Cadence's Second Quarter Revenue Grows by 12% to $321 Million

7/29/2005 - Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NYSE: CDN) (Nasdaq: CDN) reported second quarter, 2005 revenue of $321 million, an increase of 12 percent over the $287 million reported for the same period last year. On a GAAP basis, Cadence® recognized net income of $0.5 million, or $0.00 per share in the second quarter of 2005, compared to $4 million, or $0.01 per share, in the same period last year.

In addition to using GAAP results in evaluating Cadence's business, management believes it is useful to measure results using a non-GAAP measure of net income (loss), which excludes, as applicable, amortization of intangible assets and deferred compensation, in-process research and development charges, integration and other acquisition-related expenses, non-recurring executive severance payments, restructuring charges and equity in losses (income) from investments. Non-GAAP net income is adjusted by the amount of additional taxes or tax benefit that the company would accrue if it used non-GAAP results instead of GAAP results to calculate the company's tax liability. See "GAAP to non-GAAP Reconciliation" below for further information on our non-GAAP measure.

Using this non-GAAP measure, net income in the second quarter 2005 was $53 million, or $0.17 per share on a fully diluted basis as compared to $42 million, or $0.14 per share on a fully diluted basis, in the same period last year.

“We saw good growth in both our global accounts and geographic regions during the second quarter, confirming for us that both our technologies and our strategies are well positioned to help all types of customers meet their market demands,” said Mike Fister, president and CEO of Cadence Design Systems, Inc. “We are looking forward to CDNLive!, our new expanded user group meeting in September, where we will share more about our new technology and products with our customers.”

Added Bill Porter, senior vice president and chief financial officer: “Once again in the second quarter, we saw good results across our product portfolio with particular strength in custom IC as well as digital and verification. Our diversified portfolio is a significant driver of our consistent results.”
