Autodesk shares drop after Q2 earnings miss; fiscal 2020 guidance affirmed

Shares of Autodesk Inc. sank in after-hours trading after the company affirmed its adjusted profit guidance for fiscal 2020 and reported second-quarter core earnings that missed analysts' expectations.

The software services company expects adjusted EPS of between $2.71 and $2.90 in the fiscal year ending Jan. 31, 2020, unchanged from its previous outlook.

On a GAAP basis, Autodesk lowered its full-year EPS forecast to a range of 83 cents to $1.02, from a range of $1.12 to $1.31.

Autodesk also maintained its full-year revenue projection of $3.25 billion to $3.30 billion and free cash flow forecast of approximately $1.35 billion.

Autodesk shares were down 8.69% to $154.80 as of 5:50 p.m. ET. The stock closed the trading day 2.58% lower.

In the fiscal first quarter that ended April 30, Autodesk reported non-GAAP net income of $99.0 million, or 45 cents per share, up from $14.4 million, or 6 cents per share, a year earlier. The S&P Global Market Intelligence consensus normalized EPS estimate for the quarter was 47 cents.

Autodesk's GAAP net loss in the fiscal first quarter narrowed to $24.2 million, or 11 cents per share, from a year-ago net loss of $82.4 million, or 38 cents per share.

Quarterly revenue rose year over year to $735.5 million from $559.9 million.
