“While the global environment remains challenging, our revenues were within the range of our outlook with the ANSYS organic business stable in constant currencies. Our non-GAAP earnings exceeded the upper end of the range and were further supplemented by approximately $.02 of favorable tax benefits. We continued to deliver on our stated objectives of strong operating margins and cash flows, even during a time when the exact timing of business intake patterns is difficult to predict,” stated Jim Cashman, ANSYS president and CEO.
Cashman continued, “This quarter’s results reflect our ongoing commitment to manage our business with strong discipline. At the same time, we have been able to help our customers adjust to the current climate by leveraging ANSYS technology to improve their own competitive positions with better quality, innovative products created in less time and at lower cost. While delivering on commitments, we have also continued to prepare for future growth opportunities and eventual market improvement. With the recent commercial release of ANSYS® 12.0 and ANSYS WorkbenchTM 2.0, and upcoming releases of our AnsoftTM suite of products, we are excited about the strength of our product portfolio and believe that we are well-positioned to continue delivering long-term value to our customers and our stockholders.”

The non-GAAP results exclude the income statement effects of stock-based compensation and acquisition-related amortization of intangible assets.

Excluding these items, the Company’s non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009, would have been $0.41 and $0.79, respectively.
