New Long-Term Financial Targets

PTC is today announcing revised financial targets for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2021 (FY2021) and introducing financial targets for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2023 (FY2023).



  FY2021 Target(1)   FY2023 Target(1)

Software Revenue

  $1.7 Billion   $2.2 Billion

Total Revenue

  $1.9 Billion   $2.4 Billion

Subscription Mix

  85%   85%

Annual Recurring Software Revenue

  95%   95%

Non-GAAP Operating Margin(2)

  Low 30%   37%


  $4.30   $6.50

Free Cash Flow

(1) These future targets do not take into consideration the impact of ASC 606, which PTC will adopt as of October 1, 2018 (FY2019).
(2) These future non-GAAP financial targets cannot be reconciled to GAAP as the items that impact GAAP results that we generally exclude from our non-GAAP financial measures are not known nor estimable. Those items may cause our GAAP financial results to differ materially from our non-GAAP financial targets and results.

Stock Repurchases and Accelerated Share Repurchase

In connection with our previously announced stock repurchase program, and subject to completion of the contemplated $1.0 billion investment by Rockwell Automation, Inc. pursuant to that certain Securities Purchase Agreement dated as of June 11, 2018 by and between PTC and Rockwell Automation, PTC intends to enter into an accelerated share repurchase agreement with an investment bank to repurchase all or a significant portion of the additional $1.0 billion of stock repurchases authorized to be undertaken after the closing of the contemplated Rockwell Automation investment. The Company’s stock repurchase program does not obligate the Company to repurchase any shares and may be terminated, increased or decreased by the Board in its discretion at any time.
