"A mixed global economy weighed heavily on our first quarter results," said Carl Bass, Autodesk president and CEO. "There were positive areas in the quarter but overall, a weak April led to a disappointing finish to the quarter. While the global macroeconomic conditions are uneven, we remain focused on revenue growth by delivering the best design solutions to our customers."

Revenue in the Americas decreased 3 percent to $202 million compared to the first quarter last year as reported.

"We achieved strong deferred revenue and subscription billings growth, and record cash flow from operations in the first quarter," said Mark Hawkins, Autodesk executive vice president and CFO. "Our performance in the first quarter and a global economy that continues to be uneven, have led us to reconsider our fiscal year 2014 outlook. While our near-term targets are lower, we remain committed to driving long-term revenue growth and operating margin expansion as we balance our ongoing cost controls with key investments in our business."

Business Outlook

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 second 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.


Second Quarter Fiscal 2014

2Q FY14 Guidance Metrics     

Q2 FY14 (ending
July 31, 2013)

Revenue (in millions)$550 - $570
EPS GAAP$0.21 - $0.26
EPS Non-GAAP$0.39 - $0.44

Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share exclude $0.11 related to stock-based compensation expense, $0.06 for the amortization of acquisition related intangibles, and $0.01 for restructuring, net of tax.

Full Year Fiscal 2014

Net revenue for fiscal 2014 is now expected to increase by approximately 3 percent compared to fiscal 2013. Autodesk now anticipates fiscal 2014 GAAP operating margin to increase approximately 360 to 410 basis points and non-GAAP operating margin to increase approximately 50 to 100 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 second quarter fiscal 2014 and full year fiscal 2014 outlooks assume annual effective tax rates of approximately 24 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.

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.
