PTC Profit Tops Estimates; Cuts FY Guidance

Software maker PTC Inc (PTC) on Wednesday reported second-quarter net earnings of $5.4 million or $0.05 per share compared with $43.8 million or $0.36 per share last year.

Results for the quarter included restructuring charges of $38.5 million, among other items.

Excluding items, adjusted earnings for the quarter were $0.53 per share compared with $0.48 per share a year ago.

PTC, which is cutting jobs, said its revenues for the quarter fell 4% to $314.1 million from $328.7 million in the prior year.

Adjusted revenues for the quarter totaled $315.3 million.

Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters estimated earnings of $0.47 per share on revenues of $315 million for the quarter. Analysts' estimates typically exclude special items.
