Dassault Systèmes Reports Double-digit Software Revenue and EPS Growth for 2012

“2012 represents an important juncture, with the unveiling of the new Dassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, and the launching of our Social Industry Experience strategy. It was a year of unprecedented transformation within the Company in order to best position us to access a market sized at $32 billion, doubling the current addressable market,” commented Bernard Charlès, Dassault Systèmes President and Chief Executive Officer. “We successfully launched value-driven Industry Solutions Experience to cover key client processes across the different industries we address.”

“The reception of 3DEXPERIENCE as the next Company horizon was very good, with key customers wins to illustrate it. In addition, thanks to our indirect channels capacity extension, we won 20,000 new customers in 2012, a record so far, and thanks to our brands, we reached 10 million users.”

“Finally, 2012 was also a record year financially for both revenue and earnings. We crossed the €2 billion revenue milestone thanks to non-IFRS software revenue growth of 10% in constant currencies and delivered non-IFRS earnings per share growth of 15%, demonstrating our ability to execute on our ambitious roadmap for the future while also maintaining a strong operational focus.”

*In constant currencies.

  • IFRS and non-IFRS total revenue increased 9% primarily driven by software revenue growth of 9% (IFRS) and 10% (non-IFRS), respectively. Software revenue represented 91% of total revenue. Services and other revenue increased 7% and the services gross margin improved to 5.7%. 2012 results include the acquisition of Gemcom and the divestiture of Transcat PLM GmbH. Excluding the six-month impact of the Gemcom acquisition as well as the sale of Transcat PLM GmbH, Dassault Systèmes non-IFRS revenue growth would have been 8% (All growth comparisons are in constant currencies).
  • Regionally, Asia was the best performing with non-IFRS revenue increasing 14%, reflecting a further return to investment by Japanese customers and strong growth in China and Korea. Despite the impact of the macro-environment softening which began to affect regional results in Europe in the third quarter, full year performance was solid with revenue higher by 8%, led by Germany and France. In the Americas, there were a number of important wins and contract renewals during the year in the Company’s PLM sales channels and good growth in its Professional channel leading to a 7% increase in total revenue for that region. High growth countries posted 16% revenue growth on broad strength (All growth comparisons are in constant currencies).
  • New business activity was reflected in both new licenses revenue and rental licensing revenue which recorded a 17% growth and is a component of recurring software revenue. IFRS and non-IFRS new licenses revenue increased 9% in constant currencies with new licenses revenue highest in Asia, followed by Europe and the Americas. SIMULIA, CATIA and SOLIDWORKS reported strong new licenses revenue growth.
  • Recurring software revenue increased 9% (IFRS) and 10% (non-IFRS) in constant currencies benefiting from growth in maintenance from new licensing activity, strong renewal rates and growth in rental licensing. SIMULIA, ENOVIA and SOLIDWORKS reported strong recurring software revenue growth. Recurring software revenue represented 71% of total software revenue in 2012.
  • The Company reported strong growth in operating income principally reflecting higher revenue. IFRS operating income increased 17% to €501.0 million and the operating margin improved 70 basis points to 24.7%. On a non-IFRS basis, operating income increased 19% to €644.3 million. The non-IFRS operating margin expanded 120 basis points to 31.6%, reflecting revenue growth and improved operating leverage.
  • Net income per diluted share increased 14% to €2.66 (IFRS) and 15% to €3.37 (non-IFRS) per share. Growth in IFRS and non-IFRS earnings per share reflected higher revenue, operating margin expansion and growth in financial income offset in part by a higher effective tax rate.
  • PLM software revenue increased 8% (IFRS) and 9% (non-IFRS). CATIA software revenue increased 5% led by Asia. ENOVIA software revenue increased 7%. Other PLM software revenue increased 19% (IFRS) and 22% (non-IFRS) led by SIMULIA and included GEOVIA, a new brand (All growth comparisons are in constant currencies).
  • SOLIDWORKS software revenue increased 12% in constant currencies on sales of its design suite as well as sales of product data management, simulation, and on increased sales capacity. New SOLIDWORKS commercial seats licensed increased 11% to a record 52,987 seats. 2012 also marks a major new milestone with more than two million total SOLIDWORKS commercial and educational seats sold to date.
