Autodesk Reports Strong First Quarter Results

Total Subscriptions: Total Subscriptions consists of subscriptions from our maintenance plans and subscription plan offerings that are active and paid as of the quarter end date.  For certain cloud service offerings and flexible enterprise business agreements, subscriptions represent the monthly average activity reported within the last three months of the quarter end date.  Total subscriptions do not include education offerings, consumer product offerings, select Creative Finishing product offerings, Autodesk Buzzsaw, Autodesk Constructware, and third party products.  Subscriptions acquired with the acquisition of a business are captured once the data conforms to our subscription count methodology and when added, may cause variability in the comparison of this calculation.

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, including statements in the paragraphs under "Business Outlook" above, other statements about our short-term and long-term goals, statements regarding the impacts and results of our business model transition, expectations regarding the transition of product offerings to subscription and acceptance by our customers and partners of subscriptions, expectations for subscriptions and ARR, statements about the expansion of our market opportunity; and other statements regarding our strategies, market and product positions, performance, and results. There are a significant number of factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from statements made in this press release, including: failure to achieve our revenue and profitability objectives; failure to successfully manage transitions to new business models and markets, including the introduction of additional ratable revenue streams and our continuing efforts to attract customers to our cloud-based offerings and expenses related to the transition of our business model; difficulty in predicting revenue from new businesses and the potential impact on our financial results from changes in our business models; general market, political, economic, and business conditions; any imposition of new tariffs or trade barriers; the impact of non-cash charges on our financial results; fluctuation in foreign currency exchange rates; the success of our foreign currency hedging program; failure to control our expenses; our performance in particular geographies, including emerging economies; the ability of governments around the world to meet their financial and debt obligations, and finance infrastructure projects; weak or negative growth in the industries we serve; slowing momentum in subscription billings or revenues; difficulties encountered in integrating new or acquired businesses and technologies; the inability to identify and realize the anticipated benefits of acquisitions; the financial and business condition of our reseller and distribution channels; dependence on and the timing of large transactions; failure to achieve sufficient sell-through in our channels for new or existing products; pricing pressure; unexpected fluctuations in our annual effective tax rate; the timing and degree of expected investments in growth and efficiency opportunities; changes in the timing of product releases and retirements; and any unanticipated accounting charges.

Further information on potential factors that could affect the financial results of Autodesk are included in Autodesk's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2017, which is on file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.  Autodesk disclaims any obligation to update the forward-looking statements provided to reflect events that occur or circumstances that exist after the date on which they were made.

(1) In the first quarter of fiscal 2018, in order to improve the transparency of our revenue reporting, we updated our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations to include three lines of revenue: maintenance revenue, subscription revenue, license and other revenue.  In this format, all subscription revenue is reported in the subscription line and all maintenance revenue is reported in the maintenance line.  All remaining non-recurring revenue is reported as license and other revenue. Cost of revenue was updated consistent with the changes noted in revenue and to separately state the amount of amortization from developed technology to be consistent with the presentation of the amortization of purchased intangibles within operating expenses.  This simplified the reconciliation between the income statement presentation and recurring revenue, and improved the link between our financial statements and our business model transition.
