Autodesk Reports Strong Third Quarter Results

Total recurring revenue in the third quarter was 76 percent of total revenue compared to 56 percent of total revenue in the third quarter last year.

As a reminder, during the business model transition, revenue has been and will be negatively impacted as more revenue is recognized ratably rather than up front and as new product offerings generally have a lower initial purchase price. As part of the business model transition, Autodesk discontinued new perpetual license sales for most individual products at the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 and for suites at the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2017.

Revenue in the Americas was $213 million, a decrease of 10 percent compared to the third quarter last year as reported, and 9 percent on a constant currency basis. Revenue in EMEA was $191 million, a decrease of 15 percent compared to the third quarter last year as reported, and 9 percent on a constant currency basis. Revenue in APAC was $85 million, a decrease of 39 percent compared to the third quarter last year as reported, and 38 percent on a constant currency basis.

Revenue from our Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) product family was $212 million, a decrease of 6 percent compared to the third quarter last year. Revenue from our Manufacturing product family was $147 million, a decrease of 16 percent compared to the third quarter last year. Combined revenue from AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT was $80 million, a decrease of 44 percent compared to the third quarter last year. Revenue from our Media and Entertainment (M&E) product family was $34 million, a decrease of 13 percent compared to the third quarter last year.
