Ajei Gopal, ANSYS president & CEO, commented, “Our focus on sales execution, coupled with our world-class products, has resulted in another quarter of excellent financial performance. We surpassed the high end of our expectations for both revenue and earnings, driven by double-digit revenue growth across each of our three major geographies. We also closed the largest single-physics deal in our company history, a $49 million, multi-year lease deal in the high-tech space. In May, we released ANSYS® R2, which builds upon our industry-leading product portfolio, empowering customers to do more with multiphysics in less time, automating simulation and making it easier to use. We also expanded our partner ecosystem during Q2 – a key part of our pervasive simulation strategy – announcing new agreements with BMW and Airbus. Our results are a testament to the strength of our product portfolio and our deep customer relationships.”
Maria Shields, ANSYS CFO, stated, “Consistent execution across the board led to another quarter of excellent performance, with double-digit earnings growth and operating profit margin exceeding the high end of our guidance. Our results demonstrate that the investments we are making, combined with our operational focus, are continuing to pay off. More importantly, we have been able to achieve these results while strategically investing in our business for the long term. We remain confident in our ability to meet our targets and drive long-term growth.”
