Highlights

  • Revenue of $137.8 million, an 11% increase over Q2 2009, or 12% in constant currency
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.50 and GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.38
  • Operating cash flows of $60.2 million, a 38% increase over Q2 2009

PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS), today announced in-line performance against its outlook in revenue and over-performance in non-GAAP EPS for the second quarter of 2010. Double digit revenue growth in the second quarter continued to be spread across all major geographic regions, all major product lines and a broad array of industries. Solid top line performance translated to strong margins and 16% non-GAAP earnings per share growth in the second quarter.

"This quarter's results continue to reflect the improved business momentum that we have seen over the last few quarters, in spite of the greater than anticipated negative currency effects, due mostly to the volatility of the Euro. Overall, our business performed well on both the license and maintenance fronts, with a positive contribution from all major geographies. We strengthened our balance sheet, reduced our overall debt and our deferred revenue balance increased to an all time high," stated Jim Cashman, ANSYS president and CEO. "We are encouraged by our first half performance, despite pockets of uncertainty that remain in the global business climate. We also continue to validate our belief about the future potential of simulation through our customers' continued adoption of the ANSYS simulation suite to transform their product design processes, taking advantage of the strength of our broad physics portfolio to drive innovation, efficiencies and productivity gains."

ANSYS' second quarter financial results are presented below. The 2010 and 2009 non-GAAP results exclude the income statement effects of stock-based compensation and acquisition-related amortization of intangible assets. The 2009 non-GAAP results also exclude the impact of purchase accounting adjustments to deferred revenue. Non-GAAP and GAAP results reflect:

 -- Total non-GAAP revenue of $137.8 million in the second quarter of 2010 as compared to $124.2 million in the second quarter of 2009; total non-GAAP revenue of $273.8 million in the first six months of 2010 as compared to $245.6 million in the first six months of 2009; total GAAP revenue of $137.8 million in the second quarter of 2010 as compared to $122.0 million in the second quarter of 2009; total GAAP revenue of $273.8 million in the first six months of 2010 as compared to $238.3 million in the first six months of 2009; -- A non-GAAP operating profit margin of 50.2% in the second quarter of 2010 as compared to 47.3% in the second quarter of 2009; a non-GAAP operating profit margin of 49.4% in the first six months of 2010 as compared to 46.7% in the first six months of 2009; a GAAP operating profit margin of 38.0% in the second quarter of 2010 as compared to 33.3% in the second quarter of 2009; a GAAP operating profit margin of 37.3% in the first six months of 2010 as compared to 31.7% in the first six months of 2009; -- Non-GAAP net income of $46.6 million in the second quarter of 2010 as compared to $38.9 million in the second quarter of 2009; non-GAAP net income of $90.1 million in the first six months of 2010 as compared to $73.4 million in the first six months of 2009; GAAP net income of $35.5 million in the second quarter of 2010 as compared to $27.1 million in the second quarter of 2009; GAAP net income of $67.9 million in the first six months of 2010 as compared to $48.2 million in the first six months of 2009; and -- Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.50 in the second quarter of 2010 as compared to $0.43 in the second quarter of 2009; non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.97 in the first six months of 2010 as compared to $0.80 in the first six months of 2009; GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.38 in the second quarter of 2010 as compared to $0.30 in the second quarter of 2009; GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.73 in the first six months of 2010 as compared to $0.53 in the first six months of 2009. 

The Company's GAAP results reflect stock-based compensation charges of approximately $4.7 million ($3.6 million after tax) or $0.04 diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2010 and approximately $9.2 million ($7.2 million after tax) or $0.08 diluted earnings per share for the first six months of 2010. The non-GAAP financial results highlighted above, and the non-GAAP financial outlook for 2010 discussed below, represent non-GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations of these measures to the appropriate GAAP measures, for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, and for the 2010 financial outlook, are included in the condensed financial information included in this release.

Management's Remaining 2010 Financial Outlook

The Company has provided its 2010 revenue and earnings per share guidance below. The earnings per share guidance is provided on both a GAAP basis and a non-GAAP basis. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share excludes charges for stock-based compensation and acquisition-related amortization of intangible assets.

Third Quarter and Fiscal Year 2010 Guidance

The Company currently expects the following for the quarter ending September 30, 2010:

 -- Revenue in the range of $137.0 - $142.0 million -- GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.34 - $0.37 -- Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.46 - $0.49

The Company currently expects the following for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2010:

 -- Revenue in the range of $565 - $580 million -- GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.47 - $1.55 -- Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.95 - $2.03

These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially. ANSYS is unable to predict the likely duration and severity of the current disruption in the domestic and global economies. Should these economic conditions continue to deteriorate further, it could result in ANSYS not meeting the guidance provided above and ANSYS' operating results and financial performance could be adversely affected. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share is a supplemental financial measure and should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, diluted earnings per share determined in accordance with GAAP.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

The Company provides non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating profit margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share as supplemental measures to GAAP regarding the Company's operational performance. These financial measures exclude the impact of certain items and, therefore, have not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. A detailed explanation of each of the adjustments to such financial measures is described below. This press release also contains a reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to its most comparable GAAP financial measure.

Management uses non-GAAP financial measures (a) to evaluate the Company's historical and prospective financial performance as well as its performance relative to its competitors, (b) to set internal sales targets and spending budgets, (c) to allocate resources, (d) to measure operational profitability and the accuracy of forecasting, (e) to assess financial discipline over operational expenditures and (f) as an important factor in determining variable compensation for management and its employees. In addition, many financial analysts that follow our Company focus on and publish both historical results and future projections based on non-GAAP financial measures. We believe that it is in the best interest of our investors to provide this information to analysts so that they accurately report the non-GAAP financial information. Moreover, investors have historically requested and the Company has historically reported these non-GAAP financial measures as a means of providing consistent and comparable information with past reports of financial results.

While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors, there are limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, are not reported by all of the Company's competitors and may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures of the Company's competitors due to potential differences in the exact method of calculation. The Company compensates for these limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by reviewing the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures.

The adjustments to these non-GAAP financial measures, and the basis for such adjustments, are outlined below:

Purchase accounting for deferred revenue and its related tax impact. ANSYS acquired Ansoft Corporation on July 31, 2008. In accordance with the fair value provisions applicable to the accounting for business combinations, acquired deferred revenue of approximately $7.5 million was recorded on the opening balance sheet, which was approximately $23.5 million lower than the historical carrying value. Although this purchase accounting requirement had no impact on the Company's business or cash flow, it adversely impacted the Company's reported GAAP revenue primarily for the first twelve months post-acquisition. In order to provide investors with financial information that facilitates comparison of both historical and future results, the Company has provided non-GAAP financial measures which exclude the impact of the purchase accounting adjustment. The Company believes that this non-GAAP financial adjustment is useful to investors because it allows investors to (a) evaluate the effectiveness of the methodology and information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and (b) to compare past and future reports of financial results of the Company as the revenue reduction related to acquired deferred revenue will not recur when related annual lease licenses and software maintenance contracts are renewed in future periods.

Amortization of intangibles from acquisitions and its related tax impact. The Company incurs amortization of intangibles, included in its GAAP presentation of amortization expense, related to various acquisitions it has made in recent years. Management excludes these expenses and their related tax impact for the purpose of calculating non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating profit margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share when it evaluates the continuing operational performance of the Company because these costs are fixed at the time of an acquisition, are then amortized over a period of several years after the acquisition and generally cannot be changed or influenced by management after the acquisition. Accordingly, management does not consider these expenses for purposes of evaluating the performance of the Company during the applicable time period after the acquisition, and it excludes such expenses when making decisions to allocate resources. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow investors to (a) evaluate the effectiveness of the methodology and information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and (b) compare past reports of financial results of the Company as the Company has historically reported these non-GAAP financial measures.

Stock-based compensation expense and its related tax impact. The Company incurs expense related to stock-based compensation included in its GAAP presentation of cost of software licenses, cost of maintenance and service, research and development expense and selling, general and administrative expense. Although stock-based compensation is an expense of the Company and viewed as a form of compensation, management excludes these expenses for the purpose of calculating non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating profit margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share when it evaluates the continuing operational performance of the Company. Specifically, the Company excludes stock-based compensation during its annual budgeting process and its quarterly and annual assessments of the Company's and management's performance. The annual budgeting process is the primary mechanism whereby the Company allocates resources to various initiatives and operational requirements. Additionally, the annual review by the board of directors during which it compares the Company's historical business model and profitability as it relates to the planned business model and profitability for the forthcoming year excludes the impact of stock-based compensation. In evaluating the performance of senior management and department managers, charges related to stock-based compensation are excluded from expenditure and profitability results. In fact, the Company records stock-based compensation expense into a stand-alone cost center for which no single operational manager is responsible or accountable. In this way, management is able to review on a period-to-period basis each manager's performance and assess financial discipline over operational expenditures without the effect of stock-based compensation. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow investors to (a) evaluate the Company's operating results and the effectiveness of the methodology used by management to review the Company's operating results, and (b) review historical comparability in its financial reporting, as well as comparability with competitors' operating results.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. The Company's non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP financial measures, and should be read only in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as listed below:
