PARIS—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 25, 2007— Regulatory News:

Dassault Systemes (DS) (NASDAQ: DASTY) (Paris:DSY) reported financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2007.

Summary Second Quarter 2007 Financial Results

-- GAAP revenue up 14% in constant currencies and GAAP EPS up 24%

-- Non-GAAP revenue up 13% in constant currencies and non-GAAP EPS up 14%

-- DS raises 2007 revenue objective and reconfirms EPS objective

Bernard Charles, Dassault Systemes President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Dassault Systemes delivered a very solid second quarter with revenue and earnings coming in above objectives. Moreover, given the large customer transaction in the year-ago second quarter, achieving non-GAAP revenue growth of 13% in constant currencies and delivering non-GAAP EPS growth of 14% is rewarding.

"One of our most visible initiatives is the successful transformation of our PLM channel. Our results to date demonstrate that we are well in line with our plans, driving growth for CATIA and ENOVIA. At the same time, we continue to advance our technology and strategic roadmap. During the second quarter we launched our newest brand, 3DVIA, whose goal is to enable 3D to become a universal media for online product experiences. This new brand enlarges our addressable market to a wider community of users, to now include professional and consumer communities."

GAAP total revenue increased 9% to EUR 305.7 million (14% in constant currencies) and GAAP earnings per diluted share increased 24% to EUR 0.31 in the 2007 second quarter.

Non-GAAP total revenue increased 13% in constant currencies to EUR 308.8 million on constant currencies non-GAAP software revenue growth of 10% and services growth of 31%. Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share increased 14% to EUR 0.42 in the 2007 second quarter.

"Looking more closely at our second quarter activity, we saw strength in all geographic regions, including Europe and across all sales channels. Overall, software revenue increased 10% in constant currencies thanks to the strong growth of recurring revenue coming from new licensing activity and a growing installed base. New licenses revenue decreased year over year, but would have been up excluding the large customer transaction of the year-ago period. ENOVIA's results clearly illustrate the success of its product lines, with constant currency revenue growth of 32% in total and 23% before including MatrixOne.

"Importantly, our revenue results translated into strong growth in EPS in spite of the persistently strong currency headwinds," Thibault de Tersant, Senior Executive Vice President and CFO commented.

Non-GAAP PLM revenue increased 14% in constant currencies, with non-GAAP ENOVIA revenue up 32% in constant currencies. Non-GAAP Mainstream 3D revenue increased 11% in constant currencies in the 2007 second quarter. In line with the Company's expectations, new CATIA and SolidWorks seats totaled 20,457, level with the year-ago period, largely reflecting the very strong year-over-year comparison for CATIA. On a sequential basis, new CATIA and SolidWorks seats increased 4%.

Thanks to our strong second quarter performance and the inclusion of ICEM following completion of its acquisition, we are increasing our revenue objective.

We are reconfirming our earnings per share and operating margin objectives."
