Parametric Technology Reports Fiscal 1999 Second Quarter Results

WALTHAM, Mass., April 20, 1999 - Parametric Technology Corporation (NASDAQ: PMTC) today reported its results for the second quarter ended April 3, 1999.

Revenue for the second quarter was $263.2 million, compared with $264.1 million for the same period last year. Pro forma net income, which excludes nonrecurring charges related to acquisitions and extraordinary items, was $42.8 million, or $0.16 per share, compared with pro forma net income of $66.0 million, or $0.24 per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 1998. PTC's pro forma results include the effects of amortization of intangible assets associated with acquisitions.

During the second quarter of fiscal 1999, Parametric Technology completed the acquisition of Division Group plc and auxilium inc. for a combined purchase price of approximately $150 million. Division, with headquarters in Bristol, UK, and San Diego, Calif., is a developer of enterprise product data visualization, simulation and integration tools. auxilium, with headquarters in Mendota Heights, Minn., is a developer of web-based software tools for the integration of legacy systems, databases and applications. The company also recorded a nonrecurring charge of $39.5 million related to the write-off of in-process research and development for the two acquisitions as well as certain intangible assets and costs associated with company-wide expense reduction efforts.

Including nonrecurring charges related to acquisitions and extraordinary items, net income for the second quarter was $10.5 million, or $0.04 per share, compared with a net loss of $15.9 million, or ($0.06) per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 1998.

Commenting on PTC's results, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Steven C. Walske stated: "Our recent initiatives involving Pro/ENGINEER, Windchill, and our sales and service organizations showed signs of improvement in both sales productivity and revenue growth this quarter over last. Additionally, our business in Japan improved with several large sales, including the largest deal in the company's history, from Yanmar Diesel Engine Co., Ltd."

Walske noted that Windchill continued to be well received in the marketplace as a growing number of companies worldwide were evaluating, testing, piloting or entering production with Windchill technology to address a variety of business issues. Examples of Windchill activity this quarter included:

In addition to the Yanmar and Hyundai orders, other significant Pro/ENGINEER orders were received in the second quarter from Eaton Corp., Fuji Electric, Harris Corp., Hitachi, INA Werk Schaeffler, LuK, SVG Lithography Systems and York International. In all, the company shipped more than 8,700 new seats of software during the quarter, increasing the total number of seats installed to approximately 213,600. The company also added approximately 1,100 new customers worldwide, bringing PTC's total customer base to over 25,000.

Walske continued: "As part of our ongoing efforts to improve sales productivity, we reorganized the Windchill sales force in order to better represent PTC's full product line to larger customers. We also completed the Division and auxilium acquisitions during the quarter, both of which are critical to our strategy of establishing Windchill as a key enabling technology for Internet-based product and process lifecycle management.

"Combined with our fiscal first quarter acquisition of InPart Design, Inc., a component and supplier management application for the Windchill platform, these acquisitions diluted the company's reported earnings per share by $0.02 in the second quarter and are expected to dilute earnings per share by $0.03 in each of the third and fourth quarters. The acquisitions are expected to contribute to earnings growth during the fiscal year beginning October 1999.

"Aside from acquisitions, we continued to aggressively develop Windchill during the quarter and shipped Release 2.0 which includes new functionality in the area of workflow and process management. Also, Tecnomatix Technologies Ltd. endorsed the Windchill web-centric approach to product and process lifecycle management by agreeing to integrate its "Digital Factory" applications within the Windchill environment."

Also in the second quarter, PTC announced the newest release of its suite of mechanical design automation applications, Pro/ENGINEER 2000i. This release, described by industry analysts as "a new benchmark for solid modeling technology," introduced a unique set of behavioral modeling capabilities, new functionality for very large assemblies, adaptive process features, and intelligent knowledge-based manufacturing. The release also included major enhancements for sharing engineering information over the Internet and it provided significant ease-of-use advancements with its Windows-native graphical user interface.

Walske concluded: "The business developments I've highlighted indicate our enthusiasm for the opportunities in our core business and in our newer market initiatives. With our recent acquisitions we have now combined web-based data management (Windchill) with web-based legacy data integration (auxilium) and web-based data visualization (Division).

"We are encouraged by our progress this quarter and we continue to believe that our ongoing distribution, product and technology initiatives are long-term positives for the company. However, we continue to be cautious in our outlook because the impact of these ongoing initiatives on our near-term results remains uncertain."
