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 standard cautionary statements.
The Company has assumed an average U.S. dollar to euro exchange rate of US$1.43 per €1.00 and an average Japanese yen to euro exchange rate of JPY118 to €1.00 for 2011; however, currency values fluctuate, and the Company’s results of operations may be significantly affected by changes in exchange rates. The Company’s actual results or performance may also be materially negatively affected by changes in the current global economic context, difficulties or adverse changes affecting its partners or its relationships with its partners, changes in exchange rates, 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 2010 Document de référence, as filed with the French Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) on April 1, 2011, could materially affect the Company’s financial position or results of operations.
