NEEDHAM, Mass. - April 24, 2013 - PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC) today reported results for its second fiscal quarter ended March 30, 2013. 

Highlights

Q2 Results:


Q3 Guidance:

 
FY'13 Targets:

The Q2 non-GAAP revenue and non-GAAP EPS results exclude a $0.7 million effect of purchase accounting on the fair value of the acquired deferred maintenance balance of Servigistics. The Q2 non-GAAP EPS results also exclude $11.8 million of stock-based compensation expense, $11.3 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization, $15.8 million of restructuring charges, and $2.1 million of acquisition-related expense. The Q2 non-GAAP EPS results include a tax rate of 19% and 121 million diluted shares outstanding. 

Results Commentary

James Heppelmann, president and chief executive officer, commented, "We are pleased with PTC's Q2 operating results, with non-GAAP revenue at the mid-point of our guidance range and non-GAAP EPS exceeding the high end of our guidance range. Our license revenue of $80 million was up 7% year over year (9% on a constant currency basis), consistent with our guidance range, with flat organic license revenue (up 3% on a constant currency basis).  Servigistics performed well again this quarter, delivering results in line with our expectations. From a geographic perspective, we had a very strong quarter in Japan and solid growth in the Pac Rim, which was offset by soft results in Europe and Americas reflecting the current macro environment."

Heppelmann added, "While we are encouraged by improvements in year-over-year performance in CAD and Extended PLM relative to Q1'13, large deal closure rates continue to be muted by the macroeconomic environment. We had 24 large deals (recognized license + services revenue of more than $1 million) in Q2'13. Consistent with recent quarters, the mix of large deal revenue was skewed more heavily toward services reflecting a lower level of large license transactions. During the quarter we recognized revenue from leading organizations such as Airbus, Astrium, Cummins, MAN Truck and Bus, NASA, NEC, Thales, and the U.S. Army." 

Jeff Glidden, chief financial officer, commented, "From a profitability standpoint we had a very strong quarter; we delivered $0.41 non-GAAP EPS and achieved a 20.0% non-GAAP operating margin, exceeding the high-end of our guidance range by 200 basis points. We generated $83 million in operating cash flow and used $60 million to partially repay our credit facility and $19 million for stock repurchases, ending the quarter with a cash balance of $241 million."  Q2 GAAP EPS was $0.14 and GAAP operating margin was 6.8%.

Outlook Commentary

"We continue to be excited about our long-term growth opportunity based on the strength of our pipeline, competitive wins in our core markets, as well as the significant interest we are seeing in our broader solution areas. While the slowdown in the global manufacturing industry and uncertainty about the near-term economy remain headwinds for revenue growth, we are committed to driving operating margin expansion and achieving our goal of 25% to 27% non-GAAP operating margin in FY'15," said Heppelmann. 

Glidden added, "For Q3'13, we are providing guidance of $315 to $330 million in non-GAAP revenue with $80 to $90 million in license revenue, $75 to $80 million in services revenue and approximately $160 million in non-GAAP support revenue. We are expecting Q3 non-GAAP EPS of $0.40 to $0.45." The GAAP revenue target is $314 to $329 million, the GAAP support revenue target is $159 million, and the GAAP EPS target range is $0.22 to $0.27. 

The Q3 guidance assumes $1.31 USD / EURO, 100 YEN / USD, a non-GAAP tax rate of 22%, a GAAP tax rate of 27% and 121 million diluted shares outstanding. The Q3 non-GAAP guidance excludes $0.5 million of the effect of purchase accounting on deferred maintenance revenue from Servigistics, $13 million of stock-based compensation expense, $0.5 million of acquisition related expenses, $11 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization expense, their related income tax effects, as well as any additional discrete tax items and restructuring charges. 

Glidden continued, "Looking to the full year FY'13, we are targeting non-GAAP revenue of $1,305 to $1,315 million, reflecting concerns around the timing of global economic recovery and approximately $10 million impact due to unfavorable currency movements. We are maintaining our non-GAAP EPS guidance of $1.70 to $1.80 reflecting our continued vigilance on cost controls and commitment to profitability.  We are targeting license revenue of $350 to $360 million, services revenue of approximately $305 million and non-GAAP support revenue of approximately $650 million. We continue to target approximately 200 basis points of non-GAAP operating margin improvement during FY'13." We are targeting GAAP revenue of $1,302 to $1,312 million (including GAAP support revenue of $647 million) and GAAP EPS of $1.03 to $1.13. 

The FY'13 targets assume a non-GAAP tax rate of 22%, a GAAP tax rate of 4% and 121 million diluted shares outstanding.  The FY'13 non-GAAP targets exclude approximately $31 million in restructuring charges, $3 million of the effect of purchase accounting on acquired Servigistics deferred revenue, $51 million of stock-based compensation expense, $45 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization, $7 million of acquisition-related expenses, their related income tax effects, as well as any additional discrete tax items and restructuring charges.

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 Servigistics, Inc. and MKS, 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 discrete 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.   

Other Important Information

As we have previously disclosed, we have been cooperating to provide information to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Justice concerning payments and expenses by certain of our business partners in China and/or by employees of our Chinese subsidiary that raise questions concerning compliance with laws, including the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.  The SEC has informed us that its investigation is substantially complete and the Department of Justice has not yet indicated the status of its investigation.   Resolution of this matter could include fines and penalties; however we are unable to estimate an amount and we have not recorded a liability for this matter.  If we are required to record a liability for this matter this could materially impact our results for the period in which the liability is recorded and, depending on timing, could involve an adjustment to our Q2FY13 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 and that our pipeline deals may not convert as 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 support growth rates that we expect, which could result in a different mix of revenue between license, service and support and could impact our EPS results, the possibility that the rate of growth of our CAD and Extended PLM solutions may not continue to increase, the risk that sales of our newly expanded SLM solutions, including Servigistics, may not generate the revenue we expect, the possibility that resource constraints and personnel reductions could adversely affect our revenue,  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 legal entity mergers completed during the quarter.  
                     
  (4) Reflects the tax effects of non-GAAP adjustments for the three and six months ended March 30, 2013 and March 31, 2012, which are calculated by applying the applicable tax rate by jurisdiction to the non-GAAP adjustments listed above, as well as any one-time non-cash GAAP charges.  In the fourth quarter of 2012, a valuation allowance was established against our U.S. net deferred tax assets.  As the U.S. is profitable on a non-GAAP basis, the 2013 non-GAAP tax provision is being calculated assuming there is no U.S. valuation allowance and, as a result, an income tax benefit of $4.1 million and $10.3 million is included for the three and six months ended March 30, 2013.  The three and six months ended March 30, 2013 excludes tax benefits of $3.2 million relating to final resolution of a long standing tax litigation and completion of an international jurisdiction tax audit.  The six months ended March 30, 2013 includes a one-time non-cash tax benefit of $32.6 million related to the release of a portion of the valuation allowance as a result of deferred tax liabilities established in accounting for the acquisition of Servigistics.  The six months ended March 31, 2012 exclude one-time non-cash GAAP charges net, of $1.4 million related to the impact from a reduction in the statutory tax rate in Japan on deferred tax assets from a litigation settlement.
