Name of Grantee: __
No. of Restricted Stock Units Granted:
Pursuant to the Fifth Amended and Restated ANSYS, Inc. 1996 Stock Option and Grant Plan (the “Plan”) as amended through the date hereof, ANSYS, Inc. (the “Company”) hereby grants the number of Restricted Stock Units listed above (the “Award”) to the Grantee named above. Each “Restricted Stock Unit” shall relate to one share of Common Stock par value $.01 per share (the “Stock”) of the Company, subject to the restrictions and conditions set forth in this Restricted Stock Unit Agreement (the “Agreement”) and in the Plan.
1.Restrictions on Transfer of Award. The Award shall not be sold, transferred, pledged, assigned or otherwise encumbered or disposed of by the Grantee, until shares of Stock have been issued pursuant to Section 3 hereof.
2.Vesting of Restricted Stock Units.
(a) The Restricted Stock Units shall become vested pursuant to the following schedule (each, a “Vesting Date”), so long as the Grantee continues to be employed by the Company on each such date;
Incremental Number of
Restricted Stock Units Vested
__VEST_DATE_PERIOD1,’Month DD, YYYY’_-_
__VEST_DATE_PERIOD2,’Month DD, YYYY’_-_
__VEST_DATE_PERIOD3,’Month DD, YYYY’_-_
(b) Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in the event that this Award is assumed in the sole discretion of the parties to a Transaction (as defined in Section 3 of the Plan) or is continued by the Company and thereafter remains in effect following such Transaction, then this Award shall be deemed vested in full upon the date on which the Grantee’s employment with the Company and its subsidiaries or successor entities terminates if (i) such termination occurs within 18 months of such Transaction and (ii) such termination is by either the Company without Cause (as defined below), or by the Grantee if such termination by the Grantee is preceded during such 18-month period by any material adverse modification of the duties, principal employment location or compensation of the Grantee without
his or her consent, subject, however, to the following sentence. In addition and notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in the event that the Grantee is not offered employment by the Company and its subsidiaries or any successor entities following a Transaction on substantially the same or better terms (including, without limitation, duties and compensation) than those in effect immediately prior to such Transaction, then this Award shall be deemed vested in full upon the date on which the Grantee’s employment with the Company and its subsidiaries terminates. For this purpose, “Cause” shall have the meaning given such term in the employment, severance or similar agreement between the Company and the Grantee and, in the absence of any such agreement, shall mean a determination by the Company that the Grantee shall be dismissed as a result of (i) any material breach by the Grantee of any agreement between the Grantee and the Company; (ii) the conviction of, indictment for or plea of nolo contendere by the Grantee to a felony or a crime involving moral turpitude; or (iii) any material misconduct or willful and deliberate non-performance (other than by reason of disability) by the Grantee of the Grantee’s duties to the Company.
3.Issuance of Shares of Stock.
(a) Subject to the terms of the Plan and this Agreement, each Restricted Stock Unit entitles the Grantee to receive one share of Stock as soon as reasonably practicable following the Vesting Date.
(b) As soon as reasonably practicable following each Vesting Date, but in no event later than 60 days after the end of the year in which such Vesting Date occurs, the Company shall direct its transfer agent to issue to the Grantee the number of shares of Stock equal to the incremental number of Restricted Stock Units that became vested on such Vesting Date in satisfaction of the Award via the Company’s dedicated on-line broker.
(c) Shares of Stock shall be issued and delivered to the Grantee in accordance with Section 3(b) upon compliance to the satisfaction of the Committee with all requirements under applicable laws or regulations in connection with such issuance and with the requirements hereof and of the Plan. The determination of the Committee as to such compliance shall be final and binding on the Grantee.
(d) Until such time as shares of Stock are issued to the Grantee pursuant to Section 3(b), the Grantee shall have no rights as a stockholder with respect to any shares of Stock underlying the Restricted Stock Units, including but not limited to any voting rights.
