Results Commentary

James Heppelmann, president and chief executive officer, commented, “PTC had a good start to FY’12, with Q1 non-GAAP revenue at the high end of our guidance range and non-GAAP EPS exceeding the high end of our guidance range. Our license revenue of $89.1 million was up 18% on a year-over-year basis, driven by organic growth of 12%. Continuing the momentum we experienced in Q4’11, our Enterprise (PLM) business delivered very good results with non-GAAP revenue up 38% year over year and 21% on an organic basis. Enterprise (PLM) license growth increased 41% year over year and 27% on an organic basis. Revenue in our Desktop (MCAD) business increased 5% year over year. Desktop license revenue decreased 1% year over year, reflecting very strong comparable results in Q1’11.” On a constant currency basis, total non-GAAP revenue growth was 19% and license revenue growth was 17% when compared to Q1’11.

Heppelmann added, “As part of our ongoing strategy to enhance customer focus, expand our addressable market opportunities and accelerate profitability we are implementing an organizational realignment around five market sectors and restructuring our business. We expect the combination of near-term cost savings from the restructuring and the longer-term benefit of the realignment to improve efficiencies within our Sales and Services organizations. As a result of progress we’ve already made on operating margins coupled with these new initiatives, we are increasing our long-term, non-GAAP operating margin target by 500 basis points to a range of 25% to 27% by FY’15. Please join us at our upcoming investor day in New York on February 7th where we will provide further insight into our growth and margin expansion initiatives.”

Jeff Glidden, chief financial officer, commented, “From a profitability standpoint, Q1 was another solid quarter with a good mix of revenue, better than anticipated Services margins, and lower than planned operating expenses as we remained vigilant on all non-sales related hiring; we delivered $0.35 non-GAAP EPS, this despite a $0.01 headwind due to a higher-than-expected tax rate and currency effects. Non-GAAP EPS increased 59% from $0.22 non-GAAP EPS in Q1’11. We ended Q1’12 with $187 million of cash up from $168 million at the end of Q4’11, reflecting $36 million in cash provided by operating activities.”
