Autodesk's Software Sales Soar in China

Autodesk said that its software sales in China were growing at about three times the rate of its worldwide sales as it considered expanding its year-old Shanghai research and development laboratory. The company's sales in China doubled in the first half of this year from a year before. That growth rate outpaced overall sales, which rose about 35 percent to $499 million for the six months through July 31.
