Company Report

Maintaining our $327 Fair Value Estimate as Synopsys Enters a Definitive Agreement to Acquire Ansys

Ansys is an industry leader in engineering simulation software, with simulation solvers across a wide range of disciplines--from electromagnetics to fluid dynamics. We think Ansys warrants a wide economic moat, thanks to high customer switching costs, network effect, and intangible assets--all supported by the complexity of problems Ansys seeks to solve. We think the company’s outlook is bright as it continues to prove its breadth in addressing diverse simulation problems as the nature of technological changes drastically.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Ansys’ increased go-to-market partnerships should improve margins even further as the strategy has little costs associated with the additional revenue, given the reliance on partners’ salespeople.

Bears

An economic downturn could put a halt to Ansys’ growth area revenue streams that tend to be more discretionary, like those related to Internet of Things and digital twins. Margins could take a hit given significant fixed costs in the short term.
