Revenue from Flagship products was $328 million, a decrease of 1 percent compared to the fourth quarter last year. Revenue from Suites was $189 million, an increase of 17 percent compared to the fourth quarter last year. Revenue from New and Adjacent products was $90 million, a decrease of 10 percent compared to the fourth quarter last year.
Fourth quarter results included a one-time benefit of approximately $24 million in revenue related to a promotion that was run in advance of an increase in upgrade pricing.
Deferred revenue at the end of the fourth quarter was a record high of $835 million, an increase of 16 percent compared to the fourth quarter last year.
“We achieved strong non-GAAP operating margin expansion in the fourth quarter and the fiscal year, driven by revenue growth and our ongoing focus on cost controls while continuing to make key investments in our business,” said Mark Hawkins, Autodesk executive vice president and CFO. "Our balance sheet remains exceptionally strong as maintenance billings contributed to a record deferred revenue balance. During the fourth quarter, we also raised $750 million in our debt IPO, strengthening our domestic cash balance and providing Autodesk with greater financial flexibility.”
The following statements are forward-looking statements that are based on current expectations and assumptions, and involve risks and uncertainties some of which are set forth below. Autodesk's business outlook for the first quarter and full year fiscal 2014 assumes, among other things, a continuation of the current economic environment and foreign exchange currency rate environment, and interest expense related to Autodesk's $750 million debt offering in December 2012.

Full Year Fiscal 2014
Net revenue for fiscal 2014 is expected to increase by approximately 6 percent compared to fiscal 2013. Autodesk anticipates fiscal 2014 GAAP operating margin to increase approximately 455 to 480 basis points and non-GAAP operating margin to increase approximately 125 to 150 basis points compared to fiscal 2013. A reconciliation between the GAAP and non-GAAP estimates for fiscal 2014 is provided in the tables following this press release.
Both first quarter fiscal 2014 and full year fiscal 2014 outlooks assume annual effective tax rates of approximately 24.5 percent and approximately 25.5 percent for GAAP and non-GAAP results, respectively. These rates do not include one-time discrete items but do reflect the recently enacted extension of the federal R&D tax credit benefit through December 31, 2013.
