FINANCIAL RESULTS

San Diego, May 21, 2009

— Accelrys, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACCL) today reported financial results for the fiscal quarter and full year ended March 31, 2009.

“We are pleased with our year end results from both a financial and operational standpoint particularly in light of the worldwide recession” said Todd Johnson, Interim President and CEO of Accelrys. “We achieved profitability on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for the year and increased our cash balance by $5.4 million. We enhanced our life sciences and materials sciences offerings and released Pipeline Pilot Enterprise Server 7.5, the latest version of our industry-leading scientific operating platform. The new release includes enhanced enterprise-level implementation and security capabilities, thereby further enabling the broader deployment of Pipeline Pilot to our customer base. These enhanced enterprise-wide capabilities are enabling our platform to continue to gain momentum, as we have seen substantial increases in the use of our platform within our largest customers, including most of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies. This success combined with the increased competitiveness of our modeling and simulation products has us entering the new fiscal year stronger, more competitively positioned, and excited about the momentum in our business. This fiscal year we will continue to focus on our broader value proposition by offering integrated solutions that include our modeling and simulation products, our cheminformatics capabilities, and the power and reach of Pipeline Pilot, both to current customers and to new customers in new markets, thereby positioning us for continued growth.”
