Dassault Systmes Initiates a 2023 Non-IFRS EPS Objective of 6.00

Regulatory News:

Dassault
Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE
Company, is unveiling a five-year plan targeting a 2023 non-IFRS EPS
objective of about €6.00 at its 2018 Capital Market Day which is being
held today, Friday, June 15, 2018.

The Capital Markets Day, dedicated to analysts and investors, is hosted
at the Company’s headquarters in Vélizy-Villacoublay, France, and
includes presentations by the senior executive management team. The
sessions are being recorded and will be available for replay following
completion of the Capital Markets Day by accessing http://www.3ds.com/investors/

“Across the world an Industry Renaissance is emerging bringing
profound changes to industries, companies and individuals. This is not
simply a digitalization of yesterday’s processes, but a complete
reimagining of what is possible combining the real and the virtual
worlds,” commented Bernard Charlès, Vice Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer.

“The 21st century is defined as high-added
value networks in which the real and the virtual merge to create,
produce and exchange sustainable experiences. Industrial firms must see
themselves as platforms. In this new economy, organized around digital
marketplaces where supply and demand meet both globally and locally,
business leadership hinges on the ability to acquire and share knowledge
and know-how.”

Pascal Daloz, Senior Vice President, CFO and Chief Strategy Officer,
commented, “This sea-change underway is well visible with the
accelerating 3DEXPERIENCE traction we are seeing with both
industry leaders and industry shakers. Our current addressable software
market of $28 billion places the customer experience at the heart of
sustainable innovation processes for the 12 industries we work with.

“We are initiating a 2018-2023 plan to double our non-IFRS EPS, to a
goal of about €6.00. From a revenue perspective, key growth drivers
already in action include the 3DEXPERIENCE software cycle, our
expanding global footprint bringing diversification and balance by
industry and geography, and new usage opportunities with the Cloud.
Complementing our key growth drivers are new initiatives, including our
recently introduced Marketplace and potential acquisitions aligned with
our purpose. Both of these can positively animate our 2023 non-IFRS EPS
objective and importantly set in motion future growth drivers beyond
2023.”

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 multi-year 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 2018 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. Further,
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. 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 2017 Document de
Référence (Annual Report) filed with the AMF (French Financial Markets
Authority) on March 21, 2018 and also available on the Company’s website www.3ds.com.

With respect to the Company’s 2018-2023 non-IFRS EPS objectives, the
Company has assumed an average US dollar to euro exchange rate of
US$1.22 per €1.00 over this period, an average Japanese yen to euro
exchange rate of JPY 134.5 to €1.00 as well as a continuation of current
exchange rates for other major currencies in which the Company transacts
business; however, currency values fluctuate, and the Company’s results
of operations may be significantly affected by changes in exchange rates.

Non-IFRS Financial Information

Readers are cautioned that the non-IFRS information presented in this
press release is subject to inherent limitations. It is not based on any
comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and should not be
considered as a substitute for IFRS measurements. Also, the Company’s
non-IFRS financial information may not be comparable to similarly titled
non-IFRS measures used by other companies. Further specific limitations
for individual non-IFRS measures, and the reasons for presenting
non-IFRS financial information, are set forth in the Company’s 2017
Document de Référence filed with the AMF on March 21, 2018.

Information in Constant Currencies

We have followed a long-standing policy of measuring our revenue
performance and setting our revenue objectives exclusive of currency in
order to measure in a transparent manner the underlying level of
improvement in our total revenue and software revenue by type, industry,
region and product lines. We believe it is helpful to evaluate our
growth exclusive of currency impacts, particularly to help understand
revenue trends in our business. Therefore, we provide percentage
increases or decreases in our revenue and EPS (in both IFRS as well as
non-IFRS) to eliminate the effect of changes in currency values,
particularly the U.S. dollar and the Japanese yen, relative to the euro.
When trend information is expressed by us “in constant currencies”, the
results of the “prior” period have first been recalculated using the
average exchange rates of the comparable period in the current year, and
then compared with the results of the comparable period in the current
year.

sectors: Transportation & Mobility; Industrial Equipment; Aerospace &

3DEXPERIENCE Licenses and Software Contribution

To measure the progressive penetration of 3DEXPERIENCE software,
the Company utilizes the following ratios: a) for Licenses revenue, the
Company calculates the percentage contribution by comparing total 3DEXPERIENCE
Licenses revenue to Licenses revenue for all product lines except
SOLIDWORKS and acquisitions (“related Licenses revenue”); and, b) for
software revenue, the Company calculates the percentage contribution by
comparing total 3DEXPERIENCE software revenue to software revenue
for all product lines except SOLIDWORKS and acquisitions (“related
software revenue”).
