According to Zacks Investment Research, "ANSYS develops and globally markets engineering simulation software and services. Robust investments in autonomous vehicles, electrification, smart, connected solutions and 5G acted as primary catalyst. Customers’ focus on utilizing simulation across repair, maintenance and other overhaul projects was a positive. Budgetary increase in allocation for defense spending across Europe and the United States favored growth in aerospace and defense domains. OPTIS, 3DSIM Granta Design and Helic buyouts are not only enabling ANSYS to bring innovative solutions to the market but are also aiding it to enhance foothold in the competitive simulations market. Further, the company’s new features in the product are a game changer for ANSYS in the simulation software market. However, adverse foreign currency exchange rates and integration risks remain concerns." (5/13/2019) 2. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We look forward to hearing more about this on the call. ACV in 1Q was up 7% y/y in c/c to $303.5M, which we would like to have seen come in closer to the 9% expected for the year (on a reported basis at the midpoint).
