Results Commentary & Outlook
C. Richard Harrison, chairman and chief executive officer, commented, “We exit fiscal 2009 on solid financial footing with a product portfolio that has never been in better shape. Our decision to invest in R&D through the downturn is paying off as we are seeing some very encouraging signs of market momentum, especially as it relates to our Windchill product suite.”
“Our constant currency non-GAAP FY’09 revenue was down 9% compared to last year,” continued Harrison. “While license revenue was down 34%, maintenance and services revenue were up 3% and 1%, respectively, highlighting the stability of our business model and the support of a solid customer base. We are continuing to see positive sequential data points: 1) we again delivered license revenue growth in all of our major geographies except Japan, 2) we had better license and total revenue in North America than we did in Q4’08, which was PTC’s best revenue quarter ever, 3) we won 2 additional strategically important “domino” accounts, and 4) we also had a number of other large Windchill competitive wins during Q4.”
“Our pipeline for new business opportunities remains strong and lead
times to close enterprise deals seem to be shortening,” continued
Harrison. “We received major orders from leading organizations such as
AVIC, Carrier, Deere & Company, General Atomics, Ingersoll Rand, ITT
Corporation, and Stryker.”
