PTC ANNOUNCES SECOND FISCAL QUARTER 2022 RESULTS

04/27/2022

Strong Q2 performance; Raising FY'22 ARR, Free Cash Flow, and Revenue guidance

BOSTON, April 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) today reported financial results for its second fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2022. 

"In the second quarter we continued to see our key operating and financial metrics showing strong performance.  We delivered organic constant currency ARR growth of 13% year over year to end Q2 at $1.56 billion.  In Q2, our cash from operations was $142 million, up 17% year over year, and our adjusted free cash flow was $158 million, up 22% year over year.  The strength in Q2 was broad-based across all segments and geographic regions, driven by demand for digital transformation and SaaS," said James Heppelmann, President and CEO, PTC.

"Our differentiated product portfolio and growing SaaS capabilities position PTC to drive superior value for customers.  Our market position coupled with our subscription model, which took us years of hard work to put in place, is highly resilient and positions us to continue to deliver strong double-digit ARR growth.  Based on our strong performance in the first half of the year and the momentum we have created, we are raising our fiscal 2022 guidance for ARR and free cash flow," concluded Heppelmann.

Second Quarter 2022 Highlights 1

Key operating and financial highlights are set forth below.  For additional details, please refer to the Q2'22 earnings presentation and financial data tables that have been posted to the Investor Relations section of our website at investor.ptc.com.  Revenue and, as a result, operating margin and earnings per share are impacted by revenue recognition under ASC 606.

  • ARR was $1,532 million at the end of Q2'22, up 11% compared to Q2'21.  On a constant currency basis, ARR was $1,564 million, up 13% compared to Q2'21, and above guidance of $1,540 million to $1,550 million.  ARR at the end of Q2'22 includes a $4 million reduction associated with discontinuing our business operations in Russia.
  • Cash flow from operations was $142 million, free cash flow was $140 million, and adjusted free cash flow was $158 million in Q2'22, compared to Q2'21 cash flow from operations of $122 million, free cash flow of $116 million, and adjusted free cash flow of $130 million.
  • Revenue was $505 million in Q2'22 compared to $462 million in Q2'21, representing growth of 9%.  On a constant currency basis, year-over-year revenue growth in Q2'22 was 13%. 
  • Operating margin was 32% in Q2'22, compared to 22% in Q2'21.  Non-GAAP operating margin in Q2'22 was 42%, compared to 37% in Q2'21.  GAAP and non-GAAP operating margin expanded year over year due to higher revenue and operational discipline.
  • Earnings per share was $0.76 in Q2'22, compared to $0.92 in Q2'21. Non-GAAP earnings per share in Q2'22 was $1.39, compared to $1.08 in Q2'21.  GAAP EPS in Q2'22 was negatively impacted by a non-cash charge within other expense due to a decline in value of a publicly traded equity investment, which was sold in Q2'22.
  • Total cash and cash equivalents as of the end of Q2'22 was $307 million. Gross debt was $1.28 billion as of the end of Q2'22.  During Q2'22, we repaid $175 million on our revolving credit facility and we had proceeds of $43 million from the sale of the aforementioned equity investment.
  • Stock repurchases were $5 million in Q2'22, reflecting the settlement of repurchases that were initiated in Q1'22

1 W e include operating and non-GAAP financial measures in our operational highlights. The detailed definitions of these items and reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to comparable GAAP measures are included below and in the reconciliation tables at the end of this press release.

Fiscal 2022 and Q3'22 Guidance

"PTC delivered strong second quarter results that exceeded our expectations," said Kristian Talvitie, EVP and CFO, PTC. "Based on our Q2 performance and our forecast for the remainder of the year, we are raising our guidance for fiscal 2022 ARR, Free Cash Flow, and Revenue.  Despite significant foreign exchange headwinds and the impact of exiting our business in Russia, our strong execution and operational discipline have helped us to deliver solid financial performance thus far in fiscal 2022, and we believe we are well positioned to deliver on our updated targets for the year."

