21 Aug, 2013, 16:05 ET from Synopsys, Inc.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS), a global leader providing software, IP and services used to accelerate innovation in chips and electronic systems, today reported results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2013.

For the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, Synopsys reported revenue of $482.9 million, compared to $443.7 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012, an increase of 8.8 percent.  

"Synopsys continues to demonstrate broad strength and innovation in technology and customer relationships, as well as excellent execution and financial results," said Aart de Geus, chairman and co-CEO of Synopsys.  "While our customers are dealing with yet another quarter of a relatively weak global economy, many have a sharp focus on new technology and continue to aggressively drive design activity.  The result is high demand for advanced tools and IP, areas in which we continue to lead and have a track record of excellence."

GAAP Results

On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $52.3 million, or $0.33 per share, compared to $75.7 million, or $0.50 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012.

Non-GAAP Results

On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $86.5 million, or $0.55 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $82.3 million, or $0.55 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012. 

Financial Targets

Synopsys also provided its financial targets for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2013.  These targets do not include any future acquisition-related expenses that may be incurred in fiscal year 2013.  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 2013 Targets:

  • Revenue: $500 million - $510 million
  • GAAP expenses: $432 million - $449 million
  • Non-GAAP expenses: $386 million - $396 million
  • Other income and expense: ($1) million - $1 million
  • Tax rate applied in non-GAAP net income calculations: 23 percent - 24 percent
  • Fully diluted outstanding shares: 155 million - 159 million
  • GAAP earnings per share: $0.29 - $0.35
  • Non-GAAP earnings per share: $0.54 - $0.56

Full Fiscal Year 2013 Targets:

  • Other income and expense: $8 million - $10 million
  • Tax rate applied in non-GAAP net income calculations: approximately 22 percent
  • Fully diluted outstanding shares: 155 million - 159 million
  • GAAP earnings per share: $1.51- $1.57
  • Non-GAAP earnings per share: $2.42 - $2.44
  • Cash flow from operations: approximately $400 million

GAAP Reconciliation

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) the amortization of acquired intangible assets, (ii) the impact of stock compensation, (iii) acquisition-related costs, including inventory fair value adjustments, (iv) other significant items, including facilities restructuring and the effect of benefits from tax settlements with tax authorities, and (v) the income tax effect of non-GAAP pre-tax adjustments as well as unusual or infrequent tax adjustments; 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 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.

Forward-Looking Statements

The statements made in this press release regarding projected financial results in the sections entitled "Financial Targets," and "Reconciliation of Target Non-GAAP Operating Results," and certain other statements, including statements regarding customer demand for our technology and predictable business model, are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. In addition, 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 uncertainty in the global economy and its potential impact on the semiconductor and electronics industries;
  • uncertainty in the growth of the semiconductor and electronics industry;
  • Synopsys' ability to realize the potential financial or strategic benefits of acquisitions it completes, including the recent acquisitions of SpringSoft and EVE, and the difficulties in the integration of the products and operations of acquired companies or assets into Synopsys' products and operations, including delays in customer orders, potential loss of customers, key employees, partners or vendors, customer demand and support obligations for product offerings, and disruption of ongoing business operations and diversion of management attention;
  • increased competition in the market for Synopsys' products and services including through consolidation in the industry and among our customers;
  • changes in demand for Synopsys' products due to fluctuations in demand for its customers' products;
  • adverse changes in the relationships between Synopsys and key participants in the complex semiconductor ecosystem, including major foundries and intellectual property providers;
  • litigation;
  • 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
  • failure of customers to pay license fees as scheduled.

In addition, Synopsys' actual expenses, earnings per share and tax rate on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for the fiscal quarter ending Oct. 31, 2013; actual expenses, earnings per share, tax rate, and other projections on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for fiscal year 2013; and cash flow from operations on a GAAP basis for fiscal year 2013 could differ materially from the targets stated under "Financial Targets" above for a number of reasons, including, but not limited to, (i) integration and other acquisition-related costs, (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 and settlements to increase or decrease an income tax asset or liability, (iii) a determination by Synopsys that any portion of its goodwill or intangible assets have become impaired, (iv) changes in the anticipated amount of employee stock-based compensation expense recognized in 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 guidance, (viii) fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates,  (ix) general economic conditions, and (x) other risks as detailed in Synopsys' SEC filings, including those described in the "Risk Factors" section in its latest Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended Apr. 30, 2013. Furthermore, Synopsys' actual tax rates applied to income for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2013 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 fourth quarter and fiscal year 2013 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.
