ANSYS reported another strong quarter this morning, leading to the preliminary thought that
analysis tools may not be as affected by the overall economic downturn as other technology
areas. ANSYS reported both GAAP and non-GAAP data, to reflect the affects of the Ansoft
acquisition on the overall business; we’re sticking to GAAP since that is most directly
comparable to other companies in the space.

Total GAAP revenue in Q3 2008 was $122.2 million, up 30% over the $94.0 million reported
a year ago. Keep in mind that this total includes 2 months’ contribution from Ansoft; we
hope that ANSYS will quantify this contribution during the earnings conference call.

On a GAAP basis, software revenue was up 31% to $80.3 million, services was up 28% to
$42 million. Net income was reported as $25.8 million, up 38% from $18.7 million a year

ANSYS also released Q4 and 2009 guidance, in line with what analysts had been
expecting/predicting. For Q4, ANSYS sees GAAP revenue of between $137 million and
$141 million and for 2009, it sees overall GAAP revneue in the range of $602 million to $622

More after the earnings call.
