Cadence Reports First Quarter 2012 Financial Results

(April 25, 2012)

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/25/12 -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) today announced results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012.

Cadence reported first quarter 2012 revenue of $316 million, compared to revenue of $266 million reported for the same period in 2011. On a GAAP basis, Cadence recognized net income of $31 million, or $0.11 per share on a diluted basis in the first quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $6 million, or $0.02 per share on a diluted basis in the same period in 2011.

Using Cadence's non-GAAP measure, net income in the first quarter of 2012 was $47 million, or $0.17 per share on a diluted basis, as compared to net income of $23 million, or $0.09 per share on a diluted basis in the same period in 2011.

"Cadence is off to a good start for 2012, with strong operating performance leading to an increase in our outlook," said Lip-Bu Tan, president and chief executive officer. "We continue to roll out new technology, including the newest release of our Encounter digital design platform targeted at the 20-nanometer node, as well as new design IP products for memory, networking and high-performance computing."


"Our operating performance in Q1 gives us confidence that we will achieve our long term profitability and growth objectives," added Geoff Ribar, senior vice president and chief financial officer. "I am also pleased by the reduction in DSOs, accounts receivable and deferred revenue, driven by our ongoing efforts to match cash collections with the timing of revenue recognition."

The following statements are based on current expectations. These statements are forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially.

Business Outlook
For the second quarter of 2012, the company expects total revenue in the range of $315 million to $325 million. Second quarter GAAP net income per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $0.13 to $0.14. Net income per diluted share using the non-GAAP measure defined below is expected to be in the range of $0.17 to $0.18.

For 2012, the company expects total revenue in the range of $1,270 million to $1,300 million. On a GAAP basis, net income per diluted share for 2012 is expected to be in the range of $0.45 to $0.49. Using the non-GAAP measure defined below, net income per diluted share for 2012 is expected to be in the range of $0.66 to $0.70.

A schedule showing a reconciliation of the business outlook from GAAP net income and diluted net income per share to non-GAAP net income and diluted net income per share is included with this release.

GAAP to non-GAAP Reconciliation

To supplement Cadence's financial results presented on a GAAP basis, Cadence management uses non-GAAP measures that it believes are helpful in understanding Cadence's performance. One such measure is non-GAAP net income, which is a financial measure not calculated under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), and is calculated by taking GAAP net income and excluding, as applicable, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, integration and acquisition-related costs, including changes in the fair value of contingent consideration related to prior acquisitions, shareholder litigation costs, gains or losses and expenses or credits related to non-qualified deferred compensation plan assets, executive and other employee severance costs, restructuring charges and credits, amortization of discount on convertible notes, equity in losses or income from investments, write-down of investments and gains or losses on the sale of investments. Intangible assets consist primarily of purchased or licensed technology, backlog, patents, trademarks, distribution rights, customer contracts and related relationships and non-compete agreements. Non-GAAP net income is adjusted by the amount of additional taxes or tax benefit that Cadence would accrue if it used non-GAAP results instead of GAAP results to calculate the company's tax liability.

Cadence's management believes it is useful in measuring Cadence's operations to exclude amortization of intangible assets and integration and acquisition-related costs, including changes in the fair value of contingent consideration related to prior acquisitions, because these costs are inconsistent in size, are significantly impacted by the timing and valuation of those acquisitions and generally cannot be changed by Cadence's management in the short term. In addition, Cadence's management believes it is useful to exclude stock-based compensation expense, because it is based on many subjective inputs at a point in time and many of these inputs are not necessarily directly attributable to the underlying performance of Cadence's business operations, and such exclusion enhances investors' ability to review Cadence's business from the same perspective as Cadence's management. Cadence's management also believes it is useful to exclude costs related to shareholder litigation because these costs are not related to Cadence's core business operations. Cadence's management also believes that it is useful to exclude restructuring charges and credits. Cadence's management believes that in measuring the company's operations, it is useful to exclude any such restructuring charges and credits because exclusion of such charges and credits permits consistent evaluations of Cadence's performance before and after such actions are taken. Cadence's management also believes it is useful to exclude gains or losses and expenses or credits related to the non-qualified deferred compensation plan assets because these gains or losses and expenses or credits are not part of Cadence's direct costs of operations, but reflect changes in the value of assets held in the non-qualified deferred compensation plan. Cadence's management also believes it is useful to exclude executive and other employee severance costs because exclusion of such costs permits consistent evaluations of Cadence's performance. Cadence's management also believes it is useful to exclude the amortization of the discount on convertible notes because this incremental cost recorded as interest expense does not represent a cash obligation of the company and is not part of Cadence's direct cost of operations. Finally, Cadence's management believes it is useful to exclude the equity in losses or income from investments, write-down of investments and gains or losses on the sale of investments because these items are not part of Cadence's direct cost of operations. Rather, these are non-operating items that are included in other income or expense and are part of the company's investment activities.

Cadence's management believes that non-GAAP net income provides useful supplemental information to Cadence's management and investors regarding the performance of the company's business operations and facilitates comparisons to the company's historical operating results. Cadence's management also uses this information internally for forecasting and budgeting. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for or superior to measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures contained within this press release with their most directly comparable GAAP financial results.

The following tables reconcile the specific items excluded from GAAP net income and GAAP net income per diluted share in the calculation of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the periods shown below:

Investors are encouraged to look at the GAAP results as the best measure of financial performance.
