Aspen Technology Announces Financial Results for the
First Quarter of Fiscal 2019

Bedford, Mass. - October 24, 2018
- Aspen Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: AZPN), the asset optimization software company, today announced financial results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2019 ended September 30, 2018.

“We are pleased with our first quarter performance, which was highlighted by 8% year-over-year annual spend growth driven by solid performance across the company in each major geography and product suite. We are benefiting from broadening signs of demand among Engineering & Construction customers, in addition to continued positive trends among owner-operator customers,” said Antonio Pietri, President and Chief Executive Officer of AspenTech.

Pietri continued, “We are also pleased with the progress in our APM business. We are seeing growing market recognition of the technical superiority of our product offering, which is helping drive customer wins in our core verticals and the Global Economy Industries. APM represents an exciting, and sizable, growth opportunity in the early days of a market where we believe we are well positioned to win.”

Pietri concluded, “We continue to execute on our strategic priorities while also delivering high levels of profitability and free cash flow on an annual basis. As a reminder, now that we have adopted Topic 606, we will experience significant variability on our income statement, due to the timing of renewals and the fact that a significant amount of license revenue is now recognized up front instead of ratably. However, the fundamental business drivers and the value we provide customers have not changed under Topic 606.”

First Quarter Fiscal 2019 and Recent Business Highlights

All results for the first fiscal quarter of 2019 and the comparable periods are presented under ASC Topic 606, which the company adopted on July 1st, 2018. As a reminder, AspenTech’s income statement results are impacted by the adoption of Topic 606, which impacts both the timing and method of revenue recognition for term license contracts.

Annual spend, which the company defines as the annualized value of all term license and maintenance contracts at the end of the quarter, was approximately $498 million at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2019, which increased 8.1% compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2018 and 1.9% sequentially.

AspenTech repurchased approximately 473,000 shares of its common stock for $50.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2019.
