Aspen Technology Announces Financial Results For The Second Quarter Of Fiscal 2013

Aspen Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: AZPN), a leading provider of software and services to the process industries, today announced financial results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2013, ended December 31, 2012.

“AspenTech delivered strong second quarter results that exceeded our guidance on all key metrics. We continue to see strong customer demand and product usage patterns, which contributed to our solid year-over-year annual spend growth of nearly 13% during the second quarter,” said Mark Fusco, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The company’s operational execution remains at a high level, which is evidenced by free cash flow generation of $34.5 million during the quarter. With over $50 million of free cash flow generated during the first half of our fiscal year, we feel very good about the company’s position as we are heading into our seasonally strongest cash flow quarter.”

Fusco added, “Looking ahead, we are encouraged by the strength of our pipeline and business momentum. We believe the company is tracking well against each of our key full year objectives, including growth, cash flow, revenue and profitability.”
