Forward-Looking Statements

This press release and our upcoming earnings results conference call contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  Any statements that are not statements of historical fact may be deemed to be forward-looking statements.  Forward-looking statements include but are not limited to: sections of this press release entitled "Financial Targets" and "Reconciliation of Target Non-GAAP Operating Results"; and statements regarding Synopsys' business, acquisitions (including the expected closing of our pending acquisition of Codenomicon OY), products, technologies, business model, new markets, customer demand for our technology, and projected financial results and business objectives.  These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause our actual results, time frames or achievements to differ materially from those expressed or implied in our forward-looking statements.  Accordingly, we caution stockholders and prospective investors not to place undue reliance on these statements.  Such risks, uncertainties and factors include, but are not limited to:

  • continued uncertainty in the global economy and its potential impact on the semiconductor and electronics industries;
  • uncertainty in the growth of the semiconductor and electronics industry, and consolidation among our customers;
  • increased competition in the market for Synopsys' products and services including through consolidation in the industry;
  • changes in demand for Synopsys' products due to fluctuations in demand for its customers' products;
  • Synopsys' ability to realize the potential financial or strategic benefits of acquisitions it completes, including its acquisition of Coverity, Inc., and challenges in entering new markets in which Synopsys is not experienced and in the integration of the products and operations of acquired companies or assets into Synopsys' products and operations, including possible delays in customer orders, potential loss of customers, key employees, partners or vendors, customer demand and support obligations for product offerings, and disruption of ongoing business operations and diversion of management attention;
  • Synopsys' ability to consummate the pending acquisition of Codenomicon OY in a timely manner or at all, including the satisfaction of the conditions precedent to consummation of the acquisition;
  • adverse changes in the relationships between Synopsys and key participants in the complex semiconductor ecosystem, including major foundries and intellectual property providers;
  • litigation;
  • lower-than-anticipated new IC design starts;
  • lower-than-anticipated purchases or delays in purchases of products or consulting services by Synopsys' customers, including delays in the renewal, or non-renewal, of Synopsys' license arrangements with major customers;
  • changes in accounting principles or standards or in the way they are applied;
  • changes in the mix of time-based licenses and upfront licenses;
  • variability in the timing of revenue recognition due to factors such as payment terms and the timing and value of contract renewals and professional services projects;
  • lower-than-expected orders; and
  • failure of customers to pay license fees as scheduled.

In addition, Synopsys' actual expenses, earnings per share and tax rate on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for the fiscal quarter ending July 31, 2015; actual expenses, earnings per share, tax rate, and other projections on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for fiscal year 2015; and cash flow from operations on a GAAP basis for fiscal year 2015 could differ materially from the targets stated under "Financial Targets" above for a number of reasons, including, but not limited to, (i) integration and other acquisition-related costs, (ii) application of the actual consolidated GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates for such periods, or judgment by management, based upon the status of pending audits and settlements, to increase or decrease an income tax asset or liability, (iii) a determination by Synopsys that any portion of its goodwill or intangible assets has become impaired, (iv) changes in the anticipated amount of employee stock-based compensation expense recognized in Synopsys' financial statements, (v) actual change in the fair value of Synopsys' non-qualified deferred compensation plan obligations, (vi) increases or decreases to estimated capital expenditures, (vii) changes driven by new accounting rules, regulations, interpretations or guidance, (viii) fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, (ix) litigation, (x) general economic conditions,  and (xi) other risks as detailed in Synopsys' SEC filings, including those described in the "Risk Factors" section in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2015. Furthermore, Synopsys' actual tax rates applied to income for the third quarter and fiscal year 2015 could differ from the targets given in this press release as a result of a number of factors, including the actual geographic mix of revenue during the quarter and year, and actions by the government. Finally, Synopsys' targets for outstanding shares in the third quarter and fiscal year 2015 could differ from the targets given in this press release as a result of higher than expected employee stock plan issuances or stock option exercises, acquisitions, and the extent of Synopsys' stock repurchase activity.

Synopsys is under no obligation to (and expressly disclaims any such obligation to) update or alter any of the forward-looking statements made in this earnings release, the conference call, the financial supplement, or the corporate overview presentation, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, unless otherwise required by law.
