NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

March 31, 2012

(Unaudited)

1.    Organization

ANSYS, Inc. (hereafter the “Company” or “ANSYS”) develops and globally markets engineering simulation software and technologies widely used by engineers, designers, researchers and students across a broad spectrum of industries and academia, including aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, electronics, biomedical, energy and defense.

In connection with its August 1, 2011 acquisition of Apache Design Solutions, Inc., which the Company subsequently renamed Apache Design, Inc. (“Apache”), the Company has reviewed the accounting guidance issued for disclosures about segments of an enterprise. As defined by the accounting guidance, the Company operates as two segments. However, the Company determined that its two operating segments are sufficiently similar and should be aggregated under the criteria provided in the related accounting guidance.

Given the integrated approach to the multi-discipline problem-solving needs of the Company’s customers, a single sale of software may contain components from multiple product areas and include combined technologies. The Company also has a multi-year product and integration strategy that will result in new combined products or changes to the historical product offerings. As a result, it is impracticable for the Company to provide accurate historical or current reporting among its various product lines.

2.    Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by ANSYS in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial information for commercial and industrial companies and the instructions to the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, the accompanying statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for complete financial statements. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements (and notes thereto) included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. The condensed consolidated December 31, 2011 balance sheet presented is derived from the audited December 31, 2011 balance sheet included in the most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation of the financial statements have been included, and all adjustments are of a normal and recurring nature. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for any future period.

3.    Acquisitions

On August 1, 2011, the Company completed its acquisition of Apache, a leading simulation software provider for advanced, low-power solutions in the electronics industry. Under the terms of the merger agreement, ANSYS acquired 100% of the outstanding shares of Apache for a purchase price of $314.0 million, which included $31.9 million in acquired cash and short-term investments on Apache’s balance sheet, $3.2 million in ANSYS replacement stock option awards issued to holders of partially-vested Apache stock options and $9.5 million in contingent consideration that is based on the retention of a key member of Apache’s management. The Company funded the transaction entirely with existing cash balances. The operating results of Apache have been included in the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements since the date of acquisition, August 1, 2011.

The merger agreement included a contingent consideration arrangement that requires additional payments of up to $12.0 million to be paid by the Company in equal installments to the Apache stockholders and holders of vested Apache options on each of the first three anniversaries of the closing of the acquisition. To receive these payments, a key member of Apache’s management must remain an employee of ANSYS on each of the first three anniversaries of the acquisition closing date. Management estimated that it was probable that all three payments would be made, and recorded the fair value of the contingent payments as a liability on the date of acquisition. The portion of contingent payments attributable to the key member of Apache management was determined to be compensation, and is accounted for outside of the business combination. The portion of the contingent payments attributable to other shareholders was determined to be contingent purchase price consideration and was estimated to be $9.5 million based on the net present value of the expected payments. Refer to Note 9 for a description of the valuation technique and inputs used to estimate the fair value of the contingent consideration.

Table of Contents

In accordance with the merger agreement, the Company granted performance-based restricted stock units to key members of Apache management and employees, with a maximum value of $13.0 million to be earned annually over a three-fiscal-year period beginning January 1, 2012. Vesting of the full award or a portion thereof is determined discretely for each of the three fiscal years based on the achievement of certain revenue and operating income targets by the Apache subsidiary, and the recipient’s continued employment through the measurement period. The value of each restricted stock unit on the August 1, 2011 grant date was $50.30, the closing price of ANSYS stock as of that date. Stock-based compensation expense based on the fair value of the awards will be recorded from the January 1, 2012 service inception date through the conclusion of the three-year measurement period based on management’s estimates concerning the probability of vesting. As of March 31, 2012, the Company had determined it was probable that at least a portion of these awards would vest, and recorded stock-based compensation expense in the amount of $980,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012.

Under the merger agreement, holders of partially-vested Apache options at the date of acquisition received options to purchase ANSYS shares of common stock based on an agreed-upon conversion ratio (“the Replacement Awards”). The value of the Replacement Awards attributable to pre-combination service was estimated to be $3.2 million at the acquisition date, and was included in consideration transferred. The value of the Replacement Awards attributable to post-combination service is recognized as stock-based compensation in earnings during the post-acquisition period.

In valuing deferred revenue on the Apache balance sheet as of the acquisition date, the Company applied the fair value provisions applicable to the accounting for business combinations. Although this acquisition accounting requirement had no impact on the Company’s business or cash flow, the Company’s reported revenue under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, primarily for the first 12 months post-acquisition, will be less than the sum of what would otherwise have been reported by Apache and ANSYS absent the acquisition. Acquired deferred revenue of $10.1 million was recorded on the opening balance sheet. This amount was approximately $13.6 million lower than the historical carrying value. The impact on reported revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $2.2 million, primarily in lease license revenue. The expected impact on reported revenue is $840,000 and $3.4 million for the quarter ending June 30, 2012 and the year ending December 31, 2012, respectively.

