DS Reports First Quarter 2009 Financial Results In Line With Preliminary Announcement

*In constant currencies.

  • IFRS and non-IFRS total revenue increased 1% on a reported basis. In constant currencies, IFRS and non-IFRS total revenue decreased 6%.
  • IFRS and non-IFRS software revenue increased 1% on a reported basis. In constant currencies, IFRS software revenue decreased 5%. Non-IFRS software revenue also decreased 5% due to a decrease in new licenses revenue of 40% which more than offset non-IFRS recurring software revenue growth of 15% (all figures are in constant currencies).
  • Both PLM and Mainstream 3D software results reflected the impact of the current global economic downturn with lower new licenses revenue offsetting growth in recurring software revenue. IFRS PLM software revenue decreased 7% in constant currencies. Non-IFRS PLM software revenue decreased 6% with CATIA software revenue lower by 11% and ENOVIA software revenue lower by 18% offset in part by double-digits software revenue growth from SIMULIA (all figures in constant currencies). Mainstream 3D IFRS and non-IFRS software revenue decreased 2% in constant currencies.
  • Services and other revenue decreased 7% in constant currencies, in part reflecting the DSF divestiture during 2008 offset to some extent by growth in consulting during the first quarter.
  • IFRS operating margin was 13.0%. In the year-ago quarter, the IFRS operating margin of 23.5% benefited from a one-time gain on sale of real estate. Non-IFRS operating margin decreased to 19.4% compared to 22.8% in the year-ago quarter reflecting the downturn in the economy, but was in line with the Company’s objective on good execution of its cost savings program.
  • Financial revenue and other, net, totaled €0.3 million compared to €0.2 million in the 2008 first quarter.
  • IFRS earnings per diluted share decreased 50% to €0.24. Non-IFRS earnings per diluted share were in line with the Company’s objective, decreasing 10% to €0.37 primarily reflecting a decrease in non-IFRS operating income of 14%.

Cash Flow and Other Financial Highlights

IFRS net operating cash flow was €96 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2009.

At March 31, 2009, cash and cash equivalents totaled €902.6 million and long-term debt was €200.3 million.
