ASPEN TECHNOLOGY ANNOUNCES FINANCIAL RESULTS FOR THE FOURTH QUARTER AND FISCAL YEAR 2010
Aspen Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: AZPN), a leading provider of software and services to the process industries, today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2010, ended June 30, 2010.
Mark Fusco, Chief Executive Officer of AspenTech, said, "The fourth quarter was a strong finish to our fiscal year. The combination of customers moving to our new aspenONE licensing model and new and expanded usage drove record quarterly and annual product related bookings that were well above our expectations. Most important, strong growth in our customer relationships during the fourth quarter contributed to double digit full year growth in the license portion of our total contract value during fiscal 2010. This reflects the underlying growth of our business, and we are optimistic that AspenTech is well positioned to continue growing its over a billion dollar total contract value in fiscal 2011 and beyond."
Fusco added, "In addition to validating market acceptance of our new aspenONE licensing model during fiscal 2010, we also made significant progress putting in place the foundation to grow the company's subscription cash flow model. We have not sold receivables to raise cash in nearly three years and we have steadily increased the portion of our business where customers have elected annual payment terms over the course of our multi-year contracts. We believe continued execution of this strategy will lead to strong growth in our free cash flow beginning in fiscal 2011."
