Synopsys Posts Financial Results for Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2015

Q3 2015 Financial Highlights

(PRNewswire) —  Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today reported results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2015.

For the third quarter of fiscal year 2015, Synopsys reported revenue of $555.8 million, compared to $521.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, an increase of 6.5 percent.  

"Synopsys delivered strong third quarter results, and expects to exit the year with approximately 10% non-GAAP earnings per share growth," said Aart de Geus, chairman and co-CEO of Synopsys.  "Our new products are driving excellent customer design success and adoption momentum. In addition, we closed several acquisitions, further strengthening our IP portfolio and expanding our presence in the higher-growth software quality and security market."

GAAP Results

On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 was $55.4 million, or $0.35 per share, compared to $65.7 million, or $0.42 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2014.

Non-GAAP Results

On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 was $99.7 million, or $0.63 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $103.2 million, or $0.65 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2014.  Reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP results is provided below. 

Financial Targets

Synopsys also provided its financial targets for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2015.  These targets do not include any impact of future acquisition-related activities or costs that may be incurred in the remainder of fiscal year 2015.  These targets constitute forward-looking statements 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.

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,  (iv) other significant items, including restructuring charges and certain accruals for legal and tax matters, 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.
