“We achieved multiple milestones in fiscal 2019 and are entering fiscal 2020 with strong momentum,” said Andrew Anagnost, Autodesk president and CEO. “With less than 20 percent of our revenues coming from maintenance, we are effectively finished with our business model transition and now look forward to executing on our multi-year growth strategy. Our core design offerings and cloud-based solutions for construction, manufacturing and production are benefiting our customers as they undergo their own digital transformations, which offers an ongoing tailwind to our business. We are particularly excited about entering the new fiscal year with an unrivaled portfolio of cloud-based solutions for construction.”

“With over $300 million in free cash flow for the year, we delivered well above our target and are demonstrating the cash generating power of our model,” said Scott Herren, Autodesk CFO. “Fiscal 2019 was a year of solid execution as we accomplished multiple financial milestones that have positioned us well to keep driving growth in fiscal 2020 and beyond.  We’re exiting the business model transition with a much more predictable business at 95 percent recurring revenue and feel confident about our free cash flow goal for fiscal 2020.”
