“We had a solid start to the year as our overall business continued to deliver double-digit year-over-year revenue growth,” said Carl Bass, Autodesk president and CEO. “We were pleased with the performance of suites as customers are embracing the substantially greater functionality and value that our design and creation suites deliver. Our year-over-year revenue growth was also fueled by strength in Asia Pacific and the Americas, while economic conditions contributed to uneven results in EMEA and emerging countries. Our manufacturing and Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) businesses achieved strong year-over-year results as more and more customers turned to Autodesk to solve their most complex design and engineering challenges.”

First Quarter Operational Overview

EMEA revenue was $224 million, an increase of 4 percent compared to the first quarter last year as reported and 2 percent on a constant currency basis. Revenue in the Americas was $208 million, an increase of 14 percent compared to the first quarter last year. Revenue in Asia Pacific was a record $157 million, an increase of 19 percent compared to the first quarter last year as reported and 13 percent on a constant currency basis. Revenue from emerging economies was $82 million, an increase of 6 percent compared to the first quarter last year as reported and 6 percent on a constant currency basis. Revenue from emerging economies represented 14 percent of total revenue in the first quarter.

Revenue from the Platform Solutions and Emerging Business segment was $229 million, an increase of 9 percent compared to the first quarter last year. Revenue from the AEC business segment was $163 million, an increase of 16 percent compared to the first quarter last year. Revenue from the Manufacturing business segment was $146 million, an increase of 18 percent compared to the first quarter last year. Revenue from the Media and Entertainment business segment was $51 million, a decrease of 5 percent compared to the first quarter last year.

Revenue from Flagship products was $336 million, an increase of 4 percent compared to the first quarter last year. Revenue from Suites was $166 million, an increase of 34 percent compared to the first quarter last year. Revenue from New and Adjacent products was $87 million, an increase of 9 percent compared to the first quarter last year.

As our customers migrate from our stand-alone products to Suites, we anticipate that our revenue from Suites will increase as a percentage of total revenue and that our revenue from our Flagship products will similarly decline as a percentage of total revenue.

Deferred revenue at the end of the first quarter was a record high of $727 million, an increase of 17 percent compared to the first quarter last year and 1 percent sequentially. Shippable backlog was $6 million, a decrease of $19 million compared to the first quarter last year and $21 million sequentially. At the end of the first quarter, channel inventory weeks was at a record low of approximately one week. A decrease in channel inventory and shippable backlog was expected as a result of our transition to increased use of electronic software delivery.

“Our revenue growth and continued focus on cost controls drove strong improvement in our non-GAAP operating margin,” said Mark Hawkins, Autodesk executive vice president, chief financial officer. “Revenue growth and operating margin expansion remain key focus areas as we continue towards our long-term goal of growing revenue by a compounded annual growth rate of 12-14 percent (capturing fiscal 2011 through fiscal 2015) and expanding our non-GAAP operating margin to at least 30 percent. During the quarter we accomplished significant changes including a new channel partner framework and a move to an industry focused organizational alignment, among other things, that we believe will better position the company for future growth. These changes, combined with our outstanding products and market position, give us confidence to achieve our long-term goals.”
