to $184 million, compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013.

"We closed our fiscal year with momentum marked by strong growth in suites and demand for our Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) solutions," said Carl Bass, Autodesk president and CEO. "Demand accelerated for our world leading portfolio of building information modeling (BIM) solutions. Our cloud-based BIM 360 tools had a terrific quarter as we continue to enable greater mobility and collaboration for our construction customers. Our cloud-based PLM 360 business also experienced continued momentum and had its best quarter to date."

Fourth Quarter Operational Overview

The business model transition (noted above) was related primarily to flexible license arrangements with certain enterprise customers. In the fourth quarter, the business model transition had particular impact on license revenue in the Americas and the AEC business segment.

Revenue in the Americas was $207 million. EMEA revenue was $229 million. Revenue in Asia Pacific was $150 million. Revenue from emerging economies was $88 million and represented 15 percent of total revenue in the fourth quarter.

Revenue from the Platform Solutions and Emerging Business (PSEB) segment was $196 million. Revenue from the AEC business segment was $196 million. Revenue from the Manufacturing business segment was $154 million. Revenue from the Media and Entertainment business (M&E) segment was $41 million.

Revenue from Flagship products was $288 million. Revenue from Suites was $216 million. Revenue from New and Adjacent products was $83 million.

"We were pleased with our fourth quarter performance, which included strong growth in cash flow from operations, solid growth in deferred revenue, and a significant sequential increase in backlog," said Mark Hawkins, Autodesk executive vice president and CFO. "We remain confident in our long-term model, which calls for a 12 percent billings compounded annual growth rate, 20 percent more annual value from our new and existing subscriptions, and a 50 percent increase in subscriptions by the end of our fiscal 2018. We believe we can accomplish this while getting to a 30 percent non-GAAP operating margin by the end of fiscal 2018."

“We are at the very beginning of a platform and model transition that will propel Autodesk to the future," Bass added. “We are focused on driving our subscription base, annual subscription value, and billings over the next four years and beyond. As anticipated, our transformation will start gradually and we expect will gain momentum as we go forward."

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, including statements in the paragraphs under “Business Outlook” above, statements regarding revenue growth, our business model transition, billings growth, subscription growth, annual subscription value growth, operating margin growth, demand for and adoption of suites, AEC, BIM and PLM solutions, and other statements regarding our strategies, market and products positions, performance, and results. There are a significant number of factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from statements made in this press release, including: general market, political, economic and business conditions; failure to maintain our revenue growth and profitability; failure to successfully manage transitions to new business models and markets, including the introduction of additional ratable revenue streams and our continuing efforts to attract customers to our cloud-based offerings and expenses related to the transition of our business model; failure to maintain cost reductions and productivity increases or otherwise control our expenses; our performance in particular geographies, including emerging economies; the ability of governments around the world to meet their financial and debt obligations, and finance infrastructure projects; weak or negative growth in the industries we serve; slowing momentum in subscription billings or revenues; difficulty in predicting revenue from new businesses and the potential impact on our financial results from changes in our business models; difficulties encountered in integrating new or acquired businesses and technologies; the inability to identify and realize the anticipated benefits of acquisitions; the financial and business condition of our reseller and distribution channels; dependence on and the timing of large transactions; fluctuation in foreign currency exchange rates; the success of our foreign currency hedging program; failure to achieve sufficient sell-through in our channels for new or existing products; pricing pressure; unexpected fluctuations in our tax rate; the timing and degree of expected investments in growth and efficiency opportunities; changes in the timing of product releases and retirements; and any unanticipated accounting charges.

Reconciliation of GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP financial measures
(In millions, except per share data)
                 
To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Autodesk provides investors with certain non-GAAP measures including non-GAAP cost of license and other revenue, non-GAAP cost of subscription revenue, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP restructuring charges (benefits), non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP interest and other income (expense), non-GAAP provision for income taxes, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP net income per share. These non-GAAP financial measures are adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses, gains and losses, including stock-based compensation expense, restructuring charges, amortization of purchased intangibles, gain and loss on strategic investments, and related income tax expenses. See our reconciliation of GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP financial measures herein. We believe these exclusions are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of our past financial performance and also our prospects for the future, as well as to facilitate comparisons with our historical operating results. These adjustments to our GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of Autodesk's underlying operational results and trends and our marketplace performance. For example, the non-GAAP results are an indication of our baseline performance before gains, losses or other charges that are considered by management to be outside our core operating results. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are among the primary indicators management uses as a basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods.
 
There are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures because the non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures are limited in value because they exclude certain items that may have a material impact upon our reported financial results. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP in the United States. Investors should review the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as provided in the tables accompanying this press release.
                 
The following table shows Autodesk's non-GAAP results reconciled to GAAP results included in this release.

(1) To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Autodesk provides investors with certain non-GAAP measures including non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP net income per share. These non-GAAP financial measures are adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses, gains and losses, including stock-based compensation expense, restructuring charges, amortization of purchased intangibles, gain and loss on strategic investments, and related income tax expenses. See our reconciliation of GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP financial measures herein. We believe these exclusions are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of our past financial performance and also our prospects for the future, as well as to facilitate comparisons with our historical operating results. These adjustments to our GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of Autodesk's underlying operational results and trends and our marketplace performance. For example, non-GAAP results are an indication of our baseline performance before gains, losses or other charges that are considered by management to be outside our core operating results. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are among the primary indicators management uses as a basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods. There are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures because the non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures are limited in value because they exclude certain items that may have a material impact upon our reported financial results. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP in the United States. Investors should review the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as provided in the tables accompanying Autodesk's press release.

Reconciliation for Business Model Transition:                    

The following is a reconciliation of the year-over-year rates discussed within:

                   
Impacted revenue line:   Total Revenue   License and other revenue   Flagship   AEC   Deferred Revenue
Stated year-over-year percent increase/(decrease)   (3 )%     (12 )%     (13 )%   (6 )%   8 %
Business Model Transition impact   5 %     9 %     10 %   14 %   (4 )%
Normalized year-over-year percent increase/(decrease)   2 %     (3 )%     (3 )%   8 %   4 %

Normalized year-over-year percent increase/(decrease)   6 %     (3 )%     3 %        
                     
Reconciliation for Guidance:                    

The following is a reconciliation of anticipated full year fiscal 2015 GAAP and non-GAAP operating margins:

                     
FY15 Revenue Growth   3%   5%            
GAAP operating margin   5 %     8 %              
Stock-based compensation expense   6 %     5 %              
Amortization of purchased intangibles   3 %     3 %              
Restructuring charges   %     %              
Non-GAAP operating margin   14 %     16 %              
                     
Reconciliation for Long Term Operating Margins:                    
Autodesk is not able to provide targets for our long term (ending with fiscal year 2018) GAAP operating margins at this time because of the difficulty of estimating certain items that are excluded from non-GAAP that affect operating margin, such as charges related to stock-based compensation expense and amortization of acquisition related intangibles, the effect of which may be significant.
