SAN JOSE, Calif. -- 23 Jul 2008
-- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. today reported second quarter 2008 revenue of $329 million, compared to revenue of $391 million reported for the same period in 2007. On a GAAP basis, Cadence recognized net income of $5 million, or $0.02 per share on a diluted basis, in the second quarter of 2008, compared to net income of $60 million, or $0.20 per share on a diluted basis, in the same period in 2007.
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, which excludes, as applicable, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, in-process research and development charges, certain termination and legal costs, integration and acquisition-related costs, gains or losses and expenses or credits related to non-qualified deferred compensation plan assets, executive severance payments, restructuring charges and credits, losses on extinguishment of debt 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 the non-GAAP measure.
Using this non-GAAP measure, net income in the second quarter of 2008 was $38 million, or $0.14 per share on a diluted basis, as compared to $91 million, or $0.30 per share on a diluted basis, in the same period in 2007.
"Although we achieved our Q2 numbers, it was more difficult than we planned. Customers are demanding still more flexibility in when, what and how they purchase software and hardware,” said Mike Fister, chief executive officer. “As a result we’ve made the decision to lower our outlook and transition to an approximately ninety-percent ratable license mix. We believe this transition will enable us to keep our focus on the value of our technology. This decision is the right one for our business over the long term and for building and sustaining strong customer relationships into the future."
Kevin Palatnik, chief financial officer added, "A key metric for us, particularly as we move through this transition, is cash flow from operations. We are projecting cash flow from operations of $175 million in 2008, and $250 million in 2009."
The following statements are based on current expectations. These statements are forward looking, and actual results may differ materially. These statements do not include the impact of any mergers, acquisitions or other business combinations completed after June 28, 2008.
For the third quarter of 2008, the company expects total revenue in the range of $235 million to $245 million. Third quarter GAAP net loss per share is expected to be in the range of $(0.27) to $(0.25). Net loss per share using the non-GAAP measure defined below is expected to be in the range of $(0.11) to $(0.09).
For the full year 2008, the company expects total revenue in the range of $1.120 billion to $1.140 billion. On a GAAP basis, net loss per share for fiscal 2008 is expected to be in the range of $(0.54) to $(0.50). Using the non-GAAP measure defined below, diluted earnings per share for fiscal 2008 are expected to be in the range of $0.01 to $0.05.
