On October 27, 2011 Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA) reported IFRS unaudited financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2011, their third quarter corresponding to our nominal Q3 2011.

Summary Highlights

  • Revenue, operating margin and earnings per share above Company’s objectives
  • EPS up 34.8% (IFRS)
  • Increasing 2011 financial objectives as result of nominal Q3 outperformance   
  • Setting a high operating margin objective for 2011

Bernard Charlès, Dassault Systèmes President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased with our third quarter financial performance. Our increased revenue in constant currencies, was particularly gratifying given the very high year-ago comparison base. The quarter’s performance was driven by solid demand from customers and the benefits we are deriving from our addressable market expansion. With a dynamic first half and third quarter above our expectations, we are increasing our full year financial objectives.”                                                                                    

“The third quarter’s sales growth benefited from favorable dynamics across our three sales channels. In Enterprise direct sales, the value of V6 as an open integration platform was demonstrated by leading companies’ engagements in the automotive, high tech, energy and industrial equipment sectors as well as a number of mid-sized transactions. In addition to new V6 clients, several large customers have moved into the deployment phase with V6. Along with our direct sales channel, our SMB sales channels have been experiencing good demand, driven by the value of supply chain integration and this quarter was no different.”
