"We continue to make significant progress with our strategic and financial goals," said Jaron Lotan, president and chief executive officer of Tecnomatix Technologies. "For the third quarter of 2004, we achieved record revenue with growth of 26% year-over-year and we increased our operating and net profits. In addition, we continue to report positive cash flow from operating activities. These results are mainly attributable to the continued deployment of our MPM enterprise solutions across a range of vertical markets.

"During the quarter, we enjoyed year-over-year growth across all territories, which was mainly driven by our Mechanical division. Automotive OEMs like Audi, BMW, Ford, GM/Opel, PSA and Volkswagen further expanded their eMPower Enterprise deployments and Renault F1 placed an initial order for our eMPower solution.

"We are particularly pleased with our success in the Tier 1 automotive supplier industry. This $500 billion dollar industry, which manufacturers all the major components of a car, presents a major growth opportunity for Tecnomatix. This quarter, two U.S. companies, Visteon and Intier, placed initial orders for our MPM Enterprise solution, joining our impressive customer base of more than twenty of the world's top Tier-1 suppliers.

"Outside of the automotive industry, demand for our standalone engineering products is particularly strong. Among the companies placing orders in the third quarter were Fanuc, a leading robot manufacturer, Fiat Avio, an Italian aerospace company, Atomic Energy of Canada (AECL), John Deere and Westinghouse.

"We continue to gain traction in China and Taiwan, which is driving increased market penetration through new and repeat orders. This quarter, several automotive customers progressed with their implementation of eMPower Enterprise solutions including Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC), China's largest car producer, and Yulon Motor Company, a Taiwanese car manufacturer. We are also seeing increased adoption of MPM by the Chinese electronics industry, with companies like Inventec, Siemens Shanghai Mobile Communications and UMC placing orders for our eMPower for Electronics solution.

"Our partnership with UGS is progressing well; our technical teams are working together at several major customer sites and, this quarter, we delivered a new version of the Teamcenter and eMPower integrated product.

"In summary, this has been a productive quarter for Tecnomatix, exhibiting important gains in a range of vertical markets with initial and repeat orders for our eMPower Enterprise solution and for our standalone engineering products," continued Lotan. "Our customers continue to report significant productivity improvements and returns on their investments. We are on track with our ongoing objectives to deliver real value to our customers as well as continued financial growth and increased profitability."
