Cadence Reports Q2 2011 Financial Results

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jul 28, 2011 -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) today announced results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2011.

Cadence reported second quarter 2011 revenue of $283 million, compared to revenue of $227 million reported for the same period in 2010. On a GAAP basis, Cadence recognized net income of $27 million, or $0.10 per share on a diluted basis in the second quarter of 2011, compared to net income of $49 million, or $0.18 per share on a diluted basis in the same period in 2010. GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2010 included $67 million in acquisition-related tax benefits.

Using Cadence's non-GAAP measure, net income in the second quarter of 2011 was $32 million, or $0.12 per share on a diluted basis, as compared to net income of $18 million, or $0.07 per share on a diluted basis in the same period in 2010.

"Demand for our products and services in the second quarter continued to be strong with run rates on renewals increasing," said Lip-Bu Tan, president and chief executive officer. "We saw acceleration in adoption of our end-to-end digital solution at advanced nodes and very positive response to our new Cadence System Development Suite."

"The Cadence team produced excellent operating results in Q2 as we met or exceeded expectations for our key operating metrics," added Geoff Ribar, senior vice president and chief financial officer. "With the ongoing strength in our business we are adjusting upward our outlook for fiscal 2011."

In addition to using GAAP results to evaluate Cadence's business, management believes it is useful to measure results using a non-GAAP measure of net income, which excludes, as applicable, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, integration and acquisition-related costs, acquisition-related income tax benefits, income tax benefits related to the settlement of IRS examinations, shareholder litigation costs and charges, 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, losses on extinguishment of debt, equity in losses or income from investments, write-down of investments, and gains or losses on the sale of investments. Non-GAAP net income is adjusted by the amount of additional taxes or tax benefit that the company would accrue if it used non-GAAP results instead of GAAP results to calculate the company's tax liability. See "GAAP to non-GAAP Reconciliation" below for further information on the non-GAAP measure.

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

Business Outlook

For the third quarter of 2011, the company expects total revenue in the range of $280 million to $290 million. Third quarter GAAP net income per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $0.04 to $0.06. Net income per diluted share using the non-GAAP measure defined below is expected to be in the range of $0.11 to $0.13.

For the full year 2011, the company expects total revenue in the range of $1,115 million to $1,135 million. On a GAAP basis, net income per diluted share for fiscal year 2011 is expected to be in the range of $0.20 to $0.26. Using the non-GAAP measure defined below, net income per diluted share for fiscal year 2011 is expected to be in the range of $0.41 to $0.47.

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

Cadence management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various operating measures. These measures are generally based on the revenues of its product, maintenance and services business operations and certain costs of those operations, such as cost of revenues, research and development, sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses. One such measure is non-GAAP net income, which is a non-GAAP financial measure under Section 101 of Regulation G under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and is GAAP net income excluding, as applicable, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, integration and acquisition-related costs, acquisition-related income tax benefits, income tax benefits related to the settlement of IRS examinations, shareholder litigation costs and charges, 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, losses on extinguishment of debt, 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 the company 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 because these costs are primarily fixed at the time of an acquisition 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 such exclusion enhances investors' ability to review Cadence's business from the same perspective as Cadence's management, which believes that stock-based compensation expense 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. Cadence's management also believes it is useful to exclude costs and charges related to shareholder litigation because these costs and charges are not related to Cadence's core business operations. Cadence's management also believes that it is useful to exclude restructuring charges and credits. During the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010, Cadence commenced a restructuring program and expects to have paid substantially all termination benefits and costs by the fourth fiscal quarter of 2011. 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 as these costs do not occur frequently. 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.
