DS Reports Second Quarter 2009 Financial Results At High End of Company Objectives

*In constant currencies.

Bernard Charlès, Dassault Systèmes President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “The second quarter unfolded as anticipated. Revenue, margin and earnings results came in at the high end of our objectives, thanks to continued strong interest in DS solutions across a diversified number of industries, and to our cost savings program which is being implemented without impacting our R&D and sales capacities.

“On balance, business conditions during the second quarter were similar to the first quarter with customers remaining cautious with respect to new business investments. We started to see some increase in activity among larger companies, for which design excellence, simulation and compliance were significant drivers. For smaller companies, in general, it was not the case as we observed some slight further weakening from the first three months of the year.

“We are dedicated to the success of our customers with our investments in R&D. In June, we introduced Version 6 Release 2010 for the PLM market. We are just at the start of the adoption ramp of our V6 platform and software solutions and are therefore pleased by the number of wins we are seeing with more than 130 companies to date, representing the apparel, aerospace, automotive, energy, life sciences and high tech industries, among others.

“This quarter, we obtained a milestone decision, with Renault Group selecting our V6 PLM solution, which will be deployed as their global collaborative innovation platform for all functions involved in engineering and product development, thus replacing legacy PDM and reducing Renault Group’s cost of operations.

“In the Mainstream market, SolidWorks 2010 is set to be released in the fall of 2009 as scheduled. This latest release is uniquely positioned to offer users the ability to easily evaluate design and material alternatives for sustainable product development.”
