MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 15, 2017 — (PRNewswire) —

Q1 2017 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: $652.8 million
  • GAAP earnings per share: $0.56
  • Non-GAAP earnings per share: $0.94

Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today reported results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2017.

For the first quarter of fiscal 2017, Synopsys reported revenue of $652.8 million, compared to $568.6 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2016, an increase of approximately 15 percent.  

"The first fiscal quarter was an excellent beginning to the year, as we substantially exceeded expectations. Business was strong across the board, amplified by the timing of hardware and IP deliverables. Our first quarter results and confidence in the year lead us to increase annual revenue, earnings per share and operating cash flow targets. In addition, we continued to return capital to shareholders with a $100 million share repurchase," said Aart de Geus, chairman and co-CEO of Synopsys. "Meanwhile, semiconductor and systems companies, as well as software developers across industries, continue to invest in many of the areas that enable the era of 'smart everything,' and our Silicon to Software vision and portfolio set us apart as a highly valued partner in these efforts."

GAAP Results

On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 was $86.6 million, or $0.56 per share, compared to $60.0 million, or $0.39 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2016.

Non-GAAP Results

On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 was $145.1 million, or $0.94 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $105.9 million, or $0.68 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2016. 

A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP results is provided at the end of this press release.

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 core business operations and what Synopsys uses to evaluate its business 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 certain accruals for legal matters. 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, as well as in Item 2.02 of the Current Report on Form 8-K filed on February 15, 2017 for additional information about the measures Synopsys uses to evaluate its core business operations.
