PITTSBURGH, Nov. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS), today reported third quarter 2019 GAAP and non-GAAP revenue growth of 19% and 18%, respectively, or 20% and 19%, respectively, in constant currency. For the third quarter, the Company reported consistent diluted earnings per share on a GAAP basis and growth in diluted earnings per share of 8% on a non-GAAP basis.

“Once again we delivered an outstanding quarter, with double-digit ACV and revenue growth and strong operating income,” said Ajei Gopal, ANSYS President & CEO. “Our Pervasive Simulation strategy is working. With a growing market, world-class products, deep customer relationships and robust execution, we continue to make excellent progress towards our goal of $2 billion in ACV by 2022."

"Our Q3 product releases included new capabilities across our portfolio, with notable capabilities including ANSYS Autonomy, which enables engineers to develop safer autonomous vehicles, and ANSYS Minerva, a new platform that improves engineering productivity by providing simulation process and data management, process integration, and design optimization capabilities,” Mr. Gopal continued. “We were also busy with M&A: in the past week, we have closed the Q3 announced acquisition of our long-term technology partner, Livermore Software Technology Corporation, the premier provider of explicit dynamics and other advanced finite element analysis technology, and we announced and closed the acquisition of Dynardo, which will enhance ANSYS Minerva with advanced process integration and design optimization capabilities.”

Maria Shields, ANSYS CFO, stated, “Our strong Q3 revenue performance drove bottom-line results well ahead of the high end of our Q3 2019 EPS guidance, positioning ANSYS for a strong finish to 2019. In addition, deferred revenue and backlog grew to $650 million, an increase of 19% over the same period in 2018. Other financial highlights for the quarter include annual contract value (ACV) growth of 14% in constant currency and total operating cash flows of $120 million, a 9% increase compared to Q3 2018. To reflect the near-term operating strength that we see in our business, we are raising our guidance for 2019, and we remain confident in our ability to drive double-digit constant currency ACV growth and achieve our 2022 long-term targets.”

On November 1, 2019, ANSYS acquired LSTC for a purchase price of $779.9 million. The combined strengths of ANSYS and LSTC in simulation for structures, fluids, electromagnetics, optics, safety and machine learning will deliver a powerful solution for autonomous and electric vehicles to global automotive manufacturers and their suppliers.

The Company also announced and closed the acquisition of Dynardo, a leading provider of multidisciplinary analysis and optimization technology, for a purchase price of approximately €30.0 million. This acquisition gives ANSYS customers access to a full suite of process integration and robust design tools — empowering users to identify optimal product designs faster and more economically.
