"We are pleased with our stronger than expected fourth quarter results,” said Carl Bass, Autodesk president and CEO. “While the global economic picture remains mixed, we ended the year strong, driven by increasing demand for our design and creation suites, record revenue in our AEC and manufacturing business segments, and strong large deal volume.“Our ongoing cost management measures, which we consider as simply running the business wisely, contributed to the delivery of meaningful non-GAAP operating margin improvement for the year,” continued Bass. "We achieved record non-GAAP EPS despite a mixed economy and lower than expected revenue growth. We also made meaningful progress on our 360 family of cloud based products, which we believe positions us and our customers for success in the future. Looking forward to fiscal 2014, we are continuing to lead the industry in innovation and drive revenue and profitability growth."
