*Additional Information*

This press release and all information therein is unaudited.

The 2019 numbers include Qualtrics' revenues and profits only from the
acquisition date of January 23rd. The comparative numbers for full year 2018
do not include Qualtrics revenues and profits and include Callidus revenue

_Definition of key growth metrics_

New cloud bookings are the total of all orders received in a given period
the revenue from which is expected to be classified as cloud revenue and
that result from purchases by new customers and from incremental purchases
by existing customers. Consequently, orders to renew existing contracts are
not included in this metric. The order amount must be committed.
Consequently, due to their pay-per-use nature, business network transaction
fees which do not include a committed minimum consumption are not reflected
in the bookings metric (e.g. SAP Ariba and SAP Fieldglass transaction-based
fees). Amounts included in the measures are generally annualized (annualized
contract value ACV).

Share of more predictable revenue is the total of non-IFRS cloud revenue and
non-IFRS software support revenue as a percentage of total revenue.
