MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Synopsys, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNPS), a world leader in semiconductor design software, today reported results for its third quarter ended July 31, 2007.
For the third quarter, Synopsys reported revenue of $304.1 million, a 10 percent increase compared to $277.2 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2006.
"In the third quarter we delivered strong earnings growth and cash flow, and entered into very important customer alliances," said Aart de Geus, chairman and CEO of Synopsys. "We are confident about our position, and look forward to ending the year strongly and well-positioned for 2008."
On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2007 was $24.9 million, or $0.17 per share, compared to $7.6 million, or $0.05 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2006.
On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2007 was $47.7 million, or $0.32 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $30.1 million, or $0.21 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2006.
Non-GAAP net income consists of GAAP net income excluding employee share- 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 infrequent or non-recurring. See "GAAP Reconciliation" below.
Synopsys also provided its operating model targets for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2007. 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.
Fourth Quarter of Fiscal Year 2007 Targets: * Revenue: $300 million - $310 million * GAAP expenses: $261 million - $277 million * Non-GAAP expenses: $236 million - $246 million * Other income and expense: $3 million - $6 million * Tax rate applied in non-GAAP net income calculations: 25 - 26 percent * Fully diluted outstanding shares: 146 million - 151 million * GAAP earnings per share: $0.18 - $0.26 * Non-GAAP earnings per share: $0.34 - $0.37 * Revenue from backlog: greater than 90 percent Full-Year Fiscal Year 2007 Targets * Revenue: $1.195 billion - $1.205 billion * Tax rate applied in non-GAAP net income calculations: approximately 25 percent * Fully diluted outstanding shares: 146 million - 151 million * GAAP earnings per share: $0.78 - $0.86 * Non-GAAP earnings per share: $1.31 - $1.34 * Cash flow from operations: greater than $325 million GAAP Reconciliation
Synopsys' management evaluates and makes 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 infrequent items are ongoing and recurring operating costs of its core software, intellectual property and service business operations. In addition, while employee share-based compensation expense calculated in accordance with FAS 123® and change in the fair value of the Company's non-qualified deferred compensation plan obligations constitute ongoing and recurring expenses of the Company, such expenses are excluded from non-GAAP results because they are not expenses that require cash settlement by the Company and because such expenses are not used by management to assess the core performance of the Company's business operations. Therefore, management excludes such costs, to the extent incurred in a particular quarter, from the following GAAP financial measures included in this earnings release: 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 performance. For example, since the Company does not acquire businesses on a predictable cycle, management would have difficulty evaluating the Company's performance 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, 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.

Synopsys does not currently intend to report on its progress during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 or comment to analysts or investors on, or otherwise update, the targets given in this earnings release.
Availability of Final Financial Statements

The statements made in this press release regarding projected financial results in the sections entitled "Financial Targets," and "Reconciliation of 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; * failure of customers to pay license fees as scheduled; * 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 Synopsys' cost control efforts, including recent efforts to outsource certain internal functions, to result in the anticipated savings; * failure to successfully develop additional intellectual property blocks or to develop and integrate Synopsys' design for manufacturing and yield management products; and * difficulties in the integration of the products and operations of acquired companies or assets into Synopsys' products and operations.
In addition, Synopsys' actual expenses and earnings per share on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for the fiscal quarter ending October 31, 2007 and actual earnings per share and operating cash flow on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for fiscal year 2007 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 goodwill or intangible assets have become impaired, (ii) application of the actual consolidated GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates for such periods, or judgment by management, based upon the status of pending audits, to increase or decrease an income tax asset or liability, (iii) integration and other acquisition-related expenses including amortization of additional intangible assets associated with future acquisitions, if any, (iv) changes in the anticipated amount of employee share-based compensation expense recognized on Synopsys' financial statements, (v) actual change in the fair value of Synopsys' non-qualified deferred compensation plan obligations, (vi) increases or decreases to estimated capital expenditures, and (vii) charges driven by adoption of Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 108, "Considering the Effects of Prior Year Misstatements when Quantifying Misstatements in Current Year Financial Statements," which Synopsys is required to adopt during fiscal year 2007. Furthermore, Synopsys' actual tax rates applied to non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter and full-year fiscal 2007 could differ from the targets given in this press release as a result of a number of factors, including the actual geographic mix of revenue during the quarter. Finally, Synopsys' targets for outstanding shares in the fourth quarter and full-year fiscal 2007 could differ from the targets given in this press release as a result of higher than expected employee stock plan issuances, acquisitions and the extent of Synopsys' stock repurchase activity.
Synopsys is under no obligation to (and expressly disclaims any such obligation to) update or alter any of the forward-looking statements made in this earnings release, the conference call or the financial supplement whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, unless otherwise required by law.
