For companies in the
pharmaceutical, biotechnology, energy, chemicals, aerospace and consumer packaged goods industries, innovation in the discovery and development of new products and the rapid, cost-effective commercialization of these products can be crucial to
success. Companies in these industries invest considerable resources in technologies that suggest productive new pathways for research projects, increase the efficiency of discovery and development processes, or enable them to maximize the use of
scientific data, information and knowledge. One such set of technologies is software and professional services in the area of computation, analysis, informatics, workflow and knowledge management solutions. These solutions allow users to leverage
the vast amounts of information stored in both corporate databases and public data sources and, when combined with predictive analysis, help these users make informed scientific and business decisions during the research and development process.

OVERVIEW

        For companies in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, chemical, petrochemical and materials industries, innovation in the discovery and development of new products and the rapid, cost-effective commercialization of these products can be crucial to success. Such organizations also strive to increase the efficiency or effectiveness of products and processes. Marginal process improvements can often have dramatic returns on investment. Companies in these industries invest considerable resources in technologies that suggest productive new pathways for research projects, increase the efficiency of discovery and development processes, or enable them to maximize the use of corporate data, information and knowledge. One such set of technologies is software-based computation, analysis, informatics and knowledge management tools. These tools allow users to simulate key chemical and biological systems, understand and predict fundamental properties, and design new or improved products and processes. They also manage and mine scientific data, turning it into useful information and supporting decision processes and research and development workflows.

        We design, develop, market, and support software and provide related services that facilitate the discovery and development of new and improved products and processes in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, chemical, petrochemical and materials industries. Using our products, researchers may increase the speed and efficiency of the research and development cycle, thereby reducing product development costs and shortening the time to market for new product introductions and process improvements. Our customers include leading commercial, government and academic organizations. Many of the largest pharmaceutical, biotechnology, chemical, petroleum and semiconductor companies worldwide use our software. We market our products and services worldwide, principally through our global direct sales force, augmented by use of distributors.

        Following are brief descriptions of our product lines.

        Modeling and Simulation Software.    Many factors that affect a molecule, including activity, bioavailability, toxicity, shelf life and environmental impact, are governed by fundamental properties such as shape, structure and reactivity that are determined at the sub-atomic, molecular, or near-molecular levels. A spectrum of simulation technologies—quantum mechanical simulation, molecular simulation, and mesoscale simulation—predict these properties and help researchers discover new products, sharpen the focus of experimental activities and improve ultimate product performance. We are a leading provider of such modeling and simulation software.

        We have a broad product suite consisting of over 100 application modules based on proprietary technologies that employ fundamental scientific principles, advanced computer visualization, molecular modeling techniques and computational chemistry. These products allow scientists to perform computations of chemical, biological and materials properties, to simulate, visualize and analyze chemical and biological systems, and to communicate the results to other scientists. We also offer open access to many of our core software development environments, within which customers and third-party licensees can develop, integrate and distribute their own software applications for computational chemistry, biology and materials research.

        We plan to continue enhancing our product and service offerings for specialist computational chemists and biologists, who are the principal users of modeling and simulation products. In addition, we are broadening our user base by enabling straightforward access to these methods by a much larger population of scientists and engineers who do not currently use modeling and simulation software. This also helps expert modelers to connect and communicate more effectively with other research organizations. Further, these products assist organizations in capturing, managing, and sharing the critical knowledge developed in modeling.

        Informatics Software.    We are a leading provider of tools to capture, store, manage, and mine scientific data and information. Informatics is a well-established technology in life sciences, where

bioinformatics tools are integral to genetic and biological research, and cheminformatics applications are widely used to manage chemical information.

        Our bioinformatics solutions include a suite of programs enabling molecular biologists to search, edit, compare, map and align sequence data. Researchers use these solutions to enable the analysis of DNA and protein sequences and structure, predict RNA secondary structure and annotate protein sequences. Such capabilities help them to use the genomic data that is being made available by projects such as the Human Genome Project. In addition, we provide enterprise-wide data management and analysis tools that assist in the management of this data. Data visualization and analysis capabilities allow this data to be viewed and understood on standard desktop computers.

        Our cheminformatics software is based on standard database architectures such as Oracle® and Microsoft® Access®. We provide data visualization and analysis software to search, retrieve, and use chemical structures, biological and chemical data, experimental data, and registration information. Many of these tools use industry standard software components and are compliant with applications such as Microsoft Excel®, allowing chemists to use chemical data within familiar productivity tools. We also use this component technology and our database architectures to build customized enterprise-wide systems for client companies, and we sell our components, enabling customization and flexible implementation of our systems by chemical programmers.

        Workflow Software Solution.    Our workflow solution software allows customers to analyze and mine extremely large data sets in real time. Informatics analyses generally require multiple computational steps. To address this issue our solutions allow for automated data analysis protocols to be saved for re-use or shared with a broad community of users within the organization.
