PITTSBURGH, Aug. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS), today reported second quarter 2022 GAAP and non-GAAP revenue growth of 6% and 5% in reported currency, respectively, or 13% and 12% in constant currency, respectively, when compared to the second quarter of 2021. For the second quarter of 2022, the Company reported diluted earnings per share of $1.13 and $1.77 on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis, respectively, compared to $1.06 and $1.85 on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis, respectively, for the second quarter of 2021. Additionally, the Company reported second quarter 2022 ACV growth of 7% in reported currency, or 13% in constant currency, when compared to the second quarter of 2021.

“Ansys delivered another excellent quarter, once again exceeding our financial guidance across all key metrics. We delivered double-digit ACV and revenue growth in constant currency in both the second quarter and for the first half of 2022. Our strong performance year-to-date was broad-based across geographies and industries, highlighting how our diversified multiphysics product portfolio is crucial to customers’ key research and development initiatives. I am excited about the future and look forward to discussing our continued momentum, long-term strategy and outlook at our investor update next week,” said Ajei Gopal, Ansys president and CEO.

Nicole Anasenes, Ansys CFO, stated, “Our outstanding performance was highlighted by 13% ACV growth in constant currency for the second quarter. This consistent and robust performance of double-digit topline growth is a testament to the strength and resilience of our core business and the value we deliver to our customers. Looking toward the second half of 2022, we are raising our full-year guidance on ACV and revenue in constant currency. Given the continued strong demand for simulation, coupled with the momentum across our business, I am more confident than ever in our future.”

/ Financial Results

Ansys' second quarter and year-to-date (YTD) 2022 and 2021 financial results are presented below. The 2022 and 2021 non-GAAP results exclude the income statement effects of the acquisition accounting adjustments to deferred revenue from business combinations closed prior to 2022, stock-based compensation, excess payroll taxes related to stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, expenses related to business combinations and adjustments for the income tax effect of the excluded items.

ACV is a metric the Company uses to better understand the business. There is no GAAP measure comparable to ACV. ACV is composed of the following:

  • the annualized value of maintenance and subscription lease contracts with start dates or anniversary dates during the period, plus
  • the value of perpetual license contracts with start dates during the period, plus
  • the annualized value of fixed-term services contracts with start dates or anniversary dates during the period, plus
  • the value of work performed during the period on fixed-deliverable services contracts.

/ Management's 2022 Financial Outlook

The Company's third quarter and updated FY 2022 revenue, diluted earnings per share and ACV guidance is provided below. The Company is also updating its FY 2022 guidance for operating cash flows. The revenue and diluted earnings per share guidance is provided on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis. Non-GAAP financial measures exclude the income statement effects of acquisition adjustments to deferred revenue, stock-based compensation, excess payroll taxes related to stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related expenses and adjustments for the income tax effect of the excluded items.

This guidance is based on the Company's evaluation of factual information it has determined to be relevant and the application of certain assumptions made by the Company. Please refer to the Company's prepared remarks document for additional information regarding the Company's financial guidance, including its assumptions regarding overall business dynamics.

/ Third Quarter 2022 Guidance

The Company currently expects the following for the quarter ending September 30, 2022:

(in millions, except percentages and per share data) GAAP   Non-GAAP
Revenue $453.8 - $473.8    $455.0 - $475.0
Revenue Growth Rate  2.9 7.4 %    2.1 6.6 %
Revenue Growth Rate — Constant Currency  8.9 13.5 %
   8.1 12.6 %
Diluted earnings per share $0.86 - $1.05    $1.56 - $1.70 

The difference between the GAAP and non-GAAP revenue guidance presented above is a result of the expected impact of the application of the fair value provisions applicable to the accounting for business combinations closed prior to 2022 in the amount of $1.2 million for the quarter ending September 30, 2022.

