ANSYS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
June 30, 2015
(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.
As of January 1, 2015, the Company began to operate as one segment when two legal entities merged and a third insignificant acquired segment was no longer separately reported internally. 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 or discontinuation of 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, 2014. The condensed consolidated December 31, 2014 balance sheet presented is derived from the audited December 31, 2014 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 and six months ended June 30, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for any future period.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents consist primarily of highly liquid investments such as deposits held at major banks and money market mutual funds. Cash equivalents are carried at cost, which approximates fair value. The Company’s cash and cash equivalent balances comprise the following:

3.
Acquisitions
Newmerical Technologies International
On February 3, 2015, the Company acquired certain assets and liabilities of Newmerical Technologies International ("NTI"), a leading developer of in-flight icing simulation software, for a purchase price of approximately $10.4 million in cash, plus retention vehicles and an adjustment for working capital. NTI's software can solve problems in aerodynamics, in-flight icing, heat transfer, fluid-structure interaction and wind engineering for customers in the aerospace, architectural, automotive and marine industries. The complementary combination is expected to accelerate development of new and innovative products to the marketplace while lowering design and engineering costs for customers.

7


The operating results of NTI have been included in the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements since February 3, 2015, the date of acquisition. The total consideration transferred was allocated to the assets and liabilities of NTI based on management's estimates of the fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The allocation included $3.6 million to identifiable intangible assets, including core technology and customer lists, to be amortized over periods between five and seven years, and $5.3 million to goodwill, which is partially tax-deductible. These amounts include measurement-period adjustments. The fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed are based on preliminary calculations and the estimates and assumptions for these items are subject to change as additional information about what was known and knowable at the acquisition date is obtained during the measurement period (up to one year from the acquisition date).
Pro forma results of operations have not been presented as the effects of the NTI business combination were not material to the Company's consolidated results of operations.
In valuing deferred revenue on the NTI balance sheet as of the acquisition date, the Company applied the fair value provisions applicable to the accounting for business combinations. Acquired deferred revenue with a historical carrying value of $0.5 million was ascribed no fair value on the opening balance sheet. As a result, the Company's post-acquisition revenue will be less than the sum of what would have otherwise been reported by ANSYS and NTI absent the acquisition. The impact on reported revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 was $0.2 million and $0.4 million, respectively. The expected impact on reported revenue is $0.1 million for the quarter ending September 30, 2015 and $0.5 million for the year ending December 31, 2015.
SpaceClaim Corporation
On April 30, 2014, the Company completed the acquisition of SpaceClaim Corporation ("SpaceClaim"), a leading provider of 3-D modeling technology. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company acquired SpaceClaim for a purchase price of $85.0 million, which was paid almost entirely in cash.
SpaceClaim's software provides customers with a powerful and intuitive 3-D direct modeling solution to author new concepts and then leverage the power of simulation to rapidly iterate on these designs to drive innovation. The broad appeal of the SpaceClaim technology can help the Company deliver simulation tools to any engineer in any industry.
The operating results of SpaceClaim have been included in the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements since April 30, 2014, the date of acquisition.

The assets and liabilities of SpaceClaim have been recorded based upon management's estimates of their fair market values as of the acquisition date.

