|Autodesk's First Quarter Results Led By Strong Annualized Recurring Revenue (ARR) Growth|
"Our first quarter results are a good start to the new fiscal year and demonstrate Autodesk is firmly in the growth phase of our business model transition," said Andrew Anagnost, Autodesk president and CEO. "Once again, our focus on driving growth in ARR has yielded strong results, which we believe will accelerate as we move through the year. Our focus and investment on our customers' experience continued to drive customers to migrate from maintenance to subscription during the quarter. We've now seen approximately half a million maintenance subscriptions convert to product subscriptions in less than a year and we expect that number to grow significantly in the coming quarters."
"Our growth in ARR was only part of the story during the first quarter, as we also delivered strong growth in billings, total deferred revenue, and ARPS," said Scott Herren, Autodesk CFO. "This quarter also marked another milestone in our business model transition with our return to non-GAAP profitability. Overall, we remain confident in achieving the targets we set for this year and the long-term targets laid out at our recent investor day."