(1)

On a constant currency basis, using our FY'22 Plan foreign exchange rates (rates as of September 30, 2021) for all periods

(2)

FY'22 cash from operations and free cash flow guidance include expected restructuring payments of $45 million (current estimate is $40 million to $45 million) and transaction-related payments of approximately $5 million (already incurred in 1H'22), both of which are excluded from FY'22 adjusted free cash flow guidance;  Q3'22 cash from operations and free cash flow guidance include expected restructuring payments of approximately $10 million and transaction-related payments of approximately $5 million (already incurred in 1H'22), both of which are excluded from Q3'22 adjusted free cash flow guidance

(3)

Free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow guidance are net of expected capex of approximately $25 million (previously $30 million) in FY'22 and $5 million in Q3'22

Our FY'22 and Q3'22 financial guidance includes the assumptions below:

  • We provide ARR guidance on a constant currency basis, using our FY'22 Plan foreign exchange rates (rates as of September 30, 2021) for all periods.  Based on foreign exchange rate fluctuations as of the end of Q2'22, we currently expect a $34 million headwind (previously $13 million), relative to our constant currency ARR guidance for FY'22, and a $32 million headwind, relative to our constant currency ARR guidance for Q3'22.
  • We expect FY'22 organic churn to improve by approximately 100 basis points over FY'21.
  • Due to invoicing seasonality, the majority of our collections occur in the first half of our fiscal year.  Q4 is our lowest cash flow generation quarter.
  • Costs are expected to ramp throughout FY'22 due to hiring and increased SaaS investments.  At the mid-point of ARR guidance, we expect FY'22 GAAP operating expenses to increase approximately 3% to 4% (previously 4% to 5%) and non-GAAP operating expenses to increase approximately 2% to 3% over FY'21.
  • FY'22 GAAP results are expected to include the items outlined below, totalling $293 million to $308 million (previously $275 million to $280 million), as well as their related tax effects:
    • $160 million to $170 million of stock-based compensation expense (previously $178 million)
    • $58 million of intangible asset amortization expense
    • $35 million to $40 million of restructuring charges (previously $40 million to $45 million)
    • $35 million of FY'22 net realized losses from the sale of an equity investment (new)
    • Approximately $5 million of transaction-related charges (new)
  • Our FY'22 guidance does not reflect operating results of the Intland acquisition and the ITCI transaction, the impact of business combination accounting, incremental interest expense, or transaction-related charges not incurred as of the end of Q2'22.
  • Related to restructuring, for FY'22 we expect:
    • P&L charges of $35 million to $40 million (previously $40 million to $45 million), of which $32 million was incurred in the first half of FY'22. 
    • Cash outflows for restructuring payments of $40 million to $45 million (previously $45 to $50 million), of which $28 million was paid in the first half of FY'22.  We expect the majority of remaining payments to be made in Q3'22.  Restructuring payments in FY'22 include $5 million related to prior period actions, primarily the relocation of our headquarters in FY'19.
  • Our FY'22 GAAP tax rate is expected to be approximately 20% and our non-GAAP tax rate is expected to be approximately 19%.
  • FY'22 capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $25 million (previously $30 million).
  • For the remainder of FY'22, we plan to focus on de-levering.  In FY'23 and on a go-forward basis, assuming our Debt/EBITDA ratio is below 3x, our goal is to return approximately 50% of our free cash flow to shareholders via share repurchases.

Important Disclosures
Important Information About Our Non-GAAP Financial Measures

PTC provides supplemental non-GAAP financial measures to its financial results. We use these non-GAAP financial measures, and we believe that they assist our investors, to make period-to-period comparisons of our operating performance because they provide a view of our operating results without items that are not, in our view, indicative of our operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an alternative to GAAP results as the items excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures often have a material impact on our operating results, certain of those items are recurring, and others often recur. Management uses, and investors should consider, our non-GAAP financial measures only in conjunction with our GAAP results.