Table of Contents

The assets and liabilities of Apache have been recorded based on management’s estimates of their fair market values as of the acquisition date. The following tables summarize the preliminary fair value of consideration transferred and the fair values of identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the acquisition date:

Total identifiable net assets

   $ 119,088

   $ 194,889   
  

 

 

 

The goodwill, which is not tax-deductible, is attributed to intangible assets that do not qualify for separate recognition, including the assembled workforce of the acquired business and the synergies expected to arise as a result of the acquisition of Apache. The fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed that are listed above are based on preliminary calculations and the estimates and assumptions for these items are subject to change as additional information is obtained during the measurement period (up to one year from the acquisition date). During the measurement period since the Apache acquisition date, the Company increased the values of net deferred tax liabilities from $46.1 million to $48.8 million, and identifiable finite-lived intangible assets from $151.7 million to $154.0 million, with the offset recorded to goodwill. These adjustments were based on refinements to assumptions used in the preliminary valuation of intangible assets and information about what was known and knowable as of the acquisition date in the calculation of the net deferred tax liabilities.

4.    Other Current Assets

The Company reports accounts receivable, related to the portion of annual lease licenses and software maintenance that has not yet been recognized as revenue, as a component of other receivables and current assets. These amounts totaled $116.5 million and $112.8 million as of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

The Company reports income taxes receivable, including amounts related to overpayments and refunds, as a component of other receivables and current assets. These amounts totaled $39.2 million and $36.0 million as of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

5.    Uncertain Tax Positions

The Company reports reserves for uncertain tax positions, including estimated penalties and interest, as a component of other long-term liabilities. These amounts totaled $35.9 million and $35.5 million as of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

6.    Earnings Per Share

Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) amounts are computed by dividing earnings by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted EPS amounts assume the issuance of common stock for all potentially dilutive equivalents outstanding. To the extent stock options are anti-dilutive, they are excluded from the calculation of diluted EPS. The details of basic and diluted EPS are as follows:

On July 31, 2008, ANSYS borrowed $355.0 million from a syndicate of banks. The interest rate on the indebtedness provides for tiered pricing with the initial rate at the prime rate + 0.50%, or the LIBOR rate + 1.50%, with step downs permitted after the initial six months under the credit agreement down to a flat prime rate or the LIBOR rate + 0.75%. Such tiered pricing is determined by the Company’s consolidated leverage ratio. The Company’s consolidated leverage ratio has been reduced to the lowest pricing tier in the debt agreement. On March 31, 2012, the Company made the required quarterly principal payment of $10.6 million.

For the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, the Company recorded interest expense related to the term loan at interest rates of 1.33% and 1.05%, respectively. The interest expense on the term loan and amortization related to debt financing costs were as follows:

8.    Goodwill and Intangible Assets

During the first quarter of 2012, the Company completed the annual impairment test for goodwill and intangible assets with indefinite lives and determined that these assets had not been impaired as of the test date, January 1, 2012. The Company performed a qualitative assessment and as of the test date, there was sufficient evidence that it was not more likely than not that the fair values of its reporting units were less than their carrying amounts. The application of a qualitative assessment requires the Company to assess and make judgments regarding a variety of factors which potentially impact the fair value of a reporting unit including general economic conditions, industry and market-specific conditions, customer behavior, cost factors, the Company’s financial performance and trends, the Company’s strategies and business plans, capital requirements, management and personnel issues, and the Company’s stock price, among others. The Company then considers the totality of these and other factors, placing more weight on the events and circumstances that are judged to most affect a reporting unit’s fair value or the carrying amount of its net assets, to reach a qualitative conclusion regarding whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit exceeds its carrying amount. No events occurred or circumstances changed during the three months ended March 31, 2012 that would indicate that the fair values of the Company’s reporting units are below their carrying amounts.

9.    Fair Value Measurement

The valuation hierarchy for disclosure of assets and liabilities reported at fair value prioritizes the inputs for such valuations into three broad levels:

 

   

Level 1: quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

 

   

Level 2: quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets or inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly through market corroboration, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument; or

 

   

Level 3: unobservable inputs based on the Company’s own assumptions used to measure assets and liabilities at fair value.

A financial asset or liability’s classification within the hierarchy is determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

The following tables provide the assets and liabilities carried at fair value and measured on a recurring basis:

Table of Contents

The cash equivalents in the preceding tables represent money market mutual funds and time deposits.

The short-term investments in the preceding tables represent deposits held by certain foreign subsidiaries of the Company. The deposits have fixed interest rates with maturity dates ranging from three months to one year. There were no unrealized gains or losses associated with these deposits for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011.

In January 2012, the Company entered into a foreign currency futures contract with a third-party U.S. financial institution, which will be settled in June 2012. The purpose of this contract is to mitigate the Company’s exposure to foreign exchange risk arising from intercompany receivables from a Japanese subsidiary. As of March 31, 2012, the Company’s foreign exchange future is in an asset position of $705,000. The foreign exchange futures are measured at fair value each reporting period, with gains or losses recognized in earnings.

On August 1, 2011, the Company completed its acquisition of Apache, a leading simulation software provider for advanced, low-power solutions in the electronics industry. The merger agreement included a contingent consideration arrangement that requires additional payments of up to $12.0 million to be paid by the Company in equal installments to the Apache stockholders and holders of vested Apache options on each of the first three anniversaries of the closing of the acquisition. To receive these payments, a key member of Apache’s management must remain an employee of ANSYS on each of the first three anniversaries of the acquisition closing date. Management estimated that it was probable that all three payments would be made, and recorded the fair value of the contingent payments as a liability on the date of acquisition. The portion of contingent payments attributable to the key member of Apache management was determined to be deferred compensation, and is accounted for outside of the business combination. A liability of $2.1 million for deferred compensation was recorded as of March 31, 2012 based on the net present value of the expected payments. The portion of the contingent payments attributable to other shareholders was determined to be contingent purchase price consideration and was estimated to be $9.6 million based on the net present value of the expected payments as of March 31, 2012. The net present value calculations for the deferred compensation and contingent consideration included a significant unobservable input in the assumption that all three payments will be made, and therefore the liabilities were classified as Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy.

The Company had no transfers of amounts in or out of Level 1 or Level 2 fair value measurements during the three months ended March 31, 2012.

The carrying values of cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued expenses, other accrued liabilities and short-term obligations approximate their fair values because of their short-term nature. The carrying value of long-term debt approximates its fair value due to the variable interest rate underlying the Company’s credit facility.

In February 2012, the Company announced that its Board of Directors approved an increase to its authorized share repurchase program. Under the Company’s stock repurchase program, the Company repurchased no shares during the three months ended March 31, 2012. During the three months ended March 31, 2011, ANSYS repurchased 247,443 shares at an average price per share of $51.34. As of March 31, 2012, 3.0 million shares remained authorized for repurchase under the program.

13.    Contingencies and Commitments

The Company is subject to various investigations, claims and legal proceedings that arise in the ordinary course of business, including alleged infringement of intellectual property rights, commercial disputes, labor and employment matters, tax audits and other matters. In the opinion of the Company, the resolution of pending matters is not expected to have a material, adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated results of operations, cash flows or financial position. However, each of these matters is subject to various uncertainties and it is possible that an unfavorable resolution of one or more of these proceedings could materially affect the Company’s results of operations, cash flows or financial position.

The Company sells software licenses and services to its customers under proprietary software license agreements. Each license agreement contains the relevant terms of the contractual arrangement with the customer, and generally includes certain provisions for indemnifying the customer against losses, expenses and liabilities from damages that are incurred by or awarded against the customer in the event the Company’s software or services are found to infringe upon a patent, copyright, or other proprietary right of a third party. To date, the Company has not had to reimburse any of its customers for any losses related to these indemnification provisions and no material claims asserted under these indemnification provisions are outstanding as of March 31, 2012. For several reasons, including the lack of prior material indemnification claims, the Company cannot determine the maximum amount of potential future payments, if any, related to such indemnification provisions.

14.    New Accounting Guidance

Fair Value Measurements: In May 2011, new accounting guidance was issued to provide a consistent definition of fair value and to ensure that the fair value measurement and disclosure requirements are similar between generally accepted accounting principles in the United States and International Financial Reporting Standards. The guidance changes certain fair value measurement principles and enhances the disclosure requirements, particularly for Level 3 fair value measurements. This guidance was adopted by the Company effective January 1, 2012, and it did not have any impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Presentation of Comprehensive Income: In June 2011, new accounting guidance was issued regarding the presentation of comprehensive income in consolidated financial statements. This guidance requires that all non-owner changes in stockholders’ equity be presented either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. This guidance was adopted by the Company effective January 1, 2012, and all non-owner changes in stockholders’ equity were presented in a separate statement.

Table of Contents

Testing Goodwill for Impairment: In September 2011, new accounting guidance was issued regarding the requirement to test goodwill for impairment on at least an annual basis. Existing guidance requires that this test be performed by comparing the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount, including goodwill (step one). If the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, then the second step of the test must be performed to measure the amount of the impairment loss, if any. Under the new guidance, an entity has the option to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether the existence of events or circumstances leads to a determination that it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. If, after assessing the totality of events or circumstances, an entity determines it is not more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, then performing the two-step impairment test is unnecessary. However, if an entity concludes otherwise, then it is required to perform the first step of the two-step impairment test. This guidance was adopted by the Company effective January 1, 2012, and it did not have any impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of

ANSYS, Inc.

Canonsburg, Pennsylvania

We have reviewed the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet of ANSYS, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of March 31, 2012, and the related condensed consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income and cash flows for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2012 and 2011. These interim financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management.

We conducted our reviews in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). A review of interim financial information consists principally of applying analytical procedures and making inquiries of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters. It is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the objective of which is the expression of an opinion regarding the financial statements taken as a whole. Accordingly, we do not express such an opinion.

