MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Synopsys, Inc. , a world leader in software and IP for semiconductor design and manufacturing, today reported results for its first quarter ended January 31, 2009.
For the first quarter of fiscal 2009, Synopsys reported revenue of $339.8 million, a 7.7 percent increase compared to $315.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2008.
"Synopsys' first quarter was characterized by solid financial performance, continued technology momentum and visible customer success," said Aart de Geus, chairman and CEO of Synopsys. "While the recession has clearly deepened and we have seen signs of customer stress, we believe that Synopsys is well positioned to help our customers weather the storm, and to emerge an even stronger company as a result."
On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 was $52.4 million, or $0.37 per share, compared to $46.4 million, or $0.31 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2008.
On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 was $71.6 million, or $0.50 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $66.0 million, or $0.44 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2008.
Reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP results is provided at the end of this press release.
Synopsys also provided its financial targets for the second quarter and full fiscal year 2009. 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 Year 2009 Targets: * Revenue: $332 million - $340 million * GAAP expenses: $280.5 million - $296 million * Non-GAAP expenses: $257 million - $267 million * Other income and expense: $0 - $3 million * Tax rate applied in non-GAAP net income calculations: approximately 27 percent * Fully diluted outstanding shares: 142 million - 147 million * GAAP earnings per share: $0.25 - $0.30 * Non-GAAP earnings per share: $0.39 - $0.41 * Revenue from backlog: greater than 90 percent Full-Year Fiscal Year 2009 Targets: * Revenue: approximately $1.37 billion - $1.40 billion * Other income and expense: $6 million - $10 million * Tax rate applied in non-GAAP net income calculations: approximately 27 percent * Fully diluted outstanding shares: 144 million - 149 million * GAAP earnings per share: $1.11 - $1.27 * Non-GAAP earnings per share: $1.60 - $1.72 * Cash flow from operations: $200 million - $220 million
Synopsys continues to provide all information required in accordance with GAAP, but believes evaluating its ongoing operating results may not be as useful if an investor is limited to reviewing only GAAP financial measures. Accordingly, Synopsys presents non-GAAP financial measures in reporting its financial results to provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate Synopsys' operating results in a manner that focuses on what Synopsys believes to be its ongoing business operations and what Synopsys uses to evaluate its ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. Synopsys' management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Synopsys' management believes it is useful for itself and investors to review, as applicable, both GAAP information that includes: (i) share-based compensation; (ii) the amortization of acquired intangible assets and in- process research and development charges; and (iii) the income tax effect of the non-GAAP pre-tax adjustments from the provision for income taxes; and the non-GAAP measures that exclude such information in order to assess the performance of Synopsys' business and for planning and forecasting in subsequent periods. Whenever Synopsys uses such a non-GAAP financial measure, it provides a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure as detailed below.

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:
* continued downturn and uncertainty in the global economy in general, and weakness in the semiconductor and electronics industries; * failure of customers to pay license fees as scheduled; * 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; * changes in the mix of time-based licenses and upfront licenses; * lower-than-expected orders; 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, earnings per share and tax rate on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for the fiscal quarter ending April 30, 2009 and actual expenses, earnings per share, tax rate, cash flow from operations and other projections on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for fiscal year 2009 could differ materially from the targets stated under "Financial Targets" above for a number of reasons, including, but not limited to, (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 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, (vii) changes driven by new accounting rules, regulations, interpretations or pronouncements, (viii) general economic conditions, and (ix) other risks as detailed in our SEC filings, including those described in the "Risk Factors" section in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2008. Furthermore, Synopsys' actual tax rates applied to income for the second quarter and fiscal year 2009 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 and year, and actions by the government. Finally, Synopsys' targets for outstanding shares in the second quarter and fiscal year 2009 could differ from the targets given in this press release as a result of higher than expected employee stock plan issuances or stock option exercises, 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.
