IFRS software revenue was €4.66 billion (2011: €4.11 billion), an increase of 13% (10% at constant currencies). IFRS software and software-related service revenue was €13.16 billion (2011: €11.32 billion), an increase of 16%. Non-IFRS software and software-related service revenue was €13.25 billion (2011: €11.35 billion), an increase of 17% (13% at constant currencies). This exceeded SAP's non-IFRS software and software-related service revenue guidance which was the high end of the 10.5 – 12.5% range at constant currencies. IFRS total revenue was €16.22 billion (2011: €14.23 billion), an increase of 14%. Non-IFRS total revenue was €16.30 billion (2011: €14.26 billion), an increase of 14% (10% at constant currencies).

IFRS operating profit was €4.06 billion (2011: €4.88 billion), a decrease of 17%. Non-IFRS operating profit was €5.21 billion (2011: €4.71 billion), an increase of 11% (€5.02 billion at constant currencies, an increase of 6%). This was slightly below SAP's non-IFRS operating profit guidance (which was in a range of €5.05 - €5.25 billion at constant currencies) due to the company's continued investments in key innovations as well as the expansion of SAP's global go-to-market activities. IFRS operating margin was 25.0% (2011: 34.3%), a decrease of 9.3 percentage points. Non-IFRS operating margin was 31.9% (2011: 33.0%), a decrease of 1.1 percentage points. Non-IFRS operating margin was 31.8% at constant currencies, a decrease of 1.2 percentage points at constant currencies.

IFRS operating profit and IFRS operating margin for the full year 2012 were impacted by share-based compensation expense of €519 million (2011: €68 million) and acquisition-related charges of €537 million (2011: €448 million). Share-based compensation expenses significantly increased mainly due to the implementation of new share-based compensation plans and the strong performance of SAP's share price in 2012. Additionally, for the full year 2011, the reduction of the provision for the TomorrowNow litigation resulted in a significant profit from the discontinued TomorrowNow activities. This had a 5.1 percentage point positive influence on SAP's full year 2011 IFRS operating margin. For this reason the 2012 and 2011 IFRS profit and margin numbers are not fully comparable.

Operating profit and operating margin for the full year 2012 were impacted by SAP's continued investments in its global go-to-market activities and its cloud business. Total headcount for the group grew year-over-year by almost 8,700 FTEs (thereof more than 4,800 FTEs from acquisitions).

Full year 2012 non-IFRS software and software-related service revenue and non-IFRS operating profit excludes a deferred revenue write-down from acquisitions of €81 million (2011: €27 million). Full year Non-IFRS operating profit additionally excludes acquisition-related charges of €537 million, expenses from discontinued activities of €0 million, share-based compensation expenses of €519 million and restructuring expenses of €8 million (2011: €448 million, profit of €717 million, €68 million and €4 million).

Regional Performance – Full Year 2012

IFRS software revenue for the EMEA region was €2.01 billion (2011: €1.85 billion), an increase of 8% (7% at constant currencies). IFRS software and software-related service revenue for the EMEA region was €6.11 billion (2011: €5.53 billion), an increase of 10%. Non-IFRS software and software-related service revenue for the EMEA region was €6.11 billion (2011: €5.54 billion), an increase of 10% (9% at constant currencies). IFRS and non-IFRS software and software-related service revenue for Germany was €1.82 billion (2011: €1.73 billion), an increase of 5% (5% at constant currencies).

IFRS software revenue for the Americas region was €1.77 billion (2011: €1.53 billion), an increase of 16% (11% at constant currencies). IFRS software and software-related service revenue for the Americas region was €4.82 billion (2011: €3.96 billion), an increase of 22%. Non-IFRS software and software-related service revenue for the Americas region was €4.90 billion (2011: €3.98 billion), an increase of 23% (17% at constant currencies). IFRS software and software-related service revenue for the United States was €3.54 billion (2011: €2.87 billion), an increase of 23%. Non-IFRS software and software-related service revenue for the United States was €3.62 million (2011: €2.89 billion), an increase of 25% (17% at constant currencies).

IFRS software revenue for the APJ region was €879 million (2011: €722 million), an increase of 22% (17% at constant currencies). IFRS and non-IFRS software and software-related service revenue for the APJ region was €2.24 billion (2011: €1.83 billion), an increase of 22% (15% at constant currencies). IFRS and non-IFRS software and software-related service revenue for Japan was €699 million (IFRS 2011: €579 million; non-IFRS 2011: €580 million), an increase of 21% (13% at constant currencies).

The company will report its fourth quarter and full year 2012 results on January 23rd, including the outlook for 2013.
