Autodesk Meets Third-Quarter Expectations But Misses With Outlook

Autodesk (ADSK), a maker of design software and tools for project workflow, late Tuesday matched expectations for its fiscal third quarter but guided below views for the current quarter. ADSK stock fell in extended trading.

The San Rafael, Calif.-based company earned an adjusted $1.70 a share on sales of $1.28 billion in the quarter ended Oct. 31. Those results met the consensus estimates of analysts polled by FactSet. On a year-over-year basis, Autodesk earnings rose 27% while sales climbed 14%.

For the current quarter ending Jan. 31, Autodesk forecast adjusted earnings $1.80 a share on sales of $1.31 billion. That's based on the midpoint of its outlook. Analysts were modeling earnings of $1.83 a share on sales of $1.33 billion in the fiscal fourth quarter.

"In a more challenging macroeconomic environment, Autodesk performed in line with our expectations in the third quarter," Chief Financial Officer Debbie Clifford said in a news release.
