"Our strong first quarter results reflect the continued improvement in the demand environment for our products and robust revenue growth in our international geographies,” said Carl Bass, Autodesk president and CEO. “Over the past several quarters we have been positioning the company to participate in the eventual global recovery. Our results reflect the work we’ve done to drive revenue, control costs and improve our profitability. We continue to be optimistic about delivering margin expansion this year, tempered with appropriate concern regarding the uncertainty of the European economy.”

Autodesk experienced strong year-over-year growth in several key areas including maintenance billings, revenue from commercial new licenses, and cash flow from operations. Growth in total revenue, coupled with a continued focus on cost containment and improving operational efficiencies led to significant year-over-year improvement to Autodesk’s operating margin, cash flow from operations, and profitability.

First quarter results included a one-time benefit of approximately $15 million in upgrade revenue related to a promotion that was run in advance of an increase in upgrade pricing.
