Results Commentary

James Heppelmann, president and chief executive officer, commented, “PTC had a strong Q3, with organic revenue of $285.8 million exceeding the high-end of our guidance and non-GAAP EPS of $0.32 at the high-end of our guidance range. Our organic license revenue of $79.4 million was up 18% on a year-over-year basis, an increase from the 15% growth we experienced in Q2 ‘11. The momentum in our Desktop business continued with 41% year-over-year organic license growth. This was our 6th consecutive quarter of year-over-year improvement in Desktop license revenue and in our Channel business. We were pleased to see the strength of our Enterprise business increase, with organic license revenue up 40% sequentially and note that our year-over-year organic Enterprise license revenue growth reflects the very strong quarter we had in Q3’10. We also continue to see robust adoption of our PLM solutions, as is reflected in our 22% and 21% year-over-year increases in organic maintenance and services revenue, respectively. Importantly, we continue to experience the dilutive impact of strong Desktop revenue on our Enterprise sales capacity, and as we highlighted at our recent investor event in June, will begin to ramp sales capacity in response to the broadening demand for PTC’s products. Overall, we delivered 20% total revenue growth compared to the year ago period.” On a constant currency basis, total revenue growth and license revenue growth were both 13% compared to Q3’10.

“Our momentum in the PLM market continued with the addition of 2 new strategically important ‘domino’ accounts during Q3,” Heppelmann continued. “Since 2009, we have won 27 domino accounts and we continue to expect to win a cumulative total of 30 domino accounts by the end of FY’11. Dominoes represent the largest of many competitive displacement opportunities, and we believe they demonstrate that PTC is gaining share and becoming recognized as the industry leader for both our technology and product development process expertise.”

Heppelmann added, “We had 27 large deals (license + services revenue of more than $1 million) in Q3’11, compared to 24 last quarter and 14 in Q3’10. We believe this is an indicator of the strength of our pipeline for business opportunities with new and existing customers. During the quarter we recognized revenue from leading organizations such as BAE Systems, ESPRIT Europe GMBH, Force Protection, Jabil, Poclain Hydraulics, Robert Bosch, Sears, the US Department of Energy and Weatherford International.”

Jeff Glidden, chief financial officer, commented, “From a profitability standpoint we had a very strong quarter; we delivered $0.32 of non-GAAP EPS, up 52% from $0.21 non-GAAP EPS in Q3 ‘10. We delivered $48 million in cash flow from operations during the quarter, and we ended Q3 with $261 million of cash, including $16 million from MKS, flat with the end of Q2. As expected, we resumed our stock buyback program with a total of $40 million in stock repurchased during the quarter.”
