Cadence Reports Solid Third Quarter Results

Investors are encouraged to look at GAAP results as the best measure of financial performance. For example, amortization of intangibles or amortization of deferred stock compensation or in-process technology are important to consider because they may represent initial expenditures that under GAAP are reported across future fiscal periods. Likewise, deferred stock compensation expense is an obligation of the company that should be considered. Restructuring charges can be triggered by acquisitions or product adjustments as well as overall company performance within a given business environment. All of these metrics are important to financial performance generally.

Though Cadence management finds its non-GAAP measure useful in evaluating the performance of Cadence's business, its reliance on this measure is limited because items excluded from such measures often have a material effect on Cadence's earnings and earnings per share calculated in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, Cadence management typically uses its non-GAAP earnings and earnings per share measures in conjunction with GAAP earnings and earnings per share measures, to address these limitations.

Cadence believes that presenting its non-GAAP measure of earnings and earnings per share provides investors with an additional tool for evaluating the performance of the company's business, which management uses in its own evaluation of performance, and an additional base line for assessing the future earnings potential of the company. While the GAAP results are more complete, the company prefers to allow investors to have this supplemental measure since, with reconciliation to GAAP, it may provide additional insight into our financial results.

Cadence expects that its corporate representatives will meet privately during the quarter with investors, the media, investment analysts and others. At these meetings, Cadence may reiterate the Business Outlook published in this press release. At the same time, Cadence will keep this press release, including the outlook, publicly available on its Web site.

Prior to the start of the Quiet Period (described below), the public may continue to rely on the Business Outlook contained herein as still being Cadence's current expectations on matters covered unless Cadence publishes a notice stating otherwise.

Beginning December 17, 2004, Cadence will observe a "Quiet Period" during which the Business Outlook as provided in this press release and the company's most recent quarterly report on Form 10-Q no longer constitute the company's current expectations. During the Quiet Period, the Business Outlook in these documents should be considered to be historical, speaking as of prior to the Quiet Period only and not subject to update by the company. During the Quiet Period, Cadence representatives will not comment on Cadence's business outlook or its financial results or expectations. The Quiet Period will extend until the day when Cadence's 2004 Year End Earnings Release is published, currently scheduled for January 26, 2005.
