  • Restructuring News
    • Autodesk announced a restructuring plan to focus on the company's strategic priorities of completing the subscription transition; digitizing the company; and re-imagining manufacturing, construction, and production. By realigning its investments, Autodesk is positioning itself to meet its long-term goals, including keeping non-GAAP spend flat in fiscal 2019. The company anticipates taking a pre-tax restructuring charge in the range of $135 million to $149 million. Approximately $91 million to $100 million in pre-tax charges will be taken in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. The remaining charge will be taken in fiscal 2019.
    • 'As we enter the growth phase of our model transition, we need to re-balance investments to focus on our strategic priorities. This includes divesting from some areas and increasing our investment in others. We're taking this restructuring action from a position of strength. This is not a cost reduction activity as we maintain our commitment to keep total non-GAAP spend flat this year and next'.
