The Q3 non-GAAP EPS results include a tax rate of 21% and 121 million diluted shares outstanding.

Results Commentary

James Heppelmann, president and chief executive officer, commented, "PTC delivered solid operating results, with non-GAAP EPS at the high end of our guidance range, despite Q3 non-GAAP revenue at the low end of our guidance range in a continuing difficult macroeconomic environment. Our license revenue of $80 million was down 5% year over year (down 1% on a constant currency basis). Servigistics had another solid quarter and performed in line with our expectations. From a geographic perspective, we had a strong quarter in the Americas and Japan, which was positively impacted by a large transaction, partially offset by unfavorable Fx movements, and soft results in Europe and the Pac Rim reflecting the challenging macro environment in Europe and China."

Heppelmann added, "While we are tempering our near-term revenue outlook, we saw a strengthening in our pipeline, which we view as a positive sign for the longer-term as this pipeline matures over the coming quarters. We remain encouraged by the interest in our SLM solutions in the market, however, the macro environment continues to weigh on our overall business. Additionally, large deals continue to be difficult to close in this environment. We had 33 large deals (recognized license + services revenue of more than $1 million) in Q3'13. Consistent with recent quarters, the mix of large deal revenue was skewed more heavily toward Services reflecting a lower level of large license transactions. During the quarter we recognized revenue from leading organizations such as Dell, Elliott Group, Embraer, Fujitsu Ten Limited, Raytheon, Renault, Steelcase, Taiwan Greenpoint, Unisys, the United States Navy, and Vita-Mix."

Jeff Glidden, chief financial officer, commented, "From a profitability standpoint we had another solid quarter; we delivered $0.45 non-GAAP EPS and achieved a 22.2% non-GAAP operating margin, exceeding our guidance range by 70 basis points. We ended Q3 with $257 million of cash, up from $241 million at the end of Q2'13, reflecting in part $40 million used to repay our revolving credit facility, $20 million for stock repurchases and $85 million in operating cash flow." Q3 GAAP EPS was $0.29 and GAAP operating margin was 13.7%.

Outlook Commentary

Glidden added, "For Q4'13, we are providing guidance of $330 to $340 million in non-GAAP revenue with $95 to $105 million in license revenue, approximately $70 million in services revenue and approximately $165 million in non-GAAP support revenue. We are expecting Q4 non-GAAP EPS of $0.50 to $0.55." The GAAP revenue target is $330 to $340 million, the target GAAP support revenue is $165 million, and the GAAP EPS target range is $0.32 to $0.37.

The Q4 guidance assumes $1.30 USD / EURO, 100 YEN / USD, a non-GAAP tax rate of 23%, a GAAP tax rate of 27% and 121 million diluted shares outstanding. The Q4 non-GAAP guidance excludes $0.3 million of the effect of purchase accounting on deferred maintenance revenue from Servigistics, $13 million of stock-based compensation expense, $11 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization expense, $1 million of restructuring charges, their related income tax effects, as well as any discrete tax items.

Glidden continued, "Looking to the full year FY'13, we are targeting non-GAAP revenue of $1,280 to $1,290 million, a reduction to our previous revenue guidance. While we are increasing our support revenue target for the FY by approximately $5 million, we are reducing our license revenue target by approximately $15 million given the challenging macroeconomic environment, and we are reducing our services revenue target by approximately $15 million primarily due to the license revenue performance and outlook. We are also narrowing our non-GAAP EPS guidance to $1.72 to $1.77 reflecting our vigilance on cost controls and commitment to profitability despite a softer revenue expectation. We are targeting license revenue of $335 to $345 million, services revenue of approximately $292 million and non-GAAP support revenue of approximately $655 million. We continue to target approximately 200 basis points of non-GAAP operating margin improvement during FY'13." We are targeting GAAP revenue of $1,277 to $1,287 million (including GAAP support revenue of $652 million) and GAAP EPS of $1.04 to $1.09.

The FY'13 targets assume a non-GAAP tax rate of 21%, a GAAP tax rate of 5% and 121 million diluted shares outstanding. The FY'13 non-GAAP targets exclude approximately $35 million in restructuring charges, $3 million of the effect of purchase accounting on acquired Servigistics deferred revenue, $48 million of stock-based compensation expense, $45 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization, $8 million of acquisition-related expenses, and a $5 million legal settlement gain, their related income tax effects, as well as any discrete tax items.

Important Information About Non-GAAP References

PTC provides non-GAAP supplemental information to its financial results. Constant currency measures are calculated by multiplying results by the exchange rates in effect for the comparable periods in the prior year and assumes no change in tax rates. Non-GAAP revenue, operating expenses, margin and EPS exclude the effect of purchase accounting on the fair value of acquired deferred revenue of MKS Inc. and Servigistics, Inc., stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, restructuring charges, acquisition-related expenses, certain foreign currency transaction losses, certain litigation gains, and the related tax effects of the preceding items and any discrete tax items. We use these non-GAAP measures, and we believe that they assist our investors, to make period-to-period comparisons of our operational performance because they provide a view of our operating results without items that are not, in our view, indicative of our core operating results. We believe that these non-GAAP measures help illustrate underlying trends in our business, and we use the measures to establish budgets and operational goals, communicated internally and externally, for managing our business and evaluating our performance. We believe that providing non-GAAP measures affords investors a view of our operating results that may be more easily compared to the results of peer companies. In addition, compensation of our executives is based in part on the performance of our business based on these non-GAAP measures. However, non-GAAP information should not be construed as an alternative to GAAP information as the items excluded from the non-GAAP measures often have a material impact on PTC's financial results. Management uses, and investors should consider, non-GAAP measures in conjunction with our GAAP results.

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this press release that are not historic facts, including statements about our fourth quarter and fiscal 2013 and other future financial and growth expectations and anticipated tax rates, are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. These risks include the possibility that the macroeconomic climate may not improve or may deteriorate, the possibility that customers may not purchase our solutions when or at the rates we expect and that our pipeline deals may not convert as we expect, the possibility the foreign currency exchange rates may vary from our expectations and thereby affect our reported revenue and expense, the possibility that we may not achieve the license, services or support revenue that we expect, which could result in a different mix of revenue between license, service and support and could impact our EPS results, the possibility that our expanded SLM solutions, including Servigistics, may not generate the revenue we expect, the possibility that our restructurings and cost containment measures may not generate the operating margin improvements we expect and could adversely affect our revenue, the possibility that we will be unable to achieve planned services margins and operating margin improvements, the possibility that we may be unable to achieve our profitability targets with lower license revenue or without additional restructuring or cost containment measures, the possibility that remedial actions relating to our previously announced investigation in China could have a material impact on our operations in China and that fines and penalties may be assessed against us in connection with this matter. In addition, our assumptions concerning our future GAAP and non-GAAP effective income tax rates are based on estimates and other factors that could change, including the geographic mix of our revenue, expenses and profits and loans and cash repatriations from foreign subsidiaries. Other risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected are detailed from time to time in reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K and our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.
