Below please find a table outlining a discounted cash flow forecast for ANSS, in which we model out valuation assuming a variety of terminal growth rates. To summarize, we found that Ansys Inc ranked in the 19th percentile in terms of potential gain offered.

In terms of the factors that were most noteworthy in this DCF analysis for ANSS, they are:
