Autodesk Reports Strong Third Quarter Results
Company Grows Deferred Revenue to a Record $1 Billion and Raises Billings, Revenue and Subscriptions Outlook for Fiscal Year 2015

SAN RAFAEL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADSK) today reported financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2015.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2015

  • Total billings increased 25 percent, compared to the third quarter last year.

  • Total maintenance, desktop (rental), and cloud subscriptions increased by approximately 121,000 from the second quarter of fiscal 2015, including approximately 25,000 subscriptions related to Delcam.

"Strong billings and revenue growth was driven by strength in several areas including suites, our Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) and Manufacturing business segments, large deal activity, and double-digit growth in all three of our major geographies on a constant currency basis," said Carl Bass, Autodesk president and CEO. "We continue to make meaningful progress in our transition to a more recurring, subscription-based business, adding approximately 121,000 subscriptions and more flexible enterprise license agreements. As a result, deferred revenue increased significantly to a record $1 billion. These strong results have led us to raise our outlook for billings and revenue for fiscal 2015 for the third time this year."

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 gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per share and billings. Excluding billings, 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. In the case of billings, we reconcile to revenue by adjusting for the change in deferred revenue from the beginning to the end of the period less any deferred revenue balances acquired from business combination(s) during the period and other discounts. 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 this press release.

(a) Totals may not agree with the sum of the components due to rounding.

(b) Earnings per share were computed independently for each of the periods presented; therefore the sum of the earnings per share amounts for the quarters may not equal the total for the year.
(c) Total Subscriptions consists of subscriptions from our maintenance, desktop, cloud service and enterprise license offerings that are active as of the quarter end date. For certain cloud based and enterprise license offerings, subscriptions represent the monthly average activity within the last three months of the quarter end date. Total subscriptions do not include data from education offerings, consumer product offerings, certain Creative Finishing product offerings, Autodesk Buzzsaw, Autodesk Constructware and third party products. Subscriptions acquired with the acquisition of a business are captured once the data conforms to our subscription count methodology and when added, may cause variability in the quarterly comparisons of this calculation.

 

(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, non-GAAP net income per share and billings. Excluding billings, 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. In the case of billings, we reconcile to revenue by adjusting for the change in deferred revenue from the beginning to the end of the period less any deferred revenue balances acquired from business combination(s) during the period and other discounts. 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.
