PTC Announces Strong Q4 Results, Initiates FY'12 Targets and Q1 Guidance

NEEDHAM, Mass., Oct 26, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC), The Product Development Company®, today reported results for its fourth fiscal quarter and year ended September 30, 2011.

Highlights

The Q4 non-GAAP revenue results exclude a $1.9 million effect of purchase accounting on the fair value of the acquired deferred maintenance balance of MKS Inc. The Q4 non-GAAP EPS results exclude $12.9 million of stock-based compensation expense, $10.2 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization, $1.1 million of acquisition-related expense and $7.7 million of income tax adjustments. The Q4 non-GAAP EPS results include a tax rate of 24% and 120 million diluted shares outstanding. The Q4 GAAP EPS results include a tax rate of 21% and 120 million diluted shares outstanding.

Results Commentary

James Heppelmann, president and chief executive officer, commented, "PTC had a very strong finish to FY'11, with record Q4 non-GAAP revenue and non-GAAP EPS both exceeding the high-end of our guidance range. Our license revenue of $111.0 million was up 25% on a year-over-year basis, driven by solid organic growth of 15% and better-than-expected performance from Integrity (MKS). In addition to continued momentum in our Desktop (MCAD) business, which experienced 17% year-over-year revenue growth, our Enterprise (PLM) business delivered very strong results with non-GAAP revenue up 39% year over year and 21% on an organic basis. We also continue to see robust adoption of our PLM solutions, as is reflected in our 20% and 30% year-over-year increases in organic maintenance and services revenue, respectively. Overall, we delivered 27% total non-GAAP revenue growth compared to the year ago period." On a constant currency basis, total non-GAAP revenue growth was 20% and license revenue growth was 18% when compared to Q4'10.

"Our momentum in the PLM market continued with the addition of 3 new strategically important 'domino' accounts during Q4," Heppelmann continued. "Since 2009, we have won 30 domino accounts, meeting the target we had set at the beginning of the year. Dominoes represent the largest of many competitive displacement opportunities, and we believe they demonstrate that PTC is gaining share and becoming recognized as the industry leader for both our technology and product development process expertise."

Heppelmann added, "We had 30 large deals (recognized license + services revenue of more than $1 million) in Q4'11, capping off a strong year in which we had 103 large deals, up from 70 in FY'10. We believe this is an indicator of the strength of our pipeline for business opportunities with new and existing customers. During the quarter we recognized revenue from leading organizations such as Asustek Computer, Caterpillar, Doosan Infracore America, SMS Siemag, Webasto and ZF Friedrichshafen."

Jeff Glidden, chief financial officer, commented, "From a profitability standpoint we had a very strong quarter; we delivered $0.47 non-GAAP EPS, this despite a $0.02 headwind due to a higher-than-expected tax rate, other expense items and currency effects. Non-GAAP EPS was up 47% from $0.32 non-GAAP EPS in Q4'10. We ended Q4 with $168 million of cash down from $261 million at the end of Q3, reflecting in part $50 million used to repay our revolving credit facility, $15 million for stock repurchases, and $15 million for the acquisition of 4CS."

Outlook Commentary

"Based on the market momentum we are seeing, the strength of our pipeline, our increasing sales capacity, major product releases in our core markets, as well as the significant interest we are seeing in our other products, such as Abortext and Integrity, we continue to be excited about our long-term growth opportunity," said Heppelmann. "While we acknowledge that there continues to be uncertainty about the strength of the global economy, we remain committed to achieving our goal of 20% non-GAAP EPS CAGR through 2014."

Glidden commented, "For Q1, we are providing guidance of $305 to $320 million in revenue, which includes approximately $20 million in revenue from the MKS and 4CS businesses, including $2 million in non-GAAP revenue. We are expecting non-GAAP EPS of $0.28 to $0.32, which at the mid-point is an increase of 36% from $0.22 non-GAAP EPS in Q1'11, reflecting our commitment to driving operating leverage in our model. From a revenue perspective, we are expecting approximately $80 to $95 million in license revenue in Q1, with combined services and non-GAAP maintenance revenue of approximately $225 million, resulting in approximately 14% to 20% year-over-year growth in total non-GAAP revenue." For Q1, the GAAP revenue target is $303 to $318 million and the GAAP EPS target is $0.14 to $0.18.

The Q1 guidance assumes a non-GAAP tax rate of 24%, a GAAP tax rate of 20% and 121 million diluted shares outstanding. The Q1 non-GAAP guidance excludes approximately $2 million for the effect of purchase accounting on acquired MKS deferred maintenance revenue, $13 million of stock-based compensation expense, $9 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization expense, any acquisition-related expenses, and their related income tax effects.

