Bernard Charles, Dassault Systemes President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Dassault Systemes delivered a very solid first quarter with revenues up 25% in constant currencies and earnings per share increasing 26%. Strength across our product lines and across all geographic regions drove our results. This strong financial performance demonstrates the benefits of our focus on continued expansion of our SolidWorks channel capacity as well as further enhancement of the coverage and value of our PLM channel working with IBM. Good progress has been made on the ABAQUS integration front, thanks to our V5 infrastructure, with its open architecture, enabling the integration of a wide range of applications."

"The proposed acquisition of MatrixOne is ahead of our initial timetables, and subject to their shareholders' approval, we expect to close by mid-May. MatrixOne brings important assets to our product portfolio, as its capabilities support business process modeling and bring wider industry coverage, positioning us to extend our presence in such industries as high tech, semiconductors and consumer goods. Moreover, these assets will also benefit our partners through enterprise integration of heterogeneous systems to accelerate PLM implementations."