(in millions, except percentages) Other Financial Metrics
ACV $392.0 - $412.0 
ACV Growth Rate  7.3 12.7 %
ACV Growth Rate — Constant Currency  13.0 18.5 %

/ Fiscal Year 2022 Guidance

The Company currently expects the following for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022:

(in millions, except percentages and per share data) GAAP   Non-GAAP
Revenue $1,997.7 - $2,047.7    $2,005.0 - $2,055.0 
Revenue Growth Rate  4.8 7.4 %    3.8 6.4 %
Revenue Growth Rate — Constant Currency  10.2 12.8 %    9.2 11.8 %
Diluted earnings per share $4.91 - $5.39    $7.50 - $7.88 

The difference between the GAAP and non-GAAP revenue guidance presented above is a result of the expected impact of the application of the fair value provisions applicable to the accounting for business combinations closed prior to 2022 in the amount of $7.3 million for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022.

(in millions, except percentages) Other Financial Metrics
ACV $1,980.0 - $2,020.0 
ACV Growth Rate  5.8 8.0 %
ACV Growth Rate — Constant Currency  11.3 13.5 %
Operating cash flows $570.0 - $610.0 

Our diluted FY 2022 EPS guidance is inclusive of $22.0M in interest expense ($18.0 million, net of tax). This compares to interest expense in FY 2021 of $12.4 million ($10.0 million, net of tax) with the significant increase in FY 2022 driven by the recent rising interest rate environment and our floating interest rate on our term loans.

Despite an ongoing volatile macroeconomic environment, the updated FY 2022 guidance reflects an operational raise on ACV, revenue, diluted EPS and operating cash flows driven by the underlying strength of our business model and market position. Offsetting this outlook, persistent and meaningful U.S. Dollar strengthening in exchange rates continues to drive unprecedented headwinds. As a result, the guidance assumes additional incremental adverse impacts from currency, primarily driven by substantial weakening in the Euro and Japanese Yen.

As we mentioned in the previous quarter, the currency impacts are solely the result of externally driven events. The underlying foundation of our business remains strong, and we continue to see momentum. The chart below captures the drivers of the update to our last guidance provided in early May:

(in millions, except per share data) Mid-point of Guidance in May   Incremental Operational Performance   August mid-point of Guidance at May Exchange Rates   Currency Fluctuations from May to August Guidance   August mid-point of Guidance at Current Exchange Rates
ACV $ 1,990   $ 29   $ 2,019   $ (19 )   $ 2,000
Revenue $ 2,035   $ 18   $ 2,053   $ (23 )   $ 2,030
Diluted earnings per share $ 7.74   $ 0.07   $ 7.81   $ (0.12 )   $ 7.69
Operating cash flows $ 590   $ 6   $ 596   $ (6 )   $ 590

Additionally, when compared to the 2021 currency rates, our full-year 2022 guidance is negatively impacted on ACV by approximately $100 million and on operating cash flow by approximately $35 million.

/ Use of Non-GAAP Measures

We provide non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross profit margin, 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 our 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.

We use non-GAAP financial measures (a) to evaluate our historical and prospective financial performance as well as our performance relative to our 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 employees. In addition, many financial analysts that follow us focus on and publish both historical results and future projections based on non-GAAP financial measures. We believe that it is in the best interest of our investors to provide this information to analysts so that they accurately report the non-GAAP financial information. Moreover, investors have historically requested, and we have historically reported, these non-GAAP financial measures as a means of providing consistent and comparable information with past reports of financial results.

While we believe 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 our competitors and may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures of our competitors due to potential differences in the exact method of calculation. We compensate 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. Historically, we have consummated acquisitions in order to support our strategic and other business objectives. Under prior accounting guidance, a fair value provision resulted in acquired deferred revenue that was often recorded on the opening balance sheet at an amount that was lower than the historical carrying value. Although this fair value provision has no impact on our business or cash flow, it adversely impacts our reported GAAP revenue in the reporting periods following an acquisition. In 2022, we adopted accounting guidance which eliminates the fair value provision that resulted in the deferred revenue adjustment on a prospective basis. In order to provide investors with financial information that facilitates comparison of both historical and future results, we provide non-GAAP financial measures which exclude the impact of the acquisition accounting adjustment for acquisitions prior to the adoption of the new guidance in 2022. We believe 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 us in our financial and operational decision-making, and (b) compare our past and future reports of financial results as the revenue reduction related to acquired deferred revenue will not recur when related subscription lease licenses and software maintenance contracts are renewed in future periods.

