Bernard Charles, Dassault Systemes President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "DS had a great second quarter, with revenue, earnings and operating margin coming in above our objectives. Software revenue increased 36% in constant currencies on broad-based strength, with CATIA results providing a solid foundation. The strong performance of our sales organization and partners, including IBM, business partners and the SolidWorks channel, contributed to this excellent quarter.

"We continue to see good dynamics for our business in Asia, where revenues increased 49% in constant currencies for the second quarter. In particular, the level of interest in PLM remains high in Asia and we see this continuing as evidenced by record attendance at our major user conferences in Japan and China in July.

"In summary, DS is very well positioned for growth in 2006 and the coming years as the leading provider in PLM, which is mission critical for product development performance and innovation. We have continued to gain market share in the first half of 2006 and with our recent acquisitions of both ABAQUS and MatrixOne we are further expanding our addressable market. Working together with our customers and partners, we expect to continue to extend the value PLM brings to multiple industries."

Thibault de Tersant, Executive Vice President and CFO of Dassault Systemes, commented, "MatrixOne is delivering on all of our acquisition objectives. MatrixOne's performance exceeded our targets and it is already at break-even in its first period of operation as a part of Dassault Systemes. And our plans to achieve cost savings are solidly on track."