Goodwill
$
48,453

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 SpaceClaim.
During the one-year measurement period since the SpaceClaim acquisition date, the Company adjusted the fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, with the offset recorded as a $4.8 million decrease to goodwill. These adjustments were based on refinements to assumptions used in the preliminary valuation of deferred revenue, accounts payable and other liabilities, and information about what was known and knowable as of the acquisition date in the calculation of the net deferred tax assets.
In valuing deferred revenue on the SpaceClaim balance sheet as of the acquisition date, the Company applied the fair value provisions applicable to the accounting for business combinations. Acquired deferred revenue with a historical carrying value of $3.3 million was ascribed a fair value of $0.7 million on the opening balance sheet. As a result, the Company's post-acquisition revenue will be less than the sum of what would have otherwise been reported by ANSYS and SpaceClaim absent the acquisition. The impact on reported revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 was $0.2 million and $0.5 million, respectively. The expected impact on reported revenue is $0.1 million for the quarter ending September 30, 2015 and $0.6 million for the year ending December 31, 2015.
Reaction Design
On January 3, 2014, the Company completed the acquisition of Reaction Design, a leading developer of chemistry simulation software. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company acquired Reaction Design for a purchase price of $19.1 million in cash. Reaction Design's solutions enable transportation manufacturers and energy companies to rapidly achieve their clean technology goals by automating the analysis of chemical processes via computer simulation and modeling solutions.
The operating results of Reaction Design have been included in the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements since January 3, 2014, the date of acquisition. The total consideration transferred was allocated to the assets and liabilities of Reaction Design based on management's estimates of the fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The allocation included $7.0 million to identifiable intangible assets, including core technology, customer lists and trade names, to be amortized over periods between two and eleven years, and $9.2 million to goodwill, which is not tax-deductible. These amounts include measurement-period adjustments. During the one-year measurement period since the Reaction Design

acquisition date, the Company adjusted the fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, with the offset recorded as an increase to goodwill of $1.9 million and a reduction in noncontrolling interest of $0.6 million. 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 assets.
In valuing deferred revenue on the Reaction Design balance sheet as of the acquisition date, the Company applied the fair value provisions applicable to the accounting for business combinations. Acquired deferred revenue with a historical carrying value of $2.3 million was ascribed no fair value on the opening balance sheet. As a result, the Company's post-acquisition revenue will be less than the sum of what would have otherwise been reported by ANSYS and Reaction Design absent the acquisition. The impact on reported revenue for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 was $0.1 million. The expected impact on reported revenue is $0.2 million for the year ending December 31, 2015.

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 awards are anti-dilutive, they are excluded from the calculation of diluted EPS.

(1) In accordance with accounting for business combinations, the Company recorded adjustments to goodwill for the effect of changes in the preliminary fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed during the measurement period (up to one year from the acquisition date) as the Company continued to consider what was known and knowable as of the acquisition date.
During the first quarter of 2015, the Company completed the annual impairment test for goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets and determined that these assets had not been impaired as of the test date, January 1, 2015. The Company tested the previously unamortized trade name discussed above for impairment during the first quarter of 2015 and determined that its fair value exceeded its carrying value, so no impairment was recorded. No other events or circumstances changed during the six months ended June 30, 2015 that would indicate that the fair values of the Company's reporting unit or indefinite-lived intangible asset are below their carrying amounts.

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's 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:

The cash equivalents in the preceding tables represent money market mutual funds.
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.
The contingent consideration in the tables above represents potential future payments related to the EVEN acquisition in accordance with the merger agreement. The net present value calculations for the contingent consideration include significant unobservable inputs in the assumption that all remaining payments will be made, and therefore the liabilities were classified as Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy.

11.
Contingencies and Commitments
The Company is subject to various investigations, claims and legal proceedings that arise in the ordinary course of business, including commercial disputes, labor and employment matters, tax audits, alleged infringement of intellectual property rights 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.

14


An Indian subsidiary of the Company received a formal inquiry after a service tax audit was held in 2011. The Company could incur tax charges and related liabilities, including those related to the service tax audit case, of approximately $6 million. The service tax issues raised in the Company’s notice are very similar to the case, M/s Microsoft Corporation (I) (P) Ltd. Vs Commissioner of Service Tax, New Delhi, wherein the Delhi Customs, Excise and Service Tax Appellate Tribunal (CESTAT) has passed a favorable ruling to Microsoft. The Company can provide no assurances on whether the Microsoft case’s favorable ruling will be challenged in higher courts or on the impact that the present Microsoft case’s decision will have on the Company’s audit case. The Company is uncertain as to when the service tax audit will be completed.
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 June 30, 2015. 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.

