Autodesk Reports Second Quarter Financial Results
Strong Billings and Deferred Revenue Growth
Strong billings and deferred revenue growth led the quarter and we continue to see customers adopt our new model subscription offerings, which are showing strong year-over-year and sequential growth. For the past two years we've been preparing for this transition and we're now ready to accelerate the process.

Public Company Information:

NASDAQ:ADSK

"We are pleased with the progress of our business model transition," said Carl Bass, Autodesk president and CEO. "Strong billings and deferred revenue growth led the quarter and we continue to see customers adopt our new model subscription offerings, which are showing strong year-over-year and sequential growth. For the past two years we've been preparing for this transition and we're now ready to accelerate the process."

Second Quarter Operational Overview

As a reminder, Autodesk is undergoing a business model transition in which the company will discontinue selling new perpetual licenses in favor of subscriptions and flexible license arrangements. During the transition, billings, revenue, gross margin, operating margin, EPS, deferred revenue, and cash flow from operations will be impacted as more revenue is recognized ratably rather than up front and as new offerings bring a wider variety of price points.

Revenue in the Americas increased 6 percent compared to the second quarter last year to $236 million. EMEA revenue was $226 million, a decrease of 7 percent compared to the second quarter last year as reported, and flat on a constant currency basis. Revenue in APAC was $148 million, a decrease of 13 percent compared to the second quarter last year as reported, and 9 percent on a constant currency basis. Revenue from emerging economies was $92 million, a decrease of 7 percent compared to the second quarter last year as reported, and 5 percent on a constant currency basis. Revenue from emerging economies represented 15 percent of total revenue in the second quarter.

Revenue from the Architecture, Engineering and Construction business segment was $233 million, an increase of 7 percent compared to the second quarter last year. Revenue from the Platform Solutions and Emerging Business segment was $164 million, a decrease of 21 percent compared to the second quarter last year. Revenue from the Manufacturing business segment was $171 million, an increase of 2 percent compared to the second quarter last year. Revenue from the Media and Entertainment business segment was $41 million, a decrease of 6 percent compared to the second quarter last year.

Revenue from Flagship products was $272 million, a decrease of 11 percent compared to the second quarter last year. Revenue from Suites was $226 million, a decrease of 3 percent compared to the second quarter last year. Revenue from New and Adjacent products was $112 million, an increase of 13 percent compared to the second quarter last year.

In the second quarter, Autodesk recorded a non-cash GAAP tax charge of $214 million to establish a valuation allowance on certain U.S. deferred tax assets. Due to Autodesk's pre-tax U.S. GAAP cumulative loss over the last three years, the company evaluated its deferred tax assets and determined that a valuation allowance was required. This is a GAAP-only charge and has no impact to cash this year or in the future. Autodesk will continue to monitor the application of this accounting rule and will consider reversing the valuation allowance when conditions warrant.

"Looking at the second half of this fiscal year we are maintaining our billings and subscriptions outlook but we're now expecting a greater portion of our sales to shift from perpetual licenses to new subscription types," said Scott Herren, Autodesk Chief Financial Officer. "Since the revenue from these new subscription types is deferred and recognized ratably we have revised our revenue, operating margin and EPS outlook for the year. Looking beyond this year, we are currently refining our plans around the pace and timeframe for the business model transition and look forward to providing more detail at our Investor Day event scheduled for September 29th."

Business Outlook

The following are forward-looking statements based on current expectations and assumptions, and involve risks and uncertainties some of which are set forth below under "Safe Harbor." Autodesk's business outlook for the third quarter and full year fiscal 2016 assumes, among other things, a continuation of the current economic environment and foreign exchange currency rate environment. A reconciliation between the GAAP and non-GAAP estimates for fiscal 2016 is provided below or in the tables following this press release.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2016

Q3 FY16 Guidance Metrics       Q3 FY16 (ending October 31, 2015)
Revenue (in millions)       $580 - $600
EPS GAAP       ($0.23) - ($0.18)
EPS Non-GAAP (1)       $0.05 - $0.10

_______________

(1) Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share exclude $0.21 related to stock-based compensation expense and $0.07 for the amortization of acquisition related intangibles, net of tax.

Full Year Fiscal 2016

FY16 Guidance Metrics       FY16 (ending January 31, 2016)
Billings growth (1)       2% - 4%
Revenue (in millions) (2)       $2,465 - $2,505
GAAP operating margin      

(2)% - (1)%

Non-GAAP operating margin      

9% - 10%

EPS GAAP (3)       ($1.39) - ($1.27)
EPS Non-GAAP (4)       $0.60 - $0.72
Net subscription additions       375,000 - 425,000

_______________

(1) On a constant currency basis, billings growth would be 9% - 11%.

(2) On a constant currency basis, revenue growth would be 3% - 5%.

(3) GAAP net loss per diluted share includes $0.94 related to the non-cash GAAP tax charge of $214 million to reduce U.S. deferred tax assets. The charge reflects the business model transition and resulting reduction in our pre-tax U.S. GAAP profitability.

(4) Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share exclude $0.94 related to the non-cash GAAP tax charge to reduce U.S. deferred tax assets, $0.75 related to stock-based compensation expense, and $0.31 for the amortization of acquisition related intangibles, offset by $0.01 for gains on strategic investment, net of tax.

The third quarter and full year fiscal 2016 outlook assume a projected annual effective tax rate of 24 percent and 26 percent for GAAP and non-GAAP results, respectively.

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 the impacts of our business model transition, expectations regarding the transition of product offerings to subscription, 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: 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; difficulty in predicting revenue from new businesses and the potential impact on our financial results from changes in our business models; general market, political, economic and business conditions; the impact of non-cash charges on our financial results; fluctuation in foreign currency exchange rates; the success of our foreign currency hedging program; failure to 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; 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; 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.

Further information on potential factors that could affect the financial results of Autodesk are included in Autodesk's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 31, 2015 and Form 10-Q for the quarter ended April 30, 2015, which are on file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

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, non-GAAP diluted shares used in per share calculation 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.
                 
The following table shows Autodesk's non-GAAP results reconciled to GAAP results included in this release.

(a) Totals may not agree with the sum of the components due to rounding.
(b) Net Income (loss) per share were computed independently for each of the periods presented; therefore the sum of the net income (loss) 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 and paid 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 net 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.