Glidden concluded, "Looking to the full year FY'12, we are targeting non-GAAP revenue growth of 14% to 15%. We expect MKS and 4CS to contribute approximately $90 to $100 million in revenue for the full year, including $3 million in non-GAAP revenue. We expect MKS and 4CS to be slightly accretive to FY'12 non-GAAP EPS. We are expecting license revenue growth of approximately 20%, services revenue growth of 14% and non-GAAP maintenance revenue growth of 11%. Our FY'12 non-GAAP EPS target of $1.48 to $1.52 reflects incremental sales expense as we continue to ramp sales capacity. We will continue to balance investments to support future growth with our commitment to 20% non-GAAP EPS growth." For FY'12, the GAAP EPS target is $0.94 to $0.98.

The FY'12 targets assume a non-GAAP tax rate of 24%, a GAAP tax rate of 20% and 121 million diluted shares outstanding. The FY'12 non-GAAP guidance excludes approximately $3 million for the effect of purchase accounting on acquired MKS deferred maintenance revenue, $51 million of stock-based compensation expense, $37 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization, any acquisition-related expenses, and their related income tax effects.

Important Information About Non-GAAP References

PTC provides non-GAAP supplemental information to its financial results. Non-GAAP revenue, operating expenses, margin and EPS exclude the effect of purchase accounting on the fair value of the acquired deferred maintenance balance of MKS Inc., stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related expenses, certain foreign currency transaction losses, and the related tax effects of the preceding items and any one-time tax items. We use these non-GAAP measures, and we believe that they assist our investors, to make period-to-period comparisons of our operational performance because they provide a view of our operating results without items that are not, in our view, indicative of our core operating results. We believe that these non-GAAP measures help illustrate underlying trends in our business, and we use the measures to establish budgets and operational goals, communicated internally and externally, for managing our business and evaluating our performance. We believe that providing non-GAAP measures affords investors a view of our operating results that may be more easily compared to the results of peer companies. In addition, compensation of our executives is based in part on the performance of our business based on these non-GAAP measures. However, non-GAAP information should not be construed as an alternative to GAAP information as the items excluded from the non-GAAP measures often have a material impact on PTC's financial results. Management uses, and investors should consider, non-GAAP measures in conjunction with our GAAP results.

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this press release that are not historic facts, including statements about our fiscal 2012 and other future financial and growth expectations and anticipated tax rates are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected.These risks include the possibility that customers may not purchase our solutions when or at the rates we expect, the possibility the foreign currency exchange rates may vary from our expectations and thereby affect our reported revenue and expense, the possibility that we may not achieve the license, services or maintenance growth rates that we expect, which could result in a different mix of revenue between license, service and maintenance and could impact our EPS results, the possibility that strategic customer wins may not generate the revenue we expect, the possibility that new product releases may not generate the revenue we expect, the possibility that resource constraints could adversely affect our revenue, the possibility that our strategic investments may not generate the growth or revenues we expect, and the possibility that remedial actions relating to our previously announced investigation in China will have a material impact on our operations in China.In addition, our assumptions concerning our future GAAP and non-GAAP effective income tax rates are based on estimates and other factors that could change, including the geographic mix of our revenue, expenses and profits and loans and cash repatriations from foreign subsidiaries. Other risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected are detailed from time to time in reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K and our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.

(3) In the third quarter of 2011, in connection with our planned acquisition of MKS, we entered into forward contracts to purchase CDN$292 million (equivalent to approximately $305 million when the contracts were entered into). We entered into these forward contracts to reduce our foreign currency exposure related to changes in the Canadian to US Dollar exchange rate from the time we entered into the agreement in early April to acquire MKS (the purchase price is in Canadian Dollars) and the closing date which occurred on May 31, 2011. We realized foreign currency losses of $4.4 million in the third quarter of 2011 recorded as other expense related to the acquisition of MKS. In the first quarter of 2011 we recorded $0.7 million of foreign currency losses related to a previously announced litigation settlement in Japan.
(4) Reflects resolution of the litigation brought against us by GE Japan, which resulted in a GAAP benefit of $9.0 million to other income in the fourth quarter of 2010 to reduce our accruals related to this litigation to the resolution amount.
(5) Reflects the tax effects of non-GAAP adjustments for the fourth quarter and full year of 2011 and 2010, which are calculated by applying the applicable tax rate by jurisdiction to the non-GAAP adjustments listed above, as well as, the effect of a business realignment initiative during the fourth quarter of 2010, primarily in Europe, to simplify our corporate structure for tax efficient cash repatriation. This realignment resulted in a one-time non-cash GAAP tax charge of $43.4 million.