Amortization of intangible assets from acquisitions. We incur amortization of intangible assets, included in our GAAP presentation of amortization expense, related to various acquisitions we have made. We exclude these expenses for the purpose of calculating non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross profit margin, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating profit margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share when we evaluate our continuing operational performance 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 us after the acquisition. Accordingly, we do not consider these expenses for purposes of evaluating our performance during the applicable time period after the acquisition, and we exclude such expenses when making decisions to allocate resources. We believe 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 us in our financial and operational decision-making, and (b) compare our past reports of financial results as we have historically reported these non-GAAP financial measures.

Stock-based compensation expense. We incur expense related to stock-based compensation included in our GAAP presentation of cost of maintenance and service; research and development expense; and selling, general and administrative expense. This non-GAAP adjustment also includes excess payroll tax expense related to stock-based compensation. Although stock-based compensation is an expense and viewed as a form of compensation, we exclude these expenses for the purpose of calculating non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross profit margin, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating profit margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share when we evaluate our continuing operational performance. Specifically, we exclude stock-based compensation during our annual budgeting process and our quarterly and annual assessments of our performance. The annual budgeting process is the primary mechanism whereby we allocate resources to various initiatives and operational requirements. Additionally, the annual review by our board of directors during which it compares our 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 our senior management and department managers, charges related to stock-based compensation are excluded from expenditure and profitability results. In fact, we record stock-based compensation expense into a stand-alone cost center for which no single operational manager is responsible or accountable. In this way, we can 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. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow investors to (a) evaluate our operating results and the effectiveness of the methodology used by us to review our operating results, and (b) review historical comparability in our financial reporting as well as comparability with competitors' operating results.

Expenses related to business combinations. We incur expenses for professional services rendered in connection with business combinations, which are included in our GAAP presentation of selling, general and administrative expense. As of the second quarter of 2022, we have updated this non-GAAP measure to include, in addition to professional services rendered in connection with business combinations, other expenses directly related to business combinations, including compensation expenses and concurrent restructuring activities, such as employee severances and other exit costs. These costs are included in our GAAP presentation of selling, general and administrative and research and development expenses. The additional expenses were not material in the current or comparable period. We exclude these acquisition-related 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 we evaluate our continuing operational performance, as we generally would not have otherwise incurred these expenses in the periods presented as a part of our operations. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow investors to (a) evaluate our operating results and the effectiveness of the methodology used by us to review our operating results, and (b) review historical comparability in our financial reporting as well as comparability with competitors' operating results.

Non-GAAP tax provision. We utilize a normalized non-GAAP annual effective tax rate (AETR) to calculate non-GAAP measures. This methodology provides better consistency across interim reporting periods by eliminating the effects of non-recurring items and aligning the non-GAAP tax rate with our expected geographic earnings mix. To project this rate, we analyzed our historic and projected non-GAAP earnings mix by geography along with other factors such as our current tax structure, recurring tax credits and incentives, and expected tax positions. On an annual basis we will re-evaluate this rate for significant items that may materially affect our projections.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP. Our 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 our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

We have provided a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as listed below:

GAAP Reporting Measure Non-GAAP Reporting Measure
Revenue Non-GAAP Revenue
Gross Profit Non-GAAP Gross Profit
Gross Profit Margin Non-GAAP Gross Profit Margin
Operating Income Non-GAAP Operating Income
Operating Profit Margin Non-GAAP Operating Profit Margin
Net Income Non-GAAP Net Income
Diluted Earnings Per Share Non-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share

Constant currency. In addition to the non-GAAP financial measures detailed above, we use constant currency results for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons by excluding the effects of foreign currency fluctuations on the reported results. To present this information, the 2022 results 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 the 2021 comparable period, rather than the actual exchange rates in effect for 2022. Constant currency growth rates are calculated by adjusting the 2022 reported amounts by the 2022 currency fluctuation impacts and comparing the adjusted amounts to the 2021 comparable period reported amounts. We believe 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 us in our financial and operational decision-making, and (b) compare our reported results to our past reports of financial results without the effects of foreign currency fluctuations.
