Let’s see how things have shaped up for the upcoming announcement.

Factors to Conside

Autodesk’s fiscal second-quarter results are likely to benefit from solid growth in subscription revenues and healthy uptake of maintenance-to-subscription (M2S) program. Continued momentum in new customer billings and steady renewals are expected to have aided top-line growth.

Synergies from the acquisition of Upchain and Innovyze are expected to act as tailwinds. Innovyze is a leader in water infrastructure software, which strengthens Autodesk’s position in the end-to-end water infrastructure solutions’ space. Upchain is a Toronto-based provider of cloud-based product data management (“PDM”) and product lifecycle management (“PLM”) software solutions.

Solid uptake of AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT product family is expected to have favored the company’s fiscal second-quarter performance.

Autodesk Construction Cloud has been gaining significant traction with owners, general contractors and subcontractors across the construction industry, which is anticipated to have favored the top line performance.

Incremental gains from Autodesk Build, a new project and field management solution and part of Autodesk Construction Cloud is also expected to have contributed to the top line. Autodesk Build combines best-in-class features from BIM 360 and PlanGrid and adds powerful new functionalities to make information available across the entire construction team immediately.

In Jul 2021, Autodesk announced that Autodesk Build, was leveraged by 8,000 active customer projects worldwide. The solution was made available in February 2021.

The international expansion of BuildingConnected, a construction management offering that centralizes and streamlines the bidding process as well as comprises the Autodesk Construction Cloud builders network, is likely to have positively contributed to top-line growth in fiscal second quarter.

During the quarter, Autodesk announced the commercial availability of Autodesk Tandem. Autodesk Tandem is the company’s cloud-powered digital twin technology platform and is designed mainly for architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) firms.

Muted growth in Maintenance revenues owing to continued migration of maintenance plan to subscriptions might have negatively impacted top-line performance.
