PTC Announces Solid Q4 EPS Results, Initiates Q1 and FY'13 Targets

NEEDHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC) today reported results for its fourth fiscal quarter and year ended September 30, 2012.

Highlights

The Q4 non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP EPS results exclude $11.9 million of stock-based compensation expense, $8.7 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization, $1.3 million of acquisition-related expense and $122.3 million of income tax adjustments reflecting in large part a charge to the income tax provision to establish a valuation allowance against deferred tax assets in the U.S. The Q4 non-GAAP EPS results include a tax rate of 23% and 121 million diluted shares outstanding. The Q4 GAAP EPS results include a tax rate of 250% and 119 million shares outstanding.

Results Commentary

James Heppelmann, president and chief executive officer, commented, "Customer demand for our solutions increased in the fourth quarter in the Americas and Pacific Rim, but results in Europe and Japan were impacted by more cautious buying behavior from customers in those regions. Our license revenue of $100.7 million was down 6% year over year on a constant currency basis, at the lower end of our guidance range, reflecting pressure on larger license transactions due to soft economic conditions in the global manufacturing industry. Despite the weak macroeconomic environment, PTC continued to drive margin expansion and earnings growth with Q4 non-GAAP EPS at the high end of our guidance range."

Heppelmann added, "Our PLM market momentum was evident in Q4 as we delivered record quarterly revenue in the Americas as customers continued to deepen their relationships with PTC. Market adoption of our Creo® next-generation CAD solutions is benefiting from our 2.0 release delivered this past spring and we anticipate continued momentum in FY'13. The pipeline for SLM again expanded in Q4 and with the addition of complementary SLM solutions from Servigistics, we are excited about our unique positioning in the growing after-market service market."

"We had 35 large deals (recognized license + services revenue of more than $1 million) in Q4'12, driven primarily by activity in the Americas, where the number of large deals increased 90% year over year. For FY'12 large deal activity was approximately flat year-over-year, however the mix of large deal revenue was skewed more heavily toward Services, reflecting strong Enterprise implementation activity and a lower level of large license transactions. During the quarter we recognized revenue from leading organizations such as CooperStandard, L.L. Bean, Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne, Knorr Bremse, KHS, Stryker, and the United States Army."

Jeff Glidden, chief financial officer, commented, "From a profitability standpoint we had another solid quarter; we delivered $0.50 non-GAAP EPS and achieved a 24.5% non-GAAP operating margin. For the full year, our non-GAAP EPS increased 20% year over year to $1.51 and we achieved a non-GAAP operating margin of 19.6%, up 190 basis points year over year. We ended Q4 with $490 million of cash, up from $238 million at the end of Q3, reflecting in part $230 million in proceeds drawn from our credit facility to finance the Servigistics acquisition (which was paid when the acquisition closed on October 2, 2012) and $20 million in operating cash flow. For FY'12 we had a solid year from a cash flow perspective, generating $217 million or $1.80 per share in operating cash flow." In Q4, GAAP EPS was a loss of $0.71 reflecting a $124 million non-cash charge to the income tax provision to establish a valuation allowance against deferred U.S. tax assets. Q4 GAAP operating margin was 17.7%.

"Given our mix of revenue and expenses, historical profitability by region, and revenue and profitability outlook for FY'13, we are establishing a valuation allowance against our deferred tax assets in the U.S. This resulted in a non-cash $124 million GAAP charge in Q4," Glidden concluded.

Outlook Commentary

"We continue to be excited about our long-term growth opportunity based on the strength of our pipeline, our increased sales capacity, market acceptance of our products in core markets, as well as the significant interest we are seeing in our broader solution areas. Given the slowdown in the global manufacturing industry and uncertainty about the near-term economy, we believe it is prudent to provide a guidance range that reflects moderated revenue growth for FY'13," said Heppelmann. "Importantly, we remain committed to driving operating margin expansion and achieving our goal of 25% to 27% non-GAAP operating margin in FY'15."

Glidden added, "For Q1'13, we are providing guidance of $315 to $325 million in non-GAAP revenue with $75 to $85 million in license revenue, approximately $75 million in services revenue and $165 million in non-GAAP maintenance revenue. We are expecting Q1 non-GAAP EPS of $0.30 to $0.35 and GAAP EPS of $0.36 to $0.40, which includes $16 million of charges related to our previously announced Q1'13 restructuring." The Q1 guidance assumes $1.30 USD / EURO, a non-GAAP tax rate of 23%, a GAAP tax benefit of approximately $42 million in part reflecting a one-time non-cash tax benefit associated with purchase accounting of the Servigistics acquisition and 122 million diluted shares outstanding. The Q1 non-GAAP guidance excludes $2 million of the effect of purchase accounting on maintenance revenue from Servigistics, $12 million of stock-based compensation expense, $16 million of restructuring costs, $5 million of acquisition related expenses, $11 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization expense, their related income tax effects, as well as any one time tax items.

Glidden continued, "Looking to the full year FY'13, we are targeting non-GAAP revenue of $1,360 to $1,380 million, representing 8% to 10% year-over-year growth. We are targeting license revenue of $370 to $380 million (up 6% to 9% year-over-year), services revenue of $330 to $340 million and non-GAAP maintenance revenue of approximately $660 million. Our commitment to profitability remains on track, and we believe that the cost control actions we initiated in Q1'13 help to position us to achieve our FY'13 EPS target, despite the lower view on revenue. We continue to work toward improvement in services non-GAAP net margins with a target of at least 12% for the year, and we are targeting approximately 200 basis points of non-GAAP operating margin improvement during FY'13. Our FY'13 non-GAAP EPS target is $1.70 to $1.80." We are targeting GAAP revenue of $1,356 to $1,376 million and GAAP EPS of $1.10 to $1.20.

The FY'13 targets assume a non-GAAP tax rate of 23%, a GAAP tax rate of 5% and 122 million diluted shares outstanding. The FY'13 non-GAAP targets exclude approximately $16 million in restructuring charges, $4 million for the effect of purchase accounting on acquired Servigistics deferred revenue, $50 million of stock-based compensation expense, $50 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization, $7 million of acquisition-related expenses, their related income tax effects, as well as any one time tax items.

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 acquired deferred revenue of MKS Inc. and Servigistics, Inc., stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, restructuring charges, 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 2013 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 the macroeconomic climate may not improve or may deteriorate, 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 new products, including new releases of Creo and our newly expanded SLM solutions, may not generate the revenue we expect, the possibility that resource constraints and staff reductions could adversely affect our revenue, the possibility that our strategic investments may not generate the growth or revenues we expect, the possibility that the acquisition of Servigistics may not generate the revenue 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 and that fines and penalties may be assessed against us in connection with this matter. 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 first quarter of 2012 we recorded $0.8 million of foreign currency transaction losses related to MKS legal entity mergers completed during the quarter. In the third quarter of 2011, in connection with our acquisition of MKS, we had entered into forward contracts to reduce our foreign currency exposure related to changes in the Canadian to U.S. Dollar exchange rate from the time we entered into the agreement in early April to acquire MKS (the purchase price was in Canadian Dollars) and the closing date which occurred on May 31, 2011. We realized foreign currency losses of $4.4 million recorded as other expense related to the acquisition. In the first quarter of 2011 we recorded $0.7 million of foreign currency losses related to a previously announced litigation settlement in Japan.

The third quarter of 2011 reflects a one-time non-cash GAAP charge of $1.9 million related to a legal entity reorganization.
