BOSTON, April 27, 2022 — (PRNewswire) — PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) today reported financial results for its second fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2022. 

"In the second quarter we continued to see our key operating and financial metrics showing strong performance.  We delivered organic constant currency ARR growth of 13% year over year to end Q2 at $1.56 billion.  In Q2, our cash from operations was $142 million, up 17% year over year, and our adjusted free cash flow was $158 million, up 22% year over year.  The strength in Q2 was broad-based across all segments and geographic regions, driven by demand for digital transformation and SaaS," said James Heppelmann, President and CEO, PTC.

"Our differentiated product portfolio and growing SaaS capabilities position PTC to drive superior value for customers.  Our market position coupled with our subscription model, which took us years of hard work to put in place, is highly resilient and positions us to continue to deliver strong double-digit ARR growth.  Based on our strong performance in the first half of the year and the momentum we have created, we are raising our fiscal 2022 guidance for ARR and free cash flow," concluded Heppelmann.

Second Quarter 2022 Highlights1

Key operating and financial highlights are set forth below.  For additional details, please refer to the Q2'22 earnings presentation and financial data tables that have been posted to the Investor Relations section of our website at  Revenue and, as a result, operating margin and earnings per share are impacted by revenue recognition under ASC 606.

  • ARR was $1,532 million at the end of Q2'22, up 11% compared to Q2'21.  On a constant currency basis, ARR was $1,564 million, up 13% compared to Q2'21, and above guidance of $1,540 million to $1,550 million.  ARR at the end of Q2'22 includes a $4 million reduction associated with discontinuing our business operations in Russia.
  • Cash flow from operations was $142 million, free cash flow was $140 million, and adjusted free cash flow was $158 million in Q2'22, compared to Q2'21 cash flow from operations of $122 million, free cash flow of $116 million, and adjusted free cash flow of $130 million.
  • Revenue was $505 million in Q2'22 compared to $462 million in Q2'21, representing growth of 9%.  On a constant currency basis, year-over-year revenue growth in Q2'22 was 13%. 
  • Operating margin was 32% in Q2'22, compared to 22% in Q2'21.  Non-GAAP operating margin in Q2'22 was 42%, compared to 37% in Q2'21.  GAAP and non-GAAP operating margin expanded year over year due to higher revenue and operational discipline.
  • Earnings per share was $0.76 in Q2'22, compared to $0.92 in Q2'21. Non-GAAP earnings per share in Q2'22 was $1.39, compared to $1.08 in Q2'21.  GAAP EPS in Q2'22 was negatively impacted by a non-cash charge within other expense due to a decline in value of a publicly traded equity investment, which was sold in Q2'22.
  • Total cash and cash equivalents as of the end of Q2'22 was $307 million. Gross debt was $1.28 billion as of the end of Q2'22.  During Q2'22, we repaid $175 million on our revolving credit facility and we had proceeds of $43 million from the sale of the aforementioned equity investment.
  • Stock repurchases were $5 million in Q2'22, reflecting the settlement of repurchases that were initiated in Q1'22

1 We include operating and non-GAAP financial measures in our operational highlights. The detailed definitions of these items and reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to comparable GAAP measures are included below and in the reconciliation tables at the end of this press release.

Fiscal 2022 and Q3'22 Guidance

"PTC delivered strong second quarter results that exceeded our expectations," said Kristian Talvitie, EVP and CFO, PTC. "Based on our Q2 performance and our forecast for the remainder of the year, we are raising our guidance for fiscal 2022 ARR, Free Cash Flow, and Revenue.  Despite significant foreign exchange headwinds and the impact of exiting our business in Russia, our strong execution and operational discipline have helped us to deliver solid financial performance thus far in fiscal 2022, and we believe we are well positioned to deliver on our updated targets for the year."
