Nicole Anasenes, Ansys CFO, stated, “Q4 capped an outstanding year and demonstrated the strength of our business model as we beat our financial guidance across all key metrics for both the quarter and the full-year. Q4’s outperformance resulted in full year 2021 ACV growth of 16% and revenue growth of 13% and 14% on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis, respectively. In FY 2021, our growth was wide-ranging across geographies and industries, and we achieved new company records across key financial metrics, including ACV, revenue and operating cash flow. We are entering 2022 with momentum and a strong backlog driven by the broad-based strength of our product portfolio. This bolsters our confidence in our 2022 guidance, which exceeds the 2022 ACV target of $2 billion outlined at our 2019 investor day.”
