ANSYS, Inc. Announces Increase To Authorized Share Repurchase Program

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANSYS, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANSS) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved an increase to its authorized share repurchase program to a total of 3 million shares.

"This increase to the number of shares authorized for repurchase is a follow-on to last year's increase and considers the Company's repurchase activity throughout 2012. We believe this increase reflects our ongoing commitment to the creation of long-term stockholder value," said Jim Cashman, president and chief executive officer.

Share repurchases may be made by the Company from time to time in open market transactions at prevailing market prices. The actual timing, number and value of shares repurchased under the program will be determined by management in its discretion and will depend on a number of factors, including, among others, the availability of stock, general market and business conditions, the trading price of the stock and applicable legal requirements. The Company has no obligation to repurchase any shares under the authorization, and the repurchase program may be suspended, discontinued or modified at any time for any reason.
