ANSYS Ranked High on Fastest-Growing Software Companies List

SOUTHPOINTE, Pa., April 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS), a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced that it has been ranked fifth on the CIOZone(TM) list of 40 Fastest-Growing Big Software Vendors. Part of its Surging 60 compilation, the listing provides ready information for chief information officers to use in making IT business decisions. ANSYS was one of only two engineering simulation software companies that made the list of 40 Fastest-Growing Big Software Vendors.

According to the CIOZone analysis, the revenue of public U.S. software companies jumped 24 percent in 2007, compared to 2006, while the ANSYS sales growth in that same period was 45.8 percent and the Company's profit change from 2006 to 2007 was 485.7 percent.

CIOZone compiled its Fastest-Growing Big Software Vendors list based on 2007 revenue and profit of publicly held software companies in the United States. It identified Security Industry Codes relevant to software, eliminated companies that were not purely software-related, and limited the list to companies that started the year with more than $150 million in sales "to make sure the list wasn't skewed toward very small companies that most CIOs would be unlikely to find themselves doing business with," the report said. Finally, the listing compared sales growth, revenue, net profit and profit change in calendar year 2007.

"Being listed on the CIOZone software list is an honor," said Jim Cashman, president and CEO of ANSYS, Inc. "It exemplifies our investment in driving technology to new levels, which is being rewarded by strong customer adoption. Many years ago, we saw simulation as the key to predicting how products in development would behave in a real-world environment. We remain committed to invest in the future of our advanced simulation solutions and to further expand our integrated portfolio, which continues to fuel our growth across various diverse industries and geographies."

The Surging 60 also included a list of the 20 Fastest-Growing Small Software Vendors, which consisted of companies that began the year with between $50 and $150 million in revenue. On March 31, 2008, ANSYS announced the proposed acquisition and signing of a definitive agreement for the purchase of Ansoft Corporation, which was named to CIOZone's small vendors' list.
