WALLDORF, Germany - January 11, 2016 - After an initial review of its
fourth quarter 2015 performance, SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced its
preliminary financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended
December 31, 2015. All 2015 figures in this release are approximate due to
the preliminary nature of the announcement.

SAP had exceptional momentum with fast growth in cloud and double-digit
growth in its core license business in the fourth quarter. For the full
year, non-IFRS cloud and software revenue grew by 20% or 12% at constant
currencies and exceeded the outlook of 8% - 10% growth at constant
currencies. New cloud bookings, the key measure for SAP's sales success in
the cloud, increased 103% in the full year to EUR0.89 billion and 75% in
the fourth quarter to EUR0.35 billion (*). Non-IFRS cloud subscriptions and
support revenue was EUR2.30 billion (EUR2.00 billion (**) at constant
currencies, achieving the outlook of EUR1.95 to EUR2.05 billion at constant
currencies) for the full year. Non-IFRS operating profit was EUR6.35
billion (EUR5.902 billion at constant currencies, beating the full year
outlook of EUR5.6 - EUR5.9 billion at constant currencies).

Customer adoption of SAP S/4HANA continues to accelerate sharply, with more
than 2,700 customers across all regions at the end of 2015, more than
doubling quarter over quarter. SAP S/4HANA, built on
SAP HANA, the most advanced in-memory platform available today, provides
the digital core that companies need to reduce complexity, digitize their
business and connect every part of their enterprise.

BUSINESS OUTLOOK

The Company is providing the following 2016 outlook:
- Based on the continued strong momentum in SAP's cloud business the
Company expects full year 2016 non-IFRS cloud subscriptions and support
revenue to be in a range of EUR2.95 - EUR3.05 billion at constant
currencies (2015: EUR2.30 billion). The upper end of this range
represents a growth rate of 33% at constant currencies.

- The Company expects full year 2016 non-IFRS cloud & software revenue to
increase by 6% - 8% at constant currencies (2015: EUR17.23 billion).

- The Company expects full-year 2016 non-IFRS operating profit to be in a
range of EUR6.4 billion - EUR6.7 billion at constant currencies (2015:
EUR6.35 billion).

SAP will report detailed preliminary fourth quarter and full year 2015
results on January 22nd.

(2014: EUR13.23 billion), an increase of 13% (6% at constant currencies).

billion), an increase of 20%. Non-IFRS cloud and software revenue was
EUR17.23 billion (2014: EUR14.33 billion), an increase of 20% (12% at

(*) New cloud bookings consist of all order entry of a given period that is
expected to be classified as cloud subscription and support revenue and
results from purchases by new customers and from incremental purchases by
existing customers. The order amount must be contractually committed (i.e.
variable amounts from pay-per-use and similar arrangements are not
included). Consequently, due to their uncommitted pay-per-use nature Ariba
and Fieldglass transaction-based fees are not reflected in the new cloud
bookings metric. Amounts included in the measure are annualized. Concur
contributed approximately EUR0.04 billion to SAP's new cloud bookings in
the fourth quarter 2015.

(**) For the fourth quarter 2015, Concur contributed approximately EUR0.16
billion to SAP's Non-IFRS cloud subscriptions and support revenue at
constant currencies. The Concur acquisition was closed on December 4th,
2014.
