Bernard Charlès, Dassault Systèmes’ Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer commented, “During this unprecedented period, we have revealed the critical importance of collaborative innovation across the three sectors we serve as a strategic partner in value creation. Through close engagement we have helped our clients to manage and reinvent their operations during the pandemic – especially for businesses in the manufacturing industries. At the same moment, our collaborative innovation platform has also enabled our clients to prepare for the future and advance their next generation portfolios for sustainable innovation.  

“The mission-critical nature of our platform has been most visible in Life Sciences, where a majority of the COVID-19 clinical trials were conducted with our MEDIDATA software solutions during 2020. The health crisis has very clearly revealed the game-changing nature of our virtual twin experience, from research to patient care. The additive power of such brands as BIOVIA, SIMULIA, DELMIA and NETVIBES makes it possible to deliver healthcare industry solutions to ensure that the creation and manufacture of vaccines and therapeutics reach all of us around the globe.

“As part of our purpose, we committed to maintaining our global people resources, with no outside governmental support. Moreover, we continued to invest in expanding our Research & Development teams, internally and externally, adding critical resources around our data science initiatives, as our R&D is about supporting our clients’ next generation of innovation.”

COO & CFO Commentary (growth figures in constant currencies)

Pascal Daloz, Dassault Systèmes’ Chief Operating Officer & Chief Financial Officer, commented, “Our financial results underscored our recurring revenue resiliency, representing 80% of our total software revenue, and strong operational execution enabling us to mitigate the impact of the pandemic on our operating performance. We delivered 2020 non-IFRS EPS of €3.77, up 5% at constant currency. Cash flow from operations increased 5% to €1.24 billion. We maintained our workforce and increased our R&D investments geared towards the future. Based upon our outlook, we are targeting 2021 non-IFRS total revenue growth of about 9% to 10%, with non-IFRS earnings per share growth of about 13% to 14% excluding currency headwinds.

“We enter 2021 with significant momentum in Life Sciences anchored by MEDIDATA, where it begins this year with 94% coverage of its target revenue thanks to significant progress achieved in 2020. During this past year, MEDIDATA expanded its customer base by 16%, signed record multi-year renewals for RAVE EDC in clinical trials, expanded product line attach rates, and experienced significant traction with Patient Cloud, on track to be its next product line to cross the $100 million milestone. Underscoring our unique end to end platform offer for Life Sciences, we signed our first large transaction, combining patient engagement using MyMedidata and Rave with manufacturing operations and supply chain process optimization provided by other brands within Dassault Systèmes.

“In Mainstream Innovation, we are expanding our levers of growth with SOLIDWORKS, 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS, and CENTRIC PLM. During 2020, SOLIDWORKS welcomed over 20,000 new customers, reached 230,000 paid subscription Draftsight users and saw progressive traction with 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS. Centric PLM delivered a strong recovery in the fourth quarter, underscoring its market leadership in PLM for Home & Lifestyle.

“Finally, in Industrial Innovation, we delivered a significant number of 3DEXPERIENCE go lives during 2020 and signed a number of important transactions, demonstrating our market leadership and positioning us for improved performance in 2021.”

Full Year 2020 versus 2019 Financial Comparisons
(Unaudited with all revenue growth rates reported in Constant Currencies)

  • Total Revenue: IFRS total revenue was €4.5 billion. On a non-IFRS basis, total revenue increased 12% to €4.5 billion on software growth of 14% offset in part by a decrease of 7% in services revenue. Software revenue represented 90% of total revenue with services 10%. Financial results reflected the inclusion of Medidata Solutions, Inc. for twelve months in 2020 and two months in 2019 following the completion of its acquisition on October 28, 2019. On an organic basis, non-IFRS total revenue decreased 3%.
     
  • Software Revenue: IFRS software revenue totaled €4.0 billion. Non-IFRS software revenue increased 14%, driven by non-IFRS recurring software revenue growth of 27% with the addition of MEDIDATA and organic growth of 6%. Non-IFRS recurring software revenue totaled €3.22 billion and represented 80% of non-IFRS software revenue. Licenses and other software revenue decreased 18% (IFRS and non-IFRS on an organic basis). Software revenue was well-balanced on a global basis, with Europe, Americas and Asia representing 37%, 38% and 25%, respectively, of software revenue. Thanks to the geographic diversification efforts, Asia now joins the Americas and Europe regions, crossing the            €1 billion milestone for annual software revenue.  
     
