UGS Reports Q2 2006 Revenue

PLANO, Texas, Aug. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- UGS Corp., a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced second quarter 2006 results.

    Second quarter financial highlights include:
    - Total revenue increased to US$296.7 million, 4 percent growth over the
      same period a year earlier.
    - Software revenue increased to US$221.2 million (including license and
      maintenance revenues), or 5 percent growth as compared to the second
      quarter 2005.
    - Total revenue and software revenue increased in each geographic region
      compared to the same period in 2005.
    - cPDM software revenue grew 18 percent over the same period a year
      earlier.  (cPDM represents Teamcenter software revenue and excludes
      digital manufacturing software revenue.).
    - EBITDA (defined below) was US$69.3 million, or an 80 percent growth over
      the same period a year earlier.
    - Operating income increased to US$10.1 million and includes the impact of
      acquisition-related intangible amortization costs of US$39.1 million.
    - These amounts are not adjusted for the impact of deferred revenues
      written off in connection with acquisitions.  These write-offs had the
      effect of reducing second quarter 2006 revenues by US$0.2 million and
      2005 revenues by US$3.4 million.

"We continue our drive to sustain solid growth and improve operating income while we focus on executing our strategic plan to position the company for enhanced growth," said Tony Affuso, chairman, CEO and president of UGS. "As we complete the reorganization of our sales force to focus on verticals and mid-market channels, we are currently adding needed sales capacity. We have seen early progress in our mid-market channel strategy marked by strong double digit software growth in the quarter. During the second quarter we also continued to receive third-party accolades for our software and service through such prestigious designations as being named a Caterpillar Strategic Supplier, the Honda Engineering Supplier of the Year Award, Ford's Q1 Certification, GM's Supplier of the Year Award and Frost & Sullivan's PLM Company of the Year Award."

    Business Highlights

    - UGS mid-market approach continued to gain steam through UGS Velocity
      Series(TM) portfolio wins as well as increased channel expansion.
      Second quarter indirect channel revenue increased by 30 percent, and the
      company signed more than 50 new partners in the first half of the year.