12.
New Accounting Guidance
Revenue from contracts with customers: In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) (ASU 2014-09). ASU 2014-09 supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance. Previous guidance requires an entity to recognize revenue when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred or services have been rendered, the seller's price to the buyer is fixed or determinable, and collectibility is reasonably assured. Under the new guidance, an entity is required to evaluate revenue recognition by identifying a contract with a customer, identifying the performance obligations in the contract, determining the transaction price, allocating the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract and recognizing revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation. This guidance will be effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that reporting period. In July 2015, the FASB voted in favor of a one-year delay in the required adoption date of this standard to annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Entities have the option of using a full retrospective, cumulative effect or modified approach to adopt the guidance. This update will impact the timing and amounts of revenue recognized. The Company is currently evaluating the effect that implementation of this update will have on its financial results upon adoption.

13.
Subsequent Events
On July 1, 2015, the Company completed the acquisition of Gear Design Solutions, Inc. ("Gear"), a provider of big data analytics used to solve problems confronting next-generation semiconductor and electronic system designs. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company acquired Gear for a purchase price of $30 million in cash and equity, plus retention vehicles and an adjustment for working capital. The operating results of Gear will be included in the Company's consolidated financial statements from the date of acquisition and, accordingly, Gear's operating results are not included in the financial results presented in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The acquisition will be accounted for as a business combination.

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 June 30, 2015, and the related condensed consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, and of cash flows for the six-month periods ended June 30, 2015 and 2014. 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, 2014, and the related consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the year then ended (not presented herein); and in our report dated February 26, 2015, 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, 2014 is fairly stated, in all material respects, in relation to the consolidated balance sheet from which it has been derived.

The Company's GAAP and non-GAAP results for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2014 were significantly impacted by a stronger U.S. Dollar. The Company's GAAP results for the three months ended June 30, 2015 reflect growth in revenue of 1.3%, operating income of 3.5% and diluted earnings per share of 1.5% as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2014. The Company's GAAP results for the six months ended June 30, 2015 reflect growth in revenue of 1.3%, operating income of 2.4% and diluted earnings per share of 2.4% as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2014. The Company experienced higher revenue in 2015 from growth in maintenance revenue, partially offset by decreased lease license and service revenues. The Company also experienced decreased operating expenses primarily due to cost reductions from foreign exchange translation as a result of the stronger U.S. Dollar.
The Company's non-GAAP results for the three months ended June 30, 2015 reflect increased revenue of 0.8%, decreased operating income of 0.1% and decreased diluted earnings per share of 1.2% as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2014. The Company's non-GAAP results for the six months ended June 30, 2015 reflect increased revenue of 0.8%, increased operating income of 0.4% and no change in diluted earnings per share as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2014. The non-GAAP results exclude the income statement effects of acquisition accounting adjustments to deferred revenue, stock-based compensation, acquisition-related amortization of intangible assets and transaction costs related to business combinations. For further disclosure regarding non-GAAP results, see the section titled "Non-GAAP Results" immediately preceding the section titled "Liquidity and Capital Resources."
The impacts on the Company's revenue and operating income due to the stronger U.S. Dollar for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 were as follows:

(1) Constant currency amounts exclude the effect of foreign currency fluctuations on the reported results. To present this information, the results for 2015 for entities whose functional currency is a currency other than the U.S. Dollar were converted to U.S. Dollars at rates that were in effect for 2014, rather than the actual exchange rates in effect for 2015.
The Company’s financial position includes $841.2 million in cash and short-term investments, and working capital of $680.0 million as of June 30, 2015.
Under the Company’s stock repurchase program, the Company repurchased 1,542,911 shares during the six months ended June 30, 2015 at an average price per share of $83.42, for a total cost of $128.7 million.
On February 3, 2015, the Company acquired certain assets and liabilities of NTI, a leading developer of in-flight icing simulation software, for a purchase price of approximately $10.4 million in cash. The operating results of NTI have been included in the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements since February 3, 2015, the date of acquisition.
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, materials and chemical processing, turbomachinery, consumer products, electronics, biomedical, energy, defense and others. Headquartered south of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the Company employed approximately 2,700 people as of June 30, 2015 and focuses 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 suite of simulation technologies through a global network of independent 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 also 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.

