File photo of shareholders arriving for the German software group SAP general shareholder assembly in Mannheim, May 25, 2011. German business software firm SAP bucked the trend among rivals by keeping its 2013 profit forecast, buoyed by strong demand for its web-based software, though it warned volatile exchange rates could hit its reported results. Shares in the company jumped over 5 percent in early October 21, 2013, trading after it stuck by its forecast for a full-year operating profit of 5.85-5.95 billion euros ($8.01-8.18 billion) at constant currencies, up 12-14 percent from 2012.
