"Cadence continued its excellent record of innovation and execution in the first quarter," said Lip-Bu Tan, president and chief executive officer. "We achieved strong financial results, expanded relationships with key customers and ecosystem partners, launched Innovus, our next-generation digital implementation system, to enthusiastic customer support, and Cadence was recognized in FORTUNE Magazine's 2015 list of '100 Best Companies to Work For.'"
"Successful execution of a sound strategy drives superior results," added Geoff Ribar, senior vice president and chief financial officer. "With the progress we are making on our strategy and confidence in Cadence's prospects, we are pleased to announce that we are replacing our existing stock repurchase program with an expanded program to repurchase $450 million over the next two years."

The actual timing and amount of repurchases will be based on corporate and regulatory requirements and other factors. The stock repurchase program may be suspended, modified or discontinued at any time.
