  • Non-GAAP operating margin increased by approximately 140 basis points to 25 percent, compared with 24 percent in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is provided in the accompanying tables.

Fiscal 2013

  • Record total billings and maintenance billings.

  • Cash flow from operations was $559 million, a decrease of 3 percent compared to fiscal 2012.

"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."
