PARIS, July 25 French software maker Dassault Systemes on Thursday raised its full-year earnings outlook as second quarter revenue increased, despite a 4.5-percent slip in net profit on one-offs.
Dassault said that for the full year it now expects earnings per share of 3.57 to 3.67 euros, representing growth of 6 percent to 9 percent, up from a previous estimated range of 2 percent to 7 percent.
The group said the fall in net income to 0.64 euros a share mainly reflected a one-time gain on the sale of a distribution activity in the 2012 second quarter, together with a higher shared-based payment expense in the current second quarter.
Second-quarter total revenue increased six percent to 522 million euros ($690.94 million)on growth in both software revenue and services and other revenue, it said. ($1 = 0.7555 euros) (Reporting By Christian Plumb; editing by Mark John)