Based on our reviews, we are not aware of any material modifications that should be made to such condensed consolidated interim financial statements for them to be in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

We have previously audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the consolidated balance sheet of ANSYS, Inc. and subsidiaries as of December 31, 2011, and the related consolidated statements of income, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the year then ended (not presented herein); and in our report dated February 23, 2012, we expressed an unqualified opinion on those consolidated financial statements. In our opinion, the information set forth in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2011 is fairly stated, in all material respects, in relation to the consolidated balance sheet from which it has been derived.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Overview:

ANSYS, Inc.’s results for the three months ended March 31, 2012 reflect growth in revenues of 17.3%, operating income of 8.9% and diluted earnings per share of 6.7% as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011. The Company experienced higher revenues in 2012 from growth in both license and maintenance revenue, and from the August 1, 2011 acquisition of Apache. These contributions were partially offset by increased operating expenses and additional amortization from intangible assets related to the Apache acquisition.

The Company’s non-GAAP results for the three months ended March 31, 2012 reflect increases in revenue of 18.6%, operating income of 19.6% and diluted earnings per share of 15.8% as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011. The non-GAAP results exclude the income statement effects of the acquisition accounting adjustment to deferred revenue, stock-based compensation and acquisition-related amortization of intangible assets. For further disclosure regarding non-GAAP results, see the section titled “Non-GAAP Results” immediately preceding the section titled “Liquidity and Capital Resources”.

In valuing deferred revenue on the Apache balance sheet as of the acquisition date, the Company applied the fair value provisions applicable to the accounting for business combinations. Although this acquisition accounting requirement had no impact on the Company’s business or cash flow, the Company’s reported revenue under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, primarily for the first 12 months post-acquisition, will be less than the sum of what would otherwise have been reported by Apache and ANSYS absent the acquisition. Acquired deferred revenue of $10.1 million was recorded on the opening balance sheet. This amount was approximately $13.6 million lower than the historical carrying value. The impact on reported revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $2.2 million, primarily in lease license revenue. The expected impact on reported revenue is $840,000 and $3.4 million for the quarter ending June 30, 2012 and the year ending December 31, 2012, respectively.

The Company’s financial position includes $558.4 million in cash and short-term investments, and working capital of $373.8 million as of March 31, 2012. The Company has outstanding borrowings under its term loan of $116.9 million.

ANSYS develops and globally markets engineering simulation software and services widely used by engineers, designers, researchers and students across a broad spectrum of industries and academia, including aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, electronics, biomedical, energy and defense. Headquartered south of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the Company and its subsidiaries employed approximately 2,200 people as of March 31, 2012 and focus on the development of open and flexible solutions that enable users to analyze designs directly on the desktop, providing a common platform for fast, efficient and cost-conscious product development, from design concept to final-stage testing and validation. The Company distributes its ANSYS suite of simulation technologies through a global network of independent

Table of Contents

channel partners and direct sales offices in strategic, global locations. It is the Company’s intention to continue to maintain this hybrid sales and distribution model.

The Company licenses its technology to businesses, educational institutions and governmental agencies. Growth in the Company’s revenue is affected by the strength of global economies, general business conditions, currency exchange rate fluctuations, customer budgetary constraints and the competitive position of the Company’s products. The Company believes that the features, functionality and integrated multiphysics capabilities of its software products are as strong as they have ever been. However, the software business is generally characterized by long sales cycles. These long sales cycles increase the difficulty of predicting sales for any particular quarter. The Company makes many operational and strategic decisions based upon short- and long-term sales forecasts that are impacted not only by these long sales cycles but by current global economic conditions. As a result, the Company believes that its overall performance is best measured by fiscal year results rather than by quarterly results.

The Company’s management considers the competition and price pressure that it faces in the short- and long-term by focusing on expanding the breadth, depth, ease of use and quality of the technologies, features, functionality and integrated multiphysics capabilities of its software products as compared to its competitors; investing in research and development to develop new and innovative products and increase the capabilities of its existing products; supplying new products and services; focusing on customer needs, training, consulting and support; and enhancing its distribution channels. From time to time, the Company also considers acquisitions to supplement its global engineering talent, product offerings and distribution channels.

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the three months ended March 31, 2012, and with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2011 filed on the Annual Report on Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company’s discussion and analysis of its financial condition and results of operations are based upon the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these financial statements requires the Company to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an ongoing basis, the Company evaluates its estimates, including those related to fair value of stock awards, bad debts, contract revenue, valuation of goodwill, valuation of intangible assets, contingent consideration, deferred compensation, income taxes, and contingencies and litigation. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience, market experience, estimated future cash flows and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily available from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

The Company’s revenue in the quarter ended March 31, 2012 increased 17.3% as compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2011, including increases in all major revenue categories. This growth was partially influenced by $13.5 million in Apache-related revenue and benefits from the Company’s continued investment in its global sales and marketing organization. Revenue from lease licenses increased 34.8% as compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2011, due to growth in sales of lease licenses and the addition of Apache-related lease license revenue of $13.1 million. Annual maintenance contracts that were sold with new perpetual licenses, along with maintenance contracts sold with new perpetual licenses in previous quarters, contributed to maintenance revenue growth of 14.4%. Perpetual license revenue, which is derived entirely from new sales during the quarter, increased 1.0% as compared to the prior year quarter. Service revenue increased 29.3% as compared to the prior year.

