Ansys to acquire optical simulation software provider Optis

Engineering simulation software provider ANSYS Inc. has agreed to acquire France-based Optis SAS, a software provider for scientific simulation of light, human vision and physics-based visualization.

The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter. The buyer said it will provide further details on the transaction and its impact on its 2018 financial outlook after closing.

"OPTIS is a technology leader, and together we'll deliver pervasive engineering simulation to a new set of companies while extending simulation to next-generation use cases like cameras and lidar development for autonomous vehicles," said Eric Bantegnie, vice president and general manager at Ansys.
