PTC Announces Q1 Results, Initiates Q2 Guidance and Updates FY'10 Targets

Targets 30% license revenue growth in FY'10 on strength of Windchill PLM solution

NEEDHAM, Mass., Jan 26, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC), The Product Development Company®, today reported results for its first fiscal quarter ended January 2, 2010.

Highlights

The Q1 non-GAAP results exclude $13.9 million of stock-based compensation expense, $9.0 million of acquisition- related intangible asset amortization and $7.4 million of income tax adjustments. The Q1 results include a non-GAAP tax rate of 25% and a GAAP tax rate of 18%.

Results Commentary

C. Richard Harrison, chairman and chief executive officer, commented, "We begin fiscal 2010 with strong performance in Q1: total revenue was up 8% year-over-year with license revenue up 48%. Our better than expected performance was driven by large enterprise PLM contracts in North America." On a constant currency basis total Q1 revenue was up 3% and license revenue was up 43%.

"Our PLM license revenue was $45 million, up 143% year-over-year, highlighting our leadership position in a large and growing segment of the enterprise software market," continued Harrison. "Our pipeline for new business opportunities with new and existing customers remains strong. During the quarter we recognized revenue from leading organizations such as Airbus, BAE Systems, Bucyrus International, Cummins Inc., DRS Technologies, The Danfoss Group, IKEA, Raytheon, Quanta Computer Inc., the United States Army and the United States Navy."

James Heppelmann, president and chief operating officer added, "Our ongoing investment in technology leadership is clearly paying off and our market momentum is becoming increasingly clear: our total PLM revenue is approaching a $500 million per year revenue run rate, we are engaged in more than 200 active competitive displacement opportunities on a world-wide basis, and we secured 4 additional strategically important "domino" account wins during the quarter."

"Our product portfolio has never been more compelling and we are continuing to invest to extend our technology leadership position," continued Heppelmann. "We have significant new releases of Windchill, Pro/ENGINEER, Arbortext, CoCreate and Mathcad coming out in FY'11, and we are progressing on our new embedded software and program portfolio management initiatives. We also continue to add to our product analytics platform; we recently acquired leading technology in the fast-growing carbon information management market, enhancing our "green product development" capabilities. Our product analytics platform enables customers to perform business intelligence-like analytics on their in-process product designs."

Heppelmann concluded, "We are very optimistic about the long-term opportunity for PTC and will continue to make strategic investments that we believe are critical to delivering value to our customers and gaining market share. We expect these investments to enable us to achieve our goal of 20% non-GAAP EPS CAGR over the next 5 years."

Neil Moses, chief financial officer, commented, "Our strong license revenue was, as expected, partly offset by a slight year-over-year decline in our maintenance and services revenue as we continue to work through the impact of soft license sales in 2009. Our CAD and SMB-related businesses were down modestly on a year-over-year basis, as expected, given the maturity of the CAD market and the ongoing impact of the global economy on the SMB space. Importantly, however, we are beginning to see signs of improvement in the SMB market and in the European and Asian markets as well. Our balance sheet remains solid with $231 million of cash."

Outlook Commentary

"Looking forward to the remainder of FY'10, we are increasing our full-year revenue target to $1,015 million and non-GAAP EPS target to $1.00," continued Moses. "We are now expecting 30% year over year license revenue growth, with our maintenance and services business flat to modestly up on a year over year basis. We are increasing our non-GAAP operating margin target to 16%, but also intend to continue to invest in our business to leverage our technology leadership position and capitalize on our long-term growth opportunity. We expect to pay down the remaining $57 million on our revolving credit facility and repurchase $60 million worth of shares during FY'10." For FY'10 the GAAP operating margin target is 7.5% and the GAAP EPS target is $0.50.

The FY'10 targets assume a non-GAAP tax rate of 25%, a GAAP tax rate of 17% and 120 million diluted shares outstanding. The FY'10 non-GAAP guidance excludes approximately $49 million of stock-based compensation expense, $35 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization and the related income tax effects.

"For Q2 we are initiating guidance of $235 to $245 million in revenue with non-GAAP EPS of $0.14 to $0.20, Moses added. "We are again expecting approximately 50% year-over-year growth in our license revenue in Q2. We expect our maintenance and services lines of business to be down slightly in Q2, but we expect to see growth in these businesses in the second half of FY'10."

The Q2 guidance assumes a non-GAAP tax rate of 28%, a GAAP tax rate of 25% and 120 million diluted shares outstanding. The Q2 non-GAAP guidance excludes approximately $12 million of stock-based compensation expense, $9 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization expense and the related income tax effects.

Important Information About Non-GAAP References

PTC provides non-GAAP supplemental information to its financial results. Non-GAAP operating expenses, margin and EPS exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquired in-process research and development expense, restructuring charges, and the related tax effects of the preceding items and any one-time tax items. PTC provides this non-GAAP information to facilitate period-to-period comparisons of its operational performance by adjusting for certain non-cash and certain episodic expenses. We believe that providing non-GAAP measures affords investors a view of our operating results that may be more easily compared to peer companies. PTC management also uses this and other non-GAAP financial information to evaluate, manage and plan our business because the information provides additional insight into ongoing financial performance. 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 use, non-GAAP measures in conjunction with our GAAP results. We calculate revenue and expenses on a constant currency basis to obtain a view of the performance of our business without the effect of differences in foreign currency exchange rates used for translation. We calculate these measures by applying the applicable prior period exchange rates to current period revenues and expenses.

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this press release that are not historic facts, including statements about our fiscal 2010 and other future financial expectations, anticipated tax rates, the expected impact of our planned strategic investments on our future success, and the long-term prospects for PTC 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 resume purchases of our solutions when or at the rates we expect, the possibility that our customers may not renew maintenance or enter into services engagements at historic rates and that our maintenance and services businesses may not recover when we expect, the possibility that strategic customer wins may not generate the revenue we expect, the possibility that our strategic investments may not have the effects we expect, the possibility that we will experience a shortfall in revenue that causes us to decrease or eliminate planned strategic investments in our business or planned share repurchases and debt repayments, the possibility that our efforts to contain our operating expenses may not have the effects we expect and could harm our operations, the possibility that we may be unable to attain or maintain a technology leadership position or that any such leadership position may not generate the revenue we expect, and the possibility that planned product releases may be delayed.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 (including restructuring charges) 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.