With respect to revenue, on average for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, the U.S. Dollar was approximately 0.9% stronger, when measured against the Company’s primary foreign currencies, than for the quarter ended March 31, 2011. The net overall strengthening resulted in decreased revenue of approximately $900,000 and increased operating income of approximately $100,000 during the quarter ended March 31, 2012, as compared with the same quarter of 2011.

A substantial portion of the Company’s license and maintenance revenue is derived from annual lease and maintenance contracts. These contracts are generally renewed on an annual basis and typically have a high rate of customer renewal. In addition to the recurring revenue base associated with these contracts, a majority of customers purchasing new perpetual licenses also purchase related annual maintenance contracts. As a result of the significant recurring revenue base, the Company’s license and maintenance revenue growth rate in any period does

not necessarily correlate to the growth rate of new license and maintenance contracts sold during that period. To the extent the rate of customer renewal for lease and maintenance contracts is high, incremental lease contracts, and maintenance contracts sold with new perpetual licenses, will result in license and maintenance revenue growth. Conversely, if the rate of renewal for these contracts is adversely affected by economic or other factors, the Company’s license and maintenance growth will be adversely affected over the term that the revenue for those contracts would have otherwise been recognized.

As of March 31, 2012, the Company has a $34.1 million backlog of orders received but not invoiced, primarily as a result of the August 1, 2011 acquisition of Apache.

International and domestic revenues, as a percentage of total revenue, were 65.7% and 34.3%, respectively, during the quarter ended March 31, 2012, and 68.9% and 31.1%, respectively, during the quarter ended March 31, 2011. The Company derived 25.8% of its total revenue through the indirect sales channel in the first quarters of both 2012 and 2011.

In valuing deferred revenue on the Apache balance sheet as of the acquisition date, the Company applied the fair value provisions applicable to the accounting for business combinations. Acquired deferred revenue of $10.1 million was recorded on the opening balance sheet. This amount was approximately $13.6 million lower than the historical carrying value. The impact on reported revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $2.2 million, primarily in lease license revenue. The expected impact on reported revenue is $840,000 and $3.4 million for the quarter ending June 30, 2012 and the year ending December 31, 2012, respectively.

Software Licenses: The increase in software license costs was primarily due to Apache-related cost of sales of $2.6 million and increased stock-based compensation of $300,000.

Amortization: The increase in amortization expense was primarily a result of $3.4 million in amortization of acquired Apache software, partially offset by an $800,000 decrease in amortization of other acquired software.

Maintenance and Service: The increase in maintenance and service costs is primarily due to the following:

 

   

Increased salaries and headcount-related costs of $1.2 million.

 

   

Increased business travel expenses of $200,000.

The improvement in gross profit was a result of the increase in revenue offset by a smaller increase in related cost of sales.

Increased salaries of $1.7 million.

 

   

Increased stock-based compensation expense of $700,000.

 

   

Increased professional fees and business travel expenses, each of $500,000.

 

   

Decreased third-party commissions of $1.5 million.

The Company anticipates that it will continue to make targeted investments in its global sales and marketing organization and its global business infrastructure to enhance major account sales activities and to support its worldwide sales distribution and marketing strategies, and the business in general.

Research and Development: The increase in research and development costs was primarily due to the following:

 

   

Apache-related research and development expenses of $3.8 million.

 

   

Increased stock-based compensation expense of $1.5 million.

 

   

Increased salaries of $1.3 million.

Interest Income: Interest income for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 was $901,000 as compared to $695,000 during the quarter ended March 31, 2011. Interest income increased as a result of an increase in the rate of return on cash and cash equivalent balances.

Other Expense, net: The Company recorded other expense of $616,000 during the quarter ended March 31, 2012 as compared to other expense of $514,000 during the quarter ended March 31, 2011. The activity for both quarters was primarily composed of net foreign currency transaction losses. As the Company’s presence in foreign locations continues to expand, the Company will have increased exposure to volatility of foreign exchange rates for the foreseeable future.

Income Tax Provision: The Company recorded income tax expense of $21.8 million and had income before income taxes of $67.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2012. This represents an effective tax rate of 32.3% in the first quarter of 2012. During the quarter ended March 31, 2011, the Company recorded income tax expense of $19.4 million and had income before income taxes of $61.7 million. The Company’s effective tax rate was 31.5% in the first quarter of 2011.

When compared to the federal and state combined statutory rate, these rates are favorably impacted by lower statutory tax rates in many of the Company’s foreign jurisdictions, domestic manufacturing deductions, research and experimentation credits and tax benefits associated with the merger of the Company’s Japan subsidiaries in the third quarter of 2010. In the U.S., which is the largest jurisdiction for which the Company receives such a tax credit, the availability of the research and development credit expired in December 2011 and it is uncertain whether the U.S. Congress will reinstate this credit or the amount of the credit available if it is reinstated for 2012 or future periods. These rates are also impacted by charges or benefits associated with the Company’s uncertain tax positions.

