Dassault Systèmes Initiates 2019 Non-IFRS EPS Objective of €7.00
PARIS --(Business Wire)--
Systèmes (Paris:DSY) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE
Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock-Up and
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, unveils its 2019 non-IFRS
EPS objective of about €7.00 at its 2014 Capital Market Day which is
being held today, Friday, June 13, 2014, as previously disclosed.
The Capital Market Day, dedicated to analysts and investors, is hosted
at the Company's headquarters in Vélizy-Villacoublay, France, and
includes presentations by the senior executive management team. The
sessions are being recorded and will be available for replay in the
afternoon of June 13, 2014 by accessing http://www.3ds.com/investors/
"Over the last twenty-four months, Dassault Systèmes (News - Alert) has put together a
unique set of assets to address our expanded mission to harmonize
product, nature and life," commented Bernard Charlès, President and CEO.
"In addition, we have made significant, transformational changes to
align our business on our Industry Solutions Experience strategy, and
further reinforced our organization to address a much broader market
opportunity. With these critical components now in place, I believe we
are well positioned to double our non-IFRS earnings per diluted share
between 2014 and 2019."
Thibault de Tersant, Senior EVP and CFO, added, "We will be completing
this year our 2009-2014 growth plan and based upon our full year 2014
outlook of non-IFRS EPS of €3.45 to €3.50, or €3.75 to €3.80 restated at
2010 currency rates, on which has been established our 2009-2014 plan,
we are well on target to reach our goal of doubling non-IFRS EPS. Our
roadmap has reflected the combination of non-IFRS organic software
revenue CAGR of about 9% and non-IFRS total software revenue CAGR of
about 14% in constant currencies incorporating the acquisitions made
during the period.
"Looking ahead to our 2019 non-IFRS EPS goal of about €7.00,
representing about a 15% CAGR, it is top-line driven with multiple key
growth drivers. Our EPS goal incorporates current exchange rates for the
US dollar and Japanese yen and other major currencies."

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
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. The
Company's current outlook for 2014 takes into consideration, among other
things, an uncertain macroeconomic outlook, but if global economic and
business conditions further deteriorate, the Company's business results
may not develop as currently anticipated and may drop below their
earlier levels for an extended period of time. Furthermore, due to
factors affecting sales of the Company's products and services as
described above, there may be a substantial time lag between an
improvement in global economic and business conditions and an upswing in
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 second quarter and US$1.37 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 second quarter and full year; with respect to its
2019 EPS objective the Company has assumed an average US dollar to euro
exchange rate of US$1.37, an average Japanese yen to euro exchange rate
of JPY140 to €1.00 as well as a continuation of current exchange rates
for other major currencies in which the Company transacts business;
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 2013 Document de Référence,
filed with the AMF on March 28, 2014, and also available on the
Company's website www.3ds.com.
Non-IFRS Financial Information
Readers are cautioned that the 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
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, 2013 included in the Company's
2013 Document de Référence filed with the AMF on March 28, 2014.
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 information is expressed
herein "in constant currencies", the results of the "prior" period have
first been recalculated using the average exchange rates in the current
period, and then compared with the results of the comparable period in
the current period.
With respect to its 2009-2014 EPS objective, revenue and earnings per
share calculations in constant currencies are based upon taking the
estimated results for 2014 and recalculating them using the key exchange
rate assumptions initially outlined when the Company established its
2009-2014 growth plan.
