Results Commentary James Heppelmann, president and chief executive officer, commented, "For the second quarter, our total non-GAAP revenue was $302 million and our non-GAAP EPS was $0.30. As we discussed on our April 5, 2012 conference call, Q2 financial results were below expectations due to reduced license sales, impacted primarily by a large transaction in Europe that did not close and lower than expected performance in North America. Total license revenue of $75 million increased 1% year over year and on an organic basis decreased 10% year over year. Our total revenue was up 12%, reflecting contribution from MKS and 4CS as well as the growth of our maintenance and services business. On an organic constant currency basis, our total revenue was up 4% year over year." Heppelmann added, "While we are disappointed with our Q2 results, our market momentum and competitive positioning remain strong and we expect our pipeline to benefit over time from our focus on increasing sales capacity. Our organizational realignment around five market segments is progressing on plan and, importantly, we remain committed to driving long-term operating margin improvement." Jeff Glidden, chief financial officer, commented, "We delivered $0.30 of non-GAAP EPS in part due to better than anticipated services margins and continued discipline on operating expenses. We ended Q2'12 with $224 million of cash, up from $187 million at the end of Q1'12, reflecting strong operating cash flow, $40 million used to repay our revolving credit facility and $15 million for stock repurchases." Outlook Commentary Glidden continued, "Looking to the full year FY'12, we are now targeting non-GAAP revenue growth of 8% to 10%. We are targeting license revenue growth of approximately 5%, services growth of approximately 14% and non-GAAP maintenance growth of approximately 9%.

We expect MKS and 4CS to contribute approximately $90 million in revenue for the full year, including $3 million in non-GAAP revenue.

We continue to anticipate significant improvement in services non-GAAP net margins with a target of approximately 10% to 11% for the year.

Even with lower license revenue expectations for FY'12, we are targeting approximately 130bps of non-GAAP operating margin improvement, which reflects our focus on improving profitability. Our new FY'12 non-GAAP EPS target is $1.42 to $1.50." The FY'12 targets assume a non-GAAP tax rate of 25%, a GAAP tax rate of 20% and 121 million diluted shares outstanding. The FY'12 non-GAAP targets exclude approximately $21 million in restructuring charges, $3 million for the effect of purchase accounting on acquired MKS deferred maintenance revenue, $51 million of stock-based compensation expense, $36 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization, $1 million of other expense, $3 million of acquisition-related expenses, and their related income tax effects.

Glidden added, "For Q3, we are providing guidance of $300 to $315 million in non-GAAP revenue, which includes approximately $22 million in non-GAAP revenue from the MKS and 4CS businesses. We are expecting approximately $75 to $85 million in license revenue in Q3, services revenue growth of approximately 12%, and non-GAAP maintenance revenue growth of approximately 7%. We are expecting non-GAAP EPS of $0.28 to $0.32." For Q3, the GAAP EPS target is $0.15 to $0.20.

The Q3 guidance assumes a non-GAAP tax rate of 25%, a GAAP tax rate of 20% and 121 million diluted shares outstanding. The Q3 non-GAAP guidance excludes $0.2 million for the effect of purchase accounting on acquired MKS deferred maintenance revenue, $12 million of stock-based compensation expense, $9 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization expense, and their related income tax effects.

Important Information About Non-GAAP References PTC provides non-GAAP supplemental information to its financial results. Non-GAAP revenue, operating expenses, margin and EPS exclude the effect of purchase accounting on the fair value of the acquired deferred maintenance balance of MKS Inc., stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related expenses, restructuring charges, certain foreign currency transaction losses, and the related tax effects of the preceding items and any one-time tax items. We use these non-GAAP measures, and we believe that they assist our investors, to make period-to-period comparisons of our operational performance because they provide a view of our operating results without items that are not, in our view, indicative of our core operating results. We believe that these non-GAAP measures help illustrate underlying trends in our business, and we use the measures to establish budgets and operational goals, communicated internally and externally, for managing our business and evaluating our performance. We believe that providing non-GAAP measures affords investors a view of our operating results that may be more easily compared to the results of peer companies.

In addition, compensation of our executives is based in part on the performance of our business based on these non-GAAP measures. However, non-GAAP information should not be construed as an alternative to GAAP information as the items excluded from the non-GAAP measures often have a material impact on PTC's financial results. Management uses, and investors should consider, non-GAAP measures in conjunction with our GAAP results.

Forward-Looking Statements Statements in this press release that are not historic facts, including statements about our fiscal 2012 financial expectations and other future financial and growth expectations, are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. These risks include the possibility that customers may not purchase our solutions when or at the rates we expect, the possibility that foreign currency exchange rates may vary from our expectations and thereby affect our reported revenue and expense, the possibility that we may not achieve the license, services or maintenance growth rates that we expect, which could result in a different mix of revenue between license, service and maintenance and could impact our EPS results, the possibility that increases in sales capacity might not generate the additional sales pipeline and revenue that we expect, the possibility that new product releases and the MKS and 4CS businesses may not generate the revenue we expect, the possibility that we may be unable to achieve our profitability targets with lower license revenue, and the possibility that remedial actions we are taking in China following our previously announced investigation could adversely affect our revenue in China. In addition, our assumptions concerning our future GAAP and non-GAAP effective income tax rates are based on estimates and other factors that could change, including the geographic mix of our revenue, expenses and profits and loans and cash repatriations from foreign subsidiaries. Other risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected are detailed from time to time in reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K and our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.
