Autodesk First Quarter Results Driven by Strong Subscription Additions

First Quarter Fiscal 2017

  • Total annualized recurring revenue (ARR) was $1.44 billion, an increase of 9 percent compared to the first quarter last year as reported, and 12 percent on a constant currency basis.

"Our customers and partners continue to embrace Autodesk's transition to a subscription-based business model and cloud-based software. We continue to diligently control our costs while investing in the transition. We're striking a healthy balance in achieving both short-term and long-term goals."
