We closed a solid first half of the year with a very strong second quarter as revenue, billings, earnings, and free cash flow came in ahead of expectations, said Andrew Anagnost, Autodesk president and CEO. ARR grew to a record $3.1 billion, driven by all parts of the business. Construction demonstrated continued strength with wins across all parts of the portfolio, and Fusion 360 – our design-to-manufacturing platform – continued to build momentum. We also made further strides in capturing opportunities within our non-paying user base. In an environment of increasing uncertainty, we believe we are well-positioned to achieve our FY23 goals.

Our strong performance during the second quarter helped us achieve two milestones, said Scott Herren, Autodesk CFO. First, we drove our largest quarterly non-GAAP net income to date, followed by a record setting last twelve months free cash flow of $731 million. While we continue to execute well and are not materially impacted by current trade tensions and macro uncertainty, we are taking a prudent stance to our second half fiscal 2020 outlook. Despite these near-term headwinds, our recurring revenue model is much more resilient than in prior cycles.
