Tony Affuso, chairman, CEO and president of UGS, said, "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 … 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."
