Dassault Systèmes all set to Acquire Apriso

Dassault Systèmes has 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.

Apriso will be integrated with and expand Dassault Systèmes’ DELMIA application portfolio and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s virtual+reality capabilities. Apriso’s solutions synchronize global manufacturing networks, offering real-time visibility and control over the business processes performed by plants and suppliers.  These solutions establish a common set of operational standards that can be managed holistically, on a global basis, while continuously improving and meeting local market and customer needs.  By integrating these solutions with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, customers will have a comprehensive view of their business, from idea to design, to production and global product availability for consumers worldwide.

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.
