"We are pleased with the progress of our business model transition," said  Carl Bass, Autodesk president and CEO.

For the past two years we've been preparing for this transition and we're now ready to accelerate the process."

Second Quarter Operational Overview

As a reminder, Autodesk is undergoing a business model transition in which the company will discontinue selling new perpetual licenses in favor of subscriptions and flexible license arrangements. During the transition, billings, revenue, gross margin, operating margin, EPS, deferred revenue, and cash flow from operations will be impacted as more revenue is recognized ratably rather than up front and as new offerings bring a wider variety of price points.

Revenue in the Americas increased 6 percent compared to the second quarter last year to $236 million. EMEA revenue was $226 million, a decrease of 7 percent compared to the second quarter last year as reported, and flat on a constant currency basis. Revenue in APAC was $148 million, a decrease of 13 percent compared to the second quarter last year as reported, and 9 percent on a constant currency basis. Revenue from emerging economies was $92 million, a decrease of 7 percent compared to the second quarter last year as reported, and 5 percent on a constant currency basis. Revenue from emerging economies represented 15 percent of total revenue in the second quarter.

Revenue from the Architecture, Engineering and Construction business segment was $233 million, an increase of 7 percent compared to the second quarter last year. Revenue from the Platform Solutions and Emerging Business segment was $164 million, a decrease of 21 percent compared to the second quarter last year. Revenue from the Manufacturing business segment was $171 million, an increase of 2 percent compared to the second quarter last year. Revenue from the Media and Entertainment business segment was $41 million, a decrease of 6 percent compared to the second quarter last year.

Revenue from Suites was $226 million, a decrease of 3 percent compared to the second quarter last year. Revenue from New and Adjacent products was $112 million, an increase of 13 percent compared to the second quarter last year.

In the second quarter, Autodesk recorded a non-cash GAAP tax charge of $214 million to establish a valuation allowance on certain U.S. deferred tax assets. Due to Autodesk's pre-tax U.S. GAAP cumulative loss over the last three years, the company evaluated its deferred tax assets and determined that a valuation allowance was required. This is a GAAP-only charge and has no impact to cash this year or in the future. Autodesk will continue to monitor the application of this accounting rule and will consider reversing the valuation allowance when conditions warrant.