In North America, the Company's performance was most influenced by the aerospace and defense, automotive and high-tech industries. Organic market growth, economic improvement, fuel efficiency pressures, environmental regulation and demand for smart technology were the primary drivers of growth. Sales hiring, sales pipeline building and customer engagement activities in North America remain strong, as demand for innovation continues to drive simulation investments across a broad array of industries. Additionally, the Company continued to experience increased interest from its leading customers to expand their enterprise deployments of ANSYS software products.
Europe experienced continued economic and geo-political challenges, but also experienced improvements from ongoing sales hiring initiatives and stronger channel partner performance as compared to the first quarter of 2015. Germany was the strongest market in the region. This strength was offset by slower new business growth in France and continued weakness in Russia. From an industry perspective, the Company experienced strength in the automotive, industrial equipment, aerospace and electronics industries. Similar to North America, organic market growth, economic improvement, fuel and machine efficiency, and environmental regulation were the primary drivers of growth. The sales hiring and sales pipeline building activities continued to be a major focus. Solid customer renewal rates in Europe remained intact.
In the General International Area, which primarily consists of the Asia-Pacific region, the Company experienced strength in India driven by continued sales and channel execution. The Company also experienced strength in China, South Korea and Taiwan. However, the Company continued to experience slower growth in the Chinese state-owned enterprises. Investments by high-tech, aerospace and defense, and automotive electronics companies drove the performance. The focus on expanding the Company's channel partner network in the region, finding new and complementary ways to better address the market opportunity and increasing sales capacity and productivity are ongoing critical initiatives in 2015.

The Company’s revenue in the quarter ended June 30, 2015 increased 1.3% as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2014. The growth rate was adversely impacted by 8.3% due to a strengthening U.S. Dollar and was favorably impacted by the Company’s continued investment in its global sales, support and marketing organizations. Perpetual license revenue, which is derived primarily from new sales during the quarter, increased 1.1% as compared to the prior-year quarter. 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 4.3%.
With respect to revenue, on average for the quarter ended June 30, 2015, the U.S. Dollar was approximately 14.1% stronger, when measured against the Company’s primary foreign currencies, than for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. The net overall strengthening resulted in decreased revenue of $19.3 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2015, as compared with the same quarter of 2014. The impact on revenue was primarily driven by $12.3 million, $4.5 million, $0.9 million and $0.9 million of adverse impact due to a weakening Euro, Japanese Yen, British Pound and South Korean Won, respectively. The net overall strengthening also resulted in decreased operating income of $10.5 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2015, as compared with the same quarter of 2014.
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 in constant currency. 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.
The Company is starting to experience an increased interest by its customers in enterprise license agreements that often include longer term time-based licenses involving a larger number of the Company's software products. While these arrangements typically involve a higher overall transaction price, the revenue from these contracts is typically deferred and recognized over the period of the contract, resulting in increased deferred revenue and backlog. However, to the extent these types of contracts replace sales of perpetual licenses, there could be a near term adverse impact on software license and maintenance revenue growth.
International and domestic revenues, as a percentage of total revenue, were 62.9% and 37.1%, respectively, during the quarter ended June 30, 2015, and 66.3% and 33.7%, respectively, during the quarter ended June 30, 2014. The Company derived 24.2% and 24.5% of its total revenue through the indirect sales channel for the quarters ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.
In valuing deferred revenue on the balance sheets of the Company's recent acquisitions as of their respective acquisition dates, the Company applied the fair value provisions applicable to the accounting for business combinations, resulting in a reduction of deferred revenue as compared to its historical carrying amount. As a result, the Company's post-acquisition revenue will be less than the sum of what would have otherwise been reported by ANSYS and its subsidiaries absent the acquisitions. The impacts on reported revenue were $0.4 million and $1.6 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

20


The expected impact on reported revenue is $0.3 million and $1.4 million for the quarter ending September 30, 2015 and for the year ending December 31, 2015, respectively.
Deferred Revenue and Backlog:
Deferred revenue consists of billings made or payments received in advance of revenue recognition from lease license and maintenance agreements. The deferred revenue on the Company's condensed consolidated balance sheets does not represent the total value of annual or multi-year, noncancellable lease license and maintenance agreements. The Company's backlog represents installment billings for periods beyond the current quarterly billing cycle and customer orders received but not processed. The Company's deferred revenue and backlog as of June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014 consist of the following:

