"ANSYS' first quarter results are an excellent start to 2011 and represent early momentum from the focus and investments in 2010," commented Jim Cashman, ANSYS President and CEO.   "During the first quarter of 2011, all major metrics of the business showed continued improvement, highlighted by revenues and earnings that were above our guidance, a record deferred revenue balance of $236.4 million, and all time high cash flows from operations."

"We also saw improvement in the UK and North America markets over last quarter and, most notably, our Japan team delivered a very strong contribution to our first quarter results. We are extremely proud of their continued dedication and ongoing efforts in the face of such extraordinary circumstances.  Supporting our Japanese employees and customers as they focus on rebuilding will be a new and important priority as we look into the remainder of 2011.  Despite the various political turmoil and macroeconomic concerns, our diversified global reach, our resilient business model and our technological leadership continue to drive customer engagements. With the growing need for energy efficiency, stricter environmental and regulatory mandates, and ever-increasing consumer expectations, our customers are increasingly using simulation to enable innovation and value creation. These increasing business pressures, coupled with the dedication and efforts of our global team, have continued to enable us to deliver on our commitments," stated Mr. Cashman.

ANSYS' first quarter financial results are presented below. The non-GAAP results exclude the income statement effects of stock-based compensation and acquisition-related amortization of intangible assets.  GAAP and non-GAAP results reflect:

  • Total GAAP and non-GAAP revenue of $158.0 million in the first quarter of 2011 as compared to total GAAP and non-GAAP revenue of $136.1 million in the first quarter of 2010;
  • A GAAP operating profit margin of 39.4% in the first quarter of 2011 as compared to 36.5% in the first quarter of 2010; a non-GAAP operating profit margin of 49.9% in the first quarter of 2011 as compared to 48.7% in the first quarter of 2010;
  • GAAP net income of $42.2 million in the first quarter of 2011 as compared to GAAP net income of $32.4 million in the first quarter of 2010; non-GAAP net income of $53.5 million in the first quarter of 2011 as compared to $43.5 million in the first quarter of 2010; and
  • GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.45 in the first quarter of 2011 as compared to GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.35 in the first quarter of 2010; non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.57 in the first quarter of 2011 as compared to $0.47 in the first quarter of 2010.

The Company's GAAP results reflect stock-based compensation charges of approximately $5.1 million ($4.0 million after tax) or $0.04 diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2011.

The non-GAAP financial results highlighted above, and the non-GAAP financial outlook for 2011 discussed below, represent non-GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations of these measures to the appropriate GAAP measures for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010, and for the 2011 financial outlook, are included in the condensed financial information included in this release.

During the first quarter of 2011, the Company repurchased 247,443 shares of stock at an average price of $51.34.  The Company currently has approximately 1.1 million shares remaining in its authorized repurchase program.

Management's Remaining 2011 Financial Outlook

The Company has provided its 2011 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.

Second Quarter and Fiscal Year 2011 Guidance

The Company currently expects the following for the quarter ending June 30, 2011:

  • Revenue in the range of $155 - $161 million
  • GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.41 - $0.46