Non-GAAP Measures

Management uses non-GAAP financial measures (a) to evaluate the Company’s historical and prospective financial performance as well as its performance relative to its competitors, (b) to set internal sales targets and spending budgets, (c) to allocate resources, (d) to measure operational profitability and the accuracy of forecasting, (e) to assess financial discipline over operational expenditures and (f) as an important factor in determining variable compensation for management and its employees. In addition, many financial analysts that follow the Company focus on and publish both historical results and future projections based on non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes that it is in the best interest of its investors to provide this information to analysts so that they accurately report the non-GAAP financial information. Moreover, investors have historically requested and the Company has historically reported these non-GAAP financial measures as a means of providing consistent and comparable information with past reports of financial results.

While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors, there are limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, are not reported by all of the Company’s competitors and may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures of the Company’s competitors due to potential differences in the exact method of calculation. The Company compensates for these limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by reviewing the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures.

The adjustments to these non-GAAP financial measures, and the basis for such adjustments, are outlined below:

Acquisition accounting for deferred revenue and its related tax impact. Historically, the Company has consummated acquisitions in order to support its strategic and other business objectives. In accordance with the fair value provisions applicable to the accounting for business combinations, acquired deferred revenue is often recorded on the opening balance sheet at an amount that is lower than the historical carrying value. Although this purchase accounting requirement has no impact on the Company’s business or cash flow, it adversely impacts the Company’s reported GAAP revenue in the reporting periods following an acquisition. In order to provide investors with financial information that facilitates comparison of both historical and future results, the Company provides non-GAAP financial measures which exclude the impact of the acquisition accounting adjustment. The Company believes that this non-GAAP financial adjustment is useful to investors because it allows investors to (a) evaluate the effectiveness of the methodology and information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and (b) compare past and future reports of financial results of the Company as the revenue reduction related to acquired deferred revenue will not recur when related annual lease licenses and software maintenance contracts are renewed in future periods.

Table of Contents

Amortization of intangibles from acquisitions and its related tax impact. The Company incurs amortization of intangibles, included in its GAAP presentation of amortization expense, related to various acquisitions it has made in recent years. Management excludes these expenses and their related tax impact for the purpose of calculating non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating profit margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share when it evaluates the continuing operational performance of the Company because these costs are fixed at the time of an acquisition, are then amortized over a period of several years after the acquisition and generally cannot be changed or influenced by management after the acquisition. Accordingly, management does not consider these expenses for purposes of evaluating the performance of the Company during the applicable time period after the acquisition, and it excludes such expenses when making decisions to allocate resources. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow investors to (a) evaluate the effectiveness of the methodology and information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and (b) compare past reports of financial results of the Company as the Company has historically reported these non-GAAP financial measures.

Stock-based compensation expense and its related tax impact. The Company incurs expense related to stock-based compensation included in its GAAP presentation of cost of software licenses; cost of maintenance and service; research and development expense and selling, general and administrative expense. Although stock-based compensation is an expense of the Company and viewed as a form of compensation, management excludes these expenses for the purpose of calculating non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating profit margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share when it evaluates the continuing operational performance of the Company. Specifically, the Company excludes stock-based compensation during its annual budgeting process and its quarterly and annual assessments of the Company’s and management’s performance. The annual budgeting process is the primary mechanism whereby the Company allocates resources to various initiatives and operational requirements. Additionally, the annual review by the board of directors during which it compares the Company’s historical business model and profitability to the planned business model and profitability for the forthcoming year excludes the impact of stock-based compensation. In evaluating the performance of senior management and department managers, charges related to stock-based compensation are excluded from expenditure and profitability results. In fact, the Company records stock-based compensation expense into a stand-alone cost center for which no single operational manager is responsible or accountable. In this way, management is able to review, on a period-to-period basis, each manager’s performance and assess financial discipline over operational expenditures without the effect of stock-based compensation. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow investors to (a) evaluate the Company’s operating results and the effectiveness of the methodology used by management to review the Company’s operating results, and (b) review historical comparability in its financial reporting as well as comparability with competitors’ operating results.

Transaction costs related to business combinations. The Company incurs expenses for professional services rendered in connection with business combinations, which are included in

its GAAP presentation of selling, general and administrative expense. These expenses are generally not tax-deductible. Management excludes these acquisition-related transaction costs for the purpose of calculating non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating profit margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share when it evaluates the continuing operational performance of the Company, as it generally would not have otherwise incurred these expenses in the periods presented as a part of its continuing operations. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow investors to (a) evaluate the Company’s operating results and the effectiveness of the methodology used by management to review the Company’s operating results, and (b) review historical comparability in its financial reporting as well as comparability with competitors’ operating results.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP financial measures, and should be read only in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The Company has provided a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as listed below:

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments: As of March 31, 2012, the Company had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaling $558.4 million and working capital of $373.8 million as compared to cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $472.4 million and working capital of $301.3 million at December 31, 2011.

