PITTSBURGH, Feb. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ:ANSS) today reported fourth quarter and FY 2015 GAAP revenue growth of 4% and 8%, respectively, and non-GAAP revenue growth of 4% and 7%, respectively, all in constant currency.  Recurring revenue, which is comprised of lease license and annual maintenance revenue, totaled 70% of non-GAAP revenue for the fourth quarter and 72% for the year.

For the quarter, the Company reported non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.91 and GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.75. For the fiscal year, the Company achieved non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $3.42 and GAAP diluted earnings per share of $2.76.

Jim Cashman, ANSYS president & CEO, stated, “The fourth quarter presented us with a combination of both challenges and opportunities.  Our earnings surpassed the high end of our expectations, while Q4 revenue came in at the low end of our expectations. Quarterly sales bookings showed strong improvement, exceeding the revenue growth rate, and contributed to a record total deferred revenue and backlog balance of $504 million.  Operating cash flows increased 18% over Q4 2014.”

He continued, “We also continued to return capital to our stockholders through the repurchase of 1.0 million shares in the fourth quarter, bringing our total 2015 repurchase to 3.8 million shares. During the year, we focused our efforts on expanding our direct sales capacity, investing in innovation and beginning a multiple-year journey of upgrading our infrastructure to support our ongoing growth goals.  While we did not accomplish all that we set out to do at the beginning of 2015, we believe that we are very well positioned as we enter 2016.”

Cashman concluded, “We continue to strongly execute on our strategic vision to drive growth through continuous product innovation.  In January 2016, we released ANSYS® 17.0 - delivering the most comprehensive set of physics features that we’ve released in our 45-year history. We’ve improved performance by a full order of magnitude, giving 10x the productivity, 10x greater insight into product designs and 10x the performance to design and innovate more quickly and efficiently than ever.”  

ANSYS' fourth quarter and 2015 financial results are presented below. The 2015 and 2014 non-GAAP results exclude the income statement effects of acquisition accounting adjustments to deferred revenue, as well as the impact of stock-based compensation, acquisition-related amortization of intangible assets acquired in business combinations and transaction costs related to business combinations.

The Company's GAAP results reflect stock-based compensation charges of approximately $8.2 million ($5.0 million after tax) or $0.06 diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2015 and approximately $34.0 million ($22.3 million after tax) or $0.24 diluted earnings per share for fiscal year 2015. 

The non-GAAP financial results highlighted above, and the non-GAAP financial outlook for 2016 discussed below, represent non-GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations of these measures to the appropriate GAAP measures for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, and for the 2016 financial outlook, are included in the condensed financial information included in this release.

Constant Currency

In the discussion above, the Company makes reference to revenue growth rates in constant currency.  Constant currency amounts exclude the effects of foreign currency fluctuations on the reported results.  To present this information, the results for 2015 for entities whose functional currency is a currency other than the U.S. Dollar were converted to U.S. Dollars at rates that were in effect for 2014, rather than the actual exchange rates in effect for 2015.

Information Regarding Increased Share Repurchase Authorization

During fiscal year 2015, the Company repurchased 3.8 million shares, including 1.0 million shares repurchased during the quarter ended December 31, 2015, leaving 2.1 million shares available for repurchase under the existing authorization. Today, the Company announced that the Board of Directors has again increased the authorized share repurchase program to 5.0 million shares.

2016 Financial Outlook

The Company’s first quarter and fiscal year 2016 revenue and earnings per share guidance is provided below. The Company last provided its guidance on November 5, 2015.  The previously provided fiscal year 2016 guidance has been updated to reflect changes in currency exchange rates and to consider the recent increases in economic uncertainty and market volatility.  The revenue and earnings per share guidance is provided on both a GAAP basis and a non-GAAP basis.  Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share excludes charges for stock-based compensation, the income statement effects of acquisition accounting for deferred revenue, acquisition-related amortization of intangible assets and transaction expenses related to business combinations.

First Quarter 2016 Guidance

The Company currently expects the following for the quarter ending March 31, 2016:

  • GAAP revenue in the range of $224.0 - $232.0 million  
  • Non-GAAP revenue in the range of $224.0 - $232.0 million
  • GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.57 - $0.62
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.74 - $0.77

Fiscal Year 2016 Guidance

The Company currently expects the following for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2016:

  • GAAP revenue in the range of $995.0 - $1,030 million ($1.03 billion)
  • Non-GAAP revenue in the range of $995.0 million - $1,030 million ($1.03 billion)
  • GAAP diluted earnings per share of $2.86 - $3.05 
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $3.53 - $3.69 

These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially.  Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share is a supplemental financial measure and should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, diluted earnings per share determined in accordance with GAAP.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

The Company provides non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating profit margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share as supplemental measures to GAAP regarding the Company's operational performance. These financial measures exclude the impact of certain items and, therefore, have not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. A detailed explanation of each of the adjustments to such financial measures is described below. This press release also contains a reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to its most comparable GAAP financial measure.

