Synopsys, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNPS), the world leader in semiconductor design software, today reported its results for the first quarter ended January 31, 2004.
For the quarter, Synopsys reported revenue of $285.3 million, a 6% increase over revenue of $268.1 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2003. Pro forma net income was $54.3 million, or $0.33 per share, in the quarter compared to pro forma net income of $52.5 million, or $0.34 per share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2003.
On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, for the first quarter of fiscal 2004 net income was $32.2 million, or $0.19 per share, compared to net income of $34.4 million, or $0.22 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2003.
Per share data for the periods presented reflects the Company's two-for- one stock split completed on September 23, 2003. Pro forma net income and net income on a GAAP basis are reconciled under "GAAP Reconciliation" below.
"Against an economic backdrop that is showing promise for the second half of the year," said Aart de Geus, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Synopsys, "we have forcefully moved the ball forward in our core technologies, as well as in our new growth areas. We feel confident that Synopsys is positioned first in line with customers as spending continues to pick up."
Synopsys also announced its operating model targets for the second quarter of fiscal 2004 and revised targets for the full-year, assuming the timely closing of the pending acquisition of Monolithic System Technology, Inc., (MoSys) announced today, and the pending acquisition of assets of Analog Design Automation, Inc., and taking into account the acquisitions of Accelerant Networks, Inc., and certain test-related assets of iRoC Technologies S.A., increased investment by Synopsys in certain business initiatives and the full-year impact of adverse changes in the dollar-Euro exchange rate. The MoSys and Accelerant acquisitions are discussed in a separate press release issued today.
The following targets are forward-looking and 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 2004 Targets: -- Revenue: $285 million - $300 million -- Pro forma expenses: $214 million - $221 million -- Other income and expense: ($1.0) million - $2.0 million -- Fully diluted outstanding shares: 160 million - 168 million -- GAAP tax rate applied to pro forma and net income calculation: 31% -- Pro forma earnings: $0.31 - $0.35 per share -- Upfront licenses as a percentage of product bookings: 30%, plus or minus 5% Fiscal Year 2004 targets: -- Orders: Greater than $1.4 billion -- Revenue: $1.200 billion - $1.250 billion -- Pro forma earnings: $1.30- $1.40 per share -- Upfront licenses as a percentage of product bookings: 25%, plus or minus 5% Effectiveness of Guidance
The targets set forth above represent the Company's expectations only as of the date of this release and assume the timely completion of the acquisitions of MoSys and Analog Design Automation. Although this release will remain available on the Company's website, its continued availability does not indicate that the Company is reaffirming or confirming its continued validity. The Company does not currently intend to report on its progress during the second quarter of fiscal 2004 or comment to analysts or investors on, or otherwise update, such targets until it releases its quarterly results in May 2004.
Pro forma net income is a non-GAAP financial measure under Section 244.101 of Regulation G. This measure consists of GAAP net income excluding, as applicable, amortization of intangible assets and deferred stock compensation, in-process research and development charges, integration and other acquisition-related expenses, facilities realignment charges and continuing charges relating to the Company's workforce realignment announced in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2003. Intangible assets consist primarily of purchased technology, contract rights intangible, customer-installed base/relationships, trademarks and tradenames, covenants not to compete and customer backlog. Pro forma net income is reduced by the amount of additional taxes that the Company would accrue if it used pro forma results instead of GAAP results to calculate the Company's tax liability.
The Company's 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 workforce realignment charges are ordinary, ongoing and recurring operating charges for the Company's 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 better 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 investors additional important information to enable them to assess, in a way management assesses, Synopsys' current and future continuing operations.