  • Operating Income and Margin: IFRS operating income totaled €669.7 million. On a non-IFRS basis, operating income increased 4% to €1.35 billion. The non-IFRS operating margin was 30.2% compared to 32.0% for 2019, largely reflecting acquisition dilution of about 210 basis points offset in part by underlying organic improvement of about 40 basis points.
     
  • Net Income per share: IFRS diluted net income per share was €1.86. On a non-IFRS basis, diluted net income per share totaled €3.77, increasing 3% as reported or 5% at constant currency.  
     
  • Cash flow from operations: For 2020 cash flow from operations increased 5% to €1.24 billion. Cash from operations was used principally for repayment of debt, net of proceeds, of €382.4 million; distribution of cash dividends of €182.5 million; capital expenditures, net of €127.0 million; repurchase and sale of shares of €166.2 million related to its stock options and share grant programs; payments for acquisitions, net of cash acquired, of €89.5 million; and payment for lease obligations of €93.3 million.

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 Group’s non-IFRS financial performance objectives or framework, 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 Group’s actual results or performance may be materially negatively affected by numerous risks and uncertainties, as described in the “Risk Factors” section of the 2019 Document d'enregistrement universel (Annual Report) filed with the AMF (French Financial Markets Authority) on March 19, 2020, as updated in the Rapport Financier Semestriel au 30 juin 2020 (2020 Half-Year Financial Report) filed with the AMF on July 24, 2020, both available on the Group’s website www.3ds.com.

In particular, please refer to the risk factor “Uncertain Global Economic Environment” in section 1.7.1.1 of the 2019 Document d'enregistrement universel (Annual Report), set out below for ease of reference:

“In light of the uncertainties regarding economic, business, social, health and geopolitical conditions at the global level, Dassault Systèmes’ revenue, net earnings and cash flows may grow more slowly, whether on an annual or quarterly basis, mainly due to the following factors:

  • the deployment of Dassault Systèmes’ solutions may represent a large portion of a customer’s investments in software technology. Decisions to make such an investment are impacted by the economic environment in which the customers operate. Uncertain global geopolitical, economic and health conditions and the lack of visibility or the lack of financial resources may cause some customers, e.g. within automotive, aerospace or natural resources industries, to reduce, postpone or terminate their investments, or to reduce or not renew ongoing paid maintenance for their installed base, which impact larger customers’ revenue with their respective sub-contractors;
  • the sales cycle of Dassault Systèmes’ products – already relatively long due to the strategic nature of such investments for customers – could further lengthen;
  • the political, economic and monetary situation in certain geographic regions where Dassault Systèmes operates could become more volatile and, for example, result in stricter export compliance rules or the modification of current tariff regimes;
  • health conditions in some geographic areas where Dassault Systèmes operates will impact the economic situation of those regions. Specifically, it is not possible to predict the impact, length and scope of damages originating from the COVID-19 pandemic as of issuance date of this document. Health conditions, including the COVID-19 pandemic, may present risks for health and ability to travel for Dassault Systèmes employees; and
  • continued pressure or volatility on raw materials and energy prices could also slow down Dassault Systèmes’ industry diversification efforts.”

             
Dassault Systèmes makes every effort to take into consideration this uncertain macroeconomic outlook. Dassault Systèmes’ business results, however, may not develop as anticipated. Furthermore, due to factors affecting sales of Dassault Systèmes’ products and services, there may be a substantial time lag between an improvement in global economic and business conditions and an upswing in the Group’s  business results.

The economic context (as notably caused by the COVID-19 pandemic crisis) may also adversely impact the financial situation or financing capabilities of Dassault Systèmes’ existing and potential customers, commercial and technology partners, some of whom may be forced to temporarily close sites or cease operations due to cash flow and profitability issues. Dassault Systèmes’ ability to collect outstanding receivables may be affected. In addition, the economic environment could generate increased price pressure, as customers seek lower prices from various competitors, which could negatively impact Dassault Systèmes’ revenue, financial performance and market position.

