Forward-looking Information

Statements herein that are not historical facts but express expectations or objectives for the future, including but not limited to statements regarding the Company’s non-IFRS financial performance objectives, are forward-looking statements.

Such forward-looking statements are based on Dassault Systèmes management's current views and assumptions and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties. Actual results or performances may differ materially from those in such statements due to a range of factors. If global economic and business conditions continue to be volatile or deteriorate, the Company’s business results may not develop as currently anticipated and may decline below their earlier levels for an extended period of time. Furthermore, due to factors affecting sales of the Company’s products and services, there may be a substantial time lag between any change in global economic and business conditions and its impact on the Company’s business results.

In preparing such forward-looking statements, the Company has in particular assumed an average US dollar to euro exchange rate of US$1.40 per €1.00 and an average Japanese yen to euro exchange rate of JPY120 to €1.00 for the 2013 first quarter and full year; 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, in particular related to the integration of Gemcom Software International and internal reorganizations. Unfavorable changes in any of the above or other factors described in the Company’s regulatory reports, including the 2011 Document de référence, and 2012 Half Year Financial Report, which were filed with the French Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) on March 29, 2012, and July 27, 2012, respectively, could materially affect the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

Estimated results

Readers are cautioned that the results and financial data presented in this press release are “estimated data” according to the 2004-04 Position “Communications on estimated financial data” of the AMF updated on August 1, 2012. The approval of the 2012 financial statements will be submitted to the Board of Directors scheduled at the end of March 2013.
