Commenting on the first fiscal quarter, Roland Thomas, Moldflow Corporation's president and CEO said, "We are pleased to report that both of our business divisions are operating in-line with our expectations. Overall, we demonstrated increased operational leverage and corresponding improvements in net income and earnings per share in our first fiscal quarter. Revenue for the first quarter in our Design Analysis Solutions division showed slight growth year-over-year, which is consistent with our expectations. We continued to hire new direct sales representatives and establish new distributors to further our geographic expansion objectives. Our Manufacturing Solutions division produced expanded gross margins and operating profit despite lower year-over-year revenues."

Business Outlook

The current business outlook is based on information as of November 6, 2006 and is current as of that day only. We continue to expect revenue for our full fiscal 2007 year to grow in the range of 5% to 7% when compared to fiscal 2006 and non-GAAP net income per diluted share for full fiscal year 2007 to increase between 35% and 50% as compared to fiscal 2006, resulting in non-GAAP net income per diluted share of approximately $0.68 to $0.75. Non-GAAP net income per diluted share excludes charges for share-based compensation expenses throughout the full fiscal year which are expected to be approximately $1.9 million, net of related tax effects. GAAP net income per diluted share is therefore expected to be between $0.53 and $0.60.

The Company has provided its fiscal 2007 net income and net income per diluted share guidance above. This guidance is provided on a non-GAAP basis. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share exclude estimated charges for share-based compensation costs. Because there are significant limitations in estimating the impact of share-based compensation costs, including but not limited to, the number of incentive shares that will be exercised and/or cancelled during the period, the fair market value of the Company's share price on the exercise dates, and the number and type of issuances that may be awarded in any year, the estimated charges and tax benefits associated with share-based issuances are unpredictable. For these reasons, the actual impact of share-based compensation on GAAP net income and GAAP net income per diluted share may differ materially from the estimated amounts included in the guidance above.

Use of Other Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Net income and net income per diluted share, excluding, as applicable, share-based compensation expenses and restructuring charges are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures. Moldflow is presenting these measures because management uses this information in evaluating the results of the Company's operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes and believes that this information provides additional insight into our operating results, as well as enables comparison of these results to prior periods. These measures should not be considered an alternative to measurements required by GAAP, such as net income and net income per diluted share, and should not be considered a measure of our liquidity. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other companies. With respect to the non-GAAP financial measures for the first quarter, the GAAP financial measures most directly comparable to each non-GAAP financial measure used or discussed in this press release and a reconciliation of the differences between each non-GAAP financial measure and the comparable GAAP financial measure are included in this press release and can be found on the Investors page of the Moldflow Web site at
