Any Tool. Any Scale. Any Time.
Synopsys, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNPS), a world leader in semiconductor design software, today reported results for its first fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2006.
For the first quarter, Synopsys reported revenue of $260.2 million, an 8 percent increase compared to $241.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2005.
"Synopsys has delivered another quarter of very solid results," said Aart de Geus, chairman and CEO of Synopsys. "We again executed well against our financial goals, and continue to win business based on our strong technology momentum."
On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2006 was $1.7 million, or $0.01 per share, compared to a net loss of ($14.3) million, or ($0.10) per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2005. GAAP net income for the current period includes a stock-based compensation expense of $18.4 million due to the implementation of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards 123® (FAS 123®). Net income prior to fiscal 2006 did not include stock-based compensation expense related to FAS 123®.
On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2006 was $26.4 million, or $0.18 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $14.7 million, or $0.10 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2005.
Non-GAAP net income consists of GAAP net income excluding stock-based compensation expense calculated in accordance with FAS 123® and, to the extent incurred in a particular quarter or period, amortization of intangible assets, in-process research and development charges, integration and other acquisition-related expenses, facilities and workforce realignment charges, and other significant items which, in the opinion of management are extraordinary. See "GAAP Reconciliation - Reconciliation of First Quarter 2006 Results" below.
Synopsys also announced its operating model targets for the second quarter and full fiscal year 2006. These targets constitute 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 2006 Targets: * Revenue: $262 million - $270 million * GAAP expenses: $263 million - $276 million * Non-GAAP expenses: $233 million - $243 million * Other income and expense: $0 million - $4 million * Fully diluted outstanding shares: 144 million - 150 million * Tax rate applied in non-GAAP net income calculations: 31 percent * GAAP (loss) earnings: $(0.02) - $0.03 per share * Non-GAAP earnings: $0.13 - $0.17 per share * Revenue from backlog: more than 90 percent Full-Year Fiscal Year 2006 Targets * Revenue: $1,055 million - $1,085 million * Fully diluted outstanding shares: 144 million - 150 million * Tax rate applied in non-GAAP net income calculations: 31 percent * GAAP earnings: $0.05 - $0.17 per share * Non-GAAP earnings: $0.65 - $0.73 per share * GAAP cash flow from operations: greater than $175 million * Revenue from backlog: more than 85 percent GAAP Reconciliation
Synopsys' management evaluates and makes operating decisions about the Company's business operations primarily based on the bookings, revenue and direct, ongoing and recurring costs of those operations. Management does not believe amortization of intangible assets, in-process research and development charges, integration and other acquisition-related expenses, facilities and workforce realignment charges and other significant extraordinary items are ongoing and recurring operating costs of its core software, intellectual property and service business operations. In addition, while stock-based compensation expense calculated in accordance with FAS 123® constitutes an ongoing and recurring expense of the Company, such expense is excluded from non-GAAP results because it is not an expense that typically requires or will require cash settlement by the Company and because such expense is not used by management to assess the core profitability of the Company's business operations. Therefore, management adjusts the following GAAP financial measures included in this earnings release to exclude such costs, to the extent incurred in a particular quarter: total cost of revenue, gross margin, total operating expenses, operating income (loss), income (loss) before provision (benefit) for income taxes, provision (benefit) for income taxes, net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share.
For each such measure, excluding these costs provides management with more consistent, comparable information about the Company's core profitability. For example, since the Company does not acquire businesses on a predictable cycle, management would have difficulty evaluating the Company's profitability as measured by gross margin, operating margin, income before taxes and net income on a period-to-period basis unless it excluded acquisition-related charges. Similarly, the Company does not undertake significant restructuring or realignments on a regular basis, and, as a result, excludes associated charges in order to enable better and more consistent evaluations of the Company's operating expenses before and after such actions are taken. Management also uses these measures to help it make budgeting decisions, for example, as between product development expenses (which affect cost of revenue and gross margin) and research and development, sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses (which affect operating expenses and operating margin). Finally, the availability of such information helps management track performance to both internal and externally communicated financial targets and to its competitors' operating results.
Management recognizes that the use of these non-GAAP measures has certain limitations, including the fact that management must exercise judgment in determining whether certain types of charges, such as those relating to workforce reductions executed in the ordinary course of business, should be excluded from non-GAAP results. However, 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 "Financial Targets," and "GAAP Reconciliation - Reconciliation of Estimated Target Operating Results" and certain statements made in the earnings conference call 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:
* weakness or continued budgetary caution in the semiconductor or electronics industries; * lower-than-expected research and development spending by semiconductor and electronic systems companies; * competition in the market for Synopsys' products and services; * lower-than-anticipated new IC design starts; * 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; * failure of our cost control efforts to result in the anticipated savings; * failure to continue to improve Synopsys' existing products; * failure to successfully develop additional intellectual property blocks for its IP business or to develop and integrate its design for manufacturing products; * difficulties in the integration of the products and operations of acquired companies or assets into Synopsys' products and operations; * downward pressure on maintenance orders, adversely affecting Synopsys' future level of service revenue; and * changes in the anticipated amount of stock-based compensation recognized on the Company's financial statements.
In addition, Synopsys' actual operating expenses and earnings per share on a GAAP basis for the fiscal quarter ending April 30, 2006 and actual earnings per share and operating cash flow on a GAAP basis for fiscal year 2006 could differ materially from the targets stated under "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) application of the actual consolidated GAAP tax rate for such periods, (iii) integration and other acquisition-related expenses, amortization of additional intangible assets associated with future acquisitions, if any, (iv) increases or decreases in stock-based compensation expense caused by employee termination or otherwise, and (vi) increases or decreases to estimated capital expenditures.
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 (SEC), and which are available at www.sec.gov, particularly the information contained in the section of Part II, Item 7 of Synopsys' Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2005 filed with the SEC on January 12, 2006 entitled "Factors That May Affect Future Results."