4.Termination of Employment. Except as provided in Section 2(b) hereof, if the Grantee’s employment by the Company or its subsidiaries is terminated for any reason or under any circumstances, this Award shall no longer vest with respect to any unvested Restricted Stock Units.
5.Effect of Certain Transactions. Subject to Section 2(b) hereof, in the case of a Transaction (as defined in Section 3 of the Plan), the unvested portion of this Award shall terminate on the effective date of such Transaction, unless provision is made in such Transaction in the sole discretion of the parties thereto for the assumption or continuation of the unvested Award or the substitution for the unvested Award of new restricted stock units of the successor person or entity or a parent or subsidiary thereof, with appropriate adjustment as to the number and kind of shares, as provided in the Plan.
6.Incorporation of Plan. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, this Award shall be subject to and governed by all the terms and conditions of the Plan, including the powers of the Committee set forth in Section 2(b) of the Plan. Capitalized terms used herein shall have the meaning specified in the Plan, unless a different meaning is specified herein.
7.Transferability. This Award is personal to the Grantee, is non-assignable and is not transferable by Grantee in any manner, by operation of law or otherwise, other than by will or the laws of descent and distribution. The Stock to be issued upon the vesting of this Award to the Grantee shall be issued, during the Grantee’s lifetime, only to the Grantee.
8.Tax Withholding. Any issuance of shares of Stock to a Grantee pursuant to this Award shall be subject to applicable tax withholding requirements. The Grantee shall, not later than the date as of which the transfer of shares of Stock pursuant to this Award becomes a taxable event for Federal income tax or other applicable withholding tax purposes, pay to the Company or make arrangements satisfactory to the Committee for payment of any Federal, state, local, non U.S., or other taxes required by law to be withheld on account of such taxable event. The Company shall have the authority to cause the required minimum tax withholding amount to be satisfied, in whole or in part, by withholding from shares of Stock to be issued to the Grantee a number of shares of Stock with an aggregate Fair Market Value that would satisfy such minimum withholding obligation.
9.No Obligation to Continue Employment. Neither the Company nor any Subsidiary is obligated by or as a result of the Plan or this Award to continue the Grantee in employment and neither the Plan nor this Award shall interfere in any way with the right of the Company or any Subsidiary to terminate the employment of the Grantee at any time, in accordance with applicable law.
10.Non-Competition, Non-Solicitation. As additional consideration for this Award to the Grantee, the Grantee hereby agrees that, if at any time during and for a period of one year after the termination of his or her employment with the Company or any Subsidiary no matter what the cause of that termination, he or she engages for any reason, directly or indirectly, whether as owner, part-owner, shareholder, member, partner, director, officer, trustee, employee, agent or consultant, or in any other capacity, on behalf of himself or herself or any firm, corporation or other business organization other than the Company and its subsidiaries in any one or more of the following activities:
(a) the development, marketing, solicitation, or selling of any product or service that is competitive with the products or services of the Company, or products or services that the Company has under development or that are subject to active planning at any time during Grantee’s employment;
(b) the use of any of the Company’s confidential or proprietary information, copyrights, patents or trade secrets which was acquired by the Grantee as an employee of the Company and its subsidiaries; or
(c) any activity for the purpose of inducing, encouraging, or arranging for the employment or engagement by anyone other than the Company and its subsidiaries of any employee, officer, director, agent, consultant, or sales representative of the Company and its subsidiaries or attempt to engage any of them in a manner which would deprive the Company and its subsidiaries of their services or place them in a conflict of interest with the Company and its subsidiaries;
then (i) this Award shall terminate effective on the date on which he or she first engages in such activity, unless terminated sooner by operation of any other term or condition of this Award or the Plan, and (ii) all shares of Stock issued to the Grantee pursuant to this Award shall become immediately due and payable by Grantee to the Company and if such shares of Stock have been sold by the Grantee, an amount equal to the proceeds from such sale shall become immediately due and payable by the Grantee to the Company. Grantee acknowledges and agrees that the activities set forth in this Section 10(a)-(c) are adverse to the Company’s interests, and that it would be inequitable for Grantee to benefit from this Award should Grantee engage in any such activities during or within one year after termination of his or her employment with the Company.
