Частная компания CoCreate со штаб-квартирой в Зиндельфингене, Германия состоит из 280 сотрудников и имеет более 5 000 клиентов по всему миру, включая Agilent, Canon, Fisher Controls, Fujitsu, HP, Liebherr, Matsushita Electric, NEC, Olympus, Phoenix Contact и Seiko Epson.

С поглощением CoCreate PTC расширит портфель своих решений и предложит полный набор технологий моделирования в индустрии механических САПР (MCAD).

PTC планирует интегрировать решения CoCreate для моделирования в Product Development System (PDS) для того, чтобы предложить клиентам CoCreate дополнительные возможности по разработке изделий, включая инженерные расчеты, динамическую публикацию, визуализацию, высокоскоростную механообработку, управление содержимым и процессами уровня предприятия, а также возможность использований их решений для моделирования совместно с PTC PDS.

Доход компании CoCreate составил около 80 млн. долл. за последние 12 месяцев (доход PTC за тот же период составил 941,5 млн. долл.).

Компания CoCreate предлагает своим клиентам CoCreate OneSpace Suite - полную программную платформу для разработки изделия и управления его жизненным циклом. Данное ПО ориентировано на использование в секторе высокотехнологичной электроники и станкостроении.

Отличительной особенностью OneSpace Modeling является использование новой технологии трехмерного моделирования - динамического моделирования, которое не основано на истории построения модели. CoCreate OneSpace Modeling Personal Edition является бесплатной трехмерной САПР, которую опробовали более 50 тысяч пользователей по всему миру.

В октябре 2007 года CoCreate сообщила о 50 тысячах пользователей своей бесплатной трехмерной САПРCoCreate OneSpace Modeling Personal Edition (PE).

OneSpace Modeling PE - это бесплатная трехмерная система автоматизированного проектирования, разработанная компанией CoCreate. Любой желающий может загрузить это ПО и использовать его для создания изделий, состоящих не более чем из 60 уникальных частей. С момента выпуска этой программы в среднем 5000 человек в месяц регистрируются и загружают ПО по адресу http://www.cocreate.com/free.

Программа продолжается для стимулирования интереса пользователей к ПО CoCreate OneSpace Suite, предлагая каждому пользователю непосредственно убедиться в скорости и гибкости уникального подхода к разработке трехмерного изделия - динамического моделирования.

Компания приводит интересную статистику зарегистрировавшихся пользователей бесплатной трехмерной САПР:

  • Около 90% зарегистрировавшихся - новые пользователи CoCreate;
  • 45% - никогда до этого не работали с 3-D САПР;
  • 92% - те, кто имеет опыт работы с 3-D САПР, раньше знали только о моделировании, основанном на истории построения модели;
  • 78% - профессионально используют САПР.

PTC To Acquire Leading Product Development Software Provider CoCreate For 250 Million Dollars. PTC to Offer Industry’s Most Comprehensive Modeling Suite

PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC), the Product Development Company®, today announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire CoCreate Software GmbH, a provider of PLM and CAD modeling solutions for approximately 250 million dollars. CoCreate, based in Sindelfingen, Germany, is privately held, has 280 employees and more than 5,000 customers globally including Agilent, Canon, Fisher Controls, Fujitsu, HP, Liebherr, Matsushita Electric, NEC, Olympus, Phoenix Contact and Seiko Epson.

With the acquisition of CoCreate, PTC will broaden its portfolio and offer support for the most comprehensive range of modeling techniques in the MCAD industry. PTC plans to integrate the CoCreate modeling solutions with the PTC Product Development System (PDS) in order to offer CoCreate customers additional product development capabilities including engineering calculations, dynamic publishing, visualization, high-speed machining, and enterprise content and process management, and ultimately, the option of using their modeling solutions also as part of the PTC PDS.

With revenue of approximately million and substantial non-GAAP operating margins in the last twelve months, PTC expects the acquisition will be accretive to non-GAAP earnings and operating margins in the second quarter of fiscal 2008. Due to the lower level of deferred maintenance revenue that PTC will be permitted to record under purchase accounting as compared to the level of deferred maintenance revenue recorded by CoCreate, PTC expects that the acquisition will be dilutive to GAAP EPS in 2008, but accretive to GAAP EPS in 2009 and beyond. The acquisition is expected to close in December 2007, subject to customary conditions including regulatory approval.

“PTC is dedicated to providing product development organizations with the solutions that they need to be successful in an incredibly competitive global marketplace,” said C. Richard Harrison, president and CEO of PTC. “As experts in product development, we are constantly evaluating technologies that address the business challenges of our customers. This acquisition is compelling as it enhances PTC’s product portfolio while also contributing in a meaningful way to earnings and operating margin. The satisfaction of CoCreate’s customers will be a major focus for PTC. We are committed to protecting and enhancing the investment that these customers have made in CoCreate solutions and we plan to also offer additional complementary PTC solutions in order to bring them even more value.”

With this acquisition, PTC embraces all the accepted approaches to modeling – parametric, explicit, derived and 2D. Any of these modeling techniques combined with the PTC PDS offers customers a competitive advantage unmatched by any other vendor in the industry.

“The combination of PTC and CoCreate products will enable PTC to offer the manufacturing industry the flexibility to select the most appropriate modeling software for their business requirements from a financially secure, trusted worldwide product development technology leader,” said Jim Heppelmann, executive vice president and chief product officer of PTC. “Each modeling approach has its own advantages, and only PTC will have an objective view that allows us to map the appropriate modeling approach to a given customer situation, yet encase that modeling approach in a full product development system. In line with industry trends, we expect the majority of our modeling business will continue to come from our flagship parametric solution, Pro/ENGINEER®. CoCreate customers who prefer explicit modeling will now have a complete product development system as a viable option.”

“Offering high quality products that deliver significant customer value has always been a key tenet of CoCreate’s business strategy,” said William M. Gascoigne, CEO, CoCreate. “PTC’s plan to support and further develop CoCreate solutions as well as provide an integration to PTC’s product development system will provide our customers with additional technology choices, and even greater opportunities for product development success.”