Management uses non-GAAP financial measures (a) to evaluate the Company's historical and prospective financial performance as well as its performance relative to its competitors, (b) to set internal sales targets and spending budgets, (c) to allocate resources, (d) to measure operational profitability and the accuracy of forecasting, (e) to assess financial discipline over operational expenditures and (f) as an important factor in determining variable compensation for management and its employees. In addition, many financial analysts that follow the Company focus on and publish both historical results and future projections based on non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes that it is in the best interest of its investors to provide this information to analysts so that they accurately report the non-GAAP financial information. Moreover, investors have historically requested, and the Company has historically reported, these non-GAAP financial measures as a means of providing consistent and comparable information with past reports of financial results.

While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors, there are limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, are not reported by all of the Company's competitors and may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures of the Company's competitors due to potential differences in the exact method of calculation. The Company compensates for these limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by reviewing the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures.

The adjustments to these non-GAAP financial measures, and the basis for such adjustments, are outlined below:

Acquisition accounting for deferred revenue and its related tax impact. Historically, the Company has consummated acquisitions in order to support its strategic and other business objectives.  In accordance with the fair value provisions applicable to the accounting for business combinations, acquired deferred revenue is often recorded on the opening balance sheet at an amount that is lower than the historical carrying value.  Although this acquisition accounting requirement has no impact on the Company's business or cash flow, it adversely impacts the Company's reported GAAP revenue in the reporting periods following an acquisition. In order to provide investors with financial information that facilitates comparison of both historical and future results, the Company provides non-GAAP financial measures which exclude the impact of the acquisition accounting adjustment. The Company believes that this non-GAAP financial adjustment is useful to investors because it allows investors to (a) evaluate the effectiveness of the methodology and information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and (b) compare past and future reports of financial results of the Company as the revenue reduction related to acquired deferred revenue will not recur when related annual lease licenses and software maintenance contracts are renewed in future periods. 

Amortization of intangible assets from acquisitions and its related tax impact. The Company incurs amortization of intangible assets, included in its GAAP presentation of amortization expense, related to various acquisitions it has made. Management excludes these expenses and their related tax impact for the purpose of calculating non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating profit margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share when it evaluates the continuing operational performance of the Company because these costs are fixed at the time of an acquisition, are then amortized over a period of several years after the acquisition and generally cannot be changed or influenced by management after the acquisition. Accordingly, management does not consider these expenses for purposes of evaluating the performance of the Company during the applicable time period after the acquisition, and it excludes such expenses when making decisions to allocate resources. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow investors to (a) evaluate the effectiveness of the methodology and information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and (b) compare past reports of financial results of the Company as the Company has historically reported these non-GAAP financial measures.

Stock-based compensation expense and its related tax impact. The Company incurs expense related to stock-based compensation included in its GAAP presentation of cost of software licenses; cost of maintenance and service; research and development expense; and selling, general and administrative expense. Although stock-based compensation is an expense of the Company and viewed as a form of compensation, management excludes these expenses for the purpose of calculating non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating profit margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share when it evaluates the continuing operational performance of the Company. Specifically, the Company excludes stock-based compensation during its annual budgeting process and its quarterly and annual assessments of the Company's and management's performance. The annual budgeting process is the primary mechanism whereby the Company allocates resources to various initiatives and operational requirements. Additionally, the annual review by the board of directors during which it compares the Company's historical business model and profitability to the planned business model and profitability for the forthcoming year excludes the impact of stock-based compensation. In evaluating the performance of senior management and department managers, charges related to stock-based compensation are excluded from expenditure and profitability results.  In fact, the Company records stock-based compensation expense into a stand-alone cost center for which no single operational manager is responsible or accountable.  In this way, management is able to review, on a period-to-period basis, each manager's performance and assess financial discipline over operational expenditures without the effect of stock-based compensation. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow investors to (a) evaluate the Company's operating results and the effectiveness of the methodology used by management to review the Company's operating results, and (b) review historical comparability in the Company’s financial reporting, as well as comparability with competitors' operating results.

Transaction costs related to business combinations.  The Company incurs expenses for professional services rendered in connection with business combinations, which are included in its GAAP presentation of selling, general and administrative expense.  These expenses are generally not tax-deductible.  Management excludes these acquisition-related transaction expenses for the purpose of calculating non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating profit margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share when it evaluates the continuing operational performance of the Company, as it generally would not have otherwise incurred these expenses in the periods presented as a part of its continuing operations.  The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow investors to (a) evaluate the Company's operating results and the effectiveness of the methodology used by management to review the Company's operating results, and (b) review historical comparability in the Company’s financial reporting as well as comparability with competitors' operating results.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for GAAP. The Company's non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP financial measures, and should be read only in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as listed below:
