ANSYS Reports Revenue and Earnings Growth for Fourth Quarter and 2008 Annual Results and Updates Outlook
Highlights

SOUTHPOINTE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 26, 2009-- ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS), a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today reported its fiscal fourth quarter and full year 2008 results.

“By staying true to our strategic vision, we validated that the fundamentals of the ANSYS business remain strong, even in the midst of the macro challenges. Our customers’ ability to innovate is essential to their future success, which in turn furthers the success of ANSYS. As a result, we continue to have a strong financial model that can drive profitable operations while ANSYS delivers on its promise to provide best in class engineering simulation,” commented ANSYS President & CEO Jim Cashman. “The fourth quarter presented us with a combination of both challenges and opportunities. ANSYS’ ability to deliver solid financial results was driven by our tight alignment with our customer’s research and product development priorities, our broad portfolio of product solutions, and solid execution by our global workforce and channel partners. While we continue to face the realities of ongoing pressure on customer capital spending and prolonged sales cycles, we are also cognizant of the need to focus on and invest in our top priorities – sales, technology innovation and the integration of Ansoft. During this past quarter, we made progress on a number of important fronts that we believe continue to position ANSYS for future long-term growth as we address the expanding needs of our diverse customer base.”

ANSYS' fourth quarter and full year 2008 financial results are presented below. The non-GAAP results exclude the income statement effects of stock-based compensation, purchase accounting for deferred revenue and acquisition-related amortization of intangible assets. Non-GAAP and GAAP results reflect:

  • Total non-GAAP revenue of $143.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2008 as compared to $111.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2007; total non-GAAP revenue of $493.0 million in 2008 as compared to $387.2 million in 2007; total GAAP revenue of $135.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2008 as compared to $111.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2007; total GAAP revenue of $478.3 million in 2008 as compared to $385.3 million in 2007;
  • A non-GAAP operating profit margin of 48.8% in the fourth quarter of 2008 as compared to 43.2% in the fourth quarter of 2007; a non-GAAP operating profit margin of 47.5% in 2008 as compared to 43.3% in 2007; a GAAP operating profit margin of 33.8% in the fourth quarter of 2008 as compared to 34.1% in the fourth quarter of 2007; a GAAP operating profit margin of 35.5% in 2008 as compared to 32.9% in 2007;

  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (see *Note below) of $0.50 in the fourth quarter of 2008 as compared to $0.44 in the fourth quarter of 2007; non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.76 in 2008 as compared to $1.34 in 2007; GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.34 in the fourth quarter of 2008 as compared to GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.36 in the fourth quarter of 2007; GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.29 in 2008 as compared to GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.02 in 2007.

* Note: The GAAP and non-GAAP net income and earnings per share data reflected above include approximately $2.0 million, or $0.02 per share, in tax benefits during the fourth quarter of 2008 related to U.S. research and development activities that occurred during the first nine months of 2008. These amounts were recorded in the fourth quarter when the U.S. government approved the related tax credits retroactive to January 1, 2008. The GAAP and non-GAAP net income and earnings per share data for 2007 include approximately $3 million, or $0.04 per share, in tax benefits during the fourth quarter of 2007, primarily related to (1) reductions in the Company’s accrual related to uncertain tax positions associated with the filing of voluntary disclosure agreements in various state taxing jurisdictions, (2) reductions in the Company’s U.S. net deferred tax liabilities associated with the merger of two U.S. legal entities, (3) a favorable adjustment to the Company’s previous estimate for taxes owed in a foreign jurisdiction as a result of the completion of the related tax filing and (4) reductions in certain deferred tax liabilities in foreign jurisdictions related to prospective income tax rate changes adopted by the foreign jurisdiction.

The Company's GAAP results reflect stock-based compensation charges of approximately $3.1 million ($2.0 million after tax) or $0.02 diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2008 and approximately $11.8 million ($8.9 million after tax) or $0.10 diluted earnings per share for 2008.

The non-GAAP financial results highlighted above, and the non-GAAP financial outlook for 2009 discussed below, represent non-GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of these measures to the appropriate GAAP measures, for the three months and twelve months ended December 31, 2008 and 2007, and for the 2009 financial outlook, is included in the condensed financial information included in this release.

Cashman continued, “Our on-going challenge will be to respond to the current market conditions without sacrificing long-term opportunity. Having demonstrated our ability to succeed, we believe our solid fourth quarter and fiscal year 2008 results continue to reflect ANSYS’ strength in the marketplace and is testimony to the fact that our engineering solutions remain a high priority investment within our expanding customer base. Throughout 2008, we managed our spending, while at the same time, investing in important future growth opportunities such as the Ansoft acquisition. We also continued to focus on strengthening the breadth and depth of our solutions and extending our technology leadership. Throughout 2009 we will continue to take steps to streamline operations, manage discretionary costs and strengthen the effectiveness of our global operations.”

Cashman concluded by saying, “Looking ahead, we are very excited about the upcoming releases of ANSYS 12.0 and Workbench 2.0 and the potential that these products have for our business. In every economic cycle that we have experienced, there are new opportunities that are created. We believe that our efforts in 2008 have positioned us with a vast array of new and improved technologies that will position us to take advantage of those new opportunities and to drive new business and increase the adoption rates of ANSYS solutions. During these challenging times, we will continue to work with our customers to help them meet or exceed their goals of reducing the number of design iterations, shortening the design cycle, lowering costs, improving product quality and expanding market share.”

Management's Remaining 2009 Financial Outlook

The Company has updated its 2009 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 purchase accounting adjustments to deferred revenue, as well as charges for stock-based compensation and acquisition-related amortization of intangible assets.

First Quarter 2009 Guidance

The Company currently expects the following for the quarter ending March 31, 2009:

GAAP revenue in the range of   $117.0 - $125.0 million
Non-GAAP revenue in the range of $122.0 - $130.0 million
GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.17- $0.25
Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.33- $0.39

Fiscal Year 2009 Guidance

The Company currently expects the following for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2009:

GAAP revenue in the range of   $522.0 - $582.0 million
Non-GAAP revenue in the range of $530.0 - $590.0 million
GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.01- $1.36
Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.54- $1.85

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. As announced on July 31, 2008, ANSYS acquired Ansoft Corporation. In accordance with the fair value provisions of EITF 01-3, "Accounting in a Business Combination for Deferred Revenue of an Acquiree," 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 has no impact on the Company's business or cash flow, it adversely impacts the Company's reported GAAP software license 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 of software and acquired technology, and 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 the 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:

GAAP REPORTING MEASURE   NON-GAAP REPORTING MEASURE
 
Revenue Non-GAAP Revenue
Operating Profit Non-GAAP Operating Profit
Operating Profit Margin Non-GAAP Operating Profit Margin
Net Income Non-GAAP Net Income
Diluted Earnings Per Share Non-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share
