PITTSBURGH, May 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS), today reported first quarter 2019 GAAP and non-GAAP revenue growth of 12% and 13%, respectively, or 15% and 16%, respectively, in constant currency. For the first quarter, the Company reported growth in diluted earnings per share of 3% and 8% on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis, respectively.

“We’re off to an excellent start to 2019, delivering double-digit growth in both software license and total revenue. The ANSYS strategy is working. Driven by our vision of Pervasive SimulationTM, the strength of our portfolio and our excellent relationships with customers, we continue to see tremendous demand for our products and solutions,” said Ajei Gopal, ANSYS President and CEO.

“Q1 also saw the introduction of new capabilities across our entire line of products, including a new ANSYS Cloud offering, which allows customers to easily and instantaneously access on-demand, cloud-based high-performance computing directly from ANSYS’ flagship products. In addition, as previously announced, we continued to invest in expanding our multi-physics product portfolio capabilities and employee talent, acquiring Granta Design and Helic. Both Granta and Helic have been successfully integrated and are operating efficiently within the ANSYS platform. And, I am excited that we announced today the addition of DfR Solutions, a market leader in designer-level electronics reliability assessment software.  With the proliferation of electronic components across products, it is critical for companies in nearly every industry to ensure the reliability of their electronics.  DfR’s Sherlock solution, coupled with the robust reliability, accuracy and speed of our flagship solutions, will allow our customers to reduce their design cycle times and boost their products’ reliability and performance,” Gopal added.

Maria Shields, ANSYS CFO, stated, “The underlying fundamentals of our business performed at or above the high end of our expectations, as evidenced by our first quarter revenue, deferred revenue and backlog, and cash flows.  Earnings were also very strong for the quarter, and our operating margin was above the high end of our guidance, driven by the over-performance in revenues. As a result of our solid performance in Q1, combined with our growing business momentum, we are raising our full-year 2019 guidance.”
