VÉLIZY-VILLACOUBLAY, France, Apr 26, 2017 – Dassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D digital mock up and product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, today announced IFRS unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017. These results were reviewed by the company’s board of directors on April 25, 2017.
This quarter’s revenue stood at €759.8 million, a drop of 13% compared to the quarter four’s revenue (€875.0 million) of last year, with a profit of €86.4 million.
Bernard Charlès, Dassault Systèmes’ vice chairman and chief executive officer commented, “In early April Dassault Systèmes brought together in Milan key innovators from around the globe who demonstrated that a new era, Design in the Age of Experience is well underway. In this era design is about creating experiences, introducing new business plans, leveraging science, learning from nature and creating unique consumer experiences, thanks to increased affordability of virtual and augmented reality technologies.
“Our software portfolio is well positioned to respond to these new market needs and to help our clients succeed in this new era. FCA, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, selected our ‘Drive Emotion’ industry solution experience based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to unify its global design studios and to develop the mobility experiences of tomorrow. Working with 3DEXCITE, Ford Motor Company and DS Automobiles, a division of PSA, have created for consumers immersive virtual reality experiences leveraging their digital assets. Partnering with the National Institute for Aerospace Research, the 3DEXPERIENCE Center is opening at Wichita State University as part of WSU’s Innovation Campus. This represents another initiative we are doing to contribute to the aerospace industry’s development in important areas such as new engineered materials, additive manufacturing processes and multi-robotics advanced manufacturing.
“From a financial perspective, the strength of our offer translated into 8% non-IFRS revenue growth in constant currencies during the first quarter. Our two largest industries, transportation & mobility and industrial equipment, drove these results. On top of this our diversification industries represented 32% of total software revenue in the quarter, with our presence in High Tech continuing to expand, and notable performances from consumer product goods-retail and architecture, engineering & construction.”
