PITTSBURGH, Feb. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ:ANSS) today reported fourth quarter and FY 2015 GAAP revenue growth of 4% and 8%, respectively, and non-GAAP revenue growth of 4% and 7%, respectively, all in constant currency.  Recurring revenue, which is comprised of lease license and annual maintenance revenue, totaled 70% of non-GAAP revenue for the fourth quarter and 72% for the year.

For the quarter, the Company reported non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.91 and GAAP diluted earnings per share of$0.75. For the fiscal year, the Company achieved non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $3.42 and GAAP diluted earnings per share of $2.76.

Jim Cashman, ANSYS president & CEO, stated, “The fourth quarter presented us with a combination of both challenges and opportunities.  Our earnings surpassed the high end of our expectations, while Q4 revenue came in at the low end of our expectations. Quarterly sales bookings showed strong improvement, exceeding the revenue growth rate, and contributed to a record total deferred revenue and backlog balance of $504 million.  Operating cash flows increased 18% over Q4 2014.”

He continued, “We also continued to return capital to our stockholders through the repurchase of 1.0 million shares in the fourth quarter, bringing our total 2015 repurchase to 3.8 million shares. During the year, we focused our efforts on expanding our direct sales capacity, investing in innovation and beginning a multiple-year journey of upgrading our infrastructure to support our ongoing growth goals.  While we did not accomplish all that we set out to do at the beginning of 2015, we believe that we are very well positioned as we enter 2016.”

Cashman concluded, “We continue to strongly execute on our strategic vision to drive growth through continuous product innovation.  In January 2016, we released ANSYS® 17.0 – delivering the most comprehensive set of physics features that we’ve released in our 45-year history. We’ve improved performance by a full order of magnitude, giving 10x the productivity, 10x greater insight into product designs and 10x the performance to design and innovate more quickly and efficiently than ever.”
