Autodesk Reports Third Quarter Results
"Looking forward, due to the increasing uncertainty in the macroeconomic environment and our slower than planned revenue growth in fiscal 2013, we are reassessing our long-term financial model (through fiscal 2015) and are not providing revenue targets at this time," continued Hawkins. "While revenue growth will be a key determining factor in the years to come, we remain committed to growing our non-GAAP operating margin and believe we can achieve a 30+ percent run rate as we exit our fiscal 2015."
The following statements are forward-looking statements that are based on current expectations and assumptions, and involve risks and uncertainties some of which are set forth below. Autodesk's business outlook for the fourth quarter and full year fiscal 2013 assumes a continuation of the current economic environment and foreign exchange currency rate environment.

A reconciliation between the GAAP and non-GAAP estimates for fiscal 2013 is provided in the tables following this press release.
Both fourth quarter fiscal 2013 and full year fiscal 2013 outlooks assume annual effective tax rates of approximately 24.5 percent and 25.5 percent for GAAP and non-GAAP results, respectively. These rates do not include the federal R&D tax credit benefit, which expired on December 31, 2011, or one-time discrete items. The assumed effective tax rate will be adjusted if or when there is a renewal of the tax credit.
