ANSYS Delivers Record Revenue and Earnings for the First Quarter 2012
Management Reiterates FY 2012 Guidance
ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS), today announced growth in both revenue and diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2012. Total GAAP revenue increased by 17.3% over the first quarter of 2011 while total non-GAAP revenue increased by 18.6% over the first quarter of 2011. GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share increased 7.8% and 6.7%, respectively, over the first quarter of 2011, while non-GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share increased 17.7% and 15.8%, respectively. The growth in the first quarter was spread across all major geographic regions and among a broad array of industries.
"ANSYS is off to a strong start in 2012, as evidenced by our first quarter results. These results reflect the impact of the persistent dedication and efforts of the global ANSYS team and demonstrate our continued progress in executing on our long-term vision," stated Jim Cashman, ANSYS President & CEO. "We entered into the year with momentum, and we continue to be pleased with the combined financial performance and the integration progress of the Apache business. The results of the first quarter of 2012 are highlighted by a record deferred revenue balance of $299.4 million, strong margins and cash flows, non-GAAP earnings in the upper end of our guidance range, major account expansion and continued growth of all major product lines. We also saw a 39% increase in our non-GAAP lease revenue for Q1 2012 as compared to Q1 2011, which is largely indicative of the influence of the Apache license model combined with the impact of some customers shifting their purchasing decisions to our annual lease offering. While the growth in our lease business does affect short-term license revenue growth, it also contributes to the deferred revenue balance and helps to build our recurring revenue base. While we continued to meet or exceed on a number of key financial metrics, we also see opportunities for focus and execution improvement. As 2012 continues to unfold, we believe we are well positioned to invest and capitalize on the global market opportunities for growth, leveraging our extensive customer base and technological leadership position to drive results and continue to deliver on our commitments."
