"We are pleased with our stronger than expected fourth quarter results," said Carl Bass, Autodesk president and CEO. "While the global economic picture remains mixed, we ended the year strong, driven by increasing demand for our design and creation suites, record revenue in our AEC and manufacturing business segments, and strong large deal volume.
"Our ongoing cost management measures, which we consider as simply running the business wisely, contributed to the delivery of meaningful non-GAAP operating margin improvement for the year," continued Bass. "We achieved record non-GAAP EPS despite a mixed economy and lower than expected revenue growth. We also made meaningful progress on our 360 family of cloud based products, which we believe positions us and our customers for success in the future. Looking forward to fiscal 2014, we are continuing to lead the industry in innovation and drive revenue and profitability growth."

The following statements are forward-looking statements that are based on current expectations and assumptions, and involve risks and uncertainties some of which are set forth below. Autodesk's business outlook for the first quarter and full year fiscal 2014 assumes, among other things, a continuation of the current economic environment and foreign exchange currency rate environment, and interest expense related to Autodesk's $750 million debt offering in December 2012.

Full Year Fiscal 2014
Net revenue for fiscal 2014 is expected to increase by approximately 6 percent compared to fiscal 2013. Autodesk anticipates fiscal 2014 GAAP operating margin to increase approximately 455 to 480 basis points and non-GAAP operating margin to increase approximately 125 to 150 basis points compared to fiscal 2013. A reconciliation between the GAAP and non-GAAP estimates for fiscal 2014 is provided in the tables following this press release.
Both first quarter fiscal 2014 and full year fiscal 2014 outlooks assume annual effective tax rates of approximately 24.5 percent and approximately 25.5 percent for GAAP and non-GAAP results, respectively. These rates do not include one-time discrete items but do reflect the recently enacted extension of the federal R&D tax credit benefit through December 31, 2013.
