SAP to Acquire TechniData AG

Acquisition of Long-Standing SAP Partner Will Help Accelerate SAP’s Sustainability Transformation

WALLDORF, Germany – Continuing its focus on providing market-leading sustainability solutions to customers worldwide, SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced its intent to acquire TechniData AG, the world’s leading provider of product safety and environmental, health and safety (EHS) solutions. Through this acquisition, SAP intends to expand its product portfolio as well as its market and thought leadership in sustainability.

Based in Markdorf, Germany, TechniData has been a strategic SAP partner for more than 15 years, and has helped shape SAP’s sustainability offerings in the EHS arena. Employing nearly 500 people, TechniData provides systems integration, managed EHS services, regulatory content and software to help companies comply with regulatory challenges in these areas. With SAP announcing its strategic commitment to sustainability in spring of 2009, this acquisition is the next logical step between two companies that are both driven by the belief that sustainability is core to all business processes in the future.

“SAP and TechniData have enjoyed a very productive, long-term relationship, and we are truly excited about joining the SAP family,” said Juergen Schwab, chief executive officer, TechniData AG. “We believe that the scale of SAP’s development and field resources combined with our expertise in the EHS and product safety domains can help us bring the value of sustainability to more customers worldwide.”

This acquisition is in line with SAP’s strategy to complement existing applications and solutions with smart purchases that offer innovative technologies and functional capabilities. The strategy is guided by careful market assessments and focuses on adding value to customers’ investments in SAP, expanding the company’s abilities to support customers and partners in their sustainability approach. Through the acquisition of TechniData, SAP gains both a more comprehensive service offering and the talents of accomplished employees with deep knowledge of customer processes as well as SAP products and integration technologies.

The SAP® EHS Management application helps companies address regulatory compliance in the areas of product, plant and people safety. It helps to reduce both EHS risks and compliance cost at the same time, a result unobtainable in traditional labor-intensive and error-prone non-IT-supported compliance processes. The solution is designed to natively integrate into SAP® Business Suite software.

“Sustainability is about holistically managing economic, environmental and social risks and opportunities. IT can help organizations execute their sustainability strategies in a way that drives short- and long-term profitability,” said Peter Graf, chief sustainability officer and executive vice president of Sustainability Solutions, SAP. “SAP and TechniData share this comprehensive view of sustainability. As a result, our customers enjoy more homogeneity of their IT infrastructure, lower cost of integration, and cutting edge sustainability processes combined with comprehensive analytics and reporting capabilities.”

SAP anticipates that the acquisition will be completed in the beginning of the third quarter of 2010 and will provide additional details about future plans after the closing of the transaction. Terms and purchase price are not publicly disclosed.

SAP Named Worldwide Market Share Leader

SAP Named Worldwide Market Share Leader in Business Intelligence, Analytics and Performance Management Software by Top Industry Analyst Firm

SAP Ranked No. 1 by Leading Analyst Firm With 22.4 Percent Market Share

WALLDORF, Germany – April 28, 2010 – SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced it has been named the market share leader in business intelligence (BI), analytics and performance management software, according to the 2009 market share report issued by Gartner Inc. In the report, SAP ranks No. 1 with 22.4 percent share of the worldwide market.

“The SAP® BusinessObjects™ portfolio offers the most complete, innovative business intelligence (BI) analytic applications and enterprise performance management (EPM) solutions on the market,” said Sanjay Poonen, executive vice president, SAP. “These solutions provide increased insight and give organizations a powerful tool that helps employees make smarter, faster decisions to drive their business forward. With actionable information at their fingertips, business users can positively impact the performance of their organization.”

According to the Gartner report, “The business intelligence software market was one of the segments that significantly outperformed the overall enterprise software market in 2009. However, large erosion of the prior year’s growth rates showed that this segment is far from being recession-proof.”

In the April 2010 report, “Market Share: Business Intelligence, Analytics and Performance Management Software, Worldwide, 2009,” Gartner found the entire BI market to have increased 4.2 percent from 2008 to approximately $9.3 billion in 2009. BI platforms were found to have a 64.2 percent market share of total worldwide BI software revenue. Corporate performance management (CPM) suites were found to have a 20.8 percent market share, and analytic applications and performance management software were found to have a 15 percent market share. In 2009, SAP BI software revenue for all of these segment types combined ranked first at approximately $2.1 billion.
