Other Corporate Information
On April 1, 2011, Dassault Systèmes filed its 2010 Document de référence with the French Autorité des marchés financiers. The 2010 Document de référence as well as an English language translation of this document are available on the Company’s website.
Thibault de Tersant, Senior Executive Vice President and CFO, commented, “Our first quarter financial results reflected a number of positive dynamics across our businesses and solid operational management. Our strong revenue performance in combination with good expense management led to our non-IFRS operating margin coming in at 28.3% and non-IFRS earnings per share growing 47%.
“Based upon our first quarter results, business trends and recently completed acquisitions, we believe we are positioned to offset the potential impact on revenues that may arise as a consequence of the earthquake in Japan. Therefore, although reducing the reported revenue range outlook to reflect currency assumption changes, we are reconfirming our 2011 constant currency revenue growth objective, including our 15% constant currency new licenses revenue growth goal, as well as our non-IFRS 29% operating margin and our non-IFRS earnings per share objectives. At the same time we will continue to make the appropriate investments to expand our addressable market.”
The Company’s current objectives are the following:
- Second quarter 2011 non-IFRS total revenue objective of about €400 to €410 million, non-IFRS operating margin of about 26-27% and non-IFRS EPS of about €0.56 to €0.61;
- Reconfirming 2011 non-IFRS revenue growth objective range of about 9% to 11% in constant currencies; (adjusting the reported revenue range to €1.67 to €1.70 billion from €1.68 to €1.71 billion previously, based upon the 2011 currency exchange rate assumptions outlined below);
- Reconfirming 2011 non-IFRS operating margin of about 29%;
- Reconfirming 2011 non-IFRS EPS range of €2.64 to €2.75, representing growth of about 6% to 10%;
- Objectives are based upon exchange rate assumptions for the 2011 second quarter of US$1.45 per €1.00 and JPY120 per €1.00 and a full year average of US$1.43 per €1.00 and JPY118 per €1.00.
The Company’s objectives are prepared and communicated only on a non-IFRS basis and are subject to the cautionary statement set forth below.
The non-IFRS objectives set forth above do not take into account the following accounting elements and are estimated based upon the 2011 currency exchange rates above: deferred revenue write-downs estimated at approximately €1 million for 2011; share-based compensation expense estimated at approximately €15 million for 2011 and amortization of acquired intangibles estimated at approximately €80 million for 2011. The objectives outlined above do not include any impact from other operating income and expense, net principally comprised of acquisition, integration, restructuring and relocation expenses. These estimates do not include any new stock option or share grants, or any new acquisitions or restructurings completed after April 27, 2011.
