Statements herein that are not historical facts but express expectations or objectives for the future, including but not limited to statements regarding the Company’s non-IFRS financial performance objectives, are forward-looking statements.
Such forward-looking statements are based on DS management's current views and assumptions and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties. Actual results or performances may differ materially from those in such statements due to a range of factors. In preparing such forward-looking statements, the Company has in particular assumed an average U.S. dollar to euro exchange rate of US$1.38 per €1.00 and an average Japanese yen to euro exchange rate of JPY128 to €1.00 for the 2009 full year; however, currency values fluctuate, and the Company’s results of operations may be significantly affected by changes in exchange rates. The Company has tried to factor in the potential impact of the current global economic crisis on its 2009 second quarter and full year objectives, but conditions could worsen. Further the Company has assumed that its increased responsibility for both indirect and direct PLM sales channels, and the resulting commercial and management challenges, will not cause it to incur substantial unanticipated costs and inefficiencies. The Company’s actual results or performance may also be materially negatively affected by the current global economic crisis, difficulties or adverse changes affecting its partners or its relationships with its partners, including the Company’s longstanding, strategic partner, IBM; new product developments and technological changes; errors or defects in its products; growth in market share by its competitors; and the realization of any risks related to the integration of any newly acquired company and internal reorganizations. Unfavorable changes in any of the above or other factors described in the Company’s regulatory reports, including the Document de référence, as filed with the French “Autorité des marchés financiers” (AMF) on April 2, 2009, could materially affect the Company’s financial position or results of operations.
Non-IFRS Financial Information
Readers are cautioned that the supplemental non-IFRS (previously referred to as “adjusted IFRS”) information presented in this press release is subject to inherent limitations. It is not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and should not be considered as a substitute for IFRS measurements. Also, the Company’s supplemental non-IFRS financial information may not be comparable to similarly titled non-IFRS measures used by other companies. Further specific limitations for individual non-IFRS measures, and the reasons for presenting non-IFRS financial information, are set forth in the Company’s annual report for the year ended December 31, 2008 in the Company’s 2008 Document de référence filed with the AMF on April 2, 2009.
In the tables accompanying this press release the Company sets forth its supplemental non-IFRS figures for revenue, operating income, operating margin, net income and diluted earnings per share, which exclude the effect of adjusting the carrying value of acquired companies’ deferred revenue, the expenses for the amortization of acquired intangible assets and stock-based compensation expense (in each case, as explained respectively in the Company’s 2008 Document de référence). The tables also set forth the most comparable IFRS financial measure and reconciliations of this information with non-IFRS information.
Information in Constant Currencies
When the Company believes it would be helpful for understanding trends in its business, the Company provides percentage increases or decreases in its revenue (in both IFRS as well as non-IFRS) to eliminate the effect of changes in currency values, particularly the U.S. dollar and the Japanese yen, relative to the euro. When trend information is expressed herein "in constant currencies", the results of the "current" period have first been recalculated using the average exchange rates of the comparable period in the preceding year, and then compared with the results of the comparable period in the preceding year.