Non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS exclude the effect of the following items: stock-based compensation; amortization of acquired intangible assets; acquisition-related and other transactional charges included in general and administrative expenses; restructuring and other charges, net; certain non-operating charges and credits; and income tax adjustments. Additional information about the items we exclude from our non-GAAP financial measures and the reasons we exclude them can be found in "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" on page 24 of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021. In FY'21, we incurred tax expense related to a South Korean tax matter which is excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures as it is related to prior periods and not included in management's view of results for comparative purposes. We also recorded a tax benefit in FY'21 related to the release of our U.S. valuation allowance as a result of the Arena acquisition and our conclusion that it is now more likely than not that we will realize the majority of our deferred tax assets in the U.S. As the non-GAAP tax provision is calculated assuming that there is no valuation allowance, this benefit has been excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures.

Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Free Cash Flow – PTC provides information on free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow to enable investors to assess our ability to generate cash without incurring additional external financings and to evaluate our performance against our announced long-term goals and intent to return approximately 50% of our free cash flow to shareholders via stock repurchases. Free cash flow is cash provided by (used in) operations net of capital expenditures.  Adjusted free cash flow is free cash flow net of restructuring payments, acquisition-related payments, and non-ordinary course tax-related payments or receipts. Free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow are not measures of cash available for discretionary expenditures.

Constant Currency (CC) Change Metric – We present CC information to provide a framework for assessing how our underlying business performed excluding the effects of foreign currency rate fluctuations. To present CC information, FY'22 and comparative prior period results for entities reporting in currencies other than United States dollars are converted into United States dollars using the foreign exchange rate as of September 30, 2021, rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during that period.

Operating Measures

ARR – To help investors understand and assess the performance of our business as a SaaS and on-premise subscription company we provide an ARR (Annual Run Rate) operating measure.  ARR represents the annualized value of our portfolio of active subscription software, cloud, SaaS, and support contracts as of the end of the reporting period.  ARR includes orders placed under our Strategic Alliance Agreement with Rockwell Automation, including orders placed to satisfy contractual minimum commitments. 

We believe ARR is a valuable operating metric to measure the health of a subscription business because it captures expected subscription and support cash generation from customers.

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this press release that are not historic facts, including statements about our future financial and growth expectations and targets, and potential stock repurchases, are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. These risks include: the macroeconomic and/or global manufacturing climates may not improve when or as we expect, or may deteriorate, due to, among other factors, the COVID-19 pandemic and the effects of the Russia/Ukraine conflict, which could cause customers to delay or reduce purchases of new software, reduce the number of subscriptions they carry, or delay payments to us, all of which would adversely affect ARR and our financial results, including cash flow; our businesses, including our SaaS businesses, may not expand and/or generate the revenue or ARR we expect if customers are slower to adopt our technologies than we expect or if they adopt competing technologies; our signed transactions with Intland Software and ITC Infotech may not close when or as we expect due to the failure to achieve the applicable closing conditions and such transactions may not have the expected effects on our business or results of operations; our strategic initiatives and investments, including our restructuring and our accelerated investments in our transition to SaaS, may not deliver the results when or as we expect; we may be unable to generate sufficient operating cash flow to repay amounts under our credit facility or to return 50% of free cash flow to shareholders, and other uses of cash or our credit facility limits or other matters could preclude such repayment and/or repurchases; and foreign exchange rates may differ materially from those we expect.  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. 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 most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.

(2) Expense recognized due to the reduction in value of an equity investment in a publicly-traded company.


(3) Income tax adjustments reflect the tax effects of non-GAAP adjustments which are calculated by applying the applicable tax rate by jurisdiction to the non-GAAP adjustments listed above.  In 2021 we had recorded a full valuation allowance against our U.S. net deferred tax assets. As we were profitable on a non-GAAP basis, the 2021 tax provision was calculated assuming there was no valuation allowance.  Additionally, our non-GAAP results for the six months ended March 31, 2021 excluded tax expenses of $34.6 million related to a South Korean tax exposure, primarily related to foreign withholding taxes.
