Exa Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

BURLINGTON, Mass., Sept. 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exa ® Corporation (Nasdaq:EXA), a global innovator of fluids simulation solutions for product engineering, today announced financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, which ended July 31, 2012.

"We are pleased with the company's second quarter performance and strong financial results in our first quarter as a public company," said Stephen Remondi, President and Chief Executive Officer of Exa. "Our differentiated technology enables customers to perform accurate and detailed aerodynamic, thermal and acoustic simulations of their designs to improve product quality and performance while increasing efficiency of their design process. During the second quarter we made significant progress in deploying PowerFLOW deeper into our target markets. Existing customers expanded usage of PowerFLOW across their global engineering footprints and added simulation capacity as they begin to leverage advanced optimization techniques to seek further improvements in their designs. Both new and existing customers added simulation capabilities to tackle new challenges such as the reduction of fan noise and to meet tougher emissions regulations. Outside of ground transportation, we continued to make strong progress with early adopters in the aerospace market.

"We believe we are still in the early stages of penetrating the markets available to us for simulation-based solutions to replace costly and time-consuming physical prototypes. Our strategy to invest in our R&D team and field organization continues to progress and we believe that continued investments will help increase the value we can deliver to our customers and as a result solidify our position as a leading provider of simulation-based design technology, enabling us to continue our track record of profitable growth."
