Commenting on the Company's third quarter 2015 performance, Jim Cashman, ANSYS president & CEO stated, "The results of the third quarter demonstrate the Company's ability to execute effectively and to continuously drive growth. Despite currency headwinds and varying macroeconomic conditions around the world, our diversified business model and predictable, recurring revenue streams enabled us to produce solid top and bottom line results. Our non-GAAP earnings per share surpassed the high end of the range of our expected results for the quarter."
He continued, "As we look toward the balance of 2015 and into 2016, we could not be more excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. Our recent acquisitions of Gear Design Solutions and Delcross have further enhanced our capabilities in IoT and RF systems analysis. Adoption rates of simulation solutions across engineering disciplines will continue to grow as ease of use expands, computational ability grows and cloud solutions are adopted. ANSYS is uniquely positioned as a market leader with a comprehensive solution. We are confident that we will continue to drive shareholder value – and return capital to shareholders – while simultaneously investing in the long-term growth of our company."