Reconciliation of First Quarter Results
The following table reconciles the specific items excluded from GAAP in the calculation of pro forma net income for the periods shown below:
Income Statement Reconciliation Three Months Ended January 31, (in thousands) 2004 2003 Net income on a GAAP basis $32,152 $34,385 Amortization of intangible assets and deferred stock compensation 34,484 28,783 Work force realignment charges resolved at a lower cost than estimated (1,141) -- Facilities realignment charges 1,772 -- Tax effect (12,947) (10,701) Net income on a pro forma basis $54,320 $52,467 Income Statement Reconciliation per Share Three Months Ended January 31, (in thousands, except per share data) 2004 2003 Diluted earnings per share on a GAAP basis $0.19 $0.22 Amortization of intangible assets and deferred stock compensation per share 0.21 0.19 Work force realignment charges resolved at a lower cost than estimated per share (0.01) -- Facilities realignment charges per share 0.01 -- Tax effect per share (0.07) (0.07) Earnings per share on a pro forma basis $0.33 $0.34 Shares used in calculation -- GAAP 165,864 153,278 Shares used in calculation -- pro forma 165,864 153,278 Reconciliation of Target Operating Results
The Company completed the acquisition of Accelerant Networks on February 20, 2004 and the acquisition of certain assets of iRoC Technologies on February 23, 2004. The acquisitions of Analog Design Automation and MoSys are pending with the completion of these transactions being subject to regulatory and other conditions. At this time certain acquisition-related charges and expenses, such as amortization of intangible assets and deferred stock compensation, in-process research and development and integration and other acquisition-related expenses, which are included in GAAP expenses but which the Company would normally exclude from its pro forma expense and earnings calculations, cannot reasonably be estimated. As a result and as permitted by Regulation G, the Company has not included a reconciliation of the target pro forma expenses and earnings per share to their GAAP equivalents for either the second quarter or full-year fiscal 2004 in this release. However, the Company is including in the following tables the impact on the pro forma expense and earnings targets of known charges and expenses that have been excluded from these targets. Investors should be aware that actual GAAP expenses will be higher, and GAAP earnings lower, than the amounts shown below because the currently unknown acquisition-related charges and expenses for the transactions mentioned in this release, when determined, will be included in GAAP expenses.
Information regarding Target Expenses Range for Three Months (in thousands) Ending April 30, 2004 Low High Target expenses on a pro forma basis $214,000 $221,000 Estimated impact of known amortization of intangible assets and deferred stock compensation 31,000 33,000 Estimated impact of known facility realignment charges 1,000 2,000 Target expenses on an adjusted basis $246,000 $256,000 Information regarding Target Earnings Per Share Range for Three Months Ending April 30, 2004 Low High Target earnings per share on a pro forma basis $0.31 $0.35 Estimated impact of known amortization of intangible assets and deferred stock compensation per share, net of tax effect (0.14) (0.15) Estimated impact of known facility realignment charges per share, net of tax effect (0.01) (0.01) Target earnings per share on an adjusted basis $0.16 $0.19 Information regarding Target Earnings Per Share Range for Fiscal Year Ending October 31, 2004 Low High Target earnings per share on a pro forma basis $1.30 $1.40 Estimated impact of known amortization of intangible assets and deferred stock compensation per share, net of tax effect (0.47) (0.48) Estimated impact of known facility realignment charges per share, net of tax effect (0.01) (0.01) Target earnings per share on an adjusted basis $0.82 $0.91
The Company will include final financial statements for the first quarter of fiscal 2004 with its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to be filed in March 2004.

The sections of this earnings release entitled "Financial Outlook" and "GAAP Reconciliation" contain 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 factors, including but not limited to:
-- 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 the Company's customers; -- lower-than-anticipated new IC design starts; -- increasing competition in the market for the Company's products and services; -- failure to continue to improve the Company's existing products, including continued integration of its products in the Galaxy Design and Discovery Verification platforms, which could cause the Company to lose sales or could reduce the Company's operating margins; -- failure of pending acquisitions to close for any reason; -- difficulties in the ongoing integration of the products and operations of acquired companies or assets, including Numerical Technologies, Inc., Accelerant Networks, iRoC Technologies and, if closed, MoSys and Analog Design Automation, into the Company's products and operations; -- lower-than-expected sales or greater-than-expected expenses relating to the Analog Design Automation, Accelerant Networks, iRoC Technologies and MoSys acquisitions; -- unexpected changes in the mix of time-based licenses and upfront licenses; -- adverse variations from currently projected customer payment terms; and -- continued downward pressure on maintenance orders, adversely affecting the Company's future level of services revenue.
In addition, the Company's actual expenses on a GAAP basis will be higher, and GAAP earnings will be lower, for the second quarter and full-year fiscal 2004 following the Company's determination of charges and expenses relating to amortization of intangible assets and deferred stock compensation, in-process research and development and integration and other acquisition-related expenses for the Accelerant Networks and iRoC Technologies acquisitions and the contemplated MoSys and Analog Design Automation acquisitions. Finally, the Company's actual expenses and earnings per share on a GAAP basis for the second quarter and full-year fiscal 2004 could differ materially from the targets stated under "Financial Outlook" above for a number of reasons, including a determination by the Company that any portion of its intangible assets have become impaired, changes in deferred stock compensation expenses caused by employee terminations, and integration and other acquisition-related expenses, amortization of additional intangible assets and deferred stock compensation associated with additional 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 documents Synopsys has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, specifically the section contained in Part III, Item 7 of Synopsys' Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2003 filed with the SEC on January 29, 2004 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.
