Synopsys Posts Financial Results for Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2016

Q3 2016 Financial Highlights

(PRNewswire) — Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today reported results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2016.

For the third quarter of fiscal year 2016, Synopsys reported revenue of $615.2 million, compared to $555.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2015, an increase of 10.7 percent.  

"In our fiscal third quarter, we again delivered strong results across the board and are raising our annual revenue, non-GAAP earnings per share, and operating cash flow targets," said Aart de Geus, chairman and co-CEO of Synopsys.  "While semiconductor consolidation has continued, investments in EDA and IP by semiconductor and systems companies are robust as they tackle highly complex designs within unforgiving market windows. Our state-of-the-art products, along with expert engineering support, are key differentiators for us. We are also making good progress in the promising new software quality and security market. Lastly, we continue to drive long-term shareholder value through prudent organic investments, value-creating acquisitions, and returning $325 million to shareholders in the form of share repurchases this year."

GAAP Results

On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2016 was $64.7 million, or $0.42 per share, compared to $55.4 million, or $0.35 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2015.

Non-GAAP Results

On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2016 was $116.2 million, or $0.76 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $99.7 million, or $0.63 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2015.  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 2016.  These targets do not include any impact of future acquisition-related activities or costs that may be incurred in the remainder of fiscal year 2016.  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, and (iv) other significant items, including restructuring charges and, in fiscal 2015, certain accruals for legal and tax matters.  In fiscal 2015, the non-GAAP tax provision excluded the income tax effect of above-mentioned 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. In fiscal 2016, Synopsys began utilizing a normalized annual non-GAAP tax rate in the calculation of its non-GAAP measures that is based on our projected annual tax rate through fiscal 2018.  In projecting this rate, we evaluated our historical and projected mix of U.S. and international profit before tax, excluding the impact of stock-based compensation, the amortization of purchased intangibles and other non-GAAP adjustments described above. We also took into account other factors including our current tax structure, our existing tax positions, and expected recurring tax incentives, such as the U.S. federal research and development tax credit. We intend to re-evaluate this rate on an annual basis for any significant events that may materially affect our projections, such as significant changes in our geographic earnings mix or significant tax law changes in major jurisdictions where we operate. 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.