The Grantee may be released from his or her obligations as stated above only if the Committee (or its duly appointed agent) determines in its sole discretion that such action is in the best interests of the Company and its subsidiaries.
11.Section 409A of the Code. This Agreement shall be interpreted in such a manner that the Award shall be exempt from the requirements of Section 409A of the Code as a “short-term deferral” as described in Section 409A of the Code.
12.Integration. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to this Award and supersedes all prior agreements and discussions between the parties concerning such subject matter.
13.Data Privacy. The Grantee hereby explicitly and unambiguously consents to the collection, use and transfer, in electronic or other form, of the Grantee’s personal data as described in this Agreement and any other Award grant materials by and among, as applicable, the company employing the Grantee (the “Employer”), the Company and any other Subsidiary for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Grantee’s participation in the Plan.
The Grantee understands that the Company and the Employer may hold certain personal information about the Grantee, including, but not limited to, the Grantee’s name, home address and telephone number, date of birth, social insurance number or other identification number, salary, nationality, job title, any shares of Stock or directorships held in the Company, details of all awards or
any other entitlement to shares of Stock awarded, canceled, exercised, vested, unvested or outstanding in the Grantee’s favor (“Data”), for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Plan.
The Grantee understands that Data will be transferred to the stock plan service provider selected by the Company, which is assisting the Company with the implementation, administration and management of the Plan. The Grantee understands that the recipients of the Data may be located in the United States or elsewhere, and that the recipient’s country (e.g., the United States) may have different data privacy laws and protections than the Grantee’s country. The Grantee understands that he or she may request a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of the Data by contacting his or her local human resources representative. The Grantee authorizes the Company, the stock plan service provider and any other possible recipients which may assist the Company (presently or in the future) with implementing, administering and managing the Plan to receive, possess, use, retain and transfer the Data, in electronic or other form, for the sole purposes of implementing, administering and managing the Grantee’s participation in the Plan. The Grantee understands that Data will be held only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage the Grantee’s participation in the Plan. The Grantee understands that he or she may, at any time, view Data, request additional information about the storage and processing of Data, require any necessary amendments to Data or refuse or withdraw the consents herein, in any case without cost, by contacting in writing his or her local human resources representative. Further, the Grantee understands that he or she is providing the consents herein on a purely voluntary basis. If the Grantee does not consent, or if the Grantee later seeks to revoke his or her consent, his or her employment status or service and career with the Employer will not be adversely affected; the only adverse consequence of refusing or withdrawing consent is that the Company would not be able to grant the Grantee the Award or other equity awards or administer or maintain such awards. Therefore, the Grantee understands that refusing or withdrawing his or her consent may affect the Grantee’s ability to participate in the Plan. For more information on the consequences of the Grantee’s refusal to consent or withdrawal of consent, the Grantee understands that he or she may contact his or her local human resources representative.
14.Nature of Grant. In accepting the Award, the Grantee acknowledges, understands and agrees that:
(a) the Plan is established voluntarily by the Company, it is discretionary in nature and it may be modified, amended, suspended or terminated by the Company at any time, to the extent permitted by the Plan;
(b) the grant of the Award is voluntary and occasional and does not create any contractual or other right to receive future grants;

(h) the future value of the shares of Stock underlying the Award is unknown, indeterminable, and cannot be predicted with certainty;
(i) no claim or entitlement to compensation or damages shall arise from forfeiture of the Award resulting from the termination of the Grantee’s employment relationship (for any reason whatsoever, whether or not later found to be invalid or in breach of employment laws in the jurisdiction where the Grantee is employed or the terms of the Grantee’s employment agreement, if any);
(j) unless otherwise provided in the Plan or by the Company in its discretion, the Award and the benefits evidenced by this Agreement do not create any entitlement to have the Award or any such benefits transferred to, or assumed by, another company nor to be exchanged, cashed out or substituted for, in connection with any corporate transaction affecting the Company’s Stock; and
(k) neither the Employer, the Company nor any other Subsidiary shall be liable for any foreign exchange rate fluctuation between the Grantee’s local currency and the United States Dollar that may affect the value of the Award or of any amounts due to the Grantee pursuant to settlement of the Award or the subsequent sale of any shares of Stock acquired upon settlement.
