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. 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$1.35 per €1.00 for the third 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 third quarter and JPY140 to €1.00 for the 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 2013 Document de Référence, filed with the AMF on March 28, 2014, and also available on the Company’s website www.3ds.com.
