  • Cash flow from operations was $559 million, a decrease of 3 percent compared to fiscal 2012.

"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."

Fourth Quarter Operational Overview

Revenue from emerging economies was $84 million, a decrease of 11 percent compared to the fourth quarter last year as reported and 9 percent on a constant currency basis. Revenue from emerging economies represented 14 percent of total revenue in the fourth quarter.

Deferred revenue at the end of the fourth quarter was a record high of $835 million, an increase of 16 percent compared to the fourth quarter last year.

“We achieved strong non-GAAP operating margin expansion in the fourth quarter and the fiscal year, driven by revenue growth and our ongoing focus on cost controls while continuing to make key investments in our business,” said Mark Hawkins, Autodesk executive vice president and CFO. "Our balance sheet remains exceptionally strong as maintenance billings contributed to a record deferred revenue balance. During the fourth quarter, we also raised $750 million in our debt IPO, strengthening our domestic cash balance and providing Autodesk with greater financial flexibility.”

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 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.

 

First Quarter Fiscal 2014

 
1Q FY14 Guidance Metrics  

1Q FY14 (ending
April 30, 2013)

Revenue (in millions) $570 - $590

EPS GAAP

$0.23 - $0.28
EPS Non-GAAP $0.41 - $0.46

Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share exclude $0.12 related to stock-based compensation expense, and $0.06 for the amortization of acquisition related intangibles, net of tax.

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.

Autodesk, Inc.
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 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 generally accepted accounting principles 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.

(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, 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 generally accepted accounting principles 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.

Reconciliation for Fiscal 2014:
The following is a reconciliation of anticipated fiscal 2014 GAAP and non-GAAP operating margins:

Reconciliation for Long Term Operating Margins:

Autodesk is not able to provide targets for our long term (ending with fiscal year 2015) GAAP operating margins at this time because of the difficulty of estimating certain items that are excluded from non-GAAP that affect operating margin, such as charges related to stock-based compensation expense and amortization of acquisition related intangibles, the effect of which may be significant.

TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020.
