[August 16, 2017]

Synopsys Posts Financial Results for Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2017


MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today reported results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2017.

Synopsys reported revenue of $695.4 million, compared to $615.2 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2016, an increase of 13.0 percent.  

"In our fiscal third quarter, we again delivered excellent results and are raising annual revenue and non-GAAP earnings per share targets," said Aart de Geus, chairman and co-CEO of Synopsys. "Our strategy and investments are paying off. Demand for EDA and IP products is robust and growing, as semiconductor and systems companies tackle immense complexity in both chips and ever-increasing software content. We are making very good progress in the fast-growing software security and quality market, helping software developers from a wide range of industries navigate daunting security challenges. In addition, we continue to return capital to shareholders, repurchasing $100 million of our stock in the quarter, and $300 million so far this year."

GAAP Results

On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 was $116.8 million, or $0.75 per share, compared to $64.7 million, or $0.42 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2016.

Non-GAAP Results

On a non-GAAP basis, net income was $141.6 million, or $0.92 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $116.2 million, or $0.76 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2016. 

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

Financial Targets

Synopsys also provided its financial targets for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2017, which do not include any impact of future acquisition-related activities or costs. 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.

Fourth Quarter of Fiscal Year 2017 Targets:

  • Revenue: $642 million - $657 million
  • GAAP expenses: $586 million - $602 million
  • Non-GAAP expenses: $535 million - $545 million
  • Other income and expense: ($1) million - $1 million
  • Normalized annual tax rate applied in non-GAAP net income calculations: 19 percent
  • Fully diluted outstanding shares: 153 million - 156 million
  • GAAP earnings per share: $0.26 - $0.33
  • Non-GAAP earnings per share: $0.55 - $0.58

Full Fiscal Year 2017 Targets:

  • Revenue: $2.670 billion - $2.685 billion
  • Other income and expense: $4 million - $6 million
  • Normalized annual tax rate applied in non-GAAP net income calculations: 19 percent
  • Fully diluted outstanding shares: 153 million - 156 million
  • GAAP earnings per share: $1.92 - $1.99
  • Non-GAAP earnings per share: $3.29 - $3.32
  • Cash flow from operations: $580 million - $600 million

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, (iv) restructuring charges, (v) the effects of certain settlements, final judgments and loss contingencies related to legal proceedings, and (vi) the income tax effect of non-GAAP pre-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 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 August 16, 2017 for additional information about the measures Synopsys uses to evaluate its core business operations.
