"Ansys delivered exceptionally strong results for the second quarter and significantly beat our financial guidance across our key metrics. Our broad-based growth validates our strategy of Pervasive Simulation, and our product leadership and ongoing go-to-market momentum gives us increased confidence in our business and ability to execute against our goals. In July, we extended our technology leadership with Ansys 2021 R2, which introduced breakthrough technologies and innovative capabilities across our product portfolio. These enhancements are bolstering the value of Ansys simulation for our customers by providing them greater engineering insight with enhanced speed and scalability,” said Ajei Gopal, Ansys president and CEO.

Nicole Anasenes, Ansys CFO, stated, “Our outstanding performance was highlighted by 25% ACV growth in the second quarter, driving our first half 2021 ACV growth to 16%. Given the strength and momentum in our core business year-to-date, coupled with our sales pipeline, I am confident in our ability to achieve our increased full-year 2021 guidance.”