15.No Advice Regarding Grant. The Company is not providing any tax, legal or financial advice, nor is the Company making any recommendations regarding the Grantee’s participation in the Plan, or the Grantee’s acquisition or sale of the underlying shares of Stock. The Grantee is hereby advised to consult with his or her own personal tax, legal and financial advisors regarding his or her participation in the Plan before taking any action related to the Plan.

Notices hereunder shall be mailed or delivered to the Company at its principal place of business and shall be mailed or delivered to the Grantee at the address on file with the Company or, in either case, at such other address as one party may subsequently furnish to the other party in writing.
18.Amendment. Pursuant to Section 18 of the Plan, the Committee may at any time amend or cancel any unvested portion of this Award, but no such action may be taken that adversely affects the Grantee’s rights under hereunder without the Grantee’s consent.
19.Severability. If any provision(s) hereof shall be determined to be illegal or unenforceable, such determination shall in no manner affect the legality or enforceability of any other provision hereof.
20.Counterparts. For the convenience of the parties and to facilitate execution, this Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which shall constitute one and the same document.

The following provision will apply to residents of Quebec:
Language Consent. The parties to the Agreement have expressly required that the Agreement and all documents and notices relating to the Agreement be drafted in English.
Les parties aux présentes ont expressément exigé que la présente convention et tous les documents et avis qui y sont afférents soient rédigés en anglais.
Additional Restrictions on Resale. In addition to the restrictions on resale and transfer noted in Plan materials, securities purchased under the Plan may be subject to certain restrictions on resale imposed by Canadian provincial securities laws. Participants are encouraged to seek legal advice prior to any resale of such securities. In general, Participants resident in Canada may resell their securities in transactions carried out on exchanges outside of Canada.
Tax Reporting. The Tax Act and the regulations thereunder require a Canadian resident individual (among others) to file an information return disclosing prescribed information where, at any time in a tax year, the total cost amount of such individual’s “specified foreign property” (which includes shares) exceeds Cdn.$100,000. Participants should consult their own tax advisor regarding this reporting requirement.

You understand that you must repatriate any proceeds from the sale of Shares acquired upon vesting of the Restricted Stock Units to India and convert the proceeds into local currency within 90 days of receipt. You will receive a foreign inward remittance certificate (“FIRC”) from the bank where you deposit the foreign currency. You should maintain the FIRC as evidence of the repatriation of funds in the event the Reserve Bank of India or your employer requests proof of repatriation.
Tax Information. The amount subject to tax at vesting may partially be dependent upon a valuation of Shares from a Merchant Banker in India. The Company has no responsibility or obligation to obtain the most favorable valuation possible nor obtain valuations more frequently than required under Indian tax law.
Terms and Conditions
Data Privacy. In addition to the data privacy provision that is set forth above, by accepting the grant of Restricted Stock Units, you also consent to the following additional data privacy-related terms:
I am aware that providing the Company and my employer with Data is necessary for participation in the Plan and that my refusal to provide such Data may affect my ability to participate in the Plan. The Controller of personal data processing is Ansys, Inc., with registered offices at 2600 Ansys Drive, Canonsburg, PA 15317 and, pursuant to D.lgs 196/2003, its representative in Italy is ANSYS Italia Srl with registered offices at via G. B. Pergolesi n. 25 20124 Milano MI Italy.
I understand that I may at any time exercise the rights acknowledged by Section 7 of Legislative Decree June 30, 2003 n.196, including, but not limited to, the right to access, delete, update,
request the rectification of my Data and cease, for legitimate reasons, the data processing. Furthermore, I am aware that my Data will not be used for direct marketing purposes.
