With a capital increase of 10 million euros, Dassault Systemes acquires a 15% stake in AVSimulation. The two other shareholders, Oktal Sydac and Renault, respectively own 55.25% and 29.75% of AVSimulation shares.

« The association with Dassault Systemes is for me a dream come true because the competitive advantage offered by the integration of the 3DEXPERIENCE collaborative platform with our simulation and validation software SCANeR is unique in the world. »
– Emmanuel Chevrier, CEO, AVSimulation


The entry of Dassault Systemes will accelerate the commercialization of SCANeR worldwide as well as R&D through the capital injection. Among other things, we will quickly make SCANeR available on the Dassault Systemes cloud platform and offer our integration services and our simulators to their customers.
