ANSYS Reports Revenue and Earnings Growth for Fourth Quarter and 2008 Annual Results and Updates Outlook

The non-GAAP financial results highlighted above, and the non-GAAP financial outlook for 2009 discussed below, represent non-GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of these measures to the appropriate GAAP measures, for the three months and twelve months ended December 31, 2008 and 2007, and for the 2009 financial outlook, is included in the condensed financial information included in this release.

Cashman continued, “Our on-going challenge will be to respond to the current market conditions without sacrificing long-term opportunity. Having demonstrated our ability to succeed, we believe our solid fourth quarter and fiscal year 2008 results continue to reflect ANSYS’ strength in the marketplace and is testimony to the fact that our engineering solutions remain a high priority investment within our expanding customer base. Throughout 2008, we managed our spending, while at the same time, investing in important future growth opportunities such as the Ansoft acquisition. We also continued to focus on strengthening the breadth and depth of our solutions and extending our technology leadership. Throughout 2009 we will continue to take steps to streamline operations, manage discretionary costs and strengthen the effectiveness of our global operations.”

Cashman concluded by saying, “Looking ahead, we are very excited about the upcoming releases of ANSYS 12.0 and Workbench 2.0 and the potential that these products have for our business. In every economic cycle that we have experienced, there are new opportunities that are created. We believe that our efforts in 2008 have positioned us with a vast array of new and improved technologies that will position us to take advantage of those new opportunities and to drive new business and increase the adoption rates of ANSYS solutions. During these challenging times, we will continue to work with our customers to help them meet or exceed their goals of reducing the number of design iterations, shortening the design cycle, lowering costs, improving product quality and expanding market share.”
