Means, Motives, Opportunity: why TSMC should buy Cadence, the Reunion Tour

Thursday, July 30th, 2015


It’s been 10 years since I first explained why TSMC should buy Cadence. Now a decade on, many things have changed in the world and many have not.

Among the things that have not changed? TSMC still should buy Cadence.

Means …

First of all, let’s look at the numbers (per Yahoo Financials re: 2014):

* Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd.

Employees: 43,500
Market Cap: $166.44 billion
Revenue: $27.31 billion
Operating margin: 39.26%
Net income: $9.70 billion
Total Cash: $16.61 billion on $7.40 billion in debt

* Cadence Design Systems Inc.

Employees: 6,100
Market Cap: $6.14 billion
Revenue: $1.61 billion
Operating margin: 11.23%
Net income: $161.1 million

* Conclusion

TSMC has got the means to buy Cadence.

By a long shot.
