The following statements are forward-looking statements that are based on current expectations and assumptions, and involve risks and uncertainties some of which are set forth below. Autodesk’s business outlook for the second quarter and full year fiscal 2013 assumes a continuation of the current economic environment and foreign exchange currency rate environment.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2013

2Q FY13 Guidance Metrics         2Q FY13 (ending July 31, 2012)
Revenue (in millions) $580 to $600
EPS - GAAP $0.29 to $0.34
EPS - Non-GAAP $0.46 to $0.51

Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share exclude $0.12 related to stock-based compensation expense and $0.05 for the amortization of acquisition related intangibles, net of tax.

Full Year Fiscal 2013

Net revenue for fiscal 2013 is expected to increase by at least 10 percent compared to fiscal 2012. Autodesk anticipates fiscal 2013 GAAP operating margin to increase by approximately 120 basis points and non-GAAP operating margin to increase by approximately 200 basis points compared to fiscal 2012.

Reconciliation between the GAAP and non-GAAP operating margin outlook for fiscal 2013.

  Fiscal 2013
 
GAAP operating margin basis point improvement over prior year 120
Stock-based compensation expense 120
Amortization of acquisition related intangibles -40
Non-GAAP operating margin basis point improvement over prior year 200

Both second quarter fiscal 2013 and full year fiscal 2013 outlooks assume an annual effective tax rate of approximately 26 percent for both GAAP and non-GAAP results. This rate does not include the federal R&D tax credit benefit, which expired on December 31, 2011, or one-time discrete items. The assumed effective tax rate will be adjusted if or when there is a renewal of the tax credit.
