Statements herein that are not historical facts but express expectations or objectives for the future, including but not limited to statements regarding the Company’s non-IFRS financial performance objectives, are forward-looking statements.
Such forward-looking statements are based on Dassault Systèmes management's current views and assumptions and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties. Actual results or performances may differ materially from those in such statements due to a range of factors. If global economic and business conditions continue to be volatile or deteriorate, the Company’s business results may not develop as currently anticipated and may decline below their earlier levels for an extended period of time. Furthermore, due to factors affecting sales of the Company’s products and services, there may be a substantial time lag between any change in global economic and business conditions and its impact on the Company’s business results.
In preparing such forward-looking statements, the Company has in particular assumed an average US dollar to euro exchange rate of US$1.40 per €1.00 for the first quarter and US$1.36 per €1.00 for the full year as well as an average Japanese yen to euro exchange rate of JPY140 to €1.00 for the 2014 first quarter and full year; however, currency values fluctuate, and the Company’s results of operations may be significantly affected by changes in exchange rates. The Company’s actual results or performance may also be materially negatively affected by numerous risks and uncertainties as described in the “Risk Factors” section of the 2012 Document de Référence, filed with the AMF on April 3, 2013, and also available on the Company’s website www.3ds.com.
Non-IFRS Financial Information
Readers are cautioned that the supplemental non-IFRS information presented in this press release is subject to inherent limitations. It is not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and should not be considered as a substitute for IFRS measurements. Also, the Company’s supplemental non-IFRS financial information may not be comparable to similarly titled non-IFRS measures used by other companies. Further specific limitations for individual non-IFRS measures, and the reasons for presenting non-IFRS financial information, are set forth in the Company’s annual report for the year ended December 31, 2012 included in the Company’s 2012 Document de Référence filed with the AMF on April 3, 2013.
In the tables accompanying this press release the Company sets forth its supplemental non-IFRS figures for revenue, operating income, operating margin, net income and diluted earnings per share, which exclude the effect of adjusting the carrying value of acquired companies’ deferred revenue, share-based compensation expense, the amortization of acquired intangible assets, other operating income and expense, net, certain one-time items included in financial revenue and other, net, and the income tax effect of the non-IFRS adjustments and certain one-time tax effects in 2013 and 2012. The tables also set forth the most comparable IFRS financial measure and reconciliations of this information with non-IFRS information.
Information in Constant Currencies
When the Company believes it would be helpful for understanding trends in its business, the Company provides percentage increases or decreases in its revenue (in both IFRS as well as non-IFRS) to eliminate the effect of changes in currency values, particularly the U.S. dollar and the Japanese yen, relative to the euro. When trend information is expressed herein "in constant currencies", the results of the "prior" period have first been recalculated using the average exchange rates of the comparable period in the current year, and then compared with the results of the comparable period in the current year.
