MCAD Industry View – An August 2006 Update

ANSYS led the pack with year-over-year growth of 65%, helped of course with its mid-year acquisition of Fluent. Dassault Systems was in second place at 32% growth with Autodesk and PTC following with around 20-percent increases. ESI-Group and Moldflow had single digit declines relative to the prior year. ANSYS was also the growth leader sequentially at 36%, having completed its acquisition of Fluent. Dassault was again in second place at 17%. ESI-Group was the only firm whose earnings fell sequentially (-48%).

Figure 1 below provides a bar graph showing the revenue trend for each of the covered vendors, for the periods mentioned in Table 1.

(Excludes MSC.Software)

For the quarter Autodesk was the share leader at 33%, with Dassault and UGS fighting it out for second place at 25% and 21%, respectively (Figure 2).

(As always, it needs to be pointed out that unlike the other vendors in this report, Autodesk earns a significant percentage of its revenue outside of the MCAD space. Autodesk does not break out its mechanical contribution. Also, both Autodesk and Dassault Systemes sell mostly through third parties, while UGS sells mostly direct).

Table 2 - Quarterly earnings of G7 MCAD Vendors (US$ Millions)

As Table 2 reveals, earnings were far less impressive than revenues. As a result of an internal review of historical stock option granting practices and the related accounting, Autodesk did not release earnings data for the quarter. ANSYS had a significant loss for the quarter due mostly to a one-time charge of $28.1 million related to in-process research & development associated with the acquisition of Fluent that was completed on May 1, 2006. Dassault earnings declined due to about €12 million in acquisition-related expenses.
