    Including non-recurring charges and the amortization of intangible assets, the net loss for the first quarter was $2.9 million or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to net income of $12.3 million or $0.05 per diluted share, for the same period last year. During the quarter, the Company recorded non- recurring charges of $6.1 million related to recent actions to reduce its cost structure.

    "Earnings were in line with our target for the quarter despite weaker revenue, which was below our expectations," said C. Richard Harrison, president and chief executive officer. "These earnings reflect the benefits of our previously announced cost reductions as well as strong expense management. Revenue continues to be affected by adverse macroeconomic conditions, particularly in North America and Japan. Our first quarter is our seasonally weakest selling period and revenue should improve sequentially during the fiscal year."

    Operating Highlights

    Total Windchill® revenue in the first quarter was $48.6 million, compared to $50.4 million a year ago. PTC received first quarter orders for Windchill from customers such as Marconi Communications, Lockheed Martin, NASA, Schneider Electric and Toshiba.

    During the quarter, PTC expanded its suite of collaboration solutions with the launch of its third solution, PTC® DynamicDesignLink(TM), to enable manufacturers and their customers to interactively customize and define "designed-to-order" products. The Web-based solution provides significant value to manufacturers developing products that are engineered to a buyer's specific performance requirements or have initiatives around mass customization, product line rationalization, or design modularization. The fourth solution focused on product lifecycle management is expected to launch in the second quarter of fiscal 2002.

    Additionally, the Company continued to add systems integrators, including Samsung SDS and Siemens Business Services, to deepen its enterprise consulting partner program in important geographies. These integrators complement our existing network of premier global integrators. The Company now has active relationships with 53 systems integrator partners and has over 550 premier partner consultants technically trained.

    The Company's total design solutions revenue for the first quarter was $150.0 million, compared to $184.5 million a year ago. Design solutions sales included orders from ABB, Kwang Yang Motor, The Stanley Works, Toyota Racing Development and Weatherford.

    "We have been working hard to capitalize on the importance of product development," continued Harrison. "This is evidenced by partnerships with market-leading software vendors like Siebel, announced yesterday, and the expansion of our network of systems integrators, value-added resellers, and hardware vendors like HP and Sun. We also launched in the first quarter our advertising campaign focused on the significance of product development as a core business initiative. We have better-positioned ourselves to endure the economic downturn and thrive in a recovery through the expansion of our product suite, the tighter integration of our software products, the deepening of our partner relationships, leveraging our base of over 33,000 customers, and our lower cost structure."
