"We are very pleased with the progress we made in the business this
quarter," said Carl Bass, Autodesk president and CEO. "Customer demand was
robust and our operational execution, including expense management, was
strong. Our products provide innovation and productivity that translate into
real competitive advantage which our customers need in every economic
Stock Option Review
During the quarter, the company began a voluntary review of the company's
historical stock option granting practices and the related accounting. This
voluntary review was initiated in light of news about the option practices of
numerous companies across several industries. The Audit Committee of
Autodesk's Board of Directors, comprised of three independent board members,
is leading this effort and has engaged independent outside legal counsel to
conduct the review. Because this review is ongoing, at this time, the company
has not yet determined if it needs to record any non-cash adjustments to
compensation expense related to prior stock option grants. The company is
following evolving best practice in the industry, and will provide only select
financial information while it completes the review.
"The Audit Committee is working to complete this review as quickly and
thoroughly as possible," said Bass. "Early analysis of the review suggests
that we will be reaching conclusions, reporting results, and moving forward.
We have a solid management team committed to Autodesk whose attention remains
firmly rooted on driving execution within the business."
Autodesk's performance was driven by strong increases in revenue from new
seats, subscriptions and emerging economies as well as increasing penetration
of its 3D products. In addition, the Media and Entertainment segment showed
substantial improvement compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2007.
Revenue from new seats increased by 24 percent compared to the second
quarter of last year. Revenue from new seats of 3D model-based design
products increased 41 percent over last year, on particularly strong sales of
the Revit family of products. Revenue from new seats of AutoCAD and AutoCAD
LT increased by 23 percent compared to the second quarter of last year.
Revenue from new seats and emerging businesses continues to represent
approximately two-thirds of total revenues.
Subscription revenue increased 65 percent compared to the second quarter
of last year to $104 million or 23 percent of revenue. Strong subscription
attach rates and renewal rates drove a $12 million sequential increase in
deferred subscription revenue. Upgrade revenues declined as expected.
Combined subscription and upgrade revenues increased 14 percent compared to
the second quarter of last year and continue to represent approximately one-
third of total revenues.
The company's 3D products, Inventor, Revit and Civil 3D continue to
increase their market penetration. Combined revenues from the company's 3D
model-based design products increased approximately 37 percent over the second
quarter of last year to $91 million or 20 percent of total revenue. In total,
more than 32,000 commercial seats of 3D were shipped in the quarter. The
Revit family of products led 3D growth again this quarter. Revit revenue
increased 96 percent compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2006. Autodesk
shipped more than 15,000 commercial seats of Revit in the quarter.
Once again, emerging economies contributed robust revenue growth. Revenue
from the emerging economies in Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe, Latin America and
the Middle East increased 32 percent over last year and represented 13 percent
of total revenue in the second quarter.
Revenue from the Media and Entertainment segment increased 30 percent over
the second quarter of fiscal 2006. Advanced Systems revenues were
approximately flat over the second quarter of fiscal 2006 and increased by 40
percent sequentially on strong adoption of the new Linux-based offerings.
Animation revenues increased by nearly 100 percent over the second quarter of
last year and by 12 percent sequentially. As planned, the remaining Alias
integration activities were substantially completed during the quarter, and
new versions of both 3ds Max and Maya were announced during the quarter.
The following statements are forward-looking statements which are based on
current expectations and which involve risks and uncertainties some of which
are set forth below. As a result of the ongoing review of stock option grant
practices, the company is not providing EPS guidance at this time. The
company did indicate that spending levels for the year have not changed.
However, the company believes that spending in the third quarter will increase
by approximately $10 million sequentially, in part as a result of the $5
million of spend for growth initiatives which was planned for the second
quarter of fiscal 2007 but did not occur.
Third Quarter Fiscal 2007
Net revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2007 are expected to be
between $450 million and $460 million.
Full Year Fiscal 2007
For fiscal year 2007, net revenues are expected to be between $1.82
billion and $1.85 billion.

statements regarding the timing of spending related to growth investment
initiatives, statements regarding anticipated market trends and other