Exchange Control Information. By September 30th of each year, the Participants are required to report on their annual tax return (Form RW) any foreign investments (including proceeds from the sale of Shares acquired upon vesting) held outside of Italy if the investment may give rise to income in Italy. However, deposits and bank accounts held outside of Italy only need to be disclosed if the value of the assets exceeds €10,000 during any part of the tax year.
With respect to Shares received upon vesting of the Restricted Stock Units, the Participants must report (i) the value of the Shares at the beginning of the year or on the day the Participant acquired the Shares, whichever is later; and (ii) the value of the Shares when sold, or if the Participant still owns the Shares at the end of the year, the value of the Shares at the end of the year. The value to be reported is the fair market value of the Shares on the applicable dates mentioned above.
Exchange Control Information. If you acquire Shares valued at more than ¥100,000,000 in a single transaction, you must file a Securities Acquisition Report with the Ministry of Finance through the Bank of Japan within 20 days of the acquisition of the Shares.
You acknowledge that the grant of RSUs, the Plan and all other materials you may receive regarding participation in the Plan do not constitute an advertising or offering of securities in Russia. The issuance of securities pursuant to the Plan has not and will not be registered in Russia and therefore, the securities described in any Plan-related documents may not be used for offering or public circulation in Russia.
You further acknowledge that in no event will Shares that may be issued to you with respect to the RSUs be delivered to you in Russia; all Shares issued to you with respect to the RSUs will be maintained on your behalf in the United States.
You are not permitted to sell Shares directly to a Russian legal entity or resident.
Exchange Control Information. If you receive US$500,000 or more from the sale of underlying Shares, Korean exchange control laws require you to repatriate the proceeds to South Korea within 18 months of sale.
Exchange Control Information. All acquisitions of foreign shares by Spanish residents must comply with exchange control regulations in Spain. Because of foreign investment requirements, the acquisition of Shares upon vesting of the Restricted Stock Units must be declared for statistical purposes to the Spanish Direccion General de Politica Comercial y de Inversiones Extranjeras (the “DGPCIE”). If you acquire Shares through the use of a Spanish financial institution, that institution will automatically make the declaration to the DGPCIE for you. Otherwise, you must make the declaration by filing a form with the DGPCIE.
If you import the Shares acquired upon vesting of the Restricted Stock Units into Spain, you must declare the importation of the share certificates to the DGPCIE.
In addition, you must also file a declaration of the ownership of the Shares with the Directorate of Foreign Transactions each January while the shares are owned. These filings are made on standard forms furnished by the Directorate of Foreign Transactions.
When you receive any foreign currency payments (i.e., as a result of the sale of the Shares), you must inform the institution receiving the payment of the basis upon which such payment is made and provide certain specific information (e.g., name, address, and fiscal identification number; the name and corporate domicile of the company; the amount of the payment; the type of foreign currency received; the country of origin; and the reason for the payment).
Tax Reporting. If you hold assets (e.g., cash or shares in a bank or brokerage account) or rights outside Spain that exceed €50,000 per type of asset, you must file a Form 720 with the Spanish Tax Authorities by April 30th of each year.
Securities Law Information. The offer of the Restricted Stock Units is considered a private offering in Switzerland and is not subject to registration in Switzerland.
Exchange Control Information. Taiwan’s foreign exchange control regulations may have an impact on the grant and vesting of the Restricted Stock Units as well as the repatriation of capital gains realized from the holding or sale of the underlying Shares. Under current foreign exchange regulations, a Taiwanese resident can remit up to US $5 million (or an equivalent amount of other foreign currencies) per year into or out of Taiwan without prior approval from the Taiwan Central Bank.
If the transaction amount is TWD500,000 or more in a single transaction, you must submit a Foreign Exchange Transaction Form. If the transaction amount is US$500,000 or more in a single transaction, you must also provide supporting documentation to the satisfaction of the remitting bank.
