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. The Company’s current outlook for 2015 takes into consideration, among other things, an uncertain global economic environment. In light of the continuing uncertainties regarding economic, business, social and geopolitical conditions at the global level, the Company’s revenue, net earnings and cash flows may grow more slowly, whether on an annual or quarterly basis. While the Company makes every effort to take into consideration this uncertain macroeconomic outlook, the Company’s business results, however, may not develop as anticipated. Furthermore, due to factors affecting sales of the Company’s products and services as described above, there may be a substantial time lag between an improvement in global economic and business conditions and an upswing in 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$1.15 per €1.00 for the 2015 second quarter and US$1.14 per €1.00 for the full year as well as an average Japanese yen to euro exchange rate of JPY135.0 to €1.00 for the second quarter and JPY134.8 to €1.00 for the 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 numerous risks and uncertainties, as described in the “Risk Factors” section of the 2014 Document de Référence, filed with the AMF on March 24, 2015, and also available on the Company’s website www.3ds.com.
