while we focus on executing our strategic plan to position the company for
enhanced growth,” said Tony Affuso, chairman, CEO and president of UGS. “As

double digit software growth in the quarter. During the second quarter we
also continued to receive third-party accolades for our software and service
through such prestigious designations as being named a Caterpillar Strategic
Supplier, the Honda Engineering Supplier of the Year Award, Ford’s Q1
Certification, GM’s Supplier of the Year Award and Frost & Sullivan’s PLM
