PARIS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 16, 2015 — Regulatory News:

Alain de Rouvray, ESI Group’s (Paris: ESI) Chairman and CEO, comments: "The significant improvement in our economic results over this fiscal year reflects the success of our profitability improvement and cost control policies, both to be continued over 2015. Our management team reinforcement and recent developments and acquisition advances have increased ESI solid assets to strengthen strategic relationships with OEMs and their Tier 1 suppliers and partners, and to amplify the use of our virtual prototyping solutions in their eco-system.
