C. Richard Harrison, chairman and chief executive officer, commented, "Q2 was another solid quarter for PTC with total revenue up 7% year-over-year and license revenue up 54%. Adjusting for FX impact relative to guidance, our revenue performance was at the high-end of our expectations, driven primarily by continued strength of our PLM business." On a constant currency basis total Q2 revenue was up 3% and license revenue was up 48% compared to the year ago period.
"Our PLM license revenue in Q2 was $30 million, up 107% year-over-year, continuing to highlight our leadership position in a large and growing segment of the enterprise software market," continued Harrison. "Our pipeline for new business opportunities with new and existing customers remains strong. During the quarter we recognized revenue from leading organizations such as BAE Systems, EADS, Huawei Technologies, NASA, the United States Navy, and Vestas Wind Systems."
James Heppelmann, president and chief operating officer added, "We believe there is a lot of momentum in the PLM market and that PTC is gaining share and becoming recognized as the industry leader for both our technology and product development process expertise. We secured 2 additional strategically important ‘domino' account wins during Q2, bringing the total number of domino account wins to 13. We are also engaged in more than 200 other opportunities world-wide where companies are looking to replace their existing PLM solution to help improve their competitive position in their own markets."
"We are very optimistic about the long-term opportunity for PTC and are committed to achieve our goal of a 20% non-GAAP EPS CAGR over the next 5 years," continued Heppelmann. "In order to enable us to achieve this goal, we are investing to extend our technology leadership position and expand our high caliber, solutions oriented sales teams. We expect to add up to 30 more sales teams through the end of FY'10, which will significantly increase capacity as we enter FY'11. As of Q2'10, we are well positioned to achieve at least 20% non-GAAP EPS growth in FY'10."
Neil Moses, chief financial officer, commented, "Our strong license revenue and solid maintenance revenue performance was partly offset by a year-over-year decline in our services revenue as we continue to work through the impact of soft license sales in 2009. Our CAD and SMB businesses are showing signs of recovery, as both businesses delivered sequential license revenue growth. Our balance sheet remains solid with $223 million of cash. During Q2 we repurchased $40 million worth of stock and repaid $20 million of our outstanding debt; leaving a balance of $34 million outstanding on our revolving credit facility."
"Looking forward to the remainder of FY'10, despite FX movements we are maintaining our full-year revenue target of $1,015 million and non-GAAP EPS target of $1.00," continued Moses. "We have lowered our currency assumption from $1.46 USD/EURO to $1.36 USD/EURO, which negatively impacts revenue by approximately $18 million for FY'10 and which makes achieving these full year targets more challenging. We are increasing our license revenue growth expectations to 35% to 40% year over year, with our maintenance and services businesses now expected to be down modestly on a year-over-year basis."
"We are maintaining our non-GAAP operating margin target of 16%," continued Moses, "as we intend to continue to invest in our business to leverage our technology leadership position and capitalize on our long-term growth opportunity. We expect to pay down the remaining $34 million on our revolving credit facility and repurchase an additional $15 million worth of our stock during the remainder of FY'10.". For FY'10 the GAAP operating margin target is 7.5% and the GAAP EPS target is $0.50.
The FY'10 targets assume a non-GAAP tax rate of 25%, a GAAP tax rate of 17% and 120 million diluted shares outstanding. The FY'10 non-GAAP guidance excludes approximately $49 million of stock-based compensation expense, $34 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization and $27 million of related income tax effects.
"For Q3 we are initiating guidance of $235 to $245 million in revenue with non-GAAP EPS of $0.14 to $0.20," Moses added. "We are expecting approximately 30% year-over-year growth in our license revenue in Q3 and 7% year-over-year growth in total revenue." The Q3 GAAP EPS target is $0.02 - $0.07.
The Q3 guidance assumes a non-GAAP tax rate of 23%, a GAAP tax rate of 15% and 120 million diluted shares outstanding. The Q3 non-GAAP guidance excludes approximately $12 million of stock-based compensation expense, $9 million of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization expense and $6 million of related income tax effects.

Important Information About Non-GAAP References
PTC provides non-GAAP supplemental information to its financial results. Non-GAAP operating expenses, margin and EPS exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquired in-process research and development expense, restructuring charges, and the related tax effects of the preceding items and any one-time tax items. PTC provides this non-GAAP information to facilitate period-to-period comparisons of its operational performance by adjusting for certain non-cash and certain episodic expenses. We believe that providing non-GAAP measures affords investors a view of our operating results that may be more easily compared to peer companies. PTC management also uses this and other non-GAAP financial information to evaluate, manage and plan our business because the information provides additional insight into ongoing financial performance. In addition, compensation of our executives is based in part on the performance of our business based on these non-GAAP measures. However, non-GAAP information should not be construed as an alternative to GAAP information as the items excluded from the non-GAAP measures often have a material impact on PTC's financial results. Management uses, and investors should use, non-GAAP measures in conjunction with our GAAP results. We calculate revenue and expenses on a constant currency basis to obtain a view of the performance of our business without the effect of differences in foreign currency exchange rates used for translation. We calculate these measures by applying the applicable prior period exchange rates to current period revenues and expenses.
Statements in this press release that are not historic facts, including statements about our fiscal 2010 and other future financial and growth expectations, anticipated tax rates, the expected impact of our planned strategic investments on our future growth, and the long-term prospects for the PLM segment of the enterprise software market are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. These risks include the possibility that customers may not purchase our solutions when or at the rates we expect, the possibility the foreign currency exchange rates may vary from our expectations and thereby affect our reported revenue and expense, the possibility that we may not achieve the license growth rates that we expect, which could result in a different mix of revenue between license, service and maintenance and could impact our EPS results, the possibility that strategic customer wins may not generate the revenue we expect, the possibility that we will experience a shortfall in revenue that causes us to decrease or eliminate planned strategic investments in our business or planned share repurchases and debt repayments, and the possibility that any strategic investments that we do make may not have the effects that we expect. In addition, our assumptions concerning our future GAAP and non-GAAP effective income tax rates are based on estimates and other factors that could change, including the geographic mix of our revenue, expenses (including restructuring charges) and profits and loans and cash repatriations from foreign subsidiaries. Other risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected are detailed from time to time in reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K and our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.
