Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2016

     
Q4 FY16 Guidance Metrics

Q4 FY16 (ending
January 31, 2016)

Revenue (in millions) $620 - $640
EPS GAAP ($0.31) - ($0.27)
EPS Non-GAAP (1) $0.08 - $0.12
 

_______________

(1) Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share exclude $0.25 related to stock-based compensation expense and $0.10 for the amortization of acquisition related intangibles, net of tax, and $0.04 related to non-cash GAAP tax charges.

Full Year Fiscal 2016

FY16 Guidance Metrics      

FY16 (ending
January 31, 2016)

Billings growth (1) 0.5% - 1.5%
Revenue (in millions) (2) $2,475 - $2,495
GAAP operating margin Approximately (1)%
Non-GAAP operating margin (3) Approximately 10%
EPS GAAP (4) ($1.59) - ($1.55)
EPS Non-GAAP (5) $0.72 to $0.76
Net subscription additions 310,000 - 330,000

_______________

(1) On a constant currency basis, billings growth would be 7% - 8%.

(2) On a constant currency basis, revenue growth would be 3% - 4%.

(3) Non-GAAP operating margin excludes 8% related to stock-based compensation expense and 3% for the amortization of acquisition related intangibles.

(4) GAAP net loss per diluted share includes $1.08 related to the non-cash GAAP tax charge primarily as a result of the $231 million valuation allowance established in Q2. The charge reflects the business model transition and resulting reduction in our pre-tax U.S. GAAP profitability.

(5) Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share excludes $1.08 related to the non-cash GAAP tax charge primarily as a result of the valuation allowance established in Q2 of this year, $0.87 related to stock-based compensation expense, and $0.37 for the amortization of acquisition related intangibles, offset by $0.01 for gains on strategic investment.

The fourth quarter and full year fiscal 2016 outlook assume a projected annual effective tax rate of (170) percent and 27 percent for GAAP and non-GAAP results, respectively.

_____________________

(1) Effective in second quarter of fiscal 2015, Autodesk elected to present amortization of purchased customer relationships, trade names, patents, and user lists as a separate line item within operating expenses. As a result, amortization previously reflected in "General and Administrative" expense was reclassified to "Amortization of Purchased Intangibles" within Operating Expenses. Prior period amounts have been revised to conform to the current period presentation.

(2) Autodesk previously established a valuation allowance against the Company’s deferred tax assets in the three months ended July 31, 2015. In the course of preparing the consolidated financial statements for the quarter ended October 31, 2015, Autodesk determined that it had understated tax expense by $33 million primarily related to the establishment of the valuation allowance. Autodesk evaluated the materiality of the error, quantitatively and qualitatively, and concluded it was not material to the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements for the three and six month periods ended July 31, 2015.

However, in light of the significance of the error to the results for the three months ended October 31, 2015, Autodesk has determined to correct the error by revising the previously reported results for the three and six months ended July 31, 2015, to include the additional $33 million of income tax expense associated with the valuation allowance.

Incorporating these non-cash, GAAP only, revisions results in a ($269.5 million) provision for income taxes, a GAAP net loss of ($268.6 million) and GAAP diluted net loss per share of $(1.18) for the three months ended July 31, 2015 and a ($272.2 million) provision for income taxes, a GAAP net loss of ($249.5 million) and GAAP diluted net loss per share of $(1.10) for the six months ended July 31, 2015. Autodesk is in the process of assessing the effect of these errors in connection with its evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of its internal control over financial reporting and disclosure controls and procedures.

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.

(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.
