Ansoft Corporation First Quarter Earnings Increase to $0.11 Per Share on Record Revenues

PITTSBURGH—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Aug. 18, 2005— Ansoft Corporation (NASDAQ: ANST) today announced financial results for its first quarter of fiscal 2006 ended July 31, 2005.

Revenue for the first quarter totaled $14.8 million, an increase of 17% compared to $12.7 million reported in the previous fiscal year's first quarter. On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the first quarter was $1.4 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, representing a 392% increase when compared to net income of $0.3 million, or $0.02 per diluted share in the previous fiscal year's first quarter. On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income for the first quarter was $1.2 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $30,000, or $0.00 per diluted share in the previous fiscal year's first quarter.

"We had an excellent first quarter with strong growth in revenues and earnings," said Nicholas Csendes, Ansoft's President and CEO. "For the balance of the fiscal year, we expect continued revenue growth of around 10-15% with earnings increasing around 25% over the last fiscal year."

Pro forma results represent non-GAAP financial measures and exclude the impact of amortization of intangible assets. A reconciliation of these amounts to the appropriate GAAP amounts, for the three months ended July 31, 2005 and 2004 is included with this press release.

Pursuant to the requirement of Regulation G, the Company has
provided a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the
most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. These measures differ
from GAAP in that they exclude the amortization of intangible assets.
The Company has provided these measurements in addition to GAAP
financial results because it believes they provide a consistent basis
for comparison between periods that is not influenced by certain
non-cash expenses and therefore are helpful to understanding the
Company's underlying operational results. These same measures are used
by management when evaluating the continuing operating results of the
Company.
