“This quarter’s results continue to reflect the improved business momentum that we have seen over the last few quarters, in spite of the greater than anticipated negative currency effects, due mostly to the volatility of the Euro. Overall, our business performed well on both the license and maintenance fronts, with a positive contribution from all major geographies. We strengthened our balance sheet, reduced our overall debt and our deferred revenue balance increased to an all time high,” stated Jim Cashman, ANSYS president and CEO. “We are encouraged by our first half performance, despite pockets of uncertainty that remain in the global business climate. We also continue to validate our belief about the future potential of simulation through our customers’ continued adoption of the ANSYS simulation suite to transform their product design processes, taking advantage of the strength of our broad physics portfolio to drive innovation, efficiencies and productivity gains.”
