 Accelrys Announces Fiscal 2005 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Financial Results;
                           Full Year Orders Grow 12%

     SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 12, 2005--Accelrys, Inc. (NASDAQ:ACCL)
today reported unaudited financial results for the quarter and twelve months
ended March 31, 2005.

     Fourth Quarter Results

     Orders in the quarter ended March 31, 2005 increased 88% to $19.1 million,
up from $10.1 million in the same quarter of last year. The increase in orders
was due to strong growth in sales of the traditional Accelrys scientific
applications, a change in the company's sales year-end to March 31, and the
acquisition of SciTegic, Inc., which the company acquired in September 2004.
Revenue, which includes the impact of deferred revenue arising from the
company's switch to subscription accounting, increased 70% to $18.9 million, for
the quarter ended March 31, 2005, up from $11.1 million in the year-ago quarter.
     Expenses in the quarter ended March 31, 2005, were $29.5 million compared
to $29.3 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2004. Expenses in the March 2005
quarter include $1.5 million for severance and related costs arising from a
workforce reduction in March 2005. Expenses in the year-ago quarter included
$5.2 million for severance and related costs, and $2.3 million in transaction
costs arising from the spin-out of Pharmacopeia Drug Discovery, Inc.
     The company reported a loss from continuing operations of $(9.3) million,
or $(0.36) per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2005, compared to a loss
from continuing operations of $(17.4) million, or $(0.72) per share in the
year-ago quarter.
     The company reported a net loss of $(9.3) million, or $(0.36) per share,
for the March 2005 quarter compared to a net loss of $(26.8) million, or $(1.11)
per share, reported in the year-ago quarter. There were no discontinued
operations reported in the March 2005 quarter, however there was a net loss from
discontinued operations of $(9.4) million, or $(0.39) per share included in the
March 2004 quarter.

     Full-Year Results

     Orders for the year ended March 31, 2005, grew 12% to $85.2 million, up
from $76.0 million in the year ended March 31, 2004. For the full year, the
company reported modest growth in orders for its traditional Accelrys scientific
applications, and growth benefited from the acquisition of SciTegic, Inc., which
the company acquired in September 2004. Reported revenue for fiscal 2005 was
lower than orders due to the transition to subscription accounting, which caused
a portion of revenue related to orders booked during fiscal 2005 to be deferred
to future periods. As a result, for the year ended March 31, 2005, revenues were
$69.6 million compared to $79.5 million in the year ended March 31, 2004.
Correspondingly, deferred revenue increased to $42.6 million at March 31, 2005,
up from $27.8 million at March 31, 2004.
     Expenses for the year ended March 31, 2005, were $96.0 million compared to
$97.3 million in fiscal 2004. Expenses in fiscal 2005 include a $3.6 million
lease abandonment charge related to the move of the company's headquarters, the
aforementioned $1.5 million severance charge, and a $0.5 million write-off of
in-process research and development arising from the SciTegic acquisition.
Fiscal 2004 included a $5.2 million severance charge and $3.0 million in
transaction costs arising from the spin-out of Pharmacopeia Drug Discovery, Inc.
     The company reported a loss from continuing operations in fiscal 2005 of
$(24.1) million, or $(0.96) per share, compared with a loss from continuing
operations in fiscal 2004 of $(14.7) million, or $(0.62) per share.
     The company reported a net loss of $(25.2) million, or $(1.00) per share,
for fiscal 2005 compared to a net loss of $(24.8) million, or $(1.04) per share,
reported in fiscal 2004. Fiscal 2005 included a loss from discontinued
operations of $(1.1) million, or $(0.04) per share, while fiscal 2004 included a
loss from discontinued operations of $(10.1) million, or $(0.42) per share.
     "I am pleased to report that orders grew in fiscal 2005 for the first time
in four years," said Mark Emkjer, president and CEO of Accelrys. "I look forward
to improving our financial trajectory as we strengthen our competitive position
in the marketplace."
