PTC Says Securities Class Action Lawsuit Without Merit

NEEDHAM, Mass., Feb. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PTC today announced that a lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts naming PTC and certain of its current and former directors and officers as defendants. The complaint alleges that false statements were made concerning PTC's maintenance revenue and purports to be filed on behalf of purchasers of the Company's common stock during the period October 19, 1999 and December 31, 2002.

PTC believes that the complaint is without merit and will contest the lawsuit vigorously.

The complaint references PTC's recent financial restatements relating to the allocation of deferred maintenance revenue, as detailed in PTC's annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2002. As previously disclosed in public statements and its most recent Form 10-K, following the implementation of a new accounting system in late 2002, the Company subsequently determined that it had miscalculated the allocation of deferred maintenance revenues in prior fiscal periods. As a result, the Form 10-K included restated financial statements that reduced the Company's reported revenue by a relatively small amount for fiscal years 1999, 2000 and 2001: 0.4%, 1.6% and 0.3% respectively. For fiscal 2002, the Company had previously announced unaudited results of $753.9 million in total revenue; the revised total reported in our Form 10-K is $742.0 million, or a reduction of 1.6%.
