The Q4 non-GAAP EPS results include a tax rate of 24% and 120 million diluted shares outstanding. The Q4 GAAP EPS results include a tax rate of 21% and 120 million diluted shares outstanding.
James Heppelmann, President & CEO, said, “PTC had a very strong finish to FY’11, with record Q4 non-GAAP revenue and non-GAAP EPS both exceeding the high-end of our guidance range. Our licence revenue of $111.0 million was up 25% on a year-over-year basis, driven by solid organic growth of 15% and better-than-expected performance from Integrity (MKS). In addition to continued momentum in our Desktop (MCAD) business, which experienced 17% year-over-year revenue growth, our Enterprise (PLM) business delivered very strong results with non-GAAP revenue up 39% year over year and 21% on an organic basis. We also continue to see robust adoption of our PLM solutions, as is reflected in our 20% and 30% year-over-year increases in organic maintenance and services revenue, respectively. Overall, we delivered 27% total non-GAAP revenue growth compared to the year ago period.” On a constant currency basis, total non-GAAP revenue growth was 20% and licence revenue growth was 18% when compared to Q4’10.”
Jeff Glidden, Chief Financial Officer, said, “From a profitability standpoint, we had a very strong quarter; we delivered $0.47 non-GAAP EPS, this despite a $0.02 headwind due to a higher-than-expected tax rate, other expense items and currency effects. Non-GAAP EPS was up 47% from $0.32 non-GAAP EPS in Q4’10. We ended Q4 with $168 million of cash down from $261 million at the end of Q3, reflecting in part $50 million used to repay our revolving credit facility, $15 million for stock repurchases, and $15 million for the acquisition of 4CS.”