In preparing such forward-looking statements, the Group has in particular assumed an average US dollar to euro exchange rate of US$1.22 per €1.00 as well as an average Japanese yen to euro exchange rate of JPY126.0 to €1.00 before hedging for the first quarter and full year 2021. However, currency values fluctuate, and the Group’s results of operations may be significantly affected by changes in exchange rates.

Non-IFRS Financial Information

Readers are cautioned that the supplemental non-IFRS information presented in this press release is subject to inherent limitations. This information is not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and should not be considered as a substitute for IFRS measurements. In addition, the Group’s supplemental 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 Group’s 2019 Document d'enregistrement universel (Annual Report) filed with the AMF on March 19, 2020. 

In the tables accompanying this press release the Group sets forth its supplemental non-IFRS figures for revenue, operating income, operating margin, net income and diluted earnings per share, which exclude the effect of adjusting the carrying value of acquired companies’ deferred revenue, share-based compensation expense and related social charges, the amortization of acquired intangible assets and of tangibles reevaluation, certain other operating income and expense, net, including impairment of goodwill and acquired intangibles, the effect of adjusting lease incentives of acquired companies, certain one-time items included in financial revenue and other, net, and the income tax effect of the non-IFRS adjustments and certain one-time tax effects. The tables also set forth the most comparable IFRS financial measure and reconciliations of this information with non-IFRS information.

DASSAULT SYSTEMES - GLOSSARY OF DEFINITIONS

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.

While constant currency calculations are not considered to be an IFRS measure, we do believe these measures are critical to understanding our global revenue results and to compare with many of our competitors who report their financial results in U.S. dollars. Therefore, we are including this calculation for comparing IFRS revenue figures for comparable periods as well as for comparing non-IFRS revenue figures for comparable periods. All constant currency information is provided on an approximate basis. Unless otherwise indicated, the impact of exchange rate fluctuations is approximately the same for both the Group’s IFRS and supplemental non-IFRS financial data.

Information on Growth excluding acquisitions (“organic growth”)

In addition to discussing total growth, we also provide financial information where we discuss growth excluding acquisitions or growth on an organic basis as used alternatively. In both cases, growth excluding acquisitions have been calculated using the following restatements of the scope of consolidation: for entities entering the consolidation scope in the current year, subtracting the contribution of the acquisition from the aggregates of the current year, and for entities entering the consolidation scope in the previous year, subtracting the contribution of the acquisition from January 1st of the current year, until the last day of the month of the current year when the acquisition was made the previous year.

Information on Industrial Sectors

Dassault Systèmes’ Industries develop Solution Experiences, industry-focused offerings that deliver specific value to companies and users in a particular industry. We serve eleven industries structured into three sectors:

  • Manufacturing Sector: Transportation & Mobility; Aerospace & Defense; Marine & Offshore; Industrial Equipment; High-Tech; Home & Lifestyle; Consumer Packaged Goods & Retail and a portion of Business Services;
  • Life Sciences & Healthcare Sector: Life Sciences
  • Infrastructure & Cities Sector: Energy & Materials; Construction, Cities and Territories; Business Services.

Information on Product Lines

Commencing with the first quarter of 2020 and as previously disclosed, we have introduced a new presentation of our product lines to reflect our broader ambitions. Our new product line financial reporting includes: 1) Industrial Innovation software revenue, comprised of our CATIA, ENOVIA, SIMULIA, DELMIA, GEOVIA, NETVIBES/EXALEAD, and 3DEXCITE brands; 2) Life Sciences software revenue, comprised of our MEDIDATA and BIOVIA brands; and 3) Mainstream Innovation software revenue, comprised of our SOLIDWORKS brand as well as CENTRIC PLM, 3DVIA and our new 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS family.

3DEXPERIENCE Licenses and Software Contribution

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

Adjusted Net Debt

The Adjusted Net Debt corresponds to the net financial debt position (borrowings net of cash, cash equivalent and short-term investments) adjusted of IFRS 16 lease liabilities.

IFRS EBITDAO (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes and Amortization Operating)

The IFRS EBITDAO corresponds to the IFRS operating income adjusted of amortization, depreciation and impairment expense of intangible and tangible assets and of non-cash share-based payment expense (excluding related social charges).
