Autodesk Reports Second Quarter Financial Results


(1) On a constant currency basis, billings growth would be 9% - 11%.

(2) On a constant currency basis, revenue growth would be 3% - 5%.

(3) GAAP net loss per diluted share includes $0.94 related to the non-cash GAAP tax charge of $214 million to reduce U.S. deferred tax assets. The charge reflects the business model transition and resulting reduction in our pre-tax U.S. GAAP profitability.

(4) Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share exclude $0.94 related to the non-cash GAAP tax charge to reduce U.S. deferred tax assets, $0.75 related to stock-based compensation expense, and $0.31 for the amortization of acquisition related intangibles, offset by $0.01 for gains on strategic investment, net of tax.

The third quarter and full year fiscal 2016 outlook assume a projected annual effective tax rate of 24 percent and 26 percent for GAAP and non-GAAP results, respectively.
