Cloud native EDA tools & pre-optimized hardware platforms
Synopsys, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNPS), a world leader in semiconductor design software, today reported results for the first quarter ended January 31, 2005.
For the quarter, Synopsys reported revenue of $241.3 million, a 15% decrease compared to revenue of $285.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2004, but in line with the Company's targets. The decrease was expected, and is due primarily to a lower percentage of upfront license revenue, driven by the shift in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2004 in Synopsys' license mix away from software licenses on which revenue is recognized when the product is shipped toward licenses on which revenue is recognized over the term of the license.
On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, for the first quarter of fiscal 2005, net loss was ($14.6) million, or ($0.10) per share, compared to net income of $32.2 million, or $0.19 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2004.
On a non-GAAP basis, for the first quarter of fiscal 2005, net income was $14.4 million, or $0.10 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $54.3 million, or $0.33 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2004.
The year-over-year decrease in GAAP and Non-GAAP net income was due primarily to lower revenue due to the license mix shift, increased compensation costs as a result of additional headcount added in fiscal 2004 primarily due to acquisitions, and, in the case of GAAP net income, in-process research and development charges related to the first quarter acquisition of ISE Integrated Systems Engineering AG.
Other income for the first quarter of fiscal 2005 was approximately $4.7 million, higher than expected due primarily to a one-time recognition of $3.9 million of cumulative and current quarter gains on the Company's yen-dollar hedges, based on a reevaluation of the application of SFAS 133 on the Company's hedging activity.
A description of the items excluded from non-GAAP results and a reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP results are contained in the section entitled "GAAP Reconciliation" below, and the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income included in this press release.
"Q1 was a very good quarter. I am excited to see the pieces coming together on a vision we have been pursuing for several years," said Aart de Geus, chairman and chief executive officer. "Across the board, our latest technology advances are showing success and the anticipation of new technology in 2005 is contributing to the momentum we see. We are also expanding our addressable market beyond the traditional bounds of EDA and adding significantly to Synopsys' competitive differentiation."
Fiscal 2005 Financial Targets
Synopsys also announced its operating model targets for the second quarter and full fiscal year 2005. These targets are forward-looking information and are based on current expectations. For a discussion of factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these targets, see "Forward- Looking Statements" below.
Second Quarter of Fiscal 2005 Targets * Revenue: $238 million - $248 million * Non-GAAP expenses: $222 million - $232 million * GAAP expenses: $258 million - $268 million * Other income and expense: $(2) million - $2 million * Fully diluted outstanding shares: 142 million - 150 million * Tax rate applied in net income calculations: 28% * Non-GAAP earnings: $0.06 - $0.10 per share * GAAP earnings: $(0.12) - $(0.08) per share * Revenue from backlog: > 90% of revenue Fiscal Year 2005 Targets * Revenue: $940 million - $980 million * Fully diluted outstanding shares: 142 million - 150 million * Tax rate applied in net income calculations: 31% * Non-GAAP earnings: $0.26 - $0.36 per share * GAAP earnings: $(0.29) - $(0.19) per share
These targets supersede all fiscal 2005 financial targets previously given by Synopsys. The full-year fiscal 2005 GAAP earnings targets above do not include the impact of new accounting rules requiring the expensing of stock options which take effect during Synopsys' fourth quarter of fiscal 2005.
Non-GAAP net income consists of GAAP net income excluding, to the extent incurred in a particular quarter or fiscal year, amortization of intangible assets and deferred stock compensation, in-process research and development charges, integration and other acquisition-related expenses and facilities and workforce realignment charges. Intangible assets consist primarily of purchased technology, contract rights intangible, customer-installed base/relationships, trademarks and tradenames, covenants not to compete, customer backlog and other intangibles. Non-GAAP net income is reduced by the amount of additional taxes that Synopsys would accrue if it used non-GAAP results instead of GAAP results to calculate Synopsys' tax liability.
Synopsys' management evaluates and makes operating decisions primarily based on the bookings and revenues of its core software and services business operations and the direct, ongoing and recurring costs of those operations such as cost of revenues and research and development, sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses. Management does not believe amortization of intangible assets and deferred stock compensation, in-process research and development charges, integration and other acquisition-related expenses and facilities and workforce realignment charges are ordinary, ongoing and recurring operating charges for Synopsys' core software and services business operations. Therefore, management calculates the non-GAAP financial measures used in this earnings release excluding these charges and uses these non-GAAP financial measures to enable it to analyze further and more consistently the period-to-period financial performance of its core business operations. Management believes that, although it is important for investors to understand GAAP measures, providing investors with these non-GAAP measures gives them additional important information to enable them to assess, in a way management assesses, Synopsys' current and future continuing operations.

The statements made in this press release regarding projected financial results in the sections entitled "Fiscal 2005 Financial Targets," and "GAAP Reconciliation -- Reconciliation of Estimated Target Operating Results" are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Actual results could differ materially from those described by these statements due to a number of uncertainties, including but not limited to the risk of:
* continued weakness or continued budgetary caution in the semiconductor or electronic systems industries; * lower-than-expected research and development spending by semiconductor and electronic systems companies; * lower-than-anticipated purchases or delays in purchases of software or consulting services by Synopsys' customers, including delays in the renewal, or non-renewal, of Synopsys' license arrangements with major customers; * unexpected changes in the mix of time-based licenses and upfront licenses; * lower-than-expected bookings of licenses on which revenue is recognized upfront; * lower-than-anticipated new IC design starts; * competition in the market for Synopsys' products and services; * failure to continue to improve Synopsys' existing products; * failure to successfully develop additional intellectual property blocks for Synopsys' IP business or to develop and integrate its design for manufacturing products; * difficulties in the ongoing integration of the products and operations of acquired companies or assets into Synopsys' products and operations; and * continued downward pressure on maintenance orders, adversely affecting Synopsys' future level of service revenue.
In addition, Synopsys' actual expenses and earnings per share on a GAAP basis for the fiscal quarter ending April 30, 2005 and earnings per share on a GAAP basis for full fiscal year 2005 could differ materially from the targets stated under "Fiscal 2005 Financial Targets" above for a number of reasons, including (i) a determination by Synopsys that any portion of its intangible assets have become impaired, (ii) changes in deferred stock compensation expenses caused by employee terminations, and (iii) integration and other acquisition-related expenses, amortization of additional intangible assets and deferred stock compensation associated with future acquisitions, if any.
For further discussion of these and other factors that may cause results to differ from those projected in this release, readers are referred to the reports which Synopsys has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and which are available at www.sec.gov, specifically contained in Part II, Item 7 of Synopsys' Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2004 filed with the SEC on January 12, 2005 entitled "Factors That May Affect Future Results." Synopsys is under no obligation to (and expressly disclaims any such obligation to) update or alter these forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
