Autodesk Inc. Q3 adjusted earnings Beat Estimates
Strong revenue and current remaining performance obligations growth, up 18% to $1,126 million and 21% to $2,877 million

Autodesk (ADSK), a maker of design software and tools for project workflow, late Tuesday edged by analyst estimates for its fiscal third quarter. But its outlook for the current quarter came up short. ADSK stock plunged in extended trading.

Autodesk (ADSK) came out with quarterly earnings of $1.33 per share, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $1.25 per share. This compares to earnings of $1.04 per share a year ago. These figures are adjusted for non-recurring items.

“Our customers continue to embrace and prioritize digital transformation to drive growth, efficiency, and sustainability, generating strong demand for Autodesk’s platform,” said Andrew Anagnost, Autodesk president and CEO. “We are rapidly innovating and optimizing our business to enable more customers to experience our ecosystem, and realize the opportunities ahead.”
“Demand was robust in Q3, driving strong new subscriptions growth and renewal rates. We expect it to remain so in Q4,” said Debbie Clifford, Autodesk CFO. “However, supply chain disruption and resulting inflationary pressures, a
global labor shortage, and the ebb and flow of COVID, are impacting the pace of our recovery and outlook.”

This quarterly report represents an earnings surprise of 6.40%. A quarter ago, it was expected that this design software company would post earnings of $1.11 per share when it actually produced earnings of $1.21, delivering a surprise of 9.01%.

Over the last four quarters, the company has surpassed consensus EPS estimates four times.

Autodesk, which belongs to the Zacks Computer – Software industry, posted revenues of $1.13 billion for the quarter ended October 2021, surpassing the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 0.69%. This compares to year-ago revenues of $952.4 million. The company has topped consensus revenue estimates four times over the last four quarters.