Software Licenses: The decrease in the cost of software licenses was primarily due to the following:
Decreased stock-based compensation of $0.3 million.
Cost reduction from foreign exchange translation of $0.3 million due to a stronger U.S. Dollar.
Amortization: The increase in amortization expense was primarily due to an increase in amortization of trade names.
Maintenance and Service: The decrease in maintenance and service costs was primarily due to a $2.4 million cost reduction related to foreign exchange translation, partially offset by an increase in severance costs of $0.8 million and other headcount-related costs of $0.5 million.
The improvement in gross profit was a result of the increase in revenue and the decrease in related cost of sales.

Selling, General and Administrative: The increase in selling, general and administrative costs was primarily due to the following:
Increased salaries and other headcount-related costs, including incentive compensation, of $3.8 million, primarily due to an increase in headcount.
Increased third-party commissions of $1.3 million.
These increases were partially offset by a $4.0 million cost reduction related to foreign exchange translation.
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 sales and services 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:
Increased salaries and other headcount-related costs of $2.0 million.
Increased SpaceClaim-related research and development expenses of $0.4 million, primarily as a result of three months of SpaceClaim activity in the current year as compared to two months of activity in the prior year.
These increases were offset by a $1.7 million cost reduction related to foreign exchange translation and decreased stock-based compensation of $0.7 million.
The Company has traditionally invested significant resources in research and development activities and intends to continue to make investments in this area, particularly as it relates to expanding the ease of use and capabilities of its flagship products and other products within its broad portfolio of simulation software, evolution of its ANSYS® Workbench platform, expanding its High-Performance Computing capabilities, ANSYS® AIM immersive user interface, robust design and ongoing integration of acquired technology.
Amortization: The decrease in amortization expense was primarily due to a net decrease in amortization of acquired customer lists and a cost reduction related to foreign exchange translation.

Income Tax Provision: The Company recorded income tax expense of $24.9 million and had income before income taxes of $87.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. During the quarter ended June 30, 2014, the Company recorded income tax expense of $20.8 million and had income before income taxes of $83.9 million. The effective tax rates were 28.6% and 24.9% for the second quarters of 2015 and 2014, respectively.
The increase in the effective tax rate is primarily due to tax benefits related to restructuring in a foreign jurisdiction and the reversal of uncertain tax benefits that occurred in 2014. These benefits did not reoccur in 2015. When compared to the federal and state combined statutory rate, the effective tax rates for the quarters ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 were favorably impacted by the domestic manufacturing deduction and tax benefits associated with the merger of the Company’s Japan subsidiaries in 2010. The quarterly benefit of approximately $3.1 million related to the merger of the Company's Japan subsidiaries will expire on September 30, 2015. The rates were also favorably impacted by the recurring item of lower statutory tax rates in many of the Company's foreign jurisdictions.
Net Income: The Company’s net income in the second quarter of 2015 was $62.3 million as compared to net income of $63.0 million in the second quarter of 2014. Diluted earnings per share was $0.68 in the second quarter of 2015 and $0.67 in the second quarter of 2014. The weighted average shares used in computing diluted earnings per share were 91.7 million and 94.3 million in the second quarters of 2015 and 2014, respectively.

