PLANO, Texas, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- UGS Corp., a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced third quarter 2006 results.

    Third quarter financial highlights include:
    -- EBITDA (defined below) was US$69.1 million, or an 8.3 percent growth
       over the same period a year earlier.  Net income (loss) for the third
       quarter was US$(7.4) million.
    -- Operating income was US$15.9 million and includes the impact of
       acquisition-related intangible amortization costs of US$38.5 million.
       Operating income in the same period a year earlier was US$19.3 million
       and included acquisition-related amortization costs of US$39.2 million.
    -- Total revenue increased to US$295.5 million, 1.8 percent growth over
       the same period a year earlier.
    -- Software revenue increased to US$223.1 million (including license and
       maintenance revenues), or 1.6 percent growth as compared to the third
       quarter 2005.
    -- Revenue amounts are not adjusted for the impact of deferred revenues
       written off in connection with acquisitions.  These write-offs had the
       effect of reducing third quarter 2006 revenues by US$0.3 million and
       2005 revenues by US$2.2 million.

    Year-to-date highlights include:
    -- EBITDA (defined below) was US$186.5 million, or a 25.3 percent growth

       nine months of the year was US$(33.0) million.
    -- Operating income was US$20.6 million and includes the impact of
       acquisition-related intangible amortization costs of US$116.8 million.
       Operating income in the same period a year earlier was US$36.3 million
       and included acquisition-related amortization costs of US$111.6
       million.
    -- Total revenue increased to US$866.0 million, 4.6 percent growth over
       the same period a year earlier.
    -- Software revenue increased to US$649.4 million (including license and
       maintenance revenues), or 5.7 percent growth as compared to the same
       period a year earlier.
    -- Revenue amounts are not adjusted for the impact of deferred revenues
       written off in connection with acquisitions.  These write-offs had the
       effect of reducing year-to-date 2006 revenues by US$0.7 million and
       2005 revenues for the same nine month period by US$10.2 million.

    Other financial highlights:
    -- Net cash from operating activities was US$111.6 million for the first
       nine months of the year.
    -- Long term debt as of Sept. 30, 2006, was US$1,155.3 million compared to
       a balance of US$1,212.0 million as of Dec. 31, 2005.  This includes a
       debt pay-down of US$62.3 million.

"We've continued to be successful at working our strategic plan while still focusing on expanding our EBITDA and cash flow, and retooling our sales engine. Our continued product excellence and focus on customer success earned us contracts or additional business in the quarter with such companies as Boeing, DaimlerChrysler, Unilever, Visteon, Bosch Siemens, Northrop Grumman Ship Systems, Bayer Healthcare and the Jet Propulsion Lab," said Tony Affuso, chairman, CEO and president of UGS. "These contracts reflect the confidence we are receiving across the board from the market, as highlighted most notably by our ranking in the leaders quadrant of the new Gartner Magic Quadrant.

"As always, we continue to focus on customer success, and as a result our retention rate is higher than ever and our maintenance revenue continues to grow solidly."

    Business Highlights
    -- UGS signed a new reseller agreement with Microsoft that extends the
       strategic alliance the two companies announced earlier this year.
       Under the new agreement, UGS becomes the first PLM company authorized
       to sell SQL Server 2005, Microsoft's flagship database software,
       directly to companies looking for a comprehensive PLM solution fully
       supported on the Microsoft(R) platform.  (see separate release)
    -- PRTM, internationally recognized as the leading management consulting
       firm to technology-driven companies, joined the UGS Partner Program as
       a UGS Consulting and Systems Integration Alliance Partner. (see
       separate release)
    -- In the mid-market and channel space, UGS recorded a 35 percent increase
       in its indirect channel license revenue year-over-year and met its
       year-end channel capacity goal to increase the channel by 50 percent.
       (see separate release)
    -- Ford Motor Company expanded its global deployment of Teamcenter to
       include Tecnomatix as the global manufacturing data management and
       manufacturing process planning system to support process driven product
       design.  This solution will enable the reduction of overall vehicle
       development cycle time by promoting concurrent engineering and globally
       distributing relevant data.
    -- An example of UGS' success in I-deas to NX migration was captured in a
       third quarter win with Larsen & Toubro Limited, India's largest
       technology-driven engineering and construction company.  Through the
       migration, Larsen & Toubro consolidated multiple CAD systems and
       expanded into PLM.
    -- Wanfeng Auto Holding Group, a leader in China's auto industry and the
       largest aluminum alloy wheel producer in Asia, selected UGS'
       Teamcenter(R) Express software for its first collaborative product data
       management (cPDM) system. (see separate release)

The company expects to realize revenue from the contracts highlighted above over multiple quarters.
