Dassault Systèmes to acquire Apriso

29th May 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, May 29, 2013: Dassault Systèmes, a 3DEXPERIENCE Company, 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced its intent to acquire Apriso, a leading provider of manufacturing software solutions, for approximately $205 million.  The acquisition of the Long Beach, California-based Apriso enriches the global manufacturing operations management capabilities of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Apriso expands Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE footprint across multiple industries, such as consumer goods, packaged goods, high tech, life sciences, transportation & mobility, aerospace & defense and industrial equipment.  The solutions are currently used by a variety of customers, including Alstom, British American Tobacco, Bombardier, Cummins, General Motors, Hitachi, Japan Tobacco, L’Occitane, Lockheed Martin, L’Oreal, Philip Morris International, Saint-Gobain, Textron Systems, Trixell, Valeo, and Volvo CE.

Bernard Charlès, President and CEO, Dassault Systèmes, said, “This acquisition will merge 3DEXPERIENCE and Apriso’s solutions and deliver a new business experience to our customers. The question isn’t simply, ‘what is the next innovative idea?’ but rather ‘Can you produce your idea quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively? Can you excel in global business responsiveness and local production agility?’  These are the questions the 3DEXPERIENCE business platform answers.”

Jim Henderson, President and CEO, Apriso, said, “The Apriso team is proud to join Dassault Systèmes and to bring proven products and expertise in solving global manufacturing challenges. Now in combination with Dassault Systèmes’ leadership in 3DEXPERIENCE, we are ‘closing the loop’ between design, engineering, manufacturing and consumer experience. Global manufacturers can now accelerate new product and process innovations into the global market.”

Dassault Systèmes and Apriso have entered into a definitive acquisition agreement whereby Dassault Systèmes will acquire Apriso in a cash transaction. The completion of the acquisition is subject to normal closing conditions, including regulatory approvals. The transaction is expected to be completed in July 2013.
