News Release from:
23 August 2012
Synopsys has today revealed results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2012. For the third quarter of fiscal year 2012, Synopsys reported revenue of $443.7 million, compared to $386.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011, an increase of 14.8 percent.
Our business is strong, reflected in the excellent results we delivered in the third quarter, said Aart de Geus, chairman and co-CEO of Synopsys. We see our customers continuing to drive design aggressively, even in the context of an uncertain economy. The electronic design automation and IP industries are increasing in importance, and Synopsys in particular is well-positioned to accelerate innovation due to its combination of financial strength, technology leadership, global support, and strategic vision.
On a generally accepted accounting principles basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 was $75.7 million, or $0.50 per share, compared to $52.1 million, or $0.35 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011.
On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 was $82.3 million, or $0.55 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $68.1 million, or $0.46 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011.
Synopsys also provided its financial targets for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2012. These targets do not include any impact from the pending acquisition of SpringSoft, or other future acquisition-related expenses that may be incurred in fiscal year 2012. These targets constitute forward-looking information 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.
