What is SAP? - The Company and The Software Package

As described in SAP's Web Pages (slightly modified here), at

Founded in 1972, SAP (Systeme, Anwendungen, Produkte in der Datenverarbeitung or, in English - Systems, Applications and Products in Data Processing) in Walldorf, Germany, is the leading global provider of client/server business application solutions. Its US headquarters is located in Wayne, PA. SAP markets two primary products: R/2 and R/3. Both share many features and provide similar functionality via an integrated suite of software application modules. The modules address the requirements of most companies and are available for selection based on a company's individual requirements.

Today, thousands of companies in more than 85 countries have chosen SAP client/server and mainframe business applications to manage comprehensive financial, manufacturing, sales and distribution, and human resources functions essential to their operations. SAP's client/server suite alone has been installed in more than 7,500 companies worldwide. R/3 is accepted as the standard in key industries, such as oil, chemicals, consumer packaged goods, and high tech/electronics. This is not to imply that all SAP customers are large, global organizations - they are not. In fact, of the more than 12,000 SAP installations around the world, more than half are in small to medium-sized businesses.

SAP AG employs a workforce of more than 12,000 and has offices in over 40 countries worldwide. SAP also offers consulting services, providing support and service for the installation and implementation of R/2 and R/3 software.

Commanding a significant share of the worldwide client/server enterprise application software market, SAP is the number one vendor of standard business application software and is the fifth largest independent software supplier in the world, demonstrating strong performance in the third quarter of 1997. Revenues for the period increased by 82% to DM 1,417 million as against the prior year, while pretax profits rose by 86% to DM 251 million. In the first nine months of the year, sales grew by 61%, to DM 3.8 billion (US $2.2 billion). Pretax profits were up 64% to DM 833 million (US $472 million).

SAP AG preferred and common shares are listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, among other exchanges worldwide. SAP is a component of the DAX, the index of 30 German blue chip companies. In 1995, SAP established an American Depository Receipt facility to allow US shareholders to participate in SAP's progress with a dollar-denominated security. Each SAP ADR is worth one-third of an SAP preferred share trading in Frankfurt. SAP's ADRs trade over the counter under the symbol "SAPHY" and can be purchased through a broker like any other security. In order to enhance its profile in the US, the world's largest IT market, SAP plans to list its shares on a US exchange in the third quarter of 1998.