Cash and cash equivalents consist primarily of highly liquid investments such as money market mutual funds and deposits held at major banks. Short-term investments consist primarily of deposits held by certain foreign subsidiaries of the Company with original maturities of three months to one year. Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments include $183.8 million held by the Company’s foreign subsidiaries as of March 31, 2012. If these foreign balances were repatriated to the U.S., they would be subject to domestic tax, resulting in a tax obligation in the period of repatriation. The amount of cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments held by these subsidiaries is subject to translation adjustments caused by changes in foreign currency exchange rates as of the end of each respective reporting period, the offset to which is recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet.

Cash flows from operating activities: The Company’s operating activities provided cash of $83.6 million in the first quarter of 2012 and $84.9 million in the first quarter of 2011. The net $1.3 million decrease in operating cash flows in the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011 was primarily related to:

 

   

A $9.6 million decrease in cash flows from operating assets and liabilities whereby these fluctuations produced a net cash inflow of $11.6 million during the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to $21.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2011.

 

   

An increase in other non-cash operating adjustments of $5.0 million from $21.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011 to $26.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012.

 

   

An increase in net income of $3.3 million from $42.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011 to $45.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012.

Cash flows from investing activities: The Company’s investing activities used net cash of $4.7 million and $3.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2011, respectively. Total capital spending was $4.7 million in the first quarter of 2012 and $3.3 million in the first quarter of 2011. The Company currently plans capital spending of approximately $30.0 million to $35.0 million during fiscal year 2012 as compared to $22.1 million of capital spending during fiscal year 2011. However, the level of spending will be dependent upon various factors, including growth of the business and general economic conditions.

Cash flows from financing activities: Financing activities provided cash of $2.4 million and used cash of $9.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. This change of $11.6 million was primarily the result of $12.7 million spent during the first

quarter of 2011 to repurchase approximately 247,000 shares of treasury stock at an average price of $51.34 per share, whereas the Company repurchased no shares in the first quarter of 2012. This change was partially offset by a $5.3 million increase in principal payments on long-term debt in the 2012 period as compared to the 2011 period.

The Company’s term loan includes covenants related to the consolidated leverage ratio and the consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio, as well as certain restrictions on additional investments and indebtedness. As of March 31, 2012, the Company is in compliance with all financial covenants as stated in the credit agreement.

The Company believes that existing cash and cash equivalent balances of $557.8 million, together with cash generated from operations, will be sufficient to meet the Company’s working capital, capital expenditure and debt service requirements through the next twelve months. The Company’s cash requirements in the future may also be financed through additional equity or debt financings. There can be no assurance that such financings can be obtained on favorable terms, if at all.

As of March 31, 2012, 3.0 million shares remain authorized for repurchase under the Company’s stock repurchase program.

The Company continues to generate positive cash flows from operating activities and believes that the best use of its excess cash is to repay its long-term debt, to invest in the business and, under certain favorable conditions, to repurchase stock. Additionally, the Company has in the past, and expects in the future, to acquire or make investments in complementary companies, products, services and technologies. Any future acquisitions may be funded by available cash and investments, cash generated from operations, existing or additional credit facilities, or from the issuance of additional securities.

The Company has a $3.1 million line of credit available on a purchase card.

The Company’s operating cash flow was favorably impacted by approximately $4.1 million and $5.0 million during the first quarters of 2012 and 2011, respectively, as a result of the 2010 merger of the Company’s Japan subsidiaries. This merger is expected to favorably impact the Company’s cash flow from operations in future periods as follows:

 

    

Estimated Future Cash Flow Savings

Fiscal year 2012 - 2013

   $8 - $9 million per year

Fiscal year 2014 - 2015

   $9 - $10 million per year

Fiscal year 2016 - 2017

   $10 - $11 million per year

Fiscal year 2018

   $4 - $5 million

Uncertain timing

   $26 million

Total future benefits

   $84 - $91 million

With respect to the amounts in the preceding table whereby the timing is listed as “uncertain,” the realization of these benefits is affected by the resolution of an audit of the Company’s amended tax return refund claims, which the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) is expected to commence in the second quarter of 2012. The Company continues to expect that it will realize these cash flow benefits.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

The Company does not have any special purpose entities or off-balance sheet financing.

Contractual Obligations

There were no material changes to the Company’s significant contractual obligations during the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to those previously reported in “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” within the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

No significant changes have occurred to the Company’s critical accounting policies and estimates as previously reported within “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K.

During the first quarter of 2012, the Company completed the annual impairment test for goodwill and intangible assets with indefinite lives and determined that these assets had not been impaired as of the test date, January 1, 2012. As of the test date, there was sufficient evidence that it was not more likely than not that the fair values of the Company’s reporting units were less than their carrying values. No events occurred or circumstances changed during the three months ended March 31, 2012 that would indicate that the fair values of the Company’s reporting units are below their carrying amounts.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

Interest Income Rate Risk. Changes in the overall level of interest rates affect the interest income that is generated from the Company’s cash and short-term investments. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, total interest income was $901,000. Cash and cash equivalents consist primarily of highly liquid investments such as money market mutual funds and deposits held at major banks.