The Company’s revenue in the six months ended June 30, 2015 increased 1.3% as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2014. The growth rate was adversely impacted by 7.8% due to a strengthening U.S. Dollar and was favorably impacted by the Company’s continued investment in its global sales, support and marketing organizations. 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 4.9%. Service revenue decreased 10.7% as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2014, primarily due to the impact of a stronger U.S. Dollar, as well as a smaller decrease in consulting services.
With respect to revenue, on average for the six months ended June 30, 2015, the U.S. Dollar was approximately 13.4% stronger, when measured against the Company’s primary foreign currencies, than for the six months ended June 30, 2014. The net overall strengthening resulted in decreased revenue of $34.8 million during the six months ended June 30, 2015, as compared with the six months ended June 30, 2014. The impact on revenue was primarily driven by $22.5 million, $8.5 million, $1.7 million and $1.0 million of adverse impact due to a weakening Euro, Japanese Yen, British Pound and South Korean Won, respectively. The net overall strengthening also resulted in decreased operating income of $18.8 million during the six months ended June 30, 2015, as compared with the six months ended June 30, 2014.
International and domestic revenues, as a percentage of total revenue, were 62.8% and 37.2%, respectively, during the six months ended June 30, 2015, and 66.1% and 33.9%, respectively, during the six months ended June 30, 2014. The Company derived 24.2% and 24.0% of its total revenue through the indirect sales channel for the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.
In valuing deferred revenue on the balance sheets of the Company's recent acquisitions as of their respective acquisition dates, the Company applied the fair value provisions applicable to the accounting for business combinations, resulting in a reduction of deferred revenue as compared to its historical carrying amount. As a result, the Company's post-acquisition revenue will be less than the sum of what would have otherwise been reported by ANSYS and its subsidiaries absent the acquisitions. The impacts on reported revenue were $1.0 million and $2.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Software Licenses: The decrease in the cost of software licenses was primarily due to the following:
Cost reduction related to foreign exchange translation of $0.5 million.
Decreased stock-based compensation of $0.4 million.
Decreased incentive compensation of $0.4 million.
These decreases were partially offset by increased third-party royalties of $0.3 million and the SpaceClaim-related cost of software licenses of $0.3 million, primarily as a result of six months of SpaceClaim activity in the current year as compared to two months of activity in the prior year.
Amortization: The increase in amortization expense was primarily due to an increase in amortization of trade names, partially offset by a cost reduction related to foreign exchange translation.
Maintenance and Service: The decrease in maintenance and service costs was primarily due to a $4.4 million cost reduction from foreign exchange translation, partially offset by an increase in severance costs of $0.8 million.
The improvement in gross profit was a result of the increase in revenue and the decrease in related cost of sales.

Increased salaries and other headcount-related costs of $6.2 million, primarily due to an increase in headcount.
Increased third-party commissions of $1.6 million.
Increased SpaceClaim-related selling, general and administrative expenses of $1.4 million, primarily as a result of six months of SpaceClaim activity in the current year as compared to two months of activity in the prior year.

Increased stock-based compensation of $0.8 million.
These increases were partially offset by a $7.2 million cost reduction related to foreign exchange translation.

Research and Development: The increase in research and development costs was primarily due to the following:
Increased SpaceClaim-related research and development expenses of $1.7 million, primarily as a result of six months of SpaceClaim activity in the current year as compared to two months of activity in the prior year.
Increased salaries and other headcount-related costs, partially offset by decreased incentive compensation, netting to $0.8 million.
Increased facilities and IT-related maintenance of $0.7 million.
Increased consulting expenses of $0.6 million.
These increases were offset by a $3.1 million cost reduction related to foreign exchange translation and decreased stock-based compensation of $0.8 million.
Amortization: The decrease in amortization expense was primarily due to a cost reduction related to foreign exchange translation and a net decrease in amortization of acquired contract backlog, partially offset by a net increase in amortization of acquired customer lists.

Income Tax Provision: The Company recorded income tax expense of $50.1 million and had income before income taxes of $168.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015. During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company recorded income tax expense of $43.8 million and had income before income taxes of $163.3 million. The effective tax rates were 29.7% and 26.8% for the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.
The increase in the effective tax rate is primarily due to tax benefits related to restructuring in a foreign jurisdiction and the reversal of uncertain tax benefits that occurred in 2014. These benefits did not reoccur in 2015. When compared to the federal and state combined statutory rate, the effective tax rates for the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 were favorably impacted by the domestic manufacturing deduction and tax benefits associated with the merger of the Company’s Japan subsidiaries in 2010. The quarterly benefit of approximately $3.1 million related to the merger of the Company's Japan subsidiaries will expire on September 30, 2015. The rates were also favorably impacted by the recurring item of lower statutory tax rates in many of the Company's foreign jurisdictions.
Net Income: The Company’s net income for the six months ended
