PITTSBURGH, Aug. 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ:ANSS), today announced growth in both revenue and diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2016. In constant currency, the Company reported both GAAP and non-GAAP revenue growth of 4%, with GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share growth of 15% and 9%, respectively. Recurring revenue, which is comprised of lease license and annual maintenance revenue, totaled 74% of revenue for the second quarter.
“Q2 was a very solid quarter for ANSYS on many fronts, including revenues in the upper half of our guidance range, and earnings above the high end of our range, even in light of the ongoing evolution to time-based licenses, cloud and enterprise agreements. We are encouraged by the continued progress that we are making in our sales growth initiatives across our major markets, as demonstrated by the improved performance in our business in Germany and Asia-Pacific, as well as ongoing improvements in our channel partner performance. During the quarter, we also continued to see good progress in our enterprise sales initiatives. The underlying fundamentals of our business performed in line with our expectations as evidenced by continued strong margins, recurring revenue and a new record deferred revenue and backlog balance of $524 million,” commented Jim Cashman, ANSYS President & CEO. “During the quarter, we released ANSYS® 17.1 and introduced the ANSYS SeaScapeTM platform and SeaHawkTM solution. Based on big data architecture with scalable server computation, solution times are reduced from weeks to hours, while increasing accuracy. As we committed at our recent Investor Day, we also continued to return capital to our stockholders through the repurchase of shares.”