Interest Expense Rate Risk. The Company entered into a $355.0 million term loan with variable interest rates as of July 31, 2008. The term loan is scheduled to mature on July 31, 2013 and provides for tiered pricing with the initial rate at the prime rate + 0.50%, or the LIBOR rate + 1.50%, with step downs permitted after the initial six months under the credit agreement down to a flat prime rate or the LIBOR rate + 0.75%. Such tiered pricing is determined by the Company’s consolidated leverage ratio. The Company’s consolidated leverage ratio has been reduced to the lowest pricing tier in the credit agreement. The credit agreement includes quarterly financial covenants, requiring the Company to maintain certain financial ratios and, as is customary for facilities of this type, certain events of default that permit the acceleration of the loan. Borrowings outstanding under this facility totaled $116.9 million as of March 31, 2012.

For the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, the Company recorded interest expense related to the term loan at interest rates of 1.33% and 1.05%, respectively. The interest expense on the term loan and amortization related to debt financing costs were as follows:

 

     Three Months Ended  
     March 31, 2012      March 31, 2011  
(in thousands)    Interest
Expense
     Amortization      Interest
Expense
     Amortization  

July 31, 2008 term loan

   $ 428       $ 204       $ 420       $ 252   

Based on the effective interest rates and remaining outstanding borrowings at March 31, 2012, a 0.50% increase in interest rates would not impact the Company’s interest expense for the quarter ending June 30, 2012. Based on the effective interest rates and remaining outstanding borrowings at March 31, 2012, assuming contractual quarterly principal payments are made, a 0.50% increase in interest rates would increase the Company’s interest expense by approximately $235,000 for the year ending December 31, 2012.

The interest rate on the outstanding term loan balance is set for the quarter ending June 30, 2012 at 1.22%, which is based on LIBOR + 0.75%. As of March 31, 2012, the fair value of the debt approximated the recorded value.

Foreign Currency Transaction Risk. As the Company continues to expand its business presence in international regions, the portion of its revenue, expenses, cash, accounts receivable and payment obligations denominated in foreign currencies continues to increase. As a result, changes in currency exchange rates will affect the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows. The Company is most impacted by movements in and among the

British Pound, Euro, Japanese Yen, Canadian Dollar, Indian Rupee, Chinese Renminbi, Korean Won, Taiwan Dollar and the U.S. Dollar.

With respect to revenue, on average for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, the U.S. Dollar was approximately 0.9% stronger, when measured against the Company’s primary foreign currencies, than for the quarter ended March 31, 2011. The net overall strengthening resulted in decreased revenue of approximately $900,000 and increased operating income of approximately $100,000 during the quarter ended March 31, 2012, as compared with the same quarter of 2011.

In January 2012, the Company entered into a foreign currency futures contract with a third-party U.S. financial institution, which will be settled in June 2012. The purpose of this contract is to mitigate the Company’s exposure to foreign exchange risk arising from intercompany receivables from a Japanese subsidiary. As of March 31, 2012, the Company’s foreign exchange future is in an asset position of $705,000. The foreign exchange futures are measured at fair value each reporting period, with gains or losses recognized in earnings.

The most significant currency impacts on revenue and operating income were primarily attributable to U.S. Dollar exchange rate changes against the Euro, British Pound and Japanese Yen as reflected in the charts below:

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and ProceduresAs required by Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act, the Company has evaluated, with the participation of management, including the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, the effectiveness of the design and operation of its disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on such evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that such disclosure controls and procedures are effective, as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) of the Exchange Act.

The Company has a Disclosure Review Committee to assist in the quarterly evaluation of the Company’s internal disclosure controls and procedures and in the review of the Company’s periodic filings under the Exchange Act. The membership of the Disclosure Review Committee consists of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Apache President, Global Controller, General Counsel, Investor Relations and Global Insurance Officer, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Support, Vice President of Human Resources, Vice President of Marketing and Business Unit General Managers. This committee is advised by external counsel, particularly on SEC-related matters. Additionally, other members of the Company’s global management team advise the committee with respect to disclosure via a sub-certification process.

The Company believes, based on its knowledge, that the financial statements and other financial information included in this report fairly present, in all material respects, the financial condition, results of operations and cash flows of the Company as of and for the periods presented in this report. The Company is committed to both a sound internal control environment and to good corporate governance.

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with policies or procedures may deteriorate.

From time to time, the Company reviews the disclosure controls and procedures, and may from time to time make changes to enhance their effectiveness and to ensure that the Company’s systems evolve with its business.

Changes in Internal Control. The Company is in the process of extending its internal controls to the business operations of Apache. There were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the three months ended March 31, 2012 that materially affected, or were reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
