Cadence Reports Q1 2009 Financial Results

Cadence's management believes it is useful in measuring Cadence's operations to exclude amortization of intangible assets, in-process research and development charges 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 it enhances investors' ability to review Cadence's business from the same perspective as Cadence's management, which believes that stock-based compensation expense is not directly attributable to the underlying performance of the company's business operations. Cadence's management also believes that it is useful to exclude restructuring charges and credits. During the fourth quarter of 2008, Cadence commenced a restructuring program that it expects to complete in the second half of fiscal 2009. Cadence's management believes that in measuring the company's operations, it is useful to exclude any such restructuring charges and credits because Cadence does not undertake significant restructuring on a regular basis, and exclusion of such charges permits consistent evaluations of Cadence's performance before and after such actions are taken. Cadence's management also believes it is useful to exclude executive severance costs because these costs do not occur frequently. Cadence's management 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 and expenses 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 the amortization of discount on convertible notes recorded under FSP APB 14-1 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. Cadence's management also believes it is useful to exclude the equity in losses (income) from investments and write-down 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 (expense) and are part of the company's investment activities. Finally, Cadence's management also believes it is useful to exclude impairment charges related to goodwill, intangible assets and fixed assets, and losses related to the liquidation of a subsidiary because these do not occur on a regular basis and are not part of the company's direct costs of operations.

During fiscal year 2008, Cadence's non-GAAP net loss also excluded costs related to Cadence's withdrawn proposal to acquire Mentor Graphics Corporation and losses on the sale of Mentor Graphics Corporation shares Cadence acquired as part of the proposed acquisition. Cadence's management believes that in measuring Cadence's operations it is useful to exclude the costs and the losses associated with this proposed acquisition because these items are not directly related to Cadence's operating performance and resulted from events that are not expected to occur frequently.

During fiscal year 2008, Cadence's non-GAAP net loss also excluded the impact of tax expense associated with recording a valuation allowance against Cadence's deferred tax assets. Cadence's management believes it is useful to exclude the tax expense associated with this valuation allowance because Cadence does not expect changes in the valuation allowance of the magnitude recorded in the fourth quarter of 2008 to be recorded frequently.

During fiscal year 2008, Cadence's non-GAAP net loss also excluded the impact of tax expense associated with Cadence's repatriation of foreign earnings. Cadence's management believes it is useful to exclude the tax expense associated with the repatriation of foreign earnings because it resulted from an event that is not expected to occur frequently.

Cadence's management believes that non-GAAP net income or net loss provides useful supplemental information to Cadence's management and investors regarding the performance of the company's business operations and facilitates comparisons to the company's historical operating results. Cadence's management also uses this information internally for forecasting and budgeting. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for or superior to measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures contained within this press release with their most directly comparable GAAP financial results.

The following tables reconcile the specific items excluded from GAAP net loss and GAAP net loss per diluted share in the calculation of non-GAAP net loss and Non-GAAP net loss per diluted share for the periods shown below:
